I'd follow you... if the others weren't worst. Pixels have ugly defective devices (stupidly humongous notch, mismatched rounded corners and not to mention the never-ending list of defects) and the UI is Cheap Apple. Same for all Chinese OEMs, with the exception that they have even slower updates that may not even be real updates (XDA made a detailed analysis on the matter with OEMs reporting patches that weren't patched), plus they aren't quality material either, relying on buzzwords to sell instead. LG and Motorola have abysmal updates and Motorola doesn't seem to want to make flagships anymore. Sony has a good exception, though the design is an acquired taste, though it lacks a headphone jack and that's a big deal from someone that makes some of the absolute best wired headphones.
Kinda like politricks. You can't vote for the best since there's no such candidate. You pick the least worst.
@Chmultimedia I don't agree, Samsung is falling behind. Huawei got Samsung beat on the camera and specs... though yes, they are having issues that we all know about, and Google Pixel has Samsung beat on picture quality. OnePlus 7 pro has better specs than S10 +. The Asus Zenfone 6 is coming......
@Chmultimedia do you have an opinion as to how come the camera updates would not be delivered yet to Canadian S9+ models with this update? unwillingness of Samsung to work on this and push the minimal security update is frustrating while in Europe, along with Security update, there were camera and some UI updates included as well........ I haven't recieved the update yet so im basing myself on rumours that it will be just the security update.
