April 10 is here! Did you order your Apple Watch yet? Errr, that’s not what we care about. What is happening today….oh yeah! Star Wars is now available digitally! No…well, that’s awesome news, but that’s not what we care about either at this moment. Ahh yes, it’s Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and HTC One M9 day! Did you get/order yours?
Below, we have links for all and to each carrier, in case you can’t figure out how to use Google Search.
If you need more info, well, we have that too. Our Galaxy S6 Review is out. That’s probably a must read. Our One M9 review will be here next week. We also have who knows how many videos of each phone over at our YouTube channel. Go watch them. Here is a pricing breakdown of the Galaxy S6s. Fun stuff. (more…)
According to Samsung’s firmware website, the Sprint variant of the Galaxy Note 3 is receiving its Lollipop update, labeled as version PVPUEOC5. Inside, Android 5.0 is the OS of choice, not to be mistaken with Android 5.0.2 or Android 5.1. This is apparently pure Android 5.0. (more…)
The Samsung Galaxy S6 hasn’t even officially launched yet (tomorrow is launch day) and T-Mobile has already seen sales of it nearly double that of the Galaxy S5, which was previously the most popular Galaxy phone ever at the carrier. We are talking the first 10 days of availability, but then again, we are also talking a pre-order period. I would imagine those numbers will only increase once the phone becomes widely available. (more…)
Earlier this week, the Moto G Google Play Edition began receiving its update to Android 5.1. You probably thought, “Well, what about the others, like the Ones, Galaxy S4, and Z Ultra?” Don’t worry, most of them are now receiving the update as well. (more…)
During their MWC press event, after teasing the world for weeks prior, Samsung stood on stage and presented two phones they were extremely proud of. You could tell by the presentation that these phones were going to bring them back. There wasn’t a Broadway play. There wasn’t a gimmick in sight. Samsung ran through a list of features, design elements, and changes from past thinking as directly as they could because nothing needed to be hidden or glanced over. There was no need for a distraction.
They hammered home the fact that these phones were faster than anything they had done prior. They cut bloat. They removed jank. They built them with the best materials available. They included tech that no other phone(s) before or after will have for some time. They won that day and then some. They may have won the year with a single presentation alone. After a horrendous 2014, Samsung needed to do something major for 2015. They did it. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are remarkable phones from top to bottom, edge to edge.
We have spent time with each over the past couple of weeks, trying to find something missing or deal breaking. If you want a spoiler alert as we dive into this, here it is – we didn’t find one.
This is our Samsung Galaxy S6 Review.
Edit: Our Galaxy S6 Edge review is done too. (more…)
Samsung Galaxy S5 owners on AT&T should see their devices updated to Android 5.0 “Lollipop” today, as the carrier now seems ready to push the long-awaited update to owners. As stated, this is Android 5.0, not to be mistaken with Android 5.1, Android 5.0.1, or Android 5.0.2. Yes, this is barebones Android 5.0, according to AT&T’s changelog. (more…)
While the rest of the US carriers who opened up pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge found a way to ship those early orders early, Verizon remained poised. They would not follow. They are a leader after all. A leader, people. Leaders don’t ship early unless they are first to ship. And since they also wouldn’t follow in the March 27 pre-order day that every other carrier adopted and instead chose to lead by doing their own April 1 day, there was no way they were following with early shipments. Leaders lead. Not follow.
So, the leader in later-than-other-carrier shipments is now shipping pre-orders. According to a handful of our readers, those pre-orders are expected to arrive on April 10, which is the global launch day for Samsung’s new flagships. (more…)
For owners of the Samsung Galaxy S4 on AT&T, today is a good day for you. Starting now, AT&T is pushing out the Android 5.0.1 OTA update, taking you from Android 4.4.4 “Kit Kat” all of the way to Lollipop. Yippee. (more…)
