Samsung suggests that the Galaxy Tab S and Galaxy Gifts can make you happy
Samsung continues to unleash various new commercials that showcase its Galaxy Tab S series. Not long ago, the company suggested that the Tab S was better than Apple’s iPad, and, overall, better than any tablet that sports an LCD screen.

Now, in its latest commercial, Samsung presents another one of the benefits that come with the Galaxy Tab S: Galaxy Gifts. For those who don’t know, Galaxy Gifts offer “premium content” from over 30 providers, for free. Content includes free subscriptions to Wall Street Journal, access to more than 15,000 Marvel Comics, and in-game credits for Asphalt 8 or Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff.

Together with the Super AMOLED screen of the Galaxy Tab S, Galaxy Gifts can really make you happy - or at least that’s what Samsung says. You can watch the new commercial below.

The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Tab S 10.5 aren’t the only Samsung products that come with Galaxy Gifts. Owners of the Galaxy Note Pro, Galaxy Tab Pro, or the Galaxy S5 smartphone are also receiving free content from Samsung.

I have samsung tablet (Galaxy Note 10.1 2014), and I hate the Galaxy Gift. For me it's the Galaxy Bloat. Out of the 3GB RAM that the tablet has, the OS + Galaxy Gift + others app from samsung manage to use it 2GB before any apps using it. I think samsung need to allow user without rooting to be able to remove this gift/bloatware (such as Flipboard, Evernote, etc).

Thats weird. Galaxy Gifts wasnt on the 2014 when you bought it, its a realitively new thing...I know they have Samasung APPS store..but thats just a doesnt really take away from your device. Plus, you bought a note, that COMES with that note software because, well..its the reason why its a note. Why are you complaining about something that is one of the biggest fundamentals of the device? Thats like buying a hotdog, and complaining about the bun being too bready. (PS. you can turn off a lot of those apps, so Im not sure what your complaint is)

Yes I can turn it off, I know, I did. But I really hate the way that Samsung has lots of bloated apps that CAN'T BE UNINSTALL. -- yes it can be turn off, but can't be uninstall. And NOT all the apps is usefull. such as the one that I mention above, that I don't want to use it. such as flipboard, evernote, mymagazine (samsung magazine apps). The thing is, despite of having 3GB RAM, with no apps oppened, I could encounter OUT OF MEMORY. This happened to me while I'm playing INJUSTICE: GOD AMONG US. This is just scary. Now, thing about this, how many new user or user with lack of knowledge of android will buy Samsung Tablet. This user will scream that Samsung is bad because the 3GB RAM they have still lead them to OUT OF MEMORY.

BTW, I believe Samsung called it galaxy gift in new marketing. It was in their older tablet too.

If your running out of room, isnt that normal for any functioning machine? Ever use a computer? If you overload it, wont it run sluggish? This is common behavior for any computing electronic period. Your expecting this machine to run like a high end PC. ALL COMPUTERS devote part of their system to running background tasks, even if you dont use them. If a new user buys the tablet, they arent always going to be like you, and if your having so many problems, figure out why instead of scream foul. The 'galaxy gift' used to be a part of galaxy perks, and once again, same as before, they were 'products you could download' from samsung. They werent automatically installed in. By your definition of bloatware, the same could be said of most of googles software (Play Music, Play Games, Google +, Drive, etc) yet I dont see you screaming foul on them, just samsung's. Considering what USED TO BE on galaxy devices, there is a serious change in the 'bloatware' that comes with them.

If you overload it - then yes. But if somebody else overloads it for you - and forbids you to remove the unwanted apps - then no - it is not normal. And to put salt on the wound - they call it a gift ! Please understand - these apps come preloaded - as system apps. And while google apps have a pretty small footprint - some of these "gifts" are pretty big.

Personally I'm frustrated because I can't buy one without tacky gold bits all over it. Where's the classic black and silver model, Samsung?

Buying a shiny new toy seems to bring a momentary happiness to many.
