Samsung’s $400 trade-in deal is back: get a Note 8 or Galaxy S8

Samsung has brought back its $400 trade-in promotion, giving customers a way to get a substantial discount on the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and the Galaxy Note 8 smartphones. This isn't the first time Samsung has offered this deal -- in fact, it was available as recently as Black Friday. A look at Samsung's trade-in website shows that the $400 savings offer is back, you'll just need an acceptable phone to swap in.

Pixel 2 XL screen problems VS iPhone 8 Plus, LG V30, Galaxy Note 8

Over the past few days a bit of controversy popped up over the display on the Pixel 2 XL. The most common issue seen in descriptions of the device seems to have to do with the device's coloring and/or texture. Our own review by Chris Davies said that the display on the Pixel 2 XL is "muted and blue-tinged off-axis."

Apple Pencil for iPhone 12 tipped in Korea

Apple Pencil for iPhone 12 tipped in Korea

A new tip on Apple's stylus-laden future has come to light, this time making a play for the next-generation iPhone. We're so extremely far away from the next iPhone right now that I'm taking a total stab in the dark with the name iPhone 12 - it could also be the iPhone Pro, or the iPhone 11 (even though X is 10, and 11 should then come in 2018, and this device is tipped for 2019). The more important point right this minute is the suggestion that the next iPhone might have its own stylus, not unlike the Apple Pencil.

Galaxy Note 8 is already breaking Samsung sales records

It would seem that Samsung has a hit on its hands in the Galaxy Note 8. Pre-order numbers all around the world were very encouraging, and today, Samsung revealed that the Galaxy Note 8 broke sales records when it went on sale in the UK and Ireland last weekend. Though we don't have specific sales numbers, Samsung does claim that the Note 8 has been the "most successful" launch to date.

Samsung just made the Bixby button even more pointless

Samsung just made the Bixby button even more pointless

Speaking as a Galaxy S8 owner, I have to say that the phone is great, save for one rather annoying feature: the Bixby button. Not only is its usefulness wasted on me - someone who doesn't have much interest in Bixby - but it's also located in one of the most frustrating places. If you find yourself in the same boat, then take heart, because a new update is letting you fix those problems.

Galaxy Note 8 Sale Uber Alles OR Why I’ll wait for iPhone X

Galaxy Note 8 Sale Uber Alles OR Why I’ll wait for iPhone X

Both Samsung and Apple have new smartphones out for sale today, and I've got some opinions about which one I'd choose. If I wanted to pay the smallest amount of money for a top-notch 2017 smartphone (not considering the Google Pixel), I'd have to go with the iPhone 8, which is around $700, on pre-order starting today. If I wanted the most impressive hero phone this year and I needed to order right this minute, I'd choose the Galaxy Note 8.

Galaxy Note 8 pre-orders beat all other Notes

Galaxy Note 8 pre-orders beat all other Notes

It would seem that the Galaxy Note 8 is on its way to being a success. Last week, pre-order numbers began surfacing from South Korea and showed us that interest was outpacing that of the Galaxy Note 7. Today, we're getting a more complete picture of Note 8 pre-orders, and they paint a rather pleasant picture for Samsung, which had a lot riding on this release.

Galaxy Note 8 preorder sales beat 7 (so far)

Galaxy Note 8 preorder sales beat 7 (so far)

As of the publication of this article, Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 has out-sold every Galaxy Note smartphone before it. Over this same period of time (since announcement), more people have pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 than any other smartphone in the Galaxy Note lineup. This is a relief, I'm sure, to those at Samsung worried that last year's Galaxy Note 7 fiasco would dent the line's future sales.

Galaxy Note 8 teardown discovers surprisingly modular components

Just a few days after delivering its teardown of the Essential Phone, iFixit is back on the scene again to crack open the Galaxy Note 8. By now, we have an idea of what to expect from these flagship teardowns: fragile components and a lot of glue. The Galaxy Note 8 seems to be no different in that regard, offering a package that's difficult to get into.

The anticipated Galaxy Note 8 was finally announced this week, marking the return of Samsung's impressive phablet device after last year's Note 7 debacle. Of course, those who had to give up the recalled Note 7 were already offered other Samsung flagships in exchange, but for those still faithful to the brand the company is offering a significant discount on the new Note 8.
