The top flagship smartphones of this fall, the iPhone 14 Pro Max and Huawei Mate 50 Pro, decided to test for water resistance.
We have yet to imagine waiting for the appearance of videos in which smartphones will be lowered to various depths. In the same video, the author of the comparison decided to test the iPhone 14 Pro Max and Mate 50 Pro on how they resist hot water. He put them in the tub and started pouring water from the shower.
Under the influence of the flow of water, the touch screens began to actively respond. The test author claims that after the procedure, the Huawei Mate 50 speakers sounded slightly better than the iPhone 14 Pro Max. This is probably a subjective assessment.
At the same time, a comparison of the cameras and screens of the two phones showed that they fully retained their performance. The touch control works fine, there are no traces of fogging anywhere.
Enthusiast replaced the numeric keypad with a disk from an old phone
It would seem that it is almost impossible to change such a thing as a keyboard in any original way. However, the user under the nickname Squidgeefish succeeded. He added a real disk from an old wired telephone to a regular keyboard and made it all work.
The disk is placed on the right and performs the functions of a digital block – only numbers need to be entered by turning the dialer. And here a problem arises – such a system is analog, and any modern keyboard is digital. The enthusiast was able to connect the drive from the phone using the DFRobot Beetle Board based on the ATmega32U4 chip. This board is able to work with analog signals and at the same time supports a standard USB port.
I also had to experiment with the keyboard itself, because I had to cut the printed circuit board. And for aesthetics, the enthusiast added 3D-printed makers. The result is a rather strange and quirky, but fully functional keyboard. According to the source, the cost of the project was no more than $30.
At the same time, using the disk, you can enter not only numbers, but also special characters, such as the percent sign, brackets, and so on. And instead of the standard digital buttons, the enthusiast put a stub.
All leaders will lose, but Apple will strengthen. TrendForce published a forecast for the smartphone market
According to TrendForce analysts, in the third quarter of this year, the smartphone market sank by 11%, to 289 million units.
The market leaders were Samsung, Apple, Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo, but the current quarter will temporarily change the balance of power. According to analysts, Apple will increase its share from 17.6% to 24.6%, overtaking Samsung, which will occupy 20.2% against the current 22.2%. This is not the first time that Apple has become a market leader in the fourth quarter, which is explained by the release of a new generation of iPhone.
At the same time, it can be seen that the source predicts a decrease in market share for all leaders, except for Apple. It is worth noting that in this case, the source considers the sales of Oppo as sales including Realme, which is not typical. It also counts OnePlus sales, but that’s normal after a merger.
