The minute I powered on the Samsung Galaxy Note8 and started using it, I felt the urge to ditch my iPhone 7 Plus and go running back to Android. But am I still feeling that way after using it as my primary device for the past 5 days?  Check out my earlier posts in this… Read More

I’ve been using the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 since last Friday and what started out the type of infatuation that you feel when you meet a new love interest that shares your same interests, has cooled down to the type of friendship that you have with someone you’ve known for years. You really like that… Read More

On Friday I posted my first day impressions of the Samsung Galaxy Note8 and I’m back with a few more thoughts after spending the weekend with this phone. So go check out day 1 and then come back for more.  Check out my other posts in this series: Samsung Galaxy Note8 review (day 1) Samsung… Read More

Yesterday I posted a gadget diary entry where I professed my immediate love (lust?) for the Samsung Galaxy Note8. Today I turned off my iPhone 7 Plus, set up the Note8, and started using it as my primary device. Have my feelings changed already? Let’s find out with my multi-part diary style review.  Check out… Read More

It was just last week that Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 8, but that isn’t stopping them from launching some new products at IFA 2017. But instead of a phone, they have focused on launching several wearables at the show, and these wearables are all focused on fitness. The star of the line up is… Read More

Unless you have been under a rock, you already know about Samsung’s entry into the Smart Assistant category with the odd name Bixby.  If you have been under a rock, welcome back and we’ll wait while you catch up.

Two days ago after Samsung unveiled the new Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones, I wrote that I’d be staying up and pre-ordering one at the crack of dawn the next day. As it turned out, I didn’t pre-order one because I found out that I would not be able to order an unlocked phone until… Read More

I have been using a Nexus 6P as my main phone since the fall of 2015. It’s been a really nice device, but it’s time that I hand it down to Jeanne so she can ditch her older than dirt Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and I can move to something new like the Samsung Galaxy S8!  I… Read More

Hoping to stand out from the pack of Chromebook manufacturers, Samsung released information on two new advanced versions of the usually spartan Android-powered laptops. Called the Chromebook Plus and the Chromebook Pro, both merge popular features most often found in tablets, like touchscreens, styluses, and an app store.  Perhaps chasing after the success of Microsoft’s… Read More

Samsung has sent out invitations for its Mobile World Congress press event, but thanks to the recent Note 7 problems the company will not be unveiling a new Galaxy S series phone as they have in years past. Instead, the event is likely to be centered around a refresh of their flagship tablet, the Galaxy… Read More

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that things haven’t been going so well for Samsung the past week or two. With a recall in effect due to faulty batteries, I’m afraid it’s going to give the Samsung Galaxy Note7 a bad wrap. Dave Rees and I have teamed up again to share… Read More

This morning I received info from my Verizon rep after asking if I needed to return the review unit of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 that I’ve been testing for the last week: This morning, Samsung announced a voluntary recall of the Galaxy Note7 in response to an issue with the device’s battery. Because customer… Read More

Julie and I just finished our Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge review last week. Not only did we each receive loaner units of the S7 Edge smartphone, but the Samsung Gear VR as well. After trying it out, we both agreed that the Gear VR deserved a review in and of itself. Dave: I have been… Read More

The latest Samsung Galaxy smartphones are here! Dave Rees and I have each been lucky enough to score eval units of the S7 Edge and the Gear VR headset (we’ll post a separate review of the VR headset soon) from Verizon Wireless. After a couple weeks with these devices it’s time to let you know… Read More
