A question for the EPD (ereader display) is whether we use mat-glass or plastic.
Glass looks better and feels better, but it can break. Plastic does not feels so good, but is shatter-proof.
Also plastic layer would give us a “paper feel” when writing on it with a stylus. This would be better if we want to use it as a small graphic tablet. I think it could be very handy for doing small sketches or taking notes.
I agree with the proposition of plastic.
I see only advantages: it’s lighter and less risk of scratches.
Whereas I prefer, by far, having a glass on the main screen for the comfort of touch, I think that for epaper screen usage, it’s not mandatory.
We’ll have less interactions with the epaper screen.
I think a plastic finish would be useful for the rear screen. However it would be good to think of fingerprints on the rear, perhaps a matte finish would be good? With a black background on the e-paper display, this could give a brushed aluminium look.
@matuki plastic can scratch more easily than glass. That’s the main issue with using a plastic front.
We could actually use plastic for both screens. But it gives a cheap aspect to the phone… The yota2 back panel does feel really good being glass.
I’m still thinking on it.
@adri Hi! Yes you are right, mate is definitly necessary. Black borders yes too. 🙂
