Not at all true, sony smart phones are thin and boasts one of the best batteries out

I put an aftermarket 6800mAh battery on my old S4 and its now usable for 2 solid days of use per charge.
Sure it comes with a custom rear case that maks the phone look twice as thick, but dat battery endurance tho

And if they were a little bit thinker than it was be even better, and this is coming for a guy was a z2. I use a cover cause its already way to thin



O no.. these mini computers are here to stay..i have no doubt we'll dock these babies to a screen and keyboard and it will become your workstation (for non heavy stuff)

The market is just maturing.. we are investing too much money and time into it so we need to take fully advantage of them.. stuff like Geotag Advertising; walk by a Starbuck and it shows a discount for your favorite drink.. we wouldn't be able to fully develop this if mobile phones would change again in the next 8 years..



 

Face the future.. Gamecenter ID: nikkom_nl (oh no he didn't!!) 

Once rollable/foldable screens become available we'll be seeing revolution in phone designs - I've been waiting for phone/slide out tablet combo ever since I first saw certain prototype tech back in 2009 - can't find link, and though it was black/white screen I was excited for possibilities.

I used to do all kinds of things with my smartphone when I first got one years and years ago. Now i could care less. Its used basically as a phone now. I could care less for the apps when even the tv has them now.

Buy a Sony Z2

I can get through 3 days occasionally, but 2 days of moderate use

Even better: a Z3 compact

True. I only said the Z2 because it's the phone I have. If I was buying one now, it would be the Z3 probably. I don't think I can lose an inch of screen!

To be honest though the personal computer interface of a screen + keyboard + mouse largely remained the same for about 25-30 years and it's still a predominant interface especially in the workplace.

So maybe the smartphone interface will remain largely the same. It just works well and there isn't a huge reason to change it.

I think the biggest change will eventually be the voice stuff, once Siri and what not gets even better then it maybe more possible to interface fully with the phone just with voice.

I love Siri and other voice programs to function fully offline one day. So you don't run into pausing and errors during the voice check.

Yeah so? If they where an inch thicker. We could potentionally have 6-8 hours. My I-BLASON backup battery/case is nearly that size. And doubles the phone to 8 hours. Imagine if the main phone was that thick, PLUS the backup battery. All day use. There's no real issue of a phone that thick for your pocket or hands. And nowhere near the size of an original Gameboy.



note 4 user....

okay with the battery liufe (maybe beause it is new)
fast charge is awesome....

i got the unlimited 4g LTE which i think the best thing ever!

what i want:
sturdier phone (nokia provided this! but still not jumping for a windows phone)
cheaper unlimited fast internet
and nintendo games....

i will buy a nintendo phone if they ever release one....



 

The thing that discouraged me was when I made the jump from Galaxy S2 to Galaxy S5, I skipped the SIII and SIV, and yet when I got my new S5 other then beeing water resistant and much bigger screen it's basically the exact same phone. I don't care whats in it I gained a little memory, cameras a little better, the battery is likey much bigger but the phone performed the same as my S2.
