Samsung promises monthly updates for the Galaxy S10 line-up, moves down the S7 to quarterly updates

We all want companies to provide monthly security updates for our devices, but there comes a time when new phones take precedence over older models. Today is one of those difficult times. Samsung has updated its security update page with a few significant changes. The biggest losers are the S7, S7 Edge, and Tab S3 9.7, while newly-released models take their rightful place in the table.

The Galaxy S10's front-facing camera defaults to a 'cropped' view in third-party apps

Everyone's been talking about the clever wallpapers that are the product of the Galaxy S10's hole-punch front-facing camera setup, but it turns out that the front-facing camera itself is having some issues. In third-party apps, the S10 selfie cam's view is a lot more zoomed in than the camera's actual field-of-view.

[Update: Fixed for all] You can't enroll your new Galaxy S10 in Samsung Premium Care unless you added it during purchase

Last year, some Galaxy S9/S9+ owners had trouble registering their brand new devices for Premium Care — Samsung's great extended warranty and in-person support program. The option wasn't available if you didn't pick it while buying your device, and post-purchase enrollment was only opened in September — six months after the phones first became available. History is repeating itself this year, and once again, S10 owners are finding themselves in the same situation.

Galaxy S10+ appears to suffer major LTE signal and connectivity issues on some carriers

The Galaxy S10+ may be one of the best phones you can buy right now, but based on recent reports and our own testing, there's at least one metric where it falls behind: signal strength. It turns out that a combination of your carrier, the frequency you're connected to, and even going caseless can have a huge impact on the quality of its cellular connection, resulting in measurably lower signal strength compared to other recent phones in our testing.

[Update: Looking good for GS10 and GS10e, too] Magnetic phone mounts surprisingly play nice with Galaxy S10+ wireless charging

On most phones that feature wireless charging, you typically need to give up that convenience when installing a magnetic plate for phone mounts — or place the mount in a location where it works poorly to keep it. In our testing, though, that isn't the case when it comes to the Galaxy S10+. The phone is able to work with a magnetic mount quite far up the back, with no loss in wireless charging functionality.

You probably know Chainfire from his work on SuperSU, which he stepped away from last year. Chainfire's latest project isn't quite as complex, but it is pretty timely.

Samsung's One UI night mode forces Android Auto to think it's always nighttime

With One UI, Samsung introduced a system-wide night mode for its Android Pie devices. The new feature darkens the manufacturer's proprietary software such as the Calculator and Messages apps and also alters the overall menus and interface colors, but still requires you to manually enable dark mode in other applications like Messenger or Slack. Android Auto, on the other hand, happily receives this setting and defaults to it, no matter the time of the day.

Samsung embraces the Galaxy S10 camera cutout with new custom wallpapers

We were all a bit skeptical when Samsung started talking about the "Infinity-O" display tech last year. As expected, the Galaxy S10 family sports a hole in the display for the front-facing cameras. At first, Samsung sought to downplay the holes, but now it's getting with the trend of wallpapers that work with the cutout.
