We are very close to the public release of Android L – or at least, we are pretty darn sure we are – but strangely we still don’t have confirmation from Google as to what it will be called. We have heard multiple whispers from so-called “sources”, ranging from Android Lemon Meringue Pie, to Android Lion.

Now we get some concrete evidence that we can expect it to be called either Android Lollipop or Android Layer Cake (yeah, we know). (more…)

Gear-S

The smartwatch market is still in its infancy and still many questions remain about why we would actually want to use it on a regular basis. One of the arguments put forth by manufacturers is that it can completely replace your smartphone, and wouldn’t need to be tethered to one.

Samsung believe there is a market for such a device and has already launched the Gear S (pictured above), a 3G connected smartwatch that can make phone calls and it brings basically all other smartphone functionality you would need (i.e. email, maps, etc). (more…)

project-ara-9A month ago we reported that Project Ara is becoming more and more of a reality. Throughout 2014 we have also seen different functions and features of Project Ara come to light. In April this year the Model Developers Kit revealed that the phone’ battery will be hot swappable, enabling the user to replace it without switching off the device. What is even more incredible is that this hot swappable feature will extend beyond only the battery component. (more…)

Most people around the world still haven’t quite understood why companies are pushing the curved display as the next big thing. To be honest, we can’t see that much benefit either, but it is the latest trend to hit display technology and is likely to stay (for now, at least).

3D displays were all the rage a couple of years ago as well, but it has fizzled into little more than a memory. Samsung believes “the curve changes everything” about watching TV, and now they are making the same claim about computer monitors. (more…)

Apple’s intense iPhone testing centre revealed in light of ‘Bendgate’

iPhone testing

With every new phone released there is a whole lot of praise, but it is almost always accompanied by a whole lot of scandal. And for Apple and their new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the past week was rather rough when it comes to scandal.

Besides the fact that iOS 8 and it’s first update, 8.0.1, caused some serious problems for certain users, Apple had to deal with yet another scandal that rocked the pristine world in Apple-land – the so-called ‘Bendgate’ scandal.

If you have been following any tyoe of tech news as of late, you would of most certainly have heard of Bendgate – the alleged report that some iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices bends when in users’ pockets. Naturally, this is not  good look for Apple.

A mere 20 days after the iPhone 6 and it’s bigger brother the 6 Plus was released, people began reporting that the phone literally bends in their pockets. How much of this is true (or how many devices it has affected) is still unknown, but enough people made a hoo-ha about the bending scandal for it to attract a lot of media attention. And it also caught the attention of Apple.

In light of ‘Bendgate’ Apple did something that they rarely do. They let a reported from The Verge into their enclosed iPhone testing centre, to show us just how much new iPhones have to endure before they can be labeled consumer ready. (more…)
