Samsung presenter Rachel Riley is an iPhone user

“Rachel Riley, who also hosts UK quiz show Countdown, presented the new Galaxy Note (alongside some other Samsung executives) at their Unpacked event today,” Benjamin Mayo reports for 9to5Mac.

“Recognizing her from the UK TV show, I thought I’d check her Twitter,” Mayo reports, “amusingly she’s an iPhone user.”

    1. Nothing flimsy about Samsung devices! Your FUD is unbearable. As a matter of fact, the Galaxy line is top shelf and F Off with your plastic casing BS! Oh and BTW, take a look at the new Note 4 and see what real revolutionary engineering and design is truly all about.

      This said, the iPhone is also a nice device and occupies an important space is the iFan illusionary world.

        1. What idiots like you miss out on is the fact that OS efficiency is far note important than crazy ass hardware specs that are required to run an inefficient OS. 64 bit is readily available for Android but there is no real need for it. iIdiots like you are simply weak on making any worthwhile points. Enjoy your large screen iPhone along with NFC and the ever increasing copying of Android on your new iPhone 6. Remember my little puppet that iIdiots ridiculed larger from factor phones and NFC for the last 3 years!

          1. When anyone but Apple has the superior hardware it’s the most important thing in the world, but turn the tables and “… OS efficiency is far note important than crazy ass hardware specs …”

            Funny how you clowns rationalize your inferiority.

    1. This is what she does for a living. She didn’t sell her soul, lol. Selling her soul would be abandoning her chosen phone and platform for money. Her soul is with Apple and it’s still very much intact (AFAIK).

    2. She may be blonde but she is anything but stupid, as she is a maths expert I guess she understands the process of making as much money as you can before your looks and appeal start to dissipate. There’s only so much time the nations favourite GND will retain her mantle.

  1. Regarding Samsung’ new products:

    1. The Edge looks horrible. If they would of made both sides curved and uniform it would be a winner. In addition, the response time from clicking the screen to an element appearing is slowwww.

    2. Including the Note into a virtual reality headset design is a great idea, but the overall product is kludgy. During a tech writer’s demo they had to reboot the phone numerous times. Will this product ship this year, if ever?

    3. Does the Note 4 have a 64-bit processor? As I stated in 1, it looks slow.

    4. I like the watch design.

    1. If companies have a soul Samsung is at the top of being Seoul soulless. There is no other company as eager to sell their mothers and daughters in order to try to stay ahead.

      I think people who buy their products are either just too vacuous, cheap or equally lacking in soul & taste.

  2. She was hired as a presenter, and one known for technology (she also presents The Gadget Show). No claims were made by her or Samsung as to what devices she uses. I think Samsung have questionable marketing ethics as much as the next guy, but they really don’t seem to have done wrong here. If anything, they were fairly open-minded to hire a presenter who uses Apple equipment.

    I really don’t think they can be called out on this one. Making a giant iPhone 5 knockoff and a bizarre, unusable one with a wonky edge? Yep. This? Nope.

    1. I agree. While it is interesting to note where Samsung promoters are actually iPhone users, it is important for people to separate the Professional Persona from the Personal. She earns her living by her being involved in the tech world current events. Unpacking a new Samsung phone is just part of the gig. I drive a Mini Cooper, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be happy to be paid to help introduce another new car if I was an automotive reporter. Get real folks; you can take this partisanship too far.

  3. MDN why do you keep saying “convicted?” No one gets “convicted” by a lawsuit. Convictions only come from criminal cases, and only the government can bring a criminal case. Quit contributing to Americans’ almost complete ignorance of the justice system.
