“Upper mid-range phone“, COME ONNNN.
If it was gold plated with diamond encrusted edging you’d still call it an “upper mid-range phone”. This is because you’re a “tech journalist” and you are singularly unable to see past “Samsung/Apple”. “Oh, oh…umm, well I see that it matches the flagships spec for spec here but, well, I can’t see ‘Samsung’ or ‘Apple’ mentioned anywhere, so it must only be ‘upper mid-range’ at the most. Yes”.
Also note how they mention “has a Snapdragon 865, like the Samsung S20 range in America”. Yes. ONLY in America. In other words, the vast majority of Samsung S20 phones DO NOT have a Snapdragon 865 in them, they come with this shite attempt by Samsung to cobble together an alternative, that starts overheating when you text on WhatsApp. So no comparison to make then, for the majority of the fucking planet.
I wonder why I don’t pay any attention to “tech journalists” or “tech writers”. And actually an even bigger question I have is who DOES pay any attention to these fucking clueless idiots??
