TeamWin Recovery Project, or TWRP for short, is an invaluable tool for anyone looking to mod their device - from installing ROMs to simply making backups. The last time we covered the project earlier this month, it had started supporting the Moto Z2 Force, Redmi 5A, and several other phones.
Since then, a few more devices have been added to the roster, including the Honor View10 and Mate 10 Pro. Read More
When you consider that Samsung Internet Browser comes pre-installed on all of the Korean company's smartphones, this milestone might not seem so impressive. However, the web browser was recently opened up to all Android devices, regardless of the manufacturer, and it's clearly been popular enough with other users to take it over the 500 million installs mark on the Play Store.

Samsung fired up its own rewards program in late 2016 to promote Samsung Pay, and it later expanded to a few other products. Anyone who's been serious about earning points with Samsung Pay might notice something has changed. Samsung is now only offering half as many points for qualifying transactions. Read More
Samsung's own web browser used to be exclusive to its phones, but that was fine because no one really wanted to use it. More recently, Samsung has stepped up its game and made Samsung Internet a capable Chromium-based browser. After pushing v6.4 as a beta some weeks back, it's now stable with a few more features.

As with most high-profile upcoming smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S9 has seen its fair share of leaks as we approach its official unveiling at MWC 2018 in Barcelona. In recent weeks, we've learned that the Galaxy S9 and its bigger brother the S9+ will have iterative designs, be available in lilac and coral blue, come with 3D Emojis similar to the iPhone X, and we've already seen that the marketing around them will be focused on the camera(s).
The latest leaks come in the form of a range of official-looking renders, likely intended for a stockist's website. Read More
As we approach the February 25th launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9, it's become apparent that the USP for the Korean company's latest flagship will be its "reimagined" camera(s). Perhaps that's because there's little else to focus on in an iterative update with few outward-facing improvements that the marketing department can really do anything with. There is a chance, however, that there will be some truly exciting enhancements that could see the camera on new devices compete with the Pixels and iPhones of this world. Read More
The unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ is less than 2 weeks away, and thanks to the now customary series of leaks, we already know a fair amount about what to expect from the new flagship. Thanks to a report by Korean outlet ETNews, we potentially know a little bit more about a certain software feature that Samsung is preparing.
With the release of the iPhone X, Apple threw its substantial marketing clout behind a new animated emoji feature (Animojis) that mimics your facial expressions as you speak or sing. Apparently, Samsung has something similar up its sleeve for the Galaxy S9, and the report also mentions several other potential inclusions. Read More
For years, some Android manufacturers have been replacing the default emojis with their own set, usually to differentiate their devices. Samsung's set has always been bad, with several emojis showing completely different emotions than what is intended. The company has started rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo to its phones, and the included emojis are a much-needed improvement. Read More
TeamWin Recovery Project, better known as TWRP, is an invaluable tool for anyone looking to mod their device - from installing ROMs to simply making backups. The last time we covered TWRP, the project added support for the Razer Phone, Redmi 5, a handful of Galaxy Tab S2 models, and more. Over the past month, even more devices have been added to the official build roster, including Motorola's latest flagship. Read More
It's very rare that Android phones receive more than two years of major software updates. Google has even stuck to that rule in the past, with the Pixel 2 being the company's first phone with three years of promised Android updates. According to T-Mobile support pages, Samsung could be planning an Oreo update for its 2015 flagships. Read More
