If you belong to the former category or wouldn’t mind trying a new piece of tech then this can get you excited – T-Mobile announced that they would be carrying the Gear S SIM-enabled smartwatch.
AT&T and Sprint has just announced their pricing and availability details. AT&T will offer you the Samsung Gear S for $199.99 with a two-year contract. AT&T’s suggests add the Gear S to a Mobile Share plan for $10 per month.
Sprint’s take on the pricing is similar to T-Mobile’s – the Samsung Gear S will cost you $0 upfront on Sprint plus 24 payments of $16 (a total of $384). The best thing you can do on Sprint is also to add the Gear S on a Family Share Plan for $10 per month.

A Champagne gold color option of the Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch was briefly available on a pre-order on Amazon but it seems the product pages were pulled.
The smartwatch was up with two strap sizes – 18mm (shown below) and a 23mm one, both matching the color and both metal. Motorola started shipping Moto 360s to owners in two color options – silver and black – and with only leather watchstraps, leaving the metal ones for the fall.
The metal bands themselves will be offered for $80 per band. The 23mm one was made available on Amazon for a brief period before it got pulled away – for $299 and the shipping period was for 2 to 3 months later. We do know that Gold Moto 360s are on their way. Let’s wait till we get it from Motorola themselves.
Samsung has been in the bad books of the press and the customers over their design and material choices. Add to that the fact that Samsung is facing losses recently translates to what we believe is a new direction for the company.
Samsung has actively started using premium materials in the build of their recent devices like the Galaxy Alpha and the Galaxy Note 4. Add to that list two new entrants from Samsung which are interesting when you take a closer look. The two Samsung Galaxy Devices – A5 and A3 are targeted at people who are hooked on to social media and selfies primarily.
Despite housing a 5-inch display, the A5 is just 6.7mm (0.26 inches) thick, enough to best the iPhone 6. The A3 matches Apple’s latest flagship at 6.9mm (0.27 inches), though it’s got a smaller 4.5-inch qHD screen.
Both phones are powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz processor; the A5’s got 2GB of RAM inside, but the A3’s got half that. The A5 also wins out with a slightly better 13-megapixel camera compared to the 8-megapixel rear camera on the A3. Both phones have a plethora of selfie modes and Samsung’s even built in a mode that can automatically churn out GIFs. The Galaxy A5 and A3 are headed to China next month, but there’s no word yet on pricing, nor do we know when — or if — they’ll be coming stateside.
LG has decided to take a stand on this : According to LG’s German arm, the G3 is set to start getting Lollipop sometime this quarter – that is, before the year’s out. That gives LG a two month window in which to start making the G3′s Android update available.
However, users of the LG G2 will be receiving this update a few months, atleast 4 – 5 months later. LG Germany has shared this information on their facebook page. Indeed social media is a great place to find updates about your devices. We shall keep you updated !
The Motorola Droid Turbo is powered by a Snapdragon 805 chipset with a 2.7GHz quad-core Krait 450 CPU, 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 420 GPU. The battery is 3,900mAh and Motorola promises it can last for 48 hours of mixed usage. The interesting part is the build of the phone which is apparently made of either of ballistic nylon or metalized glass fiber reinforced with DuPont kevlar. The display is covered with a protective layer of Gorilla Glass 3.
The camera on the back of the device is also a whopping 21MP with 4K recording. The 64GB Black Ballistic Nylon model will also be available for $249.99 with new two year activation or $27 per month on Verizon Edge.
Although the chart is nothing close to impressive it indeed feels good to know, if you happen to own one of these devices that Asus has got you covered. Apparently all Asus Zenfones – Zenfone 4, Zenfone 4 A450CG, Zenfone 5, Zenfone 5 LTE, and the Zenfone 6 will be getting Android 5.0 Lollipop in April next year. The versatile PadFone S will be also getting the sweet Lollipop treatment by April 2015, while the PadFone Infinity 2 update is scheduled for June, 2015.
Do you own a Zenfone? How excited are you about this update?
There is one gripe every iPhone user would have which would make them consider an Android phone, and that was being bigger screens and higher resolution displays. With the new iPhone 6 Plus Apple has done the much unexpected to retain users who were migrating and willing to make do with Android just to have a big screen phone.
So now that the playing field has been pretty much leveled, which of these phones is the one you should get? Let’s find out :
Size and Build :
When it comes to sheer dimensions, the Note was and continues the leader and the device to beat. The original Note lead to experts coining the term “phablet” and hence the Note 4 is still huge. Although it has shed much of the useless bezel now and isnt difficult to hold.
The iPhone 6 Plus is very sleek and comes just shy of 7.1mm in thickness which is pretty thin and that said you’ll definitely need a case to protect it since people have found the rounded edges to be much slippery. The Note 4 on the other hand flaunts chamfered metal edges on all sides.
The iPhone 6 Plus is much of a tablet. This is the first 1080p iPhone, and it should look noticeably sharper than the 750p iPhone 6. If you want pixels, though, the Note 4 is the place to go. It has a Quad HD display that packs in 78 percent more pixels than the iPhone 6 Plus does.
The iPhone 6 Plus brings a IPS LCD display which is definitely vibrant but much more accurate. Super AMOLED displays are awesome when it comes to brightness and sunlight visiblity. No matter which way you go you’ll have a bleeding edge screen.
Fingerprint Sensor :
Both phones tick the boxes here but Apple’s implementation is much better and sophisticated. The sensor on the Note 4 is improved but still behaves cranky and wants the user to swipe at exactly one speed.
The Note 4 has two versions : one with the Snapdragon 805 which has 4 cores to fire the device, all clocked at 2.7GHz. The second version has the octa-core Exynos. The Apple A8 smashes through benchmarks and runs the device plenty smooth.
Both the iPhone 6 Plus and the Note 4 are excellent phones, choice is between Android and iOS really and weather or not you need the crazy multitasking the Note 4 brings. Both have off contract prices of around $700-$800. Let us know which is your preferred device!
