Samsung’s more recent TouchWiz releases are huge improvements over their predecessors, but with a few simple tweaks, you can make them even better.

Here are three ways you can do away with Samsung’s design and get a pure Android feel on your Galaxy smartphone — without having to root or install third-party ROMs.

Samsung hasn’t quite used the curves of the Galaxy S6 edge and S6 edge+ displays as much as some users would like, but they do come with a few nice features most other smartphones don’t have. One of those is Night Clock, which displays a clock on the curved edge that’s easy to see in the night.

Here’s how you can enable it.

BlackBerry 10 has been a complete flop since it made its debut with the Z10 in early 2013, but it does deliver some nice features that I’ve been waiting for on Android for almost three years. One of those in an awesome virtual keyboard that’s terrific to type on.

Now that BlackBerry has its own Android device, that keyboard has been ported to Google’s platform — and you don’t need to buy a Priv to get your hands on it. Here’s how to download and install it on your device.

Did you know that it’s incredibly easy to access open Chrome tabs on your Android and iOS device? So if you’re reading an article on your computer and you have to dash out, you can access it later while you’re on the go without having to search for it again, type in a URL, or email links to yourself.

Here’s how.

Forget self-driving cars that will drive you to the store while you sit back watching Netflix, because where we’re going, we don’t need roads.

Google has leaked highly “confidential” plans for a new time-traveling car the company calls Project Flux.
