Even though it is over a year old, the 10.1 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro is still an impressive tablet. Its hi-res 2560x1600 display paired with a 1.9GHz Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor gives this device more pixels and power than almost any other Android tablet on the market – even those that are much newer.
At launch, the asking price for the device was a cool $500. If you were tempted to buy one then, but decided to hold off then congratulations, your patience has been rewarded. Read More
Samsung has teamed up with Marvel to offer a free limited edition set of 4 Avenger themed Galaxy Note 4 phone cases to anyone purchasing the latest generation Korean phablet. Samsung generously applies a $200 value to the cases, but I think that estimate is about 4-5 times too high. They look like pretty typical snap on plastic cases, but the artwork on the back featuring symbols of Thor, The Hulk, Iron Man, and Captain America does look pretty snazzy and is sure to draw nerd lust from all your friends.

Samsung makes a lot of products, including flash storage cards. The company has just announced new PRO Plus and EVO Plus cards with increased read and write speeds. And by the way, you can't use them in Samsung's new flagship phone.
The Nexus 10 appears to be receiving its Android 5.1.1 update over-the-air. This is mainly a bugfix release, but any update is welcome news, especially on a device that's considered by some to be past its prime.
The update weighs in at a somewhat paltry 13.9 MB and is most likely build LMY47V. We don't have a link to the OTA update ZIP file yet, but once we do, we'll update this post. Read More

The larger of the two is on sale on eBay's daily deals portal today. You can pick up the 16GB Wi-Fi base model for just $279.99, an impressive $220 off of the retail price, and $170 cheaper than Amazon. Read More
It looks like after years and years of lethargic updates, Android manufacturers are finally starting to recognize the value of speedy upgrades (at least for flagship models). Case in point: the Galaxy S6 Edge launched just a few weeks ago with Android 5.0, and at least one version is already getting a 5.1 update. The T-Mobile version, specifically - SamMobile reports that some owners are seeing the update as of today, including one who posted the updated software to YouTube. Read More
Samsung won't sell you an unlocked Galaxy S6 direct in North America, a situation for which you can blame the carriers. So why not do an end-run around Samsung and buy this unlocked Galaxy S6 (in white, black, or gold) on sale through eBay. The G920F has plenty of US LTE bands and the price isn't bad (going for well over $700 on Amazon).
Maybe you don't need the latest and greatest technology when it comes to your third or fourth screen, and if you can save a little money, why not? The LTE-equipped Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is on sale right now for $99, and it's unlocked to work on T-Mobile or AT&T.
