You have any problem with those that have such an opinion?

The true tone display. That is rich, especially using Samsung's AMOLED displays. Like Samsung's displays don't offer such a feature. Give me a break.

Also Sony has 960 fps slow mode on some of their newer smartphones.

960fps at 1080p? If it's at 1080p I'll be impressed but I am doubting it is. I don't know of any other phone that does 240fps at full 1080p. If there is, please enlighten me

The XZP does 960fps at 720p not 1080p. I would still take that over 240 at 1080 though.

As someone says below and I checked on, the 960fps is only recorded for less than 1 second. PhoneArena even had an article about it. It records like 1/5th of a second which is not even comparable to sustained 240fps

Don't be, Sony phones can only record 0.182 seconds (less than one second) at a time at 960 fps "720p" and you do so by pressing a botton while filming the video, this means that if you didn't pressed it at the exact moment when the action was happening your video is nothing but a hot mess, the second slow motion mode can only record 120fps not sure about the resolution of this one though.

In a more positive note they can shoot 4k 30fps using H.265 video format which is great saving storage.

True tone display? Do you remember the Adoptive Display with RGB light sensor and auto colour balance since Galaxy S4(2013)? which also using a AMOLED screen.

I still have my Galaxy S4 and I definitely remember that! Kudos for pointing it out to those who are getting hyped that it's an industry first in the iPhone X.

Hey Trojan if some iSheeps says that iPhone X is 1st with such a display technology, I do understand that. But the Irony is notable tech site like PA said that which is like WTF..

It's the first with true tone display. tell Samsung they should have named the technology if they wanted to be first. iPhone is also the first industry phone to have 'super retina display"... same screen has been around or years, just not given TM'd name.

I agree with you. just saying.

Agreed. I give Apple all the rest with the exception of this and the animojos things. For some reason Thought the adaptive feature setting on their Amoled screen did this already. the aninmojo thing ? Come on this is a gimmick you will use it for a couple of days and get never use it again

True tone is basically Adaptive Screen mode that has been on Samsung devices for years now.

Face ID is basically IRIS scanning with a new Apple's marketing term. I saw plenty of videos about the iPhone X, and all of them mentioned that you need to have your eyes open for the scanner to work. But I believe it was in The Verge's video, when the Apple employee was showcasing the feature to the reviewer, he mentioned that you need to open your eyes so that the sensor would scan your IRIS in order to unlock your device.

Then why it doesn't work with your eyes closed?
And where did you get your facts from, Apple's keynote? Lol

Apple said that only if you are paying attention to the phone, it will unlock.

So If you are not looking at it, it will not work. That's why faceID needs eyes open so that it knows you are looking at the phone.

And of course the security. If FaceID works with eyes closed, when you are sleeping someone could unlock your phone by bringing the phone to your face.

But with this approach that can not happen. No one could unlock your phone even if you are dead.

I know. You fandroids just can't even process that Apple Ace'd it with FaceID.

Aced it wow.. That's sloppier than the IRIS scanner on the Note 7... Just check out the videos..

yes i talked to samsung about this last week and they told me the face unlock only works with iris scan so it sees your retina and face

Which means Face ID is actually Iris scanning like on the Galaxy S8... That's nothing new at all.

What kind of article is this? SMH

Don't think that's what it means at all. Obviously there is more going on than it just scanning ur iris, it 3D maps your FACE. But I guess you can believe the troll above saying he spoke to Samsung about apples faceid tech last week and they definitely know absolutely everything about it, so wonder why they didn't do it? Hmm..

It mixes Iris scanning with 3D mapping of the face... not exactly new.

Funny part is, Apple is hiding the speed of Face ID unlock under the Animations. I mean Samsung Iris works really really fast no doubt & also it will straight away goes to homescreen.. but Face ID is like read your face wait till unlock shows on screen & then swipe the screen out WTF..

You talked to Samsung about apples faceid last week huh? Riiiiight. I don't suppose you have any proof of this? I didn't think so

Wrong! Truetone display is nothing like adaptive display. Adaptive display just change the color temperature of the display according to the TIME, but trutone display changes it according to the AMBIENT LIGHT. That's why it is much more advanced and better. Butthurt??

That's is not what adaptive display is. It adjust the color for what is being viewed on the screen and for the ambient light setting. Has nothing to do with the time.
