Samsung has just launched the Galaxy S5 Plus smartphone with a Snapdragon 805 SoC, bringing it on par with the current crop of flagships such as the Galaxy Note 4 and the Motorola Nexus 6. Not surprisingly, this is pretty much the only difference between the Galaxy S5 Plus and the regular Galaxy S5 which was announced back in February. As of this moment, there’s no word on which markets will receive the Galaxy S5 Plus, but considering that the company is rolling out the Galaxy Note 4 in most global markets this month, we won’t...

A seller on eBay is offering the AT&T model of the Galaxy S5 for just $419.99. This is the unlocked variant of course, which means you can add any compatible GSM SIM card of your choice to operate the device. The smartphone will be supplied in an open box, which is usually the case when devices arrive back to the retailer or carrier. This doesn’t mean that the device is used though, as the smartphone is still brand new. If you can look over this tiny aspect, the Galaxy S5 for $420 is an excellent deal, considering it’s...

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is already available in the U.S. through a multitude of carriers. And it’s only natural for us to compare the smartphone with Google’s latest offering, the Nexus 6 which was launched last week. And now, courtesy of UK retailer Carphone Warehouse, we have a better idea of how the two smartphones compare in terms of size and features. What’s instantly evident from the video is the fact that even though the Nexus 6 is significantly larger than the Galaxy Note 4 on paper, the size difference isn’t...

The Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 smartphone is launching via AT&T later this week, according to a statement issued by the carrier. The smartphone will be made available for $474.99 off contract or $149.99 if you’re looking to sign a 2-year agreement. The Galaxy Mega 2 can also be had under the Next 18 plan for $19.80 a month while the Next 12 plan will set you back by $23.75 a month. It’s clearly not the cheapest smartphone available out there and the specs sheet isn’t all that convincing either. The Galaxy Mega 2 is...

According to a new report, AT&T is looking to ditch the Kids Mode feature from Samsung’s devices in favor of a paid version which is sold on the Play Store. It is said that AT&T’s LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab 4 is seeing the inclusion of the Famingo app, which serves a similar purpose as the Kids Mode feature but comes with a price tag of $4.99. We’re not quite sure what the reasoning behind this could be apart from monetizing devices further, but it will certainly not go down well with the customers. The particular...

Yes, that title is correct. The AT&T variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has finally gotten its KitKat update. The Wifi variant got the update back in May, so this has been a long time coming. This isn’t the upcoming Android 5.0 Lollipop, but at least the Note 8.0 is finally getting KitKat. You’ll get all the usual KitKat improvements, along with the Beats Music app from AT&T. These are the full release notes: Android OS Version upgraded to 4.4.2 with all Security patches Beat Music app pre-loaded GMS apps update...

Samsung has made the world aware about the Exynos 5433 chipset, which will feature in some variants of the Galaxy Note 4 phablet. The company today has officially taken the wraps off this particular chipset by calling it the Exynos 7 Octa. This chip is one of the most powerful octa-core chips going around as it utilizes ARM’s Cortex-A57 and A53 cores respectively. Using the 20nm manufacturing process, it is very easy on the battery as well, so it’s a very powerful mobile SoC overall. Samsung will start branding this chipset...

Samsung took us all by surprise when it announced the Galaxy Golden last year sporting a dual screen flip phone form factor. And given the excessively priced nature of the handset, it didn’t quite turn into the success that the company had hoped. However, it seems like the company hasn’t given up on the concept as of yet with a successor now surfacing. The Galaxy Golden 2 has leaked via Samsung thanks to a user manual, thus confirming its existence. The manual further suggests that the Galaxy Golden 2 will pack a relatively...
