YUKI93, 05 Feb 2021I don't see the point of wireless charging when you st... moreI see your point of view, but let me tell you mine:
I absolutely love the wireless charging stand in my office. My S10e is standing in front of me, very good view at the notifications. Phone is charging and if I need to pick up the phone then there is no hassle with any cable: just use my phone and put it back on the stand.
Slow QI charge is no issue for me also, as I arrive to the office I put my phone on it. 8 hours of work can assure ~ 6 hours of slow charge (assuming that I also use the phone ). I leave office with a fully loaded phone that can easily last till next day and there is absolutely no need to search for my charger at home in the evening.
My GF and me are using a SOCO power bank with QI charging so we both can use that without cable ( and keeping in mind that I have USB type C and she has got Lightning cable this is very useful function).

To sum it up: Yes, wireless charging is not necessary, but it is absolutely comfortable. And I would never buy a phone without it again.

    I find it interesting that other OEMs have embraced curved displays to the point of making them even more prenounced and all four sides, whereas Samsung who was the first to introduce curved displays is moving away from them. Personally I like them, hope there here to stay.

      Ugly corners, no display there. They're trying to hide it.

        Hopping to see it happening for real.
        Owing a cool phone is something else. I like being standing out in the crowd.

          Even if:
          - it is very fragile, can not be protected
          - has no cable connection
          - can not be used with hand without constant unsolicited touches
          - has no effective function

          It looks absolutely stunning!

            No, just NO.

              Vivo also came with concept, it's inevitable. Wonder though what will happen to lossless sound, wire is still the only way.

                    10 out of 10 for cool factor, 1 out of 10 for practical real-world use. Going all wireless? No thanks, I don't embrace them anymore.

                                    all whole curve is nightmare.
                                    It means the frames are glass (and glass breaks).
                                    Better if the frame made from metal or plastic.

                                    And that prototype has NO CHARGING PORT.
                                    The trend of iPhone' no port will start.
                                    Imagine you must playing game with TWS that always have sound delay. You must buy very expensive TWS so the sound is on time.

                                      This seems like a nice concept, but what about usability?
                                      Does it come with 5 free replacements for broken screen when it drops?
                                      Because I can't really put tempered glass screen protector on this, and most drop-protecting cases won't do much with so much curvature (they can cover edges but your device will likely jump out of the case as soon as that edge hits the ground).

                                      Oh, and does it have a charging port? Any side buttons? Or was everything removed for the screen?

                                      And what's next, a screen pebble? A device that is 100% screen on all sides, with no holes whatsoever, with all the cameras hidden behind the screen, with only wireless communications, no speakers (or speakers built into the screen)?
