@joseph Yup. Not only are they constantly watching you, but you have to pay a subscription fee too. It feels like no one even sells software anymore. It's either open source, or you subscribe to it monthly.
@murtezayesil @mobian @mike @joseph I don't understand why they had advertising in the first place. That's ridiculous Samsung. You're supposes to be a premium brand 🤦♂️. It's stupid moves like this that push people to iPhone (which is far worse than Android because not only do Apple gather the same data as Google, they also lock users in, which is way worse.)
"Selling hardware is not the only way you can squeeze money" corporations realized. Xiaomi was first to do this. Their Redmi and Mi sub-branded mobile phones have 5% profit margin to account for unexpected expenses. They are selling those phones almost at a loss. Their income is almost entirely from in-app ads. After giving a good impression with good performance and low cost people kept going back to Xiaomi. It passed Samsung in marketshare.
