    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? ...

    With the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 already official -- as Samsung's historical second flagship of any given year in the recent past -- many of you might be wondering whether to go for the new and hot device, or stick with the flagship. Of course, the answer can be very easy if you care about screen size: if you prefer bigger, the Note 4 should be your option; if you prefer smaller, the S 5 should be just what you need. What if you don't care about the display size as much as you do about the internals packed behind the glass? Both of these devices are fast, and future proof enough to last you ...

    The day many of you (and us) have been waiting for has arrived. Samsung has finally unveiled its second flagship for 2014, the Galaxy Note 4 phablet. As it has historically done so in the past, the Unpacked event happened a tad earlier, before the official start of the International Radio Show in Berlin. Those waiting to see a brand new design will be slightly disappointed, while those who preferred the looks of the Note 3 (and previous models), will be happy that there aren't any major changes. You'll have to check out the Galaxy Note Edge for that. However, we're here to look at the ...

    The Note 4 and Note Edge may be the big new handsets emerging from Samsung's Unpacked event at IFA 2014, but they're not alone. We've also been picking up on leaks pointing to a virtual reality accessory going back months now, and on the stage in Berlin this afternoon, Samsung has gone ahead and formally announced its Gear VR headset. Gear VR connects with the Galaxy Note 4, which stands-in as the headset's display. It docks in place up front, offering its high-resolution quad HD screen to form the images for the VR's lenses. Samsung brought Oculus VR's John Carmack on stage to explain ...

    Samsung's latest Unpacked event is upon us, when promises of new hardware finally make that all-important step from the shadowy world of leaks and rumors to the clear daylight of confirmation. With such high-profile hardware on the line, let's waste no more time in getting to the big news: Samsung has formally introduced not just the Galaxy Note 4, but also the rumored wrap-around-screen Galaxy Note Edge. As expected, the Note 4 sports a 5.7-inch quad HD display, and Samsung was quick to point out the extended color gamut offered by its AMOLED nature. The handset's design takes some cues ...

    It's really tough to get me excited about a new smartwatch from Samsung. That's not necessarily because of the company's earlier efforts, : I stood up for the original Galaxy Gear and enjoyed it much more than did most of my fellow tech reviewers, and I even bought and used a Gear Fit for a short time, preferring its futuristic and lightweight build to the clunky first-gen Pebble I'd adopted a year before. Rather, my antipathy to new Samsung smartwatches stems from the fact that the company's first effort landed exactly one year ago, and we're already on iteration five. That's a ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Note line started as a bit of a test of the market. At the time, everyone was used to phones that we'd consider today as fairly small, so the idea of a 5.3-inch phone scared us – so much so, that we even invented the word "phablet" for it. It grew into a widely popular line, though, and launches of new models have since become staples of the IFA trade show. We're right on the eve of the announcement of the next in a line of fairly successful phones, so we decided to go through the long list of rumors we've heard about the phone and compile it all into one Samsung ...

    On August 27, Samsung announced the Gear S, a smartwatch we're expecting to meet in person at the upcoming IFA 2014, a smartwatch that supports 3G on your wrist, with the help of a SIM card slot. The two-inch curved Super AMOLED display give it a unique touch, while the smartwatch itself comes with a flexible band out of the box. However, today Samsung announced an extension of its partnership with Swarovski, for the "Swarovski for Samsung" collection, which now contains the newly announced Gear S. It's about a Gear S strap, for those of you who love your bling-blings visible; you can now ...

    Samsung has done a fantastic job at keeping us at the edge of our seats with the Galaxy Note 4 announcement at IFA. The company's recent advertisement focused on reminding us why the Galaxy Note lineup matters, and what we can expect for the future. One of the biggest upgrades that we're expecting to see with the Galaxy Note 4 is in its camera, and even though we still don't have any leaked Galaxy Note 4 samples, there are some that come close. Lenovo has just launched the Vibe Z2 in Asia, and if you're wondering why this has anything to do with the Galaxy Note 4, well, the answer will ...

    We're just days away from Samsung's Unpacked IFA event, where the Note 4 will take the stage to reveal itself before the waiting public. And to help make sure the crowd is suitably pumped-up, Samsung's been dropping Note 4 teaser video after Note 4 teaser video, going back more than a week now. At first they were very non-specific, just conjuring up memories of the Note line in general, but then the next wave of clips started mentioning the Note 4 by name. Yesterday, Samsung did one better, and in another stylus-focused video, depicts its iconic S Pen sliding into what we can only assume ...
