Watch: Principal refuses to give student’s iPhone 6 back to her parent, offers a flip phone as compensation

It’s perfectly fair for a school to confiscate a student’s iPhone while they’re in class. But once that student leaves the building, schools normally give their devices back to them. And if they don’t, then we definitely expect their devices to be returned once the student’s parent shows up to claim it. However, this wasn’t the case for one parent who recently went to pick up his daughter’s confiscated iPhone 6 at her school and was told that he couldn’t have it back and was then offered a flip phone as compensation.

Meet Zero G, the only iPhone 6 case that can defy gravity

There are plenty of interesting iPhone 6 cases to choose from if you’re looking to protect your handset against accidental drops, but the Zero G is something else, as it packs a brilliant new feature. The case, currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, doesn’t just wrap around the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for added shock resistance — it also sticks to tables or even vertical surfaces, seemingly defying gravity in the process.

iPhone 6 Wi-Fi Calling

How to enable one of the iPhone’s best hidden phone features

By on April 13, 2015 at 12:22 PM.

How to enable one of the iPhone’s best hidden phone features

One of the best calling features on the iPhone, assuming it’s enabled by your carrier of choice, is Wi-Fi calling. When turned on, Wi-Fi calling offers an improved voice call experience on the iPhone, and it saves you voice minutes from your cellular subscription if you’re not on an unlimited voice plan already. However, even if the feature is enabled by your carrier, Wi-Fi calling won’t necessarily be activated by default on your iPhone, which means you’ll have to do it yourself – here’s how. More →

This mega-review covers the Galaxy S6, iPhone 6 and every other flagship phone

For many, professional reviews on sites like BGR play a huge role in helping people decide which smartphone to purchase next. Reviews like our recent Galaxy S6 review and HTC One M9 review dive deep into the devices to help people better understand what it’s like to use the latest and greatest devices on the market before they even launch.

Sometimes, however, it’s nice to supplement those deep dives with a simplified review of sorts that covers not just one or two devices, but a wide range of phones that are all competing for space in your pocket. And now, one such review pitting six flagship smartphones against one another has come from an unlikely place. More →

Amazing iPhone 6 hack brings the Android Lollipop experience to iOS

Have you ever wanted to try Android without actually ditching your iPhone in favor of a brand new Android device? There might be a way to do that, as long as you still have access to an iOS version that can be jailbroken, as the app that’ll get you an Android experience on your iPhone 6 can’t be found in the App Store.

As posted on Reddit and imgur, Andrios is “an Android experience for iOS,” which aims to bring some familiar Android Lollipop UI elements to the iPhone, offering users a fake but gorgeous Android environment. More →

Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 face off in the most savage drop tests yet

Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 face off in the most savage drop tests yet

By on April 9, 2015 at 11:59 AM.

We recently shared a brutal drop test with you that compared the Galaxy S6 edge and iPhone 6’s performance. Both phones walked away beaten and bloodied, but the almost-all-glass S6 edge shocked us all by outperforming the aluminum and glass iPhone 6. Will the results of a few simpler, more scientific tests be the same?

The tests look tame enough but as it turns out, they’re actually quite savage and they do more damage than any tests we’ve seen before. More →

Why one iPhone fan won’t switch to the Galaxy S6 even though he thinks it’s a better phone

Why one iPhone fan won’t switch to the Galaxy S6 even though he thinks it’s a better phone

It’s easy to say that Apple fans suffer from blind loyalty, especially when they admit to sticking with Apple even though they think another product is actually better in many critical ways. Nonetheless, Mark Spoonauer of Tom’s Hardware makes some very interesting points in an essay about why he won’t dump the iPhone 6 for the Galaxy S6 even though objectively he thinks the S6 is a better piece of hardware. It basically boils down to this: Apple’s app ecosystem simply can’t be beat by any Android phone. More →

Hugely influential iOS developer: ‘I don’t think anyone will look back fondly on the iPhone 6′

Instapaper creator Marco Arment is certainly one of the most read and widely influential Mac and iOS developers around. Earlier this year, he made some waves when he declared that Apple’s software quality had taken a “nosedive,” although he later backed off some of his criticisms of the company as too harsh. Arment this week wrote up a comprehensive overview that compared the strengths and weaknesses of Apple’s two newest iPhone models with the older iPhone 5s and he found that the iPhone 6 in particular is very much wanting.
