The 5 biggest disappointments of Android in 2016

the 2016 year comes to an end. And as every year, the best of time. If overall, Android has spoiled us this year, we have also experienced some disappointments. The fiasco of the Galaxy Note7 to non output Pixel in France, back on the biggest disappointments of the year 2016.

1. The fiasco of the Galaxy Note7

hard to not start this list without mentioning this year certainly the biggest mistake in the Android world. For Samsung Mobile, it’s the biggest scandal ever lived by the brand. Explosions of many models of the phone because of the phone batteries have sealed the second half of Samsung. Already entangled in a succession struggle and a scandal of corruption in South Korea, Samsung would well have happened in this case of the Note7

2. Not out of the Pixel Google in France

the expectation around future Google smartphones was big. The Mountain View company doesn’t we generally disappointed. The Google Pixel and Pixel XL are two of the best photophones of the moment. They also offer the best Android experience that is on the market. Unfortunately, because of the unavailability of Google Wizard in french, the France saw private marketing. Result for people who want to get a copy, it must pass through the import box. Too bad.

3. The Prefet of the Sony design

Sony has always been recognized for the quality of its design department. However, it is clear that the last productions of the Japanese giant have lacked a little originality. The latest models appear to be a repetition of previous models. Neither more nor less. The phones are not necessarily ugly

if Sony wants new shine in the race to the flagships, the Japanese manufacturer must seriously rolling up my sleeves to offer slightly more and develop my style “Omnibalance”.

4. The modular flagship of LG

after a seductive LG G4, hopes were many for my successor. And although he welcomed the idea of offering a modular smartphone, the accomplishment was somewhat risky on the G5. In addition to the quite dirty price different modules, their low numbers and the system to change have not helped to the success of the smartphone.

Result? LG will probably stop its modular concept. However, it was not a bad idea. The bike Z is proof.

5. The smartwatches in general

the years pass and the smartwatches are still struggling to attract a wide audience. Despite their obvious progress (design, battery life, recharge, screen…), they struggle to seduce many Android users. A lack of features is certainly at the origin of this disenchantment. However, manufacturers should not despair. The end of the tunnel is maybe close. The connected objects and the hyper time is coming soon and the smartwatches will have an important role to play.
