What Makes a Flagship Device? (39:00)

We used to live in simpler times. Five years ago, there was only one iPhone, one Palm Pre, one Nokia N8, and one Xperia X10. Each mobile company’s flagship phone was readily identifiable. But then 2011 and the inexorable rise of Android happened, and now the very idea of a flagship is starting to feel dubious. Is LG’s best phone the G4 or the V10? Is Samsung’s flagship the Galaxy S6 or the Note 5? And which iPhone is Apple’s most important one?

One phone no longer fits all

In today’s mobile world, every smartphone manufacturer recognizes that one size isn’t enough to fit all. Google has the single-handed Nexus 5X and the extra-large Nexus 6P, which are neatly matched by Microsoft’s 5.2-inch Lumia 950 and 5.7-inch 950 XL. Beyond the aforementioned iPhones and Galaxy devices, Sony has an established habit of producing its flagship device in two sizes, and Motorola has even contemplated screen size as an option for its Moto Maker customization service.
