10 Reasons Why People Don’t Reach Their Goals and Some Quick Fix

Reach your goal
With everything that happens around us, it is sometimes difficult to reach our goals. 
This is compounded if you have any of the reasons on the list below.
Luckily, in addition to the top 10 reasons why people don’t reach their goals, I’ve included a quick fix for each of them. So let’s get to it.

1. Creating Vague Goals
When you don’t know where you are going, it is really hard to get there. Many people set themselves up for failure when they set goals that are unclear. “I want to lose weight” sounds like a great goal but the people who set this kindof goal will never reach it. It is not because the people are not motivated or
disciplined but because the goal is too general. Do you want to lose 5 lbs or 50 lbs?

Quick Fix: Set SMART goals by being Specific, making sure they are Measurable, Achievable and Realistic, and last but not least — give yourself a Time deadline.

2. Lacking a Higher Purpose
Goals can be set on any topic imaginable but if you don’t have a higher purpose, it makes it is easy to give up once the initial motivation and excitement wears off. Understanding how your goal is relevant to you allows you to persevere even when the going gets tough.

Quick Fix: When setting your SMART goal, ask yourself how the goal is relevant to your life and what you want to achieve.

3. Procrastinating
Even when you have SMART goals that are relevant to your purpose, if you don’t get started, you’ll never achieve your goal. One of the most dangerous phrases is “I’ll do it later.”

Quick Fix: Make sure the goal has been broken down into manageable pieces
and then start right away.
4. Not Taking Responsibility
Things will go wrong. That’s a fact of life. When something comes up and you don’t achieve your goal, who do you blame? Your boss who kept you at work late so you couldn’t work on your book or maybe the horrible weather that stopped you from going to the gym. If it’s not your fault, there is nothing you can do, right?

Quick Fix: Own up to not reaching your goals. When you take responsibility,
you’ll become resourceful knowing that you have control over the attainment
of your goals.
5. Listening to People Who Discourage You
When you go for your goals, especially the big ones that really count and fit in with your purpose in life, it is inevitable that people will discourage you.
There are many reasons for this: concern, jealousy, ignorance, etc. How many goals have already been given up on because other people decided they were not worth pursuing?

Quick Fix: This one is easy. As long as you know the purpose for your goal, ignore the naysayers. You can take what they are saying into consideration but make sure you make the final choice.

6. Starting Too Many Projects
I’m a starter. That sounds like a good thing but not when you start too many things, you don’t end up finishing many of them. This usually stems from the fear of missing out (FOMO) or being someone who has many ideas.

Quick Fix: Understand that you have a limited amount of time and that you can’t do everything. To deal with FOMO, realize that by not finishing, you are missing out on all the opportunities that open up when you finish the projects you are working on.

7. Being Negative
If you think you’re not going to make it, then you’re probably not going to make it. If you don’t believe you’re going to reach your goal, then when you fail, it is expected which makes it easy to stop trying. When you are optimisticand a setback occurs, you focus your energy on finding solutions because you truly believe there is one.

Quick Fix: Consider the idea that optimism and pessimism are both expectations of the future. Each are equally likely to be true but which belief will help you lead a happier more fulfilled life? Instead of wasting your energy on complaining, spend that energy on learning.

8. Being Selfish
There are people out there that think it is silly to help others. They believe in
taking and not giving. They are misers with their time, money and knowledge
and are only interested in opportunities where they stand to benefit. Most big
goals require the help of others and it is very difficult to help people who only
care about taking.
Quick Fix: Serve others first. Always look for ways to add value to other
people.
9. Surrounding Yourself with People Who Don’t Reach Their Goals
You are who you associate with. This may be hard to swallow for some people and there are always exceptions to the rule but for the most part, we act in accordance with the people around us. This comes from the strong ad natural desire to belong and to be accepted (think of all the dumb things you did in high school just to fit in).

Quick Fix: Associate with people who always reach their goals.

10. Watching Too Much TV
Not all TV is bad but if you are watching TV then most likely you are not doing anything to move one step closer to your goal. The problem with TV these days is that it is captivating. There are programs for all interests and hobbies and the shows keep getting better and better. Those who watch a lot of TV usually don’t reach their goals and perhaps people watch TV because they don’t have any goals.

