Samsung fans will rejoice and rub this feature in iPhone users' faces.
Can't you just disable "Samsung Push Service" in the settings for apps?
Really, really, really bad idea.
I would say this even goes against consumer rights.
One thing is to have ads in a specific app which you can decide either to install or not, another thing is putting the ads directly in your device's OS or preinstalled software, making you unable to choose.
Remember that this will have an effect on your battery, processing and Internet speeds and ads to your Internet traffic.
I know that kindle has done it, but if I remember correctly, you had, two versions of the device: the add free at a discount, and the normal one, and that makes it totally different because you then have a choice.
Samsung, get your stuff together or I'm going to start losing respect for you.
Why? becasue their devices are so cheap that they need to make money some other way :?
Akinaro, 22 Aug 2015Its remind me Cinema today: You pay almost 30$ for ticket, movie should start at 20:00 but be... moreI actually loves thoae ads in Cinema. They tell me what to watch next. At least it shows the latest trailer of movies.

In Poland they put 3-4 ads and 3-4 trailers of new movies and 20-25 minutes later move is on. That's why im coming 20minutes after it starts :D
ofcourse I understand like in TV if you have free channels you watch ads every 30-40minutes while watching movie but if you are paying money ( HBO ) there are not ads while movie is playing. So at cinema should be the same - Im paying and don't want to see ads
for me its bad move what Samsung is doing..
Haha, if there wasn't already enough reasons to not buy a Samsung...
Akinaro, 22 Aug 2015Its remind me Cinema today: You pay almost 30$ for ticket, movie should start at 20:00 but be... moreThats why you better download the mkv file of that cinema, and watch it from your phone/laptop.
Its remind me Cinema today:
You pay almost 30$ for ticket, movie should start at 20:00 but before movie you watch... 20min of adds...
Its F hilarious dont you think? You pay for something... and you still need to watch adds!
Now its gonna be like: Hey! I bought phone for 1000$ and before every call or app use, I need to watch 10sec ad's! how cool is that?
Samfans be like "Best feature ever.. Does your crapple show you ads??"
halo world, 21 Aug 2015hahaha what next samsung must we watch a 5:00 ads to check the calls ?!! Good idea.
They can go the Amazon way. Show ads and heavily subsidise devices. However, it should NOT do it on the flagship phone Galaxy S, otherwise it will spoil the reputation. They can do it on, say, Tizen phones, or entry level droids.
That's why the first thing I do after getting a Samsung phone is to disable their bloatware like push service.
