Protocol, 26 Jan 2014The difference is, I've used the Wave 3, the last Bada flagship. I still have it in my drawer.... moreI have Wave II and have used it as well.
And the apps and internet are no where near that bad.....In it's lack of developing and aging it is becoming so for the simple fact that things are moving forward. Not because they were terrible at the time.
And of course...Same thing everyone says...Oh Android is just launchers and wallpapers...Yes they have a lot of them....because they can use them so therefore they will have them....And it does not mean non of them are high quality, well developed, or that there are not numerous others. Take away launcher and live wallpapers and there is a huge advantage.
And for me using FB on WP is like using it on a feature phone. I was not bashing WP for not having apps or what apps they do have. I was pointing out simple fact. And you cannot say one OS lacks apps as a bad thing in comparison to another that does as well...Especially one heavily more used and developed now...Plus WP is the evolution of WM. I'm pointing out that is a pointless statement/comparison.

I still have it in my drawer. I just use it for calling these days. Internet browsing on Bada OS is a very frustrating experience and most of the apps and games are just useless. All in all, it was a fail OS. Yes, I agree you with you that WP8 OS doesn't have as many numbers of applications as available on Android and iOS but Android has lots of crap apps, I mean copy of popular games and apps, live wallpapers which count as applications too, different themes for Launchers so that makes up 40 percent of the total apps. WP8 store, on the other hand, is clean with less crap applications. There's quality over quantity in the WP8 store compared to Android apps store.. I find most of the apps and games available in WP8 store which is 100 times better than Bada store.
Gelvin - Maximus, 25 Jan 2014You do realize that it is not just the flagships which sells more than mid-low-rangers? How ma... moreI'm sorry. I do not understand hurt troll retaliating in ridiculous anger.
So as long as that is your issue I have nothing to say to you...Except read the whole comment better and relate that to other companies as well.
forcing consumers to buy only "samsung-approved" accessories simmilar to that fruit company along with their own not Android OS? Yuup I think samsung is copying things a company does that I do not give my hard earned money to. But they want to be like them?... hmm..... I wonder if they will get sued regarding copyright infringement crud?

How many mid-low rangers are getting 4.2 which are on 2.1 and how many mid-rangers which are on 4.2 will receive 4.4? I am sure you got a brilliant answer because if that turns out to be opposite, you would then be a defensive troll.
Samusung the way it has dumped Bada OS, user's will not have faith in samsung's new Tizen too, Tizen will be in similar lines of Android, or IOS. they is no guarntee after 1-2 years it will be dumped too.

Its all about the features, innovations and user powerment. Leave the nonses for the shallow, useless, fanbase, or you are one of them?

Protocol, 25 Jan 2014Bada OS is a shit OS. Yes, at that time like in 2011, WP OS lacked applications but it's 2014 ... moreYeah the difference is you never used Bada. I actually used WP. I know how many apps are not there. Yeah it's 2014 and they got many basics down, but no where near Android or IOS.
All phones will hang at some point. Ios sure did it A lot and even WP 8 did it.
Time to start using reality as a basis for comments.
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2014Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand they are shoving internet-connected appliancesTasteless internet connected appliances i may add. Samsung has so many ridiculous products, western people have no idea how tasteless this company actually is because the worst of it never was sold there.
Well, its good for laughs anyway, i cant get over the combination refrigerator-TV, how insane was that, omg...

Yes, at that time like in 2011, WP OS lacked applications but it's 2014 and most of the important apps and games are available on WP8. You wouldn't know it if you haven't used a WP8 phone. Yup, Bada games were compromised on quality front. Well, most of the games on Samsung store for Bada are just plain boring and some doesn't even work as they should, causing the phone to hang.

Dr. A, 24 Jan 2014One of the biggest reasons for Samsung success is that they were not responsible for the OS. ... moreThe reason is not because they were not the OS creator. It's the OS they used which happens to not be made by them. Entirely different meaning. If Android was exactly the same, but made by Samsung would that then have meant that it would not have worked?
Anonymous, 24 Jan 2014The main reason I would not buy another Samsung (I've had three Galaxy models in the past) is ... moreHere in reality the only Galaxy with bad support was the Galaxy S1.
The S2 made it to Jelly bean.
The S3 made it to 4.3 and is soon to get 4.4.2.
The S4 is also getting 4.4.2 and is gurranteed to get at least the next version as well. Note 2 and 3 also getting 4.4.
Even the minis are getting 4.4 and the possibility of other cheaper devices as well.
Most others are working just to get their 2013 line up on the same schedule as Samsung's 2012 flagships. So troll again.
