05/17/2013, Samsung had previously released its TecTiles programmable NFC tags for its Galaxy S3 around this time last year, but unfortunately with the release of the Galaxy S4, its TecTiles didn’t support its latest and greatest smartphone. But today, Samsung is releasing its new TecTiles 2 NFC tags that fully support the Galaxy S4. The new TecTiles 2 NFC tags will work similar to how the original tags worked and is […]
04/10/2013, The Samsung Galaxy S4 is slowly making its way to U.S. carriers in the coming weeks as a number of them have already started slashing the price of their in-stock Galaxy S3s in preparation, and today, we’re starting to see a number of commercials starting to roll out promoting the “next big thing.” The 60-second U.K. ad focuses primarily on the Samsung Galaxy S4′s hardware by showcasing the device in many, […]
01/14/2013, It is no secret that Samsung’s Galaxy S-series of Android handsets are its most popular out of the lot. Kicking things off with the first Galaxy S device, followed by the Galaxy S2 and Galaxy S3, and come 2013 it is safe to say that the Galaxy S4 will be one of the most highly-anticipated smartphones of the year. That being said, Samsung has announced that they have hit a […]
11/28/2012, The Samsung Galaxy S I9001 is not exactly one of those devices out there which you would fall in love with at first glance, and it is definitely far from the glamorous Galaxy S3 when it comes to popularity at this point in time. Well, it seems that there is a rather big port that is being worked upon, which will eventually see the increasingly popular FlymeOS being ported over, […]
08/28/2012, We saw the Nikon Coolpix S800c embrace the Android operating system despite being a camera first and foremost, so it is not surprising to hear of other hardware manufacturers making the attempt to jump aboard the Android-powered camera bandwagon – and Samsung might very well make such an announcement at IFA 2012 which is happening in Berlin, Germany, through the introduction of their Galaxy S camera to the world. The […]
04/01/2012, Samsung might have thrown in the towel when it comes to updating the Galaxy S smartphone to run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but that does not mean that the homebrew community feel the same. No sir, as evident by what Cyanogenmod 9 offers – this latest alpha build for the Galaxy S has already been uploaded to the project’s servers, and do bear in mind that this is […]
01/30/2012, While everybody is looking forward to the Galaxy S3, it looks like Samsung has other plans up its sleeve before it unveils its upcoming flagship phone. Today, the company introduced the Samsung Galaxy S Advance. While it’s no quad-core phone, it looks like it’s going to be a mid-range phone that can hold its own. It packs a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 4″ (480 x 800) Super AMOLED display, Android […]
01/10/2012, Despite the Samsung Galaxy S putting Samsung on the map in terms of Android smartphones, the Korean manufacturer didn’t show a lot of love for the phone when it came to pushing out updates for the device – especially for the American variants of the device. Regardless of whether it was the fault of the carriers or Samsung, the Galaxy S was infamous for not having Android 2.2 (Froyo) for […]
01/03/2012, We’ve previously reported that Samsung will not be bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to the Galaxy S phone, and will be delivering a “Value Pack” instead. However it looks like all that has been a misunderstanding according to the folks at XDA-developers. One of their readers, a Korean-speaker, read the Korean announcement which had its original message lost in translation. Apparently the message was supposed to state that the “Value Pack” […]
12/28/2011, Just yesterday we reported that due to overwhelming negative responses from their customers, Samsung announced that they would rethink their decision about not including the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S in their Android 4.0 upgrade plans. As it turns out, it looks like Samsung may be firm in their resolve to not bring Android 4.0 to said devices, but will instead offer a “Value Pack” to the Galaxy S (it […]
12/27/2011, We may have started the Christmas weekend off to some bad news, which was basically how Samsung announced that the Galaxy Tab and the Galaxy S would not be receiving the Android 4.0 update. Naturally there are still plenty of Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S owners out there who may have felt somewhat shortchanged based on this announcement, but if the reports are right, Samsung may be reconsidering their stance […]
12/22/2011, While Samsung has chosen not to officially support the original Galaxy S when it comes to dishing out Android Ice Cream Sandwich, the folks over at XDA-developers aren’t giving up hope and are hard at work doing it themselves. They’ve finally come up with the first release candidate version of the Samsung Galaxy S Ice Cream Sandwich ROM.
12/01/2011, It took a long time for the Galaxy S phones in the US to receive Android 2.2 Froyo, so it’s no surprise that Gingerbread would take just as long as well. For those of you who own the Samsung Fascinate on Verizon, it looks like the day has come for you to finally get Gingerbread on your phones – provided you haven’t already done the job yourself by loading a […]
10/31/2011, For those who own slightly older Android devices and you’re worried about Ice Cream Sandwich not making its way onto your device, you can now add another phone to the list of Android smartphones that have received the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) port in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S.
