Samsung Galaxy Note 5 vs iPhone 6 Comparison

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 vs iPhone 6 Comparison

Is it really fair to compare a brand new phone to a phone that’s going to be succeeded in two weeks? No, but we’re going to do it anyway. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. This is a dark year for Android phones. The Snapdragon 810 is offering a poor experience and the Snapdragon 808 is nothing impressive.

iPhone 6 Beats Galaxy Note 5 in Speed Test

Dear Samsung: Please Don’t Use a 4K Display in the Note 5

By Rich W Woods Do you remember when the iPhone 4 launched? Steve Jobs presented the device, and always, the performance was legendary. No one can argue that Jobs was an amazing showman. The big feature of the iPhone 4 was that it would be the first iPhone to have a Retina display. Jobs explained that there was a certain pixel density, right around 325 ppi, where a user simply couldn’t tell the difference between…

Thoughts on Samsung’s New Galaxy S6 Edge Commercial

By Rich W Woods By now, most of us have seen the new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge commercial. It’s hard to ignore that it’s similar to Jony Ive talking about an Apple product. I wanted to share my thoughts on it. Also, please forgive the intro to the video. I didn’t double check before I compiled the video and I’ve lost the original clips to recompile it.

Samsung Admits Memory Issue on Galaxy S6

Samsung Admits Memory Issue on Galaxy S6

By Rich W Woods This just had to happen, didn’t it. The first Samsung phone that I found to be enjoyable, in the slightest, has a major problem. This problem is how the device deals with RAM. Normally, as you open new apps, the memory from the former apps should be freed up. In fact, that’s how all mobile operating systems work. Of course, Android focuses more on “true” multitasking, so those apps do tend…
