Samsung's S Cloud is real, featured on the Galaxy Note II
We’ve heard about Samsung planning its own cloud service under the S Cloud name, and now, months after the speculation started, the service has quietly appeared on the Samsung Galaxy Note II at IFA. With no official announcement or any other form of unveiling, S Cloud right now is more of a mystery than a real service. Germans from BestBoyZ found it buried in the settings on the second-gen Note.

Right now, it controls synchronization of photos and videos to Dropbox, and there are little details beside that. Samsung announced that it’s offering 50GB of free Dropbox storage for two years to Galaxy Note II buyers.

Now, we don’t know what this means for Samsung’s own S Cloud, the only thing that seems certain is that the service is delayed. S Cloud might be an essential tool for the newly unveiled Galaxy Camera, that runs on Android and differentiates with its ability to automatically upload captured images to the web.

Maybe not in PhoneArena, but in other fanboy dominated sites (Engadget, TheVerge), we will see mass of comments "Samsung copied i-cloud of Apple".

Yes. This is because PhoneArena is infested by fandroids, and fandroids usually shoot insults of their own.

I really dont see the point in Samsung making a cloud service. I'm sure people will just keep using Google Drive, Dropbox or Skydrive or any of the other Cloud services. Unless they give you more GB for free then those other sevices I just don't see a valid reason for people to use it.

It makes more sense for them to make a cloud based service than apple since they have more variety of devices to sync to cloud with.

TV, mobile devices, computers, some countries... refrigerator and washing machines etc

I am just waiting for Samsung notebooks to start shipping with OS-S.

No it's not necessary, it's another option. Options are good for everyone and are a defining trait of Android. If you don't like all these options, well, you know what closed up optionless platform I'd recommend lol.

Wait a second. Samsung hasn't learnt anything! Although I would've liked them introducing cloud-based services, why did they name it like Apple's iCloud? No wonder Apple users and many smartphone owners feel Samsung copies a lot from Apple!

And I see this is kinda pointless. Dropbox offers 50 GB storage on Note 2 and SGS3. Why would people need 2 cloud services on 1 phone?

and you still say SAMSUNG IS NOT COPYING FROM IPHONE and apple is seeking money from samsick, knowing that the cash that apple's has can by the entire Samsung company.

Always a step behind apple is Samsung. You guys know that Samsung steals apple ideas, notice I didn't say creation. I bet when Samsung come out with the folder for apps, you guys still wont admit that Samsung copies apple ideas.

There's already folders for apps for Samsung devices. Looks like you're the one behind.

Yeah you got me with that one. But who came out with the combine two apps to make a folder first?

Go Launcher did. I had that feature on Go Launcher back on my Galaxy S 2 years ago, before Apple had folders.

50gb of space is quite an exciting offer by Samsung. If they give the right options in the S cloud ( more then just photos and videos) it might be a major hit
