iPhone 7 vs. iPhone 6s vs. Galaxy Note 7

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

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.

But before we get too wrapped up in the future of the iPhone, let’s take a moment to appreciate the present.

iPhone 7 2016 Sales

Is Apple shooting itself in the foot with the ‘boring’ iPhone 7?

Is Apple shooting itself in the foot with the ‘boring’ iPhone 7?

Some people have already made up their mind about the iPhone 7 – or whatever Apple ends up calling its 2016 iPhone series. It’s going to be “boring” because it’ll have the same design as the iPhone 6s. It’s also going to be annoying because it’ll come without the standard 3.5mm audio jack. But that’s far from being completely accurate. The iPhone 7 will be the best iPhone money can buy this fall, likely featuring substantial under-the-hood improvements that include the all-new iOS 10 software.

But is Apple shooting itself in the foot with an iPhone 7 that marks a departure from Apple’s well-known tick-tock iPhone upgrade cycle? Yes and no. More →

New leak highlights how boring the iPhone 7 really is

New leak highlights how boring the iPhone 7 really is

The iPhone 7 will be a close copy of the iPhone 6s, multiple trustworthy reports claimed, as Apple transitions to a three-year iPhone redesign approach — at least temporarily. The iPhone 7 might not even be called iPhone 7 according to one report, as that honor might apparently be reserved for the 2017 iPhone series, which would mark Apple’s 10-year iPhone anniversary.

Some of the main changes coming to the 2016 iPhone concern the headphone jack, antenna lines and rear cameras, and now a new report says there will be other tiny modifications. More →

2016 iPhone 7 Name

Report says there won’t be an iPhone 7 this year

Report says there won’t be an iPhone 7 this year

Don’t panic just yet; Apple is still planning to release two new iPhones this year, including 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch successors to 2015’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. But the company may hold the “iPhone 7” name for next year’s new iPhone series and choose a different name for this year’s models, according to a new report.

OnePlus vs. Galaxy S7 edge Speed Test

OnePlus 3 vs. Galaxy S7 edge speed test, round 2: What happens when 6GB of RAM is unleashed?

OnePlus 3 vs. Galaxy S7 edge speed test, round 2: What happens when 6GB of RAM is unleashed?

The OnePlus 3 might be one of the best smartphones you can buy without parting with too much cash, but it’s not necessarily the fastest one. Recent real-life speed tests showed that the OnePlus flagship lags behind the Galaxy S7 edge and the iPhone 6s even though it has an outrageous amount of RAM. The OnePlus 3 packs 6GB of RAM, compared to 4GB for the Galaxy S7 edge and 2GB for the newest iPhone.

OnePlus addressed the RAM management following these tests, saying that the phone doesn’t keep too many apps in memory to conserve battery life. That said, some intrepid hackers came up with an unofficial “fix” for the issue, prompting a second speed test comparison.

iPhone 6s Amazon Scam

This crazy iPhone 6s scam on Amazon isn’t what you think

This crazy iPhone 6s scam on Amazon isn’t what you think

By on June 20, 2016 at 3:15 PM.

Check out these one-star reviews on Amazon for an unlocked 128GB iPhone 6s. Can you imagine how angry you would be if that happened to you? You shell out more than $900 for an unlocked, contract-free iPhone 6s and instead of receiving a shiny new phone in the mail, you get a box full of clay. How could Amazon let this happen? Well, it appears as though the weight of the clay is about the same as the iPhone that would have been in the box, and a fake bar code covered the real one on the packaging. Then the seller makes off with your cash and you’re left trying to shove your SIM card into a lump of clay.

This definitely sounds like one of the crazier scams we’ve seen on Amazon — but it’s even crazier than you think because nothing is what it seems. More →

16GB iPhone 6s iOS 10

iOS 10 will make 16GB iPhones great again

iOS 10 will make 16GB iPhones great again

Apple might ditch the 16GB storage tier in the upcoming iPhone 7, but there are plenty of current iPhone users that have to deal with just 16GB of onboard memory. There are plenty of solutions for optimizing storage on devices with limited memory, including moving data to the cloud, buying external storage solutions like this great iPhone flash drive, and managing installed apps better. But Apple is apparently ready to help out with storage optimization in iOS 10 thanks to what appears to be a hidden feature of the newly announced operating system.
