Let’s be clear: Benchmark results do not prove definitively that one device runs better than another, particularly since we know that OEMs have tried to optimize their devices to produce stronger results. That said, two new videos flagged by Android Police show that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge really do appear to have eye-popping benchmark scores, at least in the versions being displayed at Mobile World Congress right now.

A few days before MWC 2015 kicked off, LG unveiled not one but two interesting wearable devices, and even though they share the same name, they’re actually quite different. The LG Watch Urbane LTE model that I saw earlier is a SIM-enabled smartphone on your wrist, a device that’s pretty bulky, even though it looks good and you could easily get used to that big metallic piece of technology on your hand.
We’re only in day 1 of the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain, but it looks as though Samsung has already stolen the show. Samsung and HTC both announced stunning new flagship smartphones during separate press conferences on Sunday, but one succeeded in reinventing itself while the other showed off an iterative update that was decidedly far less exciting.
Where Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 and of the Galaxy S6 edge are concerned, Samsung will really only have one competitor when it comes to flagship smartphone sales, and that’s the iPhone 6; simply put, no other company can afford to go up against Samsung’s multi-billion dollar marketing and advertising budget.

The hype and speculation surrounding Apple’s September Apple Watch event was unprecedented, understandably so given Apple’s track record of driving innovation in new product categories. What made the event all the more exciting is that Apple was successfully able to keep important details of the device completely under wraps.
In a broad sense, sure, we knew Apple was likely to introduce a wearable device of some sort. But key details surrounding the device’s capabilities, and even what the design looked like, remained unknown until Tim Cook officially walked up on stage and unveiled the Apple Watch for the first time.
Samsung finally took the wraps off of its next-generation flagship smartphones on Sunday during the company’s big Mobile World Congress press conference in Barcelona, Spain. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge represent a complete reimagining of Samsung’s smartphone lineup, and in our hands-on previews of the Galaxy S6 and of the Galaxy S6 edge, we have had almost nothing but good things to say about them.
Mobile World Congress is clearly the talk of the town this week, and it started off with a bang as Samsung unveiled its new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones after HTC took the wraps off the sleek new HTC One M9. While there is certainly plenty of news coming out of Barcelona on Monday as well, we can still stop for a moment to enjoy some great paid iPhone and iPad apps that are available for free for a limited time.
We have seven nifty apps on today’s list, and these sales could end at any time so be sure to hurry up and grab anything that looks appealing. More →
Sunday was easily one of the biggest days of 2015 for smartphone fans around the world, who watched along as three of the most impressive phones that have ever been created were unveiled at the annual Mobile World Congress trade show. HTC was up first, and the company showed off its next-generation HTC One M9 flagship phone, a sleek and elegant handset that continues HTC’s long tradition of class leading design. Then Samsung’s event kicked off, and the company unveiled its stunning new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones.
Now that all three of these great new Android phones are official, it’s time to run through a quick comparison and find out how they stack up against each other. More →
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 →
A few days before the MWC 2015 madness started, LG surprised smartwatch fans by announcing a one of the best-looking smartwatches yet, at least until Huawei’s watch was unveiled: the LG Watch Urbane and its SIM-card carrying cohort, the LG Watch Urbane LTE. After taking the later for a brief stroll at MWC, I can say that it looks and feels good on the wrist, but it’s also a little bulky. Not to mention the fact that it runs on LG’s “Wearable Platform,” which might take some adjusting to. More →
The annual Mobile World Congress trade show didn’t officially start until today, but there is no question that Samsung stole the show on Sunday. The company’s new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones represent a bold new era at Samsung, one where the company is finally willing to build a smartphone out of premium materials that better compliment its cutting-edge specs.
Among the improvements in Samsung’s new flagship phones is an impressive new camera that could be the best smartphone camera in the world when it launches. And now, we have our first official samples of photos captured with the Galaxy S6’s camera. More →
