Seriously at a grand, for all the things the S8 can do would be a bargain. The note 8 can do even more. There is objectively no other consumer electronic device that can replace so many pieces of equipment the pro audio features alone are equivalent to more than a grand worth. Samsung already has the slimmest profit margin since their devices encompass so much more technology than the iPhone and even other android devices. The pixel was priced at 750 and you'd be hard pressed to argue that it's worth that much more than the one plus 3t which has superior hardware. The only thing the pixel offers over the one plus 3t is its camera. Galaxies in the other hand can be used by musicians and audio engineers, artists, photographers, and is even certified for use by the NSA thanks to Knox and all the optimization and security features it offers. The pixel runs stock android and can only run basic apps no better than an emulator in windows can.
