Google Daydream Review: Great Mobile VR Standard

Google Daydream Review: Great Mobile VR Standardmaxresdefault

The new 79$ Google Daydream View goggles works with the new Pixel series smartphones Google designed. The View head set is built on the foundation that which Google calls project Daydream. Daydream is a VR platform which was unveiled alongside the Android 7.1 Nougat update.

Today VR has come a long ways. However, the software still feels like great potential rather than reality. The View under Google’s guidance brings us very close to the reality of VR prowess we have been expecting. Google will need to appeal to consumers still deciding whether this tech will be useful to them and to the manufacturers who are still on the fence about investing into this market.

Just like Samsung’s Gear VR and Google’s cardboard headsets the View is a shell that utilizes your smartphone’s screen to access the world of VR. The View uses a one handed control method with an included remote (albeit with limited motion tracking capabilities).

Mobile VR platforms still are no match for fully decked out PC / PS4 version’s of the VR systems such as the HTC VIVE or OCULUS Rift which generally comes with room-wide tracking, fully functioning virtual hands and a huge array of tracking sensors built in.

Aside from this, it would be short sighted to try and compare mobile VR platforms to large scale VR systems tethered to powerful machines at home. The point of mobile VR is still found in its wide range of app development. It makes more sense for content creators to build VR videos for mobile handsets, and a surprising number of games are being pumped out for the mobile world of VR as well.

Googles method of accessing the tantalizing world of VR is still awesome. In regards to all Mobile VR head sets found we see The View as the best option out there with a low cost. The ergonomics of the headset is comfortable and the soft cloth skin wrapping around the headset feels fantastic. It helps it look more natural compared to looking high – tech and over the top.

Samsung Possibly Working on Bendable Smartphone

Samsung Possibly Working on Bendable Smartphone

Screen-Shot-2016-11-10-at-16.15.08

Samsung is reportedly working on a bendable smartphone or tablet device. It is already known and showcased how Samsung successfully devised a Super AMOLED display that is able to be bent physically and still retain functionality throughout. An image of the “bendable smartphone” patent has been floating around on the web for a while now and most news sites are basing this assumption off of it. Especially because of the Note 7 problem Samsung had faced everyone is expecting bigger and better things above the well received Note 7 smartphone to win back trust. A bendable screen would be a futuristic design that could capture the attention of many consumers. How plausible this is would be another matter.

It seems that Samsung will feature a secondary screen when the device is folded up and have a “semi automatic” folding mechanism added.

The rumors of the company working on foldable technology isn’t new, it has been going on for a long time and because Samsung proved that they can do it the elusive bendable smartphone is within our grasps.

Not only is Samsung the main manufacturer working on this idea but so are other major manufacturers including Apple, LG and Xiaomi.

Interestingly the trend is moving towards a bezel-less screen design while phones are becoming thinner.

Are Tablets a Dying Breed?

Are Tablets a Dying Breed?

We would be hard pressed to give an exact answer on this common question but we do see that many major manufacturers are “giving up” on this category. More specifically, we are seeing a decline in profitability due to declining interest in the tablet market. The R&D speed has slackened and manufacturers are discontinuing well known tablet models such as the Venue slates when Dell decided to put an end to tablet line ups.

The reason for declining tablet sales compared to smart phones is because people tend to hold onto their tablets a lot longer than they do with smart phones. The tablet market was young and full of questions for manufacturers. They were unsure how often consumers would “upgrade” to the newest model. The demographic behavior in this field seems to be more visible now. For many manufacturers, tablet development and efforts are actually quite underwhelming because of little returns.

Another reason why tablet’s are on their way out is because of over-saturation. Consumers are demanding less and less as there are already a ton of choices and there is only so much a tablet can actually do. This was the main reason Dell decided to end the Venue tablet’s life.

The Dell Venue 8 7000 was one of the best high end Android tablet of the time. It still is today. IT features OLED displays, and a RealSense camera. In all honesty, despite usage of tablets in multimedia senses and for other personal usages, no one really needs a tablet when phablets are in the market that can do so much more on top.

Tablets are also trailing behind iPad’s and will never catch up to the iOS ecosystem in one important aspect. App support. Both Android and Apple stores have vast numbers of apps but Android still pales compared to App optimized support and sheer number in the iOS ecosystem.

The differentiating factor is too little between a big powerful phablet phone one would shell out thousands for over time compared to a 700$ tablet device.

At this time, we see that Android Tablets are actually becoming something else now. Enter Chromebooks. Google has updated Chrome OS to support Android Apps which would allow Chromebooks with touch screen devices to become a much more functional hybrid tablet. We would eventually see 2 in 1 detachable Chromebooks coming out soon.

The Tablet market is dying over time, but this does not mean that everyone thinks they are pointless. Many have found good usage for their beloved tablets purchased recently or years ago. All in all, they have their own place but in the eyes of manufacturers there is simply not enough demand.

Galaxy S8 to Have 6.2 Inch Bezel-less Display

Galaxy S8 to Have 6.2 Inch Bezel-less Display

maxresdefault

Samsung is reportedly set to launch the GALAXY S8 “PLUS” variant in 2017. This ‘plus’ model features 6.2 inches of bezel-less displays.

Most information out there are all speculati
on based on various leaks and insider look at associated manufacturers. We are also still a few months away from any official statements Samsung has made for its S8. We have heard of a beefy AI coming and the home button disappearing along with the head phone jack.

Recently an online publication site known as “The Investor” suggested that Samsung will be releasing two versions of the S8 while the latter is an attempt to appeal to consumers who prefer the Note series.

According to sources the S8 is set to launch a 5.7 inch display model and a 6.2 inch display, both bezel-less.

Despite the screen increase, Samsung is known for ultra thin profile devices jam packed with features. Consumers should feel comforted that such a trend should continue. This means that despite the screen size increasing the dimensions of the phone should remain largely the same as the already ultra thin S7 series.

Lastly, it seems plausible that Samsung is stopping any “flat” screen variants of the GALAXY line up in 2017. As curved AMOLED display technology and bezel-less displays are becoming the trend it would be interesting to see what Samsung decides to extravagantly change and keep. We see a lot of this happening with Apple.
