Those affected are getting a $250 credit for anything at Samsung's online storefront.

Did your phone get a day one update for Android 10? If you don't have a Pixel or Essential Phone, probably not. Apparently, though, if you bought the newest Samsung smartphones from the past year, you might be able to get it fairly soon — that is, if you bought it from T-Mobile.

The Galaxy A90 5G is the cheaper, flat-screen S10+ of your dreams

Until now, 5G has been reserved for only the most expensive phones on the market. Recent flagships such as the Galaxy Note 10 don't even have it, there has to be a special version with a 5G radio that costs even more.

Galaxy Note10+ review: Reaching peak Note

The Galaxy Note10+ is the biggest Galaxy Note Samsung's released yet (which tends to be the case every year), but I'll get straight to the point: it's quite possibly the one with the fewest differences from its smaller Galaxy S siblings, as well. Even size doesn't seem to be much of a differentiator anymore, as the six-month-old Galaxy S10+ is a scant few millimeters shorter and narrower than the mighty Note10+. This is where I've ended up after using the phone for a couple of weeks, and I just can't shake that comparison.

Galaxy A90 leaks signal that 5G phones may soon become a little cheaper

We're still early yet in the era of 5G technology and, so far, we've only 5G-capable phones that are very expensive. Sometimes very, very expensive.

But there's now growing intelligence on such a device coming out of Samsung in the near future — the Galaxy A90 5G.

Samsung may be working on a cheaper Galaxy Fold with 256GB of storage

The Galaxy Fold is on the verge of shipping—for real this time. Samsung spent several months addressing the issues that popped up during the early review program, but the phone will still set you back almost $2,000. That is, of course, not an amount of money most people are willing to pay for a phone right now. Of course, we thought that about $1,000 phones not that long ago. Still, Samsung is reportedly working on a cheaper variant of the Fold.
