True story. I was never good at math. This means it's a qHD display. Which is still an upgrade from what the original SGSII has. Sent from my Droid using Tapatalk

My calcs went the other way. (921,600 - 518,400) / 921,600 = 0.4375 or 44% (or the qHD is only 45% of a 720P display). Either way, the numbers don't add up to 35%. But using your method:

480x800 = 384000

(518400 - 384000) / 384000 = 0.35 or 35%.

So it looks like it's referring to a qHD display versus the standard 800x480 display.

Correct me if I'm worng, but doesn't qHD mean Quarter HD display? I recall reading that this is because the qHD display is a quarter of the pixel count of a true HD display, thus 77% sounds a little more accurate. Just my .02

Having worked in product development in the technology field and administered market research, I would like to weigh in and voice my opinion on this. The object of qualitative market reseach, such as focus groups, is to get reactions to help the company focus it's development and product cost towards features that resonates with people. The different features are mentioned and the reaction of the group members is recorded by people behind the mirror wall. So, when they say the phone is the most powerful one on the market, they will watch to see what the reaction is, etc. You often throw out "extreme" features just to see if that resonates with the group.

A samsung phone made out of something other than plastic??? get real But there is not a chance in hell that this is the Bionic, that is a pipe dream people. Not trying to rain on a parade but lets be realistic here. .25" thick and super amoled and we are still wondering if this is the Bionic??? c'mon now guys.

That is a Focus Group doc and, as noted previously in this thread, is most likely a "mash-up" of specs to get customer reaction to them and see which of these specs that "care about" most. This Focus Group could have been formed to determine a marketing strategy for one or more Verizon phones so that they will appeal to the widest audience.

What docs? If you're referring to the docs in Phil's post, it doesn't refer to a notification "light". It just says there's a "special notification".

Idk this sounds too good to be true. I think it almost sounds like sgs3 or the next nexus. I mean we all saw the gs2 and that was without LTE. These doc's just lead me to believe this is what people came up with as wanting for the ultimate phone. But who knows maybe samsung did get it right, just call me skeptical because phone OEM's seem to always leave something out in their phones so they can build upon it for the next version of the phone.

It sounds to me like it is not necessarily device specific but a focus group to determine where to dump their marketing dollars. They want to see what terms resonate with the general public.We tech geeks get all hot an bothered when we hear great technical specs but that is not true of the general buying public, which is 99% of the buyers. They need to figure out what gets normal people excited to buy a phone - do they even know what Amoled is? Do they understand, care about or get excited about: more powerful processors, 4G, higher resolution, pixels, Kevlar, transferring files.

You know that is a really solid observation. Maybe they handed one group the spec sheet meant to wow and the other the captioned pages. This is probably spot on. Glad I did a few hours of work rather than waiting for the Better-than-any-other-DROID phone.

Course - maybe its the iPhone 6

Guys I think you are all over thinking this. These sorts of focus groups are to decide what features customers value most. This isn't a real phone as much as them throwing out features being considered for a phone to figure out what would be most valuable to end users. My guess is that this is for a future Samsung device that Verizon is interested in selling and they are trying to figure out what features they want Samsung to put the biggest focus on. Obviously customer input on a device like the Bionic and SII now is pointless as they are almost certainly far too along in the build process to make changes. Assuming this was a recent focus group then I would guess we are looking at a phone that's 6-9 month away...

Beat me to it. Was pretty much going to say the same thing.
25. ## Re: Docs from a Verizon focus group [unconfirmed]

But when it mentions "no matter how you hold it" when talking about antennas.....wasnt that from the Motorola Droid X ad that was a dig at the iPhone 4 death grip issue?

The Droid X1 has 2 antennas for reception, could be Moto upping the ante with antennas a bit.

It also said the thinnest 4G smart phone.

Maybe a future Motorola phone?
