Not so long ago, photos appeared on the web, which captured the Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S line of smartphones, which includes the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra, should be the next flagship line from Samsung. The main feature of smartphones, according to rumors, will be a display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. This feature attracts many today, and we have already talked about its advantages more than once, but today we are not talking about that. The image, which flaunts the Galaxy S20, revealed the main problem of smartphones in 2020.
What is the main disadvantage of smartphones in 2020
What is the main problem with smartphones? Their similarity with each other, monotony. Let's see what the Galaxy S20 looks like:

And now I propose to recall what the Galaxy A50, A70, Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite look like – all of these devices were presented during the past month.

It's funny how they all look alike. And even the flagship looks the same. Now, one simple question – who would buy a $ 1000 phone if it looks almost the same as a $ 300 device? Of course, many people want a good camera and performance, but mostly people choose a phone based on its looks.
Samsung has made the budget models similar to the flagship in order to increase market share. However, by doing so, Samsung is reducing sales of the flagship S20. Let's take a look at what last year's flagship Galaxy S10 looks like:

Is there any difference compared to the S20? I don't notice her. At least, it will definitely not be associated with the appearance of gadgets. Galaxy S10 owners will definitely not run to the store to buy Samsung's new flagship, while losing a lot of money selling a supported device and buying the S20, which has risen in price compared to last year. And even S9 owners are unlikely to want to change their device.
Also, let's take a look at what other manufacturers' devices look like – they are all similar and offer a borderless front screen with a notch or slide-out camera. At least the OnePlus 8 Lite can hardly be distinguished from the Galaxy S20.

The rear panel is the only difference between the devices, but even here the companies are leaning towards similar colorful iridescent bodies with square bezels for the cameras.
There are no original devices on the market
Everyone is tired of smartphones Google, Samsung, LG, Huawei, Xiaomi, Meizu. Companies are used to using the same branding and style from year to year. This has led to the fact that consumers are bored with the same type of smartphones. Where can you buy the same unusual phone for your time as the Essential Phone, for example? At one time, Motorola Moto X was also unique, it offered an individual design for each consumer.
There is simply no smartphone on the market that could attract due to its uniqueness and originality. The Galaxy S20 is powerful and the camera is sure to be great, but what good is it if you don't enjoy holding it in your hand? In my opinion, companies should not get hung up on branding; in extreme cases, it needs to be changed frequently. Plus, it's now even harder to stand out with smaller bezels and larger displays.
It is interesting to know the opinion of readers on this matter. How do you feel about the fact that all smartphones have become monotonous? In my opinion, even the Galaxy Fold 2 or Huawei Mate X is not very attractive precisely due to the fact that they do not offer a completely new design that would not be similar to the previous phones of companies and smartphones of competitors.
