Samsung is under investigation by the Taiwanese authorities for allegedly hiring people, mostly students, in order to “post malicious comments” online about their main Android competitor, HTC. The Taiwanese Fair Trade Commission said, through spokesperson Sun Lih-chyun, that ”the case was set up last week after we received complaints”.

Apparently, documents surfaced showing Samsung’s involvement in recruiting students in order to criticize HTC, while praising Samsung at the same time, anonymously, on the internet. If Samsung is found guilty the company could be fined Tw$25 million (about $835,000).

Samsung Taiwan has not been informed, as per the subsidiary’s claims, about the investigation, but on its Facebook page it was published that it regretted “any inconvenience and confusion from the Internet event”. Furthermore, “Samsung Taiwan has halted all Internet marketing such as posting articles on websites”.

Why cant people just accept that HTC is garbage?


No one is gettin paid to bash it, we just experience bull#### with their phones and have the need to let people know how much of a piece of #### they are.. You have to be a good citizen and give people the heads up when they are goin to make a poor life choice.

Maybe if yall bash Samsung for having some cheap plastic on their phone and make the us version of the Galaxy line equal with international the international version maybe Samsung would actually be by far the best phone. Just like apple Stan, Samsung Galaxy s fan act like Samsung does no wrong.

All the phones that the US gets have faults. It's just personal preference at this point. I'm getting the HTC One, clearly knowing what I'm getting myself into. Yes, I will need my charger on deck, but I already do now with my S3, plus the build quality on HTC's, for the most part, are so much better than Samsungs.
