Samsung Galaxy S6 hands-on: Meet the smartphone to beat in 2015

Samsung Galaxy S6 hands-on: Meet the smartphone to beat in 2015

By about 3 hours ago.

What a difference a year can make. 2014’s Galaxy S5 was, to put it plainly, an utter disappointment. It wasn’t a bad phone by any stretch of the imagination, but it was hardly the exciting new Galaxy smartphone consumers were hoping for. Samsung’s Galaxy S5 was the definition of an iterative update, and it was uninspired and boring compared to the gorgeous HTC One M8 and other flagship phones like the second-generation Moto X.

With the Galaxy S6, Samsung made up for everything that was wrong with the S5… and then some. More →

One down, one to go! There’s a whole lot going on today ahead of the official kickoff of Mobile World Congress 2015, but there are clearly two main highlights that are generating the most buzz. The show actually doesn’t open until tomorrow, though many companies are making their announcements today in an effort to get a jump on things. The biggest news so far has come from HTC, which unveiled its new HTC One M9 and its first wearable device, the HTC Grip, earlier on Sunday.

Now, it’s Samsung’s turn to make waves as the company unveils its next-generation flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. More →

You can already pretend you have a Galaxy S6 by downloading these official apps

Galaxy S6 Software Features: Themes Center

There’s one new Galaxy S6 feature you don’t really need, but you’ll want it anyway

There’s one new Galaxy S6 feature you don’t really need, but you’ll want it anyway

Yes, almost everything about the Galaxy S6 has apparently leaked already, but there are still things that weren’t included in recent reports. One of them is a software feature that you don’t really need on the phone, but one that could turn out to be very helpful for people who want to make the Galaxy S6 their own without worrying too much about getting third-party customization tools.

Apple Virtual Reality Headset

And now, it’s Apple’s turn to copy Samsung

And now, it’s Apple’s turn to copy Samsung

The Gear VR is probably the greatest thing Samsung has created in a long time. The simple but well-made virtual reality headset blows minds young and old. I have personally shown it to a number of people, and so far I have yet to come across anyone whose jaw didn’t drop. It’s awesome.

And it looks like Samsung’s biggest competitor may be getting ready to launch a rival device. More →

Major leak from Sprint gives us our clearest look yet at the Galaxy S6

Samsung is about to announce two similar but distinct sixth-generation Galaxy S versions, including the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, but the devices have already been thoroughly leaked. Most details about the two handsets, including design, hardware and software features have seemingly been revealed in many reports, but the leaks are far from over.

In fact, Sprint just gave us the biggest Galaxy S6 leak so far. More →

Galaxy S6 Vs. iPhone 6

This can’t be real: Leaked Galaxy S6 earbuds look like blatant Apple EarPod ripoffs

This can’t be real: Leaked Galaxy S6 earbuds look like blatant Apple EarPod ripoffs

It’s still much too soon to pass any final judgements and call Samsung’s upcoming new Galaxy S6 handset an iPhone ripoff. Yes, some of the evidence thus far has been fairly damning — this leaked Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 photo comparison lets you be the judge — but everything is just a rumor until Samsung makes it official during its press conference on Sunday.

After plenty of evidence has piled up to suggest that Samsung took some pretty obvious inspiration from Apple’s iPhone 5 and iPhone 6, a new leak suggests that Samsung’s tendency to borrow from Apple may have just crossed over from flattering to just plain sad. More →

Galaxy S6 already dominates MWC… and the show hasn’t even started

Samsung has already released a plethora of Galaxy S6 teaser videos before its March 1st event gets underway, while at the same time hinting at future features of the phone in official blog posts describing some of the technologies it uses for top devices. The company has also started building up anticipation for the handset in the U.S. with help of three of the top four carriers, including AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.

Unsurprisingly, Samsung has also started putting up Galaxy S6 signage — lots of it— in Barcelona, Spain, with several days to go until the phone is officially announced. More →

In light of falling profits, Samsung is freezing wages for all of its employees in South Korea, Reuters reported on Thursday. This is the first time the company has elected to freeze wages since the international financial crisis in 2009, which goes to show just how seriously Samsung is taking this recent downturn. More →

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 vs. HTC One M9: How Samsung might leave rivals in the dust

Samsung will soon unveil two Galaxy S6 versions, hardly secrets for anyone who’s been closely following the numerous Galaxy S6 leaks that hit the web in the past few months, and there are plenty of reasons to get excited about the handsets. The phones will have a great new design, a better camera than any other Galaxy models, and significantly less bloatware — at least according to Samsung’s own recent teasers coupled with some of the most recent reports.

On top of that, there’s one more reason to get excited about Samsung’s new creation, as the phone might be significantly faster than any top flagship from the competition, including the iPhone 6 and the upcoming HTC One M9. More →
