Samsung make fun of Google Pixel 2 XL display

Remember when Samsung used to mock everything about Apple’s iPhone in TV ads that used to go viral on YouTube? Well, it turns out Samsung is still ready to take a hit at competitors when it feels threatened, even if those competitors are its partners.

Pixel 2 XL Display

Samsung this week released a commercial that focuses on the display quality of its samsung s7 edge screen replacement . But if you’ve been keeping up with tech news, you know that can only mean one thing. Samsung is quietly going after Google’s Pixel 2 XL.

Google’s new phablet is riddled with screen issues that are not easy to fix. They affect the overall screen experience, and that’s why the Pixel 2 XL is not exactly a samsung s7 edge screen replacement I’d recommend to anyone.

Samsung’s passive-aggressive Galaxy S8 and Note 8 commercial is published on YouTube as unlisted. That means you can only watch it if you have the link. The ad only talks about displays, but Samsung doesn’t do any of the talking. The 30-second video is a collection of clips taken from various YouTube videos that praise Samsung screens. “Top tech reviewers share their thoughts on the amazing Galaxy screen,” Samsung says in the video description.

There’s no hit at Google or other competitors. And because Google is still a major partner, don’t expect Samsung to mock it as hard as it used to do in those anti-Apple ads. In fact, Samsung has stopped bashing Apple in its commercials.

But the implications are there because the video was published this week, just as more Pixel 2 XL screen issues were discovered. Samsung really wants everybody to know that its screens are highly praised by users, whereas other OLED screens aren’t. Google’s (and LG’s) Pixel 2 XL problems will surely help Samsung to sell more OLED screens to Apple, Google and others.

Check out the iPhone X's smooth app-switching

With the release of the iPhone X just around the corner, we're starting to see more pictures and videos of the device in the wild. Some of them simply show off the iPhone's original design, while others showcase brand new features.

This video falls into that second category. An early iPhone X video on Imgur shows off the lg parts 's new app-switching function, which you can see here:

The brand-new iPhone X marks the first iPhone to come without a dedicated home button. App-switching replaces one of the home button's jobs, to call up a list of your recent apps so you can re-open one. The video shows the iPhone X's ability to switch between apps by putting your thumb on the bottom of the iPhone's screen and then moving it from one side to the other in a small arcing motion. The transition between apps look pretty smooth.

This represents a radical design change for Apple, and it's too soon to say if phone buyers will fully embrace the changes. Along with removing the fingerprint reader, Apple has also added the controversial Face ID, which shifts the way buyers can biometrically log in without tapping in a pin.

Another hands-on video of the iPhone X appeared online this week by the daughter of an Apple employee. It more generally shows off the lg screen replacement X's hardware and software:

While the new design and features give the iPhone X some update appeal, it's hard to know what they'll be like before the release. A recent Bloomberg report claims that Apple eased its accuracy standards of Face ID in order to speed up bottlenecked production. However, Apple was quick to defend its tech.

ZTE Axon M With Dual Full-HD Displays Launched

We have been hearing of several handset makers working on foldable smartphones for a long time. The feat, however, has been achieved by ZTE. The Axon M is the company's first dual display smartphone with a hinge. ZTE Axon M has been launched exclusively on AT&T in the US, and will be available starting next month. The Chinese company has confirmed that the Axon M will also be making its way to other markets including China, Europe and Japan.

The iphone 6 plus screen comes with four modes including Dual mode, which will allow users to use two different apps in separate screens; Extended mode can stream email or allows users play games on a full 6.75-inch full-HD display; Mirror mode, which allows users to mirror the same content on both the screen when folded with both screens in different directions, and Traditional mode, which allows users to use the device as a conventional smartphone. ZTE Axon M will be available at $24.17 (roughly Rs. 1,600) for 30 months on AT&T Next when they have eligible service.

For specifications, the ZTE Axon M features two 5.2-inch dual full-HD TFT LCD displays with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. It is powered by Snapdragon 821 SoC, which may seem slightly outdated.

Expect MASSIVE iPhone X Delays

It's been fairly well publicised that Apple's iPhone X is having supply problems and won't, according to the most prominent analysts, be available in decent numbers until inside 2018.

The situation might be a lot worse that previously feared, however, with news that Apple's manufacturing partner, Foxconn, finalised an initial shipment of only 46,500 iPhone X units; delivered the the UAE and the Netherlands from Zhengzhou and Shanghai.

Stack that up against expected pre-order demand and it's looking pretty grim. KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, predicted 40-50 million pre-orders for the s7 edge screen price and said Apple would need 30-35 million units to meet demand inside 2017. Recent reports also indicate that Apple fans are not buying the iPhone 8, instead preferring to wait for the iPhone X; the iPhone 7 is currently selling more units than the iPhone 8 (presumably those who are upgrading from the iPhone 6 or earlier).

That initial shipment pales in comparison to Apple's usual initial shipment figures. New reports indicate Foxconn is now producing 400,000 s7 edge lcd replacement units per week, up from 100,000 previously. Analysts believe the source of the supply problem is not the OLED panels, which were previously thought to be an issue. Instead, it's the 3D TrueDepth face scanner camera, the one used for the Face ID biometric identification which replaces the Touch ID fingerprint scanner. Allegedly, this tech requires two key components working in tandem, and one of those components is only being produced in the tens of thousands of units, which is out of sync with Apple's other component production rates. Manufacturing yields have reportedly fallen below 10%

OnePlus Says User Data Wasn't Shared

OnePlus recently faced public backlash after a researcher discovered that the company's devices were collecting unanonymised user data without user consent. Chinese handset maker responded in no time claiming that it was collecting data to improve its service, and that it was standard practice in OEMs. The company, however, has now taken some prompt decisions which include a new "opt-in" option for the user experience program.

OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei in a forum post has addressed issues, and vow to stop collecting information like sony parts numbers, MAC addresses and Wi-Fi information. "We'd like to emphasise that at no point have we shared this information with outside parties. The analytics we're discussing in this post, which we only look at in aggregate, are collected with the intention of improving our product and service offerings," Pei added.

He stressed that users can at any point opt out of usage analytics collection by navigating to Settings > Advanced > Join user experience program. Pei further confirmed that OnePlus devices by end of October will have the prompt in the setup wizard which will ask whether they want to join the company's user experience program. Pei said that the setup wizard will clearly indicate that the program collects usage analytics.

"In addition, we will include a terms of service agreement that further explains our analytics collection," he added.

The privacy issue on OnePlus devices was first reported back in January though an in-depth report surfaced last week. Security researcher and developer Christopher Moore discovered that OnePlus was collecting unanonymised analytics data from its users including specific user patterns to a company server without prior user permission. The details allegedly being collected included the sony replacement parts number, IMEI number, mobile serial number, MAC address, mobile network names, and battery status more.

Previously, many iOS users complained that with the latest iOS 11 update, the battery was draining at a faster rate and some also reported Exchange server issue as well which was resolved by iOS 11.0.1 update.

Meanwhile, according to a data collected by analytics company Mixpanel, the latest iOS 11 is installed on 25.28 percent of iOS devices after being released to the public last week.
