My Experience: Samsung Galaxy Phones versus the iPhone6
Just a quick note and not really a detailed review of mobile phones....
I have been a Samsung Galaxy owner since the first Galaxy S came out on the market. On a daily basis I work on two MacBook Air computers; but I wanted the openness of an Android phone; so I bought the Galaxy S, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3, and Galaxy S5. Of those four mobile phones, my favorite was the Galaxy S3. I skipped the S4. My last Samsung phone was the S5.
Finally, Apple delivered a large screen with the iPhone6; and at the same time, I was having consistent problems with my Galaxy S5. I had to reboot the S5 many times a day as the touch screen just would go bonkers whenever it wanted to which was mostly anytime the screen got a touch of moisture on it.
In a nutshell, I find the iPhone6 to be a much more reliable, attractive and useable phone that the Galaxy phones. The iPhone6 is simply a great phone and I'm so happy to have retired all my Samsung Galaxy phones and do not see any path back to Samsung now. Apple really did a great job with the iPhone6.
What are some of the things that stand out to me as a huge ex-Android fan?
The iPhone6 is a very attractive phone and feels just right in my hand.
TouchID works perfectly and I like that very much.
I am OK with the tight integration with iTunes and less flexibility (compared to Android) because so far, the iPhone6 has been very reliable.
I have read many great reviews about the iPhone6 camera, but I found the Galaxy S5 has a far superior camera and takes much better photos than the iPhone6 camera.
So, in a nutshell, I am hooked on the iPhone6 and take it everywhere with me now; but I also take the Galaxy S5 with me, along with the iPhone6, when I need a great camera for night time flash and night mode (no flash) photos. The Galaxy S5 camera is far superior for flash and night mode photos; but other than that, the iPhone6 is a better phone (for me) in most all other aspects.
I am connecting a samsung smartphone (galaxy s3) to a freebsd machine. It does not automatically mount. When plugging this machine in, the following message appears:

Well, I've had my new Galaxy S around one day now and I must say, I am not sure if I regret buying it or not. Before buying it, I read a lot of reviews about the Galaxy S (e.g. Samsung I9000 Galaxy S review: From outer space), including reviews of problems with the GPS and some intermittent WiFi...

I recently got my shell account (HP UX v11) created by our sysadmin and am having problem deleting with the backspace key.
After doing some reading, I believe I need to enter a custom "STTY..." statement in my profile.
Can someone please help me with the correct "STTY" sequence... (3 Replies)
