Samsung apps a turn-off according to report

The company might well be the world's most popular Android handset maker, but when it comes to offering its consumers apps they value, Samsung still has long way to go. Samsung's flagship phones come pre-installed with a host of in-house developed apps offering everything from social messaging to voice-activated search. And while ChatOn, the company's competitor to WhatsApp currently boasts 100 million active users, according to US research firm, Strategy Analytics, those users are accessing it on average for 0.1 minutes a month - that's six seconds.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 review

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 review

Being the world's largest smartphone brand is no easy job. Just ask Samsung. Not only does it have to ensure it is present across product categories and price points but also innovate continuously and look for new experiences or risk becoming tomorrow's Nokia or BlackBerry. Things get murkier when general consensus reckons that Samsung is not a trend creator but a follower, especially those set by Apple. That always leaves holes for a rival, that might not even exist today on a global scale, to suddenly spring up and catch Samsung by surprise. But it would be unfair of me to say Samsung does not innovate. Its "hit anything against the wall and see what sticks" attitude have had mixed results. The most recent ones like the Galaxy Gear smartwatch and the Galaxy Round smartphone with a curved display have been the butt of many jokes, but so was the first generation Galaxy Note, which was launched in late-2011 and most critics dismissed it (yours truly included) as being too big and unwieldy to use as a phone. Many were also bewildered for Samsung introducing stylus input, which was famously proclaimed dead by Steve Jobs when he unveiled the first iPhone in 2007. Many thought that Samsung was taking a step back with the Galaxy Note. Proving all critics wrong, Samsung has sold close to 40 million Galaxy Notes since then, which is massive, especially for what many consider to be a niche device. The Galaxy Note 3 continues the tradition of having an even bigger display than its predecessor, which now translates into 5.7-inches of full HD awesomeness. Its predecessor, the Galaxy Note II was in my books the best Android smartphone at the time of its launch. Can the Galaxy Note 3 be the same? More →

Samsung Galaxy Gear review

Samsung Galaxy Gear review

Top smartphone makers have a bit of a problem. They got so good at selling smartphones that there aren’t enough people left to buy them at the amazing pace the market has enjoyed over the past few years. The smartphone market is still monstrous, of course, but growth is key and growth is slowing. So for market leaders like Apple and Samsung, it’s time to look for the next big thing. According to a growing number of industry watchers, that “next big thing” is smartwatches and annual sales are already projected to explode into the hundreds of millions of units in the coming years. But are all these companies just trying to make fetch happen, or are wrist-worn devices like Samsung’s new Galaxy Gear smartwatch really the future of mobile computing? More →

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 311 review

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 311 review

When one thinks about purchasing an Android tablet, then choosing one is not an easy task. Buyers are spoilt for choice in terms of form factor, features and more importantly price. Of course, when one homes in on the sub-10-inch form-factor, the Google Nexus 7 becomes an obvious choice, but this year Samsung has also brought its Galaxy Tab 3 311 to the table flush with the new Galaxy S4 design language. With the Galaxy Tab 3 311 being able to double up as a phone as well, the Nexus 7 does not remain an obvious choice for a premium sub-10-inch Android tablet. That said, in typical Samsung fashion the user needs to deal with certain Samsung specific idiosyncrasies and the fact the Galaxy Tab 3 311 does not provide the top-of-the-line specsheet is a bummer. However, as always one does not judge a book by its cover and we ran the device through our test hoops. Read on to find out how it fared. More →
