This is not an Iphone vs Samsung vs Google thread. This is about things that Samsung and Google could do in order to really become a fierce Iphone competitor. If they did even half these things, I guarantee they would sell much more units. For me I had an s7 but I decided to get an Iphone because it doesn't have bloatware, it's fast, can have many apps running in the background with no problem, and doesn't have any lag issues, and gets updates as soon as they come out. Even if Samsung adds 100 cool new features that the Iphone doesn't have, sure I'd buy one and play with it, but I'd sell it after a while and get an Iphone because Samsung doesn't have the core principles that I want in a phone. These are the things Samsung and Android OS could improve on, and would make it a very fierce competitor to Apple if they did. I probably wouldn't even buy an Iphone anymore again if they did these things. 1. Remove bloatware. Seriously why do android phones come with so much bloatware preinstalled? And theres just no way to remove certain apps. With IOS 10, Apple made it so you can even delete stock apps. 2. Streamline Android OS. Make it more geared towards speed. Make use of the 4GB Ram. It should be able to multitask better than an Iphone that has only 2GB ram, not sure why an Iphone does this so much better even with only half the RAM. If Android takes up so much RAM just from the OS itself, then change the OS so it doesn't hog so much RAM. Get rid of the "lag" experience that most people who use a Samsung have already experienced and know how annoying it is. 3. Updates! Gets frustrating when you're stuck with an old version of an OS for months on end and you have no idea when you will be able to update. Then when the new update actually does come, there's already a new version of Android out by then! 4. Fingerprint sensor. This needs improvement. I find Apple's fingerprint sensor to be much much better. In the 6s it was hard to see notifications on the lock screen because the sensor was so good that as soon as you hit the home button it went straight to the home screen. 5. Bluetooth battery level indicator. I don't understand why on Android it won't show you the battery level of bluetooth devices through your phone like how it does on iOS. 6. Imessage Android version. It would be really cool if Google would add something similar to Imessage for Android devices. I like having the read receipts and typing notifications. 7. Stop making European versions better than US. I don't think its fair that the international version is faster and has longer battery life. Make US versions just as good as the international models. What else do you think they should improve? What would it take for you Iphone people to switch to Samsung or another Android device? Do you think some of these improvements aren't necessary? Have better suggestions?
