    I can't stand that piece of garbage assistant that randomly keeps popping up thinking I called her and also appears in the Camera app sometimes when I am trying to take a photo.

    She is no different than Micro$h4ft's Cortana so here's how to disable her firstly, and secondly, we can remap that button to launch any app you want.

    1) Install Package Disabler Pro
    2) Enable its admin mode
    3) in the search bar, type Bixby and disable all but the things you see unchecked in the picture below because if we disable those, the Bixby button won't function altogether:

    4) Install Bixby Button Remapper

    5) Run it and enable the accessibility service

    6) Now choose what function you want for your Bixby Button. I chose Flashlight since I can launch the camera by double tapping on the power button quickly but feel free to choose whatever you think you use most

    LOL. I refuse to purchase Samsung phones, so I won't have to worry about that sucky thing. Thanks for showing the people that have how to kill it.

    Doesn't Bixby logo look like an All-seeing-Eye aka Telemetry Collector and Disposer.
    Do you buy Apple phones, then?

    The Illuminati of Android smartphones, LOL.
    Oh good heavens, no. I am on my third iPhone provided by my employer and I think they are a joke. They do have a really decent camera, but otherwise I find nothing desirable about them. In my opinion they are extremely overrated and represent poor value for the price. But, I'm really glad that I have been able to form an objective opinion about them on my employer's dime over the past four years. I am really glad I never had to waste any of my own money on one to find out they suck.

    I only buy inexpensive smartphones for the same reasons that BGA turdbooks are only a reasonable value if they are priced under $500. Disposable electronics filth should be priced according to what it is. It should not be a noticeable financially loss to toss one into the trash when it stops working or gets broken. Just remember to smash it to smithereens with a sledgehammer first so dumpster-divers cannot steal any personal information off of it.

    This is why my next phone won't be a Samsung bloatphone.

    To me it looks like a Golf Club head coming toward an open eye, just like the Bond Eye seeing the shot coming :)

    i own iphone 7+, s8. siri is cool but limited. bixby is openworld but **** to recognize my voice. iphone is fluid but i prefer s8.
    All electronic price are boosted.. even crap phone, all companies need an benefice otherwise its over. My main rule on electronics is always to buy what i can buy again if it broke...People saying it's an investment buying flagshit don't know what is in reality a true investment.. at the end it is just a lost as always.

    Indeed. Anyone that considers electronics of any kind to be an investment is a fool.
