  1. I see they more or less ported TouchWiz. this could be a viable platform if they can sort out the Android compatibility layer issues and price it below Android devices with similar specs

  2. So after 2+ years of rumours they’ve finally released a device. Interesting. I hope for their sake it doesn’t become another Jolla or Firefox phone.

  3. Nice phone there Samsung. But is it entirely its own o. S, or those it somehow rely on Android
