28 Dezember 12 Multi-Fenster-Update kommt AT&T Galaxy Note II ab heute



5:35 PM

TO (T) has announced that a software update will begin rolling out to its Galaxy Note II beginning December 27th. The arrival of the new software makes TO the last of the four major nationwide wireless carriers to bring multi-windows support to its Samsung (005930) “phablet,” a feature that allows users to open and operate several different apps at once. “ATT plans to begin rolling out a software update for Samsung Galaxy Note II customers that includes the Multi-Window feature, which allows the user to divide the screen into two active ‘windows’ creating a split screen that enables fluid multitasking between applications,” ATT said in a statement. “The update will be available for download over the air beginning Dec. 27." BGR reviewed the Galaxy Note II in October and called it the best supersized smartphone on the market.

26 Dezember 12 Galaxy S3 Does Everything Better Except Stay Out Of Toilet; AT&T Saves The Day


ATT has always been high on my list of companies that offer good customer service. I have never had a problem with them, and they’ve always been more than reasonable with me. They’ve given me credits for both deserved, and probably undeserved issues, they’ve been quite helpful throughout the years, and I’ve always had good phone service whatnot. So, I’ve never had many complaints with them (other than the fact that they no longer offer an unlimited data plan).

I fell in love with my new phone right away. I couldn’t put it down. I spent hours every day customizing it, playing with all the new, awesome features, usw..

Dann, after about 7 days of my torrid affair with the Galaxy S3, it came to a screeching halt, when my phone (which was nestled safely in my robe pocket… or so I thought), came flying out of that pocket as if it had grown some kind of consciousness, and landed itself right in the toilet (a very *clean* toilet, I might add… for the record). Lange Rede kurzer Sinn, I immediately disassembled the phone, and my boyfriend used the vacuum trick to such all the water out of every port. Shockingly, EVERYTHING works on the phone… except the touch screen. In der Regel, you’re lucky to have anything work at all, or to have a screen that doesn’t flash technicolored reminders of your clumsiness at a constant rate.

Nope… the phone’s screen is just as gorgeous as day one, the buttons work, the SIM card works, the voice commands all work (which allows you to operate A LOT of features in the phone).... but the touch screen doesn’t, and that is a deal breaker. I was heartbroken…

Ich, natürlich, called ATT’s regular customer service, simply to go through the motions of going through the proper channels before escalating it. Wie erwartet, they couldn’t help me. A liquid damaged phone is an utterly worthless phone. There was nothing they could do. They were all very nice, professional and sympathetic, obwohl, which I can appreciate.

So, letzte Nacht, I pulled the “email the CEO” trick, and composed a well written email to the CEO and VP’s. I explained what happened, I explained what a great customer I’ve been since 2005, and how many customers I’ve brought to ATT throughout the years, usw.. Im Nachhinein, I probably could have just stuck with that level of information and they still would’ve resolved it, but I wanted to be sure to leave no room for doubt. So, I was sure to throw in a paragraph about my inability to take a total loss on this phone.

I would not only be losing a fantastic $600 Telefon, I would have wasted a $36 upgrade fee, and the actual, much anticipated upgrade itself. I’d have to wait another 18 months for the next upgrade. SO brutal. So, I explained to them that, since I cannot take a total loss on this, if they cannot help me, I would have no choice but to look at moving to Sprint. With Sprint, I could take advantage of their buy back program, which would award me $90 for my iPhone, and with a new 2-year contract, the Galaxy S3 is $200… meaning I could get another Galaxy S3 for about $110, PLUS I could get unlimited data.

I also made a point to acknowledge that I know this was 100% my fault, and that if they chose not to help me, I still wouldn’t trash them to anyone.. but if they DID do this for me, I would certainly sing their praises to the world. So, here I am doing just that.

First thing this morning, I received a phone call, and a follow up email from ATT letting me know that they will be happy to replace my Galaxy S3 for me. Nicht nur, dass, but they offered to replace my SD card if it was damaged from the water, AND they FedEx overnighted it, meaning it will be here Wednesday. They went WAY above and beyond what I expected. I am beyond thrilled and excited that I don’t have to take this major loss on this brand new phone, and ATT has just secured a customer for life with me.

I hope this article can help others to resolve their issues in the future. You should always follow the proper channels (i.e., call customer service, ask to speak with a supervisor or 2, and THEN take it to the executives), but both times I have attempted this method, it worked to my favor tremendously (the first time was with Office Depot, and I got a free $1,000 laptop out of it). I originally got the idea to email the executives from this website! It was the best tip I’ve ever read.

25 Dezember 12 Samsung Galaxy Camera Review: Android Meets Point-and-Shoot Camera


PHOTO: Samsung's Galaxy Camera brings the connectivity and sharing features of Android to a point-and-shoot camera.

A couple of years ago, if you went digging through a purse or a backpack, you’d likely find a point-and-shoot camera. Now you’ll find that most people instead use the cameras built into their smartphones. Not only have camera phones improved, they let you instantly share photos with family and friends.

Samsung has a new ideato bring together the best of the standalone camera and the smartphone. Its new Galaxy Camera is what you’d get if a point-and-shoot camera were crossed with an Android-Handyit promises to take better photos than most phones but has built in sharing capabilities. But can it do it all? Is it the best of both worlds?

