Samsung Announces Note 8 and Galaxy S8 with Special Upgrade Offer

November 10th, 2016

samsung noteWith the exploding Note 7, many people thought Samsung was on a slippery slope with its reputation. The next thing we know, they recall 2.8 million of their washing machines. That’s not good.

Samsung is not having a good 2016, but the question is, will they recover in 2017?

Samsung seems positive about it. They do not (as of this writing) have any plans on letting go of their Note series. They just announced they will have a Note 8 and Galaxy S8 in 2017. It’s likely because they have already started production on it, so why back track now?

What’s great about this – and makes those of us who are Samsung lovers – is they plan on offering special upgrades to the flagships.

The announcement was delivered in Korean, but from translation, it seems as though people who purchased the Note 7 will be able to get the Note 8 with payment installments and at a reduced cost.

Since Samsung Note 8 users had to turn in their devices, this possible upgrade special is only for those who to go with the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge after returning their unit.

Don’t Get Your Hopes Up

The only snag in this is that this special may not be making it internationally. This was only revealed in South Korea. The expiration date is November 30, 2016. If the offer does go internationally, the United States will likely hear about it in December.

Do Tempered Glass Screen Protectors Work Better than Plastic?

November 3rd, 2016

screen protectorIf you’re in the market for a screen protectors, it’s likely you’ve seen two types: tempered glass and plastic.

The tempered glass screen protectors is basically extra durable glass for your glass screen. The plastic screen protector is well, plastic.

As you’re deciding which one to drop your hard earned money on, consider the pros and cons of each.

  • Plastic screen protectors are cheaper than tempered glass ones.
  • Tempered glass screen protectors are thicker than plastic ones, which provide more protection.
  • Plastic ones scratch much easier.
  • Tempered glass feel most like the original screen, while fingers may not glide as smoothly over plastic protectors.
  • Plastic screen protectors are much less noticeable. Tempered glass ones are thicker, so they bulge out a little.
  • It can be harder to install a plastic protector without having bubbles in it.

Glass phone screens will become scratched if you’re not careful. Many people deal with the scratches, but when the screen cracks, they risk cutting themselves. Tempered glass screen protectors and the plastic ones can take on some of the impact when a phone is dropped, which can mean the difference between cracking or not cracking your phone.

When it comes down to it, the user’s preferences matters most. You won’t ever know what you will like best, unless you try it. Try the plastic one first, and if it doesn’t impress you, try the more expensive tempered glass. You’ll like know right away which one you will enjoy the most.

Do You Really Need One?

Some people wonder if they really need one. The answer is….it depends. If you don’t have a problem getting your phone screen repaired with services such as those offered by iResQ, you should probably get a screen protector. It may not guarantee your screen won’t get cracked, but at least, it will protect a little.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Touch Disease

October 6th, 2016

iphone touch diseaseApple has recently announced a touchscreen issue with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This issue is being referred to as “Touch Disease.”

When a device has touch disease, it becomes unresponsive to touch. For instance, when you go to tap on your favorite app, it will not open. No matter what you do, it will not respond to your touch.

This issue has been brought up to Apple many times, but they are hesitant to admit to the problem. Even after having a class-action lawsuit brought against them, they are not coming forward with a public acknowledgement for the faulty screens.

The touch disease issue is not one that only a couple people have experience. It’s already accounted for as much as 11 percent of Apple store repairs. This is a rate already higher than other types of repairs – yes, even cracked screens.

 How to Detect the Problem

Touch disease often starts with a gray bar across the screen. After a short time, users report the screen become unresponsive to touch. Experts believe it may have something to do with the logic board on the device. When the device is taken out of the pocket, dropped, or slightly bent in some other way, the logic board malfunctions.

Contact Apple immediately if you believe you are experiencing “touch disease.” They will fix it or replace depending on whether they are able to return it to original functioning.

iPhone People Aren’t as Humble, Honest and Kind When Compared to Android Users

September 9th, 2016

smartphone-157082_1280We don’t believe this, but that’s what research is telling us.

The choice of phone you use may be indicative of your personality more than you think. Scientists recently found that Android users are much more humble, kinder and honest than their rivals – iPhone users.

In the study, people in two groups (iPhone users and Android users) completed a questionnaire. Each question related to their personality. iPhone users most often chose responses  that weren’t as kind, humble and honest as Android users did.

In addition to the personality questionnaire, the research team analyzed the apps each user downloaded and used. There was a clear discrepancy between what iPhone users downloaded and what Android users did.

Women Love iPhone

What’s interesting is that you would think more women who fall under the humble, kind, and honest category, but actually, they were more likely to own an Apple. Men are more like to have Android phones, and well, they fell into the group with people who are more humble, kind and honest.

Socially Outgoing

In addition to these personality traits, it seems as though iPhone users are more extroverted as well. I guess that does make sense, since iPhone users do tend to talk a big game about their choice in smartphone.

What Does Your Phone Say About You?

It’s obvious our phones are a big part of us, and we’re going to make decisions based on our likes and dislikes with each type of phone. What do you believe is true of your smartphone as it relates to your personality? It is something interesting to consider, isn’t it?
