ljames, 20 Jun 2016why is making smaller bezels important actually?It makes the overall phone size smaller.
So ok, let's see how today smartphones work with VR(I have few good quality goggles, but for most of time I use homido)
Let's use my current xperia z3 that have one of best batteries and 1080 screen. VR content look pretty good, longest usage I could made was about 6hours
Now galaxy s7 that is more power full and have QHD screen... With the same apps that look not that different from z3 I manage to squeeze about 5 hours(it was not my device so I could not test it more).
Now most important part, screen resolution is actually not a big problem. Most of problem are made because of VR apps and games that look like games made in 1998 for PSX they lack of optimization and most of games use unity engine that is one of most powerhungry engines out there, simple graphic on this engine need powerfull device to keep good frame rate.
Because to have good VR experience you need really high fps, between 60-80 without keeping that amount you would get dizzy and you not gonna get good experience from VR.
For most of timer I just watch videos on VR cinema and even good apps like VR Theater can kill battery really fast and having some slowdowns.
UHD display & dual camera!!! WTF Samsung!!! Run after something useful!!! Such as, try to reduce bezel, try to fit a larger battery, try to improve the speaker or implement stereo front speakers, try to improve TW & not but not the least, try to update software little bit faster!!!
World first dual camera huawei honor 6 plus and till now the camera is one of the best in midrange just like zte Nubia z9.
UHD WTH. people watch 32 or higher inch tvs having just 1080p or even 720p resolution and smartphone are gonna use UHD on a 5-6 inch devices.i guess people are useless just doing useless things.but if the power consumption can be kept as low as that of 1080p screens thn only this will gain success otherwise biggest flop of 21st century this phone will be.what sony did of using UHD only when needed in videos and photos is brilliant helping conserving battery when not needed.hope this can do the same.who needs UHD if you cant even tell the difference and just waste battery and performance on it
ljames, 20 Jun 2016it'd be great if samsung could do the same thing sony did with the xperia z5 premium, but inst... moreThere will be a perfect ratio of 4:1 ( uhd:fhd ) with fhd as native resolution unlike 1440p. That's why Sony didn't perform that stunt with their z5 premium.
it'd be great if samsung could do the same thing sony did with the xperia z5 premium, but instead of having native 1080p res, they could make do with a QHD one. UHD on vr would be very impressive.
