Doesn't look as good as Huawei's gradient color.

Seems a lot more muted compared to Huawei's.

Trying very hard Samsung to get sales in low- mid- high range phones. Chinese phone will come on top for the mid and low end phones and apple will still lead in the high end phones and profit.

Which is why Apple is 3rd in the world behind Samsung and Huawei.

Apple sales aren't down, Samsung sales are down whopping ten million compared to same time last year, just saying.

Apple sales aren't up either they have been stagnant for 3 years. I don't think Samsung will be too worried, they will sell 310 million phones this year instead of 320 million, not too bad for a year when they are only offering small incremental updates. When the S10 and Note 10 drop next year numbers will be back to normal.

"they will sell 310 million phones this year instead of 320 million," no they won't, there's still many months left this year and sales will still keep dropping, there's nothing what can change the direction. I'm sure samsung is very worried about their situation because it looks very bad. "When the S10 and Note 10 drop next year numbers will be back to normal." same thing been said every year, sorry to tell to you, but Samsung won't go up anymore their only direction is down.

Apple has only 3 phones not trillion phones around.

Colors like that might be a hit in Asian markets, like gold color things, so who am I to judge. IMO, it's tacky and childish.

They should do an uninspired red white and blue trifecta that is boring and dull. #innovation

I'm glad everyone is copying them, to my eyes, this looks better than one solid color. I love the P20 Pro's new white color, and this coming from someone who never ever liked or owned a white phone as far as I can remember.

Samsung copy all, but ugly.

Welp, guess now Samsung is copying Huawei with colors like many have said Huawei has copied Samsung with the design of the Mate 20 Pro, lol. Jokes aside, all smartphone manufacturers have copied from another manufacturer at some point.

Samsung has been doing different colors for their phones for years now.

No 'ish, Sherlock. That's common knowledge. But they haven't been doing the "gradient" colors, which is the whole point. You just wanted to say something to me as if I said something wrong, even though I didn't, because it's me.

Calm down. It's an open forum remember? I just wanted to point something out that you didn't seem to be aware of.

What does that have to do with the fact that you went into an orgasmic frenzy the moment you noticed that I made a comment here, hoping beyond hope that you could catch me saying something factually incorrect, only for me to prove you wrong and make a fool of you in the process?

33. Venom

Isn't that what you have been doing every time I made a comment? Haven't you done that multiple times in blackberry articles before I ran you off with the facts?

34. meanestgenius

Posts: 21485; Member since: May 28, 2014

Um, NOPE. I have run you out here several times with your other faux accounts, and even had you heading for the hills in your mxyzptlk account, which is why you deactivated it, lol. But you have never run me off of anywhere, but I sure do have you posting different (aka walking on eggshells) on BlackBerry articles, as well as have you following me around articles you've never posted on until I started to, like Huawei and Nokia articles. By the way, nice deflection from the fact that you couldn't prove me wrong about Samsung concerning the colors of their smartphone. "A" for effort and all that, lol.

You have never ran me out. Despite you still going on months after I made my first and only account, I'm still here. I ran you off blackberry articles because everything I said was the truth. The cold, hard truth. You should be thankful that I corrected your comment.

36. meanestgenius

Posts: 21485; Member since: May 28, 2014

Yes I have. I ran you out ever since your mxyzptlk account, and I've been doing it ever since, on through to your current account number 10. You can lie about how many accounts you have had and who you really are, but you're not fooling anyone. And if you ran me off of BlackBerry articles, then I wouldn't have commented on the current one. Now THAT is the cold, hard truth, not the fabrication you keep trying to push as fact.

Put on your antisamsung fanboy "cross" — the Apple logo, for protection from above.

Huawei is where they are now because they copied Samsung look and feel and sold it lot cheaper. Masses just didn't see reason to buy expensive Samsung phones that often anymore.
