Two weeks after the Galaxy S10 line received its stable One UI 2.0 build, it’s time for the Galaxy Note10 and Note10+ to get the latest Android flavor. According to a report by SamMobile, the two late-2019 Samsung flagships are receiving the Android 10 update in Germany, although the rollout is limited to a small group of beta testers. This stable release follows a five-round beta testing that concluded just a couple of days ago. Read More
The last few years have seen Samsung (and other) flagships inch closer to the $1000 mark, virtually vacating the $600-700 segment where devices like the OnePlus 7 Pro and iPhone XR mushroomed. These flag-bearers of the affordable flagship category soon garnered a rather widespread appeal, naturally leaving Samsung wanting a piece of the pie. Rumors say that the South Korean tech giant could be working on a pair of Lite models — the Galaxy Note10 Lite and the S10 Lite — that will possibly strike the right balance between premium features and affordability.

Samsung One UI is the company's custom flavor of Android, with a different design and added features compared to regular stock Android. Samsung introduced it last year as the company's version of Android 9 Pie, and now that Android 10 has arrived, One UI 2.0 is rolling out to a lot of Samsung phones.
One UI 2.0 isn't the massive design overhaul that the original One UI was, but it does manage to add a few new features — some based on stock Android 10 functionality, and some entirely new options. These are the best features in Samsung One UI 2.0. Read More
The Galaxy Store began as the black sheep of the Android store family, offering little incentive to use it and existing as almost entirely bloatware. As with most of Samsung's first-party efforts, that's slowly changed over the last few years, with One UI's rollout being extremely well received and One UI 2.0 just around the corner for most. Samsung has brought its flagship store's design up to date with the latest version release, introducing a One UI-themed storefront along with dark mode and a few aesthetic changes that bring it in line with the rest of its apps.

The Galaxy Note10 and Note10+ don’t share their luck with the Galaxy S10 series that recently got its OS bumped to stable Android 10. Samsung’s newest flagship series is nearly midway through its beta cycle and just got its fourth One UI 2.0 beta build. The new incremental update weighing around 550MB squashes a long list of pestering bugs. Read More
Back in 2012, Samsung embedded Flipboard in its launcher, making news seamlessly accessible from the home screen. The company then used Upday on newer phones, until it released Bixby Home when it launched the Galaxy S8. In addition to being a simple news aggregator, the latter aimed at being a smarter assistant, with cards showing your next appointments, or even letting you order an Uber. However, the company has just announced it will replace Bixby Home with Samsung Daily, its new homescreen newsfeed app. Read More
Every year Samsung unfailingly puts out a software release roadmaps for its entire smartphone lineup, and this year’s detail when Android 10 is expected to hit eligible Samsung phones. These lists are generally specific to their respective markets, but they do highlight a general global trend. The Galaxy S10 and the Note 10 have been beta testing One UI 2.0 for over a month now, and they’re naturally first in line to get the stable release by January 2020. Read More
Just a day after the sixth One UI 2.0 beta update came out for the Galaxy S10 series, another one has been released. As Samsung races to the finish line toward a final stable build of Android 10, a few more bugs are getting squashed along the way.
In less than a week after releasing the fourth One UI 2.0 beta, Samsung has pushed out another one for Galaxy S10 owners. As usual, a bunch of bugs have been fixed, and the list appears to be getting shorter as the beta program shows signs of winding down. Samsung also made an announcement on its Korean forum announcing the start of the Android 10 beta program for Galaxy S9 and Note 9 devices. Read More
