Samsung 2016 4K Midrange TV is a great bargain, if you get a good one

It’s really hard to walk into the TV store nowadays and stare at the row of impossibly then sets and not stop on a Samsung 4K TV. Whether really big or somewhat big or even curved, the Samsung TVs are stunning (especially when set on the brightest mode possible for the store environment, eschewing any need for color accuracy).

We got our hands on a 2016 version 65 inch KS8000 model recently and were very, very impressed. Understand, we’ve been watching a Panasonic 2009 Viera 50-inch plasma that’s been calibrated by a famous Florida calibrator named Louis Carliner. He spent two days, literally, making the set look good.

Back then the plasmas had a hard time doing purple. When Louis was done, our TV did purple. It still does. And it does deep blacks, something these back-lit LCD/LED TVs don’t do as well.

The Samsung, however, delivers a wonderful picture, just so much more sharp than the old HDTVs. If you haven’t seen a 4K TV in your home, you can’t appreciate the clarity. Given a good source, like a 4K DVD, the results are simply amazing. The clarity of the opening sequence in the latest X-Men movie is just stunning. It’s so clear we could make out the obvious CGI we missed when we saw the Tobey McGuire Spider-Man movies in the theaters. Man, it’s so obvious. How did we miss it?

On everyday material — Apple TV, FireStick, DirecTV — the Samsung didn’t do a super great job of upscaling the material — meaning it didn’t make us miss the Panasonic as much — but it looks decent enough and after you play with the color controls enough, you can get a somewhat less color-saturated picture. But we’re nitpicking.

The only problem we had with this TV was a rather big one. The TV doesn’t have many attachments directly into the set itself. You’ll plug what the company calls a “One Connect” cable into the back of the TV and the other end of the four-foot cable contains all of your HDMI connections. It’s a neat idea and, in a sense, could future proof  your purchase somewhat.

But the “One Connect” cable didn’t work for us. Source material would blink incessantly while watching it. The 4K DVD player worked exactly once (remember that X-Men scene?) and that was for five minutes. We got a new “One Connect” box and the problems didn’t go away, which led us to believe it may’ve been the display itself.

So the bottom line is this: the KS8000 is a very good TV, and it’s selling now as low as $1,300. We’ve read about some issues with the “One Connect,” but we don’t believe it’s a big enough deal to avoid the TV. And if you’ve not seen 4K, get this and prepare to have your mind blown.

Samsung 4K player delivers the goods to high-def TVs

After spending a few months with a Samsung 4K disc player I have come to the conclusion that blu-ray is no longer enough.
There, I said it. Yes, folks, watching 4K movies is a much more immersive experience than watching my favorite films on Blu-ray. No there isn’t a lot of content, but what’s out there is enough to say it’s time for an upgrade.
The player is the Samsung UBD-K85009, the first to be offered in the United States. It’s debatable whether it’s actually the first 4K player, however. Panasonic sold a unit in Japan last year which was far more expensive but wasn’t available anywhere else. The Samsung unit has been selling throughout the world since late March or early April.


The UBD-K8500 comes with a remote, batteries for the remote and an instruction booklet. I have to say I liked the way it was packed in the box. I kept the box just in case I move. The set up is fairly easy. It has Samsung’s Smart Hub so it must connected to an wi-fi network in order to use those functions.

