With the Galaxy S8, Samsung says goodbye to smaller screens

Six months ago, I wrote a post about the Galaxy S7 edge and the Galaxy Note 7 being more alike than ever, that it’s a good thing, and that Samsung had reasons for unifying both the S and Note series in its large “Galaxy.” I also said in that same column that Samsung has been […]

This company’s Edge Sense affirms Samsung’s innovative mindset

We like to think of “common sense” as something everyone has, but I was told years ago that not everyone has it. That proves true on one level, though, for innovation in tech is a matter of common sense. Consumers that invest in mobile devices year in and year out expect companies to take the […]
