Apple might not be unveiling its iPhone 6 until September. But that hasn’t stopped clone manufacturers using leaked schematics for the handset to produce two new knock–offs of the forthcoming smartphone.
There’s nothing quite as panic-inducing as a red battery symbol. You’re out frolicking, there’s pictures to take, people to text, news to read. But no. Not for you. You’ve got to spend the rest of the evening doing all you can to squeeze out every last drop of battery life possible.
The iPhone 5S and 5C offer up to 10 hours of usage with iOS 7, but if your device isn’t coming anywhere near that figure, your settings could be the culprit.
We’ve rounded up 18 tweaks you can make to make the most of your iPhone battery. Every little bit goes a long way…
The LG Watch is one of the first smartwatches, along with the Samsung Gear Live and Moto 360, to run on Google’s new Android Wear operating system. It’s also the Korean company’s third attempt at making a watch with smartphone functionality.
This time it’s thinking about the G Watch as a companion for your phone instead of a standalone device like the LG GD910 was when it launched back in 2009. At £159, it’s one of the cheapest available but a combination of hardware issues and need to iron out some of the software bugs means it’s not the complete Android Wear smartwatch package yet.
The long work week may be drawing to a close, but Sony smartphone fans have a little something extra to get excited about in the months ahead thanks to images of a next-gen Xperia handset now making the rounds.
Chinese message board Weibo lit up like a Christmas tree earlier today with a handful of leaked photos purporting to be Sony’s Xperia Z3, the next flagship Android smartphone from the Japanese electronics giant.
The images quite clearly depicts the Chinese variant of a handset bearing the model number L55t, and according to a shot displaying the detailed settings menu, also running the latest version of Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
Late last month, a front panel leaked out which matches the newly posted images, and the aforementioned model number also checks out considering the current Xperia Z2 bears the model number L50t.
It’s the natural order of things: NVIDIA releases a new line of mobile GPUs and suddenly the market is flooded with new gaming laptops. It is spring, after all. Most notebooks in the category follow a standard form, but every now and then someone breaks the oversized, hulking mold. This year, it’s MSI. Until now, the company’s lightweight series consisted of one machine, the GS70 Stealth. It was praised for being thin, light and having a more premium feel than most gaming laptops, but its 17-inch screen still made it unwieldy. Enter the GS60 Ghost: everything you loved about the Stealth, but with a 15-inch display and — wouldn’t you know it — NVIDIA’s new GeForce GTX 800M series GPU. Let’s see how it stacks up.
A funny thing happened after the Mogo Pro game controller showed up on my doorstep about a month ago: I stopped using all my tablets. Their batteries ran out, and I didn’t bother taking them with me on trips. Suddenly, my HTC One, strapped onto the Moga Pro, was the only entertainment I needed. The tablets I’d relied on before had become redundant.
The Moga Pro is a $50 game controller with a clip that folds out from the middle and clasps onto nearly any Android phone. Essentially, it turns the phone into a portable gaming system.
But for what games? These days, there’s a surprisingly decent amount of controller-supported games in the Google Play Store, from grindy RPGs like Eternity Warriors to racing games like Riptide GP to twin-stick shooters like Expendables: Rearmed. If you’re into classic games–and have no moral qualms about emulators–Moga Pro can become a portable NES, Genesis, Playstation or Nintendo 64 as well.
