Samsung explains the Galaxy Note 4’s design in words you’ll never comprehend

Samsung isn’t shy about using rhetorical excess to describe its devices — recall that it once described the Galaxy S4 as “a precious stone glittering in the dark or countless stars sparkling in the night sky,” while it said the Galaxy S III “opens up new horizons and allows you to live your life extraordinarily” by being “enhanced with nature and human emotion.” You’ll be happy to know that Samsung hasn’t toned down its approach when it comes to marketing the Galaxy Note 4, as the company has just written an explanation for its new device’s design that explains why it’s the epitome of “modern sleek.” More →

iPhone 6 Plus vs. Galaxy Note 4: The ultimate comparison video

This year, Apple and Samsung will compete for the first time ever for phablet buyers’ attention. Apple launched its first 5.5-inch phablet on September 19th, while Samsung followed almost a month later with its fourth-generation big-screen Galaxy Note model. 9to5Mac took a closer look at both the iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy Note 4 by highlighting their main features in an extended video.

Galaxy Note 4 Launch

Beginning today, you can finally buy the best phablet on the planet

Beginning today, you can finally buy the best phablet on the planet

Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus might be a better all-around product — and it will definitely sell far more units — but as we said in our recent review, the brand new Galaxy Note 4 is the best phablet in the world. The device is without question the most sleek and solid smartphone Samsung has ever made, and its massive quad HD display is positively gorgeous. What’s more, the Note 4 actually makes use of that giant display with awesome multitasking features and the S Pen stylus, rather than just making “big screen” a check box, as it is on the iPhone 6 Plus.

The wait has seemed like an eternity thanks to months of rumors leading up to the Galaxy Note 4’s launch, but it’s finally over: Samsung’s new Note goes on sale in the United States beginning today. More →

iPhone 6 Plus vs. Galaxy Note 4: The ultimate camera shootout

BGR reviewed Samsung’s brand new Galaxy Note 4 phablet on Wednesday and in the process, we spent a good amount of time comparing Samsung’s latest and greatest to the new iPhone 6 Plus. 2014 marks the first time Samsung will have to go head to head with Apple in the phablet space, and we already know that the competition is going to be fierce. Apple is selling iPhone 6 Plus units as quickly as its manufacturing partners can build them, and every device Apple sells represents another customer in the comparatively small phablet market that won’t be buying Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4.

While we compared the two devices in a number of important areas, we didn’t spend much time comparing their class-leading cameras. Luckily, a new feature published on Thursday does a great job of just that. More →

Samsung’s new batteries put an interesting spin on ‘Bendgate’

It was just days ago that technology fans the world over were growing increasingly concerned about the tendency of their expensive electronics to bend out of shape, but Samsung appears to have found a way to make flexibility a feature rather than a bug. Tizen Indonesia reports that the SDI branch of Samsung’s R&D department unveiled a flexible battery for wearable devices at this year’s InterBattery exhibition in South Korea this week. More →

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review

It’s certainly open to debate, but I would argue that the Galaxy Note 4 is the most important flagship smartphone Samsung has ever launched. It won’t be Samsung’s fastest-selling phone and it definitely won’t ship the most units over its lifespan. The Note 4 doesn’t even necessarily break new ground like the original Galaxy Note did two years ago.

But 2014 marks the first time ever that Samsung will go up against Apple in the phablet space it helped pioneer, and whether or not Samsung’s Note 4 sales show continued growth could be a telling sign of things to come. More →

Leaked roadmap shows when Galaxy S5 and 12 other Samsung phones will get Android updates

Leaked roadmap shows when Galaxy S5 and 12 other Samsung phones will get Android updates

Rumors suggest Google is just days or even hours away from finally revealing Android L release details alongside its new Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet. The company previewed the latest build of its Android operating system this past summer, and the star of the show is clearly Google’s new “Material Design” that completely changes the look of Android and makes it far more sleek and modern.

But while the world waits to find out when Android L will finally start rolling out to mobile devices, a newly leaked roadmap reveals that Samsung is still hard at work trying to get the latest build of last year’s Android release on its most popular phones. More →

Even hardcore Samsung haters will applaud the company for this innovation

Samsung takes a lot of knocks for being a “fast follower” in the tech world but the company really is much more innovative than many give it credit for. Case in point: Samsung this week announced the development of a new 60GHz Wi-Fi technology that will allow for peak download speeds of up to 4.6Gbps, an five-fold increase from the current top speeds of 866Mbps.
