Samsung Galaxy S5 released in February in Barcelona. Samsung isn’t shy when it comes to loading its top-of-the-range phones with headline-grabbing specs, and the Galaxy S5 is no different. Centre stage is its quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, which runs at a blistering 2.5GHz. This chip, paired with 2GB of RAM, means the phone shouldn’t have any bother smoothly running any app you throw at it.
The phone comes with Android 4.4 KitKat and a new version of Samsung’s TouchWiz interface.
Meanwhile, a 2800mAh battery should give the S5 enough juice to easily last a day (Samsung claims 21 hours of talk time), and as with previous Galaxy S phones it’s swappable.
It’s just been one and a half week, since the all new Samsung GALAXY S4 is roaming around the market. The successor of GALAXY S III and the most recent entrant in the world of smartphones, the Samsung GALAXY S4 has started making sensations long before its announcement.

When it comes to upgrading your phone, there’s one very big question that most people have: iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S III? Answering it is not easy.
Let’s get one thing out of the way first, the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III are both excellent smartphones. Both are top of their class, both very impressive in the experience they deliver, and of that there is no doubt.
Screen Size: First, let’s talk about screen size. The iPhone 5 has grown, it’s up to 4 inches; the first size upgrade since the phone debuted. This means a taller, larger screen that iPhone fans have been waiting for.
If you want real size, the Samsung Galaxy S3 has the numbers, 4.8 inches to be exact. This is more real estate for your viewing pleasure.
Screen Display: With the iPhone 5, you get their well-known Retina display on the 4-inch touchscreen. There is a 1136×640 resolution, or 326 ppi (pixels per inch). There is a fingerprint-resistant coating on the front.
In the Galaxy S3, you get a slightly better resolution of 1280×720, but due to the larger 4.8-inch size the ppi is slightly less. The HD Super AMOLED screen on the GS3 is very bright and attractive.
Processor: The iPhone 5, no exaggeration, is lightning quick. Apple did a bang-up job with its dual-core Apple A6 processor, and you won’t be waiting long to do anything. But Galaxy S3 is definitely up to pace, in fact it’s even faster. Its 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor is nothing to sneeze at (the European version is even better with a quad-core processor). Multitasking will not slow it down in the least, even if it involves intensive apps such as Pandora Radio or Netflix. In the area of RAM, the iPhone 5 features 1 GB, but the GS3 features a whopping 2GB of RAM.
Storage: You can get the iPhone with various storage levels – 16, 32 or 64 GB, but no upgradability in the iPhones. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is available in 16GB or 32 GB options, plus it has a microSD slot, which allows for up to 64GB, so the potential for more storage space is there on the GS3.
Battery: 4G phones are notorious for sucking up battery, but with proper management of your features like WiFi and Bluetooth, you can make them last longer. Samsung’s GS3 slightly outlasted Apple’s iPhone in my testing, and both were among the better 4G phones I’ve seen so far. They got me through the day and then some, unless I was just going crazy with my app use.
Cameras: More and more these days, people skip the standalone digital camera and rely on their smartphones. As a result, there are high expectations in this regard. Both the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S3 have fantastic cameras, and fantastic video quality too. Both devices have an 8-megapixel camera in the rear, as well as crystal-clear 1080p HD video that looks amazing and life-like on replay. They do well in low light, for the most part, compared to previous versions of these phones. In the area of front camera, which is used primarily for video chat, the GS3 does a little better with its 1.9-megapixel camera. The iPhone 5 front camera comes in at 1.2 megapixels. Both phones’ front camera feature 720p HD video quality.
Operating Systems: This is really the big difference between these two phones.
Apple’s iPhone 5 runs the latest version of Apple’s operating system – iOS 6. This features integration with Apple’s ecosystem – iTunes, iBooks, etc. When you use an iPhone, you’re in Apple’s world. Some people like that, others don’t. With the Galaxy S3, you get Android 4.0 (aka Ice Cream Sandwich), and an update promised soon to Android 4.1 (aka Jelly Bean), and you’re in Google’s world here – Google Maps, Google Voice, Gmail, etc.
