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 →

MWC 2015: Galaxy S6 Unpacked

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

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 →

Is the Galaxy S6 really an iPhone ripoff? Leaked comparison photo lets you be the judge

Samsung has managed to make quite a name for itself over the years — in more ways than one. The company practically came from out of nowhere and skyrocketed to the top of the smartphone market in just a few short years, quickly becoming the No. 1 vendor in the world by shipment volume. Of course, the company borrowed a lot from Apple along the way, and it made a reputation for itself as a copycat as a result.

Companies borrow from each other all the time, of course, but Samsung was probably a bit more blatant about it than it should have been — see this secret 132-page guide to copying the iPhone that Samsung made back in 2010 for an example.

And now, it looks like Samsung might be back to its old tricks with the upcoming new Galaxy S6. More →

Huge leak: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge pictured for the first time

Huge leak: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge pictured for the first time

If you thought the Galaxy S6 model that’ll sport a curved display would get similar software features as Samsung’s Note Edge phablet, then you might be in for another surprise. As SamMobile reports, the Galaxy S6 Edge might lack the special Edge functions available on the Galaxy Note Edge, as Samsung has apparently chosen a different approach to such displays.

Even more interestingly, a handset said to be the upcoming Galaxy S6 Edge Samsung intends to announce this coming Sunday has just been pictured for the first time More →

You can make your Android phone (or iPhone) look like a Galaxy S6 right now

There’s plenty of buzz surrounding recent leaks and rumors suggesting that Samsung’s next-generation flagship phone, the Galaxy S6, is shaping up to be another iPhone copy from the South Korean electronics giant. Nothing is certain until the handset is unveiled this coming Sunday, of course, and if the new S6 is an iPhone copy, we’re not so sure that’s entirely a bad thing.

Speaking of copying, still have some time to wait between when the Galaxy S6 is announced and released, but anxious fans can make their current smartphone look like a Galaxy S6 right now. More →

It had been all but confirmed that Samsung’s next flagship devices would feature wireless charging, but an FCC report proves it once and for all. More →

Major leak: Actual Galaxy S6 pictured for the first time ever

Samsung has a lot riding on the Galaxy S6 and every leak we’ve seen about the device indicates that it’s going to be the phone many Android fans have been wanting Samsung to release for years. With a reported full metal body, a major reduction in bloatware and a revamp of TouchWiz to make it less of a drain on performance, it sounds like Samsung has listened to users’ major criticisms of its devices over the years and is prepared to deliver in a big way.
