I have been very critical of BlackBerry, until I tried BB OS 10.2 before updating to 10.3 – it worked like a charm and rocks absolutely well. A lot of people believed I am too emotional, they claim it’s visible from my style of writing. However, that’s not the case, I have no emotional sympathy for any of these companies and I am not a rabid fanboy. When mobile vendors err, they should take responsibility for it, but we need people who can echo the frustration of the consumers. This way, mobile vendors know they need the voice of consumers in making a product and not forcing their products down the throat of consumers as Apple notoriously does.
Apple made a huge leap in business philosophy, however. They’d listened to their loyal fanbase who wanted a large screen display. It was hard, but Apple delivered. Not only giving them a big-screen iPhone 6 but a alternate larger iPhone 6 plus. The loyal fanbase, for the first time had a choice.
Samsung, on the flip side didn’t listen to her consumer base, that’s why Samsung Galaxy S5 was an embarrassing flop despite huge marketing campaigns. They have taken a new dimension with the Samsung Galaxy S6, I do not know if this is what their consumer base crave for, but they can be given the benefit of a doubt.
The engineering blunders of Samsung Galaxy S6 are already known. The positives to bear in mind, is that there are certain things the device does that the iPhone 6 can’t do. Perhaps, this could be enough traction to woo new fans as the device becomes commercially available next month.
What are the “other things” Samsung Galaxy S6 does?
Samsung Galaxy S6 does seamless payment at stores where credit-card reader is located with Samsung Pay.
