We finally found out the reason why Samsung didn’t launch the Note 5 in Europe


Note5-S6EdgePLus

After the success of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, Samsung launched two new phones that were equally as impressive. The Note 5 and S6 Edge+, however, the Note 5 didn’t quite make it to Europe and no one knew why?

However, we now have the exact reason from Rory O’Neill, Samsung’s European Vice President of Brand and Marketing:

“We studied that the user patterns for large-screen devices in Europe were much more entertainment-centric, viewing-centric, than while the Note proposition is really good, is more on the productivity side and personal organisation side.”

Basically, people in Europe don’t care as much about using their phones for work and would rather have the larger screen for media consumption. This is why the S6 Edge+ was launched there, but not the more productivity focused Note 5.

However, the big question is will Samsung do the same thing with the Note 6 and S7 Edge+? We have heard some rumours that while the Note 5 was left out of European markets, the Note 6 will definitely be coming there (at least in the UK). Although, this time around the S7 Edge+ might not. Pretty much a complete reverse of last year.

[Deal] AT&T hosting BOGO promotion with Samsung’s high-end phones


samsung_galaxy_s6_edge_plus_fingerprint_closeup_TA

Samsung’s next two flagships are on the way, and that means carriers and retailers want to burn through existing inventory of last year’s devices. First up to start dumping Samsung phones is AT&T with a new promotion that includes the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy S6 Active, and even the Galaxy Note 5.

AT&T customers can purchase any of the aforementioned Samsung phones through an AT&T Next installment plan before picking up a Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Active with 32GB of internal storage for free. Since AT&T Next is part of the promotion and you’re not buying devices outright, the carrier will issue credit within three billing cycles. However, the credit will be spread across thirty months.

The deal expires on March 31, and select locations are not eligible to redeem the offer. AT&T says the deal is a no-go in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Florida’s Miami-Dade County.

Samsung rolls out December security update for the Galaxy S6 trio in India and the Nordic countries


samsung_galaxy_s6_edge_plus_fingerprint_closeup_TA

When Samsung took the wraps off the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge+ in the second quarter of 2015, it promised customers it would distribute monthly security upgrades in order to keep the handsets up to date and running smoothly. It certainly appears that the South Korean company is staying true to its word as it’s now rolling out December’s upgrade to the devices located in India and the Nordic countries.

The upgrade doesn’t transport any added functionality, but it does bundle a plethora of much-needed bug fixes and stability improvements to bring better security and more reliable voice calls to the handsets, along with several battery life enhancements. A full list of all the changes can be seen over on Samsung’s security blog.

As is the norm, this update is being distributed in stages. To see if it’s ready for your device head into Settings, scroll to the bottom and tap on “About Device”, hit “System Updates”, then select “Check for updates”. Alternatively, you can wait until you receive a push notification prompting you to install the update.

$100 off Samsung smartphones, year of Netflix offered by T-Mobile in final Unwrapped deal


t-mobile_unwrapped_samsung_phone_netflix_offer

T-Mobile announced today their final special offer as part of their holiday shopping Un-carrier Unwrapped promotions. The offer encourages consumers to pick up a Samsung smartphone thanks to a $100 discount and suggests consumers avail themselves of T-Mobile’s new Binge On feature by throwing in a year of Netflix.

John Legere, in announcing this final offer for the season, says other carriers are engaging in trickery with their specials, but T-Mobile’s Unwrapped is different in being simple, “we’re giving you $100 off the top on Samsung’s hottest phones, plus a year of Netflix. Period.”

The devices eligible for the special pricing include the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S6 Edge, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5. The offer will launch this Friday, December 18th, and will be accessible via retail locations, by phone or through online orders. The special pricing on Samsung devices will be good through December 23rd, but the Netflix offer can be had until December 31st. If you are already a Netflix customer, you can get a 12-month credit through this deal.

Check out the full press release below.

