In his article, he’s put words to things I’ve so far been unable to describe to people myself:
“the Galaxy S4 is uninspired but good”
“does not feel like a premium product. It is plasticky and sort of embarrassing to carry around, though its cheapness does lend it a sense of devil-may-care durability.”
Let’s not even speak of the system fonts, ugly but ignorable on a phone and downright offensive on a tablet. No, while much improved from several years ago, one does not use Android in 2013 for its looks.
On Linux as a deskop:
“Trying to compute like a normal with Linux is, after all these years, still an exercise in masochism.”
I sometimes get to play around with Android devices (it’s interesting to see how they’re changing), and recently I acquired a ZTE One to have a look at Firefox OS. I’m intending to write a review about that soon.
