PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Last week our HTC One vs Samsung Galaxy S4 head-to-head concluded that Samsung no longer makes the best Android phone. But after developments this week, I wonder whether Google wants Samsung to continue making Android phones at all." Yup.

Samsung?

Samsung hasn't removed anything for anyone; ITV has. Samsung doesn't make ITVplayer, Samsung has no controlling interest in ITV and it's really not Samsung's fault that ITV makes stupid business decisions.

Yeah, I lost interest in the article when they made it sound like Samsung make ITV make the app "incompatible" with "other versions" of Android. It's called an exclusivity agreement, it's not a technical limitation. Just like Microsoft got Pandora to remove ads only on Windows phones. Stuff like this happens all the time.

I really wonder if the point of the article is to stir up infighting. Just look at all the Samsung fans going after HTC phones in this thread.
