RedFox88: If what is in iOS 9 is rumored to be true, just the O/S update alone is aimed to bury Android once and for all!

buy an LG then and you get all what you are asking for...

as long as Apple doesn't change its pricing Android won't be buried any time soon...

RichRMA: Nothing like "editing" images on a 4-5 inch screen.

you only use the iPhone screen as a graphics tablet...you still see the image on the screen of the Mac...the image you get on the iPhone is kind of a bonus...

On VHS Camcorder for iOS takes you back to the 80s post (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

tbcass: Sheer stupidity. Why would anybody want to purposely take poor quality video other than trying to simulate it for a 1980s period movie?

well, "fun", like many things in life, is something very subjective :)

I think that's exactly what it's meant for, simulating the 80s, be it for a movie project or for fun at a party. Obviously it is not meant to be used as a permanent video app.

McCool69: ...and just like that Instagram lost the one thing that made them stand out a little bit.

well, they don't oblige you to post portrait format...and many users are posting landscape or portrait format already...so really the difference won't be that great...

BigShooter: Wow, how good of them to warranty their faulty product.

Are they supposed to be praised for this?

Just make it right in the first place, quit wasting our time and resources.

no, they should not be praised but I guess this story could still be of interest to iPhone 6 Plus owners.

On Huawei's Honor 7i comes with 13MP flip-out camera post (50 comments in total)
In reply to:

quiquae: Wouldn't you want something a bit wider than 28mm for the front camera?

well, life's one big compromise, if you want rear cam quality at the front you'll have to make do with the 28mm...but you are right, personally I'd prefer a little less wide angle on the rear and a little more on the front but that's difficult to implement with one camera module.

Mister Joseph: Still waiting for a "Sony Xperia Pro 2" type of phone, with a horizontal slider qwerty keyboard with real buttons, and an ergonomic shape.

These shiny, delicate, super thin phones that are hard to hold, pain in the butt to type, and super easily scratched don't make sense. They're more of a jewelry rather than a functional device.

yes, only covers a small portion though and the screen adapts automatically...looks quite clever to me although I have not used one yet...

Hellstrom: The Edge Plus offers less storage than the Edge. What a joke! Should be called the Edge Minus.

I have no idea why anyone would need that much storage on a phone...I am using a Moto G with 8GB just now...but the X Style certainly looks like a sweet device...

In reply to:

ealvarez: buy a powerbank problem solved for battery problem. But yes no memory card slot kind of sucked

the two hours charging is for wireless charging, presumably wired charging takes a lot less time but in any case obviously you can keep using your phone while it has an external battery connected. I would not want to carry those things all the time but I have one in my laptop backpack when I go to trade shows and other events and know my device will get an awful lot of use...

GatanoII: Phablets must not be used any more as a word, this are just big smartphones, that today is the right size for most users (luckily the ones that used to say 3.5inch was perfect are finally dead, metaphorically and one for real, unlikely)

I have the Note 4 that is also 5.7 inch and the even bigger 6.4 inch Sony Xperia Z Ultra and are just big smartphones, wait a minute, the Note 4 (and 5) is now a NORMAL smartphone, may be only the Z Utra is the big one, but still a smartphone, I'll love to have a Samsung Note with this screen size... but I have to live with the water proof and stylish Sony ;)

BTW the loss of the MicroSD is huge, I have both my phones with 128GB Samsung MicroSD and the fact that I can remove the memory card is very important, even more then the removable battery, really useful only when the phone is at it's end of life and you want to still keep it, by changing the old battery with a new one.

thanks for clarifying that :)

well, the plus refers to the screen size....but I just heard now that there will also be a 128GB version which only makes sense given there is no MicroSD...

Digital Suicide: I'm pretty sure that RAW support will be added some time later through firmware update. The same way S6 received it.

there have been rumors for quite some time but I have not seen anything actually out there...that doesn't have to mean it doesn't exist though :)

Hellstrom: Did some digging around - there is a new Motorola X Style coming out next month with 64GB on board and expandable storage. And 21MP. And cheaper price. Why would anyone buy Samsung?

you needed digging to find that out? We reported it pretty comprehensively about on this site :)

G4 to Note 4 is an upgrade? That is at least debatable :)

Michael EOS5D: It sounds like the battery in this Note 4 has more capacity and charges faster. The quick charger is very fast, certainly wouldn't take 2 hours to charge from 0-100%.

the difference on the new model is that it's wireless...once there are more public charging points that'll actually make a real difference.
