One of the basic functions of any phone by its very essence is to enable the user to take and make calls, but unfortunately, some of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ units do not seem up to be up to the job. Apparently, a lot of users are complaining about their units dropping calls or the phone muting the call automatically. This issue has been confirmed beyond doubt and Samsung is working on a fix as you read this. It should be noted that this is an old problem now and Samsung has already sent out a patch or two to fix the problem, but so far, they have proven to be ineffective or marginally effective in improving the situation.


Personally, I can vouch for the fact that my old Galaxy S8 also experiences a strange calling related issue. At times, I can see a full signal bar but all call and SMS facilities simply go out of order. I had missed an entire hour's worth of calls last week, without even realizing that it was happening. It was only when I restarted the phone that the messages and calls started to come in again. I guess Samsung needs to improve on the basic phone functionalities of their flagship devices soon.

It doesn't matter even if it's an Apple iPhone, but we are all used to seeing the famous "Made in China" or "Assembled in China" line printed behind most smartphones, but that could very well change soon. Apparently, Samsung is going to start assembling smartphones in Bangladesh from May. What this means for Bangladesh is that the price of models assembled by Samsung locally will come down in the country significantly. However, this will only apply to low-range or mid-range models for now, because the flagships and high-end smartphones are not ready to be assembled there yet. It may happen after a few months, but not as of now. This will significantly decrease the taxes (29.5%) which Samsung has to pay for importing their devices into Bangladesh.


Samsung has partnered up with Fair Electronics Ltd for the deal and the newly built manufacturing plant in Narsingdi (which is a huge 58,000 square-feet facility) is expected to churn out hundreds of thousands of 4G devices every month by June. While the concept of local manufacturing is not new for Samsung, this is the first time they have started doing it in Bangladesh.

As it is the situation every year, there's a lot of excitement surrounding the next Galaxy Note device and rumors are slowly starting to make their way onto the internet. Nevertheless, you shouldn't believe everything you read or see. For example, the latest photos of the Galaxy Note 9, as leaked by @BdaLeak are not real either.



This news and the pictures have been confirmed to be a fake by SamMobile so do not take these images very seriously. Besides, it's way too early for Samsung to have fully functioning and ready prototypes such as the ones shown in the pictures. Additionally, the lack of a fingerprint scanner in any of the images gives one the impression that the Note 9 is sporting the in-display fingerprint scanner and we know for a fact that the technology isn't yet ready to support Samsung's AMOLED screens. Nevertheless, the actual images may not really look that much different from the ones that you see here, so it's worth a look we guess!

It wasn't too long ago that Samsung had actually stopped producing Windows laptops altogether, but they have recently entered the market to try out their luck once again. While the Odyssey Z isn't the first laptop from since Samsung decided to re-enter the industry, it is the company's first gaming laptop nonetheless.



The Odessey Z looks quite sleek and packs in decent hardware as well, albeit nothing exceptional. What Samsung is highlighting is the company's custom cooling system that comprises of the Dynamic Spread Vapor Chamber, Z AeroFlow Cooling Design, and a Z Blade Blower. The manufacturer guarantees that this cooling system will keep the laptop icy even when the internals are pushed to their maximum. Speaking of internals, it is powered by an 8th-Gen Intel Core-i7 processor, GTX 1060 (6GB) GPU and up to 16GB of RAM. For more details about the laptop, check out the screenshot of the specs below. It would be interesting to see how Samsung prices the product, given that there's plenty of laptops there already with similar specifications.

Do you like the Always-On Display? Or do you keep it off to save battery? Whatever your answer is, you will have to admit that it's one of the better appeals of Samsung's AMOLED displays and higher-end smartphones, but it's about to get even better because the AOD will now support GIF images!


If you have a Galaxy S8/S8+/S9/S9+/Note 8 updated to the latest version, then this feature should be available to you right now. Go into the gallery and open a GIF. Now, touch the three dots to bring up the menu, where you should select "Set as Always on Display image" and you are done.


There are a few things that you should know about the feature though and they are as follows.


·         .webp format is not supported, although it is becoming the new standard

·         Only GIF images are supported as far as moving images on the AOD is concerned

·         You will see the animation only once per lock and unlock
