Grab a Samsung Galaxy S21 for $650 ($150 off)

Grab a Samsung Galaxy S21 for $650 ($150 off)

Samsung's phones tend drop pretty quickly in price. Case in point: the Galaxy S21+ and S21 Ultra are already down $200 from when they launched just six weeks ago. The smallest S21 was part of that sale, too, but it only dropped $100 at the time. Now, it's dropped another $50 to just $650 — cheaper than even Google's Pixel 5, an older and less-powerful phone.

Galaxy S21 review: The long-haul Android phone

Galaxy S21 review: The long-haul Android phone

For folks outside our little bubble, Samsung defines the Android experience. It's far from the only company making Android phones, but it's the biggest and the most successful — those that call non-Apple smartphones "Androids" are usually thinking of Samsung when they say it.

How to make your Samsung Galaxy smartphone feel more like a Pixel

I personally love Samsung's One UI, but not everybody wants their Samsung smartphone to feel quite so Samsung. Getting your phone to feel a little more Google and a little less Galaxy is fortunately quite straightforward, both thanks to Android itself and some of the inherent customization features found in One UI. In this guide, we'll show you how to make your Galaxy phone look and feel a bit more Pixel-y. I'll be using my S21 Ultra for this demonstration, but these steps can be used on any Samsung device running One UI 3.0.

65 of the best Android games for kids ages 2-8 (Updated for 2021)

The Play Store doesn't always make it easy to find the games you're looking for, especially if you're on the hunt for games that appeal to children that aren't monetarily abusive.

Keep in mind this is a running list, and so it's continually updated (now with a changelog at the bottom of each page).

LG starts bringing Android 11 to its US phones, beginning with the V60

LG has never had the best reputation for software updates, and that situation really hasn't changed any with the release of Android 11 last year. It took until 2021 before we saw Android 11 updates hit any of the company's phones, and even that had been limited to South Korea. Now we're finally starting to see some domestic action, as the V60 on Verizon and T-Mobile upgrades to Android 11.

Terraria developer and Google finally work out their beef

Terraria is perhaps one of the most successful indie games ever, but earlier this month, the lead developer announced that an in-development version for Google Stadia would be cancelled. The decision came after the creator went on a multi-tweet tirade against Google for shutting down his account (allegedly due to YouTube TOS violations), but now the Stadia port is back on.
