[Update: S8 Active, too] T-Mobile rolls out support for RCS Universal Profile to Galaxy S8 and S8+

Although T-Mobile has offered its own in-network implementation of RCS messaging since 2015, it wasn't until this summer that the carrier joined Sprint in deploying an inter-carrier solution — GSMA's Universal Profile 1.0.

Samsung Good Lock 2018 returns with lots more custom-UI action: Here's what it can do

Some smartphone users are perfectly content to just use their handsets as they arrived, with the phone's interface configured to all its default settings. Others will take the time to personalize a little by changing the wallpaper, and maybe tweaking something like font size to their liking.
