  1. Samsung overwatch website SamMobile presented us with a juicy leak which firmly suggests that a "premium" version of Samsung's Galaxy S5 flagship phone is in an advanced development stage. It is arguably the most detailed look at the unannounced, and previously denied device to date. The leak begins by reinforcing the rumors that the Galaxy S5 shipped with a 1080p display due to production problems with the QHD-equipped version. Originally, the S5 was being prototyped with a 2K display, but this version was abandoned in its third revision, which is pretty early in the phone's development cyc
  2. Part of the pleasure, or fun, of owning a high-end smartphone is finding out all of the little things that it can do. Samsung, for example, shoehorned some hidden features into the Samsung Galaxy S5. The latest iteration of Sammy's flagship Android phone has been available for a week and some owners of the device might have already discovered some of these hidden goodies. First of all, the Samsung Galaxy S5 doesn't come with S-Pen. But why bother with such a high tech writing instrument when a regular low-tech pencil will do the trick. All you need to do is go to the Display Settings and en
  3. After being caught paying for false praise and negative comments about competitors, Samsung has been fined just over $340,000. The issue first arose internationally in April, when Taiwan's Fair Trade Commission (FTC) announced it was opening an investigation into the allegations. That investigation found the allegations were true: the FTC says Samsung used a "large number of hired writers and designated employees" to post in Taiwanese forums. The commission does add that the company did this through a third-party marketing company, just as Samsung originally claimed. Two local marketing firms

    Galaxy S2 Problem

    Hello Nsane, So I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 phone and I am having this frustrating problem. It's like this, my android is on the table and i press the Home Button to check for any notifications and I realize it's off so I Long Press the Power Button to turn it on nothing happens. The only way to turn it on is by removing the battery and putting it back again and then Long Pressing the Power Button will turn my S2 on. I honestly don't know what is causing this, if it is a hardware or a software problem. It's very annoying because sometime awaiting for an important call while your android is dead
  5. Samsung started its first developer conference this week in San Francisco and while talk of Android filled the air, Samsung also made sure that Tizen had a presence too. Most of the talk about Tizen took place between scheduled talks, amongst developers. The main focus of the conference was to push developers to make Android apps unique to Samsung models. One analyst sees this all being done in preparation for the day that Tizen is made available, to show developers that Samsung can take care of them even when they start writing for the OS developed by Samsung and Intel. This way, the
  6. Samsung promised at its Mobile UNPACKED Episode 2 event that it will start rolling out Galaxy S4 updates in October and we are very pleased that Samsung has kept their promise. As Samsung has just started rolling out Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) update to the Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505). Samsung is always a bit late with updating its devices to the latest version of Android but always manages to delivers the most bug free and stable software after a ton of R&D. Also, Samsung is the only OEM which gives its older devices the latest version of Android even after completing the usual 18 month update c
  7. Samsung have been falling over themselves making different statements to users about the controversial region-locking of the Note 3, now they may extend this to older devices such as the Galaxy S3. Last week we reported on the unpopular move made by Samsung to region-lock the Galaxy Note 3, and since then Samsung have attempted to clarify the move with even more confusing statements to the press and customers on the issue. One Samsung official said that if the Note was activated "the right way" in the region it was purchased, then sim cards from other regions could be used in the device; which
  8. The Galaxy S5 – could be set to arrive as soon as January. If true, it would be a real break away from the spring-summer launches we’ve witnessed these past couple of years, and would leave Galaxy S4 users feeling more short-changed than they perhaps already do. The report arrives courtesy of Korean publication Naver, and suggests that the rushed release is a result of the Galaxy S 4 not shifting as many units as Samsung had anticipated. The device will, according to the report, be showcased in January of next year, with the release to consumers taking place in February. In terms of specs, th