Samsung 4K Blu-ray player

The unit does not have analog connections so you have to supply your own HDMI and toslink cord. As well as the new 4K discs, the unit plays Blue-ray, 3-d Blu-ray, DVD, CD and CD-R. It decodes stereo, Dolby DTS, TrueHD, Master DTS sound formats. It will also play Dolby ATMOS encoded discs if you have a receiver that can be switched to bitstream and has that program.
The best feature of the unit is HDR, or High Dynamic Range. All those new pixels on your 4K TV screen (3840 x 2860) are great, but it’s what can be done with them that is more interesting. HDR allows those pixels to expand the color range. Reds pop, blues sooth and the detail and varying range of color is astonishing. New life is breathed into the depth and spectrum of how color can be displayed.
Let me make this point. All 4K TVs, especially those in the early stages of 4K (also known as Ultra High Definition) were made with HDR. These units can upscale things to near 4K quality but can’t display the complete color range without HDR. Sometimes they are referred to as “super high def.” Check for HDR on the brand you have.
My Samsung UHD40-6700 TV doesn’t have HDR, but it was built with some of the hardware so the UBD-K8500 will upscale it to just short of true 4K. The TV also upscales as well. I didn’t think I would be able to tell the difference between Blu-ray and 4K, but, boy, was I was I wrong. I watched the Ultra High Def version of “Star Trek: Into The Darkness” and was blown away. The opening scenes with Captain Kirk and Bones running through a red forest with stark white aliens dressed in yellow running after them was simply amazing. The difference between the 4K and Blu-ray (included with the 4K disc) was jaw-dropping. There is a later scene where Bones and a scientist are on a planet trying to disarm a torpedo that will simply make you shake your head. It’s that lifelike.
The rest of the movie benefited from deeper blacks and crisper images. I wanted to see how the player did on something that wasn’t action oriented so I watched Will Smith’s “Concussion.” The picture was crisp and life-like, which I think enhanced Smith’s Oscar-worthy performance. Great movie.
“Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” also benefited. The 4K ultimate version wasn’t nearly as dark and grainy as it appeared in theaters. Wonder Woman’s costume looked brighter and Superman’s under roo was more vivid. (The added extra 30 minutes answered nearly every question there was about this film which was also good).
There is not a plethora of material to watch or buy, but what is out there is growing by the month. Don’t look for Marvel or other Disney titles because parent company Disney isn’t releasing anything on 4K yet. That’s a dumb move considering just about every movie is shot in 4K and HDR. Paramount, Warner Bros. and Sony has, as well as other studios.
The Samsung player is a good investment if you are spending a lot on your TV. Yes, you can stream 4K from Netflix, YouTube and a few other places (which this unit also does), but that is a compressed signal. A 4K disc doesn’t have internet constraints so you’re getting the Full Monty.
The Samsung UBD-K8500 was originally priced at $499.99, but hit stores at $399.99. You can now find it as little as $319.99.
Samsung isn’t along anymore. Panasonic is releasing a $700 player that will also play high-res music files. Philips will also have a 4K player in the $400 range. Microsoft’s X-Box update will play 4K and so will Sony’s Playstation 4.5. Curiously, that will be the first Sony anything that will play 4K-Blu-ray.
You can wait to see how the 4K things shake out. There are competing versions of HDR (I think the Samsung plays both) but I don’t see a loser. One version may become more popular but the end results are the same. Why wait. If you have splurged on a big-panel 4K TV you need to push it’s limits. I don’t see 4K discs going the way of 3-D. You don’t need special glasses, just a pair of eyes that can’t wait to be thrilled. I think the UBD-K8500 is the perfect place to start.


More online shopping consumers using smartphones than personal computers study shows

Blu Vivo Air apes Apple style, offers Android performance

IMG_0049Apple, Samsung and a few other manufacturers seem to have the cell phone game locked down. Yet, there are a handful of companies that have challenged all of the high-priced, must-have phones with low-cost phones which do the same for less.
Ok, maybe not exactly the same, but close. Isn’t the main function of a phone to make a call? Yes, but more people are relying on their phones to replace laptops and tablets. Some are as large as tablets.
If you don’t care about the best specs or being tied to a specific network. There are some options. There are bunches of unlocked phones to be had with good to excellent performance and darn near cut rate prices.
One option is Blu, a Miami-based company that started in 2009. That year, the company sold some 70,000 units. Four years later it was up to 4.1 million in 2012. The company’s sales have continued to rise offering Android phones for nearly half what the big guns sell phone. Now it’s gotten into Windows, seemingly dying platform but Microsoft is selling Blu Phones in its stores.
Blu doesn’t do Apple’s operating system, but it sure can copy an iPhone. It’s new Vivo Air is a could pass for an iPhone 6, better so than the Samsung Galaxy S6 clone.
Blu bests both the S6 and iPhone 6 by making it thinner. Yep, the Vivo Air is 5mm thick, making it the thinnest phone currently sold in the US (according to Blu). Will it bend? Sure, if you put it in a machine to do so or carry it without a case.
I’m not so sure I’m with this “i’m thinner than you” war, however. These are phones, not supermodels.
Anyway, the Air has a 4.8 Super HD ambled screen. It has an eight core, 1.7 GHz processor as well.
The phone will run on 4G HSPA+ networks. It has 1 gig of Ram and uses the 4.4 Kit Kat operating system.
The camera is 8.0 megapixels on the back and 5.0 mp up front. Lots of selfies to be had. You can also record video in 1080p @ 30 frames per second.
The phone comes boxed with a wall charger, usb cable ,earphones, screen protector, gel case and another cable (don’t know what it’s for nor could I find it in the manual).
I didn’t spend a lot of time with the Blu Air but the time I did was well spent. The phone feels good to the touch, forged from a single piece of aluminum. The white and gold color scheme used is very Apple’ish. So is the fact the phone is sealed, so no SD card use. Currently, the phone is only available with16 gigs of memory.
I made a few phone calls, hooked up to Wi-fi and snapped a couple of pictures. Everything was great. Pictures looked as good as my iPhone 5. The screen was much better. I watched the Arrow/Flash Fight Club video on YouTube and that 4.8-inch screen came to life. The depth and width of the colors was wonderful. Didn’t notice any lag, either.
I’m still gunning for an iPhone 6 or 6 plus (yes, I’ve succumbed to the large phone thing), but my carrier wants everyone to pay full price for phones these days. The Vivo Air almost convinced me to go Android, if for nothing more than its excellent price of $299. You can find even cheaper on line.
Notice I said almost. I’m still an Apple head but I can give credit. The Android system has become more uniform on each phone – you get the same experience regardless of phone used. That wasn’t a few years back. If I buy my phone on price next time and I can’t get my Apple, I’d consider Blu.

