    It is not “illegal” to turn off the shutter-sound in the United States, as the article mentions. I don’t even think its illegal in Japan either. This phone is made and designed in South Korea, so I think you are thinking about South Korea.

    In fact, many Japanese cameras have no shutter sounds (Canon, Nikon, etc), or which can easily be turned off in normal settings. As for Korea, I don’t know why they are pushing their stupid sound setting on everyone else. Its not like everyone in the world wears skirts or rides a bus with schoolgirls. So its very ignorant of Samsung to keep pushing this issue.

    Obviously, its very important to have no shutter sound when in restaurants or museums or at certain events, etc, or as to not surprise people in a quiet area.
