Really interesting review of the clips camera. When I first saw it being demoed in October of last year I struggled to figure out what it was for. It felt like an interesting idea, yet I wasn't sure what problem it would solve for me, without creating more along the way.
I haven't personally had one so all I can do is speculate on this, but the 3 hour battery life means that at some point I have to worry about recharging it during the day or strategically plan when and where to turn it on and off. Also the idea that it automatically starts recording when it recognizes a face seems very creepy... And finally, the point about image quality is a deal breaker for me. In the age of amazing cameras inside our phones, I can't imagine wearing a much larger device yet with poorer image quality 😕
As you've said, maybe if I can come up with specific use case where this Google Clips can truly shine with a better image quality, I'll give it a try, but for now I'll wait and see.
