Samsung Galaxy S5 Active Review

Think of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active (released May 2014, listed at $659 without contract by AT&T) as a stronger, tougher cousin of the Galaxy S5 (released April 2014). The Galaxy S5 Active dropped its predecessor S5’s fingerprint sensor, a security feature to augment the usual password protection. The effectiveness of the current fingerprint technology deployed by smartphone makers is debatable. (See “Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone fingerprint sensor hacked,” The […]


Samsung Chromebook 2 Review

The Chromebook fits between an iPad or Android tablet and a full-fledged laptop computer. While not quite as portable as a tablet, since it certainly can’t be used one handed, or with a table or at least a lap to rest it on, it does offer the potential for more functionality since it has a built in keyboard. One can argue, of course, that it’s easy enough to use a […]


Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Review

With the launch of the Tablet S 8.4 and 10.5 models, Samsung is fighting for the high-end tablet market. With an ultra-slim and ultra-light design, along with a formidable high-DPI Super-AMOLED display, it looks like a very strong contender for user willing to pay extra to get the best that Samsung’s industrial design can offer. How does it look like in the real world? We’ve used one for a few […]


Samsung 850 PRO 256GB Review

The revolution has arrived. Up to the release of the Samsung 850 PRO, the most common strategy was to shrink the die to increase higher bit densities in order to reduce cost and while offering higher capacity. Shrinking a planar layout can only take you so far.  Sure, 2D NAND does work and it is still widely used by the main SSD manufacturers. With consecutive “world first”, TLC and today V-NAND technology, Samsung […]

Samsung Galaxy NX Camera Review

Shortly before the first Galaxy Camera came out, we knew that Android cameras were going to land and stay. As cameras get smarter, the complexity of the software stack also becomes too hard to develop for camera makers (which are definitely NOT software-centric folks). Samsung is the company that has the best Android Camera offering today, and with the Galaxy NX, it just took the whole sector to the next […]


Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus Review

I started to take notice of Samsung as a laptop manufacturer when the company created its Series 9 brand of laptops that were designed to be ultra-thin and yet powerful at the same time. Although the naming has changed to ATIV Book 9 Plus last June, the goal has remained the same, and I was curious to see how Samsung’s top of the line mobile computer would fare in a […]

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Review

Starting back in 2011, Samsung decided it would enter the tablet market with its Galaxy Tab 10.1, which was a great Android tablet at the time. Then, Samsung upped its tablet game by coming out with the Galaxy Tab 2, which was slightly thicker, although it also was lighter than its predecessor and offered improved internal specs.
