    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

    Watching Smartphone evolution since 20 years. Have never been as bored as currently. I hope the folding phone gets creative ideas instead of every company doing the same kind in 3-4 years...

    You can’t blame Apple for other people copying them that’s like blaming the smart kid when other people copy off of them

    I’ve got the XS MAX 256GB and I’m not upgrading as I’m very happy with it. No point. Going to go sim free and see how long it lasts.

    This is what I've been saying for years now 😁 Phones basically became home appliances. And almost nobody gets excited about fridges, microwaves or washing machines.

    I'd trade in all the thinness and sexiness for a headphone jack and a slide out keyboard.

      Check out the F(x) Tec Pro 1. It's a landscape slider with a keyboard and it has a headphone jack. Pre-orders are open now and the device is set to start shipping out by November

    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.

    The design as it is, is fine. A folding phone isn't the future. It's idiotic.

      I mean, if they make it thiner then it might be good. Like when its folded together it has the size of a normal one but you can also unfold it if you get what Im trying to say here xD

    I see where you are going, back in 2011 Sony brought out the Xperia lineup and I was super excited to get the new Xperia Play, I'm mostly into mobile gaming, retro gaming to be more exact, but, back in 2011 the mobile industry was still in the early stages, android 2.2, single core processors, etc. But, despite all this I had high hopes for the Xperia Play, it sure was unique, with a physical controller adapted to the phone, stereo speakers and first gen snapdragon processor, it sure was ahead of its time, way to ahead unfortunatelly, it didn't do to well in the market and Sony left it behind, to bad, cause even after that, there was and still is a large comunity that has programed alot of emulators based around the Xperia Plays design, even today, with its low end profile it's still a good emulator mobile, Sony tried to enovate in design with the first gen of Xperia phones, but at the end decided to keep it "safe" and follow the crowd, I always hoped that Sony would reconsider the Xperia Play and brought back with todays high specs, that would bring a breath of fresh air to the mobile gaming comunity, guess i'll shop ebay for and old Play for old times sake.

    What's next is price, and especially in the US, there's a long way to go. Look at what you can buy new for $100 - Nearly nothing. $200 can get you some okay but $100 is basically out of the question. Realme has phones that come really close but they don't have any US lte bands. Honor was starting to put some heat on Moto but then Huawei got kicked out, leaving the budget and entry levels basically solely for Moto. Now moto no longer needs to push its prices down to competitive levels because there's no/very little competition.

    Glad I'm not the only one who notice their creating Mobile purposes by copying the "full screen resolution" design from iPhone, it sucks 'cause most of the phones now and then look exactly the same with the shapes and all that, they now basically making them no differences except some small addition. Nah, I'm still happy with my FE even 'till now.

    Hence I “downgraded” from an XR to an 8 and now to an SE. Smartphones are controlling our reality, they need to be put back where they belong! As a convenience and communicator NOT our only source of entertainment!
