One fan’s suggestion for fixing one of Android’s most annoying problems

One of the things we Android fans have grown very fond of over the years has been the universal Back button that helps us navigate between web pages, apps and much more. However, we’ve also found that the Back button can be somewhat unpredictable in different settings, which can be an annoying issue for a feature that’s so central to the Android experience. To improve this situation, Android user Chris Lacy has put together a detailed proposal for making the Back button work more consistently and effectively across different use cases. More →

iPhone 6 disappoints in yet another battery life test

If battery life is the single most important thing you’re looking for in a smartphone, it looks like you probably shouldn’t get the iPhone 6… though you might want to give the iPhone 6 Plus a try. Tom’s Guide has just run some battery life tests on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus that compare both devices to other rival smartphones and have found that while the iPhone 6 compares unfavorably with similarly sized smartphones, the 6 Plus does even better than comparable phablets.

You have to check out some of the amazing pictures being taken with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

iPhones may not have as many megapixels as a lot of cameras on high-end Android phones, but repeated photography shootouts have shown that the device’s camera typically punches above its weight and can still deliver fantastic photos despite having lesser top-line specs. Now with the debut of both the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, it looks like Apple has delivered its best smartphone camera yet and fans over at MacRumors this past weekend started posting some stunning photos they’ve taken with their new iPhones.

Apple Beats Music Streaming App

New report claims Apple is already planning to shut down Beats Music

New report claims Apple is already planning to shut down Beats Music

Well, this is somewhat unexpected — TechCrunch’s sources are saying that Apple is planning to shut down the Beats Music streaming app that it acquired when it bought Beats for $3 billion earlier this year. The only way that this report would make any kind of sense would be if Apple were simply folding Beats Music into iTunes — there is simply no way that Apple would consider abandoning a music streaming service at a time when it’s working to regain some of the influence over the music industry that it’s lost ever since the rise of Pandora, Spotify and other popular streaming services.

Frequent Apple critic says the company has finally upped its game with the iPhone 6

Now that he’s gotten his hands on the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6, however, he’s happy to report that Apple has finally taken a big leap forward in terms of display quality that he’s been waiting to see since the release of the iPhone 4 all the way back in 2010.
