Crazy Deal Part 2: Galaxy S4 “Certified Like-New” From AT&T for $179 Off-Contract

Over the weekend, many of you took advantage of AT&T’s “certified like-new” Galaxy Note 3 sale, which had the device listed for $249 without a contract. That’s completely insane, in terms of deals. We initially thought that the price was wrong, but it held up all weekend and is still there, though the device in either black or white is unsurprisingly sold out. If you missed out, don’t worry, there is another deal going on that’s just as good for the Galaxy S4(more…)

Deal: Amazon Gold Box has 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB Samsung microSD Cards at 65% Off

Just in time for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (2014), Amazon is hosting a Gold Box deal on Samsung micro SD PRO and PLUS cards with prices up to 65% off. Since both devices have a slot for expandable storage, you may want to think about picking up a card to take advantage. We should point out that the Galaxy S5 was announced with a micro SD slot, while the “All New HTC One” is only rumored to have one at this point, but all leaks currently point to it having a slot.

The PRO cards start at $15 and go up to $50 for the 64GB version. These cards are capable of transferring data at 70MB/s. The PLUS cards are the slightly cheaper model with prices ranging from $10 to $36 and can transfer data at speeds of 48MB/s. All cards are Class 10 UHS-1, and come with adapters.  (more…)

Specs: Galaxy S5 vs. Galaxy S4 vs. Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Notes

Specs comparisons are always fun, especially when they involve new phones like Samsung’s recently announced Galaxy S5. While they only tell a portion of the story, putting specs for devices on paper gives you an idea as to how big or little the changes are from one device to the next. From reading your responses to yesterday’s unveiling, we get the feeling that most don’t consider the GS5 to be much of a boost over the GS4.  (more…)

Video: Galaxy S5 vs. Galaxy S4 vs. Galaxy Note 3 vs. Moto X vs. Nexus 5

Whenever a new flagship device from Samsung or HTC or Motorola or any other major manufacturer comes out, we like to compare it to the current competition. So since the Galaxy S5 was unveiled today, and Tim and I got our paws all over it, we decided to put it up against the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3 in one video to show some of the differences. After that, we brought in the Moto X and Nexus 5 since we know how many of you have at least one of those two devices.

We’ll have more thoughts on the Galaxy S5 in general, but for now, prepare for video overload as we continue our coverage this evening.  (more…)

New Samsung Commercials Take Direct Shots at iPad Air and iPhone, LeBron James Included

Samsung kicked off a new marketing campaign this morning using ads that show off both the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 up against Apple’s latest and greatest. They are to the point in their praise of the features filling up their Galaxy products while making sure we all know the same can’t be said for the iPhone 5s and iPad Air. They are casual in tone, at times silly, and will certainly help reinvigorate a battle we have been watching for years now.  (more…)
