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.

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.

Android M (6.0) – 10 New Features We Love

Original story from: http://www.pocketmeta.com/android-m-6-0-10-new-features-love-27683/

Android M, the next version of Google’s mobile OS was recently highlighted during the company’s I/O event and it sure packs an awesome set of goodies. You might just ditch that antiquated device you’ve been holding on to for way too long once you see what it has to offer.

 

It’s true that each new Android update has brought improvements but 6.0 will come with some groundbreaking new features that will take the smartphone experience to a whole new level and make this ecosystem even more popular than it already is.

 

With that said, here are our favorite 10 features Android M brings to the table. There are certainly more than the ones listed below, but we had to pick, and we do love being picky!

 

App Drawer

 

Android M - App Drawer

 

Everyone already knows the app drawer so let’s just get this one out of the way first. Actually, you can even get it on older Android versions right now, unless you’re already rocking Android M Preview on your Nexus device.

 

The app drawer introduces vertical scrolling and displays apps alphabetically. Because it simply makes sense, at the top you will see the last four apps you downloaded and there’s also a much needed search bar. Perhaps, before or sometime after the official launch of Android M, the folks at Google might just let us customize those 4 apps.

 

Android Pay & Fingerprint Support

 

Android M - Android Pay

 

Android Pay is Google Wallet’s replacement and it will be preloaded in Android M – for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile users.

 

It supports all major payment methods and it lets you purchase via apps and NFC terminals. It’s already supported by American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover and it will be available in over 700,000 stores in the U.S.

 

Android Pay will also have support for fingerprint reader, altough you’ll only be able to make use of it, if your device comes with a finger scanner. Furthermore, you’ll also be able to use fingerprint authentication to verify Play Store purchases as well as unlock your device.

 

Direct Share

 

Android M - Direct share

 

This new capability can be implemented by devs through a set of new APIs. These allows them to add granular sharing options, but it also means the feature is not built into the OS, and may or may not be supported on a per app basis.

 

Thanks to direct share you could, for example see a list of people you frequently share stuff with in your favorite chat app and from then on, share more items quickly via these icons. Like I already said, the feature can be implemented in a variety of apps, although it will ultimately be the developer’s decision.

 

In the end, any app that has content worth sharing could benefit from this capability. Hopefully, developers will see the potential and implement it, so we’ll benefit from direct share in more than just a few random apps.

 

Doze

 

Android M - Battery

 

We’re really excited about this one. Doze is a smart feature that harnesses the power of your device’s sensors, detecting when it hasn’t been moved for a long amount of time. Once this condition is met, it automatically shuts down processors and disables various services such as network access and WiFi.

 

While ‘doze’ is active, it will however perform regular scans for updates and new messages. You might already suspect the most important effect brought by this feature – increased battery life, and a lot of it! According to Google, they tested Doze on a Nexus 9 and it managed to double the device’s battery life.

 

Now on Tap

 

Android M - Now On Tap

 

Google Now integration becomes much more powerful with Now on Tap. Based on what you’re viewing on your screen, this virtual assistant offers contextual information plus it lets you ask non-specific questions since it already knows what you’re talking about. Say you’ve been listening to Rihanna’s latest hit and you can’t remember what was the first song that made her popular. You can ask your question without having to mention her name – the assistant already knows you’re referring to her.

 

Now on Tap also lets you, for example, tap on an image of a personality and learn more about him or her, tap on a movie’s name to get its IMDB profile and other similar information Google Now already provides, but with far less steps to get to it.

 

Google says Now on Tap is only in its infancy right now, and we’ll see it leveraging the in-app context even more in the coming months.

 

App Permissions

 

Android M - App permissions settings

 

Installing apps right now from Google Play can be really confusing at least when it comes to the initial app permissions screen. Besides the fact it usually shows a laundry list of app permission requests, users get no control over them. It’s pretty much a ‘take it or leave it’ kind of deal.

 

In Android M things are going to be so much different. App permissions are grouped into 8 categories such as Camera, Contacts, Location, Phone, SMS and so on. an installed app will ask permission to access one of these categories the first time it actually needs to use it. Thus no more outrageous permission requests we can’t control. Moreover, you get to see the complete list of apps that can access all of the 8 areas of your phone and enable/disable any of them whenever you want.

 

Uninstall Apps on the Homescreen

 

Android M - Uninstall apps on home screen

 

Hurrah for this one! Finally we’ll be able to simply long press any app on Android M’s homescreen and uninstall it or just remove its shortcut. No more separate actions for removing the shortcut and then scrolling through the app drawer to actually find the app and uninstall it.

 

A really simple feature, that Android users really needed – better late than never!

 

Dark Theme

 

Android M - Dark theme

 

I can easily tolerate a lot of white on my desktop, but on phones and tablets not so much. I also hear the same from most other people. A lot of apps offer dark themes as a premium feature, so I guess I’m not mistaken on this one.

 

Android M will offer a dark theme for all its settings and menus – besides going easy on the eyes, darker colors can save battery on AMOLED displays. It even has an ‘automatic’ mode that uses the dark theme only at night and the white color scheme during the day.

 

Sadly, the app drawer remains white regardless which theme you are using and for now, there are no other theme colors, although hopefully there will be soon.

 

RAM Manager

 

Android M - RAM manager

 

Time to geek out! The new RAM manager will show extra information – compared to what Android Lollipop shows. You’ll be able to see both current and recent RAM usage for each app and the slider at the top shows the recently used RAM with a rating.

