Samsung's February 11 "Samsung Unpacked" event featured several new devices, including its next attempt at a foldable smartphone: The Galaxy Z Flip. Unlike the Galaxy Fold's vertically folding screen, the Z Flip folds horizontally like old-school flip phones—not to mention Motorola's recently released Razr smartphone.
Our smartphones can display tons of information and provide helpful shortcuts even when they're locked, and Google Assistant's Ambient Mode is worth trying out. It allows you to use several of your phone's best features without having to unlock it, saving you precious time and the annoyance of fumbling around with your finger to authenticate into your device.
Android 10 is finally available on several of the latest Samsung smartphones via the One UI 2.0 update, but as many Samsung owners discovered, the latest version of Android did not support the One UI's Good Lock customisation app at launch. Luckily, the app was recently updated with support for Android 10 and One UI 2.0, and you download the new version from the Galaxy Store right now.
As an iPhone user with a Gmail address, I'm envious of all the Android owners who get to use dark mode in their Gmail apps.
