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.

The Galaxy S7 Bares All In iFixit's Teardown, And It's Even Harder To Repair Than Last Year's Model

As usual iFixit has meticulously torn apart the Galaxy S7 for your education and entertainment, and unsurprisingly, the components are even more intricate and hard to replace than they were on the Galaxy S6. Warning: gratuitous phone guts below.

[Deal Alert] Samsung 128GB EVO Class 10 MicroSD Card Drops Back Down To $39.99 On Amazon

I like microSD cards. No trusting your data to file hosting services. No being dependent on having access to Wi-Fi or having to worry about burning through your cellular data allotment. You know your files are accessible when you want them.

When you're looking to buy a microSD card, one aspect to consider is whether it's big. Small is fine, but really, what you want is big. 32GB holds more music than 16GB. 64GB puts 32GB to shame. 128GB crushes them both.

Samsung Pay Adds Compatibility With Wells Fargo Debit Cards And Credit Cards

Samsung continues to push its Pay platform on every front, and according to the latest press release, it's working. The company claims that "about five million users" have used Samsung Pay to spend more than half a billion dollars. That's probably thanks to Samsung's unique system that doesn't require retailers to buy new payment processing hardware. A wide array of compatible banks, credit unions, and credit card companies probably doesn't hurt. Today Samsung announced that Wells Fargo, one of the largest American banks, is joining the program.

Samsung's New Galaxy S7 Commercials Are Funny, Smart, And Star-Studded

Samsung's commercials are often a mixed bag. Sometimes they stumble on a smart idea and execute it well, other times they get stuck repeating themselves and seeming rather petty about it. Luckily, this latest set of commercials for the Galaxy S7 is in the former category. Because if you're going to suffer through these ads for the next few months, they better be good ones, right?

The first commercial, Why? debuted at the Oscars on Sunday and shows a number of celebrities and people asking why can't their phones have a specific feature. Among them is Wesley Snipes who wants to store all of his movies, Lil' Wayne who'd rather seem reckless pouring champagne on his phone but know it'll survive, James Harden who's grumpy for his late cameo appearance in the video, Doc Rivers who only cares about pick and roll defense, and finally William H.

[Weekend Poll] Are You Going To Buy A Galaxy S7 Or S7 Edge?

As has been a foregone conclusion for at least the last the four generations of Galaxy S phones, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge will likely be the most popular Android phones in the world by sales in 2016. Why this will be the case is best left to Samsung fanboys and haters (frankly, does it matter?), because this week's poll isn't about that. Rather, it's about your intention to buy one.

The S7 and S7 edge hit on the major pain points of the previous-generation phones. Waterproofing? It's back. Better battery life? You got it. MicroSD card (albeit without adoptable storage)?
