I’ve been almost 10 using Android devices. I love Google, I value the effort that manufacturers make, and I love that there is so much diversity , each user can choose the mobile that he likes the most and adapts to his needs. However, speaking clearly and without detours, because of – or thanks to – the iPhone X, almost all phones are the same .
iPhone X, Huawei P20, LG G7 ThinQ, OnePlus 6 … Notch and facial recognition have become the most important thing in the world . Be careful, it is not a criticism per se , but as a consumer, I would like the firms to focus on what consumers ask . When have we asked for frame reduction and facial recognition? And yet, when have we ordered more battery, more durability, and better prices? The answer is clear .
Yes I know. My point of view can be somewhat radical at times, but I think the approach is correct. Why the hell do you have to adapt yourself to a mobile of 1,000 euros? Why do I have to go through the learning curve of a Face ID, just because the manufacturer has not wanted to introduce a reader back, and can do so? For this kind of detail, sometimes I loose so much acid about certain signatures .
This year, I’ve seen some mobile phones come onto the market that, for example, has been dragging autonomy problems since its first generation . Your first generation! I will not give names, but if you know a bit about the Android market you may know who I’m talking about. But no, that nameless model is not alone, other manufacturers have been asking for changes in the software for years and years .
Have brands stopped at some point to think about improving their product based on what consumers ask for? On a few occasions , to say almost none.
To this day, I find it ridiculous that my 959-euro cell phone can not connect my headphones, a loudspeaker, or an auxiliary input to a vehicle, without having to go through an adapter first. On many occasions, manufacturers promise us certain improvements, although they do not focus on what really matters to the user .
This was just the first warning that Market trends are not there to adapt to us . I repeat, do not be wrong, I agree with the current frame reductions, new designs, and facial recognition systems , but if the firms dedicated the same time and resources to what really matters, the Android world would be better.
According to what I can read in the comments that you leave day after day, the users we have clear what we want . First, autonomy is a key point in any device , and we are convinced that we prefer that the terminal lasts two days, even if it is necessary to increase the thickness by a few mm.
The users also they want phones that update on time , you are many who tell us that you trust certain brands last year, and that you have seen how they have taken too long to update your terminals.
Durability is also a key point, users want phones that last as long as possible , and no slowdowns after a few months as unfortunately often happens. Definitely, consumers want improvements in the basics , and this is usually ignored by manufacturers, who compete with each other, sometimes, to include improvements or developments that are not a priority.
And you, do you agree that manufacturers should improve the basics before aspects that we do not need?
