    Console peasants be like: human eye can only see 30 fps.

      You know this is for ultra slow-mo right?

      You know that was a joke right?

    Better price this thing below $1000. less than $800 is better. I hope they’re not going to ride with Apple selling phones at $1600CAD. Back in the day $199 on a 3 year term was expensive but now with $1600 smartphones, I can’t imagine going to a store signing up with 2 year term on $799. Whew.

      That’s my wishful thinking too, keeping it sub-$1000 or lower. Yet going by present trends (upwards), I think that wishfulness is going to be short-lived.

      Not gonna happen. Too many new consumer designer/vanity products and services aimed at those with too much money or credit to throw around.

      The rest of us get dragged along. It’s said that the middle class is disappearing, but so is mid level products. If you can’t afford show off phones, you have to start looking at low end Chinese stuff.

      Agreed, very unlikely to happen. But if Samsung carries on with their curved displays my wallet will stay closed anyway – Already own the GS7 Edge, and although a very nice device, finding curves have been a slight hindrance and still finding that aspect hard getting used to.

      I’m seriously contemplating focusing on the lower tier phones myself just because I feel we’re being gouged for technology that’s really not all that innovating. Pricing trends appear to be “because we can” and an attempt to keep pace with the competition – All flagship manufactures have been heading in this direction.

      I saw a blackberry priv last week on bestbuy and staples. it was on sale for like 300 bucks unlocked. It was tempting but im not sure if it was worth the money. The display looks fantastic though and so far it runs on latest Android. Maybe the performance may not me a buttery smooth as Samsung A5 or Xperia XA.

      Since the Priv, BB has been catching my eye ever so slightly but not enough to dive back in. Still haven’t gotten over the shenanigans of 2012 and prior, maybe one day we will.

      I’m strictly Android and I gave up on Samsung after my S7. Did not want now or ever the tall skinny curved edge phone with stupid fingerprint sensor placement.

      I was always against anything designed and produced by a Chinese company, but I was proven wrong again (happens once in a while), when I got the Huawei P10+.

      I was after a flat normal aspect ratio super bright screen and a BIG battery. This phone delivers plus too many improvements over the S7 to mention.

      Not fond of the “ruler” design either, like a wee bit more meat on the hips than that.

      I stuck w/the S7 series (have both) as they have treated me very well, hard to ask for anything more but I’m sure if we got a taste of it we wouldn’t complain. 😉

      Anyhow, flat display is “ME” and nothing else will do once we’re done with the GS7 Edge.

      Yeah, the offering from Chinese phones from Huawei, XiaoMi and etc may be appealing but I always have my doubts regarding spyware and built-in vulnerabilities. It may be just me, but I feel that the phone is not secure enough. Like that feeling there is a software that is lurking inside the OS monitoring or stealing data for future use that no one knows about except the manufacturer.

    • h2oflyer

      I had the same feeling, until I realized that sleazy Samsung was probably worse.

      I’m thinking every OEM should just slap 15% margin to cost…same with cars, just slap 15% margin to cost.

    • Garrett Cooper

      Good luck with that.

    • Jason

      Until people stop buying $1000+ phones they will keep making them and at higher and higher price points

    • Elky64

      You know how that goes “not gonna happen”

  • bigshynepo

    Watch the reviewers fawn over this feature after totally dismissing the 960fps the Xperia phones had as a tangible selling feature…

    Just FYI: 1000 FPS is not the same as “1000 pictures a second”
