  • Samsung Galaxy S5 Finally Announced
    Posted on February 24, 2014 by keith holland

    Samsung has finally announced the new Samsung Galaxy S5 and it's got some things we really like, and some things that we think are somewhat par for the course. The phone makes some marked improvements in terms of pure power, it's camera, and it's well-implemented fitness apps. But, with that said, it feels like a case of been-there, done-that when it comes to the fingerprint scanner, lacklustre finish, and the gold colour option found on the Samsung Galaxy S5.



    First of all, the good. This phone is super powerful. It features a 2.5GHz processor, quad-core Snapdragon processor. This is a sublimely powerful device that is powered by a 2,800 mAh battery. While that isn't a huge improvement, the software, Android KitKat 4.4 for those wondering, features some intense battery saving features that kick in when the battery does get low, ensuring you get great endurance from the power source. In addition, the Galaxy S5 features some new sensors including the aforementioned fingerprint scanner and the new heart rate monitor which is built into the camera flash. This will be a big add for fitness freaks. One last grand addition is the ability to combine the power of LTE and Wifi to give your phone super-speeds for large downloads.



    Now, where my complaints are is that the Galaxy S5 didn't really shock anybody. There wasn't really a killer feature that changed the game. They piggybacked off the success of Apple's TouchID, and didn't really spice things up looks-wise with the dimpled back cover. So, while Samsung did up the ante power wise, I feel we got a lot of the same with the Samsung Galaxy S5. A phone that is powerful, yet falls behind on exciting, innovative, and creative features and continues to play second fiddle to the inspiring iPhone line up from Apple.

  • Samsung is preparing to announce..something. No one is saying officially what is coming from Samsung but the obvious contender is the highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5. The new smartphone from Samsung is no doubt on the way, but the question is when with rumours suggesting everything from tomorrow to sometime in April. Seeing as that is something of a liberal timeline, I won't take too much credit, but the February 24th date does fit within it. So with that, let's decipher the invite.



    By the looks of it, if this event is indeed dedicated to the Samsung Galaxy S5, this invite could be giving us a quick look at what to expect from the Galaxy S5's user interface. The actual icon titles may be inconsequential, but some could related to the new device. For one, it is expected that the Galaxy S5 will be faster. Other terms are far too general to really extrapolate any further.


    Based on the invite, what else could we see? Perhaps Samsung will try to right its wrongs with the Samsung Galaxy Gear and make a more fitness oriented smartwatch. One thing is for certain, Samsung is expected to deliver big things this Summer. Whether or not we hear about the Samsung Galaxy S5 this soon, or we have to wait, PureMobile will be ready with reviews, guides, and accessories for this flapship device from Samsung.

  • New Years Resolutions For Samsung
    Posted on December 18, 2013 by keith holland


    2014 is approaching rapidly and PureMobile is taking stock of what we think some of the World's largest tech companies should set as their personal New Years Resolutions. First up is Samsung. in 2013 Samsung released the first smartwatch, a series of tablets, phablets, and even more phones. But what resolutions should they strive to follow in 2014? Read below to see what we think!


    #1 - Don't Give Up On The Smartwatch


    I would never, ever wear one. I don't know many people who would. But, let's be fair. Once Apple jumps into the smartwatch arms race they will be everywhere. Maybe the Galaxy Gear is a somewhat flawed product, but you can guess bet Samsung knows what is wrong with their first wrist hugging smartphone thing and will be making resolutions to improve it.


    #2 - The Galaxy S5 Has To Be Awesome


    This goes without saying, resolutions aside, that your flagship product has to rock. I personally believe Apple is as vulnerable as they'll ever be. The world still thinks they are weaker for losing Steve Jobs. The Apple iPhone 5S was cool I guess, but not revolutionary. Ditto for the iPad Air for being cool I suppose. Samsung has a unique chance to sucker punch Apple with the Samsung Galaxy S5. So. Don't just throw a fingerprint reader in it. Don't just adopt 64-bit processors. Wow us with a phone that puts doubt in Apple fanboys and fangirls everywhere. There is no better time to take a shot at your biggest rival Samsung.


    #3 - Get In Or Get Out When It Comes To Video Games


    Going out on a limb here, but Samsung has a major stake in the Android game market. While they remain in second to IOS games, they could improve that standing by finding a partner in console gaming. Whether or not it's Nintendo, Microsoft, or Sony, Samsung would have a lot to gain by bringing some sort of second-screen compatibility to a major video game console. Think about it. Your games on TV, with your phone as a controller, and you aren't paying hardware costs for any of it. Resolution? More like priority.

  • The Samsung Galaxy Gear is the first smartwatch from Samsung. Unveiled alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, The Galaxy Gear is designed to work with the hulking Note 3 and, eventually, the Samsung Galaxy S4. This device aims to reduce your dependence on your smartphone by taking functions that usually require you to pull out, unlock, and power up your device and making them doable by looking at your wrist.


    The Samsung Galaxy Gear gives you the ability to handle phone calls and answer text messages without pulling out your smartphone. While it doesn't presently support email or social media, the number of apps available for the Gear is expected to increase after the smartwatch hits the market.



