-What smartphone are you using now?
LG G6. Samsung S10 is on it’s way.
-What are the top 3 things you would never sacrifice on a smartphone?
Multi-lens camera (ultra-wide mandatory), battery life, minimal bezels, ability to work on CDMA based carriers. I’d have a very hard time giving up removable storage because the cost of a phone with 512mb+ is insane.
-If you can choose to sacrifice 3 things on your smartphone to make it cheaper, what are they?
Most powerful processor, fingerprint sensor, front camera (I NEVER use it). I might be able to be convinced to give up the headphone jack for more battery.
-There are already so many brands with many great products in the industry, is there still a unique value or innovation that Eve & the community could bring to smartphones?
New phone for the Google Fi network. Windows if that comes back to life. Flagship phone in a smaller package. Rugged option.
-Describe the next smartphone you want to buy (it can already be on the market, or maybe you want Eve to make it)
Size somewhere in the neighborhood of the Samsung 10e/10 and iPhone X/XS, IP68 or Ruggedized design, triple lens camera (Wide/Normal/Tele) with great night performance and fast auto focus or something like the Nokia 9 but with variable focal length, decent processor (power efficiency is more important than computing power) and go heavy on RAM, 128GB storage, removable storage, 2 day battery life or removable battery, case material that supports use in cold weather (I mean cold- I want my phone to work well down to 0F), USB C, headphone jack, speaker(s) that works well (doesn’t need to be amazing), no selfie camera, good screen (good color and the ability to see it outside are more important than resolution) with minimal bezels, ability to run Android and Windows (if iOS was possible I’d say do it), I don’t care about WiFi 6 or 5G right now, newest BT would be good tho, works with every carrier system, Google Fi certified, MODULAR and user serviceable.
