Why is it "non-competitive"? I mean if you compare FulHD to 4K there is a difference, because videos and movies are slowly moving towards 4K. But if you take this oddball resolution that we chose, it has no benefits at all. You still can't watch 4K on it, it just results in blurry text.
Why? What would you use that second port for?
But Eve is a small business. They can't afford experiencing a failure with those batteries. Microsoft can just suck it up, like Samsung did with their exploding Notes, but Eve would go bankrupt.
I agree on this...
But what does this mean?
"Premium"... I hear this word a lot on this forum, but nobody has explained what it actually means in our context. To my knowledge, you can refer to a material as to "premium" when it has properties that make it actually better than other materials. Such as scratch, shock resistance, better cooling capability and so on. Alacantra is a dust magnet and that just makes it worse than, say, plastic.
Nah, that's what samsung prefers. I think most people on this forum wouldn't give a second thought about it And overall, I don't really see where this thin devices fetish comes from. Just that it's thin doesn't mean it's good. And it doesn't make it better in any way. To me personally, holding a bit thicker device is even easier. A tablet could go up to 11-12mm without any problems... If it's thicker than that, it becomes too bulky, but as long as you keep it under a certain mark there's no problem.
That's a feature on the processor. We can't choose GPU and CPU separately, unless we go with a dedicated Nvidia graphics card. There is no Y-series processor that has Iris graphics, so it's simply not possible. Unless you want a fan in the device, but then it would be in a different category.
