With the Note 7 gone, we look back at Samsung’s cheers and jeers
The Note 7 is gone for now. After it was killed by battery explosion twice. So let’s look back and Samsung’s biggest cheers and jeers.
Jeer: Verizon Note 3 Carrier Branding
The way Verizon calls out their phones is by removing features, installing bloat, and sticking their cute little logo EVERYWHERE. The Note 3’s home button is wearing your shirt on your eyeballs, it makes no sense! Later Verizon changed the position to the back of the phone, but no one will ever forget.
Cheer: Galaxy Nexus
The Galaxy Nexus represented a change in android to me. Gone were the back lit keys of the also Samsung made Nexus S, and in were the on screen key days of the Nexus 4, 5, 6, 6p, 5x, and Pixel, not to mention tablets like the 7,9, and 10. It ran ICS 4.0, and set the bar for all android phones from then on. While some were unimpressed with it battery life, it was from a time were android was both crazy innovative and crazy new.
Jeer- Touchwiz Bloat
Wow Samsung. I miss the galaxy Nexus. A stock phone. Just look at the photos above.
Cheer: Galaxy S6 Fingerprint Scanner
After the S5 scanner deabacle, samsung revamped their scanner. The end.
But give your galaxy note 7 up or this will happen-
