Samsung’s inescapable S6 app bloat fuels the microSD fire

Samsung’s inescapable S6 app bloat fuels the microSD fire

Samsung may have a potential smartphone hit on its hands with the Galaxy S6, but the specter of inescapable apps still casts a pall over TouchWiz. The new flagship - and its curved Galaxy S6 edge sibling - see Samsung's Android skin brought more in line with Google's Material Design than ever before, but there's still a headache involved, especially if you've opted for the smallest memory variant. That's because, while Samsung has apparently done its best to pre-populate the S6 with the sort of apps the company believes most users will want, there's not much room to be rid of them if you don't agree.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge Review

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge Review

Samsung has a lackluster track record making flagship smartphones with serious lust-appeal. Its plastic-bodied Galaxy range was the Camry trying to play in Mercedes and Audi territory, earnestly ticking the boxes on the spec sheet, but failing to grasp that owners care about a sense of prestige as much they do a roster of the latest functionality. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and its flashy Galaxy S6 edge sibling are a lesson hard-learned, then, with both patchy sales and increasingly vocal criticism in 2014 demanding changes be made. 2015 might well be the fiercest year in phone tech yet; these two are evidence of Samsung's A-game.

LG G4 photos leaked, possibly “Note” variant

LG G4 photos leaked, possibly “Note” variant

With the HTC One M9 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 set to arrive in stores in the next few weeks, we can turn our attention a bit to this year's MWC no-shows, like LG, for example. Numerous leaks of what might be the LG G4 have already surfaced, and LG itself is giving fodder by teasing what could be in its next flagship. This latest batched of leaked photos, four in total, is particularly curious. While some might bill this to be the LG G4 itself, it might very well be an LG G4 Note version instead.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge release details and first-impressions

Samsung has announced US availability for its flagship Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones, and what better way to celebrate them landing on the SlashGear review bench than an impromptu photo-shoot. Announced back at Mobile World Congress earlier this month, the metal- and glass-bodied Android smartphones mark the beginning of a new - and welcome - design direction for Samsung, swapping the plastic of their forebears for a far more premium feel. The S6 edge, meanwhile, raises the stakes with a double-curved AMOLED display. Consider the gauntlet thrown down well and truly to the iPhone 6 and HTC One M9; read on for our first-impressions.

Samsung tipped to make foldable smartphones in 2016

Wait a second, you might be saying, didn't they already make flip-phones in the early 2000s? Didn't I own a Motorola RAZR back in the day? What's the big deal here, Samsung? And what does LG have to do with any of this? The future, says this Samsung and LG rumor, includes displays that fold - not just hinges. These phones would go one step beyond bending, they'd be able to fold in on themselves without cracking. LG has also been tipped to be coming in to the next level in curved display tech - bent, then folded.

Samsung quietly unveils Galaxy Tab A in Russia

Samsung quietly unveils Galaxy Tab A in Russia

Samsung has announced a new line of tablets in Russia, without much fuss or fanfare and not even an official PR statement. It's almost as if it were ashamed to let it be known that it has a new family of Android tablets, and maybe it's for good reason. Like their Galaxy A smartphone namesakes, these two Galaxy Tab A tablets are pretty much mid-range mobile devices seemingly designed for a specific use case in mind. But, unlike those smartphones, these tablets are still completely plastic.
