If our hands-on software and hardware tours, feature highlights, and comparisons weren’t enough to satisfy your appetite for all things Galaxy S5, then check out the latest video from Samsung. Sammy takes us on a 4-minute walk-through of all the key features for their new flagship, from a list of specs to new camera functionality to going grey-scale to extend battery life.
This is your step-by-step guide to knowing which features will help your life become “powered” by a GS5. Yes, that’s the tagline here. In fact, Samsung reminds you at the beginning of the clip that innovation isn’t just about the technology and specs, it’s about how the entire package can improve your everyday life. Good ol’ marketing speak.

Last week in Barcelona and New York City, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5, the world’s first smartphone to feature a dedicated heart rate monitor built into the device. While few people were claiming this to be the best thing since sliced bread, we had a few people take to our comments section, claiming they’ve had this on their phones since the Gingerbread days.

The Nexus 10, probably the tablet I have used the most over the last couple of years out of any Android tablet, can be picked up today through one of eBay’s Daily Deals for $329.99. This is the 32GB version that originally retailed for $499 at launch over a year ago and has been out of stock on Google Play for months. Other retailers are selling this model for $399 now, so at $329.99, you are still seeing a significant discount, though it’s not exactly the $170 off that the deal would lead you to believe. (more…)
Samsung must absolutely love themselves a little leatherette backside, as it appears they are bringing the design from the Galaxy Note 3, to an upcoming Chromebook 2 device. Thanks to evleaks, who posted two pictures of the device over the weekend, fans of the Chrome OS can keep their eyes open for a brand new laptop device from Samsung. (more…)
If you watched the Oscars last night and are at all interested in technology, then you know who the real winner was. Samsung. Not only did Samsung pay for four well-placed commercials during breaks, but their phones were everywhere throughout the show. Host Ellen Degeneres pulled out Samsung devices a handful of times on and off stage, but the most memorable involved the Galaxy Note 3 and a “selfie” that is now the most retweeted Tweet of all time.

Having an already busy day on Monday with the unveiling of the Galaxy S5, Samsung is keeping the ball rolling this week, announcing two new mobile processors for smartphones and tablets, the Exynos 5 Octa (5422) and Exynos 5 Hexa. (more…)
This afternoon, AT&T announced through their official Galaxy S4 support page that the device would begin receiving an update to Android 4.4 “Kit Kat” tomorrow. As of right now, the Sprint variant is the only other U.S. carrier-tied Galaxy S4 to receive Kit Kat, so this puts AT&T users in rare company. (more…)
