    ZTE launches Axon M, a dual 5.2-inch screen smartphone

    Displays work in dual, mirror, and extend modes. However this phone is 12.1mm thick.

    At least it's a different take on smartphones.

    Re: ZTE launches Axon M, a dual 5.2-inch screen smartphone

    IIRC the screen is the second most power consuming component, behind mobile data networking (or wifi???) and thus having two of them on a pretty standard battery sounds like a terrible idea. With even moderate brightness I can't imagine long life out of the device. Which of course leads to the question, what is the value in a feature you have to turn off most of the time?

    Re: ZTE launches Axon M, a dual 5.2-inch screen smartphone

    It's interesting but that bezel kills it for me..especially when we're expecting the Samsung Galaxy X mid next year which promises a foldable screen without the bezel, and we know LG has it's own prototype in the works.

    I'd actually favour a device with 3 screens - so you could use it as a normal phone most of the time but open it up to have a mini tablet. A bit like the old folding sony tablet-P but with a screen on the front. Interesting concept to launch mind, even if I am not remotely tempted to buy one

    Must be getting harder to come up with pointless gimmicks that aren't already out there in existing phones.

    It's only harder because they haven't employed me as their designer...!!

    I kind of like the concept and at least they are trying something that is not common. Still better than all the companies selling a slightly better webcam camera as "revolutionary" for another £500 over another smartphone.

    There goes your chance of wearing those 11mm pocketed extra tight leather hipster trousers.

    Is it? I mean, the method for doing that recently was just "add another camera, get the software to think like a brain". So now they've just added another screen. And it doesn't even think like a brain.

    So what?
    Brains are stupid. They lose data, confuse things and even forget what they went into a room for.

    How good would it be if your phone kept bouncing back and asking, "Sorry Oz, I know you pressed a button, but I've forgotten who it was you wanted to dial... did you want to dial someone? Was it Kev? You know, the one with the lazy eye that you try not to mention? That's Kev, isn't it? No, not Kev? Oh, not dialling.... What was it, then? Oh you were Googling something. Right, yes, I remember now.... sorry, what was it you were Googling, again?".
