Who are Samsung and what do they do?
Founded in South Korea in March 1938, the Samsung brand has grown into one of the biggest and most well-known in the world. Wherever you go the chances are that you’ll see Samsung products used in daily life with people talking on Samsung smartphones, working on Samsung laptops or unwinding in the evening watching a crystal-clear Samsung Smart TV.
The brand generated an estimated $223.4 billion in 2017 making it one of the world’s most profitable company’s thanks in no small part to their stunning range of smartphones, tablet computers, laptops, smart home devices and televisions.
Their flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy, is widely regarded as the closest competitor in the sector to the Apple iPhone; and the brand continue to go toe-to-tech with the Californians with the Samsung Galaxy Tab and their own smart watch, too, the Samsung Galaxy Watch.
The one sector where they do hold a major advantage over Apple in particular is in televisions, with Samsung TVs among the most popular right around the world.

What is Samsung SmartThings?
Helping you to take control of the devices and systems in your home at the touch of a button, SmartThings is Samsung’s smart home offering which features the beautifully styled Samsung SmartThings Hub, available in the Big Brand Event this year.
The SmartThings Hub is the focal point of the system which “talks” to other devices around the home such as smart security cameras, motion sensors and the new SmartThings button which lets you take control of pre-programmed lighting and heating setups.
Fully compatible with devices including both the Amazon Echo and Google Home smart speaker so you can control systems using your voice, Philips Hue smart light bulbs and the Ring video doorbell; SmartThings lets you control your smart home your way.
Out of this world: Samsung Galaxy tablets and smartphones
The Samsung Galaxy S9 – the latest edition of the brand’s now iconic smartphone – was one of the first to offer the “infinity display” with the screen going right to the edge of the device.
Always a slightly larger model than the iPhone, the Samsung Galaxy was always regarded as the closest competitor for the Apple smartphone but it is now believed to be closing the gap thanks to its stunning design, incredible features and vastly better battery life!
Their tablets aren’t exactly and after-thought, either, as the beautiful Samsung Galaxy Tab is another of the brand’s global success stories. Selling thousands of models the world over, like its smaller sibling the Galaxy S smartphone, the Galaxy Tab is seen as the genuine alternative to the Apple iPad.
