The Galaxy S10 will come pre-installed with McAfee bloatware

With its display covering almost the entire front surface, the Galaxy S10's design aims at being simple and clutter-free. Samsung's software, on the other hand, isn't necessarily popular for being sleek, as it noticeably changes Android's classic look and feel. The company has further customized its interface with the recent release of One UI, which looks nice, albeit different from the OS' standard appearance. Galaxy devices also come with extra apps, which are often useless and end up taking additional space. The latest flagships will be no exception as they'll come preloaded with McAfee's anti-malware bloatware.

[Update: Coming to older phones] Rejoice: The Galaxy S10's Bixby button can be remapped out of the box

Anyone who's familiar with Samsung phones will know of the company's long-standing fight against third-party developers and their Bixby button-remapping apps. These remapping apps first surfaced shortly after the Galaxy S8 launched, with Samsung quickly taking action to disable them. This back-and-forth continued over the coming months, but it looks like Samsung has finally obliged its Bixby haters by offering a remapping option out of the box with the brand-new Galaxy S10.

Why Samsung using ultrasonic tech for the Galaxy S10's in-screen fingerprint scanner matters

Samsung has just announced its latest super-duper flagship phone, and among the new features it boasts is the world's first commercial ultrasonic fingerprint sensor under a display. We've seen other in-display scanners on phones from the likes of OnePlus and Huawei, but they use optical technology instead. This new ultrasonic method is supposed to be better in more ways than one — let's take a look at why.

Samsung's official Galaxy S10 wallpapers all try really hard to hide the display cutout

Some people aren't thrilled with the placement of the Galaxy S10 series' hole-punch cutout, and Samsung seems to be very aware of that. All of the S10's wallpapers conveniently fade to black at their top right corners, which is an interesting tactic. The six new wallpapers are now available for your viewing and downloading pleasure.

The Galaxy S10 5G is a 6.7", six-camera, 4500mAh monster of a phone built for nobody


Samsung gave us our first look at the Galaxy S10 5G at a closed-door press briefing yesterday, and boy - is this thing a whole lot of phone. It's the size of a Galaxy Note 9, but slightly thinner and lighter (shockingly), and sports a unique, shimmery silver finish that I quite like. It also has a 5G logo on the back, because of course it does, and... that's about all I can tell you about it as an experience, because Samsung wasn't letting anyone power it on.

But I think we can still say a lot about this phone, even screen-unseen.
