"Let's summarize all the memorable cell phones from 2018, because there are so many great ones"
"Awesome. What about that … "
" Oh, I know! That of, er … "
" I remember the other phone that had … that thing. "
Why was getting these phones so expensive? Maybe it's old, or in 2018 there were far too many great phones that filled our brains properly. Or maybe we forgot these phones for a reason. After putting our memories to the end, there are five phones that have forgotten in 2018 before the year is up.
Forgettable's # 1 was announced in May and caused a sensation in the early weeks but not in a good way. The phone exchanged trusted, reliable physical keys for stupid, unreliable digital keys. It is the perfect example of an "innovation" that we would rather forget. The glass on the back of the phone and the shimmering colors helped to save the U12 Plus, but if Huawei, Vivo, Oppo, Xiaomi, and Samsung all do so, it's not enough to get the synapses up and running six months later put it went on sale.
What does HTC intend to do since then? Surely it got us excited with a better phone? The mid-range HTC U12 Life and the HTC Exodus are the only subsequent market entries in 2018, and we are in danger of forgetting not just the phones, but also the HTC itself.
What's the difference between these three LG phones, all of which were released in 2018? Is not it easy? The answer is not really important, because the differences are so small that most people do not need to know. For LG even worse, it did not matter to most people. The floors in LG's offices are paved with V Series and G Series smartphones that are not glued to the wall when thrown. These three may have stuck to the wall, but not in our memories, simply because no one stands out as an obvious "one-to-buy".
Although the HTC U12 Plus was forgetful because it was not very good, the LG phones here are forgetful because they are a bit boring. The screen lights up, the camera takes pictures and the battery needs to be charged. We used them all, but I can not remember an aspect that makes LG phone unique.
