Galaxy S5: A Dull Dull Phone, But What Would You Have Liked Samsung to Launch?

Judging by the mood in the Giz comments and on Twitter, everyone's pretty underwhelmed by the Samsung Galaxy S5. A fingerprint sensor was hardly worth sitting up for when Apple added it to the iPhone 5S, but given Samsung's made a real name for itself with hundreds of (often very innovative) features in its Galaxy line-up, the full roll-call of tonight's specs has seen spectators gagging for more. But for what, exactly? Read More >>

Samsung Galaxy S5 Has a Fingerprint-Scanner Just Like the iPhone 5S

Samsung's latest flagship, the Galaxy S5, was unveiled in Barcelona at MWC tonight in a larger 5.1-inch Super Amoled screen size, but very familiar package -- like Apple with the iPhone 5S, the hardware is almost identical to the Galaxy S4, except for a new matte dimpled back. The biggest change sits on the front, with a fingerprint sensor on the home button acting as an extra layer of security, even authorising PayPal payments within the browser. Read More >>

HTC Desire 816 Supersizes the One's Design, With Mid-Range Pricing

As HTC very kindly put us out of our curiosity by sending out March 25th invitations for its 2014 flagship unveil, we knew its MWC announcements wouldn't be packing the big punches. But given the company's pinning its hopes on shifting volume via mid-range products this year, the Desire 816 is a decent attempt with its six colour options and obvious One flagship-stylings.
