Samsung :: Back to the future

by Volker Weber

Samsung announces two new flagship phones which are very similar to last year's flagship phones. And without a doubt they are even better. Splash-proof, dust-proof, hardly a camera hump. And they get better by cleaning up last year's mistakes. Fewer camera pixels and bringing back memory expansion via SD cards.

I have a wish for next year. Ship plain vanilla Android and make all of Samsung's bloatware optional. Especially TouchWiz.

Mal sehen, wo die Reise hingeht. Klasse, dass sich 'wasserdicht' langsam entwickelt.

Can't tell you how much I agree. I'm looking for a new phone and have restricted my search to phones with either cyanogenmod or stock Android. Not much out there. Especially not in the high-end range.

I have that same wish, Volker! Please stop the bloatware!!! (I just wished that they and the cell services would listen.)

Wobei viele TouchWiz-Funktionen durchaus nützlich sind (etwa SmartStay, DLNA-Integration). Und monatliche Updates für Sicherheit scheint Samsung ja jetzt auch zu machen.

Das kann ja dann jeder selbst entscheiden.
