A lot of Samsung products were heavily discounted during this Black Friday, and the discounts are still running. Currently, 32GB variant of the Galaxy S6 and 128GB variant of the Galaxy S6 edge are being sold for as low as $399 and $599 in the US. These devices are compatible with Verizon’s network, and are available through eBay.
The current non-discount price of the Galaxy S6 (32GB) is being sold for $580 on Verizon’s website, while the price tag of the Galaxy S6 edge (128GB) is $899. This deal also includes free shipping in the US, but only a “limited quantity” of units are available right now, so you better hurry if you got your eyes on them.
Black Friday is finally here and T-Mobile has a really nice offer on the latest Samsung devices. You’ll find the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and the Galaxy S6 edge+ all available for $100 cheaper until the 29th of November and this works without any promo code whatsoever. The discount also applies regardless of your form of purchase, be it in monthly installments or all at once – the discount stands. T-Mobile is also hosting a trade-in promotion where, if you trade an eligible device you can get a Galaxy S6 for $0 down and $0 monthly fees so you only pay the sales tax. There’s a catch to this offer though: only high-tier models can be traded in, like the iPhone 6, the Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy Note Edge. The other catch is that you only get to keep that Galaxy s6 for 18 months after which you’ll need to return it.
As a plus to the trade-in offer above, you can also get other handsets besides the Galaxy S6 like the Galaxy S6 edge for $4/month, or the Galaxy S6 edge+ for $8/month and even theGalaxy Note 5 for $5/month.
What are you waiting for? Check out T-Mobile’s massive Black Friday deal and let us know if you’ll take advantage of this promotion.
Samsung has released a software update to the Galaxy S6 edge in the Nordic countries and in Israel (Orange and Cellcom) with build numbers G925FXXU3QOKD and G925FXXU3COJ1 respectively. The update has been released for the SM-G925F, and the new firmware brings VoLTE and VoWiFi features to the devices in the Nordic countries. However, these features will have to be activated by carriers in these countries.
The update, which has a file size of 83.76MB, will be rolled out over the air. However, you can download the new firmware file from our firmware section, and install it manually using Odin. The update also brings in security and performance enhancements to the device. If you’ve installed the update already, let us know how the new features work on your device.
The Galaxy A series devices were the first full metal smartphones from Samsung, and we had reported a couple of months ago that Samsung is working on the successors to the Galaxy A3, the Galaxy A5 and the Galaxy A7. Last week, specifications of these devices were leaked and they were certified for Bluetooth standards. Now images of the Galaxy A7′s successor have been leaked through China’s telecom regulatory authority TENAA.
As you can see, these images are similar to the ones leaked earlier, and aligns to the design language that Samsung unveiled with the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. The SM-A7100, which will be released as a successor to the Galaxy A7, has a 6.95mm thin metal design with glass at the front and the back. The device would feature a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 615 processor, 3GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 2,600 mAh battery.
The device will come equipped with a 13-megapixelprimary camera and a 5-megapixel secondary camera. This device will come pre-installed with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and feature 4G LTE, NFC, and GPS connectivity. Samsung is also working on a higher-end Galaxy A series device, the Galaxy A9, which might feature a Snapdragon 620 processor and a 16-megapixel camera. What do you think about this premium mid-range smartphone?
Those who own the Galaxy S6 or the Galaxy S6 edge on T-Mobile are receiving a new software update today but they shouldn’t get too excited because Android 6.0 Marshmallow has still not arrived for Samsung’s current flagship handsets. T-Mobile has sent out an incremental firmware update for both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge instead which makes several improvements to overall device performance, battery performance and call stability.
Build number G920TUVU3DOJ7 and G925TUVU3DOJ7 is now being rolled out for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge on T-Mobile. The changelog states that this firmware update brings improvements for the overall device performance, improves security of the device, call stability, battery life and optimizes closing unused applications. The Milk Video application has also been removed in this update, which isn’t surprising since the Milk Video is shutting down this month. It has only been an hour or so since T-Mobile started rolling out this update so it might take some time for this update to go live across all regions.
The Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ are two of the best and most complete flagships from Samsung, but there’s an annoying little bug that ruins the experience on these devices every now and then. Sometimes, when you wake up the phone and try to unlock it, the Note 5 and S6 edge+ become extremely slow. This slowdown corrects itself in a few seconds, but it does so by reloading the entire UI.
This UI reload sends you back to the lock screen, making you unlock the device again. It doesn’t kill or restart any apps that you might have running, but the trip back to the lock screen and the slowdown means you have to wait for a few seconds before getting back to using the phone.
This bug crops up at least once every day; it’s not that frequent, but it’s still an annoyance that has existed since launch and wasn’t fixed in the first software updates to the two devices. It’s an issue on both standard swipe screen unlock and when you use the fingerprint option, and Samsung will hopefully implement a fix in the next update that comes along for the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+.
Does your Note 5 or S6 edge+ suffer from this issue? Let us know in the comments!
