Samsung is celebrating Galaxy Day, with this year being significant in the history of the Samsung Galaxy S line of devices. June marks ten years since the first Galaxy S smartphone launched. As part of the celebration of the tenth birthday of the Galaxy S line of devices, Samsung is offering some good deals on Galaxy products and some free items along with that. One of the best free offers that Samsung has going right now is only available through June 8, 2019. This deal will get you a free set of Galaxy Buds earbuds with the purchase of a Galaxy S10 or Galaxy Note 9 smartphone. This deal is nice because the Galaxy Buds are seen as a reliable alternative to the Apple AirPods, and they usually... Read more...
Samsung is prepping a software update for its Galaxy Note 9 and a few other high-end handsets, though what it has in the works is more than just a new build of Android. In addition to doling out Android 9 Pie, it's readying a final build of its recently announced One UI, which the company says "helps you focus on what really matters most." If you own a Galaxy Note 9, you can test out a beta version of One UI. "Made for all our users, the One UI Beta Program is the chance to try One UI before its official release. As one of the first to enjoy the new features and design, send us your feedback and see how it helps us create an exceptional experience. The program is available for participants in... Read more...
We've seen some excellent deals going on smartphones of late, particularly during Black Friday. Samsung has been dealing on its flagship Galaxy Note 9 dating back to October when it announced it was doubling the trade-in offer to lure buyers to upgrade to the Note 9. Amazon had a deal on the Galaxy Note 9 in early October that included a free Galaxy S3 Frontier smartwatch. Those deals were good, but for a lot of people, all they want is a healthy price cut. Today only via the Samsung store you can get a sweet $300 instant rebate on the Galaxy Note 9 good on both the 128GB or 512GB versions of the smartphone if you select Verizon as your carrier of choice. Buyers can also take advantage of... Read more...
Just over a week ago, Amazon was running a pretty enticing deal on the Galaxy Note 9 where it discounted the 128GB model by $70 and included the Gear IconX Bluetooth earbuds and a Samsung Qi wireless charger for free. Today, Amazon is offering an even sweeter deal on the 512GB version of the Galaxy Note 9. The range-topping version of the Galaxy Note 9 typically sells for $1,249, and that's no different today with the Amazon's current promotion. However, the company is throwing in a free Galaxy S3 Frontier smartwatch with the deal. Sure, it's not the fancy new Galaxy Watch (which we reviewed here), but the Gear S3 is Samsung's 2017 flagship smartwatch and it's still a compelling... Read more...
Samsung's latest flagship Android smartphones include the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and the Galaxy Note 9, however, sales volume for the former two devices hasn't exactly been impressive. In July Samsung reported softer profits with the finger pointed directly at lower than expected sales of its flagship devices. Samsung has now stepped up to the plate and is doubling its Galaxy Note 9, S9, and S9+ trade-in offer on eligible smartphones. Samsung's double trade-in value deal runs from October 5, 2018, through November 3, 2018, and is valid at Best Buy, AT&T, Samsung.com, and other retailers. It's probably going to be best for those wanting to take advantage of this deal to buy directly via... Read more...
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 hasn't been on the market for very long, but Amazon is already discounting the flagship smartphone for those that want an unlocked device and don't want to deal with carrier financing or contracts. The 128GB Galaxy Note 9 has a regular MSRP of $999, but Amazon is currently selling the device for $929 (in either Ocean Blue or Lavender Purple). $70 off a device that costs $1,000 might not seem like much (it barely covers tax for many people), but any discount is much appreciated given how expensive flagship smartphones from companies like Apple, LG and Samsung are getting these days. But it doesn't stop with the discount on the Galaxy... Read more...
There has been a myriad of complaints about the new iPhone models in their short time on the market. Some of the big complaints about the iPhone XS and XS Max include unreliable charging with many users claiming that the smartphones often won’t recognize the charger. Users have also complained that the new iPhones have less run time per charge and that the cellular and WiFi signals are weaker than on previous iPhone models. PC Magazine has taken an iPhone XS and had Cellular Insights perform testing on it and other smartphones using fancy Rohde & Schwarz measuring equipment. The iPhone XS and XS Max both use an Intel XMM7569 in part because of the legal wrangling going on between... Read more...
