    Yeah, coming from a Note 4 I was looking forward to the Note 7, but, well, you know...

    Did you get the Best Buy deal with the speaker and battery mods and the BB gift card? That seems like a great deal.

    Thanks for your thoughts on the 2 phones - I appreciate the help!
    I did get the Best Buy deal, that really was the tipping point.

    I am really impressed with the JBL speaker. Works perfect for my use case. I work close to home, so I come home for a quick lunch. Nice to just slap the mod on and listen to some tunes or a podcast.

    And I have taken more pics today, they seem "darker" than the S7 Edge, but quality has been top notch

    Which mega pixel setting is everyone using? The 21 MP 4:3, or the 16.1 MP 16:9.

    21. No sense giving up pixels just to fill your screen.

    Yup. You can always crop it down to 16X9 if you want.

    It will take some getting used to, but I will give the 21 a try. Thanks!

    Great pictures. Is it my imagination, or does the camera have to "think" a little longer before the shutter engages at 21 MP than at 16 MP? It seemed that way this past weekend. I want to take a serious look at the Hasselblad camera mod to see just how responsive the dedicated shutter button really is.

    I've seen that. Also see a bluish filter before it focuses sometimes. The Pixel had that

    I have the Pixel and Moto Z Force Droid right now and trying to decide between the two. I was sent the 5" Pixel and it is too small but been on a back order for my Pixel XL for over a month now. I simply need 5.5" and need it fast, so test driving a Moto Z.

    I would attach some camera samples but for some reason, the AC forums are rejecting my photos from my Z Force Droid...they simply do not upload or appear. The Pixel photos, no problem...WHen I try to upload a Z Force Photo, it almost crashes AC...LOL

    Pixel uses a 12MP sensor. Z-Force uses a 21MP sensor. It could be that the Z-Force images are too large for Android Central?

    BTW, I like having a larger sensor, gives you more detail and the ability to crop images to zoom in. I'd gladly trade off some low light performance for added resolution.

    no major hardcore test here, but just snapping random pics with my Force after it got 7.0 seems to take pictures quicker

    I remember people saying that about each update as they occurred with the Razr Maxx HD, then with the Droid Turbo. Is there anything in the Nougat changelog that would indicate an improvement in the camera speed?

    Just tried because I haven't really played yet but it seemed faster, although the whole phone seems faster, which I didn't think was possible

    The camera mod isn't that good. If you need the zoom in good light, it's okay. But overall quality the force camera was nicer in my test

    Have you tried the other mobile app for this site. It seems to be more specifically for the forum user. Just my opinion, but I like it much better. The photos are also much larger when uploaded.

    I have that one and it uses a fair amount of battery for me, but perhaps I'm just on it too much.

    You made me look this up just to see. After 4 hours on battery I have 7% screen time and at the very bottom is this app at 1%.

    Ya know, admitting you have a problem is the first step. Lol 😁
