That’s gimmic fluff to me
When watching a 16:9 video with the full height being used, there will be black bars either side horizontally, one of which will include the hole.
I presume Samsung will provide the Hide Notch function which will dedicate the screen at the top and left of the hole, to status/system icons.
See top of my Huawei screen. Dark area in the middle of the row of small system/status icons is where the notch pysically is, but is unseen.
That’s kinda the answer I figured I would get. Not shocked no offense.
Sure Samsung users love their phones. Same with iPhone users...
But they are boring af
"I don't want to fold my phone."
In 2007, I recall people saying "I do not want to touch screen. $1T later, we all know how that turned out.
But isn’t this more operation than actually future hardware.
This is what we should be excited about in upcoming future smartphone tech?
Please not this again.
I bet it wouldn’t be if apple brought Apple Pencil support to the iPhone.
Or as boring as the person using it
Well, they do have to sit one out. Considering that Samsung does their screens for them, Apple does need Samsung to do the work first.
This is the screen used on the Galaxies S8 and S9.
Know what’s exciting? Being able to use a custom ringtone without needing iTunes.
I wouldn't call them thrilling but:
1. Always on display
2. I have a Samsung S8, it came from N and then updated to O and was not slowed down, Samsung will release and update for P on February, no worries that the phone will be slowed down.
3. When I bought it, iPhone X was not around and can't talk about the camera or display. But on every meeting, everybody wants a photo with the Samsung, iPhone 8 is not even close.
4. Again, compared to iPhone 8, a better display.
5. They came with fast charge (adapter included)
6. Home screen personalization
7. And Compared to iPhone X or Xs or Xr, this:
LOL, so true. That black dot though isn't that bad. I could probably live with that. But the notch is absolutely disgusting.
I pretty much agree with everything you said, except for why Samsung thinks people will pay $1500 for it. I don't understand why many people need to upgrade their phones every year, but many do. Maybe its a kind of status symbol to have the latest tech. If so, they're going to jump on a foldable phone because it's different. Forget whether its practical, functional, or durable. And if it proves to be popular, I'm sure Apple will find a way to offer something similar in their ecosystem, as refining existing technology is something Apple has long been know for. For my part, I wouldn't consider this device unless it was free until I knew more about its reliability. In all my experience, flexible electronics have been notoriously unreliable, and I haven't seen anything that suggests why folding screens are different.
As I understand, the lowest cost version of S10 will have a flat screen.
We'll see if your advance praise is appropriate.
Well, Almost all the premium top shelf Android Phones also sport a notch now... So.. Notch no longer an Apple Exclusive anymore!!
So don't. If I have a piece of paper I don't want creased - I don't fold it.
I'm intrigued to see how they are going to make this durable enough to last a week.
Who are you writing this to? Your fanboys can be found on other sites
My promise to you is this: if you don’t want a foldable phone you don’t have to own a foldable phone. You can keep your old phone. It’ll just be old. And it won’t fold. But it will still work just fine. Unless you fold it.
I want to fold your phone.
Seems about the same as the S8 and S9 from what I have read. Not too impressed with anything hardware related nowadays (Apple included). It all comes down to software and Android is still the same as it was 3 years ago. Apple is not all that better, but they have shown a willingness lately to make changes and I hope that continues with iOS 13.
So do people who like SE size phones never use a tablet?
Don't you think the venue was chosen for the purpose of provocation? San Francisco is not a cosmopolitan city with unsaturated customer market. Where's the pretty big deal on this?
(Brexit-London is now also no longer. Unfortunately.)
Let me help you out on this one to move this forward:
"So you're opposed to innovation?"
"No, I'm not, I see other fields with room for improvement first".
"Ok, got you".
"There you go, but interesting to see what comes out of it".
