Following an epileptic opening ceremony and a melodious collage of national anthems to follow along with the Olympic spirit, Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy Note 7.
Company president Dongjin Koh calls it the “world’s most intelligent smartphone” and an entry into the fastest growing category of such phones: the phablet.
Big points about the Note 7 were presented before the phone was even announced like the iris scanner, — with applications for keeping parents’ children safe (and vice versa) along with mobile banking — the device’s [...]
You know the drill. A new phone launches. We all go crazy with commentary and videos for a couple weeks. Then, we all move on to the next new phone. How a phone ages is an important part of discussing smartphone performance. Let’s revisit a fan favorite. This phone is a beast. This phone is a tank. This phone is a monster.
LG was in an odd spot following the launch of the G Flex 2. Performance concerns surrounding the Qualcomm 810 eclipsed the discussion on both HTC and LG at the beginning of 2015. Following that debacle, LG’s next phones, the G4 and V10, both [...]
In addition to pulling the covers off of LG’s Nexus 5X, Google made official its Nexus phablet entry for the year, the Nexus 6P. It’s built by Huawei and certainly packs the innards to be a 2015 flagship. From its weirdo headpiece on the back containing its camera to the full body metal trim, this thing’s definitely a looker — for good or bad reason.
But with the size and specs come a premium — the 32GB storage option comes in at $499, 64GB will cost you $549 and the 128GB model comes in at $599. It definitely costs less than comparable flagships from Apple and [...]
We’ve praised Samsung’s Galaxy Note series of phablets time and time and time again. There’s just something about what it does with a slab and a stick that makes using a phone all the more fun and productive. We’ve seen rivals leap out of the woodwork with try-hard wannabe Notes, but they haven’t had as much traction with keeping up the battle for prestige. Well, if we’re hearing correctly from parts manufacturers today, enter Huawei with its own “Note” effort.
The original Ascend Mate, keep in mind, also had a stylus — it just [...]
If the Galaxy Note 5 and its S Pen aren’t quite your style, maybe a dual edge will do the trick. It’s easy to just call the S6 edge+ a blown up Galaxy S6 edge and call it a day, but is that really the case? Well, in a lot of ways, yes.
The design, while bigger, is nearly identical to the original S6 edge, with the trademark curved glass on both sides of the screen, and the same all-glass and aluminum casing. It’s fragile, sure, but the S6 edge and edge+ are some of the best-looking handsets around, and despite having ultra-thin sides to hold on to, the edge+ is still reasonably [...]
