It seems that the makers of Android phones from a year ago until now more than any other year the appearance and capabilities of iPhones in making products They have used that, among these cases, we can mention the design of the bed and the Magnet magnetic charger. But apparently these similarities are going to be more and more this year.
This article also includes the personal opinion of the source author and may all He did not agree.
Although Apple also tried to design the iPhone in terms of features, design, and in general many other things somewhat similar to some Android phones, but in this article We are going to look at the opposite of this issue, which is the similarity of Android phones to the iPhone. As mentioned, the makers of Android phones (some of them) tried to design their phones with flat corners, which we see in the iPhone 12 and 13. But it seems that this year the number of phones that are going to be marketed with such a design is increasing.
The first Android phone that was designed and launched with flat corners was the Huawei Nova 8SE, which by looking at its corners , The user was fully aware of the familiar design of this phone. In fact, the iPhone 12K launched in 2020 uses exactly the same design. The next phone was the Moto Edge 20, followed by the Renault 6 5G, which took advantage of the flat corners.
Of course, the number of these phones is not over. In fact, it is better to say that it has just begun. Xiaomi also launched its new mid-range phones with the same design, including the Redmi Note 11, which will most likely be one of the most popular phones of the year. Produced as a successor to the Renault 6 5G, the Oppo Reno 7, the N20 5G Rolling OnePlus, and the GT 2 Pro Rolley are among the same products that are similar in design to the corners.
Unknown brands, whose names you may or may not have heard, also tended to this design. Among these companies, we can mention Techno, which used this design in making the Common 18 Premiere. Of course, we should not just refer to Chinese companies as copiers, because before that, the Japanese company Sharp used such a design in the production of Aquos Wish.
Samsung also has a good middle ground with this design
But among these companies, the name of a large company like Samsung also stands out. In fact, you may not realize it because the Korean company often designs its phones with curved corners, and this is one of the strengths of the company's phones (personally). But the company also has a flat-bottomed phone in its product portfolio, which also happens to be its recent flagship.
We're talking about the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The product was launched as an affordable Samsung clamshell phone and was able to attract the positive feedback of many Korean and international users. This phone, too, if you look closely, you can see that it has relatively flat corners. Of course, there may still be a curvature, but if you compare it to the previous generation or to other Samsung phones in general, you can see how much flatter the frame is.
But that seems to be the whole story. is not. Because the Korean company wants to produce and market the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus, which are also the expected flagships, with such a design. Of course, although the galaxies expected from the rear are quite similar to their previous generation, the Galaxy S21 series, when you look at them from the corners, you will notice that the frame of these phones looks flatter. Of course, the basis of our claim regarding the Galaxy S22 series is the images that have already been released from this series, which we even saw in a video. Renders released by well-known whistleblowers also show that the similarity of the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus in terms of flatness to iPhones is not rumored and is apparently set to become a reality. Of course, it should be noted that Samsung has not completely flattened the frame design, but its curvature has been significantly reduced compared to the previous generation.
All these examples remind us of this. Apparently, more Android phones are going to be designed to look similar to iPhones. Apart from Samsung, Vivo, which is one of the most famous Chinese brands in the field of making Android phones, apparently is working on making a phone that is very similar to the iPhone 14 Pro. Of course, since neither of these two phones has been officially unveiled, you can not say for sure that this claim is true, but according to what has been published so far, apparently this Vivo phone, which we do not even know about its definitive release to the market. It's supposed to be similar to the iPhone that Apple will unveil in September this year. Inspired by Galaxy and iPhones
If you have been following the news of phone design comparisons Have you dealt with a similar issue as to which design is more appropriate for the phone; Curved corners or flat corners. Once again, we're going to look at these two different design trends in the phone.
Since this is more about the design, that's why taste comes first. We are not talking about the quality of construction anymore, so that even if taste is involved in choosing it, more quality will win. We have no winners or losers here. It just depends on the user experience which way the user is heading. Some prefer curved corners for more beauty, while others prefer flat corners for easier grip. Of course, these two are not the only strengths of these two designs, and we will discuss this later.
