swmca, 27 Sep 2017Firstly.. you definitely CAN see the difference between full hd and quad hd .. and quad hd De... morei cant see the difference. most ppl cant, unless for VR content or the screen is big enough. it is a waste of power and money. lots of 1080p screen out there i dont see anyone complaining they can see the individual pixel (oneplus5, mi6,iphone 7plus, xperia XZ etc. etc.), yet some oem with 5.3" put QHD on their screen. QHD is just marketing for most part.
just dont say S8 and S8+ screen is big, just about 5.2" and about 5.5" when viewing 16:9 media content.
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2017If you don't believe your eyes it is other story. Those tests last for a few minutes. Try to rerun the same app after a day or two.
Like I said iphones rarely reload and that's a fact, androids in general but even sony in particular does reload apps. I have owned two Sony phones thus far, I know what I'm talking about. They're fast for android phones, but they also reload ... I guess it comes with the territory.
So the iPhone 8 sales ARE weak... If people aren't buying them, that means the sales are down.
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2017Not an Apple hater. But have you watched speed test video between iPhone 8 and Sony XZ Premium... moreIt doesn't Sony phones start reloading apps from one point forwards . Apple never does ... In those tests you can show anything you want, espec if you don't put strict standards to your testing...
Not an Apple hater. But have you watched speed test video between iPhone 8 and Sony XZ Premium? Sony kills iPhone in speed. Not hater...
You spin me right round, baby
Right round like a record, baby
Right round round round
ZephyrDan, 27 Sep 2017How are they specs from 3 years ago? 1st gen slow wireless charging
Those who camping for iphones, most retarted people can be, not working, getting benefits? Waste of society, makes apple rich, so they can raise prices again next year
Duel, 27 Sep 2017"They are ripping people off.. it's about time people faced it." Ripping people by offering... moreHow do you know? Have you used it yet? Just based on specs are you? I thought Apple didn't care and didn't talk much about the specs because what matters is the experience. But as you don't have the device yet (neither gonna have it until the end of the year probably), you don't have any experience with it, you don't know so better to stay quiet.
aqours, 27 Sep 2017funny. ppl are facing with iphone x and ppl like it. period. your caps lock cannot change ppl'... moreFirstly.. you definitely CAN see the difference between full hd and quad hd .. and quad hd Definitely is the sweet spot in mobiles showing 4k content. (Watching 4k recorded video on 1080p?.. no thanks!)..
Secondly.. many apple loyalists really do not like this weird '2 horns' screen that tries to fool people into thinking its truly without bezel.. it's ugly. If you also look at the screen- device ratio.. the S8 duo are actually less bezel! Almost 84%
ZephyrDan, 27 Sep 2017How are they specs from 3 years ago? ...people had CPUs that do 10k on Geekbech ... oh wait they didn't. In fact most don't on neither their PC nor laptop to this day ... I have never seen such a jump on raw CPU performance YoY before ... yet people are still complaining...
swmca, 27 Sep 2017Lol.. keep telling yourself its the best quality screen. The BEST quality screen is the QUAD H... morefunny. ppl are facing with iphone x and ppl like it. period. your caps lock cannot change ppl's heart. apple arent ripping ppl off if ppl buy the thing they like.
from your perspective, samsung also ripped ppl off by selling S8 with QHD screen (more expensive than 1080p), as most ppl cant even tell the difference between 1080p and QHD screen, unless for VR, which only few ppl using it.
i dont understand what do you mean by component inside S8 is cutting edge? u can say all flagships has cutting edge internal. do u mean A11 Bionic is a weak component?
after all, this is business. if u provide something to someone, even if it is ridiculous but they like it, u'll get rich.
Man, they waited years for fast charge and oled, give them theyr loved ones apple. Dont mind if parts are missing, they paid so much for marketing that they will find a way to love it anyway...release the X please, they cant show off bencharmks or cameras anymore they need style for the next 365 days
smarterthanphone, 27 Sep 2017Don't jump to iOS. it's not worth it ;)
It's all about software optimization: 6 gig or 4 g... moreThe optimizations play a minimal role. It's more about how the OSes are set-up. I actually prefer Android's way BTW. IOS's is more managanable in an environment of low resources. So basically only the front end app is allowed to take most resources. That's good because it allows it to appear swift even back when iphones had dinky processors (it's no longer needed for that anymore) *and* it basically disallows background processes to get wild. THAT is why IOS is still relevant. It basically means scarce battery bugs, far lower ram needs...
It's why you get twice the amound of apps in memory despite using the same ram amount as android (3GB in IOS = 6GB on android), and more battery two (2700 MaH on IOS ~ 4000 MaH on Android) .... That's all fine and dandy, but it makes customization much harder ... which is why I'm not pulling the trigger still on Iphone X ... else it's 90% of what I expected any flagship (ever) to be (all screen, powerful as a destkop, ~2-day battery).
I guess I'll wait for a jailbreak before pulling the trigger. If it never comes , or if it comes yet the customizations are meh I won't buy it. But if the customizations allowed by Cydia are as powerful as they used to ... then yay! Whether I'll give $1000 or $500 makes little difference too as I don't change my phones very frequently...
This phone is a beast, saddled by a semi-bad OS. Hopefully Cydia tweaks would fix the OS...
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2017Oh BTW what did "Apple want"? "Make me the best possible display on the market, please". LOL...This is what Apple wanted
"The first OLED screen that rises to the standards of iPhone, with accurate, stunning colors, true blacks, high brightness, and a 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio."
