All the way back on June 29th, 2009, a little company named Samsung released a phone just called Galaxy (with no "S") running Google's brand new Android operating system.

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.

Samsung may have stopped limiting free theme usage on Android Pie

Over the years, Samsung has had some great ideas. The Note series pushed the industry to adopt larger screens, TouchWiz had one of the first implementations of multi-window, and Samsung Pay is one of the more versatile mobile payment solutions around. Its decision to begin pushing people to use paid themes by restricting free theme usage to two weeks was not one of those great ideas - and now it looks like that plan is being walked back.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 16GB LTE Verizon And AT&T Model On Sale At Best Buy For $279.99 - A Price Hotter Than A Snapdragon 810

Ok, I am going to keep this brief because I don't expect this deal to last long. In preparation for the imminent release of new Samsung tablets, Best Buy has the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4" 16GB LTE tablet at closeout prices. They are available with either AT&T or Verizon antennas for just $279.99.
