Are you at your wit’s end waiting for that seemingly never-going-to-happen Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for your Android devices on Telus Mobility? Well, here’s a little ray of sunshine to brighten your days. As reported a while back, Samsung Galaxy S2 X owners have been given their ICS treat. Now Telus has updated its website with a new ICS timeline to let customers know when the latest Android flavor will come to their respective devices.
Starting with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray — although the list says that the carrier is still testing out the software, owners of the phone said that they’re already getting their ICS upgrade ahead of [...]
One of the famous comments made by the late Steve Jobs in a Q&A session when the first iPad was launched was “[…] if you see a stylus, they blew it.” He was not a fan of stylus use on mobile devices including smartphones and tablets, and therefore you don’t see such accessories coming by default with iOS devices, even though they’re available from third parties, and tend to be quite celebrated and sought after for many diverse reasons.
However, that does not mean other mobile device makers can’t come up with some interesting stylus-based functionalities for smartphones and tablets, and the best example for that is Samsung’s [...]
Announced at IFA 2011, the Galaxy Note quickly became one of Samsung’s Android flagship devices, and the company has been selling quite a few units in the recent months.
In case you have recently purchased the device and you’re still discovering its secrets, we’ll show you a few Galaxy Note tips and tricks, which have been conveniently posted on the company’s Facebook page a few months ago. Here’s what you should know about the Galaxy Note’s hidden features:The keyboard can be optimized for one-handed operation S Pen gestures can launch button functions S Memo lite launches in just two taps for instant memo taking With the S Pen you [...]
Much to everyone’s surprise, Samsung’s Galaxy Note “phablet” was a big hit among tech users all over the world, selling an average of a million units per month for the last seven months. However, the Note still has a few aces up its sleeve, one being an expansion in the US, beyond AT&T, the only carrier to be selling the “monster” for now.
T-Mobile has always been the most likely US carrier to “embrace” the Galaxy Note after AT&T and we now have two fresh new leaks confirming the phablet’s imminent release on Magenta. First off, we have an FCC certification for a Samsung SGH-T879, believed to be for a while the codename of the Note on T-Mo.
According to [...]
Although few people were initially bullish about it, due mostly to its humongous size, Samsung’s Galaxy Note “phablet” struck gold and already sold in 7 million units worldwide.
Released back in October 2011 in Europe and at the beginning of 2012 in the US, the Note is clearly worthy of a successor, but up until now, we knew very little about what could the Note 2 bring to the table.
While we still don’t know anything official about the Galaxy Note 2, the guys at UbuntuLife are claiming to have found out a few juicy details about it. First of all, the Note 2 will most likely be sporting an even larger display than the first-edition Note with a higher [...]
Samsung is really enjoying flaunting its sales figures lately, so it should come as no surprise that the latest sales report released by Sammy mentions some new and very impressive numbers.
No, the quarter hasn’t yet finished (there’s a whole month to go), but that’s no reason for Samsung to not brag with probably its most successful devices ever, the original Galaxy S phone, the Galaxy S2, and the Galaxy Note “phablet”.
According to the company’s official statements, combined Galaxy S and S2 sales have topped the 50 million mark worldwide, which is darn impressive, anyway you look at it. The original Galaxy S currently accounts for 24 million unit sales, [...]
After I reviewed the Samsung Galaxy S3, I got a lot of questions that go like this – “Should I buy the S3 or the Note?” Most people who ask this question just want to get the best device. But honestly, I don’t think it’s a matter of device, but a matter of how you are going to use it.
You see, both the S3 and the Note are equally good. Both are multicores. Both come with 1GB RAM and an 8MP camera. Both are now available with Android 4.0. Hence, it can’t be a matter of which device is better, but rather which device would WORK better for you.
Without a doubt, the S3 will beat the Note in every performance benchmark you throw [...]
It seems like almost everyone is using ClockworkMod Recovery to make backups of their currents ROMs and to flash a variety of things that’ll make their Android devices perform better. In fact, when most guides mention “custom recovery,” they almost always mean ClockworkMod Recovery. What’s someone to do when they want to stand out from the crowd?
Whether it’s to be different from all the other Android users out there or it’s because ClockworkMod Recovery isn’t quite cutting it for you, people can be hard pressed to find a better alternative to the well-known custom recovery. But, that doesn’t mean that ClockworkMod [...]
True flashaholics know the button-combo to boot their Android devices into Recovery Mode. If you aren’t quite sure of what that three-combo is, you need more practice. But, regardless of knowing how to boot your device into Recovery Mode, we can’t deny that frequently flashing mods, tweaks and ROMs can affect our physical buttons. It’s time to give the physical keys a rest and to welcome the future in flashing.
Thanks to XDA Developers senior member braway, AT&T Galaxy Note users can enjoy ClockworkMod Touch Recovery. It works exactly like the old-school ClockworkMod Recovery, except you can browse files, make backups, perform wipes, and flash [...]
Not long ago it seemed like a mobile phone’s most important target was to be as slim, light and portable as possible. But recently, tech users have started changing their views on the market. They now look for phones with the largest and brightest screens, first and foremost.
However, a display’s size could be deceiving sometimes, as there are still a multitude of phones featuring large bezels and/or physical buttons and therefore restricting the actual usable space on the screen. That’s why we were relieved to bump into a chart compiled by Reddit user, Thare, who compiled some information on this specific topic. He analyzed the [...]
