How much space is actually usable on a 16GB iPhone or iPad?

As apps continue to increase in size and our collective appetite for downloadable content continues to grow, electronics makers are having to rethink the minimum amount of storage they include on their devices. This year, Apple upgraded its iPhone and iPad lines with 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB storage options, removing the 32GB models entirely. But is 16GB really sufficient in 2014?

After wiping his original 16GB iPad mini, that’s exactly what Kirk McElhearn attempted to find out. More →

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 →

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 →
