Bending iPhone 6?

With the release of the brand new iPhone 6 there have been rumours that state they bend with ease and with a simple Google search you can find many videos of the iPhone 6 being bent. However are these reports true? Lets take a lot.

Reports showed that it takes:

  • 90lbs of force to disfigure the iPhone6+
  • 70lbs of force to disfigure the iPhone6 and HTC One M8

In comparison it takes 80 pounds of force to snap 4 wood pencils. So while not the best structurally designed phone, it takes considerable force to bend them and the claims seem to be overblown.

However if you do have bending problems with your iPhone 6/iPhone 6+ then bring it into the store and we can straighten it out for you.

The new PS4

The new PS4 is set to be released at £349 later on this year around Christmas time, it will be cheaper than it’s rival XBOX 1. The XBOX 1 is priced at £429. The PS4 should get high sale ratings, it should sell well as a Christmas present.

The element that may annoy users is the fact that the console isn’t backward compatible, you won’t be able to play all of your old PS2 and PS3 games to work on this, so it depends, if you haven’t got any games from any previous Playstation consoles then it won’t be a problem for you. Another way that you can play your old Playstation games through the PS4 would be via an online stream. 140 games are currently in development for the PS4. 100 of which will be released this year.

The Sony PS4 has been criticised for it’s camera not being as good as the XBOX one.

For the time being there is only one PS4 being released compared to the PS3 when there were two GB sizes available depending on what you needed the console for. The PS3 has a move controller feature with a camera, many good games are compatible with this feature such as Harry Potter and Just Dance so be expected for an even better camera with the new gaming system.

Hardcore gamers will pay anything to snatch  up the latest consoles and will pre-order the console before it’s release date. If people wait a few months then the price will increasingly drop.

The best element of all is that there is no DRM restrictions which means you don’t have to be online to be able to play the games, compared to the XBOX where it is predominantly online gaming, you will be lost without an internet connection.

The new PS4 dual shock wireless controller looks pretty impressive, it includes a mic with jack, and a share button next to the triggers which enables users to share content with their friends; a similar concept to the XBOX. The controller looks sleeker and better than ever! You will be impressed!

It will be possible for players to take control of other peoples games- like Remote Assistance on a PC.

There are also many well- known franchise title games which will be released such as Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy ( perfect if you are an RPG geek like myself) !!

Samsung VS Apple

This is an up and coming discussion between the two rival companies- do you go for Samsung or Apple- that is the ultimate question! They are both competing to be in the top spot.

 

Apple iphone 5 VS Samsung S4.

Apple iphone 5: £199

Samsung S4: £400

 

There is definitely a big difference in price so we have to weigh up the pros and cons

Samsung are ahead of their game and surprisingly are making more money than Apple.

 

Samsung:

 

Takes photos with a front and back screen

4G Technology will be added on later this year

Can connect without a wifi signal

Talk time: 17 hours

 

Apple:

 

Has a 4′ retina display

Camera is 8 megapixels

 Most people seem to prefer Samsung over Apple. They have all of the same apps that Apple do: some people do find Apple more user friendly though, so it depends what you want to use your phone for.

The majority of people that come into our shop come in with iPhone trouble/ cracked screens issues, they are much more common than with Samsung phones.

 

My personal favourite is now the Samsung phone as opposed to the iPhone. The Samsung phone looks ultra fast and sleek- a smartphone more like a tablet and phone in one. My previous phones have been Apple but I think it is time to convert.
