Can Samsung recover from its recent stumble? I go on CNBC.com to talk about the Galaxy S6 and whether it can get back on track.
CNBC's Bertha Coombs and CNET Executive Editor Roger Cheng talk about why Samsung plans to cut the price of its Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones.

If you happen to be watching ABC's Good Morning America tomorrow, I'll be on sometime between 7:30 and 8 am ET to discuss how to properly erase your phone.

Roger, I watched it and had to comment on your advise. SPOT ON for Android. Thank you. I have been encrypting phones and then resetting them since the feature was available. I know this has saved my friends and family when they replace their phones. Without the public key, the odds of getting any data off is almost nil (unless you are the NSA). Thank you for the spreading the correct process. Thank you.

When you hear flagship phone, you think iPhone or Galaxy S. But Alcatel OneTouch wants to redefine the term.

I was too busy to watch my GMA spot this morning (thanks, T-Mobile), but I found it online.
Find out how to get rid of all your personal information when you turn in your old phone.

I applaud Motorola for having the courage to go direct to customer. Hope it works out for them. Although, as a T-Mobile customer, we're gonna miss out on carrier specific features like WiFi calling, VoLTE and RCS.

Remember the Fire Phone? Ben Fox Rubin and I take a deeper look at the reasons why it failed so quickly and spectacularly.

Is it 'lockdown' or 'lockout'?

T-Mobile is improving its text messaging, but only if you have a few select phones. And no, the iPhone isn't one of them yet.
