It was only a matter of time before Sprint and Verizon launched their own "buy one, get one free" offer for the Galaxy S7 as AT&T and T-Mobile already had launched their own. There is a catch however, if you even consider it a catch that is. As of now, Sprint is not offering the Galaxy S7 Edge as a part of this package but only the regular Galaxy S7. Nonetheless, if you are keen on picking up a Galaxy S7 Edge from Sprint, you will get it at half the retail price from them.


Sprint has even incorporated the Galaxy Forever lease program into both their offers. This particular program allows you to exchange your old Galaxy device for the latest one, after just twelve months. The lease on the other hand will continue as before until the contract ends or you decide to keep exchanging as future Galaxy smartphones keep launching.


Verizon has taken a slightly different approach when compared to Sprint because they are offering both the S7 and the S7 Edge in their Buy-One-Get-One-Free offer. In fact, they have actually taken it a step further by allowing the customer to get both devices at the price of one. What this means is that you can buy a S7 Edge and choose to take a regular S7 instead of another S7 Edge as the free device.


If you are considering any of these offers then keep in mind that they all require the customer to get into a contract with the concerned company and the offer will take anywhere between eight-ten weeks to get validated via a prepaid card. We urge you to go through the terms and conditions carefully before taking a decision. There is now denying though, that these offers do make the S7 series of smartphones seem like much better value for money products.

It was just yesterday that we brought to you images of a leaked case which provided us with multiple alleged external details of the upcoming Galaxy S8. Take a look at another one today coming in from Ghostek, featuring one of their Atomic Shock resistant cases for the S8. Before we delve into the details, keep in mind that this is just a render and nothing is guaranteed to be right at all.



We can see a single rear camera, which is consistent with all the recent rumors, but the cut-out on the case itself is suspiciously big enough for a dual camera module. No fingerprint scanners on the back and a lacking Home button in front indicates that Samsung is opting for an optical fingerprint sensor which will be placed under the glass. Just like the render by Slashgear had suggested, both the volume keys and the Power button can be seen on the left side.



Do you like what you see? Or do you think it's a complete hogwash? Let us know in the comments section below. In the meanwhile, we will have to wait a little while longer to see what is what as Samsung prepares the S8 for a mid-April launch (or is it going to be a February launch?).

As it happens, the Galaxy S8 leaks have been coming in droves lately. We now have the specifications, press renders, live images, videos and everything in between. Today's leaked images are brought to you by BGR and they seem to be legit. Granted that the leak doesn't reveal anything that we didn't know already, it's still another look at the most anticipated device of the year, almost a month prior to its release. Therefore, it's definitely worth looking at!



One of the images gives us a very up close and personal look at the 3.5mm audio jack, the USB Type-C port and the bottom speaker. This more or less confirms that Samsung isn't ditching the popular headphone jack yet, like many thought it might. We can also see the front camera, the iris scanner, the onscreen Home and navigation buttons, the LED notification light, quite a few sensors and of course, the giant borderless display. From the side view, we can see the Volume buttons and the Power button at the left side, with a dedicated Bixby button on the right. Let us know in the comments, if you spot anything else.

The launch might still be 12 days away, but we already have had a pretty comprehensive look at the Galaxy S8 in all its glory. Today, we get to look at the S8 once again in black, courtesy of a Chinese source on Weibo. However, there isn't much we can tell you that we haven't told you already. The borderless display blends in seamlessly with the almost non-existent black bezels, making us believe that this is probably going to be the best color for the S8 and the S8+.



On the back, we can see the fingerprint scanner, the heart rate sensor, the camera module and the flash. The Samsung logo can be seen sitting at the back, below all the sensors. The only thing is that we did not see the Always On virtual Home button in these pics, which leads us to believe that the phone was switched off while being clicked. What do you think? Do you see anything that we missed? Let us know in the comments.

It is no secret that Samsung doesn't exactly consider the iPhones to be much more than fanfare and they have seldom stopped their marketing team from taking a dab or two at the Cupertino giant. This time is no different as Samsung has just released an ad which clearly and openly ridicules all iPhones in general and even delivers a clever little jab at the mighty iPhone X! Take a look at the video above, just in case you have not seen it yet.



In the off chance that you missed it in the ad, the photo above should show you how the Korean OEM has cleverly poked fun at the iPhone X's twin notches, without even mentioning or showing it anywhere in the ad. It's basically just a guy shifting to a Note 8 after years of being frustrated with his iPhones and their multiple shortcomings. To be honest, great as iPhones might be, their Android counterparts do hold some significant advantages over them, especially when it comes to smartphones such as the stylus touting Note 8.

Samsung has managed to keep the Galaxy S9 and S9+ surprisingly under the lid this year, as compared to any other year in recent memory. Not that there is much left to the imagination really, given that we know most things about it already and have seen enough renders to know what it will look like. Even then, there have hardly been any videos or images that have so far shown the S9 or the S9+ live. We may have seen a dummy unit, but it's still not the real thing. Nevertheless, we have more renders for you today and this time it comes from Evan Blass of @evleaks himself.


Aside from confirming certain facts that we knew already (like the dual camera on the S9+), the leaked render unveils a new color to us, the Lilac Purple. In case you are not yet familiar with the most probable specs of the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+, do take a look at the following highlights.


