You can’t enroll your new Galaxy S10 in Samsung Premium Care unless you added it during purchase

Monday, March 18th, 2019

Last year, some Galaxy S9/S9+ owners had trouble registering their brand new devices for Premium Care — Samsung's great extended warranty and in-person support program. The option wasn't available if you didn't pick it while buying your device, and post-purchase enrollment was only opened in September — six months after the phones first became available. History is repeating itself this year, and once again, S10 owners are finding themselves in the same situation.

Samsung’s One UI night mode forces Android Auto to think it’s always nighttime

Monday, March 18th, 2019

With One UI, Samsung introduced a system-wide night mode for its Android Pie devices. The new feature darkens the manufacturer's proprietary software such as the Calculator and Messages apps and also alters the overall menus and interface colors, but still requires you to manually enable dark mode in other applications like Messenger or Slack. Android Auto, on the other hand, happily receives this setting and defaults to it, no matter the time of the day.

Samsung embraces the Galaxy S10 camera cutout with new custom wallpapers

Friday, March 15th, 2019

We were all a bit skeptical when Samsung started talking about the "Infinity-O" display tech last year. As expected, the Galaxy S10 family sports a hole in the display for the front-facing cameras. At first, Samsung sought to downplay the holes, but now it's getting with the trend of wallpapers that work with the cutout.

As soon as the GS10 shipped, the community started churning out neat wallpapers that incorporate the cutout.

The Galaxy S10 can’t tell when it’s in your pocket, keeps waking the screen

Friday, March 15th, 2019

All but the earliest Android phones have had proximity sensors to turn the screen off when you're on a call or drop the device in your pocket. For all the fancy premium features in the new Samsung Galaxy S10 family, they don't seem to use the proximity sensor correctly. Owners across the internet are complaining of accidental touches while the phone is in a pocket, which shouldn't happen on a budget phone, let alone one that costs as much as $1,000.

[Update x2: Fix rolling out] Sony appears to be blocking Kodi on its recent Android TVs

Friday, March 15th, 2019

Kodi (formerly XBMC) has attracted an undeservedly bad rap outside media streaming circles, garnering a piracy-associated reputation that isn't quite merited — at least, in my opinion.

Samsung starts mass-producing new 12GB RAM for smartphones

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

Smartphones are growing increasingly powerful and are boasting faster processors, larger storage, and greater memory. Nine years ago, the first Galaxy S shipped with just 512MB of RAM, but the capacity on smartphones has evolved to reach a minimum of 6GB on the S10e. It looks like these numbers will continue to expand, as Samsung just announced it's begun mass-producing its new LPDDR4X 12GB DRAM chip.

The 1TB Galaxy S10+ already features 12GB of internal memory, but this new chip is reportedly smaller than the flagship's current module, which is achieved by combining six 16-gigabit chips into a single module.

Microsoft begins testing Android mirroring in Windows 10

Tuesday, March 12th, 2019

Do you want Android apps on your PC? Well, that's what Microsoft is about to deliver regardless of your answer. The company has started testing the previously demoed "phone screen" feature of its Your Phone app. Don't get too excited, though. Only select testers can use it right now, and hardware support is limited.

Currently, the Your Phone app for Windows 10 lets you sync content like photos and SMS with a PC.

Samsung rolls Android 9 Pie out to the Verizon and unlocked Note 9

Tuesday, March 12th, 2019

Android Pie has been spreading slowly through Samsung's smartphone lineup in recent months. The Galaxy S9 family got the OTA first, and then the Note 9 began its Android 9 journey early this year. Most Galaxy Note 9 devices should be taken care of with today's rollout for both Verizon and unlocked phones.

Samsung is unusual in the way it handles unlocked phone updates. Most OEMs just push non-carrier updates on their own schedule, but Samsung runs the update through the big four US carriers before delivering it to unlocked phones.

Samsung pushes One UI to its Galaxy Wearable app

Monday, March 11th, 2019

Samsung introduced its revamped One UI interface in November. The company claims the new design is more intuitive and requires less finger movement on large screens. In addition, it brings a dark mode for stock apps and system elements, which looks sleek and saves battery on OLED displays.

Since then, almost all Samsung-branded software has been updated to reflect the new theme, but the Galaxy Wearable app seemed to have been left aside, despite the release of a new version mid-February (APK Mirror).