Best Android smartphone you can buy? Sorry Samsung, it’s HTC M8

HTC's M8 One Smartphone
HTC’s M8 One smartphone

The folks at Verizon were nice enough to send us the latest HTC smartphone for review and the M8 doesn’t disappoint. In fact, we find it to be the best Android smartphone your money can buy.

The phone was launched last spring as the successor the HTC One, which was the best selling smartphone in the company’s history.  It combined gorgeous good looks with quality build design and the new version picks up where the original left off.

Aesthetically, you won’t find a better-looking phone. It is a touch slippery but has a nice aluminum body and rounded back. It’s pretty. It feels good in the hand and the 5-inch display is bright, clear and, frankly, breathtaking. It’s among the best in class.IMG_0623

Battery life? Pretty good. Putting the phone through its paces, pretty hard, we were consistently able to get 7-8 hours of use. We love the ability to use the phone’s radio frequency chip to use as a remote control for your home theater, and the set-up screen is simple to use and something that dedicated universal remote makers should take a long look at.

The phone has a very fast  processor that can handle everything you throw at it, graphic intensive games or multi-tasking and those games look great on this screen. Verizon also has a cool NFL app that allows you to watch NFL Network or even live games (for a fee, of course).

HTC M8 beside iPhone 6 Plus
HTC M8 beside iPhone 6 Plus

Taking the NFL with you is kind of neat, although it may run up your data bill quite a bit if you’re not on WiFi, but Verizon’s network delivered stutter free Peyton Manning and we were able to watch the game while in the grocery, at the mall and visiting a friend. Honey-do Sundays take on new meaning with a phone like this.

We tested the Android version of this phone, but Windows fans can pick up a version that will display those live tiles very, very well.

This phone has a lot of cool stuff built in. Let’s see:

1. You can answer a phone call by just raising phone to your ear.

2. You can activate the screen with a swipe downward.

3. The sound from this thing is better than any other phone we’ve ever tested. The front-facing speakers at the top and bottom of the phone will have you skipping those speaker add-on thingies at the local Wal-Mart.

4. The camera is really good. It’s got dual flash and really good auto-focus, so even Captain Shaky Hands can get a good shot almost every time. Ditto the video camera.

Call quality on Verizon’s network where we tested it — in our home base of beautiful Charlotte and on a field trip to Tennessee — was solid and voice calls were clear.

There’s just not much to dislike.

If you’re an Android or Windows type of phone lover, this is definitely one you should look at. For us, it’s the best Android smartphone money can buy.

The folks at Verizon also sent five cases to help promote Verizon’s NFL partnership. We’ve got five Otterbox defenders: two iPhone 5/5C cases. One is adorned with a Dolphins logo. The other with the Panthers.

We’ve also got three Samsung Galaxy S5 cases: two with Panthers logos and one with the Patriots.

We’re giving away all five. Send an email to with your case preference and we’ll randomly select a winner.

4K HD is here. Do you want it? Do you care?

Like your 1080p television? Good, It’s obsolete and it’s not 3D, it’s 4K HD that’s the culprit.

