I jumped ships today, and bought a Samsung gallaxy s11, I have had it 40 minutes and I hate it, so go on Brian go on Jamie let me have it. It was a total waste of $798 bucks, maybe I can pay the credit card off before the wife sees it :(

You asked "Am I going to hell?"

Given your comments, I very much suspect the answer is -

"No, you are already there". :mosking:

The thing is just AWFUL... it comes with gingerbread snap operating system or something like that, me thinks it should have been called Ginger bread Crap.

The damn message alert is so week it sounds like a mouse farting, and you can't even set it to beep every minute or so, until you answer it. like the iPhone does :(

And I have nearly worn my finger down to the bone, trying to swipe to delete messages, you have to physically go into the message section, scroll down, find an arcane delete system, with a trash can that looks like system 7.53 and press delete and the confirm it etc etc etc.

If this is what hell is like, don't look for me next sunday, I will be at church trying to save whats left of my integrity and soul :D

Gee! what made you buy it in the first place? Was it the ad that Samsung had tying to fob off Apple? Did you succombe to the temptation? Then, you should really go to church on Sunday and redeem yourself... But first think of your credit card! Sell it and come back to the fold. It seems people are trying to get rid of you....



By the way what colour did Steve Jobs had in mind when he did the logo? Was it a granny smith , a Gala, or a red delicious? I really would like to know?

Pegi, they are always trying to get of me, but sadly for them, they don't understand part of my DNA, is cockroach, and I can survive a nuclear blast, and still come back smiling :D

I can't believe you bought that piece of crap.. Pardon the French.

You're a traitor Ken... Bow your head in shame.

You could have played with it before buying it and then you would have known straight away that it's nothing compared to an iPhone.

Firstly the build quality feels cheap... And Android sux... It's unintuitive and confusing.

It makes you appreciate Apple and the genius of their products.... They are built well and the OS is so intuitive and a pleasure to use... It's as simple as that.

I once wrote a while ago that Apple could learn a thing or two from Android, but my opinion has changed.... I'm eating my words now.

Even the Galaxy Tab feels cheap to hold compared to an iPad.

What possessed you Ken??? Get rid of it on eBay!!!

I tell you what Alex, i am glad it wasn't a windows phone, Grace would have hired a mini bus, and picked you all up, before fronting at my day with pitch forks and boiling oil... :toxic-sign:

Actually, I would have preferred if you had bought a windows phone.. To me it's not as bad as Android.

Android/ Samsung et al.. Are out to get Apple... Microsoft aren't.

And I can't believe you bought a Samsung Galaxy 2.

To me, Microsoft make crappy software. (Although I do like Outlook..ouch)

So to me there is no competition between Apple and Microsoft anymore... Apple are streets ahead.
