In fact I like pretty much Samsung. They keep giving us what we ask for, SD cards, user replaceable batteries, open bootloaders (!) and many more. Sony didn't, HTC didn't, LG didn't, so let's be fair! Google put a great pressure on manufacturers and Samsung resisted pretty well!
I don't quite like that Knox is installed by default on some devices, but well, nobody's perfect. I suggest them to make Knox an optional feature as it is pretty intrusive and annoying for the normal user. It's good to offer something but it's ugly to push it down our throats.
I have had myself some rants against Samsung, but all I wanted was to be constructive.

django, 02 Jun 2014you are out of touch with the current state of Tizen. Yizen , s... moreHehehehe! I may be as I'm not in any way working for or related to the Tizen OS project. SK Telecom and Orange still members of Tizen Association. Sprint left but rejoined as a partner. These companies are carriers and they drop in and out as they please and they aren't that important to the Tizen OS developement. But if Samsung doesn't release something soon, more important members could leave the Association.

LiMo(Samsung,Motorola) wasn't dropped, it evolved into Tizen with Meego(Nokia,Intel). Samsung merged(well only some components. the rest was phased out.) their Bada OS into Tizen also. Motorola chose Android OS(so did Samsung) for their phones but was still an associate member of the LiMo Foundation.

Looks like you don't know anything about Tizen OS if you think Tizen is a revamped Bada. :)

It seems to me that you "hate" Samsung for whatever reason, which you're entitled too and therefore wants Tizen to fail. I couldn't care less about Samsung or any other OEM, but I do want Tizen OS to succeed.

I read a lot of negative comments about Samsung's move. Personally I see it as positive. Not necessarily that i'd like that Samsung abandon the Android road, but anyway, to see them split the production between the two. I'm sick and tired of Google, because of the NSA rumours, because their hate for SD cards and removable batteries, because their obsessive presure to use the cloud services, even if this means to criple our devices and put us out of their control.
For now I have no realistic options, but as soon as another manufacturer comes with something at least half decent, I will quit the Google boat. I use the smarthone for realy simple tasks, I don't need hundred of apps, so Tizen could be it! Kudos!

What I really wish Samsung would do is combine all their major phone lines together.

Combine the Note, the S""if needed cause the Note kind of gets that"", the Beam, and the Zoom.
That device would be the absolute beast of device.

DD, 02 Jun 2014very true bro. at least someone noticed this. but lg g3 is good ... moreYes. G3 definitely is changing of the Galaxy bandwagon.
Although what sets the UI apart more I think is Samsung's own revamp to it.
