The boxy design of Samsung’s Galaxy S Ultra phones is boss

We’ve been critical on more than one occasion about how the boxy design of the Galaxy S22 Ultra is a detriment to comfortable usage (especially with one hand). The boxy design is a result of the Galaxy S Ultra lineup absorbing the Galaxy Note’s best feature, the S Pen stylus, and the Galaxy S Ultra […]

I don’t care about your S Pen, Samsung

Ever since the Galaxy Note line was killed off, the S Pen has become less of an exclusive feature for Samsung phones and more of a standard feature that you get if buy either of its costliest two phones (a Galaxy S Ultra or a Galaxy Z Fold) every year. The Galaxy S22 Ultra came […]

The company’s other sustainability initiatives have included a self-repair program for customers in the US, sustainable packaging materials, and increasing energy efficiency in products. When Samsung first announced that it would provide three years of Android OS upgrades, it said […]

When will Chinese Android manufacturers get it that specs don’t matter all that much?

It’s no secret that it’s not just Apple that Samsung has to compete against in the smartphone market. Samsung also has to go up against pretty much every Chinese manufacturer, especially in markets like India where Chinese manufacturers have taken a foothold thanks to how aggressively they price their phones while dangling dazzling impressive spec […]

The next Galaxy phone you buy should be special and worth your cash

Call us biased but if you asked us to recommend a smartphone, we’d tell you to buy a Samsung Galaxy. The Korean giant objectively makes some of the best phones on the market. It’s the lone dominant Android smartphone manufacturer. There is no other Android OEM that makes the kind of variety and ships the […]

Why the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is your new iPhone 14

You might be scratching your head at this, but bear with us for a moment. Unless you’re fully locked into the Apple ecosystem, chances are you buy an iPhone for the prestige that’s attached to the device. In many parts of the world, having an iPhone is a status symbol. There hasn’t been any other […]

Is Samsung and Google’s marriage of convenience under pressure?

It often feels that Samsung and Google have a marriage of convenience. The latter is the owner of the Android platform and obviously wants to have full control over the future of the platform. Samsung is the largest vendor of Android-powered smartphones and it has its own vision for smartphone software. However, both have been […]

Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is Samsung’s secret weapon to win over watch lovers

After Apple, Samsung is the only company making smartwatches that have now developed a pedigree. The company has been doing this for several years now. Samsung’s smartwatches have come a long way. Its decision to modernize the round shape of “normal” watches for smartwatches with the Galaxy Watch series was an industry-defining moment. There are […]

Samsung shouldn’t have rushed into cancelling the Galaxy Note series

It’s no secret that the Galaxy Note series has long been a cash cow for the company. The lineup has built up a loyal fan base across the globe. Other Samsung flagships may have had their fans, but none commanded the kind of loyalty that this series did. There was a very good reason for […]

Samsung just needs to keep doing what it’s doing to absolutely crush rivals

Samsung knows a thing or two about making smartphones. The company has been doing it for a very long time. It may not have been the first to start making Android-powered smartphones but it has since become the manufacturer that defines what an Android smartphone can be. From old school flip phones to sliders, modern […]

Why Samsung might want to pause the Exynos project

It feels as though Samsung’s Exynos chipset division is digging itself into a deeper hole with every new SoC it develops. The Exynos 2200 was perhaps an even bigger disappointment than the Exynos 2100 despite the partnership with AMD, so maybe it’s time for Samsung to step away for a while and go back to […]

Samsung Galaxy flagships losing to Apple’s iPhone seems inevitable

Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra is doing relatively well. It was the most successful Android smartphone in April, but it was the only Samsung flagship to reach the top 10. And although the Korean tech giant leads the smartphone market in terms of total shipments, Apple is the clear winner in the flagship segment. Samsung is […]

Samsung doesn’t seem to care about its most loyal customers anymore

Customer loyalty is very difficult to achieve. A business has to do a lot of things right so that it can keep them coming back over and over again. This is a challenge that unites all businesses, regardless of the industry they’re in. Samsung has been incredible at igniting loyalty in its customers. It’s a […]

Why Samsung’s insecurities about its foldables bother me

We discussed recently how Samsung’s foldable phone buyers are treated like second-class customers. It’s doing a less than stellar job with customer support for these devices, particularly for repairs. All of Samsung’s foldable smartphones come with a pre-applied screen protector on the foldable display. Customers are actively discouraged from replacing the protector themselves. This screen […]

Goodbye Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, hello there, Galaxy Z Fold 3!

After using the Galaxy S22 Ultra for three months, I’ve decided to switch back to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 due to several reasons. I was hardly able to contain my glee as I took my Galaxy Z Fold 3 out of its resting place while saying “Hello There” to the device in my best […]
