September has been a hot month for smartphone releases, with most tier-1 companies releasing at least one new handset during the month. Most brands have laid their blueprint for the next six months with new flagships, mid-range, and budget devices. The major platforms have plenty of firepower for the all-important holiday season, and what about the up and comers bubbling under?
You watched Apple's iPhone 6 launch event, you are a long time iPhone fan, and you thought that you would like to replace your old iPhone for the latest and greatest. As the clock strikes midnight tonight you will be able to pre-order the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and have it on September 18th. However, how do you ensure that you are doing everything right when trading in your old iPhone, and keeping your data safe?
Apple launched the iPhone 6 yesterday in what was a very successful and warmly received media event for the company. The device is very good, easily the best Apple has made so far and has plenty going for it in almost every regard. However, that does not mean there are no problems and after getting to know the iPhone 6 a little better we can offer a clearer impression.
As the dust settles at what was a busy IFA event in Berlin, we can take a look back and see what were the best products launched during last week. This year the choice was a little harder as smartwatches have made their presence felt, a new category no, but certainly this is the first time they have made a big splash at IFA. Although, we were surprised in the office how little wearable products featured in our discussion.
Is Blackberry finished or is it turning around? Is LG in love with its G3 flagship a little too much? And how will the Nexus 6 be affordable?
With IFA just around the corner, the smartphone and tablet arena is heating up as rumours, leaks, official information and more stream out. With a week until the Berlin based trade show, expect the Daily Burn to be on fire with all the latest news and gossip from this world of mobile.
Sony suffered a catastrophic leak last week when its upcoming Xperia Z3 smartphone flagship was entirely laid bare by a regulatory body. The specs, dimensions, and design of the device were completely exposed, leaving the company with an IFA launch event that would now be a little de ja vu like. However, perhaps the Japanese company has a few more surprises up its sleeve, so here?s the IFA rumour roundup for Sony.
The mobile scene was hardly burning today, but it was simmering through what we tend to call a slow news day. However, the Daily Burn was keeping a close eye on things and is now here to deliver you the day?s news in easy to digest chunks.
Apple has always done a decent job of defying the ethos that says more RAM and higher numbered specs are better. For example, the iPad Air has just 1GB of RAM, while even basic Android slates pack at least 2GB. However, you would not notice a difference between the performance on the Air or on a high end Android tablet, such is the solid performance of Apple's product.
It has been another blazing day of mobile news that was largely dominated by HTC and its One M8 flagship. Just in case you missed the lowdown throughout the day, the Daily Burn is here.
