• Android updates have a major discoverability problem

    1 month ago - By Android Central

    This goes deeper than Android phones taking a while to get updates.
    A couple of summers ago, I went to a party hosted by my mom's best friend. It was one of those languid, casual dos where people show up at various points of the afternoon just to drink some coffee, say hi, and leave.
    The age ranges varied between toddler and octogenarian, and like any party, kids were running around while the parents were talking about their kids. And while it was 2017, a year after Pokémon Go had debuted, most of the kids were bugging their parents for their phones - the host's house was near a Gym and...

    Verizon Launching LG V50 Nationwide June 20th

    1 month ago - By Phone Scoop

    Verizon will launch its second phone with integrated 5G - the LG V50 ThinQ 5G - for all customers on June 20th. As with the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, Verizon isn't restricting sales to areas where 5G service is available, as Sprint has done. Verizon is selling the phone for $1,000, or $41.66/month for 24 months. For a limited time, Verizon is waiving the $10/month 5G access fee. Verizon's 5G network uses mmWave frequencies and is currently available in part of Chicago and Minneapolis, with another 28+ cities coming by the end of the year.

    Pick Up A New Samsung Galaxy S9 For $465 - Amazon Deals

    1 month ago - By Android Headlines

    Amazon has dropped the price of a brand new Samsung Galaxy S9 down to just $465. That's down from its regular price of $599, and that makes it a really good time to pick one up.
    The Galaxy S9 is also unlocked and will work on all four US carriers. That includes AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon in the US.
    Samsung's Galaxy S9 might be a bit on the old side now, since it is a little more than a year old now, but at under $500, it's a good time to grab one. The Galaxy S9 is still going to be able to hold its own against other smartphones on the market, even those that were just released. And...

    How To Enable Samsung One Font On Your Galaxy

    1 month ago - By Android Headlines

    When Samsung rolled out One UI last year, it also rolled out a new font for its smartphones. While it doesn't default to this new One font, you can still switch to it in the settings which is a nice feature to have. It does work on One UI 1.1 only, which means only newer smartphones from Samsung will support it. That includes Galaxy A30, Galaxy A50, Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10+ , and Galaxy S10 5G.
    If you're one that likes to do a lot of customization to your smartphone, then changing the font is one of those things you're going to want to do. The option is somewhat hidden in the...

    1 month ago - By Phone Arena

    It's been almost a month since Samsung kicked off the One UI update rollout to some of its older smartwatches, but it looks like not all models got it yet. For example, the LTE-enabled Galaxy Watch received the One UI update just one week ago, while the T-Mobile Galaxy Watch got it around the same time.
    Now it's Verizon's turn to finally make One UI available to customers who bought the Samsung Galaxy Watch. The changelog spotted by AndroidSoul offers many details about the new features and improvements included in One UI.