    Aesthetically, The Galaxy Gear is a very well put together device. It features a button-less front, a brushed metal finish, and a black rubber strap. This combination makes for a very solid package overall. The device features just one button. This button powers up the device with a single click, or activates the voice command features with a second click. It also comes in a wide variety of colours, but we are particularly fond of the black and silver finishes. Overall the look of it walks the line between being nerdy and professional, but should be universally accepted in terms of its looks.


    The screen itself is a 1.6 inch touchscreen. While that seems on the small side, the screens 320x320-pixel resolution is nothing to laugh at. Small text looks sharp and there are no problems reading names, numbers, or texts on the Gear's screen. The Gear's onboard camera, which is built into the strap, is 1.9 megapixel shooter and is powered by a 800 MHz processor.


    While the technology is new, the Samsung Galaxy Gear gives us lots to be excited about when it comes to the smartwatch. It will be interesting to see how apps are eventually utilized on the device and where we go from here when it comes to wearable tech.

  • Samsung has hit some major home runs over the last couple years. They launched the massively popular Samsung Galaxy S3. This phone went on to sell boatloads of units and really raise the profile of Samsung in the handheld market. The proper follow up to that smartphone was the Samsung Galaxy S4. The Samsung Galaxy S4 marked a major improvement on the S3 and raised Samsung's profile further. Samsung is looking to grow their marketshare even more with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. This slimmed down version of the S4, the S4 Mini is a powerhouse phone, shrunken down to compete with smaller smartphones like the Apple iPhone. We are going to take a look at the coolest cases to outfit your S4 Mini on the Blog today.


    Otterbox Commuter



    Protect your Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini with Otterbox's Commuter Series. The Commuter Series is a slim and tough protective case made of a durable silicone mid-layer and a one-piece, custom-moulded polycarbonate shell.

  • The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is going to be hitting stores this week across multiple carriers. This "phablet" was revealed last month by Samsung along with the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch and features some very high-end specs. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3's 5.7 inch screen is a full 1080p screen, making it one of the clearest screens on any smartphone to date. In addition to a super powerful screen, the Note 3 is run by a super slick, quad-core SnapDragon 800 processor. All this is powered by a massive 3200 mAh battery that is sure to push this phone far battery-life wise.


    While all the hoopla about the phones internals is worth debate, we are here to talk accessories. Samsung of course will be first out of the gate with their official accessories. Samsung tends to deliver the most functional accessories for their devices as seen with their collection of flip covers for their earlier phones like the Samsung Galaxy S4. In the case of the Note 3 they have done so again by introducing some very high quality covers for their new device.


    Samsung Leather Cover



    Protect your new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 from all angles with this high quality leather cover from Samsung. Featuring a silicone cover to protect your smartphone, this leather cover folds shut to protect your Note 3 while it's not in use. The case itself protects your phone from dust and water and does so without compromising your phone's functionality as all key buttons and ports are accessible while you use this case.


    Samsung S View Leather Cover



    The S-View Flip Cover is designed to provide the best of both worlds, combining the fashion and privacy of a Flip Cover with the convenience of a screen window that allows view-through access to alerts, status and vital information. The viewing window within this cover is interactive, making it possible for you to answer or reject incoming calls and end current calls without having to open the flip. The S-View Flip Cover also powers up your display when opened, and puts it to sleep when closed.

  • Samsung is getting the jump on Apple in more ways than one in unveiling the Galaxy Gear smartwatch on September 4th. The unveil precedes Apple's press event on September 10th and the companies desire to release their own iteration of the smartwatch. Samsung is hoping that beating Apple to the punch will translate into results for the company, and finally get the Apple monkey off their back as they set the market for smartwatches on their own terms.


    The Samsung Galaxy Gear is set to ship in five different colours. This includes white, orange, grey, black, and gold. The curved screen that Samsung has shown off at tech events over the years will not be utilized by the Galaxy Gear as of yet, but by the sounds of things, the goal is to eventually produce a smartwatch with a curved screen. This certainly depends on how well the new device does at market and whether or not it is worthy of future investment. What we will likely see instead is a square OLED screen around 2.5 inches across.

    Functionally, it appears as if the Galaxy Gear will feature advanced optimization with other Galaxy products like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Tab. Some potential features include the ability to sync your watch instantaneously through an app with your phone, allowing you to do things like read text messages on your watch seamlessly. For those thinking that the watch will replace your phone or tablet, that is highly unlikely as features such as messaging and calling will need to be synced up with your existing device via a Bluetooth connection.


    While we are speculating, this is brand new tech. We are likely in for more than a few surprises come September 4th when Samsung holds its unveil for the Samsung Galaxy Gear. Whether or not Apple responds sooner or later with the iWatch remains to be seen, but the first shot across the bow of the smartphone war will be fired by Samsung.

  • Despite an international ban to the contrary, US President Barack Obama has decided to veto a ban on certain Apple products in the United States stemming from the drawn out patent battle between the California-based company and Samsung. This has had a very negative effect on Samsung's value internationally, with their share values dropping from $169.3 Billion to $168.5 Billion, a loss of over $1 Billion.


