    Not sure about Bixby, gives you information about what your looking at.

    Shame about the lack of change in the fast charging front - quick charge 4.0 is meant to work with USB-PD, which would substantially simplify the minefield of USB chargers. If they offered that then we could finally see the same charger powering a phone and a laptop

    They straight up copied windows UI for Dex, I'm surprised MS was okay with that, could have said change it a little bit more as the MS Office team tailored the Android version for Dex so saw it beforehand.

    If if takes off & thats still a big if then it's the beginning of the end for Windows PC's perhaps quicker than people expect.

    Re: Samsung launches the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones

    Look like I need this to have that life in the video as my P8 just isn't making my life good enough...

    ...or maybe if I had an S8 I would have even less money which would take my life even further from that of the video.

    Figured it, this isn't for me is it.

    For many years mobile phones were getting smaller and smaller, now they are getting so big we'll be needing three hands to use them. Two hands to hold one and another to operate it...

    Anyone who pays more than £200 on a phone needs to be taxed heavily!

    or anybody who pays more than £17 a month on a contract to get one for 'free'

    I say £17 as that gets you a sim only deal with unlimited minutes/texts and 7GB data with EE (could be better only did a quick search).
