Samsung Gear Fit: 5 things we love (and one we hate)

Samsung's Gear Fit and Galaxy S5 are here, promising a brace of new features and a reboot to the South Korean company's wearables strategy.

Samsung Galaxy S5 is phone display king say testers

Samsung Galaxy S5 is phone display king say testers

Samsung's Galaxy S5 may have hardly reached user's hands, but it's already being called the best smartphone display not only of this current generation of phones, but of handsets ever released. While the Galaxy S5's 5.1-inch OLED screen is slightly larger than the outgoing Galaxy S4, it's not just scale that has changed, according to researchers at DisplayMate.

Samsung Gear Fit hands-on: Curved AMOLED health wearable

Let's be blunt: the Samsung Gear Fit looks just how we were hoping the original Galaxy Gear would in September last year, a sinuous strip of bright, curved OLED for your wrist.

Read on for some first-impressions.

LG: Curved smartphones like G Flex 40% of market by 2018

Flexible smartphones will dominate 40-percent of the smartphone market by 2018, LG predicts, billing the LG G Flex with its curved 6-inch AMOLED display as the first of a new breed of handsets. "We got bored of flat" LG's Dr Ramchan Woo, head of mobile product planning, said of the motivation behind the G Flex, which takes the DNA of handsets like the G Pro and G2, but shapes the screen to better suit the curvature of your face and how your hands naturally hold "phablet" form-factors.

Samsung’s Galaxy Round is gimmicky not geekery

Samsung’s Galaxy Round is gimmicky not geekery

I love odd gadgets and weird technology. I like manufacturers that think at right-angles when it comes to designs and functionality. Yet Samsung's newly announced Galaxy Round, the Android smartphone with a curved AMOLED display like a techie taco, for all its new screen technology, leaves me cold. "Samsung's Galaxy Round is the epitome of in-fighting with LG" I tweeted last night. ""We got there first" and never mind if "there" is pointless." That prompted a discussion on how I could be enthusiastic about Samsung's Galaxy Gear, also derided by many in recent weeks, but not about the South Korean company's other more unusual designs. For me, it comes down to innovation versus excess.
