trying to understand why Samsung provide a service like global step challenge and then allow cheats to dominate the board every month.. it's not rocket science that if someone dies 200000 steps a day they are cheating or if on average they have done 2 steps a second , every second eithout sleep since the challenge opened they are cheating. why don't Samsung care about this and stop it ? it puts a lot of people off using the service
I don't understand the point of having this challenges while are not fair. Should be removed, is for nothing. This ***** of rigged competition doesn't make me to use SHealth, so it's usless to keep it. According to Samsung this guys they did not sleep in past 24 hours, they were just making steps.
Not only are they cheaters but their pictures (if they have one) are not real. They grab a picture of a bodybuilder or athlete and use it for their own when in reality most of them are fat lazy slobs who sit in front of the TV all day while their Samsung watch is tied to a fan or paint shaker.
Still so upset about this... He has over 181,000 steps and the challenged opened this morning. He would have had to run non-stop at a marathon pace for the last 24 hours. It's ridiculous.
This bugged me last month throughout the challenge !!!!!!
Did 14 thousand steps today and nearly died when I seen some old fella is nearly finished!!!!!!!! Like I walk A LOT all day every day and it took me 3 weeks to finish the last challenge!!!!! So annoyed with these fakers
What upsets me is that by the cheaters doing this - the top 30/10/5 percent is out of wack also. I hit 10-14k steps a day via work and a treadmill. Been at it hard since new year. Hit my 25 pound loss last week. I also noticed that Nike Run is the same way, a bunch of cheaters and for? It's not like we get Samsung Points or something SMH....
Has anyone reached out to Samsung, perhaps if they get bombarted they will do something - afterall they have to make some type of money from them offering the ads/offers ...
I have. Contacted Samsung several times as have others. They respond with a poorly worded form letter that in effect, says they monitor for cheats and encourage you and I to step up our game .. I say poorly written because I'm assuming it is an AI translation from the original language letter and apparently their AI is about the same quality as their code writers who are incapable of writing a code that boots out impossible results daily..
