There’s been a good deal of hand wringing from gadget fans lately about how Samsung sold out functionality in the name of form when it decided to not give the Galaxy S6 an easily replaceable battery. Charles Arthur, however, thinks Samsung is smart enough to know what it’s doing and he makes a persuasive case that there’s no way the company would have ditched the replaceable battery for the S6 if it thought such a move would significantly hurt its sales.

Of course, sometimes Apple puts design details in the iPhone that are so subtle they go unnoticed for most users. And now, one such detail has been revealed. More →

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6: The ultimate speed test

By on March 30, 2015 at 9:36 AM.

Samsung’s brand new flagship smartphones for the first half of 2015 are just weeks away from launching, and Android fans are clearly excited. They have great cause for excitement, of course, since the new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge represent a complete departure for Samsung, which designed its new flagship phones from the ground up. The result is a pair of premium smartphones the likes of which we’ve never seen from the South Korean consumer electronics giant.

As excitement continues to build ahead of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge’s April 10th release, we constantly see new comparisons pop up that pit the S6 against the reigning smartphone champ, Apple’s iPhone 6. One comparison may be of particular interest, however: A new speed test that focuses on real-world usage. More →
