Samsung’s Note 4 ready for release, with a bigger screen and a softer Edge

Slick screen: Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S 10.5 reviewed

More than just another tablet in its long running Galaxy Tab range, the Tab S is a reinvention with a screen that will make your eyes go wow and a weight that outshines even Apple’s iPad.

Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha announced, with metal and uber-fast speeds

We’ve long been complaining that Samsung’s take on the premium smartphone should be focused more on premium materials like metal, compared to the plastics Samsung uses, and it looks like the company has finally listened with a new handset.

Zoom, zoom: Samsung’s Galaxy K Zoom 10x optical camera phone reviewed

Cameras and phones have well and truly merged by now, but has the phone really replaced the camera? Not yet, as far as Samsung is concerned, but that could change with its latest release, the K Zoom, which integrates a 10x optical zoom 20 megapixel camera with — you guessed it — a phone.

Samsung returns control of the shortcut dock, but why all of a sudden?

Great news, Samsung phone owners: control of the dock is back, as an update to this year’s flagship — the Galaxy S5 — returns ownership of the shortcut dock squarely to the consumer, but why now when it’s been locked for so long?

Samsung’s K Zoom camera phone hits Australia

Smartphone cameras are improving, but almost all of them lack optical zoom, one of the things you need if you want to get close. A new Samsung phone could fix this, however, bundling 10x optical into something that has more in common with a phone than a camera.

Black and white: does Samsung’s monochrome mode save battery life?

When Samsung rolled out its Galaxy S5, the surprise wasn’t the camera or the screen or even all the fitness tech. No, it was the ultra power saving mode, and how you could cut the colours to save on battery life, but is this tech really helping you save?
