Apple, the Camera Company

Vlad Savov, writing for The Verge:

For a show overrun with various visions of smart drones and smarter homes for the future, the present of CES was remarkably uniform. I saw more iPhones in the hands of CES attendees than I did Android phones across the countless exhibitor booths. From the biggest keynote event to the smallest stall on the show floor, everything was being documented with Apple’s latest smartphone, and it all looked so irritatingly easy. I don’t want an iPhone, but dammit, I want the effortlessness of the iPhone’s camera.

I’ve been spending time with a new Moto X this month, and the camera is definitely one of the sore points. It’s not about image quality, but the overall camera experience. Jumping over to the Android side of the fence shows you just how far ahead Apple is in this regard.
