.@SamsungMobileUS Is Unveiling The Newest Galaxy Device Next Month In NYC

July 28th, 2015 by Tech Staff

Samsung will unveil the latest version of its Galaxy Note phablet series and maybe a few more additions to the Galaxy family on August 13th.

 

Samsung Galaxy

 

Unpacked 2015 will kick off next month, taking place at the Lincoln Center in New York. Samsung Mobile has traditionally shown off its newest Galaxy Note models in September, with the devices going on sale later that month, but it looks to be moving things up in the schedule to gain a first mover advantage over Apple — which finally moved into the phablet segment when it launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ last year — as rumors had earlier suggested.

Beyond the newest Galaxy Note, Samsung could well shell out a larger version of the curvy Galaxy S6 Edge — which is tentatively know as the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, according to some fairly extensive leaked photos. Which could prove that Samsung is going all out to dominate the larger smartphone segment, I mean, they are the originators of selling the successful phablet to the masses, remember?

Not in NYC? You can still be apart of all the action, @DivasandDorks will be in the building sharing all the announcements and first hand looks live on Periscope.  You will also be able to tune in to the August 13 event via Samsung Mobile’s YouTube channel too.

First Impressions: iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S6

April 23rd, 2015 by Christen

iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S6

Let’s get ready to rumble!  I recently got my hand on the Samsung Galaxy S6 (Thanks to the good folks at Verizon Wireless) and I have been excited to check out the uncanny similarities (and differences) between the iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S6.   As an early android adopter (I was the captain of team Android and even scored a cool trip as an ambassador to the 2012 London Olympics) I’m always curious to see just how competitive Apple and Android devices can be.  (Honestly, this is a healthy competition, that at the end the consumers win!)

We’re all about our smartphones and how they enhance our day-to-day activities, so you know I can’t wait to share my favorite user experiences with both devices, but until then, check out this head-to-head comparison and my first impressions of the iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 below.

 

iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S6

 

Displays: Great Meets Greater

  • Galaxy S6 – 5.1-inch QHD flat panel, 2560 x 1440 pixels, 577 pixels per inch (ppi), Super AMOLED display
  • iPhone 6 – 4.7-inch, 1334 x 750 pixels, 326 ppi, LED-backlit IPS LCD

 

Both screens can get incredibly bright; however, the fact is the Galaxy S6 takes what the iPhone 6 display is good at: brightness, contrast and colours and cranks it up to a whole new level.

 

iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S6

 

Internals:  Let’s Talk Performance

  • Galaxy S6 – Samsung Exynos 7420 – CPU: Quad-core 2.1GHz and 1.5GHz CPUs; GPU: Mali-T760, 3GB RAM
  • iPhone 6 – Apple A8 – CPU: Dual-core 1.4 GHz Cyclone; GPU: PowerVR GX6450, 1GB RAM

 

iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S6

 

Smile For The Camera:  Camera Specs

  • Galaxy S6 – 16 megapixel sensor, F1.9 lens, OIS, autofocus, LED flash – 4k video recording. Front: 5 megapixel sensor, F1.9 lens
  • iPhone 6 – 8 megapixel sensor, F2.2 lens, DIS, Focus Pixels, dual-LED flash – 1080p video recording. Front: 1.2 megapixel sensor, F2.2 lens

 

The 4k video feature on the Samsung Galaxy S6 is really appealing (especially since I’m trying to step up my YouTube game) But I’ll admit, using my iPhone to film is incredibly easy and has great picture quality as well.  (I think a quality comparison test is in the works soon…)

 

iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S6

All About That Bass:  Speaker Comparison

Sounds come through loud and clear with both bottom facing speakers (however, they don’t compare to the HTC front facing speakers).  Don’t expect too much in the bass department though.  If you’re all about that bass, there’s a wide assortment of Bluetooth speakers for that.

 

iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S6

 

Everyone knows that the iPhone 6 will cost you a pretty penny, but did you know that (without contract) the Galaxy S6 is priced even higher:

  • Galaxy S6: $699 (32GB), $799 (64GB) and $899 (128GB)
  • iPhone 6: $649 (16GB), $749 (64GB) and $849 (128GB)

 

These are just a few of my initial impresions and I can’t wait to follow up and give you more of my thoughts and experiences with both the iPhone 6 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 soon!  Do you have an iPhone 6 or Samsung Galaxy S6? Share your thoughts! Love it? Hate it? Drop your comments below and let us know!

The Samsung 105” super ultra high def TV stole the show hands down.  It’s the world’s first and largest HDTV that curves at the touch of a button. For such a novel TV, Samsung put out all the stops, including 4K resolution, quantum-dot technology for improved color and its Tizen-powered smart-TV platform.  There is no price or ship date yet, although last year’s model cost about $260,000.

Now Playing: Hands On With Samsung Note 4 and Gear VR [VIDEO]

September 30th, 2014 by Christen

Samsung Note 4 and Gear VR

 

Have you heard about the new Galaxy Note 4? It’s the productivity-powered phablet with processing power, screen resolution and a stylus to make any other phone or tablet jealous.  Recently I caught up with the great folks at Samsung to check out the new Note 4 and Gear VR during a media preview event.

The Note 4 is not your ordinary smartphone and when paired with the Gear VR – wireless virtual reality fun is within your reach!  Check out the full demo of the Note 4 and Gear VR below.

 

 

 

Interested in getting your hands on the Note 4 and Gear VR?  US carriers will start selling the Note 4 on October 17, (But you can preorder the new device as early as today!) AT&T’s Note 4 will sell for $300 on-contract (Off-contract, it’ll cost $825.99.) Verizon pricing comes down to $300 on contract, $35 per month over 20 months, or $700 full retail.

T-Mobile will sell it for $749.76, or $31.24 per month for 24 months. Sprint’s pricing is $350 with a new, two-year service agreement, or $30 a month for 24 months, or $720 all told.

Samsung’s Gear VR will be the first consumer-grade virtual reality available for purchase. The device is really just a fancy accessory for the Note 4, but it acts as a prelude to the Oculus Rift—a virtual reality headset that connects to your PC. Reception to the Gear VR should give us some sense of whether we’re on the verge of the virtual reality revolution that many anticipate the Oculus Rift and the Gear VR will usher in. The two devices are also closely related as OculusVR collaborated with Samsung to create the Gear VR.

Want to get hands on with Gear VR?  You can find demo headsets at Samsung Experience Shops inside Best Buy today!
