Here comes the OLED iPhone 8

The OLED iPhone 8 appears to be the most intriguing of the three new iPhones Apple is set to unveil in 2017. The device will have a nearly bezel-less display, with the Touch ID fingerprint button embedded into the OLED screen itself. Furthermore, the screen will supposedly have curved edges on both sides. Analysts already say the OLED iPhone 8 will be the most popular new smartphone to be released next year, with the entire iPhone 8 family expected to generate record sales for Apple in the second half of 2017.

Nokia Android Phone 2017

The Nokia Android phones we always wanted are coming next year

The Nokia Android phones we always wanted are coming next year

Better late than never, the saying goes. After almost a decade of waiting for Nokia to embrace Android, we may finally see it happen. The former undisputed leader of the phone business was overthrown in the iPhone and Android revolution. Nokia tried to stand out of the crowd by choosing Windows Phone over Android, and it ultimately died in Microsoft’s devastated arms.

But the Nokia name lives on, and former fans will probably be excited to hear that come 2017, the first high-end Nokia-branded phones will be made official. More →

It has admitted that some iPhone 6s models have a faulty battery, which can cause them to shut down abruptly.

iPhone 7 orders reportedly drop as Apple goes big on the iPhone 8

2016 has been a somewhat disappointing year for Apple, but that’s with the caveat that the company’s growth was unsustainable. One way or another, the technology giant was eventually going to come back down to earth, and that’s exactly what happened over the past twelve months.

Still, despite the fact that sales have been consistently falling throughout 2016, the iPhone 7 was Apple’s chance to stabilize. Based on recent reports, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the iPhone 7 wasn’t enough to revitalize the market.

Samsung will make the Galaxy Note 7 virtually unusable in Australia

The Galaxy Note 7 was discontinued, but not all buyers brought in their brand new phablets for exchange or refund. Since discontinuing the product, Samsung issued an update that limits the maximum battery charge to 60% of its original capacity, a move meant to decrease the explosion risk. But the company will not stop there to prevent you from using the phone. Samsung’s next move is to brick the handset. More →

Ultimate drop test: Google Pixel vs. iPhone 7 from 1,000 feet in the air

Depending on how clumsy you are or how often you put your phone in precarious situations, watching a drop test before buying a new phone might be a necessity. In fact, broken displays have become so common that Motorola went as far as to build a shatterproof display for its Droid Turbo 2 last year.

But sometimes, we just want to see phones dropped from great heights.

iPhone 7 vs. iPhone 6s Battery Drain

This is why your iPhone 7’s battery might die in a year

This is why your iPhone 7’s battery might die in a year

There’s a new battery issue plaguing various models of Apple’s phone, including the iPhone 6s. Though we should expect Apple to investigate and fix the bug that causes unexpected shutdowns even when the battery is more than 30% full, users should also understand how these iPhone batteries work. Just like any other battery, they age. The more you use them — and phones do need constant charging — the more likely the battery is to degrade. In fact, even if you buy a brand new iPhone 7 right now, you might still run into battery issues a year from now. More →
