iPhone 5c is regarded by everyone as a great failure of Apple, but reality contradicts the opinions of analysts and ordinary users, because in the U.S. the new device sold better than top Android, BlackBerry or Windows Phone smartphones. As you can see from the chart above, in September iPhone 5c has sold even better than the Samsung Galaxy S4 two major U.S. operators, the remaining high-end smartphones are not mentioned in the top three.
Although in October and November Samsung Galaxy S4 sales exceeded 5c iPhone sales for some operators, the rest smartphone Android, Blackberry or Windows Phone competitors have not been able to attract more attention than him. Despite all the criticism appeared in recent months, it seems that the iPhone 5c to Apple’s more interesting than anything that appeared on the market before it, or after it until December, and this says a lot about how good strategy proved to Apple, despite all the criticism.
Pebble is one of the best smart watches available on the market, being on sale early last year after a session brokered financing by a famous American website. In just one year Pebble sold over 400,000 copies, the company produces more than 60 million, nearly doubling its number of employees. In 2014 the company expects to double the revenues thanks to new Pebble Steel, and the results are quite interesting.
”When we started working on wearables six years ago, there were few players in the space and a lot of skeptics. It’s exciting to see this market grow so quickly — enabling more interesting use cases and keeping all of us laser-focused on creating the very best user experiences we can.”
If in 2013 the SmartWatch market was almost non-existent, evolution and recent Pebble SmartWatch sites launched by various manufacturers of Android terminals helped create a market in continuous expansion. Year 2014 brought a plethora of new devices and given the imminent launch of iWatch produced by Apple, it is clear that there are many billions of dollars that many companies would like to collect, but it remains to be seen who will bring the best devices market.
Good news for all peoples that will be present on MWC 2014 event in Barcelona, because the rumors says that the Galaxy S5 will be unveiled this month in first day of Mobile World Congress event that begins on February 24 by Samsung.
The event isn’t official, but the principal message “UNPACKED 5” of invitation that was send by Samsung suggests an obvious launching of next generation of Galaxy S. Back in 2013, Samsung was chose to make any announcement for Galaxy S4, but in the current year I think that will make a change in this sense.
If you do not know, the new Galaxy S5 device is expected to come with 2K display (2560 x 1440 pixels resolution). The size of the screen will be around 5-inches. The CPU is expected to be clocked at 2.46 GHz, but is the same CPU with 32 bits. If the rumors are confirmed, Samsung Galaxy S5 will have the highest density of pixels per inch of all phones released so far.
About operating system, Galaxy S5 will be available with latest version of Android, KitKat. Is very possible to have a new look of user interface, so a new version of TouchWiz UI that Samsung use it on their smartphones.
The new Galaxy S5 is possible to have a metal body, according to an anonymous source.
Samsung has released Black Edition smartphones Galaxy S4 and S4 Galaxy mini. The main point of interest is the case of artificial leather.
The only changes are visual, so the two handsets are standard specifications. Galaxy S4 has a 5-inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, quad-core processor 1.9 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. The operating system is Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The phone has a 13 megapixel camera on the back and a 2 in front, 2600 mAh battery, 16 GB internal memory and LTE connectivity.
Samsung Galaxy mini Black Edition S4 has 4.3 inch screen with resolution of 540 x 960 pixels.

The fingerprint technology isn’t new in the smartphone world, Apple implementing this technology in last iPhone launched last year.
The latest rumors say that this technology will be available in the next Galaxy S5 smartphone that will be launched by Samsung with this new function. Although it was rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will include an iris scanner, it appears that the implementation of this technology has proven to be too difficult at the moment and would not provide a good user experience for customers.
Differing from the fingerprint reader available on iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy S5 sensor could be implemented directly in the screen, so users will be able to unlock the terminals by pressing on the front of the device. The Samsung also tested various other biometric sensors should provide a superior user experience and iPhones, but it remains to be seen whether this will be done or not.
Every Android user wants to have the latest OS version on their device, but is very possible if you don’t buy a recent smartphone to don’t have ever the latest update running in your phone. This problem exists in all companies that produce mobile phones with Android OS.