T-Mobile Gives Customers $100 Off Samsung’s Best Smartphones, Plus a Year of Netflix

Un-carrier Unwrapped ends with gifts for all!
Get $100 off a Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge, edge+ or Note5 AND one full year of Netflix on us!

Bellevue, Washington — December 16, 2015 — T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today revealed its final gift of the Un-carrier Unwrapped holiday season and it’s for absolutely everyone.  Starting this Friday, the Un-carrier is knocking $100 off Samsung’s latest superphones – the Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge, edge+ or Note5.  To sweeten the deal, the Un-carrier is throwing in up to a full year of Netflix – more than $100 value – when you pick up any of these Samsung smartphones! With Binge On you can watch all the Netflix you want without eating up your high-speed data. It’s the gift that keeps on giving year round!

“Today we’re putting the final bow on a fantastic month of gifts to all wireless customers,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “The carriers’ holiday ‘deals’ are full of trickery and promises in exchange for a set of handcuffs and higher costs down the road. That’s not a gift, and it’s not how the Un-carrier does it. Starting this weekend, we’re giving you $100 off the top on Samsung’s hottest phones, plus a year of Netflix. Period. Happy Holidays Everyone!”

Thanks to the carriers’ inflated data charges and overages, if you don’t have T-Mobile, you’re paying a lot more for your binge watching than just the normal subscription fee. Binge watching a full season of House of Cards can eat up about 9.59 GB of high-speed data. An AT&T customer with a 5GB data bucket would use up their entire bucket and tip into overage penalties to the tune of $15 per gigabyte before the season is even done – an extra $75 on top of their monthly bill! At T-Mobile with Binge On, that same season of House of Cards would eat up exactly ZERO of your high-speed data bucket on most plans.

The Un-carrier has been in the holiday spirit this month, unwrapping holiday gifts every week as part of Un-carrier Unwrapped.  First, T-Mobile gave its Simple Choice customers three months of Unlimited LTE. Then,Sprint customers got $200 per line when they switched. And AT&T customers got a phone memory upgrade and half-off accessories. Finally, Verizon customers got up to a full year mobile viewing joy with Hulu and half-off accessories. 

This latest Un-carrier Unwrapped gift is available to everyone starting Friday, December 18th in T-Mobile stores, by phone and online. Customers can get $100 off Samsung phones through December 23rd, and customers can get up to a free year of Netflix though December 31st. For more information, visithttps://explore.t-mobile.com/samsung-phone-offer.

Offer subject to change. At participating locations; while supplies last. Qualifying service required. Netflix offer sponsored by Samsung. Follow instructions at http://www.SamsungPromotions.com to redeem. Netflix codes must be used by 3/31/16 or they will expire. Subject to Netflix Terms & Conditions.

AT&T is offering a free Galaxy S6 with the purchase of another Galaxy


If you’re looking to switch over to AT&T this month, you’re in for an awesome promotion. Until the new year starts, when you buy one of the current Galaxy devices, you’ll be able to pick up a free Galaxy S6 on a second line. That’s right, if you buy a Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge Plus or Galaxy S6 Active (which you can only get at AT&T), AT&T will credit your account for your AT&T Next payments on a 32GB Galaxy S6.

The small print here is that the free Galaxy S6 must be on a new line and if you cancel either line, the balance of that phone is due immediately (up to $950). You’ll be required to choose a qualifying plan, which AT&T says is $70/mo or more, and the bill payments will be split up over 30 months. Your credits will start after three months of service if you keep your account in good standing. This promotion ends on December 31 and is only for “well-qualified” customers.

samsung_galaxy_s6_active_10

If you’re looking to switch over to AT&T want to be tied to a Galaxy S6 for the next 30 months, this is a pretty good deal. I think this will be especially popular with those getting their first or second smartphone who aren’t jumping around to a new device a lot and just want something nice that will work and not break immediately. The Galaxy S6 is still one of the best phones out there and will be one of the best sellers this holiday season due to the Galaxy branding and build quality.

Is this a promotion you’re going to jump on? Let us know down in the comments what you think of this move from AT&T.
