By Luke Jones on Monday March 09, 2015

Samsung seems to have its mojo back. The company announced the Galaxy S6 last week and the device seemed to hit the mark with consumers and commentators alike. After a disappointing year and sales of the Galaxy S5 falling flat, the Galaxy S6 represents a new start for the Korean company. Of course, the true litmus test for the S6 and Samsung's success moving forward will be sales, and in that respect too, the handset is off to a good start.

With Samsung's MWC just around the corner, it is time to make final arrangement for the reveal of the Galaxy S6 flagship and the Galaxy S Dual Edge.

Galaxy S6 Edge Dual Screens for Aesthetics Only
By Luke Jones on Friday February 27, 2015

This is one of those rumors that we hope will not come to be true. Reports in Korea are suggesting that the Galaxy S6 Edge that Samsung will launch on Sunday alongside the Galaxy S6 flagship will actually be called the Galaxy S Dual Edge and will feature two side screens and not just one. All good so far, but now things get a bit disappointing as those dual screens will apparently have little functionality and will be mostly for aesthetic purposes.

By Luke Jones on Thursday February 26, 2015

I have written before that the continuing decline in Samsung's smartphone business will ultimately have an impact on the company's employees.

That would follow up on 30% of the smartphone division being cut last year, but Samsung has taken another drastic action of freezing employees' salaries this year.

Samsung Loses Tablet Market Lead in India
By Luke Jones on Monday February 23, 2015

Samsung has lost considerable market share in the smartphone world over the last year, something that has been well documented. The company's slide is only really put into perspective when you see individual countries in isolation and Sammy has lost huge ground in key markets such as China, South Korea, and Japan. However, it seems the company's troubles in these important huge regions are not specific to smartphones.
