Android handset makers need to stop doing this
But here’s one thing that I hate with the white-hot fury of a billion stars.
That that’s handset makers putting watermarks on the photos I take.
Here’s an example from the other day.
It’s not that big in real life, but it’s big enough to be a real annoyance.
This doesn’t catch me out often, and sometimes I can salvage the photo with careful cropping and judicious use of Photoshop. But sometimes it means having to recreate a shot, or living with the dumb watermark on it.
I get it that not much differentiates one Android handset from another, and that makers are all scrambling to grab market share, but this is annoying and offensive.
I can’t think of a single person that wants this feature.
If you’re suffering from this, you can normally turn it off by going into the Camera settings and disabling « logo » or « watermark » or « logo watermark » or something similar.
