If you thought that the Galaxy S 4 was just a raging success during its first month of sales at 10 million units, the company has new numbers that continue to surprise. Sure, selling 9 million iPhones in a weekend is a crazy amount for its competitors, but the fact that Apple didn’t report on their sales during the first couple of weeks is an indicator that things aren’t necessarily as perfect for them as they are for Samsung.
See, the Korean giant has now reported that they’ve sold 40 million Samsung Galaxy S 4s in just six months, and for any company to [...]

You’d wonder how smart a smartwatch really is if you really can’t pair it with more devices than just one, and ever since Samsung launched the Galaxy Gear, one of our biggest complaints was that we simply couldn’t use it on most of the existing and popular Galaxy smartphones in the market. Android 4.3 is required for the Galaxy Gear to work, and that’s rather unfortunate since Samsung hasn’t really been famous for timely updates in the last two years. If you wanted to use that Galaxy Gear, you were really forced to buy a Galaxy Note 3 along with it, and [...]
Samsung has not been famous for their software updates this year, or at least not as famous as they were with their Galaxy S II line-up. All their 2012 line-up of devices is still stuck on early versions of Android 4.1, and this has proven to be quite annoying for most of the people who trusted Samsung with their new Galaxy line-up.
Still, it seems that the company is doing things differently now, but for the benefit of those who upgraded and not those who waited. Android 4.3 has already begun to roll out to the LTE international variant of the Galaxy S 4 (I9505) yesterday, and [...]

These are the two best selling smartphones in the world, and they are also the dilemma that many of you are currently facing. Should I get the new Galaxy or the new iPhone? Some people still debate whether they should get plastic or aluminum, or if they should get a bigger or a smaller phone. Some are still on the ropes considering if Android or iOS should be the basis of their pic, and others if the 13 megapixel camera on the Galaxy S 4 is still worth comparing with the iPhone 5S’ bigger 8 megapixels.
Well that’s what we’re here for, let’s find out which [...]
