    Because i live long enough to undrstand or dont understand a simple things.
    In case of Samsung i usualy dont onderstand because their marketing strategy or policy is very strange to me.

        Wireless charging = fragile glass backs. No way! I want my metal back.

          Wireless charging, IP68 and NFC are must for all mobiles nowadays! With Pocophone F1, the lines are definitely blurred between premium and mid-ranges.

            Not a bad idea but work on your updates and software first

            Wireless charging on a buggy software is not considerate

              Anonymous, 02 Oct 2018I do not understand people that work on tech sites or just... morewell actually u r wrong !! wireless charging is actually good for battery . which has been proved by "Linus Tech Tips"

                well it'll be tough for Samsung !! after all Samsung has a lot of 3rd party distributors , which raises the cost of the device !!
                but on the other hand, companies like Xiaomi, Honor etc tries to cut down all the costs by eliminating all those 3rd party distributors ! so good luck with that Samsung :P

                      CptPower, 02 Oct 2018Rather add half the price selling A6 plus with SD450 for 38... moreDo you come to just bash Samsung?

                        I do not understand people that work on tech sites or just read..

                        They want fast charging.
                        They want " wireless " charging.

                        But wireless charging is much slower than Qc 2.0.
                        It is bad for battery, it increases temperature too.

                          Can't provide gyro and auto brightness sensor in their mid-rangers, and they are talking about wireless charging

                            Samsung seems to have shaken up with the lost ground in the Midranged Category... Which used to be their 50% Sales and Profit (Mobile Division)...

                            Well they surely have taken things in their head and somewhere accepted the reality... And they are trying to get back, can see this with back to back good decisions...

                            Samsung just don't look after Sales and Profit but understand what WE the Customers want... The Profit will follow you again...

                              Samsung is going back on track from being left behind by the Chinese competitors.
                              At last many Samsung loyal customers have another reason to continue on being a customer. :-D

                                Wow good move I would say from Sammy.

                                My only point of concern is why they are not shipping fast charger with phone which are priced above 18k in India. A7 (2018) is super rich pact phone only thing that drew me back was no fast charging.

                                Stop the trend of killing one or the other features in A series Samsung.
                                IP68
                                OIS or EIS
                                Fast Charging

                                Fast charging should be included in almost all phone which cost above 15k in my opinion.

                                  Rather add half the price selling A6 plus with SD450 for 380 euros when Pocophone cost 300 with best CPU and GPU. Typical Shamesung.

                                    What they need to do to compete with midrangers from other companies is make their crappy midrangers CHEAPER, not stuff them with more features to make them more expensive.

                                    People looking for midrangers are not taking a second look at phones filled with features, they just want a cheap phone that can do everything they want them to do.

                                      Wireless was in middle range devices already 5+ years ago and then it went away for a while. And then it was only in flagships or some low budget weird brands from China.
