All there is to know about the newly released IPhone X

2017 marked the iPhone’s 10 year anniversary. To mark this momentous occasion, Apple went through hell and high water to ensure they blow their customers’ minds away. While everyone was expecting, an iPhone 8 and/or 8 plus, they bombarded us with the suave iPhone X. This phone was hands down the belle of the ball (the apple event) managing to steal the heart of every iPhone fan and without a doubt completely overshadowing the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus. This does not come as a surprise however, since the phone happens to be both a beauty and a beast in performance. Design To ensure that this anniversary was truly momentous, Apple decided to make some drastic changes to the exterior design of the iPhone. The first move being their bold decision to let go of the iconic home button, a feature which has been synonymous with iPhones since their genesis in 2007. This unforeseeable change is thought to mark the beginning of button-less iPhones. However, despite scrapping the home button, users will still be able to access their homepage using a swipe movement. Display To justify its lack of a home button, Apple dubs the iPhone X as the display. That they had this in mind while creating it is crystal clear at a glance. The phone boasts an impressive 5.8 inch, edge to edge screen making it also the first iPhone without bezels. To further solidify its place as a pioneer, it has a never- before-experienced super Retina HD display with 2436 x 1125 pixels that is expected to produce sharper images to greatly enhance a user’s...
Samsung Galaxy S8 Versus iPhone 8: Why Apple Will Outdo Samsung

Samsung Galaxy S8 Versus iPhone 8: Why Apple Will Outdo Samsung

Samsung Galaxy S8 versus Apple iPhone 8 is the battle of titans. When Samsung launched Samsung Galaxy S8, it was considered epic. From the specially curved display to its super camera, the S8 has what even a top executive would want in an ultra-modern piece. But now, even before the dust settles, Apple’s flagship iPhone 8 is threatening to relegate Galaxy S8 to the second place. Here is a comparison of the two to establish which one will take the lead. iPhone 8 is using the latest iOS 11 The unending debate of Android versus iOS appears to be getting even hotter. However, the most recent iOS 11 that iPhone 8 is running on is awesome. iPhone 8 will come with latest upgrades to the Apple Camera, Maps, and Siri. Besides, it also introduced HEIF (High-Efficiency Image Format) that compresses the size of every image you take. This is a great feature that helps to save a lot of space taken by photos. To make iPhone 8 even more personal, Apple added the famous Apple Pay for users to easily transfer cash by simply tapping on the screen. The features do not simply target aesthetics, but to also enhance practicability. For Samsung Galaxy S8 owners, it appears they might be stuck with Android Naught for longer. Well, this is a little disappointing at a time that Naught has been superseded by Oreo. But it will be months before Android Oreo is ready for S8. The new iPhone processor is faster Apple’s thinktank never sleeps. The company takes its time not just to deliver customer satisfaction, but guiding the technology...

4 phone charging myths you thought were real

4 phone charging myths you thought were real

A huge number of the population has got smartphones, and with the intense daily usage, they need to be charged. Users end up with chargers in the car, office and at home constantly charging the phone. This has led to the emergence of a number of myths, and some of them have taken a hold of the society. Here are 5 such myths debunked. Overnight charging kills the battery This is one common myth that has gotten to every household. However, it’s not entirely true. Yes, charging your phone overnight and every night is not a healthy thing to do. It can lead to overheating, so ensure that you place it in a cool area before you plug in that charger. Phones are smarter than you think and can tell when the battery is full. When plugged in, these smartphones stop charging and prevent the battery from being in use. This then prevents them from dying out. Let your phone die out completely before charging it again This is another widespread myth with no basis whatsoever. The worst part about this myth is that it does more harm than good. Letting your phone get to 0% before plugging it in makes it even more unstable. Here’s the thing, your phone has got a finite number of charge cycles so you really shouldn’t let it get to 0% as that subtracts a cycle of the count. Try and maintain the battery charge in the range of 50% to 80% for a longer lifespan. The lithium cells in the batteries are much better off charged than left to get to 0%....

Quick and simple tips to save your iPhone battery life

Quick and simple tips to save your iPhone battery life

Yes, our beloved smartphones, powerful processors and ingenious designs. However, one thing they all have in common is their limited battery life. Having a phone go for a whole day without the need to charge it is always marvelled at. And most phones can’t even get that far. Things get a lot worse for the gamers and intensive phone users. If you’re sick of watching your iPhone battery drain out by the evening, then here are some good practices that would really improve your phone’s battery life.   Enable Wi-Fi assist Yes, Wi-Fi is everybody’s best friend, but sometimes, it can take your battery power down and fast. Low Wi-Fi signals cause the phone to really struggle in maintaining the signal and end up draining the battery in a much shorter period. Wi-Fi assist cuts off access to low-signal Wi-Fi hotspots and enables your data usage instead. Only do this is you’ve got a data plan that you don’t mind using since enabling Wi-Fi assist causes a lot more data usage. Head over to Settings > Cellular and enable the option here.   Go to low power mode This is one of those features that’s hardly used in an iPhone. The low power mode converts your phone into an energy saving machine, only using the most important features you need to get up and running. Whenever your phone gets to 20%, this mode is activated and you’ll experience a much longer lasting battery life. Simply go to Settings > Battery and switch it on.   Turn on auto-brightness Another awesome feature is the auto brightness. People are often oblivious...

Top trends to expect in the mobile phone industry in 2017

So, what are some of the top trends to expect a year or two from now?   Hotter, cooler designs The smartphone giants, namely Apple and Samsung have talked about giving their smartphones a startling new look. The most prominent of rumours are about the unveiling of the foldable Galaxy X. Recent rumours suggest that the phone may be ready by the end of the year. Lenovo even revealed its Cplus foldable prototype that can be worn as a watch. So if you think this is some science fiction, then think again. Such tech may make its appearance much sooner than you think.   Powerful, faster chips As expected, phones are getting closer to the PCs in terms of power. Chips are obviously going to be faster and more powerful. But what makes this trend a big deal is the fact that virtual reality is just taking form. The chips need to be as powerful as they can to support virtual reality. More and more handsets are going to run virtual reality applications and even games. Currently, only the high end phones such as the Galaxy 7 support VR. However, this feature is...
