 If more light is reflected then, by definition, less is transmitted to the surface underneath, which then has less to reflect back through the button to the observer. It doesn't require any particular light source to illuminate it.
 Yes - that's an expected result, since the higher reflectivity of the sapphire means that less light is reaching the white surface underneath it. Similarly, if you look at reflected light from the front of an iPhone 6, the reflection from the sapphire is brighter than from the surrounding glass.
 Either way then - hardly a representative "real life" review, since most users will likely be buying the device, not borrowing it.
Photos "doesn't cut it" in what way, exactly? And the machine is a "no go" because they didn't bundle the $19 dongle with it? Are you serious?
 On what evidence do you assert that it is a "very narrow target group"? As the basis for almost the entirety of your argument, that looks very shaky to me.
In terms of creating albums, if you create an album in Photos and it will appear on your iOS devices.
I don't fully understand your privacy concern. Photos simply offers you the opportunity to store your photos on iCloud. It doesn't force you to, or even require you to opt out. And, even if you do use iCloud, it doesn't give anyone else access to them, unless you believe that iCloud, itself, is compromised. If that is the case then you are free to do as you have done – assuage your paranoia by avoiding iCloud altogether.
 I listed some of the improvements in post #20 - did you read that post? And I did not edit out the list of downgrades that you quoted - you added them to your post after posting, and after I quoted it. I really don't know what your problem is. iPhotos was a free application that has been replaced by another free application that does many things, especially photo editing, significantly better. It has, as I noted above, lost some organizational options. Not sure why,...
But apparently you are unable to say what features it lost from iPhoto, an application that you don't use anyway. And now you are complaining that it is "knocking off" Aperture, whatever that is supposed to mean. Are you now offended that it has included more advanced editing tools than iPhoto, and is trying to fool you into thinking it will replace Aperture? I suggest that you either get to the point (any point will do), or stop digging, because you are making no sense at...
I see - so now your argument is that Photos is inferior to Aperture? I assume that you did read the title of the thread, and noticed that the discussion is about Photos being much worse than iPhoto? Or perhaps not. And, in response to your request, I did list a number of features that are improved in Photos relative to iPhoto. If you want a replacement for Aperture then you are looking at the wrong app, and in the wrong thread.
