And following a signed deal with a Taiwan semiconductor alternative to Samsung, the iOSphere is already anticipating the A8 microprocessor in 2014, even though there’s still no sign of the A7.You read it here second. __________ “The rear surface of the iPhone and similar devices has long been wasted space, necessary simply to complete the housing but offering no features beyond the rear camera lens.

On Tuesday, Apple unveiled the latest additions to its iPhone family, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. They're the largest iPhones ever, and according to Apple, they're "better in every way" than its last generation of smartphones. Both of these high-end devices are very similar, but there are five notable differences between them that potential iPhone 6 buyers should consider before making a purchase. 1) iPhone 6 v. iPhone 6 Plus: Size and WeightThe most obvious difference between the two new iPhones is size.

Four years ago, Samsung created quite a stir with its original Galaxy Note, a supersized smartphone that many people found too big, but many others loved as a combo smartphone and tablet, giving rise to the "phablet" moniker. This fall, Apple jumped into the phablet fray with the iPhone 6 Plus as Samsung came out with its fourth iteration of the Note.Both are strong contenders, though they differ in where they shine. On the surface, they look pretty much the same, with nearly identical case sizes. The iPhone 6 Plus is a bit thinner (0.28 inch versus 0.33 inch) and a tad lighter (6.1 ounces versus 6.2 ounces), but the Note 4 has a larger screen (5.7 inches versus 5.5). But the differences become clear in their details and operations.The scores in this review give the win to the iPhone 6 Plus, since they evaluate the devices as business smartphones, where iOS 8.1 has a decisive edge in terms of applications and security over the Note 4's Android KitKat 4.4.

Apple's new iPhone is bigger and better for business. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 debuted this week alongside an even bigger version, the massive 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus.

Apple's iPhone has long been one of the best business phones on the market, with one major shortcoming: Its pint-size display has always been a bit too small to get real work done. Apple addressed that issue with the iPhone 6, a scaled-up iPhone that finally offers enough screen space for real productivity. Apple did more than give its new smartphone a larger display; the iPhone 6 has been totally redesigned, with a superthin profile and smooth curves in place of the boxy edges on older models. Plus, the iPhone 6 ships with iOS 8, a revamped version of Apple's mobile operating system that adds a slew of new productivity-boosting features for business users. But Apple still has some catching up to do in a few areas. The iPhone 6 has shorter battery life than other flagship smartphones, and iOS 8, which slick and easy to use, still has some annoying limitations. So should business users upgrade to Apple's new flagship phone, or opt for an Android device instead? Display These days, … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone 6 Review: Is It Good for Business?
The big new iPhone 6 Plus could be huge for business users. It's the first iPhone with a screen topping 5 inches, giving you tons of space to work. It also features long battery life, blazing-fast performance and genuinely innovative software features that make the big screen easier to use. And it ships with iOS 8, the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system. But it's not without flaws. The iPhone 6 Plus is a handful, and it's seriously hard to use with one hand. And the screen isn't the only thing that's been supersized — so has the price. But if you can deal with the size, cost and some annoying software limitations, the iPhone 6 Plus might be Apple's most productive smartphone yet. Display The iPhone has always been one of the best business phones around, but the small 4-inch screen of the last few models was just too cramped to really work on. And the standard iPhone 6, which launched alongside the 6 Plus with a 4.7-inch screen, strikes a good middle ground. So has … [Read more...] about iPhone 6 Plus Review: Is it Good for Business?
Samsung's new Galaxy S6 smartphone looks to be the next great business phone, but how does it stack up to the latest iPhone? The S6 — which launches April 10 — sports a couple of key upgrades, like a premium design and a better fingerprint scanner, that bring it more in line with the iPhone 6. On the other hand, Samsung nixed a few features — like expandable storage and a swappable battery — that helped last year's Galaxy S5 stand apart from Apple's phone. So with two devices that look and feel so similar, does one stand out as the better work phone? Design Previously entries in the Galaxy S series have felt solid and durable — the kind of thing that can withstand a few drops and dings. But it's hard to deny that those all-plastic devices felt a bit cheap compared with Apple's metal-cased iPhones. That's why it's nice to see Samsung adopt more premium materials for its latest flagship phone. The Galaxy S6 is sleeker, thinner and better-looking … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6: Which is Better for Business?
