How I get a new iPhone for $125 a year

A new iPhone is rapidly approaching, which means it’s time for my yearly tradition of flogging my old iPhone to strangers on the internet. Upgrading phones every year might be a ridiculous luxury, but if you’re smart about how you do it, upgrading once a year is actually less expensive than upgrading whenever your old device dies.

iPhone 7 Rumors

Another big leak says iPhone 7 will fix iPhone users’ biggest problem

Another big leak says iPhone 7 will fix iPhone users’ biggest problem

By on August 24, 2016 at 2:51 PM.

If sentiment around the internet is any indication, iPhone owners aren’t very happy with the idea that Apple is planning to ditch the standard headphone jack on its upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Nothing has been confirmed at this point, but everything we’ve seen and heard so far suggests that Apple’s new iPhone models will only have a Lightning port on the bottom, so users who want to use a wired headset will either need to purchase a new one or use an adapter.

Yes, Apple is creating a new problem for iPhone users, though if history has taught us anything the outrage will subside fairly quickly after the new iPhones are released. But potential iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users will be happy to learn that Apple will also likely solve a problem with its new iPhone models, and it’s a big one. More →

Case maker claims the most intriguing new iPhone 7 feature is actually fake

Apple is expected to unveil its brand new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones exactly two weeks from today, on September 7th. At that point in time, Apple fans will have to do their best to act surprised — thanks to months of persistent leaks and rumors, we now know just about everything there is to know about Apple’s next-generation iPhone models. In fact, the last mystery may have just been solved.

Everyone knows what to expect and in spite of all the claims we’ve seen on gadget blogs that Apple’s new iPhones will be “boring,” we all know that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are shaping up to be far more exciting than some might think. Unfortunately, however, a new claim suggests that one of the coolest new features reportedly coming to Apple’s new iPhones will be a no-show next month. More →

iPhone 7: New leak may have just solved the only mystery left

iPhone 7: New leak may have just solved the only mystery left

By on August 24, 2016 at 9:41 AM.

If a recent report from a tried and true source is to be believed, Apple’s upcoming new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are now less than a month away from being released on September 16th. And with just two weeks to go before the devices’ expected September 7th unveiling, we know just about everything there is to know. Thanks to countless leaks and reports, we know that Apple’s next-generation iPhones will look a whole lot like its current-generation iPhones, but with a few design tweaks. We know the phones will sport a beefed up processor and improved cameras. We know they won’t have standard headphone jacks on the bottom. We’ve even seen a real working iPhone 7 in action on video.

Despite everything we know about Apple’s upcoming new iPhones, there is one mystery that remains. As it turns out, that mystery may have just been solved… and Apple fans aren’t going to like what comes next. More →

Galaxy Note 7 Features

Photos show the aftermath of a Galaxy Note 7 that exploded while charging

Photos show the aftermath of a Galaxy Note 7 that exploded while charging

Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 7 is far and away the hottest new Android phone of the year at this point, and it’s unlikely that any new handsets set to launch in the coming months will outdo it. The phone’s design is gorgeous, the display is stunning, the Note software suite is still a class leader, and the new features Samsung introduced have made it one of the most sought-after devices of 2016. One eager user discovered a feature that isn’t quite as appealing as the curved display or Samsung’s new iris scanner, and it could have caused serious injury or property damage had the phone’s owner not been so lucky.

2017 iPhone OLED Screen

Samsung will be the iPhone 8’s biggest fan

Samsung will be the iPhone 8’s biggest fan

Apple will not come out with a brand new iPhone redesign this year, that much seems to be crystal clear. But an increasing number of reports claims that at least one of the 2017 iPhones will bring over radical changes. Specifically, Apple is expected to launch a Galaxy S7 edge-like curved iPhone 7 successor next year that will feature a flexible OLED display, a first for the iPhone maker. A new report from Asia indicates that Samsung is already preparing for that rumored iPhone 8 (or whatever Apple calls it), but not to fight against it with a novel Galaxy S7 successor of its own. Instead, Samsung might become the biggest fan of that new iPhone. More →

iPhone 6 TouchID Not Working

A suspicious number of iPhones are breaking right before an iPhone launch

A suspicious number of iPhones are breaking right before an iPhone launch

Planned obsolescence is one of those quasi-conspiracy theories that sits right alongside the breakfast-industrial complex as making you a weird dinner party guest. But it’s true that modern electronics have a shelf life, and a bunch of year-old iPhones spontaneously dying right before the launch of the iPhone 7 is particularly bad timing.

IFixit, a company that specializes in the world of repairing electronic devices, has highlighted a problem with the TouchID sensors of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices. In a blog post, the site said “there’s no way to tell exactly how many phones are afflicted with what we’re calling Touch Disease, but every repair tech we spoke to told us that the problem is incredibly common.”

Want an iPhone 7? Here’s how to get the most money for your old iPhone

Want an iPhone 7? Here’s how to get the most money for your old iPhone

With September right around the corner, we’re just a few short weeks away from Apple introducing the iPhone 7. While nothing is official quite yet, rumor has it that Apple will be holding a special media event on Wednesday, September 7 where it will introduce the highly anticipated iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Though the iPhone 7 may not introduce any game-changing new features — aside from marked improvements in camera quality — there’s a good chance that the iPhone 7 will still manage to break all previous iPhone sales records. The reason? The current pool of iPhone users looking to upgrade is larger than it’s ever been before.

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

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. Note 5 vs. S7 MicroSD

Is this what’s slowing down Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 7?

Is this what’s slowing down Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 7?

One of the most critical components of a smartphone is the built-in storage, which can make a huge difference in overall performance. Tests repeatedly show that Apple’s iPhone 6s is the fastest smartphone when it comes to storage speed, beating all rivals including high-end handsets from Samsung. Of course, the competition is getting better and better when it comes to built-in and expandable storage speed, with Samsung having already confirmed it has big plans in the years ahead.

So, how does the brand new Galaxy Note 7 fare when it comes to storage performance? More →
