Ids that what we call getting thicker than there 5 year old designs without increasing batteries. And using uglier designs than their really old device lines? Ok...1080p At 960fps.
But Samsung's f1.5 variable aperture doesn't count. No. That's just a gimmick because Samsung did it. But everything Sony did was innovation. Like removing the headset jack.
None of them are up there in terms of innovation. Sure by the news s9 of advancing things Abe the technology. But not on pure innovation. Slow mo video? Nothing new. Hd recording? Samsung did that. Taking pictures? Samsung did that too. Hope that one rests your heart out when you Abe your friends try and claim Samsung in copying Sony in camera when Sony and everyone using one are copying Samsung.
Variable aperture? Not new.
New big Nokia?
Dual cameras, crappy designs, glass slabs, 3d scanning?? Nothing really new or groundbreaking here. We are more in the age of refinement. And sony clearly isn't leading that either. Though sadly they easily could be.

Where is the quantum improvement in camera that you touted earlier? Heck, Sony used the exact same camera as the XZ1.
It has now come to the part where we can only differentiate phone either from it's camera placement and company logo.. I mean yeah, hardware and software is a bit different from other phone but from the outside, most phone are basically the same now..I just vote for asus because ot it's highest spec (though we know spec don't mean anything in real life)..
Although I voted S9+ I dont believe there was any real worth it phone. In reality since Note 4 there is No breakthrough. Yes, Note 8 did much transfer, but I would still say that if my Note 4 didnt die completely I would have stayed with it

Anonymous, 04 Mar 2018If the phone is 50% thicker than others whilst having a smaller battery, then there is a problem.the problem is that those with more battery take less autonomy, By the way is s9 has less battery
Move on from this MWC already...
Oneplus, HTC, Huawei and others, your turn to shine...
P.s for me, Nokia 7 Plus would get my vote but it's not a flagship, so that's it...

Hayaan Mo Sila, 04 Mar 2018Will the XZ2 and XZ2 Compact be the best flagships if ever their redesign was good-looking?
I... moreyou see id rather give back half of those for a 3.5 mm jack.
Aspect ratio was changed to reduce bezels. yet their stb is less than galaxy a8 of all things? i dont care about the s9 level reduced bezels, but an one plus 5t level was attainable with kind of department they have. Sony prides itself on Audio yet they remove the port they were supposed to keep. really? i know its gonna become obsolete someday, But that wont be in next 2 years for sure.

Surprisingly many non tech people compalined about Android change (UI change). Majority of people (They rarely visit tech site) literally just want their phone to work with WA or take a beautiful selfie. We vocal minority complained about updates that hasnt been fixed for years! at least we have Pixel's, Kirin and soon Exynos only phone to break the 2year update curse. And btw the S9+ is cheaper than Pixel 2 XL at msrp and im even surprised Samsung reduced the price!
Give us a phone with 2 day battery life, since they are all sealed. Even when you spend 1K battery dies in an hour if you are taking pictures / shoot video all the time on holiday.
DamiDev, 04 Mar 2018bootloop is an old problem, related with G3 G4 and v10, all new LG phone are fine and underrated Yes, people are stuck on LGs bootloop, I have LG V20, never a problem like that.
Still no one to bring 4-20Hz to wireless sound with over 1400kbit+ stream for at least cd like uncompressed quality(wav, aiff uncompressed). Same for recording, 3D audio was long before on 830, and ~145dB was on 808. Slo mo without audio is also boring. Recording 4K at 60fps with mono audio crackling at loud concerts, and listening to compressed mp3/flac on 256GB of possible memory on wireless buds restricking data stream and frequency even more. None of them feel like flagship, more like gimmick. Missing lumias and jack.

Many customers that pay premium price expect premium everything, even though Samsung UI is packed with features.
I'm not into replika brand at all, but even those run Oreo. What do you think the customers feel about that? Envious? Mad? Upset? Cheated?
I'm not trying to spread hate, I voted for S9, but the price is too high.
We use smartphones for their software in the first place, not necessarily for their looks.
If Samsung will release updates in a reasonable amount of time, I'm going to get one too!

You pay a lot updates is very not good.
