Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs iPhone 4S: Like Shooting Fish In A Barrel

Whenever a new Android flagship phone is unveiled, everyone who has a smartphone starts comparing it to the latest iPhone incarnation. This is intensified when it’s a Samsung, and it’s really bad now, after the legal showdown. The instant that Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 2, it was weighed up against the iPhone 4S. Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs iPhone 4S It’s obvious that the Note 2 is better than the iPhone 4S, especially considering that the 4S came out last October, and the Note 2 will be out in October 2012 and already trumps the reigning Samsung Galaxy S3 in many ways (which by the way also beat the iPhone 4S in our comparison test from earlier last month). A year in tech is like a geological age, don’t forget. The more sensible question is how much better than the iPhone 4S the Note 2 is. Which is a bit daft. No, we need to see the iPhone 5 to really give the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 a run for its money. Until then, all we can do is browbeat the waning iPhone 4S. Cue evil cackle… Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs iPhone 4s: Display, Design and Form Factor The biggest difference between the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the iPhone 4S is the screen size. Apple has maintained the same 3.5” screen since 2007, while Samsung has reached for the stars. Well, diverse screen sizes across its range, anyway. If you’re after a Samsung with a regular screen (and there’s a study that reckons the optimum smartphone screen is between 4 and 4.5”), then go for the Galaxy S3. If you want a mahoosive display, there’s the Note 2, a phablet with a 5.5” screen. The advantages of a big screen are obvious – YouTube, photos, games and all that. However, a big screen is hard to handle with just one hand – or one pocket. Smaller screens are better for all-round experience and portability, but some may find a 3.5” screen too small to really impress. Design is also a personal choice, but both the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the iPhone 4S are quite sexy. The Note 2 is like a super-sized version of the Samsung Galaxy S3, measuring 80.5×151.1x94mm. The iPhone 4S has the same design as the iPhone 4, and measures 115.2×58.6×9.3mm. Resolution-wise, the 3.5” LED backlit IPS iPhone 4S screen has 960x640p and has a density of 330PPI. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has a 5.5” Super AMOLED HD display with 1280x720p and a lower 267PPI density. PPI densities are just one parameter, but the higher the density, the crisper the image. Processor: The year-old iPhone 4S has the 18-month-old Apple A5 SoC (first used in the Apple iPad 2 back in March 2011). That means a dual-core 1GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, a PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU and 512MB of RAM. This doesn’t mean it’s slow, especially as most iPhone apps are optimised, but it can’t compete with Samsung’s new Exynos 4 SoC. As was expected, the Galaxy Note 2 uses an overclocked Exynos 4 quad SoC (the same as in the international Galaxy S3), and this has a 1.6GHz quad-core A9 chip and a Mali 400 MP GPU clocked at 400MHz. Along with its 2GB of RAM, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is the fastest smartphone out there. Camera-wise, the Note 2 and the 4S both have an 8MP primary camera, but there’s nothing like watching your recorded HD videos back on the big, beautiful Note 2 display. Both phones come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB internal storage flavours, but the 4S has no microSD slot, whereas the Note 2 can accept microSD cards with up to 64GB of storage. Furthermore the Galaxy Note 2 will have Jelly Bean out of the box, but this isn’t the only impressive thing about its software. There have been big improvements made to its S-Pen integration, as well as other tweaks around the S-Pen like being able to hover over a folder to see info without switching screens. There’s also improved handwriting capture and quick command functions. There are more S-Pen features to go into, which we’ll do in another update. Conclusion: This wasn’t a fair fight. The Note 2 has the latest version of Android, lightning-fast internals and is making much more of the S-Pen than the Note did. It’s a year ahead of the iPhone 4S in every way. If you don’t mind the size, and you want the best smartphone around, the Samsung Note 2 is the only sensible choice. 。 sex gadget,sex toy,adult toy

Samsung Galaxy S3 Or iPhone 4S: What People Really Think

The Inquirer recently compared the Samsung Galaxy S3 to the iPhone 4S of Apple. They looked at things such as design and build, the performance, the OS and software, camera, battery, amount of storage and connectivity. They then said that the two phones were equally as good as the other and it was tie. They said that the Samsung S3 won over the iPhone 4S in many categories but on the whole the iPhone 4S won over for day to day use. Readers however disagreed and they were inundated with comments about the article and flooded the comments section with what they really thought. Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 4S One reader said that the Samsung Galaxy S3 was in their hand for just one hour and it made the iPhone S4 seem like a heavy brick. Another said that the thanks to the small screen of the iPhone 4S it was easier to make typos. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a superb screen said another, and this makes it perfect for watching movies. Readers also said that the Samsung Galaxy S3 looks sleeker and is a lot more powerful than the iPhone 4S thanks to the processor and the rest of its specs. It seems that all of the individuals who responded to the article are pro-Galaxy S3. Other readers said that they were waiting for the iPhone 5 to be released before passing judgement on which of the devices was the best. When it comes to the readers of the story, one thing for sure is that they think the Samsung Galaxy S3 beats the iPhone 4S, at least 9 out of 10 times. When the iPhone 5 is revealed this of course could all change. 。 wholesale accessories,iphone accessories,ipod accessories,ipad accessories

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs Apple iPhone 5, two top smartphones this season

Two of the best smartphones of this year are about to make their debut very shortly. One of the two, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, the second generation Galaxy Note will be announced shortly at the Samsung’s Mobile Unpacked event. AppleiPhone 5, on the other hand is said to be arriving this September 12, with pre-orders starting from 21st of September. Though Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is coined as a ‘phablet’, it is more of a giant smartphone than a mini tablet. Considering the rivalry between the two mobile biggies, and the time they are releasing the two smartphones, drawing comparison between the Galaxy Note 2 and the iPhone 5 is inevitable. Both the devices will be coming with some cool features, outdoing their predecessors by a considerable margin. There’s no official news from Samsung or Apple on what the upcoming smartphones are going to have, but there are plenty of rumors and speculations about them already. Screen Apple will be upgrading the screen to 4 inches in the upcoming iPhone 5, keeping the ever increasing craze for the big screen phones among the users. Though a 4 inch smartphone can’t be considered big going by the current standards, it is still a considerable upgrade when comes to an iPhone. Galaxy Note 2, on the other hand, is going to have a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED screen. There are even some reports from the noted tech blogs, saying Galaxy Note 2 will have a flexible screen! Camera The rumors, speculations and so called ‘spec leaks’ say Apple iPhone will continue to have an 8 megapixel camera, but will let users take photos in 3D as well. And coming to the Galaxy Note 2, the same but tweaked 8 megapixel camera is most likely to be on the board. But going by the other sources around, there might even be a 13 megapixel camera in the new Galaxy Note 2. Processor We might see an A6 processor in the iPhone 5, which makes it much faster than the one in the iPhone 4S, giving an edge to iPhone 5 to compete with the high-end Android smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is most likely to have a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos processor, with 2 gigs of RAM. Other features Both smartphones are going to have the 4G LTE support. The iPhone 5 is arriving with new features like fingerprint sensor technology, while Samsung improved many of the Galaxy Note features including the S Pen technology. 。 wholesale accessories,iphone accessories,ipad accessories,ipod accessories

iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2: Does Apple Have A Chance?

Two of the hottest devices of 2012 are about to make their debut. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was announced yesterday and is the follow up to the Note, while the iPhone 5 is rumored to be announced on the of 12th September and take the place of the 4S as Apple’s flagship. Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs iPhone 5 The media have been quick to put the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in the new category of the ‘phablet’, a cross between a phone and a tablet. However it does everything that a phone does and so people will compare it with the the top devices of 2012 which at this time look to be the Samsung Galaxy and iPhone 5. Now we already compare it to the Samsung Galaxy S3 yesterday and reached the conclusion that if your pocket could handle the extra size of the Note 2, then it would be a better buy than the S3 as it offered more power and features (S-Pen). Back to the iPhone 5, let’s take a look at how its rumored specs stand up to the official ones of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2: If rumors are true the new iPhone 5 will have a 4 inch display and while this isn’t as big as some of the handsets on the market and nowhere near the display of the Note 2, it is an upgrade for the iPhone. The Note 2 however will come with a Super AMOLED display of 5.5 inches that will beat the iPhone 5 when it comes to watching media, checking emails, playing games and more. Winner: Samsung Galaxy Note 2 The camera on the iPhone 5 should be the same as on previous models, 8 megapixels. The Note 2 also has an 8 megapixel camera that comes with LED flash and plenty of features. Winner: Draw. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be offered in the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions in marble white or titanium grey. It also has a 3,100mAh battery and it supports SD card up to 64GB. The iPhone 5 is also rumored to come in those storage options but have no expandable storage and battery half the size of the Note 2 i.e. 1,440mAh. Winner: Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The S Pen has had a makeover and is more comfortable for holding as it is thicker and longer. This can be used to preview the text in emails and other content without having to open an app, to record actions and even draw notes on the fly. The iPhone 5 isn’t expected to bring anything like the S-Pen or for that fact any novelty hardware that is capable of doing something as unique as this. Winner: Samsung Galaxy Note 2. While this may seem like a one-sided victory, you have to understand that when it comes to Apple products, it isn’t always about the specs but more how the device is put together. If rumors serve true, the iPhone 5 will have NFC and LTE. We’ve been hearing a lot about its Passbook app whose limits have yet to be imagined. Then there are rumors of multi-touch focus which may make the 8MP camera on the iPhone 5 beat out other 8MP camera phones. Apple iOS products have also been known to be more efficient, meaning that we may see the small capacity battery on the iPhone 5 live up to the task. However at this time, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 looks like the winner. With just a few more weeks to go before the iPhone 5 is unveiled, we will soon find out if this sticks. 。 sex gadget,sex toy,adult toy

iPhone 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S3: Galaxy S3 Will Have More Carriers This Fall

