Samsung “hiring like crazy” to be innovative

After a poor (by the company's standards) third quarter and IDC confirmation that sales and market share has declined, Samsung is in its stickiest situation for some time. The company has yielded market share to a slew of rivals from China and beyond, while sales of its current flagship, the Galaxy S5, have failed to inspire. To combat this the Korean giant is looking to bring in new talent in an attempt to hit gold and get another...

The Galaxy Alpha will not be Samsung’s iPhone 6 killer

Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Alpha is shaping up to be a strange smartphone after it was all but confirmed that the handset would be packing a 720p screen today.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 to have a flexible screen?

Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 4 is one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year and will likely be another huge hit for the Korean company. The Note series created the Phablet trend and has continued to build upon it, and the series is widely considered the best large screen option, especially with the fantastic S Pen in tow. Even if Samsung only incrementally updates the Galaxy Note 3 it is likely to have a hit on its hands,...

Samsung is not to blame for Galaxy Tab S overheating

Despite winning rave reviews as a true competitor to Apple's iPad, Samsung's (admittedly fantastic) Galaxy Tab S range of slates have had some early problems. A growing number of consumers who have bought a Galaxy Tab S are reporting that the device excessively overheats and the result is a back cover that distorts and deforms. Of course, the rear cover of the Tab S is a big talking point aside from it starting to melt. It features...
