The iPhone 6S: Whats So Different About It?

Published by:

Design

This go round Apple has decided to go back to it’s roots. Apple has decided that the iPhone 6s should have an all aluminum back with rounded edges. A design we haven’t seen with Apple since 2007. In my humble opinion it was much needed as aluminum doesn’t scratch easily and is very simple to and easy to keep clean. Also Apple has decided to stick with phone sizes 4 inches and below to improve us-ably. Something we didn’t see in the iPhone 6+.

3D Touch

Multi-touch has been a feature that has around since 2007 when the first iPhone came out. It was the ability to pitch the screen with two fingers and zoom in or out. After that is has been a feature in every smart phone built ever since. With 3D Touch pushing rapidly but firmly into the home-screen now causes a new stylish transparent menu to appear over that icon, letting you select between various choices. These let you jump directly into the section of the app you want from the home-screen itself. But this is just the beginning, and relatively boring compared to what 3D Touch allows for inside of apps.

Touch ID

Apple presented their unique fingerprint reader when the iPhone 5S came out in 2013. Rather than requiring a four or more digit password to enter the phone, TouchID allowed Apple to coordinate a unique fingerprint scanner into the home button—permitting you to wake your gadget and enter it with only one tap. A large number of the competitors like Samsung’s most recent phones have made up for lost time and added unique fingerprint sensors to their telephones also. The iPhone 6S one-ups the opposition by making it almost instant.

Hey Siri

The iPhone 6S utilizes improvements to Apple’s M9 processor to keep the gadget continually listening for the expression “Hey Siri,” so you no longer need to long press the home button on your new iPhone to get to Apple’s computerized aide. “Hey Siri” is likewise accessible to more established iPhone clients when their device has been upgraded to iOS 9 and remain plugged in via a charging cord. So now won’t all iPhones sound off when somebody says “Hey Siri” in crowd? Short answer is “NO”, iOS 9 suggest you to “train” Siri to recognize your voice.

Camera

The iPhone 6S now includes an 12 megapixel camera. A step up from the 8 megapixel camera in the iPhone 6. Also the front facing camera has been upgraded to 5 megapixels from 1.2 in the iPhone 6.

iOS 9

There are numerous new elements that come standard with iOS now in the most recent upgrade called iOS 9. To such an extent that it’s verging on meriting its own post which I may give later on. However, there a couple of new features here that significantly influence buying the new iPhone 6S.

For starers the App Switcher 3D Touch Gesture and Live Photos are 6S-specific iOS 9 features. They have even included a “Back To” your previous app feature as well “which was much needed in my option”.

Overall

The iPhone 6S like all other iPhones that came before it aren’t cheap. The phones starts at $650 USD but Apple does make it affordable for most people by offering The Apple Upgrade Program. A program that lets you get the newest iPhone for $32 a month. It comes with AppleCare (usually costs $130 on its own), the gadget is opened and clients can move up to the new iPhone every year in the event that they give back the past one. Some may lean toward their bearers renting projects or purchasing the telephone out and out. In spite of the fact that it could be financially savvy for Apple clients who know which telephone they are moving up to every year.

How to Ensure Your Smartphone is Properly Secured

Published by:

There is a great likelihood that you use your smartphone for browsing the internet more often than your desktop or laptop these days. Yet just because you are using your smartphone for your browsing does not mean you need to be any less security conscious on your smartphone than you would be on your normal computer. In fact, you may very well need to be more security conscious.

Smartphone security has a lot more to it other than making sure someone else doesn’t pickpocket your phone and sell it on eBay for $50. You also need to protect your data and personal information that is contained on your smartphone and make sure that your phone isn’t infected by mobile malware that has become a major threat as of the last few years. There are plenty of problems out there, so you need to know what will defend you.

Smartphone

Here are some of the main ways that you can keep your smartphone and its data under lock and key:

Use a Virtual Private Network

Considering where they are most often used, smartphones are most vulnerable when they are browsing the internet or conducting transactions on public networks. Public networks often have no protection installed on them, so any person or administrator with a simple setup can intercept personal data that your smartphone is sending or receiving. This can lead to identity theft and a host of other troubles, including stolen accounts and impersonation.

You can secure your phone from this threat by using a Virtual Private Network (VPN), which is a service that will connect your smartphone to a secure offsite server using an encrypted connection. What you can expect from this is a higher level of privacy from your IP address being masked by the server. You can also expect protection on any network because the connection created will have a high level of encryption, which won’t allow anyone to view what you are doing on your phone. You will be able to use just about any network you want without fear.

