Poll Results: Samsung Galaxy S6 is the phone of the year 2015

best smartphone 2015

Samsung Galaxy S6 is the phone of the year 2015, 

elected by them - our readers. In what can only be described as a victory, the Korean flagship garnered a third of all the votes and its position was at no time in each game.

We observed a close race for the second place but, and despite the Sony Xperia Z5's Early Advantage, the Apple iPhone 6s picked up some speed later on and eventually won over. At the end they were the two split of slightly over 1%.

The LG G4 placed fourth at a considerable distance behind the podium. 1 of 10 voters took him as your phone of the year, but this is not a bad result when you think about it. We had expected more from the Microsoft Lumia 950 and its 8% will come as a bit of a surprise, because the iconic Lumia brand and its cult.

The LG Nexus 5X, Huawei P8 and HTC One M9 Supreme camera can only be for a "also-ran" badge, if such were awarded. And while the Taiwanese entry is a bit dark and Huawei is yet to be established correctly as the brand to produce true flagships (under his name), a mere 4% of LG Nexus 5X are perhaps the biggest disappointment in our phone of the year 2015 competition.

phone of the year 2015

Stay tuned for round two of our annual survey, where we will give you a chance to vote for the largest and most dangerous in the business to determine the winner of the title of the year Phablet 2015.

Nokia C1 smartphone leaks again, could you two operating systems: Android and Windows 10 mobile

The alleged Nokia C1 Smartphone has made its way back online

Two smartphone operating systems

New Leaked images claim to show the alleged Nokia C1, reveals two operating systems for the unannounced handset: Android and Windows 10 mobile.

The elusive Nokia C1 leaked multiple so far, but it has yet to materialize and its formal debut. No official information available on the device, so that what we have so far on the alleged Nokia C1, including the latest leaked rendering, is still in the rumor condition. That said, Take everything with a grain of salt.

The picture above is from Nokia Power Users (NPU), the claims that it is the first time it has information from the owner in question. The publication also shows that there can be no guarantee of the authenticity of the work.

While the alleged Nokia C1 has expired in the past, the new rendering is particularly interesting because it shows two operating systems off of the handset. Earlier reports indicated a Android-powered Nokia C1, but the new image also shows a Windows 10 mobile version of the smartphones (seen on the right side behind the Z-launcher).

"Nokia brings Android Route, which we have heard, because it allows you to use the Z launcher as OS-UI level. While the render has Android version with Z Launcher UI, it looks like a nice concept as a real deal", NPU further points from.

As a reminder, Microsoft Nokia mobile unit a while back and the Finnish company is still bound by an agreement with Microsoft, which prevents it from the release of any new phone until next year. As soon as this agreement expires in the year 2016, however, Nokia will be able to return to the market for smartphones. At the same time it is worth mentioning that the deal ends in the fourth quarter of next year, so perhaps it is not until 2017 that we actually see a new Nokia smartphone on the market.

In this sense, the Render seems even more confusing. The possibility of a new Nokia C1 smartphone with two operating systems or come in two versions, each with a different OS, is not too unlikely but it is still too early to know what for sure. The design of the new leak also distinguishes itself from the design, the previously leaked, particularly if it is the location of the cameras.

He is still pretty bleak for now, but more information should come to light soon enough if the Finnish company is in fact work on a Nokia C1. In the meantime, a healthy degree of scepticism is recommended.

Researchers have taken a step towards more flexible devices by fabricating a thin film that keeps her even when very curved electric and magnetic properties useful.

Flexible electronics have been difficult to manufacture because many materials with useful electronic properties tend to be rigid.

Researchers have addressed this problem by taking small pieces of material such as silicon and embedded in the flexible plastic.

A team of physicists and engineers from South Korea took the same approach with bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3) - one of the most promising materials whose properties can be controlled with a magnetic field, and vice versa.

These materials are called multiferroic and attract interest for applications such as energy efficient, instant-on computing.

The researchers synthesized bismuth ferrite nanoparticles and mixed in a polymer solution. The solution was dried in a series of steps at increasing temperatures to produce a thin, flexible film.

When the researchers tested the electrical and magnetic properties of the film they found that their new material did much more than preserving the useful properties of bismuth ferrite more - it actually made them better.

And the improved properties are maintained even when the film curled into a cylindrical shape.

"Bulk bismuth ferrite is crucial problems for some applications, such as a high leakage current hampering strong electrical properties," said YoungPak Lee, a professor at Hanyang University in Seoul, South Korea.

Mixed bismuth ferrite nanoparticles in an improved polymer leakage current problem, he said, and gave the film, flexible tensile properties.

Flexible Multiferrorics could allow new portable devices such as surveillance equipment health or virtual reality attire, Lee said.

The multiferroric materials could be used in high density, energy efficient memory and switches on these devices, he said.

The research was published in the journal Applied Physics Letters.

iPhone 7 Release Date Rumors

If we look back in history iPhone release date of the latest Apple, we realize that the most likely release the iPhone 7 in a special event to be held in September 2015. Last year, there were some rumors say that the iPhone 6 will be released in April or May 2014, which did not happen, so we are confident that Apple will not release any iPhone in April / May 2015. for now, there is every chance that the iPhone 7 is released in September 2015.

iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 Design

Both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus comes with a major change in design of its predecessor, the iPhone 5S, so we're pretty sure that Apple will work on the design of this upcoming device. However, whether to launch an "S" version of the iPhone 6 design will most likely be the same as the previous design iPhone.

