Can Samsung’s Galaxy S5 Be the Ultimate Phone?

Here is how and why. The Galaxy S5 features a battery pack with a capacity of 2.800 mAh combined with a greatly reduced power consumption. It does not stop here: If you’re in an emergency with fading charge, you can turn to Ultra Power Saving mode in order to make the final 10% of your battery juice last for hours. You’d say that there’s nothing new practically here, but when you combine the three features, you get one hell of a battery life on a smartphone. The S5 is also dust and ...

Samsung Now Has Its Own Music Streaming Service: Milk

Samsung has decided to throw their hat into the online music service game with their own internet radio called: Milk Music. Milk because fresh, apparently, inspired by Samsung's new refreshed UI design. The service is already available from the Google Play store, boasting ad-free music, but will only work on Samsung devices. For now Milk is only compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S4, S3, Note 3, Note 2, and the GS4 Active and Mini.

Phabulous? Samsung Galaxy Note 3 & Gear Review

This Galaxy Note is the third of its kind. I still remember when the first Galaxy Note came out, how everybody was skeptical about its success. Everyone said this phone was definitely too big to go mainstream. We're far from that time now. The Note has established itself as a strong alternative to "standard" smartphones. It also created a whole new handheld Tech segment: the Phablets. Despite early sizeist mockery, Samsung was able to ship about 38 million Note devices worldwide, and is now sending ...

Samsung Galaxy Round Debute

Curved not flat apparently is Samsung's new technique. With the release of also their new flip phone, I guess Samsung is tackling all angles literally. Users can take advantage of the new "roll effect" which entitles them to check the battery, time, messages and other notifications by tapping at their phones. At 5.7 inches the curved beauty is hopefully smooth on the face rather than an awkward suction cup. The camera is reported to be the same the Samsung S4 as in 13 MP, yet features a 2.3GHz ...

Samsung Flip Phone?

Yes, flip phones apparently are still being considered while making new devices. Which is OK I guess, specially when they also contain  Snapdragon 800 CPUs. Samsung has published images of the SM-W2014" — another Asia-bound flip phone from the Korean manufacturer. Mind you this isn't the classic flip phone. This "new" phone packs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB of RAM , dual 3.67-inch, WVGA (480x800) SuperAMOLED screens,a 13-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facer and ...

Note 3 and Galaxy Gear Launched in Lebanon

Press releases and launching events are something we like at Tech-Ticker, and being invited by Samsung Lebanon to the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear is something we were extremely psyched about. We got at Le Royal Hotel, to find the whole Samsung Levant team busy with the final event preparations. We actually found the Note 3 very appealing, and the Gear was very interesting to test. We gladly received our Note 3 review unit, but the gear will be following later on, unfortunately. Beirut, ...

BBM Hits Samsung Android Phones Friday

Samsung is planning to take the lead this time by launching its BBM application in Africa this Friday, September 20th. The company confirmed the news a few days ago when it announced that its customers in Africa will have access to BBM via the Samsung Messaging Hub on Friday. Not only that, but rumors also speculate that Samsung will have exclusive BBM access for around 3 months. Take that iPhones! But why Africa? Apparently it is where the BBM service is most popular, so why not start at the ...

Nokia’s Windows Phone Handsets Outsell iPhones in Middle East

Every now and then I get this question about whether iPhone is better than Samsung or is this HTC a good devices and so on. People all seem more and more interested in knowing which is the best phone and how do they all compare to each other from a specification perspective. But how about we try and look at the big picture for a little and see how all those devices are doing against each other in terms of market share in the Middle East region?

The phone will be sporting the ARM 64-bit processor, and according to Samsung, will not be popping out of nowhere soon. Rumors speculate that the first phone featuring this capability would be the new Galaxy S5. But only time can tell.

Galaxy S4 Zoom Review

So remember the glory days of Nokia, when a new phone would come out, and then it would be followed by the same phone and an "i"? (take example the n93 and the n93i) Supposedly the same phone with a better camera. Well, Samsung tried to do the exact thing with their Samsung S4, and I'm disappointed to announce they failed. Now I'm not saying that the phone is not a nifty device, I'm simply stating this is not actually a S4 with a better camera. When I first introduced you to the Samsung S4 Zoom ...

