The last word: Is the Galaxy S6 an iPhone clone?

Ahead of Sunday’s huge Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge unveiling at the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Spain, there was a lot of chatter focused on similarities between the Galaxy S6 we saw in leaks and Apple’s iPhone 6. Many people suggested that Samsung was getting ready to copy the iPhone once again with its new flagship phones — in some ways of course, that would be a good thing — and leaked images of handset prototypes certainly made it appear as though that would be the case.

Now that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are official and we have spent some time with both new models, it’s time to determine once and for all whether or not Samsung’s latest and greatest is the blatant iPhone ripoff many Apple fans have said it is. More →

Despite all the leaks and rumors leading up to Sunday’s unveiling of the new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, there didn’t seem to be quite as much hype as there has been in previous years. Perhaps the taste of letdown from 2014’s Galaxy S5 was still fresh in gadget fans’ mouths, but people just didn’t seem as interested as they were in the past.

Once people got an official look at Samsung’s next-generation flagship phones, however, all that changed. More →

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge hands-on: We finally found the Galaxy we’ve been looking for

Samsung just unveiled its two next-generation flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, and tech fans will spend most of the day reading the same thing over and over again: These are the best Samsung phones ever — nay, the best Android phones ever.

Here’s the thing, it’s not hyperbole. The South Korean giant that has become known for stellar flagship handsets that would be close to perfect if not for their annoying bloatware and cheap feeling plastic housings… just unveiled a pair of flagship handsets with barely any bloatware and no plastic to be found.

They are both truly fantastic smartphones. More →

Samsung Galaxy S6 hands-on: Meet the smartphone to beat in 2015

Samsung Galaxy S6 hands-on: Meet the smartphone to beat in 2015

What a difference a year can make. 2014’s Galaxy S5 was, to put it plainly, an utter disappointment. It wasn’t a bad phone by any stretch of the imagination, but it was hardly the exciting new Galaxy smartphone consumers were hoping for. Samsung’s Galaxy S5 was the definition of an iterative update, and it was uninspired and boring compared to the gorgeous HTC One M8 and other flagship phones like the second-generation Moto X.

With the Galaxy S6, Samsung made up for everything that was wrong with the S5… and then some. More →

AT&T is the first carrier to confirm it will sell the world’s sexiest new Android watch

Smartwatch fans have precious few choices when it comes to devices that don’t look like a terrible cross between a Swatch watch and a Casio wrist calculator.

You’re really going to want to tune in to BGR tomorrow…

The annual Mobile World Congress trade show has been a bit stale in recent years, since most big smartphone vendors have been hosting their own dedicated press conferences to make key announcements.

Watch House of Cards season 3 on Netflix right now

Netflix’s critically acclaimed series House of Cards is significant for a number of reasons. The show itself is a fan favorite that has won awards and been touted as the first Netflix show to truly rival productions from top networks like HBO. Beyond that, however, House of Cards was Netflix’s first big-budget self-produced show, and it let the world know that the company wasn’t just going to be a portal for dusty old movies and stale TV shows — it was going to be a major digital network.

And now, the hotly anticipated third season of House of Cards is finally here. More →
