Do you guys think Apple will anytime soon switch to a edge to edge display like without Bezels kind of display for the iPad, just like a couple of Samsung Phones which are available ?
Doesn't mean it's a good idea. Sometimes, just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be done. I don't think I'd like no bezels and nowhere to hold the device without blocking the screen. But I'm sure Apple is capable of producing such a device. Whether or not they will is anyone's guess.How come Samsung has it then ? Display matters to Samsung also the same rule of hands/thumbs blocking the screen is a constraint to it also. Yet it has it.
And that means it's a good user design choice....why?How come Samsung has it then ? Display matters to Samsung also the same rule of hands/thumbs blocking the screen is a constraint to it also. Yet it has it.
For phones, maybe. I can see how you might be able to just hold them by the edge, and not need bezels for your fingers to rest. The iPhone has almost no side bezel, just the top and bottom bezels for camera/sensors and home button. But a tablet is too big to just hold by the edges. I think you need bezels for the fingers to rest.Samsung has already proven with its phone that it can be done ! It is possible !
But a phone can be cradled in such a way as to not block the screen. An iPad cannot from my experience.Have you actually tried a bezel-less device? My current phone is the Sharp Aquos Crystal. It has no bezel on the top and sides. In nearly 2 years of usage, it has not been a nightmare.
Then I guess you should never buy any type of device ever, be it a car, a fridge, TV, tablet, cell phone.I am worried if I buy an 9.7" iPad Pro now, only on condition that I wanna keep it for atleast 3-4 years do not have the moolah to upgrade every year and what if Apple completely comes up with a overhauled, new, display design for the iPad in the next 3-4 years my money has gone down the drain ! Technological bumps (Processor/RAM) I dont mind can't stop that but design overhaul that hurts ! If it is gonna happen say next year or so...
tell him to buy an eboda tabletThen I guess you should never buy any type of device ever, be it a car, a fridge, TV, tablet, cell phone.
If you get 3-4 years of use out of a product, it's not "money down the drain". Frankly, if a design overhaul happens, you can still sell your current device for far more money back than you'd get out of any other type of tablet.
Certainly not a 12.9" iPad. A 9.7 iPad can, and an iPad Mini most definitely. People said a bezel-less phone would not be possible, that it would be a "nightmare". It is possible and it works quite well. It could be that way on tablets as well.But a phone can be cradled in such a way as to not block the screen. An iPad cannot from my experience.
