The unexpected winner from the Apple Watch unveiling: Samsung

You might think that after launching six smartwatches over the last year to very little fanfare, Samsung would be devastated by the positive reaction to the Apple Watch. Sure, Apple’s device has its detractors, but knowing Apple fans, there’s a high probability that the Apple Watch will make waves when it launches in early 2015. But even if Apple’s smartwatch does fly off store shelves, analysts say that Samsung will take it in stride. More →

Samsung Gear VR Price

Samsung reportedly revealed the price of its Gear VR headset

Samsung reportedly revealed the price of its Gear VR headset

The Gear VR is a fascinating proposition. Partnering with Oculus, Samsung has built its very own virtual reality headset, but there’s a catch — you have to own a Galaxy Note 4 to use it. We were able to get some hands-on time with it last week before IFA 2014 kicked off and we were impressed with just how close the experience was to that of the actual dedicated VR headset that is the Oculus Rift, but we still had questions. Chief among them: how much will the Gear VR cost? More →

Meet the shock-resistant Galaxy Tab Active, a tablet you won’t be afraid to drop

If there was one device everyone was waiting to see at this year’s IFA trade show in Berlin, it was the Galaxy Note 4. Poised to take on the iPhone 6 later this month, the Galaxy Note 4 is clearly Samsung’s priority for the immediate future, but that doesn’t mean the endless iteration on previous hardware releases is going to slow down any time soon.

Nvidia Vs. Samsung Patent Lawsuit

You’ll never guess who’s getting sued for patent infringement again

You’ll never guess who’s getting sued for patent infringement again

Actually, that’s not true — as you can probably guess, it’s Samsung that’s getting hit with yet another intellectual property suit from yet another different company. Chipmaker Nvidia announced on Thursday that it’s launching a patent infringement lawsuit against both Samsung and Qualcomm for allegedly infringing on its patents related to mobile graphics processors. Nvidia says that this is the first patent lawsuit in the company’s history of more than two decades, and we’re sure that Samsung is honored to be part of this important milestone. More →

Galaxy Note 4 Release Date

This is when you’ll be able to finally buy the Galaxy Note 4

This is when you’ll be able to finally buy the Galaxy Note 4

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 4 smartphone on Wednesday at IFA 2014 but it never actually revealed when the device will be launched other than saying it’ll be available in U.S. in early October. But a new report from Dutch publication Galaxy Club seems to indicate the actual release date of the phablet, and from the looks of it potential buyers may have to wait more than a month to get it.

Samsung Gear VR hands-on: Virtual reality like you’ve never seen it before

Samsung Gear VR hands-on: Virtual reality like you’ve never seen it before

By on September 3, 2014 at 9:30 AM.

It didn’t exactly come as a surprise when Samsung unveiled its first ever virtual reality headset during a press conference on Wednesday, but I’m not sure anyone expected the Gear VR to come out the way it did. Unlike the Oculus Rift and other virtual reality headsets we’ve seen in the recent past, the Gear VR is not a standalone device. Instead, Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 4 docks in the headset and the phone’s 5.7-inch quad HD display serves as the screen for all the action.

It’s an interesting implementation, to say the least, but I found that the virtual reality experience the Gear VR provides is shockingly entertaining. More →

Galaxy Note Edge hands-on: Samsung’s newest phablet packs a huge twist

Galaxy Note Edge hands-on: Samsung’s newest phablet packs a huge twist

By on September 3, 2014 at 9:30 AM.

Samsung has proven time and time again that it is not afraid at all to experiment with new ideas. Sometimes, those ideas lead to huge new product segments — imagine Samsung hadn’t pushed so hard with supersized smartphone screens. Other times, the company falls flat on its face. Of course, Samsung has enough money in the bank that it can afford to fall down while it searches for “the next big thing.”

Is the brand new Galaxy Note Edge an aha moment featuring meaningful innovation or another instance of Samsung throwing spaghetti at the wall to see if it sticks? We’ll let you be the judge. More →

Galaxy Note 4 hands-on: Does Apple’s iPhone 6 phablet stand a chance?

Galaxy Note 4 hands-on: Does Apple’s iPhone 6 phablet stand a chance?

By on September 3, 2014 at 9:23 AM.

Samsung wasn’t the first handset vendor to launch a smartphone with an oversized display, but there’s no question that Samsung single-handedly popularized the new “phablet” category. The company laughed in the face of neighsayers — myself included — and proved that consumers were indeed looking for phones with supersized screens. In fact, devices that would have been considered phablets back when Samsung helped pioneer the category are now the norm, and top rival Apple has been forced to finally increase the display size on its iPhone lineup.

Now, the king of phablets is back with the fourth version of its groundbreaking Galaxy Note lineup, the Galaxy Note 4. More →
