Samsung Review

As the above list should have made apparent, Samsung are the manufacturer of some of the best-known mobile devices and handsets around. Overall opinions of the handsets are diverse and variable, and we’re not going to delve into the argument of whether Samsung phones are better or worse than those offered by different companies. What we will do, however, is look at the handsets’ main strengths and weakness when it comes to betting on the move.

Why Is It Good for Betting Apps?

Samsung GalaxySamsung were on of a number of notable companies who banded together some ten years ago in order to develop the Android mobile operating system to challenge the then dominant Windows and Blackberry systems. As such, Samsung devices are now all run on Android and this is a notable advantage when it comes to using betting apps.

The reason why running an Android operating system is so beneficial is because it is one of the two systems (along with iOS) that all bookmakers strive to make their apps compatible with. As such, Samsung phone owners will generally be able to download a mobile betting app that will be compatible with their handset from basically any online bookmaker. What’s more, those apps will be specifically tailored to work perfectly with the operating system of their device.

Why Isn’t It Good for Betting Apps?

When it comes to getting and using mobile betting apps, having either an Android or an iOS operated smartphone gives you a distinct advantage over users of other devices. In fact, apart from individual issues with certain handset models (screen size, memory etc.), there are no overall downsides to using Samsung devices for betting on the move.

Company Overview

Samsung Operating SystemThe Samsung Group is a South Korean multinational conglomerate headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul.

Originally founded back in 1938, the company comprises numerous affiliated businesses, most of them united under the Samsung brand, and is the largest South Korean chaebol (business conglomerate). It is the Samsung Electronics affiliate which accounts for the company’s mobile phones and tablets, and that affiliate is actually one of the world’s largest information technology companies in its own right.

The vast majority of Samsung’s mobile devices are marketed under the Samsung Galaxy Brand, whilst all of their devices utilise the Android mobile operating system.

The first Samsung Galaxy handset was launched back in 2009 and many different models and variants have been produced in the ensuing eight years. Those different handsets and devices have been generally popular with consumers, and Samsung actually boast the largest markets share, in terms of handsets sold, of any single manufacturer. According to figures from 2017, the South Korean company accounted for close to 24% of the smartphones shipped in the first quarter of that year, whilst closest competitors Apple could claim only around 15%.

Obviously their market share means that online bookmakers will continue to support and develop their apps for Samsung / Android so it’s good news if you’ve got one of these devices.
