Anyone that looks around knows that Samsung doesn't sell nearly as many flagship Galaxies like they use to. Back in the S3/S4 days I would see them in the wild quite often. Now i really don't see many Galaxies (Flagships) around at all, after the S4 the sales really did drop. I also can't stand all the comparisons of Samsung vs. iPhone when the new phones come out i Just don't get it, it has the be a views thing so people click the articles and watch the Youtube videos. I mean Samsung runs Android no iOS so why do people always need to compare. All Samsung can do is hardware they have no OS so the only thing to maybe compare is the cameras its all just so much clickbait these days.
Curved OLED does not mean it will be an edge display like Sammy's phones. Apple watch has a flexible OLED display. Still think the OLED screen will cover the entire front of the phone with Touch ID and earpiece hidden as well. Apple does have patents for the OLED display to be wrapped around the entire phone so even the back will be part of the screen, we shall see. If they wrap it all around you can do/have gesture available on the rear of the iPhone for more controls or buttons.
Samsung's attempt at doing this before they even have the correct facial tracking camera hardware on there phones is just another example of a rushed product, just like implementing the non secure facial scanner on the S8 before the iPhone X. Again and again Samsung does this with there products, the people are just use to it by now. These features will sell a lot of Face ID phones tho this fall for Apple, especially considering there will be at least three phones equipped for Face ID, teens are going to love this .
What I can't really see for Google in the Future is that with AR def going to become mainstream and very useful in the next few year, Android just doesn't have the premium phones in numbers like Apple has. There really not that many Premium Android phones being sold with good specs to push the tech forward, and this is going to be more and more of a problem for Android. I really think this is why Google has to come back out with The Pixel last year. They really do need there own high end phone to sell well or I just do see a way out for them. Samsung as well is not selling many premium phones either, although from the articles and the media you would think the S7 or S8 sell in iPhone numbers when in reality its not even close
The iPhone has been out for a decade now and the press and most folks still insist to compare Samsung to Apple iPhones more than any other brands. The real competition for Samsung is not Apple anymore, its more Google itself now with its own line of Phones. Even tho the Pixel only sold 4 million last year, i bet the majority of those phones were from Samsung users. If Google even starts to sell more slowly each year those aren’t Apple users switching those are other Premium Android flagship users. At this point people are locked into there ecosystems of either Apple or Android, and i can buy only on iOS phone, where Adroid you can switch anytime. Samsung just loves to take shots at Apple and bring them up in commercials or keynotes wherever they are because it make them seem like there on par with the iPhones if they keep comparing it to Apple its keeps them in the news. I almost think samsung want to fanboys to argue and rile them up like the notch commercial they ran for months last fall during the holdidays. I mean at this point, thats not going to attract Apple users by making fun of them, Samsungs just trying to hold onto the fan base they already have. It’s the Pixel they have to worry about because I don’t think Google will stop this time making phones, But I’m sure there’s a contract where they cant make fun of the Pixel at all during events or in commercials because Samsung uses Android to begin with.
