...and the start of having to play the OLED screen lottery. They have yellow screens, blotches and dead pixels too. Oh and burn-in.
Huh, never had a problem with my last three OLED phones. Of course I have no issues with my 6s Plus screen either. Well, it doesn't look quite as good but that's just the difference in technology.
There are always people who have no problems. They're either extremely lucky, not so observant, or in the case of burn-in etc they don't use their phones enough to get it.
Seems to be a lot of assumptions and extrapolation in that article that really says nothing but click bait.
Within my family we have owned at least 20 iPhones and never had a defective screen, and I'm not lucky, I'm pretty observant, and I use my phones a lot (as do my family members). None of us are OCD.
The number of people for whom perfection is the minimum standard is pretty small.
I can appreciate how a person of discernment, who is paying a lot of money for a product, is likely to be more demanding than the average Joe/Jane. However, I don't think it's "luck" that the vast majority of iPhone and iPad owners do not detect such "flaws." These may be expensive products (relatively speaking), but they're not built or sold for the connoisseur market ($100,000 home theater systems, $200/person restaurant meals, $500 bottles of wine, etc.). They are designed and built (and quality-controlled) to satisfy the vast majority of consumers - people who may not have had their senses honed to quite such elevated levels. So yeah, you can say, "not so observant," but if you do, please say it with charity.
Speaking as someone who has made his living with his ears and his eyes, discernment can be a curse. Is it magical when everything comes together (great source material, great artistic execution, great technical quality)? Of course. But if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with! The quality of an LCD display has to be a good bit worse than those used by Apple before it substantially detracts from my enjoyment of a good movie, or undermines my pride in the photos I'm showing off. When I made recordings and when I make photos, my first task is to make the work speak eloquently under even mediocre listening/viewing conditions. The rest is icing on the cake.
I was just saying that there are people who never have problems, and then there are people who take back five or six iPhones in a four week period because they're defective. There seems to be a camp here that thinks anyone who finds fault with an iPhone suffers from OCD. Sure there are some OCDers out there but there are also a lot of faulty devices being churned out. My point was basically that someone saying three OLED screens were fault-free does not mean that the tech is any more perfect than LCD. I would actually prefer to stick with LCD because I hate burn-in.
I wasn't specifically referring to you. Just speaking in general.
I'll believe it when I see it. The lottery that is.
Haven't had a single issue with any of the screens on my iPhones over the years. And I'm definitely picky.
Ya, what he said above. Re-read the entire article, and you will see words such as "Rumor" "Discussions" "Will have to build factory"
You do know that the iPhone 7 is coming out in about 10 months and they probably already have that design in stone by now, including screen. Maybe perhaps for the 8 not the 7
