Nexpaq is a modular case that adds incredible new features to the iPhone 6 or Galaxy S6

Google’s Project Ara smartphones are not yet widely available, and neither are any other similar devices from the competition. But it’s more than apparent that some users are interested in such features from mobile devices. However, rather than making a new modular phone concept, one company has conceived a different kind of device that can offer the same sort of module-based experience to existing smartphones, including the iPhone.

Meet Nexpaq, a modular smartphone case for iPhone 6 and Android devices (including Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S5) that just launched on Kickstarter looking to raise $50,000. More →

LG G4 Vs iPhone 6

5 LG G4 features that might make iPhone users jealous

5 LG G4 features that might make iPhone users jealous

By on April 29, 2015 at 11:00 AM.

LG finally unveiled its next-generation flagship Android phone on Tuesday morning, though the LG G4 really wasn’t much of a surprise going into yesterday’s press conference. As it has done in the past, LG released a series of “teasers” leading up to the event that weren’t really teasers at all, but instead bits and pieces of LG’s official announcement. Gadget fans were still impressed once they finally saw the complete picture though, and there’s certainly plenty to be impressed by.

And for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users in particular, there are some features on the G4 that might stir up a bit of jealousy. More →

Foxconn CEO may have had a surprising amount of influence on the upcoming iPhone 6s

Apple is far from releasing new iPhone models, yet various reports have already taken stabs at offering some specific details about the upcoming handsets. The new iPhone family is expected to feature 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models, a new A9 chip that’s made by Samsung and TSMC,  and the new Force Touch feature that’s already available on the Apple Watch and Retina MacBook.

Interestingly, a new report from the Economic Daily News suggests that Apple’s main supplier had a hand in influencing the future of the iPhone 6s. More →

Galaxy S6 Vs iPhone 6

A tiny detail shows why the iPhone 6 design trumps Samsung’s Galaxy S6 design

A tiny detail shows why the iPhone 6 design trumps Samsung’s Galaxy S6 design

There’s no denying that Samsung, with the release of the Galaxy S6, has really stepped up its game. The phone looks incredible, has netted overwhelmingly positive reviews, and certainly stands as a viable rival to the monster that is Apple’s iPhone.

Still, you’d still be hard pressed to find a company that pays as much attention to detail as Apple, a sentiment plainly evident when one compares the industrial design of the iPhone to the Galaxy S6. Writing for iMore, Rene Ritchie noticed that when you pit the iPhone 6 up against the Galaxy S6, there are some quirky alignment problems that are hard to ignore once brought to your attention.

The Apple Watch’s battery is much better than I thought… but I still have to charge it every day

Since then, I have tested the Watch’s features in all sorts of daily routines, including battery life, and I have to say my experience has been surprisingly good – so read on to find out how I deal with charging it every day. More →

iPhone 6s Rumors: Release Date

This might be the stupidest iPhone 6s prediction yet – and it would be terrible, if true

This might be the stupidest iPhone 6s prediction yet – and it would be terrible, if true

Apple is expected to launch new iPhone 6s models this fall, in line with its typical new iPhone releases, and some rumors have already detailing several of the features expected on these next-generation devices. For example, one analyst who has been accurate with iPhone predictions in the past said recently that Apple will launch only new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models this fall, and that the company might skip the expected iPhone 6s naming scheme and jump directly to iPhone 7. Meanwhile, a wild guess from Taiwan-based supply chain sources who spoke to Digitimes suggests a scenario that is almost impossible to believe. More →

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 vs. HTC One M9: The results of this speed test were completely unexpected

Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 vs. HTC One M9: The results of this speed test were completely unexpected

By on April 28, 2015 at 10:56 AM.

When it comes to flagship smartphones, there are basically three main contenders — though a potential fourth was just unveiled on Tuesday morning by LG. Until we’ve spent some time with the G4, however, the Galaxy S6 (and S6 edge), HTC One M9 and iPhone 6 are as good as it gets for discerning smartphone users looking for the cream of the crop.

There has been extensive testing since the One M9 and Galaxy S6 debuted earlier this year, and we’ve seen a common theme emerge: the Galaxy S6 crushes the competition when it comes to raw power and the iPhone 6 is the best in the business when it comes to gaming.

But do these test results carry over to real life? More →

Apple Watch makes the worst thing about the iPhone 6 even worse

Apple Watch makes the worst thing about the iPhone 6 even worse

Apple’s latest iPhones are, without question, the company’s most impressive iPhones to date. The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus both feature sleek designs, stunning screens and shockingly strong performance that manages to crush most rival smartphones despite Apple’s decision to stick with a dual-core chipset and 1GB of RAM.

But there is one area where the smaller iPhone model in particular definitely lags behind much of the competition, and it looks like the problem is being exacerbated by the brand new Apple Watch. More →

LG’s G4 might be even more expensive than the Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge are Samsung’s best phones to date, and they’re also the company’s most expensive phones to date. In fact, they’re priced even higher than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. If you thought LG’s upcoming flagship device would beat the Galaxy S6 on price, then you might be surprised. At least that’s what a new report from South Korean publication ETNews claims. More →

Security flaw lets attackers cripple your iPhone and there’s no way to stop them

Wondering how difficult it is for attackers to cripple your iPhone? The answer isn’t going to make you happy — in a nutshell, all the have to do is create a Wi-Fi network. That’s right, thanks to a newly detailed security flaw in iOS, malicious hackers can send an iPhone into an endless reboot loop simply by creating a Wi-Fi network. And the worst part is that iPhones will connect to these networks automatically, and the only way to stop it is to disable Wi-Fi completely. More →
