Samsung Galaxy Prevail II aims to change definition of “entry level”

With the wide spread of the Samsung device family resulting from the sustained success of the Samsung Galaxy smartphone line comes devices like the Galaxy Prevail II. This device is being offered for under $200 in the United States without a contract with the mobile data carrier Boost Mobile, and it's doing so with specifications that aren't half bad. While the LG-made Google Nexus 4 brought on the sub-$300 off-contract smartphone to the masses with decent hardware, here Samsung does something extremely similar.

Google Play Edition: Galaxy S 4 and HTC One Review

Google Play Edition: Galaxy S 4 and HTC One Review

They're the phones the most vocal minority demanded, pure Android on familiar Samsung and HTC hardware. They're also the phones the manufacturers refused to consider; HTC Sense and Samsung TouchWiz aren't merely window-dressing but core elements of the overall user-experience, so the argument went, and the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 wouldn't be the same without them.

Samsung’s Q2 2013 shows investors value analysis over record profit

Though Samsung's financial quarter announcements this week showed the company to be kicking up a storm (metaphorically, of course), with the Galaxy S 4 family of devices on the market today, shares fell internationally at word that analysis projections were not met. This sort of thing isn't unheard of, but to the lay person, it's not the easiest thing to make simple sense of. Why, if Samsung's quarterly profits are up 47% compared to this quarter last year, are investors spooked enough to kick down shares 4% in the Seoul stock market?

Samsung Galaxy Note III September unveil has the pocketable grow again

The next iteration of Samsung's Galaxy Note series has been one of the hottest topics in brand-specific forums over the past couple of weeks, with fans of the brand doubling up interest after a device-filled event held by the manufacturer brought on everything but. What we saw back then was glimpses of the machine - an implementation of the S-Pen here, another version of the Galaxy S 4 there, but the Galaxy Note III itself remained a mystery in a large way.
