How to use WiFi calling iPhone


There's a somewhat hidden feature in iOS called WiFi Calling, which lets you use WiFi to make and receive calls and text messages instead of relying on your carrier's cellular network.

WiFi Calling is great when your iPhone is out of reach of your carrier's cell signal at home or at your workplace where you have access to WiFi, and it'll even work when you're connected to public hotspots, like at coffee shops.

PS4 games will soon be available on iPhone and Android smartphones

PS4 games will soon be available on iPhone and Android smartphones

I’m old enough to remember the first Sony Playstation, and truthfully, I freak out a bit when people tell me their first console was the PS2 or PS3. 

Those people actually consider the PS1 “retro”, which means I’m just old. But those people also missed out on some truly incredible Sony games (for that day and age, anyway). 

Those games included the PS1 versions Gran Turismo 2, Tekken 3, Metal Gear Solid, and more.

Of course those gamers who can list the PS2 and PS3 and their first console are quickly aging too. After all, it’s entirely likely that most people in today’s generation will have their first video game experience on a smartphone. Perhaps that’s why it’s so cool to hear the news that Sony has created a gaming division specifically designed to bring its Playstation titles to iOS and Android. 

Generation Smartphone will soon be able to experience the “retro” games many of us reading this grew up with. Here’s everything you need to know.

The next iPhone could have a bigger display and more battery

The next iPhone could have a bigger display and more battery

While the iPhone 8 isn’t going to be announced until September, this week has been packed with rumors on the upcoming device. And it looks like the display is going to be the main star of the show.


Rumor has it that Apple is going to announce three new devices — two new versions of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, and a new high-end device that could cost more than $1,000. And it looks like the rumors around the display are for this mysterious “iPhone Pro” model.


iOS cracking tools reportedly used by FBI released to public

iOS cracking tools reportedly used by FBI released to public
Last year, the FBI ordered Apple to help crack the iPhone 5c owned by Syed Farook, one of the shooters in the 2015 attacks in San Bernardino. Apple refused, and the FBI reportedly worked with Cellebrite, an Israeli firm that specializes in mobile security. According to a statement from Celelbrite last month, a hacker breached one of its legacy servers. Now the hacker has released some of that data as a warning to the FBI.
The data released includes code that seems to relate to Cellebrite's Universal Forensic Extraction Device (UFED), and can allegedly crack older iPhones like the 5c as well as Android and Blackberry devices.
Speaking anonymously to Motherboardthe hacker explained that simply creating these tools makes their release inevitable, where they can be used by anyone with technical knowledge, including oppressive regimes around the world.
"It's important to demonstrate that when you create these tools, they will make it out. History should make that clear," they told Motherboard.
The ReadMe files on Pastebin.
Claiming to have taken the tools from Cellebrite's own servers, the hacker says they were able to get into the encrypted files and post them on Pastebin, a popular code repository. Some of the code seems to have been lifted from publically accessible jailbreaking code, as well.
A spokesperson for the firm told Motherboard that the files did not include source code, only packaging information.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said at the time that creating this type of "backdoor" software would be "terrible for public safety."
While the currently released cracking tools do not include ways to break into current device models, the warning is clear: Once made, tools like this don't stay private for long.

4. You Leave Your Phone All Night At Charge


You Leave Your Phone All Night At Charge

it may be useful to leave your phone on overnight, but there are many who say that this is not such a good idea. The views on this issue are many, but most polls say that if your mobile phone shops are terminated and still remain connected to occur can damage the battery, with time running significantly faster. "Your battery works better when the cell from the wall socket before it is complete 100% of fee". Charging during the day to plug charging before it is fully charged.

5. You charge the battery all 100% or waits for charging of 0%



of the lithium-ion batteries are mostly used, work best when you figures between 50% to 80%, says Shane Brodsky, founder color technology, a company that produces charging devices and mobile accessories. On the other hand, if you are using your phone to charge until the battery is completely filled, it is your battery in a state of deep discharge", the ION can not to recharge, so Apple. It also adds that charging the battery for short time intervals, so simply held at normal levels (50% -80%), sufficient energy for the ion so to work continuously and to the life of the battery.

One thing you need to do now is now always your location or rights to another application to know their current position, which is also a type of security problem.

