iPhone 11 and iPhone X Plus: All the rumors on specs, price, release date

Posted by on 2:45 am in Mobile Design | 0 comments

Go big or go cheap? That is the existential question Apple may tackle in 2018. The company is said to be tinkering with its 2018 iPhone lineup in an effort to goose adoption of the three models released in 2017 and three new ones reportedly coming later this year. The ultrapricey iPhone X may have dissuaded some Apple fans from upgrading — starting at $999, £999 or AU$1,579, it’s the most expensive iPhone ever — while the incremental refinements of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus may have lacked sufficient oomph to drive the masses...

Galaxy S8 Oreo roll-out proves the biggest problem with Android

Posted by on 5:00 pm in Mobile Design | 0 comments

Android is a phenomenal operating system. The open-source software allows users an unprecedented level of customisation, system-level support for third-party apps, and deep ties with Google Assistant – easily the most competent smart assistant on the market right now.

Posted by on 2:31 pm in Mobile Design | 0 comments

One of the most disturbing thing coming out of the MWC 2018 was the cloning of the iPhone X design. Many Android device makers have decided that the notch the only way to go to increase the display-to-body ratio in phones that have otherwise reached their design peak. Pretty much every major player in the Android universe can pull off all-screen smartphones with great, high-resolution, 18:9 displays. Samsung’s Galaxy S9 is one such example, the Xperia XZ2 is another. But neither model features a screen that extends to all edges like the...

While these terms are not formal terms, a common way to distinguish IoT devices from other embedded devices is by the...
