Earlier this week a Bloomberg report suggested Apple was working on – or at least considering – a curved screen iPhone. Unlike Samsung’s phones, which curve down on the sides, this theoretical iPhone would curve inwards, like a banana.

This is a great idea. Apple would be far from the first to use such a curve, but since the tech has fallen out of favor in smartphones, it’s a good time to bring it back.

Curved screens are more durable

A curved screen is less likely to scratch and more likely to survive a bad drop than a flat screen.

It’s pretty obvious when you think about it. If you set a flat screen on a table, the entire glass surface thing is at the mercy of any material that could scratch it. Even if it’s just a mild curve, only the top and bottom edges would be in contact with a flat surface. I distinctly remember that past curved devices I’ve tested were far less prone to scratches.

5 ways Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 is better than the iPhone X

  5 ways Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 is better than the iPhone X Officially, it's only day 2 of the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain. But everyone at the event and around the world already knows that the high point of the show is already behind us. Tech journalists and bloggers will spend a ton of time in the coming weeks comparing Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ to dozens of different smartphones. Some comparisons will be more useful than others, but the most important one is fairly obvious. When the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are released on March 16th, they’ll be Samsung’s best smartphones ever. So it’s only right that we spend some time comparing them to Apple’s best smartphone ever, the iPhone X.

Well technically they already have a curved screen , it’s just not a touchable screen and it’s not an OLED one either. The only reason Apple would An OLED screen, on the other hand, would add a lot to the iPhone . Better colors, better battery life, better features (like the always-on display) so a regular

A new report claims Apple's next iPhone will replace the glass LED display with curved Plastic OLED. On the surface that sounds like a bad idea because plastic, after all, scratches much easier than glass—but in this case Next year’s iPhone could sport a curved display thanks to Plastic OLED.

No risk of scratching most of the display, even when set down on concrete.

The same goes for drops; while any bad drop could shatter glass, a curved phone would be less likely to crack due to landing on some small protrusion on the ground.

Curved phones are more ergonomic

A banana-shaped iPhone would also help ensure you won’t drop your phone in the first place. The curve would fit the contours of your hand better, for one.

Go ahead and pick up your phone. Notice the big gap between your palm and the back of the device? That means that only your fingertips are really keeping a grip on your phone, wasting valuable surface area that could increase friction and make your future iPhone more secure in hand.

It also just feels nice.

The OnePlus 6 will have a notch, and here’s why

  The OnePlus 6 will have a notch, and here’s why The next OnePlus flagship phone will have a notch in its display, and above is the first official image of it, provided exclusively to The Verge.“How big a notch is always depends on your choices as a company,” said Carl Pei, the public face of OnePlus, when he met me in London last week. In his mind, the question of whether to have a notch at all is a foregone conclusion. OnePlus, like every other phone maker opting to go this design route, sees it as adding more screen real estate instead of taking anything away. “What you are essentially doing is moving the entire notification bar up, giving users more content on their screen.

A curved display could enable Apple to produce a handset with an edge-to-edge screen with practically no bezels. OLED screens differ from LED panels because their pixels are self-illuminating while LEDs are used to light an LCD screen . Recent reports from a source speaking to Nikkei Asian

It helps the software experience

A curved screen can significantly reduce the distance your thumb has to travel to reach the top of the screen.

Again, a curve naturally follows the arches of your hands, which aren’t designed to interact with a flat slab. This would make it easier to reach UI elements near the top of your screen.  Considering Apple is rumored to be working on a 6.5-inch iPhone, a curved display could go a long way towards making it more comfortable to use with one hand.

The G Flex 2 may have been ahead of its time.

There’s another small bonus: A curved screen would help FaceID recognize you when the phone is lying on a desk, as the camera would be angled towards your face. That should appease some of those who miss TouchID.

It’s more immersive

While the hype over curved TVs has gone down, curved displays can make for a more immersive viewing experience as they naturally follow your field of view. This is most effective on either extremely large displays (say, an IMAX theater), or a screen that’s very close to your eyes (like a computer monitor).

How Samsung’s New Galaxy S9 Compares to the iPhone X

  How Samsung’s New Galaxy S9 Compares to the iPhone X The Samsung flagship goes on sale just a few months after Apple’s revamped competitor, but which is better?The phone is critical for the company. Samsung needs to show it has the hardware and software chops to maintain its leadership in the Android market, while proving Apple isn’t king of smartphone design. Then there’s fending off rising Chinese competition from Huawei and reassuring investors that Vice Chairman Jay Y. Lee has the company’s future under control since his legal woes commanded global headlines.

Such screens mean higher image quality and thinner phone bodies because they don't require back lights. Apple did not immediately return CNET's request for comment. Curved iPhone 8? Apple said to be exploring OLED screens (CNET Update report). Your browser does not support the audio element.

The iPhone X does NOT have a 180 deg curved display!! That’s what Apple implied by their The renders in their advertising imply that there is a continuous curved panel folding 180 deg and That’s not accurate and would be an expensive, irrational idea as you can’t see inside the phone so why

The latter scenario also applies to phones. Now that phones commonly approach or exceed a six-inch diagonal, people are more likely to view entire episodes and even movies on them. A mild curve could go a long way towards creating a more immersive experience, especially on the rumored iPhone X Plus.

The design could also help reduce glare from sunlight when used outdoors.

Apple could do it right

Again, Apple isn’t inventing curved smartphones, but the company is rarely first. Instead, Apple tends to introduce technology others pioneered when it feels it can perfect it. That could happen with curved displays.

For reference, the Google/Samsung GalaxyNexus was one of the first phones with a curved panel, way back in 2011. LG had some of the most dramatic examples with phones like the G Flex several years ago.

But they eventually fell out of favor, in part because OLED wasn’t really mature. This was back when the technology wasn’t categorically superior to LCD and the displays were prone to ridiculous over-saturation and dramatic burn-in. Introducing a curved design just added extra complications.

iPhone SE 2 with iPhone X style notch leaks in video

  iPhone SE 2 with iPhone X style notch leaks in video Apple looks set to reveal a new iPhone SE 2 soon which will bring features from the top-end iPhone X to an affordable handset. The video, leaked on Mac Otakara, shows off what is apparently the new iPhone SE 2 handset. It looks a lot like a perfect cross between an iPhone X and an iPhone SE.

Times are different now. Apple, which always favored LCD, moved onto OLED with the iPhone X, and is rumored to be working on its own display technology.

It would also give Apple a design advantage. While the notch was a unique detail at first, it’s already become routine. As hard as it might be to divorce the image of an iPhone from that of a flat slab, lets not forget Apple used to make computers that looked like this. Now that bezel-less phones have been achieved, I’m ready to move onto bolder designs.

A concave iPhone could help Apple stay ahead of the curve. Pun intended.

Let’s predict the Gridiron Champions video game’s fake college football team names .
Ever since the Ed O’Bannon ruling, college football fans have had to deal with the fact that a fully licensed college football video game is probably not going to happen anytime soon (and even if it did, they should want the players to be compensated for their likenesses). Desperate for anything resembling a college football game, fans were overjoyed to hear IMackulate Vision Gaming is creating a college football video game called “Gridiron Champions,” set to launch for PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2020.
