Definitely better pictures than the Pixel but of course all the Pixel owners will never agree. Pixel is no match for this

I don't get the current obsession with phone cams. They all do a great job, and I couldn't tell you the difference unless you put them side by side.

I agree that most cell phones up to now had the wrong lens for portraits. I tried to make a passport picture with my Note 9 and I had to revert to the back camera to do it then edit and blow the picture. I like the fact that the OnePlus 7 is exactly of the same size as my Note 9 to buy a spare. I wont buy an S10+. I hope that the G5 version will be available in the States and sell on Amazon. It is the cell to beat, really. Also I find wireless charging useless on the go. I prefer fast charging. I agree that they lost the occasion of having a metal back instead of a glass back.

If you care a bit about colors, iPhone are still the best.

Absolute not. The yellow cast is far from best. It makes faces often look like the persons involved have a liver disease.

S10 and S10+ now allows photos to be taken with telephoto lens.
