New video – Samsung T5 Review

Storage can be a big deal for a lot of people – even when you aren’t editing and producing 4k videos.  So, for a price, Samsung has a variety of solutions.  If you think that you might need some more storage for files, photos, or videos of family and friends, the T5 should be on your list.  There are cheaper options out there, but for a certain group of folks, the T5 is among the best available options.

Check out the video at the link above, and as always, feel free to leave us a comment here or on the channel if you have questions.  Thanks for watching!

More information is starting to leak out about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ devices, not the least of which is that the devices will feature a new camera, and different internal specs for their respective sizes.  While this isn’t new for those in the Apple world (the iPhone 8 and 8+ have different camera modules and features) it would be a first for the Android phone maker Samsung, and probably isn’t a great trend in general.

So here we go – Samsung looks to be ready to unveil the latest in their Galaxy line of smartphones during the Mobile World Congress event taking place near the end of next month.  As previous leaks have indicated, Samsung will be making some interesting iterative changes with their new Galaxy S9, not the least of which is some camera stuff (as noted in their launch announcement image above) – while there won’t be a ton of cosmetic changes (other than moving the fingerprint sensor), this will still be Samsung’s “newest/latest/best” and will likely sell in large numbers.

Who else is looking forward to seeing the new Galaxy phone?  Let us know below in the comments – and stay tuned here for more details.
