So stick with a standard and never change? That's logical. I mean, why did we ever move forward with computers? We should have stuck with typewriters. They worked just fine, and TVs should have stayed 4:3.

You should compare it to something comparable, like paper sizes. There's no point in change if it isn't going to be better. 3D TVs? Yeah, who cares. There's no benefit in changing the aspect ratio, but there is in having one standard that everyone can use. Like with charging cables.

Is that true though? Sure, most new flagship phones have 18:9, but that doesn't mean it is the new standard for phones.

Every new tv/monitor was curved or 3D at one point, but that fad went away.

IT wasnt a fad per say. The curved screen does give a perceivably better immersion effect. They stopped making them for TV's because the practicality of having only a single focal point that gets the optimal viewing experience for a screen marketed to have more than one person watching at a time made no sense. However, curved monitors are still a thing (VERY much so actually, especially in gaming monitors.) because monitors are usually only used by one person. 

 

3D was a total fad and I'm glad its dead.

It's not a PC forum.

Well, as the recently posted video shows, people often watch video vertically on mobile. Clearly, quality is not the focus for a lot of mobile viewers. That defeats the argument of going 18:9 because of mobile users (in fact 16:9 content will look better than 18:9 viewed vertically, but either's going to be pretty crappy).

Sure, "tech" forum, but you're really arguing semantics there.

I don't know the video you're referencing but I'm not sure how one could come to that conclusion.

Every new tv/monitor was curved or 3D at one point, but that fad went away. 18:9 could very well be another fad. I feel kinda mixed about my 18:9 phone, it is a little too tall for me tbh.

 

Its not. For one, as I said above, it could just be a fad. But 2, its better to keep it at what people actually currently use since these are tech videos. future proofing is 100% pointless on his videos. No one is going back to watch a video about the gtx 980 or whatever.

Yes. Right now we have a really horrible pool to go from, but if you look at the GSMArena phones for 2019 so far there's 9 devices listed, of which 7 are 18:9 (or greater), one is a feature phone, and one is unlisted though by the looks of it, it too is 18:9. Pretty sure the ratio is the same just too tired to calculate it. None of these are flagship devices.

 

That's simply not true. People to back to watch videos all the time. I've seen many, many posts where new users say they're going through the catalogs of older videos. Especially since there's a lot of cool ones that aren't necessarily reviews of cards. Or, they're looking at reviews when buying older hardware.

 

Really, the whole poll is a little flawed. It'd paint a lot more complete picture if you'd included the medium the people voting use. If it was mostly PC, obviously the results are skewed to those that use the forum.

Pretty sure this is the exact definition of a "sell out." 

 

In fact, webster defines it as:

": to betray one's cause or associates especially for personal gain"

 

And urban dictionary defines it as:

 

sell out:

Anyone who sacrifices artistic integrity in an effort to become more successful or popular (generally in music); someone who forgets their roots.

 

Sounds about right to me.  

Their cause is to make content. They still make content. Thus, they're not selling out. Do you think he does it for shits and giggles, or to provide for his family?

You've really got a warped view of the way the world works.
If we're going for the "core" audience...I joined the forum 3 years before you did. So, by your logic, my opinion would matter more than yours anyway.

2:1 doesn't bother me on my 16:9 TV. I'm also used to watching 16:9 content on a 16:10 monitor so bars are nothing new for me. It's a good aspect ratio to be reasonable on modern phones, 16:9 displays and 21:9 displays.
