Glad the gaff's revlo10 raised the phone issues


About time Apple and Samsung had a reality check with a serious chinese competitor snapping at their heels. Does anyone really think (US/SK brands)  offer value for money, because they don't!  At a £1000  for a palm held singing and dancing model, someone is having a serious laugh at us all. Yes they are generally reliable in the early stages of their life but battery life has never been properly addressed. They degrade from day one and you end up looking for a charging lead during the working day.


These Tech giants could eliminate that smartphone battery drain by enforcing sleep on hungry apps when not interacting.


I often wonder how and why the Japanese with their tech expertise aren't more dominent than they are, worldwide in mobiles.

Yeah, there’s a wholly undiscovered phone market in Asia. Mainland China has really spearheaded the battle but props have to go to Taiwan and Japan for their attempts, they do have some decent phones out there, it’s just they’re not as invested in marketing their phones to the west as other phone companies are.

The phones that come out of Mainland China exploit a great market opportunity to export to the west because of lower costs of living in China and lower production costs. Apple and Samsung really do need to rethink their game, Xiaomi is now the #4 biggest phone manufacturer in the world.
