smaffei said:So, Google tackles a market that Apple continually chooses to ignore. The sub $500 phone demand (that's growing).I hope the Pixel 3a sells well. If it does, we'll probably see an iPhone SE 2. Apple being reactionary and not visionary anymore.
Is Apple's clunky screen-splitting really used by 'Mac power users'? I've never seen a single person ever use it, and 'power users' use apps like BetterSnapTool or Magnet to do the job properly.
Not that I'm encouraging the Sherlocking of great apps, but I don't really understand Apple's reluctance to make proper use of ever-increasing screen sizes. I user BetterSnapTool and couldn't really operate without it - with a 27" screen a tool like that is a requirement as far as I'm concerned. Even Windows does this better than Apple, and the new Windows leaks show they've moved this further on, though still not as far as 3rd party apps. I was really hoping a new OS would finally add this kind of essential functionality natively.
The iPhone 12 mini is a low-end iPhone that happens to be in a smaller body. Sales figures show it's not done well, and the conclusion everyone leaps to is that nobody wants a small iPhone. Which may well be true, but certainly can't be proven by the figures alone.
I'd love a high-end phone that can be used by one hand again. Been wanting one since the 5 was killed off.
