We’ve had lots of amazing Android phones in the last few years, but I think it’s been a while Injury Instruments. You know, something that everyone wanted, even if it means deviating from their favorite OEM for a year. In my mind, I think phones like OnePlus One, Moto X, Galaxy Nexus, Motorola DROID, and Galaxy Note 2 are hit phones. These phones have the ability to change the landscape, which seems like something we haven’t seen at all.
That said, who are you to expect that next hit Android phone? I understand that this question can be difficult, because it may require some people to look past their own biases, but try to think of it purposefully.
Personally, if the stars are aligned, I would expect Sony to create the next Android device that everyone wants to get. They have an amazing history with hardware, so all we need now is some love for the US market. It’s as if they were all pieces, but really scared to give it a shot. Maybe a PlayStation-branded Xperia device focused on gaming, couples with exclusive access to some kind of streaming game service? That can be awesome.
I also hope that Nothing has a very successful launch with Phone 1 and the same is true of OSOM. There are these little players who can surprise us with new ideas. Who wouldn’t love that? And since we’re talking about it, I believe the Pixel 6 had a chance at great success, but Google’s own software Fumble didn’t let that happen. The company has run a big marketing campaign on that phone, only to tarnish its reputation for bugs and other issues. That one hurts.
So let’s hear your acceptance. Remember, try to be purposeful and thoughtful, but in the end, there is no wrong answer.
