Just a quick heads-up, but if you were planning to pre-order the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, or HTC One M9 from Verizon tomorrow (April 1), know that the listings will go live at 3AM ET (12:00AM PDT).

Video: Samsung Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6

Since we reviewed the iPhone 6 last year, we still have the little guy around the office. That may seem like an odd thing, knowing that we are an Android-focused site, but as it turns out, it’s actually a pretty good thing now that we have the Samsung Galaxy S6 in house. As many of you know, during our review process, we try and compare new flagships to current flagships of the moment to get a sense for our feeling with each in hand, talk about the specs of each, and generally, weigh in on the little things we prefer from one to the next. With both iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 available, this gives us a chance to compare the current smartphone king, to what may become the new smartphone king.  (more…)

So, We Fast Charged the Samsung Galaxy S6 and This is What Happened

One of the best features that few will give proper praise to with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge is Fast Charging. It’s like Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0, which you know we love. The basics are this – you plug-in your Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge when their batteries are extremely depleted and watch as they quickly charge to a reasonable amount in a short amount of time. Samsung states that you can get four hours of use in just 10 minutes. Awesome, right?  (more…)

Here Come the April Fools’ Jokes a Day Early – Google and Samsung are First (Updated)

Well, get ready for it – April Fools’ 2015 has already started. Google is in on the act as usual, with a Pac-Man version of Google Maps that went live moments ago.

Either way, this day(s) is always a lot of fun. We’ll try to keep track of some of the best as we see them.  (more…)

Samsung Galaxy S6 Unboxing

We now have the Samsung Galaxy S6 in our possession. I’m not sure I can put into words how ready for this moment I am. You see, we feel a little screwed by Samsung for not hosting a US satellite press event during MWC for this phone and its brother, like they have done every year for every phone as far back as I can remember, so this is, as odd as this sounds, the first time I have placed my hands on one. The excitement truly cannot be contained.  (more…)

Verizon is Pushing a New Lollipop Update to the Galaxy S5 That Hopefully Isn’t Terrible

Back in early February, Verizon pushed out an Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its version of the Galaxy S5. Most people couldn’t believe it, as this was the first S5 variant in the US to see the jump to 5.0, which almost never happens with major updates for Verizon’s line of Android phones. As it turns out, being first wasn’t such a bonus for owners of the phone.  (more…)
