My Samsung smart TV has now discontinued/removed many of the apps it came with, including Spotify. The built-in PVR has some basic usablity problems, (e.g. chase play quits when the real programme ends and doesn’t remember where is left off). These have never been fixed.
My Samsung T3 USB SSD works great, but then it doesn’t need a specific driver, same with my monitor. I have many Sony things (mostly cameras) which work great, but Playstation 3 updates are handled badly, often blocking running of apps if you don’t have them.
To me it not just one brand, but any device that requires continual updates to function i.e. “Smart” devices. The issue is that most brands don’t commit to providing updates for a longer enought period of time. Apple is best at this, but could be better still, seeming to support phones for about 4 years and laptops for 7 years, software wise.
