  • Honestly, I kind of hope that phones will have a stagnation in the near future. I feel compelled to buy a new phone every 2 years because of the changes in hardware and software. But with my previous phone, a galaxy a30s, I was pretty close to not wanting a new phone for a long while. Until that phone I always felt like there's room for improvement even in the midrange category. Before that, i had a 5 something inch lg. Kinda small, the screen-to-body ratio not that great, cameras were very rudimentary. Oh, and an ips screen, and not a good one at that. The a30s had an amoled display, bigger battery, bigger screen, nicer screen to body ratio and 3 decent cameras on the back. It was the first time I felt like if I am to upgrade to a new phone in 2 years it won't be to cover any profound shortcomings, it will be simply to keep up with the newest features and designs. Now I did end up changing that phone in less than an year, because I gave the "old" one to my mother. And now, I have an awesome Xiaomi whose only shortcoming I can find is it has, once again, ips display. Other than that... It's made of glass, 4 cameras on the back, main is 64mp. 6gig ram, 128 storage. 700 series Snapdragon. All for little below 300€. At this point, honestly, only foldable phones seem to be enough of a game changer to make me wish for another phone soon. I mean comparing this phone to 2018 flagships, those are only better in specific details. Overall, I feel like the industry hadn't changed much in the past 2 years save for, as I said, foldable phones, which are way too early in their development and way too expensive to present any interest. Maybe 5-6 years down the line.

  • At the time, I bought a Samsung Galaxy Note 8... The company put such hype on the phone I payed more than 1000 $ but now that I have a midrange phone... Yeah, the note was cool and everything but if a Xiaomi can do the work for less than half the price, I'm choosing it. I only miss the Galaxy camera, the battery life was very short and the headphone and charger jack just didn't worked past a year. I regret paying that much for that phone

  • I have had 4 different "budget" prices phones from 4 different years since I got my first phone, and although all of them were around the same price when I got them, the newest one is still leagues better than the old ones, despite being the cheapest one so far at $99. Even though my phone isn't even a midrange, it has all the features that I use on a regular basis and a decent camera for just taking selfies or pictures of my art and runs everything pretty quickly (although I've never had a more expensive phone to compare so maybe its actually slow, definitely faster than my older phones). Sometimes it has a few hiccups, but hey, it's $99. A midrange phone would literally be a flagship to me so I can't even imagine getting an actual flagship phone haha. Seeing how fast technology is improving and how accesible and cheap perfectly decent smartphones can be is super inspiring.

And since it was not super popular I cant find a screen protector that works with my phone. The high end ones dont made note 8 protectors anymore and they cheap amazon ones reduce my touch sensitivity and dont adhere well.

  • Older flagship > New flagships and midranges Seriously, flagships now has soo many new useless features, you better off just get an old one. It also crushes midranges in terms of performance, build quality, camera, waterproofing, and so much more, and sometimes it's cheaper than current midranges.. Except the software support won't last longer.. I really wish Samsung would support their flagships for years like Apple did...

  • This is completely correct, I've noticed personally rather than getting the flagship, (Galaxy s5,7, OP5/T) I went for the OnePlus 7T less than 3 months ago - Not a bad phone by any means but lower market than say the pro model, Or the 8 series but is an amazing phone - Even 2 years ago I wouldn't consider getting anything midrange due to the feature sacrifice but it constantly suprises me how good the new midranges from China are.

  • I didn't buy a flagship phone and possibly never will because of how easily phones break and how easily they can be lost. I don't want to have a nervous breakdown every time my phone falls or whenever I touch my pocket and don't feel my phone there. Flagships are awesome but paying $1000 for something that will only hurt me is just being dumb (unless of course that kind of money is not much of a problem for you)

  • What makes a phone affordable is paying for a contract. In the UK it is considerably cheaper to get an iphone 11 on contract even 24 months are added up than to buy the phone outright and get a separate contract just for the simcard. I can get an iphone 11 with 20gb of data for £36 pounds a month and a free phone. I can afford £37 a month. I cannot afford £700+ outright for a smartphone.
