Well done. You got a thumbs up from R2D2. Something I'm sure we all strive for on this forum.

Can you imagine anyone going from an iPhone to that abomination? I just can't fathom how a single person would ever want to use that phone. It would make a fine punishment for a teenager to have to use a Samsung Galaxy S5 for a week instead of their iPhone.

If you think that this http://youtu.be/q0G9yasVKyo is "pretty much the same as the iPhone," then you need your eyes tested.

Not really pertinent to the point the IAM Mag article was making. 1rolleyes.gif

But you're correct that phones (and their OS's) sometimes have problems, particularly at first.

The Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and Sony Xperia Z2 are not "significantly cheaper" than an iPhone 5s let alone the 5c.

 

The usual load of lies.

Better than my Bose, better than my Skullcandy's, listening to Mozart through my LeBron James limited edition PowerBeats by Dre is almost as good as my Sennheisers.

Let's start with the triangle with the exclamation in it (indicating a system error). I'm sure that some tampering has gone on. Plus anyone can find a video of a malfunctioning cellphone.

I should add that I don't now or have ever owned ANY Samsung product.

 

Excuses...

The phone is a demo unit.

The exclamation point is there because the phone is in 'demo mode' or whatever it's called.

I guess there's no "excuse" for the 'non-demo unit' iPhone in the video either. That must be representative of all iPhones using your logic.

That iPhone is clearly broken.

Where's the indication that this S5 is?

Also, my video showed how badly thought the S5 interface is, it's not only about lag.

Something is clearly wrong with that S5 as indicated by the error triangle icon. There is an app for the demo mode that wouldn't show that icon. At least the S5 is telling you that something is wrong where that iPhone isn't. And honestly, do you think all S5's work exactly like the one in the video? Really?!!

 

Point is, not every phone - no matter who the manufacture is - comes out working correctly. We can play dueling videos all day. Also, the interface is a matter of taste and unlike the iPhone can be changed to suit your needs or wants.

Part of that "something wrong" is Samsung's Touchwiz overlay on stock Android. The S5 might have impressive internals but when a $130 (that's right) Moto E is more responsive than a $700+ S5 then Samsung is absolutely doing something wrong. It's not Android to blame for the lag.

You're absolutely correct—something is wrong with that S5; it's made by Samsung.

I already told you, that triangle only comes from a notification that says that the phone is in demo mode. You can clearly see it when the notification pane is opened in the video.

Honest question: Maybe I'm understanding this wrong but aren't there three separate notifications? Demo mode is a circle with a lower case "i" in it. The error is a triangle with a "!" in it.