APPS: Apple, of course, was out with its iPhone before Android phones ever hit the market, so they got a big jump on the competition in terms of having better app selection. And it’s true that pretty much whatever you need to do with an app, Apple’s got you covered on the iPhone. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the Android competition loses this battle. It may have gotten a later start, but in the past several years Google’s Android Market has grown by leaps and bounds, and I would say at this point it’s caught up to Apple’s App Store in terms of offering whatever you might need in the app department.
4G Networks: The big news about the iPhone 5 is that it’s (finally) capable of accessing the 4G networks of its carriers. The iPhone is offered on Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint, who all have their own 4G LTE networks. Verizon and AT&T’s networks are the most expansive right now, and Sprint’s is newer so its reach is limited.
The Galaxy S3 is available on all four major wireless networks – Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. It’s basically the same phone on all four networks, other than some carrier-specific software that’s included on each version of the phone, plus the fact that it will access a different 4G network, depending which version you buy.
The Samsung Galaxy S III is a smartphone designed, developed, and marketed by Samsung Electronics. Like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S II, the S III is a touchscreen-based, slate-format Android smartphone, with additional software features, expanded hardware, and a redesigned physique. It employs an intelligent personal assistant (S Voice), eye-tracking ability, increased storage and a wireless charging option. Here are some Samsung galaxy s3 pictures….
Depending on countries, the 4.8-inch (120 mm) smartphone comes with different processors and RAM capacity, and 4G LTE support.
The S III comes with version 4.0.4, officially named “Ice Cream Sandwich”, which became commercially available in March 2012 with the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus. Ice Cream Sandwich has a refined user interface, expanded camera capabilities, security features and connectivity.
The Galaxy S III has a polycarbonate plastic chassis measuring 136.6 mm (5.38 in) long, 70.7 mm (2.78 in) wide, and 8.6 mm (0.34 in) thick, with the device weighing 133 grams (4.7 oz). Samsung has abandoned the rectangular design that can be found on the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II, and instead has incorporated round corners and curved edges, reminiscent of the Galaxy Nexus. The phone is available in two color options: “Marble White” and “Pebble Blue”; however, “Pebble Blue” has reportedly been altered to a metallic blue-grey shade.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 which received a ban in U.S over a case with Apple, is now available in U.S markets. The new Galaxy Tab 10.1 from Samsung has a quad-core processor running at 1.4 GHz, a 5 megapixel rear camera, and a 1.9 megapixel camera on the front. The front camera has the ability to keep the device in active mode, instead of standby, based on detection of a user’s eye movements.
Here are some of the pictures of this amazing device.
Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the most anticipated mobile phones at the moment. It is expected to be released anytime in April 2012. But few websites have already leaked Galaxy S 3 images. Few of them taken as it is from TV screens. Here we have got some Images of Galaxy S III which will give us an idea how this latest Android machine would look like.
Samsung has officially unveiled its seventh Android tablet – the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, which is the first to come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from day one.
The Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) will be one of the first tablets available with Ice Cream Sandwich, which has a haltingly beautiful design and tons of new features like facial recognition unlocking that make using Android elegant and fun. The Galaxy Tab 2 will join Samsung’s diverse family of tablets like the Tab 8.9 and 10.1, which compete the best they can against Apple’s iPad, the most popular tablet in the world.
Like the original Galaxy Tab P1000 and the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, the Galaxy Tab 2 has a 7 inch display with 1024 x 600 pixels. Measuring 193.7 x 122.4 x 10.5 mm and weighing 344 grams.
One of the big selling points of the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 will be that it’ll come running Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) straight out of the box come March. The Galaxy Tab 2 we fondled was sometimes laggy to unlock or while booting up the hubs but on the whole, the 1GHz dual-core processor (and 1GB of RAM) coped just fine with Ice Cream Sandwich-flavoured multi-tasking.
Now Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 has three easily accessible hubs – Music Hub, Reader Hub and the new Video hub, to launch you into your digital world. The Video hub has 1000 movie and TV titles to rent or buy and we reckon it’ll easily take on similar entertainment offerings from Sammy’s competitors. Plus the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is one of the first tablets to get in on ‘allshare play’, Samsung’s entertainment-sharing set-up.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2’s 3MP rear facing camera takes surprisingly decent snaps with fairly realistic colours, though we should point out that it’s hard to be an exact judge under the unflattering lights of a convention centre. There’s also a VGA snapper on the front that’s good enough for video calls.

* TouchWiz / L!ve Panel UX