    This is all as a result of an International Trade Commission imposed ban on US imports of certain Apple products, and the vetoing of this ruling by the White House over the weekend. This ruling originally came down in June of this year after Samsung won a patent battle with Apple ruling that certain products, the iPhone 4 for example, violated patents held by Samsung. The veto of this ruling was the first of its kind by a US President since 1987.


    What could further complicate this mess is the fact a ruling is expected soon on whether or not Samsung had violated patents held by Apple, resulting in potential US import bans on certain older models of Samsung devices like the Samsung Galaxy SII and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. This decision is expected to be made later this week.


    What does this mean for consumers? Not surprisingly, this political and commercial theatre will equate to just about nothing in terms of value for consumers. At the end of the day, companies like Samsung and Apple likely won't change their practices much in the wake of the veto. In the grand scheme of things, this could have a negative effects between the US government and Samsung and their home country of South Korea, who won't look fondly on the US vetoing a major victory for Samsung with just the stroke of a pen. As always, the big winner in this will be lawyers, who are certain to be promised plenty of paperwork as these decisions are appealed and analyzed.

  • Another day, another shot fired between the boats of Apple and Samsung, and this time it's in favour of the Galaxy S3 and S4 maker. Last week it was announced that Samsung had surpassed Apple in terms of profitability, becoming the most profitable phone maker in the world. This means the end of Apple's four year reign at the top, beginning with the rise of the iPhone. Samsung now has its own powerhouse in the Samsung Galaxy S3, and the recently released Samsung Galaxy S4. But how exactly did they, being Samsung, do it?


    It came down to last quarter. Apple posted $4.6 Billion in profit in the second quarter this. A handsome chunk of change for sure. Samsung managed to top that though, bringing in $5.6 Billion dollars in profit in the second quarter. The recipe to their success? strong volumes, high wholesale prices, and tight cost controls. Those factors combined pushed Samsung into the mobile profits lead, knocking the giant, apple, out of top spot for the first time in 4 years. But why did Apple sink? Apple has failed to deliver a wide variety of phones at lower price points, something they are now under a tremendous amount of pressure to do.


    So what's next? Well, Samsung is here to stay. While a lot of this has to do with Apple falling, Samsung has also risen up to take control of their share of the market. With that being said, I believe Apple is just one announcement away from regaining their post at the top. Why? Because no matter what Samsung does it will never be as cool as Apple. Plain and simple. The only problem with Apple right now is that they have gone too long between devices, but people will forget that when they roll out their next iPhone or iPhones later this year.

    The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the heir apparent to one of the most popular phones ever made. It released this year to high acclaim in the mobile world, settling comfortably in most critics top five smartphones. The S4 Mini is, as expected, the shrunken down version of that behemoth. While it packs some of the same punch, the weight behind it is expectedly less.


    The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini

    For starters, the S4 Mini features a dual-core processor that is clocked at 1.7 GHz and 1.5 GB of RAM. For your eyes, the Mini features a 4.3 inch AMOLED qHD display. This display is of course known for its ability to conserve battery power by not requiring juice to project black. Unfortunately, it is also not a true HD screen, but it is still very crisp. The Mini features a plastic chassis, which might feel cheapish to some, but keeps the phones weight very light. The S4 Mini ships with the Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean OS.


    For those who were completely turned off by the gesture controls on the original S4, rejoice! Gesture controls are gone with the Mini. Unfortunately, LTE also didn’t survive the chopping block when it came time to fit the S4’s guts into a smaller chassis.


    The S4 Mini features a 1900 mAh battery which hides behind the phones removable back panel. There you’ll also find the absurdly hard to access microSD port. The Mini only features 8 GB of internal memory, but luckily that can be expanded up to 64 GB.


    Big Brother, meet Little Brother.

    The S4 Mini ships with two cameras. Firstly, a 1.9 Mega-pixel front facing camera for your shameless selfies, and an 8 Mega-pixel shooter on the back. It also features an LED Flash which should help with night time photography.


    Battery wise, due to the dual-core processor and smaller screen, the S4 Mini actually fares quite well when it comes to battery life. The average user will have no problem going to bed with plenty of battery to spare, meaning you won’t have to worry about late night cabs or emergencies.


    While companies continue riding the wave of the Mini craze, Samsung has made a pretty decent phone. The S4 Mini may feature less processing power and a not-quite HD screen, but it gets a lot of things right too just by nature of being the little brother of the S4. People looking for a smaller scale superphone don’t need to look much further than the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini.


     


    Pros


    -Good battery life


    -A proven design


    -4.3 inch AMOLED Screen


     


    Cons


    -Drop from quad-core to dual-core is quite pronounced


    -Only 8 GB of internal storage


    -No LTE


     


    Specs


    Weight : 107 grams


    Size : 124.6x 61.3x 8.9 mm


    Screen : 4.3 inches


    OS : Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean


    Camera : 8 Mega-pixel rear, 1.9 Mega-pixel front
