Video: Samsung counters Apple’s heartfelt holiday ad with one of its own

Apple earlier this week released an inspirational holiday TV ad focusing more on the holiday spirit than on product placement, although the spot is obviously intended mainly to sell Apple devices.

More signs of trouble for Samsung: It’s the only top phone vendor with declining sales

Now, as expected, Samsung is showing a significant decline in another key measure of success for smartphone makers: Handset shipments. More →

Big leak reveals everything you need to know about two unannounced Samsung phones

Samsung already began a huge shakeup in its mobile division by firing dozens of executives, but it remains to be seen how the company’s strategy will change in 2015 and beyond. In the meantime, two of the first new Android Samsung is set to launch in 2015 have just been detailed in a big new leak. More →
