A Critique Of Apple Design

How Apple Is Giving Design A Bad Name

Gone are the fundamental principles of good design: discoverability, feedback, recovery, and so on. Instead, Apple has, in striving for beauty, created fonts that are so small or thin, coupled with low contrast, that they are difficult or impossible for many people with normal vision to read. We have obscure gestures that are beyond even the developer’s ability to remember. We have great features that most people don’t realize exist.

A New Six-Inch Screen Gionee (BLU?) Phone Spotted

Gionee GN8001 with 6″ display, 5020mAh battery receives network certification

The 6-inch display will be an AMOLED 1920 x 1080p panel, which is an interesting choice. Along with that, this Gionee phone will have an octa-core 1.3GHz processor; we assume it’ll be nothing but the MediaTek MT6753. To further confuse you about the device’s exact placement (mid-range vs flagship), Gionee will ship the phone with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage, which will be expandable by another 128GB via microSD.

This sounds like a “downgrade upgrade” from the Gionee ELife E8 phone, which BLU picked up as the Pure XL.

The lower-resolution screen combined with the larger battery — and “weaker” CPU — should give it the kind of battery life the BLU Pure XL lacks.

Could BLU set a new price record with this one? Maybe US$199?

We probably won’t know until early 2016.
