Q&A with CEO Ahmed Mansour Regarding the Gadgets Repair Franchise & Licensing

Q&A with CEO Ahmed Mansour Regarding the Gadgets Repair Franchise & Licensing

Q&A with CEO Ahmed Mansour

CEO of Gadgets Repair, Ahmed Mansour, took a few minutes to chat with Business-Opportunities.Biz about how in order to compete in the long run, Gadgets Repair had to adjust the business model, and how that move has paid off. Mansour also discusses what he looks for in potential licensees and where he sees the business headed in the next five years.

What is the idea behind Gadgets Repair?

We started as a cell phone repair business, but after seven years, competition grew around us; we had to find other sources of income related to the same technology.

How does Gadgets Repair compare to its competition?

Super-efficient, with great sources of cheap and good quality repair parts and equipment, and honest advice. We will do market research in the target area before we sell any license.

Sony Announces Xperia Z4v, A Waterproof Phone

Original story from: http://www.nextpowerup.com/news/21808/sony-announces-xperia-z4v-a-waterproof-phone/

Sony has unveiled its latest Xperia phone, the Xperia Z4v, and it will be available through Verizon Wireless this summer. The Xperia Z4v runs Android and is waterproof. Sony has included a 5.2-inch 2560 x 1440 display, 20.7-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front camera with the handset.

This handset is definitely a high-end device as it also features a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor, 32 GB of storage, microSD (up to 128 GB), and the ability to play 4K video.

Entire PS4 games can be played on the phone if a user has their console on the same WiFi network as their Xperia Z4v. The phone will be available in black or white.

Now that Sony has announced an upgraded device, one that is superior to the Xperia Z4 or Xperia Z3+, would you buy the Xperia Z4v if it were released globally?

Fairphone 2 Revealed, Shipping This Year

Original story from: http://www.nextpowerup.com/news/21802/fairphone-2-revealed-shipping-this-year/

 

The second smartphone from Fairphone has been introduced and it will begin shipping later this year. Fairphone makes "fairer" phones that are socially responsible since they avoid conflict minerals and source materials from fair trade sources. The Fairphone 2 is meant to last longer than its predecessor.

By improving the design of the Fairphone 2 and making it easy to repair, fewer upgrades should be required. The handset's display, for example, can be replaced in under a minute. A screwdriver is all that's required to repair the phone's receiver, rear camera, and speaker units.

It's not possible to have a super slim phone that's also easy to repair so Fairphone has sacrificed in some ways by making the Fairphone 2 11 millimeters thick.

The phone is also supposed to be much stronger than mainstream smartphones and it will be capable of surviving a 2 meter drop to concrete.

Fairphone has included a Snapdragon 801 processor, 5-inch Full HD display, 8-megapixel camera, 32 GB of storage, microSD, LTE, 2 GB of RAM, and Android 5.1 with the device.

Android 5.1.1 starts rolling out to the Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6

Original story from: http://www.sammobile.com/2015/06/15/android-5-1-1-starts-rolling-out-to-the-galaxy-s6-edge/

Everyone has waited a long time for this, and our patience is finally paying off as the Android 5.1.1 update for the Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6 has begun rolling out. The update is currently going out to T-Mobile users in the US; we’ve talked a lot about the update in recent weeks, and have also given our readers a look at Android 5.1.1 running on the devices. In addition to fixing a few bugs in Lollipop, the 5.1.1 update also brings a couple of new features.

These include a simplified exposure control system in the camera, a wallpaper parallax effect, and numerous changes in the user interface (like the option to remove the S Finder and Quick Connect buttons from the notifications shade.) Performance has received a boost as well. Like all software updates, this one is available over the air, through Samsung Kies, and through our firmware database.

Check out Android 5.1.1 on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in the video below, and let us know if you have received the update on your S6!

Apple has an app that helps you switch from Android to iOS

Apple has an app that helps you switch from Android to iOS

Original story from: http://knowtechie.com/apple-has-an-app-that-helps-you-switch-from-android-to-ios/

Apple never hesitates when it comes to throwing Google a low blow. Their latest assault on Google’s family jewels is a new app called Move to iOS, which will launch in the next iOS 9 rollout.

