Bezels getting smaller for many phones but not Motorola - still stuck in 2010 from a design point of view.
yeah bezels get smaller and smaller, but where is samsung? s8 has an outstanding bezel to body ratio. You talk about iphone?
Well it was good but nowhere near as good as w995 back then in multimedia. We had cyber-shot phone cameras and powerful stereo speakers from sony, iphone couldn't even compete, heh. Nokia with their n series.. just stop trying to pass iphone as a game changer. It kinda introduced smartphones but it wasn't the 1st smartphone, neither the 1st touchscreen phone. Even sony ericsson had a touchscreen phone in 2006, the w960. it was so beautiful i can't even.
Nowadays android is head to head with ios in performance, but still iphones are still not as multimedia friendly as androids. So here's the fact.
Er,so how long had the HTC hd2 been available for in Europe etc before the iPhone was released ?
Or how about the Sony/Ericsson p800/900/910i series ?
Stop trying to re-write history..
IPhone was a smartphone was it ?
then how come you couldn't do the simplest of jobs, cut and paste on it ?
Latest IPhone is still just an expensive locked in feature phone,doesn't do anything more than an se p910i could/can,just a better camera and faster guts,but what miraculous aspect has it got ?
Can it make coffee,can it wipe my arse, can it do anything that a billion+ android devices cannot ?
Anonymous, 04 Jun 2017but android still isn't as good as should be in terms of performance anything less than 3gb ra... moreDo u know why every newer Windows version (PC OS) needs better & better minimum requirements? If Yes, why ask the same shit?
If u don't know, I advised u not to open ur trap too often before researching about the issue first.
This only makes people know how illiterate u r regarding the issue.
The REASON for newer & newer Android version need more & more RAM is more or less the same as Windows for PC: more & more features are added which can only mean more & more RAM is vital.
e.g for Android 4.0 - 4.4 (ICS - KitKat), 2GB RAM is more than enough to sustain Android OS, as the features in those versions is not as much as the newer one (MM - Nougat).
My friend have Asus Padfone S with KitKat out of the box, upgradeable to Marshmallow.
He once tried upgrading the OS to MM, only for disappointed & rolled back to KitKat, because of the 2GB RAM limitation (at 2014, KitKat era, 2GB RAM is enough, like I said before).
So, that's the MAIN reason why certain company like Xiaomi didn't release OS upgrade, only patch & security update for the existed OS, because OS upgrade is not always the best solution for a device with RAM & SoC limitation.
but android still isn't as good as should be in terms of performance anything less than 3gb ram will have slow downs and lag..
who me, 04 Jun 2017LG got the stb ratio right in 2013 with the G2, 75.9% and still very comfortable to hold and use.Agreed, and they did it again with the G Pro 2, although it had a much larger display
78% StB in 2013 Sharp AQUOS Xx 302sh
84.4% StB in 2014 Sharp AQUOS Crystal X 402sh(fixed wrong 83.5 from another post)
In 2013(same year with Lg g2) Sharp released two phones for Japanese carrier Softbank with the model number 302sh and 303sh with 78% StB ratio and in 2014, Sharp also released another variant of AQUOS Crystal called AQUOS Crystal X/Y 402sh with 5.5inch display/flagship spec and this phone was the first phone in the world to a sport more than 80% StB with its own 83.5% StB ratio.
Also Mi MIX using Display produced by Sharp.
LG got the stb ratio right in 2013 with the G2, 75.9% and still very comfortable to hold and use.
