I have to admit, I feel as if I no longer have my finger on the pulse of the average Android consumer. When the Galaxy Note 8 was announced this week, I figured everyone would go crazy for it. It has everything and anything you may want. The phone has a massive 6.3″ Infinity QHD+ display, Snapdragon 835, 6GB RAM, dual rear-facing cameras, headphone jack, IP68 water resistance, 3,300mAh battery, iris scanner, and the list goes on. On paper, this thing sounds like a dream phone for many.
Then I read the comments section.
Apparently, many seem unhappy with the price associated with the device. At about $950, that’s understandable, but what were expecting for an Android device of this caliber?
So, here is what I’m asking for. In the comments below, please, describe your dream Android phone, then how much you’re willing to pay for it. Be honest with yourself. If you’re opposed to anything above $900, you’ll need to cut corners in a few areas, but I’m genuinely curious to see what kind of phone you’d create in terms of specs and hardware.
For me, I’d create a Pixel/Galaxy S8 hybrid. Give me Samsung’s hardware with Google’s stock Android experience and that’s my dream phone right there. For pricing, I’d expect to pay about $649 to $699 for something like that.
Now it’s your turn.
