Since Android's rise to the top of the mobile landscape, Samsung has been the clear market leader, at least in terms of sales. But the thrones of the mighty are shaking, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal. The WSJ cites anonymous sources, presumably within Samsung itself, that say the Galaxy S5's international sales have fallen 40% below the company's expectations. approximately 12 million phones were sold in the first three months after release, compared to 16 million for the Galaxy S4 last year.
There may not always be a power outlet nearby when you need one, so perhaps a giant external battery is something you should consider. In fact, there's a particularly massive battery from EC Technology on sale through Amazon right now. 22,400mAh of power for just $34.99.
This device is usually priced between $50 and $55, so this is a solid deal. It has two USB ports (up to 2.1A) and an LED flashlight for good measure.
A frightful evening to you all, ghouls and goblins. It's Halloween, and even if you don't celebrate, there are plenty of sales in the Play Store for you to take advantage of. Several prolific developers have put almost their entire catalogs on sale, so get your bag ready so we can pile in those treats.
There aren't a lot of options for big tablets with styluses, so the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is kind of the automatic winner. The only problem is it's so darn expensive. Well, unless you're down with a refurb. You can pick one of those up on eBay right now for the reasonable price of $389.99.
The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 has a 2560x1600 LCD screen with support for the pressure-sensitive S Pen.
