Choose one word to describe the Samsung Galaxy S6. Gorgeous. Powerful. Special. Different. Thank you. That will do. Galaxy S5 has only one of these under its belt and hint... it starts with a P.

Samsung Galaxy A7 review: Alpha leader

Samsung Galaxy A7 review: Alpha leader

GSMArena team, 9 March 2015

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...

GSMArena team, 30 January 2015

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

Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime review: Mirror shot

GSMArena team, 12 December 2014

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

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.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha preview: First look

Samsung Galaxy Alpha preview: First look

GSMArena team, 13 August 2014

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha is a surprising change in the Samsung product strategy. It certainly has many of the Galaxy S5 key selling features, while staking on more premium material such as aluminum. But it’s not another flagship, no, it’s rather an offshoot of the Galaxy family tree – something that the Galaxy S5 mini could have been but is not. An unusual bird, indeed.
