Samsung Launches New Promos For Samsung Pay ($200 Samsung Gift Card) And The Tab S2 (1 Year Of Netflix)

Samsung is cranking up the promotions this holiday season, which is great if you already have or are planning to get select Galaxy devices. Signing up for Samsung Pay can net you $200 to blow on Samsung products (this one is football-themed for some reason), and a Tab S2 can keep you streaming with a free year of Netflix. As usual, many, many restrictions apply.

Samsung Announces The 2016 Galaxy A Series, Coming First To China Later This Month

Samsung has updated the mid-range Galaxy A series with three new models set to debut later this month. The Galaxy A7, A5, and A3 (seen in that order above, not to scale) will come to China first, but they'll expand globally later. These are positioned as cheaper alternatives to the Galaxy S series, but they do have some solid features and Samsung's now-standard metal/glass construction.

The Ruggedized Galaxy S6 Active Makes A Pretty Decent Hockey Puck On Unbox Therapy

A hockey puck is made of about six ounces of hardened rubber. It's hard to put a dent in one, and it has to be, because after a few games anything weaker would look like the "after" images at the NHTSA testing facility. A smartphone is made of plastic, metal, glass, and various bits of circuit board and other electronics, none of which is designed to be smacked repeatedly by sticks and ice. Unless you have a "ruggedized" model like Samsung's various Active phones, of course.

As part of YouTube's "Awesome Stuff Week," the Unbox Therapy channel decided to see if a Galaxy S6 Active could stand up to the punishing job of being a hockey puck stand-in.

Long-Time Samsung Mobile President JK Shin To Be Replaced By R&D VP Koh Dong Jin

We've all become accustomed to Samsung Mobile head JK Shin appearing on stage at each flagship unveiling, but no more. The company announced today that he's stepping aside to allow another executive to take the reins. Koh Dong Jin from Samsung's R&D division will be the new man in charge of Samsung's mobile business. No one seems entirely sure what Jin will do as president of Samsung's mobile division, but everyone agrees it was time for a change.

Samsung Internet Is A Web Browser For Gear VR Hitting The Oculus Store Tomorrow, December 2nd

The Gear VR takes your smartphone's screen and holds it much closer to your eyes than you would ever do yourself. Then with the proper use of sensors, it makes you feel like you're someplace else.

But Samsung doesn't want you to think its weird-looking goggles are a one-trick pony. It has developed a web browser that may not be quite as exciting as riding a helicopter over the Hawaiian islands but still manages to be significantly more immersive than your typical web surfing experience.

[Deal Alert] The 9.7-Inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Is Just $359 On eBay ($140 Off) With Free Shipping To The US

Android tablets don't seem to be in high demand since the default size for flagship phones has shifted to "frickin huge," but for those who still want one, there are deals to be had right now. Adorama, a well-known US electronics retailer, is selling the latest Samsung flagship tablet for a significant discount on eBay. The 9.7-inch version of the Galaxy Tab S2, which has a retail price of $500, is just $359 on eBay right now. Both the black and white models are available, and if you live in the lower 48, you get free shipping as well.

Unfortunately, would-be buyers in Alaska and Hawaii are out of luck, as is anyone outside of Canada, Australia, and "Europe." Europe is in quotes there because the list of excluded countries also includes most of continental Europe from Ukraine all the way to Portugal - apparently Adorama thinks that Europe consists of Germany, the UK, and Ireland, and not much else.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Gear S2 SmartWatch Down $30 Or $40 On Adorama, With Additional $50 Mail-In Rebate

Android Wear is not everyone's thing. I splurged for a Huawei Watch with a mesh link earlier today when Amazon's $100 discount kicked off, but you may not like the look of the Hwatch or the way Android Wear works. Or you might be invested in Samsung's ecosystem and have more faith in the way they handle their wearable's platform. After all, it's your wrist, you can wear whatever you want on it.

In that case, you might want to head to Adorama today. I know, I know, it's not Amazon, and you'll have to create an account if you never shopped there, and do all of that unnecessary work while you're still under the influence of a glucose coma from your meal, but it might be worth the effort of working a few more minutes.
