Samsung on Course for 50 Million Galaxy S6 Sales Says Leading Research Firm

Are the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge selling well? Yes, but they may not be selling as well as Samsung had hoped if you believe some reports. The company has denied that its new flagship is underperforming and said that it still expect to sell over 50 million units before the end of this year. While many analysts disagree, Counterpoint Research, a leading and respected market watcher, has said that Samsung is on course to sell...

It is well-known that Samsung is building replacements for its Galaxy Tab S range, and thanks to TENAA in China we can have our first look at the smaller Galaxy Tab S2 8.0.

How Big Should a Smart Phone Be?

Smart phones have a come a long way since I started covering them professionally back in 2009 they have a ton of new features, GPS, 41mp cameras, fingerprint sensors, heart-rate monitors, etc...  They have also in increased in size perhaps a little too much even.   When the HTC Titan came out it was well...HUGE at the time.  I remember opening the box to it's massive 4.7 inch screen.  That's right massive!  People made fun of me...

Samsung has done a good job updating a lot of its devices to Android 5.0 Lollipop, but the company has a huge array of smartphones, many of which are still lacking Lollipop. For example the Galaxy S5 Mini has yet to get an upgrade to Android 5.0 and is still knocking around on good old Android 4.4.2 KitKat. That is about to change though as Samsung Denmark confirmed the software is imminent on the device. It was already known that the...

Samsung Galaxy S6 Sells 10 Million Units Slower than Predecessors

Samsung's Galaxy S6 could well be the best smartphone available right now (sure, it’s debateable) and has given the Korean giant a flagship that ticks all the right boxes. Indeed, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have been pointing to a sales increase for Samsung after a disappointing 2014, but the reality seems different. That’s because the Galaxy S6 has passed 10 million unit sales, but interestingly the devices have reached the...
