Samsung Has Come a Long Way

review

Samsung Electronics has officially stopped delivering its troubled Note 7 cell phone after repeated issues with the phones catching fire, including one occurrence in which a smoldering phone necessitated the evacuation of a Southwest Airlines jet.

The organization at first recalled the Note 7 in September, offering other Samsung devices as loaners until a "substitution" model arrived. Tragically, those too began to burn, and following several days of bad press, Samsung recommended that users shut down their phones and trade them for another device. Today, what many had anticipated happened: Samsung halted all production and marketing of the Note 7.

The Galaxy Note 7 was considered as one of the top Android cell phones and, with a DxO Mobile score of 88, has one of the best cameras, too.

With the Note 7 now removed from the market, numerous owners are pondering what to replace it with. (The Google Pixel, LG V20 and, yes, the iPhone 7 Plus are the phones for the most part mentioned in online discussions.)


Samsung, the electronics giant from Korea has come a long way. They have been quietly making smartphones for over a decade, partnering with Palm and then Windows Phone, and then with its very own Java-based smartphone OS prior to creating a big hit with its first plethora of Galaxy S smartphones.

Although, it was the Samsumg Galaxy S II, that led to a major break through for Samsung in the United States. The Samsung Galaxy S II phone was announced using the Galaxy S name on three of four of the major wireless cell carriers, which allowed Samsung to begin a powerful marketing campaign around the S phone. As soon as the Samsung Galaxy S III was announced as being the "anti-iPhone," obtainable using the same S III name on every cell carrier, Samsung's place ias a major mobile player was confirmed.

Unlike its nearest competitor Apple, Samsung continues to sell a wide variety of smartphones in an assortment of sizes, shapes and operating systems. Together with Android, Samsung continues to keep its hand in the Microsoft Windows Phone market with recent announcements such as the Samsung Ativ Odyssey running on Verizon Wireless, meanwhile developing its very own smartphone OS, called Tizen.

Looking back through the Samsung's smartphone history, we can now see the beginning of the Galaxy success way back in 2008, when Samsung started dabbling with the idea of full-touch branded, smartphone interfaces using the first Instinct and Omnia.

However, those phones were suppressed by their inherent operating systems. The Instinct made use of a custom, pieced-together Java OS which didn't deliver the extensibility and responsiveness we have come expect from a newer smartphone. The Omnia made an attempt to position touch-friendly widgets atop Windows Mobile, a very old OS created for a time when everyone employed a stylus on their smartphone.
