I found it interesting that the article asks the question "how can Samsung convince buyers to stick with the conventional, current-generation handsets instead of opting for shiny new foldable phones?" I think the current problem is exactly the opposite - getting buyers to trust the new folding technology, especially after the initial bomb of the Fold release.
#HTC released a truly innovative #smartphone. The #Exodus1s can hold a full ledger and has the capability to run a full bitcoin node. It's the first of its kind. There's only one catch - it's not available in the U.S. #cryptocurrency #Bitcoin #BTC #crypto #digitalcurrency #technews #innovation
Maybe it's a bad idea to rely on facial recognition software and other forms of biometric authentication systems to protect personal phones from prying eyes? #Google's newest smartphone, the #Pixel4, can be unlocked even if your eyes are closed. #Samsung's most popular phones have a bug that lets people bypass the thumbprint scanner with any old thumbprint. Yikes! #Samsung10 #SamsungGalaxy #facialrecognition #biometricsauthentication #smarttech #smartphone #mobilephone
I love the 5.7-inch display for the Pixel 4 and this will probably excite people who don't like big phones. The Pixel 4 XL has a 6.1-inch display, a slight downgrade from the Pixel 3 XL which was 6.3 inches. The main upgrade seems to be in the camera department.
There was so much on offer during the Google event, but what caught my eye was the idea of computational photography on Pixel 4. It's "ambient technology" theme is a unique invention as well. #Google #Pixel4 #computationalphotography #Chromebook
Was the Face ID Apple's initial idea? Either way, the Pixel 4 will now feature the face unlock technology and not a fingerprint sensor. It will also be interesting to see how the hand gesture commands will work (Project Soli technology). What is your take-home from this event?
The most common myth has been that your phone can explode if it is left charging overnight. For a long time, almost everyone believed this. What I have picked from the article is that the battery doesn't have to drop to zero before recharging!
Rumours sometimes have an element of truth to them. A more affordable Galaxy Note 10 model could be in the offing, but in my view, the company should incorporate a wider variety of shades (having just two could be limiting).
I just don't see the foldable phone thing take off. I understand it is just an idea that these companies have but will it really work? It makes the phones bulky where slim design is so important for portability.
Once just a rumor, now it's real. #Microsoft revealed its new phone named the Surface Duo. It runs on Android and works with Google Apps, so all your favorites are there. This is a pretty unique #smartphone that will come out near the holidays during 2020, which means it's a little early to crank up the hype machine. #MicrosoftSurfaceDuo #phone #mobilephone #Android
