T-Mobile shuts down Sprint's 5G network to redeploy spectrum

T-Mobile will shut down Sprint's 5G network in order to rework its spectrum into its own 5G grid. While those with a Galaxy S20 series device on Sprint will be able to use 5G on either network, other 5G phone owners will eventually have to migrate to those S20s. The upcoming changes have been announced as the recently-merged carriers begin integrating their separate cellular infrastructure into a cohesive network — a process that's expected to take 3 years.

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

I've been very clear about my love for Samsung's One UI, but not everyone feels the same way, preferring a more Pixel-like experience. Thankfully due to the inherent flexibility Android affords, that's something easily accomplished. 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.

The Galaxy S20 isn't for everyone — here are 10 reasons you should buy a Galaxy S10 instead

Samsung began shipping the Galaxy S20 on March 6, but you can still buy a Galaxy S10, the flagship model from 2019, as well. Samsung reduced the prices of the S10 after the S20 went on sale, too, and it's made them appreciably more affordable. And while the S20 will be updated longer and features new stuff like 5G connectivity and additional cameras, it starts at a staggering $1,000. If you're unsure whether a big investment in the S20 is the right call, and if the Galaxy S10 may just be most of the same in a more affordable package, we'll help you decide.

It's now done so again, with Samsung starting its rollout of May's security patch for the S20 series.

The Galaxy S20 series is finally available, but given the $1,000 price for just the base model, it's certainly not a good choice for everyone. For those of you not comfortable with spending that much on a phone, Samsung is keeping the S10 series around, and dropping prices in the process. You can now get the 512GB Galaxy S10 for just $699.99 on Amazon, which is the lowest recorded price yet for this model.
