In the final hours it made some noise on social media for some Samsung Galaxy Z Flip photos too application advertising. The first reaction was exactly what you were expecting: rage on the part of titterers wondering how it might be possible for such an expensive cellphone to show advertising.
However, when we dive deeper into the topic, we see a few points to clarify. It is not true that advertising is displayed on the phone, because it is only displayed on a specific part of it if there are any specific terms that we will explain. We tell you why this happened and why it is unlikely to happen to other Samsung phones without the consent of users.
Samsung's display shows phone advertising, only if you accept

When we analyze the shared photos we see first, that the in-app advertising is displayed in a specific category (locations) and, second, that this is location-based, so it is often necessary for someone to give you permission (by default the phone app does not request location). I mean you must take all these steps in order for the phone to display advertising
- You must turn on the phone system
- In it, you should go to the section & # 39; Places & # 39;
- If you're in the & # 39; Places & # 39; you must hit the & # 39; Allow & # 39;
- After enabling, you should provide & # 39; Start & # 39;
- After starting, you must grant local permissions
- Finally, the terms and conditions of use must be accepted by manually checking the two boxes
Regardless of the point whether a cell phone shows advertising or not in a particular phase of the traditional system, Six steps must be taken to make this possible
The app shows advertising after a user accepts that Samsung will use its location to recommend services and location-related services, all of which belong to the app category and not entirely
On the other hand, the issue of advertising is also controversial. What we do is by providing so many permissions in & # 39; Places & # 39; to allow the phone show recommendations for sites related to our site. Restaurants, hotels, patisseries, shops, etc. After accepting this content for display, related ads may be displayed.
All this content is displayed in & # 39; Places & # 39; and do not fit into the parts of the telephone or the telephone, which are things we use for phones. It is a function of one UI, so it's not limited to Flip, but an optional feature for Samsung phones.
