Samsung Galaxy S6 Review: Samsung's Most Unexpected And Best Phone To Date

Samsung must have known it had a problem early in the Galaxy S5's run when most of the reviews called the phone "boring" or "predictable," while also conceding that it was a good device. A good, predictable phone isn't going to sell like gangbusters, and indeed, the Galaxy S5 fell short of expectations. Over the next few months, we saw devices like the Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4 that played around with more premium materials and different designs, but the Galaxy S6 is the culmination of Samsung's plans to rehab its reputation.

The Galaxy S6 is still distinctly Samsung with the oblong home button, big camera sensor, and industry-leading AMOLED panel, but it almost feels like it was made by a version of Samsung from some bizarre parallel reality where plastic doesn't exist.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 16GB LTE Verizon And AT&T Model On Sale At Best Buy For $279.99 - A Price Hotter Than A Snapdragon 810

Ok, I am going to keep this brief because I don't expect this deal to last long. In preparation for the imminent release of new Samsung tablets, Best Buy has the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4" 16GB LTE tablet at closeout prices. They are available with either AT&T or Verizon antennas for just $279.99. That's a staggering 220 bucks off retail and 20 dollars less than the Wi-Fi only model on Amazon (which was already a good deal).

Screenshot 2015-04-09 at 2.13.28 PM - EditedEven though it launched in June of 2014, the Tab S is still a formidable device with plenty of power and, in my opinion, the best screen on any Android tablet.

New Samsung Video Shows You How The Galaxy S6 Edge Is Carefully, Expertly, And Oh So Slowly Put Together

In our nerdy universe, phone unboxings are the equivalent of gadget porn — shiny, exciting, and they involve things being turned on. (Sorry.) But Samsung may have inadvertently stumbled on a more titillating category in its latest video: inboxings. Think of them as the reverse process of unboxings and teardowns: you start with the various electronic pieces and put them together to build the phone, then you place the accessories and device inside the box for the final shipping-ready product.

In Samsung's S6 Edge iteration, melodic piano notes accompany the procedure, slow-motions and close-ups focus on the important components, tweezers and screwdrivers are delicately pinched and rotated, and the actor stops to gaze at the phone several times to appreciate his work.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Temporarily Knocks $100 Off Of The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 And 10.5, Amazon Beats Them By Up To $20

Samsung's top-of-the-line Galaxy Tab S series is legitimately awesome, but the 8.4 and 10.5-inch models are also considerably more expensive than their competitors. For a short time Samsung is discounting both of them by $100 on its official online store. The base 16GB Wi-Fi models of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 are now $299.99 and 399.99, respectively, a sale price that's reportedly effective through Saturday, April 11th. Both tablets are available in white and bronze colors with free shipping.

If that's not cheap enough for you (and it's still not all that cheap), Amazon has the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 for $20 less.

Galaxy S5 On US Cellular Receives OTA Update With Android Lollipop

Carriers started sending over-the-air updates delivering Android 5.0 to the Galaxy S5 back in February, but there are still users who have yet to do the jump. Some of them have been waiting around on US Cellular, who has only just now announced that it's bringing Lollipop to Samsung's 2014 flagship.

By now, you know what to expect. We have covered Lollipop's changes in great detail. We've even had half a year to get an idea of how Samsung has flavored Lollipop to taste well with TouchWiz.

So enjoy the update, which is going out as software version G900R4VXU1BOC1.

Samsung Denies Report That It Paid People To Attend A Chinese PR Event, Original Story Retracted

Last week a report surfaced alleging that Samsung recruited and paid "temporary employees" to attend its Galaxy S6 launch event in China. The Paper, based in Shanghai, claimed that the company hired 400 to 500 people for 30 to 50 yuan (about $8) each to spend time at the launch event on Friday. If true, then paid attendees would have amounted to approximately half of the people there. Samsung has categorically denied the report on the Samsung Tomorrow blog and claimed that the original newspaper has retracted the story.

The news article contended that part-timers, acting as “fanboys”of Samsung smartphones, participated in the launching event.
