Samsung and gone through some big changes over the years. from bottom to top.. but have they lost touch with the customers? a few years ago.. Samsung was the underdog in the mobile device market. HTC, Motorola, others were up.. and of course iphone. Now, HTC is way down. Samsung tried.. and had some bad press with their first android phones. slow updates.. quality issues GPS issues they were hungry and would do anything to get more market share. then things got good for Samsung. Galaxy series started to get better they fixed things that people were complaining about. timely updates gps quality and now they are.. the big dog of android phones. but look what they are doing now! Knox lockdown locked bootloader region locked more and more bloatware will this next bad move.. push the public to turn away from Samsung? on the Galaxy Note3.. the next update to Kit Kat.. they will lock out cases made by 3rd party manufactures that have S-view functions. these 3rd party cases will stop working with S-view. There is a fix, but your phone has to be rooted. and that voids your warranty! I am sure devs will find a way to work around this. but the point is.. we see what Samsung is doing. in my opinion.. what they are doing is worse than apple. and is this a hint of more controls coming? with future phones and updates? is Samsung getting to big? and just want to force more $$ out of us? well.. now HTC is very hungry!! what will they do.. to help upset customers find a new phone? then there is Motorala and LG, both are making big moves. if Sammy don't get their heads out of their behinds... they may find themselves back at the bottom!
