  • The Galaxy S IV isn’t even out yet, but it’s rooted

    For those lucky enough to own a Galaxy S IV, which would be practically no-one as the phone is only up for preorder, you’ll be happy to know that Samsung’s mammoth phone can now be rooted. XDA-developers.com has released a rooted ROM and instructions for hacking the S IV and, as per usual, any modifications done to your phone are down at your own risk.

The announcement was further cemented by Eldar Murtazin, editor-in-chief for Mobile-review (one of Russia, and perhaps the world’s largest and most reliable mobile phone sites). Save the date for a big announcement - March 14 :) And keep silence ;) HTC will miss HTC One sales again :( Like it was in 2012. — Eldar Murtazin (@eldarmurtazin) February 18,...

  • Hot rumour of the day: Galaxy S IV launch planned for 15 March

    Alright everyone, please take this story with a pinch of salt, as it comes from a Sammobile tech writer who hasn't got a source to back up his claims. So here goes: The site claims that Samsung will launch the Galaxy S IV on 15 March and that it will be available for purchase as soon as April this year. And now, time for some stats that may or may not be real. It’s only a render, don’t get too excited. Seems too good to be true The S IV is going to have both an 8 (octo) core CPU and...
