    @MobileTechReview and @cbutters - darn you Lisa and Cameron, another great series of review. I've been steadfastly trying to avoid the urge, but your reviews have really made me think about uses I hadn't anticipated.

    Not yet, but...I also had to add kudos for Cameron (@cbutters) for a great series of reviews.

    The iPhone 11 Pro cameras and iMessage still have a strong hold on my heart...

    The camera is indeed a big hurt since many folks rely on (take for granted?) great phone cameras. This is a daylight-only camera.

    Have test the camera with the GCam app if that makes a difference or not?

    I love it when you give us a shout out. And thank you for trying Medibang Paint out on the Duo, been kind of curious how its interface would look on the 4/3 ratio. Don't suppose I could persuade you to also try and attempt running Clip Studio on your Duo? The installation might be a bit trickier since the lack of the Galaxy Store would necessitate a manual APK install, but since Clip Studio uses two different interfaces for Android devices depending on the screen size, I'm really curious how it would adapt to the Duo.

    Well done Lisa! That was a great review. Almost reached for my wallet before I remembered I have two daughters up for college.

    I tested GCam (one of the ports that actually runs at all) and the results aren't any better and it's pretty buggy. Maybe someone will make a port that works better. I'm going to try a few more 3rd party cameras, but the nifty MS party trick of switching screens while using the camera isn't something that 3rd party cameras are handling well so far.
