The Oscars 2014 feel like (are?) a commercial for Samsung, with Ellen DeGeneres flashing a Galaxy Note and taking selfies left right and center. It’s ridiculous. Backstage? She’s using her iPhone, of course. PR people will never learn.
Mobile World Congress is coming to a finish over in Barcelona. Phone makers are closing up their stands, pulling down company banners and sliding fingerprint-smudged handsets back into their packing crates. By all accounts, everything went off without a hitch. If you were following the events, though, there’s a solid chance you were left unimpressed.
“This is a bit disappointing,” the comment started. “The rumours were Exynos octa[-core] 64 bit, no bezel screen, 2K resolution, multiple SKUs with a premium metallic casing, 32 or 64GB internal storage, (not 16GB or 32GB),” it added, summarising the new Galaxy S5 by finishing, “we got none of this.

We love fitness trackers. I wear a couple myself both in my iPhone and Android devices, as well as devices from Jawbone and Fitbit on my wrist. But they don’t do anything. I’m still an overweight, sedentary guy who doesn’t work out enough, and I’m finding that between my Pebble and my Jawbone and my Fitbit, I have run out of wrist real estate. I would trade all of them, however, for the Samsung Gear Fit: this weirdly beautiful curved screen floats above your wrist.

It has been five years since Samsung executives first held aloft a device they thought would change the way people used phones. In those five years since, their prophecy has come true, and hundreds of millions of devices have been sold worldwide bearing the “Galaxy” moniker simultaneously making Samsung one of the most popular smartphone manufacturer in the world. Now we have the Galaxy S5 in our gadget-loving hands, and it’s the manufacturer’s best work yet.
