Most big brands made very expensive flagships... Now they are surprised sales go down...
Not sure about others but I personally die for a good upgrade but can't find one!
1.Software: Android at best lives for 3 years (after that phone is vulnerable to all kind of attack) so is it worth paying $1000 for only 3 yeatrs? I might be able to justify that if it is pure Android.
2.Battery: almost all new phones are as bad as my 5 year old phone, at least my phone has replacable battery! Besides, Android is still terrible at battery consumption.
3. Display: I hate nodge. There is 0 phone without a nodge and pure Android. (Android 1)
4. Camera: Did a side by side comparison and on many occasions my old phone takes better photos than a few new ones. Are mobile Cameras actually degrading in quality?!
So, it is not the Covid19 but it's just that to me an upgrade is not worth the money yet.
