Why Apple and Samsung do not give us the true flagship of all screens



This article may contain personal views and opinions from the author.

I recently showed Samsung Galaxy A80 a friend and he was immediately impressed by the phone. "Why is not this a leader," he asked, wondering how he would never hear about it. It makes sense for me, but just because it's my job. For him, the elegant facade of the Galaxy A80 and the "futuristic", as he called it, the rotating camera and sliding design looked infinitely better and more advanced than the Galaxy S10's holes display. And with that I can not argue, it looks cooler. Even most of our readers seem to agree, based on one of our recent surveys. However, what at first glance may seem futuristic is in fact nothing more than a compromise to eliminate an issue-in this case a camera or a pocketbook-that creates other, probably worse, problems in the grand scheme of things.

But the Galaxy A80 looks much cooler and has a number of advantages over the Galaxy S10 flagship line. Do not you? For one, he has no notch or a hole in his screen. Even more, although there is no commitment from the camera itself, you can now use the main camera, which simply rotates to face you when needed. This means that you can take high quality self-esteem using all the advantages of setting up a triple A80 camera without compromising the beautiful screen from the edge to the end. Then, why are the leading phones offered by Samsung, Apple, Huawei, LG and all other major brands, just annoying glass and metal plates with different types and holes in their screens, while more affordable devices than some of the same companies push the boundaries of the design of smartphones with sliding displays and pop-up cameras? Well, there are a few, a lot good reasons for that.

That's not because companies can not do it, but because it's not a good idea

Why Apple and Samsung do not give us the true flagship of all screens

Adventurous designs, such as those, are something that smaller Chinese companies will do (read: lower-ranking in the market), but Samsung and Huawei (Honor) have now embraced some of the sensibilities near the winners in their more accessible smartphones. But the leading models play with confidence with their solid state designs, camera holes and incisions.

The number one reason for this is likely to be because the guiding lines are more popular and are likely to sell more, and the solid construction is just more evidence of the crash. This may sound like a strange reason to avoid futuristic slide displays and slippery cameras, but when you sell a large volume, look for premium prices and invest heavily in marketing, you want to deliver a reliable product that will likely survive a few drops or some random exposure of the elements. The more people get their products on the product, the more they will be abused. So simple. Moving phone phones are simply more prone to mechanical problems and do not offer protection from water or dust, while solid designs have proved to be significantly more reliable.

It seems our readers agree that the Galaxy A80 does something in its approach

And the second main reason is that "strange" designs like those that do not offer a significant improvement to the overall user experience. Naturally, they solve the problem by having a notch or chamber with holes, but at what cost? My colleague Preslav recently shared the experiences he had with various Chinese phones in the past period over the past few months. He is described as someone who is "hardly in itself" so he thought that the additional activities needed to actually reach the now hidden (or indifferent) missing camera camera would not bother him much. It turns out it is wrong:

Although there are people who may not agree entirely with this opinion, it perfectly serves to illustrate the importance of turning the front camera into smartphones – even to someone who barely devotes itself to themselves. Simply making an essential feature is more difficult to access, because we do not have the technology to create the most optimal design without some kind of compromise, it's not the best idea ever.

Last year, we call the gap (and its derivatives) stopping the whole screen on the phone. Now we can safely say that mobile phones with sliding and mechanized cameras facing the front are also stopping, temporary compromise-a literal, structural compromise – on our way there. Which approach you like comes down to personal taste, but companies like Samsung and Huawei have good reasons to keep experimental solutions confined to a certain number of markets and product lines or not even accepting them in the Apple case.
