  • The Galaxy S21 phones seems to have abnormally unimpressive specs. Why do you think they're doing this?

    • They must be trying to get rid of them because they are offering carriers to sell BOGO.

    • I think you’re over thinking it. 1080p is cheaper, plastic back is cheaper. They think they can lean on their brand and make these cuts while maintaining pricing and increasing profits. Samsung/ Android does not have Apple level brand power lol. Also android peeps are all about “the specs”. Surely this will push some android users to other manufacturers

    • Because Samsung realized that it's most profitable and most popular phones are those selling in the budget-midrange (Galaxy FE, A51, A71, etc.)

    • Didn't the new director when he came more and more in charge, say that he wanted Samsung to go back to producing less costly stuff so that anybody could buy it? It seems to me that this is a start to go in that direction. Your theory Dave, seems not so valid to me, because they'd better make premium single screen phones then ànd premium double screen phones. They just want to get cheaper overall, is what I say.

    • @coolkidgandhi Not necessarily the asking price, but rather iPhone-sized profit (Apple has the lion's share of smartphone profits, despite not being the biggest smartphone seller)

  • The annoying thing about Samsung is that they always commit themselves to some kind of obviously tacky fad, and try to force it on users until it becomes obvious it's not sticking. Curved screens, Bixby etc, now folding phones. Just make a normal phone that's good - that's what 95% of people want! Give it an SD or dual sim slot, a headphone jack, a decent camera and a good screen. All these fads end up being reasons why potential customers go with the competition.

  • I have very, VERY, bad vision, so when I use my phone in bed without glasses on, I use it right up next to my face. I went from an LG G6 to an S10e, and let me tell you, when you hold your phone that close, the downgrade from 1440p to 1080p is extremely noticeable. I hate to see this.

  • Did Samsung not introduce a 1000 dollar note 20 with 2k(1080p) and plastic back and no micro sd as well. The S21 at least got a price drop. flat screen is a plus for my books, good plastic as well. sucks to lose the micro sd and lost the headphones long ago, and mst too, feels less samsung and more like competitors, especially those they mocked for not having QHD. Ever since they got the Ultra range, everything is sidelined, yeah fold is their new bread and butter, but Ultra too, they found a way to put the most expensive thing, in their most expensive phones, and the regular guys, just recycle old parts, and drop lots of competitive features.

    TankQTankQ2 개월 전
  • The 1080p screen yeah that I don't understand. But the S21 do have a lot of Upgrades over the s20 . But Apple do wait years b4 they add certain features to the iPhone.

  • Its to reduce energy consumption and ultimately CO2 emissions. The average user will not notice a difference. I can barely see a difference on a 720p 32" TV and a full HD (or not one that affects enjoyment).

  • Plastic was always better than glass. Metal was better than either of them. The only benefit to non-metal backs is wireless charging. Meanwhile, glass is way more fragile, heavier, harder to grip, and more prone to streaks and scratches. Good plastic can solve all of those problems, but metal generally has a more premium feel. Maybe it's just a cost cutting thing, but I really hope this is a sign that companies are starting to realize glass was a gimmicky mistake from the beginning. I have a similar feeling with the screen. Higher resolution screens are definitely nicer to look at, but you start to hit diminishing returns above 1080p on a phone sized display. The more pixels you push, the higher the TDP goes. I'd argue out of the box battery life is more noticeable to the average consumer than 1080p vs 1440p. Or, it could just be a cheapskate move again. Hard to say, but there are upsides to theses changes.

  • First thing first, Dave I really like your channel and thanks for sharing the latest and useful tech with us - I've learnt a lot. One of the Samsung reps told me recently the reason why they removed the SD slot was that this is one of the advocates of Samsung in helping conserve the environment. The SD card production is one of the electronic/plastic waste that is the world is battling and that would be one of the little ways Samsung can contribute. Would you agree with that given you are in the chemicals industry and may have some insights on this? Thx Cheers Stan

  • Samsung shot thier own foot. The s21 is in my opinion is the worst new phone. Waiting for xiaomi! S10+ was the worst phone overall with high cost: Blurry camera. Even my s9+ was much better.

    Christopher YChristopher Y2 개월 전
  • 1080p is plenty of resolution for a 6.2 inch screen. Many times brands add stupid features to their devices just because it sells more phones, even if those features don't add anything to the end result. They just put what they think we want, not what they should put to make the best phone.