  9. A mere handful of hours after press images of a purported curved device from Samsung leaked out, the manufacturer has released initial details on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Round. The device packs a 5.7-inch 1080p display just like the Galaxy Note 3, but this one has a not-so-subtle curve to the entire device that distinguishes it from other "flat" phones. Samsung says that it has also developed new software experiences to take advantage of the curved design such as tilting the phone while it's sitting on a table to check notifications, battery life and the time. Throughout the interface Sam
  10. Samsung is bringing the Galaxy S4 mini to the United States next month, where it'll be sold on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular. While pricing hasn't been announced, it's safe to assume that — like the Galaxy S III mini — it'll be offered as a less expensive option to the flagship smartphone from which the device gets its name. Between the value of the Galaxy S4's branding and the appeal of what'll presumably be a lower price, it's easy to imagine that the S4 mini will find some success when it debuts in the US. It is a distinctly lower-end smartphone though, having an older processo
  11. China Telecom currently enjoys a great working relationship with Samsung. The two companies have often partnered together to bring varying devices to the Chinese market and it isn’t any great secret that the telecom company is a big fan of luxury Samsung flip devices. If you like something and it works for you and your customers, then it makes perfect sense to continue the trend, which is exactly what has happened again as China Telecom and Samsung have introduce the new SCH-W2014 clamshell phone during a charity concert in Nanjing. The annual Heart Of The World concert may not be de
  12. the Apple iPhone 5s beat out rivals like the Samsung Galaxy S4 to earn the title as the world's fastest smartphone using the Geekbench benchmark tests. In single-core testing, the full-featured iPhone had a huge margin over the LG G2, the second place finisher. The Samsung Galaxy S4 was third. The HTC One was fourth, while the Apple iPhone 5c was fifth. A pair of mini-sized phones, the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and the HTC One mini, were sixth and seventh. In multi-core testing, the Apple iPhone 5s still wound up on top, but the LG G2 finished a much closer second. While the Apple iPhone 5s u
  13. Nokia sent out a presser that it has extended the secretive agreement it had with Samsung on mobile related patents for another five years. The kicker is that the price Samsung will have to pony up will not be known until 2015 rolls in. It will ultimately be settled in a binding arbitration then, likely with a lot of variables clearer, such as Samsung's total phone turnaround, and Nokia being a separate entity at the time, that will have the rights on the vast patent portfolio after Microsoft acquires the Devices & Services division next year. This extension and agreement to arbitra
  14. Samsung has committed to bringing Android 4.3 Jelly Bean to its Galaxy S III former flagship and the rollout should start in a few weeks’ time. If you know your way around flashing a ROM manually, though, you don’t even have to wait that long as a pre-release version of the Android 4.3 build has just surfaced. The beta version is reportedly stable enough to work as a daily driver, although it may have a bug or two. It brings a number of UI changes, including a new settings menu with tabbed interface as found on more recent Samsung flagships. The transparent notification bar is here to
  15. The Tizen based OS, the Samsung Z9005 made another appearance. This time around, the smartphone showed up in an extensive hands-on video. It gives us a good glimpse of the device’s OS, including the settings and notifications menu, as well as the camera UI. See it below: Unsurprisingly, the OS of the Samsung Z9005 shares quite a few design bits with the Korean manufacturer’s TouchWiz UI for Android. The circular icons on the other hand, hark back to the MeeGo past of Samsung’s partner in the Tizen project – Intel. Previous reports point that the Samsung Z9005 is a develope
  16. A judge has determined that Samsung probably violated a court-ordered agreement to keep Apple documents secret, the latest snit in the epic patent battle between the companies that started in the summer of 2012. Judge Paul Grewal asked to look over the documents himself last month. Now, "having finally crawled out from under the boxes," he says it does look like the order was breached and "sanctions against Samsung and its attorneys are warranted." Apple gave Samsung copies of confidential patent licensing agreements with Nokia, Ericsson, Sharp, and Philips as part of the legal discovery proc
  17. Android 4.4, also known as KitKat, is the most recent version of Google’s popular operating system, and it’s already shipping in several new devices around the world. But what about the 900 million or so Android devices that have been sold to date? How do you know if your phone or tablet will get a sweet KitKat upgrade? Here's a guide to the major manufacturers and their KitKat roadmaps so far. Google The Nexus 7 and Nexus 10, will all receive the KitKat upgrade. Motorola Motorola is primed to show off the latest and greatest facets of Android and the new KitKat operating system. I
