US Cellular Version Of The Galaxy Tab S 10.5 Gets Its Lollipop (5.0.2) OTA Update

Samsung's latest and most advanced tablet series is the Galaxy Tab S. That's kind of amazing when you consider the company's previous rate of releasing new tablets, and that the Tab S 8.4 and Tab S 10.5 were released almost a year ago. But I suppose it's nice if you happen to have one, so Samsung is more motivated to release faster updates. Today the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 on US Cellular gets its Android 5.0 update.

[Deal Alert] Unlocked Refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Now Only $400 On eBay

The Galaxy Note 4 was a beast of a device at launch, and as a direct result, it came with a beast of a price tag (the AT&T model in particular still goes for $850). It's the kind of phone that carriers offer for $300 on contact, which is enough money to outright own a decent piece of hardware these days.

Now that the Galaxy S6 exists and we're nearly a year out since the Note 4's launch, it's easier to get the 5.7-inch device at a more reasonable price.

"OK Google" From Any Screen On The Galaxy S6 And S6 Edge Appears To Be Returning, Can Possibly Be Forced Back On

A couple weeks back, we reported on a widespread problem with OK Google "From any screen" (AKA "OK Google Everywhere") on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Namely, it was gone. While the hotword still worked from the Google Now Launcher and other third party launchers with such functionality hacked in, most S6 and S6 Edge owners were unable to use the "from any screen" functionality because the option simply disappeared.

Samsung Lays Out Plans For Slimmer Batteries And Camera Sensors, Faster Charging In Coming Product Generations

In a public presentation, Samsung has discussed some of the technical-oriented plans they have for the next few years. These can be summed up as all in the service of reducing the size of components and making them more efficient. Concrete goals include making batteries smaller but also more energy-dense, reducing charge time, and slimming down camera sensors.

According to their talk, their batteries now have a density of 700Wh/l (Watt-hour per liter). They're hoping to ramp that up to 750 by the end of next year and 780 by 2017, with the plan to begin shipping new products with these advances by then as well.

Samsung Announces The Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man Edition For South Korea, China, And Hong Kong

What kind of cell phone would Iron Man use? Well, depending on which movie or commercial you watch, it's either an LG (the original movie), an HTC (based on Robert Downey Jr.'s nonsensical brand representation), or an impossible transparent super-sci-fi gadget phone (Iron Man 2). But the ultimate fan of Marvel's movies would definitely use the Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man Edition, with a unique gold-on-red color scheme to match the suit. And just in case people don't get the hint, it's also got a huge Iron Man helmet decal on the back and a custom Avengers software theme.

Samsung has made the Iron Man Edition official, with a release in the company's home turf of South Korea planned for tomorrow, May 27th, and China and Hong Kong releases next month.
