Someone let the editor know its supposed to read "beneath" then screen, since below the screen is where phones like the iPhone 8 have their readers.
The best place of fingerprint is:
And what good are those when the phone itself is fragile AF?
Latest discovery by Japanese Researchers, the self-healing glass, should be improved and implemented ASAP.
What I really want to see is a stop to this price going up madness and more products that are made to last , not planned obsolete .
Phones have not become 1.5-2 times more capable than they were 2-3 years ago . There is no legit reason for prices to go so high other than manufacturers get greedier and greedier . Also there is no good reason for OEMs to stop support for perfectly capable phones just because they want to sell new ones .
At some point the customers got to say : "Enough is Enough !" and stop buying these overpriced planed obsolete piece of tech that OEMs try to stick down our throats every year and encourage cheaper alternatives like xiaomi/oneplus/honor etc . If the big guys (samsung,apple) would see a major decrease in their sales they would have to change something but they go all out anti customer because people still buy their products .
If a pc/laptop can get great components at reasonable prices and easily last for 5 or more years then so should a phone .
Biometrics and even pins nd passwords are useless. I don't take my phone out of my pocket unless I need to and I don't leavr it lying around on tables. I'm also not a CIA agent so I've got no secrets to keep.
I find it both hilarious and pathetic when I see 20 or 30 year old real life Joes using biometrics.
"It is worth pointing out that the Synaptics-supplied tech..."
I'm glad they pointed it out. Many people keep saying other manufacturer will 'copy' Vivo. It is not copying. This is supply by Synaptics. Just like all the rest of the normal fingerprint sensors we have in most smartphone today.
Front button like mate 10
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2018So what "you all" want in 2018 is VIVO right?. Don't think so!
Sammy and Sony Fanboys was vot... moreBefore S7 the IP68 was considered overrated.
Before i7, stereo was consider overrated
Before i7+, dual cam from.htc was gimmick
Before i8, AR was useless
Before i7+, background defocus was useless
That what we see ppl type as comments on many tech sites
I like to see the return of the 3.5 mm headphone jack, and FM Radio!
So what "you all" want in 2018 is VIVO right?. Don't think so!
Sammy and Sony Fanboys was voting this option thinking it will be featured in their flagship overpriced devices. But now that it was first done on vivo, they are going to say something like ; "it is overrated and less practical than normal FPS" or "it doesn't matter who did it first but who will do it best"
Its funny though that Real-world problems like lack of 3.5mm jack, sealed batteries/batteries lasting less than 2 years, small batteries, 16:9 display, lack of long-term update etc were lacking in the pool. So we've come to accept obselence for heavily priced devices
But what about fingerprint reader on the side? Like my Z5C. I really like the setup because I have the phone firmly in grip (with finger over power+fingerprint button) when getting out of the pocket. One-handed usage is excellent.
