    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? ...

    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 ...
