JK Shin, in a press release, said “The Samsung Gear S redefines the idea of the smart wearable and the culture of mobile communication. It will let consumers live a truly connected life anywhere, anytime." 

Oh! yes. He’s absolutely right. The new model is much more advanced than the company’s previous watches that were seen with many and should allow owners to break away from their Smartphones.

Lets hear the noise it makes once comes to the market.

Microsoft Accused Samsung On Violating Patent Agreement

Posted By: Arin Dey - August 05, 2014
This time its opponent is Microsoft, not Apple. And yes once again Samsung is back in court over a patent dispute. Microsoft accused the South Korean Smartphone maker of neglecting to pay Android licensing fees in violation of a patent agreement reached by the two firms in 2011. Under the agreement, Samsung is required to pay a royalty for every Android-powered Smartphone it sells.

Microsoft Accused Samsung On Violating Patent Agreement

Microsoft also declares that Samsung has been in breach of contract for the past 11 months. Microsoft deputy general counsel David Howard wrote in a blog post that “After becoming the leading player in the worldwide Smartphone market, Samsung decided late last year to stop complying with its agreement with Microsoft. In September 2013, after Microsoft announced it was acquiring the Nokia Devices and Services business, Samsung began using the acquisition as an excuse to breach its contract. Curiously, Samsung did not ask the court to decide whether the Nokia acquisition invalidated its contract with Microsoft, likely because it knew its position was meritless. Microsoft and Samsung have a long history of collaboration. Microsoft values and respects our partnership with Samsung and expects it to continue. We are simply asking the Court to settle our disagreement, and we are confident the contract will be enforced.”

Samsung has not commented yet on this matter. Some other brands that make Android devices — including ZTE, LG, HTC, Acer and Barnes & Noble — have also signed agreements with Microsoft to avoid patent lawsuits. Although Google is the creator of the Android platform, Microsoft holds the patents. Microsoft maintains that the codes Google uses for Android and Chrome copy its technology, violating its patents. Google has called these patents “bogus.”

Samsung Introduces Virtual Reality Device

Posted By: Arin Dey - May 26, 2014
Samsung’s entry  into the VR space with a product has been in news since few months. It means the company will be competing against Facebook’s Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus, Sony’s VR headset which are already known to VR space.

Samsung Introduces Virtual Reality Device

Very less info has been unveiled till now. Engadget reported that the product features an OLED screen and will be compatible with different Samsung phones. It is fact that there are not a lot of details available on the product but it seems that this product would definitely be comprises of features.

Samsung site reflects as “Given VR’s reliance on immediacy, a wired setup is a requirement (any lag introduced breaks the immersion, and often makes people sick). It’s also not clear how, or if, Samsung’s VR headset tracks head movement depth-wise. In the case of both Project Morpheus and Oculus Rift, separate cameras face the player and track depth by reading sensors on the respective headsets.”

Samsung uses Android so it is expected that the headset will be compatible with Android games.

Samsung Launches Galaxy Glass In September

Posted By: Arin Dey - January 28, 2014
In year 2013, Google launched it's Glass which was able to get much appreciation and more people are keen about having hands on experience with Google Glass. Samsung revealed this in the last year and has announced plans to unveil its competitor to Google Glass. 


Samsung’s wearable smart device which is named as Galaxy Glass will be on display for consumers at this year’s IFA tradeshow during September 5-10 in Berlin as per reports by The Korea Times .

Galaxy Glass can be used with users’ Smartphones and will have the ability to play music, provide hands-free control of the phone and answer calls through ear pieces built into the frame and some more features which are yet to unveil.

Samsung Electronics is now coordinating with Samsung Display for the design of the glasses as per the report in The Korea Times. 

Samsung official stated that “The smart glass will present our aim to lead the new market with proven capability. Wearable devices can’t generate profits immediately. Steady releases of devices are showing our firm commitment as a leader in new markets.”

Hopefully like other Samsung Galaxy products, this wearable gadget will fulfill Galaxy users expectations.

Apple & Samsung Towards Patent Issue Settlement

Posted By: Poketors - December 31, 2013
Apple & Samsung are going towards to put an end to all the battleship by signing a royalties deal that would be good for both parties, the Korea Fair Trade Commission (FTC) revealed to Korea Times.

“As far as I know, the companies recently resumed working-level discussions toward the signing of a potential deal. They are in the process of narrowing differences over royalty payments.” a Korean FTC official told the Korea Times. 


The lawyers for both companies agreed they would have a proposal for discussion by January. Koh, who said she was disappointed with the suggested timeline, agreed to the date proposed by the attorneys.

