Good video on a interesting topic; My opinion; Smartphones are like appliances, really for the general Joe Blow average consumer, it's like a Refrigerator or Oven or Washing machine. And for sure have become like PC's, once you have a good PC there's zero reason for most people to buy a new one year after year, nowadays you can keep a PC easily for 5 years, but you can upgrade specific parts like VideoCards or hard drives. So yes, the whole smartphone fad is fading and people don't care. Plus when flagships are selling for $1,000+ and phones like the Pixel 3a can be had for $399, for the general non tech geek, a $399 smartphone that has a great camera, guaranteed 3 years of updates direct from the manufacturer, smooth OS, a good enough display for most, and generally good battery life. The average regular guy will think, what does this $1,000 smartphone truly get me compared to spending just $399? Most people just want to make phone calls, text people, send e-mails, surf the web, use GPS, see sports scores, etc... for the 90% of smartphone users, having the latest SD855 Snapdragon or A12 processor meaning nothing to them.
