AT&T Galaxy Note 4 (Appears to be) Receiving Update to Lollipop! (Updated: It Is)

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. At least one reader told me that he is over two hours into his download of this 1.1GB file. As you can see, I was momentarily at 0% and am now hovering around 7%. This is going to be a long one.

I can’t get any clear confirmations on if this is actually Android 5.0, since everyone still seems to be downloading. AT&T also hasn’t updated their support page with official word on the update. So, if you have received this and actually updated, let us know!  (more…)

AT&T Just Announced the Galaxy S5 Mini…Available March 20…What?

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…)

DisplayMate: Galaxy S6 Matches and Breaks Records in Smartphone Display Performance

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.

Matched only by Samsung’s other champion, the Galaxy Note 4 from last year, high praise was given to Samsung’s ability to fit an astonishing amount of pixels into the 5.1″ screen size (from 432ppi in the GS5 to 577 ppi in the GS6), the higher amount of color accuracy (27% improvement), and the power efficiency increase over last year’s Galaxy S5 (20% improvement).