Quick Fix: Shut off the TV. Cancel the cable. Pick up a book that will help you move one step closer to your goal.

Latest Review: Sony VAIO Z Flip Review


Whenever Sony releases a new VAIO laptop, we pay close attention, and typically with good reason. The company is well-known for creating high-end laptops that are typically well-designed and especially pleasing to the eye. Does their newest line, the Sony VAIO Z, live up to the Sony name?

Well check out our full review on the Sony VAIO Z Flip

Price: $2,379
Availability: Yes

What we Like
Gorgeous design
Incredibly lightweight
Ultra-fast CPU

What We Did Not
Wonky plug design
Uncomfortable to hold in tablet mode

Sony VAIO Z Flip Specifications

  • Processor:    Intel Core i7-6567U, 3.30GHz
  • RAM:          16GB
  • Storage Space:       512GB SSD
  • Display Size:      13.3"
  • Touchscreen:     YES
  • Graphics Card:    Intel Iris Graphics 540 4GB Mem
  • Battery Life:    11 hr and 15 min
  • Display Resolution:    2560x1440
  • Price:      $2,379.00

Design

When it comes to business class laptops, one of the most important elements when owning one is its design. After all, what's the point of having a high-end laptop when not connected to produce the aura in it?

Fortunately, the Sony VAIO Z flip oozes style with its sleek design. It is sure an impressive laptop to behold, especially when it is opened and the keys are illuminated. The back of the screen sports a minimalist design that has a small logo at the bottom (which I will also note that the VAIO brand has a well-designed logo). It has a slim design, and as a whole package, the VAIO is an impressive-looking business laptop.

Software


While exterior design is important, it is also important to have a great operating system and software to help you get the job done.

With the VAIO Z, there is no bloatware or annoying pre-installed programs that you are forced to use. Instead, you get a clean install of Windows 10 64-bit operating system.

With all the software that Sony makes, you would expect them to prepackage their programs to force feed them to you. Fortunately, that is not the case with the VAIO Z, and you are given a blank canvas to create your own masterful suite of software.

Hardware

As far as what's under the hood, the VAIO Z does sports impressive specs, including a best-in-class 6th generation Intel Core i7-6567U (4MB Cache, 3.30GHz out of the box). It also comes with 16GB1866MHz LPDDR3 RAM and a 512GB PCIe SSD zippy. The laptop comes with a stylus that is perfect for notes and other applications.

The keyboard has a great feel to it, and it has a smudge-free design. It is also impressive-looking as I mentioned above, especially when illuminated. Even with the laptop small size, the keyboard never feels cramped, and typing is comfortable.

The trackpad does not feel grainy like some trackpads can sometimes, and it has a pretty decent size with access to approximately 1/3 of the space at the bottom of the ultrabook.

It comes with a SuperSpeed ​​USB 3.0 port with charger, another SuperSpeed ​​USB 3.0 without charge, an HDMI port and a port for headphones and microphone.

Possibly its most disappointing aspect, however, is the awfully-designed AC plug that is used with it. Instead of a reliable connection that moves with you, the laptop’s plug frequently moves out of place and disconnects at the slightest movement. It is not a good fit as AC plugs should be, and you can literally wiggle the plug into the port rather easily.

Performance

It would be hard to knock on the performance of the VAIO Z, as it is surprisingly powerful for its size.

In our Geekbench 3 tests, it scored 3,549 for single-core and 7513 for multi-core, both of which are impressive numbers

Battery

VAIO Z's battery life is impressive for the specs that you get. The battery lasts for 9 hours and 30 minutes on a full charge and a moderate use, and 11 hours at completely idle. That means the VAIO Z is ideal for business and to take to work, as you will not have to worry about lugging around the plug with it.

Display

The VAIO Z has an impressive sharp display thanks to WQHD technology that enhances visual experience with sharper lines, vivid colors and rich detail. Videos were crisp and popped off the screen nicely.

