We asked, you told us…
First of all, thank you! Thank you to all that have cast a vote in our polls across the site, it makes us feel good to know that we’re usually in agreement about what manufacturers are doing right, and what they’re getting terribly wrong. We can tell you that the manufacturers are watching as well, so if you are looking for one more way to let a phone maker know they’ve done something worth talking about, be sure to get involved in future polls.

We’ve also been thinking about Huawei, both their problems and their attempts to overcome them. Finally, we’ve been watching the PC processor and GPU markets, wondering if there are any lessons that phone chip makers should be paying attention to.
