Android Pie update gives Galaxy S9, Note 9 a pretty Always On Display

Android Pie update gives Galaxy S9, Note 9 a pretty Always On Display

Early last week, firmware for Android 9 Pie and Samsung Experience 10 leaked for the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy Note 9. That leaked firmware showed us a host of new UI improvements coming along with Android Pie, but today we're learning of another UI change that wasn't immediately clear last week. Samsung, apparently, is planning to make some changes to the Always On Display, and the new version looks great.

The big Galaxy S10 release and why I’ll wait for the Note

This week we're having a peek at the Galaxy S10's various rumored features and explore reasons why you might want to wait for the Note. We're looking pretty far out into the future, here, so keep that in mind whilst perusing the details.

Why Galaxy S10 won’t displace Galaxy S9 in 2019

Why Galaxy S10 won’t displace Galaxy S9 in 2019

Rumored details about the next wave of Galaxy S smartphones this week suggest owners of the Galaxy S9 won't have reason enough to switch. Each year when Samsung's biggest rival, Apple, creates a "tock" to their "tick" year phone, it's largely due to the standard 2-year cycle for the average smartphone. Samsung's strategy, instead, seems to continue to revolve around a one-year flip. Today we'll talk about why the Galaxy S10 won't likely make the grade for buyers in 2018.

Galaxy S9+ with Android Pie: here’s what it will look like

Galaxy S9+ with Android Pie: here’s what it will look like

Having launched before Android Pie did, it’s not really surprising that the Galaxy S9 is still on Android 8.1 Oreo (the Galaxy Note 9 has fewer excuses). And given Samsung’s track record, it’s also unsurprising that it hasn’t been upgraded yet. That said, it’s good to hear that Samsung is actually already working on its Samsung Experience 10 based on Android Pie. Even better, it seems to be well on its way to being stable. Even better than better, Samsung is taking a few visual cues straight from Android Pie itself.

Galaxy S10 release date and tests tip Samsung’s fastest upgrade ever

The Samsung Galaxy S10 had details leaked in a set of benchmark results this week, showing the device as speedier than any Galaxy before. This device was shown as speedy in its processing power, but also speedy in its adoption of the newest version of Android.

Galaxy Note 9 tipped bringing a gift (you choose)

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 wasn't always going to feel like such a big-time release. At one point the Galaxy Note 9 was going to be a yearly bump in specs, bringing heat with a couple new S Pen features, maybe a new color. That's about it. Now, here just before the reveal and Galaxy Note 9 release date, Samsung's been tipped to bring all sort of incentives to the party.

How did OnePlus just beat Apple and Samsung?

How did OnePlus just beat Apple and Samsung?

A perfect storm of sales and big-name new phone releases made OnePlus win the quarter for premium device sales in India in Q2 2018. Apple's iPhone 8 and iPhone X are not currently in vogue as we're a few months away from a new launch, and Galaxy Note 9 is coming at the start of August - so that leaves OnePlus 6 to clean up, really. OnePlus took advantage of the day with promotions that work particularly well in India, too: EMI and cashback offers.
