Samsung Galaxy E7 review: Easy touch

GSMArena team, 24 April, 2015| comments (55)

In a bid to bring the A series' new-found premium design language to the masses, Samsung's E-lineup has managed to maintain the same looks. Lower-grade hardware and entirely plastic build have helped keep the price down, but if you don't look too hard it's still an upmarket smartphone.

Charge test: Battle of the fast chargers

GSMArena team, 10 April, 2015| comments (128)

Smartphone batteries piggybacked on the growing screen size to go up in capacity to support both the screen and faster chipsets. Slower to deplete, the new batteries also proved slower to charge so manufacturers tackled the issue with new standards.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge review: Double down

GSMArena team, 3 April, 2015| comments (167)

How big of an impact can a small change have? The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge has only the extra screen curves compared to the vanilla Galaxy S6, but these two phones couldn’t feel any more different - a difference that you can readily feel when you...

Samsung Galaxy A7 review: Alpha leader

GSMArena team, 9 March 2015| comments (83)

The original Alpha project wanted no ties with the Galaxy line – which has been all over the place, from entry-level to premium. After a welcome identity boost, the A-series returns home. The Galaxy A7 is at the helm, a slim, light, metal-trimmed phablet to...

Samsung Galaxy A5 and A5 Duos review: Five star

GSMArena team, 30 January 2015| comments (95)

Samsung's newly found love for “premium build” is spilling down the ranks and if the new A-series get half the love and attention the S-line has been getting, it will be a job well done. The Koreans are right to try and stir things up in the midrange...

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime review: Mirror shot

GSMArena team, 12 December 2014| comments (146)

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime has an ambitious name, but behind it is an ordinary midrange phone. It puts functionality ahead of screen fidelity, throwing all the pixels they could afford at the front facing camera instead. As with other Galaxy Grands...

GSMArena team, 13 October 2014| comments (201)

We're looking for the best phone with a sub-5" screen. At a time when the best features seem to only come with the largest display, there's a strange, almost rebellious feel to it.
