Samsung may have unveiled some fancy new phones yesterday, but that doesn't mean the old ones are any less good. The Galaxy S10+ was released last spring, and now it's on sale for a mere $549.99 at eBay. Samsung still sells the US version for around $850, so this is a solid discount on a device with 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Samsung's Galaxy Note series offers some of the best specs and biggest screens you'll find on a smartphone. When we reviewed the Note9 back in 2018, we called it "the best smartphone you can buy." Even though it's no longer the new kid on the block, it's still a great package that includes a Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage — and you can pick up a manufacturer refurbished model on eBay for just $389.99 right now.
Perhaps the biggest gripe many of us still have with Samsung’s interface is the sheer amount of unnecessary and duplicate apps that come preinstalled on Galaxy phones. While the count has come down a bit over the years, we're still looking at a lot of redundancy. That could be further toned down in the future as Google and Samsung are reportedly in the process of cutting a deal to promote Google Assistant and the Play Store over Bixby and the Galaxy Store.
Phone launches have been complicated as of late by the in-person infeasibility of large-scale presentations thanks to COVID-19. A few months back, we reported that Samsung was planning to launch its upcoming Galaxy Note20 in a special online event rather than the typical press conference. Now new sources are indicating that the Note20 unveiling event is going to take place on August 5, with the device going on sale a few weeks later on August 21.
Like most companies, Samsung would just love it if you were to buy as many of its products as possible. And to help entice you to stay in the Samsung ecosystem, it offers shoppers the opportunity to earn Samsung Rewards points that can be redeemed for even more Samsung gear. Now the company is introducing a new way to earn and spend Samsung Rewards points through gaming on the Galaxy Store.
Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Watch 3 has been leaking like crazy recently. It first went through the FCC back in May, and then a report claimed that Samsung would announce the watch at an event in July. And now it looks like we're getting some even more specific confirmation of that announcement date thanks to a leaked product render.

With the Galaxy S20 series starting a thousand dollars, many cash-strapped Samsung fans are probably considering more affordable upgrade options this year. And apparently, Samsung anticipated this (and if it didn't, it sure knows now), as it's making more of its low-end and mid-range lineup available in the US than ever before. Not only did it give last year's S10 series a price cut while continuing to keep it on sale alongside the S20, but it also debuted the Galaxy S10 Lite in America, adding yet more choices to its growing smartphone portfolio.
But Samsung has dug even deeper into bag o' phones, with the mid-range and mid-range-plus Galaxy A51 and A71.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones includes some of the best-selling Android handsets you can get. Last year, our own David Ruddick even said he'd pick it over the Pixel 3 XL in his review of the device. Now you can grab one for yourself for the low price of just $568 with this exclusive promo code.
Broken displays often end up being the death sentence for old phones, so in a great marketing move that's also good for the environment, Sprint has decided to offer $50 repairs for shattered Samsung Galaxy screens. The deal is valid regardless of your carrier and will run through February 9 or while supply lasts. To take advantage of it, you need to drop in at a nearby Sprint shop.
