Re: I really get tired of this bemoaning 'evolution instead of revolution'
Except APL hasn't done anything of note for the past 3-5 years. Name one thing they added that no other had within the past 5-10 years?
There's like two things that I can think of that wasn't available before. A voice assistant isn't one of them, as many people believe -- they just took an application on their own store, improved it slightly, integrated into the system. Meanwhile, Android has widgets (homescreen and lockscreen), expandable notifications (so you don't actually have to go into an application to respond to a message, for example), a system to make sure every component (i.e. mapping, text messaging, homescreen) can be seamlessly replaced by downloading an app on the Play Store.
Samsung's hardware added burst fire camera (S3), touchless gestures based on eye movement (S3), IR blaster (S4, one of the most overlooked feature IMHO).
So no, I don't get where people get off saying Samsung and Google have not been evolving / revolving (?) their software.