  • Thanks to the Huawei ban, samsung kinda lost a competitor. So there is really no reason to compete. A lower resolution is good for the battery. To be honest, unless you really look for it, you won't see the pixels. For me, The lack of competition is the most logical reason for Samsung not making an effort. Especially when you look at the price

    IngagimusicIngagimusic2 개월 전
  • No charger, no major upgrades at all, no innovation and people say oh its cheaper. Samsung users are becoming the same as apple users, obsessed with the brand. I had s10 plus and lost it. Got a oneplus 7t Pro and now on find x2 pro. I don't understand why people limit themselves to a brand they have been brainwashed by. I always look at all tech available and go for the best there is. Even when the s21 comes out, it still won't be the best available. Even reviewers help the brands by claiming they are better than they are. That's what is going on. Companies pay the reviewers, reviewers then lie to the people and the people become obsessed with the brands paying the most money. Apple and Samsung are the biggest in the game yet neither of them have the best devices.

  • LOL, the 1080p argument is like people complaining that their 8K shows look like rubbish in a mobile phone. It's pretty obvious they have made the smart choice and made a cheaper phone that you throw away in a few years. Welcome to the future.

    leokimvideoleokimvideo2 개월 전
    • While that argument is mostly sound the only hole in it is just that samsung manufactures the screens. So the difference in cost likely isn't that large.

      Derek CarterDerek Carter2 개월 전
    • exactly. And I run my s9 at 1080 because....why? It was so silly to me when they made the switch. I used to look at monitors that were 1024 x 768 at the same viewing distance as I look at my phone because, you know, my eyes aren't microscopic macro lenses. The jump from 640 x 480 was great, and the move to 1920 x 1080 was also great. The jump beyond 1080 on a thing that fits in your hand is not worth it, and they are adjusting for digging deep into the measurebation hole where people care about pixel resolution and how much actual RAM a phone has, rather than how it performs. It is not that they care more about foldables. They are adjusting back to reality.

      psynchropsynchro2 개월 전
  • Maybe they're planning for a more price sensitive market with economic projections from mid last year? Or foldable is their focus now.

    David GuntherDavid Gunther2 개월 전

  • My theory is that the 1080p Panel has something to do with what the average user of their phone expects and needs and maybe battery life. Now this is an assumption, but claiming a 1080p 120Hz panel won't kill your battery like a WQHD 120Hz is probably an easy assumption to make. The harder part would be the user experience. I've personally gone from 1080p to 1440p back to 1080p. Did I notice the diffrence? Yes. Did I shit my pants? No. Half the content you can consume today is in FHD, most things I do won't require those extra pixels. Are they nice to have tho? Yeah and my biggest concern is that Samsung is missing that having 2k or 4k or 8k content in the near future is what's coming and they should not put as much attention on what is being watched or played today, but what will be watched and played tomorrow.

  • All these new phones are just getting bad. They're getting better, while getting worse at the same time. They're turning into money grabs. The phone is too attractive in my opinion. The pen is a joke in my opinion. Not too many people will buy it separate and use that hideous case with it. It's too expensive of an accessory as well. The cameras are gimmicks in my opinion. 90% of everyday people just take a selfie or take a photo of a fan dog or animal or some stupid food they had for dinner. These ridiculous zooms and other weird features are just so the companies can flex their muscles. Most people are very basic pic takers. Like snapping a pic of something their child did. Of people are trying to be professional photographers they just buy a high end camera. The ONLY features I look at in a new phone is screen size, battery size, chipset. When I was younger, I was all about buying the biggest newest top of the line phone 10 years ago. But now I'm all for budget. The $500-$700 phones do all the daily tasks and apps and social medias just as well as the top of the line. The gap between top of the line and low end is negligible anymore.

Is there any kind of regulation in place or something? otherwise, I see the situation where there is a company that made a decision and the other one is following...

Buy less phones, or buy underrated brands so that the smartphone market will come crashing down. As long as there still people buy that expensive shit, nothing will ever changes. The only thing that change is the company will have thicker pockets with your hard-earned dollars

  • I'm probably unpopular or whatever but I never run 1440. I need to make calls all day, I need to preserve my battery. My eyes forget what the difference is quickly. I just don't want lag. Also plastic back is fine who cares. Don't care about charger brick, mine never even gets out of the box anyway. I think samsung finally is understanding what people actually want and care about. Flat screen, less glass, cheaper, better battery. I don't need 4k screens and dumb gimmicks

    Adam RoughtAdam Rought3 개월 전
  • Your Theory is wrong. 1080p panel cost less than 4k. No sd card means no license charges for it and to make people depend on integrated cloud of Microsoft. No charger means another cost cutting. Still High price means they are greedy. They dont care about consumer now.

  • I think the previous models were forcing carriers (at least here in Canada) to charge like $40-50 a month for the phone over a 2-year contract. This is addition to the $85 data plan locked to 2 years. This may be a move to lower monthly cost of having a phone.
