      Samsung needs a new Marketing Team they never promote actual cool useful features instead they only present one singular new feature for over an hour. Also they shouldn’t adapt to Apple every time they remove a feature since it hurts their uniqueness image. Also they shouldn’t use their Exynos Chips anymore they’re so out of date compared to the Snapdragon Chips.

        I’ve probably bought my last Samsung phone (Note10+). They lost me when they started copying Apple. No headphone jack, IR, etc. Not a marketing issue for me, just a features issue.

          Yeah they definitely lost me as well for a long time now.

          Reasons:

          • Shit Marketing/Shitty Launch Events
          • Copying Apple (Removing headphone jack, IR scanner, removable backcovers etc.)
          • No real innovation other than the Fold/Flip Series anymore (Still no real fast charging but charging an insane money for their devices etc.)
          • Putting the Exynos chip even in their flagships (Snapdragon is way better than the Exynos Chips it’s basically a scam if they sell the same model with a way worse chip that costs the same)
          • Putting intrusive ads on the set-up screen, making it easy for service providers to install random apps, Always trying to get you to use their apps (this not only happens on the A-Series instead also on the Flagships)
          • Producing the A-Series that the iSheeps will most of the time refer to when comparing the newest iPhone to Android (The A-Series phones are the most shitty phones you can ever use)
          • That they merged the Note-Series into the S-Series
          • More and more Bloatware installed right out of the box
          • Their new Galaxy AI (which they didn’t call Galaxy Brain) runs mostly not even on device and they’ll charge you for it in 2025 when they instead just could have said “We’ll let you use the On-Device AI Features for free but the Online Features will cost 4.99€/month/We’ll let you use the On-Device AI Features for free but the Online Features will only be free for 2 weeks after you bought the S24 Ultra from our Website after that time period you need to pay 4.99€/month for the online features” or they could’ve waited a bit longer to develop the AI for fully On-Device use and everyone would’ve been happy. Also that they advertised it as it would be an S24 Ultra exclusive is insane since not only the S24 Ultra gets it.

          For anybody who comes across this buy phones by the following companies instead of a Samsung:

          • Sony
          • Google Pixel
          • Nothing
          • Motorola

            i have an A-series, and have repaired many of then.

            they definetly push their services hard on those, and on devices that can barely run them well.

            OnePlus is also popular as an almost vanilla Android phone. My old phone was a Motorola, and that was absolutely amazing on the OS, Zero bloat or crap of any kind. Only an app for configuring Motorola specific features.

      Isn’t it easier & faster to read the first paragraph of the article than to post the question and wait for someone to answer?

        After waiting for the page to load, fighting through ads triggering redraws, dismissing cookie banners, closing the notification request…

        It’s a toss up.

            1 of 4 comments addressed. You showed me 😁

            I prefer privacy badger because it does more then block ads and is generally a bit nicer to sites.

            But really it was supposed to be a satirical comment on the state of the web anyways.

    Maybe, just maybe, Samsung needs to stop pushing its bloatware? They make great phones but even the non-technical folks are more and more getting turned off by Samsung’s bloat.

      I have a Motorola Edge 2023 and it’s so much more premium than I would have expected at its price tag.

        The Ultra version? Having the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra atm it’s way better than I expected shits on Samsung in every way. Though since I don’t think Motorola will release another Edge Ultra next year I’m gonna switch to Sony’s High End devices since they have great build quality, cameras, no Bloatware and aren’t made in China.

    Samsung is really only worth it for their high end models, their midrange had always been lackluster compared to their competitions (though improved in recent years), I’m surprised they lasted this long on top, especially since Apple’s SE has been gaining traction in recent years.
