The 3 Most Important Phones of 2019

by birtanpublished on September 22, 2020

All right so a lot of smart phones came out in 2019 some of them were awesome some of them were less so but I wanted to do a video that focused on what I felt were the most important phones that came out this year so not like the best features not my personal favorites but

Phones that I think were important and influential in the market space both for this year as well as going forward so the first phone I want to talk about is the Samsung Galaxy fold this was a phone that launched in the spring of 2019 and

It was a device that drew a lot of attention to the folding screen technology it was the world's first kind of brand-name phone that had a screen that could be bent in half and even people that weren't interested in phones

At all were interested in the Galaxy fold because it did something new it did something that was so refreshing and different in the smartphone market but the launch was rough there were issues with the screen and there were issues

With the hinge in terms of his durability and it felt like they launched this product a little bit too early as if they rushed this product to market to try to beat competitors and because of that rougher launch it feels

Like it poisoned or tainted the idea of what folding phones were all about because for a lot of people that initial impression was not great but it turns out months later once they'd fixed it and once they tweaked it this phone is

Very good for a first gen foldable and people are clearly interested in this product people are interested in folding screens and it's largely in part to this phone ok the second kind of important and influential phone I'd say this year

Was the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 was the first Samsung flagship to get rid of the headphone jack now Samsung released a lot of phones this year and they showcased their new hole-punched OLED screens which were really cool in

Their own right but the removal of the headphone jack on the note 10 was in my opinion the most important and most influential thing that they did this year by removing it from the note as well as the upcoming s 11 next year I

Really feel like it marked the end of the headphone jack the only way to get Jack's at this point is to go with brands that are less popular or with mid tier phones it's like that's it headphone jack is done okay now to me

The most important phone from this year was actually the pixel 3a this was a device that launched at $400 and they designed this phone to be different from every other smartphone at the four hundred dollar

Price point because these guys focus on having a good camera like a really good camera while still being a very affordable $400 phone so all the other things like the specs and the build materials and like all the stuff that

Really doesn't matter too much to the end-user they skimped on it but they focused on having a really good camera and a really good price and that feature of a great price with a great camera was something that no one else did before

And because of this because of the existence of the pixel 3a they saw a big jump in their US sales figures something that none of the pixel devices had been able to do before and so I think Google realized the importance of pricing when

It came to the pixel brand and then they launched the pixel for a device that I'm assuming isn't going to sell nearly as well as they had hoped or had anticipated and I think the combination of these two phones like a super

Expensive phone that just didn't move as well as they would hope and then a cheap phone that just sold like gangbusters I think Google learns from this I think Google sees this and says people really care about things that actually matter

And I think next year only see the pixel for a in the pixel five I think the pricing and kind of effects of the pixel 3/8 are gonna play into that quite nicely and I think this phone also affected the pricing on this phone the

IPhone 11 they priced this phone at $6.99 which was $50 cheaper than than what they launched the previous generation of this phone it is so unlike Apple so uncharacteristic of Apple to drop the price of anything let alone one

Of their best selling products so I think they did this because of market pressure because if companies like pixel making phones like the pixel 3a which were really really well valued at $400 and then it affects stuff like that so

To me pixel 3a one of like one of the best phones that you could get for 400 bucks but beyond that just super influential and super important in our industry because we are surrounded by so many super expensive smartphones and to

Have an option like this I think this plants the seed in our industry of like this is a stuff people want cheap phones with one or two features that are really fortunes that people actually care about and this guy led the charge okay

These are the phones that I think are most important from 2019 what do you think do you agree do you disagree are there other phones that you think are kind of more influential than these ones let me know hope you guys enjoyed this
