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.
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.
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.
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.
