Re: Samsung's Problem

in the Article: Samsung to Use Curved Screens to Sell More Phones forum

Wouldn't you say Apple and to a lesser extent, LG get knocked off just as much?

Throttling
Oct 29, 2014, 11:22 AM
in the Article: FTC Sues AT&T Over Throttling Practices forum

Hate to say it, but throttling is a complete joke. I can understand slowing down speeds after 5GB, but to the point where literally nothing works is insane.

That's because you revised history
Oct 15, 2014, 1:56 PM
in the Article: Review: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 for AT&T forum

Before Steve Jobs along, plenty of people cared about the feel and look of their phones. See: The Wildly popular Motorola RAZR, the Motorola v60, the Sony Ericsson T610, the Nokia 3390, etc. Maybe you've heard of them. The second fallacy is that using cheaper materials ≠ durability. Samsung's cheap plastics crack as they age (especially the white ones), the silver paint rubs off, and the screens were historically more prone to cracking due to body flex (probably not true ...

Deal With It

No, it won't eclipse the iPhone. A 13MP front facing camera does not make the phone 'eclipse' the iPhone.

Let Blackberry Die Already
Sep 28, 2014, 6:06 PM
in the Article: BlackBerry Shows Off the Passport for Mobile Pros forum

For effs sake, there's no reason to buy this. No 'pro' is going to want to get anywhere near the terrible BB10 OS, nobody wants this awkward keyboard, and nobody wants to sell, support, or develop for these giant piles of crap. Blackberry could have just stopped making phones and brought back its brand equity a few years down the road, but instead they're tarnishing the legacy churning out round after round of total crap. Stop it.

THEY SHOULD HAVE STAYED AUDIO VOX

Why did they get rid of audio vox? Everyone loved audio vox communications- nobody knows what a Pantech is.

No. I've owned both and have been honest with my assessment of both, and unlike you, I've owned them. I don't gloss over Samsung building second rate products, nor do I gloss over some of their brilliant additions. Y'know, that's how I'm able to offer a counterpoint rather than accusing Phonescoop of being hypocritical any time they offer a glowing review of a competing product of my own.

"There's little doubt that you broke your screen, but no one knows under what circumstance." No, I explained the circumstances multiple times. Here it is again: it broke in my pocket from the stress, no impact. Either you aren't reading, or you're an apologist for Samsung's second rate phones. Given your other threads on this review, there's overwhelming evidence for the second case.

Glass doesn't bend

in the Article: Review: Apple iPhone 6 Plus for AT&T forum

Hence why it's a problem if the Galaxy Note bends. And what do you mean until I can show you otherwise? I'm on Samsung's social media wall (I even got a $10.00 gift card at Valley Fair) with my broken Galaxy Note screen.

So does the Galaxy note

Only it usually shatters because Samsung uses cheaper plastic.

Well, I own a Galaxy Note, a Moto X (Yellow+Blue) , and an iPhone, so deal with it.

Maybe you haven't seen the benchmarks the iPhone 6+ posts, but maybe you should and watch it obliterate every other phone on the market. The only phone that comes close? The year-old iPhone 5s.

Oh? Maybe 3 screen replacements ago I would have agreed with you, but the Note's just as fragile.

Yeah, this thing only seems about 1,000 times more capable than the G-watch.

Sep 9, 2014, 10:17 PM
in the Article: Apple Reveals the Apple Watch forum

When they originally announced the Mac Pro, no release date. Same with the iPhone. Same with every OS release. In fact, if anything, the Mac Pro's release date was even -more- vague. And again, Apple's got a pretty damn solid track record. Not only that, they've got a full-fledged SDK and have demo apps and infrastructure pledges from pretty major companies (SPG, American Airlines, etc.) You seriously mean to tell me if 'never releasing' this was on the table Apple ...

Apple's track record vs. Blackberry's Track Record
Sep 9, 2014, 8:10 PM
in the Article: Apple Reveals the Apple Watch forum

Kind of speaks for itself. (And uh, the original iPhone, the Mac Pro, and every OS release they've done comes to mind.)

