The Galaxy S10 is getting night photo mode in new OTA

Samsung's EdgeLighting+ update brings cutout "notification light"

With the Galaxy S10, Samsung aimed at designing a handset with a screen covering almost the entire front surface. While the final product is very close to achieving this goal, engineers had to get rid of superfluous elements to make the cutout as small as possible. As such, the LED indicator has been removed to make room for extra pixels, leaving many users frustrated and without a way to easily know they have notifications to look at. Sure, Always On Display can help alleviate this, but it's not as easy to see as a flashing light from afar.

We recently told you about Holey Light, a third-party app that puts an animated circle around the S10's cutout when you receive notifications.

Some Galaxy S10s updated with call/message continuity feature for Tab S5e

People kill for message continuity on their smartphones. After all, iMessage is a major reason why iPhones are so popular. Google released its own version of continuity for its Messages app last year with a web interface, and now some Galaxy S10 models are getting Samsung's version, which it creatively calls "Call & Message Continuity." However, it seems to only work with the Galaxy Tab S5e tablet right now.

Samsung releasing Galaxy S10/S10+ patch to improve fingerprint scanner performance

The Galaxy S10 is an excellent phone, but it's not without its faults. In fact, one of the headlining features isn't so good. Samsung's ultrasonic in-display sensor is often slow and inaccurate, and it's attempting to address that with a new firmware patch rolling out to devices. It's unclear if the sensor is actually any better, but at least Samsung is trying.

Samsung is screwing up many Galaxy S10 trade-ins, leaving customers frustrated

It's not uncommon for smartphone manufacturers to offer some sort of trade-in incentive for the brand-new model. Samsung's been doing it for several iterations now, as have Google and Apple. However, there seems to be an inherent logistical problem with these types of programs. There are always some trade-ins that are deemed ineligible, when, in actuality, they're perfectly compliant. That's what's happening to a bunch of Galaxy S10 buyers who took Samsung up on their trade-in deals.

If this story sounds familiar, it might be because we ran a similar one back in 2017 concerning the S8's trade-in program. It's unfortunate to see that Samsung and the third-parties that it works with haven't really changed their processes through the years, leading to countless customers being swindled out of the discounts they were promised.

[Update: New renders support date] Verizon to purportedly start Galaxy S10 5G sales on May 16

In two days, smartphone fans in Korea will spend up to roughly $1,400 to purchase the Galaxy S10 5G. Samsung's 5G flagship will be the first meaningful push for 5G phones in many countries, but the only thing we knew about its path to the United States was that it would first come to Verizon sometime before summer. That was until leaks blogger Evan Blass tweeted out a cryptic message today.
