Galaxy Tab S7+ still lags behind the iPad Pro in these ways

Galaxy Tab S7+ still lags behind the iPad Pro in these ways

For the longest time, Samsung has been accused of being an Apple copycat. In fact, there was a years-long court case revolving exactly around that. It's not a one-way street, though, and there are definitely ways in which Samsung paved the road that Apple would later tread. Large screens and the S Pen immediately come to mind, with something like the iPad Pro combining both in the most extreme way. Unfortunately, Apple has since surpassed Samsung and the latter's newest Galaxy Tab S7+, while an impressive upgrade, still fails to regain its lost ground.

Galaxy Tab S7 gets exclusive Clip Studio Paint for Android

Galaxy Tab S7 gets exclusive Clip Studio Paint for Android

Android has long had devices with active styluses, mostly from Samsung but also from Huawei and, just recently, even LG. Unfortunately, a vicious cycle has pretty much left it lacking in terms of creativity apps, especially when compared with the latecomer iPad Pros. It seems that Samsung at least is giving it a stronger push with the latest Galaxy Tab S7 and the gigantic Galaxy Tab S7+, providing the slates with one of the most sought-after drawing apps in the market that isn't Adobe Photoshop.

Samsung speaks on plastic Note 20, Fold 2 S Pen and Android update promise

Samsung had a busy day, what with two new smartphones, a foldable phone, two tablets, a pair of earbuds, and a smartwatch, but as is often the case it's the little details that warrant the most scrutiny. Whether it's how long you can expect fresh Android for your old Galaxy, what sort of materials are warranted on a thousand-dollar Note 20, or why a fan-favorite feature is missing on the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Samsung had a mix of answers and evasions.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ offer 5G in iPad Pro rivals

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ offer 5G in iPad Pro rivals

Samsung wants a slice of Apple's iPad Pro market, and the laptop-replacing Android tablets it aims to bite that off with are the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+. Debuting a crisper, sleeker design than their predecessors, they're designed to work with or without a keyboard cover accessory, and support Samsung's latest S Pen, while optional integrated 5G helps differentiate them from the iPad Pro.

iPads lead the tablet renaissance amidst the pandemic

iPads lead the tablet renaissance amidst the pandemic

Not too long ago, many pundits have declared tablets to be dead. Not only did they fail to account for the unwavering strength of Apple's iPads, especially the new breed of iPad Pros, they also never saw the COVID-19 coronavirus coming. Both factors have now contributed to a surge in tablet shipments across the world in the second quarter of the year, with the iPads leading the fray and almost giving credence to Apple's hype about these slates being the next computers.

Samsung Unpacked 2020 trailer teases new devices and BTS

Samsung Unpacked 2020 is only a couple of days away, but that won't dissuade Samsung from teasing and previewing the heck out of what's expected to be its big Galaxy Note 20 launch. We're already readying ourselves for a five device flood on August 5, as per Samsung's own mobile division chief, but now the company is wheeling in some celebrities too.

Surface Neo is officially not coming this holiday

Surface Neo is officially not coming this holiday

If the rumors are correct, the Android-powered Surface Duo might finally be arriving on August 24. Initially slated for "late 2020" and then to July, Microsoft may finally be launching one of two incarnations of the stillborn Microsoft Courier device. For some, however, the phone-like Surface Duo is merely a shadow of that dream, with the Surface Neo and its Windows 10X offering a closer approximation. Unfortunately, we won't be able to compare and contrast those two this year and, if other whispers are to be believed, not even next year.

Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ leak leaves nothing to the imagination

Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ leak leaves nothing to the imagination

This year's batch of Galaxy devices might be some of Samsung's worst kept secrets but the manufacturer doesn't seem to mind. Not only does it actually help drive up buzz and hype, the leaks also frame consumers' expectations. When it comes to the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+, there will definitely be mixed expectations on what could be Samsung's most ambitious grab at the tablet market, and it won't exactly be because of some revolutionary new feature or technologies.

Galaxy Tab S7 leak points to a disappointing spec

Galaxy Tab S7 leak points to a disappointing spec

In about two weeks, we'll finally get to see Samsung's grand collection of high-end mobile devices for the second half of the year. "High-end" is, of course, relative and not all of those might seem worthy of the label. We've already heard some disheartening news about the non-Ultra Galaxy Note 20 and it seems that Samsung is adopting that same strategy with its next premium tablet. If this latest leak is on the mark, it will announce a Galaxy Tab S7+ and what may be a Galaxy Tab S7 Lite.

Galaxy Z Fold 2 vs Surface Duo: who will fold and who will win

Galaxy Z Fold 2 vs Surface Duo: who will fold and who will win

The foldable phone dream, seeded by Samsung a few years ago, didn't seem to have generated the market reception its proponents may have hoped for. Partly due to limited availability and accessibility and partly due to timing, foldable phones have yet to take root in consumers' hearts and retail shelves. That hasn't stopped manufacturers from trying and two, in particular, will be taking almost opposite spins on the idea. Samsung's second Galaxy Fold, believed to be rebranded as the Galaxy Z Fold 2, promises a refinement of the original dream but the Microsoft Surface Duo offers a more practical compromise. Which of the two, then, is more likely to take the market by storm? We compare the two to get a glimpse of the probable future.

Kano PC is a DIY, repairable 2-in-1 Windows laptop for kids

The world is undergoing a rather drastic change, for better or worse, and often for worse. Beyond just the economy and society, education is being forced to examine its processes and systems, focusing on the essentials that could be done at home and with computers. That, in turn, has also forced many schools and families to invest in computers even for the wee ones, computers that often get thrown out for even the simplest hardware problem. Just in the nick of time, Kano and Microsoft have come out with the Kano PC, designed to be fun, educational, usable, and last the test of time and accidents at home or in school.
