Opinion: Samsung improves and Apple misleads



While purchasing a new smartphone other than its specs users also expect its maker to provide a regular and genuine update. Updates are very important for any smartphone as it keeps the privacy of the device up to date and providing them without bugs is a responsibility of the manufacturer.

Nowadays, Samsung is becoming more concerned about providing regular firmware updates for its Galaxy devices and the company has also changed its policies regarding the entire software updates program.

But its rival, Apple doesn’t seem to be any conscious on this matter.

Some of the older mistakes of Apple have been recently popped up when the US tech giant has been fined for misleading its customers. The company has to pay a sum of $113 million to settle the case filed in 33 US states and the District of Columbia. (reports Washington Post)

How Apple did this? Well, Apple deceptively slowed the older iPhones with the help of a software update. Following these updates, the iPhone begins to shutdown randomly or their battery begins to drain faster.

This whole case is also known as Batterygate or iPhone throttling. In December 2017, Apple admitted it had been throttling some devices after customers discovered that replacing the battery in an older iPhone boosted its speed, which appeared to be confirmed by top iPhone benchmark developer Geekbench.

These actions caused iPhone users to get troubled and buy new and expensive iPhones. Eventually, an investigation caught this and the U.S. tech giant is now been fined for this.

Apple has always been the best for delivering software updates to its devices even to the oldest ones. The company rolls out updates for all of its users at the same time and guarantees four years of regular major upgrades for the iPhones.

Meanwhile, there is no other company to do so. The Android phone makers release updates to their devices in patches and it takes time to reach all the eligible smartphones. Even its biggest rival, Samsung lagged behind to do so.

But just providing updates is not enough, providing them with full honesty without any mislead should be the concern of the phone manufacturer which Apple had failed. At the same time, Samsung seems to be more genuine and improving its efficiency as well as services.

Although the Korean firm doesn’t provide the updates as fast as Apple but it does it with full sincerity and clarity which matters more. The Korean giant has also changed its updates policy and from now all the flagship models will be getting the major upgrades for three years and the security updates will be rolled out for up to four consecutive years.

This new step from Samsung shows how much it is concerned about the after-sales service for its products. By caring for the devices after-sales, increase its life, make them reliable, and also becomes the value for money to its user. This helps the OEMs to gain customer’s trust which adds to the goodwill of any company.

Apple should learn something from Samsung on how to gain customer’s support aside from deceiving them. Such practices may affect companies reputation badly and being the world’s largest brand in terms of earning, Apple should not do such tiny mistakes to gain more customers.

Here’s why Samsung apps start getting One UI 6 support ahead of official release



Samsung Galaxy Themes new update

After One UI 5.1, we started hearing a lot of news, leaks, and rumors about the upcoming One UI 6. Recently, Samsung has also started releasing One UI 6.0 support for stock apps, starting with the Calculator app.

Looking at all this, we can expect that Samsung will provide this support to more apps in the future too. But the question is, why is Samsung providing One UI 6.0 support to its stocks apps before the official release? If you are thinking that by getting their support, you will get some new features in your apps, then it is not only the reason.

Samsung One UI 6.0 support can also bring new features for apps, but the main reason for this is something else. But what? The answer is that Samsung is going to release a new One UI update in the coming weeks or months and the company aims to make its stock apps compatible with that accordingly. Once the app is supported, the app will not stop working or get crash whenever the company releases that update for the smartphone.

Samsung One UI 6 Apps

A recent report revealed that Samsung’s stable Android 14 update will be available in October. This is the same time frame as last year’s UI rollout, with the latest Galaxy S lineup being the first to secure it. Meanwhile, beta activity is seeing an early start if everything goes as planned by the internals.

Still, for the time being, we can consider this information as a pinch of salt as the company has not yet announced any official timeline for One UI 6.0.

Instead of Camera, Samsung should bring battery upgrade to flagships



Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra

Nowadays, smartphones are being heavily used for gaming and photography. Accordingly, phone makers are focussing more and more on upgrading the imaging capabilities and performance of chipsets. So why not, Samsung should now bring battery upgrade to Galaxy flagships.

Battery upgrade should be the next aim

The recently launched Galaxy S23 Ultra brings a high-profile 200-megapixel camera, allowing users to capture lossless shots, even when cropped. With great collaboration between hardware and software, the new Samsung flagships offer peace of mind to consumers, when it comes to battery life.

In addition to camera lovers, people prefer buying a smartphone, which offers great battery life without compromising features and power specifications. In the same way, Samsung is reportedly working, and there’s still room for improvements in flagships battery life.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra could come with a new battery technology inspired by electronic vehicles. The company is considering stacked battery technology for smartphones, which will reduce the size keeping the same mAh and enhanced lifespan.

Since the stacked battery tech could leave more gap inside the phone, Samsung might not think about increasing mAh on flagship phones. Instead, the company may use an additional vacant area for upgrading other hardware elements and better placement.

The S23 Ultra even defeated the years-old leader iPhone in terms of battery performance, thanks to the “Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy” processor. Exynos 2400 is reportedly coming to the S24 series in certain markets, which re-creates concern about the phone’s battery life and performance.

That said, Samsung should focus on increasing premium Galaxy phones’ battery life so users can use them longer with a single charge. 45W fast charging is doing quite well, just improvements to battery life would prove as cherry on the cake.

Samsung 4+5 strategy meets today’s demands of consumers



Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus

Tech industry is currently facing a global downturn, forcing companies to shut down businesses in hopeless markets. Promotion no longer remains the only way to sell more smartphones as consumers start comparing products on different aspects; reliability, security and software support.

Samsung, unquestionably meets the demands of consumers, thanks to its 4+5 strategy, ensuring longer Android OS and security updates support. The company is the biggest Android seller in the world, and of course leads the market too, beating rivals like Apple.

Since the Samsung 4+5 strategy still lags behind Apple, when it comes to software support, it is record-breaking in the Android segment. As vendors stop including pre-built charging adapters to reduce e-waste, the EU also mandated longer software support so consumers can keep using a phone longer.

“At Samsung, you get not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 times Android OS updates. And 5 years is a long time, so your palm-sized pal will be in good hands with new regular security patches.”

Software updates play a key role in continuing great smartphone experiences, as well as the releases come with new features and optimization. Android is open source and gets packed with numerous flaws, Google patches them through security releases every month.

Accordingly, Samsung rolls out monthly patches to a large number of Galaxy devices, which ensures the most reliable system and user data protection. Android OS usually gets a new version in the second half of every year, bringing new useful features and life-saving tools to consumers.

Samsung, with its amazing One UI, dominated the Android market. The custom skin is neat, clean, and intuitive, ensuring smoother and more stunning experiences on Galaxy smartphones and tablets. Google introduces 1 each year, but Samsung utilizes it thrice (x.0/x.1/x.1.1), cool enough?

Until the second half of 2020, Samsung supplied two OS updates to all Galaxy devices. Later, the company raised the bar of software and reached up to 3, matching the Android maker. With the S22 launch, the Korean tech giant promised to bring up to 4 OS and 5 years of patches to select Galaxy models.
