    Unless you're into modding and customizing your devices to your liking, updates to your phone are almost never a bad thing, which means you'll be glad if you own either a Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, or Galaxy Mega on the nation's largest blue carrier. Learn what today's Samsung phone updates bring to the handsets below. While it would be nice indeed for the updates to bring Android 5.0 Lollipop, it's pretty unlikely that any of these are going to see that update anytime soon. Instead, these are merely enhancements to the Android 4.4.2 experience you'll already find when using the phone. The ...

    Samsung Galaxy S flagships aren't just smartphones: they're progenitors. From those single devices we see spring a whole family of related models, and this year should be no different for the Galaxy S5. We've been talking about it being joined by devices like a GS5 Mini or GS5 Neo, not to mention a quad HD GS5 Prime. Today we check out a new leak that attempts to firm-up details on a few of these models, while also setting us straight about another. We've already seen evidence pointing to the GS5 Mini being Samsung's model SM-G800, and the GS5 Prime arriving as SM-G906. This new leak ...

    As the leak suggested last month, owners of a Samsung Galaxy S 4 on Sprint's network were able to install the latest official Android 4.4.2 KitKat update on their phones starting February 13. Additionally, Note 3 owners on the Now Network joined the KitKat party on February 20, but now the carrier is publishing further details regarding Samsung phones and the 4.4.2 refresh. If you have a Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S 4 mini, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Mega, or a Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, you shouldn't worry, because Sprint is planning on updating these devices as well. While there is no  estimate of when ...

    Got a few hundred clams burning a hole in your pocket? Do you love absurdly oversized smartphone displays? Do you see no need for mobile devices to include a stylus in 2013? Then you, friend, have come to the right place. The subjects of today's Pocketnow comparison are not alien to us. Each is a positively massive smartphone featuring powerful media consumption capabilities. We’ve already separately reviewed both the HTC One max and the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, and we’ve also subjected them to innumerable comparisons - some worthwhile, some outrageous. But there's nothing quite so ...

    In the food service industry, when you're a server who's been slammed with too many customers and can't keep up with the demand, you're said to be "in the weeds." On a podcast, that same expression means something quite different. It means you've wandered so far from your intended topic (in this case, mobile technology) that you've found yourself in the far-flung wilderness talking about anything but (in this case, sports cars, British accents, and the adult film industry). But while we do spend a fair amount of time in OT land on today's Pocketnow Weekly, we still manage to get some tech ...

    Before we begin, we'd just like to say something to everyone who's going to call us out for click-baiting with that "Galaxy S 5" title: your allegations are completely founded and true. But look here: even though Galaxy S 5 rumors are (to say the least) premature and indicative of a serious problem with our nasty-fast industry -an issue we discuss on the air- they're also important. That's because, as unreliable and, frankly, stupid as they are, they also give us an opportunity to discuss the future of Samsung industrial design. And any opportunity we get to talk about the Galaxy family in ...

    Apparently Samsung wants to create a phone and/or tablet that's perfect for every person on the face of the planet -- even if that takes 7 billion different models. Okay, that may be a bit of an over-statement, but honestly! Samsung, can't you do something about your runaway screen sizes? The Galaxy Note II has a diagonal screen measurement of 5.5-inches. That's a pretty big "phone". It's so big, in fact, that we had to coin a new term to describe it: the "phablet" -- part phone, part tablet. It's a strange beast, but it ends up working pretty well, as long as your hands are big enough. We ...

    It seems Android smartphone superstar Samsung won't be happy until it offers a Galaxy device at every possible screen size and price point. That's a trend we've been commenting on for a while, but we're not talking about brand dilution or new product categories today. The Galaxy product line seems in no danger of foundering under the weight of its wide selection, and the latest products out of Seoul aren't exactly blazing a new trail in form factor. They're phablets -phone/tablet hybrids- through and through. We're talking about the new behemoths on the Android playground, natch: the duo ...

    We've been hearing a lot about the Samsung Galaxy Mega lately but for those in the market for a jumbo-phone the South Korean manufacturer has just announces its latest additions to the Galaxy line-up, the Mega with two screen sizes: 6.3-, and 5.8-inches.

    Sometimes you just have to schedule a podcast a few hours before a major news event, and as a result you've got to scramble to come up with some valid-sounding speculation about just how useful a Facebook Phone could really be. It's not like we haven't tossed this notion around before, but doing it on the air, off-the-cuff, imbues our lives with a certain energy, a certain je ne sais quoi, if you will. Or even if you won't. Whatever; we have a good time riffing. You'll listen and like it! Ahem. All that, plus some chat on just how big a copycat LG's Optimus G Pro is - and how well it does ...

    Those of you wondering which of the two screen sizes rumored for the next Galaxy Note was real, well it turns out both might become a reality. For the longest time the web has been full of rumors of a 5.9-inch or 6.3-inch Galaxy Note III, but now we've got new leaks talking about a new brand of phablets coming to Samsung dubbed the Galaxy Mega line-up. Yes, this is not just one device, one phablet is the Galaxy Mega 5.8, which gets is name because of the 5.8-inch display rumored, as opposed to the 5.9-inch display rumored on the Note III. Then we've got the Galaxy Mega 6.3, which just ...
