Samsung Officially Reveals Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic

Sep 01, 2015 - 10:40 AM - by dgstorm

Later yesterday Samsung officially unveiled their new Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic round faced smartwatches. Just as was previously rumored, it looks like Sammy took queues from Motorola, and they are finally getting wise to the better aesthetics of a round watch face. The new Gear S2 and Gear S2 classic both use a round watch face.


The Gear S2 features a sleek and modern design aesthetic that is a far cry from the bland and boring of the previous Samsung Gear watches. The Gear S2 Classic takes the same round face, but adds a more traditional watch face that Samsung describes as a “timeless watch design.” (Timeless? Does that mean it stops functioning? :D)

You can get the Gear S2 in a dark gray watch and strap, or silver watch with white strap, while the S2 Classic is only available in black, with a matching genuine leather black strap. Both devices will include a round 1.2-inch 360 x 360 resolution (302 ppi) circular AMOLED display, include physical rotating bezels and have home/back buttons.

Unsurprisingly, the watches are also NOT Android Wear. They use Tizen, and have a 1GHz dual-core processor. They also contain a battery worth 2-3 days on a single charge, as well as NFC capabilities, mobile payments and wireless charging. Pricing and availability details where not revealed yet, but we will get to see them at IFA on September 3rd.

Here at HQ, we think Samsung should have lead with this design years ago? What do you folks think?

LG 2015 Flagship Rumors: 5.8-Inch 2K Display & Dual-Rear Cameras

Aug 31, 2015 - 11:20 AM - by dgstorm

We are keeping this hot new leak train rolling this morning! The latest intel is about LG's next 2015 flagship. Even though one of LG's execs recently downgraded the next 2015 LG device from "super premium" to "high class," that doesn't mean it won't be a stout device. In fact, that might be the case in more ways than one.

The latest rumor shares some of the specs for the device and they seem a bit beefy. From the sound of these specs, this next LG will be closer to being another G Pro device than a regular G flagship. The intel indicates that LG is planning on including a 5.8-inch 2K QHD display and dual-rear cameras.

It was only last year that LG paused production of their G Pro line. Could this be a return to form for that line of phablet-style devices?

LG Announces a New Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard Called 'The Rolly'

Aug 27, 2015 - 11:32 AM - by dgstorm

For folks who actually want to be productive with their tablets, LG's latest invention might prove useful. It's called "The Rolly Keyboard" (model KBB-700), and it's basically a foldable bluetooth keyboard that is nearly the same size as your standard PC keyboard.

The Rolly is a Bluetooth 3.0 keyboard in which 4 rows of keys fold up on a central "stick." You can check out the video above for a demo of the device. No details on pricing or availability were revealed at this time, but we will get to see it live at IFA in September.

How many of our members out there could use something like this?

LG Reveals Their Newest Android Tablet: The G Pad II

Aug 24, 2015 - 11:42 AM - by dgstorm

While the name won't surprise, the aesthetics just might. LG just unveiled their next generation LG G Pad II Android Tablet. The specs aren't spectacular, but they are nothing to scoff at either. Here's a breakdown:
  • Processor: 2.26GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 Processor
  • Display: 10.1-inch WUXGA (1920 x 1200 / 224 ppi)
  • Operating System: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
  • Memory: 16GB eMMC / 2GB RAM / microSD
  • Camera: Rear 5MP / Front 2MP
  • Battery: 7,400mAh Size: 254.3 x 161.1 x 7.8mm
  • Weight: 489g
  • Network: DL 42 Mbps / UL 5.76Mbps (3G)
  • Connectivity: LTE Cat. 4 CA / Wi-Fi 802.11 a, b, g, n, ac / A-GPS / USB 2.0
  • Color: Brilliant Bronze
  • Other: Reader Mode / Dual Window / QuickMemo+

It's interesting they are calling the color of this device "Brilliant Bronze" because it looks more Burgundy or Maroon from the pic. Here's a quote with the scant details on availability:

Details of price and availability will be announced locally at the time of launch. Visitors to IFA 2015 can see the LG G Pad II 10.1 for themselves in Hall 18 of Messe Berlin from September 4-9.

Samsung's New 'Ultimate Test Drive' Promo Offers $1 (for 30 Days) Samsung for iPhone

Aug 21, 2015 - 11:31 AM - by dgstorm

It looks like Sammy is trying to kick Apple in the groin with their latest promotional offer. It's called the "Samsung Ultimate Test Drive" and it aims to get a Samsung into the hands of any iPhone user in the least bit tempted to try out a Samsung device.

The promo actually offers iPhone users the chance to use a new Samsung flagship device for 30 days if they cough up just $1. The program will only work for iPhone users, and in fact, you have to sign up for the program from your iPhone for it to work properly. The three eligible Samsung devices are the Galaxy S6 Edge, the S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5.

You would think that the offer would be free instead of just a buck, but the dollar price for the 30 day tryout actually makes sense. If you do not return whichever Samsung device you choose within 30 days, you will be charged the full retail price for it. The best way for them to secure the phone and setup that future possible transaction is to already charge your card the $1.

Either way, if you have iPhone using friends who might be interested in this deal, send them this link: Samsung Promotions
