Wish Samsung, or all phone manufacturers for that matter, would offer a slightly smaller model that still had the top specs. Like why not a 5.5 inch screen S10 that still has the in screen fingerprint sensor, the 3 rear cameras and a bigger batter for a similar price as the regular S10.

What phone are you using now? With the percentage of screen to body increasing, it's possible some current phones are around the same dimensions as your current phone.

S9. It's not bad, but if it were a little smaller it would be better for me.

S10e has the same display size and is actually shorter, thinner, and lighter, but wider than the S9. Not by much in all categories though.

Reviews I've read for the S10's three cameras are saying it's a bit of an overkill. I've never used the fingerprint sensors on any of my phones to comment.

Ah, I live by the fingerprint sensor on my phone. That said I won't be upgrading any time soon, the S9 has been solid and I'm not so keen on another Samsung yet there isn't anything else out there so great to spend money on a total luxury at the moment. The S10E does still have a sensor, just not built into the screen. In fact the placement on the power button might be better. I just find it silly that almost all the phone makers refuse to make a top of the line phone without it having a gargantuan form factor and screen. Even the S9, the S10, etc., you have to get the Plus to get all the features. Why can't there be a mini version that has everything the biggest one in the line have? But not some little midget phone, just something a little smaller than an S9 or the S10, maybe something with a 5.2 to 5.5 inch screen but with the same slim bezels to keep it small.

One day I'm going to go to the darkside as well and try an iPhone. Not right now though, while they don't have fingerprint sensors, headphone jacks and randomly Facetime people in your contact list without you knowing. :lol:

Any recommendations for a water filter? Probably looking for a counter top one and looking to stay at $100 or under.

Considering that smartphone adoption has plateaued, I think this will happen soon enough, especially for the iPhone which failed to meet sales expectations this past year. Apple has been able to get by for several years with forcing the customer to adopt their changes without any substantial backlash (I.e. lower sales). However, sales predictions missed so badly this year that I don’t think they can ignore the growing discontent from iPhone owners who for whatever reason (e.g. will only upgrade to another SE size iPhone, refuse to upgrade to a phone without a headphone jack).

I highly doubt that the headphone jack is coming back but an updated iPhone SE will garner a ton of interest.

On a different note, I don’t think it makes sense to get an iPhone unless you’re planning to go all in on the ecosystem and enjoy then benefits of having seamless continuity and integration across several devices like the phone, watch, tablet, and/or computer.

One day I'm going to go to the darkside as well and try an iPhone. Not right now though, while they don't have fingerprint sensors, headphone jacks and randomly Facetime people in your contact list without you knowing. :lol:

I think Samsung wipes the floor with Apple on features and price, if you’re only interested in having an Apple phone.

Giants trade Odell Beckham to the Browns for a 1st and a 3rd + Safety Jabrill Peppers. Good return imo for the Giants despite the 16 mil cap hit.
