Samsung Announces Three New Speakers For Their Wireless Audio 360 Lineup, This Time They Aren't Shaped Like Eggs

In advance of IFA, Samsung is promoting a new set of wireless speakers they will show off there. Adding to their product lineup called Wireless Audio 360, this might signal a bit more seriousness on Samsung's part in terms of competing in the consumer speaker market. The R1, R3, and R5 join the R6 and R7, which were announced last year and look like eggs.

Samsung boasts about the design that blasts sound out in every direction, which addresses a fairly common shortcoming for consumer speakers. Unlike the previous generation's models, these will have some physical controls atop each device so you don't need to have access to the source to make adjustments.

[Video] The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ And Note 5 Are Aggressively Killing Background Tasks, Decreasing Multitasking Performance

While the Note 5 and S6 edge+ are far from the first Samsung phones with reported issues killing background tasks with unusual aggressiveness, they are the first ones with four freaking gigabytes of RAM to do so. We've long assumed that Samsung's background task issues on certain handsets are related to a lack of RAM headroom due to TouchWiz, and yet, the Note 5 and S6 edge+ may exhibit the most aggravating task killing of any Samsung devices we've yet seen. Let's cut to the video for a complete explanation. (I realize it's long, but I'd recommend watching all the way through to see what's going on here.)

The issue was readily reproducible on both our S6 edge+ and Note 5 review units, and we aren't the first people to point this out.

Samsung Appears To Be Pushing Notification Ads To Some Users

Have you heard? Samsung has announced new phones. In case you have not heard, here's an ad in your notification shade. It looks like this has happened to at least a few people thanks to the Samsung Push Service. In a separate incident, I myself have been served an ad by the bundled Peel remote app. Is nothing sacred anymore, Samsung?

[Update: Available Now] A T-Mobile Version Of Samsung's 8-Inch Galaxy Tab A Has Popped Up On The Carrier's Website

Way back in April Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Tab A, a new tablet line with a 4:3 screen and metal body that screams "iPad alternative" in every language. So far we haven't heard of any carriers taking a bite, but Samsung's tablets are so ubiquitous that it was more or less inevitable. T-Mobile hasn't officially announced a Galaxy Tab A for the "Uncarrier," but the company's support site now has a listing for a branded version.

[Deal Alert] Best Price Yet On The Galaxy S6: Get An Unlocked 32GB LTE Model For $469.99 From eBay

The hot ticket for Samsung seems to be its Edge models, but if all you want is a solid flagship at a good price, great deals can be had on the standard Galaxy S6 model. If you head over to eBay's Daily Deals portal, you'll see a vendor selling an unlocked 32GB model for $469.99, a solid $130 off the unlocked retail price and $10 less than our previous best price for the phone. Get an order in quick if you want one, this isn't likely to last very long.
