Here’s how the iPhone 6 Plus feels to someone who’s never owned a smartphone

Believe it or not, there are some people out there who don’t own smartphones and have been sticking with feature phones all these years. One such person recently wrote on Reddit about his experience in going from using a feature phone to using the iPhone 6 Plus, a massive device that’s about as far away from an old-school Motorola RAZR as you can get.

iPhone 6 Camera Review

iPhone 6 gets slaughtered by a 16-month-old Nokia phone in new camera showdown

iPhone 6 gets slaughtered by a 16-month-old Nokia phone in new camera showdown

By on November 13, 2014 at 11:05 AM.

There is absolutely no question that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus share one of the most impressive cameras that has ever been built into a smartphone. There is also no question that the quality of photos captured by the iPhone 6′s camera is regularly overstated by people who don’t bother to support their claims with actual tests. Thankfully, some people have taken the time to really put the new iPhone’s camera through the paces, and while it is indeed quite impressive, it’s definitely not the best mobile camera on the market.

In fact, the iPhone 6′s camera was positively slaughtered in a recent showdown with Nokia’s Lumia 1020, a smartphone that was released well over a year ago. More →

This incredible iPhone 8 concept is the most beautiful smartphone you’ve ever seen

By on November 13, 2014 at 9:50 AM.

Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus might represent the fastest-selling smartphone duo of all time, but some people find certain aspects of the phones’ design to be “appalling.” We also discussed some questionable design decisions in our in-depth iPhone 6 review, though we didn’t feel quite that strongly about them. Either way, it makes sense that people would begin looking toward the future in search of new iPhone designs, since not everyone is happy with the look of the current iPhones.

Now, a new iPhone concept attempts to look beyond the next few years, where Apple’s iPhone of the future is the most beautiful handset the world has ever seen. More →

Google releases 4 new ads to get you pumped up for Android 5.0 Lollipop

Just in time for the release of Android 5.0 on most of its recent Nexus devices, Google has published a new series of Android commercials on its YouTube account. Like the commercials before them, these ads all feature Androidified characters, which I can’t help but think are far too reminiscent of South Park’s take on Canadians. More →

iPhone 6 Vs. Android Sales

Apple’s new iPhones may not be stealing as many Android users as we expected

Apple’s new iPhones may not be stealing as many Android users as we expected

The conventional wisdom after the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was that Apple would steal back some market share from Android as Android users who love owning big phones would flock to the new devices. However, Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) has shared some new research with us that suggests that the bigger new iPhones aren’t picking off quite as many Android users as we thought they would.

Meet Sesame, the amazing smartphone you can control without ever touching it

In the past seven or so years, smartphones have become increasingly useful and capable. Their impact on society has been huge; they have quite literally changed our lives. For most of us, that change has been for the better. People are now constantly connected to the information they need and the entertainment they want, and people in less developed countries now have access to the Internet that is far more attainable.

At the same time, however, there are people who have been left out of this revolution — until now. More →

At long last, someone has released a real ‘iPad killer’… and it’s Apple

There was never any doubt that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus would be two of the best selling phones of the year, but Apple might have to grapple with an unintended side effect of the success of its latest flagships devices. According to the latest data from Compare My Mobile, 12% of pre-2014 model iPad owners traded in their tablet for an iPhone 6 and 8% downsized to an iPhone 6 Plus, reports PhoneArena. More →

Moto X Moto G Android 5.0 Lollipop

You can get Lollipop on one of 2014′s best Android phones right now

You can get Lollipop on one of 2014′s best Android phones right now

It’s a happy day for Motorola fans as the company has just announced that three of its newest devices are being updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop this week, including the “Pure Edition” of one of the year’s best smartphones, the 2014 version of the Moto X. The Pure Edition is the version of the device that runs on stock Android and doesn’t have the awesome software features that we loved so much in our review of the device, so it’s not surprising that it would get Android 5.0 faster than the standard version of the 2014 Moto X.
