Take a look at this:

Android OEMs should be able to customize the UI only slightly, because customizing it beyond what's shown in this video unnecessarily slows down the updating process.

Samsung only cares about your f in money. Their warranty is flat out disgraceful. Sure it's "2 years" but their service is utterly garbage, and it's so broken. It's just a f in mess. This is no surprise. I'm surprised they are doing so well considering their are other android phones out there.

Apple cares about screwing over their competition.
Samsung cares about screwing over their customers.

Read this very carefully GSMArena users.

Do not start demoralizing Samsung because of a very tricky exploit.

Think carefully before you comment. This was not an obvious flaw and someone has taken a lot of time in trying to find it.

No need bash, flame or start troll wars.

Just recognize this is an issue, appreciate the company has confirmed and has announced they're trying to fix this asap, and move on.
