That Annoying Bixby Button on your S8 Can Finally be Disabled

When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S8, it also unveiled Bixby - its very own answer to Siri. The handset had a built-in button especially for calling upon Bixby, and Samsung was adamant that you weren't going to use that button for anything else. Read More >>

Samsung’s Flexible Flip Phone Might Be Coming Next Year

The Frame by Samsung Is Not a Work of Art, But It Sure Is a Fine TV

The Frame by Samsung is about as pretentious as a television could be. It’s a £1,999 4K TV that doubles as a digital display for works of art. You can even hang it on your wall with a “no gap” mount and attach faux wood panels to the sides so that it looks like painting. Neat idea, sure, but inevitably, The Frame by Samsung is still just a television wrapped in a fancy sales pitch. Read More >>

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Review: Bigger, Badder, But I Still Want More

Forgive me for passing up the chance to beat the exploding battery joke into the ground. Let’s get straight to the point: Samsung’s once dominant flagship phablet is back after a two year hiatus. Sporting a stunning extra-widescreen 18.5:9 display, the new Galaxy Note 8 is bigger and more engaging than ever before, and it packs a larger power pack than any Note besides the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 too. But a lot has changed since 2015—especially when you consider that starting at £870, the new Note 8 is now more expensive than ever. That means there are two questions it needs to answer: Does the Galaxy Note 8 still make sense in 2017, and can it possibly be worth damn near £900? Read More >>

The New, Smaller Samsung Frame TV Is The One That I Want

Samsung's The Frame is a TV that's just as much a piece of art as it is a television. Switch it on and it's a 4K Ultra HD; switch it off and it'll display any of hundreds of pieces of art. And Samsung's just announced a smaller 43-inch version, that interests me a lot more than the existing 55-inch and 65-inch versions. Read More >>

Samsung Shoehorns AI Assistants into Washing Machines

We have in our inbox an email from Samsung, announcing the existence of the WW8800M. It's a £1600 washing machine, basically, which justifies that exorbitant price tag by mentioning both the Internet of Things and a built-in AI assistant in the spec sheet. Read More >>

A Cheaper Version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Might Happen

Let's not beat around the bush, Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 costs a lot. Far too much for most normal people to justify, especially if they're on a two-year upgrade cycle. £869 is, after all, more than I spent on my last phone and TV combined. Well Samsung might have a solution to that problem: a cheaper variant of the Note 8 with lower specs. Read More >>

The Note 8 Won’t Fit Current Gear VR Headsets, so Samsung’s Releasing a New One

Did you hear? Samsung's releasing a new phone. Shocking, I know. While the Note 8 is all flashy, shiny, and exciting, there is a big problem. It won't fit in existing Gear VR headsets, so if you want both you'll have to go out and buy a brand new headset. Read More >>

Samsung Says That Bixby Speaker is Still Happening

Everyone and their dog is trying to muscle in on the smart speaker game these days. Amazon pioneered the gadgets, but Google, Apple, and Microsoft all want in.

Samsung Note 8: The Return of the Original Jumbo Phone

It might seem strange that the most recent Samsung flagship phablet you could actually buy is the Galaxy Note 5, which debuted way back in August 2015. But the Note 6 never existed (Samsung skipped that number when jumping to the Note 7), and despite multiple unsuccessful attempts to fix its exploding batteries, the Note 7 was killed and pulled from stores last year, which left a gaping 5.7-inch hole atop Samsung’s phone lineup. If I were a Note fanboy, I’d be pissed about the sad series of events that has resulted in a year wasted. Read More >>