Of course, it also has a touchscreen and you'll soon find yourself using the screen to surf the web and scroll instead of clicking with a mouse. Thanks to our extensive use of smartphones, using the screen to navigate feels natural, and it is a function that would be missed if you ever downgrade to a non-touchscreen laptop.

Conclusion

There is no denying that the Sony Vaio Z is drop dead sexy, and that gives a high-end business look. And, it's definitely a powerhouse ultrabook that can get the job done.

It is incredibly light, and it has a nice design to the screen. The fact that it has a well-lit keyboard also earns some bonus points.

iPhone 7 Rumors: Dual SIM Support, Edge-To-Edge Display And More

The upcoming iPhone 7 has been in the rumor mills quite a lot lately and more details about the device has surfaced over the last few weeks. As much as Apple keeps a tight lid on its next flagship, leaks and rumors have found their way to the internet. While some of these sound plausible, others are just absurd and totally unbelievable.

Edge-To-Edge Display


This is long overdue and Apple is expected to have a bezel-less display on the iPhone 7. There have been rumors surrounding this. Some believe the next device won’t have this, but the 2017 iPhone 7. Whatever the case may be, we’re very likely to see an edge-to-edge display on the iPhone pretty soon.

Rumors surrounding this also suggests Apple plans to introduce a flexible OLED screen in 2017 and some of these will be supplied by Samsung.

Dual-SIM support

This is probably the most absurd rumor we’ve heard but the next iPhone is said to support dual SIM. Apple isn’t known for this and it is most unlikely this will happen. Then again, nobody knew the company would introduce a 5.5″ device in 2014 when it had earlier criticized smartphones with big screens.


Rock Fix, a smartphone repair shop in China posted some images of components alleged to be for the iPhone 7. This suggested the dual-SIM support and a 256GB variant.

If this is eventually introduced, it may only be available in markets like Asia and Africa.

Dual-camera setup on the iPhone 7 Plus


This has been in the news for a while and there are leaked components to support this. Apple will likely have a dual-camera setup on the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus. As seen on devices like Huawei Mate 9, this will improve image quality and produce DSLR-like photos.


The leaked camera module picture also suggests this.

Headphone jack is still present

Contrary to rumors we previously heard that Apple is going to get rid of the 3.5mm earphone jack, recent leaks suggests that this is still there after all.

Production started

According to reports, production has started for the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 at Pegatron factory according to renowned leakster @onleaks. However, the same can’t be said for the bigger iPhone 7 Plus, but Apple may be producing this at another location.

Get Airtel 4GB Data + Extra N1000 Free Airtime For N1000

Browsing tweaks are something very rare at this time, but only those who cannot sacrifice a small amount of money for the best Internet data plans lack behind this day. I know you still blend with the Airtel Bis Plan of 3GB For 1k on your Android phones and PC, but what if I tell you that you can still use the same N1000 to 4GB of data plus additional free N1000 airtime to make calls?
Yes, it's possible, but you have to study this report very well, not just jump straight to the dialing USSD code. Below is the procedure to get it done.

To activate Airtel 4GB For N1,000

  1. Get a new Airtel SIM card or older, place it in an MTK Android device. Make sure the SIM card is registered.
  2. Recharge N1,000 on your Airtel SIM card using the USSD code *555*Card Pin#
  3. You will be credited with 1GB worth of Internet data and N1,000 bonus airtime for Airtel to Airtel calls. You can check your balance and bonus information by dialing the USSD code *556#.
  4. Now dial this USSD code *431# to subscribe to the Airtel 3GB plan for N1000, remember it is the BIS plan that works on Android devices tweaking via IMEI. 
  5. Tweaks your Android phone IMEI with this Blackberry 10 IMEI below: => 356760051192***
  6. You get 3GB data in some device, and sometimes you would see an error message.
  7. Just ignore the message, your N1000 will be deducted, and you will be credited with the 3gb worth of Internet data. Check your new data balance by dialing *140#.
Now, you have a total of 4GB worth of data plus 1k free airtime with just N1000 Even if you do not change your IMEI, the first 1GB data given to you will work on your device, but if you want to use the 3GB data That You subscribed for, you will have to tweak your IMEI to that of a BB10 device IMEI.

