Ohh but at least we have a new entry (finally). So really well done to the newly launched Essential PH-1, (in brief, just to mention one single point, I like its innovative Front 4K rec. And hopefully Samsung will include it as well in the Note 8). Again like all the previous weeks, definitely well done to Samsung for the S8 (duo), OVERALL, it is a true fantastic phone (I really like mine, haha). But although that, hopefully Samsung will correct all its lacks, etc, ... for/with the Note 8. Well done as well again, to Xiaomi, great value for money phone and especially great battery. And I'm again slightly impressed, how again non of the other top dogs (flagships) are in the top rankings, the XZ Premium, G6, P10 duo and even the U11. Slightly weird, because after all they deserve a place somewhere in the list. But so it seems that apart for the S8 duo, etc, customers in general prefer more the value for money phones than the high-end flagships but with a high-end prices as well.
We have reached a state where year on year updates only add incremental changes. Don't see any groundbreaking innovation these days especially in terms of software.
This article and stats are pure waste. I am regular user of this site where I check it many times a day. I never found the essential phone on the list. It was there when it was announced, then went away within this week. The users can easily see the top phones at the home page. So what this article can tell users is like, how interest in a phone surged because of it announcement or launch, why the interest dropped immediately, which manufacturers are getting more hits like that. Or a weekly review of the phone market like what is announced this week, what is launched, what is expected next week etc. Else this is one wasted article.
