Re: I'm still unclear who the target audience is
"What's the correct phone shape? A 5.5" Galaxy Note?"
Candybars seem to be the preferred shape. Candybars with bits poking out not so much.
DPReview, DxOMark, pretty much all the objective reviews. It's the best camera-in-a-phone on the market by a healthy margin but it was found lacking compared to the modern compact cameras. It's a small sensor and a tiny lens. Nokia can't beat physics.
"First you're saying it's not as good, now you're saying it is better but no one cares - which is it?"
You failed to comprehend the point I attempted to make. It's worse than a dedicated camera. It's better than other cameraphones. But it's less convenient than other cameraphones, and the lesson of MP3s is that convenience trumps quality.