Flat corner design is a new kind of phone, and therefore many people because They also like the variety. Just like the old denim shirts that were once considered a beautiful and attractive fashion with jeans, this is exactly the design of smartphones. Although even older designs may be better, it remains to be seen where fashion will move. In the world of fashion, it also happens that one brand copies from another brand.
This is also normal in smartphones and is not a problem at all. If this was to be assumed to be a problem, then after the first Samsung Note phone, no other phone should be marketed with a large screen, because in fact, all of them are somehow copied from the Galaxy Note. So when it comes to copying in the world of smartphones, one should not take a stand immediately because it is not a bad thing to look at it that way.
A few years ago, Samsung was the first company to design the curved corners of the phone. Bob Kurd and other companies used the same design for their phones, following in the footsteps of the Korean company. This is a trend, but now he is retiring because of Apple. Of course, Apple also designs flat screens for its handsets, while Samsung does not like this design for its powerful flagships. Google, OnePlus, and many Android phone companies also tend to design their flagship screens as opposed to curved iPhones to enhance the beauty of the phone and give the user a better feel.
The user shakes hands when the screen of their phone is curved. Some companies, such as Huawei, have increased the curvature of the P40 Pro so much that it has been given the specific name of 3D Curve, which means three-dimensional curvature. Of course, this phone was curved not only from the side but also from the bottom and top to design a completely cornerless product. The P40 Pro was one of the best phones that unfortunately lost its value due to heavy sanctions from Google, but there was a lot of innovation in it.
Curved display in front of the bed; Examining Strengths and Weaknesses
As mentioned above, whether a phone has flat corners or Having a curve does not necessarily make it superior to other phones. This is more related to the appearance of the phone, and naturally when it comes to appearance it is quite a matter of taste that plays a role in choosing between the two. But in general, there are a number of strengths and weaknesses for both types of panels, which we will discuss below.
Curved displays have a number of significant advantages over flat models, such as these can be easily Navigating gestures such as swiping up and down and back were mentioned because it has always been easier to perform these gestures on curved displays.
But flat screens seem to have a greater and more meaningful advantage. For example, the palm of the hand no longer touches the corners by mistake, especially when there is an application in the corner of the screen. Of course, the ability to not react to the palm of the hand in today's curved phones is more quality and accuracy than the time of the Galaxy Note Edge and S7, but it is still not perfect. The Pixel 6 Pro, for example, performs well, but the Huawei P30 Pro has a hard time with that. It is important. For example, when you try to copy a text that starts on the left or right side of the screen, you will have problems and you will have to try several times to be able to copy the entire text. Because the corner of the screen thinks you are touching it with the palm of your hand and therefore does not accept or react to the touch.
They act more safely because in this case the frame is damaged and not the display, if it is damaged, the whole front panel must be replaced. Of course, when you place the bezel on the phone, it gets a little harder to work with when the display is flat and the bezel is higher than the corners.
The palm of the hand is pressed, but phones with curved frames are much softer and do not put any pressure on the palm or foot when the phone is in the pocket. Therefore, it seems that the phone with a flat screen but curved corners is the best type of design that we saw in the iPhone 11.
Finally; Phone under or curved?
We seem to have a hard time answering this question, why? There is no right or wrong to deal with it. It can not be said 100% that phones with flat corners are better than models with curved corners, and vice versa. What is certain is that Apple used a flat design for the iPhone, and the makers of Android phones followed suit.
Now Samsung, OnePlus, Google, and Xiaomi have designed their products with flatter corners than before. they do. The same design that the American company has planned for its new phones. We do not know what will happen in the future, but for now it seems that in the coming years all phones will benefit from such a design. Of course, if Apple does not decide to re-design the curves of the corners. Be more comfortable. It's not just a matter of aesthetics or just being practical, but companies should strive to produce products that perform well in all areas.
phones with flat or slightly curved screens and curved corners seem to have the best design overall. What do you think, though? What kind of design do you think is best for smartphones?
