    i buy alot of gadgets etc for my home and businesses
    so yeah all companies have their flaws but samsung has wayy too many issues
    proof in links??

    just because you havent owned it or experienced problems doesnt mean it doesnt have
    even nokia , apple etc sometimes have such issues but samsung always has issues
    every home ive been to with a samsung tv (frequently) or other devices(sometimes) has the issues with capacitors etc
    i had a samsung laptop which brocked when i tried to reinstall windows like complete brick and turns out its a common issue, fought and got a refund to buy the dell inspiron turbo
    i had a samsung fridge die out on me within a year, finally i bought a hitachi and gave the samsung away
    galaxy note 2 battery gave way in less than 6 months and they refused to help me touting that i might have been charging at night(which is what everyone usually does)
    so yeah im not against samsung and actually like their windows phones but their lack of proper service etc in my country is a no-no

    theres a reason micromax, onida , karbonn , moto , sony and nokia have become so popular in my country these days
    though nokia sales have reduced because the asha series are a joke and people are reluctant to buy a lumia after being burned by asha
    -completely samsung free since 2013 and loving it

    That's the rub they don't have service in your country. Why don't you say that instead of saying a blanket statement they always fail when they don't.

    because they DO fail, i have owned an entire samsung ecosystem in the past but went back to sony for tvs, hitachi for fridges,yamaha and bose for audio, nexus 7 for small tab, ipad for big tab, lumia and nexus 5 as my daily phones, dell,hp,vaio for laptops, mac pro for desktop etc etc (so im not inclined to one company but samsung is now always on my blacklist of companies after so many bad experiences)
    i own more devices in each category but samsung has lost out in every segment ,it cant be a coincidence that me and numerous others have issues with ALL the samsung products which they own and then battle it out to get it sorted etc

    yes there is a service issue with samsung but the MAIN question is why does every samsung product have soo many issues and why do they refuse to accept them and rectify?
    even apple and other brands may have issues but their failure rate is much lower and they are very prompt in servicing etc

    you are confused abt my previous post, in short my point is why do soo many of their products fail or have some issue or the other in the first place

    edit-ps you are deviating from ops question,its a totally different story and i hope you havent assumed my anger towards samsung or other tech companies etc is not directed towards you,i respect your opinions and i dont want you to feel offended incase you are :))

    If you have issues that's one thing but these are not widespread issues. Like if I say my HP laptop stopped booting up and then I say HP makes crappy computers when I know that my case is an isolated incident.

    You are correct. But just imagine that you hated HP for some reason; you would certainly say that all HP computers are crap because you had one bad one.

    I don't have the energy to hate a company. I don't hate any company. If someone hates a company because of one bad product they are just stupid.

    3: google did ruin youtube. I can't even listen to a 2 hour podcast anymore. I click play, go sit on the couch. Next thing I know there's an ad playing, 2 minutes later the same ad is still on. I walk over to my pc and it's a 10 minute ad! And that was just the first scheduled break, there were about 6 more after that. If this is a company you love, good for you. But it's not for me!

    1.)I have had two HP laptops and loved both.

    2.)Google main mission is to continue to be the #1 search engine and to make money with that with ads.

    3.)Adblock. Problem solved.

    I think what Google is doing makes sense. Not that I find it a good situation for WP users...

    Google doesn't want to support MS's new-ish platform that is directly competing with one of their main products. It mainly just supports Apple because the audience is already massive and established. By not supporting them they'd actively lose users. With WP it merely becomes an annoyance to the users of the WP platform, making them want to switch phones.

    hmm very diff from my way.i usually keep my things for very long till they become ancient lol.used my old N70 for 4-5years ;) .changed it when usb port and camera cover got damaged and SD card slot got corrupted somehow.my dell laptop is reaching its 4rth year.thinking about getting a mac now.
    I usually keep 2devices .a laptop and a mobile one (ipad before. 1520now).
    Might get a cheaper smart phone as 1520 sometimes becomes too big to be used as a phone all the time.

    In this you are mistaken about just how widespread a problem Samsung has.

    They have had QC issues in several of their plants on various products,not just mobile phones. They also have had some major CS issues as well,and it has been noted on several boards not just mobile forums.......

    Samsung's mobile division on the Galaxy line has always been a hit & miss proposition for QC as long as I have used them. Folks were told over on XDA to compare different phones at the brick and mortar stores before walking out with one starting with the Captivate for this very reason.

    I remember doin this with mine and my wife's 1st Captivate....I had them open 7 different boxes and all had the screen discoloration issues or bad button issues before finding 2 that didn't...They weren't pleased to do this,but my ATT store had a email from corporate letting them know about it.

    Every Galaxy through the 4 and both of the Notes 1&2 had issues and I checked each the same way prior to my purchase. I'm glad I found out about doing this,cause it has saved me a lot of headaches and is why I won't buy anything sight unseen

    Funny thing...my 1520and my wife's 1020 are the first Nokia smart phone we have ever owned and both were perfect. I checked 3 each and all were solid.

    I looked at 2 G.Note 3's the same day....both had case fit creaks and dead pixels..

    From what I have been told by a acquaintance who is on the Galaxy team,it's a vendor issues they are working on to correct...I hope they get it sorted out but with as many of them that they make,there is always going to be more that have issues...just the sheer volume of production I think.

    Search is their bread and butter. I don't think it's just a "means to an end". Search is how they make most of all of their money.

    Probably. They are bound to have some issues if they are producing millions of the same model.

    You have bad luck. One person having bad problems with one companies products is just bad luck. Until 100-1000s of people have the same problems, they are just isolated incidents.

    But that's why there are warranties, you can get things fixed if they have problems.

    It can happen with any device. I recall reading a thread over on iMore awhile ago where an iPhone user said he was on his 28th. Yes, that's correct. I can't believe he kept going back for the same one! I believe it was a 4s, but I don't remember for sure. A lot of 920s were returned for dust under the camera lens (mine has it but it's my 2nd device and I don't use the FFC) or endless spinning gears. Considering that some of Samsung's high end phones themselves outsell all WP devices put together, it's not surprising that there will be a number of defects.

    Plus, add an inherent dislike for a certain brand, and any minor defect will seem major.
