Samsung says the S9 and S9+ haven’t sold that well. (Contrast Apple seeing growing ASP on iPhone X sales.) Android isn’t a moat; it’s a river that runs through companies’ plans for the future, washing them away.

An OK quarter: phone ASP pretty remarkable, Macs 👀, services and wearables dramatic.

What i read is yet another really good reason to get more people in middle class, to make it reach upward and expand upward. Economy will benefit from this greatly.

When Software / Android is the common denominator with your key competitors, price ultimately drives consumer preference. The concept of a premium Android phone is inevitably dying. If you run on Android, you have no USP.

I bought a Samsung S9 for self as a work device. Used it for sometime before giving to wifey who was using an Mi A1. I just couldn’t get daily work done on the device. In my opinion it’s a great camera strapped to a crappy smartphone.

Android is the Windows of mobile phone operating systems. Like PCs, the difference between one Android phone or the next is the crapware that the manufacturer forces on you. Samsung tries to convince consumers that their products are special. They are not.

Why could you not get daily work done on it? The spec is good. Been using one for past couple of months w/o issue (except Bixby)

Couple of reasons: (1) Email default app does not copy over the reference ID. So each reply looks like a new email when on an IMAP server. (2) Default calendar does not support CalDAV. (3) Slack is slow on android. H/w spec is no indicator of how successful the device should be.

Point I am trying to make is that many folks live with these limitation w/o impact to their business. Such limitations become a point of separation for others. This list will always be subjective to the needs of the user.

As someone who literally just bought an s8 for my wife it wasn't because iPhone was better it was because s9 wasn't worth the upgrade. It's an upgrade year to skip on both product lines.

Yes, I have. However, I am no opponent android or supporter of iOS. For my use cases, iOS worked best.

Does Android on S9 disallow you to change the default Email or Calendar apps, like iPhone?

“Premium Android” died in about Q2 2015. I wrote a post about it. That was when Sony, LG, HTC finally went over the edge.

Maybe Samsung will finally have gotten the memo.

I just wanted to highlight that no Android phone should be judged by it's carrier apps.
