Samsung Gear Sport hands-on: The Gear S2 refresh we all wanted

We really needed that ‘in between’ smartwatch again.

Samsung is playing on a different level, and now the iPhone is the only competition

There are tons of companies making great phones. But Samsung only cares about one.

Samsung has a great way of keeping itself in the technology conversation by having dueling flagship phone releases: a Galaxy S around March, and a Galaxy Note around August. It has also had a knack for releasing really great phones over the past three years in particular. From the Galaxy S8 to the larger Galaxy S8+ and now Galaxy Note 8, Samsung has  [Read More…]
