Rumor: Poor fingerprint sensor, LCD driver yields to impact 'iPhone 5S' shipments - Page 2

post #41 of 65

The fingerprint thing it's a good thing, but if it comes without NFC it's half baked and almost useless. It's still a good innovation but... too little and too late.

Nope. Do a sentance diagram (do they even still teach that anymore?) and you'll see that "smaller" is correct.

Making plastic toys is much different than the level of fit and finish an iPhone brings.

I'm not sure why either is needed.

The choice is simple...Skoda or Mercedes.  Choose your price point and enjoy the quality that comes with it.

It's just not reported when they have troubles, which they surely have, because as signaled by the smash and grab thief who stole a bunch of iPhones and got caught having left his Samsung behind: no one cares about Sam or HTC. Reporting is about the important.

NFC strikes me as similar to LTE: until there's sufficient places to use the thing why bother burdening your device with a useless bit of toy? NFC might become a common utility or it may not (with optical scanning being more secure etc.).

If the 5S is using the same LCD as the 5 I don't see why there would be LCD driver issues, if there are then I think its because the 5S is moving to an IGZO display instead - here's hoping!

Yet another Bogus unfounded.. Manipulative article !
post #52 of 65
Of course, because Apple doesn't have any experience shipping devices with displays and such. This is all totally new to them and they don't know how to figure things out so everything will be delayed.

That's not how handheld computers worked on Star Trek. Honestly.

That's the speculated rumor.

Would you like some cheese with your whine?

 

I micturate in your general direction.

IGZO, and the accompanying battery life extension, would tempt me.

If Apple is in fact making a phone with a fingerprint sensor, I hope they'll make sure it's flawless before releasing it.  That is the kind of tech that you want to be rock solid and not fiddly at all.

Wow as soon as I saw the source Digitimes I ended the read.   Why anyone would listen to the national inquirer of tech news is beyond me.  Actually the National Inquirer gets things right more often then Digitimes.

Look at the source "DigiTimes".  Dont ever base reality on what those morons say.

Actually if you read the tech columns you would find that HTC had terrible manufacturing issues getting there latest HTC one out the door it was delayed 4 times then was available for about 3 months in limited quantities.   As for samsung they just poop out plastic crap and let you worry about the problems.  With them it does not really matter because they will have a new iteration of that phone in a month anyway and call it new and improved.  What they meant to say was "we fixed what was wrong with the first iteration".  I think at current count there are 12 different models of the GS4 line not including carrier specifics.

Unsurprisingly, smartphone fingerprint sensors are already rolling out. One of the first phones to incorporate it comes from Pantech, big in Korea but almost unheard of in the US. One of the other Apple rumor sites mentions that fingerprint sensors on smartphones are the "new black" and several vendors are including them.
