The chairman of Google is an unashamed iPhone user

It normally shouldn’t matter what smartphone a person chooses to use, but when the executive chairperson of one of the biggest tech conglomerates in the world says they use a product from the competition, well, it kind of does. In this case, we’re looking at former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, currently the executive chairman of Alphabet, the little company that’s the owner of Google. He apparently uses an iPhone 6s, Apple’s latest and greatest. He admitted his iPhone-using-ways during an interview, but still professed a little love for Samsung. More →

How I added microSD support to my iPhone 6s

How I added microSD support to my iPhone 6s

By on May 19, 2016 at 11:23 AM.

If history is any indication, Apple has no plans of addressing iPhone owners’ two biggest complaints anytime soon. The first is always battery life, but Apple clearly values design aesthetics enough to prevent it from making a thicker iPhone with a larger battery. And as bad as the iPhone’s battery life can be, it certainly doesn’t seem to be hurting sales — despite the recent dip, iPhones are still the best-selling smartphones in the world.

Coming in closely behind battery life is the lack of expandable storage. iPhones are some of the most expensive smartphones in the world but Apple still insists on “encouraging” users to buy more expensive models; 16GB gets you nowhere and it’s only another $100 for 64GB. You could shell out more money for a bigger iPhone, or you could add microSD card support to your current iPhone in just a few seconds like I just did. More →

Leaked OnePlus 3 pic looks like the iPhone 6s and HTC 10 had a lovechild

The OnePlus 3 is probably going to be sold as the next “flagship killer,” a phone billed as being better than any other high-end handset out there and more affordable than other leading devices. But if there’s one thing the OnePlus 3 might not “kill,” it’s smartphone design. A new leak showing what seems to be official press renders of the handset suggest the device is more like the lovechild of an iPhone 6s and an HTC 10. More →

Our favorite crystal clear iPhone 6s case sports an integrated metal kickstand

A case is an absolute necessity for any iPhone, considering how slippery the aluminum that Apple uses is. And we all know that crystal clear cases are the way to go since they protect your iPhone without hiding that gorgeous design that Apple worked so hard on. What you might not know, however, is that not all clear cases are created equal — check out the OBLIQ Naked Shield Slim Fit Crystal Clear Case With Integrated Kickstand for the iPhone 6/6s or iPhone 6/6s Plus.

iPhone Projector Review

My iPhone screen is bigger than your HDTV, but it still fits in my pocket

My iPhone screen is bigger than your HDTV, but it still fits in my pocket

By on April 25, 2016 at 12:37 PM.

One of the reasons I like the Galaxy S7 edge so much is the fact that it stuffs a large 5.5-inch display into a smartphone that is surprisingly compact and comfortable to use with one hand. Samsung’s S7 edge design is fantastic, featuring curved glass edges on the front and back of the phone. Couple that with practically non-existent bezels on the sides of the handset’s Super AMOLED display, and you’ve got a wonderfully compact phone that still has a big, beautiful display.

And here I am stuck with the tiny little 4.7-inch screen on the iPhone 6s.

I would love to switch to the Galaxy S7 edge. Sadly, I cannot. It would also be awesome if I could switch to Apple’s larger iPhone 6s Plus. Unfortunately, that’s also a no-go. There’s simply no perfect solution for me right now, but an awesome accessory I recently found makes my iPhone 6s screen the size of an HDTV, and I’m shocked at how much I’ve been enjoying it.

The 5 best-selling iPhone cases on Amazon

Even if you choose an installment plan, your iPhone will end up costing you $650, $850 or even over $1,000 when all is said and done and you factor in taxes. That’s the kind of investment you need to protect, but Apple’s AppleCare+ warranty might not be the best way to protect it. Sure you can swap out your phone if something happens to it, but you have to pay a deductible when you do. How about trying to make sure nothing happens to damage your phone in the first place?

The following are the five best-selling iPhone cases on Amazon in reverse order from No. 5 to No. 1. They start at just $4.98 with free shipping, so you really have no excuse. More →
