Counterclockwise: naming things is hard, so every new phone is called the "One"

07 April 2019
HTC One, OnePlus One, Android One, Google One, tech companies don't have much imagination when it comes to naming things.

Sort by:

"One" usully mean it is the "only" thing you will need. Xbox one, had to replace multimedia centre, and do all your movie watching and cable tv and gaming as "one" device. Same with google one or Microsoft onedrive. One place to store your digital shit :) but yeah now it looks really stupid, cause usaully "one does everything" does everything in mediocre fashion :)

Well, it's some what cooler to name a phone with weird words. Like Samsung S10 Uvuvuvwe or Iphone X Chupacabra

Something about being consistent in their inconsistencies...

What the hell... The little s looks exactly like their sufix on earlier model for example 4s, 5s and 6s. I bet the result with copy/paste would be the same if you did it with 5s. It's not 5S. Oh well...

It's the Appel iPhoen Xmas!

Well it could be very funny to name Phones after pokemons for example.
S10E should be Charmander, S10 charmeleon and S10+ Charizard.
Just for example.

Or Deity, Divine and God.
Whelp, Drake, Dragon.

Copy-and-paste the text from Apple's own product page (link below), it looks like an upper-case X and a lower-case S, but when pasting it into a text editor, you'll see that both characters are upper case.

It's disappointing that I have to know these silly nuances for my job :(

RX0, RX1, RX10 and RX100

RX0 is that one that rivals Go Pro.
RX1 is a Full Frame fixed lens pocket cam
RX10 is 1" cybershot DSLR body style and fixed lenses
RX100 is 1" pocket camera with fixed lenses

This is an informative article because I had been confused by the naming scheme of every new phone nowadays.

Sendo X was a beast back then. Friend had it and i was so jealous (probably the only Sendo X in Estonia :-) ). Felt definitely better, faster and cooler than Nokia 6600 i had that time.