Apple’s iOS code indicates Li-Fi wireless data may work on future iPhones

iphone 6

Li-Fi is a concept you may not be familiar with, but there are indications Apple is toying with it for inclusion on future iPhones.

Using pulses of light to transmit information, Li-Fi receivers (like a future iPhone, if Apple has its way) will take in that transmission, then translate it into an electric signal.
Because it uses light to send data, Li-Fi may be found in the connected home via accessories like lightbulbs.



Apple’s work with Li-Fi compatibility has been spotted in code for iOS 9.1, which simply notes Li-Fi capabilities. There’s no indication elsewhere that Apple is working with Li-Fi.
But, there’s indication Apple has had Li-Fi in mind for a while. AppleInsider points to a 2013 patent application for a device that sounds an awful lot like a Li-Fi transmitter.
While I’m not expecting Apple to include Li-Fi in the iPhone 7 — mainly because the technology is barely being tested in the real world — it could help push Li-Fi forward by making iPhones compatible.

Apple has thought that two rear cameras on the iPhone

two rear cameras on the iPhone

one of the biggest strengths of the iPhone has long been his camera, and a new patent application from Apple shows how it could be improved still further in the future. The application first discovered by patently Apple, is obviously for a dual system of the camera on the back of your smartphone. Apple is in the foreground, at least in this patent is the photographer a way to enlarge without losing image quality.

The idea is that a camera had a wide-angle lens, the other had a much deeper focal length. Then you could switch between the two without resolution how to use digital zoom.


Both cameras could be shooting at once.


Of course there are many other ways that Apple could decide to a Dual camera system. A 3D camera is among them, but it seems unlikely, unless Apple also a 3D screen to display them. Also as a zoom system, there are more than just switching from one to the other to take photos. The patent application proposes a could be used to generate still images, while the other entries Video; Apple even imagine that the camera app could stitch the two together, with the exposures to highlight important moments. The cameras can also shoot at different speeds or different resolutions.

As always with patents, it is difficult to say how seriously considering Apple. But there were some rumble in the past on a Dual camera system on the iPhone. Apple his own opinion John Gruber mentions only over a year ago that he had heard the iPhone could adopt a "two lens system" in the future, what the camera "DSLR picture quality." At least one recent report, even if questionable truth, brings the rumor that for the iPhone 7. The idea that Apple could dramatically improve the quality of the image with a second camera still seems questionable, but give iPhone owners a way to avoid using Digital Zoom, would certainly be a way of improving the quality, even if only in certain situations.

recording iPhone Video
Andreas Rentz-Getty Images for Paramount Pictu director Michael Bay to visit the European Premiere of "Transformers: Age of extinction" in the Sony Center at 29. June 2014 in Berlin, Germany.

Check these before your family holiday get-together

many professional photographers say the best camera is the one you are carrying. If this is true, then millions of iPhone users are packaging some excellent videography gear everywhere.

But wear around your iPhone and actually capture great images with it are two different things entirely. Want to be the next J.J. Abrams? Cut some scenes with these five iPhone movie-making tips.

1. Invest in gear to enhance your images

while the iPhone the convenient location makes it ideal for the acquisition only about every moment by some hardware to your handset will mean that more polished recordings. The $59 iKlip handle helps to stabilize a shot by video filmer give something to keep. It can also be used as a tripod so that you even in the shot.

But the iKlip's small legs are no match for the extendable stems in Apple's $299 Videography Kit for iPhone 6. Consisting of a Manfrotto Compact tripod action, a tripod MeFOTO mounting adapter, a Shure digital mic and a olloclip lens (all wrapped in a tripod Incase Sling), this setup is everything that you need for a Coppola-on-the-go. But the olloclip is hardly the only objectively in the city. Moment Has both wide angle and telephoto lenses up ($99 per piece), screw on a slim bracket so that your phone not only look great, but make videos are polished and unmistakable.

2. Learn your iPhone functions and settings 

Point and Shoot? Sure you can do that. But there are better tech in your iPhone as the first spacecraft to land on the moon, so why not shoot for the sky? Each iPhone model is different and each new model improves the camera. For example, is the latest model, the iPhone 6S, has many enhancements, including the ability to shoot ultra high-res 4K-Video. But if you do not have a 4K-TV or computer, you can view to disable this feature as it will quadruple the space that your videos on your phone. The iPhone 6s Plus also offers optical image stabilization - an important supplement that helps to smooth out the restless pictures are typical for hand-held cameras, especially in low light conditions.