NOTE: This package works perfectly on New and Old Airtel SIMs. SIMs That are being used on MTK Android devices, but if you are using a non-MTK device with an old Airtel SIM, you will only be Eligible for 3GB With That N1000 subscription. That Means you need an MTK Android device if you want the method to work for you, and if your old sim does not work, you still have nothing to lose as you will still be given 3GB worth of data for 1k.

Hope this info helps! Feel free to share this post with your friends using the Share / Like buttons. Ask your question using the comment box below.

Latest: LG G5 Review

Read our review of the LG G5 Android smartphone to everything you need to know to learn.

The smartphone market was somewhat taken aback this year by the new flagship of LG, the LG G5, which is quite a departure from what we've known to the series to be. That's not always a bad thing; Change can be good. But often the question arises: Is this the right direction? And that is certainly the case with the G5.

An all-metal build is new territory for the Korean manufacturer. Despite that, and for better or worse, SC refuses to let to let the removable battery. Yes, this is the only metal built smartphone that allows the user to change batteries and go from 0 to 100% in a few seconds, via a smart eject state slot design. Let's look at our LG G5 review as this new approach hits the nail on the head, or as LG has to take it back to the drawing board.

Overview

Price: $624
Availability: Yes
Model: G5

WHY IT IS A TOP PICK: Unique design with metallic eject-able battery and wide angle camera.

What we liked:
LG's persistence to maintain a removable battery, despite the move to premium
Camera user has flexibility between standard or wide angle lenses
Final design opens doors to smart accessory add-ons

What we don't:
A 0.2 "smaller screen in almost the same phone form-factor as the G4
Although metal-built, the surface does not feel premium like it should.
LG user interface (UI) is fast, but has questionable changes (i.e., the removal of the drawer app)

LG G5 Specification


  • Display: 5.3" IPS LCD, QHD (2560x1440 pixels)
  • Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (quad-core, 2.15 GHz)
  • Memory: 4GB of RAM
  • Storage: 32GB internal and up to 200GB microSD expansion
  • Rear Camera: 16MP (f/1.8) and 8MP (f/2.4, wide angle), OIS, laser AF
  • Front Camera: 8MP, f/2.0
  • Battery: 2,800 mAh (removable)
  • Software: Android 6.0.1 with UX 5.0 user interface
  • Colors: Silver, Titan, Gold, Pink
  • Price: $624

Design

LG entirely new design includes the G5 in metal, with a smooth matte finish.

The LG G5's design / build is nothing like its predecessor, whatsoever. This is definitely what we call an overhaul. The drive behind this change was the initiative of the industry premium smartphone materials. LG has a place as the cream of the crop, and it could no longer allow competitors seem to have the upper hand.


The G5’s uni-body metal design is pretty basic. The back cover looks like just a sheet of metal, with no interruption (aside from the camera modules and fingerprint scanner). Typically on metal builds, there are plastic antenna lines that cut through. Not so here. What LG has done instead is ran the antennas how they pleased, then covered it all with a uniform metallic paint primer finish (matte).

That approach makes for a nice, clean look, but it impugns on the premium feel. In my opinion, it doesn’t feel too far from plastic, which kind of defeats the purpose. However, it does feel sturdier and more rigid than last year’s G4.
The rounded sides make for a secure grip and clean look. The front glass slightly slopes at the top into the frame.

The sides are also tidy. They’re rounded and wrap around to the front glass very cleanly. I quite enjoyed the phone’s handling; your fingers wrap around the rounded sides for a nice grip. However, where the back cover and sides meet could’ve been machined a bit more smoothly. The edge is hard and a little sharp to the touch, but at least it gives off a sleek shine.



The top of the phone is fairly bare, except for the 
3.5mm headphone jack, IR blaster, and microphone.             The bottom holds the single speaker and brand new USB                                                                                                                   Type-C port. The module is ejected by the button on the side. 

When you move your eyes towards the bottom of the phone, you’ll notice a peculiar seam. It’s not present because of design laziness, this is where the bottom can pull apart from the chassis. There’s a covert button on the left side of the phone, towards the bottom, that releases the module.

