I couldn't agree more. Samsung has always made good to great hardware products with horrible software support. Poorly functioning GPS is still an issue on many of the Galaxy S class phones. Also not a fan of iOS clone TouchWiz. Enough with the super smooth fingerprint magnet bar shapes too. Give it some shape and texture, and make it feel like squeezing it won't break it.
I'll give it to motorola there. They build many of thier phones like tanks. Plus moto has their radios down. GPS works like a charm and the three mic noise cancellation makes for one of the best call quality available on a cell phone.
But if Samsung can get thier act together for this latest release, I may seriously consider it. In any event, October can't get here soon enough.
I wonder, if this is a Verizon exclusive, then will they subsidize it, or just an outright purchase like other Nexus devices.
