This is why the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 won't come to Europe

Written by  
Samsung has revealed that the Galaxy Note 5 will not be making its way to Europe. I have long suspected that the Note series is coming to an end, and the decision not to launch the latest model in Europe suggests that might indeed be the case. But with both the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ being released elsewhere, why is the Note 5 being withheld from Europe? 
The answer almost certainly lies within another question: why would Samsung release two almost identical devices at the same time? Either to test an unproven formula, or to initiate the withdrawal of a series while introducing a new one. In the end, either method would probably end with the same result.

S Pen vs Dual Edge

Though the Galaxy S6 was a commercial disappointment, the S6 Edge was a surprise success. This would indicate to Samsung that its future phablet success could lie with a high-end dual-edge display variant, rather than a more 'typical' smartphone model.
The original Samsung Galaxy Note was probably one of the company's biggest innovations, but the large display became less of a unique selling point with every passing year, and for two years its size stagnated at 5.7 inches, while the competition continued to get larger. With 5.5-inch handsets now fairly commonplace, the extra fifth of an inch on the Galaxy Note 3 and Note 4 no longer seems, if you'll forgive the pun, noteworthy.

As for Samsung's S Pen, the stylus it introduced for use with its phablets, our sources in Germany tell us that only 20 percent of Note-owners actually use the stylus. It seems the biggest of Samsung's recent innovations have exceeded their expiry dates.
The dual-edge display, however, is currently Samsung's big USP, and to date no one has reproduced it in the same way. Samsung has a real opportunity to capitalize on innovation once again. But maybe people do still prefer the old-style Note phablet and stylus? It could be that Samsung is running a Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ 'test', to see which proves the most popular.

Is the fate of the Note sealed?

If the Galaxy Note 5 will be released in the US, but not in Europe, then it might be a sign that the future of the Note series has been decided.
It seems that Samsung has finally realized what I have been saying for years. The success of the iPhone owes a lot to the fact that the brand is so well known and recognizable. 
Samsung's most identifiable smartphone characteristic is currently the dual-edge display, so it makes sense to branch it out to as many products as it can. The S6 Edge+ takes that dual-edge display to a larger, Note-sized device – why would Samsung need a Galaxy Note when it has that?
Are you disappointed to be missing out on the Galaxy Note 5 in Europe? Let us know in the comments below. 

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 vs iPhone 6 Plus comparison: huge competition

Written by  
The new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is pretty nifty, but it’s going up against Apple’s biggest and best iPhone, the iPhone 6 Plus, and a successor to that could be unveiled as soon as next month. How does the Note 5 fare against Apple’s current big beast? Let’s find out in our Galaxy Note 5 vs iPhone 6 Plus comparison.
samsung galaxy note 5 iphone 6 plus volume buttons

Galaxy Note 5 vs iPhone 6 Plus: design and build quality

Let’s face it. The new Note really looks like the iPhone 6 Plus, albeit without the attention to detail that Apple lavishes on its hardware. The Note 5 measures in at 153.2 x 76.1 x 7.6 mm and weighs 171 g. 
The 172 g Plus is Apple’s biggest phone, at 158.1 mm tall and 77.8 mm wide, but it may be a little too thin - early reports suggested it was a little bendy, something that’s been addressed with the imminent 6S, but it’s still a work of engineering art. Nobody makes phones quite like Apple does.

Galaxy Note 5 vs iPhone 6 Plus: display

The Galaxy Note 5 has a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display delivering 2,560 x 1,440 pixels at 518 ppi, and it’s absolutely superb: pin sharp with excellent color reproduction and good viewing angles. As with any AMOLED the display can be a little bright for some tastes, but that’s easy to adjust in each device’s Settings panel. The display is protected with the latest generation of Gorilla Glass, which comes with claims of 80 percent better durability than the glass on some lesser smartphones.

Apple’s screen is smaller and less dense: it’s a 5.5-inch backlit IPS LCD with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels at 401 ppi. The viewing angles are superb and color reproduction is excellent, but the Note has the more impressive display.