When you press the eject button, the module             You must pull firmly to detach the battery from disengages and the battery slides out.              the module. To reinstall, line up the two arrows.

The core purpose behind this feature is to maintain battery swappability, but there’s more than meets the eye here. It opens the doors to add-ons that can expand the G5’s functionality. Our friends at Verizon were kind enough to send us one of these modules – the Cam Plus.
The Cam Plus module is one of the add-ons that you can buy right now.

It works simply by swapping the battery into the module and sliding it back in the phone’s slot. In particular, the Cam Plus adds physical camera controls to the G5’s camera experience. It includes a zoom wheel and shutter button. What’s more, it has it’s own battery pack, that boosts the total battery capacity to 4,000 mAh (from the phone’s stock 2800 mAh) battery. If you often use your phone for pics/videos, you’ll love this accessory.
From left to right, the Cam Plus module includes a                 The Cam Plus module adds a little bull on the bottom, partly record button, shutter button (two-stage for                  because it adds extra battery capacity.
focus), wheel zoom, and on/off switch.

On another module, LG partnered with Bang & Olufsen (high-end audio manufacturer) to make a HiFi 32-bit DAC (digital-to-analog converter) add-on, for higher quality tunes on headphones. But unfortunately, this one hasn’t made its way state-side yet.

Currently, these are the only two modules we know about, which poses the concern: How useful will this feature be? Of course, new concepts need to start somewhere, and LG has opened the design up to third-party manufacturers. We just don’t know how many will take them up on it, or when more modules will come out.

Performance

Like its flagship competitors, the G5 also packs Qualcomm’s latest and greatest chipset, the Snapdragon 820. It’s a sure bet that any phone powered by this beast will be blistering fast, and the G5 is no exception. The software’s response is super snappy across the board. You can multitask and push visuals all you want, the G5 plows through tasks and asks for more.

I’m not sure if it’s fast processing or software refinement (or both), but the software is much smoother than LG’s previous phones. It’s almost as fluid as stock Android, which deserves an applaud. Samsung newest flagships are also powered by Qualcomm’s latest, but they still bear the occasional stutter/hiccup.
The Snapdragon 820 is Qualcomm’s latest top-end chipset (quad-core).

The performance of the fingerprint scanner was also well done. It also serves as the power button, but you don’t need to press it before it scans. Just lay your finger on it and the phone will turn on and unlock. Alternatively, you can double tap to wake or sleep the phone.
LG rear-mounted power button doubles up as a fingerprint scanner. The volume rocker has now been moved to the side (whereas previous iterations had it on the back as well).

External audio is once again powered by a mono, bottom-firing speaker. It can keep up with any other smartphones that follow suit (Galaxy, iPhone, etc.), but can’t hold a candle to front-facing speakers. Also on the bottom, I’d like to point out that LG keeps up with the times and incorporates the latest USB Type-C standard. So you’re able to insert the connector any which way, and it also packs Quick Charge 3.0 (about 40% more efficient than QC 2.0). This one-ups the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, which still have microUSB and QC 2.0.

Display

Despite rumors of LG adopting AMOLED technology for the G5’s screen, we instead have an IPS LCD panel once again. But don’t fret, it’s a fine display. Colors are more vibrant than before and there’s great contrast. The G5 continues to use a QHD resolution, so images are still super sharp. But some folks may be bothered that LG dropped the screen size from 5.5″ in the last two flagships to 5.3″.
The G5’s IPS LCD display is slightly smaller than before (at 5.3″) but is more brilliant than ever.

My biggest gripe is the brightness. The flagship arena puts up stiff competition these days, so you really need to be on your game. The max brightness on the G5 falls short in my opinion; I’m often left wishing it would go about 25% brighter. It can be a struggle to see the screen outdoors. I have a Galaxy S7 Edge on-hand and its screen wipes the floors with the G5 in this respect.
In a max brightness comparison between the Galaxy S7 Edge (left) and LG G5 (right), Samsung is the clear winner.

