Google Nexus 4 vs. Samsung Galaxy S III: Fan favorites

GSMArena team, 21 December 2012

Android devices come from all walks of life, but in each generation there is a "chosen one". In 2012, it's the Nexus 4 and, as an overall package, this is probably the best Google has ever delivered. Yet, by a mean twist of fate, it has the most formidable...

Samsung Galaxy S Duos review: S goes Dual

GSMArena team, 03 November 2012

Dual-SIM users generally fall in one of two categories – those on a tight budget who look to optimize spending by combining carrier plans, and frequent travelers, who don’t want to carry two handsets all the time. Top-tier manufacturers...

Samsung Ativ S review: A fresh start

GSMArena team, 30 October 2012

Their Ativ S was the first Windows Phone 8 flagship announced and, respectful of chronology, the first we're about to properly review. The Nokia Lumia 920, the HTC Windows Phone 8X and the Ativ S are often painted as allies - but that's mostly rhetoric...

Apple iPhone 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S III: All rise

GSMArena team, 25 October 2012

When we review phones we try to put them in context, and tie everything up with a snapshot of the market and the closest alternatives. Now, we usually keep droids and iPhones separate because honestly they just don’t mix. But every now and then...

Samsung Galaxy S III vs. Note II: Sizing up

GSMArena team, 12 October 2012

The Galaxy S III and the Note II are both cut from the same cloth, but one is XL while the other is XXL. What can we say - someone at Samsung must be busy spinning and weaving. Size matters as it always has but this isn’t a choice between slim fit...

Samsung Galaxy S III mini preview: First look

GSMArena team, 11 October 2012

The Samsung Galaxy S III is one beast of a smartphone, but for many it is still too much to handle. A strong point can be made that a large screen is necessary for proper enjoyment of media on the go or great browsing experience, but not everyone is willing to put a with the body that...

Samsung Ativ Tab preview: First look

GSMArena team, 12 September 2012

It may look like Samsung is dipping a toe in unknown waters but its long-time partnership with Microsoft is a wet suit of sorts. The Ativ Tab may be the company's first Windows 8 RT tablet but not its first Windows slate. You may be familiar with the Samsung...

Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100 preview: A closer look

GSMArena team, 10 September 2012

Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean preview: First look

Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean preview: First look

GSMArena team, 07 September 2012

The Galaxy S III didn't stay in the R&D lab long enough to come with Jelly Bean out of box, but once the latest Android version was announced, Samsung was quick to commit to releasing a timely update. And it seems the wait will be shorter than expected with the official update coming in just a few weeks' time...

GSMArena team, 20 August 2012

The Samsung Duos line has been slowly working up the ranks to finally cross paths with the Galaxy S line. It's obviously not the kind of collision to create a big bang but we're still pretty excited about the exchange of DNA. Honestly, if it takes nothing less than a...

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 review: Second time lucky

GSMArena team, 17 August 2012

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a tablet like no other but instead of making a big splash it's busy making up for lost time. With its launch pushed back shortly after the unveiling, Samsung's top-of-the-line tablet returns to a market that isn’t...


Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 preview: Starting over

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 preview: Starting over

GSMArena team, 09 August 2012

Taking a second to think can result in second thoughts. In the Galaxy 10.1 Note's case it resulted in a second pair of CPU cores and double the RAM - a lethal combination, which only a select few of its foes dare stand against. This is in case you are wondering...


Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos review: Pocket rockets

Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos review: Pocket rockets

GSMArena team, 07 August 2012

This sure looks like a pair of ducks but a good player can play it as an ace. And it's got nothing to do with luck. You cannot always hold the best cards but you can try and make the best of the cards you're dealt. And they may as well be SIM cards...

Samsung Galaxy Beam review: Home cinema

GSMArena team, 24 July 2012

The first attempts at a projector phone didn't quite work out for Samsung. For many that would be enough to call it a day, but not the Koreans. You don't become the world's number 1 phone manufacturer by giving up easily, so Samsung chose to take...

Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300 review: Happy meal

GSMArena team, 6 June 2012

Samsung are back to basics and they say there's always room for one more in the low end. Especially one that doesn't take too much space. The Galaxy Pocket makes the Galaxy Mini look like it's on steroids and the Y series like a bunch of semi pros...
