Galaxy S2 Commercial Pokes Innocent Fun At Apple Fans

by: Charlene OwenNovember 24, 2011
Promoting the Android Galaxy S II line, the advertisement doesn’t have flashy graphics, cool techno sounds and a list of device features. Instead, it places Samsung opposite of Apple, joking about the latter’s sometimes obsessive fanboy culture while giving users a teaser of a new and powerful alternative.

How to Get Alpha Port Of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich For The Samsung Galaxy S2

by: RandyNovember 23, 2011

Although the Ice Cream Sandwich for the Samsung Galaxy S2 has already been confirmed, I could not help myself when news on the Alpha port of ICS for the SGS2 appeared on the web. Despite having a “stable” ROM, not everything seemed to be functioning at this point of time – all thanks to its developer xplodwold.

Being the “serial flasher” that I am, I took the first dive into the ICS port to get a taste of this sweet treat. Considering that it was an Alpha port, it’s not a recommended daily ROM that will pique the interest of most users. Although, it’s surprisingly smooth on the SGS2 (maybe even smoother than the Galaxy [...]

2011 has proven to be a very significant year for Samsung. Not only did they release the Samsung Galaxy S2 – a respectable phone with a reputation that holds its own; there’s also a Galaxy Note, the first 5.3” phone-tablet with an S Pen Stylus. Samsung also holds the privilege of releasing the 3rd Nexus phone – the Galaxy Nexus – running Android 4.0, and the first ever Android phone with hardware acceleration. They also clinched the top smartphone manufacturer in Q3 of 2011, as well as surpassed Symbian to become the No.1 manufacturer in South East Asia.

These are causes for celebration – and at the South East Asia Galaxy Note World Tour in Jakarta, Android [...]

iPhone 4S Gets Demolished in Drop Test, Samsung Galaxy S2 Lives to Android Another Day

by: Darcy LaCouveeOctober 17, 2011

Apple sells a lot of devices – and a lot of them break. Ask anyone that’s owned a smartphone, tablet, or anything portable, beautiful and expensive what happens over time – they drop it. I’ve already dropped my Galaxy S II half a dozen times, and I’ve only had it two weeks. Should have got a screen protector, sure. Easy to say now, right? Thankfully, the damage appears to be non-existent, and I thank the Gods of tech for gracing me with such good fortune.

Either way, enough of my bantering.  Apple’s decision to design the iPhone 4, and 4S with “glass backs” sure looks pretty, but make for a tough handset it does [...]
