Samsung’s VR bedtime stories are cute, but really?

vr_story Samsung worries about your child. Are they sleeping well? Do they miss you when you’re away on business? Can they put on a VR headset without their parents’ help? That last one is pretty important. Because Samsung wants your kids to experience the joy of VR just before bed instead of a regular bedtime story even though why would you do that. Read More

New report outlines one way the iPhone 7 might not match the Galaxy S7

iPhone 7 Galaxy S7 Storage
One key component of the Galaxy S7 is Samsung’s ultra-fast universal flash storage (UFS) that’s able to offer better speeds than typical memory solutions used in smartphones and other computers. Based on Samsung's advanced V-NAND flash memory chips, the UFS storage would significantly improve the iPhone's performance. A new report says that although Samsung and Apple have inked a storage deal for the first time since the iPhone 5, Samsung's UFS might not make it into the iPhone until next year.

The new HTC 10 is here, but the Galaxy S7 might still be the world’s best Android phone

Galaxy S7 Best Smartphone
Released a few weeks ago, the Galaxy S7 was lauded in reviews, which concluded the phone is Samsung's best Android handset to date, and one of the best smartphones of the year – if not the best. We noted in our newly published review that the HTC 10 certainly gives Samsung's flagships a run for their money, but a new report now says that the Galaxy S7 has already been named the best phone in various European markets, including the U.K., France, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands.

iPhone and Samsung Gear S2 support draws closer as iOS app leaks

We’ve previously reported that the Samsung Gear S2 would be gaining support for iOS later this year, and it looks like that support is coming soon. A member of the XDA-Developers forums has shared a link to a potentially early version of a Samsung Gear S2 specific app that would allows iOS to pair with the device. While the app appears to be in the early stages (indications of the app’s creation dates back to March 2nd), it could potentially show us what the final app will look like.

Based on discussions in the forum, users looking to attempt the pair the devices may have to restore their S2 to factory settings before having it pair with the leaked iOS application. This may require having another Android device on hand, but the results seem to be mixed at this point. Some forum members are also indicating that they are able to receive notifications pushed from iOS, but have no way to reply.

The Samsung Gear S2 Lite iOS application can be installed through iTunes, or by side-loading through Xcode. Before launching the application, a Samsung specific enterprise profile must be accepted through settings. We cannot stress this enough, installing applications from unverified sources is not guaranteed safe. Proceed with extreme caution.

The Samsung Gear S2 is available refurbished from Best Buy for $159.99, or new from Amazon at $249.

Samsung is fixing the biggest problem with the Galaxy S7 edge

Galaxy S7 Software Update
The new Galaxy S7 edge is my favorite Android phone ever. In fact, it's my favorite phone period in terms of hardware. In just a few short years, Samsung has gone from selling cheap-feeling plasticky flagship smartphones to building smartphone hardware that is absolutely best in class. Combine that with a gorgeous 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display in a shockingly compact form factor for a phablet, and you've got a recipe for success. No phone is perfect though, and the S7 edge definitely ships along with some annoying issues. Thankfully though, a new update will fix the biggest complaint many users have with their new Samsung phablets.
