  1. It’s a shame the Samsung PR and management are so bad. My corporate and business clients buy between 100 and 150 Samsung high end handsets each year. As from July 1 they want me to switch back to Apple. All they want is service.

  2. We hope that Galaxy AI is coming soon on S22 line up as Samsung VP commented. There is also Petition on Change.org regarding that.
