Save up to $300 when purchasing an unlocked Galaxy S10e, S10, or S10+ from Best Buy

Earlier this month we reported Samsung was offering $100 off on most of the S10 lineup.

However, the brand just extended the markdown to all handsets, and other retailers are even adding some discounts of their own, letting you save up to $300 on a new unlocked phone.

The Galaxy S7 is an old phone, so it's no surprise that Samsung isn't planning on releasing updates for it as frequently anymore. Back in April, the company already announced that the S7 and S7 edge would receive updates on a quarterly basis rather than monthly, but it's just downgraded the update frequency once again to "other regular."

It was the first step in rebranding its smart home devices under the Nest name, and there was speculation that the original Home speaker might be included.

Sorry, YouTube podcasters: Hangouts on Air will shut down later this year

Google Hangouts is set to shut down sometime next year, with spin-offs Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat intended to be full replacement by then.
