Samsung recently announced its new smartphones in the form of the Galaxy S20 series. These phones are by no means cheap, but the good news is that if you want to save some money and don’t necessarily need to have the latest or greatest smartphone (at the moment), Samsung has your back.
According to the rumors, Samsung is said to be working on “Lite” versions of its Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 series. It turns out the rumors were true because Samsung has since officially announced both the Galaxy S10 Lite and the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, both of which will be priced lower and more affordably than its “regular” counterparts.
A while back, there was a race to create a smartphone with the highest resolution possible. At one point in time, it felt like we could expect that smartphones with 4K displays to become the new standard, but for the most part, a lot of companies have stopped at QHD, with only a handful of smartphones sporting 4K screens.
As you might have heard, Samsung’s newer smartphones that use an in-display fingerprint sensor, have a vulnerability where it seems that using a cheap $3 screen protector is enough to fool it into unlocking for anyone. This has led to security concerns and as such, several banking institutions have started to blacklist the phone for the time-being from using their apps.
If you think that the only difference between the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Note 10 would be the S Pen, think again. There are some minor hardware differences, but there are also some differences in the software that help to set them apart from each other. Naturally, this means that there will be some features that some Galaxy S10 users will be missing, and vice versa.
Updates are usually viewed as a good thing where they bring about improvements, new features, and also fix bugs. However, they have also been known to cause problems from time to time, where the application of an update might cause problems that the developer might not have picked up on.
One of the features of the Google Pixel 3 is its Night Sight mode, which for those unfamiliar is a camera mode that when activated, will be able to take some pretty stunning low-light photos, the likes of which were previously not available on smartphones. This resulted in many other companies following suit with their own mode, like Samsung’s Bright Night.
The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is one of this year’s flagship smartphones that many have been looking forwards to. This is because over the years, Samsung has done a great job with their flagship phones where with every release, it has been met with a lot of praise. However, this year OnePlus has challenged the company with the OnePlus 7 Pro where it offers up near identical hardware specs but at […]
Updates are usually viewed in a positive light where they typically come with fixes for bugs, security flaws, and sometimes even come with new features. However, it seems that a recent update for the Samsung Galaxy S10 has caused more problems than it has fixed, leading to Samsung pulling the update.
Verizon is the first carrier in the United States to sell the 5G variant of the Galaxy S10. It has already been confirmed that Verizon will exclusively be selling this device initially. It will arrive on other carriers but Verizon will be the only place to get it at least for the foreseeable future.
We imagine that the snafu with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 catching on fire is probably still quite a sore spot for Samsung, and that the company has definitely learnt from their mistakes. However, we’re sure we can’t be the only ones to start feeling a bit uneasy whenever we hear reports about Samsung phones catching on fire.
Both the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Huawei P30 phones are currently the hottest smartphones in the market at the moment, both of which are offering the best both companies have to offer. Naturally, comparisons will be made, which is why PhoneBuff has put together a video that compares the speed of both phones.
One of the features of the Samsung Galaxy S10 is how it comes with a feature called Bright Night. For those unfamiliar, it is basically Samsung’s answer to Google’s Night Sight mode on its Pixel 3 smartphones, but the only problem is that it is an automated feature where it enables itself in extremely low-light situations.
While there have been reports about the Galaxy S10 phones having reception issues on multiple carriers, it appears that users on Sprint have been hit the hardest. The carrier’s subscribers have reported LTE issues with all three of the Galaxy S10 models and despite software updates to fix the problem, it appears that this hasn’t been enough. Sprint has now said that it’s going to replace these handsets.
According to a report from last week, it was rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G could be launching on Verizon next month, or to be more specific, it could be launching on the 16th of May. Now according to the folks at Android Headlines, they have managed to get their hands on a render of the upcoming handset that seemingly confirms the release date.
One of the features of the Samsung Galaxy S10 is the use of an in-display fingerprint sensor. What makes this different from other in-display sensors is that Samsung is said to have used Qualcomm’s fingerprint sensor which relies on ultrasonic technology. This is said to be more secure compared to regular fingerprint scanning, but maybe it isn’t quite foolproof yet.
At Samsung’s Unpacked event in February, the company announced their lineup of Galaxy S10 smartphones. Included as part of the lineup is the Galaxy S10 5G, which as the name implies is the 5G variant of the phone. Verizon had announced that they would be the first carrier in the US to offer the handset, but stopped short of actually confirming a date.
When Samsung announced their lineup of Galaxy S10 smartphones, one of the models that was announced is the Galaxy S10e which is supposed to be the “budget” model of the Galaxy S10 lineup. As a budget model, we expected that Samsung would “compromise” on certain aspects of the phone, and one of those features is the heart rate sensor.
Recently Samsung had confirmed that later this month, pre-orders for its 5G variant of the Samsung Galaxy S10 would be going up for pre-order. The carrier did not mention how much the handset would cost, although some did express some worry that the inclusion of 5G could drive up the price of the phone.
When you buy a phone, the most important thing is whether or not it can work. This is because while our phones can do a lot these days, at the end of the day, they are still a tool for communications which means that they need to be able to hook into a carrier’s network, access data, make phone calls, and so on.
