AnonD-39937, 20 Apr 2017anything except Google Assistant is a waste of money, time and storage space...I would consider google assistant as a waste too. Unless they made an offline AI. Every digital assistant I know wont work unless connected to the internet. Offline AI would be a game changer. If our smartphone AI have at least half of robot Pepper intelligence that would be more fun to talk with. Or even something with personalities like LG AKA.

I rather have it tested like the one in samsung video battery test. They placed the phone in a heating chamber of 50 degree celsius. That would be a proper test simulating overheating of the phone instead of burning it with direct flame.

Even GSMArena calls the flame test meaningless. Here's the link:

That was the purpose of the burn test, as well as the scratch and bend test.
Someone Else, 19 Apr 2017The flame test was used for testing dead pixels and the overall life span of the display. And ... moreYeah, but my question is what's the purpose of the flame test in a practical view-point. So far, we have found out that after 10 seconds of direct flame, LCD's sometimes discolour permanently but mostly switch off before recovering fine. As for AMOLED's, they usually get a permanent white discoloration after 10 seconds of open flame. And true, the S8 seems to be a champ in this regards, resisting change upto 30 seconds.
But how is the flame test useful in a practical stand-point? I mean do you know any case where the screen pixels got damaged and turned off due to long-term use or under intense, heavy loads? No amount of heavy usage can make the screen become as hot as 10 seconds of direct flame. It seems like a poor test to simulate any kind of practical scenario....
AnonD-25255, 20 Apr 2017Flame test is important to know how screen will survive in heavy and hot use before it show de... moreI really don't think any amount of heavy usage can lead to the screen being as hot as exposed to 10 seconds of direct flame. No matter how heavy you use you can always touch it with your finger, but can you keep your fingers in direct flame for 10 seconds?
I mean has anyone experienced their pixels being turned off (i.e. going dead) during heavy usage?

AnonD-39937, 19 Apr 2017As Jerry says, Bixby is the best friend no one asked for. :)))))I dont know but AI is the MVP of this year in smartphone innovation. Even Sharp already introduced their own AI named EMOP for their Aquos R phone. I wont be surprised if all the major player doing this.
Romie Lee, 20 Apr 2017his name is not jerry but his youtube channel named "jerryriggedeverything"? So weird! btw ... moreIts not his name. Non native english speaker may not know but jerry-rigged is actually a verb. Its a real word in the dictionary. It is actually a merged of two words which is jury-rigged & jerry-built.
Anonanoymoususes, 20 Apr 2017just only 1 phone without jack , people made fun of it like apple get rid the jack since 2007 ... moreJust like S8 fingerprint next to camera. While LG always had their volume rocker next to the camera for many years and nobody complaining about wiping the lens.
If you put your screen under the extreme sunlight heat, flame test will be very much appreciated as the pixels of your screen can be affected. My friend left his S5 inside his car for about an hour with the sunlight shining directly on the screen of the phone. He picked it up afterwards and noticed a white spot on the screen where the sunlight is shining at

funny thing is , nobody care about other android phone that already rid the jack before apple did ,
i guess lucky me that i dont need secure pass.. just a normal swipe on display its ok to unlock the phone.. nothing secret on my phone and more then that its my phone so no one use it without my permision .. soo fingerprint location is fine.. actualy in that location the phone looks better then if was under the camera..
