[Deal Alert] AT&T Refurbished Galaxy S6 32GB Listed In Excellent Condition Only $329.99 In 3 Colors On eBay

The Galaxy S6 was a game changer in terms of Samsung flagship design. Plastics became a thing of the past. Instead, the S6 showed off metal sides and a Gorilla Glass chassis. As far as phones go, it was a thing of beauty.

The software experience, not so much.

Janky software isn't as big a deal when you're not paying full price for a piece of hardware, so without further ado, I point you toward eBay.

CyanogenMod 13 (Android 6.0) Nightlies Come To The Zenfone 2, SHIELD Portable, And AT&T, T-Mobile, And Sprint Versions Of The Galaxy S III

The Galaxy S III, first released back in 2012, only has official software support up to Android 4.3. No matter: the folks at the CyanogenMod development team are keeping the device alive long after Samsung threw in the towel. Today the AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint variants of the GSIII all get their very first nightly ROM builds for CyanogenMod 13, which is based on Android 6.0. You can find them at the d2att, d2tmo, and d2spr listings on the CM download page, respectively.

In contrast, Asus has already promised a Marshmallow build for the Zenfone 2, which is less than a year old at this point.

TWRP Is Now Available For The Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge (Exynos Versions)

One of the benefits of buying into popular flagships is that all the odds of community support are in your favor. Provided that the manufacturer wasn't being a colossal pain, you shouldn't have to wait long to see some enterprising developers and modders provide a root method, a custom recovery, a bootloader unlock, and more custom ROMs than you dare imagine.

That's the case with the latest Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The devices have been "officially" on sale for less than a week and yet here is Team Win ready with its TWRP custom recovery for the Exynos version (the international variant) of the phone.

Samsung's Ludicrously Huge Galaxy View Tablet Now Available From Verizon

So, do you remember the Samsung Galaxy View mega-tablet? It came out a few months ago in WiFi-only form, and the price dropped almost immediately because most people don't want a tablet that big. Now, Verizon is selling an LTE-enabled version that's more expensive. This is innovation.

Get A Samsung Galaxy S7 With $0 Down And Free Shipping From AT&T [Sponsored Post]

If you're one to always jump on the newest and best smartphones, the latest from Samsung is undoubtedly on your radar. And when a smaller, slightly more manageable handset is what you're looking for, the Galaxy S7 is probably your best bet — its 5.1-inch quad HD display keeps the device's overall footprint small while the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB of RAM keeps everything snappy and responsive.

That's not all the GS7 has going for it, either — Samsung brought back the expandable storage option for this model, which is a pretty big deal to those who love to keep tons of stuff stored on their phones.

Sprint customers have a lot to deal with, starting with the fact that they're paying for Sprint service. (I kid, I kid.)

MoDaCo Manages To Get Adoptable SD Card Storage Working On The Galaxy S7 And Galaxy S7 Edge, No Root Required

It was a nice surprise when Samsung announced that its new flagship phones would be running Android 6.0, and that they were bringing back the much-requested expandable storage was icing on the cake. The news that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge would not support adoptable storage, Android Marshmallow's ability to take an SD card and partition it as semi-permanent device storage, was met with less enthusiasm. But all is not lost, expandable storage fans: long-time modder and ROM developer Paul "MoDaCo" O'Brien has got this covered.
