easyHome Turns Your Samsung Device's Physical Home Button Into A Capacitive One

Strange as it sounds, using the physical home button on Samsung phones can be a lot of work. Tapping a capacitive or on-screen button is faster and doesn't break up the experience as much.

Pictures Of Samsung's 18.4" Galaxy View Tablet Leak And Oh God It Has A Carrying Handle

SamMobile has published some very press-quality photos of Samsung's alleged upcoming 18.4" tablet today, and while confirming the hugeness of the thing, it looks like we can now confidently say the Galaxy View does indeed run Android.

Barnes & Noble And Samsung Introduce A $250 9.6" Nook Based On The Galaxy Tab E

The last tablet Barnes & Noble and Samsung collaborated on was somewhat of a premium product. The Galaxy Tab S2 Nook provided a 2048x1536 resolution on an 8-inch Super AMOLED display, which is plenty sharp for something you're presumably buying to consume books and magazines on.

The latest Nook device, the Galaxy Tab E Nook, does not provide that kind of experience.

Samsung Updates Verizon's Galaxy Core Prime From Android 4.4 All The Way To 5.1.1

Android updates are in the spotlight again, thanks to Motorola's questionable dedication to its own recent products. And while you can (usually) count on at least one or two software updates for most flagship phones, sometimes a low-end device comes back and surprises you.

At the time the relatively small and underpowered budget phone was promised an update to Lollipop. Quoting David earlier this year: "Oh, and it actually comes with a promise of a Lollipop upgrade, so that's good, though how long it'll take is anyone's guess."
