Galaxy Note 9 update has hidden 120Hz display option

Galaxy Note 9 update has hidden 120Hz display option

The next big update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has a hidden setting that apparently switches between 60Hz and 120Hz refresh rate. This feature appears in the Beta release of Samsung's OneUI 2.0 update built on Android 10. Unfortunate for Samsung Galaxy Note 9 users, there's no possible way to enable 120Hz image refresh rate on a display that does not physically support such an option. But this feature wasn't made for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 - which is why it was hidden in the first place.*

Chrome will soon label slow-loading sites with badges

Chrome will soon label slow-loading sites with badges

There are a few things that can ruin an otherwise ideal web browsing experience. Malicious and misbehaving ads are the ones blamed most of the time but pages that load too slowly also waste your time and patience. Often, people will immediately presume it's either the connection or their device that's causing the slow experience but websites might also be unoptimized for today's browsers and use cases. That's why Google is planning on labeling sites that regularly load slowly so that you know that it's them and not you that's the problem.

Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10 on Android 10 beta need this DeX for PC app

One of the often-cited consequences of modifying an Android experience too much is that updates take longer to test. That's true not just for the Android experience on the phone itself but even for features that connect with external devices. That's what testers of the Android 10 Beta for Samsung's latest Galaxy flagships have discovered to their dismay. Worry not because Samsung has now made available a special version of the Samsung DeX app for PCs and Macs to address exactly that.
