  • The pixels aren’t transparent though right? Only the cathode and anode. So when you take pictures, wouldn’t you see the light emitting OLED pixels?

  • Apple Suppliers already have under display sensors used in the notch and under display camera is already there. The reason why Apple cannot release them yet, Probably because they have to use up All the pre ordered parts for the iphoneX series of phones. severe over estimation of sales led to excess amount of unused iphonex parts. temporarily preventing ordering new parts for new phone design, stopping innovation dead on its tracks.

  • To be honest likeI've never really been one of the people to care too much about the whole bezel-less phone trend. never really understood why that was a huge selling point. I genuinely don't think I've ever met a person who actually cared whether or not their phone had bezzels. though I will admit that doesn't come up in conversation that often so it's probably more just confirmation bias than anything but like regardless my whole thing is if you still have to have a notch for the stuff at the top why even bother it just makes a really weird shape to the screen that kind of ruins the point of removing the bezels in the first place luckily at least on my current phone it actually has an option to essentially put like fake bezels at the top where's the notch is to make it more like a traditional phone

  • i don't understand why phone manufacturers cannot make a phone without a front camera at all, only people that use the front camera are Instagram whores. i'm sure if Samsung or another phone manufacturer were to make a separate phone without a front camera it would sell.

  • Nobody seemed to have noticed, that you not only get rid of the notch but maybe of your privacy as well. Tell me, who wants to have a hidden and undiscoverable camera in the tv in the hotel room? Especially when someone may want to watch certain types of movies for inspiration? Or in the bathroom mirror, which can display the news in order to inform of what’s going on in the world, even before someone wearing any clothes at all? Let alone the other places cameras could then be hidden. You maybe?!? Well I guess not! As soon as the camera can’t be spotted anymore you can’t prevent that from happening without cloaking the devices completely, which will render them useless. The phrase "Big Brother" will get a much creepier meaning... Never forget that everything that can be done will be done! Oh by the way, I discovered such kind of mirror in an hotel in Vancouver. Hopefully without such a camera! 🥴 You can keep any typo found. 😜

    Mike CrabtreeMike Crabtree13 gün önce
  • Actually... My biggest issue with smartphones is the inability to properly cover over the cameras. As it stands there are only a couple of solutions; get a phone case that covers the cameras or some other solution that only really works if you have your phone *put away;* use sticky tac which I'd imagine every functioning person could understand why that wouldn't work, use tape which would also be quite unreliable unless you put it underneath a phone case and then it's a huge hassle to remove when you *do* want to use the camera, or actually open up the phone and physically remove the camera, which is also.... yeah. So even more well-integrated cameras? Not really something I'm into. Kind of the opposite of it, actually. It's nice when I want to use it but when I don't, I've heard way too many stories about those things being hacked and people being watched or even recorded without even having a way to know about it. If I could afford it I'd really rather have a dedicated, quality camera that isn't connected to the internet, instead of having always-on cameras on a daily use item like my phone. Oh, and, not fingerprint readers either. Seriously, I'd really rather my personal data be just that - my personal data. I realize I'm online so I can kiss that goodbye anyway, but still. I'd rather not welcome more infringement on that into my life with open arms.

  • I think we should do away with not just those stupid notches but rounded screen corners as well. Have you ever tried viewing a picture that supposedly occupies the entire screen but the corners were cut off because of the screen's rounded corners? It's quite annoying. I hope this stupidity doesn't spill over to TVs. Just imagine something blocking the screen like a notch or rounded corners. And some bezels please. Yeah thin bezels look cool but it sucks using my S9+ because I always unintentionally touch the edges and things go crazy. I much prefer using my Nokia 6.1 which has the good old 16:9 aspect ratio, no notch, and no rounded screen corners.

  • Honest to god i want to see a bezelless phone without the selfie camera at all, simple as that Who tf takes selfies anymore anyways? And for the odd few that you do, just turn the phone around. Not a convenient solution for vloggers but there will certainly be a phone on the market for them, not everyone is a vlogger. Besides this is also a privacy benefit for most consumers anyways. I mean seriously whats the last time you really used a selfie cam? I can say that i did but its certainly not often and surely the back camera can work as well, maybe less conveniently but still. Or just have an option to buy a seperate bluetooth viewfinder as a simple solution and a moneycow.
