Samsung Galaxy buyers guide
Samsung has just taken the covers off of its latest flagship device — the Samsung Galaxy S4 and recently announced that it has shifted over 100 million Galaxy S devices. But, flagship devices aside, the Samsung Galaxy is a vast and often confusing one.
It's worth knowing a thing or two about Samsung's naming conventions within its Galaxy world before you attempt to make comparisons. For smartphones, S means super-smart, Y is for young, and M means magical. Say what? More importantly, Plus means a mid-term upgrade, the equivalent to how the way Apple puts an S on the end of its autumnal iPhone.
For tablets and the lesser-sized touchscreens that we'll deign to call 'phablets', Tab indicates an entertainment-style device and Note a more serious product; the latter comes with S Pen, Samsung's term for a stylus.
Within are some of the best-selling smartphones on the planet — the Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II – though there are plenty of other gems that fill a niche, or shrink a classic within Samsung's universe of smartphones and tablets.
So read on to find out what is the right Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet for you....