This isn’t Apples first attempt in veering Android users to iOS.  The company previously made a step-by-step guide helping Android users transfer all their digital content to an iPhone. However, this app takes it to another level.

Once the app is installed on a new iPhone, the app begins the wireless transfer process. The app handles the transfer of users’ contacts, camera photos, videos, message history, mail accounts, bookmarks, calendars, and wallpapers. It will even suggests you to download the free apps that were originally installed on your Android phone too.

To add injury to insult, the app also tells you to recycle their old Android for free at any Apple Store. Ouch.

BLU Life One (2015) And Live 8 XL Announced In The US

Original story from: http://www.nextpowerup.com/news/21700/blu-life-one-2015-and-live-8-xl-announced-in-the-us/

BLU has announced two new mid-range smartphones in the United States. Dubbed the BLU Life One (2015) and Live 8 XL, the smartphones are already available for pre-order from Amazon. The Life One will start shipping on June 19, while the Live 8 XL on July 1.

BLUE Life One (2015) features a 5-inch 720p IPS display, Snapdragon 410 chip, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage. There is a 13 MP/5 MP camera combo, dual-SIM and LTE Cat.4 support, and a 2,820 mAh battery.

The bigger Blu Life 8 XL sports a 5.5-inch 720p IPS display, MediaTek MT6592M chipset with an octa-core processor and the same amount of RAM and storage. The camera department has been slightly downgraded to an 8 MP rear and a 2 MP front cameras, while a battery is slightly larger at 2,920 mAh.

Exclusive: Galaxy S6 edge Plus will have 5.7-inch dual-edge display, Android 5.1.1

Original story from: http://www.sammobile.com/2015/06/12/exclusive-galaxy-s6-edge-plus-will-have-5-7-inch-dual-edge-display-android-5-1-1/

There’s a larger version of the Galaxy S6 edge undergoing development over in Samsung’s backyard, that much has been made certain by numerous rumors and a leak that actually showed us such a device in the flesh. Given the beauty that is the Galaxy S6 edge, these leaks have gotten us pretty interested. We reached out to our insiders to see if we could get more information on the Galaxy S6 edge Plus (as the rumors call it), and managed to dig up two important details.

First, the display. The Galaxy S6 edge Plus will have a 5.7-inch display, with curves on both sides like the Galaxy S6 edge. Rumors had pointed at a 5.5-inch display, but it looks like Samsung thinks 5.7-inch is a better size (or the company is just more comfortable with the size because of its last two Galaxy Note smartphones.) Secondly, the Galaxy S6 edge Plus will come with Android 5.1.1 preloaded out of the box – unsurprising, as anything below 5.1.1 would be totally unacceptable at this point.

The phone will launch sometime in the third quarter this year, but we have no information on a concrete launch date. As always, we’ll be sure to share any more information that we come across.

iPhone 6C: what we want to see

Original story from: http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/iphone-6c-what-we-want-to-see-1296241

 

It's looking increasingly like we'll see three iPhone models released this year, with an iPhone 6C launching alongside the inevitable iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.

While the iPhone 5C was designed purely as a more affordable iPhone, the iPhone 6C is likely to have more to differentiate it, with a smaller screen than either of the 6S models.

ADVERTISING
 

Currently the only way to get an iPhone with a 4.0-inch screen any more is to buy the 18-month old iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C, both of which may well be discontinued with the launch of the next wave of devices, especially if we do get an iPhone 6C, so it will likely be aimed both at those who want to save some money and those who want to save some pocket space.

We don't know a huge amount about the iPhone 6C yet, with most rumors focusing on the flagship 6S and 6S Plus, but we are starting to hear a few things and for everything else we've got a hefty wish list.

  • iPhone 7 release date, news and rumours

Cut to the chase

  • What is it? The replacement to the iPhone 5C
  • When is it out? Maybe July, more likely September
  • What will it cost? Hopefully not as much as the 5C

iPhone 6C news and rumors

Several different sources have spoken of an iPhone 6C, so it seems increasingly likely that it's coming, though there are still some voices of dissent.

