Curve Benefits

Galaxy Round

Last week, Samsung gave birth to the rumored smartphone with a curved OLED display, named after Galaxy Round.

Its features are almost the same to its sibling, Galaxy Note 3’s, including the 5.7-inch 1080p screen, but their similarities ends at the new ‘Round Interaction’: a new feature that allows the user to look at information such as missed calls, battery usage, and the date and time by tilting it on a flat surface when the screen is locked. It also has a slightly lighter weight (154g) and a 2800mAh battery.

The new features are remarkable, but fail to catch my eye. It doesn’t scream wow to me at all because the difference between Galaxy Round and other Galaxy series models aren’t big, just like the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 5S.

There are often new phones released in the market; and perhaps we may have heard the comments our friends made about the slight difference between different models. On the pro side, these corporations do create competitions as well as drives for lifestyle innovations, our quality of life has undoubtedly enhanced from time to time; but from the customer’s point of view, it’s unworthy for renewing our phone models with that amount of value they list in the market, when changes aren’t too significant.

It would be bullshit for me to say that there are a lot more to come in the future.
