Samsung should bring Google’s Find My Device integration to Galaxy SmartTags

The Galaxy SmartTag 2 is one of the best object location trackers around in terms of hardware and technology. It is compact, has a built-in key attachment ring, features UWB for ultra-precision finding, and lasts up to 500 days on a single charge.

Galaxy AI might just be the least disruptive implementation of AI

Earlier this year, Samsung released what it now calls its first AI phone, i.e., the Galaxy S24.

Samsung’s making it a habit to reward its customers with software updates around major holidays.

I wonder, how often has this […]

It’s been a month since I upgraded from the Galaxy S22+ to Samsung’s new Galaxy S24+ flagship. I haven’t sold the S22+, nor do I intend to. The phone sits on my desk, and I’ve occasionally gone back to using it briefly to compare things between the old and the new. And I must say, […]