3. Take your best shot

there is abundant apps for the iPhone and not surprisingly many of them on the handset the size of camera. But the Camera app on the iPhone is the one most commonly used, since it is from the beginning. It is fairly easy, but there are a few tricks to learn. For example, the fastest way is to open the camera from the iPhone lock screen. If your iPhone is lit, on the bottom right of the screen you will see a lock icon camera - slide to the tip as a window shade, and they are automatically flushed into the camera. Even though the camera is a Bare-Bones app, but everything you need to make the scene in front of you. Capture video, regularly in slow-motion scenes, and time-lapse picture material, the camera can be almost everything you need. Continuous automatic tracking considers topics in focus automatically. And how many other Apps, pinching enlarges the image that you want to record.

the difference between a movie and a film is all in the processing. Everyone can videos, but taking the time to edit it then makes it great. Apple's in-house movie editing app, iMovie is a solid, easy-to-use way cut long, and merge several scenes. But serious case, the $4.99 App is all about transitions (this stylish faded and lost between the scenes) which is great but there is so much more to edit. For example, Best of 2015 app video shop ups ante (for only $1.99), allowing users to add music, sound effects and voice output, as well as creating slow, fast motion, or even reversed videos. Such as iMovie, you can also use graphics or apply filters. For those who have no time to sew a series of shorter clips, real times will do it for you in the background. The free app is to scrape off the recordings, curating a collection of photos and ready-to-watch clips that automatically cut off, filtered and framed for your display (and share) to the pleasure.

5. Share the love

all the above applications can share recordings on your favorite social networking and photo/video sharing sites in a jiffy. But there are also other possibilities, your videos that you might not have thought. For example, almost as long as the Internet was in order, the people have a good GIF. Giphy cam, you can create your own short looping video by dragging media from your recording or recording a fresh take directly from your camera. Meme it with a confused Vincent Vega, 8-bit sunglasses or a pair of unicorns and Rainbow and you have a modern masterpiece.

For a more serious on sharing, periscope, Apple App of the year, will live stream your video feed to the huddled masses of the Internet. It is more about breaking news and hot takes as art, but it is an interesting way to share your memories anyway. Is your daughter competing in figure skating national championships? Periscope, Scene and save grandma the cost of a cross-country flights. Remarkable is that this is the only time you should use video with your phone in upright position. Streaming video services such as periscope were observed on mobile phones, so that a portrait shot is in order. But all the other video should be rotated sideways, because this is how the computer, television and film images are set up.

And speaking of television, warehouse a great free video and photo sharing application and it has an excellent Apple TV app, it is a joy to see Home Videos home again. A stylish collage of your best memories, warehouse mixes photos with videos to save all the angle of a reminder. And is it not the point of all this recording options, anyway?

Apple's swift programming language is now open source and has its own website

Apple's swift programming language is now open source and has its own website

Apple had until the end of the year in order to make good swift open source, and now it has. The language, together with his compilers, libraries and debugger are all open source.

Swift was released under the Apache 2.0 license, which means that the developers can use as you like - even in commercial products. It supports iOS, OS X and Linux.

Getting started with the swift as an Open Source project, Apple also has its own website: swift.org. It developers will find everything you need to get started with swift for own projects, such as the technical documentation and links to the source code, what Apple is hosting on GitHub.

Apple's swift programming language is now open source


Swift.org also holds information about what Apple is currently planning to do with swift 3, including API guidelines and where Issue Tracking will take place. Questions and comments are best about swift.org, while contributions to the language should be on GitHub. Apple is the treatment of Swift's site as a "home of the product."

GitHub head of Open Source, Brandon Keepers, said: "With the open-source version of swift on GitHub, Apple brings its modern programming language to the world's largest development of the Community. We welcome the rapid and can not wait to see what the GitHub community builds."

"The more 'open', which has to do with Apple, the more difficult it is for people to identify 'Closed' or discuss "walled gardens", says Patrick Moorhead, president and principal analyst for Moor insights and strategies. "Through the opening of the swift, Apple could now 100s of thousands more programrs to improve the code, this could really help in IoT applications in which tiny changes are really important. Apple has a pretty good track record with open related WebKit and LLVM, i.e. during the success is not guaranteed, the company is really good."

