iPhone 7 Rumor Rollup: Into another Galaxy; India up next?
Apple iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 rumors took a back seat this past week to Samsung and its latest Galaxy smartphones, complete with painful introduction event. The reviews for Samsung’s latest, the 5.7-inch Note 5 and S6 Edge+ have been generally positive, though Apple no doubt regain center stage next month, when it is expected to unveil the 4.7-inch iPhone 6S and 5.5-inch 6S Plus. Then again, what if the underwhelmly-named iPhone 6S and 6S Plus flop? One site, iDigitalTimes, suggests that could be enough to push Apple to speed up the introduction of a next set of flagship phones, namely the iPhone 7s. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Worried about battery issues in Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge? Try the Nexus 6
Six months into owning a Nexus 6, I'm feeling lucky I chose it. The complaints about the battery life of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, which can be found at the Next Web and Android Central, inspired my gratitude to this massive hunk of glass, polycarbonate, and metal frame. Now that the bloom of newness has past, I've been taking the Nexus 6's battery for granted, just expecting this phablet to perform.  To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Kicking Google out of my life, Part 7: Why I relapsed, and will again soon
In June, I set out on a most excellent adventure – to completely remove all traces of Google from my life within 30 days (followed by living, completely de-Googled, for an additional 30 days). Since that time, I've been chronicling my journey. My personal path to total Google-less-ness: erasing ChromeOS, Android, Gmail, Drive/Docs and Search from my daily life.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Hey Samsung! 2007 called, and it wants its Blackberry-style keyboard back!
I remember when one of the world's leading smartphone makers pretty much bet the company that its physical keyboard would save the company from the onslaught of superior devices that relied on touchscreen typing. Blackberry lost that bet, of course, and physical keyboards haven't garnered much attention in the last few years.See also: A Requiem for Blackberry  But last week, Samsung trotted out a time machine, and introduced a snap-on physical keyboard accessory for its new Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5 Smartphones. By all accounts, the new devices are exemplary in many ways (and in the changing landscape of smartphone economics, any high-priced new flagship phone had better be awesome). But for me, several factors made the physical keyboard accessory far more interesting than the brand new phones it attaches to.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

iPhone 6s Force Touch feature will boost usability
As opposed to past years, it remains to be seen what the key selling point of Apple's next-gen iPhone will be. Even going back just a few generations, killer features and incentives to upgrade were obvious: the iPhone 4s had Siri, the iPhone 5 had a bigger display, the 5s had Touch ID, and the iPhone 6 came with gargantuan displays.With the iPhone 6s launch just about a month away, the product isn't exactly shrouded in mystery, yet a killer feature remains somewhat elusive. If forced to pick, it seems that Force Touch -- the same technology Apple first introduced on the Apple Watch -- may be positioned as the iPhone 6s' most alluring feature. That being the case, just how Apple plans to implement Force Touch on its next-gen iPhone remain open to speculation.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

iPhone 6s, Apple TV, and iPad Pro launch event set for September 9
With August already in full-swing, we're just weeks away from Apple taking the wraps off its next-gen iPhone. And now, thanks to a report from Buzzfeed, we finally have an idea as to when we can expect to see what surprises Apple has in store for us when Tim Cook introduces the iPhone 6s.According to John Paczkowski, Apple's next big event will more than likely take place on Wednesday, September 9. There, Apple will introduce the iPhone 6s which, while not sporting any true aesthetic differences, will carry a number of software and hardware improvements.Of course, it's a given that the iPhone 6s will come with Apple's next-gen A-x processor. It's also been reported that the iPhone 6s will finally feature 2GB of RAM. Both of these additions should help make the iPhone user experience that much more snappy.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

Sprint fires back at T-Mobile with perpetual iPhone upgrade program
As new iPhones loom, Sprint is joining T-Mobile in trying to rope in new subscribers with a perpetual upgrade offer.Under the “iPhone Forever” program, new and upgrade-eligible Sprint customers can trade in their current phone and get a new iPhone 6 for $15 per month, plus the cost of wireless service. Sprint will then let those customers upgrade to the next iPhone by December 31 at no extra charge.There are a couple of caveats here: The deal requires either an individual unlimited plan ($60 per month, plus the aforementioned $15 per month for the phone) or a Family Share Pack plan (starting at $100 per month with four lines and 10 GB of shared data for new subscribers, plus the $15 per month fee for each phone.) The $15 per month phone price is a limited-time deal, and it jumps to $22 per month with any iPhone upgrade after December 31. In other words, you’ll still pay $15 per month after upgrading to the next iPhone (let’s call it the iPhone 6S), but once you get the iPhone after that (the iPhone 7, perhaps), the monthly phone fee rises to $22 per month. The deal is similar to one that T-Mobile is currently offering to its subscribers: For $15 per month, anyone who trades in for an iPhone 6 by September 7 can upgrade to the next iPhone at no extra charge.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More
