But what's actually new in Android 10, and what are the big features? Some may not be obvious, and most require you to actively explore your phone's settings menus to discover.

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.

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.

More Samsung Galaxy flagships are already getting May's security update

As a long-term Samsung user, I've witnessed first-hand the Hollywood-style comeback Samsung has made in terms of how its phones get updates.

Android Auto Wireless now works on select Samsung Galaxy phones (Update: S20, Z Flip)

Google promised over a year ago that the wireless version of Android Auto would work out-of-the-box on any Android 9.0+ phone, but that hasn't quite panned out. The only devices that have been able to use it are Google's own Pixel devices (plus the Nexus 5X and 6P), but that finally appears to be changing.

Moment announces biodegradable cases for Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra

After yesterday's presentation for the Galaxy S20 line of phones, many of you may have already made the decision to order one of the three models to be your next phone. Since Samsung is sticking to the glass sandwich recipe for this generation, it may be wise to wrap that (potentially $1400) phone in a case to add a bit of protection. If you didn't choose one of Samsung's options, Moment has a couple cases available that might fit the bill, and they are designed to be very environmentally friendly.
