The most expensive Pixel is going for $899 with similar hardware specs with Samsung being a bit better in the camera part. People would be wondering if spending $300 more for the 128g/8g of RAM version of ultra over the 128gig/12g for the Pixel 7 Pro for $899 is worth it.
Then consider if Samsung copied some of Pixel's cool functions. Like people see they'd be spending more for the same things for far more money. Then there's the regular Pixel 7 for $599.
I do however feel that these betas of the UI 5.0 are underwhelming and offer nothing remarkably different or innovative. It feels more like UI 4.1 to 4.5 than a whole revamped OS system in the overall UI series.
My whole point is that Samsung's UI overlay on the android OS is not getting creative and innovative. This latest iteration may be the most unremarkable UI I've ever from Samsung when making an fresh attractive OS.
The hardware has so much power but little it being added to make it standout unlike it did from 4.0 to 4.1. 3.xx to 4.0 may be the most noticeable update for Samsung.
I hope they reading this because 5 betas in (this is the most I've ever seen) and nothing really stands out.
That's what a premium phone should have. If Samsung has a better design then go with it.
In the case of the media player, they don't, which of course is subjective. Hence the post to poll how many people would like to have the Android 13 player on their Samsung devices.
Every company should listen to their customers and the purpose of the beta forum is for testing AND input from customers.
Perhaps you can start a different thread to poll how many people would feel like their Samsung flagship phone is somehow devalued if they had the Android 13 media player? I doubt their would be a lot of likes on that one as people want what they want.
Keep hitting the like button people if you want to get Samsung's attention and possibly sway them to go with the Android 13 player!
Android is Google, so the features like that cool media player, are Google products/creations.
Seriously, this is a poll to see who wants Android 13 player. That's it!
By the way, Samsung is partnering with Google. Hence we have Google Messages as standard install on Samsung flagship phones. Pretty sure Google Messages is a Google product, yes? That's not mimicking it's adopting and integrating.
