    We've praised Apple for its design of the iPhone ever since its first iteration. Up until the launch of the iPhone 5 and 5s, Apple kept a very positive track record as a company that knew how to deliver flawless design on its smartphone and tablet lineup. Today, we admit we still like Apple's iPad lineup, but we struggle to recommend the iPhone 6 because of some elements in its design, and a famous engineer and designer has built a concept of his own. Business insider recently reported on a very interesting concept design by famous engineer and designer Nikola Cirkovic. Obviously concepts ...

    Can you imagine a world where companies didn’t push the boundaries of thin and light? Some of you may mock these efforts, but that doesn’t change the fact that the best selling smartphones today keep getting thinner and lighter. We can't ignore the fact that one of the best selling smartphones in the world shows a clear obsession for getting slimmer every new iteration, and the same can be said about Oppo's R lineup. Have a look at our comparison video of the Oppo R5 vs the iPhone 6. In a way, this comparison would've been more suited agains the iPhone 6 Plus given the dimensions of ...

    Apple has found a lot of success with the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, even though new rumors claim that the company might build a smaller phone next year as well. Apple's only problem with the launch of its smartphones this year, was being able to meet demand for the iPhone 6 Plus, something logical given Apple's skepticism to launch a phablet in the past. The good thing is that Cupertino already understood that there is significant demand for bigger iPhones, and it seems the company is already preparing for next year's demand. Reports claim that Apple is about to expand its ...

    We all know that one size doesn't fit all, and Apple clearly knew that as well with the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Cupertino acknowledged early on that the market demanded a bigger iPhone, but it also knew that there was another crowd that demanded a phablet. Still, we know that there are people that value one-handed usability, and for them Apple decided to leave the aging iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, and it seems there are plans for that to continue. Reports claim that Apple is already working on building a new iPhone that retains the dimensions of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c ...

    Apple is very famous for retaliating against any company that copies it's designs, and we have the extensive Apple Vs. Samsung trial to prove it. That said, it's extremely common for anyone to find Chinese rip-offs of any iPhone all around Asia. Isn't it odd that today we find news or a Chinese company claiming otherwise? Chinese smartphone maker Digione is claiming that the design of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are a copy of its existing design for a device under its 100+ brand in China. This device is a low-end $130 smartphone that's apparently been available for a while, even though ...

    After a very dramatic end to the relationship between Apple and GT Advanced, you'd think that the whole sapphire project came to an abrupt end. In a way it did, or at least for this year, since we don't really have any Apple product sporting the new display technology that we showed you months ago. That said, Apple has already shown the world that the Apple Watch will sport sapphire in its entry video, and it seems the supplier has just emerged. If you remember, we recently talked about this new $2.6 billion display factory that Foxconn is currently building through its subsidiary InnoLux. ...

    Apple has broken a significant amount of records since the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. We saw how the company sold its fare share of phones in just the first few days of the launch, and obviously this leap also includes an extra share of growth for the company in its services. Apple may not be too happy with its current iTunes performance, but the App Store shows a different story. We still don't have any official data from Apple, but App marketing firm Fiksu has just revealed its numbers for the last couple of months. According to the study conducted through October on the ...

    Even though Apple has never been a fan of the existing Android spec race, that doesn't mean that the company hasn't done its fare share of innovation in hardware with every existing iPhone. The iPhone 5s became famous for sporting the first 64-bit mobile processor, and that legacy has continued with the iPhone 6 and its new A8 chip. What's interesting is that we keep discovering that the processor has more capabilities than those marketed by Apple. The developers of WALTR, an app that allows Mac users to upload and view video files that aren't supported by iOS devices, have discovered that ...

    Recently, I got to try out a prototype of a new product that brings a virtual reality platform to the iPhone 6 and 6+. Pinć is a new device and platform from Cordon Media; a company with experience in building software interfaces for large wall-sized screens, but that doesn't really work on small smartphone screens... unless you turn them into virtual reality goggles. We've already seen Samsung try something like this with their new Gear VR product which can turn the Galaxy Note 4 into an Oculus Rift style portable virtual reality headset. I also got to use that one for a bit, and you ...

    With autumn very much making its presence felt, and the last days of 2014 looming ahead, the mobile electronics market is about to make another of its regular shifts, temporarily moving away from a time dominated by launch after launch, and instead focusing more on getting these products into our hands. We've just come off a couple big months of launches, led in by IFA in early September, and peppered with iPhone, iPad, and Nexus announcements in the weeks that followed. But now with the holiday season arriving as an unavoidable juggernaut, we're about to see the steady flow of new devices ...

    If you're living in the US, we're sure you're already seeing a fair share of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units on the street. Apple has broken a couple of records in sales when it comes to its new smartphone lineup, and that's just after a couple of weeks in the market. If you're wondering which of the two iPhones is selling more, well, analysts seem to have that figure down for you. Apple is sadly never clear about how many models of a specific iPhone have sold in a quarter. Consumer Intelligence Research Partners has recently done a study over the last 30 days and it has noticed that 68% ...

    Many boast that Apple's support for legacy devices is better than its competitors, and in a way, we could say that is true. You can walk into any Apple Store and notice customers still getting support for Macs and iPhones that are years old, which is great, but that doesn't mean that Apple doesn't try to convince you to upgrade through some planned obsolescence. Many complained that even though the legacy iPhone 4s and iPad 2 were still supported by iOS 8, this slowed their devices to a crawl, and it seems that Apple has decided to address that. Apple has just launched iOS 8.1.1, which we ...

    The iPhones (iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus) of 2014 are bigger; both of them. Apple has finally decided to give up on whatever it was that made the company stick to the form factor of the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, and the slightly smaller ones on the 4s, 4, and previous generation. Samsung played a huge role in setting a trend for bigger smartphones with its first Galaxy Note, and, ever since, the industry has been moving in the direction of bigger screens. The way it was before the two iPhones of this year, most of the competition's mini phones were larger than Apple's flagship. However, Apple ...

    Cloud storage has gained a significant level of popularity lately, and that’s mainly because technology is helping it become seamless. Surely it would’ve been easier if US Carriers wouldn’t have dropped their unlimited data plans, but it’s hard to deny that things “just work” in most of the cloud storage services we see in the market. One of the pioneers of the cloud mentality was Apple with its MobileMe services, though that particular story was so full of horror that the company ended up fixing it and rebranding it to iCloud. Steve Jobs envisioned a service that would ...
