Posts by Apple v. Samsung

Even that is subjected that vertical integration is superior when you fail consider that for every decision made their is a price. For allowing apple full control over the hardware then you are limited to what the device options are. I can easily say my option to buy a 6" screen is an advantage because of that trading off the vertical integration for the screen I want. You have to realize all off these things are going to be subjective. For me vertical integration makes...
...Do you know what open refers to in software? It does not mean the ability to install any app on the device. It means that you or I can download the source code to the software, compile it, and modify it and place it on any device I want. I can do this with Android it is open.
  Or possibly 5. They simply prefer android more then iOS as is my case. I have an HTC M8 and an iPhone 5s. I prefer android more due to several simple factors that many people I have encountered also enjoy. A. Ability to change default programs -Yeah this is a big one B. Hardware options - My HTC M8 has a far superior screen then my 5s. It is not just size, but color quality resolution and the HTC screen seems to float on the glass. C. Better notification/actionable...
I see no reason yet to distrust Google. They are best where they excell in. I love YouTube, I have been using gmail for almost a decade and honestly have no complaints. I have tried other search engines and they have failed. As far as adds go. By now Google has for better or worse a damn good idea of who I am and my interest ak its great when adds are tailored specifically to me.
HTC m8 aprox 15 months old and the international one is still getting support by HTC. At&t is a different story. The galaxy s4 from 2013 is still getting updates however. They are changing. Slowly but its happening. What needs to happen is some of the cooks need to be removed from the kitchen.
Not quite Samsung, HTC, lg, and Motorola have been doing a great job supporting their devices. (I mean the time it takes to take source code recode to the specifics of a device and test it). International phones get updates in under two months and many cases now. Remember Android is not iOS and these things take longer when you don't make the software.I personally for my Android phone use CM12 so I have been patched.
It's been my experience that apples Mac and ios developers kick ass. While their windows developers... I hope they can at least make a half decent attempt to make the app decent on Android. I hope they don't make it shitty just to say look this is because of Android becuase gplay music works well on apple and Android no excuses.
Real question are smart phone games worth my time yet. I have a gaming pc,Xbox one, and a ps4 I have never played a game on phone paid or free that was as imersive as ESO or GTA 5 or forza. I mainly use my 650 dollar phone for movies on the go and music.
Actually Apple does compete with samsung with compelling features. They do not do something like make an exclusive deal with art to be the only phone to use lte.Exclusive services is different then content. I know exclusives are going to happen. I.E. Sony and Gorrila games. But that is a second party situation. This iabas if M$ paid Rovio to make angry birds Microsoft phone exclusive.
As a lover of video games I can attest this type of exclusive is horrible for an industry. Since Apple and tidal entered this space its been talk of exclusives. Before when it was just Google, Spotify, rdio, and M$ consumers never had to double check how many of their favorite artists they would miss out when choosing one over another.Now I am going to most likely pirate this new album.