When it does arrive it will probably have a lot in common with the iPhone 5C, as there's talk and even an image of a plastic shell.

iPhone 6C

If it does launch with a plastic body then there's no doubt that it will be cheaper than Apple's flagship phones, though how much cheaper remains to be seen.

While the iPhone 6C is expected to look a lot like the iPhone 5C it could have ever so slightly curved screen edges, like the iPhone 6 does.

It may also share some specs with the iPhone 6, as it's rumored that the colourful handset will ship with an A8 processor, though while that's at the top end now bear in mind that the iPhone 6S will almost certainly have a newer, faster chip, marking the iPhone 6C out as a lower end phone.

It's also rumoured to have NFC and Touch ID, which sould mean Apple Pay support, and of course if it launches this year it will run iOS 9. The rest of its specs are completely unknown, but there's a good chance it will borrow liberally from the iPhone 6, given that the iPhone 5C stayed very close to the iPhone 5.

What we want to see

1. Touch ID

Touch IDTouch ID arrived with the iPhone 5S

While the iPhone 5S has Touch ID, the iPhone 5C (which launched alongside it) doesn't. Two years on it's unlikely that Apple would keep it out of the iPhone 6C, but it is a worry, especially as the phone is likely to be positioned as a budget alternative to the iPhone 6S.

We really, really hope that doesn't happen though, as it's one of the best recent iPhone features and not having it would severely limit the iPhone 6C's appeal. Thankfully its inclusion has already been rumored.

2. A powerful processor

As a budget device we don't expect the iPhone 6C to match the iPhone 6S, but we hope it comes close, especially as it's likely to be the best 4-inch iPhone around.

Buyers who want a smaller phone shouldn't be overly penalised on specs so we'd like to see high-end performance from the iPhone 6C. Current rumors point to it packing the same chip as the iPhone 6, which should just about cut it.

3. A 4.0-inch screen

iPhone 5CThe iPhone 5C has a 4-inch display

While it's expected that the iPhone 6C will have a 4.0-inch screen it's not actually confirmed, but we really hope it does.

If Apple only released one iPhone size we'd want it to be the now standard 4.7-inch model, but choice is always good and we'd wager there are many Apple fans who were disappointed by the move to larger screens, so a new model with a small screen would be much appreciated.

4. A more affordable price

While the iPhone 5C was designed to be a comparatively budget option it wasn't and even now still isn't particularly cheap.

So we'd like to see the iPhone 6C be truly affordable. Perhaps not entry-level, but with a mid-range price of around £300/$400/AU$500.

5. A more premium design

iPhone 6The iPhone 6 is pretty

One of the cost cutting measures employed with the iPhone 5C was to replace the premium metal and glass builds of other iPhone models with a colourful plastic shell.

It's a solid, well-built phone, but it undeniably looks far less premium or stylish than other Apple handsets.

We'd love to see Apple not skimp on the build materials with the iPhone 6C. Of course it's very unlikely that we'll get both a premium build and a lower price, but we can dream.

6. A slim build

Given that the iPhone 6C will likely be more compact than the iPhone 6S it would be great if Apple went all out and made it simmer too, so it's truly as pocket friendly as possible.

The iPhone 5C is 9mm thick, but we'd like to see the iPhone 6C drop down to around 6.9mm thick like the iPhone 6.

7. Plenty of storage

The iPhone 5C was initially sold in several storage sizes, but it's now just available in a near useless 8GB model.

Given that Apple doesn't allow for expandable storage 16GB is the absolute minimum that we consider acceptable and even that's pushing it these days. So hopefully the iPhone 6C will be available with a range of storage capacities and if 32GB was the smallest we wouldn't complain.

8. Better battery life

The iPhone 5C has respectable battery life, but it's still a phone you'll be charging every night, so we'd like to see the iPhone 6C have longer life.

Very few phones last as long as we'd like, but we've seen from the likes of the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact that two days is possible, so we want to see that from the iPhone 6C.
