Samsung Stomps on Apple’s iPhone in New Galaxy Note 8 Ad

Samsung and Apple have had an interesting relationship history of suing each other, mocking one another, and even building parts for each other over the years. And Samsung’s new ad for Galaxy Note 8 is no different. The commercial takes snipes at Apple, depicting a forlorn iPhone owner being constantly burned by iPhone models’ lagging features. 

Samsung Debuts Brave New Galaxy Note 8

Samsung has resurrected the Samsung Galaxy Note and promises it won’t blow up. The new smartphone debuted during Samsung’s live event Wednesday in New York City, with an unforgettable stage projecting images on the walls and the floor.

AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5 Active Review: The Hardiest Phone of them All

When the Samsung Galaxy S5 came out this spring, it was one ugly band-aid of an unveiling. You know what I’m talking about, that dimpled pleathery backing on the device. Still, it had state-of-the-art specs, a beautiful 5.1″ HD display, and improved Touchwiz overlayed onto the smooth 4.4 Android KitKat running behind the scenes. But with all S devices, there’s always a counterpart to follow. And, in this case, it’s the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active. Like the original S4 Active, this device is ruggedized for the outdoorsy, the clumsy, and the generally careless with their belongings. AT&T was nice enough to send us a review unit and we gave it a fortnight of data tracking, dunk-testing, and general smartphone gauntlet of use. Read on below to see how the Active is one of the most indestructible flagship phones on the market.

AT&T Samsung Galaxy Gear Review: A Half-baked Device with Shiny Features

TV shows such as The Jetsons, Knight Rider, and Inspector Gadget have been brought back into the limelight this fall, and it’s all for one Samsung’s revolutionary product–a smartwatch. The Samsung Galaxy Gear is here, and it’s attempting to fulfill all of your favorite science fiction television shows dreams. Phone calls from your wrist, spoken memos to your Captain’s log, incognito spy-cam shots, and even tracking your footsteps are all features of the Galaxy Gear. But is it worth the $300? Does it add any more functionality to you life? That’s what I’ll be discussing in this review of the paired duo, the Samsung Galaxy Gear and its partner in crime, the Samsung Galaxy Note III on AT&T.

Verizon Wireless Announces Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Announced in January, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will be available online and in stores starting Thursday, March 7 for $599.99. You will notice that this tablet will not be subsidized from Verizon, a growing trend among wireless carriers.

The LTE 10.1″ tablet packs a 1.4GHz Exynos Quad-Core processor and 2 GB of RAM. The rear camera is a 5 MP auto focus camera with LED flash, and users will find a 1.9 MP camera on the front of the device. Photoshop Touch will also be preloaded onto the device for that weird tablet photographer guy inside of you we all know and judge.

Aimed at business users, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will also come with enterprise apps such as Exchange ActiveSync, on-device encryption and Cisco VPN(Virtual Private Network). The Tab 10.1 also comes with Samsung’s S-Pen for jotting down meeting minutes or doodling over your children’s photos.

Verizon customers can add this tablet to their Share Everything account for $10 per month.

 

Review: Samsung Galaxy S III

I have been lucky enough to receive Samsung‘s latest flagship offering (the Galaxy S III of course) in three flavors: AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. Sprint remains, outstanding.

For the first time in Android history, all major carriers received pretty much the exact same device with the exact same specs. Of course, the Verizon version still utilizes CDMA technology for their 3G network and T-Mobile uses a different GSM frequency than AT&T, but the externals and internals are almost identical, making this review a little easier for all intents and purposes.

If you don’t have the time to read this entire article, I will preface this review with a bold statement: This device is the closest thing to perfect I have seen in a mobile device and it just may be the device that pushes me back to Android as a primary device.
