So much complainers here.. What a succsessfull device
nindustrialny, 15 May 2017I am trying to understand whats the point of this discussion ? One side wants to convince othe... more That was not my argument.
My argument was that nobody likes bezels, that's a statement not an opinion. Sometimes people dislike the drawbacks of the bezeless designs, but as they are being defeated more and more people will get into the bezeless style.
I !Ade the same prediction back when blackberry was king. I predicted that blackberry will die because nodoby likes physical keyboards. Even those that they pretend that they do. And lo and behold , once and autocorrect and swipe became good enough people switched an masse.
Let me repeat, nobody like bezels. I'm dropping knowledge here.
Once they create a good enough palm rejection see people moving en masse away from heavily bezeled phones.
So . Tann Hauser and everyone else. STOP. Stop this useless. Discussion. You wont convince anyone who cant be convinced. Why are you doing this? What goals/aims you want to achieve? Dont you see that they [haters] are emotional vampires??? You will be exhausted and they will succeed and will laugh at you. STOP reacting. They will get you to their level and defeat you.

Its a discussion, a bit off topic I grant, but just a discussion none the less.
Get over it perhaps?
[deleted post]Afte reading your comment, this and that previous where you deny even arenas wording....
Im just wordless.
Sorry but you are right. I should be debating someone who knows some basics actually.
I am trying to understand whats the point of this discussion ? One side wants to convince others to their beliefs and opinions? If someone doesnt like bezels, dont waste your time and dont try to force him/her to change his/her mind. Etc. So many useless posts.

I think people will get used to what the market presents them with, but as there are those still today who long for legacy designs (pre-touch screen) and so will jump at say a key One for instance, so it will be with this.
Great points though.
kevin97, 15 May 2017Poor battery life, large bezels. No thanks ! Battery life is not poor at all . XZp SOT IS 8:15 hr it's excellent

Ergonomy is nested on how big the average person is which is mostly genetically determined. You can't wish a bigger hand, you can't wish bigger pants.
People prefer the smallest bezels possible as long as they don't come with drawbacks (useless aspect ratios, accidental touches and easy to break).
As they're fixing those , the bezeless look would become industry standard, a bit of how touchscreens became despite many people were insisting (back then) that physical buttons are better (no they're not, they take too much space from the screen).
The bezeless style can bring 5.5 inchers as small as the first smarphones. Phones that are both palm/pocket friendly and "information friendly". That's the holy grail that companies like Xiaomi, Samsung and LG are trying (yet -for the time being- failing) for.
More low light photos. Its the only issue that bothers me. Ok I know. Who the hell does a lot of photos at night ? Noone. Especially with mobile phones, however thats the subject that made me interested.

Well I'll agree that appears to be the way is going, there are those that seek a more balanced screen to body ratio though, something like say the Oneplus 3T as opposed to this new approach or the legacy big and heavy designs.
People like different things, that's why it's subjective. And again not everyone is yet sold that this new approach is actually for the best overall.

That's true across all medium, from phones to laptops and tablets, to TVs even.
"everybody wants a smaller and lighter device". That's literally true even for those that think that they don't.
The only reason people go to bigger devices is for screen and battery size alone (or any other extra features), nothing else! Do you think that many would buy a giant phone with a small screen in the middle? Think again, Dell tried it with the Dell Streak, what a spectacular failure that phone was...

There's a cost element that partially accounts for the sales difference between regular and plus iPhones.
Look, am not saying there are not advantages to smaller bezels, but there are drawbacks as well. And this whole 19:8 'no bezel' thing doesn't have everyone on board
I would like to see more low light shots in MANUAL mode. Will they be so bad???

Note phones sold better once they removed excessive bezels (and are actually much smaller than Xperia premium). IPhone plus sells a lot worse that regular iPhone, people prefer it for the bigger screen and battery, not the bezels.
If you make the same screen and battery size with less bezels most of everyone would prefer it. People don't like big devices, they like big screens.
The ideal is big screen in a small device, anything else is settling for less.

The XZP is big and heavy yes, that'll bother some and not others. Being big and heavy never stopped the Note range finding an audience, it hasn't stopped the 'Plus' series of iPhones being successful.
Not all people are fans of this minimal bezel philosophy, would say I'm convinced as yet, and the edge screen.....no thanks, more gimmick than feature.
My opinion of course, it won't be the same for everyone......
Anonymous, 15 May 2017Dual edge screen = cute but useless, more fragile

So you chose the wrong guy to lecture about Samsung.
IMO they should find a way to make battery removable again (don't know how, you're Samsung find a way)
Use 17:9, so when soft buttons are on the usable screen would be 16:9
Use true 4k (4096x2160), given the 17:9 aspect ratio. That way they'll make gear vr useful (right now it's useless due to the low resolution and screen door effect of QHD+ pentile).
Also true 4k is a film standard, so it would look great to many movies.
Use more ram so that they'll be future proofed and better ram management so that background apps will be closed by the OS only when leaking battery. Less loading is huge for day to day experience.
Lastly they should use underclass fingerprint sensor, the fingerprint in the back is useless.
Oh fix the over saturated photos too.
See I'm nowhere nears a Samsung fan. Doesn't mean that I'll like Sony. Those two along with HTC form the unholy trinity of middling quality at crazy prices.
