Re: CES Las Vegas 2018

Wow, what a comprehensive reply!
I thought that the Samsung and Apple phones were the only one with curved edges? Looking at various photos, the LG V30, Mate 10 Pro and the OnePlus 5T don't seem to (standing by for correction in 5, 4, 3...)
I get what you mean about the size/shape/curve of the Note. I liked the look of the 7, and was thinking about the 8 but with the curve it does mean that there is less space to write on. Plus it is VERY expensive...
They don't give actual height x width, but gsmareana.com do give you the diagonal, the area and the screen to body ratio. Is that any good?
I have a glass screen protector on my G4 which currently is still in great condition (despite many drops thanks to the case!) and would want to get one for the next phone. Will have to keep an eye out to see if there are any and what the reviews are.

Announced at CES, Zagg might have created a screen protector for those curved screens.

 

You're right about those phones having flat screens, but they are still 18:9. The area and ratio on gsmarena is a help, yes.  The area is a new thing, and they seem to have added it to some earlier reviews.  I don't recall seeing it before.   Now we just need a note of curved or not Smiley Wink

 The Mate 10 is still 16:9 but I prefer the back mounted fingerprint sensor and didn't feel my Mate 9 was in need of replacement.  I really hope they keep it at that ratio for the Mate 11.

Re: CES Las Vegas 2018

Not sure if I am missing something, but the Mate 10 (Pro at least) has a rear mounted fingerprint sensor?
It does seem strange that nothing is mentioned about a curve or not.