The upcoming fall will make purchase decisions hard for consumers. More tablets and capable smartphones will be on the market than ever before, and one of the key launches everybody has their eyes on is the iPhone 5. If you're one of those trying to decide whether to purchase the now-popular Android-running Samsung Galaxy S3 or wait for the Apple iPhone 5, then the decision may come down to carriers for you. To begin with, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is currently sold through AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular. The Galaxy S3 launched to an incredibly high level of demand, which prompted carriers like AT&T and Sprint to delay in-store launches. But once July came around, supply stocks caught up, and all five carriers listed above offered the smartphone for sale. The iPhone 5, on the other hand, won't enjoy such a large launch. There has been no official acknowledgement of the existence of a next-gen iPhone from Apple, but at the moment it's safe to say that At&T, Verizon, and Sprint will be the three carriers selling the iPhone 5 at launch. AT&T and Verizon have both announced vacation blackout dates between September 21-30, signaling a huge product launch is ahead, just around the time the iPhone 5 is expected to be released. Sprint began discounting the iPhone 4S, which may signal that the carrier is keen on getting rid of existing 4S inventories in order to make space for the iPhone 5. Sprint also offered the iPhone 4S at launch along with AT&T and Verizon. T-Mobile has made it clear that they will not not have the iPhone 5 immediately, stating design conflicts with its network. Leaked company memos also show that T-Mobile is specifically telling its employees to sell 'against' the iPhone soon.Keep in mind that unlocked iPhones work on T-Mobile's network, so once an unlocked iPhone 5 comes around, T-Mobile consumers should probably be able to hop on their network with them. U.S. Cellular will likely not be able to get its hands on initial shipments of the iPhone 5 due to the ridiculous amount of demand the bigger three national carriers will face. Apple does also charge a high subsidy on the phone, which could deter smaller carriers from aggressively carrying the iPhone in the beginning. 。 wholesale accessories,ipad accessories,ipod accessories,iphone accessories

iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 2: Buyers choice

Smartphone consumers are increasingly becoming spoilt for choice when it comes to getting a new handset. We have just seen the latest flagship device revealed by Samsung and in the coming weeks Apple is expected to announce their latest version of the iPhone, and when it comes to comparing the iPhone 5 with the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 it is certainly a buyer’s choice.
Samsung has already announced the Galaxy Note 2 with its lovely big 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, and speculation in recent months has hinted that the iPhone 5 will have a taller 4-inch display. There will be smartphone users who will love the screen size of the Note 2, but there will be others who will find it too big and may prefer the size that the next iPhone may offer. The Galaxy Note 2 is powered by a 1.6GHz Exynos quad-core processor with a nice big 3,100 mAh battery pack providing the power, while there has been talk of the iPhone 5 also joining the quad core party when it is released. Some iPhone 4/4S users have complained about the battery life of their device, and previously some leaked patents had suggested that Apple were looking at new battery pack ideas that may arrive in time for the next handset. Perspective owners of the Galaxy Note 2 have the choice of 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB storage options, which can then be expanded by up to another 64GB via a microSD card, while current owners of the Apple iPhone have never enjoyed such an option. Camera wise the Galaxy Note 2 has been treated to an eight megapixel sensor for its main shooter on the back, while on the front there is a 1.9 megapixel unit, while the current iPhone also has an eight megapixel unit. Rumours recently have suggested that the iPhone 5 camera may still be eight megapixels but allow users to take 3D images, but this remains to be seen. There is also the new improved S-Pen that comes with the Galaxy Note 2 that provides users with a range of new ways to interact with the smartphone and its content, and we will have to wait until Apple showcases the iPhone 5 for any new innovative features it may have. Samsung have revealed that the Galaxy Note 2 will be released in October in certain European regions, but have so far not given a more specific date for the handsets release in the US. This could play into Apple’s hands as you would have thought by then the iPhone 5 will have been released to most regions around the world, but it will also benefit consumers that will want to see what the iPhone 5 is like before committing to a new two year contract for either handset. A lot of consumers decisions will come down to personal choice and whether they need a smartphone with a screen the size of the Galaxy Note 2, but unless Apple really pulls something special out of the back in the coming weeks, more will be picking the Galaxy Note 2. 。 wholesale accessories,ipad accessories,ipod accessories,iphone accessories

Samsung Galaxy Player 5.8 Vs. 2012 iPod Touch Vs. Google Nexus 7 – No Real Contest

Those awaiting confirmation of the 2012 iPod Touch release date from Apple have this week been thrown a rather temptingalternative option – the new Samsung Galaxy Player 5.8. Available with a range of screen sizes between 3.6-inches and 5-inches, the new Galaxy Player certainly seems to have what it takes to stand up against the iPod Touch. Give the Galaxy Player 5.8 a passing glance and chances are you’d think it was a Samsung Galaxy S3 – which is of course hardly a bad thing. Screen sizes and dimensions are however slightly different and you certainly won’t be creditedwith the same pixel density as the S3 Smartphone – certainly not the iPhone 4S Retina display. Galaxy Player 5.8 buyers will find Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich behind the driving seat with the usual TouchWiz interface from Samsung. 32GB and 16GB variants are available – both with 1GB of RAM and microSD slot for further storage. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth round off what is undoubtedly a superb package, which is expected to start from about $200 to $250. However – and sadly it is a rather big however – all of the above is missing at least one or two key ingredients likely to ruin the Galaxy Player 5.8’s chances of competing at the highest levels. For one thing, the Galaxy Player 5.8 falls short of the iPod Touch experience by failing to feature a rear-mounted camera – immediately limiting both functionality and use of hundreds of popular Apps. What’s more, rumor has it that the 2012 iPod Touch release date will bring Apple’s first series of media players with optional 3G – low-calorie iPhones, if you will. And finally, if the $200-ish pricing point for the entry-level Galaxy Player 5.8 proves accurate, buyers will be forced to choose between a rather limited media player and the colossal Google Nexus 7 – also starting from $200. The time has come for a media player to break the mold in order to survive – the SamsungGalaxy Player 5.8 is truly great, but sadly that’s as far as it goes. sex gadget,sex toy,adult toy

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs Apple iPhone 5, A Rumor War

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Apple iPhone 5, both have their release and launch dates in the coming few weeks and believe it or not, both have seen more than enough rumors and speculations for us to do a full on comparison between both of these yet to be released successors of their respective series. Physical Features Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Apple iPhone 5, both differ way too much in terms of size, weight and width. Leaks suggest that the Note’s successor will even surpass the original Note and will come with a 5.5 inch display which means that you will probably see even bigger “tablet” which surely, would be big enough that neither it could be operated with one hand nor it could be adjusted in your pocket comfortably. As for the iPhone 5, there have been many leaked pictures suggesting that the next gen iPhone would also possess a larger 4.0 inch screen and a little taller yet of same width panel which means that the iPhone 5 would have more or less, the dimensions of the iPhone 4S. Display As stated earlier, currently the rumor has it that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 would be coming with a monstrous 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720(pixel density~267ppi) which for those keeping scores at home is the same type of display as used in the Samsung Galaxy S3, but of course, in a smaller size. The Apple iPhone 5 on the other hand, has seen leaks which are more than enough to confirm that it would be coming with a 4 inch display which may or not come with the famous retina display. However, seeing the competition, it most probably will. Processor Samsung Galaxy Note 2′s processor is yet to have a confirmation but currently bloggers and tech pundits from all around the world are speculating that either the latest addition to the Note family will be coming with a 2GHz proprietary Exynos 5250 quad-core chip or a 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 chipset. Just like the former, the iPhone 5 is also yet to have its processor confirmed. However, seeing how Apple has done away with the past iPhones, currently the safest bet is that the next gen iPhone would be coming with the same A5X Dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9 processor which was seen in the new iPad. There are also some rumors going around, that Apple foreseeing the competition might even end up in putting a quad core heart in the yet to be released iPhone. Other Tech Specs Samsung Galaxy Note 2 just like most of the latest Galaxy members would definitely come with NFC and 4G connectivity and it is being rumored that it will also come with a 12MP rear camera, at least 16GB of internal memory with more storage options available and the choice of using a microSD card up to 64GB, 1 or 2GB RAM and since it has quite some time since Jelly Bean made its debut, the Note’s successor might also come with the latest Android OS. Apple iPhone 5 tech specs are also based on rumors and speculations, but here is how the list goes. 4G LTE connectivity(since the new iPad has it, the next iPhone is bound to have LTE), NFC, at least an 8 MP rear camera and an improved front camera(the iPhone 4S front camera is terrible), at least 16 GB of internal storage which as usual can’t be increased through a microSD card slot, 1GB of RAM and most probably iOS 6. wholesale accessories,iphone accessories,ipod accessories,ipad accessories