Galaxy Note 5 vs iPhone 6 Plus: processor and storage

The Note 5 comes packing an eight-core Exynos 7420 processor with 4 GB of RAM, and it’s backed up with either 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage, but no microSD card slot. Samsung hasn’t announced clock speeds yet but the same processor in the Galaxy S6 is clocked with four cores at 2.1 GHz and four at 1.5 GHz.
The iPhone has Apple’s A8 processor, which is a dual-core 1.4 GHz ARM-based system of Apple’s own making. On paper it’s rubbish compared to the octa-core Exynos, but Apple’s total control of hardware and OS means it can optimize its devices really well. The Note is by far the faster device, but iOS is smoother than even Lollipop, which is likely to cancel out the spec advantage here. There’s just 1 GB of on-board RAM and the choice of non-upgradeable storage is 16, 64 or 128 GB.

Galaxy Note 5 vs iPhone 6 Plus: camera

The Note 5 has a 5 MP front-facing selfie snapper and a 16 MP rear camera with optical image stabilisation. It’s the same as the current Galaxy S6 camera and sensor, which we've previously found to be really good.
It’s another on-paper defeat for Apple here: its main camera may have optical stabilization and a dual LED flash, but it’s just 8 MP. However, it’s backed by one of the best sensors in the business, so don’t let that number make you think iPhone 6 Plus photos aren’t good. They are, and rumors suggest the next model will be getting Sony’s latest sensor and a mystery next-gen camera system. How exciting.

Galaxy Note 5 vs iPhone 6 Plus: software

The Note 5 runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with Samsung’s recently slimmed down TouchWiz, and will get Android M when the operating system is finished.
iPhones, of course, run iOS. The current version is iOS 8 and the Plus will get iOS 9 when it’s launched in the fall. You either like iOS or you don’t; but the similarities between iOS and Android grow with each release.

Galaxy Note 5 vs iPhone 6 Plus: battery

The Galaxy Note 5 comes with a 3,000 mAh battery, which is significantly larger than the 2,550 mAh unit you’ll find inside the Galaxy S6. It also gets the same power saving and power management features we saw in the S6, so hopefully that means all-day battery life – something the Galaxy S6 doesn’t always manage. The Note 5 also supports fast charging, which tops the battery up by around a third in 15 minutes. Full charging takes two hours using wireless charging or 90 minutes with a cabled charger.
Apple doesn’t offer wireless charging or fast charging, and its 2,915 mAh battery is slightly smaller than the Note 5’s. However, Apple did a good job with battery optimization in iOS 8 and the iPhone’s difficulties in going all day are largely gone.

Galaxy Note 5 vs iPhone 6 Plus: early verdict

The Note 5 is a superb phone, and on paper at least it deals blow after blow to Apple’s biggest iPhone: it’s got a bigger, better screen, much faster processing, more RAM and more megapixels. Apple’s control of hardware and software means it can narrow the gap somewhat by optimizing like crazy, but there’s been a year of tech improvements between last year’s iPhone and this year’s Note.
For now the Note is arguably the better phone, but that’s likely to change in September when Apple is expected to unveil its 2015/2016 models. The Note may have caught up and perhaps zoomed past Apple, but Apple isn’t going to take that lying down.
What do you think? If money were no object, which one would you go for?

Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2015: What to expect

Written by  
Samsung Galaxy Unpacked is being held today at simultaneous events in London and New York. As one of Samsung’s biggest annual events, we're expecting to see the launch of the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+, and possibly a new tablet. Here’s what’s in store later today.
galaxy note 5 droid life rumors

Based on what we know so far, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is expected to look like a large Galaxy S6 - that is, a slim, metal phablet. In a departure from the previous devices in the series, this time we do not expect a removable battery or expandable storage, but perhaps an auto-ejecting stylus and new Air Command options could make up for it.

The S6 Edge+ is tipped to be, you guessed it, a larger Galaxy S6 Edge. Unlike the Note 5, this doesn’t appear to be coming with a stylus, instead it looks basically like a big Galaxy S6 Edge, with perhaps a few software tweaks. 
One rumored improvement to the internal specs is the battery life, which may be slightly boosted to 3,000 mAh. Don't expect any huge improvements over the standard Galaxy S6 Edge, though.

Is Samsung’s first curved-screen tablet on the way also? Based on a quickly-pulled Samsung Philippines promo image, yes. The image above shows three silhouetted devices for unpacked, two of roughly the same size, believed to be the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+, and one noticeably larger device beneath.
Samsung will stream a live presentation of the event from its official website at 11:00AM EDT. Come to AndroidPITlater for our preliminary Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ reviews, along with some early comparisons.

