I'm looking to upgrade my phone from my current iPhone 5. I would be buying the phone off contract so price is a factor, but only a small one as I'm hoping to sell my current one to take away some of the financial hit of buying either of the phones in question.
I want a phone with a large screen size, hence my choices above. I'm having trouble deciding between the two. I've a mac, which makes me lean towards the iPhone 6 Plus, but is it worth it for the extra €100 ish?
I'm considering... Read more →
I know these come up somewhat regularly, but they're a lot of fun. I like exploring new apps and games, and since App store aggregation and suggestions are pretty awful this is a good way to get recommendations.
#Homescreen: Yet another product from the Betaworks teams. It's a dead simple, and probably boring to most, concept of a homescreen sharing service. But, like this thread it serves as a discovery mechanism for different apps and services.... Read more →
I usually click on the reply link when someone replies to my comment which (if i'm lucky as this feature is shaky as best) should take me to my comment. Today when i clicked on this reply link, i get to this link and it asks me for username/password:
I tried the login/password i use on engadget but no luck. I never had to do this before so i'm not sure if this is suppose to happen?
Its pretty... Read more →
Unfortunately for a while there wasn't a really compelling device out there. Then came the 1+1 which I was really into but didn't want a phablet. Finally the new more powerful moto X came out and I loved it. But I want great battery life and along came the Sony Z3c. I buy my phones outright so the sky is not the limit price wise but the Sony and the MotoX check just about all of the... Read more →
Whichever mobile operating system you consider your favorite flavor, there’s bound to be things about it that are missing or frustrate you.
Hey, that’s one of the fun things about watching Apple and Google keynotes, right? “What will they add this year that has been missing or someone else has been doing better?”
Anyway, what is a feature that you can’t believe your favorite operating system still doesn’t have?
Over in the comment section, I had an interesting discussion on what constitutes a "full" operating system. Basically, it was about whether or not you can consider something like Android or iOS to be a "real" operating system (whatever that means). To me, this seems like such a bizarre distinction.
Our conversation went something like this:
Commenter: I like my tablets to have a full OS.
Me: What exactly is a "full OS"?
Commenter: Not iOS or Android
Me: Seriously, what... Read more →
Today the iPad user guide for iOS 8.1 leaked, showing images and revealing the names of the newest additions to the iPad family: the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3. Historically Apple has been pretty good about keeping things under wraps until their big press events, so a leak coming directly from an official source... Read more →
Now that HealthKit is live on iOS 8, there’s been a ton of app updates that enable support for Apple’s new service. In fact, it seems like health apps are all the rage right now, and even Google is jumping into the game with its Google Fit API [ https://developers.google.com/fit/ ].
Long before HeathKit and this push toward centralized health and fitness data, there’s always been a number of fitness apps available in both the App Store and Google Play. What are... Read more →
I was thinking to switch to Android. More freedom, bigger screen amd more possibilities attract me. To be honest, reading stuff about customization or Tasker or AirDroid for example seems pretty amazing (or just downloading directly on the phone, having a real file managemenbt system). However, customization and freedom are fun for a time but knowing myself,I could be bored with it in a few months/weeks. After... Read more →
For those of you lucky enough to have one should be expecting the new Android L upadate in the near future when Google will official release it for their Nexus devices. OnePlus announced on their forums that they will be updating OnePlus One to the... Read more →
