Selling your iPhone 6 right now can still make you a ton of money

Let’s say you bought your iPhone 6 on launch day. It’s an improvement over the iPhone 5s, sure, but it’s not the incredible leap forward you were expecting. It’s time to make a change, but you don’t want to spend a bunch of money switching to a new phone.

You’re in luck. More →

Best iPhone 6 Case

This sleek metal bumper is easily my favorite iPhone 6 case right now

At the risk of repeating myself for the hundredth time, I hate iPhone cases. Covering up that sleek design and premium aluminum seems like a crime against good taste. Sadly, however, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have the most slippery finish known to man, and they’re both accidents waiting to happen. Because of this, people who want to avoid imminent disaster have no choice but to cover their phones with cases.

Of course, you can still do it with some style by picking the right cases made out of premium materials, and that’s where BGR comes in. More →

Galaxy S6 Price vs. iPhone 6

How Apple is making Samsung fight for every dollar with the Galaxy S6

How Apple is making Samsung fight for every dollar with the Galaxy S6

Samsung is going to start its global Galaxy S6 roll out on April 10th, a major product that will have a huge impact on the company’s bottom line this year. Samsung’s hopes are tied to both Galaxy S6 models, expensive devices that already triggered a record number of preorders from carrier partners, but Apple isn’t sitting idly by waiting for Samsung to put a dent in its iPhone 6 sales next quarter. The iPhone maker might have a variety of weapons at its disposal to keep the customers’ attention — and money — away from Samsung and on its own new iPhones and other upcoming products. More →

Galaxy S6 Vs iPhone 6

The Galaxy S6’s biggest problem isn’t the battery or removable storage, it’s the iPhone 6

The Galaxy S6’s biggest problem isn’t the battery or removable storage, it’s the iPhone 6

Samsung blew us all away earlier this month when it unveiled its next-generation flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. The phones were nothing like anything we had seen from Samsung before, and we mean that in the best way possible. The designs were different, the materials were different, and the technology inside was all new and improved. Of course, that didn’t stop a vocal minority from complaining about a few key missing features such as a user-replaceable battery and removable microSD storage. For them, these omissions were deal breakers.

As it turns out, however, the Galaxy S6’s biggest problem lies elsewhere. More →

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 Release

The Galaxy S6 isn’t yet ready to wake Samsung up from its nightmare

The Galaxy S6 isn’t yet ready to wake Samsung up from its nightmare

Announced in early March, the Galaxy S6 family seemingly won’t help Samsung gain much ground in terms of smartphone profit share, with the iPhone 6 still selling in impressive numbers. According to recent estimates, Apple is expected to sell anywhere from 54 million to 58 million iPhone units in the first calendar quarter of the year, which would be record numbers for the period.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge release won’t make its mark on Samsung’s bottom line until next quarter, starting on April 10th when they’ll hit stores in some 20 markets. More →

Who knew that watching an ad could be so enthralling? Advertisements clearly aren’t consumers’ favorite thing, but this behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to put up the giant banners that are part of Apple’s massive new iPhone campaign. The footage was captured by travel photographer Austin Mann, whose work has been featured on BGR several times in the past.

Now, Mann’s work is featured in an iPhone 6 ad on a 30-story banner hanging on the side of a skyscraper. More →

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6: Samsung is a clear winner in low-light camera comparison

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but two pictures can be worth even more. Samsung finally took the wraps off of its next-generation flagship smartphones earlier this week. The new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are easily two of the most impressive phones we’ve seen in a long, long time. The designs are gorgeous and the performance is jaw-dropping… these phones really are the total package.

But as it turns out, Samsung didn’t stop there — the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge might also feature one of the best cameras we have ever seen on a smartphone. More →

Best iPhone 6 Case

This impossibly thin iPhone 6 case is just $15 on Amazon

This impossibly thin iPhone 6 case is just $15 on Amazon

Apple says the housings on its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are made out of aluminum, but we think it’s actually some sort of ultra-slippery compound that the world has never seen before. As sleek and refined as the new iPhones look, using one without some kind of case is a recipe for disaster.

Because of that, we often share recommendations on some of the best iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus cases out there. More →

Samsung insists that its Galaxy S6 doesn’t look like an iPhone clone in real life

Samsung may have had a strong attitude on stage during the Galaxy S6 event a few days ago, hitting Apple a few times over the iPhone 6’s design and camera capabilities, but the moment when top Samsung execs has to answer a burning question came soon after. Samsung’s head of Mobile JK Shin and Samsung’s head of mobile marketing Younghee Lee talked to Korean reporters on Monday and they were asked to respond to all the iPhone 6 copycat claims. More →

Video: iPhone 6 meets a blowtorch on steroids

Forget about old fashioned drop tests and the somewhat played out “Will it blend?” video series. These days, if you really want to put an iPhone’s durability to the test, try pitting it against a 6,000-degree Acetylene torch typically used for cutting and melting metal.
