    I see where you are going, back in 2011 Sony brought out the Xperia lineup and I was super excited to get the new Xperia Play, I'm mostly into mobile gaming, retro gaming to be more exact, but, back in 2011 the mobile industry was still in the early stages, android 2.2, single core processors, etc. But, despite all this I had high hopes for the Xperia Play, it sure was unique, with a physical controller adapted to the phone, stereo speakers and first gen snapdragon processor, it sure was ahead of its time, way to ahead unfortunatelly, it didn't do to well in the market and Sony left it behind, to bad, cause even after that, there was and still is a large comunity that has programed alot of emulators based around the Xperia Plays design, even today, with its low end profile it's still a good emulator mobile, Sony tried to enovate in design with the first gen of Xperia phones, but at the end decided to keep it "safe" and follow the crowd, I always hoped that Sony would reconsider the Xperia Play and brought back with todays high specs, that would bring a breath of fresh air to the mobile gaming comunity, guess i'll shop ebay for and old Play for old times sake.

    What's next is price, and especially in the US, there's a long way to go. Look at what you can buy new for $100 - Nearly nothing. $200 can get you some okay but $100 is basically out of the question. Realme has phones that come really close but they don't have any US lte bands. Honor was starting to put some heat on Moto but then Huawei got kicked out, leaving the budget and entry levels basically solely for Moto. Now moto no longer needs to push its prices down to competitive levels because there's no/very little competition.

    Glad I'm not the only one who notice their creating Mobile purposes by copying the "full screen resolution" design from iPhone, it sucks 'cause most of the phones now and then look exactly the same with the shapes and all that, they now basically making them no differences except some small addition. Nah, I'm still happy with my FE even 'till now.

    Hence I “downgraded” from an XR to an 8 and now to an SE. Smartphones are controlling our reality, they need to be put back where they belong! As a convenience and communicator NOT our only source of entertainment!

    Smartphones have become this era's televisions. Everyone has a smartphone like everyone has (or had) a television. Initially it is a battle of who can out perform, out innovate whoever else. Then, once everyone has said device, it just becomes passe, it becomes a part of everyday life. Like the evolution of television, which went from black and white to color in twenty years and then digital and high definition in fifty years after that, the evolution of said product can only incremental upgrades (size, clarity, less power consumption, communication standards and so forth). Smartphones have met the end of their golden era. Like televisions and computers, they have become just another standard part of daily life. From here on out it will just be incremental upgrades. Nothing earth shattering, just size, color, texture, networks and whatever materials are used to make them.

    Still rocking my Xperia Z3 that I got back in 2014. There's been no reason for me to upgrade, some phones even give me reasons to *not* upgrade, like the edge-to-edge display that I keep bumping on every phone I try with one. My Z3 still lasts a day, has all the features I need, and has NFC (which for some reason even today some mid-range devices don't have). I keep the software up to date thanks to some amazing devs over at XDA-Developers who have taken this device from Android KitKat (which it released with) to running Android 9.0 Pie. Only complaint I can have is that it's slower than newer devices, although it still keeps up with some mid-range devices, so that's even bearable. There really isn't much reason to upgrade.

    I think foldable phones are cool but unpractical at this point. They need development. I would say 2-3 years from now and we get usable foldable phones that don´t break after some days or moths. Til then i stick with my rectangle phone. I get the things done I want it to do and that´s all I need. But we will see in the future what we get. Maybe it will be exciting again.

    Next step will probably make the smartphone a basic "PC functionality" device with companies AMD entering into the SOC design marked with Samsung with Navi (and Zen 2+?), it stands to reason the next step is 1 device for everything. When you are out it's a phone, when you get home you plug it in (or connect via Wifi) and it turns into a PC with a large screen, mouse and keyboard (And yes - you can already do this, however the power/functionality isn't there yet) ..... Atleast that's my guess for the biggest evolution in next few generations of smartphones.

    Maybe it's about time people coming off the hamster wheel of buying new phones every year... it would certainly decrease the amount of e-waste over the world, also would save some rare materials that's been used in electronics. We don't need a new phone every year. It's just senseless capitalism greeding over more money, no matter how much we waste our limited resources during the process and exploit cheap workforce in the 3rd world...
    And the same with different OS versions every year. They constantly try to make slightly old things obsolete, when they don't develop your favourite apps for your 4-5 years old device, just because it's not the latest gadget...
    Back then, I had my 2nd desktop PC for 10 years, with the same installation of Windows XP, and I was okay with it. Eventually upgraded things like hard drive, RAM, CPU, graphics card, because I could. Try this with smartphones... you can't even change the battery nowadays in many models, like it's already made for the trash bin.

    I actually just got the Motorola g7 for $200, and it's not a bad phone, it basically has the same features as any other phone just cheaper. If you ask me the new phones with iris scanners, face scanners, and QHD resolution are cool but unnecessary.

    Phone space had gotten a bit boring due improvement among generational leaps getting smaller and smaller. Also it's not very profitable business for most vendors so they stopped trying to make better phones.

    For people like me we doubt we ever come across a phone over £500. So it doesn't matter if the phones get better and better. Mostly that is. Because the old ones get cheaper for us sometimes.

    The smartphone bubble is basically about to burst. Not in a catastrophic way necessarily but in a way that leads to something major coming out like maybe a refined version of the Samsung folding phone. Also tech companies need to realize that people don't want to always buy a new phone every year or two. Instead of trying to innovate in smaller increments with hardware, make minor improvements through software then, every four or five years, make a major hardware jump.
