    Wow, higher than expected, but after looking at the proposed specs, I suppose I get it. The devices are amazing sounding, with *double* the specs of Pixel 4 (for instance)

    Well double the storage perhaps, but not double the processor or double the functionality overall.

    No, I won't pay that sort of price for a phone because I don't think any phone is actually worth that. Fortunately Samsung prices fall quite quickly after release, so unless you want bragging rights for having the new shiny thing first there is no need to actually pay those prices either ;).

    The S20 lineup looks good, but not worth $1,000+ good.

    As Hadron mentioned, if you want one wait 4 or 5 months. :thumbsupdroid:

    Of course, samsung *just* announced deals on last years S10 lineup, but it's $150 off. So don't expect much if you wait.

    May be different in the US, where the carriers control a larger fraction of the handset market.

    The first online store I looked at here has the S10e/S10/S10+ all between £200-220 less than their launch prices, and I know they'd dropped substantially even 6 months ago. Some years they drop more than that by now. These are all SIM-free non-carrier devices at full retail (I don't buy contract phones so don't know how those prices have changed).

    That's what devices are going for, nowadays. Bad for the consumers. Good for stockholders.
     
  8. I think these all gadgets in their own revolution make their own stands. It is unfair to increase the price bracket with some minor changes. You can correct me.

    Can't argue with that. Hard to be OK with such huge jumps. The hardware is catching up with teh price, to an extent, but still, 1000-1400 for flagship phones is INSANE.

    They are raising prices in a large part not because they are delivering more but because people are buying fewer phones and replacing them less often - which is, on every metric apart from corporate profits, a good thing.

    Of course rising prices are part of why people buy fewer phones, so eventually this becomes self-defeating. But one thing market capitalism isn't good at is sustainability (at least not the Anglo-Saxon model where a company exists only to provide short-term return to shareholders).
