    It’s not that smartphones are boring now, it’s law of diminishing returns. We’ve become used to all the basic features that used to amaze us. An amazing camera, high processing power, smooth UI, great display, etc are all taken for granted so any further improvements will seem small as the basic use of a smartphone has reached its limit.

    Kudos to Samsung for trying with the foldable phone though - eventually they did a pretty good job with it (maybe the camera wasn't the best,) but it was the screen size & convenience many ppl were looking for -& they invested a lot in it - r&d at Samsung is huge, & goes in various directions - & then other companies copy/amend their ideas🙏💜

    I think these all come with a drawback though, after all that resource, I had never heard of a company that prioritizes the screen and its endurance. The more a screen is being lit up to get that color. There has to be a drawback. Because my phone literally has burns along its bazels.

    As an artist I’m really exited for this. Because I don’t have the money to buy a tablet I can put that money I would normally put into my smartphone .. well into my smartphone and my tablet. I don’t have to have both, if I end up not liking digital art I still have a use out of it since it can be my day to day phone and it doesn’t look weird, it looks like a normal sized (ratio) phone.
    Maybe that’s just my very specific case but it’s like it was created specifically for my situation and I’m so so exited to be able to buy one of those and be able to have a phone and a digital art tablet without loosing money, accessibility, use etc
    Can’t wait.

    I'm super excited about smartphones, now that I have a good job and I'm able to save money I have kept up with the smartphone hype. I'm hoping to be able to upgrade my phone minimum once a year, and your channel only makes me more excited to see what comes next. It's unbelievable what we're able to hold in our hands today, I think back to when I had a rooted iPod touch with a fake fingerprint scanner app. I never would have believed that pretty much every smartphone would have a fingerprint scanner built into the display 8 years later

  • Wildfya
    Wildfya Year ago +1

    The designs are usually different but I'm confident in saying that what the phone can do from a OS perspective isn't all that different from most OS's.. while design is important to me it always comes down to Camera quality & what this phone can do that others can't do like fold/flip or popping up the camera ect.. hell even most cameras in smartphones do relatively the same stuff it's just a matter of which one has the better quality.. so while there are many different designed phones (definitely not as much as before imo) there's not enough differences in other things such as the camera, OS, Screen ect

    I loved Huawei's implementation of the foldable smartphone, but yeah, that make that thing SUPER fragile with the outward display. THOUGH, this rollable future could be interesting, use a pop-up camera in conjunction and I'm sold. THOUGH, personally, I'd be okay without a front facing camera, since they're usually nuked comparatively and if they're from an Asian company always has some smoothing post-processing even when turned off.

    I think the problem with smartphones being boring nowadays is the shape,aside of the folding and the rolling one.

    The thing I would like to see with the invisible front camera is it being in the centre of the phone , it seems a more intuitive place , especially with FaceTiming , then it will naturally be like your making eye contact with the caller , and selfie’s without people looking at them self instead of the camera 🤷‍♂️

    It’s true especially for some game apps on Apple. Nowadays I see almost ‘half’ of the number of game apps requiring in-app purchases and/or multiplayer modes, including the internet which may be required in some apps. This annoys me a lot especially when cases get onto using the internet while playing a multiplayer game and having almost no offline gaming.

    For me personally I've been coming up against the problem where I see a cool phone I want and can afford but my cellphone carrier hasn't approved licensing for it so the phone might not work with my network. I understand that if people had easier access to phones like the Red Magic 6 then Samsung wouldn't sell as well so that's probably why.

    Not gonna lie, smartphones are amazing today. Lots of features, processing power and it can replace a lot of other devices, but for me they're still a bunch of slabs. I used to love smartphones back when we had some physical keyboards, different softwares and shapes. Of course nobody wants to stuck in time, have some n95 or some other bulky form factor with slow and old softwares, but I would love to see more of this innovation and different aspects. Only recently I got excited with LG Wing. I know, there are some better multitasking smartphone, but there is something on that form factor that tells me "there is a lot of room for software innovation, for user experience".

    I missed the subject of security (i.e. under display fingerprint reading and what more could come of it) and data/synchronization:. As far as the synch goes, the software industry isn't up to par as, let's say Apple. Switching phones and putting everything exactly where it was before with all the info is just not happening with Android. And I'd like to see other OSs evolving faster (i.e. Linux) to get more competition in the smartphone industry.

  • Truth Teller

    I equate a Smart Phone to a TV. In a race to compete with each other, all these companies rolled out all the technology way too fast, and now there isn’t a ton they can do, aside from small gimmicky stuff. But you know what? That’s fine. I love smartphone and what they do. I don’t want drastic changes. They’re great, as is. They don’t need to be constantly innovated.

    I really like your channel and I understand the context in which you are calling them fun. However, there is something about those retro smartphones nevertheless even if it was just raw physical appeal. I guess back then, every brand had their own way to appeal to the customers. Now, the moment one brand makes a breakthrough everybody else just copies it so all the phones in the market remain pretty much the same. Your phone won't really "stand out" to say

    my view on this is that if they go straight up to a week of charge with the same size battery, it would leave 0 room for any other improvments in any other parts of the phone because once apple or android has a phone that can last a week, any phone that doesn't meet that standard will be seen as "bad". This means that there would be no playing around with how much extra space a much smaller battery could give us. I'm not saying that they should go for the first option but i think it would be best if they just increased it a little more to around 2-3 days of battery life from 1 charge

