New York Times pits Galaxy S5 against iPhone 5s, says competition isn’t even close

By on April 21, 2014 at 10:16 AM.

Last week, we took an in-depth look at Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 smartphone to see how it compared with the HTC One (M8). While the competition was certainly intense, in the end we called HTC’s new flagship phone the best Android smartphone in the world. In terms of sales, however, the M8 will never compete with the Galaxy S5. Even HTC knows that. Apple’s flagship iPhone 5s is the only smartphone that sits at the top of the food chain alongside the Galaxy S5 when it comes to sales, and The New York Times recently pitted these two leading smartphones against each other to see which one should be called the best smartphone in the world.

Interestingly, the newspaper found that the competition wasn’t even close. More →

Samsung really, really wants to show you that it’s innovative

If there’s one thing in the world that is guaranteed to drive Samsung crazy, it’s alleging that the company isn’t innovative. And now Samsung is going yet another step in its quest to shed its copycat image by opening up a new “Samsung Innovation Museum” at its Samsung Digital City complex in Suwon, Korea that shows us all of the major innovations of the last couple of centuries, from the invention of the lightbulb to Samsung’s innovations in display technologies.

Verizon to finally roll out KitKat for the Galaxy S4 on May 2nd

It’s taken far too long, but it looks like an update to the latest version of Android on Verizon’s Galaxy S4 is finally in sight. Android Geeks obtained a leaked document from one of its readers which points to May 2nd as the launch date for Android 4.4.2 KitKat on the S4, around two months after the roll out began for AT&T and Sprint subscribers. Google has made it clear that the inexplicable update delays will be handled more efficiently in the future, but for now, Verizon customers are dependent on internal leaks to learn about software updates.

Samsung Milk Music Premium Service

Samsung’s Milk Music streaming service will add premium subscriptions

Samsung’s Milk Music streaming service will add premium subscriptions

Samsung launched Milk Music last month seemingly out of nowhere, a music streaming service to compete with Pandora, Spotify, Beats Music and countless others already on the market. The draw of Milk Music appeared to be its lack of subscription fees, but an infographic posted on the Samsung Tomorrow blog reveals that the ad-free basic service was only a limited time offer, and a $3.99/month premium service is coming soon. Powered by Slacker, Milk Music already houses more than 13,000,000 songs on its 200+ stations, so if you’re a Samsung device owners looking for a slick alternative to the established services, the app is worth downloading while the basic service is still ad-free. The infographic can be found below. More →

HTC Camera Selfie Market

HTC has a secret weapon for taking on Samsung, and it’s not what you think

HTC has a secret weapon for taking on Samsung, and it’s not what you think

No matter how positive the reviews are for its products, HTC can’t seem to break out from behind the shadow of Samsung. Without a veritable army of devices flooding store shelves, it’s difficult for any phone maker to make an impact in the Android smartphone market. But HTC believes that by closing the gap on dedicated cameras, it can attract an even wider audience while trumping the competition. More →

Apple Maps Loch Ness Monster

Finally, Apple Maps is good for something

Finally, Apple Maps is good for something

Sure, Apple Maps might send you into a death trap in the Australian outback or onto an airport runway, but it does do things that other mapping services don’t, such as being able to find imaginary monsters. AppleInsider points out that hunters of the Loch Ness Monster claim that they found an image of the mythical beast on a satellite image provided by Apple’s iOS Maps, which was something that they didn’t find when they tried looking for it on Google Maps.

Here are 10 hidden Galaxy S5 features you should check out right now

Unlike in previous years, Samsung announced the Galaxy S5 at MWC 2014 rather than hosting its own event later in spring. And unlike in previous years, the company only highlighted certain new features of the handset during the event – probably the fresh partnership with Google played a role in that – instead of showing all the new software tricks it has devised for the new flagship.

New report says sub-$100 Google Nexus smartphone is coming

Google may be working on a new kind of Nexus device that could be even more affordable than its predecessors, a new report from Asia says. However, the device won’t be a high-end model like the others, but rather an entry- to mid-range device that would sell for under $100, thus being significantly more affordable than any previous Nexus handsets.

iPhone 5s Lowest Price $99

You can now get the iPhone 5s for just $99 on contract

You can now get the iPhone 5s for just $99 on contract

The launch of the iPhone 6 is still months away but that doesn’t mean you can’t get some incredible deals on the iPhone 5s. Case in point: MacRumors points out that RadioShack is now selling the iPhone 5s for just $99 with a two-year contract from Verizon, AT&T or Sprint, which happens to be one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen for Apple’s latest flagship phone. The new price for the 5s at RadioShack is the same on-contract price that Apple originally charged for the iPhone 5c, so now it looks like interested buyers now have even less reason to pick up a 5c than they did before. What makes this deal even better is that MacRumors says that you can get $100 off the iPhone 5s at RadioShack if you trade in your iPhone 4s, which means that you can basically get the device for free as long as you’re willing to swallow a two-year service agreement.
