Galaxy Note 4 Rumors: Metal vs Plastic

Is the Galaxy Note 4 doomed to be plastic?

By about 7 hours ago.

Is the Galaxy Note 4 doomed to be plastic?

Samsung doesn’t always listen to fans when creating new mobile devices, no matter what it says during its press events — as long as smartphone sales are still strong, it will keep churning out the plastic. But the company seems finally ready to commit to making high-end devices out of materials other than plastic now that its smartphone profits are crashing — The Wall Street Journal reports that Samsung senior vice president Kim Hyun-joon acknowledged during a recent earnings call that Samsung will release two new high-end smartphone models in the second half of the year, one with a large screen and the other made of “new materials.” It’s not clear whether the second will also have a screen as large as the first.

Sprint again shows why it’s America’s worst wireless carrier

Amazing but true — Sprint’s “Framily” ad campaign has done little to stop subscribers from fleeing in droves. The Un-uncarrier last quarter reported losing another 245,000 contract subscribers and now it’s fallen behind T-Mobile and is now America’s fourth-largest wireless carrier. And how’s T-Mobile doing? Over the same period this year it added 1.5 million net customers, including a hugely impressive 579,000 branded postpaid subscribers. And as BTIG analyst Walter Piecyk points out, T-Mobile’s wireless service revenue grew by 8.1% last quarter while Sprint’s fell by 6.3%. More →

How to fix one of iOS 7.1’s most annoying bugs

There are still some annoying bugs that crept through in the latest version of iOS 7.1, however, and now there’s a simple fix for one of the most annoying ones out there. More →
