I never knew that the U.S. Military drop test was 1.2 metres, (nearly 4 feet), what are they using child soldiers now?, lol.
I can already see that there is a difference of opinion here, but my preference is primarily unbreakable @ 1.83m (6'), if also scratch resistant then great, if it isn't then just supply the phone with a really good prefitted HD screen protector, so it's ready to go for everyone straight out of the box.
Also the back should also be drop proof to 6', although maybe it still has to be glass (because alternative materials that allow wireless charging are limited, but I'm sure there are alternatives if needed).
The moto droid turbo 2 implementation was mostly a flat panel with 2.5 edge, Samsung exaggerates the curve for mostly aesthetics and improving ergonomics as it helps narrow the phone.
geewaiho, 26 Jul 2018It's a flexible unbreakable oled,, Motorolas is flat. Similair ideas executed differently. Mor... moreMotorola also uses flexible P-oled, from the video I saw on YouTube when the first Droid Turbo 2 first came out !
pffffttt.. how do you even know that it's unbreakable if you didn't even show it's working? I bet there will be dead pixels after a real hammer test.
I'd like to see what happens when an actual phone with the glass is dropped.
Hiks, 27 Jul 2018Why Samsung? The most breakable thing is not the panel itself but the glass which lied on top ... moreYes that's correct , what they gonna do with the front glass protection which protect panel from scratches n all. or they gonna make the flexible display also scratch resistance.
Andy, 26 Jul 2018I 100% guarantee it is not "unbreakable". Another word for unbreakable is indestructible, and ... more"Unbreakable" literally means cannot be broken. Totally different from cannot be destroyed.
Why Samsung? The most breakable thing is not the panel itself but the glass which lied on top of the panel.
LOL, hitting it DEAD CENTER isn't a test. The kinetic energy from the hammer, is spread out equally from the center. A REAL test, would be to drop it on the corner, and see how the energy from a corner hit, would spread out. THAT would be a better test.
I 100% guarantee it is not "unbreakable". Another word for unbreakable is indestructible, and it's definitely not
stivi737, 26 Jul 2018I think it will be left for next gen ones. However not breaking IMO is more important than scr... moreExactly! I can live with scratches but I certainly cannot live with broken glass.
s, 26 Jul 2018I would prefer no burn-in OLED....Then it goes from oled to micro led.. which is really LED unfortunately them marketing people renamed it just to sell it..
So led.. is classed as a backlit led with a LCD panel...
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2018We don't NEED unbreakable screens Samsung! We need and want unscratchable screens!The problem is with that, if you chose an unscratchable material, take HTCs Sapphire U11 Ultra, it's more brittle, thus breaks easier upon dropping. The glass we use nowerdays in in the middle of unbreakable but scratchable plastic and unscratchable and prone-to-breaking sapphire
