I'm in the camp that would like a hardware orientation lock switch.
Even if they mapped the volume buttons so holding them both down for a second locked the orientation, that'd work for me.
Certainly better than no switch at all.
6" now huh. They really don't have an answer to Apple's iPhone do they!
They'll be in real trouble when they can no longer just increase the screen size and make a poor attempt at copying iPhone features.
Yeah, I suppose we all have bad teeth, live in castles and sound like Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins.No one uses checks (cheques). Many banks have stopped issuing check books years ago.I've not paid for anything in cash in a shop for years and the majority of sales I have seen are through a credit or debit card. We have a far higher rate of shops accepting wireless card payments, probably because we are further along the evolutionary scale when it comes to card payments. We...
Maybe GTAT are forcing Apple's hand. Apple have 2 choices, not invest the money they said they would and lose all the money they have already put in, or save the company and their investment by ploughing more cash into it.
TBH, if GTAT is that badly run, Apple should just buy it and force it to conform by replacing the key people.
Let's be honest, Apple will have known about this for a long time. There is something going on between the 2 companies. Sapphire is the next thing for Apple, they wouldn't let the company go under, not when they could buy the company 100 times over.
Maybe it's just stock manipulation to bring the price down so they can buy a bigger share, build the company up and sell the shares on for a massive profit.
That's a clever move by Samsung. They expect an earnings loss so call it long before it happens and claim a high expected loss so it looks good when they don't lose as much as they predicted. Way to subvert expectations. Either way, there'll be people spinning the story to make it good news for Samsung.
If you jump on the bandwagon straight away and install an untested iOS then you are mad.
In the history of every piece of software (especially iOS) , the first release is dodgy and the few following updates fix stuff and break stuff in equal measures.
Moral of the story:
Always give it a few months.
Shock! Short piece of metal harder to bend than longer piece of metal.
Call all the physics journals and tell them to hold the front page.
The other phones he has tried to bend don't have a flat back to them. The compound radius will deflect the bending.
These other phones are also thicker. Not a proper test.
On the flip side, that'll teach you for buying a ridiculous sized phone. Apple should never have made the 5.5" iPhone. It's just making the Android...
