Samsung Galaxy S6’s battery turns out be removable after all

Samsung Galaxy S6’s battery turns out be removable after all

Two of the most beloved features by Samsung Galaxy enthusiasts up to this point have been that the smartphones featured a removable battery and expandable storage space via user memory cards. But when Samsung debuted the latest models at Mobile World Congress last week, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, those features appeared to be no more, with the devices now sealed in a glass unibody design. What ever will Galaxy users do now to brag over their iPhone-using counterparts?

MWC 2015 round-up; Samsung, HTC lead the way

Though we weren’t expecting a whole lot, Mobile World Congress was actually rather delightful this year. We got exactly what we came for, and even some additional surprises from top OEMs and others. There were some obvious highlights, like the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but some other highlights like Jolla’s new tablet. HTC brought out their new smartphone for us to check out, but also slapped a fitness band on our wrist and VR headset on our face. But that wasn’t all! Here are some of our highlights from MWC 2015.

Samsung now rumored to eye MediaTek for some handsets

Samsung now rumored to eye MediaTek for some handsets

It's rumors like this that make you wonder if there's more to the breakup between Samsung and Qualcomm than first believed. It is, after all, not exactly unreasonable for the Korean manufacturer to push its own Exynos chips to the forefront, but little did we expect that it might be pushing Qualcomm out of its products in more ways than one. Now MediaTek is entering the picture, with Taiwanese media painting a scenario where the chip maker will be present in some of Samsung's future smartphones.

Samsung Dream Doghouse includes hot tub

Some of us stuff a pillow in a box and make our cat's day; others buy their dog a miniature doggy mansion and go to bed at night knowing their pet could lounge in its own hot tub if it wanted. Such a reality has gotten a little more real with Samsung's new Dream Doghouse, a somewhat small clear-sided doghouse with all the trimmings Fido might want, including art work on the walls. The company only made one of them, so if you're already polishing your credit card, don't get your hopes too high.

Samsung’s not giving up on VR: Gear VR GS6 hands-on

Samsung’s not giving up on VR: Gear VR GS6 hands-on

I honestly didn't think I'd have to mess up my charming, hobo-like mess of hair so often at MWC 2015, but Samsung wasn't going to let me get away without trying the new Gear VR for the Galaxy S6. An updated version of last year's Gear VR for the Galaxy Note, the new model keeps the same basic principle - your smartphone screen, when docked up-front, becomes a stereoscopic display - but updates it to suit the new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge Samsung announced on Sunday. Thing is, having already been wowed by the HTC Vive, can Samsung's altogether more straightforward headset compete?

Galaxy Note 5’s Gear VR will be a “full-on consumer” release

Galaxy Note 5’s Gear VR will be a “full-on consumer” release

This week at GDC 2015, Oculus Rift's John Carmack suggested that the company would be going full-on consumer release within Samsung's next release cycle. This does not necessarily mean that Oculus Rift will be released inside Samsung's next release cycle, but that Samsung's next Gear VR would be released in a big way. That very likely means that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will have a Gear VR released right alongside the smartphone. So look to the Samsung Gear VR 2 - for Galaxy S6, revealed this week - to get an idea of where you're going later this year.

Galaxy S6 benchmarked, outpaces every other smartphone

Galaxy S6 benchmarked, outpaces every other smartphone

Ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge reveal, a lot of discussion was aimed at Samsung’s choice of SoC for their new flagship. Stateside, we’re familiar with Snapdragon SoC processors in our phones, so anything else seems strange on paper). Samsung was developing their new Exynos SoC, using an impressive new 14nm manufacturing process. Still, they weren’t offering a Snapdragon alternative, so it seemed like a wholesale snubbing. If the latest benchmark results from Geekbench can be believed, we might know why.