Apple is accusing Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus as well as other devices of violating four of its patents in the patent lawsuit set to kick off in March. It will examine software and user interface patent breaches, including the rights to the search technology integrated in the iPhone Siri voice feature. Apple’s success over Samsung may very well be the incentive Samsung needed to attempt talks again.

A California jury awarded Apple $1.05 billion last August after determining Samsung violated six of Apple’s iPhone patents. In March, federal district court judge Lucy Koh ruled that $450.5 million was incorrectly awarded by the jury and ordered the new trial. Samsung was still obligated to pay the remaining $600 million awarded by the jury, however. It appears Samsung has more to gain from a licensing deal than does Apple, an agreement would certainly save both sides astronomical legal fees.

As per Korea Times article, the parties remain “poles apart over the patent values that each has.” Samsung is hoping to ink an all-inclusive “cross-licensing” deal, permitting it to access all Apple’s design-related, some standard-essential and commercial patents. Apple, on the other hand, wants Samsung to pay more than $30 per device for the Smartphone maker’s patent violations — an amount Samsung deems to be “too much,” a Samsung official told the Times.

Lets watch out the space for this battle ground and who gets the lead. Share your comments.

Samsung Introduces Smart Watch Next Month

Posted By: Poketors - August 17, 2013
The most discussed over internet and rumored smart watch from Samsung, Galaxy Gear, is going to be introduced in September and it will be available in stores afterwards. According to the report by Bloomberg, it will be unveiled on September 4, just two days before the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin. 

Galaxy Gear is a wristwatch-like device and has the facility to make phone calls, surf the net and handle e-mails. It will be powered by Google's Android operating system. Samsung, the biggest technology company in Asia, is going to to create a new industry of wearable devices as the market for top-end handsets nears saturation. It will compete with Sony which already introduced its wearable android watch.

The Galaxy Gear which will be released next month will not be having a flexible display, though the company is continuing to work on developing a bendable screen. It will be unveiled the same day as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3, a phablet series gadget.

Apple Watch is also in the pipeline and Apple didn't revealed any date of release the product. Samsung became the world’s largest smartphone maker last year, overtaking Apple. But Apple is continuing its release on iPhone series and will be relesing iPhone5C (a low cost iPhone) and upgrades for iPhone5 (known as iPhone5S) according to rumored reports.
So as of now we have a rough idea that two smartphone giants are working on introducing smart watch. Lets wait for the devices and we will get to know more.

Comparison - Android Galaxy S4 Mini, S4 and S3 Mini

Posted By: Poketors - August 03, 2013
This infographic was composed by AndroidPIT, the price of the Galaxy S4 Mini has been revealed to be around $300 with it currently selling on Amazon for $288.95. So what do we think of the S4 Mini? The battery life is certainly improved over the S3 Mini but still does not reach the full battery life of the S4. That said however, the smaller size of the S4 Mini does have something on the S4 in terms of weight and size. Does it have enough to justify the lack of battery life? We’re talking a difference of 2,600 mAh in the S4 versus 1,900 mAh in the S4 Mini.

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

Posted By: Poketors - March 17, 2013
The biggest smart phone battle is now on the air. The recently crowned HTC One must prove itself against the mighty Samsung Galaxy S4. Will the HTC stay at the top or will its fall from its top position? Let's find out.
Overall View : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

In the one corner, you have the HTC One's rather wonderful aluminium body, which feels reassuringly strong, smooth and svelte thanks to relatively slim proportions. Somehow it looks a little industrial and retro from the front, which we love. You will be proud to show this device to friends.

In the Samsung corner, you get a the polycarbonate plastic the Galaxy S3 was encased in. Regardless of the technical name, it feels cheaper in the hand but it does at least mean the weight of the device is kept relatively low, which is probably a good idea when the display is as large as it is. In the S4's defence, it does do a splendid job of housing a gigantic display so you won't need to stitch on a clown pocket.

We've said it before and we'll harp on about it again: premium phones should feel premium in the hand, and the Galaxy S4 falls short in this area. A win for the HTC One here.

Hardware & Performance : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

If looks are largely irrelevant, the Samsung is going to impress you. You don't get a dual-core processor, or even a quad one ─ try an eight-core Samsung Exynos 1.6GHz monster comprised two quad core processors, 2GB of RAM and a powerVR SGX 544 graphics chip that will make Angry Birds and other mobile games run incredibly smoothly. Suffice to say, Samsung has once again set the pace for just how much power you can get into a phone, although the jury's out on whether all that power is noticeable or even needed.

Unfortunately for the HTC One, it was never going to win with four less cores but it's still a powerhouse in its own right. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core clocked at 1.7GHz and with an Adreno 320 GPU behind it, as well as 2GB of RAM, makes the One almost unrivalled when it comes to performance.

