Don’t walk with the Samsung LevelOn premium stereo headphones

But here is my review of the device.

I got the white version and while I would have preferred the black one (for personal reasons), I adore the beauty of this headset with the gold edges. The ear pads were very comfortable and also aided in keeping the noise out and the sound in. Somehow, I feel they could have done better with the size because it felt too big at some point and that discouraged me from putting it on my neck for too long when I was not using it.

I value premium sound so I do not scrounge when I have to buy earpieces and headsets; I splurge. Needless to say, I have used more than a few from Bose to Sony and even Sennheiser, Bang & Olufsen and Dr Dre Beats. Of all of them, this can compare with just a few of the wide range. The noise cancellation is simply amazing and the delivery of sound, especially bass, is nothing short of awesome.

I first used it in a quiet environment and enjoyed it, but I took a walk at the height of the day and traffic on Lagos roads was simply muted out. No horns or hustle and bustle sounds leaked through. I did this a few times and each time, I felt like every other road user ceased to exist. Very risky something. Do not try this at home. If you are walking, I would suggest not using this at a loud volume so that you aware of your environment.

The controller on the cable lets one adjust volume, skip through music tracks and take calls too. And it supports S-Voice, though I didn’t get to try that. I don’t have a Samsung smartphone, but Mister Mobility will be taking care of that angle. Samsung LevelOn premium stereo headphones

Samsung Phones Escape From Apple Ban

The decision on Wednesday was seen as a setback for Apple in its long-running battle with Samsung over features built into Android-powered mobile devices that compete worldwide with iPhones and iPads.

The latest round in the ongoing Apple v Samsung legal saga has seen Cupertino fail to get a ban on a number of Samsung Galaxy devices.

A judge has rejected a bid by Apple to ban US sales of rival Samsung smartphones targeted in a recent $2 billion patent trial in Silicon Valley.

The California-based Apple requested an injunction on offending Samsung mobile devices — which were from the flagship Galaxy line — after a patent trial that ended with a mixed verdict in May.

Jurors awarded $119.6 million in damages to Apple.

While the amount of the award is huge, it is only a fraction of the more than $2 billion that Apple had sought at the outset of the case.

“Apple’s cited evidence indicates that Samsung paid close attention to, and tried to incorporate, certain iPhone features,” US District Court Judge Lucy Koh said in a written ruling denying an injunction.

“While indicative of copying by Samsung, this evidence alone does not establish that the infringing features drove customer demand for Samsung’s smartphones and tablets.

“Apple has not established that it suffered significant harm in the form of either lost sales or reputational injury,” Koh said in her latest ruling.

“Moreover, Apple has not shown that it suffered any of these alleged harms because Samsung infringed Apple’s patents.”

Patents at issue in the case involve unlocking touchscreens with slide gestures, automatically correcting words being typed, retrieving data sought by users, and performing actions on found data, such as making a call after coming up with a phone number.

Samsung devices targeted by Apple included more than half a dozen smartphones from the Galaxy line, along with the Galaxy 2 tablet.

Jurors agreed that Samsung violated three of five Apple patents at issue in the two-month-long trial.

Jurors also found that Apple violated a Samsung patent, and said that Apple should pay its rival $158,400 in damages.
Both companies have been locked in a three-year battle of litigation attrition in close to a dozen countries, with each accusing the other of infringing on various patents related to their flagship smartphone and tablet products.

In August 2012, a separate jury in the same court decided that Samsung should pay Apple $1.049 billion in damages for illegally copying iPhone and iPad features, in one of the biggest patent cases in decades.

The damage award was later trimmed to $929 million and is being appealed.

Samsung and Apple decided earlier this month to drop all patent disputes outside the US.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Gets Andriod 4.4.4 KitKat

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 may no longer be the latest Samsung phablet, but that certainly doesn’t mean that it won’t be enjoying the latest Android updates from the manufacturer, as US carrier Sprint has released the latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat today.

Oddly, there’s no word of the non-carrier vanilla flavor of the Note 3 getting the same 4.4.4 update yet, so it appears that the Sprint-branded Note 3 will be beating the other iterations to the punch.

Here’s a screenshot from the company’s webpage that details the update changelog.

As always, OTA updates have gradual release cycles, so it make take a while to see the update on your Sprint Galaxy Note 3. Of course, you can always check your phones’ about screen manually as well.

We’ll keep you posted as soon as the Android 4.4.4 update arrives on other  Samsung Galaxy Note 3  versions.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to Be Launch On Wednesday

While Samsung is all set to launch the Galaxy Note 4 on Wednesday, September 3, the purported pricing of the phablet has been revealed by a European electronics retailer, Media Markt.

According to a report by a Russian website, a representative of retailer Media Markt has tipped that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be priced at RUB 34,990 (approximately Rs. 56,700) for the Russian market, and will go on sale in late September or early October. The report notes that the new phablet’s pricing is the same as it was for the Galaxy Note 3 (Review | Pictures) last year, whereas the Galaxy S5 (Review | Pictures) was priced at RUB 29,990.

On Saturday, a device with model number SM-N910T thought to be the anticipated Galaxy Note 4 was spotted in a User Agent profile on the company’s mobile site along with display resolution and a hint of a 64-bit SoC.

The User Agent (UA) profile listing showed that the alleged ‘SM-N910T’ Galaxy Note 4 features a Quad-HD (1440×2560 pixels) display. It also speculated that the processor powering the smartphone is 64-bit, based on other details in the UA profile.

Earlier, the anticipated Galaxy Note 4 was listed in two variants – SM-N910S and SM-N910C, depending on region – by an Indonesian online retailer. The listing had also included mention of a Quad-HD (1440×2560 pixels) Super AMOLED display offering a pixel density of 515ppi on a 5.7-inch screen; 4GB of RAM; 16GB/ 32GB/ 64GB inbuilt storage variants; expandable storage up to 128GB (via microSD card); Micro-SIM support; 16-megapixel camera with OIS, and Android 4.4.3 KitKat.

The Indonesian Galaxy Note 4 retail listing mentions a 2.5GHz quad-core processor (possibly the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805) variant and an octa-core (Exynos with 1.3GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 and four quad-core Cortex-A57 cores) variant. The website had listed the smartphone for IDR 9,499,000, which translates to roughly Rs. 50,000