You will need to pick one out, but there are a lot of VPNs out there that will not live up to their claims. For this reason, try checking out reviews from sources such as Secure Thoughts and VPN Reviewz that are trusted names in the industry.

Lock Screens and Keeping it on Your Person

One of the simplest things that you can do in order to increase your security is set up a lock screen, whether it is a long PIN number, a password or a fingerprint. Use whatever you feel is best for your lifestyle and your phone. This will keep hackers and thieves out of your phone for at least a little while, so you can discover your phone is missing and contact the right resources should it get stolen.

Yet it is best if it doesn’t come to that, so you need to make sure that you keep your smartphone on your person or in a secure location at all times. If you don’t trust a concert venue or similar location that takes and stores smartphones, keep it tucked away in the car or at home. Some people like to use armbands that can hold phones for security purposes. Just make sure that you always know where it is so that you never have to worry about that sort of security breach.

Only Use Trusted Apps

A lot of credit has to be given to the major smartphone app stores for keeping their listings relatively free of malicious apps. Nonetheless, some apps still escape through the cracks and stay on the stores for a couple of weeks until the truth is discovered. When using any app store, take a look at any reviews that the app has or whether the app has any reviews in the first place. Complaints about the app are fine, but any mentions of malware and you should steer clear.

If you aren’t entirely certain about an application, do not download it. Your smartphone functioned fine without it before you knew of its existence and it will function fine after. Do not trust anything that looks too good to be true because it most certainly is a trap. Above all, don’t trust anything that isn’t on an approved app store.

Safe Browsing Habits

Many of the basics of smartphone security come down to you and your usage habits. What do you download onto your smartphone? Are you only downloading things that you are 100 percent certain are safe? Are you sharing folders on a cloud service without double checking what is in the folder? Are you conducting financial transactions on applications that might not be safe? Do you have any security apps installed on your device? These are all questions you need to answer.

Your educated instincts will help steer you in the right direction. The details of smartphone security will change as frequently as the devices themselves, but you can always expect vigilance and caution to be the two guiding values that will lead you to a more secure life.

Samsung Galaxy O Model Devices Could Be Coming Soon

Published by:

Samsung Galaxy O5

Samsung mobile has literally used half of the English alphabets in naming their devices. From Galaxy A series down to Z series (A, E, J, K, S, V, Z) now it seems the giant mobile maker is planning to add alphabet O to it’s line-up.

While Samsung’s naming scheme tends not to actually follow an alphabetical arrangement order, Samsung flagships are listed under the S series – Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and the likes, next in line are the A series – Galaxy A5, Galaxy A7, and the likes, the lowest in the alphabetical naming scheme are the J – J3, J5, etc. There’s also the Z family, housing the Tizen devices. Other alphabets in their portfolio are the K series, which are a camera hybrid, the V seies which are entry-level smartphones, and a tablet with the alphabet W.

With the O series coming, we are curious were these new set of devices would fall under in the complicated Samsung hierarchy. We hear the said devices would be dubbed Galaxy O5 and Galaxy O7, but there’s no word out on the specs of the device, so we can’t categorically tell if we are looking at entry level devices or a new set of flagships.

IFA 2015 is coming up in a few weeks, so we might just be getting some official info about the two mysterious O devices from Sammy.

LG G Pad 2 8.0 Tablet Launched In South Korea

Published by:

LG-G-Pad-2-8.0-4

While Samsung has been causing quite an uproar in the mobile market with the launch of the dual phablets – Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+, LG was secretly rolling out the G Pad 2 8.0 Tablet. LG G Pad 2 8.0 as it’s name suggests, is the successor to last year’s mid-range LG G Pad 8.0.

The new G Pad 2 8.0 isn’t so impressing however, as when compared to its direct predecessor, the latest tablet from the stables of LG Mobile doesn’t seem to have any new offering for us. The hardware innards seem to be regressing instead.

The LG G Pad 2 8.0 packs an 8″ IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 800 x 1200 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC with a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, 1.5GB of RAM, 32GB of microSD expandable internal storage (other versions may be launched with more or less internal storage space), and a 4200mAh battery.

In the camera department, the LG G Pad 2 8.0 comes with a 5MP primary shooter and the back and a 2MP secondary camera on the front. On the software side, the slab runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, which is a bit surprising given that the newer Android 5.1 Lollipop has been available for a few good months now.

