    While neither of these two devices is an actual IFA 2014 device per se, we couldn't resist the urge of putting Samsung's flagship (correction: S-flagship, as the Note 4 can easily take the crown now) against the metallic-frame rocking Galaxy Alpha, announced by Samsung on August 13. This is actually the first time we're seeing the Alpha in person, so we also had to go hands-on, to see exactly what that metallic frame is all about, and what design cues it lends to the new Note 4. The Galaxy S 5, on the other hand, is what it is, whether you like it or not. In any case it's definitely a ...

    Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 are fresh devices launched at the ongoing IFA 2014. In fact, they're so fresh, that our coverage has already started on the Ascend Mate 7 with an on-location unboxing, while we only had the chance to have a quick and dirty hands-on with the Galaxy Note 4. What do these two phablet-class smartphones have in common, and what are the differences? That's what we're trying to find out in our Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Huawei Ascend Mate 7 video below. However, both feature huge screens: 5.7- and 6-inches, respectively, while one has a ...

    What are the hottest products at IFA this year? The smartphones with their eye-catching over-the-edge screens? The super-slim tablets? The smartwatches with circular displays or even cellular radios? There is a heck of a lot of really attention-grabbing hardware out there, and while it's easy to get caught-up in the really headlining items, focusing solely on them would be doing a disservice to the scores of additional products manufacturers have brought to show off, including a lot of new accessories. Samsung had some new toys to share at its Unpacked 2 event the other day, and we ...

    You've heard the rumors about a Samsung phone with an over-the-edge display. Earlier this week, you even saw that model go official, as the company launched its Galaxy Note Edge. And in the time since, you've had the chance to hear some opinions on the phablet's design, as well as check out our first hands-on look. But are you still having a little trouble wrapping your ahead around just how this fancy edge business works, and what it really means for the phone's usability? Pull up a seat, because we're about to to give you a crash course on just what the Edge's curved screen can do. You ...

    Well before IFA came along, Samsung was already a tablet juggernaut this year. We saw the launches of multiple Galaxy Tab 4, TabPRO, and most recently Tab S models, so it wouldn't be crazy to assume that Samsung would take a little tablet break, focusing more on its new handsets and wearables. Then again, this is Samsung we're talking about, a company that can't seem to go a week without launching a new product, so when we saw it go ahead and introduce the Galaxy Tab Active earlier this week, it's not like we could act surprised. We took a couple minutes at IFA 2014 to go hands-on with ...

    Samsung's latest feat of technological wizardry is the funky curved screen on the Galaxy Note Edge. While that may appeal to some, it really takes seeing it in action before the utility of the curved part of the screen can really be appreciated. We went hands-on with the Note Edge to help you see just how cool that new feature is... but we're right-handed. Most of the time, tech sites don't focus too much on the right- versus left-handed utility of devices. Other than power and volume buttons, smartphones and tablets are typically dominant-hand-agnostic. Once the device is on, the ...

    We just shared with you our hands-on look at Samsung's new Galaxy Alpha, remarking how IFA is a great venue to not just see the new products announced in Berlin this week, but also those the manufacturers here had launched in the days prior to the show. The Alpha is already a few weeks old, but Samsung's got another pre-IFA launch that's a bit newer, with the Gear S smartwatch having been announced a week ago Wednesday. With its compelling curved display, tracking this wearable down was a no-brainer, and we've filmed our run-in with the Gear S for you to check out. "Is it too big? It looks ...

    One of the best parts of going to expos like IFA is getting to see all a manufacturer's recent hardware. We realize that probably sounds more than a little obvious, but we mean that it's not always the products that are being launched right at the show itself that are there to be demonstrated - it's also a bunch of hardware that's launched in the weeks and months prior to the show, and for such models we otherwise haven't had the chance to try out before, these shows are fantastic opportunities to get caught up. That's just what we found ourselves doing at Samsung's booth, as we finally ...

    Samsung just unveiled the all new Galaxy Note 4 - the phablet that all other phablets aspire to beat. At least that's apparently what Samsung thinks, and wants the industry to believe. At its event, Samsung seemed to treat the Note 4 with much more care - and even reverence - than than it gave the Galaxy S brand. Currently Samsung holds its own with the Galaxy S, and it needs to expand. That's the key in this industry: expand, or die. If you're not making new products in new product lines, which helps to pull in new customers, you're not going to be around long. Samsung has been in ...

    Well, there's your left-fielder of the week. Samsung, hot off announcing the Galaxy Note 4, Note Edge, and Gear VR, has gone official today with a new tablet targeted toward businesses: the Galaxy Tab Active. The tablet employs a ruggedized yet compact design, taking after the Galaxy S5 Active in looks. The Galaxy Tab Active looks to deliver complete functionality for businesses, especially those which require devices to be quite rugged in order to survive daily work life, and has features like a removable battery to better accommodate those customers. There's an anti-shock covering to ...

    First of all, let me clear up that headline right away. Samsung's "new craziness" is meant as a compliment, not an insult. We need some craziness in the mobile technology world. Have you ever looked for a new phone on any of the carrier websites? They all look the same except with different pictures on the screens!  Anyway, Samsung itself recognized the original Note smartphone as a bit crazy. Most reviewers derided it as being way too big and too difficult to use, but customers didn't care what the reviewers thought and they bought it in droves anyway.  Today, Samsung is taking some ...

    Was it going to happen or not? For ages now we've heard rumors about a new look for the Note, with Samsung putting its experience with curved display technology to use and delivering a Galaxy Note whose screen seamlessly flowed right off the phablet's face, spilling over to the edges. Even in the days leading up to today's Unpacked 2 event, we were on the fence, not sure if this version would be announced at all, or maybe just teased for some distant launch date. Instead, we got some fantastic news as Samsung didn't just announce the Galaxy Note Edge, but revealed that sales will begin ...

    The first day of IFA announcements is upon us, and Samsung really set the high bar with its Unpacked 2 event and the launch of its latest phablets. Of course, we just had to go hands-on with both of those beauties, and while we'll get to the Galaxy Note Edge in just a moment, we're starting things off with the latest flagship in Samsung's phablet line, the Galaxy Note 4. While the LTE-A Galaxy S5 may have beaten it to the punch, this is the first time a Samsung phone is debuting to a worldwide audience with a quad HD display. The 5.7-inch screen delivers a better-than-500-ppi pixel ...

    New phones, tablets, and wearables are only half the fun of the product launches we see at events like IFA 2014, and beyond the big-ticket items themselves, we inevitably learn of dozens of new accessories tailored specifically for these models. Today's announcements have already delivered a nice assortment of add-ons, and with Samsung's Unpacked 2 event still fresh in our mind, we wanted to touch upon one of the classiest accessories to arrive so far, the special Montblanc stylus lineup for the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge. Samsung's S Pen stylus is already incredibly functional, ...

    ...maybe you don't want to compare the Note 4 with the Galaxy S5. Since you're looking at a Galaxy Note-class device, you're likely interested in a comparison with the previous generation phablet, the Note 3. Don't worry, we've got you covered. It was about this time last year, maybe a day or two shy, that Samsung introduced, at the same venue, in the same city, at the same show, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. As our special After the Buzz episode testifies, the Note 3 has aged well. So what's there to the Note 4, aside from being the hot novelty, that would make you buy it over the Note 3? ...