Turning on the iPhone in July, this device is rumored that a 4.7inch screen, an aluminum chassis rounded and very likely a very thin profile, which attract a lot of fans. As for the colors, the device will most likely come in Slate Grey, Silver and Gold. The iPhone 7 will probably lighter and stronger than before, because the device is rumored to come with a sapphire crystal. However, it seems there are rumors that this upcoming device will go on sale with a larger screen. Consistent with the Chinese website MacX, iPhone 7 really will be released with a 5-inch screen.

iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 features and specifications

The next iPhone 7 will most likely come with a faster processor, like the M9 and A9. As for the camera, chances will be improved, but it is rumored that features like wireless charging and better battery life are in this iPhone in July.

Apple finally think the next iPhone update 7 in terms of RAM. It is expected that the iPhone 7 to deliver 2 GB of RAM (LPDDR4). Samsung will most likely be the main supplier of Apple A9 processor, as they have made a new 14 nanometer process, you will be able to make them smaller, more powerful and efficient.
 

iPhone 7

iPhone 7 screen sidewall? Will this be Apple's answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge?


New rumors about the iPhone 7 say the device displays more likely edge feature is that in response to the current Galaxy Note Edge. Rumor has it that the next iPhone 7 will have a display which runs on the sides, which can be used in some features like: slide to unlock, messaging reading, system controls, control music player and much more.

We believe this will be a great feature to the next device is added, but otherwise they should consider is the screen resolution.

iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 Camera

One of the most important improvements that Apple could bring to the next iPhone 7 would the camera. There are rumors that the iPhone 6 successor will feature a 21MP camera with double lens, allowing you to use the optical zoom capabilities and make great features in low-light.

iPhone 6S / iPhone 7: Touch ID display

The iPhone 7 will come with a fingerprint feature Touch ID display, which will most likely eliminate the "Start" button that is currently located in the iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus and many other older models. This would give Apple the opportunity to come, even with a larger screen on your next device without changing its height.

Are Smartphones Making Wearable Fitness-Trackers Extinct?

Are Smartphones Making Wearable Fitness-Trackers Extinct?

Fitness Trackers, such as the Fitbit or jaw, are the most popular for those health conscious accessories, but its days may be numbered.


 Many next-generation smartphones are shipping with the ability to follow steps, calories, heart rate and more, which industry experts say could make the followers of fitness obsolete.

New phones from Samsung, as the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 come with S Health, an application Fitness- and health monitoring that has all the capabilities of a crawler based on the wrist.


LG has a similar application, LG Health, on your phone G3, and smartphone maker HTC has partnered with Fitbit in its latest flagship phone, the M8, which provides users with fitness-tracking functions like.

The tracker fitness business is booming and is now a $ 330 million industry. With the features of these devices become accessible to everyone with a smartphone, that number will continue to grow, says Pankaj Kedia, senior director of product management for Qualcomm, manufacturer of processors, sensors and other cellular components. "Fifteen percent of American consumers currently use a portable device like a watchband or smart adequacy" he says. "As mobile devices continue to add new features and services, [the industry] will continue to attract consumers."

But as more and more smart phones have these characteristics, experts predict that wearable could go the way of the dodo, since most consumers prefer to eliminate redundancies and do all their business in one device. Especially a device they already own.

Phones now trace the steps and calories with the same precision of followers watches, making them attractive to people who are simply trying to quantify how much they move during the day - the vast majority of users, says Ritu Agarwal, who heads the information systems from the University of Maryland. But for athletes and serious runners, there is no replacement for followers of traditional bracelet - yet.

"Some professional riders want to measure your heart rate while running" it, which can only be achieved with the use of accessories heart rate belt that often come with these followers says; sensors for smartphones, meanwhile, need quiet to get an accurate reading. Still, says Agarwal, "these are the temporary restrictions Smartphone manufacturers are addressing proactively."

The largest manufacturers of smartphones problem must be resolved before dethroning wearable is the battery life, Kedia said. A Fitbit can go for a week without pay. A UP jaw can last up to 14 days. However, even the smartest smartphones need to be charged every two days. "The capabilities fitness tracking smartphones require fast and reliable connectivity to synchronize and enable functions such as navigation to monitor execution and provide real-time updates on their progress to social networks," he says. "It's a challenge to do that, keeping your battery alive."

As the battery life improves, Agarwal anticipates that these phone features will become more popular and drip models cheaper phones. However, instead of stripping wearable their physical status tracker choice of title, Agarwal expects smart phones and wearable learn to work together to produce the next best products. "Right now the common opinion is that they are separate devices," she says, "but there is no reason to make them that way."

Kedia agrees, adding that they carry an important attribute that smartphones just can not compete with - their small size. "People will use a combination of smart phones and portable devices for optimum experience," he says. "Wearable Fitness Trackers are often an extension of the smartphone, but allow you to enjoy step tracking and other important functions without having to hold the phone out every time."

While it may be cumbersome having to hold the phone endlessly with a device perched on his wrist lets you view the statistics you want just a touch. "The wearable devices offer instant and continuous, hands-free access to the most relevant personalized information" Kedia said, "that empowers us with more efficient and effective management of our daily life in a way forms [that] we can not mimic a smartphone because portability ".

But perhaps the greatest reward this struggle between mobile and wearable deliver is new and improved technologies, says Agarwal. Devices Watch, for example, are equipped with additional sensors that monitor heart rate and other statistics that mobile no, says while some of the newer devices are now combining the best of both worlds. "Portable Trackers today usually need a phone to connect to the cloud, or a safety device on a PC," she says. "But the new products are released by Samsung, Microsoft and Apple are blurring the distinction between a tracking device and a smartphone. Now we just have to see who the winners in this competitive market will be".
