We hope that you like the look of the Galaxy Note 8, because it seems as though it will be more of the same when the Galaxy Note 9 launches early next month. Like the transition from the Galaxy S8 to the Galaxy S9, there are very little design changes to speak of with the Galaxy Note 9 according to a new image leak. You'd have to pull out a magnifying glass to spot any real changes, and it appears that the hardware in the top bezel (cameras, sensors, etc.) is identical. About the only noticeable change that we can tell is a slightly smaller bottom chin/bezel. As we saw in earlier... Read more...
So far this year, LG has debuted a couple of high-end Android smartphones in the form of the G7 ThinQ and the V35 ThinQ. For those that don't have $750 or $900 respectively to throw down on a new smartphone, LG has heard you loud and clear. Enter the Q Stylus, which as its name implies, comes with a standard pen for taking notes, drawing or doing markup on webpages or other content. Think of the Q Stylus as a "budget" alternative to the expensive Samsung Galaxy Note 8. The smartphone features a 6.2-inch FHD+ (2160x1080) 18:9 display, a single 16MP rear camera, 8MP selfie camera,... Read more...
Updated 3/31/2018: T-Mobile has confirmed that its Galaxy Note8 Android Oreo update will be distributed to customer starting April 1st... and no, it's not a joke. If you are a Galaxy Note 8 owner in the United States, we've got some exciting news for you. The Android 8.0 Oreo update is finally rolling out to owners, with those on AT&T and Verizon being the first recipients of the yummy, crunchy treat. Earlier this week, Samsung said that the update would be rolling out within 2 to 3 weeks, so it looks as though AT&T and Verizon decided to jump the gun (not that we're complaining). It remains...

Samsung appears to be facing another round of battery woes, although this time around, phones are not overheating or catching fire, as was the case with the Galaxy Note 7. Instead, some Galaxy Note 8 owners are complaining about their phones abruptly shutting down and not being able to power them back on. Furthermore, there is no indication that the battery is attempting to recharge when plugging in the charging cable. "My wife's [Galaxy] Note 8 turned off today and won't turn back on. Tried the soft reset and Safe Mode button pushes and it won't turn on. When it's plugged in, the red light doesn't... Read more...

We are getting to the part of the year where it is increasingly difficult to stay attached to your money. Tantalizing savings on electronics (and all kinds of other items) are a staple of Black Friday, and before you have a chance to come up for air, Cyber Monday hits. Several retailers have already released Black Friday ads, including Target, Walmart, and Kohl's, to name a few. But it is not just retailers getting in on the shopping frenzy, so are manufacturers. Dell recently tipped its deals, and now Samsung is following suit. Samsung is doing things a bit differently than everyone else. Rather... Read more...
It has been a tradition over the years for Apple fans to stand in long lines for the privilege of buying a newly released iPhone model on launch day. For rival Samsung, it has its own iPhone tradition—poking fun at Apple, while pointing out the strengths of its latest Galaxy handsets, strengths that oftentimes elude the newest iPhone. Like a 3.5mm audio jack. Well, Samsung is at it again with a new ad campaign that mocks the new iPhone X, and several iPhone models that came before it. Samsung's ad starts off with a camera capturing tired customers standing in a line outside of an Apple store for... Read more...

Apple is often accused of "adopting" features that have been found on Android devices for years, and making a big deal out of them when finally integrated into its own devices. Qualcomm was nice enough to give us a pretty nice rundown of tech that was first pioneered on Android devices ahead of the official unveil of the iPhone X. Now, a feature that has been included with the Samsung Galaxy Note series since its introduction in 2011 could be making its way to future iPhones: stylus support. A new report from The Investor says that Apple is working on a way to integrate Apple Pencil support that... Read more...
Apple fans are not going to like this, but despite all of the hype surrounding the company's custom A11 Bionic processor, Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 is faster than the iPhone 8 Plus in real-world usage, according to a series of app loading tests. The results run counter to what we have seen in previously leaked benchmarks, in which the A11 Bionic trounced the competition. In a leaked Geekbench test run, for example, the A11 Bionic-powered iPhone X posted a single-core score of 4,061 points and a multi-core score of 9,959 points, putting it well ahead of every Android phone we have tested to date,...

The ongoing debate between Apple and Samsung might never be settled—some people prefer iPhone handsets and iOS, others are big time fans of Galaxy devices and Android. Each side has their pros and cons, though if you purchased a Galaxy Note 8 and are looking for bragging rights over the iPhone 8, you can point to durability. After putting both hands through a series of drop tests, the folks at PhoneBuff found Samsung's handset to be the tougher of the two...barely. What makes this face off interesting is that both the iPhone 8 and Galaxy Note 8 are using an all-glass back design. Samsung has actually... Read more...
The Galaxy Note 8 is an important product for Samsung. Not only because the Note 8 is the company’s newest, flagship, large-screen smartphone, but because it also carries the additional burden of righting all of the wrongs associated with the company's Note 7 snafu. For some people, there is a certain stigma attached to the Note series now that could be erased if the Note 8 is a success and resonates well with consumers. We can tell you this up front -- all of the right technology seems to be in place. And from a design standpoint, the Note 8 sure is a looker. But good looks and the right... Read more...
