Samsung has quietly slashed prices on two of the best affordable phones around: the Galaxy A5 (2017) and A3 (2017)

The new Samsung Galaxy A (2017) series are impressive: the phones feature a design that looks and feels almost exactly as fine as the glass and metal one on the flagship S7 family, they sport truly impressive battery life, feature an impressive water-protection rating and run on the latest Samsung Grace user interface.
And now, less than a couple of months after their official launch, Samsung has slashed the prices on both the 5.2-inch Galaxy A5 (2017) and smaller, 4.7-inch A3 (2017).

The new price adds to the value of …

Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 coming to the Unites States in April/June

Samsung silently unveiled the rugged Galaxy Xcover 4 in the first day of this month and said Europeans would be able to pick it up in April for €259.

However, we’re expecting the Galaxy Xcover 4 to arrive in the United States as well, even if Samsung hasn’t yet confirmed the information. As some of you might know, the predecessor rugged Galaxy Xcover phone made its debut in June, but none of the carriers in the U.S. offered it when it hit the shelves.

Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3 was available in the U.S. exclusively through Amazon, and it looks like the retailer …

Samsung Galaxy S8 accessories and their prices get leaked ahead of official reveal

We’re just a couple of days away from the official reveal of Samsung’s flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, and it looks like we already know everything there is to know about the device.

Unfortunately, Samsung fans who like to be surprised at least once or twice per year must feel betrayed by the company’s inability to stop the sheer of leaks revealing important aspects about its upcoming flagships.

However, this time we won’t be talking about the Galaxy S8 per se, but about some of the official accessories that Samsung plans to launch alongside its top-tier …

Gestures used with the fingerprint scanner on the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ will open and close apps?

According to what is alleged to be the settings page on the Samsung Galaxy S8, the fingerprint scanner will support gestures that will open and close apps. While the page itself is in Spanish, running the words through Google Translate results in something interesting. Under the heading “Gestos para sensor de huella” (Gestures for the fingerprint sensor), it reads “abir y cerrar aplicaciones y funciones con el sensor huella digitales.” Translated, it reads “Open and close applications and functions with the fingerprint sensor.” And there is a toggle switch right next to the sentence that allows …

The new iPad and the Galaxy Tab S3 go on sale today, are you picking one?

Apple’s regular tablet line was getting a bit long in the tooth, as the last non-Pro iPad, the Air 2, came as far back as October 2014. While it has certainly become clear by now that people don’t upgrade their tablets as often as their phones, two and a half years is a reasonable pause before the next iteration. 

Surely enough, Apple just got to the airwaves this week to announce a new and improved 9.7″ iPad, but even without a “one more thing” uttered on stage, this one took us for a surprise anyway. Priced to move at $329 for the base version, the new iPad comes in silver, …

A Samsung Galaxy S8+ dummy unit poses for a detailed hands-on video

Another day, another Galaxy S8 leak: this time around, we have a detailed hands-on video with an all-black dummy unit of the device’s larger variant, the S8+, offering us a glimpse of its gargantuan proportions.

In a parallel universe such a leak would’ve been huge news, as it details the device’s size (with a ruler!), shows it from a huge amount of angles, and describes its button placement, including the extra one on the left side of the phone, as well as the fingerprint scanner placed right next to the rear camera lens. But this isn’t exactly the …

Samsung releases new product video for the Galaxy Tab S3

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is not only a highly spec’d beast of a tablet, it also is quite thin. And it is so light, it practically levitates itself off of the ground. That is the impression that Samsung wants you to have after viewing its newly released product video for the tablet, which goes on sale today. And of course, the S Pen makes an appearance in the clip, smoothly marking up the screen as though it were a figure skate gliding on a clean patch of ice.

The Galaxy Tab S3 features a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1536 x 2048 resolution. Powering the slate is the Snapdragon …
