    Samsung is on to something big with the Galaxy Note 4, and we're not just referring to its size. The device was highly praised by our team as we got some hands-on time with it at IFA in Berlin, and we'll admit it's one of the devices we're anticipating most for this holiday season. If you thought we were the only ones excited, think again, as it seems to be significantly delayed in certain parts of the world. Samsung had committed to have the Galaxy Note 4 arrive to customers in the UK on October 10, but it seems that those plans just got ditched. Samsung Mobile UK has just replied to a ...

    Nobody wants a broken smartphone, but accidents happen, hardware fails, and all it takes is some bad luck to leave us high and dry without a functional handset. In order to protect themselves against such disaster, plenty of phone users pick up insurance, replacement plans, extended warranties – any sort of service that helps cushion the blow of repair or replacements costs and gets a working phone back in their hands as soon as possible. Apple's got its AppleCare+, and today we learn of a similar service coming from Samsung, as the manufacturer begins selling its Protection Plus Mobile ...

    On the surface, it may seem like the HTC Desire EYE and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are entirely different beasts, but as it turns out... never mind, this really is no contest. We try to find just how large a spec gap lies between the two phones in our HTC Desire EYE vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4 specs comparison, right down below. Let us begin by first stating that there is only one category where the Desire EYE beats out the Note 4, and that's also the most obvious one: the front-facing camera. Seeing as though HTC's shoved a 13MP BSI sensor and dual-LED flash in the front of the Desire EYE, ...

    Samsung is definitely not having its best couple of quarters when it comes to its economics, but we wish this was the only drama the Korean giant faces right now. We've seen the continuous patent lawsuits that the company has lost against Apple, and we also know this is not the only lawsuit Samsung faces. NVIDIA is another company that's currently battling Samsung over patents, and some recent developments might complicate things even more. NVIDIA has recently announced that the ITC (US International Trade Commission) has voted to investigate whether certain of Samsung's recent devices ...

    After bending the Note 4 a week ago, because it can take it (and mostly because the iPhone 6 Plus can't take it: #bendgate), Samsung has officially published a Galaxy Note 4 drop test video on its YouTube channel. Fueled mostly by the success of its previous campaign showing off the durability of the phablet (or simply because it wants to show you just how tough it is), the smartphone in this video is repeatedly dropped from different heights and different angles. Whether it's concrete or solid granite, Samsung drops its phablet on it. The Note 4 drop test video also contains a nice ...

    In the last two years or so, one word in particular has become increasingly popular in this industry: flagship. Samsung’s new flagship this or that. What’s the best flagship of 2013? Is this new phone Company X's flagship? It gets tossed around endlessly, and practically every new high-end smartphone is considered a “flagship”. But what is a flagship, exactly? What does the term actually mean? Are we using it improperly and, thusly, altering its meaning in the mobile realm? According to Wikipedia, a flagship is "the best or most important thing owned or produced by a particular ...

    One of the many reasons the Galaxy Note line of products from Samsung is so popular is because of the S Pen, and all of the software features that are baked-in to TouchWiz allowing the stylus to serve as a useful productivity tool. With the Note 4's release, the list of features has become so long, that it was decided that a whole Samsung S Pen video was to be produced to help Note 4 owners (and soon-to-be owners) out with their new phone. You're walked through three features: Smart Select - Capture and Share, Smart Select - Link to related apps, and Photo Note. The former lets you capture ...

    Just over a month ago, Samsung revealed its Gear VR head-mounted display accessory for the Galaxy Note 4 at its pre-IFA Unpacked event. The headset, designed with help from Oculus VR, was announced without a ton of details concerning how it would go up for sale. We quickly picked up on a possible $200 price tag, but still lacked a timetable any more precise than that of a release planned before the year was out. But now as we move further into October, new leaks are arriving with new release details, and the one we're checking out today suggests plans to start selling the Gear VR on ...

    What does Apple and Samsung have in common? A lot, we know, but most recently, both companies are struggling with "gates". Apple's got its own #bendgate, while Samsung is trying to cope with #gapgate. However, Samsung, in its most recent social update, is showing off how the Galaxy Note 4 can take bends. The clip doesn't specifically call out Apple, and its iPhone 6 Plus problems (like previous Samsung ads heavily hinted towards the Cupertino-based company), but you get it anyways. Samsung bends a Note 4 in this video, using a three-point robot/machine that applies force to the middle of ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 is here, ready for you to go out and purchase. Well, that's true for certain smartphone shoppers, at least, if you happen to be living in the right nations. Last week we saw Samsung get an early start to Note 4 sales in Asia, bringing the phablet to South Korean carriers in advance of initial October release plans. That means that most of us are still waiting for the phone, but just how much longer do we have to go? This week, Samsung released the handy chart you see up top, breaking down Note 4 availability on a global scale. Admittedly, this isn't the best ...

    Yesterday morning we brought you news of an issue some new owners of the Galaxy Note 4 were taking with the construction of their phablets, pointing out the presence of a gap between the handset's front glass panel and the phone's frame. While more an aesthetic issue than anything, it was still troubling news for anyone not particularly looking forward to picking dust and grit out of those gaps. Now Samsung has spoken up about these concerns, and it doesn't seem to think there's anything to be worried about. The manufacturer insists that “the reported issue does not impact the ...

    It really does not seem like the best time right now to be a smartphone manufacturer. We're just coming off a week of news about Apple missteps, from reports of too-easy-to-bend iPhones to a phone-crippling iOS 8 update. Now it's Samsung's turn to take some heat, and as those early sales of the Galaxy Note 4 get underway in South Korea, new owners of the phablet are reporting some manufacturing issues of their own. So what's wrong with the Note 4? Users are complaining about the presence of rather substantial gaps between the edge of the handset's front panel and the phone's frame – gaps ...

    Last week we learned that South Korean carriers were anxious to get their sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 started a bit ahead of schedule, apparently in an effort to get ahead of the curve of expected iPhone 6 demand. Instead of waiting until October, we heard that they would open pre-orders last week, with aims of making the phablet available later this week. It looks like that plan is shaping up to be a success, as the three big South Korean carriers all report selling out of their pre-order stock. Granted, we're dealing with limited supplies to begin with (as each carrier was only ...

    Over the past couple days now we've had a number of opportunities to talk about Samsung's release plans for its new Galaxy Note models. First we were running some theories about possible Note Edge pricing, before hearing about an accelerated start to the Note 4's release in South Korea. Today we turn our attention to the US, instead, as Samsung formally the start of Note 4 pre-orders tomorrow, in advance of the phone's release on October 17. Samsung's announcement has subsequently prompted statements from a number of US carriers, who add to this story with the pricing info we've been ...
