Canadians are paying for more than just the exchange rate with Samsung’s S21 series

Samsung recently introduced the Galaxy S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra, its latest flagship smartphones. These devices start at $ 1,129, which seems like a lot of money, but last year's models started at $ 1,319, so there is definitely a noticeable decrease in price. The price cut is likely due to the lower-resolution displays featured on the S21 and S21 +, the polycarbonate back on the S21, and Samsung no longer includes headphones and a charger in the box. That said, the phones could have been even more affordable. When comparing our prices to the US, there appears to be an additional Canadian premium for the S21 series. Below are the current Canadian prices for the Galaxy S21 series:The base model of the Galaxy S21 in the United St...

Galaxy S21 series will have ‘native’ Google messages, but it’s tricky

During its Unpacked event on January 14, Samsung took the time to highlight a new partnership with Google that will make it appear that some of the search giant's software technologies are gaining prominence in Samsung's newest phones. Samsung briefly brought in Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google's senior vice president of Android, Chrome, Chrome OS and Play, to discuss the partnership. First, Lockheimer discussed a deeper integration of Google Duo and Message in Samsung's S21 line. It appears that Messages will be "native" on the S21 series, but it will not be the default. In addition to including Google Messages on the S21 line, Lockheimer also detailed a new 'TalkBack' screen reader experience that would launch first on the S21 line. Dieter Bohn, Executive Editor of The edge, noted in ...

Samsung Galaxy S21 series specifications: what’s new compared to last year?

At Samsung's Unpacked event on January 14, the South Korean phone maker unveiled its three new flagships, the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra. While there is a lot to be excited about with these new devices, it's also worth taking a moment to compare them to their predecessors, the Galaxy S20, S20 +, and S20 Ultra. There are many different things this time, and the most important is the price. The base Galaxy S21 is cheaper than last year's S20, the S21 + $ 179 cheaper than the S20 +, and the S21 Ultra is $ 200 cheaper than the S20 Ultra. Considering that many felt the S20 line was too expensive, a drop in price is welcome. However, some may feel that the corresponding compensations are not worth it.Starting with the S21 and S21 +, both devices have displays wit...
