Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: The Best At Being Big

While Apple has only just released its first huge phone, Samsung’s gargantuan Note is already on its fourth iteration. In a lot of ways, it’s the big phone that started this runaway screen-size race. But even though it’s facing an ever-growing army of up-sized competitors, the Note 4 is the only giant phone that gets it right.


Samsung Releases Speed 'Restoration' Tool For EVO 840 SSDs

In September, Samsung acknowledged widespread user reports of performance issues with its 840 EVO range of solid state drives and that it was working on a fix. Now it’s come good on its word, releasing a utility to address the problem, but only for specific setups.


Inside The Galaxy Note 4's Virtual Reality Ambitions

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is now the best big phone you can buy, but it’s also something more. It’s the first smartphone designed with virtual reality in mind — just slot it into the Gear VR headset and a whole new world opens up. I say “the first” because I learnt something intriguing at Oculus Connect last month: Samsung is planning to build more.


Report: Samsung Has Made Rollable Batteries That Bend Into A Hoop

Wearables: great, apart from the fact that batteries last about five minutes. Samsung, though, may have a solution: it’s just announced a new type of battery that is so flexible that it can be rolled up into a hoop.


Samsung M3 Wireless Speaker: Australian Review

Samsung’s wireless multi-room speakers are a new addition to the market, but make for strong competition against the might of Sonos, as well as upstart competitors like LG’s Music Flow. As well as the largest M7 wireless speaker and mid-weight M5, Samsung has a new, smaller unit in the M3 — made for bedrooms, smaller apartments, and spaces where you can’t fit a big hulking music box.


Samsung Galaxy Note 4 And Note Edge Delayed In Australia

Are you waiting for a shiny new Samsung Galaxy Note 4? (We are, definitely, with bated breath.) Unfortunately, Samsung Australia has a bit of bad news for you — the new phone, along with its curvy Note Edge variant, is delayed by a week Down Under, so you’ll have to wait slightly longer.


Samsung Claims To Have Invented A Way To Make Wi-Fi Five Times Faster

As our home internet speeds increase with the advent of fibre networks and super-fast 4G networks, a new bottleneck is emerging in the quest for speed: our home Wi-Fi connections. Thankfully, Samsung scientists are on the case, and claim to have a technology which can boost Wi-Fi speeds up to 4.6Gbps.


LG Gets Into Multi-Room Audio With Music Flow

Sonos has been the king of multi-room audio for a decade, but Samsung is making quick inroads with its own multi-speaker range. LG wants a piece of that pie too, and has four new multi-room audio speakers, and a wireless receiver to tie it all together, out in a few days.


Samsung Galaxy Alpha Review: Beautiful, Comfortable, Flawed

Technology obsession can border on the pornographic. Extreme close-ups capture every detail, gushing over every curve. People describe soulless bits of plastic and metal as “attractive” and “stunning.” (We draw the line at “sexy.”) For a premium smartphone to make it in this vain consumer world, it needs to look the part. That’s what Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha is all about.


Samsung Galaxy Alpha Teardown: Lots Of Glue Makes For Tricky Repairs

The master disassemblers at iFixit have applied their expertise at turning gadgets into piles of raw components to the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. And while not chock full of surprises, the lack of an official waterproof IP67 rating — like the Galaxy S5 boasts — didn’t stop Samsung from being generous with the glue, which makes repairing the Galaxy Alpha a bit more challenging.