Ex Google and Apple employees have made a phone they claim gets better the longer you own it

Written by  
San Francisco startup Nextbit is set to launch a new Android smartphone that it claims will improve over time. This new device will be launched on September 1, and will be the first smartphone produced by the new mobile developer, which comprises former Google, Apple, HTC and Amazon employees, and can name Google Ventures (Google's venture capital investment arm) as a backer.
11705451 660649237398371 576498674590745254 o

In an interview with CNET, Nextbit said that the device “will perform better over time and function at a higher level” because of the company's continued optimization of the Android operating system. Nextbit Chief Technology officer Mike Chan added: “We’re focusing on a device that can adapt to you.”
Quite what this means, or how this will affect the phone over its lifetime, we don’t yet know, but we'd have to assume it is something more than the standard Android software updates that other smartphones already receive. 
Chief Executive Tom Moss, an ex-member of Google's Android team, says the phone is "going to be friggin' awesome."
Nextbit’s experience in Cloud Storage will also play a part in the device's functionality; the company plans to use cloud technology to increase the device storage and allow you to carry "as many apps, photos and videos as you want.”

"Every day you grow as a person, so should your phone." How is Nextbit going to achieve its goal? / © Nextbit

The device will cost in the region of US$300-400 and CNET said that the company is “looking to move forward with a different kind of premium device.” As it is being spearheaded by Scott Croyle, one of the key figures behind the HTC One’s design, it's probable the new smartphone will also have an attractive design. 
We’ll have more on Nextbit's Android phone for you shortly, but we’re certainly intrigued by what we know so far. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below.

It's official: iPhone users are dirtier than Android owners

Written by  
We all know those generalizations about Android and iPhone – that iPhone owners earn more money and have more sexAndroid owners consume more porn and so on – but a new study has revealed something a little more interesting: iPhone owners are 50 percent dirtier than Android owners.
Brighthouse, a UK online retailer, commissioned a study to find out which household gadgets are the cleanest. Brighthouse tested 170 items, including game controllers, remote controls, laptops and 38 different phones – 24 iPhones and 14 Android. Of these, the iPhones were found to be 50 percent dirtier than their Android equivalents.
A 'hygiene score' of 100 was deemed acceptable for devices such as these, but the average smartphone scored a horrifying 697 (and one iPhone 5s owner scored a terrifying 3,060!).

The science is in: iPhone owners are dirty. / © Brighthouse
On a 'threat scale' of one to 10, smartphones in general came in at a worrying eight – the most threatening category of household objects on the list. Tablets weren't much better, although Apple tablets were found to be five times dirtier than the recommended level.
So, what gives? We put our dirty minds to the task of unravelling this filthy mystery, and present for you here a list of like, totally scientific reasons why iPhones might be dirtier than Androids.

Android owners 'clean up' more often

Let's assume Android users are indeed a little more porn-obsessed than your average iPhone owner. If this is true, then maybe Android owners are a little more prone to 'cleaning up'. That would explain why Android owners have cleaner smartphones than their Apple counterparts.

Android owners keep their phones longer

We all know most Apple fanboys insta-buy whatever the latest Apple product is, and that many of them are on a yearly upgrade schedule. Compare this to us poor, uneducated Android owners (that claim's in a study too).
We have to keep our phones for several years, so we tend to look after them a little better than than those flush, consumerist iPhone owners, who, we assume, simply buy a new phone whenever the old one gets dirty.

Won't someone think about the children?

If iPhone owners are having more sex, perhaps that also means that iPhone owners have more children. Those children have sticky fingers and those sticky fingers are getting all over the iPad. Maybe. When in doubt, blame the kids. Or the dog. It was probably the dog.

iPhone owners are more vain

Perhaps not surprisingly, iPhone owners also rated themselves more better looking than their BlackBerry and Android owning counterparts. Apple users also spend more money on clothes and grooming each year. Maybe the average iPhone user is too busy grooming themselves to actually clean their phone. Or they've just gotten a lot of hair goo, fake tan and spot cream all over their phones.

Android owners have better manners and cleaning habits

The same study responsible for around half of the silly claims about Phone and Android owners also came up with this little gem: Android owners have better manners and are better in the kitchen. So when an Android owner spills something, they clean it up and carry on with that duck confit they were making.
On the other hand, iPhone owners are more prone to make a huge mess and run away from the scene of the crime, complete with a dirty phone in their pocket. That actually sounds like another one you can blame on the kids, come to think of it. At least the dog might clean up the mess.

