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....

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I hang on to my tech goodies for good reason.
