Samsung will finally let you disable the Bixby button without a third-party app

Samsung launched Bixby on the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus earlier this year, but the presence of a physical button on the phone for Bixby has rubbed some users the wrong way. There have been a few methods to block or redirect the Bixby button to other apps, but Samsung has insisted that the Bixby button is for Bixby. In a new update, you can finally disable the button, but you can't point it to another app.

You can already buy a dual-SIM Note8 on eBay for $899.99

Samsung has a history of releasing Dual-SIM variants of their devices, and the Galaxy Note8 is no exception. Since the phone is so new, availability of the Dual-SIM is limited, and it doesn't seem to be on sale at all in the United States. But if you want one, you can buy one on eBay for a penny shy of $900.

Samsung updates Verizon Galaxy S5 (launched in 2014) with August 2017 security patch

We like to make fun of Samsung (and most other OEMs) for being slow to roll out new versions of Android. It's true that Google puts everyone else to shame when it comes to big updates, but Samsung has been doing much better when it comes to security updates. Case in point: the Galaxy S5 on Verizon just got a security patch more than three years after it first launched in April of 2014.

Samsung might be ready to launch its foldable Galaxy Note next year

Foldable smartphones with bendy screens have seemingly been on the horizon for some time. It's seen by some as the next great innovation in the industry, essentially giving you a tablet sized screen in a device with the footprint of a phone. While we've seen numerous concepts and heard many proclamations, nothing concrete has surfaced just yet. But that doesn't stop companies like Samsung from talking about it. In the latest comments to come from the Korean firm, Koh Dong-jin, president of mobile business, says the first flexible device could be ready in 2018.

[Update: Google Pixels and LG V30 too] YouTube is rolling out HDR playback option for Galaxy S8/S8+, Note8, and XZ Premium users

High Dynamic Range (HDR) has seemingly been the next big thing in video playback for quite some time, but most people have yet to experience outside of taking photos. It relates not to the resolution of a video, but to the amount of contrast and the color range, and it should make things look much more realistic. HDR content is still fairly limited, however, and so is device compatibility. The ill fated Samsung Galaxy Note7 was the first phone to support it, but few people got a chance to try it out on that, for obvious reasons. Its successor, the Note8, as well as the S8 and S8+ support it, too, and it seems YouTube's HDR videos will now work on those devices.

Galaxy Note8 gets an in-depth teardown courtesy of iFixit, receives a score of 4

We just saw the Galaxy Note8 pass through JerryRigEverything's durability testing, and it did quite well. But what about when you do break something on your expensive Note8 and need to repair it? iFixit has just torn down the Note8, and ended up giving Samsung's latest flagship a very "meh"-inducing 4/10. That's still better than the Essential Phone's 1, though.

Galaxy Note8 passes JerryRigEverything's torture test with flying colors

After much leaking, the Galaxy Note8 finally made its official debut about two weeks ago. As we expected, it's a fantastic phone, with virtually no downsides aside from its price. But how does it hold up against JerryRigEverything's durability tests? Just like its little brother, the Galaxy S8, the Note8 holds up remarkably well against all this torture.
