    ….Curved screens are problematic on regular phones. Those problems are magnified in a slider form factor…

    … I am service technician and i must agree. Curved sreens looks “maybe” beautiful, but are really more fragile and pricey.
    Changing display on phones like S6edge etc is too much pricey, that is better put broken phone into trash and buy whole new phone.
    BUT…unfortunately…is maybe too late late to made new construction for “flat” display…if phone will be released within few months. So now is needed to reconcile with curved screed, or maybe wait for Pro2.

    …and i forgot…i really dont like oled displays…yess – colors are good, but life is short…it will be burned lite plasma tv :(

    Well in my experience it much depends on the usage. Used with a high brightness and/or some of the tempting always-on functionality, yes then OLED can burn, but if not, I do not see it as an issue. Many years ago I had a series of Samsung E870, and the exterior always-on OLED-displays, indeed did get burned out. When an update allowed to turn the always-on function off, the problem was gone, even on this early OLED.

    …hmmm yesss…and no too. Really old oled/amoled displays butned into totally black…Low resolution phones have this problems not too big. Correct is , that its depends on usage – white screen with black text will burn screen quickly. I have not seen old S2 with burned text on display. Big problems with burning are now on S7 and 8…on both – curved and flat

    I have seen Burn-in on Galaxy S2, S3, Note 2, so older devices aswell. I assume the usage hours for the displays was not that high in the past, and yes, the overall brightness which increased with the new screens does add to this effect.
    I do prefer OLED over LCD, great colours, and no problems of stains due to the backlight getting dirty. And easyer to refurbish. (although curved does not help here..)

    I only got my S8- for half a year, but the BB Priv for three, and have seen no burn ins (yet?) on either. But could well be a matter of usage pattern. I use my phones/phablets primarily indoors, so seldom in need of high brightness. For both I have used a white theme, though after Pie switched to a black one on the S8-

    Not a fan of curved screen or the 2:1 screen. Would have preferred a flat screen with either 8:5 or 3:2 ratio that would have more lines when held in landscape(the main USP of the phone).

    Would still be getting one though..

    From my point of view, curved screen is useful.. if you are using the proper software for it. I loved the curved glass on Nokia N9 back in the day and if Sailfish is going to be a supported operating system for the device, curved screen is more than welcome for OS where swiping from the edges is key for navigation and multitasking. It truly makes using the device more satisfying.

    So, keep the screen as is, please ;-)

    Yes, I have seen the tweet. There are many community devices for Sailfish, but without the official support by Jolla/Sailfish Team, it does not have Android support. Xperia XA2-lineup is currently on beta stage for Android 8.1 support which enables most of the Android Apps to your phone. (While Jolla 1, Jolla C, Xperia X currently support up to Android 4.4)

    This is extremely important since there are multiple apps that do not have a native Sailfish client nor does the app developer allow 3rd party developers to create their own (Whatsapp as one of the prime examples).

    I was really looking forward to this phone but the curved screen is an absolute dealbreaker for me. If that does not change I will stick to my Moto Z Play and the bluetooth keyboard attachment I made.

    I think it’s completely beside the point to use a curved screen to make it look cool for a wider audience. This phone is made specifically FOR the dinosaurs. Who else would buy a keyboard phone? The “kids these days” don’t care about a keyboard. It’s just not cool anymore.

    There is a reason why every major phone manufacturer stopped making phones with keyboards, and that is because they are targeted to a very niece audience, and that is mostly people who had a smartphone (and thus a phone with a keyboard in most cases) before the iPhone came out. A.k.a. the Dinosaurs.

    Essentially, almost everyone of us wants a modern version of our old Nokia Communicators, N9000, Motorola Droids and therelikes.

    And Curved Screens where a cool gimmick in 2015. Now they just suck.