First Look at the Samsung Galaxy Gear

Goodbye rumors and hello facts. With the official Samsung press release it was time to look at another gadget of the future, smartphone watches, in this case the Galaxy Gear. First thing first, this is not a stand alone watch, owners have to sync this device with a Samsung phone or tablet ( which also will get their own update ). Also some of the leaked features were wrong, starting with the shape and hardware specifications. The galaxy gear has the following : 1.9 Mp Camera for videos up to 720 ...

Samsung Launches a Tablet for Kids

Flexible Megapixels: Samsung Galaxy NX

Do not get misguided by the title. We do not mean flexible as in "bendy", and we're not dealing with those flexible displays you might have heard of, lately. We only meant flexible as in an interchangeable-lensed camera that runs Android and sporting 4G and Wifi chips. Now that is flexible. We had the chance to quickly hold the device and test it for a few minutes. Here's our quick call summary on it. The Galaxy NX is a 20.3MP APS-C Sensor camera, with RAW shooting, up to 1/6000th second ...

Retrospective: The Samsung Story

They cracked the screens and cases with heavy hammers. Then they lit a bonfire and threw everything in. Workers lost in the haze of their own sorrow and distress, crying. And still the hardware to be crushed and eliminated kept coming. Snap! Let me draw you a picture of what's happening. Samsung's CEO was disgusted by the low quality product coming out of his factories in the early 1990s and, in a blaze of anger, ordered it all destroyed. This did actually happen. For real. Some twenty years ago, ...

The Samsung Galaxy S4 ZOOM

Is it a phone, is it a camera? No,it is the Galaxy S4 ZOOM. Samsung has taken another leap and created the first mobile phone with an optical zoom. And they didn't start slow, nope they went all 10x optical zoom. Now I haven't had the chance to actually grab the phone yet, but I thought I'd let you know what I found out about this so that you'd have a clue once it is in the market. For many people, who like me, are obsessed with photo quality having a tool for an optical zoom is always a benefit, ...

Unboxing The Galaxy S4

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of the most exposed phones currently, since it is the latest descendant in the line of the Galaxy S's, following the S, S II, and S III models. This phone was perceived as the device who will kiss goodbye the iPhone era, but, as usually expected, it didn't happen. Why? for many reasons: one being that this phone was not up to the expectations of the geeks, especially with the many gimmicky OS features that made this phone user experience feel really unstable. Even though ...

Oh god no, actually you can either use your front phone camera, but I always believed that those pictures tend to be less appealing. So why not try a two view camera? I’ve ...

An ultrabook that pops it’s top. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, hybrids and convertibles are the future laptops. I mean why not? To be able to have both a tablet and a desktop laptop in one device is and will always be a cool feature. Now personally I prefer hybrids over convertibles. The difference is that in a hybrid you can completely detach the keyboard, such as the Microsoft Surface Pro and the Samsung ATIV, meanwhile convertibles such as the Lenovo Yoga and the Dell XPS ...

The Eight-Inch Encounter: Mini Tablets

Tablets (the whole concept of computer slates) remain a mystery to me. I always was skeptical about the potential success of tablets. But history did prove me wrong, as tablets sales did plummet throughout the past few years. Even better: Medium-sized tablets also did well, even though the late Steve Jobs didn't believe they had a market. What is even worse for me is that the whole tablet thing is getting crazy, lately, with lots of iterations and sizes, from big to smaller, even smaller, to phablet-sized. ...

The World’s Biggest Phone: Samsung’s Galaxy Mega

Want a tablet and a phone, wrapped in one single nice shell? It might seem funny at first, but Samsung's Galaxy Mega could be one clever buy. Here's why: It's huge. It's humongous. With its 6.3 inches from corner to opposite corner, Samsung's big boy 720p screen is barely smaller than that of the Nexus 7. Not just this, it is simply sleeker, with less bezel real estate. Drawback would be... that's it's huge. You might look a bit ridiculous when holding it to your face. Unless your face is ...