    Beautifully presented.
    My own list of 'Most important feature I wish phones had right now'
    1. Instant Notes - A stand-alone note taking feature. Even if the 'phone' is off. A way to instantly turn on the display, scribble in a note, perhaps on a giant sheet if you will you can pinch and move around on. Once the phone is on, it of course can access this data as well.
    2. Instant Record - Like Instant notes, instantly start recording voice. Again, this is unrelated to the whole phone needing to be on.
    3. Instant photograph - Again, like Instant notes and record, just take a bloody picture right this moment.
    4. Instant gallery - Access to your instant photographs, but most importantly, used for things like QR codes, and Airline tickets, etc. Again, even if the phone is off.
    All these features would only use enough power to show display, and would skip the OS, and overhead. But would be shared memory when the phone is indeed on.
    5. Gestures - Your phone knows an amazing amount about what is going on. Orientation, shaking, and where it is being touched, and how. All of that should be used to allow virtual buttons. For example, while the phone is off, rub the camera a few time while holding upright to take a picture. My phone already turns the LED on when I shake it with force. One of the most useful things I've seen decades. But so simple.

    The thing I hate most about phones today is to have a hole in the screen. I use my phone everyday, but really, that front camera I'm using maybe (!maybe) once a month. So why have a hole in my screen ? No thanks. For now I'll stick with my S9+. Great video btw ! Thank you.
    LE: for mobile gaming, I'd like to see a VR tech using the phone's hardware to render on some low weight VR glasses all the games. I'm the owner of a Oculus Quest brick and boy, it does hurt using it... after 30 minutes of gaming, it's a real pain to keep playing... all the weight pressing on the neck, chick bones, etc.
    Some 150 grams weight VR glasses would be much better. This is a tech I would instantly buy, to play games, read books and watch movies with.

    Three things that amaze me here, the rollable that will be potentially affordable once massively released and the foldable killers of the future.. second, the invisible beneath the screen cameras once released for every phone is genius, I am thinking about that can be also applied to gaming monitors and TV too so people will not buy external streaming webcams anymore. Lastly, the graphene batteries finally are the solution to my dream of having phone battery charge that will last for longer days. This is the future. Let us all hold it together people.

    You should really do a Yotaphone 2 review, you already mentioned the brand as one of the smartphone fails. It was supported pretty well for a 2014 smartphone that not many people owned. It had basically the same specs as Sharp Aquos and a fully touchscreen 960x540 e-ink display (Yotaphone 1 had just a small touch panel on the back) which was a night & day difference compared to the previous model, but it was obviously priced higher than the other phones and had to be positioned as a premium device. There were the YD201 (Russian/Global version) and the YD206 which iirc couldn't be updated to a new software version over the air, thankfully updating it to the YD201 software is pretty easy. They were selling the phones for as low as $130 at one point because they sold the manufacturing to their own sister company in China, which let them produce more for a smaller price.

    This dude makes the most interesting tech videos, according to me. It takes a lot of research and work to collect all this info and present in a way he does. Not many Clip-Sharers do that, every single video in this channel is thought provoking. I wonder how much brainstorming he has to do before making these videos. Best part is how well these videos are framed and put together, getting so much insight in tech in the most effortless way.

    I think that the term "boring" will soon become true. Like laptops. Innovation exists, but will most often end up losing, instead of sticking to the same.
    The form factor has almost been standardised. More things will become standards in the future.

Your perfect annunciation is alone worth tuning in to hear and really adds an air of authority among the proliferation of current day Americanisms and slovenly speech.

    Really excited to get a new phone in 1 year. I'm using a Galaxy S8 right now, and I try to get a new phone every 4 years so each new phone can feel like a huge leap in technology and performance. Although tbh the S8, for a phone from mid 2017 still holds its own pretty decently, even today in almost 2021.

    If graphine is that good why not have a battery that you can keep when you upgrade and just slot into your new phone? I can't see it being very recyclable if it's that tough so just an idea. What about having a camera strip on the back of your phone thats attached to the display so you could just roll it out to use as the selfie camera ..like an alternative to the old swivel cameras ? This way you get the same awesome quality for selfie as you do the back camera? As for mobile gaming you need a flagship grade GPU for the best performance so maybe Nvidia could come back in some way because they destroyed Qualcomm chips when they had the tegra series. On android there's only cod mobile that's got decent graphics and worth playing..there are other high graphics games but none have pulled off what cod mobile achieved and not everyone can afford a high-end phone which is one reason we see such garbage games on mobile

    I think one part that's ignored is the screen size. See playstation 1 and 2 ran on CRT TVs technically
    Hdmi started from ps3 and uptil 32 inch 1080p screen the experience was great. Similarly ps4 for 4k tv supporting upto 46inches+ and ps5 needs atleast 4k to 8k tv with high refresh rates that starts of at 55inch and goes beyond 100inches.
    Coming back to phones we do have high resolution phones but then again phones are like psp aka small screens n well working on small screens in my opinion require low texture details

      Getting a new phone is boring now. It is exciting for me to set up a new phone, customize my settings, experiment with the camera. But a week later, and im back to doing exactly what i was doing on my old phone. Browsing youtube, reddit and insta. Scrolling through a news feed that barely updates. No point in upgrading phones for me until my battery starts to not hold a charge

    What if we coated a phone in one layer of graphene, yes the screen might be a bit darker, but we could have the graphite go around camera lenses of sapphire. Would this not make phones super strong?
    Edit: it might be dangerous since it conducts electricity and temperature well so maybe not?

    You were saying about that camera you pop off the phone and record a view from the phone camera at same time as the pop off one...
    That kind of reminds me of something on my old Galaxy S4 phone, that I could record from the back camera and have a small box in the recording of the front camera recording myself separately in the same shot. I love that feature on my phone! But that removable, still functioning camera is a little better in that you can aim it where ever instead of just fixed at one spot on the phone.
