LIVE: Samsung Press Event CES 2014

samsung ces

Our CES 2014 press day continues this afternoon with Samsung’s 2PM Pacific event. Samsung likes to show off all sorts of products during their event, which makes sense since they do a heck of a lot more than mobile. In other words, we should see new TVs, lots of them. We’ll also probably talk appliances, maybe even wearables, and then finish up with mobile. 

We already saw a whole bunch of new Samsung tablets leak thanks to @evleaks, so I’d imagine they will all be on-stage or mentioned at some point in the quick 45-minute show. If not, we’ll see them later this afternoon when we meet with Samsung. Don’t expect flagship-type phones, though, as Samsung holds their own stand-alone press events for products like that.

So strap in, this is usually the big one. We started waiting in line an hour and a half before the event and aren’t even close to the front of the line. Samsung runs the tech world around these parts.

A live blog is embedded below. Samsung says there is a live stream, so we’ll try to include it. Otherwise, enjoy our commentary and pictures!

    Congratulations Samsung, you released products that almost no one wants to buy.

  • Trevor

    Man, you can’t make washers and dryers interesting, can you? Just not possible.

  • Ryan

    Droid life is the only legit wifi name. Mine is FBI Surveillance Van LOL.

    • Maxim∑

      very original!

      • Ryan

        The sarcasm is strong with this one lol

        • Kevin

          Pathetic. Tell a lame joke then trying to pass it off as sarcasm.

          • Adrynalyne

            You are pathetic. He was referring to Maxim’s sarcasm.

          • Kevin

            How would you know?

          • Adrynalyne

            Reading comprehension, your lack of it is how I know.

    • Michael Arazan

      Mine is “NSA Open Source” just to mess with my neighbors, and I leave it unlocked but no one uses it

  • Steveo

    Sooo do we anticipate any word on the Nexus 10 2? Either in Samsung’s event or in another?

  • mcdonsco

    No galaxy s5 ehh? Oh well

    • StuckOnVerizonForever

      The real question, does anybody actually care about Samsung anymore?

      • Adrynalyne

        Marketshare says: Yes.

        • StuckOnVerizonForever

          Their IQ should be tested.

          • Tim Aries

            You should learn that there are loads of die-hard Samsung fanboys here man, take care.

          • Adrynalyne

            Except that I am not and you can look at my history to know that.

            I am just sick of this guy spouting off bullcrap.

      • mcdonsco

        Aren’t they, I dont know, like the #1 smartphone manufacturer in the world?

        Something tells me you’re an idiot.

        And I dont even own anything Samsung at the moment other than my washer and dryer.

        • Adrynalyne

          I dislike Samsung, but I can confirm your suspicions….all of them.

        • StuckOnVerizonForever

          Doesn’t mean they produce good products.

          • Adrynalyne

            You don’t get to number 1 by having bad products.

            You need to get your head checked.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Lol since when were bloated, plastic, pos , good products? Nope.

          • Adrynalyne

            You just described most phones out there, Samsung or not. Unless you use an HTC One, you are a little hypocrite.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Nope. Nexus 5, G2, Nexus 4, Xperia, etc. Samsung is the only phone that adds useless features

          • Adrynalyne

            Yep, hypocrite. Nexus 5: Plastic, G2: Plastic AND bloated. Nexus 4: Plastic. Xperia: Plastic.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Plastic, but not bloated. The G2 is nowhere near bloated. It is faster than every Samsung phone, and doesnt up over half of its internal storage.

            Xperia is plastic.

            Nexus 5 isnt a crappy plastic

          • Adrynalyne

            Nowhere near as bloated? You are deluded.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Ask any G2 owner.

          • Adrynalyne

            I don’t need to. It is a fact. They are both incredibly bloated. Performance is something different.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Lol yeah cause the G2 is bloated with S health, s voice, s translate, s bloat, s lag, etc. Nope. Very minimal LG apps. Hardly any actually

          • Adrynalyne

            Yeah, its all in the UI. Stop your silliness, it is embarrassing.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Nope. UI is clean and smooth. Call me silly? Do your research.

          • Adrynalyne

            Thick-headed, aren’t you? Performance and bloat are not related. You can have bloat and be plenty fast. The UI is bloated all to hell. I don’t need to do research for a device I have used.

            http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2481646

            The lite version, deodexed (which makes it SMALLER) is ONLY 621mb? That isn’t bloated? Are you high? That is THREE times the size of a stock rom!

