Ultimate drop test showdown: iPhone 7 vs. iPhone 6s vs. Galaxy S7 Edge

The iPhone 7 is the likely fastest smartphone in the world. Apple is going to sell tens of millions of units, despite the fact that many thought the new model would be “boring.” But forgetting the new camera and the faster processor — how does the iPhone 7 compare to two other recent smartphones in a drop test?

Is iOS 10 faster than iOS 9?

Is iOS 10 faster than iOS 9?

iOS 10 is out and you should be able to install it on any iPhone or iPad made in the past few years. But is it worth upgrading to iOS 10 on older iPhones? Will the new operating system bring any performance issues, as we’ve seen in the past with similar upgrades? A video comparison between iOS 10 and iOS 9.3.5 shows us how the two different operating systems work on every iPhone from iPhone 5 all the way up to Apple’s iPhone 6s. More →

32GB iPhone 6s Price Release Date

The 32GB iPhone 6s is finally a thing, but you should avoid it like the plague

The 32GB iPhone 6s is finally a thing, but you should avoid it like the plague

Apple on Thursday unveiled the iPhone 7 family complete with release date and prices. In the process, Apple discounted the aging iPhone 6s, while the even older iPhone 6 was discontinued. There’s nothing out of the ordinary with that. That’s exactly how Apple does things. But the iPhone maker came out with an iPhone version that so many people wanted last year, a 32GB iPhone 6s that Apple never made, choosing instead to somewhat force buyers to pick the next best thing, a 64GB iPhone priced $100 extra.

Ahead of the iPhone 7 launch, the iPhone 6s is still the smartphone king

In a few short hours, Apple will unveil the iPhone 7. There is a healthy amount of skepticism surrounding the new model, with most reports indicating that the iPhone 7 will be the least notable upgrade ever released.

But before you become too concerned for Apple, know that the iPhone 6s is the still most popular phone in the world by a pretty huge margin.

Benchmark leak: The iPhone 7 will be the fastest phone you can buy

Benchmark leak: The iPhone 7 will be the fastest phone you can buy

The iPhone doesn’t seem like it should be the most powerful mobile device money can buy when compared to top Android devices. On paper, many of them offer better specs. However, in real-life tests and benchmarks, the iPhone always seems to outscore the best phones made by Apple’s top rivals. The iPhone 7 is also expected to follow in its predecessors’ footsteps, and crush recent competitors in tests.

A leaked screenshot showing a Geekbench score for the new iPhone seems to suggest the device will obliterate rivals once again, and it might be the first real iPhone 7 benchmark to hit the web after various other fake listings were posted online. More →

iPhone 7 Supply Price Cuts

It looks like Apple can still get away with just about anything

It looks like Apple can still get away with just about anything

If there’s one thing that’s certain about the next iPhones, it’s that Apple will make plenty of money off them. Even if the devices are going to be “boring” to some people. Even if they fail to set a new sales record. The iPhone 7 will still be a huge cash cow for the company, and Apple is doing everything it can to protect its profits while also dealing with slowing iPhone sales. Apple suppliers will be the first to suffer alongside the company, and a new report reveals that Apple is squeezing component makers to protect its margins. What’s interesting is that suppliers may complain about Apple’s desire to cut prices and orders at the same time, but there’s really nothing they can do about it. More →

iPhone 7 Vs Note 7

Does it even matter that last year’s iPhone 6s is so much faster than the new Galaxy Note 7?

Does it even matter that last year’s iPhone 6s is so much faster than the new Galaxy Note 7?

By on August 26, 2016 at 10:45 AM.

This past Monday we shared a video that showed a performance test pitting Samsung’s brand new Galaxy Note 7 against Apple’s year-old iPhone 6s. Instead of relying on benchmark testing to compare the two phones, this particular test used a different method intended to compare their performance during real-world usage. The test wasn’t scientific by any means, but the unique format actually does to a pretty decent job of comparing two phones in a real-world setting. Benchmark tests, after all, really only test the capabilities of a smartphone when it’s pushed to its limits. How often do you push your phone to its limits in the real world?

In this aforementioned performance test, Apple’s year-old iPhone positively clobbered the brand-spanking-new Galaxy Note 7. Apple fans and Android fans have all been quite vocal about the results since then, but does this test even really matter? More →

iPhone 6 Plus Touch Disease

‘Bendgate’ strikes again, but this time it’s called Touch Disease

‘Bendgate’ strikes again, but this time it’s called Touch Disease

There’s a new issue affecting plenty of iPhone users, one that Apple is still keeping a tight lid on. Specifically, the “Touch Disease” is an iPhone 6 Plus condition that affects the phone’s TouchID sensor and the screen. Users report a flickering gray bar along the top of the screen and a faulty TouchID sensor. Apple doesn’t have a repair plan for the issue, which seems to be widespread and affecting mostly 5.5-inch devices. But third-party repair shops can fix the problem, and a report explains why it all happened. It appears that Bendgate problem Apple had to deal with soon after the iPhone 6 launched is back. More →

The iPhone 7 will obliterate the Galaxy Note 7 and every other smartphone

By on August 23, 2016 at 10:54 AM.

There are just a few weeks left before Apple finally unveils this year’s new iPhones, and we already think we know what the company has in store for us. By all accounts, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are going to be so much more exciting than you think. Disregarding all the leaks and rumors, and looking at how Apple does things when it comes to the iPhone, I can tell you a few things about the iPhone 7. It’ll have better cameras and a better CPU/GPU than any previous iPhone – and these are two things Apple always insists on while presenting a new iPhone. And while Apple might not make this point on stage, I’ll bet you a rare Pokemon that the iPhone 7 will be the fastest smartphone in town this year. What makes me so sure? It’s all because of that iPhone 6s vs. Galaxy Note 7 speed test video we saw yesterday. More →

Galaxy Note 7 vs. iPhone 6 Speed Test

Samsung’s hot new Galaxy Note 7 still isn’t as fast as last year’s iPhone 6s

Samsung’s hot new Galaxy Note 7 still isn’t as fast as last year’s iPhone 6s

Yes, the Galaxy Note 7 is gorgeous, and it’s the phablet to beat this year. Check out our in-depth Galaxy Note 7 review if you want to learn about all of the fantastic features that make Samsung’s new phone so great. But the smartphone isn’t the fastest handset around, despite all its cutting-edge tech. It may very well do better in benchmark tests than its Android peers, but when it comes to finally taking down last year’s iPhone in real-world speed tests – something no flagship has been able to do – the Galaxy Note 7 fails miserably.
