Knowing how to read a text doesn't necessarily mean that you also understand it. 20-40% of people are suffering from functional illiteracy; while the majority cannot understand what they read, about 5-10% can read and write, understand the words but they just can't understand the meaning of the phrase and their contexts. You proved numerous times that you can't understand a simple text; I know I'm not a native English speaker, but I have always explained my messages and you have no excuse for misunderstanding things.

I would say you lie when you say you have proven I have not understood simple text. However, you only believe what you think is correct, even if in reality it is total rubbish. So while you are wrong and not a liar, you are a delusional fool. You may attempt to explain your comments but you fail to justify them miserably, then try to modify them to try to justify them and then fail at that also.

You can say whatever you can say, that doesn't change the fact that you are one person that hardly understands what is being talked by some of us on the comment section.

Trend - the first meaning is "a general direction in which something is developing or changing", which means that the simple action of removing the headphone jack is a textbook example of "innovation", because it set the path followed by the market. Your brain told you that the term can only mean one thing "fashion" and you went with that: "There have been many trends that are old ideas that fell from grace and suddenly become the fashion."; that's the living prove of your functional illiteracy: you cannot understand the meaning of the words, ideas, phrases in their contexts. Now, where's the quote of the word "notch", used by Apple in an official statement, that I asked from you?

You are embarrassing yourself now Leo. You say I am "one person that hardly understands what is being talked by some of us on the comment section", yet this is itself is grammatically incorrect, do you want me, the one that "hardly understands" to tell you how? Then you define "trend" which mentions nothing about innovation at all, yet you say this proves Apple innovated by removing the headphones jack. You do not even understand what you are saying, so how the hell can you accuse anyone else of not understanding a conversation. Let me explain to yet again try to educate you a little. Let us assume the removal of the headphone jack by Apple set a trend of phones doing the same. Thus the removal is the general direction that phones subsequently took, so as per your definition, you can say Apple set or lead the trend in this area. However, your mistake is making the massive jump to say this is a "textbook example of innovation". For this to be an innovation, there has to be something innovative, a new improvement that bought tangible benefits. Actually, this was a backward step as the alternative meant users had to go to spend more to get poorer quality sound and less flexibility. You see you have tied "innovation" with "trend" when there is no direct link that equates the two. As I have said to you, records are now trending in the audio world, is that innovation? No of course not, it's old tech. Under your definition records would be an innovation, which clearly they are not. Before you start accusing others of something, make sure you have adequate knowledge of what you are talking about. I sent you that piece of information ages ago in a separate thread. You ran away after that, so why are you trying this again???? You even argued in one case that Tim Cook did not say something and when I copied and pasted from an official Apple announcement to shareholders and analysts. Instead of accepting the fact you were wrong, you said TC was!

I have only read the first paragraph and from now on I will stop reading anything you write, because not only it’s filled with irrational hate towards a company, it’s also filled with a twisted logic, found only with uneducated people. The only way I accept to communicate with those people is by showing them my contempt and that’s exactly what you will get from now on when/if you’ll have the nerve to talk to me again. Sod off!

That sort of reply just goes to show you cannot cope with someone who shows you up for what you are. Everything I wrote is true and you were the one accusing me of not understanding what people write. If you cannot backup your claims or insults then do not make them. If you continue to make make incorrect statements and claims I will comment, if you are not capable of countering them that is fine, but why make them in the first place if you cannot support them?

A huge bezel at that, why is Apple always behind on iPhones?

In 2070 we will have a chinless android phone. Haha that's coming from someone who's using both platforms , I just can't stand rubbish talk.

Mclaren - 2025 seems kinda semi realistic because with Apple you never know they were 10 years behind on Amoled displays. Georgio - 2070 is definetly stretching it :D Chinless android phones incoming in the next 3-4 years.

Not to be a party-pooper but how good was amoled 10 years ago? Apples super expensive LCD monitor s*its smartphone-amoleds.

It was still thinkker than LCD tech, still had better blacks, still consummed less battery. Yes you could say they had burn in but I had the S2, S4 and Note 4 but no burn in yet. There a reason why they used in Apples flaghsips and not in the XR.

Sharp Crystal (2014) has one bezel only. If you turn it around it is no chin. Exactly what you see on Sony 10/10+.

You're the one who talk rubbish here.. iPhone also have chin, but they hide it by making side bezel equally thick.https://twitter.com/UniverseIce/status/1093440411878678529

There's a guy here who keeps protesting that iphones have no notch. The screen is just extended. Wonder what he has to say about this.

The notch is not here to stay even though other chinese OEM's like Huawei have blatantly copied it. It same as 3D touch its not needed. Once Samsung and other Android OEM's PERFECT the fingerprint sensor built into the display then Apple should remove Face ID and go back to fingerprint sensors.

You can’t perfect fingerprint sensor, it always going to need you to touch it. Face ID can work without physical touch. It’s the best part. Sometimes you just forget that you even have it while you opening banking apps, filling passwords automaticly when surfing web. Opening whatsapp etc. Before you had to scan your finger to do those things. Now you just use apps and face ID does the rest.

You still have to line up your face with Face ID and make physical contact with the screen to unlock. With a fingerprint scanner, you just have to make contact with the screen or rear of phone. The former up to three actions, move, align swipe, the latter one, touch. So your point is invalid. Now Face ID on my Surface Pro sitting on my desk is more efficient, I just have to sit down or approach it and Windows opens automatically.

Yes, every time I swipe up on the screen after looking directly at my phone, I forget about FaceID. Also, I have to double click to complete a transaction on the power button. Then there’s having to put in my passcode every couple of days to make FaceID operative again. Do you even have a X series iPhone?

it would be better if the notch is as small as waterdrop one.
