Vegetaholic, 22 Jun 2019Absolute nonsense. K20/pro they dont offer smae quality or same spec, simple s10 is way better... moreMan thats not true.
On a benchmark K20 pro preformed better than S10 or S10 plus or even S10 5G.
In camera test is just a little bit worse.
And add-ons such as bixby or Samsung ui or water resistance are not worth the price difference of K20 pro and S10 plus which is 700 bucks.
And since xiaomi is no small company which was in 2009 and just for chinese people their quality also increased a lot.
I am sure is on par wuith other brands flagships.
And i would rather have xiaomi K20 pro than a S10 plus even given me for free i would preform xiaomi over Samsung just because the 700 bucks could help some other poor family or people.
CptPower, 02 Jun 2019S10 is definitely not the best phone already killed for example by K20 pro by xiaomi the true ... moreAbsolute nonsense. K20/pro they dont offer smae quality or same spec, simple s10 is way better in most comparisons. But what k20 series has is amazing price for what you get. They are not better than top brand flagships, but are alternatives for cheap to top brand flagships. Which is definitely great
Kuba, 04 Jun 2019I hate phones getting bigger. The only acceptable phone in 2019 so far is Samsung S10e. small ... moreThrow in the a40, very similair dimensions to the s10e. Perhaps these phones will spark a trend for compact phones. Imagine a phone with a 5inch screen the size of the iPhone se.

Brand new S9+ when was released cost from 999 and higher euros depends on storage and ram used.
Just 6 months after initial sale. Month before Xmas the same device which manufacturing cost were 379 dollars cost in Samsung store 549 euros and the basic S9 was for 449 euros.
Please dont try to tell me the phone cost went this low. More than 50% if for example Apple X after just 6 months has been reduced in price by maybe 100-200 bucks not more.
Kuba, 04 Jun 2019I hate phones getting bigger. The only acceptable phone in 2019 so far is Samsung S10e. small ... moreI want the S10 with a 5 inch screen. Keep the 3400MhA battery.
Or the Oneplus 7 with a 5 inch screen. With the HTC One 4.7inch screen I thought this is a really good size. Next phone suddenly had to have a 5.1 inch screen. The next phone suddenly had to have a 5.8 inch screen. And now the 10e is the smallest you can get but it is still a phablet.
Blame those people that want to use the phone instead of a real computer or laptop :(

CptPower, 03 Jun 2019Man since when price guarantee quality??? Look how much cost Note 7 and how it ended. Or ga... moreI uh, never said that "flagship killers" were necessarily bad in quality but just cheap in price and usually comes with the lastest and greatest SD 8-series chips
CptPower, 03 Jun 2019Maybe its not 100% equal but all you named doesnt cost 1000 more bucks.
Thus K20 pro is the ... moreOne device is much cheaper because it is much cheaper to be made, not because company wanted to sell it cheaper.
Only the components used to make S10+ for example cost $420. Then you add Research/Development, workforce, taxes, patents licensing , marketing and distribuition.
If Redmi costs less than $400 , it means the phone costs much less to be made. Imdoubt it costs to Xiaomi more than $200.
3.5mm Jack Fetishist, 03 Jun 2019"Flagship killer" is just another buzzword for "cheap phone with the latest Snapdragon 8xx chipset""Flagship" is just another buzzword for an 1000$ phone with nothing special and lower specs

Thus K20 pro is the winner.
S10+ 5G is only for those who can
1. Afford it.
2. Can use all its featuures and add-ons
Because i really dont think carrying Samsung because its a top 1 brand makes anyone more clever or sparkling among others. Samsung is no status symbol anymore.
PapaRafe, 03 Jun 2019I also definitely agree. I was thinking phone makers will stop at 6.2"but no they keep pushing... moreNo I want 7 inch 90hz 4k 5500 mAH phone and it will be the most perfect phone
Dometalican, 02 Jun 2019TBH, we need to get back to our roots. This bezeless trend is supposed to make small phones (l... moreI also definitely agree. I was thinking phone makers will stop at 6.2"but no they keep pushing to the point which it is impractically and too big a phone:(
Android Q side swipes acting as a back button, swipe texting, gaming in portrait mode needing swipes, apps with side menus all with no bezels is NOT a good combination.
I was unknowingly a guinea pig for swipe gestures starting with webOS to Android. It gets annoying. I believe Google will bring back the back button once the outcry of Q's back gesture gets despised by so many early adopters.
It's cool to see the Essential Phone be the champ at something for 2017 but this bezel-less trend brings nothing practical for us. And they start look the same anyway. Same slab. Some have notches, some don't.
No wonder the market has declined for years. Reliant on cosmetic gimmicks.
Whackcar, 02 Jun 2019LG G2 was a legend. It was the most perfect phone of it's time. Brilliant display, fast perfor... moreI agree, and LG V35 I'm using now is the G2 in modern bezelles look.
6.0" screen size, Compact enough to be compared with 5.2" G2 back then :)
Meh. The Samsung might have thinner side bezels but it still has that ugly punch-hole camera. I wouldn't mind thicker side bezels than getting Samsung's atrocious punch-hole devices.
3.5mm Jack Fetishist, 03 Jun 2019Remember when Oppo claimed that the Reno has a 93% STB ratio but turns out to only have 86.6%,... moreI think the Chinese brand keep forgetting they need to count the percentage of the power button and volume button at the side as STB as well. It bulging out from the side doesn't mean you can discount it. That's why they keep calculating their screen with higher STB. I know it call screen-to-body ratio for a reason. But, seriously do we really just calculate the screen? From what I see we calculate the front view of phone regardless if the bezel actually thicker when viewed from the side elevation; curved screen for example.
