Samsung S8 Details That Make It Irresistible

When Samsung announced that it will release the Samsung Galaxy S8 in March 2017, the market was thrown into a frenzy. For the first quarter of 2016, Samsung sold 13.3 million units of Galaxy S7 Edge and commanded a whopping 2.3% share of all Android phones. However, the release of iPhone 7 brought a new twist into the market which made Samsung go back to the drawing board. Now, the flagship Samsung S8 is ready for release and the market cannot wait for this priceless piece. Here is a complete review of what to expect and why you need to buy it after release.   The Galaxy S8 Display The mysterious outlook of the Galaxy S7 Edge has been improved to include the dual-curved edges and deliver a super wide 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The curvy appearance on S8 will redefine what really makes a smartphone because it has removed the Home Button. Instead, it has adopted the slimmer bezels located above and below the tall display. Just like the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, the new S8 will be available in two sizes, the S8 (5.8-inch display) and S8 Plus (6.2-inch display). Both S8 and S8 Plus will come with the best Quad HD resolution for great viewership. This will make the new smartphone among the best for watching videos.     The smartphone design When Samsung released the previous S6 and S7 models, it stuck to the attractive glass and metal designs. While these designs have been very effective by creating a special attachment to users, some refinements have been introduced. The shot that users can scroll through...

A Look at Outrageous Common Mobile Phone Myths

We all heard them, read them and even implored by clueless friends that should we not follow and observe them to the letter, we are doomed. I am talking about mobile phone myths some of which are outrageous so to speak. We’ve come to take the said myths as gospel truths that challenging the fallacious beliefs has become somewhat of an uphill task. We all have received emails forwarded religiously every now and then on the dos and don’ts regarding mobile phones and their use. However, most of these are just myths and untruths meant to whip us into line or observe some of tradition premised on fear. That said, let’s take a look at some of the most common outrageous mobile phone myths. Myth #1: using your mobile phone at the petrol station can lead to an explosion I mean, who wouldn’t be worried about this prospect? This myth, as uninformed as it is, has been held as gospel truth since mobile phones became mainstream. However, this belief is unfounded and baseless so to speak. The truth of the matter is that the electromagnetic field that is created by mobile phones and the current generated by the batteries are far too weak to ignite an explosion. So why are the warnings clear in phone manuals as well as gas stations? Why is it that mobile phone users are strongly warned to desist using their mobile phones at petrol stations? Well, believe you me, it is a case of being safer than sorry. Myth #2: you receive a free phone under a phone contract The principle of economics state...

The Epitome of Modern Mobile Design: Anticipating The Samsung Galaxy X

The mobile world is in for a tremendous shakeup as 2017 promises to be a great year for smartphones and other devices. Several key products will be launching this year, giving consumers plenty to look forward to. First on most tech manufacturers’ agenda this year are products built on the emerging popularity of virtual reality (VR) products. Apple is set to come out with a completely revamped iPhone in the 4th quarter of the year. The new product line will feature all-glass builds and AMOLED displays, and will most likely compete closely against the highly anticipated Samsung flagship, the Galaxy X. The Samsung Galaxy X is a definite game changer, and while Apple and VR technology stand to gain a huge share of the consumer market, Samsung is essentially assured of its own niche thanks to the Galaxy X’s revolutionary features. Design and Display The Samsung Galaxy X is rumoured to have what is in all likelihood the product’s most talked about feature: a flexible folding Super AMOLED display. This one feature sets the Galaxy X apart from other smartphones because it brings back the old folding clamshell phone design, this time with a modern touch. As far as screen resolution goes, no official specifications have been released but earlier prototype demos have shown that Samsung’s flexible folding Super AMOLED displays run at full 1080p HD. There are also talks of the Galaxy X featuring a 4K display. If true, the Galaxy X won’t be the first smartphone to feature a 4K display, but it will definitely be one of the coolest looking flagship products on the market. Other...

A look at the common myths about mobile phones

The unfortunate thing about myths is that majority of people tend to take them as gospel truth. So common are the myths that people have difficulty accepting the truth. That notwithstanding, there is no denying that the internet has since its advent become the perfect place for certain individuals to spread lies. Unfortunately these lies are taken as gospel truth by various individuals who simply are too lazy to learn the truth or simply do not take measures to verify how true information being peddled on the internet is. It is for this reason that today we are going to take a look at some of the common myths regarding mobile phones. Mobile phone contracts are fixed term contracts Granted, a good number of people apply for mobile phone contracts in the belief that they are fixed term contracts. While this is always the major selling point of many mobile phone contract providers, the reality of the matter is that this is not always the case. In certain cases, the devil is always in the details. We’ve also seen instances where various mobile phone contract providers increase prices to the existing customers on the pretext of inflation or as a result of any other factor which by all means might be a surprise to a customer who had a fixed budget. It is therefore important that you carefully read the fine print prior to appending your signature on the dotted line of a phone contract. Phone unlocking is illegal You might feel as if unlocking your phone for the purposes of using it on another network is illegal but...

Ensuring your smartphone battery lasts!

As a smartphone owner, you no doubt know the feeling. You may have charged your phone overnight and have 100% power at the start of the day but come late afternoon and your phone battery is down to its last bit of power. Although batteries have certainly improved, they hardly last a day. This is because we are constantly busy with our phones, checking emails, surfing the web, checking out social media, using apps and playing games. No wonder the batteries don’t last! In this blog, we are going to look at a few tips and tricks that could help your battery last a bit longer. Keep your charger close Before you start practicing battery saving tips, it’s always useful to have a charger with you. Why not buy a second one and keep it in your bag. That way, if your phone needs a quick charge all you need to do is find a plug point. The great thing about modern smartphones is that most of them charge relatively quickly, so even if you plug it in for 10 minutes, you can easily add 20 to 30 percent battery power. If finding a plug point is a problem, consider a mobile power bank. These can give your battery a boost without the need to ask someone if you can use their power. A cool battery lasts longer High temperatures are a real danger to your smartphone battery. Why? Well, if your battery is left in the sun, or placed on a hot surface, it will heat up significantly. This just reduces the life span of the battery significantly....

Top Reasons to Make the Switch to a Mobile Contract

If you’re planning to buy a new phone and are in a dilemma of whether to get one under contract or not, then this post is for you! Read on to find out the advantages of a phone contract over pay as you go and see for yourself if it’s worth it. No Top Ups Definitely one of the best advantages with a contract is that you can keep on using your carrier’s services without having to top up your credits. Oftentimes it’s a bit frustrating when you need to make that emergency call and suddenly you realized that you don’t have any credits left. Subsidised Handset Costs It’s true that when you get a contract, the actual month to month costs will always be expensive over the long haul as compared to purchasing the phone upfront. However, many of us do not have the cash to buy the phone that we want in the first place, which is why getting a mobile contract is always an attractive option, particularly if you’re eyeing the newest smartphone in the market. Better Customer Service In many cases, mobile contract clients typically get better services than non-contract clients. Although this doesn’t always hold true, it makes sense because phone contract clients are committing at least two years to the provider, and these providers will naturally do their best to keep their customers happy so that they will want to renew once the contract has ender. Network Priority Although it doesn’t come often, there are times when the networks become highly congested. In those cases, the providers will most likely favour those who...
