The novel coronavirus has come down like a ton of bricks on the global workforce. And with all the precautions and orders in place to shut down society as we've known it, having a smartphone to get things done is more essential than ever. So, if you want something that will do the job well for a good, long while at a low price, then we've got an exclusive deal for you: a Galaxy S10e for $150 off.
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.
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.
This year's Galaxy flagship smartphones are more expensive than ever. If you can't quite stomach the increased price tags, there is some good news: the Galaxy S10 series isn't going anywhere. Similar to what Apple has been doing for years, the previous models will continue being manufactured, and will be sold at lower prices.
Samsung has been testing Android 10 on its Galaxy S10 series extensively, with one beta update chasing the other over the last few weeks. The company is apparently finally satisfied with the software, as it has just started rolling out the stable release with version 2.0 of One UI in tow. It looks like it's only coming to some people in Germany, but it can't take too long until it arrives at more customers.
Samsung's Galaxy S10 phones are fantastic devices; they look great, they're fast, and they come packed with features. If you missed Samsung's $200 off Black Friday sales earlier, here's another opportunity to grab them for prices well under MSRP. Right now on Amazon, the 128GB Galaxy S10 and 128GB S10+ are going for $600 and $700, respectively, which is a solid $300 markdown. The 256GB Galaxy S10e is also on sale for $600, down from its usual $850. All three deals are set to expire at the end of the day today.
Every year Samsung unfailingly puts out a software release roadmaps for its entire smartphone lineup, and this year’s detail when Android 10 is expected to hit eligible Samsung phones. These lists are generally specific to their respective markets, but they do highlight a general global trend. The Galaxy S10 and the Note 10 have been beta testing One UI 2.0 for over a month now, and they’re naturally first in line to get the stable release by January 2020.
Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and Note 10 devices have consistently topped their rivals by bringing a complete package to the table. For this Black Friday, the entire range of 2019 Samsung flagships has been marked down by $200 across several stores. On top of that, Samsung and some other retailers are throwing in a free pair of Galaxy Buds (worth $129) with all Galaxy S10 and Note 10 models, except for the Galaxy S10e.
Just a day after the sixth One UI 2.0 beta update came out for the Galaxy S10 series, another one has been released. As Samsung races to the finish line toward a final stable build of Android 10, a few more bugs are getting squashed along the way.
Samsung has been testing its flavor of Android 10, One UI 2.0, for about a month already across its latest flagship phones. Just a few days after the Galaxy S10 series received the fifth beta, the company is already pushing out the sixth pre-release to its testers on the S10, S10+, and S10e. As the software is nearing its graduation to the stable release channel, there are fewer and fewer changes, and so only some bug fixes and a promotion to the December security patch found their way into this update.
