    Samsung continues to drive incredible innovations to the overall Android experience. This is why consumers are choosing Samsung devices over those from HTC and Sony. Samsung is in the experiences business, and consumers want these amazing experiences.
    There it is again, that word. Innovation is not what Samsung is doing. Samsung is in the copying business. They're porting the Apple experience to Android, and a cheapened one at that.

    Every time I use one of their TV's, indeed, I am amazed by the experience! Frustration is one way of describing that, and I am sure others have fantastic and immaculate words for this experience as well.

    On androidauthority.com they said this about Samsung Wallet:


    "It’s so laughably similar [to passbook] that we’re kind of ashamed to call ourselves Samsung fans now, but such is life."

    I know that, was just anticipating what the other side will have to say about the latest blatent copying done by Samsung in my own sarcastic manner.  I thought I made my sarcasm clear but apparently not.  Thanks for looking out though :)

    I have an Android phone, and i would love to participate on Androidauthority's forum. They aren't biased, and they provide nice articles. The problem? Users. Even there they say Apple is paying them. lol

    LOL

    This headline should read:

    "Samsung steals Apple's wallet"

    Saddest part of the whole thing. They know and accept that it's wrong, but they couldn't care less.

    I caught the sarcasm of your post, I just thought maybe that within your sarcasm you asked a legitimate question, and you're welcome.

    It's somewhat of a niche product, that Apple needs more business development to make ubiquitous. I often wonder if Apple has any MBAs on staff.

    Well at least they're at Step 1, self awareness and/or self assessment. I don't think that they care less, more like powerless to do anything about it. They themselves can stop buying Samsung devices but cannot stop the other millions that do.

    Lets face it - This is Samsung's strategy. They should be ashamed, but they are not. It is blatant thievery but they hold their head up high and don't care. And on the whole, it is working wonderfully for them.

    I know you're kidding, but it is worthwhile having a (another?) look at how Samsung IS driving everybody else out of business, except maybe Apple. On Horace Dediu's Asymco website, from three months ago. Check out the graphs at the end of the article, and read some of the comments. Hair raising. It amounts to bribery to the carriers.

    This is just like passbook but with a bigger screen and bigger market share.

    I vote that Samsung changes their company name to some kind of fruit.

    Why does some company always have to take the Microsoft role with Apple?

    From his history, I would say he isn't kidding at all, which is hilarious.
