Galaxy S6 Edge: Android at Peak Elegance

The LG G4 is coming to market with a leather back, the HTC One M9 looks the same as last year, and the Sony Xperia Z4 isn't coming to the United States. The iPhone has rounded edges now, and they've released a big one, too! Even the Samsung Galaxy S6 is pretty much just an internal upgrade on what was delivered last year, when you consider the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. This device, I contend, is the future of the aesthetically pleasing smartphone.

Milk Video Review – Samsung’s YouTube

Milk Video Review – Samsung’s YouTube

While it might seem strange to call Milk Video "Samsung's YouTube" since it contains actual YouTube content, know this: it's what this software feels like that counts. Over the past few weeks I've been using Samsung's Milk Video on a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 regularly.

Of this I'm sure: once you get past the idea that you're no longer in your video comfort zone, Samsung's work with Milk Video shines.

Exynos M1 could house Samsung’s custom CPU cores

Samsung seems to be really intent in growing more and more independent even when it comes to its internal components. After ditching Qualcomm's Snapdragon for its own Exynos chip, the Korean OEM is apparently now preparing a new Exynos called the M1. What's special about this Exynos M1 isn't simply the fact that it's the next generation Application Processor (AP) for Samsung's devices. It's because chip could very well be the first to carry Samsung's own CPU core design instead of simply licensing it from ARM Holdings.
