Oh good. And where people will watch their videos? Oh right, on the 750p display of their iPhone. Perfectly capable of displaying all the details from a 2160p video. But at 60fps, it's now even better with almost 2x the size!
Ugh. Why people make such a fuss about 4K? There are still people buying 720p displays and TV channels in 720p around the world. And it's not like 4K content is widespread. I do own a 4K TV but that's because it was on sale. The only ways for me to enjoy 4K content are videos from mobile devices and buying (or having the credentials of someone that gave to me) a NetFlix premium subscription. My local TV providers are really asking for ridiculous premiums for the poor library of 4K content they offer.
the Only Oracle, 04 Aug 2017Interesting. Samsung had 4k on their Smartphones 4-5 years BEFORE Apple. But when Apple Finall... moreNice objective comment... btw the first Samsung with 4k capability was the Note 3 (09/2013) and the first iPhone was the 6S (09/2015) => 2 years
the new design looks so bad.it's really ridiculous. I hate its design
I wish iOS 11 could have the basic functionality of deleting multiple contacts. I have to install third party app to get this basic thing done. After coming from a note5 to iPhone 7 plus I find certain basic features missing in iPhone. Apple's health app is a joke when compared to S Health. Apple should focus on these first. Apparently to do anything in an iPhone you need a third party app.
Actually I hope Samsung brings Atleast 8-bit 4-2-2 to a smartphone, even if it's only for 10mins at a time. That could make it a serious filmmaking camera.
And, Samsung needs to work on creating an Ecosystem of Apps and Accessories around Samsung, that is way more exclusive than all other Android Phones around or even iPhone.
Interesting. Samsung had 4k on their Smartphones 4-5 years BEFORE Apple. But when Apple Finally got 4k, the Press made it sound like they discovered Life On Mars.
The Hype around Apple is Irritating TBO. I am happy about the 4k60p. Though I wish a smartphone would do full res (12MP?) burst RAW at 30p or something. That could help push it's Dynamic Range Significantly. Also, it would be great for sports and wildlife photography (with an attached zoom lens).
Anyways, I have my hope High from the Note 8 camera. I am looking forward to the Dynamic Range and Low Light on that one. I hope they have made it even better than the Camera on the S8.
4K in 60fps. Of course. Why not. Because everyone got a 4k tv at home. Everyone need it. It is essential feature. Everyone always take a 4k video everyday to post on facebook, instagram, youtube and stuff. Futureproof. Nobody watch HD or FHD anymore. Iphone 8 will come with 1 terabytes of internal storage anyway. It is simply perfect. Perfecto! Awesome. Good job Apple. Kudos.
my MT 6752 octocore...purchase 2 years ago
Already can play H.264 Mpeg4 AVC 2160p 4k video..
my $50 PC card - gtx750 will fully encoded the H.265 video with flawless
so whats big deal with this???
How many will care about H.265 Hevc 4K playing in their phone display crappy resolution.
H.265 is been around on android phones for years..
Will i8 also record stereo audio during videos too or still mono?
No matter what they make, it'll sell anyway because "apple ecosystem".
but it nice to see that they actually creating something impressive, Not that I and most people have 4K TV that is.