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            G2 isnt bloated. I don’t care what anybody says. Samsung is bloated and can barely move around the home page without lagging

            And after you just called the Nexus 4 and Xperias plastic, i refuse to listen to anything else you have to say because youre obviously clueless

          • Adrynalyne

            “Don’t confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up” is all I heard.

            Stock G2 rom: 2GB! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2590467

            Not bloated AT ALL.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Bloated = useless apps that nobody uses

            G2 isnt that, at all.

          • Adrynalyne

            http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bloat

            unwarranted or excessive growth or enlargement

            Notice the -or-.

            I need to stop responding to you, it is sapping my intelligence.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Im sure your intelligence cant get any worse than it already is.

          • Adrynalyne

            While I am sure there are intelligent Best Buy salespeople, you clearly aren’t part of that group.

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Good thing im not apart of those low paying folks. Im in a higher paying group .

          • Adrynalyne

            Thank you for proving my point.

          • Mark

            Hey Nancy,

            I own an S4 and don’t experience this lagging that you speak of. And you must care a lot about Samsung if you are spending your precious time in a Samsung thread arguing specifically how you hate Samsung. Either trolling or obsessed. Can’t tell

          • StuckOnVerizonForever

            Congrats, you’re the only one

          • crazed_z06

            Barely move around the home page? Please stop making stuff up.

            The G2 is a great device and everything, but you need to stop exaggerating.

          • Adrynalyne

            The Nexus 4 certainly is plastic. Do you think a glass layer over the back makes it NOT plastic?

            Which Xperia are we talking about?

            Because the Z definitely is. These glass layers over plastic don’t make the plastic non-existent.

          • Tim Aries

            When it comes to plastic, Sony Xperia doesn’t use the kind of plastic Samesung Galaxy uses, just saying.

          • Adrynalyne

            Nonetheless, to say it is not plastic is a lie.

          • Ryan

            Nope just mass marketing through brain washing.

          • Adrynalyne

            You gotta have the products, too. Marketing alone won’t cut it.

        • StuckOnVerizonForever

          I dont like iOS, but at least Apple is at the top because they make premium hardware

          • Adrynalyne

            Wrong.

            Apple sells the most of a device, but not as a smartphone manufacturer overall.

  • Intellectua1

    The event WE’ve all been waiting on.. (Cue the trumpets)

  • Michael

    Michael Bay’s speech was more explosive than his movies.

  • tharealoc

    Michael Bay had a melt down on stage….Learn your lines!…amateur.

    • Maxim∑

      You go up and try, not that easy especially since that wasn’t such a good audience

      • mcdonsco

        Agreed…I know for sure I couldn’t do it.

      • tharealoc

        If someone is afraid of public speaking, don’t take money from a company to go up and speak and a big event. He made the decision to be a guest speaker for samsung. Just because there is a technical difficulty doesn’t give him the the right to go back on what he signed up for. Samsung should prorate his pay for the limited time he was on stage and throw in a little for compensation for the technical difficulty.

        • Maxim∑

          I’m 110% sure he didnt do it for the money, it clearly was not intentional nor a technical difficulty. He just attempted to recover by making that script excuse but could not at that point

          • Adrynalyne

            You think he did it for free? Come on…that is one heck of a stretch.

  • Jeff Ayers

    Good for Michael Bay for getting this far in life without being able to read or speak in front of a crowd.

    • StuckOnVerizonForever

      He uses explosions as cover.

    • T4rd

      He must have learned from the best (J-Lo)!

    • mcdonsco

      I was kind of thinking the same thing

  • WCM3

    How does Michael Bay just walk off? lol

    • aBabyPenguin

      Right?! He better not be getting paid for that disaster.

      • Maxim∑

        Probably walked off partially due to the crap audience even the appliances guy had trouble…
        and right after,
        “Welcome to Vegas. It’s live shows folks.” the main speaker is such an ass, feel bad for Bay

  • Apostrafee

    Well that was awkward

    • aBabyPenguin

      I thought it was a joke! Wow

  • T4rd

    I’m sure they’ll announce the death of Touchwiz and that they’ll use stock Android on all of their devices from now on. /s

  • StuckOnVerizonForever
    • Maxim∑

      Yeah lest put pure metal on a 12.2in tablet, its already “heavy” enough with plastic

      • StuckOnVerizonForever

        Ill take aluminum, glass, whatever and extra weight for a premium feel. If its to heavy for people, lift some weights.

        • Maxim∑

          lol, I tried not to mention iPad Air
