Herodroid, 01 Oct 2016open iphone, and you will see samsung logo on the battery :)You don't even need to open a Samsung phone to see the Apple component. It's all over :)
I think its just a better way to make money from the consumers,
since this year apple has launched a "2014" edition of android edition !
and also since the sales has gone down of the iphone ! its a better idea to make another lump sum of money !!
ONE FINE DAY, IN THE HISTORY, IT WILL BE "THE APPLE", anything you need to do, consult apple first to get the work done !
" ITS JUST A CRAP "
BoardDWorld, 01 Oct 2016I've only used the gmail app for a few seconds to see what fields of an email could be copied,... moreGood job getting Xiaomi! I recently moved from crApple to Xiaomi. They're outstanding, they provide more freedom to users than any other OEMs. I also used Sammy once, found it very crappy and distasteful.
No fanboy, 01 Oct 2016Haha... you said samsung overpriced because they are using snapdragon and android. Did you kno... morei fail to see the point of what you said. Yes i know apple designs the components and then companies like samsung build the. It makes sense that since a component needs to be made by another company, the company will need to make profit and hence the cost increases.
Samsung has factories, they sell their technology to other companies. Exynos, amoled screens, ram, storage. They sell it. They make profit. Samsung software is the worst. Touchwiz is the worst android skin. My S5 was so bad I couldn't live with it until i rooted it and put a custom rom. You do realise that the use a ready OS right? All they need to do is use their existing factories to develop the components. It should be much cheaper. Why are phones that use samsung components, with similar specs to the galaxy line up, more expensive than the samsung models?
Of course a company that sells fridges, ovens, speakers, washing machines, tvs, mobile phones, tablets will spend more on R&D. You don't see that Samsung is a supplier! Apple focuses only on computers and mobile devices.
No fanboy, 01 Oct 2016Haha... you said samsung overpriced because they are using snapdragon and android. Did you kno... moreSamsung semiconductors, cameras, mobiles, etc are all dufferent department. Samsung mobiles has to buy SoC from Samsung semiconductors and so on. Samsung mobiles might be leading thanks to overpriced phones but rest of them are not, no matter how much they spend on R&D.
If only Samsung mobiles actually spent money on R&D and QoC they won't have a problem like Note 7 at their hands.
In fact Samsung semiconductors spends more money on R&D than Samsung money even though the former is at heavy loss.
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2016Say that again to my Nexus 6P, ads in Play Store, YouTube (not in video but between searches) ... moreI've only used the gmail app for a few seconds to see what fields of an email could be copied, it was useless for my needs, Xiaomi's mail app is better than anything else, also no ads. But just to point out, gmail is free, as is YouTube which has unavoidable adds across all devices.
The Play Store will push an app for a general search, like "Hotels" and Agoda will be first with the Ad tag, but it won't have any larger screen area than any other app. Apple seem set to impose on screen area just to push an app. However with Play Store and a specific search, say "booking.com" and Agoda will be down the list with no Ad tag and Booking app first.

Just to put this straight, Android does not have adds unless it's a free app. The Play Store does not have adds. I've never had a single add in the 2 years I have been using Xiaomi's Android based phones.
If you do have adds you either don't have official firmware or your Carrier has bloated it.
However "Apple" adding adds is just wrong. People pay to not have adds with the excessive amount they must pay for the device in the first place.
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2016Apps that are free on android are also free on iOS. You can download a file manager for free. ... moreLol iBoi I've had an iPhone, you can't even choose the songs you want to transfer through iTunes, you either choose the album or the artist. You wouldn't be so defensive if you've used a recent Android flagship (not Samsung or LG though). Samsung and LG over complicate their UIs.
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2016How is an iphone overpriced when in most western countries it is the same price as the latest ... moreHaha... you said samsung overpriced because they are using snapdragon and android. Did you know apple only design their CPU (gpu design by powervr) and ios while the rest of the components are from other companies. Samsung designed exynos mongoose core(gpu from arm mali and there are snapdragon SOC version too), ram, memory storage, display, and even battery so which one is more depending on other companies. Even samsung made to the top 5 companies that spent the most money for R&D
