T-Mobile has started pushing an update today to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 as software version VU2DPE3 or VU1DPE3. Those numbers don’t actually matter much, though, because the real story here is the fact that the update is Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
T-Mobile doesn’t list many details about the update outside of the file size (1.5GB), but being a Note device, you should expect a similar experience to what the Note 5 got with Marshmallow. Details of that update can be found here. (more…)
According to the latest from Evan Blass, the next Galaxy Note will in fact be the Galaxy Note 7, not the Galaxy Note 6. As far as we know, nothing has yet changed for the timeframe Samsung will unveil the device, which is still rumored to be August 2 in New York City. A bit more interesting, though, are the specs Blass listed recently onto his Twitter feed. If all of these specs are in fact making their way into the Note 7, fans of Samsung and the Note series should be pretty excited. (more…)
Back in February, we saw a first glimpse of a beta Marshmallow running on AT&T’s variant of the Galaxy Note 5. February. Today is June 22 and AT&T is finally pushing the stable update to not only the Note 5, but to its brother, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ as well.
The update is arriving as a big 1.4GB file that seems to be available to most owners of the phone. Heading into Settings>About phone to check for the update will likely allow you to pull it. (more…)
Back in April, Samsung announced that its Gear 360 camera, a device that will probably be the best 360-degree VR camera on the block, was headed to select countries. At the time, they failed to provide pricing or when anyone in the US could buy it. Now, as we close in on the end of June, we are one step closer to knowing all when it comes to US availability. We know a price!
According to Samsung, the Gear 360 will cost a semi-steep, but-sort-of-expectedly-steep price of $349.99. The device goes on sale in the US today…sort of. (more…)
As the first wave of rumors arrived for Samsung’s Gear Fit 2, I’ve got to be honest in admitting that I was not at all excited. In fact, I probably winced, shook my head a couple of times, and contemplated schemes that would force Tim to review it. I say that because I had the
displeasure of reviewing the first version of the Gear Fit, a fitness wearable that was a terrible fitness tracker with a cool display. But then we had a chance to spend some time with the Gear Fit 2 during a media briefing and I was immediately sold on this latest version for a number of reasons.
Let’s talk about what you get with the Gear Fit 2 and if that initial hype stuck with me through to this review. This is our Gear Fit 2 review. (more…)
