Sorry to break it you you, but fingerprint sensors uses wires beneath your phone, as well as Face ID, so nothing's truly wireless yet when it comes to biometrics
From when did the fp sensor need an external wire
And can the wireless charging outpace my Oneplus 5's Dash?
Plus you're going to have to lump that crap around with you?
AnonD-702396, 24 Sep 2017Then prepare to get a thick phone. There's not enough space for that.Not necessarily, even though I am fine with a 10-14 mm thick phone.
The battery is one of the biggest components of a smartphone and often plays a big role in the thickness of a modern smartphone. Yet here are three phones with 5000+ mAh batteries and yet their thickness measures around 8mm. And they are moderately feature-packed too...
What??? Using FaceID is considered wireless? Wireless biometric authentication? Isnt there always no wire involved in fingerprint sensor? What the point of this article? It looks unfinished. Clockwise about wireless. But its very very short article explaning not much history of wireless. What is this?? The content is not even helpful or informative. Uselessly talking about voice assistants. Most topic involving Apple going wireless just because of the new iphone. Seriously? What is this? The only wireless topic you cover is headphone, bluetooth, NFC, infrared & miracast. Where the history? Where the example of past devices using them? Where the sample pictures of the devices? Where the elaboration? And that wireless biometric thing i dont get it at all what you trying to say there.
AnonD-678118, 24 Sep 2017I don't understand how is it wireless charging and it needs to be in contact with the adapter?... moreYou know, the only person I know who actually owns a phone with qi charging and hates it is my niece. That's because she's young and has to look at and hold her phone at all times.
Personally I like it. My phone usually never drops below 80% because with a couple of well placed stations, charging is always convenient.
The perfect phone should have all options (both wired and wireless).
Hence it should also support Bluetooth 5.0 aptX streaming with USB-type C and 3.5 mm headphone jack wired support too.
It should have support for fast wired and wireless charging.
It should have wired TV Out (with HDMI) as well as support for Miracast as Screen Mirroring/Cast.
Similarly it should have FM Radio and Infrared Blaster, while Internet radio and Alexa support are simply a download away.
(And going slightly off topic) it should have a large removable 5000 mAh battery and still be waterproof (Galaxy S5 achieved it in early 2014).
It should have 8 GB RAM and 512GB internal storage while still offering support for Dual Sim and dedicated SD card slot.
I don't understand how is it wireless charging and it needs to be in contact with the adapter?? and how is it innovation if you can't hold your smartphone and use it while charging same how you do it with cable??
Sony Fanboy Bitches, 24 Sep 2017First notable mention:
Headphone jack (trend that the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus have started)
Se... morethe 3.5mm jack was already there before Apple's iphone existence... i think it was in Nokia who has it in their N series or the other old Gen!
TheGoldMellifluousXZ, 24 Sep 2017Well , don't be surprised if Sony will be the last company to have 3.5 mm jack in the future ,... moresony is always the top best in sound and imagine industry, the wired, and wireless. and yet, they didn't drop about the 3.5mm because they know how much important it is. well, Apple is fake.. because they beautify their products from the outside and they invest in marketing and sales more than in innovation... and they keep trolling people... Apple has the build quality.. but the innovation NO!.... they only innovate in the marketing words to gain more sales, and to troll their fans, and convince them...
Apple 2017 innovation = Android based smartphones 2013 innovation
the ditching of the 3.5mm jack has nothing to do with innovation (as Apple claimed lol) bluetooth / NFC connectivity is already there since many years ago... Apple didn't find a room for this haptic feedback Chip, so they sacrificed the 3.5mm, and then fooled their iS H E E P S by their innovation claim... and some other sheeps manufacturers just followed Apple... it's good to have a wireless connectivity, thou it wouldn't be as reliable as the wired one in term of speed, frequency, and clarity, no matter the innovation's level at.
Well , don't be surprised if Sony will be the last company to have 3.5 mm jack in the future , if wireless is going further than before .
I'm also sure someone will come with wireless(AR) phone, which you will see just as virtual device with all processing and functions being done over internet. (like HP elitex3 has done with windows,...but better)
Truly wireless charging, like free charge of devices on street and from one device to another. Meaning battery free phones, no time limit for wearables usage. ...stream data 24/7, having location and other sensors turned on. This would greatly help AR glasses.
Wireless charging is useless until it can charge phone from a distance about 30inches should be good but 15 inches is ok
I think TouchID was already wireless, as it didn't require a wire..
And I don't care that much about the next thing going wireless, maybe charging over distance. But it is more important that those wireless things already available get cheaper, are implemented in more products, work more reliable and finally reach the masses instead of being a niche for geeks
"Apple took this to the extreme with the AirPods, they don’t even have a wire connecting the two ear plugs!" Apple this, Apple that, but as a matter of fact Samsung had these "extreme" earphones before Apple, and Onkyo was first ever if I'm correct. So as usual, Apple is chasing innovation made by others, not so innovative as gsmarena makes it to be.
