    Anyway, glass as back/rear panel is still stupid design. I am ok on having scratched plastic rear panel rather than smooth but fragile one.

    Why? Bendable phones are going to flop. Why? If they don’t even know why?

    screw this like every single new glass that comes out is less durable than the one before. What we need is a sapphire screen like the one found on the apple watch stainless steel

    A day made of glass corning ads from 8 years ago promised a future that looks a lot different than today. Not in a good way. Very upsetting, and behind in terms of overall use, functionality, scale, and durability.

    I don't know about others on here complaining about battery, but my phone tends to last all day. What are you people doing to drain your devices so darn quickly?

    I agree with some comments in regards to battery. Foldable/bendable glass is good but I would rather go with a battery fix first. Nobody has solved the battery issue. I find myself still connecting to a cord everyday.
