Preferences and attitudes of users also determine that the shape of the product is the stepping stone to pry open markets to a certain extent. Thus smartphones with features of ultrathin, extremely ultrathin and narrow rim design have become the key for many manufacturers to compete. AppearanceAi??may be the very critical factor in 2015.