Camera

LG magic slot is not the only unique feature on the G5. If you haven’t noticed, there’s something interesting on the back – dual cameras.
The G5 packs two different lenses, with a standard 75 deg viewing angle (left) and wide 135 deg (right).

No, 3D recording isn’t making a comeback. The purpose here is to give the user flexibility over the field of view. One of the cameras is at a standard angle and the other is much wider. This does come as an expense to megapixel count, though. The standard module is 16MP while the wide-angle is 8MP.

Battery

LG had to drop the battery’s capacity slightly to execute the new design. We’re looking at a 2,800 mAh battery versus 3,000 mAh on the G4 last year. It’s never good when battery capacity has to drop (battery life one of the most important factors in smartphones), but the G5 manages. Unless you’re a hardcore user, you should get through a day before having to run to an outlet. The battery life does lean dangerously to that borderline, though.

My testing consisted of typical apps, like Chrome, Google Maps, email, Twitter, Pandora, camera, and Feedly, between T-Mobile’s network and WiFi. I was pretty satisfied by LG’s minimal standby drain, this is mainly what kept the phone lasting.

One could justify the smaller battery with the swappability feature, but I imagine that some folks may just prefer a large battery instead.

Software

As expected, we’re looking at the latest version of Android, 6.0.1 (Marshmallow). Albeit, LG likes to throw on top its own custom UI. It’s dubbed “UX” and the G5 brings it up to version 5.0.

Compared to UX 4.0, we have some streamlined aesthetics and simplified functions. I feel like the experience is refined and much more unified than before. For instance, you’ll see the same minimalistic styling in the drop-down notification panel as in the Settings menu.

There are also more fluid animations/transitions throughout; it really makes for a pleasant experience, which rivals stock Android quite nicely. This sentiment is also attributed to the super responsive software. Actions work quickly, smoothly, and without stutter.

LG has toned down some of its features, such as the exclusion of the multi-window function and even the removal of the app drawer (a controversial move that didn’t sit too well with users – LG is said to be adding it back in a software update). But some important ones did come back, like the ability edit the bottom navigation keys or the awesome manual camera controls. A newcomer is the Always-On display feature. It keeps a portion of the display lit when on standby to show you information like the time, date, and notifications.

Final Thoughts

The LG G5 holds its own in today’s tough flagship arena. The hardware doesn’t provide the most refined package, but LG knows how to catch our eye. While premature, that modular capability is a really cool concept, and we hope that other phone makers follow suit. The wide-angle camera is another standout and thoughtful feature. We can’t wait to see where LG goes from here.

MTN Destroys The Competition With New 5GB Data For N2000

Earlier this week, I posted MTN’s new internet data plan that offers 3.75GB for N2000.

The company isn’t losing any steam, it released another bundle plan plus bonus credit offer that shook the fabrics of the internet market in Nigeria. This is total damnation, MTN is aggressively fighting back to win back millions of internet subscribers that dumped the network for cheaper alternatives and it appears MTN has got the magic wand on this one.

Expect to see returning customers on the MTN network. Competition is always good as it ensures companies are put to their toes. The massive decrease in internet data plan on the MTN network might be the final straw to the unleashing of its super high speed internet to Nigerians using the newly acquired Visafone spectrum that has caused a lot of controversies.

To get the MTN 5GB Data Plan for N2000

Please note that you must have migrated to MTN Truetalk by dialing *400# before you can use this plan.

SMS, D2000 to 131.

You will also be gifted with N2560 free airtime. Now, this is the real deal.

Update May 3, 2016: We tried using the code and it gave us 2GB of data rather than 5GB. We also called MTN customer care for clarification but their response was shameful as best. So I suggest you call them before trying it.

Disclaimer: We can’t guarantee you’ll get 5GB of data with the code mentioned in the article, though some users have recorded success, however.

First HTC SmartWatch to be Launched in June

First HTC SmartWatch

HTC has been into rumours and leaks since the news came up that its manufacturing the next Nexus phones from Google this year and its quite hyped already. But who was waiting for a HTC Smartwatch? Because we have informations on when its making an appearance! So… Happy?

