    Honestly I went from iPhone 6 to the S8 I love it but I regret not getting the plus. Should I upgrade to 9 for the few better features and for the big screen as well.

    Samsung, if you are listening:
    You need to be the best at one thing that people care about whether it be screen, camera, interactivity, and or technology features. Then, the major problem you need to address is your "Samsung Experience" (UX). Your Samsung Experience (UX) sucks. It's just terrible. You know why? it's because all the executive calls are made by your executives who don't understand what Americans want. Your design sucks. It will never be as minimalistic as that of Apple as long as it's made by the same terrible artists you have been hiring. The competition you have is not with Apple, but it should be with the market in acquiring customers. With that said, when Apple comes out with AR moji, don't make your own version of the same thing. If you are going to do copy what they do just to make a statement, be greater than them at it, or don't even try because your own interpretation of this version is downright creepy which is the general consensus of the public. Although, It's really not so important that the consumers considers one of the many features you have to be "creepy". What's really important is that you are now considered as a number two by the consumers. Being the best at one feature and delivering all other basics as all other phones do is way better than trying absurdly at something just to prove a point that you've come as far as Apple in terms of software development.

    If you want to be the best in the business which means beating Apple to it, give the customers a reason to stay. Your biggest market is people who want nice looking phones and soft-core nerds who thinks you have the best technology and they are also people who don't understand that specs aren't everything. Make the UX great, which means working with google (not against google by making a horrendous feature like Bixby) and make the whole android experience better, trim down on customizability (the more options the consumer has, the more the consumer will desire perfection -> unhappiness). Make the UI simple and elegant (your samsung app icons look terrible and UI in the app look terrible). Expand your market by being appealing to the older generations who know nothing but apple (the only way you can do this is NOT to show off your tech, but it is to show how easy it is to use Android phones now that Samsung has made it with its customer oriented technology).

    You don't dominate the market until you dominate the North American market. You will never dominate the North American market unless someone who understands the culture makes the executive decisions. So far you've been doing okay because your phones are pretty and you have been making your pointless technologies seem great through marketing. But, you will always be number 2 unless you make some great shifts in the development. I believe the major shift that needs to happen for you is not the hardware development but the software development.

    Yours Truly,
    You make me proud to be Korean,
