Bringing to the table a host of new features, while maintaining the lust and charm of previous generation Galaxy phones is Samsung, with their new S7 and the S7 Edge. Unveiled at the 'Mobile World Congress' this week, the phone has received fairly positive reviews and feedback from reviewers around the Globe who attended the event. But is the new Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge good enough to grab market shares from Apple's iPhone and fend-off advances from cheap Chinese makers such as Huawei and Mi? Read more to see what Samsung is bringing to the fight this year.

2015 was a decent year for gadgets- starting off with the usual fervor and enthusiasm, before ending in an asymptotic fashion to make way for a whole new breed of gadgets this year.
Before indulging into what's coming to the markets this year, let's take time to remember gadgets such as the uber-cool Samsung Galaxy S6, and the Apple iPhone 6S from 2015. Leading mobile technology into a level one could only imagine back in 2014, the two managed to up the stakes in the never-ending 'war of smartphones'.
Despite that, there was competition too. The Nexus 6P, Huawei Ascend Mate 8 and the LG G4 receives special commendation for giving the two leading moguls a run for their money. Also worth noting were the fantastic- Apple Watch, FitBit Charge HR; and the desirable Huawei Watch.
In any case, up next is a sneak-peak of what's coming this year. CES mode- engaged!
As you may have noticed, the market for tablet-sized goodies have grown bigger than it ever was, and fans and customers who once opted for much-loved iPad, now have options ranging from different brand names like ‘Samsung’, ‘Sony’ or even ‘HTC’. Sure enough, due to all this newfound love for slates, there are more and more companies entering the industry too. And that as expected, leads to competition (Yes! And that’s what we always wanted. It sure was high time we got our pick to choose the best).
Last year was a blast!!! At least in the electronic and gadget industry, as we witnessed the release of a variety of ground-breaking devices. Proof? The Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X, Note 2, Lumia 920, Nexus 7 and so on. Anyways, as we move on to another fresh year, here is the list of electronics we are expecting to see... Ready? Here's no. 10...
It is a high time in the computing industry, as Microsoft’s OEM partners have got the final release of Windows 8. It's a good thing because, they can now start embedding it into their new devices.
Sure enough, the final product should be available for purchase soon. However, we have sources that state the general release is slated sometime late in October.
Yes, we are quite excited about it. But before we use it as our future Operating System, we have to know what it's actually made of.
Now, if you noticed, it has been a while since we last updated the reviews column. Well, that’s because we didn’t get any new test device to lay our hands on. We’ll talk more on our disappointments later on, but what we have to show you here is a new, or rather my own 'HP Pavilion g6-1241 se'.
Firstly I must tell you that the entire set is not flashy and new. Its three months old now, and was kept as a backup article if we didn’t get anything to test. Nevertheless, it is still a review-worthy machine as I shall explain in this review.
Firstly, let me tell you, no mobile phones were "bricked" while making this article. Anyways in our terms, an electronic device is essentially "bricked" when a serious misconfiguration such as, corrupted firmware or a hardware problem aids to the breaking of the phone; in other words, the phone can no longer function.
No, No, No. It is, a fair comparison. I would say that because what we have here are two smartphones, with the latest hardware and equally new software. So what we should get here are fairly equal comparisons and hopefully, similar results.
It’s been a while since we got to review a decent phone. But we did get our reward for waiting, as we got our hands on our third device-Samsung Galaxy Note. And yep, if you noticed, it is going rather slow for us, partly because markets here rarely lend any devices for more than ten minutes and partly because we are still…unknown.
But we don’t care. And so what we did this time round is get our hands on one of my dear friends ‘own’ Galaxy Note for a couple of hours. Not a pin-point review here but an in-depth one nonetheless.
Well you must have noticed. Everyone has their own apps nowadays, and considering the number of smartphones being sold in the market nowadays, we knew that we were missing out on a lot of action.
