  1. The OnePlus7 Pro was an awesome phone and my personal fav of the 2019 devices but I don't think it influenced the market in a significant manner even with that 90hz screen. I think it did help to make OnePlus a more recognizable brand this year. Thank for watching!

  2. Pixel 3a was a joke, they rumoured a affordable pixel for growing markets like india and they launched it here with a price tag 40k ₹ which is nonsense, you can buy a OnePlus 7 here and still buy a decent pair of headphones with that price tag…i am totally convinced now that i would be using custom ROMs now on old hardware with great software support which not only saves tons of money buy extends life of old hardware..a great example would be Redmi note 4 (4x) which is still supported by XDA developers and ROM developers such as pixel experience rom etc you can install Android 10 on that device and use it as daily driver, i dont personal own it but there are over 66k people who have downloaded pixel experience rom which can be seen on statistics tab of the ROMs website.

  3. 2:29 you really think the end consumers don’t care about specs & want only the camera? That’s a lame statement to make

  4. Now we are giving Samsung kudos for removing the headphone jack when not too long ago we were ripping Apple for removing it? What hypocrisy.

  5. Google releasing 400 dollar phone: just let us spy on you bruh.

    And you know this because the (spy) camera is really good quality. It all adds up mr lee.

  6. Surprised the iPhone SE wasn’t on Dave’s list lol cos he talked so highly of it

  7. I think that Razer Phone 2 also quite influential because of the 120hz screen and very good stereo surround sound system.

  8. you missed the ROG 2, that was definitely influential…

  9. U should have included oneplus 7 Pro or asus ROG or razer phone 2 as they have influenced the high refresh rate display standards 💥

  10. Folding Phones like the Galaxy fold are just a gimmick and aren’t that useful

    Change my mind

  11. 4:13 The real competitor shows up

  12. like nobody buys the pixel 3a at all

  13. Asus ROG Phone 2 was also a influential phone, because of it's aggressive price performance ratio, and an 120Hz AMOLED display and 6000 mAh battery. These influenced other brands like Samsung to opt in for bigger batteries in their flagship (S11+ will come with 5000mAh battery)

  14. 3a does not have a 855

  15. Also nobody is sweating about the Pixel, it’s behind, the reliability and hardware sucks.

  16. Huawei p30 is the best

  17. Guys, pls stop using China brand phone

  18. The a in Pixel 3a stands for Affordable.

  19. How can Galaxy Note 10 remove headphone jack is important to smartphone market? Apple done it years ago. Other android also have already done it multiple times. ???

  20. Disappointing that the Pixel 4 is even on the table. I understand you brought it in to highlight and spotlight the 3A, but the Pixels this year are arguably THE most disappointing phones of the year, if not the most.

  21. I mean, my phone has 4 gigs of ram, 4000 battery and it was 150$. The camera sucks. If they can sell me the same specs plus a good camera for 400$, im game. Buying it INSTANTLY.

    1000$ phones with the latest CPU and AMOLED screen? No thanks? IPS is good enough. Mid-range CPU's are good enough (also energy eff)

  22. Still couldn't get into my head is the fact that he's standing…

  23. Nobody:
    Dave: people really care about things that actually matter.

    Thanks dave lol

  24. Probably will remove Google pixel 4 from it , features that are not really implemented properly, would probably put one plus 7 pro into it , notchless , 90 hz refresh rate and snappy interface

  25. i really want a pixel, but the prices did not go down enough during black friday. plus it's difficult to get one here in the philippines

  26. You have to be a cretin to view removing headphone jack as positive.

  27. What did I just watch?

    seriously, the pixel 4 is hot garbage. No need to debate that right?!

    To this day ive only seen 1 galaxy fold, literally one. And I work in a place surrounded by tech.

    The Samsung note 10 lost the headphone jack and to get expandable memory, you have to get the even more expensive one? At that point just sell the note 10+. Such a shame they even abandoned the no notch campaign they teased apple over.

    And of course iPhone 11 with a 720p lcd panel? Yeah it's cheaper because it's made with specs that any other phone company would've sold for 399.

    Such a shame to see this video. It feels like it was rushed, or am I missing something here?

  28. I don't know about you guys but I still use headphone jack and IR blaster…


  30. What was that Supreme phone LOL

  31. If I know anything about Google, they NEVER learn

  32. You should make a tech podcast, you'd be popular

  33. I'd have picked Moto razor over galaxy fold. That's a more well rounded product.

  34. waiting for Huawei phones from your channel in next year 2020.

  35. your content is trash now.

  36. Happy to see the death of the headphone jack. Legacy ports that have only one purpose are no longer needed.

  37. I have the Pixel 3a. I absolutely love it.

  38. Damn… Straight burned the Pixel 4. Totally thought it was going to make the list since it was on the table.

  39. Pixel 3a is their new Nexus 5 🙂

  40. I feel like the Galaxy Fold launch is kinda like the Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics lipstick launch