Apple iPhone 4S vs iPhone 5 comparison review

The iPhone 4S is a hugely popular smartphone, but rumours about the iPhone 5 have been gathering speed for some time now, so here we place the known specs of the iPhone 4S next to the rumoured specs of the iPhone 5 in a comparison review. We will of course update this article as soon as Apple publishes the full specs of the iPhone 5, but until then we will be feeding off the scraps of Apple's infamous 'leaks', and the murky world of iPhone 5 rumours. See also iPhone 5 release date, specs and rumour round-up. With that, we advise those of you looking for a concrete comparison of official iPhone 4S vs iPhone 5 specs to wait until Apple unveils the iPhone 5, because definitive information will not be available until then. To find out when that iPhone 5 launch date will be, take a look at our iPhone 5 release date, specs and rumour round-up. VisitGroup test: What's the best smartphone? So here it is, the iPhone 4S vs iPhone 5 comparison review… based on rumours, leaks and – where possible - expert insight. See also Samsung Galaxy S3 vs Apple iPhone 5 comparison review. iPhone 4S vs iPhone 5 comparison review: Design The IPhone's size hasn't changed much at all really. The first iPhone started off measuring in at (HxWxD) 115x61x11.6mm and weighing 135g back in June 2007. Four-and-a-bit years later and Apple's iPhone 4S is still largely the same measuring 115.2x58.66x9.3mm and weighing 140g. During this time of nuanced change, Apple has kept the screen size of all iPhone generations the same, at 3.5-inches. The reason for this is so all the iPhone's built-in software and apps will run as seamlessly as possible across all versions of the iPhone. This pattern strongly suggests that the iPhone 5 will follow suit and Apple will design the iPhone 5 around a 3.5-inch screen, to keep continuity and apps running smoothly. That said, the signs are there to suggest that new Apple CEO Tim Cook isn't afraid of changing his flagship products' dimensions, as the 7-inch iPad mini is touted to appear soon. See iPad mini 'confirmed' October release date. Finally the rumour mills unanimously suggest that the iPhone 5 will follow in the footsteps of its Android rivals the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X by having a larger screen. What holds back the rumours of a bigger screen on the iPhone 5 is that there is a lack of unity about what screen size the next-generation Applesmartphone will be. With sources and leaks quoting screen sizes that range from 4-inches to 5-inches. However, one rumour that looks relatively sound and feasible is the 4in-screen iPhone 5 display photographs that have been leaked. One thing seems certain: whatever screen size the new iPhone 5 has, it will probably be Retina quality. iPhone 4S vs iPhone 5 comparison review: Processor The iPhone 4S uses a dual-core Apple A5 chip, this doubled the iPhone's (on paper) on-the-fly processing capabilities from the single core A4 chip found in the iPhone 4. Based on previous chips that Apple has used, it is PC Advisor's opinion that the iPhone 5 should have an A6 processor which could well be quad-core (which would double its processing capability again). However Apple could opt to use the A5X chip found in the new iPad which is dual-core with quad-core graphics. It’s worth pointing out that dual-core processors don’t offer twice the processing power of single-core chips, but they can work on two processes at the same time. This increases the speed of your device when it is multi-tasking. iPhone 4S vs iPhone 5 comparison review: Storage Apple has always made its iPhones available to buy in a few different storage sizes. The iPhone 4S is currently available with 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of storage. You can expect more of the same from Apple with the iPhone 5 in terms of choosing a storage size that suits you, but expect the sizes to increase - some rumours are suggesting that the next gen iPhone will expand up to a 128GB model. One possible rumour that has cropped up a few times is that the new Apple iPhone will have expandable memory in the form or something similar to an SD slot. It is our opinion that this will not be the case, instead we see the role of Apple's iCloud being even more integrated with the iPhone 5 and iOS 6, therefore solving the extra storage dilemma. Watch this space. iPhone 4S vs iPhone 5 comparison review: Camera The cameraphone arms race has slowed down a bit of late. Gone are the days when phone manufacturers would worry only about how many megapixels they could boast about on a smartphone's box, today it's all about quality. That said, the iPhone 4S' 8MP rear camera has always been well received in terms of its picture and video recording quality, therefor the need to improve the iPhone's camera will be considerably down Apple's list of priorities for iPhone 5 improved specs. One rumour that has caught our attention is the 'iPhone 5 will have a multi-point camera focusing system'. Sounds confusing, doesn't it? This rumour developed due to Apple being awarded a patent for a multi-point camera focusing systems and, according to the website that broke this story, the patent "describes a system that lets the user of a camera-equipped device select two or more areas of focus on a touchscreen which, when a picture is taken, are passed through a dedicated image processor to produce optimal sharpness and exposure for both regions." If you're still confused, go to the article iPhone 5 will have "multi-point camera focusing system" to find out more. iPhone 4S vs iPhone 5 comparison review: Software The massive success of the iPhone has been down to the quality of its software as much as it has been about the quality of its hardware, perhaps even more so. Apple's iOS works flawlessly and has caught the imagination of the public and app developers alike. The iPhone 4S currently runs the iOS 5 operating system, complete with Siri and iCloud access. The all-but-confirmed Autumn launch of the iPhone 5 is perfectly aligned with the actually confirmed Autumn launch of iOS 6, heavily suggesting the iPhone 5 will run the iOS 6 operating system. The OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion upgrade has already made Apple's intentions to create cross-platform operation more seamless, so you can definitely expect the iPhone 5's software to be more 'connected' to your other Apple devices. To find out more about iOS 6 and what we expect the iPhone 5's software to be like take a look at our iOS 6 preview. wholesale accessories,ipod accessories,ipad accessories,iphone accessories

Will The Galaxy S3 Still Be Superior to the iPhone 5?

Try as Apple might, its so-called “new iPhone” or “iPhone 5” will still be playing second fiddle to the Samsung Galaxy S3. We are, of course, basing this opinion on what we have heard about the new iPhone, and we’re not passing judgment yet on the device. But assuming the new iPhone is what the rumors suggest it will be, then the Galaxy S3 still has it beat.
Photo credit: Martin Hajek The Samsung Galaxy S3 will still, at the end of the day, have a far larger screen than the iPhone 5. At 4.8 inches, the Galaxy S3 has the largest screen among all smartphones (not counting “phablets” like the Galaxy Note), and even at 4 inches, the new iPhone 5 won’t hold a candle. It will also, most likely have a far more powerful battery at 2,100 mAh. Come on now, Apple, 10 mAh improvement on the new iPhone’s battery? That will still make it about two thirds as powerful as the Galaxy S3’s battery, assuming the rumors regarding the battery are correct. The jury is still out on iOS 6, which we still don’t know much about, but Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Samsung’s own special features truly set it apart from the rest of the competition. S Voice may not be Siri, but think about S Beam and all those other neat extras that have helped the Galaxy S3 stand out. If the new iPhone will come with 4G LTE and NFC, two of our favorite acronyms, that would make both devices even in that regard, but the way we see it, that large screen and the high-quality graphics that come with it and the bigger battery make the Galaxy S3 a clear winner as of now. 。 sex gadget,sex toy,adult toy

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 4s: What the Fans and Consumers Are Saying

