AT&T Galaxy Note 4 owners are being treated to the slowest download in history, this morning, one that may very well be Android 5.0 Lollipop. It’s like the ultimate tease.

Chainfire, creator/keeper/hax0r of the root, posted on his Google+ page today that his CF-Auto-Root tool is primed for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge under model numbers SM-G920T and SM-G925T. (more…)
The date is March 16, a significant piece of information to note, knowing that AT&T just announced that they will carry the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini on March 20. Again, today is not April 1. You also did not just read “Galaxy S6 Mini” or “Galaxy S6″ or “you won’t believe this because it makes absolutely zero sense, but we are about to carry the mini version of last year’s flagship from Samsung.” (more…)
According to sources of SamMobile, specifications for the upcoming Galaxy S6 Active, the hardened version of Samsung’s latest flagship device, have been confirmed. On top of specs, availability is said to have been confirmed for AT&T, just like each previous edition of the S6 Active. (more…)
In the latest report filed by Display Mate, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge dominated Lab testing, making it one of, if not the best display you can currently find in a smartphone.
