With these prices going crazy for the basic needs, why would someone would invest in over 1000$ phones?!

    Not if they keep copying Apple with tiny improvements every year, no innovation and same pricing.

              aknsreddy, 01 Nov 2022Only if they reduce price and increase battery endurance samsung devices start from as low as $150. Do you expect them to be free

                back in 2017 their most expensive phone is Note8 ($900) nothing like today with over $1200.

                  Well, in 2017, they introduced the S8, the Note 8 (after the whole Note 7 fiasco), so yeah, it was a great year since they introduced a lot of new stuff + reinstated a product that had issues on its previous models.

                  On the midrange side, well, the A series was still almost flagship with IP68 but it lost OIS that year, and prices went up, too.

                  I think it's time for them to reevaluate their current design language. It's too dull and boring. It kind of tries to look premium but it doesn't feel like it. Maybe they should try going back to their previous designs and try to bring back one of those. S3 "egg" design was pretty comfortable to hold on your hand and the S4 build upon that. Both of those were successful devices in their times and the face of the brand for almost half a decade (they were the most known models). S5 kind of killed all of that in one round. Perhaps an S6 renewed could work nowadays...