In the production of the open source language, seems Apple simply wants everyone to use Swift. At the core of what swift is now only be integrated on each system without jump through a series of obstacles. Apple has keep much of IT platform features like CloudKit, HomeKit and Scen kit closed, but this is only an Apple developer account.

It will be interesting to see where an open source Swift. Apple ResearchKit is already open source, as WebKit, the rendering engine that powers of Safari.

The 10 best smartphone you can buy now

pick the best smartphone in the world is always a) incredibly hard and b) super fun. Fortunately. Since this is an iOS-centric site, you expect a Apple iPhone with the number 1 and they were right. But this is not sycophantic - in my other life as a producer and presenter of the phones show I do regularly top 5 features - and an iPhone is always in the top, because it is a top specced telephone, can be recommended as a response to the question "What should I buy a phone" without real precautions or possible recriminations. There are multiple iPhones here, plus more Android units, of course. And I would like to still stuck in one of the new flagship Lumias, with the exception that you still have a week away. Maybe next time.

Oh yes, and its rules of procedure. It would be a bit crazy to allow multiple iPhones in the exact same form factor in the top 10. So I do not allowed me to have both the "6s" and "6", for example. Ditto for the '6s Plus". It would be almost as bad as so that all the various storage variations! And I am not about colors and some of the Android phones are variations of one type or other - for the Top 10, reason will prevail!

As the criteria for the Top 10, it raw functionality, style and a solidly built, it is well supported software, flexibility and to a certain degree, value. But I have not let money cut too far - after all, almost every Android flagship is £200 cheaper a year (and sometimes even six months down the road), so if something is too expensive, then you just have to be patient! The prices for the Apple Iphone, of course, rarely change - but the helps at the other end of the property at the time of sale, in accordance resale value high.

10. Samsung Galaxy Note 4

starting with the Samsung Galaxy note 4, by some way the oldest smartphone in the top 10 but with very good reason. You can see that it is the last one of the "classical" Galaxy Reference line with the flexibility to many tendons: top specs all laps with replaceable battery and microSD expansion. With a device such as a note, it is a professional tool that needs with which you through thick and thin and i lost, the number of owners (including me) the note II., 3. and 4. Devices that are several batteries replace in a long and hard day. Yes, the industry seems to be floating in the direction of the sealed devices, a charge led in the last seven years from Apple but plug-in not charging devices, but good, non-game from 0% to 100% in 30 seconds by surcharges in a battery, made from a bag.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Away from the flexibility angle, the note 4 was the era of the QHD screen resolution, 3GB RAM, OIS and 4K video capture to a phone features, since more and more frequently. With the improved pin also the Note 4 had the game in the form of checklists geek. Heck, you can even clip on a qi-laden back to this as well.

9. Samsung Galaxy S6

Love 'em or hate 'em, than with the note 4 above that you cannot ignore the Samsung Galaxy range and the S6 (and his 'Edge' version, also shown below) a reboot from the appalling plas ticky (think of the elasto-plastic back?) The Galaxy S5 - a very decent phone in a $10 plastic housing. That Samsung decided to jet ison the replaceable battery and expandable memory as part of the reboot is regrettable (the latter will probably go for the S7 in the next year), but on the bright side we are now discussing a slim, iPhone-Style Metal unibody design, absolutely sees the part in 2015.

Comes for the ride is a surprisingly good camera, with OIS as in note 4 above, but further refined. The allied QHD AMOLED display, the S6 is something like an imaging power package. Touchwiz remains a bit annoying, but many of its features are really useful (e.g. hide applications in the App Drawer that you do not use) and at least some of the Samsung bloat is now preventable.

Better still, the fingerprint scanner now works properly, in contrast to the parody of the "5" indicates the full Qi and PMA wireless charging, plus the price of the S6 has fallen dramatically since the market introduction - there is not much cheaper than it is now and a good price-performance ratio.

8. Apple iPhone 5s,

what on earth is a 2013 Smartphone do in this mix? Good question. It is all about the form factor and features. Not everyone wants a great phone and most of the devices on this page have a screen that is 5.2 or greater. Excellent for playback of media and surf the web, but not so good when it comes to property and on the smartphone with one hand and not so good for tucking it unobtrusively into any pocket. Add the Apple Design 2014/2015 language (You can see the 6s below, don't worry), which is the form factor is all curves and there are still many fans of the straight-sided aluminum design that came with iPhone 5. (i would go so far that the steel version (4/4s) two years previously was more evident, but thicker and also had the glass back that most users ended devastating.)

