T-Mobile Galaxy Note gets FCC approval, to be released on July 11?

by 2 years ago

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…

Rumor: Galaxy Note 2 to be released in October with 5.5-inch display and 2 GHz Exynos 5250 chipset

by 2 years ago

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…

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….

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,…

Samsung Galaxy Note SGH-I717 (AT&T): How to install TWRP 2.1 Touch Recovery

by 2 years ago

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…

by 2 years ago

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…

Galaxy Note is smartphone with best screen-to-body size ratio, S3 follows closely

by 2 years ago

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…
