If you are itching to see if your Samsung Galaxy S 4 will be able to stand minor scratches, watch what this guy does to calm your anxieties about ACTUALLY scratching yours while you scratch test your device. This is not an official Samsung release; however, it is from a YouTube user, Szabolcs Ignacz. Furthermore, it is always useful to manage your own expectations and please take extra care not to include sand on your household materials to use for scratch testing. Just saying...
The Galaxy S 4 is built with the new Gorilla Glass 3 by Corning and is said to be tougher and more scratch resistant. The tester used various materials to poke, scratch and slice the S 4 and none resulted in even minutely damaging the surface. It looks impressive once you've seen the video but most users are more interested on how it will fare with sand or concrete or even dropping the device from a few feet off the ground, such as what usually happens when a phone slips out of one's pocket!

What will the Samsung Galaxy S5 look like and what new features will it include? In the first in of the new concept feature videos in association with T3, Tech Radar & Gizmodo we use 3D rendering to envisage what the follow up to the Galaxy S4 might look like as well as reporting on some of the rumoured new features.
Here's a quick list of what the Galaxy S5 proposes in terms of specs:
- 5-inch flexible 2K HD Super AMOLED display (2560 x 1440 resolution and 587 ppi)
- flexible chassis - up to 30 degrees

When the Galaxy S4 was unveiled back in March, Samsung said that it listened to consumers when designing the phone - let's hope it's watching now as well.
Samsung launched a new version of TouchWiz with the Galaxy S5, one that features a cleaner layout, flatter icons and an overall modern look, it also provide a new version of Drivemode.
Dutch website Kopengalaxys5 has just leaked the very first image showing off the flat Drive Mode interface. The interface that the Drivemode provides is also a much simpler one to have you distracted from driving as less time as possible. You can also activate voice control by saying "Hi Galaxy". The Samsung Galaxy S5 will become available world wide sometime during April this year.
Samsung wants you to pay special attention to its latest Super AMOLED screen display by release this TV commerical, see below. The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S has raised a lot of eyebrows with its impressive Super AMOLED screen of 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution.
Super AMOLED screens were usually criticised for displaying over-saturated colours. However, the new variant of Super AMOLED display used in the Galaxy Tab S can reproduce accurate colours when set to ‘Basic' screen mode.
Younghee Lee, Executive VP of Global Marketing of Samsung Electronics had said, "There is no other tablet on the market that can compete with the unrivaled viewing experience, innovative design aesthetics, and industry-leading productivity features of the Galaxy Tab S".
If you haven't heard, the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 are already available in the US since last week for $399 and $499 respectively.
For your longest time, the Android community seemed fixated across the thought of Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, and all sorts of amazing changes it turned out rumored being bringing to Google's OS. Fast-forwarding to today, we now know that this next version of Android will in fact be 4.4 Kit Kat, but that's not stopping some folks from still yearning the future of Android.
Below is a new concept video by the fellow named Craig Tuttle, it's really just one man's vision for Android 5.0, and now we ought to admit his ideas are pretty cool. The recording primarily targets bringing deeper Google Now cards integration, including introducing several changes to the notification bar.
You will also recognize that the idea video shows a fresh opaque white look, rather than the more traditional Android blue colors we know and love today.
Finally, the playback quality also mentions multi-tasking stacks, which look absolutely amazing. Tell us what you think on the comment section below.
