T-Mobile customers can snag a free year of Netflix with a Galaxy S7 for a limited time

As the world awaits the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S8, T-Mobile is making a compelling case for the Galaxy S7 with its latest promotion. The carrier is giving away a year of Netflix with the purchase or lease of a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge from now until February 7.

All customers need to do is visit Samsung’s Promotions site by February 21 — once they’ve purchased an eligible smartphone and paid any applicable sales tax or down payment, of course. From there, users can enter their device’s information and upload their receipt, and in exchange they’ll receive a single-use code the can be redeemed at Netflix’s Special Offers page. The code expires after March 31, though, so be sure to act fast.

T-Mobile has run similar deals over the past two years, when the S6 and S7 were first made available for pre-order. This time, however, it appears Samsung could push the launch of its next-generation flagship to as far back as the end of April, giving the carrier a little more time to move inventory that is about to be superseded.

Still, the imminent release of Samsung’s next big thing doesn’t make the outgoing S7 devices any less compelling. We were impressed with the S7’s gorgeous, waterproof design, powerful Snapdragon 820 processor, and vibrant AMOLED display when we reviewed it last year, and the opportunity to save $120 with a free year of Netflix only sweetens the deal.

The Galaxy S7 is currently listed at T-Mobile for a full retail price of $674, while the edge is going for $780. They are also available for installment payments of $26 and $30 over 24 months, with $50 and $60 paid upfront, respectively. The Netflix subscription in question is of the standard variety, with simultaneous streaming for up to two devices.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8 shows why Android 12L isn’t enough
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra with keyboard.

Android tablets have usually fallen behind iPads and Windows tablets when it comes to offering good tablet experiences. With Android 12L, Google is taking that particular bull by the horns. The update will roll out to Pixel phones starting next month, but Samsung's recent announcement of the Galaxy Tab S8 casts a shadow over what should be a revival for Google's tablet ambitions because it shows that the problem with Android tablets isn't really with the interface.
What's Android 12L?
To quickly recap, Google last year announced Android 12L, an initiative the company is using to make Android a better experience on tablets and foldables. The company will continue this work through Android 13 and has hopes for app developers to step in line and create apps that would work better with Android going forward. The big issue here is that Android 12L is redundant for the most part -- and the Tab S8 is a reminder of that.

Android 12L, as far as focusing on bigger screen devices goes, amounts to pretty much a user interface revamp. There's a new multi-pane interface for the lock screen and the notification center, and there's support for a dock for productivity scenarios. But none of this actually fixes problems that exist for users. If you've done any shopping for Android tablets recently, you'll notice that companies like Samsung that actually sell Android tablets have pretty much always had their device software competently tablet-optimized.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 isn’t charging as fast as it should
Galaxy S22 Plus charging port.

The Galaxy S22 series comes with two types of chargers, 25-watt adapters for the base S22 model and 45 watts for the S22+ and the S22 Ultra. However, tests with both adapters seem to indicate that they don't really make a difference to overall charging time.

When comparing the time it takes to reach a full charge with all models in the S22 line, it becomes apparent that spending the extra cash on a 45W adapter is a complete waste as all devices take the same amount of time, according to tests done by GSMArena.

Can Google’s Pixel 6 Pro camera beat the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra? I found out
Galaxy S21 Ultra and Pixel 6 Pro.

The Google Pixel 6 Pro's camera has a lot of consumer expectations behind it given the Pixel 5's success and the new Tensor processor, but it also faces a lot of work to do to compete against the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the best camera Samsung has ever put on a phone. I took both the Samsung and Google phone out for the day to take a selection of photos, to answer the question: Which Android flagship has the best camera?
Camera specs and testing procedure
The Google Pixel 6 Pro's 50-megapixel main camera is joined by a 48MP telephoto camera with 4x optical zoom, plus a 12MP wide-angle camera. How about the Galaxy S21 Ultra? It was released in January 2021, but still has an enviable specification with a 108MP main camera, a 12MP wide-angle, a 10MP telephoto camera for 3x optical zoom photos, and a 10MP periscope camera for 10x optical zoom photos.

For this comparison, photos were taken back-to-back using the automatic mode, meaning all I did in most cases was press the shutter button. I tested the main camera, wide-angle, optical zoom, portrait, and night modes, but not video. All photos have been compared on a color-calibrated monitor, then resized for a friendlier online viewing experience. Do remember this when looking at the examples below.