Yes, as I write, the first sets are available on line and at select retailers. It has a resolution four times that of 1080p sets, or so says the folks who make them. It’s hard to really tell because there is not much content available to watch. Heck, there’s nothing that’s broadcast in 1080p, much less 4K HD.

Sony 84-inch 4K HD TV
Sony 84-inch 4K HD TV XBR-84X9oo

Sony seems to be the first up, promoting  55, 65, and 84-inch screens. Pick the 84-inch screen it has the ability to upscale even low-resolution media to near high-res content. It also has an LED backlit screen controlled by an Xperia Tablet S. No, you cannot download an app to another tablet or a smartphone to control your TV. The included tablet is your only remote. The software works specifically with that remote.

How much? $24,999.99.

The 55-inch runs $4,999, while the 65-inch will set you back $6,999.

Sooo, to get this better picture you will need to upgrade almost everything you own. A 4K movie will fit on a Blu-ray disc but the whole media may change, according to a Sony representative. Even if the content is delivered by Blu-ray, you will need to upgrade your player. If you own a Playstation 3, all you may need is a download which is usually free. That depends if the Playstation’s hardware will allow this upgrade.

Sony also offers receivers and pre-packaged audio systems to handle 4K. There will also be a streaming network with 4K content available.

LG, Toshiba and Samsung will be shipping product soon, but Sony’s lead may be what that company needs to reignite the public’s interest in Sony product.

Or this could be another bust like 3D. Those sets never took off. Buyers have scoffed at the cost of glasses and movies. 4K actually improves picture quality so this may be Sony’s ticket.

Here are the bigger questions: does the public need or even want this tech? Will the public care about this tech?

There a plenty of people who have taken the Hi-Def plunge but have settled for 720p (which is cheaper) over 1080p sets which are now readily available. This 4K is said to be stunning in definition, but a new set, media player and audio system may not be what consumers want to deal with coming out of a recession.

Or maybe it is. There’s a big group of folk itching to buy something. Will 4K HD be that something? We’ll keep you posted.

In a world of super-big Android phones, Motorola Droid Razr M finds a niche

The beautiful thing about the Android smartphone market is that customers have a choice. If you want a 5.5-inch Samsung behemoth or a 4.8-inch Samsung behemoth, well, there’s an Android for you.

Want a phone that feels — and let’s just say it — iPhone 5 sized? Well the Motorola Droid Razr M is for you. It’s 4.3 inches long, a little longer than the new Apple phone. It feels light enough and durable enough and features an edge-to-edge screen. It’s also running the super strong — at least for us — Verizon LTE network.

Is that a winning combination?

Mostly, yes.

We’ve never been big fans of the Super big phones, so the size here feels familiar, from back when you could easily hold a phone in one hand and touch all portions of the screen. And this is one of the best-looking phones out there. It’s 8.3 millimeters thick. It’s thicker than the new iPhone 5 but not by much, and the rounded edges make it a little more comfortable to hold.

People get about as fussy about their phone’s operating system as they do the hardware. We like Android and this rocks Android 4.0. It’s smooth, polished and does about everything you could possibly want to do. The learning curve is steeper than on Apple’s iOS or on Windows but Motorola smartly didn’t overlay the software here with a heavy dose of its own MotoBlur software. And one thing we liked is that if you swipe from left to right on the home screen, you get a “Quick Settings” screen where you adjust ringtones, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, etc.

You don’t have to press the home button and go into the Menu.

Stuff like that make this phone easy to use.

The screen isn’t as good as the Samsung or the Apple and it displays white as a tad yellow but it’s more than sharp enough to get the job done. Unless you’re holding the phones with the better screens beside it and constantly going back and forth to notice the difference — and who does that? — this screen is going to be fine.

We’d seen some reviews that took the camera to task, but for our uses, the camera was fine. Again, there are better cameras on smartphones, but the photos you take with this aren’t going to make you frown.

All in all, this is a very nice package if what you want is a smart-sized Android phone that fits comfortably in your hand. Good news, again, in Android land, is that you have choices.

Is the Apple “Era” Over?

In today’s USA Today, columnist Michael Wolff takes a detached look at the fortunes of Apple. We offer our own look, if a bit sarcastic one, here.

Wolff notes that what he calls the “Age of Apple” began just seven years ago when its stock price was $35. And like many pundits he notes a $700 high point and a dip to what is $542.83 as of this writing. It dropped 4.23 percent Monday.

Wolff posits that all of Apple’s products are no longer dominant in the market, not even iTunes, and without a dominant, commanding position, Apple is vulnerable and made even moreso by missteps in software (see Maps) and shakeups in management.

