Samsung reports fastest growth in three years following Apple’s big miss

Remember how Apple got a little crafty and bulked up its holiday quarter by playing around with the iPhone 6s launch? Well guess what happened when Samsung shifted its Galaxy S7 launch earlier in the year — you got it, a big performance boost in the first quarter. Hot off of Apple’s first ever quarterly decline in iPhone sales, Samsung reported first-quarter earnings on Thursday morning that showed a healthy 14% rise in profit. The company had strong Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge shipments to thank for the performance boost, which marked Samsung’s strongest profit growth in three years. More →

Samsung already has a fix for the worst thing about the iPhone 7

One of the worst features reportedly coming to the iPhone 7, according to some potential buyers, is the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. But while iPhone fans might be annoyed, other companies including headset makers, Intel, and more are prepping for a future without the old standard jack.

Even Samsung is working on a new type of headset: truly wireless headphones that come with their own storage. More →

New rumor claims the Galaxy Note 6 will have an absolutely monster battery

Are smartphone manufacturers finally taking complaints about battery life seriously? A new rumor posted by Dutch website GSM Helpdesk suggests that Samsung is. According to the website’s sources, Samsung is testing out a version of the Note 6 that has a giant 4,000mAh battery, which would be a step up from the Galaxy S7 edge’s 3,600 mAh battery. The website also claims the device will have a 5.8-inch display with a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels, along with 6GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

But let’s be honest: What’s really intriguing here is the giant battery. More →

Samsung really wants you to know that its latest iPhone copy doesn’t copy the iPhone

Pink Gold. Pink Gold, Pink Gold, Pink Gold. Pink. Gold.

Samsung on Wednesday announced that its flagship Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge smartphones now come in a brand new color. And it’s not Rose Gold. We promise. It’s Pink Gold. Pink! Just look at the images below and you’ll see that the color of this phone looks absolutely nothing like Rose Gold, which had only been seen limited-run smartphones until Apple added the color to its iPhone lineup.

New report outlines one way the iPhone 7 might not match the Galaxy S7

New report outlines one way the iPhone 7 might not match the Galaxy S7

One key component of the Galaxy S7 is Samsung’s ultra-fast universal flash storage (UFS) that’s able to offer better speeds than typical memory solutions used in smartphones and other computers. Based on Samsung’s advanced V-NAND flash memory chips, the UFS storage would significantly improve the iPhone’s performance. A new report says that although Samsung and Apple have inked a storage deal for the first time since the iPhone 5, Samsung’s UFS might not make it into the iPhone until next year. More →

The new HTC 10 is here, but the Galaxy S7 might still be the world’s best Android phone

Released a few weeks ago, the Galaxy S7 was lauded in reviews, which concluded the phone is Samsung’s best Android handset to date, and one of the best smartphones of the year – if not the best. We noted in our newly published review that the HTC 10 certainly gives Samsung’s flagships a run for their money, but a new report now says that the Galaxy S7 has already been named the best phone in various European markets, including the U.K., France, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands.

Galaxy Note 6 tipped to feature more memory than most smartphones

The Galaxy Note 6 isn’t due until the second half of the year, with some reports suggesting the phone will be unveiled early this summer, a couple of months sooner than the usual September launch timeframe for Galaxy Note devices. While some people might expect the Galaxy Note 6 to be just a variation of the Galaxy S7, one that comes with a stylus, a new report seems to indicate that might not be the case. In fact, it looks like the Galaxy Note 6 will have a unique chip, and support laptop-grade RAM. More →

Samsung is fixing the biggest problem with the Galaxy S7 edge

Samsung is fixing the biggest problem with the Galaxy S7 edge

The new Galaxy S7 edge is my favorite Android phone ever. In fact, it’s my favorite phone period in terms of hardware. In just a few short years, Samsung has gone from selling cheap-feeling plasticky flagship smartphones to building smartphone hardware that is absolutely best in class. Combine that with a gorgeous 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display in a shockingly compact form factor for a phablet, and you’ve got a recipe for success.

No phone is perfect though, and the S7 edge definitely ships along with some annoying issues. Thankfully though, a new update will fix the biggest complaint many users have with their new Samsung phablets. More →
