    News arrived last month of a potentially serious hole in how Exynos-based Android handsets let apps access system memory, giving them essentially free rein. Samsung responded to the discovery within a matter of days, promising software updates to correct the situation with affected devices "as quickly as possible". Now, less than a month later, we're beginning to see some of those updates arrive for Samsung users in the States. Samsung already got the ball rolling on this a couple weeks back, when users in the UK started receiving fixes for their Galaxy S III handsets. Now that we're ...

    In mid-June, we were tipped-off to the forthcoming arrival of a new white version of HTC's EVO 4G LTE on Sprint, revealed in a leaked screenshot of a system tracking the carrier's warehouse inventory. Just a couple days later, Sprint itself seemed to acknowledge the model's existence, putting up an ad on its site advertising both the EVO 4G LTE and the Epic 4G Touch (pictured above), with both models depicted in white. We were wondering if that meant Sprint would soon follow-up with official confirmation of the model, but instead it quickly modified the image to display the standard black ...

    Between voice minutes, an SMS package, and a data plan, the cost of wireless service adds up fast. That's why we're so excited when we hear about new ideas for cutting the cost of owning a smartphone, especially when they're set to arrive with unlimited service. In recent months, we've been talking about Republic Wireless, which is trying to offer $19 all-inclusive plans with unlimited data by trying to offload the bulk of its bandwidth onto private WiFi networks. A big beta test is getting underway this summer, so we'll hopefully get a better sense of how it will perform, but if you're in ...

    As the past generation of Android smartphones ever-so-slowly starts receiving updates to bring them forward to Ice Cream Sandwich, we've heard plenty of promises from both manufacturers and carriers about which devices would end up making the Android 4.0 cut, and which would be left behind. Today we've got some updated info on the manufacturer side of things, with Samsung publishing a carrier-by-carrier breakdown of which models would be seeing ICS updates in the States. Since we've already heard commentary about many of these models and their prospects for ICS before, this document isn't ...

    Back in September Samsung was happy to announce that it sold 10 million Galaxy S II units just to follow-up in January that its home market, South Korea, contributed with five million of its own. Now they're happy to announce yet another milestone. 20 million Samsung Galaxy S II devices (or variants) have been sold globally which makes the device Samsung's best-selling phone ever. The original Galaxy S was the previous record holder but the newer version and its Super AMOLED Plus screen and sexy looks managed to dethrone it. We're looking forward to seeing the Samsung Galaxy S III and ...

    After the Samsung Galaxy S II had its official (but not final) Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs leaked one after the other, rumor had it that the Sprint variant, the Epic 4G Touch had some ICS goodness in the works. Now that ROM seems to have made its way into the forums. The Stock ROM, FB09, deodexed and pre-rooted has been uploaded containing Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich, just like its European cousin. If you want to try this out on your Epic 4G Touch (while you understand that there's a risk involved of you permanently damaging it), you can head over to the source link below where you will ...

    Sprint's Samsung Galaxy S II variant, the Epic 4G Touch, may soon find itself on the receiving end of an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich. We've already heard a rumor that Samsung will start distributing Android 4.0 updates to the GS2 in early March. While that may be the case, we're likely to see the international version of the phone get its update first, and US carriers may end up lagging behind. That's why it's reassuring to check out today's find, and learn a little more about the progress underway towards Epic 4G Touch Ice Cream Sandwich. A pair of recently-uncovered User Agent Profiles ...

    Just like in the previous Samsung ad -- where people got Samsunged -- we still don't know who these other people are and what their phone preference is. Maybe you can figure it out from the ads below. In the first one Samsung is emphasizing on the Galaxy S II's voice-to-text ability. It's clearly not aimed at people standing in line for the Apple iPhone 4S because Siri is able to do much more than sending a text message to someone in your Contacts based on what you dictate, without touching the screen. The other ad is about the 4G capability of the Samsung Galaxy S II. Check them out below ...

    A recent iGR study indicates that Samsung is the preferred brand in the U.S. when it comes to devices powered by Google's Android operating system. Motorola, HTC and LG are coming next with low-cost phone makers ZTE and Huawei lower down the list. The report also unveils that 47% of those in the U.S. that have a smartphone chose Android with the iPhone coming in second at 24%. The study shows that from those who chose Android as their platform, 45% actually made their decision based on a research that led them to specifically select an Android device. 27% of Android users made their ...

    Samsung's latest ad tells a new story that goes down in the same spot like in the rest of the campaign; people are queued up, even sleeping in front of a store, waiting for a new phone to be available, watching the first unboxing to realize it looks like the one before? We have absolutely no idea who these people are or which device they are waiting for but maybe you can figure it out. While waiting in line someone gets a charger from the roommate who happens to rock a Samsung Galaxy S II. The phone announces at one point that the owner has "arrived at destination"; the Samsung Galaxy S II ...

    Users of the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint recently received an update that, amongst other changes, removed the controversial Carrier IQ software from their phones. We knew that Sprint was going to be making clean-up from this whole Carrier IQ fiasco a priority, and that we'd start seeing such updates arrive to strip the carrier's phones of the offending software. We're not sure if they'll be the very next to see the same treatment, but a rumor says that Samsung's Epic 4G and Epic 4G Touch will be on the receiving end of updates before the month is out, with at least one of them saying goodbye to ...

    MIUI ROMs or ports offer a different user experience than what you'd expect from a classic Android. At the beginning, it was a Chinese customized version of Android, borrowing stuff from several manufacturer customizations, but quickly became the preferred way to go for many Android power-users. It you have a Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, Sprint's Samsung Galaxy S II, and you'd like to try out a MIUI ROM, head over to the source link to check one out. You'll find there an official MIUI release complete with download links and feedback if you are rooted and have an itchy finger looking ...

    We kicked-off last week by bringing you the first look at press renders of the Samsung Epic 4G Touch on Sprint all decked-out in white. Considering the other Galaxy S II carrier variants that have arrived in the US already got their chance to try on a new white shell, the Epic 4G Touch started to seem like it was really dragging its feet. We were thinking that the phone might come out following a CES debut, but some rumors suggested that the phone would be available just a bit earlier, on January 8. That suggestion seemed to be reinforced by the appearance of the same date on the phone's ...

    With AT&T and T-Mobile having already seen their Samsung Galaxy S II variants show up in special white editions. it was only a matter of time before the Epic 4G Touch on Sprint got the same treatment. What is somewhat surprising is that Epic, the first of the US variants to go on sale, will be the last one to get whited out: it doesn't look like we can expect this SKU until early next year, after what is likely to be a CES debut. Any guesses as to when we'll see the launch of Verizon's inevitable white Galaxy Nexus?

    Last time we heard of the Sprint Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch in relation with a software fix it was about a user leaking the patch which tried to solve the signal loss problem. Now Sprint made an official refresh available and should be hitting devices as we speak. The new version, S:D710.0.5S.EK02, is dated December 7 and should be fixing the 4G Sprint hotspot disconnecting issues users were experiencing while in a phone call. Also, a fix for the radio losing signal until reboot is also in the changelog. Make sure to check for the refresh and apply it as soon as it is available for ...
