How much is your phone is worth?

Will the iPhone 6s be announced on the 9th of September?

Considering that the latest iPhone is generally announced in early September and then goes on sale nearer the end of the month rumours that the iPhone 6sreveal will be happening on the 9th of September sound very reasonable. iPhone launches are usually on a Tuesday and the 9th is a Wednesday which could mean that the information isn’t entirely accurate but it’s claimed Apple are renting the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco from September 4th to September 13th.

Is this HTC’s next flagship?

For the last few years HTC have launched their new flagship device around the end of the first quarter of the year but after very disappointing sales of the One M9 it appears they may be looking to take another stab at it with a late-2015 flagship phone looking likely. Leaked pictures claim that the A9 (codenamed Aero) will feature a brand new design, replacing the look which has changed little since the M7.

Galaxy Note 5 announced – but not for the UK!

When you think of phablets Samsung’s line of Galaxy Note devices are one of the first things that springs to mind. Not only do Galaxy Note devices offer a much larger screen than your average phone but the inclusion of a stylus gives them something extra that most phones don’t have. The Galaxy Note 4 was well liked and the Galaxy Note 5 looks like an improvement but strangely it isn’t coming to the UK according to Samsung!

Windows 10 now available

New releases of Microsoft Windows can be very hit and miss. Some versions are immediately loved such as Windows 7, some are just awful such as Windows ME and some divide opinion such as Windows 8. While many were put off upgrading to Windows 8 because of the new interface Windows 10 combines elements of Windows 7 and Windows 8 in an attempt to please fans of both, The new OS is available for laptops, desktops, tablets and smartphones out of the box which sets it apart from most other operating systems. The upgrade is free to anyone with Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows Phone 8.1 and just about anyone using Windows 7 or 8.1 should meet the system requirements to install Windows 10.

OnePlus 2 – Flagship quality without the price

Last year the OnePlus One surprised just about everyone by offering an experience comparable to a high-end flagship device at a far lower cost than established manufacturers are offering. The OnePlus One wasn’t perfect but there was plenty to like about it and the price made any issues pretty easy to forgive. The OnePlus 2 doesn’t immediately seem like a huge upgrade but OnePlus have made a number of improvements while still keeping the price low.

Modders get Half-Life running on an Android Smartwatch

The idea of gaming on your watch isn’t a new one. Some low-cost kids watches have come equipped with simple games for years and developers have been experimenting with gaming on smartwatches from day one. Doom has long been the game that gets just about everywhere, even ATMs, but it’s such an old game that it’s not particularly impressive everytime somebody gets it running on an unexpected piece of hardware. The fact that modders have managed to get Half-Life running on an Android Wear device is very impressive however and although it’s never going to be very playable on such a tiny screen it demonstrates the sort of thing these devices are capable of.

New fingerprint sensor tech could mean a button-free iPhone

It was reported in June that Apple were working towards producing an iPhone without the iconic home button. Currently the home button plays host to the popular Touch ID fingerprint sensor and finding a suitable alternative location seemed to be the potential headache to removing the only button on the front of the device. Security technology firm Sonavation have announced new technology which allows for the embedding of a fingerprint sensor directly into a touchscreen which would massively simplify the task for Apple and any other manufacturers who plan to go down this route.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Spotted

After years of steady improvement this year Samsung really got things right with the Galaxy S6, which all things considered could well be the best phone on the market right now. The combination of performance, appearance and build quality make it very difficult to criticise the S6 and the strong sales performance came as no surprise. What was a little more surprising was how popular the Galaxy S6 Edge has been. After rumours of an August launch the first pictures of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus seem to have appeared.

UK High Court ruling means WhatsApp and Snapchat are safe

You’ve probably noticed a huge amount of discussion about government plans to ban encrypted messaging across the internet using apps such as WhatsApp and Snapchat. Many have been worried the change in the law would see an end to many of the most popular ways of keeping in touch and possibly send us back to the days of relying on SMS. The supposed plans didn’t go down well as not many people are too keen on the Government spying on them. The UK High Court has now ruled that parts of the new surveillance plans are unlawful, putting an end to any plans to ban WhatsApp, Snapchat and other apps.

Galaxy A8 is Samsung’s thinnest phone

While the Samsung Galaxy A8 has so far only received a quiet Chinese launch there’s a good chance it’ll make it to Europe in the coming months and if it does anyone who wants a phone with many of the benefits of the Galaxy S6 but would rather pay a little less will need to keep an eye on this phone. On paper this is a very capable device but it can’t quite compete with the most powerful phones on the market but in terms of design and features it’s very nearly on par with the best.
