  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ review

    It’s true, you’ve got the Galaxy Note to thank for your big phone. When the device hit the scene at IFA 2011, large screens were still a punchline. That same year, Steve Jobs famously joked about phones with screens larger than four inches, telling a crowd of reporters, “nobody’s going to buy that.” In 2019, […]

    New numbers out of Canalys show strong continued growth for the North America wearables market for Q2.

  • Xiaomi tops Indian smartphone market for eighth straight quarter

    Xiaomi has now been India’s top smartphone seller for eight straight quarters. The company has become a constant headache for Samsung in the world’s second largest smartphone market as sales have slowed pretty much everywhere else in the world.

  • Samsung’s Note 10 game streaming arrives in August

    Update: Samsung has since adjusted timing. The app will be available this month, not early September as originally reported. PlayGalaxy Link got fleetingly little stage time at last week’s Unpacked event.

  • The smartwatch category is growing, as Apple remains dominant

    Last week Samsung and Fossil kicked off the week by announcing new smartwatches. On the same day. At the same time. For a brief moment, it felt like 2015 all over again, when the world of smartwatches felt exciting and new. Mid-way through 2019, the good news for smartwatches is that the category continues to […]

  • Samsung is bringing PC game streaming to the Note 10

    One of the more interesting news tidbits from yesterday’s Unpacked event got a bit drowned out in all of the noise. Understandably so — Samsung jammed a lot into an event that ran just over an hour, virtually sprinting through a handful of gaming announcements. The below video is the best demonstration we have of […]
