    Got pretty much this with a nicer version of Android and just overall better build and performance in OnePlus 7 Pro, it's awesome. It might not be perfect in every way, but the display is so nice!

    Ok, watch the camera tick to the side when retracted. Build quality is shit.
    Btw, what about a retracting additional display? :D

    I’d actually accept a selfie camera free phone if it meant we would not only lose the bezels, but use that saved expense on a pumped up 30mp 3 lens (standard-tele-wide) camera array. Selfies, whatevs, but damn I want a killer media machine that can make dslrs obsolete.

    This also decreases privacy concerns by design. If the rear camera was on the pop up aswell then everyone would be able to know when someones filming, so people couldn't creep on people as easily.. I like this design alot! No notch, yes privacy, this is what should have been done instead of the notch everyone hates.

    • MR YUP
      MR YUP 3 months ago

      @Зарядка Ориджинал Don't have that much time but, I can say a few things. It's pretty much android with skin that looks like a mix of iOS and android (it has a type of control center). It has a nice gesture options to see recent apps and close apps. It can have live wallpapers and launchers (I have Nova launcher). I like the phone a lot especially with it's notchless screen. What do you want to know specifically?

    An exposed camera is not safe. After the momo hacking issue i kind of find it intrusion of privacy to have an extremely smart device having its eyes open on me 24*7. A pop out camera is safe

    I wonder how feasible it would be for a phone manufacturer to just have cameras on only one side of the phone....and then screens on both sides of the phone. Obviously you wouldn't need a full sized screen on the other side with the cameras, just one big enough so that when you turn the phone around to take a selfie you can see what you're capturing. That way, you could truly eliminate the notch on one side of the phone, and have a small screen on the other side for selfies.

    With new innovs., why none are able to beat iPhones or the Pixels ? 🤔

    what we need is a camera so small but still good that it’s in the screen itself, i know were years away from that but i think that’s the future of smartphone cameras

  • Adham El-Kady

    Wouldn't it be better if they replace this moving mechanical electronic part with a manual spring which pops out applying a small press on it and this should be more durable and cost efficient and also easier than using a motor and solves the issue of the ( notch ) thing.
