I tried to open a "my cat demands attention" video but I could not, because Bixby decided it wanted my attention at that moment. The number of times Bixby has interfered with my ability to make or retrieve a phone call, open an app, look up something on the internet or listen to an audio book or just do anything but answer a call are uncountable. On second thought. Maybe that's why my calls get dropped mid conversation.
Bixby by far has to be the most obnoxious, annoying thing I have ever encountered.
I have been a loyal Samsung Galaxy phone user for many years ( and an avowed I phone hater), but I cannot put up with Bixby, which I understand is on all Galaxy phones from the 8S to the new models. I want the freedom to manage my phone as I choose without some childish piece of software attempting to dictate to me.
I dumped McAfee virus software years ago because I found it to be like an overbearing mother. Bixby is like a needy child who craves constant attention.A ll I want is to be left alone to operate my device and not spend most of my time trying to work around this obnoxious beast.
I understand that the new Google phones are pretty good. I'm willing at this point to put up with inferior camera technology and other quirks simply because at this point I can't pick up my G 9 S or press a button without Bixby coming to life and slapping it's hand over the controls and demanding I say something.