So there you have it. Those are our best tongue-in-cheek guesses to explain why iPhone owners are dirtier than Android owners. If you've got alternative explanations to unravel this mystery, feel free to share them in the comments below. The winner gets a cleaning cloth. Actually no, they don't. We don't have any to spare. They're all being used.

How to backup everything on the Galaxy S4

Written by  
Just as we mentioned in our factory reset for the Galaxy S5 article, backing up your data regularly and exhaustively is a boring but absolutely critical process. Getting good backup habits is like having good dental habits. It may not be the sexiest activity, but the alternative is far worse. Today we'll show you a couple of methods for backing up everything on your Galaxy S4.
galaxy s4 2

Backups basically fall into two categories: those for rooted users, and those for non-rooted users. If you are not rooted, you still have several options available, which we'll cover below, and those S4 owners with root level access simply have an easier time of it (that's a topic for another tutorial).
We'll show you the best methods for keeping your apps and data safe so if you have your phone stolen, get a Gremlin-filled update or otherwise fall foul of good luck you're essential data will still be secure.

Don't just rely on backups

There's a lot to be said for the old-fashioned way of backing things up: regularly transferring them to your computer. Connect with a USB cable (don't forget to install the Android USB drivers first) and copy your pictures, music and documents to your hard drive.
You can also use cloud storage to automatically save various files on your computer, like Google's great Photos app that automatically uploads your camera shots. You can also link certain folders (like screenshots for me) to a cloud service like Drive or Box.
Of course, your emails are internet-hosted and WhatsApp messages are safe because they are backed up to your SD card every day at 4 am anyway (you just need to save the database file before doing a reset).
AndroidPIT S4 settings backup restore

You don't need root for backups

If you're not rooted you've still got options. In the settings menu of your smartphone or tablet you'll find the backup and reset settings, where you can add an account to which your apps, data and passwords can be backed up. This is usually your Google account.
This is also where you set your restore options and activate a factory reset. It is also a good idea to sign in to your favorite apps with an account that can be used to store your data if you lose your phone or have to reinstall the app at some point. Many apps also offer cloud backup options and you've got plenty of cloud backup services that you can use to regularly schedule backups too.

How to make a Galaxy S4 backup

If you don't want everything stored in the cloud or on your Google account then you can simply use your computer to make a backup of your apps and data. The best in class in this area is Clockworkmod's Carbon Backup, now known as Helium.
Helium - App Sync and BackupInstall on Google Play
Simply install Helium on your Android and then on your computer, click the following link to download Helium for desktop and follow the prompts. You'll be able to backup all sorts of stuff, including your apps and data, predictive typing predictions, text messages and call logs. Here's how it's done.
AndroidPIT USB Debugging Developer Options

1. Just be aware that you need to have USB Debugging enabled in Developer Options in your phone first (see screenshots above). Just tap build number (in Settings > About Phone) seven times until it pops up. Connect your Galaxy S4 to your computer with a USB cable and establish the connection.

2. Once you've established the connection just start selecting the apps and data you'd like to backup. You can ''select all'' or individual apps and you also have the option to only backup your app data, but not the app itself. This makes your backup file much smaller, and you will simply need to reinstall the app from the Play Store before restoring your data.

3. Don't forget to enable PC Download in the action overflow menu to activate a unique IP address on the Helium server from which you can access your backup from your computer. Just type in the unique URL to download your backup for safe keeping. Otherwise, hit Backup and you're done. Now you just need to remember to do backups regularly!

How to free up storage on the Galaxy S5

Written by  
The Galaxy S5 might not have sold like Samsung wanted it to, but it's still a smashing device with a strong following. It has been out for a while now, and you might find that you're constantly running out of storage space and don't know what to do. Follow our guide on how to free up storage space on the Galaxy S5.
 IMGL9089 2

Delete unwanted pictures, music and videos

It's an obvious solution but you might not be aware of just how much space all of this stuff takes up. For example, where do you think all of those WhatsApp pictures you are sent get saved? No, not the magic WhatsApp filing cabinet, they're all saved in your internal storage.
You can assign WhatsApp to automatically remove media after 30 days, but other media you will have to hunt down yourself. Go to apps > my files > and tap images, audio, videos, whatever you want to remove. After this, tap and hold on an item - it will become highlighted. Highlight as many as you want and hit the "trash" symbol to delete them.

