Reports claims Samsung’s Galaxy S8 will feature a 4K display and a (shocker) dual camera

We’re still several months away from the unveiling of Samsung’s Galaxy S8, but rumors are already cropping up on what seems like a weekly basis.

Earlier this month, Samsung showed off a 5.5-inch 4K UHD display at a trade show in California, leading some to believe that it would be the display featured on the company’s next flagship smartphone. Now Chinese tech blog NetEase is making a similar claim, providing even more credence to the rumor.

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.

2017 iPhone Rumors

Upcoming huge iPhone redesign will include the new feature everyone wants

Upcoming huge iPhone redesign will include the new feature everyone wants

One recurring iPhone rumor claims that Apple is on the verge of a major shift when it comes to iPhone display quality. The iPhone 7 models will ship with LCD screens, just like all their predecessors. But starting next year at least one new iPhone 7s/8 will have an AMOLED display. That’s the kind of screen mostly found on Samsung’s “iPhone killers,” including the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines. In recent years, experts found AMOLED screens to offer a superior experience compared to LCD panels. Even though the most recent LCD displays inside the iPhone and iPad Pro have also been praised in reviews, AMOLED might offer Apple an added edge in the future.

Now, new reports out of Asia indicate that Apple suppliers have already been informed that the OLED iPhone is coming. More →

iPhone 7 Rumors Headphone Jack EarPods

A silly iPhone 7 EarPods rumor that actually makes some sense

A silly iPhone 7 EarPods rumor that actually makes some sense

These days, iPhone 7 rumors are a dime a dozen, with some making more sense than others, considering the general pictures most reports have painted for this year’s new iPhone series. A new rumor from Japan suggests that Apple will indeed remove the headphone jack from the iPhone 7. But the report says Apple will not bundle the new phones with redesigned EarPods that would connect to the device via Bluetooth or Lightning port. Instead, Apple is supposedly shipping new iPhones with 3.5mm-to-Lightning adapters. The rumor might sound silly, but it does make some sense. More →

New leak suggests the most controversial iPhone 7 rumor is all wrong

New leak suggests the most controversial iPhone 7 rumor is all wrong

By on June 20, 2016 at 9:41 AM.

The news cycle surrounding new iPhone launches each year follows the same general mold. Details begin to trickle in slowly at first, and then they gather pace as component production picks up. Slow leaks become a gushing river once full production begins, of course, and there’s typically almost no mystery left at all once Apple finally gets around to unveiling its new iPhones each September.

While the rumor mill has grown increasingly accurate over the years — especially when the same reports come from multiple sources — there are still bumps in the road every now and again. As it turns out, the latest such bump suggests that the single most controversial iPhone 7 rumor to date is completely wrong. More →

Samsung Copies Apple

Samsung’s copying of Apple has reached an embarrassing new low

Samsung’s copying of Apple has reached an embarrassing new low

It’s quite embarrassing that Samsung in 2016 still feels the need to blatantly copy as much as it can from Apple. And while it’s one thing for Samsung to look towards the iPhone for inspiration — because let’s be honest, Apple isn’t shy about siphoning off features from Android either — it’s an entirely different matter to see Samsung going so far as to copy Apple’s advertising campaigns.