Apple iPhone 5s

So, with the admittedly subjective point of view that the iPhone 5 Design is the 'best', in terms of compactness and pure density of the technology that is obviously a to plump for the iPhone 5s. This is the version with fast internals, much better camera (larger pixels to a larger aperture, "True Tones" dual-LED flash) and fingerprint sensor integrates the home key, all relative to the iPhone 5. For everything to do with security and authorisation (e.g. Apple pays), then the 5S is the starting point in the Apple iPhone family. And in contrast to the rule about Apple in the rule is not the lowering of prices, the 5S has in fact come down, all new, from £549 to £379 in the UK in the meantime two years. It is the cheapest way to get a fully functional new iPhone now. It is also generally available second hand, if the price is really a problem

7. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

another Samsung - that the three in the Top 10! There is a real 'wow' factor on the Samsung Galaxy edge (and yes, the small letter "e" is the official!) designs - held in the hand and especially artily photographed in dim room(!), they are breathtaking. In daily use, the phone is essentially identical to the galaxy S6 above, of course, and many of the same advantages and disadvantages, except that this is beautiful.

And great, I have the conveyor belt for the newer 'Edge' - it was against the rules to both variants have exactly the same size of the telephone and if you go all funny and have a curved front and flat back then why not everything in the form factor? The edge has a 5.7" screen by pushing it firmly into the "phablet' category, but without the stylus. But you do not need one, so again…. Why not?


Camera, processor, resolution, charging options, everything follows the established Galaxy S6 Pattern - the only exit is the welcome addition of an extra gigabytes of RAM - Samsung TouchWiz on QHD shielded devices too little was shown on a regular basis. This top of the line round - and also to purchase top dollar - but you knew that already, correct?

6. Sony Xperia Z5

after numerous redesigns and design iterations that we finally have the ultimate Sony Xperia - and it is a good "un. Beautiful design, excellent materials, a full 5.2" 1080p screen, a killer, camera and, crucially, 3GB RAM, whereas in the previous Xperias (and even the Z5 Compact) had to make do with 2GB. This makes all the difference in terms of performance and future security.*

* there is now also a Z5-premium, available in the next week or two, but this is much more expensive and has a crazy over-the-top 800 ppi screen - this is only appeal to foreign peoples with advanced vision as a mere human…

Sony Xperia Z5

the other internals impress - Front-mounted stereo speakers, 'super sampling' camera and an excellent site fingerprint scanner. I quibble about the lack of qi charge, but then the Z5 supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 so that it is certainly not a deal breaker. The light of the nature of Sony Skin Android, the super power saving options (two days to a fee should be attainable), and the relative resistance to dust and water, all make the Z5 is a very good choice.

5. LG G4

there is an argument that the LG G4 is loaded with a heavy proprietary skin that there is too much plastic that is too expensive (it is not more, 6 months down the road, although) that the control keys are in the wrong place (on the rear side, but you do get used to them) that it… LG. But the company would come well in recent years and the G4 marks the point at which the technology as shoehorned in was impressive to ignore.

LG G4

LG was one of the companies defends QHD resolution screens and in the G4 there is also a completely new level of expertise in the areas of imaging, with detail even in low-light conditions, the excellent, thanks to the next generation of OIS, laser autofocus, a special 'color spectrum sensor' and a relatively large f/1.8 aperture. Also six months after its introduction, the competition has not yet caught up - if smartphone photography is your thing, then look no further.

LG G4 back

General specifications are also super, with a perfectly pitched Snapdragon 808 (no overheating) and 3GB of RAM plus some unique features in the 2015 Smartphone Flagship Canon - replaceable battery and microSD expansion - this is the flexible phone, Samsung owner of the past (and even the note 4 above) might want to gravitate. That the rear covers come in a variety of textures including Genuine leather) adds additional interest to an already impressive smartphone

4. Google Nexus 6P


Google Nexus 6P

Nexus 6P is the perfect…premium Nexus always released by Google since the foundation of the brand. After the use of potato camera for years on the Nexus smartphones, Google has finally get around to give what Android users have wanted for eons: Nexus a smartphone with a large camera and build quality. The aero grade aluminum chassis of the 6P exudes quality, although it is probably not necessarily survive a bend test.


