It is in fact the first most popular Android smartphone retailer in the world by number of units sold. The company’s Samsung Galaxy S3 was the first phone that gave the iPhone a real competition. Hence, effectively making the Galaxy brand, a brand to be reckoned with.

Another line of products that Samsung has made popular is the ‘phablet’ by introducing the Samsung Galaxy Note. A phablet is a cross between a phone and a tablet; it sized as a table but with all the properties of a phone. Samsung’s latest product in this category is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. While, officially the Note 8 is considered a tablet, it does come with the optional SIM slot, thus allowing it calling and 3G capabilities.

The Galaxy Note II featured a 5.55 inch screen, while the Galaxy Note 10.1, as the name suggests a 10.1 inch screen. There just wasn’t an option in between unless one considered the Galaxy Tab series, which of course did not come with the S-pen stylus.

The Nexus devices in general have an advantage over other devices in that the Android in the Nexus devices is pure. I.e. the Android does not have any manufacturer or wireless carrier modifications to it, such as a custom graphical user interface. The Android also has an unlockable bootloader to allow further development and end-user modification, all of which is usually blocked on other Android smartphones.

The tablet also features a quick settings menu, allows for application of widgets on the lock screen, as well as gesture typing; an updated version of Google Now; and multiple user accounts for tablets. The tablet offers a new share and customize feature that allows multiple users to create their own profile and customize it according to their own needs.
