Karma always catches up in the end.

samsung_are_rubbish

It’s been a long time coming but at last the originator of the now iconic touchscreen Apple iPhone is seeing its hard work justified in an easy to understand way.

I’m not talking about the billions owed by Samsung to Apple and proven in court for Samsung constantly ripping off Apple  iPhones (Samsung continue to evade that debt using the courts of appeals).

No this is much more karma based as we witness the iPhone copycats by made by Samsung explode and catch fire due to poor design and badly though out everything.

For those non Apple users who think there is fair competition between android phones and Apple they have to step back and remember that before Apples iPhone there wasn’t anything like a iPhone on the market and after iPhone everyone just ripped off everything Apple had worked hard to create including its look and feel.

Since then Apple has had to deal with companies like Samsung imitating their designs and new features and even advertising style in order to steal market share in the high end phone market by imitating the real thing (Apple).

But at last the clarity is starting to show as Samsung now with a sizeable marketshare in their copy cat iPhones feels the consequences of not designing but just copying.

People who buy Apple know that every single component in that phone or computer has been meticulously designed and tested to work under strict criteria and constant use. Nothing is left to chance and in order to get so much into such small devices everything has to be optimised precisely on every new version of the iPhone and every new version of Apples computers also.

Some people call this the walled garden as Apple control the hardware and the software and keep everything optimised to just work and they don’t allow just anyone to access this set up as that invites potential problems for all users.

Apple can not afford to just go to the local electronics fair and buy off the shelf components and build a phone because to do that would be like owning a PC.

What is a PC? (non Apple)

PC’s are built using off the shelf components and anyone can build one  they are a collection of bits and bobs purchased from any number of different suppliers all making their own thing and to build your PC you will pick from the myriad of suppliers doing different things and bulked all those bits together to make a PC. The problem is you will always have more options than needed, as the suppliers are adding all sorts of things you don’t need but someone else might need so your buying a bloated component and just using the bit you need from it.  You might have extra ports you wound not need, extra wiring in there, not for you but maybe another person needs it in their build.
This is how PC’s are put together. Components are multi usable to capture every conceivable buyer and made in bulk and sold cheep to capture a mass market. You buy the part and just use the bits that apply to your build but the rest is still all in there using powers and doing nothing and thats just one part you will buy loads of parts like this before you have a computer so a lot of waste. The potential for problems and issues is pretty much a hall mark of PC’s.

This is why PC’s are a pile of junk, because when you then add the software from another company (win dose) that software has to work with your specific build of PC which will be different to others build using different parts to get to the same end result and so you get crashing and freezing and all the other bad stuff Apple users don’t get (viruses trojans).

I’m not saying that if you manage to get one working it will run fine for a while but It’s a wasteful inefficient and bad way to build anything.

So why does anyone do it?
It’s cheep and for some they are happy rebooting and buying new bits and bobs to keep there monster PC running  (not realising most Apple computers will cost a bit more but run perfectly for 5-7 years without an issue and with constant fee (working) software updates so buying a Mac is actually a better life investment).

Apple have never worked like this PC bits and bobs way.

Everything Apple does is perfectly designed to do the job required, and at the constant and optimal speed expected while always using the least amount of power. This is why Apple is so loved, as Apples attention to detail is untouchable in the industry, they design and optimise everything.

The Apple operating system (software)  is designed perfectly for their hardware and their hardware is optimised to use the very least amount of power while running smoothly under load so no waste in power or efficiency. This is true for their computers as it is for their iPhones.

Samsung on the other hand.

I suppose they are like the PC market when they build their iPhone imitators,  packing these tiny slim rip off iPhones with off the shelf components or badly designed components they have to try to make all fit into what ever size Apple decided to design their next iPhone in.
It can’t be easy copying such an optimised and well designed iPhone and for a while Samsung has got away with it, duping the public into thinking they had something they did not have (an iPhone)

Samsung get away with this magic trick thanks to Android OS  but that also is a poor relation to the Apple iOS as Samsung take androids operating system from Google to bolt on top of their bits and bob components and this allows Samsung to create an Apple looking (but not) operating system.

What you see is a iPhone rip off by Samsung that seems to look and act like its as good as an iPhone but its not, its a pile of junk!
The innards are various suppliers parts stacked up one thing on the other built by who knows what or where and all wrapped up in a look-a-like iPhone operating system.

The problem

Nothing is optimised the OS is Googles Android (copycat iOS) and the processor is designed by snapdragon or some other self designed component company who make a standard processor for any mobile phones  (just an everything  PC component). The power draw is such a serious issue that the battery has to be a much higher rating than you really want in a small phone and when the phone starts to run it sucks a copious amount of battery energy making that run hot.

Welcome the next iPhone imitation from Samsung…BANG!

I should point out that ‘thermal runaway’ which is the term used for a battery over heating to the point that it ignights, can happen in any phone and Apple have had a few batteries over the years fail from a faulty battery.
The stats for this fault is 1 in 10 million so it can happen to Apple who have a billion iPhone out there. This is why Apple design and optimise all their iPhones to run on very low power and run efficiently. If a battery from an iPhone was to have a thermal runaway incident it would be that 1 in 10 million fault, rather than poor design from Apple, as it clearly is with the hundreds of exploding samsung phones and only 2million sold.

Apple release a new iPhone every year

Apple always has new things in it new iPhone models yet it gets slimmer.

How can Apple add haptic feedback to their iPhone as this hardware component takes up battery space and will use energy to create that feeling of touch? but they have a smaller battery in their phone? yet it still runs for the same amount of time or maybe more than before?

Apple designs and designs and designs everything. The processor gets smaller and faster and uses less power so Apple can make the battery smaller and add another bit of Apple designed hardware into the phone and make it smaller still…

This is the information android users don’t understand and this is why Apple are the coolest company and the biggest company and the most loved company.

The moral to this story is if you want an iPhone buy and iPhone

if you want a cheep knock off that everyone will know is a cheep knock off buy a Samsung or anything Android!

but you have to know…. others will be laughing at you secretly with your copycat iPhone!
