You probably know Chainfire from his work on SuperSU, which he stepped away from last year. Chainfire's latest project isn't quite as complex, but it is pretty timely.

You can't enroll your new Galaxy S10 in Samsung Premium Care unless you added it during purchase

Last year, some Galaxy S9/S9+ owners had trouble registering their brand new devices for Premium Care — Samsung's great extended warranty and in-person support program. The option wasn't available if you didn't pick it while buying your device, and post-purchase enrollment was only opened in September — six months after the phones first became available.

Galaxy S10e review: The best Android phone for the money - and for most people

I reviewed the Galaxy S10+, and I had a lot of positive things to say about it.

The new feature darkens the manufacturer's proprietary software such as the Calculator and Messages apps and also alters the overall menus and interface colors, but still requires you to manually enable dark mode in other applications like Messenger or Slack. Android Auto, on the other hand, happily receives this setting and defaults to it, no matter the time of the day.

As phones get more advanced and more densely packed with tech, their construction becomes less conducive to user serviceability.
