• Samsung Is Focusing on the S8 After Galaxy Note 7 Disaster

    Posted on October 27th, 2016 admin No comments

    Samsung is now starting to research and develop its next flagship phone S8 despite the fact that the Korean electronic giant still has no idea what caused some of its Galaxy Note 7 phone batteries to explode. According to Lee Jae-yong, vice chairman and board member at Samsung, who’s also the apparent heir to the company, next year’s Galaxy S8 will come with a “slick design and an improved camera.” It’ll also have better artificial intelligence, Lee said. That all sounds about right for a new phone.

    Samsung acquired the creators of Siri, Viv Labs, earlier this year, so it would make sense for the company to improve its voice assistant. Lee didn’t confirm to the public whether it would be including Viv’s technology in the S8. Given that both Apple and Google market their assistants as a reason to buy their phones, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Samsung at least tried to fit AI into its larger pitch. But are a better camera, AI, and design enough to win back trust?

    Samsung’s Note 7 recall cost the company more than $5 billion, and it’s unclear whether the large amount of negative press will have a lasting effect on sales.

    Samsung not only issued a recall, but also had to send customers fireproof return boxes. That’s not a good look. The FAA banned the devices on flights and continues to announce that they’re not allowed during the boarding process. It’s a federal crime to bring one aboard. Samsung has serious image reworking to do, so let’s hope the company debuts something really impressive in 2017.

  • Samsung Ends Production and Halts Sales of Note 7 After Global Recall and New Fire

    Posted on October 12th, 2016 admin No comments

    The South Korea’s largest company, Samsung Electronics Co. has announced that it is ending production of its problematic Galaxy Note 7 smartphones, taking the drastic step of killing off Note 7.

    Debuted on August 19, 2016, Note 7 was reported to catch fire automatically. Thus at the start of last month, Samsung had recalled the fire-prone device after early models exploded and the latest move comes after customers reported that replacement phones were also catching fire. Samsung will be without its highest-end smartphone that was supposed to compete against Apple Inc.’s iPhones and other premium devices during the holiday shopping season.

    Samsung originally blamed one battery supplier for the problems and switched to an alternative company, but that did not end the problems.

    “Samsung needs to act swiftly and move on to protect their brand image,” said Mark Newman, an analyst with Sanford C. Bernstein in Hong Kong.

    Samsung Electronics shares fell 8 percent in Seoul Tuesday, wiping out about $17 billion of market value, before the Note 7 termination was announced. The stock dropped further in London trading after the news, sliding as much as 9.9 percent.

    The company has not said how many new or replacement phones will be affected by the latest announcement. Analysts estimated the original recall would cost between $1 billion and $2 billion, but that figure will now certainly rise. Chung Chang Won, an analyst at Nomura Holdings Inc., estimated in a research note before the company’s announcement the worst-case scenario of Samsung terminating the Note 7 would cost the company about $5 billion in operating profit through 2017.

  • How to Return or Exchange Your Faulty Samsung Galaxy Note 7?

    Posted on September 19th, 2016 admin No comments

    Due to battery issue, Samsung has officially recalled its Galaxy Note 7 globally starting September. According to Samsung, 35 separate incidents have resulted in a Note 7’s battery catching fire. Sales have stopped, and all devices already sold will be replaced by the company.

    If you have got a faulty Note 7 and have no idea on how to return or exchange the phone, you can check out the post as it lists different instructions for each carrier.

    Go through Samsung:

    Samsung will give Note 7 users the option to exchange a recalled model for a brand-new (and fixed) unit. Any Note 7 sold before September 15 is impacted by the recall, and should be treated as such. If you’re unsure about your device, you can use the IMEI checking tool on Samsung’s recall site.

    Alternatively, users can exchange the Note 7 for a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge instead of a Note 7, complete with a refund of the difference in price between the two devices. Samsung will also allow users to exchange Note 7-specific accessories, should they choose this option.

    Samsung advises users to return the device to the retail outlet at which the device was originally purchased, or call 1-800-SAMSUNG to initiate the exchange directly with Samsung.

    Customers will also receive a $25 gift card or bill credit for the inconvenience. More details can be found on Samsung’s website, by visiting a dedicated webpage for the Note 7 recall.

    Verizon Wireless:

    Verizon customers can return the Note 7, with Verizon waiving the restocking fee through September 30. “Because customer safety is our top priority, Verizon has stopped selling the Galaxy Note 7,” the carrier said in a statement.


    Sprint’s CEO Marcelo Claure posted a statement on Twitter detailing Sprint’s plan of attack for the recall. For current Note 7 owners, you should visit your local Sprint store to return your Note 7. Sprint will give you a “similar device” to use until Samsung is able to fix the issue and sales of the Note 7 resumes.


