Really "Software" is where Google shines at.
But when it comes to the "Hardware"... Well... :|
Dometalican, 01 Jan 2020Agree with every bit of this article. Pixel 5 needs to have a bigger battery, fingerprint read... moreThat would be awesome but NVIDIA needs to make a more modern SoC to even consider 4K or 90Hz.
I've been dreaming of 4x A77+ 4x A55, 3GHz peak speed for all 4 A77, 10nm and a 512 core Pascal GPU (currently it's 256-Maxwell). The X1 is currently drawing about 15W unthrottled. I'm pretty sure this would be doable at about 10W throttled, and much much more when docked where power and thermals are expandable (with a new dock with integrated cooling).
Also why a SSD? NVMe storage works. I'd settle for UFS 3.0 storage. Reads are more important than writes. Especially on a cartridge-based system.
But honestly Stadia began with a bang. A self-explosion bang. It had tons of issues, kinda sad for a filthy rich cloud monster that overhyped the whole thing for almost a year.
GSMArena despite the various winners and losers out there in the tech industry you ALWAYS remain a winner. Keep up the good work in 2020 and Happy New Year to the entire GSMArena team.
Agree with every bit of this article. Pixel 5 needs to have a bigger battery, fingerprint reader, headphone jack, and at least a wide-angle camera on both sides if they think they can compete with the others. Oh yea, Pixel 5 (non-XL) should also be at a 5.5" phone. Since there isn't a compact market outside of the S10e, they could put tons of effort on that phone as well.
Oh yea and as for Stadia, if my prayers are answered and Nintendo makes a Switch Pro with 1080p undocked panel at 90Hz refresh rate, 4K@60fps upscaling docked, 8,500 mAH battery minimum, 6GB of RAM/64GB Solid State Drive with a 128GB SSD version for slightly more money, more powerful and efficient processor, Snapdragon X55 at the helm with global 4G and 5G bands, Wifi 6 support, more advanced cooling for both the console and docking station, and better support for LAN while keeping the expandable memory at 2TB starting at $100 more than the original Switch ($150 more for the extra hard drive space), Stadia is straight-up dead the way I see it.
"Samsung's Galaxy S III's hand gestures were about as useful"
That might be the S4 no?
Anyway you also forgot to mention that the Pixel 4's only true biometric option is region-locked due to spectrum regulation. Either you don't know and infringe against the law or you don't get to use any form of biometric authentication on your device (taking a 2D picture of your face does NOT qualify as a secure form of biometric authentication).
Does anyone think there's no winner in this article? Lol
