AnonD-571567, 28 Oct 2016Thanks for your effort. But I've read things like this before st... moreGyro detects location with respect to objects and movement rotation of your cellphone.
For example: You are playing a pokemon game, you hold it in front of you, behind the phone there is a chair, camera is showing the chair & algorithm put a pikachu (pokemon) on that chair, right?
Now how much you rotate your phone, change camera directions etc etc, the gyroscope will be detecting those movements, pikachu won't change its position when you change the movement/direction of your phone, because direction/position change was detected by the gyroscope and with respect to that pikachu still would be on the same chair instead of following your camera.

Rex Tech, 28 Oct 2016Accelerometer and gyroscope Accelerometers in mobile phones a... moreThanks for your effort. But I've read things like this before still don't get it. For instance, I know what light sensor does in real life, it detects the presence of bright light and consequently increases the brightness of your screen. It is behind auto brightness. Proximity sensor detects when the phone is close to your body and puts off screen light and kinda locks the screen to prevent you from accidentally hanging up your call among other things.
So, gyro in real life what does it do?

Interesting speaker location, I wonder if it sounds any better from up there.

AnonD-571567, 27 Oct 2016What is gyroscope used for?Accelerometer and gyroscope

Accelerometers in mobile phones are used to detect the orientation of the phone. The gyroscope, or gyro for short, adds an additional dimension to the information supplied by the accelerometer by tracking rotation or twist.

An accelerometer measures linear acceleration of movement, while a gyro on the other hand measures the angular rotational velocity. Both sensors measure rate of change; they just measure the rate of change for different things.

In practice, that means that an accelerometer will measure the directional movement of a device but will not be able to resolve its lateral orientation or tilt during that movement accurately unless a gyro is there to fill in that info.

With an accelerometer you can either get a really "noisy" info output that is responsive, or you can get a "clean" output that's sluggish. But when you combine the 3-axis accelerometer with a 3-axis gyro, you get an output that is both clean and responsive in the same time.

not so impressed with the concept design..though C5 and C7 were already on the market..got so many series nowadays, A/E/C/J, but it's still good giving the users options but too much options are eye-sores..

Rex Tech, 27 Oct 2016Great improvement over A5 6,finally seeing a A72 core on a midra... morei wish it stays under 400 $ too

Hope SOC is based on 14nm.
Very imp battery should be removable >3000mAh
Should have 4GB RAM option.
Camera should have OIS & 4K Video.

Then will consider it over ZTE Nubia Z11 Mini S.

Guest, 27 Oct 2016Hope there will be gyroscope and led notification What is gyroscope used for?

Osiris, 27 Oct 2016Yeah right ;) Not gonna hapenHow did you know?

again no notification LED? Fail!

  • AnonD-594894

AnonD-571567, 27 Oct 2016I hope Samsung would be generous enough to add a tiny little LED... moreYeah right ;) Not gonna hapen

Great improvement over A5 6,finally seeing a A72 core on a midrange phone from Samsung.Would be great if it's price stays bellow 400$.

Guest, 27 Oct 2016Hope there will be gyroscope and led notification Yeah i would like that too, but samsung people are kind of aholes when it comes to that on midrange : D just look the back camera led ... they left with the old design just so it looks a little ugly... i really hate when i see companies doing that.

At least the gpu is way better than mali t720 trash. I would like to have also a led notification

  • AnonD-571567

I hope Samsung would be generous enough to add a tiny little LED notification light to this one.
