iPhone 7 tipped to return to display tech Apple ditched not long ago

Nexus 5 2015 Pricing Structure

I think I’ve figured out how much the new Nexus 5 will cost

I think I’ve figured out how much the new Nexus 5 will cost

Recent leaks have suggested that Google’s 2015 Nexus 5 handset will be a lot more affordable than last year’s pricey Nexus 6. While actual pricing details have not been offered by sources familiar with Google’s plans, there have been indications the phone will have sub-flagship specs, which generally means it’ll be friendlier to your wallet just as the original Nexus 5 was back in 2013.

However, a brand-new smartphone announcement made earlier today has given me a pretty good idea of what the new Nexus 5’s pricing structure will be. Why, you ask? Because this new phone has the exact same specs that are rumored for the next Nexus 5. More →

iPhone 6s Plus Pricing 16GB 64GB 128GB

New report squashes your dreams of a 32GB entry-level iPhone 6s

New report squashes your dreams of a 32GB entry-level iPhone 6s

Soon after Apple released iOS 8 last year, it became abundantly clear to many users that a 16GB device isn’t going to cut it any longer. Apple partially fixed iOS 8’s massive storage problems in subsequent iOS 8 incremental updates, and it plans to fix this issue for good once iOS 9 rolls out. Many assumed the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus would be available in 32GB as entry-level models, and some reports said that will happen this year.

However, various others said that 16GB would remain the lowest storage tier for new iPhones for one more year, and more and more leaks indicate that’s indeed going to be the case. After a report from a Dutch tech site said a few days ago said the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will have the same price points as their predecessors, a new story on the Chinese iPhone 6s launch indicates the same thing.

Meet the Nextbit Robin, a sleek new smartphone that uses cloud magic to solve storage limitations

By on September 1, 2015 at 10:00 AM.

The smartphone space is quite cluttered right now. It might not seem like it in major markets, since Apple and Samsung dominate the smartphone industry, but there are dozens of companies around the world fighting for space in consumers’ pockets. Different companies use different strategies to try to separate their products from the pack, but by and large, most companies hit the same notes. Since Samsung and Apple dominate the high end, other companies compete on price.

Interestingly, no smaller smartphone makers have made a real effort to break through by addressing one of smartphone users’ top pain points in a new and creative way… until now. More →

New Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 cases leak, seem to confirm one major new feature

Thanks to numerous leaks we already know a lot about Google’s upcoming new Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 devices. They’re made by LG and Huawei, and they should be launched this fall as soon as Android 6.0 Marshmallow is ready for mass consumption.

Considering that Google’s new mobile operating system brings support for some major new features, it seemed obvious long before leaks actually started coming in that the new Nexus handsets would pack specific hardware to take advantage of the new Marshmallow features, and a pair of new leaks have confirmed the presence of a fingerprint scanner on both devices.

T-Mobile CEO declares war on ‘thieves’ who are ‘stealing’ tethered LTE data

How can someone steal something that’s unlimited? That’s a question you might ask when hearing that T-Mobile has started a war on data hogs who are taking advantage of its unlimited data plans. But the uncarrier’s CEO made it clear on Periscope and on the company’s blog on Sunday how that’s happening, as T-Mobile has had enough of people using workarounds to use their T-Mobile connections to get unlimited tethering data and mask their abuse.

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus: Leaked pricing paints grim picture for your wallet

Apple earlier this week confirmed that its iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus event will take place on September 9th, just as a report predicted a few weeks ago. Another report recently revealed that Apple will sell five iPhones this fall, including two brand-new devices, although it contained no information on pricing. However, a fresh leak has taken care of that and suggests that the new iPhones will not be more expensive than their predecessors. However, that’s not necessarily good news for buyers looking to purchase the cheapest new iPhone 6s and who also want plenty of storage on the phone. More →