The Nexus Imprint fingerprint scanner is located on the rear side is super fast and precise, while the front stereo speakers to play media on the 6P a joy to use. The iPhone 6s Plus may be better than the Nexus 6P in many aspects, but there are a few areas in which Apple can take some of the suggestions from the latter for the iPhone 7.

3. Apple iPhone 6S

Apple's challenge in 2014 was to come up with a way to bring much larger screens in the iPhone is a line-up that matching what Android world had been doing for years. A larger version of the existing aluminum unibody design would have been too heavy and would have felt "too large" in the hand, so Jony Ive and his team placed for curved edges rounded corners and a thinner profile as a whole. This meant that a 4.7" display (from 4") could be achieved with only 17g more weight. Finally the iPhone section could stand high with the best Android in the form factor and expectations.

The iPhone 6 has been a bestseller, of course, but the durability issues showed that Apple had perhaps diluted from aluminum just a little too much, plus another year of development enables the 6s, published a few months ago, have a faster internals, an even better camera again to an even faster Fingerprint Sensor, and - yes - more aluminum where it counts to the improvement of the robustness.

Apple iPhone 6s

The biggest innovation for the 6s was the addition of an additional screen layer, the introduction of 3D-touch" in the world, a way of adding peek and pop pressure-driven gestures in the iOS interface. It is early days in the application support for this technology, but it is show promise - see my full review for more details

2. Samsung Galaxy Note 5

Note 5 is a strange animal, but enormously high end as you would expect from the original phablet range, the Samsung used to test and showcase their latest technologies. And yes, the still includes an intelligent pin, here is better than ever. The 5.7"-QHD AMOLED display is breathtaking, the exynos processor and 3GB of RAM to produce super power, the camera is even better than in the galaxy S6 series mentioned (even if not completely on the G4's level), the structure is completely out of metal and glass - and in any case premium. Shaped curves around the pages (on the rear) make the phone easier to maintain than in previous Galaxy notes.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5

The fishing, as is well known, that the traditional note replaceable battery and customer support for the expansion card is… gone. With the aim of the restart of the banknote series as a premium design - hey, it even comes, as shown here in an iPhone-esque 'pink gold'! This is a problem for hardcore fans note, but then you can stick to the note 4, mentioned above, and are almost as a stellar experience so that maybe everyone at the end wins.

It makes little sense to chatter by further specifications, since the Note 5 has the lot to Qi or PMA wireless charging, depending on the market. And it is the market itself, is the limitation of note 5 now, because it is not officially available in large pieces of the world, including the United Kingdom, where this humble author lives.

1. Apple iPhone 6s Plus

with 5.5" screen option, Apple opens up the world of the iPhone to a whole range of new experiences. The "phablet" (Phone Tablet!) have been market expansion for a few years and the iPhone 6 plus was a great success, so iPhone owners are you into a world of glorious 1080p media and high resolution renders web page with absolutely zero load on the eyes. And as for the 6-to- 6S, 6s Plus accepts the new installations, the better camera, the faster a fingerprint scanner and the 3D-Touch functionality. Oh and the 6s Plus is also a much stronger, with the original 6 Plus, have been the most at risk from "miscreant bend-gate' antics.

Apple iPhone 6s Plus

But the size is only a part of the 6 Plus proposition and the same applies for 6s Plus. In addition to the higher resolution and superior OIS-camera, iOS itself works differently - almost everything (including the Home screen system) now works in landscape format to match a larger telephone, you may want to use in this way, for the viewing of media or, as shown below, for getting things done, with the help of a Bluetooth keyboard:

Apple iPhone 6s Plus Bluetooth keyboard

With an iPhone 6s Plus in this manner is eye-opening - not, you may want to iOS in this way on a phone all the time, but to know that it is possible and only on the 6 Plus and 6s Plus is only really very cool.

The larger size plus the additional aluminum for the strengthening, plus the 3D slices touch, they all have an influence on the weight, but it is worth it. This is a solid and large lumps in each case, but also a really capable of mini tablet computer, disguised as a mere "telephone". This and have to be proud of.
