    According to Samsung's latest ad putting a heart beat monitor in a phone is the next big thing for cell phones. I almost died laughing.
    That wouldn't necessarily be a useless feature. It could be useful for people who are walking or jogging and want to hit their target heart rate for their workouts.

    I noticed their is lot of health centric stuff with Samsung lately. Gear Fit and Samsungs S-Health app attest to that along with the heart rate monitor. If someone loves to workout, the first phone I would show them is a S5.

    The Ativ SE has the features the S4 had, like the IR and TV stuff? I didn't know, as I don't know a whole lot about Samsung WPs, as Nokia is usually the main OEM.

    Oh my gosh lawl! The title of this thread just made my day! I think they are definitely screwed as far as phones go, but I think I saw a news article ( cant remember what site though) a few weeks ago saying they might enter the PC market with windows 8. Maybe they have a new chance there?
    They don't have the money for a PC. They can even do phones right now.

    Well it did. Now it doesn't since MS is making WP free for OEMs
    Windows Phone being free doesn't really change anything. R&D still exists so Microsoft is indeed investing in it. Now that it's free, their losses will only increase, if anything.

    There's one thing I noticed about the attitude of the BlackBerry people, so to speak.
    It...closely mirrors the sentiment of Symbian fans in recent times. Like it or not, they've found themselves stuck in the same boat.

    They find themselves ridiculed for using an OS that they like (Come on, it's not like this hasn't happened to us.). They have this stubborn hope that their OS (and brand) of choice will weather the storm. They are looking for things that they can still be proud about.

    I understand them very well. I'm still looking for an 808 to keep for myself, simply to satisfy the Symbian fan in me. (I also have this strange hope that if Nokia comes back to producing phones in 2016, they'll go to Symbian and use the Swipe UI. Hey, a man can dream ;)

    That's cool, but I still prefer Nokia's support on WP over Samsung. This is why we have options. :)

    This is a person who I agree with. They can't take criticism. So if I say "BB10 is hard to use" They all rally together and call the person stupid for not knowing how to use the phone. Crackberry people are weird sometimes
    crack does that to you lmao.
    Seriously though, I don't know when the last time I've actually seen a blackberry in person. Its been a few years at least. I've never seen a blackberry in person.

    But you can't generalize the crackberry fans. Every os fan tends to be like that. Say that android is laggy and you get immediately ridiculed for not using nexus

    Complain about the iPhone and they are ready to jump on you ha

    People here on wpcentral get up in arms over the fact you are critical of Samsung phones. Its expected really.

    For years now you could buy a watch with a heart rate monitor, not really ground breaking for me.

    That's true, but convergence means that separate devices aren't needed. It's like the smartphone replacing the MP3 player and the standalone GPS.

    True, it's just the latest cell phone fad anyway. All the manufacturers are doing it. Next year it will be 3D screens and cameras. That old chestnut.
