Samsung smartens up its phones

Samsung’s latest Galaxy S6 (starting at $200) and Galaxy S6 Edge (starting $300), available today, represent the state of the art and unquestionably offer several improvements over previous Samsung models. They also offer a collection of features that technically surpass models such as Apple’s iPhone 6. But do you really need more in a smartphone and is it enough to make anyone switch?

Will Samsung’s Gear VR trigger the virtual reality revolution before Oculus Rift?

Samsung Gear VR
Out of all the products that Samsung unveiled yesterday, it was the Gear VR — not the Note 4 or Note Edge — that intrigued me the most. At first I was a little bit skeptical, but as I started to interpret some hands-on impressions, and learn about Oculus VR’s extensive involvement with the Gear VR, the tingling started to swell. Don’t forget that Samsung sold over 10 million Note 3 phablets, and will probably sell even more of the Note 4. If the Gear VR is priced appropriately, we are probably looking at the first real consumer-grade, mass-market virtual reality device.
