Now I’ve seen everything: Windows 10 running on an Android iPhone 5s clone

Microsoft has a daring but very clever plan to turn Android users into Windows 10 customers without any of them having to actually buy new phones. Instead, Google has figured out a way to install Windows 10 on an Android device, and this plan could soon help it convince certain smartphone fans to try out its mobile operating system on their existing Android handsets.

Apple Market Share

The iPhone 6 is succeeding wildly where the iPhone 5c failed

The iPhone 6 is succeeding wildly where the iPhone 5c failed

Remember back in 2013 when Apple launched a device called the iPhone 5c that was supposed to be a lower cost device that could claw back some market share from Android, especially in emerging markets such as China? Well sales of the 5c were disappointing for Apple and the device did nothing to slow Android’s march toward dominance. However, Apple now knows that it didn’t need a cheaper iPhone — it just needed a bigger one.

Best iPhone 6 Case

Do you love the iPhone 6 but miss the iPhone 5’s design? You need this $14 case

Do you love the iPhone 6 but miss the iPhone 5’s design? You need this $14 case

There is no question that Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus include one of the best looking designs of the year. They’re shockingly thin and sleek, with smooth round edges that replace the hard lines from the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. Sure there are a couple of curious design decisions to be found, but Apple’s new iPhones are still beautiful devices that are a cut above almost every other smartphone on the market.

Even still, there are some people who miss the look of last year’s iPhone 5s and the three iPhone models that came before it. What’s more, the iPhone 6 is an accident waiting to happen because it is so unbelievably slippery.

Now, you can kill two birds with one stone for as little as $13.99 thanks to a new case from Elago. More →

iPhone 6 Plus Sales

The iPhone 6 Plus is already paying off Apple more than the iPhone 5c ever did

The iPhone 6 Plus is already paying off Apple more than the iPhone 5c ever did

When Apple launched two new iPhone models in 2013, fans weren’t exactly elated. The “budget” device that everyone was expecting turned out to be the slightly more affordable iPhone — effectively an iPhone 5 in a colorful plastic body. Refusing to make the same mistake twice, Apple decided to make its next secondary model a premium one, resulting in the iPhone 6 Plus. Based on the latest surveys, it looks like Apple’s decision paid off. More →

iPhone 6 vs. iPhone 6 Plus vs. iPhone 5s: The definitive camera showdown

Apple’s industry-leading iPhones are known for several things. Stunning designs and simple but powerful software are both somewhere near the top of the list, but the iPhone line also just so happens to represent some of the most widely used cameras on the planet. While other smartphone makers have long since passed Apple’s iPhones when it comes to megapixel counts, the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus still arguably represent the most impressive smartphone cameras in the world.

But are the cameras in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus really that much better than the one in Apple’s previous-generation iPhone 5s? More →

The only phone more popular in Japan than the iPhone 5s is the iPhone 6

The only phone more popular in Japan than the iPhone 5s is the iPhone 6

It’s never much of a shock any more when Apple’s latest iPhone dominates the sales charts in the days and weeks following its release. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were no exceptions, breaking sales records previously set by the iPhone 5s, but unlike the iPhone 5c, the 6 Plus doesn’t appear to be a clunker. In fact, Forbes is reporting that both phones struck a chord overseas where the iPhone 6 has taken Japan by storm. More →

Samsung Galaxy Alpha Review

Hands on: Samsung’s iPhone 5 is absolutely beautiful

Hands on: Samsung’s iPhone 5 is absolutely beautiful

Some hailed Samsung’s new Galaxy Alpha smartphone as an “iPhone killer” ahead of its debut last month. Since Samsung’s smartphones had all been made out of somewhat flimsy feeling plastics prior to the Alpha’s unveiling, it was understandable that some fans would get overly enthusiastic about what, at the time, was rumored to be the first Samsung smartphone to feature a beautiful aluminum housing.

Of course, now that the phone has been made official, we know that it’s most certainly not an iPhone killer. Instead, it’s a two-year-old iPhone. More →

iPhone 5c Flop

It appears that the iPhone 5c experiment won’t soon be repeated

It appears that the iPhone 5c experiment won’t soon be repeated

Notice anything unusual about this week’s Apple keynote? You know, aside from the first Apple phablet and confirmation of a wrist-worn wearable? This year’s mix of iPhone product is dramatically different from that issued at Apple’s prior September event, and I suspect that it speaks volumes about where the company will (and won’t) go moving forward. When the iPhone 5c was unveiled, it felt very forced. It wasn’t a low-cost iPhone — a product that could’ve driven up Apple’s marketshare in emerging markets. It was a watered down iPhone 5s, a phone that left many scratching their heads as to who exactly it was for.

This year, Apple still took the wraps off of two new phones, but with one key distinction from 2013: both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are premium products. More →
