Samsung is blocking Bixby remapping apps for the Galaxy S8 again, starting with the recent T-Mobile update

Ever since the Galaxy S8 came out, Samsung has been trying to push Bixby onto owners. Given how Bixby isn't any more useful than Google Feed or Google Assistant, how the English voice assistant still isn't out, and how the button is unable to be disabled, many have turned to remapping apps. Samsung already attempted to block these apps once, but clever developers found a way around that pretty quickly. Now, starting with yesterday's T-Mobile update, Samsung has blocked Bixby remapping apps yet again.

Latest T-Mobile Galaxy S8 and S8+ update allows nav bar to be hidden, loses black fill option

One of the Galaxy S8's highlights is its extremely long 18.5:9 AMOLED display. It allows for more content while reading, as well as easier multitasking. However, the software keys on the bottom can cannibalize a bit of that screen real estate. Samsung's solution? Add a little button on the side of the screen that allows users to hide them at the touch of a button. Unfortunately, this feature addition also takes something that I never thought of as a feature: the black nav bar.

Three years after release, T-Mobile updates the LG G3 with bug fixes and newer security patches

The LG G3 was a pretty good phone when it was released in 2014. It had a Snapdragon 801 processor, a 5.5" 1440p display, 3GB of RAM, and a 3,000mAh removable battery. I expect the number of people still using the G3 in 2017 is pretty small, but if you're still hanging in there (and you're on T-Mobile), you have an update waiting for you.

Moto Z2 Force will likely come to AT&T, according to a leak

If Motorola was a boat, it would already be at the bottom of the ocean with all these leaks. If you're not familiar with the company's current lineup, the existing Moto Z Force is a more durable version of the Z with a "Shattershield" screen (from the DROID Turbo 2). We already know what the Z2 Force will look like, but now it seems like it will come to AT&T.

As you may know, the existing Z Force is a Verizon exclusive in the United States, carrying the 'Moto Z2 Force Droid' name.

[Deal Alert] Verizon has Pixel for $15/month ($360) and Pixel XL for $20/month ($480) with free Google Home, plus other big discounts

Verizon isn't known for having the best prices so much as it is for great coverage, but that doesn't mean it can't offer up some good deals once in a while. Big Red currently has the Pixel and Pixel XL for just $15 and 20 per month, respectively, and it's throwing a free Google Home in. There are also some other nice deals available, such as the Moto Z Play Droid for $5/month and the LG Stylo 2 V for free.

Moto E4 is out today, available at Republic Wireless, Ting, and Amazon

The announcement for the Moto E4 earlier this month had us pretty psyched. There's a lot to love about the phone, as the specifications for Motorola's latest E series devices are great for the price. And, now the wait to get your own is over. As of today, you can pick up the Moto E4 at carriers like Republic Wireless and Ting, and you can even buy it unlocked directly from Amazon for use with other carriers. There is no word yet on the power capacious Moto E4 Plus, so if you were holding out for that, the wait continues.

The Moto X4 might be coming to Project Fi

Project Fi is a pretty good carrier if you don't use much cellular data, as it only charges $20/month for the base service and $10 per GB used. But only Google's own devices can be activated on the network, and now that the age of Nexus is over, the only choice is a $650+ phone. To fill the network's mid-range gap, Project Fi announced yesterday that a new device "from a partner" would arrive later this year.

Project Fi confirms a mid-range device from a partner will come later this year

Earlier today Project Fi made a tweet that revealed a future mid-range phone will be coming to the network later this year. The tweet came in response to a statement made about the Nexus 5X, which was one of the last affordable phones available to use on Project Fi. Right now the Pixel and Pixel XL are the only phones that work with Project Fi currently in stock, and given the age of the Nexus 6P and 5X, it could be that neither will return.

Verizon's Exynos-based Galaxy Tab S2 updated to Android 7.0 Nougat

Samsung is far from the best company when it comes to product names (remember the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch?). In a similar vein, there are actually two tablets called the Galaxy Tab S2 - one released in 2015 with an Exynos processor, and another in 2016 with a Snapdragon chip. Verizon's Snapdragon model already received an Android 7.0 update, and now it's the Exynos model's turn.
