Should I upgrade from the Galaxy Note 4 to the Galaxy S6?

260
Galaxy S6 and Note 4

Considering the timing and differences between the phone, it's a tough upgrade decision to ponder.

Samsung runs two distinct flagship lines, the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note, each offering different qualities to appeal to different kinds of users. The Galaxy S series is the phone for a broader base of users, with a more average-sized screen, a few leading features and a neat design, while the Galaxy Note series turns all of the knobs to 11 with a huge screen, S Pen input, cutting-edge features for the large screen and tons of power.

The phones are released on a staggered cycle, outdoing each other in some areas as they're released about six months apart each year — and that makes the decision a bit fuzzy on whether it's at all worth an upgrade. The phones are in different classes in terms of features and sizes, but we still want to explore the idea of upgrading from a Note 4 to a Galaxy S6 — let's talk about it.

Star Wars #stormtrooper emoji invade Twitter

Sure, there's a newly expanded set of ethnically-diverse and more-useful emoji out there (and already integrated into iOS), but do they have stormtroopers or protocol droids? Didn't think so. Thankfully, Twitter does.

Galaxy S6 battery life bad? This update might help

172

Update April 17, 2015: Now that we've got a day's worth of use under our belts, well, results are mixed as to whether the Samsung Galaxy S6 battery life is still bad, or whether it's improved. A number of folks in this forum thread believe that, indeed, they're seeing better results after Samsung updated its Push app. That's pretty much par for the course, especially when you're looking at things in this manner. We'll continue to keep an eye on this.

Original story: If your Samsung Galaxy S6 battery life has been less than impressive in these initial weeks, well, you're not alone. We've got any number of threads in our GS6 and GS6 edge forums that point to disappointing times before needing to recharge.

An update today from Samsung might help that.

Yes, this is still the LG G4

LG G4

LG this morning on Facebook made official what LG (probably) outed over the weekend: This is the LG G4.

This marketing shot of a woman holding the G4 is the same as one used in that leaked G4 preview site, only from a different angle.

We do learn one new thing, however: the leather is apparently "vegetable-tanned."

Cyanogen's Microsoft deal includes removable apps and 'contextual' suggestions

49
Cyanogen Microsoft

As details emerge, the Cyanogen/Microsoft deal isn't nearly as cringeworthy as many originally suspected.

There aren't a whole lot of Android users out there who enjoy seeing the words "Microsoft apps included" when it comes to their devices — and this goes back a long, long way — and power users who use CyanogenMod and Cyanogen OS are more likely than most to react negatively to that sort of partnership. As a result, news that Cyanogen and Microsoft are partnering to include Bing services, Outlook, and other apps on Cyanogen OS has caused a fair bit of teeth-gnashing and hand-wringing.

Given Microsoft's sordid history when it comes to Android and Samsung's decision to make Microsoft's apps disable-only on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, concern is well deserved.

After a brief email conversation with the folks at Cyanogen, however, some of that initial concern appears largely unwarranted. Here's what's up:

any.do 3.0 is here, and we take this major update for spin

23

When it comes to to-do apps, any.do has more than its share of proponents favoring its minimalist design. And any.do 3.0 — released today — takes that simplistic design and takes it even further.

The last time any.do rolled out a big update, it was focused on bringing in expanded functionality, with attachments and collaboration with other being the focus. That design was close to material, but now we're full-on minimalistic material design ... maybe a little bit too much so.

Today any.do 3.0 is available on Google Play. Let's take a look at it.
