I can't understand how the base model s20 is so much but Google's brand new Pixel 5 is $799.. Don't get me wrong, I love Samsung's products but their prices do nothing but draw me away from that ecosystem I've been trying to stay within.

Hopefully the next Samsung flagship will be more budget friendly because I'm not upgrading until then.

Samsung phones are still way overpriced.

A flagship phone should be $999 at most not almost $2000!

Samsung made over 10 billion in profits 3rd quarter. I know this isn't just from phones but **bleep** give us little guys a break..

honestly I won't pay no more than 1200 for a phone for the pro/ultra/max or whatever fancy selling word they use. the jumps in advancements are minimal in some cases phones are going backwards. I call it blinded by the light ( something new and shiny)

ya it seems crazy to me when the lowest "base model" regular S series device start at $1300 CAD. rewind back to 2019 the most expensive S10 was $999 CAD. that seems like the good ol'days.
