Samsung One UI, Android 9 Pie beta and launch dates announced

Samsung One UI, Android 9 Pie beta and launch dates announced

The much-criticized Samsung TouchWiz UX is dead. And soon, so will the short-lived “Samsung Experience”. At its now famous Samsung Developer Conference, the Korean manufacturer announced its upcoming One UI, the user experience that will, among other things, also run on its foldable smartphone. This UI will be based on Android 9 Pie, whose beta testing phase will start very soon. Amusingly enough, most people will still probably call it “TouchWiz” anyway.

Galaxy S10 design leaked in Android Pie Beta

Galaxy S10 design leaked in Android Pie Beta

It would seem as though Samsung's yearly leak of their next headline device occurred once again. As the Galaxy S7's Android Nougat beta showed the S8, the S8's Oreo beta showed the S9. Now the S9's Android Pie seems to be showing a graphic version of the Samsung Galaxy S10. This software appears on Android Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 devices in the Samsung Experience Beta program right this minute.

Galaxy S9 Android Pie to bring dock-less Samsung DeX

Galaxy S9 Android Pie to bring dock-less Samsung DeX

It seems that some Pie won’t be the only sweet thing that the next Android update will bring to Samsung’s early 2018 flagships. Even if the Galaxy Note 9 launched with the same Android 8.1 Oreo version, the latter smartphone runs a more recent version of Samsung’s custom Experience and, as such, had a few exclusive perks. But according to the latest leaks of the upcoming beta, the Galaxy S9 will soon be on equal footing, getting features like a Samsung DeX that needs no docks.

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

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. The Galaxy S10 will be marketed as the next big thing from Samsung, and the home to some wild or otherwise impressive features. But do you want it first, or do you want it finessed?

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.

Samsung Galaxy S9 given hearty Amazon discount on Note 9 release day

Just as the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was released today, Samsung seemed to put the Galaxy S9 on sale on Amazon. The price, as of some point in the last few hours today, was dropped from a standard $719.99 down to $619.99 - with free shipping so long as you're using Amazon Prime. What's more, there's a bit of a discount on the Galaxy S8, making it several hundred dollars cheaper than today's new Note 9. Why would Samsung do such a thing?

Galaxy Note 9 tipped bringing a gift (you choose)

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.

Keep your old phone and buy a new tablet

Keep your old phone and buy a new tablet

I need to get this message out to the world because it's apparent there's a bit of a break between sense and common sense going on right this minute. Over the past few weeks, I've witnessed a trend. People keep buying new smartphones when what they really want, what they don't realize they'd be better off with, is a brand new tablet - or even a used tablet, for crying out loud. Let's talk about why.
