Classic devices get Android 5.1, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy S II

Two old warhorses are getting a taste of Lollipop these days – the Motorola Xoom, one of Motorola (and Verizon’s) first premium tablets, and the Samsung Galaxy S II, the smartphone that started global smartphone domination for Samsung. These devices are ancient by current standards and have no right to be running the latest and greatest Android version, but it is a testament to their robust hardware design and the commitment of aftermarket software developers that this is even possible.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 not eligible for Android 5.0 Lollipop

Since rumors about the Galaxy Note 5 are going around, this could also mean the previous Note models from Samsung are getting older each day. For one, the Galaxy Note 2 is almost three years old now having been introduced at the IFA Berlin in August 2012. Sadly, a mobile device of that age usually cannot be easily upgraded to the latest Android software version because it may not have the minimum hardware requirements.

Shangai commission files case against Samsung, Oppo

Have you ever bought a new smartphone, excitedly unboxed it, then immediately got annoyed when you saw that the manufacturer pre-installed so many apps that you won't use anyway? And some of them can't even be uninstalled? Well, finally, a court has accepted that such an occurrence deserves legal action against the OEMs. That is, if you live in Shanghai, China. A commission has filed a case against Samsung and Oppo for pre-installing apps without informing consumers of their existence on their new devices.

Level Up with Samsung’s new Level U wireless Bluetooth headset

Samsung's Level series of speakers and audio accessories will be adding another member to its family with another device that you can take with you wherever you will go. The new Level U Wireless Bluetooth headset has the latest Samsung audio technology, plus a stylish although not so inconspicuous look, and it also promises a long battery life, despite the Bluetooth connectivity which can be notoriously draining on devices. It can also be used as a headset for your calls and can be used with apps that have Text-to-Speech functions.

Samsung files trademark for Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in the US

Samsung's latest flagship phones, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, caught the world's attention because of their great design, premium specs and impressive performance. Another variant, the Galaxy S6 Active, was soon released and looks like another S6 variant is coming. Last month, we learned a tip of a possible Galaxy S6 Edge Plus with a larger screen. We heard the new smartphone will be out this coming August.

Android top in the US but not Europe; Galaxy S6 sales boost Samsung

We've been wondering if the good reviews of Samsung's new flagship, the Galaxy S6 will translate to sales to help boost the previous smartphone champs. The number (at least from Kantar) are in, and it looks like they have indeed helped the OEM regain top spot in the US, becoming the third best-selling smartphone in the country, just after the iPhone 6 and Samsung's previous flagship, the Galaxy S5. Android has also continued to regain the top spot in the US when it comes to sales, but in Europe's big five, it's still a no go.

Samsung and RSC bring Shakespeare to the digital generation

While Shakespeare indeed holds up through time (well, most of his work anyway), this new generation may not be as keen to learn or appreciate his plays, sonnets, and what not, except if it has been adapted in a more modern or contemporary setting or language. But Samsung and The Royal Shakespeare Company believe that it is time to bring the Bard, or at least one of his most well-known plays onto our mobile devices with the RE: Shakespeare app.

Samsung Galaxy A8 hands-on video leaked, maybe from TENAA

We've heard a lot about the upcoming mid-range Samsung Galaxy A8, including certification details from China's TENAA. But a new leaked video is probably the closest we're getting to actually seeing and touching the (hopefully) soon to be launched phablet. And surprisingly enough, it might also have come from TENAA, giving a bit of "credibility" to the product show on the video. It may have just confirmed some of the things we've known about the Galaxy A8 and given us a glimpse of what to actually expect.

Samsung Galaxy S6 real-life usage speed test by TomGuide

If you still doubt Samsung's marketing machinery that's saying their new flagship, the Galaxy S6, is the best new smartphone in the market, then this might just convince you. (Only if you believe in tests like this though) According to the usage speed test conducted by TomsGuide, Samsung's new baby is the best among almost all the categories or situations where they tested six flagships from various OEMs, namely, the LG G4, iPhone 6, HTC One M9, Google Nexus 6, and the Asus ZenFone 2.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 looks premium with rugged build

We’ve heard a number of rumors about the Galaxy Note 5 but one of the most notable information is that it will be used for the next Samsung Galaxy Gear VR. Apparently, a version for the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, the Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition, went ahead but we’re still expecting another version of the next-gen Note model to be unveiled at the upcoming Samsung Unpacked event during this year's IFA. By August or September, we hope to see this Note 5 complete with premium specs such as the highest pixel density ever in a smartphone.