Ultimately, if anything can dethrone the HTC One for sheer grunt you will never use, it's the Samsung Galaxy S4 although the difference is unlikely to be great. The fact is, both phones are quicker than just about any other Android phone the world has ever seen, which is impressive. A win on paper for the Sammy here.

Screen : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

Another close call, both the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One boast full HD screens. Yes that's 1,920x1080 pixels, just like the full HD goggle box in your living room. In this case, it depends on what you want. For pixel density and therefore clarity, the HTC One boasts a score of 468ppi whereas the Samsung can 'only' manage 441ppi. Both scores far surpass the iPhone 5's Retina Display.

In terms of technology, the Galaxy S4 uses Green AMOLED technology to lower power consumption, which is a good thing when the size of the display is a whopping 5in. We're talking nearly Samsung Galaxy Note territory. The HTC One is a slightly more manageable 4.7in and uses SLCD technology.

Technically this fight is a draw because, while the HTC One is more detailed and more pocketable, you may crave the impact of a bigger screen. Either way, the detail will be superb, the brightness more than adequate and the colours vivid. It just depends on whether you like the HTC One's more subtle colours and more palatable display or the bolder colours and bigger screen of the S4.

Battery Life : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

Battery life is always a tough call because no two people will have the same user habits. Regardless of how big a battery is, spend loads of time on YouTube streaming HD videos and you will soon know about it.
Let's look at the numbers, though. For the HTC One, you get a 2,300mAh battery that can't be removed. For the Samsung, it's 2,600mAh and can be removed. Expect about a day of solid use before plugging either device into the mains while you sleep.

Camera : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

Megapixels mean little if a camera doesn't know how to use them. Fortunately for you, the HTC One's UltraPixel system provides pretty good low-light performance, accurate colours and the capability to capture fast-moving objects and scenes. It can also record impressive 1080p video footage. As phone cameras go, the HTC One is very well blessed and we doubt anyone would be disappointed with the results.

Samsung has opted to keep things simple with a bog-standard MP count of 13. Not the most out there but definitely competitive with the Nokia PureViews and UltraPixel variants of the world. Detail is impressive, colours are spot on and, as with most recent flagship phones, the low-light capability is vastly improved versus the Galaxy S3. In terms of features, the S4 can record both cameras at once using Dual Shot, merge photos taken from the two cameras at the same time and can even record up to nine seconds of sound while capturing a photo.

Knowing the stakes are high, the winner here is an especially tough choice. We're going to call the HTC One the victor here based on the quality of the shots from both devices we've seen so far and mainly because we can't see Dual Shot being used all that much.

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

Some Extended Features : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

In terms of extended features, the HTC One comes with an impressive 32GB of storage, HTC's greatly improved Sense 5 user-interface and a home screen that is basically Flipboard. It looks a little like it came from Windows Phone, thanks to sizable tiles packed with images and information, and therefore all the better for it. Simplicity is sometimes what Android needs and the One really tries to plonk the essentials in an easy to find location. Even so, you can still customise to your heart's content if you so desire.

Samsung has decided to build on the S3's out-of-the-box functionality. Smart Stay – now known as Smart Pause – eyeball tracking is back, along with proximity feature Air View. Basically, it's the equivalent of hovering your mouse pointer over something. By keeping your finger near but not touching the screen, you can manipulate certain functionality such as hovering over Google images so you see a larger version without actually clicking it. The same can be applied to swiping, too. Rounding off is the S Health app, which lets you keep tabs on your exercise routine and health using the S4's array of new sensors – including temperature and moisture tracking.

We questioned the need for those extras on the Galaxy S3 and we are still unsure whether the S4 benefits from having them, although Air View could prove useful in a number of situations. Therefore the victory goes to the Galaxy S4 – unless you crave a focus on simplicity, in which case, the HTC One is for you.

Suggestion To Buy : Samsung Galaxy S4 vs HTC One

If we counted up the wins, the score resides at a nail-biting 3-3 draw. In some ways that's a good thing because it highlights the brilliance of the Galaxy S4 and how much HTC has learned to allow it to release what quickly became our current smartphone of choice.

The S4 can't hold a candle to the stylish and Flipboard-enthused HTC One. It's fresh, well designed and it could take a knock or two before warranting an expensive repair bill. But it's a little less powerful, if that matters to you, and the screen is detailed but a tad smaller. If you prefer your Android experience a little more garish and vanilla, the S4 is for you ─ if you can put up with another bout of plastic.

Both phones are worthy of your money, but, assuming our review goes the way we think it will, the HTC One will hold onto its crown until the iPhone 5S.
