this gives hope s10 is notchless or at least the camera position is not atrocious as renders
BiyoBiyo JunJun, 11 Dec 2018yes , we must blame apple for this ... because apple start it .... greedy appleMotorola started it. Or at least is one of the companies to do it before Apple.
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2018First ever notch is by Motorola f3 in 2006. First smart phone with notch by LG V10 in 2015, Th... moreV10 didn't have a notch, it had a very short screen beside the front cam, and the main screen below - 2 independent panels.
Shui8, 10 Dec 2018Actually 6.4" 19.5:9 ratio screen size almost the same as 5.6" older 16:9 ratio screen size. I... moreThat may well be the case, but nobody cared that they weren't able to reach the top of the BEZEL.
Well Samsung were number 1 Samsung is still number 1 in sales but Samsung wont be too long number one in sales because they making worse and worse looking phones with nothing special apart from price beyound the roof.
Oh they forgot to mention NO headphone Jack. The same company that mocked apple the last few years. Only to copy it soon after. Wow!

I thing I just don't get...why the hell all the phones have/had notch in the middle, but once the punch hole camera design is out the camera moves in to the corner? Why they didn't put the camera in the corner before (with a corner "notch") much better location!
V30 better than A8s
1. surely better price
2. better chipset sd 835 vs midrange
3. 100% way better camera both photo & video
4. better battery for sure
5. better 2k display
6. QUAD DAC - that is to listen to
8. type C 3.1 vs 2.0
Why bother? Just for the Brand name?
Anonymous, 11 Dec 2018The iPhone also has thicker side bezels and a big notch up top. Or do you only care about how ... moreI personally prefer the side bezels to be somehow thicker, and the XR is just the perfect combo for it
The chin being the same size as the surrounding bezels make it look more symmetrical and adds some character to the aesthetic
imparanoic, 11 Dec 2018that's not true, if the phone is from a chinese company, then the phone is cheap, but if the p... moreTo some extent, it's true, however, China always generally gets the lowest prices of smartphones compared to many other countries
A phone will be expensive there if it's not manufactured in China, or if it's a really expensive device, but since most of our devices are now manufactured in their country, they somehow would get a discount since the facilities and manufacturing plants in China were used to build the product
As for moving to other countries, I believe that it's mostly just in rare cases where a product is cheaper in other regions
What difference does it make with all screen,only the looks thats all,should go for the foldable ones,that makes some sense and usability too, god everyones crazy for fullscreen
Now this phone runs on Oreo or Pie? because here you say it's running on Android 8.1 but in specifications page you say it's Android 9.0 !!! I'm confused
