    Every product is eventually boring. Cars have been the same for decades now. What do you want, a 6 wheels car? Why? The real improvements are better performance, better materials, and more efficient electronics. Revolutionary stuff like the iPhone was, kind of, will happen when cars start to fly and smartphones disappear into our bodies. Until then, the market is already, as you said, mature. Only small upgrades will happen from now on.
    What I want soon? Fast screens, 100-200hz displays.

    In a few months nobody will care about the Note 10, upgrading every year is such a waste of money. I don't buy phones based off hypes anymore. The note 9 will still be enough for me.

    Only tech UScliprs feel this way because they need to create content and rely on the industry for clicks. They try literally every phone while consumers are perfectly content with everything smart phones have to offer now. We don’t need a game changer yet. Give it a few years.

    I think we should make our phones attach to our wrists so we do not have to use a hand to hold it while doing day to day activities plus women will not loose it all the time. I also think whoever decided womens cloths should have tiny or fake pockets should be shot

    Yes, phones are way too rectangular.
    Always the same, just a little bit different from the others. Back when BlackBerry was popular, that was a fun time for phones

    Just a thought but maybe the future of smartphones will be more focused on software rather than the hardware. There are endless possibilities when it comes to creative ways to fully utilize the hardware we already have.

    I think it's kinda pointless, in my opinion.
    See, there is a "flavour" of smartphones for everyone: there are entry-level, mid-range, upper mid-range, sort of low-end-flagships and flagships. In the past, you didn't have much choice.
    Some people like plastic back covers, there are phones with this material; some people like metal, there are phones with this material; some people like glass backs, there are phones with glass backs; there are blue phones, green phones, red phones, different colour shaded phones, mat finish, gloss finish, etc...
    So, it's like laptops: all laptops fold and their design is pretty much the same. But I think each has its own elements that separate them from one another.

    This video is for the sole purpose of views. UScliprs have been putting out less and less creative and interesting content lately and this is one of those less creative, for views-sake videos. That's where all this "staleness" is: popular USclip channels.

    Go to lesser-known channels and you will find better, more interesting and creative content.

      Same here. It was my first smart phone since the iPhone 5 in 2013. I got the S8 in 2017 and everything basically looks just the same now. I'm still using the S8 and I don't even plan in upgrading it anytime soon.

    The only thing interesting in the note 10 is the graphene battery. Other then that I'm with you. If anything I hope these Earth saving batteries become more popular. I wish Android manufacturers would stop ripping Apple off. I miss physical keyboards so much. I miss the sidekick 4g.

    My first cell phone I bought was around '04/'05 was the Moto Razr. The first smartphone ever was the Moto Cliq in '10. I was into Android since then and Soo anti Apple. Well fast forward nearly 10 years and mostly all Galaxys later, I'm now on my second iPhone (Xr) after two years with the beautiful 7plus. I don't plan to upgrade anytime soon. Yes that feeling has left where a phone was interesting. Now Android phones have become too slim and tall to my taste where I used to mock the iPhone 5 for..

    When these phones hit $1100+ so easily.......that was it for me. I waited 6 months after the S8+ and was able to grab one for $440. I’ll wait for 6 months after the note 10+ and grab one for $500

    Well Huawei was a player to innovate the smartphone industry with its one of a kind foldable phone alongside Samsung. Unfortunately the US has since banned it... so it seems to me that Americans are happy to stick to whatever Apple dictates as "innovation".

    What It's absurd is when people face unlock on a secure envyronment... you know, you can have the phone without any security and just use the power button to turn on the screen...
    More practical security method is the fingerprinter sensor at the back

    I'm getting the Pixel 4 when it comes out, but I agree.
    Companies releasing smartphones every year makes it seem like they're just in a rush to get it out the door.
    Software is where it's at for me. Every time I watch one of Google's I/O, I get excited with what software is coming to Pixel.
    But what stings is that you have to buy the latest and greatest hardware to get the latest and greatest software. I love the Pixel's software, but I also like Apple's "keep your phone longer" commitment.
    It's not gonna make me switch back to an iPhone, but I wish companies would put the customers first.

    This video explains exactly how I've been feeling about phones, I recently baught a redmi note 7 as a daily and I love it, it has its hicups since it is a 200$ phone but for 90% of what I need a smartphone for the note 7 can fulfill my needs for a fraction of the price of these flagships
