Samsung rumored to have two Tizen phones in the works

The initial, and to be honest, quite unexpected success of Samsung's first Tizen smartphone inspired some speculation that the OEM would immediately follow up the Samsung Z1 with a successor. Two months have passed with nary a word, perhaps overshadowed by the Galaxy S6 and its sibling. Now, however, the rumors are back and this time, word is that there might actually be two Tizen devices on the way, one that is a slight upgrade and another one with more formidable specs.

Galaxy S6 iFixit teardown fares only slightly better

Galaxy S6 iFixit teardown fares only slightly better

Very few will probably deny that the new Samsung Galaxy flagships are beautiful, but that beauty came with hidden costs. As exposed last week, the Galaxy S6 edge was a tough nut to crack, figuratively of course, when it came to repairing the smartphone with the fancy dual curved edge screen. Now it's the main flagship's turn. The Galaxy S6 is practically similar to the Galaxy S6 edge, but with less gimmicks inside. Will that slight difference be enough to give it a higher repairability score? Apparently yes, but only so slightly.

Debunked: “Galaxy S6 Edge more costly to make, cheaper to buy than iPhone”

The differences are slight - or they might seem slight to the untrained eye - but the Galaxy S6 Edge's cost to Samsung is higher than the average phone. In fact, according to a study being published by IHS today, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge's estimated cost to build is higher than an equivalent* iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, but costs less for a consumer to buy outright on the market today. *Equivalent, that is to say, if you consider what they present to be the same.

The Galaxy S6 Edge battery bump: hands-on with Mophie’s newest Juice Pack

This is the Mophie Juice Pack for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. While it might seem rather similar to the same device for the Galaxy S6 (without edge), this version is ever-so-slightly different, made perfect for the unique shape of this device. Battery woes haven't been reported as massively significant in reviews of the device thus far - but with an extra-wide screen, users will end up aiming for battery solutions like these one way or the other. Mophie has teamed with Samsung to push battery life to the masses as fast as possible.

US carriers are stripping down the Galaxy S6 even further

US carriers are stripping down the Galaxy S6 even further

Samsung's phones are notorious for the amount of bloatware they come with, exacerbated by carriers' own bloatware on top. For this round, however, Samsung was noted to have put the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge on a software diet. Well, as much as it can concede. It still has some, of course, but not exactly as bad as before. US carriers seem to also be getting into the rhythm. It's not exactly surprising to hear that carriers are modifying their versions of the Galaxy S6, but some of the changes are rather puzzling at times.

It's an expensive day if you're a tech addict, with Samsung's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge joining other gadget luminaries like the Apple Watch and new MacBook Retina on store shelves. Sales of the Android smartphone and its curved screen sibling kicked off online in the early hours of this morning across four markets - the US, UK, France, and Germany - with many more on the roadmap, while in-store availability with carriers starts today, too. However, not everyone is going to go home happy.

Samsung does its own drop tests for Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge

Since users seem to be having a hell of a time taking smartphone endurance tests into their own hands lately, Samsung saw it fit to step in and give it's own "scientific" spin to the torture. After all, who better to know how to properly test a device for real world disasters than the one who made it, right? Regardless of your opinion or belief in such manufacturer-advertised stress tests, Samsung is coming out with a video of its own drop tests for its two flagships. Unsurprisingly, they survived with nary a scratch.
