My first and current Samsung product is their Samsung Galaxy S2, which I have been using for nearly 2 years. What I like about Samsung is that they constantly release new products, and they have so many varieties and models of phones on the market that there is sure to be something that suits you. I want to thank Samsung for how indestructible my S2 is, I have dropped it multiple times and yet all that has happened are scratches on my screen protector. However, according to complaints by my friends and relatives, the newer models of Samsung phones are not as durable and the screen cracks much more easily.
Another complaint that I have about Samsung is that they are too focused on consumer profit and not on consumer welfare. They take extremely long to release software updates and up to now, I am still stuck on Ice Cream Sandwich while the latest Android version is already Kit Kat. For a student like me, I also find their phones too expensive. I simply cannot afford to pay $500+ for a phone even with a contract!
Add to that the inability to sync my files along with my Macbook, I think that I will be switching to an iPhone come contract renewal. In conclusion, I didn't really have the best of experience with Samsung and I think they can learn from Apple in terms of efficiency in rolling out software updates for their consumers.
