One simple trick could free up gigabytes of space on your iPhone

Apple’s 2015 iPhone lineup has more available storage space than ever before, but many budget-conscious Apple fans still opt for 16GB when buying their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that, but having only 16GB of onboard storage can quickly become an issue on smartphones that don’t have expandable memory.

If your iPhone is filling up faster than you expected, there may be one simple trick that will free up a surprising amount of space. More →

Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge shipments top 10 million, but should Samsung still worry?

With profits from Samsung’s division on the decline, the recent release of the Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge could not have come at a better time.

According to The Korea Herald, shipments of Samsung’s new flagship devices have already passed the 10 million mark, not too bad given that they’ve barely been on the market for a little over a month. Both the S6 and the S6 Edge hit store shelves on April 10. Incidentally, the Herald’s source reportedly comes from a high-ranking Samsung official.

Why you should always buy an unlocked phone whenever possible

Carrier subsidies can be awfully tempting — after all, who doesn’t want to get a brand-new smartphone for just $200? But Droid Life makes a good case that they’re also a temptation you should resist because the value of having an unlocked smartphone is just too good over the long haul to pass up. More →

T-Mobile’s next uncarrier move is another game-changer

You’re probably used to seeing free phone offers all the time from wireless carriers, and by now you know how it works. You have to sign a contract with a mobile operator for a certain period of time, during which the cost of the phone will be baked into your wireless service plan.

But what if that wasn’t the case anymore? What if free phones were also offered alongside prepaid service plans? It looks like this intriguing plan might end up being T-Mobile’s next “uncarrier” initiative. More →

While Casabona found a lot to like on the iPhone 6, there still wasn’t enough to convince him to make the switch and he’s decided to stick with Android for now. More →
