Who the hell shot this video? Brother 3 M subs and you shot with dark background ALLL THEEE TIMEEEE a phone that we want to analyze its bezels? What the heck? Are you kidding guys, seriously 3 M subscribers?
Company are always smarter than customers. All those phone brand use the notch because Its what people want. When I say people, I mean the majority who doesn't watch tech videos or reviews. The only phone brands they are familiar with is Apple and probe Samsung. If the newest Iphone has a notch, these people would want a notch. Remember, Company doesn't make money on people who know techs well. They make most money on parents and adults who doesn't have so much spare time to study tech.
The Huawei P20 is like $1,400. It better have better everything.
The SD660 is a beast and it's more power efficient than the more powerful CPUs.
The OnePlus won't even have an sd card slot, so if that's a necessity, you're out of luck.
Samsung have said they're not obsessed with being first anymore wanting to provide a more useful user experience. There's no point being first with a poorly thought out product. You might argue that Bixby and ARemoji are in the category but they're only software and can improve over the life of the product. A bad product is bad for the rest of it's life. Homepod anyone ?
What about audio? Is there a discrete Hi-Res DAC? How good is the headphone amp? How about any comment on the audio performance at all? Seem like strange omissions given that almost everyone uses phones to listen to music.
It's strange unless one realizes that most smartphone reviewers have internalized the marketing of the smartphone makers: If the corporations who make the phones don't care about audio, then most reviewers don't either. If they did, their would be at least as much time devoted to testing the audio capabilities of these phones as there is to testing their pitiful cameras.
Upon watching this review... I can now safely say that the Oppo R15 will never reach the shores of the Philippines... Sigh... Oh well... Might as well pick up the Huawei P20 lite or the Vivo V9... Sigh...
