Yesterday, much of the mobile tech world watched as Samsung launched the new Galaxy S 4 at its Unpacked event at Times Square in New York City. While opinions have largely been split on the device, with many complaining about build materials and its seemingly iterative changes, one thing is clear: The Galaxy S 4 represents the pinnacle of what Samsung brings to the table in mobile technology.
The Galaxy S 4 is Samsung’s flagship device for 2013. The S 4 ups the ante of its predecessor thanks to a 5″ 1080p Super AMOLED display (PenTile 441 ppi), an octa-core Samsung Exynos 5410 or quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 (depending on region), 2 gigs of RAM, up to 64 gigs of storage, LTE connectivity, and a 2600 mAh battery. Furthermore, the device features additional features such as floating touch and a 13 MP shooter featuring a revamped camera interface. All this brute force is encased in 7.9 mm of Samsung’s well known Hyperglaze plastic finish.

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market. One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
