Scathing look at Samsung’s new Galaxy Round smartphone from Zach Epstein. First, his thoughts on Samsung’s Galaxy Gear stupidwatch:
The Galaxy Gear smartwatch is the worst product Samsung has made in a long time. The device was rushed to market in an attempt to beat Apple’s non-existent iWatch to consumers wrists — and it shows. It doesn’t innovate or even attempt to bring anything new and useful to the table, and what little functionality it does offer is anything but exciting.
It gets worse from there.
The Galaxy Round looks like a nice phone. Its specs include a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 32GB of storage, microSDXC support, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and, of course, the curved 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display. But the curved display doesn’t really serve a purpose… the curved display on the Galaxy Round is an absolutely, completely, totally, utterly useless gimmick.
It’s what Samsung does when they don’t have an Apple product to copy.
