The least objective Samsung product review you’ll ever read

Samsung is known for using lots of hopelessly cheesy gimmicks to promote its products, including making its own unboxing videos for them, conducting its own consumer surveys about them and putting them through its own in-house drop tests.

Pick up Samsung’s Gear S smartwatch at every major U.S. carrier this fall

Despite the seemingly endless string of releases over the past year, Samsung hasn’t had a great deal of success in the wearable industry.

The fastest keyboard in the world is available on Samsung’s curvy Gear S

The Tizen-powered, SIM-enabled, curvy Gear S is Samsung’s latest addition to its smartwatch portfolio, and may be its best wearable computer yet. Sporting a large, flexible display, the Gear S looks nothing like its predecessors, although the device’s biggest flaw may be Tizen, a platform that’s yet to receive any love from developers. Luckily for Gear S buyers that plan to use the device without connecting it to a phone, Fleksy is here to help, at least when it comes to quickly typing messages on the tiny display. More →
