IDC: as Apple surges, Samsung falls

Big changes are in the wings this year as IDC reports big movements in smartphone shipments for the fourth quarter of last year. In their report of the last three months of 2014, Samsung's year-over-year change was in the negative - the only company in the negative in the top five companies on IDC's chart. On the other hand, Samsung does remain in the top spot for smartphone shipments worldwide, followed closely by Apple. Apple appears to be closing in on Samsung in a big way, with less than a point difference in worldwide smartphone shipments.

Galaxy S6 case sparks interest, but it’s probably nonsense

At MWC this year, we’re likely going to get our hands on the Galaxy S6 from Samsung. While rumors have been circulating about the new flagship from Samsung, we’ve not seen much that gives us a hint at anything official. A case has been spotted on amazon, which points to some aesthetic changes Samsung could be making. Most notably, the rear camera ensemble is changed, with the flash sitting to the side of the camera, not underneath like the Galaxy S5. Still, something is really off, here. Can this listing be trusted?

Leaked email hints at Samsung’s Lollipop upgrade plan

Leaked email hints at Samsung’s Lollipop upgrade plan

Most Android users don’t have a Nexus device, and Motorola is still not a preeminent OEM. That means most people don’t see Android updates when they’re launched, and have to wait a period of time before the manufacturer of their phone (and possibly carrier) get it together and update their handset. Plenty of reasons for the delay exist, and Google would rather we have their newest Android quickly, but most are left wanting. A leaked email suggests Samsung is priming their Experience Shop associates for Lollipop to hit in January.

Galaxy S6 details: turning Samsung’s mobile fortunes

Galaxy S6 details: turning Samsung’s mobile fortunes

If today's report on the sales of the Galaxy S5 are true, Samsung's next release will need to be a doozy. We previously had a chat on what Samsung was potentially getting into with the Galaxy S6 - how they may be working on a "Project Zero", a reboot of the entire series, a re-imagining of the smartphone monster they've created. Now with the Galaxy S5 said to have been selling 40% less than its predecessor, there's no better time for Samsung to bring the heat.

Galaxy S6 details begin to flow: here be (Snap)dragons

The Samsung Galaxy S6 has been tapped as a turnaround point for the company. They've reached a point where their line of smartphones is popular, but not quite popular enough that they don't need to shake up the industry with a new lead - either an entirely new physical design or something late-breaking under the hood. What you'll find with the Samsung Galaxy S6 isn't another one in a line of devices that look like the design language born of the Galaxy S III. Instead you'll find Samsung bringing Project Zero forward with a new face AND mind.

Galaxy S6 Rebirth: details are the devil for Samsung

Galaxy S6 Rebirth: details are the devil for Samsung

With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge in Germany comes proof that Samsung needs to do something BRAND NEW with their Galaxy S lineup. Earlier this year - soon after the Galaxy Note Edge was announced - Samsung announced they'd be bringing the Note Edge to Germany. On one condition: they'd have to vote on it. More than 120,000 votes later and Samsung seems pleased - the device will indeed be heading for Deutschland in a single, full release this Autumn. But what's this got to do with the Galaxy S6?
