Samsung’s AR Emojis were met with a…lukewarm reception when they launched alongside the Galaxy S9. The augmented reality avatars were regarded as a me-too response to Apple’s Animojis — and more to the point, were downright creepy. But at launch, the company brought one key element to the offering that Apple hasn’t: a

By | 2018-03-08T21:06:04+00:00 March 8th, 2018|Categories: Samsung|

Bixby is, by far, the most frustrating part of the S9. It’s true, of course, that no voice assistant is perfect, but a full year after Samsung’s smart assistant debuted on the Galaxy S8, it still feels unfinished. Of course, the company’s made some significant progress, and a slew of artificial intelligence startup
