sorry man, i would, so long as i can afford, rather wish to have an expensive phone that has excellent expandability (like 3.5mm, latest microSD slot spec, etc.), warranty and durability than a cheap phone that wears out within 1~2 years.
I'm really surprised that people care about usless camera modules more than in box accessories. Well, it's the "social media" generation. That explains it.
excuse me Sirs, where is the "NOTCH NO MORE" option?
I can't believe that with 6 options you did not include this one.
Another clickbait article but this time I'm fine with it. It seems like the manufacturers want to screw us over and see how much they can get away with.
No mentioning of 1000$+ phones? But I guess this trend already started in 2019.
I agree with all the points, apart from the plastic one. No idea why there's so much hate. I find a glass phone slippery and easy to break, making the phone case a requirement.
Forhad1000, 27 Dec 2020Where is the submit button? I can't submit my opinion from GSMArena App 😑Rotate your screen and you will see the "submit" button,
I like/want: A good battery (minimum 4000mah), a very good charger (minimum 30W), a decent display (lcd or oled doesn't matter), minimum 90Hz refresh rate, a fairly capable chipset (minimum 300,000 in Antutu), good software optimisation without any unnecessary apps and gimmick animations. Max 400EUR. I found this in my 200EUR Realme 6.
The rest I don't care and I found them useless (IP rating, perfect cameras, wireless charging, gorilla glass 100 protection, 2k/4k displays, HDR1000+ displays, always on display, tuned by granny speakers, premium design with glass back and metallic frame, small display dimensions like below 6").
Worst smartphone trends from the worst to less worse according to me
1. Curved screens
2. No headphone jack
3. Thick chin
4. Useless macro/depth sensors
Ironamdrei, 27 Dec 2020You forgot „dropping thr headphone jack!!!!“It's too late to save that. Already gone from almost all flagships (except LG & a few Sony phones). If you people really cared about it, you should've made a backlash when these companies were killing the feature.
Not having the basic accessories in the box should've been number 1... but i guess the Apple crowd helped make it number 2 instead.
Also, useless cams need to go (macro, depth, etc). Small batteries are no longer acceptable (cap the charging to 30w if needed, but keep the batteries larger). Getting rid of telephoto camera is fine if you can replace it with periscope one instead. Plastic chassis is acceptable on midrangers, but unacceptable on flagships. Compact flagships disappeared a while ago, so it's too late to talk about them.
So, more people are bothered about presence of useless cameras which do not impact your usage by any means, than about other trends which actually DO impact your usage?...
I think an honorable entry would be the folding phones, you'd be surprised by the result.
I used many phones with tele lens, most of time in low light situation the phone uses the main sensor instead of the tele lens for zoom, it is nice to have but unnecessary.
The most important lens to me is ultrawide one, which I use it 60% of time, it is very handy in many situations.
How can you prefer not having a macro cam rather than biggrr batteries?
