We've already seen some renderings of the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, but thanks to some not very well-disguised 360-degree views hosted on Verizon's website, we now know that this S20 Lite of sorts will be coming stateside. The phone will come in three pretty eye-catching colors.
I started out as a folding phone critic. In fact, I bought the Z Flip we reviewed this spring with the full intention of pointing out how dumb the idea was, except I was dead wrong. I fell in love with my little flip phone, and the last week spent with the Galaxy Z Fold2 has further cemented my change of heart. Folding phones are undeniably the future, and for the right folks, the Z Fold2 is a must-buy game-changer — though probably not for you.
Samsung's Galaxy Watch Active2 has had several helpful features added over the past months. Oftentimes these features launch first in Korea, but not today — Samsung has introduced a host of new health, fitness, and convenience features for the Galaxy Watch Active2, available right here in the US of A.
Samsung's Good Lock suite of customization apps are a fantastic way of personalizing your Galaxy phone, but the company isn't content with simply updating the modules that already exist. A few days ago, Pentastic was introduced for S Pen UI customizations, and now Samsung is back with another new app. Wonderland all about wallpaper creation themed around Lewis Carroll's Alice and her various adventures.
Samsung unveiled the S20 Ultra earlier this year as the most premium offering in its S range of devices. Despite boasting big specs, it was tough to recommend at the MSRP of $1,400. We initially gave the S20 Ultra a 7/10 rating, but later lowered that to 6/10 due to the cost and mediocre camera performance. It's a lot more attractive right now, thanks to a top-rated eBay seller offering brand new, factory unlocked models for just $829.99.
Updates used to be a sore talking point for Samsung, but that's no longer the case. The company recently committed to OS updates for three device generations, and it's been shooting out updates for its latest phones left and right. In the same vein, Samsung has just added some of its latest devices, including the Note20, Fold2, and Tab S7, to its security update schedule.
Samsung offered some decent trade-in values and a good amount of store credit with the launch of the Galaxy Note20 series, but if you'd rather have a good old discount, you're in luck. Amazon and B&H currently have the US unlocked models of the Note20 and Note20 Ultra for $799.99 and $1,099.99, respectively, representing a price drop of $200 for both.
Samsung's Galaxy Watches usually pair excellent hardware with refined software, but there still aren't that many third-party applications. Samsung has covered most of the basics with its own apps, and you likely won't do most of the same tasks with your watch as you would with your smartphone, but it can still be difficult to find apps to improve your watch's usability. It doesn't help that the Galaxy Store lumps in watch faces with applications, so scrolling through the top apps mostly amounts to scrolling through various clock styles.
Storing things in the digital cloud is great, but what happens when the sun comes out? This fiction is becoming a reality for many Samsung Cloud users, as the company continues shutting down its cloud storage services to make room for a more monetarily beneficial deal with Microsoft. Samsung is now giving users a timetable for making the switch before everything gets deleted next year.