  18. It is official, guys – the Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom is coming to AT&T and it won't be long until the handset lands on the carrier's shelves. Samsung's camera-centric smartphone (or camera that can also make calls, if you will) is scheduled to launch on November 8, priced at $199.99 on a 2-year contract. Alternatively, the device can be purchased via the carrier's frequent upgrade plan, AT&T Next. The latter option puts a Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom in your hands in exchange for 20 equal monthly payments of $25 each. The Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom is an Android 4.2 smartphone that can ea
  19. David Eun, executive vice president at Samsung, revealed today at Samsung's Developer Conference that Samsung sells some 1 million mobile devices every day. This includes smartphones, tablets, and anything that can be considered mobile. Eun's message to developers was that Samsung's next goal is getting them all to communicate with one another. "We know many of these devices and screens are connected. This is largely due to the fact that some 40 percent of the population connects to the internet. We hope to build along with you one of the largest platforms in the world for content
  20. Google announced the smartwatch-ready Android Wear platform in March with LG And Motorola immediately confirmed as the first two manufacturers to embrace it. Those two are expected to finally completely detail their offerings at the Google I/O developer conference that begins next week. However, a new report now suggests that they will be joined on stage by what is currently the biggest player in the smartwatch game – Samsung. According to CNET sources familiar with the matter, Samsung is planning to launch its own Android Wear-running smartwatch at the event. The wearable will allege
  21. Samsung appears to have stumbled across the holy grail of commercial graphene production: A new technique that can grow high-quality single-crystal graphene on silicon wafers — graphene that is suitable for the production of graphene field-effect transistors (GFETs) — and afterward, once the graphene has been peeled off, the silicon wafers can even be reused! Samsung is dressing this up as a breakthrough for flexible, wearable computers — which is fair enough, given the company’s recent focus on curved smartphones and watches. This work, carried out by the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technol
  22. After getting treated to a teardown and prolonged water submersion, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was put through the rigors of a drop test. To make the matters more interesting, this year’s Samsung smartphone flagship was joined by its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S4. The duo of Samsung Galaxy devices were put through a number of drops from various heights. They include leaps from pockets’ height, head height (including with the screen facing the ground), as well as from ten feet high. Both smartphones managed the abuse quite well (only minor dings and no cracked displays) until the h
  23. South Korean regulators caught the country's carriers violating laws that impose the maximum subsidy for a phone. The resulting 45 day ban of acquiring new customers that starts on April 5 would interfere with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 on April 11. The Galaxy S5 is going to be one of the hottest sellers for both Samsung and the carriers, so SK Telecom "strongly asked" Samsung to launch the flagship earlier. Starting today, SK Telecom stores and website will be offering the Galaxy S5 at KWR 866,800 ($810) off contract. The other two major carriers – KT and LG Uplus – will al
  24. Samsung has launched the Galaxy S5 smartphone, along with the Gear 2, Gear Neo and Gear Fit smartwatches in India. The Galaxy S5 will be priced between INR 51,000 ($848) and INR 53,000 ($881). The exact pricing will be announced later but some retailers have already announced plans of selling the phone for INR 51,500 ($856). The variant of Galaxy S5 launched in India runs on Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa 5422 processor with four 1.9GHz Cortex-A15 cores and four 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 cores. This is a true octa core chip, meaning it can run all eight cores simultaneously if necessary. Unlike t
  25. Tokyo District Court Judge Koji Hasegawa ruled that Apple's iPhone 4S, 4, and iPad 2 did not infringe on a data communications patent held by Samsung. The Korean company had claimed that the Apple devices were violating its intellectual property. This is the latest in a string of patent litigations that have gone through courts around the world, with the latest ruling out of the US awarding Apple some $930 million in damages. A Samsung spokesman says the company is disappointed in the ruling out of Japan, but is yet to decide whether to appeal. Source
