Video: Want to see what happens when an iPhone 5s gets run over by a train? Of course you do

The iPhone 5s is amazingly solid for a smartphone made entirely of glass and ultra-thin aluminum. It looks great, it feels great and it can survive its fair share of drops as long as it doesn’t hit a hard surface on its corner. But can it survive being run over by a speeding train? More →

Galaxy S5 Vs iPhone 5s

Ouch: Eight-month-old iPhone 5s outsold the Galaxy S5 in its first full month of sales

Ouch: Eight-month-old iPhone 5s outsold the Galaxy S5 in its first full month of sales

As Samsung’s recent second-quarter earnings pre-announcement made clear, the company’s smartphone business is facing some trouble right now. At the low end, Samsung is getting squeezed by several aggressive budget vendors selling dirt cheap phones in emerging markets. At the top, Samsung is still facing intense competition from Apple and its insanely popular iPhone lineup. In fact, demand for Apple’s flagship iPhone 5s is still so huge that sales of Samsung’s latest hero phone, the Galaxy S5, couldn’t even top iPhone 5s sales in the Galaxy phone’s first full month on store shelves.

iPhone 6 Rumors

New leaked images show huge size difference between iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s

New leaked images show huge size difference between iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s

If one were to wager on which new smartphone will be the most popular model of 2014, the smart money would likely be on Apple’s upcoming new iPhone 6. With pent-up demand for an iPhone with a larger display dating back several years now, Apple will almost certainly sell as many new iPhones as its partners can manage to churn out of their factories when the iPhone 6 finally launches later this year.

Just how much bigger will the iPhone 6 be? We’ve seen plenty of comparisons between previous-generation iPhones and fake iPhone 6 mockups, but now we have another basis for comparison that uses seemingly authentic iPhone 6 front panels to measure the size of Apple’s upcoming new iPhone model against current phones.

Looking to upgrade your old iPhone 5? Don’t trade it in at an Apple Store

Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 and iPhone phablet are expected to be significantly larger than the company’s current smartphones. Millions of customers will be delighted by the fact that they can now purchase an iPhone with a bigger display, but millions more don’t want a larger smartphone. For them, now may be the perfect time to upgrade their old iPhone 5 handsets — but trading in your iPhone 5 at the Apple Store for credit toward your new iPhone 5c or iPhone 5s is no longer a good idea.

Android Vs iPhone

This is what it’s like for an Android fanboy to switch to an iPhone 5s

This is what it’s like for an Android fanboy to switch to an iPhone 5s

The Android vs. iOS debate will rage on until one or both of these mobile platforms are no longer market leaders. In the meantime, each operating system offers dozens of important pros and cons when compared to its rival. Android’s open nature allows for a much wider range of functionality in third-party apps, for instance, and you can see numerous examples of this in our series on great Android apps that do amazing things the iPhone can’t. On the other side of the fense, iOS offers a much smoother and more refined user experience with an app ecosystem that is second to none.

So, what is it like for a “fanboy” to make the jump from one platform to the other? More →

5.5-inch iPhone 6 model compared to iPhone 5s and Android phablets in new HD video

We have seen several videos of mockups said to accurately represent Apple’s 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model, but we’ve never seen one quite like this. A number of reports from top news agencies state that Apple is working on not one but two new iPhone models that will debut in 2014. The flagship iPhone 6 is believed to feature a brand new design and a 4.7-inch display, and then an even bigger iPhone phablet is expected to debut with a similar design and a 5.5-inch screen.

Now, a model believed to be a close replica of the larger 5.5-inch iPhone phablet has been compared to the iPhone 5s along with several Android phablets in a new ultra high-definition video. More →

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think about a Samsung smartphone? A giant phablet? A gorgeous screen? A plasticky look and feel?
