    Re: Samsung Galaxy S9 to launch on 25th February

    All indications are this is a tweaked S8. So another sub £30 camera in a £600+ phone,which means other parts will cost more but the camera will be advertised the most despite its very low cost,and all the fans will defend it to the ends of the earth.

    No wonder that in the real world the S8,iPhone 8 and iPhone X sales were less than expected and more and more people are keeping their phones longer.Another bean counter led by the numbers phone raiding the parts bin with more PR bumpf. Samsung has been accused by Italian regulators of actively gimping battery life so to force people to upgrade quicker, which is no wonder as research is indicating the lack of true innovation is dampening people's excitement on spending another £600+ on these phones. More people seem to upgrade if the phone goes kaput and more people are buying cheaper phones.

    Can never understand peeps spending so much money on phones , can buy a whole computer for less than some of these damn things.
    I have to have a phone for work and the camera comes in handy occasionally on jobs for reference. My phone is for phone calls and a few texts if really necessary , it's not a poser / bling must have.I have 3 cameras for proper photography , 2 computers and 2 laptops for work and internet. Tablets ? , well I have paracetomol.Lol. Another thing that bugs me is , I go into various computer sites / forums
    and half the damn place is full of mobile phone articles , sorry , I'll hang up now.

    2 answer you both.... because this is a hardware site most of the people here are not like the average Jo or Joanne. Most people I know who aren't hardware geeks buy a phone because that is all they will have. No cameras, no laptop - maybe a tablet. Almost certainly not a big box pc any more (or at least one they use). If they use a laptop or pc it's at work...and work only
    This is why people will spend this much on a phone, and this is why people are not fussed about spending this much. And us hardware geeks, in general, are in a small minority these days
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!
