There Is An S4 Clone With Spyware Being Sold On eBay!

without comments

star-n9500Buying smartphones can be a risky task, specially when you are buying off a marketplace with a seller you do not know well. Something dramatic has happened with folks buying a Galaxy S4 on eBay.

The Star S4 SN-9500 is a clone of the popular Samsung Galaxy S4, but it is clad in a spyware robe inside out. The German data company G Data confirmed this and the news has spread worldwide ever since. The phone has been delisted and banned from eBay which reduced  the company’s reach by more than a million viewers and potential buyers.

You must choose wisely and select well known brands, those few precious bucks you were trying to save may cost you many folds more. Stay safe!

Verizon Galaxy S4 and S3 Mini Get KitKat Update!

without comments

maxresdefaultSamsung hasn’t been first in line to deliver updates as they are rolled out by Google, but then something is better than nothing and after a long period, the Galaxy S4 and S3 mini get the Android KitKat update for Verizon.

As you would expect you get SMS and Hangouts integration, Google printing, immersive mode, etc. There are some significant performance improvements, but can’t say if the battery life has become any good or worse. As with every other update, you must wait for your chance, or try hitting the manual update button if it works out for you.

KitKat Coming To Your Verizon Galaxy S4 & LG G2!

without comments

gsmarena_001We accept it, it’s painful to wait while you know that it has been months since the latest Android version has been announced but your carrier hasn’t been giving any hint of it. Seems like Verizon is ready to fix all that with official updates to the 2 flagships of 2013, the Galaxy S4 and the LG G2.

Verizon has been a slouch when it comes to update, but if if they really start rolling out updates the day the leak suggests, then things might change afterall. The G2′s update file is 2GB in size, but no details on the S4 one. It’s wise to sit tight for now and wait till the over the air updates start making devices pop on Verizon!

Possible Galaxy S5 Active Spotted In Database!

with one comment

galaxy-s-4-active-pocketnow-6It really did seem that with the launch of the Galaxy S5, Samsung wouldn’t launch another piece of hardware any soon. Shortly after, we saw rumors of an unknown device with a model no. and now it is spotted in user profiles too.

We have learnt that the GS5 Active might arrive as Samsung’s model SM-G870, and that carrier variants may be coming to AT&T and Sprint. There’s still no sign of a Sprint model, but the UAProf for the SM-G870A (the A pointing to AT&T) has been spotted on Samsungs server.

We really don’t know much about the device at this moment except the fact that it would be carrying a 1080p display, what do you wish it has? Would you like the fingerprint sensor too?

without comments

Galaxy-Gear-titleWithing a span of 6 months we’ve seen Samsung go from the first generation Galaxy Gear To the Gear 2 and Gear fit, just closely timed with Google’s announcement of Android wear.

While as usual, people move onto the next big thing and there are tonnes of articles about the Moto 360 already, the Galaxy Gear was a decent device. If you’ve been curious about smartwatches and have just been waiting for a decent model to pick up an attractive price, we may have the deal for you, with Best Buy offering refurbished first-gen Galaxy Gears for $99.99, today only.

Although the new devices run Tizen, if you purchase the original Galaxy Gear you are assured by Samsung to an update that transforms that device to Tizen.

Galaxy S5 Zoom Specs Have Leaked Out!

without comments

zoom2After the big launch of the Galaxy S5, everyone was hoping that there would be a second announcement of a second flagship this year, one that is much more premium, the “F series”.

Samsung’s CEO just came out in the wild and told the media that there will be no premium device out this year, all hopes are now on the rest of the series, if there will be any mini or zoom just like the S4. Like the Note 3 Neo, the Galaxy S5 Zoom is expected to run one of those new hexa-core Exynos chips. With a 4.8-inch 720p display, this screen is  larger screen than on the GS4 Zoom. The phone should pack 2GB of RAM, what looks to be 8GB of storage, and support microSD expansion.

Let’s get to the real deal here, the S5 Zoom is expected to come with a 20 MP sensor, a bump from the last years 16 MP. We are expecting an ISOCELL here but still this isn’t confirmed yet.

without comments

samsung-galaxy-s5Samsung’s fifth generation flagship – the Galaxy S5 is waiting to roll out this April and boy is the interent going crazy commenting over it.

An unknown Samsung device with model number SM-G870A has been leaked through Indian import site, Zauba. The device is for research and development purpose. Although, there is no official word so far, Galaxy Club claims the SM-G870 could be Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini. There are no real specs we know about this device yet, but as far as the screen is concerned, it it expected to be a Super AMOLED one with Android KitKat 4.4 onboard. We really hope Samsung does not cut down the specs way too much like it always does with it’s ‘mini’ series.

Samsung’s “Galaxy Only” Music Streaming Service ‘Milk’ Is Here!

without comments

milk-music

Milk … seriously Wa..What!!  Once you get that weird name, you realize that it’s a not a bad service at all, definitely not for Galaxy owners who’ll get it free of cost(for a limited period!)

Milk is a streaming service offering 200 curated genre-based stations and a library of some 13 million songs, all powered by Slacker. It has no ads for now. It’s unique dial based and mood background fused interface makes it kind of unique. However, there is no support for offline downloading or caching, and one can only skip  6 tracks at a time.
