Samsung makes a lot of phones, but the Galaxy S20 Ultra is right up there at the top. The high-end specifications and design add up to a premium experience, but one that also spells a steep price tag.

10 One UI productivity features you should be using on your Galaxy S20

Every year there seem to be plenty of articles discussing how to make your new Samsung phone feel like a Pixel. I even wrote one, for those of you who do want a Pixel-like experience. I don't necessarily think it's a good idea, however — if you want your phone to be like a Pixel, you should've bought a Pixel in the first place. It also gives the impression that One UI is terrible, or at least worse than stock Android. While some might agree with that, I certainly don't. In my opinion, One UI is the best flavor of Android out there, and it has lots of features and tricks that deserve more attention.

The best cheap Chromebooks that are actually in stock right now

The ongoing lockdowns around the world have caused an uptick in demand for computers, especially laptops. Chromebooks are incredibly popular for their ease-of-use and competitive pricing, so if you can accomplish everything using just a web browser (and you don't already have a spare PC that can do the job), they're certainly worth looking into.

All of the models we've selected come enough horsepower to handle at least a few Chrome tabs and applications running at once, and most of them have large 14/15-inch screens. We have a dedicated guide for the best Chromebooks overall, but this list is solely focused on budget options with large screens that are actually in stock right now.

Galaxy Note20 Ultra hands-on video gives us our best look at this behemoth

The same source that brought us photos of the Galaxy Note20 Ultra this week has gone ahead and made a video about it. There really isn't too much more to the video from @jimmyispromo than the pictures he's already posted to Twitter, but it does show a pretty realistic Samsung smartphone with an S Pen existing in human timespace.

It's official: Samsung will reveal the Galaxy Note20 on August 5th

On Wednesday, August 5th, Samsung is likely to reveal the long-expected Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra smartphones at a virtual event. Galaxy Unpacked 2020, as it's officially known, will begin at 10AM EST that morning via a video livestream. New models of Samsung's Galaxy Buds and a next-generation Galaxy Watch smartwatch are also expected to be formally launched at the event.

The Galaxy Note20 has been the subject of extensive leaks, and relatively little that is significant about the phone remains unknown. A higher-efficiency 120Hz display panel is rumored to debut on the super-premium Galaxy Note20 Ultra, while retaining the line's signature digitizer stylus and large format screens.

Samsung Good Lock updates bring new features to One Hand Operation +

Good Lock is one of my favorite parts of One UI, which is why I've droned on about it so many times. In short, Good Lock houses several modules that allow you to tweak your Samsung software experience, offering a degree of control that rival custom ROMs. Several of those modules just received new updates today, most of which are small bug fixes. However, One Hand Operation + got a more significant update, bringing some new features, as well.

Samsung ends security patches for Galaxy S7 Active and Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016)

Samsung is usually one of the better OEMs when it comes to releasing timely security patches for its phones, even beating Google to the punch at times. But even Samsung can only afford to keep older devices updated for so long. The company has recently revised its security update list with some changes, including ending patches for the Galaxy S7 Active, as well as changing some other older devices to a less frequent schedule.
