Samsung's April update is ready for more tablets and Galaxy A phones

Samsung's April update is ready for more tablets and Galaxy A phones

Samsung has put a lot of effort into improving its software reputation, and a big aspect of that change has been a renewed focus on issuing regular security updates. Over the last couple of years, Samsung has frequently managed to beat Google to the punch, and that continues even now as the Galaxy Note10, Z Fold2, and S21 have all received the April security patch, more recently followed by the Galaxy A72, Tab A 10.5 (2018), and Tab S7+.

Samsung's elite foldable club gets its strangest perk yet

Samsung's elite foldable club gets its strangest perk yet

Remember Samsung's Galaxy Z Premier service, that thing they launched when they announced the super-expensive Galaxy Z Fold back in 2019? It's still around! Yeah, weird, right? Initially promoted as an upper echelon of live, 24-7 technical support, Samsung has expanded it into a suite of owner benefits for its most expensive devices. Including desserts, apparently.

Samsung could finally make the tablet Apple can't

If you didn't know Samsung's working on a tablet with a display that folds not once, but twice, count yourself informed. Following initial reporting, further details are unfolding about the product build and timeline.

Galaxy Z Fold2 picks up permanent $200 discount, plus an extra $100 off with referral

Galaxy Z Fold2 picks up permanent $200 discount, plus an extra $100 off with referral

Samsung has permanently dropped the Galaxy Z Fold2's price by $200, bringing the retail price down to "just" $1,800. I know, that's still a lot of cash, especially for an unproven form factor, but foldables are one of those things you just have to try to understand, and this makes the best one you can buy right now a tiny bit more accessible. There's also a cherry on top: If a friend with a Z-series foldable sends you a referral code, you can snag an extra $100 off.

Samsung December patch now reaching Tab S6, Tab S4, and S8 Active

A bunch of Galaxy phone users got a bit of a head start on the December 2020 security patch when Samsung released the update two weeks ahead of schedule. While that update was meant for some international beta users testing out One UI 3.0, Samsung kick-started the stable rollout of the latest patch in the US at the beginning of the month. The first device to get bumped to the December 2020 level was Verizon’s Galaxy S20 FE, most recently followed by the Tab S6, Tab S4, and the S8 Active.

Samsung just updated one of its phone apps to serve you even more ads

Samsung just updated one of its phone apps to serve you even more ads

Ads are the worst, yet we see them everywhere. They fund the content we consume, for free, on a daily basis. It's one thing to receive ads on a website you are going to for free, but it's quite another when an OEM goes out of its way to force an app onto your phone in order to serve you more ads. Sadly, that is exactly what Samsung just did with its new Samsung Visit In update through the Galaxy Store.

The unbelievable month-long saga of getting my $2000 Galaxy Z Fold2 fixed

The unbelievable month-long saga of getting my $2000 Galaxy Z Fold2 fixed

I have strong feelings on foldables—I think they're the future, but I also think you should absolutely not buy one right now. As cool as foldables phones like the Galaxy Z Fold2 might be, the technology is still very new. These phones are expensive and prone to more hardware issues than traditional flat phones. Because I am a giant nerd with questionable decision-making skills, I bought a Galaxy Z Fold2 for $2,000 shortly after release in spite of all this. It was great! Until it needed a repair. It's been a month now, and I still don't have the phone back, thanks to the combined incompetence of UPS and Samsung.
