    Commoditization = Super cheap but stale smartphones. Would you want that?

      Easy fix, 16x9, 5k,8k screens, also removable battery and expandable storage, granted this would just make customers happy, so they can keep their phone for a long long time. My current phone is the Razor phone 2, the only thing I don't like about it, is it has no removable battery, other than that, its a perfect phone, some people may hate a little on the camera/its good, but its not a pixel camera.

    They should keep bumping up the prices whilst giving minor upgrades.
    That will definitely skyrocket the smartphone sales.

      Because the majority of the people buy phones thats are not more than $300. That's where the real market is.

          i love having a phone thats good fast and have a good camera but i don't need a phone that will cost me over $1000 in 24 months + my plan...its just not worth it anymore. I'd rather build a pc to game on lol

            Oh thank goodness. I was worried we were going to have to keep buying the stupid things. I mean, we used to not have to keep buying them at one point. I remember it. I mean they didn't even exist. Then suddenly not only did they exist but then we've got to keep buying the stupid things. And not only that but even after you buy it you have to keep paying for it on a non-stop sort of basis or it stops working. And don't even get me started on the chronic charging requirements. Well anyway the endgame is near. Best news I've had in a long time!

                I wish all this R&D would pour into Laptops, instead of phones.
                I use my Cellphone to:
                Alarm / Clock
                Contact Info

                I use my Laptop to:
                Write / Edit Documents
                Watch Videos
                Search the Web
                Read the Web
                Download / Upload

                I wish my Laptop could do it all,
                via a Big Smart Watch
                a Tiny Bluetooth Earpiece
                and a USB Fast Charger,
                instead of a Fat Brick.

                  This couldn't be more wrong. Fact of the matter is that he saw sales for ONE quarter, most people don't buy $1000 phones mid may, such purchases are usually made during the holidays, which is why you see the zig zag sales chart BY QUARTER on 0:30. In fact I predict that in a mere 10 years phones will begin to replace desktop computers as some phones are now compatible with docks that allow for the addition of monitor keyboard and mouse.

                      After using 4 1000 dollar phones i switched to a 200 dollar know what except for may be a little bit of drop of camera quality, I don't really miss those fancy phones.. smartphones have evolved to a point where low and mid range phones can do pretty much the same things as more expensive phones do for a much lower price range with minimum compromises.i think for most people 200 or 300 dollar phone can do just as well

                                  They just pushed phone prices to stupid levels where they just aren’t a regular cycle upgrade like they used to be. I’m out of the premium phone market. Too much pointless tech shoe horned in to justify extreme pricing.

                                      Incorrect the endgame is near for iPhones!!!! You can buy a cheap Chinese $200 Android phone that's still better than the $1,500 iPhone

                                          Phones that compete on the market with the price is good for us and bad for companies.

                                            I've never paid more than $400 for a phone. I got my 7plus 128GB for $350 two years ago. I bought my lil bro a Pixel XL 128 GB for $300 two years ago. iPhone 6s for $175 two months ago. I have the Pixel 3a now. I purchased the HTC M8 and M9 off of eBay for about 300 each some years ago. 2 year old phones aren't that bad if you get ones with reliable updates. The only thing you have to do is get a battery replacement. We all have the same phones lol. Once the Pixel 4 is down to the 400-500 range, I may purchase it. These companies are out of control with prices.

                                              Phones are so similar that I would often mistake someone else's phone and try to pick it up, only to put it back down after I realize it's not mine.

                                                $300 will get you a very nice phone from Chinese makers like Vivo and Huawei, and Samsung saw this trend and was forced to respond with their new A-series to claw back market share. Beyond $300 diminishing returns take over very quickly.

                                                  after watching several Dave’s videos on Apple phones + others, I’m sure he’s a salesman for one plus products now, even tho he may deny it. I think those r good phs, just as Nokia + Samsung are. But I only need somtin around $130–$180 like Nok 4.2 or Galaxy A30 - for Web News, WApp Msg + YT. Anything dearer is overkill. Good luck Dave!

                                                    Huawei has the right idea!! ask for Samsung and iPhone stop selling people $150 units for 1100$

                                                      Solution stop releasing yearly phones with 3/4 cameras make drastic changes then only release a new phone. Old phones are already so good we don't need 16/32 cores smartphone

                                                        Well said mate 👍
                                                        Let me ask you this, the new ROG 2 phone from Asus, is it the right example to tackle this tough situation that you mentioned? Some say it's a bit overkill, a gaming phone indeed, but one must admit that it's a complete package at a heavily competitive price range.

                                                            I partially agree. Sure the market is saturated and people are not willing to spend so much money on a phone. But there always will be a huge part of consumers who buy smartphones as a status symbol . It's the same with cars and watches. Why so many people spend 3 grand on a Rolex when 10 $ Casios tell you the time as well?

They won't have that much benefits but either won't lose as much as now. I think every 3 years there should be a release of a new flagship so you can see some real improvements as they have more time to figure what it needs to be better than previous generation and not 98% the same

                                                                                      The reason is pretty obvious: The meaningful differences between flagships and entry level/mid-tier phones is much, much narrower now. Why pay €1000 for a phone when €250 gets you 90% of the hardware and performance?

We went from bricks to flip phones, slide out phones, etc and have been on touch screen ever since. Yeah 5G will probably cause a spike in sales again but really I think people are now buying as needed rather then a newest and the latest. We all just wait and watch reviewers get the phones but other than that? It's becoming a smaller demand
