Everyone, and we mean everyone, has some sort of established smartphone series. By this, we’re talking about the many distinguished smartphones series’ that have accumulated a potent lineage throughout the years. Names like Apple’s iPhone, the OnePlus series, and Samsung’s own Galaxy S smartphones all come to mind and have remained relevant – partly because they’ve been tuned to cater to the widest degree of people possible. However, if we’re to think of a series that defied the trends in order to etch out its own destiny, there’s one that comes to mind. And it was a big step up in every facet. We’re talking about none other than the Samsung Galaxy Note series, the phone series that popularized the notion of what it’s like to be a big phone – the kind that amasses attention due to its sheer size. Before its arrival back in 2011, companies, for the most part, were trying to make phones smaller, more compact. So, when … [Read more...] about A history of Samsung’s Galaxy Note series

Have you heard? Samsung has announced new phones. In case you have not heard, here's an ad in your notification shade. It looks like this has happened to at least a few people thanks to the Samsung Push Service. In a separate incident, I myself have been served an ad by the bundled Peel remote app. Is nothing sacred anymore, Samsung? We were all aghast when HTC pushed that Fantastic Four ad to its users, but here Samsung is doing the same thing to some Samsung owners. The ad in question promotes the Galaxy S6 Edge+. The Samsung Push Service is supposed to provide notification support for Samsung's app—things like Samsung Pay, Samsung Link, and so on. I guess it can do ads too. My experience with the Peel remote app is a little different. This isn't a Samsung app, but it's one that is distributed as part of the stock Galaxy S6 software package. The ad it showed was for a TV program (sponsored by Land Rover) on Bravo. Tapping on it opened the Peel app so I could … [Read more...] about Samsung Appears To Be Pushing Notification Ads To Some Users

I had been eyeing the company since the original Galaxy S, checking what it's doing and waiting for it to be convincing before I dipped my toes and grabbed the S3. I liked the rounded design, even though everyone criticized it. I loved the powerful hardware too, but I hated TouchWiz. It took me two weeks to get fed up, root the phone, flash a custom recovery, and start trying different custom ROMs that removed some of the bloat and smoothed the experience. When the Galaxy S4 was announced and later the S5, I wasn't remotely convinced by them. They … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Review, Take 2: Not Only Convincing, But Nearing Perfection
April 18, 2018 - Written By Alexander Maxham Samsung Pay has now added support for Royal Bank of Canada’s debit and credit cards. It also supports the bank’s mobile payment system. So those that use Royal Bank of Canada or RBC, for their banking needs, can now use Samsung Pay. RBC customers will be able to add their cards to Samsung Pay beginning today, there’s no updated needed to the app to get started.With Samsung Pay, users are able to pay with their smartphone at a ton of different merchants. Most merchants support Samsung Pay, even more than Apple Pay and Google Pay. The reason behind that is the fact that Samsung uses MST for making payments, in addition to NFC. MST or Magnetic Secure Transmission, allows you to pay using the magnetic strip reader, that already reads regular credit and debit cards. Which means that virtually every point of sale system works with Samsung Pay. That’s definitely a good thing, and a great way to get more people using … [Read more...] about Samsung Pay Adds Support For Royal Bank of Canada
Samsung's Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus might be the best phones Samsung has ever made, and they're nearly here. On Friday, March 16, the company's new flagship handsets will bring their fancy new dual-aperture cameras (and stereo speakers!) to stores around the globe.But are they worth the upgrade if you already own a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S7, or even a recent Galaxy Note with stylus? That's why I built this guide. Just scroll down until you see the phone you own, and I'll take it from there. Note: If your Samsung phone isn't on this list, it's either old enough or has been outclassed enough that you should definitely consider an upgrade.Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 PlusThe Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus look an awful lot like their predecessors -- but don't be fooled. There are plenty of changes under the hood, even if Samsung kept fan-favorite features such as the headphone jack and microSD storage. But are any of these changes important enough for you to upgrade right away? … [Read more...] about Galaxy S9: Should you upgrade?
