Perhaps Apple was onto something when it set its cross-hairs on Samsung when it took the latter to court last year. Because now it turns out that two of Samsung's smartphones topped a customer satisfaction survey, beating out three Apple iPhones.
With only a few more days of waiting before Motorola and Google take the covers off their new Moto X phone, we're getting one more leak this afternoon. The device will officially be unveiled on August 1st, but below we have a leaked photo showing the size of the device in comparison to some other flagship devices, as well as the old original DROID RAZR.
If you own the Samsung Galaxy S4 or iPhone 5 and have talked about it on social networks, some new studies have used that type of data to award the GS4 a top rating. A research and analyst ground called We Are Social is talking up the Samsung smartphone, while also claiming the iPhone 5 is most hated among its users. Pretty interesting report so read on below.
T-Mobile is currently sharing the UNcarrier details, which thankfully includes a breakdown of the devices that will be available. We touched on the devices in a previous post, however it looks like T-Mobile has revealed a bit more in terms of availability and pricing details. Well pricing and availability for most of the devices anyway.
It seems that Sony must feel one of the ways to win that race for third is to begin attracting iPhone users. Well, while they haven't specifically offered that little tidbit, they have recently released an update for the PC Companion and Bridge for Mac apps -- one that is said to make it "ridiculously easy" to get your personal data off your iPhone and onto your new Xperia smartphone.
This week the rumor of a "free" iPhone release has once again been rumbling in the technology news world, complete with talk that such a (subsidized) product revealed by Apple would take a heavy toll on Android-based device sales. As a user of both Android devices and the iPhone 5, I can't say that a device like this handset (modified for its re-release) wouldn't be a massive temptation for prospective phone buyers around the world. Especially with the notion of multiple colored-cases and an even lighter and thinner unit than ever before.
At this point most realize that Android and iOS are the dominant players in the mobile world. Looking at bit more specific and in terms of Android and popularity, we are often talking about Samsung. And not only Samsung, but the Galaxy S III. In this case, Chitika, the online advertising network recently took a closer look at the amount of web traffic that was being generated between the Galaxy S III and the iPhone 5.
As of right now, Gradiente Electronica can legally sell their Android smartphone with the "iPhone" name. A court decision was made that ruled that Apple doesn't have exclusive rights to the "iPhone" trademark in Brazil. The reason for this is because Gradiente Electronica actually registered the iPhone name way back in the year 2000, 7 years before Apple claimed it.
Given the steep cost of a new smartphone, picking one that's perfect for you can be a pretty daunting task. We often turn to retailer employees when it comes time to pick a new handset, asking them for suggestions about which phone would be ideal for our lives. As it turns out, employees at some of the biggest phone retailers in the UK seem to suggest Samsung handsets over Apple's iPhone line more often.
The past few days we've been seeing financial and earnings reports from multiple big companies and today was Apple's turn. We saw Google's Q4 results yesterday breaking $14.4 billion in revenue, but today's results from Apple are huge. It's technically their Q4 2012 calender year but is listed as Q1 financials. The fruit company racked in over $13 billion in pure profit too.
