I still remember when we used to bicker over iPhone vs Symbian, before Android took over the second part of that argument. I also remember when Xenon vs LED flash was the most controversial discussion in the smartphone world for several years - some of you may have been toddlers when that started. And I remember when apps weren't a thing, when 3G was the hottest novelty, when we thanked our lucky stars because companies stopped using massive proprietary charging and earphone ports, and when a smartphone with a 2.8" display (Nokia N95 8GB) counted as monstrous. Nowadays, we feel cheated when the second back lens in a phone doesn't bring a lot of improvement, or when the display's color shifts at an angle as if everyone is side-glancing at their phones all the time, when a device has a MicroUSB port and not USB-C, or when it takes a fraction of a millisecond longer for a swipe to register. Look, there was a time when you had to manually switch between WiFi and 2G every … [Read more...] about After 5 years with Samsung and LG, I moved to a Pixel 2 XL and… nothing has changed

Let me explain: 23. sgodsell (Posts: 5794; Member since: 16 Mar 2013) Bull, on the 78 nits at 50% brightness, considering the Z5 premium has a maximum of 500 nits. The Z5 is very bright at only 50%. Where did you get 78 nits at 50% brightness. Clearly you pulled that value out of your @$$. As far as battery life is concerned, it has really good battery life with that 4k display.

You’d be forgiven for thinking Apple is only company with influence over the 2018 iPhone’s final design, but if this report from BusinessKorea is accurate, then it seems Samsung and LG will also be heavily involved with the look of what may turn out to be the iPhone 8.

We’ve been hearing about foldable displays for a while, but they’ve always stayed in the realm of fantasy, often used only as eye-catching tech demos at trade shows.The report says the wait for foldable screens is almost over, and claims both Samsung and LG have ‘perfected’ a viable production version, complete with a body to match.
