iPhone 6 Plus Vs Galaxy Note 4

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

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

By on October 16, 2014 at 10:16 AM.

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 →

New report claims Samsung may make a mistake of epic proportions

Things haven’t been going great for Samsung lately, but things surely can’t be this bad for the company… can they? SamMobile points us to a new report in The Korea Herald that claims Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is meeting with Samsung executives in Seoul this week to discuss whether Samsung is interested in building the next “Facebook Phone.” More →

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review

By on October 15, 2014 at 9:00 AM.

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 →

Galaxy S5 Update

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.

Leak may reveal Samsung’s bold new Android interface

There are two things you can bring up that will almost instantly annoy certain diehard Android fans: The first is mentioning what a drag it is to wait so long for the latest software updates thanks to carrier and OEM constraints. The other is Samsung’s TouchWiz UI, which is to many Android fans what Jar Jar Binks is to Star Wars fans or what Nikki and Paulo were for Lost fans — that is, something that’s capable of single-handedly wrecking something they otherwise love.

You can buy the Galaxy Note 4 right now

Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 4 is easily one of the most hotly anticipated smartphones of the year, and it turns out the wait for the new phablet will be shorter than we thought for a handful of eager Samsung fans. After pushing up the launch of its new Galaxy Note 4 in South Korea to help detract a tiny bit of attention from Apple’s new iPhone 6 Plus phablet, the company confirmed earlier this month that its new Note 4 flagship phone would debut on October 17th in the United States.

But why wait until next Friday when you can buy a shiny new Galaxy Note 4 right now? More →

The silver lining in Samsung’s lousy week

Samsung is certainly going through a rough patch right now as its quarterly profits have continued on an alarming downward trajectory. That said, things aren’t all bad for the Korean smartphone titan right now: As The Wall Street Journal points out, Samsung’s brand is still one of the most powerful in the world and it’s only gotten more prestigious in the last year.
