For the most part, I only own Nexus devices. I've owned 3 of them and am on the verge of buying the new LTE Nexus 7 to make it my fourth. This wouldn't be the first device ever that came unlocked and was later locked. Samsung has begun to make a push to be seen as a corporate option and that requires tight security. That's why software like Knox is on the device.
