    I love these Google vs. Microsoft threads, I'm talking pure laugh riot. I read about Larry Page, Eric Schmidt and all the other mouthpieces and it makes me laugh. At the end of the day, it's the shareholders who ultimately decide which direction a company goes in. They don't care one whit about users and how passionate they are. The almighty Dollar Bill rules.

    omg dude we have terrible service from samsung here like i said before,its pointless to buy it, get issues most of the time and not get service/refund
    I totally agree with you, Samsung is a terrible company all around. I can tell you from my own personal experiences and being a member of the galaxy forum, many, many issues with a lot of their products.

    It still would be considered anecdotal. They sell millions of devices, unless they have a collective claim or file put against them, everything you experienced and the people around you experienced is anecdotal and isolated experiences.

    Even personally this it the first time I have ever heard of Samsung device failing.

    not really, alot of people keep reporting problems with samsung
    you should check out youtube, tonnes of videos of burnt samsung devices and especially capacitor issues
    i really dont believe you can possibly not have someone in your real life , who doesnt complain about samsung
    almost everyone has bought atleast one of their products and its guaranteed to fail in some way or the other if its a TV(capacitors) or a phone(battery or charging port burns)

    Never met anyone with failed Samsung devices. I also see people satisfied with their Samsung phones.

    Actually both companies MS and Google are unprofessional.

    One is busy in bad mouthing other company (eg. Scroogled campaign)
    and another one is ignoring another one.
    Atleast MS doesn't ignore platforms, it even made online office compatible with a ******* chromebook

    By not providing services google is losing their customers. Having no alternatives in windows phone, WP owners do tend to leave google services and accept other alternatives available cross platform. Like I did, changed to Microsoft services.

    Well Microsoft has no choice as they have to be as cross platform as possible to get people to use their services. Google can ignore WP because they have a much smaller user base to Android.

    You live a very sheltered life then...

    Personally...I know a dozen people who have had to have their new G5's replaced and everyone I know that has a G4 has battery heating issues...some have had major dead pixels and others bad sim slots,USB ports creaking cases,bad earphone jacks...

    Yes....I know a bunch of folks who have these phones..and have helped many of them unlock the boot loaders,root and run custom roms..it's something I've done in the past..

    Like I said before..i was told they have vendor problems..but...to not acknowledge that they really do have some serious issues is not being realistic, especially if you enjoy defending them all the time...

    These issues are well known and very documented,heck..even Verizon has publicly stated they will replace phones with the camera issue on the G5's..

    You should get out more,or at least try doing a little reading without your rose-colored glasses about this.......sheese....

    Yes, because I'm sure they'll fail as a company is they don't provide Office to less than half a percent of the PC market.

    I find that almost impossible to believe. I live in a town with about 10,000 people and even I've seen a phone from every OEM fail. Hell, in my family, there were two S4's that were replaced with iPhone 5Ss. My supervisor's Note 3 is also acting terrible. Now, you could argue that that's because Samsung sells more phones, so I would see more phone failures, but I've seen Apple, LG, Motorola, and even Nokia phones all fail.

    by 'some people', you mean about 1 percent of all people creating for youtube. You have to get a LOT of views before you get that much.
    Yeah, and for 80% it's a nice supplemental income.

    How are they obnoxious? Or are you just want to pick something apart that is Google?

    This place, sadly, is becoming as bad as MacRumors lately. If you like Microsoft, apparently you must hate Google.

    Does the google PR department ever take breaks from posting here? :/


    Nobody ever said that.
    You caught me. I rag on Chrome, point out that Google isn't going by standards, I've even ragged on Android. But since I don't always hate everything they do, I must be from their PR department. :\

    I am Pro Bacon if anything. I should have made bacon instead of sausages this morning but back on topic. As a matter of fact because I live in Atlanta, there are more iPhones and MetroPCS LG devices than anything else. If I ever see someone with a Samsung device they never say they have problems, but usually that type of stuff does not come up in normal everyday conversation with regular people.

    That was I was thinking, I actually use services from both, hell I was just on Xbox Live getting hacked by somebody on Watch Dogs.

    Not anytime soon no. I think it was just a good PR formality "I helped out Google but they won't help me out". I mean Chromebooks can already access Office Online from the website but I guess they were being nice. Even then it's on the Chrome store which means any device with Google Chrome can use it.

    It's not easy to completely avoid using Google services. Because of the sheer number of users, they have some stuff nobody else really has, like Google Talk - or whatever they call it these days. I still can't wrap my head around the Chromebook, I find it useless since a good Android tablet can do more and is more portable. I don't care for Google's business practices but it doesn't make me go out spew hateful things about them on an internet board. I use MS services because I prefer how they work, I've been using them for as long as I can remember and they are the industry standard in my profession. At least Apple plays somewhat nice with MS and it's probably why they're the top dogs in sales.

    Does any of this make me a member of Microsoft's PR team?

    I disagree. I actually have a single core device and it was terrible. Any recent Samsung device could speed past that thing.

    If you don't mind me asking, what, then was the point of even stating your "I've never met anyone with a bad Samsung product" post? If you said earlier that anecdotal evidence means nothing (in response to the guy saying that all of his Samsung products have broken), then what was the point of even providing anecdotal evidence?

    I was just saying personally I have never met anyone that had a bad Samsung product. It does not mean nothing. I never said bad products didn't exist, but in my own experience I never have. But you are right it is anecdotal. Unless we get hard facts around here it all is anecdotal.