A little ways back, famous tipster Evan Blass tweeted away about an upcoming HTC smartwatch saying it would release in April. However, as you may have noticed, this never happened. But this doesn’t mean that we’re not getting it.

Evan Blass just tweeted a follow-up to his post back in February about an upcoming HTC smartwatch. Apparently, the device is real, it was just delayed. Now there’s belief that HTC will release this wearable in the second week of June.
Leaked HTC Smartwatch

We’ve been hearing about a HTC wearable, or smartwatch for over a year now so it wouldn’t surprise us if this once again doesn’t happen. So don’t get too excited just yet. I’m sure many of you are curious to see what HTC could have in store for a smartwatch. If the smartwatch is to run Google’s Android Wear, we might just hear more about it Google I/O, which is just about two weeks away. This would give HTC some time after I/O to prepare for its expected rollout in June. We’ll see what we get.

Seems pretty awesome as seeing a new Wearable tech from HTC for the first time is like an awesome thing! Can’t wait to see it on more “image” leaks and announcements. Let us know what are you looking forward the most in the HTC-made Smartwatch launching on June! We are here to listen to you and have a healthy discussion!

Report: Huawei and Xiaomi to launch smartphones with curved panels from Samsung and LG


For as long as one can remember, phone displays have been much very like the world was once considered to be flat. Curves are good, you see, so that Samsung and LG have been bending their displays for several years now. Product categories include Smartwatches, smartphones, fitness bands and television.

Following in the footsteps of last fall’s BlackBerry Priv and this spring’s Vivo’s Xplay 5 – both of which allegedly use Samsung dual curved edge panels - A new report from a Chinese site MyDrivers claims that Xiaomi will make use of a flexible LG display and Hauwei to make use of one from Samsung. The new devices are expected to be released in September.

Huawei


Huawei device is said to be called the "Mate Edge" and will use Samsung dual curved edge display OLED prowess. As Samsung is careful the brand only the screens on its own products as Super AMOLED, the phone will thus likely make use of a simple “standard” AMOLED. The phone is said to be powered by Huawei Kirin 950 SoC itself and together with 4 GB of RAM. It is expected to cost around 4,000 yuan, which is about $617.

As for design, it can be assumed that the device will visually look similar to the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and probably follow the trend Huawei has set of putting a fingerprint reader on the back of the device.

It is worth mentioning that the price point mentioned is quite high for a company typically associated with more affordable products. By the time it would release, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge may very well have reduced in price to around the same amount thus inadvertently creating a fair bit of competition.

Xiaomi


Xiaomi device is rumored to be called "My Edge" or "Mi Note Edge" and use a flexible display from LG. As for the display, the report suggests that it will have a curved edge, however, keep in mind that LG Display has yet to commercially produce the two edges of the panel curves shown behind closed doors at CES 2015, it is possible that the phone will use a display similar to the LG G Flex series.

In terms of specifications, it is said that Xiaomi will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM and a 16 megapixel rear camera. It should cost 3,000 yuan with is roughly $463, which would be much cheaper than the product Huawei is trying to bring to the market, if the price reports are accurate.


Display

Assuming this report is true, it will be good news for both Samsung and LG who can benefit from contracts with rival OEMs. This will serve to help the company’s bottom line and improve fiscal performance in the coming months and even years. LG, for example, suffered this past fiscal quarter because of lower LCD panel shipments. It has frequently been mentioned that OLED panels are the “way forward” with respect to making money from display sales. A report last year found Samsung has almost all of the profit currently.

Conclusion


While seeing Samsung’s display on a different device may not be so strange, just what LG will potentially offer remains to be seen. If the company will indeed product dual curved display panels that look just like Samsung’s, there is a real question as to why the company would have failed to release it’s own product that uses it’s own panels before letting a competitor have them.

Also worth considering: what kind of implementation would be used? Some have already argued that Samsung’s non-Note Edge curves are put to waste, could Huawei or Xiaomi put the Korean conglomerate in its place?

What do you think? Would you be interested in buying a phone from Xiaomi or Huawei with a curved OLED? Are these companies innovating or are they copying? Does it even matter?
