Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III vs. HTC One X: Alien vs. Predator

GSMArena team, 11 May 2012

There's no battle to end all battles in this industry but there's no point either trying to reason with two deadly droids, armed with the latest technology. We have two of the season's hottest smartphones in combat mode and Android supremacy is...

Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III preview: Second encounter

GSMArena team, 8 May 2012

There's no need for us to tell you the importance of the Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III for both its own manufacturer and the Android world in general - our daily interest stats speak for themselves. Its predecessor was really something special...

Samsung I9300 Galaxy S III hands-on: First look

GSMArena team, 3 May 2012

Samsung very recently climbed to top as the phone vendor with most units shipped, but more importantly, it also became the maker with most smartphones shipped. The company is a big player in the Android world, so with the announcement of its...

Samsung Galaxy Y Duos S6102 review : Double smart

GSMArena team, 28 April 2012

It got around the block quickly enough that entry-level Androids are big money earners. Not that Samsung needed the heads-up. They've had a foot in that door for as long as we can remember. As of late, their Galaxy Y series...


Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 I8160 preview: First look

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 I8160 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 24 April 2012

The original Samsung Galaxy Ace is now an entry level device at best, pushed down the ranks by the weight of two sequels. The Galaxy Ace 2 is next in line and we're talking a proper mid-range device. This dual-core smartphone...


Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 review: Make it two

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 review: Make it two

GSMArena team, 19 April 2012

The question this second-generation Samsung tablet is trying to answer is not "How much better can it get?" The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 stops at how much. It feels safe pretending there's no such thing as a third-generation iPad...

Samsung I8530 Galaxy Beam preview: First look

GSMArena team, 9 April 2012

You don't see many of those around. Perhaps you're looking in the wrong place. As always, we're glad to be of service but, no, the Samsung i7410 didn’t ring any bells. It was the good old Phone Finder...

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 6 April 2012

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 dispels any doubt about the return of the stylus - the S Pen transforms the tablet into something that will appeal to artist and business types alike. It's a very different experience, one that other tablets cannot match...


Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus review: Aces wild

Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus review: Aces wild

GSMArena team, 4 April 2012

The original Galaxy Ace S5830 did well for Samsung in the midrange. And, as we all know by this point, midrange droids are a force to be reckoned with, especially among users looking to move up from dumbphones without breaking the bank. Now, exactly a year later, the S7500 Ace Plus enters...


Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 review: Different magic

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 review: Different magic

GSMArena team, 2 April 2012

Samsung's impressive tablet lineup is already in its second generation, but the one that stands out is surprisingly at the lower end of both the size range and the age bracket. The ultra-thin and incredibly light Super-AMOLED-packing Galaxy Tab 7.7 may...


Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G review: The middle man

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G review: The middle man

GSMArena team, 27 March 2012

The Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, as the far too long name suggests, is yet another incarnation of the original Galaxy S. Sure, it has grown an extra CPU core, to go with its 42Mbps network connectivity, but at the end of the day, the newcomer packs a lot ...


Samsung Galaxy S II ICS review: Sugar coated

Samsung Galaxy S II ICS review: Sugar coated

GSMArena team, 16 March 2012

Sony Xperia S vs. Samsung Galaxy S II: S-hootout

GSMArena team, 09 March 2012

Released nearly a year apart, the Sony Xperia S and the Samsung Galaxy S II are not that different - both are flagship droids with dual-core CPUs and 4.3" screens. But the newer Xperia S brings some fine upgrades, like a 12MP camera and a 720p screen.

Samsung Rugby Smart review: Tough INC.

GSMArena team, 08 March 2012

Samsung I9070 Galaxy S Advance review: While-u-wait

GSMArena team, 07 March 2012

Here's one to keep you busy while you wait for the Galaxy S III. One that may help the original Galaxy S finally take the hint and hang up its boots. The Galaxy S Advance is the next in a string of sequels looking to get the best afterburn...


Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 preview: First look

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 preview: First look

GSMArena team, 05 March 2012

The 10-inch form factor is the corridors of power in tablet terms, but the ones that won't turn your wallet inside out are hard to come by. In the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Samsung seem to have a reasonably-spec'd Android tablet, which might be the answer to that...


Samsung Wave Y review: Young blood

Samsung Wave Y review: Young blood

GSMArena team, 05 March 2012

The Wave Y budget smartphone from Samsung features the ever familiar Andr…wait- what you mean, it's not Android? But it looks exactly like Android! Well, it seems things just took a more interesting turn. The Samsung Wave Y runs the latest Bada OS.

MWC 2012: Samsung overview

GSMArena team, 27 February 2012

While Samsung did not have the kind of massive presence of past years, they still showed off two new 10.1" tablets. The Galaxy Note 10.1 brings the S-Pen to the large screen, while the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is happy with its sequel role. The projector-enabled Samsung Galaxy Beam was also revealed.

Samsung Galaxy Note I717 review: Pushing the envelope

GSMArena team, 19 February 2012

Galaxy W vs. Xperia Neo V: Vice Wersa

GSMArena team, 14 February 2012

Single-core droids will only be getting cheaper and there's plenty to choose from. But if you want to get the best out of a tight budget, making the right choice can prove to be a challenge. We're looking at two phones that launched at the same time and have...

Nokia Lumia 710 vs. Samsung I8350 Omnia W: Battle of the affordable Windows Phones

GSMArena team, 10 February 2012

This sure looks like a non-starter. Comparing Windows Phone handsets is about as constructive as deciding which is right and which is left in a pair of socks. HTC and, to a lesser extent, Samsung have...


Samsung Galaxy R vs. LG Optimus 2X: Affordable dual-cores

Samsung Galaxy R vs. LG Optimus 2X: Affordable dual-cores

GSMArena team, 1 February 2012

Yep, you read that right. Affordable and dual core wouldn't normally belong in the same sentence. In 2011. And you don't need to press fast forward. Just sit back and enjoy. There's a lot stewing in the industry's pot and we think the place smells of quad core already...

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus review: A game of sequels

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus review: A game of sequels

GSMArena team, 17 January 2012

Apple gave the world the tablet. Samsung gave the world a choice. It’s not as simple of course as narrowing it down to an iPad vs. a Galaxy Tab. Nearly every phone maker out there has a tablet to offer. But the fact is that whatever size you want and whatever screen you like - Samsung most likely have it...


Now in HD: Galaxy Nexus vs. Optimus LTE screen shootout

Now in HD: Galaxy Nexus vs. Optimus LTE screen shootout

GSMArena team, 13 January 2012

Done pushing megapixels and well into pixel popping, still the good old numbers game. HD screens are the next big thing and they'd better enjoy it while it lasts, with quad-core around the corner and all. Anyway, is it just another number to brag...

Samsung Galaxy Nexus review: Opening new doors

GSMArena team, 30 December 2011
