Samsung Galaxy S6 a bigger loss for Qualcomm than expected

It was in January this year when Qualcomm divulged that a major manufacturer had backed out of using their new Snapdragon 810 processors/chipsets, something that would negatively impact their bottom line for the quarter, if not the year. They did not name the company, but Samsung had made an announcement that they would be using their own Exynos processors for this year’s flagship, the Galaxy S6. It’s not that difficult to put two and two together.

Samsung releases their first omnidirectional wireless speaker

For audiophiles and those who want to show off their sweet multi-media set-up at their pad, the speaker placement can sometimes cause much stress and debate (if you live with other people). The perfect placement, that "sweet spot" (aurally speaking), the limited space to place everything in, all contribute to problems and challenges of having the perfect media room. Samsung says they have found the solution to this problem with their first omnidirectional wireless speaker called the Wireless Audio Radiant 360 R7.

When the big screen iPhone 6 Plus came out, some buyers learned the hard way that you have to be careful how you carry the smartphone in the pocket. The larger iPhone was bending under pressure and testing by Square trade found that it took about 100 pounds of pressure to permanently bend the iPhone 6 Plus.

Never doubted the Galaxy Note 4 is getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop. It's just a matter of waiting for the official rollout from mobile carriers and in different countries. We've seen a preview already and that it after being updated to Android 5.0, it will soon receive the Android 5.0.1 version. A couple of months ago, the sweet update was received in Poland and just last week, AT&T's Galaxy Note 4 got the Lollipop as well.

Here’s yet another Samsung Galaxy S6 edge Drop Test

A recent water test has already proven that the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is water-resistant but not waterproof. The smartphone is also faster than the iPhone 6 when compared in a speed test. We know the phone is rough and tough too after surviving that brutal drop test. We agreed that there is a more proper and scientific way to stress test a phone--the same way OPPO tested the OPPO R5 and OPPO N3. But you know, there are geeks who find joy in abusing some gadgets.

Water test shows Galaxy S6 edge is water-resistant, not waterproof

After seeing that brutal harsh test yesterday, we're pretty convinced that the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is really tough. Another test even showed us that it's faster than the iPhone 6.  The smartphone is not mainly a rugged phone because the South Korean giant has the Galaxy S6 Active coming soon all rugged and waterproof. Unlike the Galaxy S5 model, both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are not officially waterproof/water-resistant but this water test proves otherwise, sort of.
