Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: Phablet Refocused

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: Phablet Refocused

Samsung can’t afford to stumble with the Galaxy Note 4. The fourth-gen phablet arrives as Samsung wakes up to a new, and not especially rewarding, phase in its mobile life: the discovery that throwing a hundred designs at the market and hoping at least some of them stick no longer has the same sales success as it once did. At a time so fiercely competitive, Samsung can’t count on simply having originally created the Note 4’s segment to commend this latest model. It needs to deliver as much in the hand as its specifications promise to on the page.

Samsung will create special ‘services’ for Android Wear

Android Wear has three devices right now: The Moto 360, the LG G Watch, and Samsung Gear Live. Two of those, the G Watch and Moto 360, have been working with Android Wear as reference devices. The Gear Live is a “late” comer to Android Wear, and Samsung will duplicate their Android smartphone and tablet efforts on the wearable, it seems.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Review

Samsung Galaxy S5 Review

Samsung cannot be ignored, and the importance of the Galaxy S5 cannot be overlooked. New bearer of the crown of “best-known Android smartphone” it’s a chance not only for Samsung to make money, but to demonstrate what cleverness it can bake into a flagship device. Samsung’s approach to innovation has been more scattershot than focused, however, and with each generation of Galaxy there’s been equally as many needless bells & whistles as there have been legitimately useful additions.

HTC One’s MoDaCo.SWITCH coming to Galaxy S 4 as well: change-up!

HTC One’s MoDaCo.SWITCH coming to Galaxy S 4 as well: change-up!

The original HTC One works with HTC's own "Sense" user interface, while the Google Play edition works with Googles' - MoDaCo.SWITCH allows you to choose which of the two you like better at any given time. This system is a hack, at heart, requiring that you root your device before you allow yourself the freedom to choose either the HTC Sense or Android Jelly Bean Vanilla iteration at the tap of a button (and a few seconds' wait). What you get, though, is a completely unique set of controls.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 processor confirmed as Clover Trail+ with LTE abilities

This week the folks at Samsung delivered news of two new Galaxy Tab 3 devices, each of them bringing with them the next generation of GALAXY S 4 aesthetics and wireless abilities. The 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 3 was delivered with a note that it'd be bringing a dual-core Intel processor inside, but only in a very general way - certainly not what Android addicts were looking for in their detail journals. Today though, Intel has come to the rescue with specifics.
