Galaxy S6 Edge

Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge shipments top 10 million, but should Samsung still worry?

Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge shipments top 10 million, but should Samsung still worry?

With profits from Samsung’s division on the decline, the recent release of the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge could not have come at a better time.

According to The Korea Herald, shipments of Samsung’s new flagship devices have already passed the 10 million mark, not too bad given that they’ve barely been on the market for a little over a month. Both the S6 and the S6 Edge hit store shelves on April 10. Incidentally, the Herald’s source reportedly comes from a high-ranking Samsung official.

Samsung’s next flagship phablet for 2015 is going to be the fifth-generation Galaxy Note, a device that’s expected to launch in at least two different versions. Just like the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy Note 4 before it, the Galaxy Note 5 is expected to be released in a regular version with a flat screen, and an edge version with a curved display.

While actual images of the Galaxy Note 5 have not yet leaked, a graphic designer has imagined what the Galaxy Note 5 edge might look like. More →

With iOS 9 looming, Samsung’s copy of Apple’s best iOS 8 feature has just been released

The timing couldn’t have been better. In the morning, Samsung managed to get its $930 penalty for copying the iPhone reduced by a substantial amount. Then, in the afternoon, Samsung released its copy of what is likely the best feature that Apple introduced last year when it rolled out iOS 8.

What a day! More →

iPhone 6 vs. Samsung Android Sales

Samsung’s iPhone nightmare is far from over, and now it’s affecting Google

Samsung’s iPhone nightmare is far from over, and now it’s affecting Google

One of the factors that contributed to Samsung’s weak quarters last year is the iPhone 6 family of smartphones. Apple sold a record-breaking number of handsets in 2014 at the expense of rivals, with a staggering 74.4 million iPhones having been sold during the Christmas quarter. Now, it looks like the iPhone 6 buying frenzy is far from over. More →

Apple Vs Samsung

Appeals Court chops $382M off of Samsung’s penalty for copying the iPhone

Appeals Court chops $382M off of Samsung’s penalty for copying the iPhone

Back in 2012, the entire tech world was captivated by Apple and Samsung’s patent trial. One of the things that made the trial so interesting is that it lifted the veil of secrecy that typically shrouds Apple’s operations, providing us with unprecedented access to the company’s development process, market research methodology, and even photos of unreleased iPhone prototypes.

As for the merits of the case itself, Apple would ultimately emerge victorious, with a jury awarding Apple $930 million in damages. But as with any court ruling, especially one with nearly a billion dollars on the line, Samsung has busied itself with filing all sorts of appeals looking to have the ruling overturned, or at the very least, the damages amount reduced.

Samsung sells an official Galaxy S6 case that ruins the phone’s display

Samsung sells an official Galaxy S6 case that ruins the phone’s display

Can you imagine the backlash and media uproar we would see if Apple ever sold an accessory that ruined iPhone displays? “Casegate” would be sung far and wide, and even your local news anchor would demand on air that Apple take action. Well, you won’t see quite that amount of attention in this case, but it looks like Samsung is selling shoddy protective cases that leave customers with badly damaged smartphones. More →

The BGR Show: Episode 10 – UP3, Samsung’s future, exclusives and more

Last week’s show was one of our biggest so far, thanks in part to a little Apple exclusive we snuck in there. Well, this week we’ve got a couple more exclusives peppered in throughout the show, and we cover our widest range of topics yet. We cover Zach’s love/hate relationship with the new Jawbone UP3, Samsung’s fantastic new ARTIK initiative, an insider’s report on the upcoming iPhone 6s, and yes, the Apple Watch.

Things also get real when the show is interrupted not once but twice by phone calls — first from AT&T and then from Apple’s special private Apple Watch Edition support line — and we play those calls right on the podcast. If you thought you knew how crazy Jonathan is getting waiting for his Edition to finally ship, just wait… More →
