Are you saying Samsung doesn't make the best wannabe iPhone? :-)

I used to like Samsung's products. After the S5, not so much. But I wasn't a fan of Samsung they way I was a huge Apple fan back in the day. However, Apple today is a very different company than the great company I remember. I've found a phone I like really well. I hope you do also. I don't expect that I will ever view Apple they way I once did. (And I never viewed Samsung the same way that I did the classic Apple.)

You may mean that they can get away with any crime. Probably true.

But don't say bad things can't happen to them. The people in charge can make mistakes that have a significant impact on the country. Examples: banksters too big to fail. Detroit rust belt bankruptcies and bailouts. Wall Street nearly wrecking the global economy.

It is premature to suggest that nothing bad can happen to Samsung no matter what they do. After the excellent Galaxy S5, they afflicted us with the Galaxy S6, and then with the very hot Galaxy Note 7. I think the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco affected them significantly. The managers in charge of that need to be taken out back and promoted and given bonuses.

I find it astonishing that the Galaxy S5 had removable battery, could accept an SD card, AND WAS FREAKIN' WATERPROOF. At least extremely water resistant. Oh, and had a headphone jack.

Then what did Samsung do in the Galaxy S6? Not waterproof. No SD card. And non-replacable battery. Why? (And Samsung stated as much . . .) to be more like an iPhone. More metal and glass. (freakin idiots)

Newsflash: if I wanted an iPhone, I would have bought an iPhone. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

In the end, it was the bloatware that made me move away from Samsung. Now I like my Nexus 6P, unlocked, with no bloatware and plenty of storage. All paid for up front. And it's got a screen as big as a Galaxy Note. (Is that a Nexus 6P in your pocket, or are you just excited to see me?)
