It’s been Samsung ’s way to present to the market a smaller, more compact, and budget-friendly version of their flagships when they come out.

Even though I’m the Gadgeteer, I don’t upgrade my personal phoneevery few months like some people might expect. I’m still using the LG G3 that I purchased last August. That means that in a few short weeks that I’ll have been using the same phone for an entire year.

Earlier this year it became apparent that HTC was releasing ads disguised as notifications to users - now Samsung may be on the same path.
