Android P has a camera laser sensor toggle in developer options

Quite a lot of phones these days use a laser to get an idea of depth for focusing purposes, rather than only relying on phase or contrast detection. That includes the Pixels, which hide theirs beneath the trademark top rear glass window. Well, Android P introduces a toggle to enable or disable that laser, if you need it.

[Update: APK download and port for other phones] Nokia 8 gets manual 'Pro Camera' to better satisfy picky photographers

Back when Nokia was known for making Windows-powered Lumia phones, the camera was one of their most praised features, and part of their impressive performance stemmed from the Nokia Pro Camera software, which gave you a degree of manual control most phones wouldn't. This February at MWC, Nokia announced that the software would be coming back to its Zeiss-equipped Android phones, and now it is rolling out for the Nokia 8.

Using the LG G7's 'intelligent' camera sure is a lot of work

Smartphone manufacturers know that shoppers have a ton of options, so making your own offering stand out from the crowd is critical. But all too often we end up with a phone that feels like it was designed by its marketing department, with a smattering of buzz-hungry keywords that do little to impact the day-to-day user experience. Case in point: With the new G7, LG returns to the “AI” camera experience we first got to know on the V30S. And while it can occasionally be impressive, it also feels like a truly “intelligent” camera should be held to a higher standard than what we get here.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Gear 360 (2017) is $115 on Amazon (50% off MSRP) or $113 from third-party sellers

Phones these days have replaced many of the most commonly used portable appliances from the late 20th century. It's pretty incredible how something that's small enough to fit in your pocket has, for the most part, replaced cameras, camcorders, radios, paper maps, GPS devices, voice recorders, newspapers, credit cards — really, the list just goes on and on. However, 360-degree video cameras are not on that list, so if you aspire to shoot some quality 360-degree video, you'll need to purchase a separate device. Fortunately, Samsung's Gear 360 camera (the 2017 edition) is on sale on Amazon right now for just $115.00, which is half-off its current price on Samsung.com.
