Expert analysis determines if Galaxy S7 has the world’s best display

The Galaxy S7 was just announced and it’s already impressing Android fans all over the world. The handset is one of the best, if not the best high-end device announced during Barcelona’s mobile event this year, and that’s abundantly clear from the moment you pick one up to try it for the first time. Rather than creating a new design, Samsung stuck with what worked for the Galaxy S6 and made several improvements under the hood that fans will immediately notice and appreciate.

While the first Galaxy S7 reviews have yet to arrive, a display expert has already managed to get his hands on the phone and has analyzed it in order to determine whether or not Samsung’s flagships still have the world’s best display. More →

Samsung’s best smartphone finally gets Google’s best Android OS

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are the best Android phones the company made to date, yet they’re not flawless. Some people criticize the absence of a microSD slot or the non-removable battery, but the phones’ most important issue is that they’re no longer on Google’s latest, and best, Android version.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow was released more than three months ago to Nexus devices, and Samsung hasn’t been quick to adopt it. However, after various beta tests and Android 6.0 leaks, Samsung is finally ready to release the highly anticipated update for the two handsets. More →

The only way to buy Samsung’s Galaxy S6

Last year’s Galaxy S6 smartphone is still one of the best phones on the market, and it will be for quite some time.

DxOMark says iPhone 6s camera is inferior to top Android phones

The new iPhone 6s features cameras that are better than anything Apple has released before.

Many professional photographers have praised the iPhone 6s, some even comparing it to dedicated camera in certain tests.

However, DxOMark put the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus through its rigorous testing, and the site has determined that the phone’s camera is inferior to its top Android rivals. More →

iPhone 6s Plus camera goes head-to-head against iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 in outdoors shootout

iPhone 6s Plus camera goes head-to-head against iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 in outdoors shootout

The iPhone 6s happens to be the best “S” upgrade in Apple’s history, as it brings several significant improvements and new features. One of the things Apple changed for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is the camera technology.

Both devices have cameras with more megapixels, so the expectations on the camera performance front are rather high. That goes especially for the iPhone 6s Plus, which is the better of the two, as it has one critical extra camera feature compared to the iPhone 6s: Optical image stabilization (OIS) for video and photos.

So how does the new Apple phablet fare against the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 in photo tests? There’s an outdoors shootout comparison to answer that. More →

Samsung will pay you up to $220 to ditch your iPhone for a Galaxy S6 or Note 5

Don’t look now, but Samsung is really doing its best to take your money, even if that means having to pay you money to do it. Rather than further lowering the price of the Samsung Galaxy S6 or Galaxy Note 5, Samsung now says it’ll pay your phone installments through 2016. Unsurprisingly, you’ll get more money if you’re willing to ditch the iPhone in favor of a new Galaxy model. More →
