Galaxy Fold gets a dedicated video on how to take care of it

When was the last time you've seen an instructional or even just promotional video about how to take care of a smartphone? Those may have been common back in 2009 when the first ones were still coming out of the market but, these days, it is presumed that almost everyone knows the basics of protecting a phone from an early, accidental death. Samsung made that mistaken presumption a few months back so now it isn't taking any chances with a short video on what not to do with the world's second commercially available foldable phone.

Galaxy A80 flipping camera is built for abuse

Galaxy A80 flipping camera is built for abuse

These days, smartphones compete on two major aspects. One is the number and quality cameras on their backs and the other is the lack of bezels on the front. Samsung presented a rather unique and at the same time odd proposal to solve both of those in the Galaxy A80 that combines popup cameras and rotating cameras in an unusual way. Novelty, however, sometimes comes at the cost of stability and especially durability, which is something for JerryRigEverything to put to the test.

Samsung PCIe Gen4 SSDs boast three software innovations

In the data storage market, bigger and faster are often seen as the hallmarks of a winning product. But in this day and age where almost everything important is stored digitally, data storage products need to go beyond those two raw features.

Galaxy Note 10+ 5G unsurprisingly tops DxOMark’s revised benchmarks

Another Samsung flagship, another round of "awards" given to the device. Although it isn't true for all new premium phones, Samsung's and Apple's new phones often get top marks from DxOMark and DisplayMate for their cameras and screens, respectively. Thankfully for new and would-be owners, Galaxy Note 10+ 5G does continue the trend as far as DxOmark is concerned and that's true even when the benchmarking site revised its rules to include the latest trends in the smartphone market.

Galaxy S and Galaxy Note merger now makes more sense

Galaxy S and Galaxy Note merger now makes more sense

For the past two years or so, there have been rumors of Samsung either merging the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines or axing the latter. Galaxy Note users find that proposal almost unacceptable, especially considering it might involve "downgrading" their beloved line to a smartphone without an S Pen. But considering Samsung's trends from the past years, that might actually be the inevitable and best outcome, provided it does make one concession towards lovers of the productive and creative stylus.

Galaxy Fold second pre-order to kick off early due to high demand

When Samsung delayed the launch of the Galaxy Fold due to "unforeseen" problems, there were some doubts it would be able to fully recover.

Despite those odds, and at least according to Samsung's numbers, demand for the Galaxy Fold has been so high that the company is forced to bump up its second pre-order batch earlier than planned.

Galaxy Fold has optimized apps from Microsoft, Amazon, and Google

Foldable phones like the Samsung Galaxy Fold and to some extent dual-screen phone like the LG G8X ThinQ push the boundaries of smartphone factors. The downside to such novelty is that the platform and its apps may not exactly be designed to accommodate the new use cases foldable and dual-screen phones open up. That is why, on the day of its launch in South Korea, Samsung is assuring current and would-be owners of its expensive and now rare Galaxy Fold that they won't be left fumbling in the dark with apps that have been updated to take advantage of the new breed of device.
