This week started off kind of on the quiet side, but if there's one company that will never let quiet stand, it's Samsung. So they mixed things up with the announcement of the latest in their popular big-screened stylus-toting Note series, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. It's an impressive device on its own, but Samsung somehow felt it wasn't enough and also gave us the Galaxy S6 edge+, a bigger version of their interesting, if expensive, Galaxy S6 edge.

Of course, Samsung wasn't the only thing going on. BlackBerry CEO John Chen articulated details on the next step in BlackBerry's turnaround strategy (while we saw more leaks of their rumored Android-powered slider smartphone). iMore showed you just how to sell your old iPhone as we ramp up to the new iPhone 6s, and is giving away an iPhone 6s on Twitter. In Windows land the Windows 10 party continues with a complete guide to customization and the release of the latest Windows 10 Mobile preview.
