Bixby was the first thing I removed / disabled on my phone, fucking hate that crap constantly getting in the way, last thing needed is it doing even more

There are two reasons I went from Samsung to pixel and will never go back: 1) Google call screening 2) no bixby

Thankfully on my older Samsung A40, Bixby can be (and has been) completely disabled with a single tick box

I went from Pixel to S22. Damn I miss the call screening.

I must have disabled Bixby when I setup my phonw though, as I've never seen anything from it.

> 1) Google call screening

Behind camera performance, this is my top pixel must have. Screens spam. Screens hidden numbers. Even screens numbers you've never talked to before, which really pays off with all the spoofed number scam calls.

Everyone I know gets at least one call per day. I get MAYBE one per month that slips through.

Guess this shows how sad my life is as without any call screening at all, I don't get any scam / spam / unwanted calls, hell I hardly even get any calls / texts at all. If my phone rings once a month it's unusual and 99% of my texts are automated credit card notifications regards the monthly amount about to be taken from my bank, or notifications from the chemist regards my meds

Your phone provider might be providing spam blocking services instead

There is a similar function on Samsung phones. I have it on my S22

Well someones got to compete with google since siri is shit.

Siri IS garbage! I will say that Alexa is better than Google home speakers though

And, what measurable difference do you perceive with the Google page instead?

When I had Samsung phones, I remember how painful it was to disable all of the Samsung BS. No, I do not want Samsung Internet. No, I don’t want Samsung Mail. No, I sure don’t fucking want Bixby. It’s what I imagine if Siri and Alexa had a mentally handicapped child together.

I don't believe in actually being able to disable it and also having to have an active subscription to Samsung in order to do so......


passinghere t1_j9s8iwv wrote

What on earth are you on about. I have no subscription to samsung and it's completely disabled on my phone so I fail to understand this "claim" you are making

My s9 will not let me reassign or even use the button. So it has been a forever attempted to avoid button because anytime you bump it it immediately pulls up Bixby and tells you I have to log into a Samsung account. And the behavior is changeable inside of the Samsung app which requires you to be logged in to do anything in.

Or, maybe here's a Bixby feature that justifies using it.
