The difference between Apple and Samsung industrial design

Rene Ritchie, writing for iMore:

Again, I realize this won’t matter to some people, and will serve as fodder for jokes for others. Software stability, some will no doubt cry. Yet bits can and are fixed. Software gets updated and services invisibly improved. Atoms, not so much. There’s no magic patch that will ever bend those elements back into alignment. They, and owners, are stuck like that forever.

I heard a lot of reviews of the S6 and S6 Edge (two baffling variants of the same device) praising Samsung's move toward a more "Apple-like" design aesthetic, favoring higher quality materials and focusing on build quality. Yet it's exactly little things like this that undermine their efforts and show time and time again that they're the inexperienced imitators constantly playing catch up. It's disconcerting to see the complete disregard that a design team for a multi-billion dollar corporation has for its own products. It doesn't just display a lack of care, but ultimately a lack of pride.
