It's not just that some 48mp camera modules are realy 12x4 type, it's also that some midrange cpu/gpu cannot process a full true 48mp image anyway, cannot remember right now exactly which series of cpu/gpu, if I can find link to the article, I will post it later..
DroidBoye, 28 Feb 2019Weak design? Are you bending your phone "intentionally" on a daily basis?"Intentionally bending" ? Again, when its test result is shows that its weaker than 90% of all the phone tested, its a cause for concern.
To be honest, i worry much more on that glass back and a little on if a bad drop could crack that simcard spot and bent it since my metal backed Note 3 pro actually very slightly bend in the sim card tray due to bad fall (with a case). only god knows what gonna happen with note 7 in similar condition.
Also not sure why people are hell bent on defending a bad engineering done on this phone. I'm Xiaomi user, advice some of my family and friends to use xiaomi due to its value, but again, i simply won't blindly support a bad case of engineering done by xiaomi especially where its previous product, note 5/6 and the mostly plastic sibling poco survive similar test.
Note 7 simply is inferior in durability. it's a fact, something that i accept. i still love xiaomi for its value, still looking forward to note 7 pro and i may bought it well if not the upcoming redmi flagship or poco 2.

Poco F! have plastic back that is solid with the sides as a frame. Harder to bend then plastic frame that has glass in the back as separate part. And glass is fragile on everything. Even on flagship phones the glass is fragile.
This Zack bending test is a bogus too as you dont know how much pressure is added to bend anything. He has no pressure plates to test how much pressure he use with hes hands and it's hard to read from a video how weak it is to bend.

When i post something then the chance is that it will go to moderators check and that takes hours in time and sometimes even days and that happens to me when i am signed in too, so i dont see a point for siging in this site.

Anonymous, 28 Feb 2019Avoid, bend and cracks very easy. It was neither very easy not it was easy, appears from video that it was bit excess pressure than usually used by Jerry

BTW, it wasn't easily bent, it took much strain (visible on video) that too was not measured with any tool if it was same amount of pressure of excess than other tests
Smartphon, 28 Feb 2019Xiaomi must be fined for making megapixels a jokeHave you gone crazy or just jealous?
Did Xiaomi manufactured Sony and Samsung branded camera sensors for smartphones??

First, let Xiaomi launch it in other countries, then give remarks about pricing, why make conclusions based on assumptions?

moo.een, 28 Feb 2019why switch to 12 MP does Samsung no longer sell 48 MP sensors to opponentsRN7 Indian variant has Sony IMX 486 Camera sensor at back.
I would rather prefer a real 12mp Sony IMX over a GM1 giving 12mp output

I think some people here got paid to posted bad thing about the phone because they know this phone is the midrange phone, I mean, bent test ?? who care about a bent test, so you guy sit on your smartphone or what?

Anonymous person, 28 Feb 2019Check on YouTube, jerryrigeverything.It's not the Pro version m8.
Syn, 28 Feb 2019U seem to be confusing the Sony sensor with the Samsung 48mp sensor... Sony IMX 586 can do tru... moreQuad Bayer Filter, search it. Extra processing is needed to make them 48MP on both sensors. The only difference with GM1 and IM586 is the pixel arrangement, the concept is still quad bayer filter. Sony's advantage would only be better noise management but it's still a quad-bayer filter.
