AnonD-82756, 11 Jan 2020Hasn't the whole E-Ink thing been done before and failed forget the OEM VR was done before and failed. That doesn't preclude concepts from coming back and being successful when better technology becomes available.

Its the best for viewing or reading, but since they do not push beyond 7inch, price and demand stay about the same. For example you get 8inch in color and hi res, with android, movies, games etc. no need to have another device just for reading. Actually in good lightning even eye strain is similar(with no pwm or high enough flickering).

I guess the worst obstacle currently is that the colours are quite dull, so used for photos it looks pale or dusty. So they are not (yet?) optimal for photo-frames.

So what would be optimal with current technological limits would be something like the Yota, but with a colour e-ink. This way we could have phones that lasted for a week again for the ordinary usage, but could also do stuff that required a fast display.
I have a dream that some come up with a (micro)LED display, but fully transparent (no polarisers), and with the colour e-ink under, so we could 'fall back' to the e-ink outdoors, or just when we wanted to save the power, or reduce eye-strain.
This is quite cool!
I wonder if it would be possible to create a two-layered smartphone screen, with a normal OLED on top, and it could turn transparent and reveal an e-ink below it, which could be used for reading without eye strain, and things like an always-on display that doesn't drain battery or degrade with time.
e-ink is best for reading and great battery endurance so watch and tablet is way better choice. Still considering its price, watch is probably the only option. They also cannot compare fully for every kind of tablet usage, phones going 120hz are already out of touch probably.

Main advantage of using this type of display would be battery life. Tho they should be putting this type of displays on smart watches, tablets for e readers and big screens for advertising and information boards. Imagine watching a Youtube video on a smartphone that feels like a GIF due to a refresh rate of less than 10 frames per second?
If it is priced normally I will buy it. I wanna get rid of glare of smartphones.

LOL, 10 Jan 2020Kind of pointless, because microLED will be here in about 3 years time.Not sure what relevance your comment has..
This is tailored for reading, anti glare and all
Why bring up micro LED that won't be in phones in 3 years .. highly unlikely with how expensive and energy draining they are currently
I had seen the 'Dasung not e-reader'. Yeah, it's name like that. The refresh rate is really good. Hisense probably figured it out.
