You might remember that at the launch of the HTC One M8 I wrote an article titled “I was going to switch my iPhone 5s to an HTC One M8, but..” and my arguments for avoiding the change were based on the poor camera, its lack of a fingerprint scanner, and the fact that boom sound wasn’t everything. Fast forward to today, give me an HTC One M8 for a week and now my iPhone is in a drawer. Since a lot of you asked us why this happened in our previous After The Buzz episode of the HTC One (M8), we’ll compare both of these devices in a video, and tell you the reasons why.
One benefit that many people have found in owning Apple iOS products is the combination of its AppleCare+ extended warranty, and Apple’s Genius Bar service. For $99 you receive two years of warranty protection for any iPad or iPhone, and in case of any accidental damage to the device on your part, you could replace your iPad for $49, or iPhone for $79, with a total of two incidents being covered. Sadly if you didn’t purchase the warranty when you bought the product, the most you were allowed to wait was 30 days, though Apple has just decided to change that.

Rumors continue to point to Apple launching its next-generation iPhone 6 during September. For the company to be able to meet demand, manufacturing has to begin months ahead of the launch, which was also a big rumor that happened a couple of weeks ago. At this stage you can expect some finalized iPhone parts to emerge, and today we’ve come across the most important one.
Leaked photos show us a full comparison between the black and the white screen glass of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. These comparison photos also show us what the display looks like when compared to the display [...]
Yes, we’re all still surprised that Apple made such a big buzz about HealthKit on WWDC a couple of days ago, and still the company decided not to launch a wearable. It seems that Apple’s initial focus will mainly be about creating an ecosystem where third party manufacturers can create this fitness and health mentality for you. Love it or hate it, if you’re wondering just how useful an iPhone can be without an iWatch in this department, Apple has decided to show you today.
Apple has just launched a new TV ad called “Strength”, and if you take a [...]
Apple has never been famous for making battery life a priority on its iPhone line-up. Almost every publication praises Apple for how well the iPad line-up and even its Mac line-up performs in that department, but sadly we can’t all say the same about the iPhone. iOS 7 proved to be tough on the iPhone’s battery, and even though some of this was fixed with iOS 7.1, it seems Apple did some additional optimizations.
Reports in some publications have found dramatic improvements in how the battery performs on the iPhone after iOS 7.1.1. The company didn’t publicly [...]
Apple’s launch of CarPlay came with a couple of basic complications, mainly because the launch didn’t include any vehicle that actually supports it. With Car manufacturers launching compatible models until later this year, it’s hard to see a mainstream adoption of the service if you have to purchase a new vehicle to enjoy it. Luckily manufacturers like Pioneer are looking to solve this problem for many of us that don’t plan to buy a new car, and the company has just made its launch plans official.
Pioneer has just announced that it’ll provide a [...]
Apple’s launch of the iPhone 5s came along with a lot of criticism from industry experts, mainly because of the A7 64-bit processor. There’s no denying that this is a 64-bit chip, but until this day, we haven’t seen any dramatic improvements in using an iPhone 5s when compared to an iPhone 5 from last year. Many of us felt that the chip was a marketing stunt, but a recent study from AnandTech wants to prove otherwise.
The study, as with everything that comes from AnandTech is extremely detailed, but explains the substantial differences between Apple’s old [...]
For those of you that thought that 1080p video would be dead on high-end smarpthones this year, well that’s not entirely the way things went with product launches. One thing that is becoming common is for smartphones to be able to record video in up-to 4K resolution, but that is of course, unless you’re using an iPhone. The good thing about the developer community though, is that they always figure out ways to solve the problem, and we might have just found a way to get better quality video on your current iPhone.
An app called Ultrakam is able to allow you to record [...]
