Galaxy J7 Max, J7 Pro come with “Social Camera”, Samsung Pay

While most eagerly await the new, and sometimes crazy, features in Samsung's flagship smartphones, users in India are treated to just as much innovation in the company's mid-range J series.

Galaxy S8, S8+ custom Android ROMs for those who dare to root

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and its larger Galaxy S8+ sibling are arguably two of the best-looking, and best-performing smartphones this half of the year. But as great as they are, they are by no means perfect.
