Carl Pei Responds to the OnePlus 3 Display Issues

OnePlus 3 had a rather shaky start with a VR event that needed viewers to download a 600MB file minutes before the event started, but later on the rave reviews piled up and OnePlus 3 finally started getting some love from the people. However, a review at AnandTech commented about the 5.5-inch optic AMOLED display and the way OnePlus explained it to the customers.



The review further explained how the new display in OnePlus 3 was a disappointed as opposed to the OnePlus 2 and even the OnePlus One. While OnePlus claimed that the 1080p display was something that they opted to achieve greater battery life and resolutions above 1080p would be rendered useless in VR. Brendon, reviewer at Anandtech refuted both the points saying that the unit in the OnePlus 3, a PenTile AMOLED display at a resolution of 1080p is simply not that effective and maybe a 1440p AMOLED display would have made a difference.

The review went on further and deduced how the display fitted in the OnePlus 3 is not up to the mark and in fact it is OnePlus Two that would take the lead in several tests. The peak brightness is maxed out at 413 nits which is way lesser than the 554 nits in OnePlus 2. The discussion further also explained how the device falls short of expectations in various display parameters including White point, greyscale accuracy, saturation accuracy, actual resolution and GMB accuracy.

Redditors took the cue and started exclaiming that OnePlus had cut the corners when it comes to display. The discussion took its own course until Carl Pei replied to the Reddit thread. Carl rubbished the claim that this was due to cutting corners and he also expressed his angst people who would go all the way to find faults. He also stated explicitly that the BOM (Bill of Materials) for the OnePlus 3 is nearing to the BOM of other flagships. Carl also makes it clear that the Optic AMOLED was not tuned to sRGB and this type of tuning is usually a “niche requirement.”

Carl Pei’s literal rant ended with him proclaiming that OnePlus has never cut corners on the hardware and it is the business model, organisation structure and the word of mouth marketing that has helped them cut the costs.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
