The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 & 4 Classic are our 2021 smartwatches of the year

Before this year, Wear OS was in pretty desperate need of a shakeup. The platform’s software development had grown so languid, it was almost a running joke among techy types. In May, Google announced it was partnering with Samsung to finally do something about it. Then, this summer, we got the first fruits of that joint labor: the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch4 Classic. They’re both really good. In fact, together they win our Editors’ Choice award for our 2021 smartwatches of the year.


Google said its Wear OS 3, built together with Samsung, is meant to combine “the

Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 5G Review: Light Work, Anywhere

When someone considers a 2-in-1 as the best ultrabook for them, it’s clear that person wants a certain degree of flexibility. And not just the screen. The Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 5G ($1,399.99 as tested) is a lightweight, portable notebook that allows for multiple forms of connectivity (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 5G) and inputs (touch, keyboard and mouse, included stylus).

In its base configuration, with an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 and 8GB of RAM, it isn’t for heavy workloads, and with just 256GB of storage, you’ll want to have some good cloud

Samsung’s Android 12 release for Galaxy S21 humbles all other OEMs

Last updated: November 15th, 2021 at 21:36 UTC+01:00

We were hoping for One UI 4.0 to launch in November after a Samsung Community Manager hinted at a possible early release, and sure enough, the update went live today for the Galaxy S21 series worldwide. The One UI 4.0 update introduces new customization options, new privacy settings, as well as other refinements to the user experience and the UI. But aside from the update’s content, what really impressed us this time around was Samsung’s fantastic firmware support and the speed with which it released the first One UI 4.0 public build.

Samsung officially starts rolling out One UI 4 with Android 12 for the Galaxy S21 family

Over the past few weeks Samsung has been testing the update to One UI 4 based on Android 12 in public on members of its Galaxy S21 flagship smartphone family, and today is finally the day you’ve all been waiting for. The company has announced that it’s officially rolling out One UI 4 to the Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra. This comes mere hours after an inadvertently posted rollout schedule first revealed that these handsets would get the update this month.

As usual with such things, while the rollout starts today, expect it to take a few weeks to

Google Pixel 6 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra: Which Android phone wins?

A Google Pixel 6 Pro vs Galaxy S21 Ultra comparison is just what you need if you’re trying to decide which is the best Android phone for you — especially if you prefer a big screen.

As you’ll see in our Google Pixel 6 Pro review, this $899 flagship is all about value. The 6.7-inch Pixel 6 Pro also delivers stellar cameras, thanks in part to its Tensor chip. And you get special features like Magic Eraser and new Google Assistant powers.

Meanwhile, our Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra review shows that this $1,199 big-screen phone is an absolute beast.

The Galaxy Z Fold 3 has amazing hardware, but its software feels unfinished

Source: Chris Wedel/Android Central

Foldable phones are still relatively new in the grand scheme of smartphones. But that doesn’t mean that some of these products aren’t impressive. For example, while the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 isn’t a significant improvement over the second generation Galaxy Z Fold 2, the fine-tuning that Samsung has done with the device is very much welcomed. However, the bulk of that tweaking Samsung did with the Z Fold 3 was mainly on the hardware side of things. The software and UI are very much the same as the prior version — and that’s unfortunate because

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Review: First Good Android Smartwatch

I admit I’ve begun to give up hope that Android smartwatches would ever improve. Until recently, the market was messy and fragmented with so many issues that it seemed certain no one company could solve them. Over the years, Samsung’s smartwatches tended to be the best of the lot, but its watches, which ran on Samsung’s own Tizen operating system, also forced non-Samsung smartphone owners to make compromises with no good alternatives.

But I have good news. Samsung’s new Wear OS-based Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic are here, and while they’re not

The Galaxy Watch 4 injects Samsung’s capable hardware with Google software

Today we’re getting our first look at the fruits of Samsung’s smartwatch collaboration with Google: the new Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. It’s a big deal in wearables, because after years of trying to go it alone with its own Tizen platform on smartwatches, Samsung is finally biting the bullet and collaborating with Google on its operating system.

I get the sense with these two smartwatches that Samsung is hitting a bit of a reset button with its wearables lineup. Yes, there’s the Wear OS operating system, but Samsung is also taking the opportunity to tweak the
