    With the arrival of new CEO Marcelo Claure, Sprint is looking to shake things up and grab itself customers. This is largely an uphill battle for the company though, and a difficult one at that – the company is frequently stereotyped as the carrier where you'll never have service. While that's pretty far from the truth these days, it is indeed a fact that Sprint is the least reliable major US carrier, so it has to counter that by enticing customers with sweet-looking plans. The latest new Sprint plan? Pay $50, get unlimited everything (with support for Spark LTE, too). But there's a bit ...

    At about this time of year every year, we're faced with the same situation. Apple has just gone official with a new iPhone (two new iPhones, this time), and in that process discounted the pricing of the last-gen models. So is it worth skipping on the upgrades and grabbing a cheaper phone instead? Let's have a look in our Apple iPhone 6 vs iPhone 5s comparison chart. The good thing is, unlike what happened with Sony's flagship Xperia line, nothing has got worse between generations. And there's a commendable set of upgrades, too – it's more than clear that this isn't just an incremental ...

    This has been a very interesting year for smartphone technology. Seven years ago we would’ve never thought that smartphones would be as big as they are today, nor that we’d have better display resolution on our phones, than we do on the average television set. This year 2K displays, waterproof technology, stereo speakers, aluminum, and even the emerging LTE Advanced are the new thing, even though only a few smartphone manufacturers are pulling most of these off. After seven years, I finally decided to switch the iPhone as my daily driver because of all these trends. Surely my choice ...

    Love it or hate it, iPhone day is iPhone day. This is one of the most anticipated events of the year, and Apple did what it can do best, which is try to sell its new products to you through its keynote address. Today we saw the company announce the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, two devices which were highly leaked all throughout the year. We also saw Apple announce new services like Apple Play in order to address the mobile payments sector, one that hasn't taken off since its inception under Google's leadership. And yes, there was "One more thing," the Apple Watch, which we did expect to ...

    The new iPhones are here; earlier today, Apple officially launched both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and while we're tempted to start calling these the "big" and "little" new iPhones, that's a bit a misnomer, as compared to previous generations, both new Apple smartphones soundly fall in that same "big" category. Size may be the most obvious factor separating these two iPhones, a consideration that spills over into categories like screen resolution, but that's not the only difference between the two. To help you with an at-a-glance breakdown of some of the key iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus ...

    Apple just announced its latest iPhone models, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Among the laundry list of hardware features just confirmed for these two phones is NFC support, Apple's first foray into the tech on its smartphones. With its arrival, Apple's finally ready to get into the mobile payment game, launching its Apple Pay system. Apple Pay lets users add payment cards to Passbook with their phones' cameras, securely storing your data. It supports Visa, Master Card, and American Express, and a number of big-name banks are similarly on board. Beyond tap-to-pay at retail locations, ...

    IFA 2014 has passed its mobile launch baton to Apple, and today in California, with members of the press in attendance at the Flint Center and millions of Apple fans watching at home, it's time to announce the company's latest products and services. With Tim Cook beginning the event with promises of "the biggest advancement in the history of iPhone," our attention is piqued. Wasting little time, we get right to the meat of today's event, as Apple announces the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. The iPhone 6 is our 4.7-inch model, while the iPhone 6 Plus is the 5.5-inch version. The resolution of ...

    Today's the day, everyone. After months of anticipation, speculation, and leaks, we have it just the way we like it – we have a general idea of what to expect from the Cupertino company, but the launch is still shrouded in mystery. The event today isn't just limited to members of the press, as there's a full Apple iPhone 6 event live stream and many other ways of learning about the announcements as they arrive. The best way to get your Apple fix today is through the company's own live stream, which should be going live at the link at the bottom of this post just a bit before the event ...

    Love it or hate it, tomorrow is probably one of the biggest days of the year for the smartphone market. Apple may not be the biggest smartphone seller in the world, but the world's most popular smartphone has belonged to Apple almost every year, since its inception in the summer of 2007. There are a ton of rumors of what to expect for Apple's September 9 event, so let's try to place all these rumors into perspective, as it seems that Apple is launching more than one product tomorrow. iPhone 6 Rumors claim that Apple is planning to change everything all over again when it comes to the ...

    We've criticized the approach that many OEMs have taken with tablets and phablets because many have decided to simply increase the display size, and very few have done a smart job at giving you an added level of usability through it. Apple and Samsung have both done an amazing job with their iPad and Galaxy Note lineup, but with the rumors of a 5.5-inch iPhone 6, you'd wonder how Apple is planning to approach its first phablet. Developer Steven Throughton-Smith recently decided to modify Apple's iOS simulator in order to portray what apps would look like on a 5.5-inch display and 2208 x ...

    There's been no shortage of Apple hardware leaks going back the past few months now, and the question's been less one of “when are we going to start seeing some iPhone 6 stuff” and more one of “just which of these many, many leaks is the real deal?” But as we close in on next week's anticipated launch date, we've found the chaff separating from wheat, and a clearer image of the phone's hardware emerging. This weekend we move beyond component shots and dummy models, and even fully-assembled handsets, to seeing one captured in operation on video. It's just a short clip, but it does ...

    We're four days away September 9, when Apple will do its darnedest to have us forgetting IFA and instead turn all our attention to the latest iOS launches. Exactly what will be on the menu has been a point of contention for months, and as sources go back and forth over our chances for seeing new tablets and wearables (as opposed to getting them later this year), there's little doubt in anyone's mind that we'll get at least one new iPhone 6 model. Taking that much for granted, what happens next – when might the iPhone 6 actually be available for sale? We've talked about some possibilities ...

    It's pretty much confirmed that Apple will announce its next generation iPhone 6 on its September 9 event. We've even heard some interesting rumors that Apple will also launch the iWatch at the same time. What we weren't prepared for was for is for some rumors that claim that Apple plans to do the same with the iPad Air 2. KGI Securities is claiming various things about Apple's September 9th event. Among these is that Apple is planning to announce the new iPad Air at this event, and not in October as Apple has done historically. Up to this point there were no credible rumors that pointed ...

    Many of you may not remember this, but at the launch of the first-generation iPhone, the average size on a smartphone display was around 2.5-inches. Apple started to create the need for a bigger smartphone display, but the competition has left the Cupertino kids way behind over the last couple of years. Since then, Apple has touted that one-handed usability is the company's priority, and when we go through the leaks of the iPhone 6, it seems that even then, Apple is figuring something out. The same New York Times article that we discussed earlier also sheds some light on what to expect for ...
