I found these emojis stupid too.
It's certainly possible that people in East Asia find the American emoji to be bizarre and the Samsung ones to be "correct".
This is the case. I can tell from first hand experience that Korean and Taiwanese users are more familiar with apps like LINE and other messengers that use "stickers." These emojis resemble those styles. Prime example of how cultural norms are not always aligned with western interpretations.
a quality also known in some circles as "Samsung Unique"
That devil one... Nope.
