Samsung GALAXY S 4 vs HTC One

Now that the Samsung GALAXY S 4 has been revealed officially and the HTC One is out in reviewers' hands, it's time to do the first big battle royal between the two. With the GALAXY S 4 you've got Samsung's continuation of a legacy with a device that looks rather similar to the Samsung Galaxy S III, not to mention the Galaxy Note devices that've been revealed in the time since the smartphone's last iteration's reveal. With the HTC One we've got what appears to be more of an utter re-vamp of the company's wares from top to bottom - which approach suits you best?

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Review

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Review

With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 with Verizon's 4G LTE data coverage, both companies put forth their best. With Verizon it's the 4G LTE you know and love, and with Samsung it's their largest "Note" device to date, effectively replacing the standard tablet with one that's got its own S-Pen for futuristic note-taking and artwork galore. This isn't the first time the Galaxy Note 10.1 has been available in the United States, but it certainly is the first time it's been pushed with such vigor.

Samsung REX series aims for Nokia’s pie with “smart feature phones”

This week the folks at Samsung have revealed the REX series, what they're calling "smart feature phones" working with the company's own "TouchWiz" user interface - but this time without Android underneath. Each Samsung smartphone to have been released over the past several years either works with Samsung's TouchWiz UI or has been a rather unique addition to the family - the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was one of these, working with a Google-only version of Android per the "Nexus" brand's legacy. Now with a series of Java-based OS-running Smart Feature Phones, Samsung is ready to take on the world - and specifically Nokia's Asha lineup.

Samsung Galaxy Note II (T-Mobile) Review

Samsung Galaxy Note II (T-Mobile) Review

In the Samsung Galaxy Note II we've got an experience like no other - similar to the first Galaxy Note with its massive display and S-Pen action, but here with processing power and software just great enough to carve for itself a unique place in the smart device universe. The T-Mobile version of this device is so very similar to the rest of the carrier editions here in the USA that it's almost foolish to review it more than once - the differences have been sliced down to the apps included inside, Samsung once again flexing their brand power to keep the device near-identical across all carrier borders. This device is to the Galaxy Note line what the Galaxy S III was to the Galaxy S line, continuing very much with Samsung's coming-of-age - very wise indeed.
