Pricier than ever, but does the updates last more than 2 years?

LGs V20 actually has probably the most features out of this years flagships, (sans the Note7, since it is discontinued)

Aside from a shower chip the xperia to me seems to be a much better overall device.

The note 2 was a beast. Even now it's still a great phone and a better option to buy a used note 2 than going into a store for most Ave even buying a $200 phone.
And samsung more than any other company has the right to hither prices.
They spend the most on research and development, use higher tech more expensive parts, and whether you or people like it or not they have and put more money and time into more features and advanced software.
They are not happy that Google are charging a higher rrp with the Pixel range (especially when inferior to their own s7 range). They saw that the ignorant public perceive price/cost as the superior product (hence why iPhone's have established their 'superior' image). Google saw apple and thought lets out price apple and the ignorant public will think of our phones as 'elite'. Samsung are thinking we actually put a lot of tech into our phones and our profit margin is not as great as a inferior specced iphone or pixel, so why don't we raise our profit margin.
just give 3 years warranty and guarantee of updates for 3 years then charge $1200 NP.
