Samsung’s Galaxy Watch could be the smartwatch we’ve been waiting for

With Wear OS, Samsung Pay, and more, the Galaxy Watch could be huge.

Smartwatches aren’t quite as popular as they were a couple years back, but in 2018, that may start to change. Google appears to be prepping its own Pixel Watch, Qualcomm’s working on all-new processors for wearable devices, and Samsung’s getting ready to release the Galaxy Watch.

Today, I’d like to take a moment to talk about what Samsung’s doing.

Rumors have been piling up for  [Read More…]

Samsung’s next smartwatch to be called Galaxy Watch, use Wear OS

There will also be some sort of “new UX interaction.”

Most notably, it’s reported that the Gear S4 (the name of which will be changed to Galaxy Watch) will be powered by Wear OS, formally called Android Wear. It was said that Samsung was dabbling  [Read More…]

Samsung’s Bixby now shows you sports scores and news from theScore

It’s been more than a year since we first met the Bixby virtual assistant on the Galaxy S8, and until now we’ve seen relatively little in terms of substantive improvements.

In fact, the version of Bixby installed on the new Galaxy S9 isn’t that much better than what shipped on last year’s Samsung flagships.

For its part, the Korean tech giant is trying to make Bixby more relevant to its users. Case in point, this week we’ve learned that Samsung  [Read More…]

Great price.

The Samsung T5 500GB portable solid state drive is down to $ 129.99 on Amazon for the first time. This price is an all new low for the T5 and beats the previous low by $ 20. This deal is even better than last year’s holiday shopping season.

Samsung’s new Chromebook Plus is a smart move that keeps it competitive

The Chromebook Plus will compete nicely with other products in its price range throughout 2018 thanks to a nice refresh by Samsung.

The Samsung Chromebook Plus holds the distinction of being our choice for the Best Chromebook since it was first made available last year. The price-to-feature ratio is simply outstanding, and while it was bested by other models in either category, none came close when considering both. That was about to change with the introduction of  [Read More…]

Samsung’s Alcantara case is the most luxurious way to protect your Galaxy S9 or S9+

Protection for your phone and enjoyment for your hand.

Alcantara is a fabric typically associated with the interiors of race cars and their sporty consumer counterparts, but in recent years it’s been adapted as a choice for consumer electronics as well. Microsoft has been putting feet of the stuff on the Surface Pro and Surface Laptop, and Samsung has also locked it in as a go-to material for its flagship phone cases. And I’m glad it has,  [Read More…]

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 battery ‘issues’ are all about Apple

Samsung makes more than just phones and the Exynos 9810 Galaxy S9 is a €950 beta test.

By now you’ve probably heard that the Exynos-powered international version of the Samsung Galaxy S9 doesn’t have the greatest battery life. Some say it’s fair, some say it’s the most horrible thing ever, so that means it’s somewhere in the middle and that’s not good enough for a phone in 2018. Especially a very expensive phone.

This time North America  [Read More…]
