I just read about this in a news story while I was looking up info about the Samsung Galaxy S20, the phone I was planning on upgrading to, but now I'm not so certain I'll be choosing it. If there's one thing I won't tolerate ads in, it's a core app vital to the device's basic functionality like the Phone app. It's completely unacceptable, even moreso on a phone that costs hundreds of dollars.
Samsung is the only OEM that I know of that floods their native stock apps with Ads. It is the most annoying thing ever. Like who does that?! Why would you ever do something like that to your consumers?! I vote for all Ads to be removed from stock apps Samsung.
Why am I suddenly getting ads in a phone I paid for !?!? Are you kidding me samsung and yes iv opted to not get ads in ever app i can yet Ads in the default weather app and ads in my samsung pay ? At this rate I can't wait to get a non samsung phone what a joke
I completely second this. It is embarrassing to ask this much for a phone and inject Samsung apps with ads. At least allow the option to delete these apps. Or opt out. It's crazy Samsung does not offer an ad-free experience in their flagships. It just screams cheap!
