Last January, when I attended CES, Samsung was bragging that it was going to bring Milk VR to their Smart TVs, and I had heard that the people who make the The Walking Dead series would be preparing it. It looks like some of this is happening, as there will be Gone. Gone is an interactive story which is about a daughter who disappears in the daylight. There is a lot of … [Read more...] about Samsung and Skybound Entertainment Presents VR movie Gone
Remember when I talked about how LG was making a very, very, very thin TVs? Well, it appears that Samsung, their competitor, has some plans for some other unusual televisions. These displays are both transparent, as well as mirror-type. It doesn't look like Samsung wants to market these for the average user, but it can be used as ad billboards as well as a possible … [Read more...] about Samsung unveils mirrored and transparent displays
At a recent Developer Conference from Samsung, the big S unveiled the Gear VR Innovator Edition. As you can see, it looks a lot like the Oculus Rift that I was raving about so much at PAXPrime this year. The GEAR VR Innovator is powered by Oculus, but it does not have its own screen. It is made to pair with the Galaxy Note 4, and it is made for the smartphone's 5.7-inch … [Read more...] about Samsung Unveils the Gear VR Innovator Edition
It has been over a year since we first reported on the Samsung Mega. The company has recently unveiled the Galaxy Mega 2, and AT&T will be the carrier. The first Mega came in two screen sizes, but this one is a 6-inch screen with 720 x 1020 pixel resolution. Other features include an 8 Megapixel rear camera with a 4X zoom, with a 2,800 mAh battery. The Mega 2 has … [Read more...] about Samsung unveils the Galaxy Mega 2
The Galaxy S series might have some...friendly rivalry, as Samsung has revealed its newest smartphone, the Alpha. I will say that I like the new aesthetic with the metal frame as well as a soft back cover. The metallic construction is the biggest new feature. Another possibly new feature is an octa-core which is a quad 1.8GHz and quad 1.3GHz or quad-core 2.5GHz … [Read more...] about Samsung unveils the Galaxy Alpha
I've been with the Samsung Galaxy S3 for about a year and a half, and I had a brief fling with the Galaxy S4. I finally have upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy S5, and I can honestly say that it is a worthy successor to the S5. This is not to say that the S4 was not good, but it was only a small step up from the S3. Of course, it is unusual for a new version of a phone to be a … [Read more...] about My Review of the Samsung Galaxy S5
I think we all know that Apple and Samsung are kind of like Frememies. I believe that Apple is always suing Samsung for stealing their ideas, and I can't honestly give an unbiased view here. After all, practically every smartphone (not just the ones that Samsung makes) looks just like the iPhone since its release in 2007. As you can see in this image here, Apple took out … [Read more...] about Apple to Samsung: Copy this, please!
Well, if you didn't read the last two posts, then you would know that Barcelona, Spain is the site of Mobile World Congress, a big mobile phone convention. Not only has Samsung announced the Galaxy S5, but they have unveiled a trio of smartwatches with the Galaxy Gear 2, Gear Neo, and the Gear Fit. The Galaxy Gear 2, as its name implies, is essentially a sequel to the … [Read more...] about Samsung unveils the Gear 2, Gear Neo, and Gear Fit smartwatches
I suppose that we all knew that this was coming, since the Galaxy S III and S IV were such hits, it only stands to reason that an S5 would be showing up soon. Especially in the light of Mobile World Congress, the annual mobile phone show in Barcelona, Spain. So what can be expected from the S5? I'll start with the most obvious difference, the larger screen. It is 5.1 … [Read more...] about Samsung announces the Galaxy S5 Unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2014
For some reason, there appears to be some odd trend towards curved screens. In smartphones, LG has the Flex, and Samsung has the GALAXY ROUND. I suppose that it just makes sense to have televisions with curved screens, and Samsung has them. At least, they will have one at CES 2014. If you aren't familiar with CES, it is a big electronics trade show that happens every … [Read more...] about Samsung to unveil the largest curved screen at CES 2014
Okay, you might remember when I discussed the Armpocket i-35 armband, and how it can hold the Galaxy Note 3. This was important to me because I wanted to try it out for myself. Let me start by saying that the Galaxy Note 3 is so feature-rich that I can't possibly describe them all. I will try to summarize the features by saying that it is really helpful to have a … [Read more...] about Galaxy Note 3 Review
Okay, I am about to implement a new strategy that I want all of my readers to try. I know that we all laugh when some prediction passes us by without it occurring. If you don't believe me, then you weren't alive in 1984. I want you to Bookmark this article so you can refer to it at the end of the year 2015. Why? Because I want to be around and say that I saw that … [Read more...] about Samsung to have Ultra HD foldable phones by 2015?
Some of you might remember yesterday when we discussed LG and their flexible screens, and here is another historical moment, this time for Samsung. The GALAXY ROUND is the first curved display, and it has a 5.7 inch super AMOLED curved display. Now, I don't know why one might need a curved display, but there is some interesting features like Roll Effect to check on … [Read more...] about Samsung unveils the GALAXY ROUND with a curved display
I have recently learned that Samsung Ventures America has recently given about $4 million to PowerbyProxi. If you have not heard of this company, it essentially allows multiple devices to be charged on one place. I was sort of hoping that Samsung would get in on this. After all, Nokia has their cool wireless charging features on their phones, so it is about time that Samsung … [Read more...] about Samsung getting into PowerbyProxi, about 4 million dollar’s worth
I've been wanting to review the Samsung Galaxy S IV for a long time now, and I received it a few weeks ago. It took me a while to try out the features, and I can't help to compare it to the Galaxy S III. I will start with the Multi-Window, an interesting feature that allows for running of many apps at once. It reminds me of the Palm Pre, and I wish I could put more on … [Read more...] about Finally, a review of the Galaxy S IV smartphone
