Posted in: From 'Sam-suck' to Apple rival: the Samsung transformation See in context

I vastly prefer LG over Samsung when it comes to Korean technology. My personal opinion, of course, but their phones, the LG Signature TVs, even home appliances have a very classy design and build.

As for Samsung, the only reliable thing I have from these folks is an External DVD drive that I bought before coming to Japan. Then again, it says "Samsung-Toshiba" in the back sticker, so maybe that's why.

@Barto

The article wasn't bashing Samsung. Just because it's stating the corruption inside the company doesn't mean it's hating on it.

There was no mention of Japan anywhere in this article. So... What's with this whole "Japan Inc" thing?

The article was written by, what looks like based on name, Korean.

People do buy Japanese phones. Japan sucks at marketing, not building a good phone.

Sharp is a JAPANESE company, owned by a Taiwanese company.

Its like saying that Volvo isn't Swedish, but Chinese because it's owned by Geely, which IS NOT THE CASE.

Anyone with a working brain in their head knows that, by July, this thing will be in the past. Barely anyone will remember it. Rio olympics had the Zika virus thing, they weren't cancelled or postponed. Why should this one?

Folks, let's be real here. COVID19 is nothing more than an extra tough flu and pneumonia.

You can't debate with someone who only sees the victim in the mirror all the time

Of course you had to say that. Let's take one example out of 100+ millions.

The whole "Japanese+apologies+victim attitude" joke is getting on my, and many others' I bet, nerves.

Posted in: Leipzig apologizes after Japanese fans asked to leave stadium over virus fear See in context

Y'all wouldn't ask Germans or Italians to leave, despite them being Europe's corona-hotspots.

Racism. Racism everywhere. I'm glad the Japanese were kind hearted and didn't justifiably retaliated.

Also, the comments here, once again, are a joy to read. Y'all can't stand the fact that the Japanese are, for once, being apologized to, so y'all bring up Keno restaurants and what have you. Familiar names, too.

Posted in: Australian politician calls for immediate review of all anime due to depictions of 'child abuse' See in context

While there is some DISGUSTING work in these mediums, they're a very, very small percentage of the overall anime and manga industry and, except the weird otaku dudes, no one else even knows their existence. This is this weird case of products being known more outside the country they are produced in.

I find it funny. He has the right to call these specific works out. What he doesn't is make the entire mediums have a bad image because of specific anime and manga.

And since we're on the subject, why not have a look at the DISGUSTING and dangerous themes portrayed in, actually, a decent amount of western entertainment, meaning movies, games and music? Gangbanging, robbing, shooting, misogyny, raping, drug (ab)use. To the point of sounding normalised. The lyrics of song "Gucci Gang" are all that needs to be read (and I'm a huge old-school hip hop fan).

My point? If you want to do work, do it properly. Don't just aim for specific things.

Have a look at the K Pop industry. This is child's play compared to that.

Lmfao yeah, let's not even touch on the tragedy by the name of Facebook or Yahoo. 4000 accounts out of millions is practically nothing. Quit overreacting for upvotes.

Comments are sad as usual...

A company goes out of its way - AND its business industry - to provide masks for the population, and you have people here talking about Sharp being a damn Foxconn subsidiary...

Posted in: Sharp releases details of 5G smartphone ahead of spring launch See in context

But the new Samsung Galaxy also has this very feature, JJ Plane. I don't see you hating on that one, or the "ultra thin glass" of the new Z Flip, which is proven to be a lie.

Easy to hate on Japanese companies nowadays...

Anyway, good to see Sharp making such quality phones, although I wish for 2 things:

Please get rid of the double notch thing... I love Japanese tech to death, but that's just hideous.

Make an effort to release them worldwide, or at least in Europe or the US.

Otherwise keep up the good work Sharp. I love my XZ Premium too much to even consider an upgrade, but who knows.

Posted in: Samsung joins the fold with Galaxy Z Flip smartphone See in context

I just hope they spend R&D on the BUILD QUALITY and DURABILITY of the device. That's why I dislike Samsung and I much prefer LG (you could even call me an LG fan) when it comes to South Korean electronics. Samsung has a serious tendency of shooting itself in its foot. Galaxy Note 7, the 1st gen Fold, just to name a few.
