Samsung Pay Not Working With Third-Party Devices

Published

on


Recently, keeping in with the local US Samsun Member‘s Community & Social Media, the news was received that Samsung might have stopped the Samsung Pay functionality for the third-party devices.

This development came to light a few days ago when several users complained that they cant log in to their Samsung Pay account from a non-Samsung smartphone. Users reported getting an error message stating, ‘ID is not valid. ‘

The issue is now extended to other users as well. The users started to get these messages when many tried to use the service with the Galaxy watches, namely the Galaxy watch 4 in this case.

At this point, it is unclear if this is a deliberate choice made by Samsung to halt the future support on 3rd party devices.

According to the user-posted comments on Samsung Member’s Community and social media platforms like Reddit, when they approached the Samsung representative, they were indeed given a ticket to resolve these issues. However, different users got different responses from the official representatives. 

Some reported that they were informed that non-Samsung phones would no longer work with Samsung Pay, while some were put on hold.

Although, we can see on Samsungs official website’s FAQ and Troubleshoot page that the only requirement for the Samsung Pay on a smartwatch paired with a third-party smartphone is that the device should have OS Android 6.0 or higher.

Is Samsung trying to create a dependent ecosystem like Apple’s, or will it stay neutral like Google Pay? Is it still a waiting game until Samsung clarify on this issue?

However, we will keep you updated until then.

Samsung Ecosystem Matching Apple’s Tight Integration

Published

on


Samsung offers a unique ecosystem that delivers a distinct experience as compared to its competitor, Apple. 

Samsung has its own OG (original) ecosystem and is even better than its rival Apple in functionality. It’s not just a phrase, but here we are mentioning some of the key reasons why, in many ways, it’s better. However, Samsung lagged behind Apple in delivering a coordinated ecosystem with well-designed gadgets, but that doesn’t mean Samsung has a lack of willpower. 

Now, Samsung has covered the gap in some areas and even exceeded Apple in others. Check out the key facts mentioned below:

Samsung’s versatility over Apple 

From then to now, Apple has only offered limited models, tons of monopolies, and high-budget. On the other hand, Samsung offers dozens of phones in any size and budget you could prefer. The same fact is true of tablets: Apple’s lineup has gotten more complex, but Samsung is still offering more options. 

Samsung has an extra lineup: ‘Foldable phones’ – 

Samsung offers dozens of foldable phones; one is a book-style foldable, and the other is a flip, such as the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5. Also, we are gearing up for the latest Galaxy Z Fold 6 series. Whereas Apple has yet to offer its very first foldable device. Samsung even offers a phone with a built-in stylus, the Galaxy S Ultra’. Apple does not do that sort of thing, ever. 

Samsung offers one Galaxy for every Apple device

Samsung offers one Galaxy for each Apple device; for instance, for the Apple Watch, Samsung offers the Galaxy Watch; for AirPods, there’s the Galaxy Buds; for MacBooks, Samsung laptops run Windows; or you can launch Samsung DeX on a Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. Both brands offer monitors, keyboards, and mice. Somehow, Samsung lacks a VR headset compared to Apple’s Vision Pro, but its ecosystem expands to smart home appliances and even TVs. 

Galaxy’ are more compatible than Apple devices.

Comparing the latest devices of both brands, the iPhone 15 Pro Max and the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung offers a better display, more RAM, and faster charging speeds than the iPhone 15 Pro Max. 

Jumping on tablets! Galaxy S9 Ultra versus iPad Pro: Samsung offers a 14.6-inch display, whereas Apple offers a 12.9-inch. It is crystal clear that Samsung is winning here. 

Samsung’s Galaxy devices are now capable of delivering similar smooth connectivity features as Apple’s. Both Apple and Samsung’s ecosystems let you share files, switch audio between devices, and more; the only difference appears in the way of functionality or features’ names.

Samsung has more features than Apple

Samsung offers more features as compared to Apple; for instance, Samsung’s DeX offers a desktop-like experience on phones and tablets and multitasking with features like resizable windows, app minimization, and a taskbar. Samsung prioritizes a UI to optimize multitasking, whereas Apple boasts a supreme app ecosystem. Samsung has yet to offer a traditional desktop operating system; currently, it integrates heavily with Microsoft’s. 

Unlike Apple’s focus on supreme integration within its ecosystem, Samsung prefers to go with quality devices that are capable of performing well independently. Samsung avoids monopolies; you can seamlessly connect your Galaxy devices with non-Galaxy devices like Windows PCs. 

These are key facts that transparently prove Samsung’s ecosystem is far better than Apple’s.

Samsung Introduces Fastest 10.7Gbps LPDDR5X DRAM; Enhanced for AI Chip

Published

on


Samsung Electronics confirmed that it has developed the industry’s first LPDDR5X DRAM. 

The Korean giant’s LPDDR5X DRAM supports the industry’s highest performance of up to 10.7 gigabits per second. Samsung has achieved the smallest chip size among existing LPDDRs using 12nm-class process technology, solidifying its technological leadership in the low-power DRAM market. 

Since AI features are a hot topic in the industry as well as becoming more common on devices themselves, there’s a growing need for powerful and efficient memory. This new LPDDR5X memory not only upgrades performance by 25% faster and 30% more capacious but is also capable of holding up to 32GB in a single package.

All of these upgrades mentioned above make LPDDR5X DRAM ideal for the demands of on-device AI. This new DRAM also boasts 25% better power efficiency as compared to older ones due to features that help to adjust power use based on demands and extend low-power modes, plus enabling mobile devices to deliver long battery life and permitting servers to minimize the total cost of ownership by lowering energy usage while processing data. 

Mass production of this latest 10.7Gbps LPDDR5X DRAM will begin by the second half of the year.
