This was a significant development for two particular usage groups: international Galaxy S II users and unlocked iPhone users.  Now being an international Galaxy S II user, I was quite excited to hear this news, especially since we are headquartered...

We’ve previously written about Qualcomm’s S4 chipset and how its appearance in the U.S. versions of the Galaxy S III is not a downgrade from the Exynos Quad. Well here we have yet 1 more reason to laud the S4 as it shows its vastly improved efficiency over the previous generation of dual-core processors As you can see, Qulacomm is quite proud of their 28nm...

Just the other week we saw a small hullabaloo over the Samsung Galaxy S III’s engineered reverse incompatibility with the Galaxy S II’s MHL adapter. Essentially, users were crying foul at the Applesque decision to change the pinout of the Galaxy S III’s micro USB port for what appeared to be no reason.

8 months isn’t a short period of time (heck, a baby takes just a little longer than that to be “updated”), but it certainly seems fast in comparison to the T-Mobile Vibrant’s Gingerbread update, which took well over a year to come out.

Copy and paste has been a hallmark of the digital technology age, forever freeing us from the chains of retyping oppression. The functionality of copy and paste is different in all of its various manifestations and its upgrade on the Galaxy S II is no different. At first I was slightly confused as the copy paste interface was altered but rest assured, it’s better...

I was recently recording some voice overs with my Galaxy S II and I was importing the files to my computer, I was slightly befuddled when I was greeted with this: Now here I am with a time sensitive project and now I gotta go digging through the internet looking for a file converter for this strange format.

Let me guess–the one day you take your beautiful Galaxy S II out of its case, you drop it right onto the bottom right corner, dinging the bezel and chipping or even cracking the glass. I feel your pain: Fear not readers, for your Galaxy S II’s beautiful looks are still salvageable. Sure you could live with a nick here or a ding there, but if you display is...
