Cheong Keng Seng Cleary you have never used Face ID then, by the way nearly every android flagship has the finger print sensor on the back so your argument is already invalid. Face ID works really well on the table, just tilt your head over and it works straight away. Clearly you have never used it, I’ve found it to be just as reliable as a fingerprint in nearly every situation

Benchmarks aren’t fake. And why would a Samsung fanboy say that? !”Look at real life usage speed tests” LOL the iPhone x is just faster.
And you know, it feels premium, not like those s9 that lag even in the setup.

These are the biggest first world problems it astounds me. There are people dying from war and disease and we are all here complaining about how there is a little chin on the bottom of a phone i am actually laughing.

Reply

War and poverty exist and it‘s sad. It‘s also sad that many don‘t care and just live their lives without thinking about those problems and without appreciating what they have and how amazing their lives actually are. BUT all that doesn‘t mean that the whole world has to stand still. That would be really bad actually. Industries still have to move forward, technology has to improve and people have to keep working hard and innovate, we always have to move forward. Doing nothing will not help people affected by war and poverty. And as dumb as it sounds, not getting rid of a phone‘s chin will not help any human being affected by war. We definitely need to take action, help those people and make our world a better place. But not every single industry has to stop moving forward to make that happen, that‘s not how it works. Otherwise the whole world would get super sad and depressive which isn‘t what we want either. It would result in a worse situation than we have now. So while taking action and helping the world, we still need to keep being happy, enjoy our lives and move forward, keep working. And technology and design is a HUUUGE part of our lives, so such topics like phone bezels are being discussed and companies job is to move forward, work on technologies and improve our user experience.

I can’t wait for this had to die out. Phones nowadays have no grip points, and much like the early Samsung edge phones they are becoming harder to hold with no actual advantage besides aestetic. Someone accomplish this, then move on.

peter dozal - posted on June 20, 2018 11:34 pm

it nowhere near takes away “1/2 the functionality away from the phone” my dude. the only thing it truly takes away is front-facing speakers everything else can still exist on the phone they just need to be put onto other places, it’s just that manufacturers are choosing to not include those said items​ that are going away. big screens don’t prevent headphone jacks, manufactures just don’t care enough to include them.

Jake Townend you can prevent that with software that detects which input to actually use and not the ones at the sides where you hold it

I’ll pay anything and sacrifice all audio playback and recording just for those extra two millimeters of chin to be taken off! I hope the phone has great palm-rejection too, because without a chin, it’ll be increasingly difficult to hold onto! YAY! Also, make sure the back is glass so it’s nice and costly, slippery, and fragile. I wouldn’t want some cheap, light, durable material ruining the “premium feel” of the phone.
