The Galaxy Fold is one of the most troubled smartphones in recent memory, and it hasn't even hit store shelves, yet. From being reengineered after rogue tech reviewers savagely ripped what appeared to be screen protectors right out of the displays, to failing basic legs of JerryRigEverything's device torture test, the pressure for a successful launch has been mounting. In an attempt to ease consumer concerns regarding the Fold's fragile display, Samsung has officially announced a screen replacement program for early adopters. Read More
It doesn't take a physicist to figure out that the less light a camera sensor can capture, the fewer details the resulting picture will have. And yet, the challenge with mobile photography has always been about miniaturization without excessive compromise — how much light can you pull in an instant from smaller photo sites? Samsung may have developed an answer bright enough to debut: it will have its 43.7MP ISOCELL Slim GH1 sensor on volume production by the end of this year. Read More

Samsung’s India division just took the wraps off of two brand new handsets, the Galaxy M10s and the Galaxy M30s, both designed to appeal to active millennials and Gen Zers.
Samsung Galaxy M30s
Although its less power-centric sibling is an admirable smartphone for most, the Samsung Galaxy M30s is the true showstopper of this release.
For starters, Samsung managed to pack a massive 6,000 mAh into an 8.9mm thick chassis weighing in at only 188 grams. Estimated battery life for this beast clocks in at 29 hours of video playback, 49 hours of voice calls, and over 131 hours of music playback! Read More
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 + are very expensive phones, and they lack some features of past Samsung devices like a headphone jack and a microSD card slot (on the smaller phone). So surely, these phones are selling slower than previous Samsung phones. Nope! Samsung says the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ have moved 1 million units in South Korea faster than any previous launch.

After leaks have shown virtually everything the Pixel 4 has to offer, Netflix doesn't seem to care if someone spots the yet-to-be-unveiled phone on its website.
