Comment Re:Samsung image tarnished with Android (Score 1) 107

I own and use a (Sprint) Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch, and it was a series of broken promises on ever getting ICS.

Ever tried another Android device like Motorola, HTC, Sony, Acer, Asus, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Toshiba, or ViewSonic? All of them add their own crap to Android to differentiate themselves instead of focusing on the hardware and updates. They all promise to do updates and then never deliver. It would be much easier if they did not spend all their time developing things to replace core features of Android (Samsung and their crappy SMS replacement with custom Applesque "notifications"). The fact that you can root it and "do what you want" is the best part of an Android device.

Before this, their name wasn't an issue. Now, maybe I consider some other brand.

There was an option to choose Samsung before this "incident"?
