Arguments from ALKALEIDO aluminum back to SwiftKey keyboard? Really? Even if they add all the different things inside the aluminum to make it shine or something like that, in the end for most people it will still feel like it is normal aluminum, except it shines more. ALKALEIDO is just a name out of it, with aluminum plus the things they add in to make it shine more, and they call it ALKALEIDO, thats it, but it still feels like normal aluminum
Kris, 02 Nov 2017As a guy who goes to the gym, is this phone heavy because I want one, I'm one of those people ... moreNope it's no heavy and it definitely have better build quality than the other one, pretty tanky gotta say in my own user experience
UltimateZeroSeconds, 02 Nov 2017Open your eyes and your mind, the paragraph you didn't read the meaning fully, let me copy pas... moreAnd after all your talk and quotes, it still only "glossy aluminium" as it says in your quote...
Alkaiedo is only "Glossy Aluminum"......its as simple as that
UltimateZeroSeconds, 02 Nov 2017There are no perfect keyboard in smartphone especially your are using multiple languages. I ha... moreCan't you read it boy? I said "some like it". It means indirectly that it has pros. If a keyboard have no pros, no one will like it right? I'll use whatever keyboard I like in my phone. This is non of your business. Because this is my phone. Not yours.
P.S. If you want to review swiftkey keyboard, review it in playstore. GSMA is not a site to review apps.
UltimateZeroSeconds, 02 Nov 2017Open your eyes and your mind, the paragraph you didn't read the meaning fully, let me copy pas... moreIt is smooth to touch and has premium feel but it attracts fingerprints more than a regular aluminium and these fingerprints are very very hard to clean unlike regular aluminium. This should be considered before buying a black variant.
Macbeth, 01 Nov 2017Guessing you've never seen Nokia Lumia 1020?Yes.. also Nokia 808!
[deleted post]Alkaleido is made by a japanese company , I guess the name is Kobe Steel.
Not same of chinese use..
leo R, 27 Oct 2017Yeah. Some likes it. For me, the prediction bar above the keyboard is an eyesore and no option... moreThere are no perfect keyboard in smartphone especially your are using multiple languages. I had trying some other they also have pros and cons, shall I mention here to make you even love SwiftKey? Or why are you mention the cons only but never see the pros? Oh I forgot you only know the other keyboard is full of pros.
Anonymous, 02 Nov 2017Its only glossy Aluminum.....a quote form your link.....hahahaOpen your eyes and your mind, the paragraph you didn't read the meaning fully, let me copy paste to you and avoid you trying misleading people:
"Typically, after the anodizing process, you can still see slight lines from the material showing through on the surface. With ALKALEIDOÂÂ™, this situation is much improved. This gives it a shiny, ÂÂ‘shimmeryÂÂ’ look that we think is beautiful from every angle. It is really challenging to create glossy aluminium, especially a large part like the full back section of the Xperia XZ, and in high volumes."
Do you know what is Anodizing?
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish. Aluminum is ideally suited to anodizing, although other nonferrous metals, such as magnesium and titanium, also can be anodized.
Therefore Alkaleido is a refined aluminium with Decorative, Durable, Corrosion-resistant, Anodic oxide finish material and in high volumes !
As a guy who goes to the gym, is this phone heavy because I want one, I'm one of those people who hates sleek 'n' slim design. I need something to feel rock solid or should I go for XZ premium??
This is the best phone I've ever seen
I am planning to change from Xperia z5
Using 2 years
