LeBron James’ Samsung has a meltdown

Ouch, it erased everything that was on it. You know LeBron, there are Apple stores everywhere—time to upgrade from the junk.

    Hey Jim, Samsung is spending good money to have celebs hate their junk. Don’t discourage them!

    probably got paid to say that he got his info back

    • Meh. If the data was backed up, it could be restored. Of course, the bit where it loses it? That’s the bit that’s unacceptable.

      Or not.

      I know it may be a hard concept for iOS-exclusive users to grasp, but it is rather easy to almost completely restore an Android device from cloud backup. In terms of that, Android is light years ahead.

      Good on Google to once again bail Samsung’s shoddy work out. Hopefully, Samsung can sort their volatile sh*t out by the time they release GS12 or something.

        i’ve never honestly restored an android device, but I’ve never had any problems restoring from an iCloud backup.

      • Um, it’s easy to restore an iPhone from an iCloud backup, too. That may be a hard concept for you to grasp, but iOS didn’t remain at iOS 4.

        • Agarun Ilyaguyev

          I never said it wasn’t easy with iOS. It’s just isn’t as robust or fluid as on Android.

          • They’ve made it easier than username + password + wait?

            You’re so pathetic. I manage hundreds of iOS devices and a few Android devices. There’s no comparison. Android backup and restore SUCKS compared to iOS.

      • Is it as easy as not randomly losing all your data? To paraphrase John Mulaney, percentage-wise it is 100% easier to not have an unwanted data wipe than it is to restore your data after one.

        • Agarun Ilyaguyev

          Very true indeed. But, Samsung’s hardware reliability has never been great, in portable devices, at least. I still have one of their point and shoots that randomly shuts down, even on full battery. That, apart from shoddy design aesthetics, is why I’ve never been particularly attracted to their handsets in the first place.

        Bull f#cking sh!T! Android is light years BEHIND when it comes to backing up and restoring! God you Google sheep are soo pathetic!

        • Agarun Ilyaguyev

          Ah, here we go, the ‘sheep argument’ (aka. a non-argument); usually made by those who only use one platform and plead ignorance to another.

    Never happened to an iPhone?