The Inquirer recently posted an article comparing the iPhone 4s to the Samsung Galaxy 3. The article looked at the following features: Design & Build, Performance, Operating System & Software, Camera, Connectivity and Battery & Storage. In terms of which is the better phone, the article deemed the competition a tie. The author noted that while the Galaxy S3 might beat out the iPhone 4s in most categories, the author of the review maintains that "the iPhone 4s is simply much more of a pleasure to use from day to day." Inquirer readers seem to disagree. Following are comments that were posted in response to the article: - "After using my new [Galaxy] S3 for only an hour, the iPhone seemed like ancient technology. Like a heavy brick of ancient technology." - "The screen size of the iPhone [4s] makes typos constant. And autocorrect is horrid. Siri is a mess and if there is any ambient sound it goes way off track." - "Without a doubt the [Galaxy] S3 is more powerful and looks sleeker than the iPhone 4s, also the wider screen means that it's great for watching movies and TV." - "Don't get me wrong - I do like the iPhone[4s] because it is a nice phone, but other than that when it comes to specs, processor, screen and everything else the [Galaxy] S3 is way better." - "iPhones are just iPod touches with an extra antenna basically. If you want a real phone get the Galaxy S3." Obviously this particular fan base is pro-Galaxy S3. However, some readers are holding out for the iPhone 5 in the hopes that Apple will produce a superior cell phone sometime in September. Here's hoping: - "There is no comparison between these two phones. At least wait until the iPhone 5 comes out and then there might be something to compare." - "It is interesting to see how well the 4s holds up given the time it has been on the market. Let's see what the iPhone 5 brings and how that compares." - "Until the next generation iPhone 5 comes out, the iPhone 4s has nothing on the [Galaxy] S3." In terms of consumer preferences, it's clear that currently the Galaxy S3 beats out the iPhone 4s nine times out of ten. Once the iPhone 5 comes out, however, things may turn around and it could be anybody's ball game. 。 wholesale accessories,ipod accessories,ipad accessories,iphone accessories

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5 Features (Who Is Copying Who?)

The Galaxy S3 launched by Samsung was a challenge to the market share of Apple. And now with the rumored release of the iPhone 5 just around the corner, Apple is expected to take back what it lost in the last few months. However if rumors serve true, both the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 actually have more in common with one another than you would expect. Let’s check it out. Samsung Galaxy S3 & iPhone 5 similarities The processor in the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a Cortex A9 based on the Exynos 4 quad core internationally and if the rumors are true the latest iPhone 5 will also come with a quad core processor from Samsung as well. The Samsung Galaxy S3 and its 4.8-inch display is exactly 0.5-inches larger than its predecessor (4.3-inches). The iPhone 5 is expected to boast a 4-inch display which is also 0.5-inches bigger than its predecessor the iPhone 4S. One of the plus points of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is the thinness of the handset at just 8.6mm and weighing 133 grams. There are rumors that the iPhone 5 will have a unibody and if so it could be just 7.6mm in thickness, which would make it the lightest and the thinnest iPhone to ever have been released. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has Gorilla Glass 2 to protect the display and it is thought that the iPhone 5 will have it too. The camera on the Samsung Galaxy S3 is 8 megapixels and the iPhone at present has an 8 megapixel camera. It is thought that the camera on the new iPhone 5 will also be the same. NFC and LTE is found on the Samsung Galaxy S3 which provides users with a way of making payments and faster data speeds. It is also thought that the iPhone 5 will support both as well. 。 wholesale accessories,ipod accessories,iphone accessories,ipad accessories

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 4S: This Apple Is Stale

The Samsung Galaxy S3 is in a unique position within the market in that it’s the company gladiator that’s been selected to go head-to-head against Apple’s iPhone 5 in the smartphone arena. For now, the iPhone 4S is waging valiant battle, but can it really compete? Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 4S The Samsung Galaxy S3 4.8” Super AMOLED display with its 1280x720p resolution will be hard to beat. The iPhone 4S has a teeny 3.5”, 960x640p display; it’s Retina, but still looks outclassed by the S3. The Samsung Galaxy S3 weighs 133g and the iPhone 4S weighs 140g, so it feels a bit lighter. On the other hand, the iPhone 4S’ dimensions make it more hand and pocket-friendly. We shouldn’t forget the classier feel of the iPhone 4S when compared to the S3 as well. So in terms of design, the iPhone 4S is still the champion. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has a Qualcomm quad core processor internationally and a dual core chip in the US. It also has 1GB of RAM internationally and 2GB for the US version. The iPhone 4S has just 512MB with an 800MHz dual-core chip. Naturally the S3 wins out here. Both phones have 8MP cameras, but the front camera on the S3 is 1.9MP compared to the 0.3MP offering from Apple. The Samsung Galaxy S3 also has burst mode and zero shutter lag. Both cameras have the same chip, so perform similarly, so it’s the extra features that edge the S3 ahead. The iPhone 4S has a non-removable 1,420mAh battery compared to the S3’s 2,100mAh removable battery. To add to this advantage, the Samsung Galaxy S3 gives users three times the talk time of the iPhone 4S, has support for an external microSD card, and NFC and LTE capabilities. So, the Samsung Galaxy S3 wins out here, but this is because it was designed to compete with the iPhone 5, not the iPhone 4S. There’s no reason to buy an iPhone 4S now – it’s over. So, if you really can’t wait for the iPhone 5, grab a Samsung Galaxy S3 now. If you still fancy a 4S, hang on a few weeks more as its price is set to plummet ahead of its successor, the iPhone 5. 。 sex gadget,sex toy,adult toy

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5: Why I Went With S3

There’s loads of excitement around the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the iPhone 5, but right now the Samsung Galaxy S3 is the market’s most powerful handset. This phone has made record sales and is still popular enough to persuade many to buy it right now rather than hang on for the iPhone 5 or the Note 2. Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5: Why I bought the S3 You have to remember that there’s at least another month before Apple unveils the iPhone 5, which then means at least another month before it gets into the hands of the majority of customers. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is already here, with all the bells and whistles, so what’s not to like? Yes, the iPhone 5 is believed to have a 4-inch display, faster processor, 4G LTE and more RAM… but how is that any better than what the Samsung Galaxy S3 is already offering?. The Samsung Galaxy S3 can be charged wirelessly, and it’s thought that the iPhone 5 won’t have this facility. The S3’s battery is also removable, and Apple seems to be resistant to removable batteries. Apple phones also lack external SD card support, but the Samsung Galaxy S3 doesn’t. The Samsung Galaxy S3 also has HDMI output which is great for people who want to attach their phone to a large screen TV. Apple doesn’t have this as a rule and it doesn’t look like the iPhone series will inherit it anytime soon. The screen of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is also much larger than the iPhone 5 is expected to have. Android 4.1 JellyBean will be coming to the Samsung Galaxy S3 any week now, with the T-Mobile version already leaked, and this update will be bringing extras like Google Now and an S-Voice update. Apparently, the voice on S-Voice is more nicer to listen to than the one on Siri as it appears natural. So, despite iPhone 5 getting a lot of attention, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is still selling well, and for good reason. Sure, this may just be what I told myself so I could get the Samsung Galaxy S3 right now instead of waiting for the iPhone 5 to be unveiled and making a more informed decision. But I don’t think I will regret my decision. 。

iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3 (Why I Didn’t Wait For Apple)

Rumors abound about the phones due out over the next few months, including the Galaxy Note 2 and the iPhone 5. Until these hit us, there’s the Samsung Galaxy S3, one of the best phones available. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has smashed pre-order records and is one of the fastest smartphones around. So should you run out and grab it or wait for the iPhone 5? iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3: Why I didn’t wait for Apple The Samsung Galaxy S3 is that bird in the hand rather than one of the two in the bush. The iPhone 5 isn’t out for at least another month and most likely longer by the time it hits your pocket. The Samsung Galaxy S3 also has some bragging rights under it, outdoing even some iPhone 5 rumors e.g. it sports a 4.8” screen as opposed to Apple’s rumored 4” on the iPhone 5. Another Samsung Galaxy S3 advantage is the option for wireless charging – the iPhone 5 isn’t likely to have this. You can also remove the S3’s large battery, whereas the iPhone 5’s smaller battery is fixed and – well, smaller. The iPhone 5 isn’t expected to have an external SD card like the Samsung Galaxy S3, which is annoying if you’re like me and take a lot of pictures and video. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has HDMI outputs for hooking up to a HDTV, but we’ve heard nothing about this from Apple so far. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is headed for the S3 before the year is up, bringing Google Now and an update for S-Voice with it. The S-Voice is more pleasing to the ear than Siri, so we’re told. Apple fans are going to love the iPhone 5 regardless, but it’s not going to outdo the Samsung Galaxy S3 in any big way from a software or hardware point – they’ll be level pegging. I’m quite impartial in terms of OS, but since buying a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 last week, I’m liking it a lot. Whether I will regret my decision when the iPhone 5 launches remains to be seen, but judging from the Galaxy S / iPhone battles from the past two years, you can’t go wrong with either one of their products. wholesale accessories,iphone accessories,ipad accessories,ipod accessories

