No one likes to see a brand new smartphone being smashed to pieces unnecessarily, so this torture test video featuring a Galaxy S5 that fights back is the most enjoyable one you’ll find on YouTube. It looks like the handset is going to go down easily after several whacks with a large hammer — but it only takes one blow to the battery to send its abuser running in the opposite direction.


One of the best things about the Galaxy S5 is that you can get it wet. Not just a little bit wet, but completely soaking wet. It’s IP67 certified, which means you can literally take it swimming (up to 1 meter deep) or watch YouTube videos in the bath and it’s going to be just fine.

And just in case you were skeptical of Samsung’s claims, check out the video below, which puts the Galaxy S5′s waterproof form factor to the test in a swimming pool — and in a washing machine.


CyanogenMod founder Steve Kondik has been working with OnePlus on the company’s upcoming smartphone for months, and in a new teaser video uploaded to YouTube this week, he finally gets to see the new handset himself for the first time.

You can enjoy the “unboxing” video yourself below, but before you dive in, you should probably prepare yourself for disappointment.


Amazon finally unveiled Fire TV, its much-anticipated set-top box, at an event in New York City on Wednesday. Priced at $99 and powered by Android, the device will take on rivals like the Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and the Roku 3 — but how does it stack up against these already popular devices?

We’ve put together a handy comparison chart to help you decide which is best for you based on hardware, services, and price.


Google has revived its official YouTube app for Google TV more than a month after it was pulled from the Play Store. The search giant today rolled out a new update that adds customizable closed captions, better SafeSearch, and improved stability.


The only thing Samsung loves more than copying its competition is mocking them. In a new ad for its Galaxy PRO series tablets, the South Korean company picks on rival tablets to highlights the benefits of its own.

Entitled “It Can Do That,” the one-minute clip pokes fun at iPad’s inability to run multiple apps side-by side; the Surface tablet’s keyboard, mouse, and battery dock; and the Kindle for supposedly being little more than an e-book reader.

Like every software platform, Android Wear’s future success will hinge on how it’s supported by third-party developers. But there’s one thing we can be absolutely sure of at this stage — and that is that Google has at least got the basics right.

The search giant’s promotional video, which was published on Tuesday alongside its Android Wear announcement, shows how it has optimized Android — or Google Now — to work seamlessly and elegantly on a tiny touchscreen that fits on your wrist.

But we get an even better look at some of Android Wear’s basic features in the overview video below.
