Loving the 14pm in day to day usage. Not sure about the always on screen. Doesnt really do anything for me positively, and basically make the battery life identical to my 12pm that was at 87% capacity. So…. Maybe give it another day or two and that is getting shut off.

I will say - im not seeing anything major with the camera. 12pm was solid, so is this… and ive taken some great photos. Just not blown away. Maybe ill prove my self wrong. Not really a complaint or anything, just my reaction so far

I’m digging the always on screen. In my car the CD slot MagSafe charger covers up my dashboard clock. So the always on screen gives me a clock now and good charging since 99% of the screen is off. Plus on my nightstand I can just glance over and see the time now too without it lighting up the room.

If you aren’t shooting in raw and or low light you probably won’t see a big difference. In ideal conditions even an ok camera is going to look good. The main benefit for the 48mp is going to be low light and or raw pics for more information.

That may look good on a tiny screen but it looks pretty bad on a full sized display. Maybe my samsung camera doesn't suck as bad as I think it does... maybe all phone cameras just look bad to me since I've gotten used to using real cameras :o


You can kinda see where the software was trying to salvage things

There is that bit out of focus on the tip. Although at macro on a real camera you could blur that out too :dunno:

Teach me how to be so awful as a husband that my wife decides to pay me and give me everything to fuck off

Also, if you haven't already I suggest you consider a VCM defeat device like this for your 3.5l ticking time bomb. I've installed 3 now (1 preemptively, 2 after issues showed up, one of those 2 needed a full engine rebuild because it was too late)

First off, she didn't have a choice in paying me. It was my decision to move out, file and tell HER to fuck off. SHE was an awful wife and it was my choice to end it. She's a pharmacist and we were married for almost 10 years. Do the math.

Oh so she was the breadwinner and you stayed just long enough to be entitled to standard of life compensation
