Two devices clearly cut from the same cloth, but one does it up big
The Samsung Galaxy S5 may have been released first, but in many minds the Galaxy Note 4 is the realSamsung flagship of the year. With a nice aluminum frame and improved camera the Note 4 has a lot going for it, but it still borrows heavily from the strides the Galaxy S5 made earlier in 2014.
The heart rate monitor, finger sensor, interior design and software have all been out in the world since the GS5 was released, and while the Note 4 wraps them up a bit more attractive package the Galaxy S5 has waterproofing and an easier-to-hold size going for it. These are the two big devices for Samsung this year, and we've got them side-by-side for some great photos.
HTC has announced that T-Mobile will begin to roll out an update for its version of the HTC One M8 that will add the new Eye Experience camera software that was introduced earlier this month with the new HTC Desire Eye smartphone.
It's been a long and winding road to get to this point, but we're finally approaching the day where you'll be able to pre-order a OnePlus One without an invite. That day is Monday, October 27th — one week from today. The Cyanogen-powered Android handset officially launched back in late April, so it really has been a long road… and we're not even looking at general availability yet.
We've dug up some solid deals on apps, accessories, smartphones, and tablets. If there's something you've been wanting to get your hands on, check out the list below. As always, if you find any sales out out there that aren't listed, let us know in the comments!

The Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo still isn't official, despite the number of leaks we've seen from photos to full-on specs, so here's another press photo instead. While we've seen the new Verizon Droid in both red kevlar and black kevlar, the latest leaked image shows a heretofore unseen version with a textured black inset back that we dare saw looks at the very least somewhat interesting.

Chatting it up about your new Note 4 is half the fun of having one
A lot of people now have a brand spanking new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in their hands. We know, some people are still waiting, but enough people already received their own unit that there is plenty to talk about. And by plenty, we mean plenty.

The best way to show off the differences are some nice side-by-side pictures of the Note 4 and Note 3, and of course we have a nice grouping of them to show off. Read along and see the fine differences in designs between the Galaxy Note 4 and Note 3.

The Galaxy Note series has always been about productivity, creativity, and functionality. It's about getting things done, about having the power to do so.
