Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 is excellent overall, and the only phone to buy if you want to write by hand. However, you'll pay a huge premium for a modest upgrade from last year's model, and less pricey competitors will satisfy many.
The electronics titans square off in a tangled tale of mobile technology, centered on Apple's iPhone and iPad, that delves into where one company's designs end and another's begin.
Subtly improved and smartly refined, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is a superior superphone that hits every mark but the sharpest design.
The Samsung LTE Mobile HotSpot Pro's superfast 4G LTE speed and exceptionally long battery life make it a great buy on its own, but its juice pack feature sweetens the deal that much more.
Available direct from T-Mobile.
The Samsung Wireless is the best mobile device for media streaming and data backup, but only Android users need apply.
Its laundry list of features require time and effort to truly master, but the Galaxy S4 is the top choice for anyone looking for a big-screen, do-everything smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE is a good Android choice, but for the same price, the LG Viper gives you greater camera power.
The Verizon Wireless Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot 890L is one of the best choices for travelers who can afford Verizon's limited and expensive data plans.
Outside of its relatively high cost of ownership and average point-and-shoot picture quality, the Samsung Galaxy Camera definitely delivers the shoot-and-share experience of a smartphone with the features of a compact camera.
Business travelers will find the Verizon Jetpack MiFi 4620L an excellent companion thanks to its fast connection, nice set of features, and long-lasting battery. Its expensive and limited data plans, however, might steer casual users away.
Those looking for a QWERTY smartphone will gravitate to the thick and hearty Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G, which has Android 4.0, strong hardware specs, and excellent call quality.
