By contrast, Android has turned into a free-for-all.
For instance, one of the versions of the S4 phone has at least four different ways to watch video, including one that comes standard with Android.
Some content works with one but not the others.
And to watch video on one of the Samsung apps, the one called Samsung Hub, you have to navigate through two screens trying to sell you video that I couldn't get to work on the other apps.
As much as it adds to the clutter, Samsung would rather you use its service and not the standard Android one.
That way, Samsung rather than Google gets revenue from video sales.
Samsung Electronics Co. has its own app store, too, to rival Google's own Play store on the same device.
That doesn't mean you shouldn't consider buying the S4.
