In this article, we will address the issue of why the competition between smartphones has decreased so much and is 2021 the last one?
In the past, the competition in the smartphone market was such that any company could enter the field with the unique capabilities it intended for its gadget. In a way, if you are interested in these smart tablets, you must have realized in the last decade how each company participated in this great competition and produced unique gadgets; For example, we can start with HTC, which produces phones with two speakers, or even LG, which provides users with 3D images with a smartphone with Optimus 3D Max.
The competition was so serious that a big company like Samsung was not far behind other brands in designing unique gadgets and launched the Samsung Galaxy Beam with a small internal projector!
After this category, there was a group of other brands such as Motorola that tried to make low-cost flagship phones. Chinese companies also competed in the smartphone market to launch new gadgets with higher charging speeds and lower prices.
However, if such examples are not enough for you, how can we go back to a time when each phone had its own operating system and user interface; When different manufacturers took the freedom of action in designing the phone to their limit.
It won’t be long before the first real smartphone is made
It’s only been a little over a decade since the first batch of smartphones were made, and in the last few years, many companies in the industry have left.
LG announced some time ago that it intends to sell shares in its smartphone manufacturing division, and HTC has not introduced a gadget called “smartphone” for a long time. Also, Huawei is now out of business and politics, and a big company like Sony, which was once one of the mainstays of smartphone competition, is much less active; In a way, its handsets are designed and offered only for loyalty fans who still keep their old walkthroughs.
In any case, you may think that these events are only due to the wrong decisions of the manufacturers, but it is interesting to know that this is just a coin; On the other hand, it is related to the boredom of this market and its emptiness of creativity, which made the competition between companies more and more prosperous.
Of course, you are probably using Apple or Samsung flagships or intermediaries; But can you name another flagship that has followed in the footsteps of these two companies over the past few years?
For example, Google, which was once supposed to create a new revolution in the smartphone market and is one of the greats of this industry, is sitting aside and trying to keep users satisfied by reducing prices by offering mid-range and economical phones.
A company like OnePlus also has problems putting the right lenses behind the frame of its flagship camera, which we hope will be fixed in the OnePlus 9 Pro.
Only Samsung and Apple are able to compete in smartphones in 2021?
If the routine remains the same, then again in 2021 we will see the competition between the Korean and American companies Samsung and Apple, which may be interesting for users who enjoy comparing the flagships of the two companies, but in any case, despite the participants Less in this competition, it can no longer be considered a full-fledged competition in the so-called “smartphone market”; Rather, it is the only competition between Samsung and Apple that is repeated over and over again.
Anyway, if you remember, if it weren’t for Huawei, maybe Night Mode on smartphones wouldn’t be that advanced today; Or if the new system of cameras embedded by Google in the company’s flagships had not been made, perhaps the HDR image quality mode would not have produced stunningly natural images, as we see today.
In some cases, you can also see how Samsung and Apple, as the flagships and representatives of Android and iPhone, have reduced their credibility with Chinese companies and used their credit for other purposes. For example, it was recently announced that the Vivo iQOO 7 will come with a 120-watt charger that charges its 4,000 mAh battery in just 18 minutes! Can the iPhone 12 or Galaxy S21 Ultra be compared to this speed?
The problem is that as the world of competition between smartphones narrows, all attention is focused on just two companies and two participants; While others sit back and no longer show interest in presenting unique and new flagships.
