What on Earth is going on right now?

Smartphones are like anything else. When you pick one up it’s fresh and new, and the novelty overpowers everything else.

It has now been about a month since I first used Samsung’s new Galaxy S6… so why can’t I find anything to complain about? More →

The most amazing thing about the feat was obviously the fact that Apple only had two new smartphones on the market and was still able to topple Samsung, which sells dozens of phone models.

Here in 2015, however, it looks like the new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are ready to help tip the scale back in Samsung’s favor. More →
