    Not a hot take at all, competition is good for the industry for this very reason! We want companies to copy each other so in the end we get to pick the best option (or at least our personal favorite option). “Good artists copy, great artists steal.” -Steve Jobs



    Pirms 2 dienām

    Interesting take. We're a business which regularly makes use of that first mover advantage - so it's weird to say this - but I think I agree? At least from the perspective of a customer/consumer

    Lmao you got everything wrong in this review smh. The display on this one is really shitty considering the price range while you say that it's really good. The camera, on the other hand, are A grade and probably better than those on the note 20 ultra while your dumbass says otherwise. The sad part is that many people would consider buying or not buying this phone after watching this bullshit of a review you've put out.

    I don't think that those innovations and "homework" should be copy and everyone being like" just fine".
    To me, that's disrespectful to the original phone designer.
    (2 thoughts down below)
    1. because those attempts and designs from smartphone companies really cost them, but the one who steals didn't give any credit to the innovators but compete with them, making the smartphone field fewer innovators like LG and HTC (I mean, in the early times...) but only copycats.
    2. I don't like smartphones to be like clones...I think there is no "right way" or "correct way" to make a phone, each phone has its distinguishing feature and design (ideally)
    , and somehow shows your taste and style. You know, someone just like higher screen-to-body ratio and they can tolerate the hole-punch screen, but I rather have a lower screen-to-body ratio but plz plz plz give me a no hole-punch screen. It just a matter of taste, not something every company should copy.
    I love my smartphone because of its uniqueness, characteristics, and the company's respect and work for the product, not the specs.
    And I admire the innovations and attempts from smartphone companies, every new innovation on their phones were big risks and they should be respected.

    Tech products tend to be patented, from their physical designs to virtual software features. We went through a multi-year court battle with this previously. But of course, any Chinese company based on China can get away with this because no one dares entering a court battle in China because the courts are corrupt to take the Chinese side. Hence why you see more 'clones' today for the high-end devices than ever before. I don't agree with Marquees' opinion of 'copying' as a Designer, but frankly there is nothing we can do as long as the Chinese government favours its own over foreigners.

    Yeah, sure...it's not inherently wrong for companies to copy each other. That's almost impossible to not do in this industry. After all, just because you have an idea doesn't mean you own it. However, it's best for companies to establish their OWN identity to stand out, rather than only be known as a ripoff of someone, regardless of what they copy and tinker with.

    I’m here after the Apple event, but did anyone else get weirded out when they mentioned how you can pass your iCloud account information to certain people after you die? 😂it was something weird to be brought up but it’s actually true though, I have info and photos I’d rather have be shared to someone I know when I pass away just in case my phone wouldn’t be accessible. Oddly innovative thing to create for a phone.

    Well.. If I had changed my Note 10+ to a Note 20 Ultra I would actually be running it at 1440p... 120Hz on a phone is completely useless for me personal and I don't care if it looks smother when scrolling since I don't read and scroll fast as hell at the same time anyway. And if I watch some videos they are in general 24, 25, 30 and 60fps anyway.
    90Hz variable refreshrate would make more sense on a phone.
    Unless it's a dedicated gaming phone and games actuaslly support 120Hz or more.