WATCH: Samsung Galaxy Camera Video Review

A Camera with a Big Touch Screen
The Galaxy Camera looks like a regular camera from the front, but flip it around and it looks like a big-screen Android phone. It has a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear Touch display, which looks and acts very much like Samsung’s Galaxy S 3 Telefon. It is powered by Android 4.1 oder Jelly Bean. You can navigate through the operating system just as you would on a phone. Ja, you can surf the Web, even check your email and download and use apps from the Google Play Store thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi radio and the built-in LTE. (There are Verizon and ATT versions of the cameramore on the pricing soon.)

You can’t text message or make calls on the camera (that’s not a complaintholding a camera up to your ear doesn’t look all that cool) but you can easily snap photos and upload them to Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, Picasa or other sites. And snapping pics and sharing them is really a cinch. While Wi-Fi-enabled cameras are a dime a dozen, the Android operating system is easy to navigate, especially when it comes to adjusting settings and selecting photos to share. If you’re an Instagram fan, this is the ultimate Instagram camera. And your shots will look better than most of the others in your feed.

A Good Camera with Great Features
That’s because 16.3-megapixel camera has a 21x optical zoom and takes very good still shots. Shots in natural lighting were well balanced, and while low-light performance wasn’t spectacular, it was acceptable for the specs. Jedoch, the photos I took were not as good as shots I take with a $600 Canon DSLR (I’ve got the Canon T2i) or a micro-four-thirds camera. They were better than photos taken with the iPhone 5 oder Galaxy S 3, but about the same as what you get from an average point-and-shoot.

Jedoch, where the camera does stand out as a camera is in its “intelligent” shooting features. Samsung has matched the hardware with some interesting software features, einschließlich eines “best photomode that will select the best of eight shots for you. There is also acontinuous shot” Modus, which captures a series of moving photos. While some of the images I took of my cousins playing football suffered from motion blur, others were clear.

You can also shoot 1080p video and take still shots while you are shooting. Oh, and you can apply Samsung’s own filters and effects, in case you don’t want to use a third-party app. Samsung has brought most of its great Android photo features to the camera. Hinzu kommt, dass, there’s anExpertmode for those photographers who want more manual controls for adjusting aperture, ISO, shutter speed and more.

A Camera With Battery and Size Sacrifices
With all those features come some major sacrifices. Erste, the camera is bulky for what it is. Ja, it has a 21x zoom lens, but the camera is almost an inch thick, 5 inches wide and weighs 11 Unzen. That doesn’t make it large, but it’s much larger than the average point-and-shoot. It’s closer in size to micro-four-thirds or mirrorless cameras like the Olympus E-PL5 or Panasonic GX1, which take noticeably better photos.

14 Dezember 12 Verizon erhält Samsung Galaxy Kamera mit günstiger Datentarif


Samsung’s Galaxy Camera, a point-and-shoot that runs the Android OS, has made its way over to Verizon after launching on ATT last month.

Bei $550, Verizon’s Galaxy Camera is $50 more expensive than ATT’s version, but it does have a couple advantages: A data plan for the camera only costs $5 per month on Verizon if you’re on its Share Alles plan, im Vergleich zu $10 auf ATT (although Verizon says this is a “promotional price”). Auch, the data itself is faster, because it uses Verizon’s 4G LTE network, whereas the ATT version only connects to slower HSPA+ networks.


Sonst, both cameras have the same specs. There’s a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, a 21x zoom lens, an aperture of F2.8 to F5.9 and optical image stabilization. Video records in 1080p at 30 frames per second, or in 720p at 60 frames per second.

Around back, the Galaxy Camera runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on a 4.8-inch 720p display, and it has full Google Play Store access for downloading apps such as Instagram and Facebook. Other specs include a 1.4 GHz Quad-Core-Prozessor, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for up to 64 GB of additional storage.


Verizon’s cheaper data plan makes the idea of a connected camera a bit more palatable, but it still seems like a lot to pay if you’re not constantly uploading photos on the road. Keep in mind that Verizon’s Share Everything plans allow your smartphone to serve as a wireless hotspot at no extra charge. Most users should just skip the data plan altogether and connect the camera to their phone’s hotspot to share and upload photos.

The Galaxy Camera is available now through Verizon’s Website.

13 Dezember 12 Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos, Galaxy S II Plus possibly spied in Chinese


Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos, Galaxy S II Plus possibly spied in Chinese certification

Samsung has been pushing an ever-growing number of its mid-tier phones to larger screen sizes, and there’s further evidence that it’s not about to stop. Following some rumors, both the Galaxy Grand Duos and Galaxy S II Plus appear to have been spotted going through China’s TENAA certification process. The Grand Duos seen here isn’t likely to reach the US given its lack of compatible 3G, but it looks to have a Galaxy S III-based design that’s still relatively fresh for the category. Claims have it mating its namesake dual SIM slots with a 4.5-inch (if just 800 x 480) Bildschirm, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and cameras similar to its bigger cousin.

As for the Galaxy S II Plus? While it should have 3G that works with ATT and Canadian carriers, we’re not anticipating much pressure to bring the S II Plus to North America when the device at TENAA closely resembles the 4.3-inch original, especially if talk of a modest 1GHz dual-core chip proves true. We’ll need an official announcement, or further leaks, to know whether the S II Plus or the Grand Duos are enough to lure in new buyers.
