      iPhone had the same design in front for 10 years. I really doubt they changed the phone designs

            For people like me we doubt we ever come across a phone over £500. So it doesn't matter if the phones get better and better. Mostly that is. Because the old ones get cheaper for us sometimes.

                The smartphone bubble is basically about to burst. Not in a catastrophic way necessarily but in a way that leads to something major coming out like maybe a refined version of the Samsung folding phone. Also tech companies need to realize that people don't want to always buy a new phone every year or two. Instead of trying to innovate in smaller increments with hardware, make minor improvements through software then, every four or five years, make a major hardware jump.

                      There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

                              Jep, same feeling here. Atm there is no reason to upgrade. Still rocking Pixel 2.
                              Back in Nexus days, i really had to get the new one, because it really brought something new to the table.

                                Honestly what is the point in apple making a new phone every year? I have a Motorola Z2 Play and it's been good to me for 3 years and no cracks or anything! Also, one of my friends dad has an IPhone 6 and it does everything he needs it to! I want to see a real game changer!

                                    Ah but you see planned obsolencence, a great phone that is crippled by software is the largest push to make people upgrade now days.

                                                Yup, after I brought my iPhone XS Max straight out that’s when I knew that this phone will indeed be my last phone for a while.
                                                Most people will upgrade to a newer phone for features that they’ll never really use all to upgrade again when the chances present themselves.
                                                Also most people will lease a phone with the highest gigs all to never use half of it and then upgrade again, waste of money.

                                                  I dont Know if it's the phones that are getting boring as much as its Tech Youtubers that are getting boring as they loose there enthusiasm and attention to detail in reviews. I've personally noticed several of the YouTube community misrepresenting devices giving out incorrect specs or leaving out features in their nonchalant reviews as of late.

                                                    The main problem with all tech Youtubers at the moment is the fact that they are focused solely on the exterior of the note vs the s10 and they fail to recognize the Software and hardware differences. Note has UFS 3.0 and 12gbps Lppdr4x Ram a S pen DeX on PC and S pen and its features etc. Stop being so critical and pay attention to the details. Sure I could have kept the note 9 for years but I wanted the future proofing of 5G and faster Storage and Ram as well as a bigger screen and faster charging

                                                      So if you're over smartphones, will you go back to having a basic flip phone?

                                                        The Note 10 really was the most disappointing smartphone in years...

                                                                          As far as design, I wouldn't mind a foldable the size of the DS XL. I grew up using Walkmans, CD players, and Gameboys; When did ¼-inch thick become a problem? College and high school students to this day use "enormous" (by phone standards) scientific and graphing calculators.

                                                                          In the professional space, mechanics, electricians, and the like use multimeters and OBD scanners and all sorts of handheld equipment a phone manufacturer would sneer at, but their customers use with no problem.

                                                                          I want a reasonably thick phone with an excellent battery that can drop five feet to the ground with no issues. Is that too much to ask?

                                                                                  I agree that you can easily get exhausted with smartphones and that exhaustion isn't because of Apple's innovative boxy style but it's because smartphones including iPhones are still expensive while Androids are much affordable. Whilst the Apple heads present the idea that it is due "Competition still using the same apple design", the truth is that Apple introduced a 1000$ smartphone that created a ripple effect for great smartphones to become cheaper. Surely, why should someone upgrade to the note 10 at 1000 when they can buy the S9+ at 300-500$?
