  • Calling mid-rangers the best selling phones is a bit misleading. Best selling Androids for sure. But the best selling phones list is mostly dominated by iPhones

  • I think at some point smartphones in themselves will become a cheap necessity for normal existence. But AR wearables will replace them as the new norm. Just like fewer and fewer people use desktops and normal phones because you can do everything on your phone. At some point AR will become the norm, and smartphones are notoriously clunky at that. Contact lenses or glasses would be way better at that.

  • The only reason phones are cheaper now a days is because companies like Xiaomi and oneplus made smartphones cheaper ,especially Xiaomi who makes 500-800$ Flagship phones with A Grade components especially the Mi11 for 600$ is a bargain for what you get (sadly here it’s like 900$)

  • Because people who want flagships buy Iphones ,I know only 6 people with android flagships (700+) and 18 who have iPhones and the weird thing is the average price of an Iphone (from the people I know) is only 800$ compared to the android users who pay around 1300$ on average

  • Another problem is that the innovations are out there but may not make for a pretty sales display--like the Hisense A5 CC being an e-Ink display, or even the Yodaphone 3. Nobody wants to take a big risk, like T-Mobile did with Android years ago in the US, creating the Android explosion, so nobody is building phones to excel at certain use cases, like maybe a Sony Experia Adventure line (for outdoor adventuring), or Sony PSP line (obviously a gaming platform, they did try this but could only play Playstation 1 games. Needs to run games of quality of previous home console at minimum.) It's not like makers have to put all their eggs into one basket. Instead, let's differentiate each line of smartphones based on its intended use case.

  • IMO the best range now is $300 -$800. Yes I know it’s a massively wide range, but basically anything above or under is not necessary for the everyday person, unless you need to store like half a terabyte of data and a super fast chip at once.

    • Just pick a semi old flagship that's in your price range. Old flagships are still flag ships and still have fast processors, high quality cameras and other reasons it was a flagship when it released. Mrwhosetheboss did do a few comparison videos comparing 2018 flagships vs 2020 mid range phones. Spoiler, old flagships win.

  • My opinion on what phone the average person should get (at least for Android) are actually the year-old flagships rather than the midrangers. My thought behind this is that these phones (such as the oneplus 7 pro, note 10, pixel 4, etc.) all have great performance/panels/build quality still compared to the midrangers, along with the extra features that made them flashy and fun to begin with. The only caviots are a slightly deteriorated battery and 1 less year of software updates, but the fact that they were only made a year ago minimallizes both issues while carrying out everything stated beforehand for similar (and sometimes even less) prices.

  • Greetings from Orange County California. Been with LG for 8 years. Had the G4 the G6 and the V40. This time around, As LG was not offering a form factor that I liked, i went with Samsung with the Galaxy A71 5G. They don't do everything the way I would like it done, but basically, as a non gamer, it meets my needs just fine. But I only went with it over the S20FE because I got the A71 on sale directly from Samsung for $375. It's not worth the $600 in the carrier store

And now I have Samsung M51> I'm not even thinking about buying flagship now.

  • This is the only product that the more you pay, the less you get. Flagships typically don't have headphone jacks. They typically don't take memory cards. Very few have user replaceable batteries. Some even don't include chargers today. Most people just buy them to impress their friends. They have become the modern version of a fake Rolex.

  • You pay a lot to get the extra features of a flagship phone over a mid range phone. Yes, you get weather sealing, a slightly faster chipset, a slightly better camera, and more memory and storage but you pay around $600 more for that. Right now, the midrange phone offers the most value for users. It makes absolutely no economic sense to spend $1200 for a flagship when the only way to upgrade them is to replace them every two years. Most people don't even need flagship phones. They just buy them for prestige and bragging rights.

  • When I am only using my phone to make calls, send texts, surf internet and watch some videos; there is no reason I need to pay a ton of money. And, if I only pay $300-$400, then I can buy another midrange phone in a year or so and upgrade that way. I pay cash for my phone, not a payment plan, and also with buying a cheaper phone there is no need for insurance.

  • Regarding the idea that average users don't NEED better specs: The main thing I find most tedious about smartphones is the web browsing experience where the browser constantly unloads tabs! Even on an ancient PC with almost no RAM you could have a browser tab open for days while using other programs - and then return to the web page without any issues. Even on a good phone, sometimes you find yourself opening the browser on a page you visited 30 minutes ago - and it will immediately auto reload the web page. Horrendous for productivity. This is a reason I could never just rely on a smartphone. Doing something like online shopping on multiple websites is super tedious and every time the browser auto-reloads on me I just sigh and go back to my ancient laptop instead which works 10x better.
