Many consider Samsung’s new AR emojis that launched with the Galaxy S9 and S9+ a rather gimmicky feature, but the following announcement could be considered proof that AR emojis are here to stay.

Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ customization guide: All the essential settings you should change

It might sound awfully-cliched by now, but Android’s customizability is one of its biggest assets. Conversely, it’s sort of a downside of its own as well – having options is cool, but the more of these you have at your fingertips, the more complex decision-making becomes. Hence, one of Android’s best features is also one of its most overwhelming drag-downs.

Yet, who are we to criticize users’ ability to shape the interface of their devices to their heartfelt content. Actually, as you probably know, we too are “guilty” of regularly going overboard with interface customization …

Samsung Store drops prices on carrier Galaxy S9/S9+ to unlocked levels, cuts more off AT&T models

The online Samsung Store today has given U.S. consumers a reason not to buy the Samsung Galaxy S9 or Samsung Galaxy S9+ from their wireless providers. Sammy has lowered the price of carrier branded variants of its 2018 flagship phones to match the price of the U.S. unlocked versions.

So the new pricing from the Samsung Store has the Galaxy S9 (U.S. carrier or U.S. unlocked) available for $719.99, and the Galaxy …
