iFixit: We’re Ending Our Samsung Collaboration

www.ifixit.com We’re Ending Our Samsung Collaboration | iFixit News

It’s not us, it’s you. It’s with a heavy wrench that we have decided to end our partnership with Samsung. Despite a huge amount of effort, Samsung’s approach to repairability does not align with our mission.

Google announced the Pixel Tablet almost a year ago to the date, only to then release it in June at a starting price of $499. That starting price included Google’s weird docking station for the tablet, a docking station severely lacking in features and that most of us would have skipped if...

Mishaal Rahman and I have hands-on the Samsung Galaxy S24 series. Ask us anything!
  • If you're still fine using your S8 by all means, no reason to upgrade. The point I was trying to make was that the storage issue was misinformation.

    What it boiled down to was two main things: the device showing the advertised storage converted from GB to GiB but displayed as GB, and users not granting the proper permission for the Device Care causing storage taken up by apps to be lumped into the system storage. Samsung later updated devices so users wouldn't be confused.

  • Both materials feel cool to the touch when initially held. I'd say the titanium is a bit more grippier which might be relevant if you like to use your phone without a case.

    The colours are matched more on the back and frame for the S24/+ compared to the S24U.

  • One UI doesn't use that much more space compared to other skins if you judge by the size of the super partition. Unfortunately, ArsTechnica jumped the gun on the topic without doing proper research.

    I'll edit this comment later with a list of pre-installed apps on the US unlocked model later.

  • Samsung's Brand New Cutting-Edge Foldable OLED Technology
  • Noticed a few things here:

    -They're still advertising UPC Plus which means there probably hasn't been any changes from the Fold4. Software processing for the camera might be different though.

    -They're not advertising Eco² OLED which means it's probably still using an Eco² OLED Plus display. I was hoping for a third generation since they announced a brighter inner display. That probably means it's the same panel found in the Fold4 which was likely artificially limited, similar to what Samsung did with the S21 Ultra and S22 Ultra.

    -The fold testing numbers are the same compared to the Fold4 found here. They did manage to maintain the same durability with a new waterdrop hinge at least.

    Also if you were wondering, the Flip5 crease is similar to the Flip4, while the Fold5 crease feels a lot more subtle compared to the Fold4. I had hands-on with the Flip5 for a few days, and currently have a Fold5 review unit, all provided by Samsung.

  • The screen protector feels like glass. It's been improved ever since the Fold4. I used the Fold3 and Fold4 for around 6 months, and managed to keep the screen protector pristine. You can probably indent it if you try hard enough, but something like fingernail scrolling is fine.

  • We mostly focused on the foldables, but I imagine the switch from 8 Gen 1 to 8 Gen 2 will make a big difference. The 8 Gen 1 is a hot inefficient mess of a chip, while the 8 Gen 2 is an ideal cool efficient chip. It will definitely do wonders for performance and battery life. The peak brightness for all the tablets have improved as well. They're advertised with 750/650/930 nits for the Tab S9/S9+/S9 Ultra.
