Samsung to launch iPad-like mid-range Galaxy Tab A May 1

Samsung has a plethora of tablets of varying sizes and capacities and now it is adding one more to the lineup , ready to land in the US next week. For all intents and purposes, the Galaxy Tab A line, of which there are two (three if you separately count the one with an S-Pen), is a rather mediocre offerings on par with the likes of the Galaxy Tab 4 family. One crucial difference, however, is in the size and aspect ratio of the two, sporting the same 4:3 design the the iPads tout.

Samsung Galaxy S6 replacement battery cost detailed

The Samsung Galaxy S6 has an integrated battery, but it can be replaced (not without some difficulty, however). Some have questioned how much that replacement battery will cost, and now Samsung has confirmed the pricing: a replacement S6 battery will cost $45 USD, and the replacement of said battery can be done in a single business day, meaning users won't have to be separated from their smartphone for too long.

Uber, Samsung bring free ride to S6, S6 edge owners

How’s this for synergy? Uber and Samsung are partnering to bring Galaxy S6 and S6 edge owners in the United States free rides. In the Galaxy Gifts widget on the two new flagships from Samsung, owners will see an Uber certificate for a free ride (valued up to $25). To take advantage, Galaxy S6 or S6 edge owners will also need the Uber app installed on their new smartphone. That free ride is only for new Uber users, so if you’ve already had the pleasure of renting space in someone’s car, you’re out of luck.

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.

The Galaxy S6 is here, and Samsung has big, big hopes for it

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.
