It’s understandable when budget smartphone manufacturers show ads on their phones in order to recoup some of the cost of the phone. However, when a big player like Samsung does the same and sells some phones over Rs. 70,000 ($1,000), it does not fly well with the customers. The company has now confirmed that following user feedback, they will stop showing ads on the stock apps pre-loaded on their device.
In a statement released to The Verge, Samsung confirmed that apps like Samsung Pay, Weather and more won’t see ads that hinder user experience. The timeline, however, is a little vague. Samsung says, there will be an update later this year.
