    Wait...



    I'm glad I read this lol. Because your tone here is vastly different than what you've stated in other threads lol. I thought you were prepared to give Apple all of your money regardless of the price for the top tier model with the most storage.
    Are you kidding? @Tartarus is a major Apple stock holder. He gets all the latest and greatest devices for free. :-)

    At this point in time when I spend $1K plus on a smartphone, it will only be from Apple. At least I know if I don't upgrade for at least 3 years it'll work just as good. I don't have that confidence in longevity when it comes to a Samsung or pretty much any device that runs Android.
    This isn't 2008 bro lol. Even your budget Samsung or LG can run a long time with no issues. I have had all the LG L series phones and currently have a K20 and it runs just like day one. And I'm not even a fan of Samsung anymore either I'm team LG but even I know that most of the negative points of Samsung are now moot like TouchWiz.

    I believe what she meant is the build quality on the lower priced devices are not up to long term use and updates are not available for long

    Well, last Friday my Samsung tv of 7 years old decided to go off and on again every 3 minutes. As I’m an avid tv watcher, I couldn’t stand this. So I went online and got me a 55” 4K HDR thingie.
    This also means that I won’t be getting a new iPhone this year

    In addition to above: This tv did the same a few months after I got it and the motherboard got replaced under warranty.
    Also, up until 2 months ago I used to have a Samsung refrigerator which decided to stop working. I replaced it with a Bosch.
    The new tv is an LG: https://www.lg.com/nl/televisies/lg-55UJ634V

    Yikes!!! I’ve never had any issues with any Samsung TV (knock on wood). I bought my mom an LG almost 10 years ago & it’s going strong. I don’t til you can go Wong with either.

    To be honest, I just opted for the cheapest tv out there.
    I didn’t even care for a smart tv or HDR or 4K for that matter.
    Both my TV 4th gen and computer are hooked up to it and all I do is watch movies and tv series.

    I don’t til you can go Wong with either.
    Who is Wong and why should I go to him?

    My most recent experience with Samsung :

    Since Apple didn’t release a new IPP last week, I decided to order a Galaxy Tab S4. BAD IDEA.

    my order contained the tablet, a memory card, a charging dock and the book cover.
    I got the memory card.
    Then I tried checking on the rest of my order.

    I followed Samsung’s directions and went to the website armed with my order number but when I entered it, I got “you have no orders”.
    So I tried calling them and got bounced from voicemail to voicemail.
    So here I am, 8 days after ordering, they took my money and I have no shipping info and no access to my Samsung account.

    I wound up contacting my bank for help.
    As soon as they began the process to retrieve my money, Samsung chimes in with “oh we got your money, the tablet is on back order and we have a TENTATIVE shipping date of September 30th.

    They really think their customers are idiots.

    I instructed my bank to go ahead and get my money back and refuse any and all transactions from Samsung in the future.

    Nothing has changed since they forced the update that bricked my Note 3 all these years ago.
    So consider me schooled: I will use smoke signals to communicate before I use another Samsung product, I cannot believe I was dumb enough to hope that anything would be different today.
