Everybody is excited and prepping for the launch of Samsung’s newest flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S6, and local carriers like Vodafone in Netherlands is no exception.

Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 810 taking some heat

Pardon the pun in the title, will you?

Samsung developing a wearable sensor to detect strokes

A stroke is what you call it when a small blood clot makes its way into the tiny blood vessels in the brain and gets stuck. Once those tiny vessels are blocked, blood flow to part of the brain stops and that part of the brain can be permanently damaged if not treated quickly. With quick treatment, medications can dissolve the clot and return the person to their normal life. Without treatment, people can be disabled for the remainder of their life or die.

Official-looking Lollipop firmware for Samsung Galaxy S4 leaked

We all know that for all of Samsung’s tech nous, the South Korean company can’t very well launch the most recent Lollipop firmware versions for all their top-of-the-line devices at the same time.
