After months of anticipation, the Samsung folding phone, the Galaxy Fold, is finally making its way to the UK, and into your pocket. This product has been in the works for years: the company first revealed it was working on foldable screens at CES in 2011, before announcing the Galaxy Fold was on its way back in November 2018. Now, it’s almost here. The new phone will go on sale in the UK on May 3, with pre-orders opening on April 26. After getting some hands-on time with the device at a Samsung event in London, here’s what we thought. Samsung Galaxy Fold: the specs Some pretty impressive tech has gone into making that screen fold. Samsung says it had to create an advanced composite polymer layer for the screen, so it could be flexible and durable enough to be folded. As well, this is the thinnest mobile display it has ever created, 50 per cent thinner than the standard display for a Samsung phone. When shut, the Samsung Galaxy Fold has a … [Read more...] about Our verdict on the Samsung Galaxy Fold: Heavy but very exciting
Rebooting samsung galaxy s5
Jefferson Graham USA TODAY Published 11:00 AM EDT Apr 10, 2019 EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – I'm in an aisle at a Whole Foods Market, testing the difference between shooting a video on the new Samsung Galaxy S10+, and a back-to-back shot on an iPhone. I'm walking at a slow pace, and the video on the Galaxy practically looks like I have a Steadicam or gimbal attached to it. It's that good. The iPhone is not only shaky, but it's not as wide and crisp as what I picked up on the Galaxy. Then it hits me: For all the "Shot on an iPhone" advertising and contests from Apple, sorry, the iPhone isn't the best smartphone camera anymore. In my tests of the Galaxy S10+, I found more versatility, steadier video and overall more pleasing results than with recent iPhone models. Hey, iPhone owners: Will you subscribe to anything Apple?

Samsung kicked off the major 2019 smartphone release schedule earlier this year with the launch of the new Galaxy S10 range. Made up of three phones, the smaller S10e, standard sized S10, and the larger S10+, there was a lot to unpack at the phone launch, not least the arrival of the folding Samsung Galaxy Fold device. But, with the next-gen of folding phones set to cost over £2,000, we’re still going to be relying on our normal single-screen phones for the near future. Is the Samsung Galaxy S10+ the one to use until your dreams of a folding phone are realised? We put it to the test. Samsung Galaxy S10+: Design This is a really good looking phone. I tried the prism white version, the main device colour for the year, and it matches those new Galaxy Earbuds very well. The Galaxy S10+ has a 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen with Samsung’s signature curve. Usually, I’m not a fan of curved screens, devices like Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S10+ review: the best phone Samsung has made
Huawei has just launched its new P30 smartphone range and it took aim at the new Samsung Galaxy S10 range, comparing the camera prowess of the new devices. Huawei and Samsung are neck and neck now, with Huawei overtaking Apple to move into second place in global smartphone sales last year. But out of the new 2019 phone launches, which one is the best? Here are the new flagships, compared. Huawei P30 vs Samsung Galaxy S10: Design Starting with design, Huawei has decided to keep the notch, going for a teardrop design on the P30 range. The P30 Pro has a 6.47-inch OLED full HD display, with 19 5:9 aspect ratio, whilst the P30 has a slightly smaller screen at 6.1-inches. In comparison, Samsung, which was never into the notch in the first place, has gone for the pinhole design, with a tiny amount of space taken up on the right side of the screen for the front-facing camera. Samsung’s S10 is the same size of the P30, with a 6.1-inch Dynamic … [Read more...] about Huawei P30 vs Samsung Galaxy S10: which flagship is better?
A leaked video showing the new Samsung Galaxy Fold in action might actually put you off buying one. Samsung's highly anticipated foldable smartphone will go on sale in the UK on May 3, with an eye-watering price tag of $1,980 (£1,500). The device has a 4.6-inch screen on the front, and opens like a book to reveal a 7.3-inch flexible display on the inside. However, a leaked video of the new device in action shows that, even when fully opened out, the internal display has a very visible crease down the middle. The video, which has been watched almost 900,000 times on YouTube, was shared by Vietnam-based smartphone unlocking company phoneoftime. Many of the people commenting on the video have pointed out how prominent the crease is. "OMG the crease would drive me nuts! I will wait for after few more generations," wrote one commenter. "This thing is barely minutes old and already has a noticeable crease down the middle. $2,000 and I bet it'll be cracked within 3 months use. Nah, I'll … [Read more...] about Leaked Samsung Galaxy Fold video might convince you NOT to buy one
