Samsung found itself at the centre of controversy last year owing to the whole ‘Pengate’ scandal. Apparently, users of the Galaxy Note 5 did not prove to be as smart with the stylus as their smartphone, or so Samsung claims. The S Pen on the Note 5, when inserted the wrong way, would not only get stuck inside the Note, but would also damage the sensing mechanism of the display. Basically rendering your phone into a regular non-Note Samsung device.
However, now, reports of a new patent suggests Samsung may have found a solution to this problem either way.
The image shows that the S-pen can be fitted at a 90 degree angle and be used as a stand if the device [...]
Motorola clearly cannot stop teasing us about the ‘shatterproof’ tech of its new Moto X Force. In yet another series of teasers, the company now mocks Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and HTC One M9; both fairly decent devices if you ask us. But Motorola is quite bent on making you think otherwise.
So this is what happens when HTC One M9 is dropped from a height.
It was a little painful to have One M9’s little particles flying around in all directions. But Motorola is truly having fun mocking the device in this video. And it obviously is not done yet. Because a jab a day is not enough, Motorola came out with yet another teaser. This time the device in [...]
Samsung’s newest addition to the Note family comes not as much of a surprise. Especially after all the leaks and Samsung setting precedent with its S6 and S6 edge. Samsung has found the right mix of hardware, software, build and design for devices this year.
Does the Note 5 fit right in? Let’s find out.Overview

The Note 5 is priced at Rs. 53,900 for the 32GB version and Rs 59,990 for the 64GB variant. Samsung has used the same design philosophy as seen in the Galaxy S6 [...]
With the launch of the iPhone 6s, comparisons between Apple and Samsung, two of the most prominent names in the tech world are driving tech-freaks up the wall.
While Apple has always been a leader when it comes to UI, Samsung boasts of better features on paper. The former may not be able to compete with the latter in terms of numbers and stats, but it definitely is a smoother device to work on. The fluidity and smoothness of any Apple device is unmatched by even the best gadgets in the market. Therefore, the new iPhones; 6s and 6s Plus, can be expected to deliver the same fluidity to the user. Apple gadgets, after-all, have always been more than just big [...]

Last year, Apple had trouble dealing with Bendgate for the iPhone 6 and now Samsung is dealing with ‘Pengate’ on its new Galaxy Note 5. The recently launched handset comes with a standout 5.7 inch and the ability to write notes on the screen with the S-Pen even when the phone is locked. The Pengate is being called merely a misplaced pen, while reports point out that the main problem with the Note 5 is not the phone in itself but the stylus.
It has been found that the stylus can be inserted back into the slot in one correct way, otherwise it gets stuck. Moreover, after [...]
The Galaxy Note 5 is the newest Flagship for Samsung. The phablet category maker that changed everything for Samsung gets an overhaul, it also is a change in the way Samsung thinks design.
Last year the Note 4 was a Samsung first too, when the Phablet saw an Edge variant and a metal framed body construction. Learning heavily from that and the uber-success of the S6 in global markets, the Galaxy Note 5 is an all new metal and glass clad flagship for the company and prospective buyers will be pleased.
Samsung does also bring the flaws of the [...]
