As an unapologetic (God, I just can’t get enough of that word) admirer of everything that has to do with Google (even the movie “Internship”), I always set my bar of expectations extremely high ahead of Nexus and/or Android announcements. And more often than not, I end up disappointed. Not that Big G tends to
The recipe seemed simple. The exact same ingredients, just in a bigger package. Not even much more evolved, just bigger, as rumor had it the One max was not going to take One’s hardware a step further, but instead keep things equally as “modest”, with Snapdragon 600 power and 2 gigs of RAM. And sadly,
The ink is barely dry on Samsung Galaxy Note 3’s reviews, the phablet hasn’t even reached all four major US carriers yet (there’s still we know who keeping us hanging), the world’s first curved display smartphone has only broken cover earlier this week, yet, believe it or not, the Galaxy S5 rumor mill is already
We’ve pitted it against its forefather, we’ve had its (theoretical) speed compared with Sony’s Xperia Z1, LG’s G2 and Apple’s iPhone 5s, we’ve rounded up some of the best, most thorough and conclusive reviews online, all of which leads to one conclusion and one conclusion only: Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 is the best smartphone money
Following an unusually hot spring in the smartphone landscape, which saw the Galaxy S4 and HTC One battle it out for gold (though sadly it wasn’t much of a contest in the end), and a much quieter summer, the fall season got off to an explosive start courtesy of two major IFA announcements. The contenders
With all the hoopla surrounding Apple’s new iPhone 5s and 5c, their full-metal and “unapologetic” plastic builds, 64-bit new processor that’s sooo much zippier than 32-bit chips inside Androids and so on and so forth, the tech world pretty much ignored what I think should have been treated as an equally as important product unveiling:
Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Taking advantage of its consolidated comfortable position in the smartphone market, Samsung hasn’t considerably upped its ante, choosing the rehash route rather than the major upgrade. Or how about this: it isn’t worth upgrading to the latest Samsung flagship device, as it’s not a game-changer in any key
Hardware configurations with Snapdragon 800 chips and Adreno 330 GPUs are on their way to becoming the norm rather than the exceptions in the high-end Android smartphone décor. Everybody from Samsung to LG, Sony to Asus, Acer to Pantech has either unveiled such an uber-zippy handheld of late or is getting ready to do so.
It takes a lot of guts to schedule a smartphone unveiling just one day after Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z1’s formal intros and less than a week ahead of the iPhone 5C and 5S announcements, but then again Xiaomi looks like a gutsier than average OEM. After all, the Chinese have very
Battle of the giants, take two. The duel between Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and the HTC One, which split the Android world into two this first part of the year, might have ended with a no contest win for the former (as far as sales are concerned, at least), but something tells me the GNote 3 vs.
As we’re nearing the biggest tech event of the fall, IFA Berlin, scheduled to take place between September 6 and 11, the plans of most major (and minor) Android players become clearer and clearer by the day. Acer, while still being viewed as a low-ranked soldier in the grand Android army, is reportedly planning to
Quirky. Unusual. Bizarre. Exotic. Those are only a few of the adjectives tech bloggers and writers have used to describe the Asus PadFone line of Android-powered hybrid devices. Kicked off in the spring of 2012 with a 3-in-1 gizmo capable of seamlessly transforming from a smartphone to a tablet and then laptop, the PadFone family
NTT DoCoMo, Japan’s number one wireless service provider, has made it a habit of unveiling an entire herd of smartphones before the summer season, most of which get to either be exclusive to the Asian carrier or make their global debut around those parts. Today is the big day for DoCoMo’s latest summer smartphone line-up,
With the Galaxy S4 out and about for mere weeks, you might think Samsung’s marketing efforts would focus solely on the “next big thing”. Only, unlike its predecessors, the S4 is just a piece of Sammy’s world-conquering puzzle, with reinforcements bound to come from the Active, Mini and Zoom versions of the flagship device. The
