Former Samsung engineer Rezaur Rahman, responding to "What do Samsung employees think of Apple design?" on Quora:
From my personal experience I've seen that Samsung always cares about the revenue rather than making a good product. In the last 6 months I worked in more than 10 projects and the output was subpar. We always have to follow Sales team request. Instead of making a few good models, we have to make loads of unfinished models.(I had to work in Galaxy Star project and I simply hated this product.)
Obviously this is one opinion, and there's every chance it doesn't represent the majority. But interesting all the same (assuming truthful).
