Gear Diary’s Best of CES 2021 Awards

This year’s CES may have been completely virtual and quite different from what we are used to, but it still served as an excellent introduction to the new tech that we can all look forward to in the coming year as we carry on with pandemic life. After going through the avalanche of the products that were introduced at CES, we have culled out the ones that we found most innovative and intriguing. So in alphabetical order, we present you with Gear Diary’s Best of CES 2021 Awards!



Samsung Goes Greener and Offers More Accessibility with New TVs

At Samsung’s (virtual) press conference presentation yesterday, the company announced new products and initiatives that reflect their commitment to innovation. Televisions that are more immersive than ever were on display, as were innovations that can make entertainment more accessible to more people. Here’s a look at some of what they shared.


AT&T Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G Review: Retro Action with Futuristic and Fast Upgrades

If someone had told me that after 2005 I’d be enamored by a flip-phone, I likely would have laughed at them; yet here we are. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip first came out in February, and the 5G version came out just a few months ago. While I think a lot of us were taken aback by the Z Fold 5G’s $1450 price tag and worries about how its folding screen would actually hold up over time, the Z Flip has been out long enough that even if the price understandably gives you pause, you might still be interested in…


Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G: Is this the (An)Droid You Seek?

Last month, during the virtual Samsung Unpacked event, we got a brief teaser along with some new information about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 G5, and now it’s official. If you are someone who likes to have the latest and greatest technology, but you were a wee bit nervous about going with a first-generation Galaxy Fold device, your wait is almost over!


Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra Camera Review: Great Photos, Good Videos, Giant Zoom

Samsung recently announced the Galaxy Note20 Ultra, and it packs a very interesting camera system. It’s similar to what Samsung offered on the Galaxy S20 Ultra earlier this year, but with a few key differences. Since I’ve been using the company’s latest flagship for a few days, I wanted to share my experience shooting photos (primarily) and videos. So what’s new, what’s different? Is it better, is it worse? Let’s dive in.



Sheltering in Place During a Pandemic – How We’ve Made It Work

Due to the global pandemic, those of us who have been unexpectedly thrust into working from home have had to figure out how to get our work done while sheltering in place. We wanted to share some of the things that have helped us stay productive and more-or-less content since we began physically distancing ourselves from our loved ones and friends who live outside of our homes.


Samsung Unveils New Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra Flagship Lineup

Earlier today, we got the sad news that due to concerns over the Corona Virus, Mobile World Congress was canceled. Fortunately, that doesn’t mean we won’t be seeing great new hardware this spring. Samsung led the way at their Unpacked event, announcing the new Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra.


Samsung Brings Their Signature Innovation and Spin to New Television Displays

Samsung is a major player in many areas, but one of the places where they’re consistently pushing the envelope is in televisions and displays. Sometimes what they’re offering isn’t so much for the average person’s living room, but inevitably the tech they show off in their fancier concepts eventually shows up in our living rooms, so it’s worth paying attention to even their wilder ideas!





Samsung Blurs the Lines Between Tablet and PC with the New Galaxy Tab S6!

One of the big debates behind the scenes at Gear Diary is whether a tablet makes more sense than a low-end computer like a Chromebook. The consensus is that sometimes you still need a computer, but there’s a lot of potential benefit to a good tablet. Samsung agrees, and they’re throwing all sorts of features into the Android-powered Galaxy Tab S6!


Samsung Launches Note 10 Reservation Page with $600 Trade-Ins!

It is hard to believe that my Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is nearly a year old already, and it’s still my main daily driver due in large part to the awesome S-Pen. In case it isn’t obvious – I have long since decided I would upgrade to the Note 10 based on the many rumors of enhanced performance, upgraded cameras and AI, and of course the all-new S-Pen features.


Samsung Delays Galaxy Fold

In a move that should surprise absolutely nobody, Samsung today announced that their $2,000 Galaxy Fold phone — which apparently had trouble folding repeatedly without breaking — would be on an indefinite hiatus.



The Samsung Galaxy S10e Is Proof That Size Doesn’t Matter

We have been trained over recent years with phones to equate larger phones as being more premium and providing a better experience. Bigger is better as they say. The Samsung Galaxy S10e is here to blow away your ill-conceived perception and show you why it is one of the best phones to come along in many years.
