Samsung focusing on improving software, allocates half of R&D workforce to the cause

Follow: Latest news

Samsung’s great at hardware, but when it comes to software, everyone agrees that the company has nowhere near as good as hardware since, well, forever. But that’s something Samsung has admitted at the Analyst Day meeting today in Korea, and has revealed that almost half of the R&D workforce is now focusing on improving software, and the efforts are to grow further in the coming months.

Samsung’s recent acquisitions of software startups are part of the effort to “address region-specific needs,” and we can only hope some of these efforts are put into TouchWiz as well, which has incessantly become more and more slow, bloated, and unoptimized as Samsung has continued to cram in every feature possible, making the experience a poor one unless one uses the company’s high-end devices.

    If Samsung is not very careful, and takes the “Korean approach” this will lead to
    - some nice new gimmicks, but
    - more bloatware
    - more deviation from standard Android
    - slower devices
    - less updates to newer Android versions, because it’s too much work with all the bloatware
    - less available storage space, e.g. 8gb devices will have only 2gb free
    - the rise of Huawei, Sony, maybe even HTC and Nokia

    Samsung is realeasing firmwares with lots of bugs. I would call it Beta software. Asian companies are the worst.
