Samsung TV Plus streaming app comes to some Galaxy phones

It's no secret that Samsung wants to build its own empire that encompasses nearly every aspect of modern life. With its hands inside the consumer electronics cookie jar, it is almost close to achieving that dream but falls a bit short when it comes to the content for some of those devices. It doesn't have its own entertainment arm yet, unlike Sony or Apple, but its Samsung TV Plus is as close it has gotten. Now that streaming service is coming to its smartphones but you will need one of the company's most recent and most expensive to get it.

Galaxy S20 FE prices and hands-on video leak ahead of launch

The Galaxy S20, particularly the Ultra variant, was panned for being excessive and while the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, in particular, stepped back a bit, it was still regarded to be too much. Sales of Samsung's flagships might be seeing a downward trend this year but the company's revenues might still be salvaged by what could actually be its best smartphone of 2020, the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition or FE.

LG Wing 5G vs Galaxy Z Fold2 5G: Should you swivel or continue to fold

Foldable and dual-screen phones have come a long way but there hasn’t been too much that has changed intrinsically. LG is bent at making heads turn with its new Wing 5G that is arguably the strangest dual-display phone we’ve seen. Samsung is the pioneer - it knows how to make high-end phones that fold and are still worth the money, and that extends to the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, which is already being pegged as one of the finest smartphones this year. Yet, it’s the LG Wing with a dual-screen that swivels, offering a very different perspective to multitasking than the dual-display of maybe the Microsoft Surface Duo or the Z Fold2 for that matter, which will polarize opinions.
