Earlier this month, T-Mobile launched a BOGO promo for the Galaxy S8, but Samsung has now introduced its own, still catered specifically for those on T-Mobile. Somewhat interestingly, though, it’s not the same exact deal and I’d suggest anyone considering opt for Samsung’s option… but, only if you can afford it. (more…)
We’re fully expecting AT&T to sell a Samsung Galaxy S8 Active at some point soon because they always nab an exclusive of Samsung’s Galaxy S Active line. Thanks to a listing posted to the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), the group in charge of Qi wireless charging standards, we may have our first look at the device. (more…)
Back in early February, pre-orders went up for the Chromebook Plus, the first to launch from a pair of Samsung-made Chrome OS laptops with Android app compatibility. Both were announced during CES, but as you may have noticed, we’re still waiting on the Chromebook Pro to launch. During Google I/O this week, we have learned just when we can expect the Pro version to be available. (more…)
I’m still using the regular Google Pixel on that daily grind.
Samsung made a phone that I just told you was the best phone you could buy today. The Galaxy S8 (and S8+) still is, in my opinion. Nothing has changed on that front. It’s just not the phone for me.

The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ on AT&T are receiving updates today that should address the red tint issues some owners have complained about. This would be the same update that T-Mobile pushed out just over a week ago.
The update weighs in at roughly 480MB and arrives as the exact same build as the one pushed to T-Mobile S8 and S8+ units. You should receive G950USQU1AQDE on the S8 and Q955USQU1AQDE on the S8+. (more…)
The US unlocked versions of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are now available for pre-order from Best Buy as expected, as well as Samsung.com. The regular Galaxy S8 costs $725, while the bigger S8+ runs $825. Those prices are actually about $25 cheaper than you’ll find at most carriers.
These versions of the phones work on all US carriers (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint) out of the box and are no different in terms of features than those you’d find from carriers. You’ve got the same specs (camera, processor, display, storage, etc.) and design, though you will only find the black version to buy. (more…)