6.2-inch (S9+)/5.8 -inch (S9) Super AMOLED 1440p Infinity Display

Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC (US and China)/Exynos 9810 (international version)

4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage (S9)/6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage (S9+)

Dual rear camera (12mp + 12mp at f/2.4 and f/1.5) for the S9+ and just a single rear camera for the S9

By now we have all had our fair share of look at the Galaxy Note 9 or identical replicas anyway. Even then, nothing is confirmed until the official release and that's what makes every leak interesting till then. On that note, we have another one for you today!


After seeing the image above, we are sure that you have probably noticed that it looks remarkably similar to the Galaxy Note 8, which is not surprising at all, given that's exactly what everyone expects the Note 9 to look like. Nevertheless, what you are seeing here is probably the real deal as Android Headlines strongly stated that their source is as authentic as it can be at this point. We don't see anything too significant though to be honest. Sure, the corners are probably a bit rounder and the bottom bezel might be a bit smaller, but it does look almost identical to the Galaxy Note 8. Even the front sensors seem to be in the exact same spots as on the Note 8 from 2017. Do let us know if you see any changes we missed.

win 10 linux

 

For a lot of people Windows 10 sounds like the a dream come true. The net installment of the popular OS promises universal apps across all hardware platforms and versions and perhaps even more exciting compatibility with every Windows Phone 8 handset out there.

 

Things looked even better after the US tech giant announced its plans to captivate the Chinese market by offering legal upgrades to both genuine and non-genuine Windows installs. Another piece of the Windows 10 puzzle has surfaces today, courtesy of a leaked China presentation and it could potentially show a slightly darker aspect of the upcoming OS.

The information has to do with "Secure Boot" the feature that once enabled, prevents unauthorized installation of other operating systems on the device. It has been around for quite some time, but, unlike with previous Windows versions, where Microsoft has allowed and in some cases even required OEM's to make the setting user-adjustable, Windows 10 will be a lot stricter on the matter.

 

With the new OS, Microsoft will no longer prevent OEM's from permanently enabling "Secure Boot" on their personal computers, which could potentially mean that a lot of new laptops and even some OEM desktop builds might not allow users to install anything but the Windows 10, supplied by the manufacturer. This, of course means no dual booting, no Linux, no Hackintosh, basically no actual freedom to exploit the hardware you own and have paid for.

 

And while the decision of whether or not to lock "Secure Boot" on a PC is entirely up to OEM's and could shift either way, things are really looking bad for Windows 10 on mobile devices. Microsoft will reportedly mandate all manufacturers, producing Windows powered phones, tablets and similar mobile tech to have "Fast Boot" permanently enabled. This could be a major hindrance to the software modding and developer community and once again, kind of locks you out from the hardware you legally own.

If you own any one of the two Samsung flagship smartphones, you should receive a notification for another new update very soon. This one will upgrade the firmware to version FXXU1APE9. The Korean OEM wasn't particularly famous for releasing fast and rapid updates, but this year, things have changed for the good. Multiple updates have been rolled out since the two phones were released in March, addressing bugs and improving stability in the process.


This one fixes a complex issue in which the power saving mode was disabled as soon as Google Now was launched. It will also resolve the initial flickering that some users complained about while playing back recorded footage. Users will be able to save files to the SD card without any problem now and according to Samsung, "icon location cycle has been changed to improve screen clarity" on the Always On display.


The update is a midsized 332MB file for the S7, and a 353MB one for the S7 Edge. It is an OTA update as usual and we recommend the use of Wi-Fi for downloading them. Although you should receive an automatic notification, you can always check from Settings >About device >Check for updates to see if the patch has arrived on your device yet.

S5 lollipop

 

For one reason or another Poland has been chosen as the Lollipop testing ground and the Galaxy S5 is receiving its 2nd Lollipop update. This one patches up issues found in the first version which includes Stability and Performance Enhancements along with some reported bug fixes for the most part.

You can update over the air (Settings > About > Software update) or you can use Samsung Kies. Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F) owners can also download the firmware and flash it themselves, though at this point it will probably be smarter to wait for the official rollout.

The new update weighs in at 371MB and has the following PDA number G900FXXU1BNL7. An official changelog is not available.

 



Samsung has not had a great time with the Galaxy S9 and S9+ due to the calling issues which most of the models are facing. Calls are either being muted, distorted or dropped entirely by the smartphone and this has even led some Israeli users to sue the company for malpractice and negligence. The unfortunate news is that certain unofficial reports are claiming that the problem cannot be solved with updates at all as the issue is with the hardware itself. This could also explain as to why so many updates have so far failed to bring any significant solution to the problem. Nevertheless, Samsung has just started sending out another patch via OTA, that could potentially solve this issue.

 

The good news here is that plenty of users have since reported that this might have fixed all the calling issues on the S9 and S9+ after all! So, if you own either the Galaxy S9 or the Galaxy S9+, do make sure that you have downloaded and installed firmware versions G960FXXU1ARD4 and G965FXXU1ARD4 for the S9 and S9+ already, provided of course, it has become available to your region. Let us know what your experiences are post the update.