    The company is “strongly encouraging” customers to exchange the Note 7 and any accessories purchased with it. “Samsung has notified us that they have identified a battery cell issue in certain Galaxy Note7s. They have asked all retailers, including AT&T, to stop selling the device. Because safety is our top priority, customers are strongly encouraged to exchange the Samsung Note7 for a new device. Customers with a Note7 may select a new smartphone, and may also return any Note7 accessories.”


    T-Mobile will issue complete refunds for the Note 7, including any accessories purchased with the device. The company is also waiving any restocking or shipping fees during the exchange process. Visit your local T-Mobile store or call 1-800-937-8997 to initiate the process. T-Mobile expects to have replacement Note 7s “in the next two weeks,” according to a statement published on its website.

    Best Buy:

    If you purchased a Note 7 from Best Buy, you can return the device to the store for a full refund. Here is Best Buy’s official statement: We have stopped selling the Samsung Note7. Customers can visit a Best Buy store to return or exchange their device, without a restocking fee. Customers will have the option to replace it with a new Note7 when they become available.

  • Sony officially announced its waterproof Xperia Z1 smartphone with 20.70MP camera and 1/2.3-inch sensor

    Posted on September 5th, 2013 David Brooks No comments

    After a lot of rumors and conjectures in the past few months, after the previous flagship smartphone release of Xperia Z, Sony moments ago finally announced the Xperia Z1 at the ongoing IFA in Berlin.

    Exactly like the rumors said, the Sony Xperia Z1 takes some of the highlights of the original Xperia Z – the gorgeous OmniBalance design, a 5″ 1080p screen, water resistant body – and kicks everything else into overdrive. The major crowd puller is the 20.7MP camera with G Lens and big 1/2.3″ sensor, but the display tech is new and improved and the Snapdragon 800 chipset is the current chart-topper. This new device could be considered as the bomb of Sony’s preparation for the IFA.

    Sony Xperia Z1

    Detailed specs of Sony Xperia Z1

    General: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, penta-band UMTS/HSPA, 100 Mbps LTE

    Form factor: Water-resistant camera phone

    Dimensions: 144 x 74 x 8.5 mm, 170g

    Display: 5″ 16M-color 1080p (441ppi) capacitive touchscreen TFT Triluminous display with X-Reality and OptiContrast

    Chipset: Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800, quad-core 2.2 GHz Krait 400, Adreno 330, 2GB

    OS: Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

    Camera: 20.7MP camera with 1/2.3″ Exmor RS sensor and Sony G Lens, F/2.0 aperture; 2MP front-facing camera

    Video camera: 1080p video capture with HDR mode

    Memory: 16GB storage, microSD card slot, up to 64GB

    Connectivity: Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, standard microUSB port with MHL and USB host, GPS receiver with A-GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, NFC

    Battery: Sealed 3,000mAh battery

    Misc: IP58 certified – dust-sealed and water resistant beyond 1 meter; shatter proof and scratch-resistant glass for the front and the back panel, metal frame on the sides.

    There’s no word yet on exactly how much Sony will demand for this high-spec beast, but it’s safe to assume that it’ll be roughly on a par with the Xperia Z. But it should be not any less than £500 when it goes on sale in the UK in the coming few weeks.

  • New Graphite iPhone 5S and iPad mini 2’s cover leaked in high-res video

    Posted on September 2nd, 2013 David Brooks No comments

    Previously, the report of champagne iPhone 5S shows high reliability. Now, there’re new reports which are based on highly convinced high-res video that revealed the 7th generation of Apple iPhone would have one more brother – graphite iPhone 5S.

    This means that besides the traditional black and white, there would be more color selections of the next iPhone, like champagne and graphite. And on the Sep. 10th Apple event, we may get even more choices.

    Aside from the color of iPhone 5S, this newly leaked high quality video also revealed the housing design of the next iPad mini.

    iPhone 5S and iPad mini 2 news

    Though the iPhone 5S looks similar to iPhone 5 a lot, we could still see that in this high quality video, the iPhone 5S is featuring double LED flashlights and a smaller Mic jack. The video provides a fantastic detailed review on the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, including additional color frames for the phones. Reportedly, employees of T-Mobile, who requested not to be named – stated they are being told to limit vacation time in September, because all hands will be needed on deck. This of course brings some truth to the release of the highly anticipated iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.

    This video features a surprise visit from the back cover of the Apple iPad mini 2. Originally thought to be seeing the light of day along with the new iPhones on September 10th, those hopes are now dashed. The plastic on the top of the casing lets us know that this particular back is for a cellular enabled version of Apple’s 7.9 inch tablet.

    We’re sure that many of you just can’t wait for September 10th when Apple is expected to unveil the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C. right before the official release of Apple’s next iPhone, you could see the Samsung Galaxy Note III, the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, and the Sony Xperia Z1. We believe the following weeks would be great for those who put fancy on smartphones and tablets. So, keep your eyes here as we would provide more info.