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5: How It Will Go Down

While the court case between Samsung and Apple continue, the new iPhone 5 is rumored to be launched on 12th September. But is all the hype going to be more than the iPhone 5 will be able to deliver and will it be able to beat the Samsung Galaxy S3? Many people are beginning to believe that the iPhone 5 will be the biggest launch of a handset in the history of smartphones, if the hype is to be believed of course. While many people may flock to buy it, will they be happy with it? Samsung Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 5 The design of the upcoming iPhone 5 is said to be a metal casing and this would look better than the plastic casing of the Samsung Galaxy S3. The iPhone 5 is thought to be just 7.6mm in thickness and the Samsung Galaxy S3 is 8.6mm. The obvious advantages the Samsung Galaxy S3 will have over the iPhone 5 is obviously its removable battery and expandable storage, something Apple has always deviated from with its iOS devices. Samsung should have the advantage with the larger screen which is 4.8-inches with a resolution of 1280 x 720p, while the screen of the new iPhone 5 may be 4-inches only. The battery on the new iPhone 5 may be a bit of a letdown if rumors of its 1,440mAh capacity are true. The battery on the Samsung Galaxy S3 is 2100mAh but then again it has to power the larger display. One change which may not be welcomed on the iPhone 5 is the dock connector. Apple are said to be doing away with the 30 pin connector and moving to a 19 pin. This would mean that accessories currently on the market for the iPhones will not work with the latest model. The iPhone 5 is thought to be announced on 12th September and should be on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon for around $800 unlocked and around $199 on a contract of two years. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has to date sold over 10 million units since July. As for the iPhone 5, we can surely expect it to beat the S3 in sales numbers given the track record of the iPhones before it. In the end, both smartphones will have their own advantages and disadvantages, with iOS fans naturally going for the iPhone 5 and Android fans going with the latter. With both smartphones being the flagship devices of their respective brands, you simply can’t go wrong with either. 。 sex gadget,sex toy,adult toy

iPhone 5 Or Samsung Galaxy S3: Best Bang For Your Buck

Fans of Apple will argue with fans of Windows about which of the operating systems is the best. The same applies with iOS and the Android operating system. So which is the best buy? Will the iPhone 5 or the Samsung Galaxy S3 give you the best bang for your buck? iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3 Cost has to be a factor when considering purchasing a new handset. If buying the new iPhone 5 when it is released it would have to be the 64GB version of the handset due to the amount of media and pictures I have gathered over my iPhones in the past and are sitting in my iTunes account. There is also the fact that the iPhone never supported external microSD cards.. The cost for the iPhone 4S at the moment with 16GB is around $199 on a contract of two years. There is also the 32GB and 64GB version, with the 64GB being $399. Therefore it is safe to say that the 64GB version of the new iPhone 5 will be around the same $400 price point. On the other hand if I had to choose an Android handset then it would be the Samsung Galaxy S3 naturally. The phone has expandable memory, which is a bonus over the iPhone 5, and the 16GB is $199 and the 32GB on Verizon is $249. The memory can also be expanded to another 64GB with MicroSD card. This means that I would be able to purchase the 16GB and a 64GB card and have total capacity of 80GB for less than the price of the 32GB iPhone 5. You then have to bear in mind that the Samsung Galaxy S3 is on the bleeding edge of technology and according to all the iPhone 5 leaks and rumors to date, it will merely match the S3 in terms of hardware. Furthermore, rumors of Apple switching to a 19-pin dock connector suggests that your current iOS accessories would be obsolete, unless you plunk down some extra cash for an adapter. If this is the case then the Samsung Galaxy S3 will certainly appear to be the better deal for your pocket.

iPhone 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S3: Will Rumored iPhone 5 Features Fail to Compete with Galaxy S3 Ahead Sept. 12 Preorder Launch?

The "biggest handset launch in (Apple) history" is set for Sept. 12, according to Jefferies analyst Peter Misek about the iPhone 5, but with the information gathered so far, it seems the new device is no match to Samsung's latest mobile. The Galaxy S3 has so far sold 10 million units for the month of July. The rumored features for the iPhone 5 are definitely improvements from its predecessor, the iPhone 4S, but not by much. Battery Power: One of the important aspects of the iPhone 5 is its battery power, which will receive an upgraded capacity of 1140 milliamp hours (mAh), which is 10mAh higher than the iPhone 4S. The higher the mAh means the phone is fully-charged. For the Galaxy S3, the battery power is practically double with 2100 mAh. The mAh for the latest Samsung device is an improvement from the Galaxy S2's mAh which ran between 1500 and 1850 mAh. Winner: Samsung Galaxy S3 - Stronger battery power equals longer use. The battery life once again goes back to the display as a low mAh could suggest a small display which appears to be true based on suggested sizes of the iPhone 5's screen. Display/Screen: The iPhone 5 is expected to be 7.6mm thick with a non-removable battery, while the Galaxy S3 is a bit thicker with 8.6mm but with a removable battery. The Galaxy S3's screen is 4.8-inches with a Super AMOLED HD screen with an impressive resolution of 1,280x720. The improvements here from the Galaxy S2 was also Super AMOLED but with a screen size of 4.3-inches and 800x400 resolution. The iPhone 5 has carries less numbers with only a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 1,136x640 and will remain with the IPS display as its predecessors. The screen size for the iPhone 5 is .5 bigger compared to the iPhone 4S, but .8 less than Samsung's device. The iPhone 4S is 3.5-inches with a resolution of 960x640. Winner: Samsung Galaxy S3 - If you like to view media in HD, then Samsung is in your favor. Operating System: The iPhone 5's operating system is unknown, but based on scheduled releases from Apple, it could run on the new iOS 6. The latest Apple mobile operating system is scheduled for a September launch, likely the same day as the iPhone 5 preorder launch. The iOS 6 will have an improved Siri voice command that will familiarize with other languages, better integration with Facebook and Twitter which will give users an easier time sharing photos, media files, and contacting others, and payment system new app titled Passbook that rivals Google's Wallet. Notably absent from the iOS 6 will be the apps of YouTube and Google Maps, instead Apple's Map App will replace Google Maps and YouTube will be categorized differently. For the Galaxy S3, it runs with Android's Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). The ICS have so far received good reviews due to its multitasking features and easy to use widges. However, the newest Android operating system, the Jelly Bean, is scheduled to launch for the Galaxy S3 around the same time as iPhone 5 makes its debut. Winner: Draw - Both operating systems have its benefits and improvements, especially the iOS 6 which features give the Android operating systems a run for its money. Additional iPhone 5 Changes: A major change iPhone 5 users can expect is it no longer accepts the 30-pin connector used in other Apple products. Latinos Post reported a small dock port is shown in rumored leaked images and it will support a 19-pin model. But leaked images released show a connector with nine pins, but it hasn't been confirmed by Apple. The change of the pin means it will no longer be compatible with current iPhone docking products, which gives Apple the opportunity to create and sell docking products for the 9-pin or 19-pin connector. The iPhone 5 is also out of the question for T-Mobile customers, as Apple and the fourth largest mobile carrier in the US still have not come to an agreement on selling the device. T-Mobile thinks the iPhone is a good device and we've expressed our interest to Apple to offer it to our customers. Ultimately, it is Apple's decision," said T-Mobile in a statement. "We believe a capable version of the iPhone for our 3G and 4G networks would offer an additional compelling option for our customers on a fast 4G network." The iPhone 5 will be available for AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless customers, but similar to the iPhone 4S, unlocked iPhone 5's will undoubtedly circulate around the web for T-Mobile customers to purchase. The latest iPhone is expected to cost up to $800 without the standard two-year contract, but it can go as low as $199 when signing a two-year contract with the three major phone carriers: AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon. "While the iPhone 5 may be a huge hit with Apple fans, it is not expected to be better than the S3 in terms of hardware or software, but merely matching it. Given that I am not partial to either OS, I jumped on a Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 last week already and haven't regretted it... yet," said Dwayne Madden of Auto-o-Mobile. 。 wholesale accessories,ipod accessories,ipad accessories,iphone accessories

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs. Apple iPhone 4S: Why Experts Are Embracing the Galaxy S3 Over "Bored" iPhone 4S Read more at

