Galaxy Note 9 – specs and features

Since the Note 7 debacle, we have seen Samsung take the safe road with their Note line-up, but here they are again pushing boundaries again like we’ve known them to do.

Many apps have beenContinue reading “Bixby button can now be completely disabled!”

Galaxy S8 and Note 8 users can now disable the Bixby button.

Samsung announced Bixby right before its launch of the Galaxy S8, but the digital assistant didn’t become available to users until recently.
