The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge isn't different from the regular S6 on the inside, but the outside is another story. The phone tapers down on both sides to form something that's arguably prettier and harder to hold. Either way, it comes at a higher cost. T-Mobile sells the phone for $780. AT&T wants $815.
Fortunately, you can currently snag one on eBay for $670. That undercuts T-Mobile's price by $110. Read More
It's summer time, which means that we're getting closer to the unveiling of Samsung's latest and greatest Note device(s) and thus the company is starting to think about lowering its current inventory to make space for the new models. That translates into major savings for customers who want a high-end smartphone that still holds its own against 2015's crop of flagships, or as Samsung likes to call this offer, Notable Savings.
Starting today 12:00 pm ET and until the 26th of July 2015 11:59 pm ET, if you purchase a Galaxy Note 4 at full price in the US from any participating retailer (that excludes Sprint and US Cellular), you can head to samsungpromotions.com/notablesavings to submit your information, device details, and proof of purchase to claim a $200 rebate.

You can get the international unlocked Samsung Galaxy S6 for $500 with free shipping in the USA right now on eBay in black, white, gold, and that horrific blue. It is brand new and should work on most GSM networks, including AT&T and T-Mobile in the USA. This is an extra $30 cheaper than the deal we found just a couple of weeks ago, not to mention the added benefit of color choice. Read More
At this point, custom ROMs are the only things keeping old Galaxy S2s feeling fresh and vaguely modern. If you turned to CyanogenMod as your experience of choice, you've been left stranded on version 11 running Android KitKat. Now you're in for a treat. Fresh builds of CyanogenMod 12.1 are ready for download.
These nightly builds bring Android 5.1 to the four-year-old device. That's nothing to take lightly. These nightlies may not provide the most stable experience, but at this point, that old version of TouchWiz probably isn't either. Read More
If you aren't familiar with the controversy over Samsung's decision to make the S6 and S6 Edge's batteries non-replaceable, you probably don't follow Android news very much. Because you can't just swap out another battery, more people have gotten interested in figuring out how to ensure they have an operating phone after a long day. One method that owners of many smartphones have been using for years is the battery case. While there are tradeoffs involved in putting a case on your phone that is big enough to house a battery, there is a payoff too: no need to find an outlet or juggle wires when your device would normally be running out of juice.

Last week, there was a kerfuffle online about a couple of themes developed by an XDA member for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge that aimed to bring a more authentic Material look to Samsung's devices. Said themes were approved then suspended by the company, supposedly because of copyright infringements over the wallpaper and icons, but the developer fixed those issues and has resubmitted them.
In the meantime, another Material theme was approved and went live today in the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge's Theme Store. Read More
