Today I want to talk about a major problem in today’s phone world. Phones are getting more expensive every year and they are not improving that much! We humans have to realize something. We have hit a peak with phones. You really no longer need a “high-end” phone these days you can go for 100 euro smartphone and you won’t miss anything magical. You can get the Xiaomi Redmi 4A Quad-core smartphone for less than 120 euro!
And Xiaomi creates quality smartphones. Why ever pay for a branded phone? I would understand it if we would have seen a lot of innovation on the gaming side of phones. But we haven’t seen any epic 3D game come out for years on phones! What we see more is companies lowering the graphics so everyone can play new games.
The first phone is a phone that came out last year but still cost half a leg. Google Pixel XL smartphone 32GB currently cost 900 euro in Finland. Which is a joke! Soon we will have the Google Pixel XL 2 come out. How much will that one be priced at 1500 euro? Google phones are overpriced like a joke. It feels a little bit like the Google Glass fiasco. Is the google phone only suppose to be for pretentious people?
The second overpriced phone is the iPhone X. 1000 euro for a locked operating system. And they even removed the fingerprint sensor and added glass. And not just that but an ugly 3GS glossy design returns! No innovation here.
The bezel-less display Android phones did first with Xiaomi Mi Mix. And now Xiaomi has Mi Mix 2 coming out for half the price of an iPhone X. Apple is too overrated and hasn’t done any cool UI update since 2013. Only been on stagnation after iOS 7.
The last overpriced phone is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8! 1000 euro! And Samsung does this after 2 failed Note phones. One that wasn’t even released in Europe, the second that was just about to launch but then it got battery problems and had to be replaced (Talking about the Note 7). The last good Note was Galaxy Note 4 because it came with a removable battery. That was a major part of the charm with Samsung. They cared about the customer. Letting them have customize options.
Now they are more turning over to an elitist brand with bad software since the Galaxy S6 got introduced. Usually very glitchy software and the glass back on the new phones break easily so you need a case for the phones.
They also overheat many times. Been waking up many times to a hot Samsung phones. This is both S phones and A phones it’s been happening with! Also with this price-range nobody will be able to experience Note phones because few have that level of money.