Go to apps > my files > and delete items from whatever folder you want. This is also the place to check out what type of files are taking up the most space. / © ANDROIDPIT

Get a cloud storage app

This solution will also help you free up space used by your media. We've already provided a list of the best cloud storage apps for Android and it's something you should really think about. In most cases, you can set these apps to automatically backup any photos you take: this means that you're safe to delete photos from your device storage at any point, and they will still remain backed up in the cloud if you wish to view them again later. 
The methods will differ depending on the backup method you use, but in Dropbox's case, go to the Dropbox settings in the app and switch "camera upload" on. Any pictures you take in future, and all of your previous pictures, will get backed up, meaning you can delete them from your device once they've been uploaded, saving you more precious space.

Once you have downloaded a cloud storage app, you can move files there by highlighting them (tapping and holding on them) then hitting the options button, then "move" - your cloud app will show up as one of the destinations. / © ANDROIDPIT

Remove unused apps

If you don't want to install yet another app as recommended above, you might consider uninstalling some apps. Apps come in various sizes, with big-budget games usually taking up the most space. If you aren't making use of an app any longer, why have it installed? Removing apps is a simple procedure and a quick-and-easy way to free up space. You can always grab them again later if you want to.
androidpit galaxy s5 uninstall unused apps
Tap apps > then the options (3 dots) button > then tap the apps you wish to uninstall. The ones without a minus sign can't be removed, sadly. / © ANDROIDPIT

Make use of an external SD card

One of the beauties of Samsung's Galaxy series is that it traditionally means devices comes with a space for a microSD card. This can essentially act as another hard drive for your smartphone, meaning you can move pictures, videos, and even app data to be housed there instead of in the internal storage. You will need to buy an SD card, but you can pick them up in various sizes from Amazon

You can move apps to your microSD card by going to settings > application manager > tapping on an app and hitting "move to SD card" on the following page. / © ANDROIDPIT
For media files, go to apps > my files > tap options (3 dots button at the top right) and select "move" to put them on your SD card (if you have one). Nice.  

Clear app data

Clearing app data can save you some precious megabytes, but it comes at a price. When you "do stuff" in apps, Android saves data -- this can be your preferences, habits, anything you have done in that app since it was freshly installed.
Think of it as all of your "personalizations", so that you can re-enter the app and pick up where you left off. While this data is good for apps which you often use, if there are apps filled with data which you haven't touched for a month, it's not so useful.

Leaked Photo Shows Hideous Keyboard Cover For Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+

Written by  
Sometimes, just when you think you’ve seen every bad idea in smartphones – usually with a BlackBerry logo on it – something comes along and reminds you that there will always be something even more ridiculous around the corner.
The award for strangest accessory we’ve ever come across goes to Samsung, after notorious leaker @evleaks posted an image of what is claimed to be a keyboard cover for the soon-to-be-announcedGalaxy S6 Edge+. You read that right, it’s a keyboard and a cover in one.
Samsung-earphones-main.png
The photo, which we have little reason to believe isn’t real given the leaker’s track record, shows the Galaxy S6 Edge+ donning the abomination that is the keyboard cover, and it’s just as horrendous as it first sounds. Covering only the bottom portion of the handset’s screen, this keyboard cover should give owners of Samsung’s latest Galaxy phone a way to type on a physical QWERTY keyboard should the idea of using a software keyboard fill them with dread. We didn’t think that there were too many of those people left these days, but someone at Samsung clearly believes otherwise. It seems The UI will automatically adjust itself to compensate for the hidden portion of the screen and, as the cover slides over the device’s hardware keys, it will come with substitute home, back and multitasking buttons.
There are obviously no details yet as to when the keyboard cover will be released or how much it will cost, but with the Galaxy S6 Edge+ set to be announced at an event next week, we don’t expect to have to wait too long before the thing gets its first outing.
Galaxy-S6-Edge-Keyboard-Cover
With software keyboards now very much the norm, it is easy to forget that at one point, many Android phones came with slide-out hardware keyboards because some people still felt they were required. Years later, however, the software keyboard has improved so much that hardware keyboards have almost died out, though Samsung obviously thinks there is a need for them still.
We don’t think you’re likely to see too many of these keyboard covers around, though.
