Once upon a time, Samsung had two styluses. One was the ever popular S-Pen that could only be found in the company's Note line of devices. The other was a less known, almost forgotten C-Pen, which was, practically, just a Samsung-branded capacitive stylus of the rubbery stub kind. It seems that Samsung will try to revive that C-Pen but also give it a lot more powers this time around. Spotted from a retailer listing a new kind of C-Pen that toted Bluetooth connectivity and a narrower, almost ballpoint-like tip.

Galaxy S7 deals: The best price for Samsung’s flagship release

While almost immediately after the Samsung Galaxy S7 was revealed, we had pricing, it's quickly become apparent that carriers aren't going to leave themselves in a position to be outbid. T-Mobile, for example, is just one mobile device carrier inside the USA that's begun the war with a buy-one-get-one deal. As if the next-generation bits and pieces of the Galaxy S7 and/or Galaxy S7 Edge weren't already enough. Of course T-Mobile's situation here includes a rebate, so it's not as if you're getting a device entirely for free right out the gate. First you have to pay for it - you've also got to add a line for this deal to be able to work.

Samsung reveals its own 12MP Dual Pixel image sensor

By now, the Galaxy S7's main camera story has already been narrated to death. It went from 16 megapixels in the Galaxy S6 down to 12 megapixels.

Recent teardowns have revealed that camera sensor to be from Sony, but now Samsung is revealing its own similar image sensor, but with an additional talent you curiously won't find in the Galaxy S7.

Galaxy S7 screen makes repairs extremely difficult

Galaxy S7 screen makes repairs extremely difficult

In many fables and fairy tales, a common theme is how beauty, whether natural or acquired, comes at a price. It seems that is also applicable with smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy S7 takes the fancy premium look of its predecessor, adds a few more curves at the back, and dishes a good amount of waterproofing. While those features are indeed mighty tasty, they unfortunately come with a compromise for the user down the line. iFixit has finally shared their teardown adventure and, to put it bluntly, it was a repairability nightmare.
