Is the Galaxy Note 7’s iris scanner and S Pen worth the extra cash?

The next big thing is here, again, and we’re left to bask in the aftermath of Samsung’s second device announcement. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is here, and with it comes some interesting new features, but also an inflated price tag. Don’t get me wrong, the Note 7 is less than $100 more on AT&T than the S7 Edge (a.k.a. Galaxy Note 7 beta), so even a little bit more can ...

Is there still a place for the Galaxy Note in Samsung’s flagship lineup?

Galaxies keep getting bigger while the Notes stay the same. Samsung basically has two flagships – the Galaxy S and the Galaxy Note. But recently with the emergence of the Galaxy S7 Edge, worlds started to collide a little bit. But, to be fair, this is only after Samsung decided to muddy the waters a bit. Samsung took its successful Edge phone to the phablet stage with the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, and released it along side its main phablet offering – the Galaxy Note 5. Then, this past spring, the Galaxy S7 Edge came out and it wasn’t too far away from the Galaxy S6 Edge plus in size or ...

Samsung tries to rain on Apple’s parade with series of mocking tweets

The day everyone’s been waiting for has finally come… and gone. Everyone but Samsung, that is, as well as presumably other Android device manufacturers which will no doubt be hurt by Apple’s highly anticipated iPhone 6s and 6s Plus launches.In keeping with tradition, Cupertino’s arch-rival was not silent during the glitzy San Francisco press event, starting its latest in a long line of Twitter tirades as

Samsung, it’s time to bring the S Pen to a smaller device

The S Pen is one of the defining features of Samsung’s tremendously popular Galaxy Note series. Along with the characteristically large display, it’s what gives the line its name, and though not every owner of a Note uses the S Pen, for some people it’s an invaluable tool that makes other phones feel almost unusable by comparison. Back when the first Galaxy Note was announced, the idea of ...

Samsung hit all the right points with the Galaxy Note 4

To date, I’ve used all of Samsung’s Galaxy Note devices. I’ve owned two of the three previous Galaxy Note smartphones – the original and Galaxy Note II – and loved them both. I really enjoyed the Galaxy Note 3, as well, but never felt compelled to buy it for personal use. But I’ll get into that in a second.All year, I’ve been waiting – like many of you – to see what the Galaxy Note 4 is all about.I

OEMs, just forget about the capacitive stylus already

The stylus has had a pretty traumatic life. It was a necessary tool back in the beginning of the smartphone and PDA era, as mobile operating systems weren’t designed with stubby fingertips in mind. Rather, buttons, soft keyboards, and entire UIs were fixated beneath resistive touch screens, which didn’t discriminate between a user’s fleshy digits or retractable pen tips.Quite literally, you could use just about any ol’ object as a stylus, so long as it was strong enough to squeeze the protective plastic coating and digitizer together. The finer the point, the ...

The advantages of carrying an oversized smartphone

The big phones only get bigger, it seems. We’ve been clamoring over gigantic phones since the original Galaxy Note announcement, and possibly even before that over phones which are now comparably quite small. Personally, I’ve been carrying large phones since January 2012, not long after the original Galaxy Note made its way stateside. And I’ve been back and forth between loving and hating giant phones ever ...

Top 5 annoying things about Tablets in 2013

Let’s face it, tablets aren’t perfect. We’ve had numerous editorials talking about it, and we don’t think twice about pointing these imperfections out in our reviews. Surely in life nothing is perfect, but there are surely those companies that try harder, and those that don’t. There are companies that’ll charge you the same amount of money for lesser quality products than others, and there are those that would rather lose a premium in oder to sell you what you paid for. Now that said, tablets aren’t new. We’ve used them for over a decade, and it’s interesting to note that ...

Hey, OEMs: either do a stylus right, or not at all

We’re finally going full-circle on the stylus. Back in the Windows Mobile days, the stylus was king, and if you wanted any kind of precision with that less-than-touch-friendly UI on those tiny screens, you absolutely had to have one. But as capacitive displays rose to prominence, the once-noble stylus fell by the wayside, sticking out like a sore thumb, a banner of a previous era. As the years went on, the stylus seemed to fade away from our collective consciousness, but then a little over two years ago, at the 2011 IFA, Samsung debuted the original Galaxy Note with its S Pen. Since ...
