Computex 2012: Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Asus Padfone vs Samsung Galaxy S2 (video)

by: Bams SadewoJune 9, 2012

Having trouble choosing between 2012’s Phone of the Year candidate Samsung Galaxy S3 and the shape-shifting Asus Padfone?

Check out the quick comparison video below to see how the two smartphones stack up against each other. To make things even more interesting, we’ve also thrown last year’s best-selling Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy S2 into the mix, so make that a three-way visual comparison.

The red hot Samsung Galaxy S3 is the more attractive offering compared to the two. But for those who like the idea of a device within a device (within a device), the Asus Padfone should make for one worthy purchase. The complete package of the Padfone will cost you [...]

Samsung Galaxy S3 topples iPhone 4S on Mobile Tracker Charts

by: Arnold ZafraJune 5, 2012

After using the Samsung Galaxy S3 as my primary mobile device for a couple of days now, I’m quite confident to say that Apple has all the reason to be wary of Sammy’s latest flagship device. The Galaxy S3 definitely has what it takes to pull the iPhone 4S down any given mobile tracking charts. In both design and performance the Galaxy S3  can easily match up what the iPhone 4S has been offering. And we all better accept that, regardless of whether we are sitting on the Android or iOS bench.

As an example of how hot of a mobile device the Samsung Galaxy S3 is right now, mobile site uSwitch.com has announced that the device has dislodged the iPhone 4S from [...]

Finally, T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S2 will receive ICS on June 11

by: Bams SadewoJune 4, 2012

It’s been a long time a-coming, but owners of the Samsung Galaxy S2 on T-Mobile can stop daydreaming about Ice Cream Sandwich and start preparing for a scoop. T-Mobile has announced on their Twitter account that the Android 4.0 upgrade for the device is “coming via Samsung Kies” starting June 6. Sadly, the carrier hasn’t mentioned anything else, except that more details will be posted soon. Let’s just hope and assume that we’ll hear more from them this week.

Back in April, Samsung released a list of all its devices in the US that will be getting ICS – a list that oddly excludes T-Mobile devices. “We are in close communication with T-Mobile to ensure that eligible [...]

T-Mobile Galaxy S3 press photo leaked, home button still in the picture

by: Chris SmithJune 2, 2012

While the Samsung Galaxy S3 is already available in various international markets, US Android fans interested in purchasing the company’s 2012 flagship smartphone will have to wait at least a few more weeks to get it, if recent rumors are correct.

The phone is expected to land in U.S. stores on June 20, at which point you’ll be able to get your Galaxy S3 flavor from one of the four major mobile operators – Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile are already confirmed to carry the Galaxy S3 – or from one of the regional carriers that will surely pick up the phone.

Meanwhile, the first press photo of a U.S. Galaxy S3 version has been [...]

Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100: Installing the Galaxy S3 TouchWiz UX Launcher with either 4×5 or 5×5 App Drawer grid layout

by: Paul NuñalJune 1, 2012

Samsung’s TouchWiz UI has been iconic to the company’s success in many of its mobile phones. Fans of the famed launcher will have more reasons to celebrate as the TouchWiz UX launcher from the Galaxy S3 has now been ported to run on the Galaxy S2, thanks to XDA Developers member Smando.

The new TouchWiz UX launcher that was first seen on the Galaxy S3 sports numerous features such as sorting apps alphabetically in a grid, choosing a default homescreen, S Voice communication, the ability to watch a video picture-in-picture, and many other features. Not only that, the latest TouchWiz UX launcher will work on Samsung official ROMs and on custom ROMs like AOSP, AOKP, and [...]

Sammy just keeps on breaking records: Galaxy S and S2 top 50 million sales, Galaxy Note hits 7m

by: AdrianJune 1, 2012

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, [...]

Android 4.0 update for the Samsung Galaxy S2 is (finally!) available in India

by: Ankit BanerjeeMay 30, 2012

There has been a lot of good news for Android and Samsung fans in India in the last week. First, the Galaxy Note got the upgrade to Android 4.0, available OTA or via Kies. There was later an announcement that all new Samsung Galaxy S2s that would be sold in India would ship with ICS out of the box. Leaving the best for last, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is already up for pre-order and will likely be available in the next two weeks.

But, all the good news did nothing to stem the increasing disappointment and anger felt by current Samsung Galaxy S2 owners, who have been eagerly awaiting the update to Google’s “latest and greatest” iteration of the Android OS. [...]

Galaxy S3 TouchWiz launcher ported to the Galaxy S2, working (almost) like a charm

by: AdrianMay 25, 2012

I know that you just can’t get enough of the news about the newly unveiled Samsung Galaxy S3, especially when talking about its software, hacks, custom ROMs, and so on. That’s why we’re glad to tell you that the handheld’s TouchWiz UX launcher has been ported to the Galaxy S2, courtesy of a skilled member of the XDA-Developers forum.

The news comes less than a week after the Galaxy S3’s stock ROM has been leaked, a few days after the first custom ROM popped up on the web, and just two days after the S Voice app has been made to work on pretty much any Android device out there.

Now that’s what I call serious involvement from the independent Android developers [...]

Samsung reveals T-Mobile devices will get ICS updates, dates still unknown

by: AdrianMay 15, 2012

“We are in close communication with T-Mobile to ensure that eligible devices are upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the coming months and will provide updates as we have additional details to share.”  That was the only message Samsung had to offer T-Mobile customers last month, when it announced a list of US devices to be upgraded to ICS.

Needless to say, the message was received with reluctance and downright anger by most users, which started to believe that their Samsung gadgets will be completely ignored in the jump to Android’s latest OS version. Fear not, tech enthusiasts, because the list of devices in store for an ICS update has been updated and now [...]
