Should samsung go fully with Google as when buying a samsung phone you have to also sign up for a microsoft account to sync photos why don't they interlink with Google then get rid of the microsoft apps then it would be the perfect phone

Hey there

You have choice.

You don't HAVE to sign into a Microsoft account, but you can if you choose to. Most of the world lives on Microsoft so that is why it is offered. Many users also like to use OneDrive.

Google have their equivalents of.Microsoft products and you are free to use them. Me? I use Google One and back up to Google.

However I have also signed into my free Microsoft account for Excel, Word etc.

Yeah. Been requesting them for over 3 years now.

Google is better than Microsoft for photo backups and stuff.

Tbh I like Microsoft, its the best app for creating all kinds of files and I used to it since forever, it looks the same on a phone as on a computer. The only problem that bugs me is that you have to pay for every app and it's digging at my pockets lol

I just paid £59 for a yearly subscription. Microsoft promised it's cheaper than paying monthly and they have some improvements thus year. 🙈
But there are also some Google play payments and £10/month for Spotify if you want books and downloads for when you are offline, I gave up Kindle and Audible now that I have Spotify but I am still paying for Amazon Prime and you get alot of stuff from them plus movies, Netflix also wants money, I gave up on it last year but now I am giving it a trial but I think I will quit again. Everyone wants to pay for their services, almost nothing comes for free, it looks like they don't care they eat up at your pockets for offering entertainment. They give deals very hardly and even those you can't feel that you got something for free after being a long time customer and if they give a deal they will cut off some features so where is the deal anyway?
