That’s right, Samsung is once again spamming Galaxy phones with advertisements, this time for the Note10.
This time around, push notifications advertising the Note10 are being sent out by at least three pre-installed applications — Samsung Pay, Bixby, and the Samsung Push Service. Bixby wants you to ask it about the Note10, Samsung Pay is offering points when you look at the phone’s product page, and Samsung Push Service just gives you a banner ad with no indication of where it came from. I received the Bixby ad on my international Galaxy S10e, but I haven’t personally seen the others.
Does Apple push unasked-for ads like this? I can’t ever recall getting an ad of any kind from Siri.
