I was a bit disappointed when Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S7 in September.
I thought that Samsung would have finally delivered a flagship device that could match the iPhone’s iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, which both had some solid design choices but didn’t offer a compelling premium experience.
Now I’m a little disappointed that Samsung hasn’t given us another flagship.
The S6 was Samsung’s flagship, but the Galaxy 7 is not, and the S6 has the same camera, camera processor, and RAM as the S7.
The Galaxy S8 is probably Samsung’s best-looking phone ever, and it has a very similar camera setup to the S8, but it’s still a lot smaller than the S9.
Samsung has been trying to keep its phones a little smaller, and this is probably the best example of that, at least in terms of design and battery life.
The new Samsung flagship is the S5, and I’m not sure if I’ll ever want to go back to my S6 because it has the camera and the RAM that were my favorite features of the S4.
The only reason I’ll get over the S2 is because it’s a good phone and I can afford it.
I like the look of the new S5 and the fact that it’s slightly taller than the previous model, but I’d rather get a slightly bigger phone than the smaller S5.
Samsung still makes some great phones, but they’re all relatively expensive, and there’s no guarantee that they’ll ever get better or have better design decisions.
I don’t know what Samsung’s strategy is with the Galaxy line, and if Samsung wants to continue to build solid phones, it’s going to have to figure out a way to get a new flagship out every few years.
But at the same time, I think Samsung is on a path to build a very good phone, one that I think could be good enough for me to be willing to pay a premium for.
