For those looking to get into a bit of VR content creation, Samsung announced during this morning’s keynote presentation at the Samsung Developers Conference, the Gear 360 camera will go on sale beginning April 29 in select countries.
Oddly enough, with that date being only two days away, Samsung gave no specifics as to which countries would be able to purchase it. Furthermore, no pricing was made available. As Samsung states, sales will be online-only at first, and will branch out to additional territories in the coming months. (more…)
Samsung has apparently heard the cries of its customers, and before long, we may have a sequel to the Gear Fit smartband. Reportedly called the Gear Fit 2, this smartband will likely track your day-to-day outings by tracking steps, calories burned and more. As we can see in the photos, it heavily resembles the original Gear Fit, but given its small size, there is not much else to see. According to Venture Beat, the Gear Fit 2 will feature a 1.84″ Super AMOLED display, as well as GPS tracking. (more…)
Our review of the Galaxy S7 Edge has been up for a little while now, and having used the device for a solid month at this point, I feel as if I should share my final take on the device before I get something else in my hands. Unsurprisingly to many, I’m sure, the Galaxy S7 Edge is still my vote for the top device released so far in 2016. It’s pretty early in the year after all, but from what I have seen thus far, I don’t think the LG G5 or HTC 10 have what it takes to overcome everything the Galaxy S7 Edge offers. (more…)
To help owners of the Gear S2 change up their style more quickly, Samsung announced the Band Adapter this morning, opening up the door for better watch strap swapping. As it is, the Gear S2 features a proprietary clipping mechanism that attaches the watch straps to the body of the watch. With this Band Adapter, you can attach standard 20mm watch straps, like the ones available for the Gear S2 Classic or any other strap you might have laying around the house. (more…)
Pink. A Galaxy S7 in pink.
Try to deny it. Tim isn’t. I’m pretty sure he is pre-ordering today, from Korea, where it is debuting.
Actually, I think the real story here is the fact that Samsung is admitting that it’s pink, something Apple refuses to do with its “rose gold.” GTFO, Apple, your “rose gold” is pinker than Samsung’s pink. Look at this. (more…)
Samsung Pay added two more banks to its growing list, this morning, bringing its total to 130 and “over 75% of the US debit and credit card market.” The two new financial institutions are TD Bank and Regions Bank.
Samsung also noted in a press release that it has added 60 Visa and MasterCard banks and credit unions since early March. (more…)
The Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ on T-Mobile are receiving updates to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow this morning. Maybe I should include a “finally” in there, since T-Mo owners of these phones feel like they have been left well behind typically slower carriers like Verizon who have already pushed out updates to each phone.

So, here is a somewhat ridiculously lengthy video to take you into the weekend and kill a good 20 minutes of your life, assuming you have no plans and don’t mind killing 20 minutes of your life. This afternoon, I spent some time (a lot of time) talking on camera about the HTC 10 and how it compares to the other two flagship phones of the moment, the LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7. After some overlooked issues with the original video, the version I feel comfortable publishing is now live for you to take a look at.
In this clip, I talk through the differences between the three devices, which areas strike me as being better from one to the next, and if there is one or two I would recommend you take a look at. Because this is – again – a ridiculously lengthy video, I’ll give you a spoiler by saying, the G5 doesn’t exactly crack the top 2.
We’ll have a full review of the HTC 10 along shortly, but for now, grab a drink and snack and take it all in. (more…)
