Verizon users won't be able to use half of the one part of Bixby?

-Verizon users won't be able to use half of the one part of Bixby that works — Bixby Vision.

Bixby Vision lets you snap photos of things and retrieve relevant images or shopping links. The latter is particularly useful when you're at a brick and mortar store, for instance, and you're looking for a deal online. Bixby Vision lets you find those items on Amazon with the simple snap of a photo, but not so with the Verizon variant of the Galaxy S8 or S8+. According to CNET — and later verified on the AC staff's Verizon version of the Galaxy S8+ — Bixby Vision can snap a photo and look for images, but it won't offer shopping links on Amazon, nor does it offer the option.-(According to AC Central)

Is this is true, no wonder Verizon is bleeding customers. Think is time to jump carriers.

Samsung added injury, I guess this is the insult part.  And Samsung must have had a hand in the limit.

The Amazon app can already use your phone's camera to search for products on its website, but I guess if people can't use the half-baked Samsung digital assistant to perform "half of the one part of Bixby that works" they have no choice but to switch carriers.  Simply buying a phone from a better manufacturer would just be illogical.
