The 5 worst would-be iPhone ‘killers’ of all-time

As we mentioned earlier, Yahoo’s Jason Gilbert this week put together an entertaining article about all of the devices over the year’s that have been labeled “iPhone killers.” While none of the devices obviously “killed” the iPhone, some of them were respectable hits such as the original Motorola Droid and the Samsung Galaxy S II. Others, however, were complete and total bombs incapable of killing nothing except their manufacturer’s bottom lines. Below, we list the 5 worst would-be iPhone “killers” ever. More →

These charts show just how amazing the Galaxy S6’s display is

Needless to say, we’re big fans of the Galaxy S6’s display — in our preview, we said that we “have never seen anything quite so impressive on a mobile phone” before. However, this was just our early impressions after using the phone for one day and didn’t involve any actual testing to measure brightness or color accuracy. Thankfully for us, Anandtech has done a lot of this work and has confirmed our hunch: Namely, that the Galaxy S6’s display is a thing of wonder. More →

10 things the Galaxy S6 can do that the iPhone 6 can’t

By on March 27, 2015 at 10:33 AM.

Beginning in two weeks on April 10th, we’re in store for an epic battle of the sixes. Apple’s iPhone 6 burst onto the scene this past September and helped Apple rack up more profit in the holiday quarter than any other company has ever earned in a three-month period. iPhone 6 sales are still going strong according to estimates, but the phone will finally see some real competition next month when the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge hit store shelves.

All three of these phones are fantastic options, but there are a few key features on Samsung’s new handsets that could make iPhone 6 owners a bit jealous. In this post, you’ll find 10 of the most impressive things the Galaxy S6 can do that Apple’s latest iPhone can’t. More →

Not even HTC can tell the difference between the One M9 and M8

16 smartphones that ‘killed’ the iPhone

Ever since the iPhone became a bonafide hit, critics and tech pundits have been predicting that it was only a matter of time before Apple’s iconic smartphone would fall from grace. Whether it was Apple’s staunch refusal to support mobile flash or the company’s admittedly bizarre App Store rejection policies, there has never been a shortage of reasons tech pundits have clung to in order to bolster their claims that some competing smartphone would finally be the “iPhone killer” the world has been waiting for.
