Samsung Galaxy A6+ review: One step forward, two steps back

The Galaxy A6+ is a phone without an identity.

Samsung launched the Galaxy A series back in 2014 as a way of bridging the gap between the flagship Galaxy S line and the budget-focused Galaxy J series. From the onset, the Galaxy A series was targeted at a younger audience, with Samsung focusing on design and camera as the two main differentiators.

Over the last two years, Samsung introduced water resistance as well as Samsung Pay to  [Read More…]

Some Samsung users can’t edit app permission alerts for Facebook apps

Affected apps include Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp.

In Android Oreo on Samsung’s Galaxy phones, one of the new features included with the update is something called “App Permission Monitor.” With this, you can choose to get a notification when applications in the background are using certain permissions (like your microphone, camera, etc.) that you may not be aware of otherwise.

It’s a great tool and can be genuinely useful at times, but for whatever reason, some  [Read More…]

Caseology Parallax Case for Samsung Galaxy S9+ review: Mesmerizing mid-range protection

Caseology’s hybrid case brings depth, drama, and drops of sweat to your Galaxy S9+.

Lightweight cases like the Ringke Air Prism and Spigen Liquid Crystal are great for showing off the Samsung Galaxy S9’s gorgeous glass back, but lightweight cases also mean light protection, and sometimes we just need more durability than that. Caseology’s Parallax Case for the Samsung Galaxy S9+ offers dual-layer protection without sacrificing style, covering its dark TPU back with a shallow triangular texture  [Read More…]

Here’s how Samsung can make the S Pen a standout feature again with the Note 9

It’s the one true differentiator of the Note line, and there’s room for improvement.

Samsung’s Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines have converged over the past three generations, to the point where very little differentiates the two lines. The one true standout feature of the Note line is the S Pen, which really has no competition in the market — but even still, it hasn’t fundamentally changed since the Galaxy Note 5, leaving even Note fans clamoring  [Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy On6 review: Old wine, new bottle

Samsung’s latest budget phone is underwhelming to say the least.

The one constant in the Indian handset segment over the years has been Samsung. The last five years saw local manufacturers like Micromax, Intex, and Lava fade into obscurity as they failed to meet the challenge put forth by their Chinese rivals, but Samsung has weathered the storm unscathed.

Sure, the South Korean manufacturer is no longer India’s top smartphone brand, but its market share is still  [Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy X rumor roundup

Samsung’s foldable Galaxy smartphone has been in the rumor mill for ages. The idea itself dates back to 2011 when the Korean tech giant launched a concept video of a fully bendable and transparent mobile device. During the same year, the Galaxy-maker created a new touch AMOLED display prototype that could be folded up to 100,000 times.

Samsung has been experimenting with the concept ever since. In mid-2015, word surfaced that the company was hard at work on an upcoming  [Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy Watch rumors: Release date, specs, price, and features!

The Galaxy Watch could be Samsung’s best and boldest smartwatch yet — here’s why.

It’s been a hot minute since Samsung released the Gear S3, and while the Gear Sport did a nice job at holding us over for a while longer, it’s time we get a proper sequel to one of 2016’s best smartwatches.

The rumor mill suggests that this year will see Samsung release the successor we’ve been longing for, but instead of a traditional  [Read More…]

Ringke Onyx Case for Samsung Galaxy S9+ review: Hello darkness, my old friend

It’s not the boldest case on the block, but sometimes subtle style is best.

I’ll admit it: I’ve been spoiled by gold colors and flashy fashions. When I go looking for a phone case, I want something that stands out, but far more often, cases are designed to blend in. Subtle cases allow our phones to draw less unwanted attention when using our gleaming $ 800 smartphones in crowded areas, and they fit a larger variety of  [Read More…]

Samsung Chromebook Plus (V2) review: Everything you need

Samsung’s new Chromebook Plus comes with some big changes for 2018.

The Samsung Chromebook Plus was 2017’s best overall Chromebook for most of us. It came with enough power to do all those Chromebook things we want to do, a good keyboard and trackpad, an amazing display and best of all, a reasonable price tag. There were more powerful Chromebooks released last year, and there were cheaper Chromebooks released last year. But the overall value  [Read More…]
