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...
The biggest buzz in the tech world this week was Samsung's official unveiling of the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone that had been oft-leaked and much talked about for weeks now. The Galaxy Note 9 was unveiled at the Samsung Unpacked event back on Thursday. The main specs for the smartphone (our live hands-on) include 8GB of RAM, Snapdragon 845 SoC, up to 512GB of storage, S Pen, and a big 6.4-inch screen. Preorders opened on Friday and Samsung is already running commercials for the Note 9 poking fun at Apple's iPhone X. Preorders may have only started yesterday, but the folks at the Russian site hi-tech.mail.ru have laid hands on the device and ripped it apart to get a glimpse at how it works... Read more...
Yesterday, Samsung officially launched the Galaxy Note 9, which is its latest and greatest smartphone. Naturally, everyone is wanting to compare the Galaxy Note 9 to the iPhone X, which has been out for nearly a year at this point. Now, Samsung is looking to take some additional shots at the iPhone X with a fresh round of "Ingenious" ads. The new ads, “Pen” and “Power”, highlight two of the headliner features of the Galaxy Note 9. The first commercial dubbed “Pen” talks up the Galaxy Note 9’s powerful Bluetooth-enabled S Pen. A customer talks with an Apple Genius and asks about the difference between the Galaxy Note 9's S Pen and the Bluetooth-equipped... Read more...
After what feels like a long wait, Fortnite has finally landed on Android devices, though it is only available on Galaxy S7 and newer handsets. Samsung scored an exclusive to help promote its Galaxy Note 9, which launched yesterday and is available to preorder today. Do not fret if you own a different Android handset, though—the exclusivity period is super short. Epic Games has started rolling out Fortnite Mobile to Android in beta form to newer Galaxy devices and will continue to do so through this Sunday, August 12. After that, Samsung's exclusivity period will have expired. At that point, Epic Games will open up the Fortnite Mobile beta to several other Android devices. What that really... Read more...
Samsung is ending the work week with a bang. Yesterday the company launched its much-anticipated Galaxy Note 9 handset, and today it is opening up preorders for the device. Pricing starts at $999.99 so it is not for the faint of wallet or purse, however there are buy one, get one (BOGO) offers available at Best Buy to significantly soften the blow. Before we get to more pricing details, let's quickly recap the specs. The Galaxy Note 9 wields a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 2960x1440 resolution (18.5:9 aspect ratio), 83.4 percent screen-to-body ratio, and HDR support, and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Samsung's new phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, which is still Qualcomm's... Read more...
After months and months of leaks, we’ve finally had a chance to lay our hands on the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung’s latest Android 8.1 Oreo smartphone. Given that nearly all of the Galaxy Note 9’s specs have been leaked ahead of today’s official reveal, you’re likely already familiar with what the smartphone has to offer. However, we’ll give you a quick rundown of what makes the smartphone special. Starting things off, there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC running the show in this beastly device. Samsung has kicked things up a notch on the storage front, doubling the base configuration from 64GB to 128GB. However, for those that crave even more internal storage,... Read more...
Samsung is set to launch its Galaxy Note 9 this morning in New York, and luckily for you, the company is livestreaming the event for all to see. The event starts at 11am EST and you can view livestream below. We’ve seen plenty of leaks, with some of them even coming directly from Samsung.

Epic Games is planning to port Fortnite Mobile over to Android, though the question is when will it finally happen? There have been rumors that it make an exclusive debut on Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 9 handset, then roll out to other Android devices sometime after. While that has never been corroborated by Epic Games or Samsung, there is new evidence that seemingly confirms that will be the case. The folks at XDA Developers obtained access to the Fortnite Mobile on Android installer APK and promptly dug through the package. They decompiled and analyzed the package, labeled as Fortnite version 5.20, and found that there are checks in place to ensure the game will only run on devices that... Read more...
We have seen numerous leaks of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 9, though the bulk have been from outside sources, not from with the South Korean handset maker itself. Not this time. The company 'accidentally' posted a intro video of the unreleased handset, and in the process it confirmed a few details about the device. Now who really knows if it actually was an accident or a planned leak to generate some buzz. Companies like Samsung know how to leverage social media the and the press at large, and are believed to feed prominent leakers inside information at strategic points during a product's development. This might another case of that. Or it could really be an accident. Either way, the video... Read more...
