Premium prices for Premium people
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2020Prices went up only in Samsung, Apple and other greedy companies products that want to profit ... morePrices go up, because companies like Apple and Samsung spend money on research and have to answer to shareholders (who want profits).
Huawei has to answer to China's communist party, too, and has to keep prices low in order to gain users in price-sensitive markets where privacy, security concerns and Google compatibility are secondary to price, and where regulators don't have the will or the power.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2020I don't think so. Only the lower version will mostly come out with discounts. The bigger versi... moreI highly doubt that. The bigger battery size, the camera and the new snapdragon will keep up the price for at least 6 months.
RIP, 21 Jan 2020it's going to drop to 80% of that anyway after 1-2 monthsBy the end of the summer quarter it will be around 80-75% of the price, yes. Within ten months S10 Plus has dropped to astonishing 60% of the original asking msrp, that's quite drastic. On contrary the poorest sales performing flagship of 2019 Xperia 1 has suffered only 35% loss in price so far.

This technology should not be implemented yet. It was rushed and there are reports of many side effects. Some true, some false. But the weak signal confirms that it's years too early for 5G.
Ridiculous, and no headphone Jack?

RIP, 21 Jan 2020it's going to drop to 80% of that anyway after 1-2 monthsI don't think so. Only the lower version will mostly come out with discounts. The bigger versions will less upto 200 bucks..
KebabSLO, 21 Jan 2020Oh great, i am really looking forward to having a 5G towers every 100 metters in every area. ... moreWell all premium devices with 5g capability will also have a strong 4g network modem. And going to the future you have to take step at the early stage. The spectrum range is weaker doesn't mean it won't stop giving its servers. This is one of most invested site now.. So don't worry about weaker range..
The prices are now insane and then they wonder why less phones are sold each year...

And in Europe don't expect discounts. Here carriers do not subsidize them like in USA, they only offer you installment payment with interest.
These prices make Apple look like a way better deal since you get 3 more years of OS updates than with Samsung...
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2020Hahahaha look how stupid you are saying 5g useless! When it's the future! By 2022 there will b... moreOh great, i am really looking forward to having a 5G towers every 100 metters in every area.
5G is a future yes, but it's in early stages. Who would want a singal that can get interrupted by a single tree or a corner ?
Then there is also the thing about 5G being bad for environment, us and animals.
I don't know how much of it is true, but it can't be good for anything if there are so many towers in one small area.
The last redemption for Samsung could be giving a reasonable discount to areas where only Exynos version will be available since they're going to have to deal with worse version of the full Snapdragon variant, a.k.a. 'oh our contract is ending but we still need to get rid of the last CPUs'.
KebabSLO, 21 Jan 2020Stupid useless over rated 5G...
Prices of phones went up by about 20 % just because of 5G.
N... morePrices went up only in Samsung, Apple and other greedy companies products that want to profit the 5G to do that. On the other hand. Xiaomi, Huawei and others will release phones with 5G as cheap as $150 this year. So the 5G is not an excuse to increase prices and of course not useless.
If you are angry because the increase in prices, go against those greedy brands, not against the 5G itself. And also not buy their products to vote with your walled closed. You'll have cheaper and/or more reasonable alternatives in other brands. Less if you are one of those that can't live without X or Y brand and logo in your pocked or to show it.
1000€ or $ for a Samsung device??? hahahahahha
Crazy, people dont buy this at this price, go to an Iphone 11 or 12.
