True wireless earbuds are big business these days, and they’re especially popular since Apple released its to-be-seen-with AirPods. Samsung's first attempt at this product category in 2016 was a little disappointing, but the updated Gear IconX that came out the following year offered improved battery life, a redesigned case, and better connectivity. The $200 price tag was too high for what you got, but frequent discounts made them a slightly more viable prospect.
Fast-forward to 2019 and Samsung is back with its latest iteration. Galaxy Buds is already a far more appealing and marketable name. They also cost much less than their predecessors at $130, even undercutting the AirPods by a full $30. Read More
Samsung isn't afraid to experiment with different types of notches in its mid-range offerings — having tried it all, from a hole-punch in the Galaxy A8S, to a OnePlus 6T-esque sloping teardrop in the M20, to more traditional bezels in the A9. Two new devices were announced today, the Galaxy A30 and A50, featuring teardrop notches of the Infinity-U design Samsung revealed last fall. These phones are likely headed to the Indian market in the coming week. Read More
With its display covering almost the entire front surface, the Galaxy S10's design aims at being simple and clutter-free. Samsung's software, on the other hand, isn't necessarily popular for being sleek, as it noticeably changes Android's classic look and feel. The company has further customized its interface with the recent release of One UI, which looks nice, albeit different from the OS' standard appearance. Galaxy devices also come with extra apps, which are often useless and end up taking additional space. The latest flagships will be no exception as they'll come preloaded with McAfee's anti-malware bloatware. Read More
Electronics skins from dbrand. Why do you need one on your phone, laptop, console, or other devices? Well, they add grip, and a layer of protection against wear and tear, dings and scratches. Let's be honest though, you could accomplish that with some duct tape and a exact-o-knife if you wanted to get crafty. The things that set dbrand's skins apart are that they are perfectly cut to fit your device and –most importantly– they look freaking awesome. Read More
Samsung just announced its latest flagship Galaxy S phone lineup and the one thing most people tend to agree on is their relatively high price. The company is replicating Apple's strategy, with products growing increasingly expensive over the years, but is also offering a similar education markdown if you purchase through its online store.

At today's glitzy Unpacked event in San Francisco, Samsung unveiled a raft of new products, some of which are mostly aspirational for the time being. One device the company will hope to sell a boatload of in the coming months is the Galaxy S10e, a new cheaper variant in the popular series. It's a departure from the norm for Samsung, and a response to growing consumer unrest at the rising price of high-end flagship phones. It also serves to counter Apple's more affordable iPhone XR, obvious from the identical $749 starting price and variety of bright colors being made available. Read More
It seems Samsung won't have much to unveil during its Unpacked event tomorrow: Little is left to know about the Galaxy S10 lineup, and the screenshots from the company's Wearables app that leaked earlier this week shed more light on the upcoming Galaxy Buds and Watch Active. As if this wasn't enough, full press renders of the products have been published, revealing more about their features and design. Read More
Samsung's next Galaxy Unpacked event is fast approaching and we know the event will primarily focus on its flagship S10 series of phones. According to previous leaks and rumors, it's also likely that we'll see some new wearable devices on February 20, something Samsung has all but confirmed with an accidental leak. Read More
Samsung will unveil its new flagships on February 20, and the brand seems to acknowledge we already know almost everything about these devices, so much as to let you pre-order them now. The manufacturer has put up a page to let you reserve the "next Galaxy," on which it explicitly says it "know[s] you know what is coming soon," without sharing any details on the handsets themselves, besides the previously published teaser of a potential folding phone.
It is customary for the Korean company to offer savings for people who pre-order its newest handsets and this year is no exception: The reservation process in the US lets you benefit from a $50 credit on accessories for your new Galaxy and allows you to trade in your old phone for an additional discount of up to $550.

It may be the last major network operator in the US to push its Android 9 Pie update out to Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ units, but T-Mobile can at least boast the inclusion of support for RCS Universal Profile 1.0 with its build. Read More
