Under the hood, the Galaxy Tab S boasts of all of the high-end features you’d expect from Samsung’s latest flagship including an Exynos 5 Octa core processor, Android KitKat 4.4, 3GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of storage, and a microSD slot that supports up to 128GB. You’ll also find a front-facing 2.1 megapixel camera that supports Full HD along with an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash. To deliver the best possible visual experience, the high-resolution Super AMOLED display found in the Galaxy Tab S supports a resolution of 2560x1600 and boasts of a 73% wider color gamut...

In June, Samsung announced a new flagship line of tablets known as the Galaxy Tab S. Available in 8.4- and 10.5-inch versions, the Galaxy Tab S is geared towards media consumption, with hardware specifications that are designed to deliver an outstanding media experience. Not only does the Galaxy Tab S have killer hardware, but Samsung also managed to pack these features into the company’s thinnest and lightest tablet design yet. To deliver the best possible visual experience, the high-resolution Super AMOLED display found in the Galaxy Tab S supports a resolution of 2560x1600 and boasts of... Read more...
You could see this one coming a mile a way.  Though Samsung is clearly Google's golden child when it comes to moving Android-powered smartphones, there's a distinct divide developing between the two when it comes to the latest "wearables" technology trend and even a hint of one in smartphones as well. Further, according to recent reports, apparently Google CEO Larry Page's patience is wearing thin and in a rather "tense" meeting with Samsung Vice Chairman Jay Y. Lee, Page made it crystal clear that he is not happy with Samsung's lack of effort in developing Android Wear devices.  Instead,... Read more...
One of Samsung's goals with its latest Galaxy Tab 4 tablets was to create a family of products that offered good value and versatility to a wide range of potential consumers. The new Galaxy Tab 4 family is available in three sizes: 7-, 8-, and 10.1-inches and the tablets feature lightweight materials, thin bezels, and HD displays. In March, we took a look at Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. If the flagship Pro series is too much for you in terms of features or price, the Galaxy Tab 4 series may be a better option. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 which... Read more...

In the bid to dominate all of mobile, Samsung is sinking its teeth into yet another department: e-readers. Over the years, the Kindle (from Amazon) has outsold the Nook (from B&N), and we haven't seen a new one pop out since the middle of last year. B&N informed the public that new Nook products were indeed in progress last fall, but many saw that as a last-gasp effort just to keep the spotlight focused on its brand through the holiday season. Now, it's all becoming clear. The newest Nook will actually be a hybrid of a Nook and a Galaxy Tab, leveraging Samsung's mighty brand to hopefully... Read more...
The Android smartphone wars are heating up here in Q2 with Samsung, HTC and soon LG releasing flagship devices targeted at luring in enthusiasts and mainstream consumers who might be looking to upgrade to the latest technologies and screen sizes.  We just gave you a detailed evaluation of HTC's One (M8) for 2014 and today we're here to bring you our view of Samsung's new Galaxy S5 Android superphone... At Samsung's Unpacked event in February, we got some early hands-on time with the Galaxy S5 and what impressed us then is what impresses us now, now that we've had a few weeks to live and work...

Russia seems to be making news these days for all of the wrong reasons, but the latest tidbit doesn't involve military actions or international sanctions. Purportedly in response to the NSA outings in the U.S., Russian government officials have traded in their iPads for Samsung tablets. The telecommunications minister has said that the move is being made to "ensure tighter security," presumably as Apple is a U.S.-based outfit, whereas Samsung is housed in South Korea. The move actually happened a small while ago, but just now came to light. Samsung has made some pretty serious moves in terms of... Read more...
Today we were on hand at Samsung's Unpacked press event in New York City to see the live unveiling of the upcoming Galaxy S5 smartphone, and Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit smartwatches.  If you haven't already seen our coverage of the original announcment, the Samsung's upcoming flagship features a 5.1-inch (1920x1080) Super AMOLED display and a quad-core 2.5GHz SoC paired to 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of storage, and a microSD card slot that supports up to 128GB of additional storage. Right out of the box, the Galaxy S5 will run Android v4.4.2 (KitKat). We had a chance to get a little... Read more...
We got some hands-on time with Samsung’s Galaxy Note Pro and Galaxy Tab Pro tablets at CES, and the company has now stamped a date on the devices’ availability in the U.S. They’ll be available as of February 13th, but you can preorder one today. The first three models in the family are the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and 10.1- and 8.4-inch versions of the Galaxy Tab Pro, all WiFi-only. Verizon will offer an LTE version of the 12.2-inch Note Pro “later this quarter”, and in March you’ll be able to get a 12.2-inch Tab Pro, too. Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 “The... Read more...
It feels as if Samsung's Galaxy S4 is still pretty fresh, and it's still dominating the sales charts. But could a replacement be just around the bend? Samsung has just issued press invites for an "Unpacked 5" event, slated to take place in Barcelona, Spain during Mobile World Congress. The planet's largest mobile-focused trade event gets going in just a few weeks, and while it has certainly been the launchpad for a number of hero devices over the years (and even Microsoft's own Windows Phone operating system), Samsung has shied away from these mega-events of late. Instead, the company has followed... Read more...
At Samsung’s Press Event last night, we had the chance to get up close and personal with the just-announced Galaxy Note Pro and trio of new Galaxy Tab Pro devices. In our brief time with Samsung Pro series products, it seemed obvious that the company spent significant resources refining their designs, as the fit and finish was top notch. There are also a few new software features on the tablets, as you'll in the video below.  One of the first things you’re sure to notice is the new Magazine UX home screens, but there’s also additional functionality...

Just over a year ago, Samsung broadened its Note portfolio to not only include phones, but tablets as well. The company saw a need to introduce a slate that catered to working professionals, power users, and those who need more content creation capabilities -- hence, the  Galaxy Note 10.1 with the S Pen was born. In the ever-challenging world of product naming and differentiation, Samsung decided on quite the mouthful for the Note 10.1's successor. The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is perhaps awkwardly named, but it's shipping in a market where work-capable tablets are certainly generating... Read more...
