The prices on the dual-SIM variants of both the Samsung S8 and the S8+ have been steadily dropping over the past few weeks on eBay, first to $670 and $770 and then to $640 and $728, respectively. Now, the same seller has brought down the price on either model by another $40, putting the S8 at a penny under 600 bucks, and the S8+ at just $689.99 — representing a total savings of around $150 compared to what you would find if you tried to buy the same phones elsewhere.
This seller has a pretty solid track record, with a 99.7% positive feedback rating and a top rated certificate from eBay, so there shouldn't be much reason to be concerned about where you're buying from. Read More
When we last looked at TWRP, the project had added support for a whopping 17 new devices. Granted, most of those were variations of three Samsung devices, but it's still impressive. Since then, three more devices have been added to the official builds - including the LG G6. Read More
Back in March, Samsung revealed the second-generation Gear 360 camera alongside the Galaxy S8. The new design did away with the tripod mount in favor of a non-moving grip handle, and it could record video at a higher resolution than the old model.

The Galaxy S8 is a phone with very few flaws - it has a class-leading display, the newest chipset on the market, a great camera, water resistance, wireless charging, and more. However, it's quite expensive, leading many to go for a more affordable device. We've been seeing some sales on the S8 and S8+ lately, and this is one of the best: a free $200 gift card from Best Buy with the purchase of an unlocked Galaxy S8 or S8+. Read More
Recently, Samsung's Indian R&D released a new app called Walk Mode. It's advertised as notifying you if there is a danger present as you go about your business using your phone while walking. Safety is quite a noble endeavor for Samsung to be pursuing, and I'd like to say that the company's efforts paid off, but I would be lying. Read More
MWC Shanghai started today and Samsung is on the floor making some announcements. The first one is the growth of its ISOCELL technology to become a standalone image sensor brand, with 4 new sub-brands that cater to different devices and markets. The aim is to make it easier for customers to recognize the main strength and features of future devices' cameras.
The 4 sub-brands are Bright for great low-light images, Fast for quick autofocus even in the dark, Slim for thin sensors that still deliver great photos in slim devices, and Dual which have combinations of different sensors to bring multiple features in one device. Read More

According to the WSJ report, Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 7 Fandom Edition on July 7th in South Korea. Read More
Samsung is far from the best company when it comes to product names (remember the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch?). In a similar vein, there are actually two tablets called the Galaxy Tab S2 - one released in 2015 with an Exynos processor, and another in 2016 with a Snapdragon chip. Verizon's Snapdragon model already received an Android 7.0 update, and now it's the Exynos model's turn. Read More