Its phone market, tablet market and content-selling business — iTunes — until recently practical monopolies, have become, as if overnight, hugely competitive fields. Management, in this strictly top-down company, is suddenly in dramatic flux. And, with its great map app debacle, Apple’s customers are starting to rise up against its famous closed-system policies.

Wolff goes on to say he thinks Apple’s time is up. He worries about how new CEO is copying Steve Jobs black-shirt-on-blue-jeans trademark look for product introductions (left field no?) — and how having gone up so fast, Apple has nowhere to go but, you know:

And yet, befitting a company whose real genius is design (i.e. illusion), there is something ephemeral about its position. It has not so much created monopolies — the secret of generational success — as opened new markets for everyone. These markets — smartphones, tablets, digital content distribution — have become the dominant ones in the technology business. There’s no place else for a big player to go. And in the case of phones and tablets, all you have, in the end, are fairly basic machines. It’s a game of price and features and shrinking margin.

The smartphone market — until recently split between an ever-growing iPhone dominance, a stalwart BlackBerry and a divided Android field — is now, increasingly, an iPhone vs. Samsung world. The difference between one dominant player and a collection of would-be players and two clear alternatives is a vast one. Samsung’s consumer electronics marketing clout — and its breathtaking advertising budget — is even large enough to go toe-to-toe with Apple’s brand mythology and ubiquity.

It is true that the latest stats show iPhone sales down and Samsung rising from 6.5 percent of the tablet market just around Christmas 2011 to 18.4 percent last quarter, but we think it’s important to remember that it was no secret to anyone with a Google search engine that Apple was going to be releasing a new iPad and iPhone soon. We have to think more than a few people decided to keep that credit card in the wallet until after September.

The true story on Apple’s demise — or lack of it — won’t be told until the next sales quarter’s numbers come out. Or even the one after that.

If a Samsung is still the world’s most popular smartphone, fighting off a challenge from a hot new iPhone 5, and Samsung’s tablet sales are still rising against two new versions of iPad, well, it may be time to get old Monday Night Football host “Dandy” Don Meredith to start cue-ing up “Turn out the lights, the party’s over.”

Or maybe not.

Apple has a huge vault of cash on hand, no debt, and an army of devoted followers. Sales of Apple products, by the way, aren’t bad. Apple needs to improve its mobile operating system a little, the simple tile buttons are getting old, especially when compared against, say, Window’s new system which gives information on the fly, but what we’re seeing now is customers getting choices. A few more options on iPhone wouldn’t be bad. Why not an iPhone XL? The iPad Mini price point needs to drop under $300.

But let’s be honest, companies were not just going to sit back and let Apple make boatloads of cash by selling glass phones and tablets. After some early misses — which shows how far ahead Apple really was — companies like Google, Amazon and Microsoft are putting out phones and tablets that are just as good and perhaps better than iPhones and iPads. It’ll be hard for Apple to keep its market lead when its not fighting, say, Google or Amazon on selection or price.

You can get 2-for-1 Android phones and one cent Android phones and Android phones in all different shapes and sizes, for example. And more than anything, we believe the majority of consumers are moved by price. Apple, by and large, just costs more.

Apple may feel the need to compete on price a little bit more in the future, but we don’t think “the Age of Apple” has come anywhere to ending. The age of $700 stock prices? Maybe.

But Wolff seems more certain.

The age of Apple should, reasonably, be a fleeting one. And this, in its way, is good news. Innovation happens in the technology business and new markets open when the mighty fall — often not until the mighty fall.

A short run on top is long enough.

Samsung expects to sell 30 million Galaxy SIII smartphones

We’ve already told you that the Samsung Galaxy SIII is the best Android smartphone ever made, and one of the best ever period.

Apparently, many of you agree.

Samsung said Tuesday that it expects to sell 30 million Samsung Galaxy SIII devices before year’s end.

Raymond James analyst Tavis McCourt says Apple took in 77.1% of second-quarter smartphone profits. He said Samsung accounted for 29% in quarter 2.

Samsung plans to sell many more apparently. It confirmed it had sold more than 20 million Galaxy SIII phones in the first 100 days.

“The Galaxy S3 is expected to sell more than 30 million units within this year,” Samsung’s IT and mobile unit boss Shin Jong-kyun said while speaking to South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.

Samsung released the Galaxy S III last May.