In light of the high-profile Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit over each company's mobile phone offerings, here is a glimpse at two phones duking it out in the marketplace for the #1 spot amongst consumers. In one corner is the Samsung Galaxy S3 and in the other Apple's iPhone 4s. Which will come out on top? Let's explore. Apple's iPhone 4s is available in black or white. Memory options include 16GB, 32GB or 64GB, which retail for $199, $299 and $399 respectively. This world phone measures in at 4.5"x2.3"x0.37" and it weighs 4.9 ounces. It utilizes the iOS5 operating system and offers a dual-core 1GHz cortex-A9 CPU. Talk time is estimated at eight hours. The 4s comes with an 8 Megapixel camera with LED flash, touch focus, geo-tagging and face detection and also has video recording capabilities. Other features include a scratch-resistant glass back panel, the much-loved Siri with her natural language commands and dictation, iCloud cloud service, Twitter integration and Google maps. The phone comes with accessories including Apple earphones, dock connector to USB cable and USB power adapter. The Galaxy S3, available in Marble White and retails for $199.99. It is a touch-screen device that measures 5.38"x2.78"x0.34" and it weighs 4.7 ounces. It boasts a 1.5 GHz dual core processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform. It is currently available with a 16GB memory and has an HD Super AMOLED 4.8" display. Battery life for this phone is comparable to the iPhone 4s, with 8 hours of talk time. In terms of the phone's specific features, it offers Bluetooth connectivity, voice recognition and text-to-speech capabilities. The 8.0 Megapixel camera has 4x digital optical zoom, autofocus, camcorder, DivX, HD recording and playback and video share, and the phone has its own video player as well. The user interface features TouchWiz; Smart Unlock; Accelerometer; Motion Gestures; Smart Stay; S Voice (a.k.a. Samsung's Siri); S Suggest; Kies Air; Pop Up Play; Share Shot and AllShare Play. The tech community is buzzing with mostly positive reviews of the Galaxy S3. Techradar.com calls it "a phone worthy of the hype." CNET.com states outright that it is impressed with the phone and calls it a "tidy package of top-flight specs, approachable design, steady performance and compelling pricing." NPR's Linda Wertheimer recently hosted technology columnist Rich Jaroslovsky for a discussion about the Galaxy S3 vs. the iPhone 4s and in Jaroslovsky's option the Samsung phone "is an iPhone wannabe that also sets a marker for the next iPhone." The Huffington Post has declared that the Galaxy S3 gives the iPhone 4s a run for its money and reviewer Jason Gilbert tells readers: "I can, with all of my heart, endorse the Galaxy S3." Well, while the verdict for which phone wins is still up in the air, it's safe to say that consumers and tech experts alike are embracing Samsung's new mobile, seemingly having grown perhaps slightly bored and/or disillusioned with Apple's iPhone 4s. The $10,000 question is, will fans forget the Galaxy once the iPhone 5 is released in the very near future? Only time will tell. 。 sex gadget,sex toy,adult toy

iPhone 5 Vs. Galaxy S3 Rendering Showdown: Probably the Best Pre-iPhone Hype Ever

A new video based on the iLab leak, in our opinion, perhaps the most fascinating look at the sixth-generation new iPhone. This 3D rendering comparison pits the upcoming iPhone 5 against a device that it is expected to be in competition with as the world’s most beloved smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S3. In this video we see the new iPhone in a variety of angles, giving viewers a chance to fully appreciate what could be its official design. We can see bits and pieces of different iPhone 5 rumors in this video, such as the metal unibody, the smaller dock connector and the usual stuff, meaning the taller design and 4-inch screen. And of course the Galaxy S3 is in there, a device known for its rounded corners and gigantic 4.8-inch screen. You have to see this video to fully appreciate it, so we won’t spoil it for you any further. Many reports are linking the iPhone 5 to a special event organized by Apple itself, to be held on September 12. As if it wasn’t obvious enough, we’re inclined to believe the new iPhone will go the same route as the new iPad and drop the numerical designation completely. Other rumored specs include 4G LTE, NFC and iOS 6, the latter of which seems almost definite. 。 wholesale accessories,ipod accessories,iphone accessories,ipad accessories

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 vs iPhone 5: September release date almost confirmed

Apple’s iPhone 5 release date on September 21st tipped by Verizon vacation blackout. Meanwhile, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 reportedly arriving by mid-September. September, the month of high-end phones? The long-rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is set to go on sale by mid September, according to a slew of new reports posted online. Apparently, Samsung has posted a YouTube video this week to confirm that the August 29 pre-IFA event is for the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Though the new video does not mention the Galaxy Note 2, it briefly shows the unannounced device’s S Pen whilst bragging about its portability and weight. If rumors are to be believed, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will sport a larger 5.5-inch display with “Retina-like” pixel density. It will also include a quad-core Exynos 4 processor and a dual-core processor for the United States smartphone market. Similar to the Samsung Galaxy S3, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will also include an 8-megapixel back-facing camera and a front-facing 1.9-megapixel “HD” camera. A new design and a “better build quality” are also widely expected. The 38-second video was uploaded by Samsung Mobile mainly to compete with Apple in the “rumors” department as more reports confirm that Apple’s iPhone 5 will arrive on September 21 and Apple will reportedly announce the device by mid-September. It is plausible that Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 2 before the release date of the iPhone 5 to avoid the so-called “Apple rush” which includes long-lines and blockbuster pre-orders and a pile of backorders. Speaking of the iPhone 5 release date, Verizon Wireless reportedly blocked all vacation days of employees next month, ahead of the September 21 “massive” launch date. According to Apple Insider, vacation dates of Verizon Wireless employees have been blocked starting from September 21 to Sept. 30 which is possibly the first week of the iPhone 5 in the lucrative smartphone market. The iPhone 5, reportedly with Long Term Evolution, will allow Verizon Wireless to generate more revenue from customers who are willing to pay more for faster LTE network. Meanwhile, a new rumor posted by hit and miss site Digitimes, component shortages will affect the sales of the iPhone 5 for the next few months and it will likely to slide below 15 million units, down from the original 20 million iPhone 5 forecasted by the Cupertino-based company. Grain of salt. The site added that the supply shortage is “due to low yield rates in the production of in-cell touch panels as well as a connector at the bottom of the phone” citing its sources from supply chain. Apart from the new iPhone, other rumors also added that Apple’s September launch date will include a new iPad, a smaller version of the tablet computer called “iPad Mini.” Possibly larger than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2′s 5.5-inch display, the iPad Mini will not only target the possible buyers of the new Galaxy Note, but also the consumers targeted by retail giant Amazon and its Kindle Fire 2. 。 wholesale accessories,iphone accessories,ipod accessories,ipad accessories

