A new day, a new Samsung smartphone rumored that makes little to no sense. Even less sense than the non-microSD-capable, low-power Galaxy S6 Active. This one’s allegedly called Galaxy S5 Neo and will likely carry on a dubious tradition of watered-down versions of last year flagships. Remember the Galaxy S3 Neo and Note 3 Neo?

Earlier this week, Apple sent out invites for the unveiling of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus on September 7th (i.e. next week).

And thankfully, after (in my opinion) the relatively lacklustre 6s models, the iPhone 7 is a real return to form for Apple, with genuine user benefits in terms of speakers, imaging, durability and battery life. The iPhone 7 Plus goes even further, but that’s a phone for another review, another day. This is my Apple iPhone 7... Read more »

The company says that removing the headphone jack has allowed it to increase the battery capacity and add a larger camera module on the new iPhones. A teardown of the new iPhones has now revealed that Apple has put a “barometric vent” where the 3.5mm headphone jack used to reside previously. From outside,... Read more »
