The Galaxy S6 Edge is twin brother of the regular S6 with a twist, that it was two curved edges on the screen. CPU, camera, software, and pretty much everything else but the screen is identical on the S6 Edge compared to the S6. The S6 Edge retails $100 more than the regular S6 and really, is it worth the extra $100?
With the first Galaxy series launched without a removable battery, the Galaxy S6 poses problems for many who may want to not hug a wall all day long. And also ironically, not hugging a wall was one of Samsung’s famous marketing tactics.
Well, the Galaxy S6 comes with a measly 2550mAh battery, at least it should charge fast right? The fast charging adapter(yes, it comes with the phone) provides the Galaxy S6 with 9 volts of 1.46amps of juice when you need to re-charge your phone fast.
The word is out! The Galaxy S6 is officially the king of speed in smartphone performance. With its Exynos 7420 Octa-core processor, the Galaxy S6 blasts through benchmarks like nothing we have seen ever before.
Couple months back, I thought my Nexus 9 was really, really fast with Antutu scores of near 58,000. Well, the verdict is in folks, the Galaxy S6 scored an average of 69,000 on Antutu. FYI, we used Android 5.0.2 for both the S6 and Note 4 to make it a fair contest.
I had a helluva time trying to get my hands on the latest Samsung Galaxy S6, but thanks to my luck and T-Mobile, my T-Mobile Galaxy S6 order arrived today. This is the latest flagship device from Samsung with 64-bit Octa-core processor, touted as the fastest smartphone in the world (as of this writing).
Are you just tired of waiting for OnePlus One to release Lollipop update? Perhaps by the time you get it, you may have a new phone already.
But no worries, if you are rooted like myself, you can enjoy all the goodness of open-source and custom ROMs and enjoy CM12.1 with Android 5.1 today. Luckily, OnePlus One is one of the earliest Android devices to receive CM12.1 ROM.
The other day my Comcast Business internet went down again, that’s the 5th time it happened and my download speeds crawled to around 1Mbps download for couple days (while I paid around $200/month for 100Mbps). On those days, I usually tether my main office computer to my Verizon Note 3, which I have an unlimited grandfathered plan.
For those of you with latest Android 5.0, 5.0.1, 5.0.2, or 5.1 Lollipop OS, here’s how to install Adobe Flash Player to view legacy Flash Player-enabled websites. You will need to use a Flash Player-compatible browser like Dolphin browser (which I highly recommend btw). This will allow you to enjoy all your flash content even on Lollipop. And yes, if you have a newer device like the Nexus 6 or Note 4 with latest Qualcomm 805 processor or higher, flash runs really fast.
For those of you who commute to work daily or perhaps you drive often in general, you may want to consider setting up a Qi wireless charging car mount so you can have your Android smartphone charging wirelessly as soon as you step into your car.
If you own an Android smartphone that’s Qi compatible such as Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 or you have a phone with a Qi-enabled case (like Note 4 S-View case), you can greatly benefit from having wireless charging in your car. Also, for most Galaxy and many other smartphones, you can get a Qi-wireless module that piggybacks onto back of your battery (See our article on wireless charging receiver).
Couple days back, YouTube announced its support for 360 degree videos, which means YouTube users can now upload 360 degree videos and viewers can view the video on their Android device in full 360 degrees. Well, like I promised, I ordered the Kodak SP 360 camera, which is one of the two camera available today for consumers to make their own 360 degree videos.
