We're deep in the heart of the new phone season, which means discounts on last year's devices. Today brings us another deal for the Galaxy S7 from Samsung's own website. You can get the Sprint version of the phone for $299, which is a respectable $250 off. Oh, and you get a free 64GB SD card to go along with it. If you're more interested in a larger, curved screen, then the Sprint S7 edge is also on sale. You can grab one for $445 ($250 off again) and you get a 128GB SD card with this one. Read More

Earlier this evening in Barcelona, we had our first chance to look at the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge in the flesh. Unfortunately, it wasn't under ideal conditions, and I don't feel comfortable putting down a large number of thoughts about the devices just yet. We need some more time with them. But, we did manage to record a video demonstrating the phones, as well as snap a gallery of photos for your perusal, should you be so interested. We'll have a full hands-on of the S7 and S7 edge later this week, but for now, here's our first look at Samsung's new flagship duo. Read More