iPhone 5 rumour roundup for the week

For the iOSphere, reading SEC documents is the modern equivalent of the ancient art of haruspicy, reading animal entrails, to learn the future of the Next iPhone. Much is revealed to the trained eye. And what’s revealed this time is that iPhone 5 will have a cool fingerprint sensor at the heart of a digital mobile wallet with NFC-enabled payments. And that’s probably just to start with. Also this week, Korean confirmation of LTE, the promise of pre-orders on the same day as The Revelation itself, learning the difference between a hoax rumour and a, you know, real rumour, and photos of the iPhone 5 battery. You read it here second. iPhone 5 will have AuthenTec’s fingerprint sensor technology And that will mean, it will also have an NFC-based “mobile wallet” capability. This all based on the interpretations being applied to the latest SEC filing by AuthenTec (you can check out our full coverage of this story). The company makes a variety of smart sensors, identity management and embedded security products, including fingerprint sensors used in PCs and laptops. On July 27 AuthenTec announced it was being acquired by Apple for US$356 million, Apple’s biggest ever. This month, AuthenTec filed required paperwork with the SEC, revealing new details of its talks with Apple. TheNextWeb’s Matt Brian read the filing and concludes that Apple is likely to incorporate into iPhone 5 (and the “iPad Mini” if there is one) the company’s recently announced 2D fingerprint sensor, and associated software, for NFC-equipped smartphones and tablets. “Will we see fingerprint technology in the new iPhone (or iPad)?” Brian asks. “It seems almost certain. AuthenTec specialises in a number of security products and software that theoretically could have made their way into Apple’s production line or code branches. Details are scarce but its desire to use the technology and see it developed quickly leads us to speculate that we could see it in just a matter of weeks.” MacDailyNews at once began the echo chamber amplification that exemplifies Apple rumouring, by adding in its headline a detail that Brian never mentioned: “Apple’s iPhone 5 to include fingerprint sensor in Home button?” Essentially, the SEC document contains AuthenTec’s account of its talks with Apple, which began in late 2011 when AuthenTec began trying to interest consumer electronics companies in a new technology still in development — a 2D fingerprint sensor and associated software specifically for NFC-equipped mobile devices. It was formally announced in May 2012. Brian interprets those details, probably accurately, as showing that Apple was determined very early on to get its hands on the mobile fingerprint technology. The company repeatedly insisted that AuthenTec continue development especially to adapt the sensor to Apple’s specific requirements. But Brian falls victim to the “what else could it be” mindset that permeates Apple rumouring. The negotiation details in the SEC filing, to Brian, are evidence of Apple’s urgency. “If AuthenTec was developing a technology for Apple’s new products, would the deal need to have been completed “quickly” if it wasn’t going to be used in devices launching later this year (or mere months after negotiations began)?” Brian asks. What else could it be? Brian clearly believes that Apple’s desire to quickly consummate the deal reveals the AuthenTec fingerprint sensor will be included in the new iPhone and other Apple products expected to be announced this spring. We are not convinced. iPhone 5 will have LTE because the Koreans are asking Apple for it The Korea Times published, in English, a story headlined “SKT, KT in talks with Apple for LTE service,” which explained fairly straightforwardly that the leading Korean mobile carriers are trying to convince Apple to support their LTE networks in the next iPhone. The Korea Times cited “officials from the companies,” but there’s little information directly associated to an official. Most of the details apparently come from “one high-ranked industry source who is familiar with the situation.” The Consensus Rumour is that Apple will have LTE radios in iPhone 5, because if it doesn’t, it will be a planetary disaster on a scale not seen since the Chicxulub asteroid collision 65 million years ago. If Apple does introduce LTE, that would mean the Koreans are trying to get support for their specific LTE networks, which would require different radios. In any case, the iOSphere quickly amplified the implications. SlashGear’s headline: “iPhone 5 LTE confirmed by Korean mobile carriers.” Chris Burn wrote: “This week it appears that the Korean mobile data carrier KT may have spilled the beans a bit early as they’ve been quoted speaking about the next-generation iPhone by the Korea Times. … This of course means Korea’s 4G LTE frequencies will be in play — and that it’s likely the USA will be connected with this data speed as well.” CNET’s Lance Whitney was more circumspect, saying only that The Korea Times story was “yet another potential sign” of LTE support in iPhone 5. “If Apple’s upcoming iPhone again fails to support LTE bandwidths, then this would be a very disappointing scenario as LTE is everywhere in Korea,” said a high-ranking SK Telecom executive, quoted in the original Korea Times story. iPhone 5 pre-orders start on the day of announcement, Sept. 12 When Apple announces iPhone 5 on Sept. 12, would-be buyers will be able to place “pre-orders” for it that same day, according to iMore’s Rene Ritchie, who cites “sources that have provided iMore with accurate iPhone related launch dates in the past.” A “pre-order” is one of those conceptually garbled catch-phrases that never fails to inspire confidence the writer knows what he’s talking about. Technically, it means that you can “reserve” a product before it officially goes on sale. iMore says, presumably from the same sources, that iPhone will go on sale — be released, be available — on Oct. 14. iPhone 5 won’t use weird screws after all because the screws were a hoax Some websites and blogs repeated a recent rumour that Apple was introducing in iPhone 5 a special screw that would make it much harder for third-party and do-it-yourself repairs. It turns out we don’t have to worry about that because the screw rumour was a deliberate hoax, distinct from the unintended hoaxes so common in the iOSphere, perpetrated by Lukasz Lindell of the Swedish Day4 blog. And we know this because Lindell described the plot in a blog post, “How we screwed (almost) the whole Apple community.” “Less than 12 hours later [after the initial post, complete with elaborate 3D rendering of the new screw] it had happened,” Lindell writes. “First came Apple blog Cult of Mac, who reported ‘Apple May Be Working On A Top Secret Asymmetric Screw To Lock You Out Of Your Devices Forever’ and then it just went on. More and more blogs wrote about the alleged leaks from Apple headquarters in Cupertino, USA. Yahoo, Wired jumped on. On Twitter, numerous posts raged about the issue. On YouTube, people made video blogs about the new screw. Google+ talked about it page after page.” Perhaps typical of the iOSphere, Boy Genius Report carried a brief account of the rumour, when it surfaced on Reddit, describing a “picture of dubious veracity showing that Apple is purportedly redesigning its screws to have asymmetric heads.” Lindell noticed two intriguing patterns in the reactions. “[T]he blogs and newspapers that reported on the screw all fell back on that this was a vague rumour, unconfirmed, but yet discussed what impact the screw could get for the Mac world if it was in use,” he noted. Readers of these posts reacted in a binary fashion: “Either they perceived the news as truth, or called it fake, no grey zone in between,” Lindell wrote. “The split between the two camps [of readers-commenters], was quite unequal. An estimate would be that 90% regarded the screw as a fact and based all the further opinion on that, only 10% were critical to accuracy.” The “further” from the original story, the more likely it was that readers simply accepted the story as true, according to Lindell. Now, even more of the news and rumour sites are covering the revelation of the exposure, such as AppleInsider, which pointedly notes that it for one “declined to cover” the original rumour. iPhone 5 will have a bigger battery iPhone 5 will ship with a bigger battery, based on photos published by 9to5Mac. But the extra oomph seems a bit underwhelming if writer Mark Gurman is correct about the battery’s specifications. The photos come from a “reliable parts source (via 9to5Mac contributor Sonny Dickson),” Gurman writes. It’s not quite clear what this means: Is the parts source reliable because it’s fed 9to5Mac reliable information in the past, or because Dickson claims that the source is reliable? The iOSphere Consensus Rumour is that iPhone 5 will have LTE wireless, a larger screen with more pixels, and possibly a new or at least improved CPU. All of which will increase demand on the battery. A bigger battery may be possible because of the expected larger vertical length of the New iPhone. According to Gurman’s story, the battery shown in the supplied photos has a capacity of 1440 mAh (up from 1430 mAh in the iPhone 4S), voltage of 3.8 (up from 3.7), and watts-per-hour of 5.45 (up a whopping 0.1 wHr, from 5.25). A drop in battery performance for iPhone 5 would be a big problem. We recently summarised some informed speculation on Apple’s iPhone 5 battery challenges, by Noam Kedem, vice president of marketing for Leyden Energy, a Fremont, Calif.-based battery maker for consumer electronics, electric vehicles and storage applications. Kedem doesn’t expect a battery breakthrough in iPhone 5, but does expect Apple to make every effort to optimise the phone’s power use by various components, stress power efficiency in selecting components such as LTE radio chipsets, and increase battery size wherever and however possible. More radical battery technologies may find their way into “iPhone 6.” 。 sex gadget,sex toy,adult toy

New iPhone 5 & iPad Mini Release Dates & Debuts in September

New leaks suggest that September will be a big month for Apple new releases and announcements. TechCrunch reported that Verizon has informed employees that they will not be able to take vacation on Friday, September 21 until Friday, September 30. This information is interpreted to mean that the dates are for the sale of the new iPhone 5. It is also rumored that Apple will make its latest iPhone announcement on September 12 with a “trusted” source stating the release date will be Friday September 21. Apple and Verizon have waited until Friday for its iPhone launches. AT&T employees are not taking vacations during the last two weeks of September until the middle of October. MacRumors reported that Apple is informing its reseller partners to “set aside additional table space for iPad displays over the next few weeks by September 12, when Apple will reported unveil the iPad Mini. New leaks showed a Franken-iPhone pieced together with parts to create a mock iPhone 5 by iResQ which some call a Franken-iPhone. There is photo of the headphone jack/docking port assembly screwed into the back casing of the next iPhone: The new iPhone pieces have a smaller charging plug and earphone jack on the bottom. The company is already stocking repair parts for the unannounced devices. The dock connector and headphone assemblies for the iPad Mini and new iPhone are very similar suggesting the iPad Mini could be more like an iPhone Maxi than an iPad. The most prominent new feature believed is a 4″ touchscreen. The iPhone is so popular that Yahoo’s new CEO Marisss Mayer wants to give every Yahoo employee an iPhone for consistency. 。 wholesale accessories,iphone accessories,ipod accessories,ipad accessories

iPhone 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy S3: Comparing Design, Display, and Battery Power; Why iPhone Docking Products Are Incompatible with the iPhone 5

