Brady wasn’t destroying Deflategate evidence, he was trashing his ‘broken’ Samsung for an iPhone 6

The NFL on Tuesday announced it was upholding Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for allegedly being “generally aware” that team staffers were deflating footballs before games in violation of league rules. In its explanation for why it was upholding the suspension, the NFL revealed that Brady had instructed an assistant to destroy his smartphone just when investigators were getting ready to question him about his role in the scandal. Brady has now fired back with an official excuse for trashing his old phone that will certainly give Samsung executives heartburn when they hear about it. More →

LG’s total Q2 smartphone profit is only enough money to buy 235 iPhones

It must be annoying to sell a boatload of smartphones and not make any serious money off them. Just ask LG! The Korean company’s second-quarter smartphone profit was so miniscule, it was only enough money to cover 235 iPhone 6 handsets at retail price. More →

iPhone 6 Vs. Android Switch Fanboy

Longtime Android fanboy will ‘hate’ himself for it, but he’s switching to iPhone

Longtime Android fanboy will ‘hate’ himself for it, but he’s switching to iPhone

The incredibly long time it takes for many Android phones to receive software updates is something that has driven users crazy for years now. Longtime Android fanboy Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai recently reached a breaking point with Android after news broke this week about a massive flaw in the platform that lets hackers compromise Android devices simply by sending them either an MMS message or a multimedia file. In particular, Franceschi-Bicchierai was enraged that it would take so long for his phone to get a necessary patch, if it ever got it at all. More →

Game-changing Qualcomm tech paves the way for iPhones with wireless charging

One smartphone feature iPhone users don’t have access to yet is true wireless charging. Sure, there are cases that enable the functionality and you can add wireless charging support with a quick hack, but Apple has yet to build the feature into the phone. There’s at least one reason that hasn’t happened so far, and Qualcomm may already have a fix for it. More →

Galaxy S6 Mini Specs

Yet another new version of the Galaxy S6 just leaked – is this the one you’ll buy?

Yet another new version of the Galaxy S6 just leaked – is this the one you’ll buy?

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are arguably the two best Android phones that have ever existed. After years of complaints from tech blogs and Android fans, Samsung finally gave in and built a pair of smartphones with premium materials to match their premium performance and premium prices. Unfortunately, even the best isn’t good enough when you’re up against the iPhone 6.

Put plainly, not enough people are buying Samsung’s high-margin S6 series phones to help stop the company’s sliding profits. Well, if the Galaxy S6 isn’t the phone you want… and the Galaxy S6 edge isn’t the phone you want… and the Galaxy S6 Active isn’t the phone you want… and the much-rumored Galaxy S6 edge+ isn’t the phone you want… maybe the newly leaked “Galaxy S6 Mini” will be just what the doctor ordered.
