    New Company? Dual SIM? The rest sound quite nice actually. Apart from the 7,6mm thin. Make it 9mm and add a decent battery ffs….

      Race to the bottom, surprised people tolerate less than half a day charge routine for the sake of few millimeter.

      I second that too. I hate the total idea of a few mm and so low battery life.

      I 100% fully agree with you both. I really don’t think making it thinner makes a phone feel more highend or better made. The only thing I notice is that I need to charge the battery each day and that is unacceptable.

      I just dont understand how anybody could want a super highend phone that needs charging midday already. Must be the same principle like with fast cars like Lamborghini or similar.

      Yet bearing that in mind there is a big difference. With a Lambo, you take it for a spin, gas it up and ride for 150km with that filling. Thats fine. but here is where the difference to the smartphone comes. Your smartphone is basic item of use (all day every day basically). Which means you will use it for rather normal things 95% of the time (check mails, surf, call, text) and only use it’s highend features 5% of the time (Gaming, camera, watch a HD movie with your girl on a long train ride).

      So ergo this would be like using the Lambo for driving to work every day, when one way you need to go 80km. You would not do that and affording a Lambo (you would probably not go to work anymore in general) you would quickly get a small economic (normal) car to drive to work and still take your crazy gas guzzeling spins on weekends or after work (for fun so to say).

      So there is a big difference between smartphones and super cars in they way we approach it every day. Meaning all the people comparing a super highend phone which needs charging after 6 hours use to a super sports car need to rethink the math.

      Ergo thinner phone = super stupid, if that means battery life suffers (which in 99% of the cases it does).
