    For people like me we doubt we ever come across a phone over £500. So it doesn't matter if the phones get better and better. Mostly that is. Because the old ones get cheaper for us sometimes.

    The smartphone bubble is basically about to burst. Not in a catastrophic way necessarily but in a way that leads to something major coming out like maybe a refined version of the Samsung folding phone. Also tech companies need to realize that people don't want to always buy a new phone every year or two. Instead of trying to innovate in smaller increments with hardware, make minor improvements through software then, every four or five years, make a major hardware jump.

    Honestly what is the point in apple making a new phone every year? I have a Motorola Z2 Play and it's been good to me for 3 years and no cracks or anything! Also, one of my friends dad has an IPhone 6 and it does everything he needs it to! I want to see a real game changer!

    I dont get this people are chil and calm when they see a new Samsungs phone theat just came out but when Apple gives a new phone it is in fu cking trend and everyone buys it knowing it theat if you dont have spare money and you are clumsy you wont be able to have the phone and knowing theat Samusng is a bit faster and you have allmost in every bigger city in Europe where im from you have a Samsung shop. Im my country there is 1 Apple shop and 8 Samsung stores. I know it is a smoll country but stil wtf

    Yup, after I brought my iPhone XS Max straight out that’s when I knew that this phone will indeed be my last phone for a while.
    Most people will upgrade to a newer phone for features that they’ll never really use all to upgrade again when the chances present themselves.
    Also most people will lease a phone with the highest gigs all to never use half of it and then upgrade again, waste of money.

    I dont Know if it's the phones that are getting boring as much as its Tech TheXvidrs that are getting boring as they loose there enthusiasm and attention to detail in reviews. I've personally noticed several of the TheXvid community misrepresenting devices giving out incorrect specs or leaving out features in their nonchalant reviews as of late.

  • Kyle Norris
    Kyle Norris 3 days ago

    The main problem with all tech TheXvidrs at the moment is the fact that they are focused solely on the exterior of the note vs the s10 and they fail to recognize the Software and hardware differences. Note has UFS 3.0 and 12gbps Lppdr4x Ram a S pen DeX on PC and S pen and its features etc. Stop being so critical and pay attention to the details. Sure I could have kept the note 9 for years but I wanted the future proofing of 5G and faster Storage and Ram as well as a bigger screen and faster charging

    Until foldable and/or flexible becomes affordable, I'll be fine staying a few years behind.
    As far as design, I wouldn't mind a foldable the size of the DS XL. I grew up using Walkmans, CD players, and Gameboys; When did ¼-inch thick become a problem? College and high school students to this day use "enormous" (by phone standards) scientific and graphing calculators.
    In the professional space, mechanics, electricians, and the like use multimeters and OBD scanners and all sorts of handheld equipment a phone manufacturer would sneer at, but their customers use with no problem.
    I want a reasonably thick phone with an excellent battery that can drop five feet to the ground with no issues. Is that too much to ask?

    You've been spoiled with tech. That's all! You were born into this, I saw it all from the beginning. It more than a phone, I don't need a laptop. 12gb of ram , ON A PHONE!? not trying to change your mind, that's just my opinion. Thank you!

    I agree that you can easily get exhausted with smartphones and that exhaustion isn't because of Apple's innovative boxy style but it's because smartphones including iPhones are still expensive while Androids are much affordable. Whilst the Apple heads present the idea that it is due "Competition still using the same apple design", the truth is that Apple introduced a 1000$ smartphone that created a ripple effect for great smartphones to become cheaper. Surely, why should someone upgrade to the note 10 at 1000 when they can buy the S9+ at 300-500$?

    No headphone jack is always a dumb move. It’s always good to have, without this the Note is not a Pro device (which it claims to be)

    Smartphones are just a basic need nowadays, although having the best of the best is not worth it anymore.
    Almost anyone could do with a mid-range devices nowadays.

    Companies like Apple and Samsung need to go to a 24 month product cycle. This would be better for the company and the consumer. They would have time to build something more innovative, time to work out issues and it would be long enough for consumers to get bored of their phones and want something new.

    Honestly, I'm still rocking my Turbo 2 and I'm enjoying it. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that all these newer phones have and I perfectly fine with that. Why upgrade to something that has a pop up camera or can fold? That's not enticing for me to jump ship.

    So glad you guys are talking about this. I was wondering if I was the only one feeling this way. Smartphones are getting boring and I actually think that's okay.
    Great smartphones design was like a gold rush starting with the first iPhone. Now they're all pretty awesome. Now everyone has a smartphone. I think that's a good thing! These companies rode that wave and enjoyed mile high profits but now they'll have to figure out a new way to provide value.
    I think it's toxic to try to convince a public to buy phones every year. It's a tool. Let's start treating it like one.

    I think that Samsung phones that unfolds into a tablet is really cool. I have been waiting for them to make something like that for years, well that and maybe a phone that projects holographic images or something like that. It really is cool but I hear it has some major bugs at this point, plus it's $2000. But a couple generations in, once it becomes more mainstream I think it will be a really cool phone. But I definitely get where he is coming from, the iphone for example hasn't been exciting for years, they don't really innovate they only iterate which is super boring. I often wonder if the iphone or Apple products in general would be more exciting if Steve Jobs was still around?

    I think the next BIG innovation in smartphone world can be integrating the Front Camera underneath the screen in such a manner that people can maintain eye contact while making a video call. It is a largely ignored/underrated issue that discreetly irritates everyone of us a bit but hasn’t been addressed yet. “Why isn’t he looking in my eyes while talking?” or “Hey why are you looking downwards ?” BECAUSE “looking into your eyes makes me miss out the entire crux of having a video call as I can not look at you face !!”
