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…)
T-Mobile has approved the Android 4.4.2 “Kit Kat” update for its variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4, with rollout expected to start today. The new build number is M919UVUFNB4. In order to update over-the-air (OTA) or through Kies, you’ll need to be on build M919UVUEMK2. (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…)
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…)
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…)
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…)
Been waiting impatiently for a list of Samsung devices that are guaranteed to see the update to Android 4.4.2 “Kit Kat“? We now have one, thanks to Samsung. The list features devices you would expect like the Galaxy S4 and S3, Galaxy Note 3 and 2, and Galaxy Note tablets. According to the Android behemoth, updates should begin as early as today, though “availability varis by carrier and product.”
Since we already saw Kit Kat show up for the Sprint Galaxy S4 last week, there could be more at any time. As soon as we learn of specific carrier models receiving updates, we’ll be sure to pass that info along. (more…)
The Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) update for the Galaxy S4 on Sprint has been approved and is ready to rollout beginning today. The update will run as build VPUFNAE, and that’s about all we know. (more…)
