Samsung Galaxy S9+ India review: As good as it gets

The Galaxy S9+ is an iterative update, and that’s okay.

Samsung introduced a radical new design last year with the Galaxy S8 series, with the Infinity Display design language seeing a switch to the 18.5:9 form factor. Samsung also went all-in on its curved panels, and unlike the Galaxy S7, there wasn’t a flat screen option available with the Galaxy S8.

With the Galaxy S9, Samsung is sticking to the same design aesthetic. The Galaxy S9+ that  [Read More…]

Since its announcement in December of last year, the View 10 has been continually pushed back and out of the spotlight, but months later we finally have an official release date — and U.S. pricing.

Shipping out on March 23, the  [Read More…]

CAT S61: One of the best rugged phones gets a laser-powered upgrade

If you ask me, smartphones can’t have enough sensors. Sure, the communicator was my favorite Star Trek gadget growing up, but coming in a close second was the tricorder. Starfleet’s palmtop scanner could see through walls, alert the crew to the presence of poison gases, and determine the distance to the nearest drove of dilithium – all while surviving the kind of punishing abuse only Paramount Pictures soundstages- I mean, Exotic Alien Worlds could dish out.
