As a Note 2 owner: stock rom and only trusted market apps. I am not worried about issue, Samsung still the best on the market. S4 and Note 3 will prove it again.

Acknowledging and repairing the flaw is exactly what any ethical company will do. No one can expect any company to produce flawless phones or chips anyway.

They managed to screw over their legitimate customers who paid $55 for their app.

On which platform did this occur? iOS. :-P

And how many epidemics does android have? None. Please get in touch with ground realities.

"ios and windows also sometimes chrashes"

When in fact, it very very very very rarely crashes in comparison to android bro. Don't even try to drag the other 2 innocent ios along with your glitched android. Android's has malware galore and its not even close.

We don't mind at all Samsung, as your making a fix.

Android is the best.
Malware is on WP and Apples as well.

Ahh it happens... and to every company. wow that might shock some of u. Rival it companies they all like to point the fingers. And many "news" companies like to make it a big deal of nothing...nothing new there, sure they have a $$ agenda and maybe some of that is rival money too. For me just pleased they fixing it .. quickly please. Just brought this thing a week ago. Really like it too. Not as a brick u can understand.