Re: Catching Up
Sep 9, 2014, 1:55 PM
in the Article: Apple Shows Off iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus forum

Android 1.0 didn't even have a full virtual keyboard. And uh, yeah, willing to guess you haven't really used an iPhone extensively.

in the Article: Hands-On: Samsung Galaxy Alpha forum

It's not that Samsung can't sell phones with garbage build quality, it's that they could probably sell a lot more if they weren't such second-rate products. And uh, Samsung sales/profits are heading towards the crapper because Huawei, Xaiomi, etc. can build the same crappy phones Samsung can for a lot cheaper while Apple pretty much owns the high end of the market. And yeah, I'd like that my Galaxy Note's screen didn't crack due to body flex because I put ...

The original camera was kind of lousy- it was super grainy and had really terrible white balance. That said, the original X was a terrific phone (if sadly unreliable.)

Translation to English

in the Article: Hands-On: Samsung Galaxy Alpha forum

"Samsung has long been bashed for using what many describe as cheap plastics in its phones. I've complained about this myself, and I stand by those criticisms. Devices such as the Galaxy S series (S though S5) could have been much more appealing had Samsung put a little more effort into crafting certain aspects of the phone. With the Alpha, Samsung finally shows us that it can do better. " Translation: Samsung phones have felt like garbage because they're made ...

It has Samsung's notoriously accurate built in pedometer so you can argue with it over who is more wrong!

About 5 minutes if you go to a Genius Bar with an appointment, about 3 days if you mail it in.

Re: Just for perspective

in the Article: Samsung Refreshes Its Design Language with Galaxy Alpha forum

Well, it's not necessarily better than an iPhone, although it certainly is if it has a wider color gamut and can accurately represent sRGB space. That said, this won't be competing against the iPhone 5/5s, this is going to be competing against the iPhone 6 announced in 4 weeks.

Way to swing for the fences with this, Samsung.

How to Fix Sprint
Aug 7, 2014, 5:44 PM
in the Article: Sprint Hangs Up on Dan Hesse, Names New CEO forum

Sprint needs to quickly burn their existing plan system to the ground and start fresh. Their plans are bloated without being compelling. Their billing system is more confused than their poor CSR's (seriously, when has -anyone- ever gotten a correct Sprint bill?) Finally, figure out what the hell you want to be. At one time, Sprint was a high-feature high-value carrier (the trenchcoat man days.) Then they became the amazing x-ray specs carrier (The popular phone knockoff era). Then they ...

Sure, all things being equal. But a 64GB Internal phone > a 16GB Internal Phone with a MicroSD slot.

That 64GB can be used for system caching and applications. So it's better. Significantly.

HealthKit is to S-Health as iTunes is to Samsung Music Hub.

May 29, 2014, 8:36 PM
in the Article: Apple to Buy Beats Music and Electronics for $3 Billion forum

Yeah, especially the MacBook Air, Retina MacBook Pro (which have both received nothing but universal panning from The Verge, Engadget, Laptop Magazine, etc.), the iPad Air, the iPad Mini (again, total bunk ratings), the iPhone 5s and 5c (lowest ranked phone of all time...)

Re: funny

Actually, it was because HTC was spiraling the toilet, with their stock dropping 90% over 12 months on poor device sales.

The service was weirdly similar to Samsung Milk, which just... wait, why did they ever have both?

Their track record for quality? Terrible.

Re: Pretty much explains why Samsung copied Apple
Apr 18, 2014, 4:20 PM
in the Article: Review: Samsung Galaxy S5 for AT&T forum

Yes, because hating something that's terrible automagically makes someone a fanboy. That's the only reasonable explanation. Touchwiz adds about a quarter-second lag to inputs to handle the Samsung animations (there's actually a developer option to speed these up, which helps, but is absolutely asinine.) SD Card support in Android is a joke period. Why they don't include 32GB of internal memory is beyond me.
