Obviously not designed for the British market, you'd have to leave it out all year to make a phone call.

Simply something to show off with, nothing more.

Well, yes, we are peacocks.
We flash our "things" to intimidate/make our competitors jealous and "out-class" them in the eyes of our potential mates.
You might be judgmental vs. a society driven by consumerism and sexism, which I think is good, but I am calling things by their name.

You guys over-analyze it.
The guy/gal who has $7,000 to blow on a phone doesn't care about "productivity"....

It's the same as judging a supercar based on its mpg...

Sure, if you can have "both" attributes (blink + productivity for the phone, or crazy power + good mpg in the car), it is a very good thing, but it is far from the main issue.

Having to ask these questions, shows that this is clearly not a product for you.
Which - in a sad way - it is exactly what those extra-expensive-limited-edition blink wants to do (like those multi M diamond-headlight supercars etc): separate the needs from the wants, the "investment" into a gadget vs. the blind "look-at-how-much-money-I-can-afford-to-burn" gadget.

There are many ppl that would call you and me for spending ridiculous amount of money for stupid PC rigs that literarily add nothing to productivity.
There are ppl that have 5-figure gaming rigs (including monitors etc, we have quite a few in these forums). Zero value added to productivity.
There are ppl that have 5-6 figure sportscars or hot-rods or w/e with zero utility as vehicles.

Many laugh at those, many would thing of that as distasteful or offending "in these days and times".
Well, take it up a notch, and just like you justify your crap, Tag Heuer bets 1,900 ppl will want to have that $7,000 phone and sell that "cool-story-bro" solar panel thing to their friends.

Preaching to the quire?
Does it make no sense still?

yes I suppose I am judgemental in that way because I had hoped that humanity could evolve past using shiny baubles as sexual advertisements.. usually the exact kind of people who use such things have repulsive personalities and a broken moral compass. But that's just me, I guess that’s the world some live in. I like function over form.

the majority of times I have seen this gloating / showing off is between men with not a woman in sight

Would be cool if they could put this solar panel tech into a slim case/screen protector combo.

the point of "Wysips" is to integrate the solar panel into the display

But we are talking about something a few orders of magnitude difference here.

A typical watch battery is 50-80 mAh and can run a watch for months.... something like 0.4mAh a day.
A typical smartphone battery is 1800-2800 mAh and can run a phone for days on-standby or less than 12 hrs in usage... something like 3000 mAh a day.

The solar panel here is maybe 4-5 times bigger than your watch's. That is not going to make up for the 750,000% difference here.

It's like comparing a snail to a tiger just because both are animals....

You didn't read the rest of my conversation unfortunately. I wasn't suggesting any similarity other than the solar panel being effective as an additional power source, and it being the same sort of tech as on my watch.

Nowhere does my post read 'it can be run on the solar panel'

i guess they could make a mechanical one kinda like watch , a low power one do , not a smartphone.
to be honest it s what i expected when i saw a watch maker making a perpetual battery phone , this is not that amazing , doh.gif

I think this phone is meant for more than just a low level phone with renewable power.
Basically I think its meant for "show and tell". Maybe one of the bigger companies will buy the tech instead of patent and steal it.
With the specs, its far from being an amazing phone. The idea is nice. It has potential. I think this is where it ends until the next iteration.

The new nexus phone coming out would crush this, plus this is a high end watch company, they should stick to that
