Some Claim The iPhone 12's Frame Is Too Sharp And Are Cutting People's Hands

When Apple announced the iPhone 12, they revealed that the phone comes with a brand new design. It features flat edges around the phone similar to the design of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. It’s a welcome change, but could it be detrimental to users? Maybe, maybe not, if the claims on the internet are to be believed.

According to a report from MyDrivers as initially shared by GizChina, it seems that some people in China have taken to Weibo to share their negative experience with the new iPhone 12 where they are alleging that the edges of the phone are too sharp to the extent where it has actually cut into the flesh of some users while they are holding it.

2019 Volkswagen Arteon Review | Sharp Looks, More Room And Fewer Cylinders

2019 Volkswagen Arteon Review | Sharp looks, more room and fewer cylinders

According to Volkswagen, the new 2019 Arteon is the spiritual, not literal successor to the swoopy CC sedan. Another clue: the company will position the Arteon as the brand's flagship vehicle, rather than one of their strong-selling SUVs or crossovers. One VW rep said sales would be closer to the outgoing, niche Beetle than the volume-selling Tiguan or Atlas. Is the Wolfsburg brand crazy to emphasize the dwindling sedan market as most carmakers flee it? Listen up as we unravel the mystery of the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon.

When you look at the Arteon's underpinnings, VW's desire to separate it from the CC (or at least keep it at arm's length) starts to make more sense. While the CC was essentially a Passat with a lower roofline and snugger cabin, the Arteon rides on the more advanced MQB platform. The chassis gets five more inches of wheelbase, 2.9 more inches of rear legroom, and nearly double the cargo capacity. Here's another clue to the sleek four-door's place in the VW universe: Arteon's name derives from the Latin artem, which means "art." The wordplay suggests more of a design showcase than an appliance, a conveyance intended to make a statement and stand out. And stand out it does: from the Arteon's grille strakes that cleverly integrate into the LED headlamps to its uninterrupted character lines and elegantly tapered haunches, the attractive fastback manages to defy its relatively reasonable starting price of $36,840. This is not your father's Passat; The Arteon is a serious looker.

Sharp Shows Off Prototype Vertically Foldable Smartphone

Sharp Shows Off Prototype Vertically Foldable Smartphone

In 2019, we saw the official launch of the foldable smartphone concept where companies such as Samsung and Huawei have come forward with foldable smartphone concepts of their own. Clearly they are not alone and according to a recent video, it looks like Sharp could be interested in such devices as well.

The video above shows off a prototype from Sharp in which instead of a display folding outwards vertically like we’ve seen from Samsung and Huawei, Sharp has opted for a display the folds vertically. The display in question is said to measure 6.18-inches with a resolution of 1440×3040.

2019 Audi Q8 Drivers' Notes Review | Sharp Dresser

2019 Audi Q8 Drivers' Notes Review | Sharp dresser

The 2019 Q8 is the latest and greatest from Audi, a so-called four-door coupe that was inspired by models like the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe. These models trade in a little utility for a heavy dose of style, though the Audi is the least compromised of the trio when it comes to useable space. It's 21 cubic-feet of cargo volume behind the rear seats is roughly the same as the other two, but the way it's packaged allows for a more usable area. Rear visibility and rear headroom are improved, too. That said, new versions of both the X6 and GLE are on their way, so expect to see both of those models make some gains.

Like most Audis, the Q8 shares a lot with other Volkswagen Group models, namely the Porsche Cayenne, Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus. Our tester was the mid-level Premium Plus model. It's $4,000 more than a base Q8 Premium but includes features like 21-inch wheels, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, illuminated door sills, four-zone climate control, ventilated front seats and wireless charging. Other options on this model include $595 for the Daytona Grey paint, the $600 cold weather package and the $2,750 driver assistance package. The latter adds adaptive cruise with traffic jam assist, active lane assist and traffic sign recognition. All in, this Q8 will set you back $79,340.
