Android needs their iTunes equivalent and airdrop equivalent fast if portless phones become a thing. Fast data transfer standard wirelessly. There are solutions but none native at a system level. Pushing firmware and stuff like that must be a real pain.

iTunes? What advantages does iTunes have over similar services? Pushing firmware via plugging in? Who does that anymore? Its 2019 ffs... And I already have casting abilities so no concerns there either.

Only if it is not like iTunes at all! I have all Apple stuff, but I avoid iTunes like the plague.

they should hide the main camera on back too, using pop-up style, so the body would flat totally

Microphone holes are still there.. Btw, wtf with that camera bump? if they want to make it looks as simple monolith they should make it perfecly flat.

Not that impressed with this one. Let's see if Vivo can one up this one. It's more style over substance but I do love oems trying new things.

Eh, nah. I want my buttons, I want my jacks and ports, I want my physical SIM. Ideally, a removable battery as well. Also, it's not even holeless, there's still the mic hole.
