Surprise: Galaxy Note 5’s gorgeous display cracks… if you drop it repeatedly

You’d better be sitting down for this, but the Galaxy Note 5 isn’t drop-proof either – no phone is. The glass-and-metal Galaxy Note 5 looks a lot better than any of its predecessors, and the smartphone is supposed to be even more durable than any of them. But if you drop Samsung’s newest flagship from various heights on a hard surface it won’t be able to survive without getting at least some glass damage. More →

Good luck bending the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus with your bare hands

Multiple reports claimed in the past that Apple would be using 7000 Series aluminum for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus to make the devices stronger than their predecessors and less susceptible to accidental bending. Apple has yet to confirm this detail about the iPhone 6s’s metal case but reports already say the new metal alloy used for this year’s iPhones includes zinc and iron to make it more durable. More →

Apple’s iPhone 6s event is supposedly scheduled for September 9th, with the phone rumored to launch on September 18th, according to various reports.

Additionally, these images are the first ones to offer us a sneak peek at a fully assembled iPhone 6s. More →

Galaxy Note 5 vs. iPhone 6 Plus: Showdown between the world’s two best camera phones

By on August 19, 2015 at 9:30 AM.

Most things are subjective when it comes to comparing smartphones, and people rarely agree when it comes to “the best” this and “the best” that. In a few rare cases, however, the majority of smartphone fans out there actually come to an agreement. Such is the case with the shared title of “best camera phone in the world,” which most people agree was shared by the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy note 4 in 2014.

Now, the guard is changing and it’s time to see if these two companies can make the world’s top camera phones even better. More →

Pretend you already have Android 6.0 by downloading all of Marshmallow’s wallpapers right here

Android M has a name, and it’s even tastier than Android L. Google gave its latest Android build an official name on Monday, and it released the final developer preview of Android 6.0 Marshmallow as well — you can download it right here. The new Android 6.0 build is only available for Nexus devices though, so most Android fans won’t be able to get their hands on Marshmallow for quite some time.

Don’t worry though, because you can already pretend you have Marshmallow. More →

Apple iPhone 6c Rumor 5-Inch Display

Foxconn insider makes wild claim about a third new iPhone set for 2016 release

Foxconn insider makes wild claim about a third new iPhone set for 2016 release

We feel pretty confident that Apple is only going to launch two new iPhone models at its big event in early September, but that doesn’t mean the company isn’t planning on putting out a new “iPhone 6c” somewhere down the line. G for Games directs our attention to a new rumor posted on Chinese blog Feng.com that claims to show a drawing of an iPhone 6c that has a display of 5 inches. This is interesting because the rumor also claims that Apple is still launching a new 4.7-inch iPhone and a 5.5-inch iPhone later this year but it also says Apple is making a phone that’s sized in between the two as well.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Battery Benchmark

One of Android fans’ biggest fears about the Galaxy Note 5 may be unfounded

One of Android fans’ biggest fears about the Galaxy Note 5 may be unfounded

Last week, we noted that many Android fans were already complaining about the just-announced Galaxy Note 5. One of their biggest complaints was that the Note 5 had a 3,000mAh battery, which was actually smaller than the 3,220mAh battery that came with the Galaxy Note 4. While we found this criticism reasonable at the time, it’s also the case that specs sheets don’t tell us everything and it turns out the Note 5 might actually deliver stronger battery performance than its predecessors.

The iPhone 6s launch event is weeks away and now we’re getting some rumors on the nitty-gritty technical specifications of Apple’s newest smartphone. According to a Chinese source familiar with Apple plans, the company will use a System in Package (SiP) architecture for the motherboard of the iPhone 6s, a feat first seen in the Apple Watch.
