I would point out something that almost everyone in the field of photography has known for over 30+ years. The Zeiss and Leica optics on the Sony cameras and smartphones as well as the Leica lenses on the Panasonic cameras are NOT made by Zeiss and Leica. They are made by Sony and Panasonic to Zeiss and Leica specifications. It was much more important back in the "Darkroom Ages" when the name meant German lens technology which had a superior reputation over Japanese lens technology. As a matter of fact the new "L"
lenses made by Sigma for Leica and Panasonic cameras are the next step in that arrangement while Sony“s is to obviate the Zeiss name by producing their G and G Master lenses. One or both of them may still produce the same models with the Zeiss and Leica names, but they may fade into history in a decade or so.

As an addition to my previous comment after having a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge for several years I used to charge it wirelessly with a base charger. Both my wife and I have previously had trouble with the charging port on Samsung's and believe that this is or has been a weakness on this particular brand.

Now the Google Pixel 4a 5g does not support base charging and requires that the cable be plugged into the charging port. Now rather than wasting my base chargers I found on Amazon a wireless charging receiver now I can use my base chargers again.

The receiver plus into the charging port and if I wanted to connect to a computer then I would have to remove this but I can transfer files by cloud if necessary.

I assume this is better now.

I've just acquired a Pixel 4a 5g from a technology benefit scheme through my workplace.

I'm quite happy with it. After having a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge the Pixel handles quite well in comparison.

The Google Pixel 4a 5g does not have a memory expansion slot for a Micro SD card but it does have 128GB of memory so this should be sufficient for most users.

If it hasn't got a stylus it's not a Note, just trading on the real thing's name.

So why not just say it's the best cameraphone, but as a smartphone it's not ideal.

I am sure these new phones at these prices are the equivalent in terms of DSLR' s in the top end bracket . Not knowing the mobile market all that well I am told that the Huawei P Smart 2019, available from Tescos on a 2 year contract at £ 13.49 per month, all calls included, takes good pictures as well. Would be interested to know what EPZ thinks of the P Smart. David

Now it would be quite instructive to review the OPPO A9 2020 as it seems to be pretty close to this XIAOMI
Many thanks in advance !!!
Sincerely
