Apple update 7.1.1 Out Now

23rd Apr, 2014 | Comments Off

What can we expect from Apple's latest update?

Apple has officially released its latest update for its iOS devices, and should be available to download across the UK this week.

The update comes after Apple made its 7.1 update available earlier on this year, offering up a number of changes to freshen up iPhones and iPads alike.

This latest software tackles a few issues behind the scenes, with minor bug fixes and TouchID fingerprint recognition improvements the main port of call.

The update offers no new design or feature changes to iOS users, but should help the general responsiveness of hardware running the latest version of Apple’s software.

If you haven’t already been prompted to download the update, you can go to your settings panel on your iPhone or iPad and check for an update manually.

The next major update for iOS is most likely going to coincide with the release of the iPhone 6 later on this year, with a series of minor updates expected to keep Apple devices going until then.

No release date has been set for the iPhone 6 yet, but it’s expected to make an appearance in September, with Apple possibly producing two handsets.

Amazon Phone Pictures Leaked

17th Apr, 2014 | Comments Off

Is this the Amazon Smartphone we've been waiting for?

Pictures of the fabled Amazon phone have been leaked this week, amidst rumours of a ‘glasses-free’ 3D feature being included.

The feature, which requires five front facing cameras, gives the user a 3D effect on the display of their handset without forcing them into wearing any sort of lenses or glasses.

The leaked pictures also show a series of different angles of the handset, which could be revealed as early as June.

It’s expected that Amazon will only have a few 3D features working by that time, but it should be more than enough to tempt plenty of consumers into investing.

Will the Amazon Phone prove successful?

A couple of specs were also leaked along with these pictures, mentioning that the Amazon handset would feature 2GB RAM and a 4.7” HD display.

It’s also widely believed that Android’s Google Play Store will be replaced by the Kindle Store which is seen on Amazon’s famous e-readers.

Rumours have also begun to surface about a possible FireOS, which Amazon will be running on the device as a modified version of Android.

Neither a name nor a price tag has made its way onto the web just yet, but it certainly isn’t expected to be that cheap if it does sport this brand new 3D feature.

Don’t fancy waiting for a new phone? Why not take a look at our Samsung Galaxy S5 deals then instead?

Blurry M8 Ace Image Hits Twitter

9th Apr, 2014 | Comments Off

What is the HTC M8 Ace?

We’ve only had the HTC One M8 for a matter of weeks, and already we’re beginning to see and hear rumours about possible follow-up smartphones making headlines.

@evleaks, the notorious Twitter leaker has added fuel to the fire, posting a blurry picture of what is reportedly the HTC M8 Ace.

Rumours suggest that the Ace will be a cheaper version of the recently released M8 flagship handset, but more details are extremely thin on the ground.

The design of the handset looks slightly different to the M8, and comes in red, a colour which the M8 doesn’t sport for now.

Unfortunately we haven’t had access to a picture of the back of the handset, meaning discussion about the possibility of a dual camera being absent from the handset is rife at the moment.

Speculation would suggest that losing the double set of lenses would cut the price of the handset down to a more wallet-friendly level, but would also take away a key selling point.

Until we’re given a better look at the handset, it’s unlikely that we’ll be able to make any real assumptions, other than the fact that it will be red, and will be some sort of variant of the M8 flagship.

Of course if you fancy taking a look at all of our HTC deals, you can check them out here!

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini specs leaked

2nd Apr, 2014 | Comments Off

Can we expect the S5 Mini in the near future?

Word is spreading of a miniature version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 hitting the UK market at some point this summer, and as if from magic, a set of specs have made their way onto the net this week.

Samsung is still to officially release its flagship Galaxy S5 model, which is slated for an April 11th release, but talk of the S5 Mini still doesn’t come as much of a shock.

Previously, the S4 Mini came out several months after the former flagship chart topping handset, but disappointed with its specs, something Samsung may have rectified with the S5 Mini.

If we’re to believe the leaked set of specs, we’ll be seeing a 4.5” Super AMOLED 720p display, with a quad-core CPU and Snapdragon 400 chipset.

If you’re after the camera specs, then you shouldn’t be too disappointed with an 8 megapixel main snapper, supported by a 2 megapixel front facing effort.

1.5GB RAM is expected with 16GB of internal built-in memory alongside, with a MicroSD card slot making for an expandable memory.

Finally, Android 4.4.2 KitKat will come included with the handset, rather than making users wait to download the latest software.

There’s still no word on its protective capabilities, but it would definitely be a shame to see Samsung pull out of the dust and water resistant theme now.

Of course all of these rumours haven’t been completely backed up just yet, so take a healthy pinch of salt with all of this until Samsung gives us word on the S5 Mini.

But, if you’d prefer to hear more about the Samsung Galaxy S5 flagship handset, you can check it out here!

Google Reveal Android Wear

19th Mar, 2014 | Comments Off

What is Android Wear?Google is the next big smartphone manufacturer to jump into the wearables market, developing an operating system called Android Wear designed for smartwatches.

The software is built to work with the upcoming Motorola smartwatch which is set to be released later on this year.

The software sports some pretty amazing features including voice commands for texting and Google searches, as well as being able to control different devices around the home, like a garage door for example.

Google accompanied the information with a short teaser video displaying all of the features that the software will boast.

This comes after Samsung revealed its Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Fit smartwatches at MWC this February, in Barcelona.

But this latest smartwatch is sure to take centre stage when it gets released later on this year, offering far more features compared to other pieces of wearable tech we’ve seen so far.

It’s unknown if we will require a certain smartphone to link to the smartwatch, but it’s thought that the watch will work independently as well, not requiring a linked device to work.

We’re still waiting on an official release date for the smartwatch and software, but it is expected to make an appearance on UK shelves this summer if all goes to plan.

What are your thoughts on this latest piece of wearable technology? Would you consider getting it? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
