Samsung Reviews, Rumors and Upcoming News

Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 arrives like the Mega 1.5
By Luke Jones on Tuesday September 23, 2014

We can't remember if Samsung launched a smartphone last week, but the Korean giant did this week as the new Galaxy Mega 2 has landed. The sequel to last year's massive phablet is much of the same in terms of boasting mid-range specs, although it may find itself priced out in an ever competitive phablet market.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha to launch on AT&T and its costly
By Luke Jones on Monday September 22, 2014

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is a fine smartphone, a metal clad device that offers some nice specs in an interesting 4.7-inch design. It launched recently but is hugely expensive for what it is, costing more than the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3 in the United Kingdom. The handset will now land in the United States, with AT&T confirming that it will be exclusively carrying the first Samsung smartphone built with premium materials (the Galaxy Note 4 has since followed).

Samsung's first Tizen smartphone coming in November
By Luke Jones on Monday September 22, 2014

We have seen plenty of false dawns for Samsung and Intel's Tizen platform. Sure, the OS has found its way to most of Samsung's Gear smartwatches, but in terms of landing on smartphones the path has been bumpier. However, the Korean company has not turned its back on Tizen and we may actually be seeing a first ever devices soon.

Samsung's Galaxy A5 is made from cold stuff
By Luke Jones on Friday September 19, 2014

Samsung rolled out the Galaxy Alpha last month. It was the company's first handset to be made from premium materials, boasting a metal chassis, although the Galaxy Note 4 has since followed that suit. I like the Alpha but it launched in the UK at a crazy price that makes it more expensive on contract than even full blown flagships. Samsung likes the device too and we have reported previously how the company is expanding the Alpha name and creating a whole series behind it.

Samsung offering $200 for old smartphones to get a Galaxy Note 4
By Luke Jones on Friday September 19, 2014

With pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 now up and running with carriers and networks, you may be turning your attention to financing the handset. The king of the phablet world does not come cheap, but Samsung is making things a little easier with a new cashback program that could make it simpler to get the S Pen packing Note 4 in your hands.

Samsung planning mobile payment focused smartwatch
By Luke Jones on Friday September 19, 2014

If Samsung has an idea, it makes a product for it. The Korean company already has six smartwatches in the market, but is reportedly developing a new one that will be focused on mobile payments. Obviously spurred on by Apple Watch and Apple Pay, Samsung is working on the new NFC oriented smartwatch to go alongside its numerous other efforts.

US carriers detail Galaxy Note 4 release dates and prices
By Luke Jones on Thursday September 18, 2014

Here's the fact; the Galaxy Note 4 is the best smartphone Samsung has ever made, and it is arguably the best smartphone ever made, period. The handset launched at Sammy's IFA event in Berlin a couple of weeks ago and we have been waiting on availability ever since. Today, the major US carriers have confirmed when the device will be available for pre-order and when it will start shipping.

Samsung is developing its own sitcom... look away now
By Luke Jones on Tuesday September 16, 2014

Oh please no. I just checked the calendar and no, it's not April Fool's Day so this news that Samsung is planning its own sitcom is the real deal. As worrying news goes this is right at the top so we can probably expect many cringe worthy moments ahead from the Korean company. The show is about to start shooting and will be a South Korean production centered on a fictional Samsung worker and his/her friends.

The Galaxy Note 4 has the best smartphone screen
By Luke Jones on Monday September 15, 2014

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 landed at IFA a few weeks ago and was the blockbuster smartphone we all thought it would be. Its features the very best mobile technology currently available, with its specs sheet reading like a what?s current list in the handset market. It is Samsung's newest assault against rivals who have sought to outdo the company, but just how good is the Galaxy Note 4?
