"The cure for the common phone..."

I was one of the people who blew off the S4 as an unimaginative incremental upgrade that would sell like hotcakes to fanboys. Words I find ironic now holding the S4 in my hand. I think the turning point for me came when I was watching a Netflix movie on my HTC one. It was a dark room and the light from my One was entirely too bright so I tapped the screen and pulled down the notification bar to quickly change the brightness...No brightness adjustment. Just a check-box to activate Power Save... more...

Samsung Galaxy S4 mini Written Review


Samsung's inability to just be happy with one device has led to plenty of iterative handsets in the past, and it doesn't look like we'll be seeing any different routines from the company any time soon. It's led us to devices like the Galaxy S4 Active, the Galaxy S4 Zoom, and the Galaxy S4 mini . Some may see it as a bad move, saturating the market and what not, but Samsung obviously wants to make sure that they've got a device for everyone and anyone. Is the Galaxy S4 Mini the perfect... more...

Ting Samsung Galaxy S4 Review [Sponsored]


It's time for a Ting review!  This Samsung Galaxy S4 is powered by Ting, a new mobile service provider.  On the surface, it has the same 1.9 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU, 5-inch 1080p HD Super AMOLED display, 13-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 2 GB of RAM, 2,600 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz.  When it comes to features and specifications, it's a device you'll want to have in your pocket.  But it's what's under the hood that makes... more...

Samsung Galaxy S 4 Written Review


When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S 4, they took a lot of flak for not really changing much between the new device and its predecessor. Indeed, the Galaxy S 4 does indeed have plenty of design cues from the Galaxy S III, but Samsung would point to the changes that they did include as to why you should be happy with the upgrade. But, even with a larger display, a faster processor, and a bit more RAM, is the Galaxy S 4 a device that you should switch to, especially with the competition as... more...

Samsung Galaxy S 4 Software Review


While the phone may look similar to the Galaxy S III, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 has some new software tricks under its sleeve.  New features like Air View, S Translator, and S Health make this phone the ultimate companion to a busy lifestyle.  Air Gesture is surprisingly easy to use, and makes for a lot of fun when scrolling on a webpage or answering a phone call with a swipe of the hand.  Aaron dives in and takes a look at one of the things that makes the Galaxy S 4 great -... more...

Samsung Galaxy S 4 Video Review Part 2


Samsung's Galaxy S 4 is one of the most anticipated Android devices to land in the PhoneDog West offices.  As the successor to the Galaxy S III line and the the flag-carrier of sorts for Samsung's Galaxy S brand, the exterior of the phone closely resembles its predecessor.  The real benefits are under the hood, in both the hardware specifications and new software enhancements. Samsung Galaxy S 4 specs include: 1.9 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU 5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED... more...
