Anonymous, 12 May 2017I guess split screen is from LG. LG G2 has it since 2013I don't know who had it first , but I'm thinking my 2012 galaxy note 2 had split screen function.
AnonymouseX, 12 May 2017That was before. How about watching Zack of JRE's durability test of the U Ultra and S8/S8+? O... moreJesus Christ you just spent 5 minutes typing useless stuff like who made what first.
While we are at it .. HTC was the first Android phone, the first 4G-capable phone ...see ? Stuff like this is completely irrelevant.
I asked you if that car is green or blue, you replied its yellow.
On the long term , Sony will never be more stable than a HTC flagship phone, never, maybe it comes close, but that's all.
You are comparing the U Ultra with the S8 . I will remind you that this is about HTC 11, HTC's main flagship.
Samsung software may have improved, it will never come close to what HTC or Sony are offering.
Split screen was not first on Samsung ( talking about better research , right ? )
And if the fact that Samsung improved its software and it supposedly invented split screen are the only things you have to say about them... well , can you please answer my initial questions ?
Smarty pants, 360 real-life recording is just recording a video and turning around. Voila.
Most probably 360 degree audio recording. I doubt it the video. Bullshit reintroducing panorama shot with 360 gimmicks? I dont think so.
Anonymous, 12 May 2017Xperias allow you to use both came simultaniouslyBoth cams
Possible with wide enough angle lenses on front and back. Basically what gear 360 does but in a lower scale.
I reckon HTC 11 use the hole entire camera sensor to take a photos or videos so it may be "360" but not "360" or I'm completely wronge about this
Claudiu.Lucian, 12 May 2017All the rumours clearly say one 12MP camera in the back and one 16MP in the front, so no.thats the resolution for photos
it could just record the same 1080p footage from both sides somehow
1.-2 cameras recording something like samsung gear 360, 2.-3cameras recording 360° panorama video, 3.-1 camera recording video with orientation as for VR gear with the rest being black. Or something more crazy as its hard to imagine whats not real-life recording and what is 360 - pano, sphere or maybe 360 of the object - in other words 3D or cropped video from lens that follow object around you using back and front camera. Looking forward to real life recording, feels like every phone will have not so real one anymore, better be prepared.
kiboi, 12 May 2017Even if it will do "540 real life recording", nobody cares HTC. Even makes phones that can rea... moreNobody cares about HTC? HTC is gaining market share as per latest report of it's increased sales.
I think Sony or LG will die faster than HTC given their ridiculous bezels design with lousy small battery capacity.
Blunder, 12 May 2017Does Samsung cover excellent build / audio output quality ? What about a perfect smooth OS ? ... moreThat was before. How about watching Zack of JRE's durability test of the U Ultra and S8/S8+? Only way I'd praise HTC is for no false advertising and truly using Sapphire.
They (Samsung) don't cover the best audio quality, but what about the U Ultra?
They dropped their only main selling point. Give me a U Ultra with a headphone jack that matches the LG V20 / Axon 7 / XZ Premium's DAC quality.
Samsung's software has improved so much for years. Not perfect, but soon to destroy HTC's software. Then again, what Android feature that came from HTC? Split screen was from Samsung, and even Android O would have Sony's audio features instead of LG or ZTE or HTC's.
I'd give it to you for better software longevity, but let me introduce you to someone named "Sony" and ask which one has the most stable software on Android platform. Also ask who gave Google; 30 feature enhancements and 250 bug fixes for Android. Doing better research can help improve your idea instead of being clueless here and trying hard to make an argument.
GrumpyHumpy, 12 May 2017"That does a lot more"
The thing is, are you going to use those "more" things at all?
And ... moreDoes Samsung cover excellent build / audio output quality ? What about a perfect smooth OS ? Does it run at optimum performance after a couple of years ?
No, it does not.
mir, 12 May 2017I'll take an ugly phone that does a lot more than a pretty phone anyday.I'll take the good looking HTC U 11 with beastly specs rather than an ugly phone all day.
Snapdragon 835, water-resistant phone IP57, f1.7 12mp ultrapixel camera w/ OIS,
16mp selfie with ultrapixel mode, 128gb/6gb combo, 3D audio recording, HTC boomsound, htc U Sonic, hi-res audio certified.
Go get your ugly phone.
