The days of risk taking seem dead. As long as quarterly reports keep showing there is money to be made not much is going to change right?

Before we start focusing on design, I would honestly just love for shit to work the way it should. Why do I feel the pressure to change phones so often? Seriously why does the same shit come out every single year? To me its unbelievably infuriating that the price of these machines are growing, but the features I'm being given access to are not expanding in any real sense. Instead, I can pay 300 dollars for a galaxy note 7 (that could potentially blow up in my pocket) to literally scour the entire phone to find all this garbage on it I don't actually need. It will come with an even more ridiculous UI than the last iteration with features that are cool, but of no real use besides degrading my battery life quicker than before. After a year or two of all these "features" and "updates" my phone begins it's slow painful death, where I am prompted again by advertisements on why it will be better with the Galaxy Note Infinity. Before we worry about how all of this shit looks, can we at least make it work right...
