2017 was an interesting year. It saw manufacturers suddenly develop an allergy to bezels and push harder than ever to find the best way forward for smartphone design. While there were a lot of interesting design iterations, my favourite has always been the “notch”.
The only problem is that smartphones with this particular look are hard for the regular consumer to get a hold of. That is, until now. Until Sharp Mobile Malaysia decided to bring in the Aquos S2, one of the very first smartphones to feature this wrap-around screen design.
My iPhone is getting slow, it’s time for a new one. That’s a common thought if your phone starts to feel sluggish. If you think your old iPhone isn’t good enough to handle newer apps and features, turns out that Apple has indeed slowed down older iPhone models intentionally. This even includes last year’s iPhone 7.
