    10 days ago - By Phone Arena

    It hasn't been a secret that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+ have had disappointing sales. Smartphone fanatics are focused on the just unveiled Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and soon the 2018 iPhone models will be introduced. So carriers are running promotions in an attempt to empty their warehouses overflowing with boxes containing Sammy's 2018 flagship models.
    The latest promotion comes from pre-paid carrier Cricket. Port over your number to the AT&T-owned provider and you can purchase the Samsung Galaxy S9 for $499.99. Besides porting your number, you ...

    Android 9 Pie just launched, so Samsung announced 12 of its devices will get Android 8 Oreo

    10 days ago - By Tech Radar

    Samsung announced an Android 8.0 Oreo update schedule for its mid-tier phones and tablets, so you may be in luck if you have an older or budget device like the Galaxy J7 or Galaxy A9. Yes, Android 9.0 Pie is already out on the Google Pixel 2 and other Pixel handsets, but some of Samsung's devices won't be getting Android 8.0 Oreo until January 2019, reports AndroidPure.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs. LG G7 ThinQ: ThinQ size is everything?

    11 days ago - By Phone Arena

    The Galaxy Note may have been the de facto pioneer of the “phablet” era of smartphones, but these days, as bezels shrink on devices, so too do the lines between “phablets” and regular-sized phones. Take LG's G7 ThinQ, for example. There's no “plus” in the name, or anything like that; it's just a “regular” phone, right?
