Got one of those Samsung flagship phones?  Well, you’d be pleased that Samsung toyed with the Always On Display (AOD) so that you have more excuses to look at that gorgeous screen. While you could always add any image to your Always On Display while displaying the date, time and any notifications,  Samsung thought they’ll make it more awesome by enabling you to install GIFs. Version 3.2.26.4 of the app enables you to set any GIF to  your AOD by opening the GIF in the Gallery app and selecting the overflow menu (…), then tapping “Set as Always on Display image”.  However, GIFs do come in various lengths and if the application detects that what you’ve picked is too long, it’ll prompt you to trim it down. Also, the GIFs only animate once upon locking the display. It then locks to one frame after the GIF cycle is done. The…

Samsung has just launched the newest member of the Galaxy Note lineup, the Galaxy Note 8 with an enhanced S-Pen and a new dual camera system. Hands-on Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGdq3OrG8XE Design and Build Quality The Galaxy Note 8 sports the same form factor and overall design as the S8 and S8+, and I think that’s a good thing. The phone feels very solid and well-built, and the Infinity display just looks gorgeous with very minimal bezels and curved edges. The display responds well to the s pen, and buttons on both sides are tactile. There’s a dedicated button for Dixby, Samsung’s own voice and visual assistant.
