Samsung's various models for the S21 aren't all the same. If the price and physical size didn't clue you in, the spec sheets likely did. And nestled among the list of different named standards and numbers is a curious tidbit that escaped detection on launch day: While the lower-end Galaxy S21 and S21+ support 960 fps super slow motion video (in bursts up to 0.5s), the ostensibly more premium S21 Ultra, with its upgraded cameras, doesn't — or least, it doesn't natively.
When a new version of One UI is released, it often breaks compatibility with certain Good Lock modules until they themselves can be updated. Last year Samsung refreshed (almost) all of the Good Lock modules at once in what it called the "2020" update, and the company was set to do the same thing next month. Today, several weeks ahead of schedule, Samsung has started to distribute Good Lock 2021, bringing all-new features and restoring some old ones.
The Galaxy Buds Live, affectionately known as the Galaxy Beans, are now discounted at Best Buy in refurbished form. For only $69.99, $100 less than MSRP new, you can have yourself a pair of true wireless buds that will (hopefully) nestle comfortably in your ears and let you listen to your music in peace.
Truly wireless earbuds are hella convenient, but the comparatively expensive price tags associated with them usually call for the use of cases. While most official cases are a standard affair, Samsung's newest ones for its latest Galaxy Buds Pro offer up some welcome nostalgia.
Android 11 is slowly starting to make its way to Samsung phones on US carriers, with the Verizon Galaxy S20 FE being the latest recipient. The update started hitting global S20 FE variants around a month ago, making its way stateside last week on the AT&T model. Now, it's Big Red's turn to send the OTA out.
Samsung announced its newest pair of wireless earbuds last week. They're sounding pretty solid so far, but it looks like the company is already pushing out an update for the buds with new features and tweaks in tow, making the Galaxy Buds Pro an even more attractive option for potential buyers.
Samsung just released the Galaxy S21 last week, and now, the first teardown video is already available for you to gaze at. It comes courtesy of YouTube channel PBKreviews and features a complete disassembly and reassembly of the regular S21, complete with the first repairability assessment. Spoiler alert: It looks like many parts could be pretty easily replaceable, except for the battery.
Samsung revealed its new Galaxy S21 phones last week, but that wasn't all the company talked about. It was also announced that Samsung's SmartThings device controls would soon be accessible through Android Auto, and now the functionality is already going live.
