    As the trial of Apple vs. Samsung continues today, we've already heard Apple's arguments as to why Samsung has benefited from the whole development process of building phones through Apple's experience with the iPhone. Obviously the next step was for Samsung to defend itself, and you'd think that Samsung would counter Apple's arguments during its opening statement, but the company insists that it's just a victim. As it turns out, Samsung's attorney Bob Quinn decided to pull out an old 2010 email written by Steve Jobs to his staff to address the battle between Apple and Google as the "Holy ...

    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 ...

    Samsung today announced that the company has managed to sell, from the supply side, a total number of 100,000,000 Galaxy S phones. This number aggregates all Galaxy S devices in the line-up, including the original Galaxy S introduced in May 2010, the Galaxy S II unveiled at the 2011 MWC, and the Galaxy S III announced at the 2012 London Unpacked event in May. Both the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy S III account for 40 million each, of the total announced, with the remaining 20 million representing sales for the original Galaxy S. According to Samsung, 190,000 Galaxy S III units are being ...

    I'm looking at a press release that flashed into my inbox this morning, a notice from AT&T that the company will soon be launching three new smartphones and a tablet. Surveying the list, it quickly becomes apparent that all of these newcomers have two things in common: they're all built by Samsung, and they all bear the word "Galaxy" in their names. That should come as a surprise to absolutely no one; Samsung has been using the celestial surname to denote its Android smartphone and tablet products for years. But as the South Korean OEM continues to flood the market with more and more ...

    While reviewing the Samsung Galaxy S III, and taking a look at the phone's display, we focused our critique on the use of PenTile subpixels, leading to blockier-looking graphics than we'd see with a traditional RGB arrangement. While that's a definite problem, the guys over at DisplayMate decided to take an even closer look at the GS3's screen, performing some very technical measures of its output, and comparing those figures against readings from the GS2 and original Galaxy S. They ended up with a whole bunch of useful observations, with one of the most interesting being a "poor" score ...

    Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero was appointed to oversee settlement talks between Apple and Samsung -- ordered by Judge Lucy Koh from the United States District Court for the Northern District of California -- over the course of two days on Monday and Tuesday, May 21 and 22. This might come as no surprise to you but the two giants have not reached an agreement, according to reports. Samsung's CEO Choi Gee-sung and Head of the firm’s Mobile Division, Shin Jong-kyun, were present at the meeting on behalf of the South Korean manufacturer and Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, represented the ...

    We started getting the first hints of work towards a new LTE network for US Cellular in late summer of last year, and just a couple months later the carrier made things official. We then had to wait until the start of February to learn of the first devices to grace the 4G network, when the carrier revealed that its launch plans consisted of first introducing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with LTE last month, followed by the release sometime in April of the Galaxy S Aviator as the first smartphone to run on the network. Today US Cellular announces the start of Aviator sales, going for as ...

    There was a real drama regarding the Ice Cream Sandwich update (or, to be more specific, the lack of) for the original Samsung Galaxy S and the manufacturer officially told the world that there will be a Value Pack instead of ICS, which later got leaked. The said Value Pack is now live for the Samsung Galaxy S (also for the Galaxy K and Galaxy U) in South Korea and it brings some Ice Cream Sandwich features to the phone, without the updated platform. Face recognition is there for Face Unlock, the ability to snap pictures while recording, and some Launcher features and improvements (such as ...

    Have you noticed how your Samsung smartphone charges faster if you are using the wall-charger that came with the phone than though other chargers? It's sometimes twice as fast! What's up with that? Most Samsung Galaxy phones (from the originals up through the Galaxy S II, and even the Galaxy Nexus and presumably the Galaxy S III) can charge at 750 to 800mA, but when charging over "generic" chargers, you'll likely only charge at 350mA. That's less than half as fast as the "official" chargers. One XDA-Developer wanted to know why, and found out the secret lies inside the "official" Samsung ...

    Back in September, Samsung announced its Galaxy S WiFi 3.6, a device that's essentially a Galaxy S without its cellular modem. While we're well used to seeing manufacturers offer tablets with this sort of configuration, it's a bit of a rarity for sub-five-inch devices (especially since we haven't seen a new iPod touch in years). We saw the handset make its international debut last fall, and now it's been revealed that the Galaxy S WiFi 3.6 will be seeing US release, as well. What good is aging Galaxy S hardware? Samsung sees the handset as a media player for people who don't already own a ...

    The original Samsung Galaxy S was wearing model numers i90xx while the manufacturer assigned the i91xx range for the second iteration, the Galaxy S II. The device pictured above is reportedly the GT-i9070, dubbed Samsung Galaxy S Advance. It looks to be a refresh of some sort for the original Galaxy S; the specs are a slight improvement over the GT-i9000 (but still lower than the Galaxy S II). The Galaxy Advance is believed to feature a 1GHz dual-core processor, four-inch Super AMOLED display of WVGA resolution and curved glass, five-megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p video recording ...

    If you've got a smartphone based on Samsung's Galaxy S platform (the Galaxy S itself, Captivate, or Vibrant), do we have a treat for you! "ICSSGS" is a pure AOSP Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for Galaxy S phones. The developers underscored the pure-AOSP nature of the ROMs: "We did not add any modifications unless they were absolutely required to make it work correctly." Currently three of the Galaxy S family have ICSSGS ROMs: - Samsung Captivate - Samsung Galaxy S i9000 - Samsung Vibrant The latter may be of particular interest to those who lost CyanogenMod support when the "E911 bug" was ...

    The situation of the Samsung Galaxy S, Ice Cream Sandwich update-wise, is rather interesting. Initially, Samsung said there will be no update because of TouchWiz, then the manufacturer backtracked and promised a "Value Pack" and later on retracted. Well, brace yourselves as the Samsung Galaxy S "Value Pack" seems to have leaked online in the form of a ROM. While still a Gingerbread ROM, you will be able to use Face Unlock and take pictures while recording a video. The only question remaining is whether Samsung is still working on the update or not. The build date is December 29, 2011, way ...
