iPhone 6 Plus Vs Galaxy Note 4

iPhone 6 Plus vs. Galaxy Note 4: The ultimate camera shootout

iPhone 6 Plus vs. Galaxy Note 4: The ultimate camera shootout

BGR reviewed Samsung’s brand new Galaxy Note 4 phablet on Wednesday and in the process, we spent a good amount of time comparing Samsung’s latest and greatest to the new iPhone 6 Plus. 2014 marks the first time Samsung will have to go head to head with Apple in the phablet space, and we already know that the competition is going to be fierce. Apple is selling iPhone 6 Plus units as quickly as its manufacturing partners can build them, and every device Apple sells represents another customer in the comparatively small phablet market that won’t be buying Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4.

While we compared the two devices in a number of important areas, we didn’t spend much time comparing their class-leading cameras. Luckily, a new feature published on Thursday does a great job of just that. More →

iPad Air 2 Photos

Leak: Is this our first look at the brand new iPad Air 2?

Leak: Is this our first look at the brand new iPad Air 2?

Apple’s huge iPhone 6 and iWatch unveiling last month was probably the most hyped event Apple has ever hosted. The leaks and rumors leading up to Apple’s September press conference were off the charts, the social media chatter on launch day was crazy, and it ended up being BGR’s single biggest day of traffic ever by a shockingly wide margin. Everyone wanted to see Apple’s new iPhones (despite the fact that we had already seen them dozens of times in leaks) and find out when they would finally launch.

Fast-forward Thursday, just one month later, and the lead up to Apple’s big iPad and Mac event seems eerily quiet. Does anyone care about tablets and computers anymore? More →

The most hilarious thing you’ll see today: Conan invents amazing new emoji

It seems like people in their mid-20s and younger can no longer communicate using conventional methods such as… typing words. Instead, they string together surprisingly complex thoughts using only emoji, the tiny ideograms that first became popular in Japan and then spread across the globe like wildfire. There are already hundreds of tiny faces, people, animals, objects and more in the ever-growing emoji library, but what happens when you need to express more specific emotions with emoji?

As it turns out, Conan O’Brien has the perfect solution. More →

Leak: This is the Nexus 6

After weeks of rumors that have been stirring up a huge amount of buzz among Android enthusiasts, Wednesday is the day that Google’s next-generation Nexus 6 smartphone should finally become a reality. And truth be told, if the rumors we have seen up to this point pan out, the new supersized Nexus 6 is definitely a handset worth getting excited about.

With Google’s official announcement supposedly just hours away, the rumor mill has one last treat for us, and it’s a big one: Google’s Nexus 6 has seemingly been pictured next to an iPhone 6 Plus, giving us a good idea of just how massive this year’s Nexus smartphone really is. More →

Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 pricing may have just been revealed in a new leak

Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 pricing may have just been revealed in a new leak

Google’s Nexus 5 smartphone, pictured above, quickly became a fan favorite for enthusiastic Android fans thanks to its sleek design, capable specs and shockingly affordable price tag. But with the much rumored and hotly anticipated Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet, it looks like Google has a new game plan to try to woo Android fans. Instead of launching affordable devices with specs that place them somewhere between mid-range and high-end phones and tablets, Google’s new Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 will both be high-end devices with killer specs and hefty price tags to match, according to a new report.

Galaxy Note 4 Review

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review

It’s certainly open to debate, but I would argue that the Galaxy Note 4 is the most important flagship smartphone Samsung has ever launched. It won’t be Samsung’s fastest-selling phone and it definitely won’t ship the most units over its lifespan. The Note 4 doesn’t even necessarily break new ground like the original Galaxy Note did two years ago.

But 2014 marks the first time ever that Samsung will go up against Apple in the phablet space it helped pioneer, and whether or not Samsung’s Note 4 sales show continued growth could be a telling sign of things to come. More →

How To Protect Nude Photos

New iPhone app protects your naked pics with a brilliant optical illusion

New iPhone app protects your naked pics with a brilliant optical illusion

Older generations might be disgusted by the recent massive nude celebrity photo leak and even more recent “Snappening” leak that saw thousands of nude Snapchat photos and videos hit the web. I hear and see comments all the time from people wondering why young teens and even people in their 20s continue to exchange naked pictures and videos when hacks like these are all too common. Just as many older generations don’t understand the selfie craze, we also tend to dismiss nude photo sharing, largely because it wasn’t part of our lives growing up. But the simple fact of the matter is this: Sharing nude photos and videos with smartphones is fun and exciting, and teenagers aren’t going to stop doing it, hacks or no hacks.

All of these security breaches may encourage teens to be a bit smarter about the services and technologies they use to exchange nudes, however, and a new iPhone app has found a brilliant way to help protect racy photos. More →

10 secret things you had no idea your Android phone could do

10 secret things you had no idea your Android phone could do

You have an Android phone. You love your Android phone. Of course, there’s plenty to love about Google’s terrific mobile operating system, but much of it comes back to the simple fact that Android is open. Thanks to the way Google allows third-party developers to use nearly all of the tools and features at their disposal in Android, the sky is the limit when it comes to developing apps that add all sorts of great functionality to Android phones — and much of it is functionality that iPhone users will likely never enjoy.

But you don’t always need to install a third-party app to find exciting new features in Android. In fact, there are tons of hidden features that you probably didn’t even know your phone had. More →

Galaxy S5 Update

Leaked roadmap shows when Galaxy S5 and 12 other Samsung phones will get Android updates

Leaked roadmap shows when Galaxy S5 and 12 other Samsung phones will get Android updates

Rumors suggest Google is just days or even hours away from finally revealing Android L release details alongside its new Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet. The company previewed the latest build of its Android operating system this past summer, and the star of the show is clearly Google’s new “Material Design” that completely changes the look of Android and makes it far more sleek and modern.

But while the world waits to find out when Android L will finally start rolling out to mobile devices, a newly leaked roadmap reveals that Samsung is still hard at work trying to get the latest build of last year’s Android release on its most popular phones. More →
