This is the first significant complaint we’ve heard about the Galaxy S6

The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge have both been getting rave reviews but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to complain about. SamMobile directs our attention to the first significant complaint we’ve heard about Samsung’s new flagship phones, although it sounds like this particular gripe is something that can be fixed with a software update.

LG G4 Review Part 1

LG G4 hands-on: The Galaxy S6 finally has something to worry about

LG G4 hands-on: The Galaxy S6 finally has something to worry about

By about 2 hours ago.

When Samsung announced the Galaxy S6 last month, it looked like every other Android smartphone vendor had missed the boat. After years of stagnation, the king of Android devices was returning with its sleekest, coolest, fastest smartphone ever, and other new phones paled in comparison.

All the while, LG was quiet — waiting for the right moment to pounce with one of the most technologically advanced smartphones the world has ever seen.

With the LG G4, it’s all about percentages. The F1.8 aperture lens allows 80% more light to reach the camera sensor. LG’s new 5.5-inch IPS Quantum Display brings 20 percent greater color reproduction, 25 percent improvement in brightness and 50 percent greater contrast than its closest competition.

Google is about to release a new version of Google Maps – get it here before it’s released

Google Maps is, without question, one of the most useful and widely used apps Google has ever created. The service helped change the way we travel, and then it put voice-guided navigation into everyone’s hands… for free. Of course, Google has never been known to rest on its laurels, and the company is constantly updating Maps just as it regularly updates all of its popular mobile apps.

While Google hasn’t yet released its most recent update to the Google Maps Android app, you can already download the company’s latest and greatest version of Google Maps right here. More →

This simple trick could have a big impact on your iPhone’s battery life

Battery life: the final frontier. There is little question that battery life is the one area of mobile technology where developments haven’t been able to keep pace with progress in other areas. Processors are getting faster and more efficient, displays pack a ridiculous number of pixels into incredibly tight spaces, and mobile operating systems have gained great new features that users love. All of this comes at a cost, however, and the impact on battery life is often significant.

Thankfully, there are plenty of tips and tricks that help smartphone users extend their battery life as much as possible. And now, we have a simple new one to share with iPhone users that could ultimately have a pretty big impact on battery life. More →

The iPhone is a juggernaut that can’t stopped

For years, we’ve been hearing analysts and pundits trot out the same old tired line: “Every one who wants an iPhone already has one.” What’s more, a quick Google search reveals an endless stream of articles from years past all championing the exact same sentiment; “The iPhone has peaked.”

Yet every year, like clockwork, Apple manages to release new iPhone models that keep on setting new sales records, quite a feat for a product that was first released nearly 8 years ago.

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

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 about 5 hours ago.

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 →
