2019 Austin: All smartphones are too similar and I'm pretty sure that in 2020 it's the same thing.
2020 Austin: I have both Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Samsung Galaxy Fold from my time.
2019 Austin: Well, I'm wrong. I guess phones won't be as boring as I tough.
Edit: Dammit, the Samsung Galaxy Fold came out in 2019. Whoops...

They have become a commodity, a very expensive one, which no longer lets us replace batteries or use $4 earphones, difference are now slight and incremental AND HUGELY EXPENSIVE.

Of COURSE someone who gets to review/use almost every new device out there, nothing short of the most cutting edge new tech will be exciting! Most of us are lucky to get a new midrange every 2 years, let alone a flagship or a new device every year! I'd kill to have a Poco F2, OnePlus 7T, or even this new TCL 10Pro, as they all make my prepaid Stylo4+ look stupid!

Doesn't matter. Just about all smartphones are slabs of glass with little to no distinction from one another. And it's been that way for several years now.

A huge leap would be having a phone with a much better antenna. A good enough antenna to pick up signal from miles away.
It could be done im sure, people are inventing things all the time.

to me, the cameras are always going to be impressive for me, the wide angles and picture quality keep getting better, also the foldables were pretty surprising, but besides that im not to excited when a new phone releases

If you really care about camera technology then you're in luck, just about the only thing that changes with today's glass slabs are the cameras. For those that don't really care about the cutting edge camera technology and having 4 cameras on the back, there isn't much to look forward to

Both wearing apple watch talking about note 10. Atleast it has a different design. Look at iPhone 11. Same design as 2017 iPhone X and display from 2014 😂
EnterTheFatrix - 3 måneder siden
So I feel like the question of whether the iPhone killed phone designs is an incomplete one.
Did the iPhone kill phone designs, or did the pursuit of capitalising on a successful design by other companies kill phone designs?
I feel like, yes other companies could have continued to compete with apple’s design, but at the same time could’ve been no, and kept with their own designs. Maybe that would’ve tanked their companies, but perhaps that wouldn’t have lead to stagnant phone designs today.

In an ideal market, aside from just bland looking slabs of glass which is just about all we can choose from now, instead we could have wider square phones (like BB Passport), portrait sliders (like BB Priv), landscape sliders (like F(x) Tec Pro 1), foldables, etc etc

I'm getting the galaxy note 10 plus tomorrow and my parents said that that would be the last phone they would pay for me. I'm totally fine with that because I don't need minor upgrades every year. I'm sure the galaxy note 10 plus can survive for 4 years without becoming way behind in big smartphone changes. I totally agree with Austin.

I got a note 10 plus in im still not satisfied. I come to realize this phone company's make the same phone over in over again with a bigger screen every year. When i said something about my note 10 plus ppl thought i was trippin lol
Naw i aint trippin. It just my phone is not worth 1,100 dollars!!! Idc how new it is. Fuck that

Every phone is a boring looking piece of glass now. It's partially the manufacturer's fault for not making something different, but also the consumer's faults for buying only slabs when other options were available

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 last time I was truly excited for a phone was in 2015 with the BlackBerry Priv. Having that full keyboard and full 16:9 AMOLED display was game changing. Then came the Snapdragon 808 and ruined everything.

Not sure how much we can call those "options" if everything is a glass slab.

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.
