  1. Yet another round of gadget spamming from SS. I fail to understand how the amount of installed RAM can actually go down from last year’s version in Core II. If I recall correctly, it had 1 full GB, right? And single cores in 2014, seriously?

    Oh well, who cares. Anybody who buys Sammy instead of Moto at that price range probably deserves to be ripped off anyways – for being a dumb@$$ LOL!

    It’s just that the much needed competition is just not materializing 😦
