Apple Watch

It’s hard to believe, but the Apple Watch Series 3 is the fastest-selling LTE wearable on the market right now. This handy gadget isn’t just everyone’s favorite smartwatch – it’s also one of the best-selling watches in the world!

So what makes the Apple Watch so popular? For one, if you’re working out at the gym, you do not have to haul your bulky iPhone around with you. You can answer and decline calls directly from your wrist: Just tap the green button to take the call or the red one to reject it or transfer it to your phone, Bluetooth headset, or to your car.

Furthermore, if you opt for the Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular service, you can make calls, listen to streaming music, and go online even if you leave your iPhone at home. With an Apple Watch on your wrist, you can also check all of your incoming emails and messages on the go.

To learn what other cool things you can do with your Apple Watch, check out this infographic:

Samsung Unveils The Galaxy Note9, Galaxy Watch, And More At Unpacked Event

Published

on

Samsung Galaxy Note9

Yesterday, we headed up to Brooklyn for Samsung UNPACKED, where the company unveiled the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note9, the latest in Samsung’s premium Note series, along with a few other surprises thrown in for good measure.

First on deck was the Galaxy Note9, which expands on the popular Note8 with a bigger screen, larger battery, massive storage space, faster processor, intelligent camera, and new S Pen. It’s clear that the Note9 is gunning for the iPhone X, and it’s got the specs to back it up. Pull up a chair while we break it all down for you.

The Samsung Galaxy Note9 features the largest edge-to-edge displays ever on a Note, with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display and stereo speakers tuned by AKG, to provide a truly immersive experience whether you’re playing games like Fortnite (which is coming to Android next week) or simply watching YouTube videos.

While the larger screen is nice, the real story here is with the insane 4,000mAh battery, which promises to deliver all-day performance so you don’t need to be constantly hunting for a free outlet to recharge your phone. Leave that charging cable behind and live worry free!

Storage concerns are also a thing of the past, with the “base” model Note9 coming with 128GB of internal storage, and the upgraded model sporting 512GB of storage. Paired with Samsung’s upcoming 512GB MicroSD card, the Note9 can hold up to 1TB, so you will never have to worry about running out of space again. Seriously, that’s more space than my laptop has..

The Galaxy Note9 is powered by a 10nm 64-bit Octa-core processor, and they have upped the ante with the addition of a Water Carbon Cooling system, along with an on-device AI-based performance adjusting algorithm to deliver powerful yet stable performance, keeping things cool no matter how processor-intensive your game or app is.

More would argue that the most important thing on a phone is the camera, so Samsung pulled out all of the stops here, with a unique combination of advanced intelligence features and premium hardware. Dual 12MP rear cameras (one wide-angle, one telephoto) capture all the action, with a Dual Aperture lens that adjusts to light just like the human eye to deliver a crystal clear shot no matter the setting.

But it’s the Note9’s new “intelligent camera capabilities” that have us excited, taking the work out of getting the perfect picture. The Scene Optimizer automatically identifies elements of a photo, classifies it into one of 20 categories, and optimizes the photo accordingly. And Flaw Detection lets you know if there’s something wrong (someone blinked, the image is blurry, a smudge on the lens, etc) so you can take another picture before the moment is lost.

Lastly, the Note’s signature S Pen has evolved. What began as a tool for writing and drawing is now putting more power and control in your hands. Now, with Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) support, the new S Pen allows you to take selfies and group pictures, present slides, pause and play music, and more with just a click. The S Pen charges in the phone in just under a minute, so it’s ready for you in a matter of moments.

The Samsung Galaxy Note9 will retail for $999.99 for the 128GB version and $1,249.99 for the 512GB version. Both phones will be available for purchase starting August 24th online and in stores, and they’re currently available for pre-order.

In addition, customers who pre-order either phone between now and August 23rd can choose between a pair of AKG noise-cancelling headphones ($299 retail) or the Fortnite Galaxy skin with 15,000 V-bucks ($150 retail), or get both for just $99.

Overall, we think Samsung really knocked it out of the park with the new Galaxy Note9. Sure, it’s easy to get a case of sticker shock when you see the price tag. But for those power users who rely on their phones on a daily basis, we think it’s a no-brainer.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4

If you’re in the market for a new tablet, you’re definitely going to want to check out the newly announced Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, a brand new 2-in-1 Android tablet that is designed for power users who need the portability of a tablet and the capabilities of a PC.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 sports a polished modern design, with a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display (2560×1600, 287 PPI) with a 16:10 aspect ratio, along with slimmer bezels compared to Samsung’s prior Android tablets. As a result, the home button is no more.

With Samsung DeX, it feel like you’re using a desktop PC, allowing you to multi-task and open up to 20 windows at once, resizing them when needed. DeX can be used with an optional Book Cover Keyboard, or with any Bluetooth keyboard and mouse you may already have.

If more screen is needed, you can extend Samsung DeX to an external monitor with an HDMI to USB-C multi-port adapter (not included). When connected, the Galaxy Tab S4 can serve as a track pad or a sketch pad, and new this year, the Galaxy Tab S4 can continue to work as a fully functional Android tablet, giving users two screens to accomplish tasks.

Android 8.1 Oreo is running the show. Other features include 4GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 835 processor, 7,300mAh battery (providing 16-hours of battery life), a 13-megapixel camera, four surround sound speakers, a USB-C port, headphone jack, microSD slot, and a pin-connector for the keyboard, along with Samsung’s innovative S Pen.

The Galaxy Tab S4 can be had in either 64GB ($650) or 256GB ($750) configurations, and it’s available in either black or grey. The Galaxy Tab S4 will be available on August 10th, and pre-orders are already open if you are eager to jump on this.