One particularly interesting detail about LG’s new mid-range tablet is that it comes with a full-sized USB 2.0 port, which is an uncommon feature for a mid-sized tablet, especially an Android-based one. As one of LG’s promotional images show (see them all below), the port can be used to attach an external keyboard or even gaming controllers. At a first glance, the external keyboard might be a more natural fit for the LG G Pad 2.0, seeing that the tablet comes with pre-loaded with MS Word, Excel, and Powerpoint, the holy triad of Microsoft productivity Office apps for Android tablets. Like most productivity-minded tablets, the LG G Pad 2 8.0 also comes with a stylus, one that measures 3.5mm across the waist and is touted to allow for accurate input.

At the moment, the LG G Pad 2 8.0 is only available in South Korea, but given the manufacturer’s previous launch patterns, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the slab reach more Western markets such as Europe and North America. It also wouldn’t be unthinkable for LG to launch a smaller 7-inch version and a larger 10.1-inch versions of the LG G Pad 2 as well. We’ll keep you updated with more information as soon as it becomes available.

Published by:

Samsung-Galaxy-Note-5 taiwan

The latest released flagship phablet from the stable of Korean tech giant – Samsung, the Galaxy Note5 has started selling in Taiwan. Thus, Taiwan is the first country to get the newly launched device.

The reason for the decision to send the Galaxy Note5 first is according to reports, “the fact that the Note series has been a roaring success in the country”. The device pricing starts at 740USD for the 32GB variant, while the higher up memory 64GB variant costs around 820USD, although the latter won’t be available until the end of the ongoing month. So if you are a memory junkie, you’d have to wait for a few weeks

Samsung Galaxy Note5 would be going on sale in the US late next week on August 21. The device would hit Verizon and the pricing shelled out on contracts include; $32 per month for 24 months using Verizon’s installment plan, adding up to a total of $768 for the 32GB variant, while the 64GB version will increase to $864 upfront, or $36 per month spread over two years. The Note5 is however, not coming over to Europe anytime soon, so if you are anxious about owing the device, you would have to import it or wait till sometime next-year when Samsung plans to send it in.

Samsung Galaxy Note5 Finally Launched with 5.7″ and Exynos 7420 Chip

Samsung-Galaxy-Note-5

Yesterday saw the official launch of Samsung’s most anticipated device Galaxy Note 5. The device launched in an event dubbed Samsung Unpacked, and along side it was the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+. Both devices are a revolutionary twist in mobile phablets with some great next-gen specs.
Samsung-Galaxy-Note-5

Samsung Galaxy Note5 features a 5.7″ Super AMOLED sleek display. The innards of the device includes Samsung’s in-house developed Exynos 7420 chipset, and packs a hefty 4GB of RAM, the storage on the Note5 is based on the fast UFS 2.0 standard. While it outruns regular eMMC 5.0 storage, data hoarders have been locked out of expanding the memory – the base model has 32GB, you can upgrade to 64GB and that’s it. There’s no room for expanding memory via a microSD slot, and no hefty 128GB option either.

Like storage options, you won’t be super happy with the battery of the Note5 as Samsung did a downgrade of the Note 4’s hefty 5500mAh, you now get a capacity of just 3,000mAh, and worse still, the battery of the Galaxy Note5 is not remove-able. It seems Sammy is counting on the modified Fast Charging of the device (both the wired and wireless) to compensate for the battery hiccups.

Samsung-Galaxy-Note-5
On the photographic side, the camera retains the Galaxy S6 shooters, i.e. a 16MP sensor behind a wide f/1.9 aperture, plus optical image stabilization and auto real-time HDR. It can record 2160p video or livestream 1080p to YouTube. For selfies you get a 5MP sensor and an f/1.9 aperture.

Samsung has updated the audio department with Ultra High Quality Audio, which promises “richer” sound. This feature will work over Bluetooth with new compatible Level On headphones.

Samsung-Galaxy-Note-5
The Galaxy Note5 checks wireless all boxes, but a highlight is Samsung Pay, which works over NFC or MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission). Pay will launch in the US in September so it will be ready when Note5s arrive in users’ hands.
he Samsung Galaxy Note5 will be available for pre-order today, coming in Black Sapphire, White Pearl, Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium.

If you are eyeing the new Samsung Galaxy Note5, then you don’t need to wait long. The device will be available in the US on August 21, with pre-orders starting today. You can go for a hands-on as soon as tomorrow in 7,000 locations across the US. Pricing will be announced by the carriers. For European buyers, there’s no Galaxy Note5 for you this year.
