I'm absolutely sure - this lays at Samsung and not Google.

Google is only responsible for Android and only for Nexus devices at this level.

Samsung phones run TouchWiz, an Android variation based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).

Anything hardware-specific to a given device comes from the device manufacturer - device drivers, the kernel, and the bootloader - along with security and update policies.

Your gripe is with Samsung.
