The best tablets, as rated by you, the consumers

by Blogger on ‎12-09-2014 11:50 PM - last edited on ‎12-15-2014 08:45 AM by Blog Editor in Chief



Sometimes, a good recommendation can be a great starting point or the final confirmation when making the decision to buy a device like a tablet. Of course, not every tablet works for every user, and not every user wants every tablet that’s available, so it doesn’t hurt to filter through the options. This group of tablets are the ones that stand out based on feedback from you, the readers and consumers.


The best tablets of 2014

by Blogger on ‎11-27-2014 11:34 AM - last edited on ‎11-28-2014 10:09 AM by Blog Editor in Chief



It’s almost hard to believe that the tablet market, at least as we know it today, is little more than four years old. From the original iPad launch in 2010 to the spate of differing models available now, the category’s evolution has made choosing between them both easy and difficult at the same time. This year has seen some solid options come to market, and here are the best of the bunch.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Note 4

by Blogger on ‎10-19-2014 01:04 PM - last edited on ‎10-22-2014 10:33 AM by Blog Editor in Chief


Samsung makes several different smartphones, but if there’s one that stands out above the others for the company, it’s probably the Galaxy Note 4. The latest in the line that arguably kicked off the “phablet” era, the Note 4 isn’t a huge leap forward from the previous model, yet it still benefits from some of the tinkering Samsung has done with it. The company would like the S Pen stylus to stand out more, and it might with its improved performance here, but the real gem is the big sharp 5.7-inch display.


Samsung unveils Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge

by Blogger on ‎09-03-2014 09:38 AM - last edited on ‎09-11-2014 01:25 PM by Blog Editor in Chief



Samsung unveiled two new smartphones at an event that ran simultaneously in New York, Berlin and Beijing, with the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge. This marks the first time that two unique Note handsets will be released, though neither is a huge departure from the existing formula. The Note 4 is Samsung’s most powerful phone to date, while the Note Edge uses a curve on the side of its screen to display information like a ticker or menu bar.

Samsung devices up for grabs in Future Shop contest

by Blogger on ‎08-21-2014 02:42 PM - last edited on ‎08-22-2014 05:07 PM by Blog Editor in Chief



Part of the reason Samsung is such a recognizable brand is because it dabbles in more than just a couple of product categories. Known for its smartphones and tablets, the company is also in the wearables and camera spaces, creating them in a way that is part of the larger family. Whether you are looking for a more connected ecosystem or just one particular device for back to school, here are some options for you.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab S

by Blogger on ‎06-30-2014 07:56 PM - last edited on ‎07-02-2014 03:00 PM by Blog Editor in Chief



In the space of less than six months, Samsung has launched three different tablet variants in a quest to offer something for everyone, and the Galaxy Tab S falls in the premium consumer column. Where the TabPRO is primarily targeted at business users and the Galaxy Tab 4 line aimed at the budget-conscious, the Galaxy Tab S is the company’s elite consumer tablet, meant to not only be the best Samsung can deliver, but also the best on the market.


Samsung updates Galaxy Gear smartwatch with Tizen

by Blogger on ‎06-17-2014 07:31 PM - last edited on ‎11-20-2014 01:50 PM by Blog Editor in Chief



In most cases, updating the software or operating system on a device is an iterative exercise where the latest version simply adds or replaces features from the previous one. Then there are unique cases like Samsung’s first-generation Galaxy Gear smartwatch, where an update has turned into an overhaul, pushing the Android-based platform it originally ran on in favour of Tizen, the software running on the Galaxy Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit wearables.


Review: Samsung UD590 UHD 28" 4K Monitor

by Blogger on ‎06-13-2014 07:00 AM - last edited on ‎06-23-2014 10:00 AM by Blog Editor in Chief


Renowned as a leader in UHD 4K TVs, it probably comes as no surprise that Samsung has now brought UHD 4K display technology to its monitor line up. The launch of Samsung’s UD590 28” 4K Monitor is among very few models on the market that are making the 4K viewing experience affordable for all desktop users. Samsung has always held a strong reputation in display technology, but it wasn’t until I sat down to play with the UD590 monitor that I really noticed the stark difference between a truly high-end display and other conventional monitors I’ve used.


Samsung Galaxy Gear Apps

by Blogger ‎05-31-2014 08:06 AM - edited ‎06-04-2014 06:28 AM



The Samsung Galaxy Gear watch has come a long way in a seemingly very short period of time. A year is almost an eternity in the tech world, and there is heavy competition in the smartwatch space (with more on the way), but Samsung has found a way to stand out in the crowd, and get developers on board for the ride.  Such is the case with the recent influx in native applications available for download in the Samsung Apps market place. Working exclusively on a Samsung device and in conjunction with the Gear 1, Gear 2, Gear Neo and Gear Fit, these apps were designed to make your life easier and that much more reliant on that sometimes ostentatious wrist candy you’re rocking.

Review: Samsung Gear Fit

by Blogger on ‎04-17-2014 09:27 PM - last edited on ‎05-21-2014 10:59 AM by Blog Editor in Chief



Is Samsung’s Gear Fit a smartwatch or a fitness band? Could it be both, and if so, can it pull it off? These are reasonable questions for a device that doesn’t really have one distinct purpose, yet manages to carve out a unique identity. Straddling the line like that can be risky for an unproven gadget, but then again, the Fit doesn’t usually act alone, relying on certain Galaxy devices to expand on its capabilities. The result is an interesting one that shows promise, though a slam dunk remains elusive.
