It's just that for what i use it for, the note 2 is still a flawless device. and for those that seem to gripe about the software side of touchwiz, hell most the new feature in vanilla android seem to come from touchwiz, most the stuff they praise has been on notes and s series forever.
Anonymous, 10 May 2016They need to stop with the variants. Apple has many variants of its one iphone in each region... moreWhat region? This is Asiana variant. What part of the word 'Asiana' you dont understand? This is limited to South Korea only due to it being service by SK Telecom. Update? Well, only South Korea need the update. Simultaneous update like Apple for what? Apple update is notorious for its timely but destructive update. Every update by Apple destroys the iphone.

just putting forward an example..
i'm just saying this because i've gone through apple, samsung, sony and asus...none of them are perfect...wandering off topic again...
you are wrong......these phones are flagships, not premium, those phones are usually glittered with saphhire, gold and other complete nonsense stuff....

That s7 looks much nicer without the samsung logo on the front. Wish they'd adopt this on all samsung flagships.

That's Why Overpriced Phones Still Selling Like Hotcakes And There Are So Many Fanboys Out There
viveksubhash, 10 May 2016i think samsung should stop all this gimmicks..if one plus can make their phones at half your ... moreThe very reason samsung or apple charges such a high price for their phones is because the Chinese OEMs sell their phones at a cheap price. If the big companies would sell their phones for less, than everybody would have flagships. Then their won't be any gap separating the rich from the general people like us. They charge higher to put their phones in a different class of their own. That's why they'll never sell flagships that cheap. The sales figures show who is actually winning.
Again, you get what you paid for. Only specs won't give you the whole picture. You can get 80% of the bling at 50% of the price from the Chinese brands, but to get the next 20% you will have to spend 50% more which is exactly what the big brands offer.
This brings us to your next part of the statement. Just because you like vanilla, it doesn't mean that everyone will. I personally hate stock android. Why should I be spending that much on a phone just to get an OS that can be flashed for free? You can flash vanilla on any phone, but you can't flash touchwiz on any phone.
And if you think Touchwiz is bad, then ok, some me in what ways any another OS defeats Touchwiz while still providing the features that Touchwiz provides. If you think touchwiz is full of gimmicks then I guess you don't use your smartphones "smartly". Plus, you can always turn those gimmicks off and bring back on to show off. That's something that you can't for the phones that don't have these "gimmicks".
And thank you if you read this whole thing patiently. Bye.

Anonymous, 10 May 2016They need to stop with the variants. Apple has many variants of its one iphone in each region... moreThis is Korea only variant for specific people. Most likely nothing to do with you or anyone else in other region. As in it will not affect anyone's updates.
Look guys, you know the name Samsung and the word expensive don't differ that much. But let us be aware that this news aren't for the traveler masses. If you consider traveling 3x monthly, by the time you reap that 50k mileage, Galaxy s10 might be launching lol. There are many budget consumers, much more are dirt-poor one(I might be one) and there are many richies across the globe. It's just... not for us.
We often discredit a product on how we generally view the value for money as we see fit. I just passionately appreciate any details pertaining technology and features whatever the brand it might be. :) peace

It's an incentive by the way, not a flash sale. It's a pain if you focus on that 50k mileage though. A nice perk still, irregardless.

>Why would they? This variant is specifically catered for travellers. If it's just another s7 variant without much inclination, then i get your point.
" Apple has many variants of its one iphone in each region yet they manage to send the updates simultaneously. What is samsung trying to do with this remain to be known."
>Did you know the iOS history on updates? Those who updated the earliest had their data lost, security glitches etc. as the first-release updates tends to have nightmare bugs. Much like lab rats in my opinion. Not saying that Samsung is any different. They have their own time frames to release regionally. Their specific system for release, I only know that much.
"Even when samsung releases the update for one variant, other regions get it after a month or two
>This is sadly a fact. 2-month wait is quite long. I respect your opinion.
"And people online praise their phones"
>Among android phones, this is the strongest contender if not the king. There are many reviews ranging from harsh critics to a$$-kissers. They all uttered praises. Many factors were decided on why s7 is seated on the upper pedestal. Just don't be lazy to look it up online and you will understand.
I appreciate that Samsung envisioned this kind of thing. Who knows it might be extended for military, education or commerce.
i think samsung should stop all this gimmicks..if one plus can make their phones at half your price still carrying a sony sensor and sd820, that show how much of a profit you are making....now fanboys will say software development uses up money..well, its not like they have created the ultimate ui, samsung's touchwiz is one of the most criticized ones, people want the nearest thing to stock android plus a little glitter, not so much glitter that you choke on it, this is the same for lower end phones, check out lenovo zuk z1 vs ssamsung j7 recently released in indian markets, the pricing is similar but the specs are so different..i don't see how samsung is different from apple in this case
