Standy, 23 Apr 2019Guys, how come you call 5.8 inch display "small" ? I'm still running oldschool 5.5" and it som... moreYour old school 5.5" phone could actually be bigger in hand than this 5.8" one.
Even though it is 5.8" that is at a 19:9 ratio, so a typical 16:9 video on your 5.5" quite similar to this 5.8" one.
All these new aspect ratios and no one really setting any standard.
Take my wife's 5.99" (18:9) screen, it is similar in the ":9" part as a 5.5", only stretched. At the same time, my 6.39" (19.5:9) is similar to a very stretched 5.5" and far from my old 6.4" which was in a 16:9 aspect ratio

The samples from iPhone Xr clearly looks better than those coming out of S10e to me, at least in this comparison.
"It's fine for basic app usage but any sort of multimedia applications, such as photos, videos or games, aren't as enjoyable on this screen."
I stopped reading after this.
Guys, how come you call 5.8 inch display "small" ? I'm still running oldschool 5.5" and it somewhere near good. Not perfect, but good, so i assume 5.8 will be the same at least.

Of course nobody says so, but going by your logic as long as it has "P" in its name it can be considered as a part of Huawei's flagship lineup. The naming scheme has nothing to do with whether the phone is the true flagship of the company or not, you only should look at its specs to see if it's the case. I'll ask you again, do you seriously think the regular P30 is Huawei's flagship phone when it's inferior to P30 Pro in almost every single possible way on paper?

The Xr does not even have a full HD display, as JerryRig likes to point out. It does not deserve to be called a budget flagship phone.

Even Huawei no mention at all about P30 Lite during P30/Pro launching event

And Xr is definitely not a midranger, it's in fact a lot closer to the true highend phones than Mi 9.

Do you consider the regular P30 as Huawei's flagship even though it skimps out lots of features that the Pro variant carries? I don't. With your logic P30 Lite is also a flagship because it has "P" naming to it, when it's obviously not.
Also, as for S10 5G, clearly it's going to be sold as more of a "limited edition" that you can experience the future connection technology with, rather than Samsung's true flagship.
BornInEU, 22 Apr 2019"There isn't even a contest" ... actually, yes there is a "contest" and the rest of the phones... moredid you even read this article? iPhone XR is midrange but S10e is not? Is that what you are saying. iPhone XR, great build quality, CPU and GPU performance comparable with the very best. Camera very good, generally on par with S10e when considering still and video. Battery life similar. iPhone XR is far from mid range
A friend of mine just bought S10e. When comparing both the front and rear camera results with my Pixel 1 XL's, i find that the pixel has better sharpness and color depth. I could be biased or maybe i'm just used to my phone camera's result.
I was interested in the S10e as an upgrade, not so much now.

The XR's display is a no-go for me: when watching content like 16:9 photos in either portrait or landscape mode in full screen, you see those ugly, bright gray borders... also, the notch's hight is not the same as the hight of header of apps (ie. the upper bar), which looks very strange (even if you don't have OCD)
BornInEU, 22 Apr 2019"There isn't even a contest" ... actually, yes there is a "contest" and the rest of the phones... moreYou kind of overlook he fact that the XR is running iOS, which in turn makes this “midrange” act and perform better than any best flagship coming from the android world.
Smartphone = hardware + software + updates + data security + user experience + customer support + retained value
Smartphones are not just hardware.
dafo446, 22 Apr 2019you remember the Samsung S5 it have headphone jack, removable battery AND IP67!
you remember ... moreAgreed. S5 was the pinnacle of smartphone engineering. Any phone with a removable battery could practically outlast the ones from nowadays using spare batteries. Plus, that IP rating showed Samsung was the producer of the Nokia 3310's level of smartphone durability
Sure, there are some unnecessary things they came up with like curved screens and the failures they faced with Note7 and now, the Galaxy Fold, but these show that there's no other brand that has the balls to face failure like Samsung. That's something the overly-hyped Chinese brands like Huawei and Xiaomi didn't do, such a description belongs to BBK Electronics (for bezelless display) and Royole (the first fold-out type foldable phone)
Right now, the Galaxy Fold earned the title of first fold-in phone, even at the cost of a wreck, and it has the potential of becoming much more practical than fold-outs. All they have to do is endure the hatred and keep on innovating
