Devil , 20 Sep 2019Screen to body ratio over 100%? Logically it's impossible. Go home Xiaomi, you are drunk. Someone is drunk, but not xiaomi...
Nope, straight up wrong, the screen-to-body ratio is ~87%. Someone doesn't understand how %'s work... or reality.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2019How can something be more than 100%? 100% of front + 100% of back + sides
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2019How can something be more than 100%? It's a ratio, so it can be more than 1/1 or 100%
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2019How can something be more than 100%? The part of screen is not visible from front (sorry for my English)
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2019by this logic, samsung exploding phone was a huge marketing success lolThat was different. Accident vs intention.
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2019Something many companies seem to get wrong: a higher "scree-to-body ratio" does not make a pho... moreIf used correctly it can mean a lot. Say a 5 inch phone that is as small as the iPhone 4, yet usable in this day and age (due to not having a tiny screen).
Sadly none would do it, or maybe some weird company does it (Japan only Sharp?) all the while "forgetting" to fix "all screen" problems (I.e. palm rejectio, ability to protect it, etc).
If it has a top and bottom bezel, it's not 100%, let alone above 100. If it were, then we could just stick a screen on the back of the phone and count that as adding to the screen to body ratio.
I honestly don't give a crap about the display technology this phone will use, I'm only waiting for this because of its camera sensor.
Bring it on!
For all the curved screen haters lately, you can continue using your fat bezel phones. I'm for innovation and moving forward.
This phone might just be one-sided "water-fall", if so then the top and bottom should be symmetrical just so to accommodate right and left-handed users. I hope this would be more stable than the much more "apha-state" fold devices.
The fact that you guys are debating the over 100% number already shows how successful the marketing is.
Anonymous, 21 Sep 2019Doesn't matter if they make the phone too large to hold in one hand. They can make the screen ... moredon't think mix was ever a series for practical, more for innovation. get a mi 9 pro if u want practical or smt of the sort.
This reminds me the nighmared I had with my old S7 edge, but even worse.
Doesn't matter if they make the phone too large to hold in one hand. They can make the screen to body ratio 200%, but if they keep making the device bigger (instead of smaller), there's just no point.
And you'd have to recount all other phones ratio data in specs, since their frame isn't included LOL. (they'd be lower) It can't be judged/measured two ways when marketing needs it. Right, a nonsense. I wonder what'll be in specs here.
Thinking more of all this, even if this curved part of screen was somehow software touch-switchable (and actually IDK), if it can't be touched neither seen well maybe it's better to be avoided. For now I can't imagine this works good, will see more information about it though.
As wrote earlier, my information says Xiaomi denied this is foldable one.
Screen ratio over 100% would be correct if there was more than whole front space available for use which means actually foldable phone or so. This is not. However makers may include frame as visible screen (even though that space is not specifically front and quite useless) when there's an opportunity to advertise this and it's hard to expect they won't. It's best to not pay attention to these. (generally understood in comments here but some funny mathematics in addition :) )
I assume curved screen space is actually just visible space not true touchscreen.
Some leaks or information may yet appear before it's out.
