    In the tablet space, Samsung is a quickly growing giant. Almost single-handed, Samsung has cut Apple's tablet market share in half – from over 60 percent in 2012 to 30 percent in Q1 this year – while snapping up 23 percent of the global tablet share in Q1. We never had any doubt this would be the case, even with how half-baked the first two or three generations of its tablets were. Take the original Galaxy Tab, for example. It was a 7-inch knee-jerk reaction to the iPad. It ran Android, of course, but it was a stretched version of the phone-based OS. Google had not yet developed a home ...

    Putting Samsung's new Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 up against some of its competition from other manufacturers (not to mention other platforms) let us get a quick sense of how it fits into the greater tablet landscape, but what about existing Samsung tablets? How does this new batch compare to devices Samsung's brought to market over the past several months? The last big Samsung tablet to ship was this year's edition of the Galaxy Note 10.1, arriving back in October, and with 3GB of RAM, an Exynos of its own, and another high-res 2560 x 1600 display, it sure sounds capable of giving these new tablets ...

    Samsung has more going for it than arguably any other company in the mobile space right now. It's very nearly usurped Google as the name consumers associate with Android, and while its precise share of the market ebbs and flows, no one's even close to competing with it on the same level – well, Apple, sure, if we're looking at the US, but globally, Samsung's an unstoppable force. And there are plenty of reasons why Samsung deserves to be enjoying the success it is; even though we might have been won over by the HTC One this year, the Galaxy S series of phones continues to be one of the ...

    Most of us in this industry get asked a lot of questions from people in the market to buy new mobile products. "Which smartphone is the best current deal?" "Should I get this phone or that one?" "Which is the best tablet to buy?" But of all the questions I've been asked in my four years of service to the mobile tech media, there is one question that is inherently more difficult to answer than others: "Should I buy a small or full-sized tablet?" The question is difficult to answer to begin with because … who actually needs a tablet? Should anyone buy a tablet to begin with? Of course, ...

    In the tablet space, there are two giants who others seemingly can't touch: Samsung and Apple. Both firms have recently released flagship models, the Galaxy Note 10.2 2014 Edition and iPad Air. And we've now reviewed both. These two slabs may be geared towards different types of users, but a comparison was inevitable. The new Galaxy Note 10.1, with its S Pen and multitasking software, specifically targets those who need a tablet for productivity and getting work done on the go. While the iPad may also appeal to those very same consumers, it's paired with one of the most expansive digital ...

    Samsung has a lot of great things going for it right now. It's absolutely dominating the Android smartphone and tablet space. And although its software is heavily criticized for being bloated and, for the most part, a major waste of internal storage space, its devices bring a level of functionality few others can master. That additional functionality is due in large part to both hardware and software components. The S Pen, for one, allows for more comfortable use and acts as an extension of your finger. It also now comes with its own software suite, Air Command, which brings things like ...

    Tablets have, up to this point, been mostly a compromise. They promise to offer extended functionality over their smaller smartphone counterparts. Yet the sheer portability (read: lack of keyboard and peripherals) comes at the sacrifice of the level of utility provided by a laptop or ultrabook. It's the catch-22 Android-powered tablets are perpetually caught in. Samsung aims to fix that, at least in the best way possible without using a full-fledged operating system. Enter the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. It's Samsung's latest addition to the increasingly popular Galaxy Note ...

    Samsung is the undisputed Android king. Its Galaxy branded smartphones and tablets have almost entirely saturated the market, and rightly so. It provides quality and value proposition few others seem to have the capacity to replicate. The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is the latest addition to the lineup, and it's unquestionably one of the best tablets around. The question is: can Sony's much-praised, water resistant tablet, the Xperia Tablet Z, compare with Samsung's latest and greatest? We put the both under the proverbial microscope in a head to head battle. Watch the 2014 Galaxy Note ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Note tablets are among the best tablets money can buy. Not only do they often bear the best specifications around, they also come with tons of value proposition in the form of unique software and hardware geared towards utility, multitasking, and productivity. Most notably, features like Multi-Window and the S Pen are part of what define the Galaxy Note series and make them so alluring. Which of Samsung's most recent Galaxy Note tablets is the best, however? That's what we aim to find out. We put the latest Note 10.1 up against the smaller Note 8.0. Watch the 2014 Galaxy ...

    Samsung is unquestionably capable of making some compelling tablets – Android and Windows alike. Last year, the Nexus 10 was widely considered one of the best Android tablets available. Its display was one of the best tablet displays around. And it ran the purest form of Android possible. This year, Samsung's penchant for tablets is just as strong as ever. And the latest addition to its lineup is the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. With 3GB RAM, the same resolution display, S Pen, TouchWiz's multitasking software, and the Exynos Octa chipset, is the Note 10.1 2014 Edition enough to take ...

    There comes a time when you just gotta do what the readers want. Particularly when their demands are awesome. You tweeted, you pleaded, you emailed, you told us in person at trade shows and during mildly creepy public run-ins: "have Marques Brownlee on the Weekly!" you demanded. And after weeks of dancing around schedules, overseas trips, and major product releases, we've finally managed to make it happen. For the first time in recorded history, MKBHD and Pocketnow have collaborated to bring you two full hours of audio-podcast goodness. That sounds a lot more grandiose than three guys ...

    Samsung has released several high-end smartphones in the last year with monster specifications. Yet all its tablets have been lacking that special ingredient to set them apart from the masses. They all sported low-end displays, year-old chipsets, and less than stellar build quality. This year, Samsung stepped upped its game with the Galaxy Note series, alleviating all doubt that the Note lineup is anything but high-end. The 10.1-inch 2014 model of the Galaxy Note bears some of the best specifications we've seen in a tablet to date: a 10.1-inch 2,560 by 1,600 pixel resolution LCD display, ...

    Twitter is synonymous with brevity, so it's not entirely surprising that its creators have struggled with how best to bring an experience built around 140-character messages to larger tablet screens. It's been a long time coming, but today Twitter for Android tablets has finally become available... for some users, at least. The problem is that the new tablet Twitter has launched as an exclusive for the 2014 edition of Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1. Pre-orders for the tablet got underway last month, but it's taken until today for the hardware to actually arrive. Now that it's here, this new ...

    Samsung's September 4 Unpacked event from the IFA in Berlin brought us the Galaxy Gear smartwatch and the Galaxy Note 3, sure, but don't forget the tablet Samsung also came to show off, this year's Galaxy Note 10.1 refresh. With hardware like an Exnyos 5 Octa, 3GB of RAM (just like the Note 3), and that very high-res 2560 x 1600 screen, this sure sounded like one heck of a capable tablet. Following its unveiling, all that was left was for Samsung to make with the details on just how we'd finally be able to get our hands on the model. Today it does just that, sharing news of the Note 10.1 ...

    We've been bringing you our best quality mobile-tech podcast once a week for over a year now, and we're not about to break that streak on one of the biggest tech weeks of the year. Sure, we might've missed our usual Wednesday/Thursday time slot, and we might've even technically missed the weekend dividing line, depending on what time zone you're in - but you know what? We've just capped off four days of intense video coverage with a midnight podcast from one of the most echo-filled hotel rooms in all of Berlin, and we're uploading it through the technological equivalent of a 1999-era AOL ...
