Snag a pair of refurbished Galaxy Buds from Best Buy today for just 60 bucks

The first-generation Galaxy Buds were released last year to great acclaim for their well-rounded sound quality, above-average battery life, and comfortable design. Even though they aren't the new kids on the block anymore, they're still a solid option that's hard to resist now that they're so cheap.

Samsung could be working on a Lite variant of the Galaxy Fold

Samsung has so far launched a pair of foldable phones, both with sky-high prices. While as a brand, it can feel nice to have a couple ultra-premium phones on your store shelves that are effectively reserved for your most well-to-do customers, even a fancy folding phone is going to need a sensibly priced model in order to drive real volumes. It looks like Samsung may be catching on to that, as the company's rumored to be working on a cheaper variant of its $2,000 Galaxy Fold.

Samsung Galaxy A51 review: A surprise Pixel 4a challenger

With the Galaxy S20 series starting a thousand dollars, many cash-strapped Samsung fans are probably considering more affordable upgrade options this year. And apparently, Samsung anticipated this (and if it didn't, it sure knows now), as it's making more of its low-end and mid-range lineup available in the US than ever before. Not only did it give last year's S10 series a price cut while continuing to keep it on sale alongside the S20, but it also debuted the Galaxy S10 Lite in America, adding yet more choices to its growing smartphone portfolio.

But Samsung has dug even deeper into bag o' phones, with the mid-range and mid-range-plus Galaxy A51 and A71.

Google Pay vs. Samsung Pay: Which tap to pay system is best?

If you're less than excited to whip out our credit cards or touch a PIN pad at the store, you're not alone: contactless payments are on the rise in America, especially right now. You might have heard about one or both of the major contactless payment providers on Android, Google Pay and Samsung Pay, but you might be familiar with what makes each distinct. While both do offer the same basic tap-to-pay NFC functionality, there are some differences in their ease of use, support for alternate contactless payment standards, and in the apps themselves. Here's how to figure out which one is best for you.

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. Gone are the days of waiting almost a year for significant version changes, or being several months behind on security patches. Not only have Samsung devices been receiving updates faster than ever before, in some cases, Samsung has even beaten Google to the punch. It's now done so again, with Samsung starting its rollout of May's security patch for the S20 series.
