    This is a major negative consequence of consumerism. When you buy phones every year and you continue that trend for several years, your wow factor and also your overall happiness will eventually degrade over time. This is actually based on my experience. Since 2014, I continue the trend of consumerism by buying smartphones every year. This caused me to become ungrateful, lazy, antisocial, discontented( not being satisfied with what I have), spoiled and I feel like I'm depleting the environment of resources. I consider consumerism as a biggest contemporary issue of 2020

    We need more unique smartphone materials like apple's stainless steel sides, Huawei's leather backs. I'm tired of the glass and metal design.

    Naw i aint trippin. It just my phone is not worth 1,100 dollars!!! Idc how new it is. Fuck that

    The physical designs of cell phones is irrelevant. To say the iPhone killed phone design is the same as saying the iPhone started the cell phone resolution. It's obvious.
    But physical design (apart from some obvious physical UI elements like the fingerprint scanner, camera configuration or physical button location) is irrelevant.
    Phones are all software now. So the design is all in the software. Implementation, connectivity, and features are more important than what the color of the phone is.)
    Companies are still innovating from a functionality standpoint.
    The next Gen will be, foldability, or flexible, or see through.
    Phone design is mature. We're ready for the next generation or revolution in smart phones, and foldability will probably be that.

    After under display cameras become standard I think companies may start making the entire screen able to read finger prints instead of one spot after that I don’t knit what else they could do besides increasing battery life and increasing camera quality

    The biggest issue is yearly releases and the artificial need to upgrade every-single-year. I absolutely hate it. There' no reason for there to be 3 versions of the same phone released every damn year. It's such a waste of natural resources. I would prefer it to go back to a two year cycle or something. Give us some better software and make updates matter like they used to.

    You can’t blame Apple for their superior design and tech for the design of smartphones now. Those Android phone companies decided to copy of Apple and that was their decision not Apple’s. These Android companies want money so that’s exactly why they copy off of Apple’s design and that’s Samsung’s, Google’s, LG’s, OnePlus’, and other Android companies fault for using the now “boring” design.

      I mean, if they make it thiner then it might be good. Like when its folded together it has the size of a normal one but you can also unfold it if you get what Im trying to say here xD

    I see where you are going, back in 2011 Sony brought out the Xperia lineup and I was super excited to get the new Xperia Play, I'm mostly into mobile gaming, retro gaming to be more exact, but, back in 2011 the mobile industry was still in the early stages, android 2.2, single core processors, etc. But, despite all this I had high hopes for the Xperia Play, it sure was unique, with a physical controller adapted to the phone, stereo speakers and first gen snapdragon processor, it sure was ahead of its time, way to ahead unfortunatelly, it didn't do to well in the market and Sony left it behind, to bad, cause even after that, there was and still is a large comunity that has programed alot of emulators based around the Xperia Plays design, even today, with its low end profile it's still a good emulator mobile, Sony tried to enovate in design with the first gen of Xperia phones, but at the end decided to keep it "safe" and follow the crowd, I always hoped that Sony would reconsider the Xperia Play and brought back with todays high specs, that would bring a breath of fresh air to the mobile gaming comunity, guess i'll shop ebay for and old Play for old times sake.

    What's next is price, and especially in the US, there's a long way to go. Look at what you can buy new for $100 - Nearly nothing. $200 can get you some okay but $100 is basically out of the question. Realme has phones that come really close but they don't have any US lte bands. Honor was starting to put some heat on Moto but then Huawei got kicked out, leaving the budget and entry levels basically solely for Moto. Now moto no longer needs to push its prices down to competitive levels because there's no/very little competition.

    Glad I'm not the only one who notice their creating Mobile purposes by copying the "full screen resolution" design from iPhone, it sucks 'cause most of the phones now and then look exactly the same with the shapes and all that, they now basically making them no differences except some small addition. Nah, I'm still happy with my FE even 'till now.
