  • 2019 iPhone predicted to have triple-lens camera with super-wide lens, improved selfie cam...

    Not innovation. Already in LG V-series phones since 2018. In fact they have 5 lenses/cameras now.
    And they take mediocre pictures.

    My first thought when I read the headline was "Are people really buying this POS?!"..

    Then I realized it was just reviewers, who didn't have to pay for them... thank god!  Seriously... who is the sheep if anyone buys this crap, especially at $2K?

    Samsung already is a cesspool occupant as far as I'm concerned, yet even I am surprised that they put out such garbage - and expensive garbage - expecting it to be anywhere near ready for the masses.

    I cracked up when Marques Brownlee mistaken part of the screen as a screen protector and ruined the display after attempting to peel it off!  LOL!

    Pure shit.  Watch Samsung quietly remove it from market in a few weeks.  But hey, they were first!!! /s
    Samsung is evidently good enough that Apple uses their OLED displays in the X series which they spent years developing.   I hope they become a supplier of folding displays to Apple but it will take at least 5 years.   
    Those displays for Apple use Apple’s technology too. Apple has been working on OLEDs for some time, and has a lot of patents in the area. I believe that folding displays will always have problems. What OLED manufacturers were talking about, for years, were roll-up displays. These are much easier to make, and use. But they don’t seem to be what a consumer would want.

    I’d rather have a 1.4 sensing site size for the tele sensor instead of the super wide camera so that that camera would take pics as good as the wide camera does. Then I’d like to have Apple’s computational methods give us a night mode as Huawei and Google does. Both would be more useful than a super wide.

    Samsung is first to market with a foldable phone. It’s a work in progress so expect some bumps in the road. Samsung gets a pass on this. You know it’s true. But if this were Apple it would be “DON’T THEY TEST THIS STUFF BEFORE THEY RELEASE IT?"
    This is something I really don’t understand. I could expect that they don’t last as long as they say. 200,000 folds is a lot of folds after all. But maybe they would start breaking after 100,000, even 50,000. But this amazes me. Unless this first batch is faulty, it makes no sense.

  • Editorial: The big loser in the Apple - Qualcomm settlement isn't Intel, it's Android

    As soon as I read the headline, I knew it was an article by DEG.