 

Because visual is always better than numbers the light green bar you can see displayed for each app in the image above shows the maximum RAM used recently by the app and the dark green one is its current average memory footprint.

 

USB Type C

 

Android M - USB Type C Plugin Options

 

USB Type-C is not exactly mainstream, but we just can’t help ourselves to be excited thinking of its potential. Also, the fact Google already implemented support for it, means the new port will become the new standard sooner than you might think.

 

When two devices connect via USB Type-C a menu will appear, letting the user select the type of connection. Besides photo transfer and regular charging you’ll also be able to use the device for MIDI input or to charge another device.

 

While it wouldn’t make sense to use your phone as a power supply for your laptop you could hand over some juice to another phone or a camera battery, as well as use a device with a bigger battery to charge yours. We love the flexibility offered by this feature and it can surely be a life saver every now and then.

 

These are our top 10 favorite features of Android M. Some choices were hard, and we were definitely subjective at times. We’re looking forward to seeing the official version and perhaps other new features may appear until then.

Dorel 2, a feature phone with dual-SIM and waterproof case

In the smartphone world more and more energy is dedicated to creating a better gadget that has many more features than previous models and that can do all kind of things that you never had thought a phone might do. Indeed, this is a great thing for us as users but don’t you ever get the feeling that you would love to return to a simple and classic phone that is not really focused on getting all features into one simple phone and does a great job with them.

Well, we really took this thing into consideration and we did manage to find a new phone that combines an interesting look with basic features and the result is a great one too. A fun to use and friendly phone that really looks different.

UTOK has completed its range of mobile phones with Dorel 2. The first feature phone model in the company, offer a simple and practical housing design of “candy bar” and IP68 certification, adapted to provide adequate protection in work environments contrary to the usual electronic equipment. The phone UTOK Dorel 2 is guaranteed to withstand shocks caused by drops of up to one meter and immersion in water depths of up to 3 meters.

 

UTOK Dorel 2 focuses on communication, 2000 mAh battery providing generous autonomy up to 15 hours talk time and up to 330 hours operation in standby mode. So yea, you don’t need to make any complaints regarding the autonomy part. You do get a lot of time when it comes to using the phone and to charging it back doesn’t take much time either. And if we really think at this aspect many other phones do not really manage to survive more than 15 hours, Dorel UTOK 2 you have our gratitude for this thing.

Officials declared that “Dorel UTOK 2 is our first foray into feature phones and is the solution for those who make phone calls and full safety on top”. Therefore, Dorel UTOK 2 provides IP68 protection standard, the most powerful of the current range UTOK, and a battery that provides up to 7 days of use. In addition, Dorel UTOK 2 is equipped with Dual SIM technology, with coverage on all frequencies currently used by mobile operators. We believe that simplicity and the increased protection offered by Dorel UTOK 2 will be the perfect phone for customers with the most demanding working conditions, “said Cristina Bartan, Marketing Manager UTOK.

Hard plastic casing accommodates a screen with a resolution of 176×220, torch easy to use, the micro USB connector is protected with a tight lid, internal micro SD slot for additional memory. The equipment list is complemented with an FM radio, 0.3MP camera, Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity respectively for use with wireless accessories.

Should we really trust the quality of such a phone? The answer is obviously yes just look at it, you do get the sensation that it can survive to any damage. From now on, you do not need to think too much when such a scenario happens because you know for sure that nothing will happen to it.

The features are really ok for this low price phone. It really has all the basic stuff, micro SD slot a decent camera and Bluetooth connection. But if you are the kind of person that likes to spend hours on the internet and browse all kind of stuff you might not enjoy this thing too much because UTOK Dorel 2 misses and WIFI connection. But consider this phone a perfect occasion to escape the more and more demanding social media life. When you use this phone you might see it as a pause, getting yourself out of the system.

So yea as you can see UTOK Dorel 2 is indeed a simple phone overall but because it does offer you all the basic features and because it really looks great from our point of view this might be a great choice if you were looking for something simple to use and fun at the same time.

Sony May Be Planning To Roll Out Xperia Z4 Globally Next Week

Sony May Be Planning To Roll Out Xperia Z4 Globally Next Week

Original story from: http://www.techrez.com/sony-may-be-planning-to-roll-out-xperia-z4-globally-next-week/

Several reports coming out from Asian media suggest the Japanese tech giant will hold a press confrence next week in Tiawan on Wednesday, May 27. This has promoted several speculations that Sony could start rolling out the Xperia Z4 globally from next week.

 

Sony Xperia Z4 had a relatively low-profile launch in Japan last month. Some tech pundits believe the international model of Xperia Z4 would be named Xperia Z3 Plus. The Xperia Z4 will be marketed internationally as Xperia Z3+ and have basically have the same hardware with 5.2-inch display, 64-bit octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal memory, 20.7 MP primary camera, 5 MP Selfie camera and 2930mAh battery.

 

Xperia C4 and Xpera Z4 table are also expected at the press conference according to reports.

 

On the 28 day of May, Sony will hold another press conference in Hong Kong. Invites have been sent relating to the new Xperia flagship. The reports concludes by telling us four product development engineers from Japan would be sent to Hong Kong to speak on the design on the new models.

 

It is not entirely clear at this time if Sony would release the product globally; at one time it was believed the device will reside in Japan. The press conference will afford us the ability to know if Sony really as plans to get the device out of the shores of Japan. Until then, I will let you know once we have further information.
