PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Google is growing increasingly concerned with Samsung's dominance of the Android - and smartphone - landscape. Supposedly, the topic is being openly discussed at Google, and as far as I'm concerned, that's great news.

I bought a Galaxy S two years ago and I'm never buying a Samsung Phone ever again. The updates were horrible, and Samsung can't be bothered to update past 2.3.6. They even said that the device wasn't able to run anything newer. Well I'm running 4.2.1 on it now.

As for the hardware - the GPS barely works (also a problem on a friend's Galaxy S), the camera's external protection is easily scratched by simply putting and taking the phone out of the pocket, resulting in blurry photos (I had to buy a replacement from eBay).

And don't get me started on Touchwiz which is a total Apple ripoff. The past two years were a constant struggle to make my Android as vanilla as possible (thanks Cyanogenmod).

So, in my experience, Samsung does mediocre hardware, horrible software and doesn't care about its customers.
