£1K barrier broken
"The best phone will probably be the next Google Pixel announced in the beginning of October, but it will probably cost around £1000."
This is the problem. Now the £1K barrier is effectively broken, everyone will start taking the piss and selling £1K devices because Apple and Samsung are getting away with it. Pure profit and greed.
What tangible real world improvements does the Note 8 really give over the Note 4? I'm all for new products, but this strikes me as a small incremental technology refresh for a serious hike in price.
Priced for the current market rather than actual technology value.
