The electronics titans square off in a tangled tale of mobile technology, centered on Apple's iPhone
CNET editors round up their favorite tablets, including products from Apple, Samsung, and Google.
While it doesn't offer much to distinguish itself from other Android tablets, the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is a decent 7-inch tablet at an affordable price.
Not quite a workstation replacement, the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro is an expensive behemoth of a tablet with a vast amount of features that will benefit only the most serious of tablet users.
The premium specs and high-end feel of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 make it well worth the high price.
Except for Galaxy compatibility, the Samsung Level On doesn't offer anything you won't find in other, better on-ear headphones for the same price.
Samsung's new smartwatch feels like its other Gears, but injected with Google's new Android Wear software. The makeover means better Google phone connectedness, but it's not a killer smartwatch.
If you absolutely must have a phone with an optical zoom, the K Zoom is basically your only option. It's bulky though, and the pictures it takes aren't any better than the Galaxy S5's. You'll be far better off with a cheap Android phone and a decent compact digital camera.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 is a smooth-performing midrange slate, but it's overpriced compared to similar tablets.
Though it's only marginally more durable than the original Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S5 Active's physical buttons and high-end features keep it in Samsung's hit parade.
There may be no Android, but Samsung's Z phone running its in-house Tizen operating system looks enough like the Galaxy S5's custom interface to easily get around.
Pricing not available
The AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a quality tablet, but the Nexus 7 offers contract-free 4G LTE support with better performance at a much better price.
