Why the Galaxy S5 Plus is a waste of your time

Last week Samsung unveiled details for a new device, the Galaxy S5 Plus, a new variant of the company's core flagship handset, the normal Galaxy S5.

Samsung issues Android 4.4.4 for Galaxy Note 10.1 T-Mobile

Samsung has been busy with tablets this year, launching a new Nook oriented slate and of course the new Galaxy Tab S range. The large screened Tab S is quality, but for my money the best large tablet Sammy makes is the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, the stylus packing slate that alongside the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet is the best large screen device Android has to offer. Launched earlier in the year, the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 has been...
