Frankly, I have never ever been a Samsung Fan, especially when it comes to gadgets. The first time I bought a Samsung product was in 2009 and it was a Samsung Corby. After just six months of the purchase, the touch screen started behaving weirdly and I knew I was in for trouble. I gave up on that and moved on.
Just like the first Samsung product in 2009, I bought my first Apple product (iPhone4) early this year. I have been literally sleeping with this device for close to a year now, and I couldn’t have been happier with its performances and the magic it has added to my life.
After using an Apple product and hearing all the war-cry between Apple and Samsung on the proposed release of Samsung Galaxy Tab 750, I thought it would be one heck of a product with a brand-new experience. But, I was wrong!
I use Samsung’s Tab on a daily basis, and guess what – I live a life loads of regret and remorse, for buying a product that is ridiculously flawed to begin with.
What’s Wrong With Samsung Galaxy 750?
Operating System – They told me Honeycomb is their latest OS tailored for tablet PCs. Well, I can’t see no difference. What are improvements are you talking about? Honey, your Honeycomb is not even close to iOS back in 2007!
Copy and Paste – Before I bought this product, I read a TechCrunch article on how Honeycomb has added the Copy/Paste features. When I actually try to copy and paste, it takes a couple of seconds. Yes, going by the simplicity of the copy/paste function, a couple of seconds are a lot. That’s the truth. Compare this function with that of iPhone4 and you will know what I’m talking about. Copy/Paste is a basic function which is supposed to be a breeze, but sadly, it’s not the case for Honeycomb. By the time you copy and paste some text on Samsung Galaxy Tab 750, I guarantee, I could do the same ten more times using my iPhone4. Why doesn’t Android just give up and admit it can never get close to iOS?
Adobe Flash – In the advertisement, they bragged about their product having an edge over iPad2 in terms of playing Adobe Flash videos. But it’s been two months, and I wouldn’t know why the videos on my Facebook aren’t able to run. Every time I click on a video to watch it, it says “download the latest Flash Player” and takes me to the Android Market. As a matter of fact, I have already downloaded all the Flash Players invented under the Sun and they are upgraded to the hilt. I can’t but use swearwords to describe what Samsung Galaxy 750 is all about. But I definitely swear by iOS4 on my iPhone4.
High-Def Videos – Until 24 months ago, my eyes were okay with watching videos in standard definition. Everything changed when I entered the world of Full HD. Obviously, I expected everything in full HD quality. So when I bought Samsung Galaxy 750 Tab, I thought it would live up to its tall promises of playing videos in HD. Shockingly, the reality was different – the product can’t play HD Videos. One of my friends (supposedly a big Samsung Fan) told me there are apps on the Android Market that help play video of any format. He was wrong. There aren’t any app. Therefore, you can’t play full HD videos on a Samsung Galaxy 750 Tab.
MP3 Files – Guess what – my Samsung Galaxy 750 Tab can’t play all mp3 files. When I transfer my music folders from PC to Tab, sometimes they warn me that the Tab won’t be able to play them. I ignore the warning assuming the Tab would still play the files as it already plays some mp3 files I’ve downloaded from the Internet. So what’s the difference?
Speaking of being user-friendly, just wondering how close is Samsung Galaxy 750 to my iPhone4?
Android Market: I have never ever seen a market so disoriented and disorganized. It’s even worse than the fish market in my hometown. When you search for an app by its name, it doesn’t show up! And, worse, most of the apps are riddled with bugs that wouldn’t help you. I haven’t seen a single app that doesn’t have bad comments. You’re told that a modern gadget is as good as the apps that it supports. But sadly, it’s not the case for Samsung Galaxy 750 run on Honeycomb.
Why would you buy a product so fucked-up!
It cost me a whopping 36,200 rupees (or $724 for Samsung Galaxy Tab 750) to learn I will NEVER buy a Samsung product again. The only day I MIGHT think of using their products is when they’re fully acquired by Apple Inc.
Never buy a Samsung Product. Never – Ever – Never. Even if there was a fire!
Now I hope my friends (especially Samsung Fans) know why I regret buying the Samsung Galaxy 750 Tab.
It’s not the Time to Tab – It’s the time to go and get a life!
