    Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Hands-on

    Samsung made their big announcements this week not at IFA, because they’re too cool for IFA. To be fair, though, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, announced at Samsung’s Unpacked event, is awfully cool.

    6 Dirt Cheap Smartphones that are Actually Quite Good

    Cheap smartphones, no contract. Pick one, right? Unsubsidized, off-contract phones come at a high price—high enough to make the confines of a two-year contract preferable by comparison, which is really saying something. But, that’s only true for the flagship phones that get most of the publicity. The market is awash in low- and mid-tier budget […]

    Samsung Galaxy S Tablet is Crazy Thin [Hands-on]

    Samsung doesn’t have quite as big of a slice of the United States tablet market as they do in smartphones, but they’re still in second.
