Tom's Hardware Ask Me Anything - Samsung

Ever wanted to ask one of the big hardware or software giants something directly? Why’d they do that? Where’d the idea come from for that last product? What’s in store next? Well, now you have the chance!
Tom’s Hardware is proud to announce the fourth of our brand new community features – ASK ME ANYTHING.
On Wednesday, July 31st, we’ll be hosting the fifth of a series of Tom’s Hardware Ask Me Anythings, and our guests will be official representatives from Samsung!
This thread will be unlocked, open and live for 24 hours starting at 12:00 noon eastern on July 31st, and questions will be moderated and supervised by Tom’s Community Manager, Joe Pishgar, and a full team of Senior Moderators.

    oh man, this one should be good. I have so many things I want to ask samsung... including if they'll ever use a metallic material for their products (only thing holding me back from buying samsung honestly)
  • Giovanni-L
    @vmem haven't you noticed most companies don't use true metal in their phone casings either? They might use higher quality plastic that can LOOK and feel like metal, but it isn't.

    And... your excuse is really annoying. "only if it has metal on it". Most phones do, just crank open the back cover xP

    Well excuse me, I do need to read more than the title before I get excited and comment

    I do find it funny however that you assume I'm an apple fanboi just because I like their aluminum casings... never owned an apple device in my life. have owned alienware and custom desktops, and currently holding an HTC DNA and would simply like more companies than HTC to understand that things like aluminum, or even as giovanni suggest "modified, hardened plastic" is nice. I don't want a $600 device that flexes when I squeeze it, is that really too much to ask?

    Samsung, how much do you hate Apple? A little? A lot? Teeny weeny?
  • loosescrews
    Why do you use a triple core controller in your SSDs? Is it because some competitor used a dual core controller, or is it really the sweet spot in price/performance/power consumption?

    What ever happened to the Spinpoint series HDDs?
