>>52586197 They make some pretty good stuff and they come out with some pretty innovative products from time to time. I prefer Motorola for cell phones because Samsung phones have way too much bloat installed from factory but their other products are bretty good.
This word triggers my autism. The "proper" word is "regardless".
>>The prefix ir- (i-r) is a negative prefix, so if you add the prefix ir to a word that's already negative like regardless, you're making a double-negative word that literally means “without without regard.”
>>52587960 Part of the problem is carriers or relationship with carriers. My workmate has a Note 3 LTE and just a few days ago he got an update to Android 5.0. More than a year since the last update of any kind, 4.4.2 but in some countries that device had been updated to 5.0 five months ago.
Was it Samsung that was holding back the updates to other countries or was it the carriers?
>>52586197 cheapness and the image of quality. All but their top end offerings aren't that good, but because the top end stuff is good and looks similar to their mid and low end stuff normalfags think they're getting the full package, so to speak.
Damn though, their high end shit is pretty good. Top of the SSD market. I don't regret getting the 850 PRO. Fucking 10 year warranty. You can't beat that kind of product confidence in an SSD.
>>52587934 "Inflammable" is the original word, but then in the 1920s, according to Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of English Usage, the National Fire Protection Association started encouraging people to use the word "flammable" instead because they were worried people could mistakenly think "inflammable" meant "not flammable."
source: just fucking google "flammable vs inflammable"
>>52588161 >>52588200 You're pretty much are every time you buy a phone and keep its stock firmware.
The Note Edge wasn't released in my country, I bought an imported model so I am not locked to a carrier, but have you seen how many models of Note Edge there are ? At least 12 different models and even within those models there are different firmware for different regions (that have minor changes like having a different default search url for the default browser) and if you are updating through the device update or through Kies you need the update for your specific model and the specific update for the current firmware you have. So if your model is release in Singapore and Australia, but you have the Australian version and an update is released for the Singapore version but not the Australian you cannot update through Kies or device update to get the new update until it is released for the Australian version.
>>52588327 The problem largely stems from English being a bastard child of many languages. Language rules are inconsistent.
>>52588358 The question is why does it take months to push out a version update to the same device in different regions? It's understandable that their version release will lag behind Android stock because of Touchwiz, but you would want the release schedule to remain consistent.
>>52588400 I dunno, maybe they have to overhaul some features in language/region specific ways every update or something. Or maybe it's the service providers themselves dropping the ball. Either way, the average phone user doesn't really give a shit what version of Android their phone is running (if they even know in the first place) so it isn't a top priority to push updates in a timely manner.
>>52587718 Hell, they don't even support their flagships for a decent amount of time. For example, the note 3 released on 25 September 2013 but did not get android m which launched on October 2015 (slightly over 2 years from launch date)
>>52588415 Honestly, I don't know what the fuck Asus does with their devices.
With Samsung it's pretty easy, you just go to http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/ and search a device name to find out how many different models they have and then see the different regions and who is getting updates.
i read a lot as a kid and my understanding ov english is excellent and my spelling 99.9%, however the actual 'rules' i don't give a fuck about because they're so much bullshit.
i don't even bother capitalizing on 4chan anymore.
instead of teaching kids how to break down sentences shit and what past/present/future particples are, just give kids a fucking dictionary and a thesaurus. that covers 99% of useful language issues like, oh i don't know, actually conveying an idea from one person to another.
as for samshit, they might as well be General Motors, General Electric, and General Electronic.
>>52588440 Most likely something like this. What I am wondering is if they require carriers/regulators to push changes upstream into the new firmwares they want to release into the regions so if this is delayed you get devices that get updated in one region but not another.
>>52588400 their software update scene is a clusterfuck. The same model in different regions will get certain updates and skip others, it is also "normal" to have inconsistent designs/styles, such as in the settings menu.
>kobo is broken >considering buying a cheapo tablet to replace it >dad buys me a Galaxy Tab S2 for Christmas instead >fucking expensive e-reader but it's neat >stops working in under a month >have to send it in under warranty thanks Samshit.
Combination of good product, after-sales support and build quality. My positively ancient Note 2 is still alive and kicking well while my Nexus 5 is already dying. My next phone is going to be the S6 Edge+ that's for sure.
>>52586197 I like my s5 a lot. I've broken 2 ballistic glass screen protectors on it, 3 corners off of various cases and the frame of the phone has a dent in it. It still works like the day I got it. I also once accidentally threw an old Galaxy Prevail out of a moving car. It was still working when I quit using it. Try doing that shit with a Nexus or iPhuk. Also, I recently got a Samsung 850 evo ssd. 2521mbps seq read in rapid mode.
