I still think the Pixel 5 takes some of the best photos of any smartphone, but that’s no thanks to the actual camera hardware. While competitors have moved on to massive camera sensors that strain the limits of what you can reasonably fit in a smartphone, Google hasn’t significantly enlarged the camera sensor since the original.

Sure, the company talked a lot about the non-invasiveness of transparent design, but at the end of the day, the product’s launch on StockX betrayed a focus on the fashion forward. In that respect, Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds 2 are the anti-Nothing. They’re almost aggressively unassuming in their approach. It’s in keeping with previous generations of Buds, but still in stark — and refreshing — contras...
