Sleep om te herschikken

We put the Edge to bed in an iOpener nest—hopefully it awakes refreshed, with adhesive released.

Lifting the glass and...wait—is that normal?

Looks like prying into the curved display means we separated the display just a little bit. Whoops.

According to Samsung, the curved glass is created by a process called 3D thermoforming, a process of heating and molding the glass. While it looks slick, it comes at a cost—in this case eight times the cost. That's right, what was once a $3 part could now cost Samsung as much as $26 due to low yields.

A recent report claims that Samsung's curved-glass supplier is only getting 50% yield, and that's pretty awful for the environment. Manufacturing is already rough enough on the planet, and this means they've got to make two screens for every phone.