The Samsung and Apple war wages on as the iPhone 5 is set to officially debut on Sept. 12, but comparisons of the two company's devices may prove the hype for the iPhone 5 is unwarranted. The strong hype for Apple's latest iPhone device has led Jefferies analyst Peter Misek to believe the iPhone 5 will be "the biggest handset launch in history." Misek could be right, a lot of people will undoubtedly purchase the device but will they be satisfied with it? The design for the Samsung Galaxy S3 features a plastic casing, which may turn people away as the iPhone 5 will have a metal casing instead. The iPhone 5 is also expected to be 7.6mm thick with a non-removable battery, while the Galaxy S3 is a bit thicker with 8.6mm but with a removable battery. The screens of the devices are also different, with Samsung taking advantage. The Galaxy S3's screen is 4.8-inches with a Super AMOLED HD screen and a resolution of 1,280x720. The iPhone 5 has carries less numbers with only a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 1,136x640 and will remain with the IPS display as its predecessors. The screen size for the iPhone 5 is .5 bigger compared to the iPhone 4S, but .8 less than Samsung's device. As Latinos Post reported, the battery power for the iPhone 5 is expected to last eight hours for 3G users and 14 hours for 2G. Its battery life is expected to have a capacity of 1140mAh, which is 10mAh higher than the iPhone 4S. But once again, the battery life battle goes to the Galaxy S3 with a mAh of 2100. The battery life once again goes back to the display as a low mAh could suggest a small display which appears to be true if the iPhone 5 launches with the 4.0-inch screen. A major change iPhone 5 users can expect is it no longer accepts the 30-pin connector used in other Apple products. Latinos Post reported a small dock port is shown in rumored leaked images and it will support a 19-pin model. The change of the pin means it will no longer be compatible with current iPhone docking products, which gives Apple the opportunity to create and sell docking products for the 19-pin connector. The iPhone 5 is expected to launch on Sept. 12 for AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon with a price tag of $800 without a standard two-year contract but can go as low as $199 when signing a contract. The Galaxy S3 has already sold more than 10 million units in just for the month of July. 。 wholesale accessories,iphone accessories,ipad accessories,ipod accessories

iPhone 5 release date: New photos of Apple iPhone 5 features shock analysts

Since the announcement of the alleged iPhone 5 release date, which is scheduled for Sept. 12th 2012, the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini from Apple continue to have the web in a frenzy. As usual, the Cupertino company is very stingy with information, thus giving free rein to the wildest rumors. As we have seen with the release of the iPhone 4S and its previous rumors, most were false. Pictures of the Apple iPhone 5 create buzz Apple's products have definitely emerged as the stars of the summer. Due to the lack of information from the Californian company, leaks, rumors and speculation towards the iPhone 5 are increasing. It is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish the truth from false. Rumors, particularly concerning the appearance of the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini, are many. Recently, new pictures by iResQ (a company responsible for repairing Apple products) showing the connectors of these two devices are creating enormous buzz. Upon looking at these pictures, I immediately noticed the presence of an eight-pin connector, which is in total contradiction with the information revealed by iOS 6 Beta 4. Since their appearance on the web, these pictures have divided analysts. While some have questioned their authenticity, others believe they are closer to reality. We will find out who is right on Sept. 12th, which is the date set for the official launch of the iPhone 5 in the United States. What about the rumor of the iPad Mini being presented with the iPhone 5 during the keynote? In addition to the future generation of the new iPhone, the other anticipated product of the Apple brand is the iPad Mini, and rumors surrounding it are extremely numerous. Pending its official release which hitherto remains at the stage of speculation, the rumors about it are growing very quickly on the web. Regarding its appearance, it seems that contrary to what one might expect, the iPad Mini will not be a miniature version of the current iPad 3. Its appearance is closer to that of the iPod Touch or iPhone, according to the rumors. The site 9to5Mac has also posted some pictures of what would be a possible prototype of this mini tablet. From these pictures, we see that this so-called prototype shows a lack of bezel on the side, which is found on the current iPad. This could make it a little difficult to grip. The iPad Mini is also expected to be lighter, its weight should not exceed 650 grams. Finally, another detail that distinguishes the iPad Mini is a microphone on the back. Besides appearance, other information of interest to many users is the price of the new iPad Mini. The miniature version of the Apple tablet computer may be offered at a lower price to compete with other mini tablets. Be careful with the rumors surrounding the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini. With the iPhone 4S, very few people knew in advance the precise features of the iPhone 4S. There were thousands of concepts and assumptions, some of which were true. Keep constantly in mind, that these rumors did not come from Apple itself, making them somewhat easily discredited. Whether customers, suppliers or assemblers of the iPhone 5, Apple made ??secrecy a point of honor. There are many false rumors related to the iPhone 5 and keep a critical mind of any information given to you, either towards the iPhone 5, or more generally in everyday life. sex gadget,adult toy,sex toy

iPhone 5: 10 features to expect

Few things cause as much hype as Apple products: the company’s mantra of secrecy sees to it that expectation and speculation is rampant before any official releases. And the rumoured iPhone 5 is no exception. However, with less than a month to go now before the iPhone 5 is expected to be announced, what can we realistically expect to see? Well, if anyone is after a new revelation in the smartphone market, be prepared to be disappointed. As with the iPhone 4S, the next generation iPhone – if there really is one – is going to continue the theme of “evolution”, not “revolution”. The short version is that physically, the iPhone 5 will be slightly taller and slightly thinner than the current iPhone. Additionally, it’ll have the headphone jack in a different place, and a new smaller connector plug that is going to annoy the hell out of anyone with an existing dock. The main selling point, however, will likely to be improved user experience. This has always been Apple’s focus, and this is unlikely to change under Tim Cook’s direction. And it’s likely to be centred on improvements to the latest operating system release: iOS 6. Expected features of the iPhone 5 The rumour mill to date is unlikely to be either fully accurate or comprehensive in terms of what an iPhone 5 will deliver. After all, we were all expecting an “iPhone 5″ branded release this time last year. This is despite a number of supposed leaks from hardware manufacturers in Asia. However, these are the points currently being roundly agreed upon: 1. Larger display area The iPhone 5 will be taller, by about a centimetre. Additionally, it will have a screen that is closer to the edge of the casing. The result is a significantly larger display for your money. 2. The thinnest smartphone on the market If reports on the new iPhone 5′s dimensions are anything to go by, it’ll measure somewhere in the region of 58.47mm x 123.83mm x 7.6mm. This will be 2mm thinner than the current iPhone 4S, and 1mm thinner than Samsung’s Galaxy SIII. If true, it’ll be quite a coup for the marketing department, if it can proclaim Apple has the thinnest and lightest smartphone on the market, therefore inferring innovation. 3. NFC support We expected support for NFC (Near Field Communication technology) on the iPhone 4S – therefore enabling the iPhone to function as an electronic wallet. The rumour refuses to die that Apple will implement this in the next generation iPhone. 4. Improved video One area where Apple tend to get caught out are the camera specifications. Your older 5MP iPhone may take photos as good if not better quality than on a HTC boasting a 8MP camera – but it still sounds wrong. The iPhone 4S announced an improved camera, but there may be room to improve HD video recording specifically. 5. Improved battery life Part of the rumoured iPhone 5 design changes include specific allowance for a slightly larger battery. While Apple devices are definitely in the strongest end when it comes to battery life, faster processors take up more power. So the battery here is expected to improve in line with a new improved quad processor. 6. 4G/LTE support We saw LTE support rolled out on the latest iPad – unfortunately, targeted squarely at the US market. Everythingeverywhere is still looking for a limited 4G roll-out this autumn, though whether any LTE support specs on a new iPhone will make a difference to British users remains to be seen. We know Steve Jobs was concerned about how this would drain the battery – but as we’ve already seen, the iPhone 5 is rumoured to be bigger in part to take a larger battery. 7. New connector and jack location Part of the new design changes involve a migration of the headphone jack from one end to the other – but perhaps more importantly, the strongest rumours are of a new 8-pin plug being introduced across the Apple product range. Perhaps intended to create a more efficient experience, a lot of people are unlikely to be happy with this as it means existing docking peripherals will not work, as the iPhone 5 will be the wrong shape, with the wrong connection, for use. 8. iOS6: Smoother user experience Simple user experience improvements to the apps store are expected. For example, not having to login just to download a free app and use it is an obvious one. However, while there have been leaks about hardware specifications, Apple has any software surprises firmly under wraps. The fact that iOS6 is expected to be launched in conjunction with a refreshed iPhone5 means that we can expect some user-experience improvements – some of which may quite surprise us. 9. September 12th Initial speculation suggested a launch date in October – however, mumbles from manufacturers has been interpreted as meaning thatApple intend to announce the iPhone 5 mid-September, most likely around September 12th. Pre-orders would go live, but here in the UK we’re not likely to see any new handset on our shores until at least October. 10. Secret sauce Most rumours to date have focused on hardware – as we’ve mentioned above, though, it will be the iPhone’s integration with new iOS 6 features that will really make it stand out. Claiming to be the thinnest and lightest smartphone on earth would be a great advertising slogan, but it’s how iOS features evolve with the new iPhone 5 that will be the key focus. However, don’t be surprised if Apple try and pull a few tricks out of the bag to deflate competitors. While Android phones have really advanced over the past year, they still suffer from a fragmented ecosystem, despite attempts to otherwise order it. With Google and Microsoft trying to follow Apple’s lead in the Cloud, this is one area Apple could really through the gauntlet down – not least with far more free space to backup with. wholesale accessories,iphone accessories,ipad accessories,ipod accessories
