International Dual-SIM Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+ are as low as $600

The Galaxy S10 was unveiled a month and a half ago, and we think it's one of the best phones on the market today. One of its drawbacks, though, is its price, which can reach $1,600 for the larger model. Thankfully, there are ways to pay less for Samsung's latest flagship, without having to buy a used or refurbished device. One option is to buy the international version on eBay, which lets you save about 20% on the S10e, S10, and S10+.

Galaxy S10+ appears to suffer major LTE signal and connectivity issues on some carriers

The Galaxy S10+ may be one of the best phones you can buy right now, but based on recent reports and our own testing, there's at least one metric where it falls behind: signal strength. It turns out that a combination of your carrier, the frequency you're connected to, and even going caseless can have a huge impact on the quality of its cellular connection, resulting in measurably lower signal strength compared to other recent phones in our testing.

[Update: Looking good for GS10 and GS10e, too] Magnetic phone mounts surprisingly play nice with Galaxy S10+ wireless charging

On most phones that feature wireless charging, you typically need to give up that convenience when installing a magnetic plate for phone mounts — or place the mount in a location where it works poorly to keep it.

Netflix adds HDR certification for Galaxy S10 lineup, HD support for Galaxy M-series and latest Snapdragon chipsets

Whenever a major new Android device debuts, Netflix tends to add HD and HDR certification to it. Of course, that's not always the case, but Samsung is too big a name to ignore.
