So, 2020 is about to end in a few days time and I(people) had some thoughts and the topic for this blog is people’s thoughts on smartphones these days. Everyone is saying that all the smartphones look the same and are boring with no major upgrades from one generation to the next. Well, there can be a debate on this, its true that all the smartphones of today are pretty similar but that’s the beauty of it, now you can pick up any phone and wouldn’t be disappointed, plus there’s so few differences in feature set of the flagships and the mid-range or even the budget range. The Pixel 4a can shoot stills which much more expensive offerings can’t.

That was the one side of it but on the other hand, phones like the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has a 108MP main sensor, with 8k video recording, from a smartphone. The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max can shoot in Dolby Vision HDR, its at that quality that most devices doesn’t support it. The OnePlus 8T can charge at 65w fast charging or the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra which can charge at 120w, these kind of devices keep things interested in the industry. If this wasn’t enough, brands came out with folding phones, like the 2nd gen Galaxy Z Fold2 5G or the Moto Razr 5G, every manufacturer has their own philosophy of multitasking and fitting a bigger screen in your pocket, like with the Galaxy Fold, Samsung folded the tablet sized display is half or the Galaxy Z flip and the Moto Razr folds in a clamshell making a normal phone more pocketable or the Microsoft Surface Duo which has two displays glued together with a 360° hinge.

In today’s world, every brand is trying to web you in their ecosystem, like Apple, a ecosystem which is becoming more and more exclusive to its products each day or Samsung, which may not be as exclusive but has a much more wide range of products ranging from smartphones to TVs to refrigerators to smart home appliances like Ballie and there are rumors of an OnePlus smartwatch in partnership with Google.

In the end, buying a phone is a very personal decision, if not the most and I and in fact, every tech youtuber or blogger is trying to show you the best deal for your hard-earned money. I can tell you which is the best but I cannot influence your preference or choice, like a iPhone user will not change to an android phone because its their choice, while the phones in that price point provide much more on paper but the user wants to buy the new iPhone and doesn’t care about the spec sheet.
