Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 vs. HTC One M9: The results of this speed test were completely unexpected

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 vs. HTC One M9: The results of this speed test were completely unexpected

By about 3 hours ago.

When it comes to flagship smartphones, there are basically three main contenders — though a potential fourth was just unveiled on Tuesday morning by LG. Until we’ve spent some time with the G4, however, the Galaxy S6 (and S6 edge), HTC One M9 and iPhone 6 are as good as it gets for discerning smartphone users looking for the cream of the crop.

There has been extensive testing since the One M9 and Galaxy S6 debuted earlier this year, and we’ve seen a common theme emerge: the Galaxy S6 crushes the competition when it comes to raw power and the iPhone 6 is the best in the business when it comes to gaming.

But do these test results carry over to real life? More →

Apple Watch makes the worst thing about the iPhone 6 even worse

Apple Watch makes the worst thing about the iPhone 6 even worse

Apple’s latest iPhones are, without question, the company’s most impressive iPhones to date. The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus both feature sleek designs, stunning screens and shockingly strong performance that manages to crush most rival smartphones despite Apple’s decision to stick with a dual-core chipset and 1GB of RAM.

But there is one area where the smaller iPhone model in particular definitely lags behind much of the competition, and it looks like the problem is being exacerbated by the brand new Apple Watch. More →

LG’s G4 might be even more expensive than the Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are Samsung’s best phones to date, and they’re also the company’s most expensive phones to date. In fact, they’re priced even higher than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. If you thought LG’s upcoming flagship device would beat the Galaxy S6 on price, then you might be surprised. At least that’s what a new report from South Korean publication ETNews claims. More →

iPhone Security Flaw

Security flaw lets attackers cripple your iPhone and there’s no way to stop them

Security flaw lets attackers cripple your iPhone and there’s no way to stop them

Wondering how difficult it is for attackers to cripple your iPhone? The answer isn’t going to make you happy — in a nutshell, all the have to do is create a Wi-Fi network. That’s right, thanks to a newly detailed security flaw in iOS, malicious hackers can send an iPhone into an endless reboot loop simply by creating a Wi-Fi network. And the worst part is that iPhones will connect to these networks automatically, and the only way to stop it is to disable Wi-Fi completely. More →

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 face off in performance tests – and the results may shock you

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 face off in performance tests – and the results may shock you

Pitting a brand new octa-core monster of a flagship Android phone with 3GB of RAM against a dual-core iPhone with 1GB of RAM doesn’t seem like it should be a fair fight. As we saw in a number of performance tests ahead of the Galaxy S6’s debut and following its launch, Samsung’s new flagship smartphone crushes every other phone on the planet in a number of key areas.

When it comes to gaming, however, performance tests paint an entirely different picture that might really surprise you. More →

Galaxy S6 Vs iPhone 6

Reports that iPhone 6 sales declined because of the Galaxy S6 are ridiculous

Reports that iPhone 6 sales declined because of the Galaxy S6 are ridiculous

By on April 21, 2015 at 10:43 AM.

Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones are fantastic handsets. In fact, they’re probably the most impressive Android smartphones the world has ever seen. As we said in our Galaxy S6 review, these are easily the most premium smartphones Samsung has ever built, and they feature performance that is miles better than any other Android phone on the market.

It is entirely possible that the launch of Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge did, in fact, eat into sales of Apple’s flagship iPhone 6. But the data flying around on Tuesday morning that’s being cited in reports doesn’t actually support that theory at all. More →

The incredible ‘gravity-defying’ iPhone 6 case is coming to Galaxy S6 too

The Zero G case for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has already made an impression on Kickstarter fans, raising almost $70,000 with 12 days left in the campaign. But, unfortunately, the case that can adhere to any flat surface without falling was initially only compatible with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, meaning users who prefer other phones wouldn’t have been able to use one.

Principal Confiscates iPhone 6 Video

Watch: Principal refuses to give student’s iPhone 6 back to her parent, offers a flip phone as compensation

It’s perfectly fair for a school to confiscate a student’s iPhone while they’re in class. But once that student leaves the building, schools normally give their devices back to them. And if they don’t, then we definitely expect their devices to be returned once the student’s parent shows up to claim it. However, this wasn’t the case for one parent who recently went to pick up his daughter’s confiscated iPhone 6 at her school and was told that he couldn’t have it back and was then offered a flip phone as compensation.

There are plenty of interesting iPhone 6 cases to choose from if you’re looking to protect your handset against accidental drops, but the Zero G is something else, as it packs a brilliant new feature. The case, currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, doesn’t just wrap around the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for added shock resistance — it also sticks to tables or even vertical surfaces, seemingly defying gravity in the process.
