iPhone 6 Plus Review

The best and most extensive iPhone 6 Plus camera review you’ll ever see

The best and most extensive iPhone 6 Plus camera review you’ll ever see

By on October 23, 2014 at 10:05 AM.

We have seen a number of photography experts and professional photographers review the camera on Apple’s new iPhone 6 Plus phablet. Apple’s iPhones are widely known for being among the best in the business when it comes to smartphone camera quality, and the optics on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are the best Apple has ever used. Since only the 6 Plus includes optical image stabilization (OIS), this is the handset photographers typically focus on when reviewing Apple’s latest handsets.

Reviews up to this point have been great. We have seen a number of respected photography experts review the iPhone 6 Plus camera and sing it praise, and we’ve even seen some photo samples that are so incredible it’s hard to believe they were captured by a smartphone.

But now, we finally have the iPhone 6 Plus camera review we have been waiting for. More →

Leaked photos show the incredible new Droid Turbo for the first time

Yes, we already know just about all there is to know about Motorola’s upcoming new Droid Turbo smartphone, which will be unveiled next week by Verizon Wireless. Everything we know has leaked quite recently though, so some might consider the Droid Turbo to be the most surprising smartphone of the year. After all, no one expected one of the most sleek and powerful flagship smartphones of 2014 to come from Motorola, a company that recently turned its focus away from bleeding-edge tech and more toward customization and user experiences.

Now, the world has seemingly been given its first glimpse of an actual Motorola Droid Turbo smartphone powered on and in use. More →

One woman is so scared of wireless tech that she spent $6,400 to block Wi-Fi and LTE from her house

This awesome interactive tool will help you improve any phone’s battery life

Ask a smartphone user what aspect of his or her phone is most in need of improvement, and “battery life” will be the answer you hear more often than not. Whether it’s a brand new iPhone 6 or any recent Android smartphone, battery performance is never quite where we want it to be. The simple fact of the matter is battery technology just isn’t progressing quickly enough to keep up with all of the new technology vendors are now stuffing into their smartphones.

Of course, there are plenty of ways to help squeeze as much battery life as possible out of each charge. More →

A new iPhone 6 problem arises: Dye from jeans is ruining the iPhone’s plastic strips

A new iPhone 6 problem arises: Dye from jeans is ruining the iPhone’s plastic strips

By on October 22, 2014 at 12:50 PM.

Apple fans breathed a sigh of relief this past summer when Nikkei, typically a reliable source of accurate early information on unreleased Apple devices, issued a report stating that the white plastic strips we had seen on countless iPhone 6 mockups would not be part of the final design. Those strips, which many people found to be quite an eyesore, reportedly stemmed from a misunderstanding of some iPhone 6 schematics that had previously leaked. Instead, the Nikkei claimed that those areas would actually be covered by glass panels similar to the ones on the back of the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s.

Unfortunately for people who think those plastic strips ruin the sleek look of the phone, they were still present when Apple’s next-generation handsets were unveiled last month.

Of course, had Apple found another way to give the antennas inside the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus some breathing room that was feasible technically and financially in such a slim phone, the company might have opted to ditch the plastic in favor of glass or another solution. And thanks to a new issue that seems to have arisen in recent weeks, we know of at least a few people who wish Apple had indeed found another solution. More →

To further show how big the Nexus 6 really is, Phone Arena compared it to every Nexus handset ever made, from the original Nexus One to last year’s Nexus 5. More →
