Those two need to be careful to stay on top. That was the point you misted

I'm not necessarily against in screen scanners, but longevity is a concern. There's been enough released now that we should know by next year if people start having problems with them
i am considering to buy new battery for my redmi 3, just because all new phones are shovels, not designed for human hand to operate one-handed.. looks like designed for gorillas who can easily use shovels one-handed.
So many confusing phones. I've decided to keep my current Motorola phone and buy later.

Seriously, are there some studies about how the oled screens that are known for wearing off when used to high intensity, especially blue oled pixel, will work after one year of applying strong backlit Under the thumb to read the fingerprint?
I'm a little afraid the blue pixels will fade off at this specific place and we will get a screen marked by a yellowish circle in the middle…
Plus, we can't use them for gesture control. A total step backward. Nothing added in usability, a risk for the longevity of the screen, and a loss of features.
Less needed features and more of useless ones a minority asked for disguised as "innovation", higher prices. Yes, of course it's going to decline.
Hope people in their countries, or as money lusting capitalist overlords say "consumers in markets" will understand to limit their spending and by this way show that their voice is what drives the companies. Not the other way around.
Been using Mi Max Prime since 2016.. 4850mah, SD652, 6.4 inch screen.. This features enough to make me stay for quite a while.. I don't use camera much... Yeah, android update stopped long ago (still at Android N) but I don't think I miss much..
Good news finally a phone decline... hope to see a tablet rise
If they keep removing useful features that people actually care about, sales are going to to keep declining. It's not difficult to work out. Despite what the vocal minority insanse fanboys say, most people actually expect their phone to have basic stuff like micro SD support and headphone jacks
Under-display camera is one technology which should give this market a sales boost
Let the smartphone shipments decline much more and feature phones rise because there is no innovation for smartphones these days as compared to the year in 2017.
Walter C. Dornez, 04 Jun 2019Man, companies like Samsung and Apple need to watch out. Otherwise, they'll fallIf that applies to Apple and Samsung the two tech giants than it should apply to everyone. Meaning what's the point of your comment?
Huawei should expect a bigger decline in 2019.
I'd wouldn't be surprised if we saw a double the drop they're predicting.
I think the chinese cell phone companies need to watch out... there has been a wakeup call in the world... people now see what the chinese communist governent are doing..

By the way don't preach and tell others what to do...oh mighty one
Yes people. Don't buy foolishly. Buy smartly, which includes knowing when NOT to buy. This is great news.
Anyway, the world needs to reduce growth. We don't have infinite resources people! Buy what you need, not what you want!!!
Man, companies like Samsung and Apple need to watch out. Otherwise, they'll fall
