One UI 3.1 has been rolling out to older Galaxy devices quickly in the last few months. Despite only being an incremental upgrade over 3.0, it carries over several useful features from the Galaxy S21 to its older siblings. Over the last few weeks, One UI 3.1 has arrived for several mid-range devices and some T-Mobile variants.
A bunch of Galaxy phone users got a bit of a head start on the December 2020 security patch when Samsung released the update two weeks ahead of schedule. While that update was meant for some international beta users testing out One UI 3.0, Samsung kick-started the stable rollout of the latest patch in the US at the beginning of the month. The first device to get bumped to the December 2020 level was Verizon’s Galaxy S20 FE, most recently followed by the Tab S6, Tab S4, and the S8 Active.
TeamWin Recovery Project, or TWRP for short, is a custom recovery partition often used together with custom ROMs and/or rooting. It can help you create full device backups, install new ROMs, and troubleshoot broken software. TWRP v3.4 was released in June with limited Android 10 support, and now TWRP 3.5 is rolling out to all supported devices.
The November security patch is slowly coming to more carrier-locked Samsung phones while handsets around the world have already started getting the update in October. This time around, the Verizon Galaxy Note20 series and the AT&T Galaxy Fold were the first carrier-locked devices in line to receive the patch, most recently followed by the Verizon Galaxy Z Fold2.
We at AP think that the best tablet on the market is *gasp* the iPad, but if you really want to stick with the Android ecosystem, it's hard to go wrong with Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. Already fairly priced at its MSRP of $349.99, this $279.99 deal represents an all-time low price for this tablet.
Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is, as our own Corbin put it in his review, the Android tablet to beat. It's well built, with a nice display, an included stylus, and a very capable battery. If that sounds like something you'd be into, you can pick one up for $50 off today from a number of retailers.
Good Android tablets are far and few between, but the new Galaxy Tab S6 Lite from Samsung is one of the better ones out there. Stickering at $349.99, the 64GB Tab S6 Lite is currently down to $299.99 with a Samsung Book Cover ($69.99 value) included. The only catch is that you need to be a Costco member to take advantage of this deal.
Samsung is one of the few companies that still produce quality Android tablets. The new Tab S6 Lite isn't quite high-end, but it still strikes a good balance between features and price, if buying an iPad is completely out of the question. Its already reasonable price fell $20 to $330 just last week, and now it's down another $10 to a very appealing $320. The 128GB version is $30 off, too.
