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 itself. 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 S20 Ultra for this demonstration, but these steps can be used on any Samsung device running One UI 2.0.

Samsung updates A51 and A71 phones with flagship features from the Galaxy S20

Samsung is the most popular Android manufacturer in the world, and its bestsellers aren't its flagships. The company announced the mid-range A51 and A71 late last year with one of the catchiest jingles I've heard in a smartphone ad. Now software updates that bring many flagship-level features from the Galaxy S20 are coming to both of these lower-end phones.

Unlocked Galaxy A51 deal takes price down to $270 ($130 off) on Amazon

The Galaxy A51 is a splendid $400 phone in a time where the cream of the crop tends to float farther and farther out of affordable reach. But Samsung's latest spotlight mid-ranger can be even better with a good ol' price cut. Amazon's got that cut — if you're willing to deal with a few small catches — taking a good $100 and change off its MSRP.

Samsung Galaxy A51 review: A surprise Pixel 4a challenger

With the Galaxy S20 series starting a thousand dollars, many cash-strapped Samsung fans are probably considering more affordable upgrade options this year. And apparently, Samsung anticipated this (and if it didn't, it sure knows now), as it's making more of its low-end and mid-range lineup available in the US than ever before. Not only did it give last year's S10 series a price cut while continuing to keep it on sale alongside the S20, but it also debuted the Galaxy S10 Lite in America, adding yet more choices to its growing smartphone portfolio.

But Samsung has dug even deeper into bag o' phones, with the mid-range and mid-range-plus Galaxy A51 and A71.

Samsung giving away free Galaxy Buds with unlocked Galaxy A51 purchases

After having an early run elsewhere around the world, Samsung is preparing to inundate the U.S. market with a half-dozen lower-cost smartphones this year — including the company's first cut-price 5G phones. Two of those phones are launching tomorrow: the Galaxy A01 and the Galaxy A51.

OnePlus 8 phones join the club supporting 3D objects and animals in Google Search

There are a lot of fun 3D objects like skeletons, cars, planets, and animals you can view in Google Search, which might be perfect to pass the time while you and your kids are stuck at home. The underlying technology enabling this is called Google Play Services for AR, formerly known as ARCore. It's an engine that powers most games and applications on Android that use augmented reality effects. However, since the framework has to be tuned for each device, Google has to periodically update Play Services to support new phones and tablets. Since the last time we covered the library, 42 more devices have been added to the roster.
