Geared Up: Switching from iPhone to Note 10; iPhone 11 Pro is Coming…

Samsung Galaxy Note 10

On this week's Geared Up, I go over my Samsung Galaxy Note 10 review impressions after spending a week with the device. I also talk with Todd Bishop about wanting to switch away from the iPhone after 10 years to give Samsung's new flagship Galaxy Note 10+ a shot. Which features are luring him away from iOS and towards Samsung and Android? We also talk about the latest iPhone 11 & iPhone Pro rumors and what to expect from Apple's next smartphone release, scheduled to be announced on September 10th!

Samsung Onyx: A premium 4K HDR movie theater experience

Samsung Onyx Cinema Screen

Earlier this week, Samsung invited me to spend a day in Vegas to attend CinemaCon, where the company was announcing it’s line of Samsung Onyx 4K LED movie theater displays. CinemaCon is the largest gathering of movie theater owners in the world, where seemingly anyone who’s anyone in the movie industry can be found, making this the perfect place to show off trailers and extended previews of upcoming movies, as well as movie theater tech. This made CinemaCon the perfect place for Samsung to debut the Onyx.

Formerly known as Samsung LED Cinema Displays, the easiest way to describe the rebranded Samsung Onyx is to liken it to the high-end flagship 4K HDR displays that you can buy for your home, but on a much grander scale. What this means is you get a crisp 4K picture, you get the insane dynamic range from the HDR luminance, and you get the high contrast thanks to the True Black capabilities.

Unboxing Live 196: Samsung Galaxy S7 Active

If you’ve been wanting to pick up the Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 edge, but were worried about carrying around a phone that’s covered on the front and back by glass and how easy it might be to shatter, then you’re gonna wanna pay attention to this episode, as I’ll be giving you a look at the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active - a no-compromises version of the Galaxy S7 that you’ll have a hell of hard time trying to destroy.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 line is the latest flagship series from Samsung. In my opinion, they’re the best-looking phones that Samsung has ever made…but they’re also the most fragile and slippery due to being encased in curved glass. Each year though, Samsung and AT&T collaborate on a much more rugged version of the Galaxy S smartphone - the Active line. This is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active.

You can get the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active now.
