Samsung has just announced the launch of its own radio service called Milk Music. This will be free for owners of select Galaxy devices and is currently available for download from the Google Play Store.

HTC today reported its unaudited financial figures for February, and they don’t make for pleasant reading for fans of the Taiwanese company. Revenue continued to tank, dropping a massive 36.45 percent from the same period last year to NT$7.22 billion ($238.4 million).
Well, it looks as if the Samsung Galaxy S5 is about to be unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Samsung is sending out invitations to an event called ‘Unpacked 5’ scheduled to occur at 8pm Central European Time on February 24. But what can we expect from Samsung’s next would-be iPhone killer?

When you buy a 16GB smartphone, you don’t actually get 16GB of space to install apps, music and other media. No matter what smartphone you buy, the operating system needs to be installed into memory, and that takes up valuable gigabytes.

The worst offender by far, though? The Samsung Galaxy S4. You won’t believe how little internal memory you get.
One of the downsides to Samsung’s Galaxy Gear is that it’s only officially compatible with the South Korean company’s own family of smartphones, but a new workaround allows Nexus 5 to add Galaxy Gear support to their own handset themselves.
Today, the Head of Design at Samsung Mobile, Dong-hoon Chang, has allegedly confirmed in an interview with a South Korean publication that the company will unveil its upcoming flagship smartphone of 2014, the Galaxy S5, at this years Mobile World Congress, which is scheduled to take place in February.
Over the past couple days, you may have read reports that suggest the Samsung Galaxy Gear is a flop because it has only sold 50,000 units. But in actual fact, it’s the complete opposite. In just two months, it has become the world’s most popular smartwatch with 800,000 sales worldwide.
Will flexible, bendable smartphone screens ever become a reality? Samsung thinks so. In fact, if you ignore the hysterically douchetastic concept video they are using to promote the foldable Galaxy tablets of the future, Samsung says we should have folding displays on the market by 2015.
Although Apple is still (very) profitably plugging along with the iPhone, there’s a new king of smartphones, and it’s Samsung. The Korean gadget maker continued to dominate smartphone sales in the third quarter, shipping over 88 million smartphones this quarter compared to just 33.8 million iPhones shipped. And it gets worse for Apple.
