This article will talk about whether or not Samsung is an evil company that uses underhanded methods to dominate the smartphone market, or if their phones are of high quality and they make solid software that people enjoy using.
A lot of people blame Samsung for copying other companies’ features and technology, but this article will argue why that isn’t necessarily true. In fact, we will show you how much credit Samsung really deserves for creating some of today’s most popular feature-packed smartphones!
This article will also discuss why it is important to differentiate between what makes someone successful and what doesn’t. It may sound weird, but there are very few things in life that aren’t influenced by something else.
So now let us begin our lesson by talking about one of the biggest similarities between Samsung and Google.
Definition of the word “Samsung”
Let’s take a look at how we can define what makes an organization or product “Samsung-like.” The first step in defining this is to understand the definition of the term “Samsung.”
In our tech ecosystem, you will often come across the term “Samsung” when talking about their mobile phones, TVs, computer software, and more. This term actually has several definitions depending on the area it appears in!
When referring to their smartphones and tablets, many people use the word “Android” to describe them. But what does that really mean for you as an individual?
It means that Samsung made a smartphone that uses Google’s mobile operating system (OS) technology. That OS technology was originally called “Google Mobile OS.” Now it is known as simply “Android.
Google and Samsung are two different companies
As we have seen, there is no hard and fast rule that says you need to use Google services for Android. You can still install and use various apps and features through the Galaxy Store or via third-party app stores.
However, this article will talk about how much of an impact the loss of access to the Google Play store has on your smartphone experience.
First off, let’s look at why having easy access to the Google Play store is so important. The Google Play website contains all sorts of software, games, and applications (apps) for mobile devices like the iPhone, iPad, andAndroid phones and tablets.
It also includes some features such as YouTube videos and music streaming. This way you don’t have to go searching around for what apps contain what functions; everything is already preloaded into one place.
Not only does it make things easier to find and download something, but it removes the risk of grabbing a bad app accidentally. Since everything is online, people can view reviews and ratings before downloading anything too.
Samsung and Google are the same thing
The way people perceive technology is influenced heavily by the media they are exposed to. People who live in an Apple-focused environment will likely only know about and understand iPhones, for example.
Similarly, people with an online shopping habit may only know about and use certain brands, depending on how well known they are.
So, what are we talking about here? We’re talking about two of the most prominent names in tech — Samsung and Google!
Both companies have become so popular that just like any other brand, their name has become synonymous with them. When someone says “Samsung phone” or “Google search,” you automatically assume they mean nothing unless told otherwise.
This can be a good or bad thing, however.
By putting those brands next to each other, it creates confusion as to which one people think of when speaking of the both. This can make it hard for your audience to relate to you if they don’t recognize the term you’re using.
There are similarities between Samsung and Google
The term “Android” is not owned by Google or Samsung, it was coined in 2010 when Andy Rubin (then head of mobile at Google) gave his inaugural address as CEO of what would later be known as Android.
Rubin mentioned the platform twice during this speech, once to describe it as an open source software system and again to mention that he wanted to include more than just apps on the phone, but also media, games, and other features.
This second part didn’t quite come to fruition until several years later when phones such as the Nexus line were able to run various third-party applications and content through the use of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).
Since then, there have been over 200 different versions of Android released, including special editions like Amazon’s Alexa Edition and Facebook’s Social Media Edition. A total of 19 smartphone manufacturers now offer their own take on the operating system.
There are differences between Samsung and Google
As we have seen, there is no formal partnership or collaboration between Samsung and Google at the product level. What you will not find are instances of Samsung creating versions of Gmail or YouTube for use on their devices nor will you see an app like Photos that integrates with both Apple’s iCloud and Google’s cloud storage systems.
There are some cases where you will see references to each company’s services in apps but these tend to be superficial integrations such as adding “Gmail” under an account type or having logos next to options on Settings screens.
By and large, however, Samsung does not actively develop its own software. It outsources this work to third-party developers who then integrate the software into the platform they are working on – whether it’t heir own project or someone else’s.
Samsung and Google are similar in many ways
As we have seen, there is no clear definition of what it means to be an “Android user.” This makes it hard to tell if someone is really using the software or not!
This article will talk about some similarities between Samsung’s mobile operating system and the open source Android platform.
You’ll learn how much control Samsung gets over the software that runs on their phones, as well as how they develop this software.
There are also some parallels drawn between the way Samsung manages users’ trust and the way that Android does too.
Samsung and Google are different in many ways
First, you need to recognize that Samsung and Google are not the same company. Sure, they’re both technology companies with an emphasis on software, but that doesn’t mean their products are the same thing!
As we’ve discussed before, Amazon is much more than just a book retailer; it’s also a media company that produces its own TV shows, movies, and gadgets.
Just like how McDonalds makes fast food, Amazon makes overpriced junk that people buy because it appeals to them.
So why should you care? Because Samsung is very similar to this giant tech corporation! They’re a big business that makes mostly expensive mobile phones with fancy features that appeal to certain audiences.
And although most of these devices run Android, that’s where the similarities end.
There are differences between Apple and Samsung
Between what products Apple has and how they market them, and what type of smartphone Google puts out, there is no real comparison. What company produces the best smartphones depends mostly on which brands of phones their competitors have.
Apple makes great gadgets that appeal to both tech enthusiasts and casual users. They make sure to feature cool technology and elegant designs that many people enjoy looking at.
Their flagship devices are always in high demand due to this reason. Technically advanced features such as large screens, powerful processors, and water resistant cases are some of the things people admire about an iPhone.
But aside from these specs, another important factor is brand loyalty. Many individuals still buy iPhones because they like the way it feels in their hands and believe that its manufacturer will not let go easily. This influence helps promote repeat purchases.
Google does not set hard standards for phone manufacturers when it comes to quality or design. Phones made by different companies all look similar, making it harder to pick one over the other.
This is why most people cannot tell the difference between an LG device, an HTC device, and even a OnePlus device beyond branding. People perceive those with white plastic covers as better than ones with black metal casings, but beyond that everything else is pretty much the same.
Not only do most people lack expertise in internal mobile hardware components, but they also do not research who manufactured each phone before buying one.
