For anyone considering buying an unlocked iPhone 11, apparently none of those IMEI numbers are in verizon's database.  Thus, if you try to activate a verizon plan (or a reseller's verizon plan like Page Plus Cellular) you will be told that your spiffy new phone is not compatible with verizon.

This is 100% BS.  Verizon has a long history of being *very* slow to add unlocked IMEIs to their database.

For anyone trying to get an unlocked IMEI into Verizon's database, I suggest doing chat or calling 888-294-6804 and ask for the tech support team.  Worked for me.   The chat rep told me they "filled out a form" and my IMEI will be added to the verizon database in 24-72 hours.

both sets of photos i just looked at in this thread physically hurt my eyes. too much brightness with the HDR, maybe. i'm sure i'll get used to it, but it's a little much.

I was thinking they had a bit of color cast but maybe it is the saturation. One thing I like about the pixel is that the pictures are pretty natural looking while still being saturated enough at default settings.

Curious how you got the sunbursts, did you add a filter?

No filter, straight out of the phone.....my post processing was very light, the photos can stand on their own.

When the pictures are viewed on my phone, or another iphone, if I  hold my finger on the pic it becomes a short movie with sound, maybe two seconds. Weird but cool.

The pics were likely taken with 'live' mode turned on.

Pixel 4 was officially announced today.  Only a 2x optical zoom (was rumored to be 5x).  What a letdown from a camera perspective vs. the iphone 11.

The iPhone 11 only has a 2x optical zoom. If someone thinks an upgraded display and camera is worth an extra $400, they could get 5 x from an iPhone 11 pro. To me, the Pro seemed way overpriced. Basically it is Apple sticking it to those who simply must have the absolute top of the line. And the Pro Max, at $550 more than the 11, gives a whopping 6.4 inch screen. But the 11's screen is 6.1 inches. Another $150 thrown away. For me, $750 minus a $250 rebate didn't seem excessive for the 11, but $1300 minus the $250 did. (All price comparisons assume that 64 gb with no ability to ever expand memory is insufficient, so I have included one memory level upgrade is each price. The upgrade on the 11 is to 128 gb and costs $50, that option is not available on the Pro models. The cheapest upgrade on them is $150 to bring the memory to 256 gb. Prices are from Xfinity mobile, have no activation fees or contracts, other than keeping an Xfinity mobile account open and paid for three months to get the $250 rebate. A plan with them can be had for $15/month incluing all taxes and fees.)

Pixel 4's direct competition would be the 11 Pro which also has ultra wide angle.  The Pixel 3 had camera and low price going for it.  I think the Pixel 4 is going to be a hard sell for Google without the anticipated 5x optical zoom.  Not sure low end astrophotography is going to offer that much appeal.

Yeah, and Apple Records hasn’t released new Beatles music in almost five decades.

Article on iPhone 11 Pro camera.  Lots of full resolution pics.  Includes "deep fusion" pics.
https://www.macstories.net/stories/iphone-11-pro-in-rome/

Anyone with an iPhone 11 can try deep fusion by installing the iOS public beta 2.

I got an 11 Pro Max in hopes that it would have a better antenna.  I was only getting one bar of signal strength with my 8 Plus.  I took a big chance, but it worked.  Im getting three bars with the new 11 Pro MaX.