Have we all lost our minds when it comes to smartphones? Or perhaps the better question is, have smartphone OEMs completely jumped the shark? Apple announced its new 2018 lineup of iPhones last week, and the flagship iPhone XS starts at $999. That itself isn’t too surprising, given that that iPhone X launched at the same price last year. However, Apple's iPhone XS Max takes the cake with a starting price of $1,099. Maybe I’m just a cheapskate, but that’s a boatload of money for a smartphone that isn’t all that much of an upgrade over last year’s iPhone X (with the exception of the larger 6.5-inch display). But it doesn’t stop there. Even though you’re... Read more...
One of the biggest smartphone launches so far this year has been the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. When the smartphone went on sale last week, we ran down some of the best deals that you can get on the smartphone from all the major carriers. The thing that they all had in common was that you were tied to a contract with the carrier to get the discount. Costco has stepped in and is offering one of the better deals on the Note 9 that's going right now if you don't want a contract. The only caveat to this deal is that you need a Costco membership to save the money. Assuming you don't mind shelling out the membership fee of $60 to join the club you can save up to $500 on the price of the Note 9 smartphone.... Read more...
The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 officially went on sale last week (read the HotHardware review here), and it brings an incredible wealth of features to the table, along with an enormous price tag ($999+). But for those that are hip to the idea of an S Pen-equipped flagship phone, there are deals to be had. With that being said, now that the Galaxy Note 9 is out in the wild, it means that the gadget repair gurus at iFixit have given the smartphone the teardown treatment. We're now privy to a plethora of high-resolution shots and a step-by-step process on how to disassemble this mobile beast. With a bit of heat and suction applied to the back glass panel (which is glued on), it pops... Read more...
In the Android smartphone world, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is pretty much an apex predator (check out the HotHardware review here). It comes with a massive 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor paired with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of internal storage that can be augmented with a 512GB microSD. Well, today the Galaxy Note 9 officially is available both online and in brick and mortar locations -- including from America's top wireless providers. While the Galaxy Note 9 brings a lot to the table, it requires a steep price of entry.  The base 128GB configuration with 6GB of RAM will set you back $999 off-contract, while the 8GB/512GB...

With the high price that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is commanding, you might expect that many buyers would be getting the entry-level 128GB version of the smartphone that still costs $999.99 in the States and 1.09 million won in Korea. That’s not the case in South Korea, where a new report claims that over half the preorders for the smartphone have been for the more expensive 512GB version of the phone. In the States that 512GB version sells for $1,249.99 or 1.35 million won. The information cited in this report comes from industry data. The Note 9 started going out to those who pre-ordered the device in South Korea on August 21; the retail launch of the smartphone is set for August 24.... Read more...
Samsung has done very well historically with DisplayMate ratings, with the Galaxy S8 receiving its highest ever rating at the time it launched. Earlier this year, the Galaxy S9 was crowned the best smartphone display in the world. DisplayMate's test report for the Galaxy Note 9 shows that the smartphone's display performance has reached record-setting "Outstanding" levels and set many new Display Performance Records. One of those records was for Absolute Color Accuracy scoring a "very impressive" 0.5 JNCD making it "Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect." DisplayMate wrote in the test results that the Note 9 display was "almost certainly considerably better than your existing Smartphone,... Read more...
If there's one bit of messaging we keyed on, with respect to Samsung's recently announced Galaxy Note 9 flagship and its high-level feature set, it was the promise of a robust thermal solution that would maintain performance over time and under pressure. Samsung claims the new Galaxy Note 9 employs a "water-carbon cooling" system, with a heat spreader for its Snapdragon 845 SoC and associated circuitry, that's three times larger than the previous generation Galaxy Note. So we figured we'd like to put that to the test. Meanwhile, we've also been spending quality time in the test lab with none other than the OnePlus 6 -- an Android superphone in its own right, with 8GB of RAM and a near bone-stock... Read more...
