Samsung Pay App Arrives In The Play Store For The Four Already Compatible Devices

Samsung Pay App Arrives In The Play Store For The Four Already Compatible Devices

Since launch, users have been able to download the Samsung Pay app from Samsung's own dedicated app store. But since enough people aren't aware that place exists, the app inevitably must make it to Google Play as well. And here it is.

Play Store availability doesn't open the app to any more devices than before. Samsung Pay remains a Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, and Note 5 exclusive.

Verizon Pushes Out Samsung Pay-Enabling OTA With Stagefright Patches To Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, And Note 5—Samsung Details First Monthly Security Update

Verizon Pushes Out Samsung Pay-Enabling OTA With Stagefright Patches To Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, And Note 5—Samsung Details First Monthly Security Update

Samsung Pay is an interesting approach to this whole mobile payments thing. You don't have to wait on retailers to roll out support. Sure, you can use NFC in stores that are hip enough for such shenanigans, or you can use magnetic secure transmission (MST) to pay at terminals that would otherwise only accept debit and credit cards.

Samsung Pay launched last month, but the feature wasn't actually usable until carriers enabled support. And they did, except for Verizon Wireless. Well, now the hold out is pushing out updates to the four Samsung devices that have the hardware necessary to use MST: the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and Note 5.

[Deal Alert] Unlocked 32GB Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ (G928G) Down To $600 On eBay

If the Galaxy Note 5 is essentially a larger Galaxy S6 with a stylus, the Edge+ is a larger version of the S6 Edge. You want a big phone with those fancy sides, and Samsung understands. The company hardly shies from the chance to produce another model that you might buy.

Samsung's Game Tuner App (For S6, S6e, S6e+, Note 5) Is An Awesome Way To Scale Any Game's Resolution And FPS

Samsung's Game Tuner App (For S6, S6e, S6e+, Note 5) Is An Awesome Way To Scale Any Game's Resolution And FPS

A truly useful piece of software? From Samsung? Color me surprised, too, but the company's new Game Tuner app is nothing short of incredibly handy for mobile gamers. As you may well know, playing visually-intensive games on your smartphone can demolish the battery fairly quickly. While most such games render at 1080p even on 2K displays like Samsung's, such resolutions can be big draws on both your remaining juice and your device's processor, causing throttling (and thus slowdowns) and excessive power drain. Samsung's new app lets you have a say in just how graphically hungry those games will be, allowing you to adjust maximum frame rate and resolution scaling.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge 64GB International Unlocked G925F Variant Is Down To $549.99 On Ebay

[Deal Alert] Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge 64GB International Unlocked G925F Variant Is Down To $549.99 On Ebay

Remember the exorbitant amount of casheesh that Samsung wanted for its Galaxy S6 Edge less than half a year ago? Yeah, that's no more. As is the case with most flagships, if you're patient enough to wait for prices to drop, they inevitably will and to a point where you could actually consider forking that much money for them.

A few weeks ago, we spotted the 32GB S6 Edge down at $499, and now we're seeing the 64GB version at an equally awesome discount. How awesome? $549.99. That's how much the eBay seller wants for the G925F model, which is the international unlocked variant of the phone.

Vodafone UK Wi-Fi Calling On Android Will Start With The Galaxy S6 And S6 Edge Sometime This Fall

Vodafone UK announced its own Wi-Fi Calling service earlier this month, but support remains extremely limited. As of right now, the only devices listed are the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Fortunately that's about to change, though not by much. Android compatibility is coming in the form of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.

DxOMark Reviews The LG G4's Camera, Ranks It Second Best Behind The Galaxy S6 Edge

DxOMark Reviews The LG G4's Camera, Ranks It Second Best Behind The Galaxy S6 Edge

Over the past couple of years, LG's smartphones have been drastically improving their imaging capabilities. I was as impressed with my LG G2 as my Lumia 1020 (well, minus the huge image resolution advantage), and the camera performance only got better with the G3 and the G4. This was bound to land the company on DxOMark's radar, where their sensors and software were compared against competing mobile devices.

The final tally? A second overall position behind Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge (and likely the S6, Note 5, and S6 Edge+), tied with the Note 4 and Motorola X Style, and edging out the iPhone 6 and Xperia Z3+.

[Update: Sprint Version Available] Team Win Recovery Project Adds Official Support For The GSM Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+

[Update: Sprint Version Available] Team Win Recovery Project Adds Official Support For The GSM Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+

Samsung might be giving lip service to the new Note 5, but it's clear that the company (and a considerable portion of buyers) sees the more swanky Galaxy S6 Edge+ as the flagship device. Now those who've paid the premium for the curvy phone can use the most popular custom recovery out there: Team Win Recovery Project. The developers have posted an official build of TWRP for the GS6E+ to the website.

The website lists this recovery for the GSM version of the phone, so presumably it will work with the standard international version and GSM carrier variants that don't lock down the bootloader (so...
