Samsung ad flaunts screen superiority in Pixel 2 XL’s face

Samsung ad flaunts screen superiority in Pixel 2 XL’s face

A big part of advertisements is what you say and how you say it. Just as important, however, is when you say it. They say timing is everything, and that definitely applies when trying to catch the window of opportunity or when hitting their frenemies when they’re down. Google just experienced a pretty big setback over the display of the Pixel 2 XL, a P-OLED panel made by LG. Unsurprisingly, Samsung has just come out with a series of video cuts that boast about how great its screens are, making the unsaid implication that they’re definitely better than the Pixel 2 XL’s.

Galaxy S8 gets red tint fix, Samsung insists it’s not a bug

Galaxy S8 gets red tint fix, Samsung insists it’s not a bug

It's no explosive Galaxy Note 7, but one particular complaint with the Galaxy S8 is having users buzzing a bit. Not because it's a terribly deal-breaking "misfeature" but because of how Samsung is handling the problem. Or rather, how it is denying there is a problem in the first place. Nonetheless, yielding to outcry, Samsung has apparently started to roll out a software "fix" for the red tint issue on the Galaxy S8, which simply gives users more control over the colors on the screen.

Samsung insists Galaxy S8 red screen just needs a software fix

Samsung insists Galaxy S8 red screen just needs a software fix

The Galaxy S8 is already receiving its fair share of criticisms not even a week into its launch. But aside from the crippled initial Bixby launch, the most glaring, almost literally, complain has been around some screens. Some users have reported have reported seeing a red tinge on their screens, at least more than normal and definitely more than what is comfortable. While some market watchers theorize it might be a problem inherent in Samsung's Super AMOLED hardware, the Korean giant is insisting it's simply a software calibration problem. And to prove that, it will soon be releasing a software update "fixing" the issue.

Galaxy Note 7 specs leak from China

Galaxy Note 7 specs leak from China

The next Samsung smartphone with an S Pen has appeared in a new set of specs leaked from microblogger "I Ice". This new set of specifications seems to confirm several of the more important details we'd been told in the past, like a 5.7-inch display with Super AMOLED technology. That same display is tipped to have 2K resolution (that's 2560 x 1800, like the Galaxy Note 5), and will come in two iterations - one with an Edge, one without.

Samsung Galaxy S6 topples Galaxy Note 4 as OLED king

Samsung Galaxy S6 topples Galaxy Note 4 as OLED king

With Samsung's latest flagship fully unveiled and, if rumors are true, out in the market next month, it's time to compare and contrast its features with current and past smartphones. Naturally, DisplayMate is pouncing on the opportunity to test out the Galaxy S6's, as well as the Galaxy S6 edge's, screens to rank it against Samsung's own Galaxy Note 4 and, of course, the iPhone 6. Perhaps it isn't surprising that DisplayMate would conclude that the Galaxy S6 so far has the best OLED display in the market, but it isn't just because of the pixels.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge get official mention

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge get official mention

Samsung has seemingly confirmed that there will be two variants of the Galaxy S6 smartphone, with one - the Galaxy S6 Edge - expected to use a curved touchscreen. The new flagship will make its official debut at Samsung's pre-Mobile World Congress event in just a few weeks time, but two support pages for the Galaxy S6 (referred to by its SM-G920X product code) and the S6 Edge (as the SM-G925X) have already sprung up. Although neither has anything so useful as product shots or even diagrams of what the handsets will look like, it's apparent confirmation that the curved side-screen first used on the Galaxy Note Edge isn't quite ready for mass-market use.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge hands-on: Phablet meets curved OLED

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge hands-on: Phablet meets curved OLED

Samsung promised curved OLED in a big way, and the Galaxy Note Edge delivers, taking the new Note 4 and bending the edge of its display for an altogether unusual approach to phablets. Building on the curved Super AMOLED concept Samsung showed off last year, the Note Edge turns its right bezel into a touchscreen ticker. Question remains, is this a revolution in form-factor or just a gimmick?

Read on for the full SlashGear review.

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.

Today the next generation of Samsung smartphone technology has been revealed in the Samsung GALAXY S 4.

Super AMOLED HD Plus being tested in Tizen device

Galaxy Note for AT&T Review

Galaxy Note for AT&T Review

The Galaxy Note is no stranger to SlashGear: we reviewed the international version back in November 2011, finding it a curious - and in certain ways compelling - anomaly on the mobile landscape. Since then we've had plenty of experience with the oversized smartphone, most recently the arrival of AT&T's LTE version. Differences between the two are slight, so a full re-review isn't in order. However, read on for our latest thinking on this smartphone/tablet hybrid, where it stands up, and where - despite what Samsung insists - it falls flat on its 5.3-inch face.
