Well today reports started showing up on twitter and various tech sites that Iphone 6 plus users were experiencing bent and warped iphones. They were reporting that this was happening just by carrying the phone in the front pocket. These bent phones were not due to damage or abuse. This led Youtube creator "Unbox Therapy" to upload an Iphone 6 Plus bend test. You can see in the video above just how easily the Iphone 6 Plus bends. The aluminum uni body folds under the slightest bit of pressure at a particularly fragile point near the top 1/3rd of the device. Shortly after posting the Iphone 6 Plus bend test Unbox Therapy uploaded a Note 3 bend test. You may be surprised to see that with all his might he could not bend the Note 3. The Note 3 is made mostly of plastic which is not malleable like aluminum. It also has a magnesium chassis which is also much more durable than aluminum. It is no surprise that it stands up to the bend test!...
We have several reports indicating that folks who pre-ordered their next generation Moto X on Moto Maker have already started receiving shipping notifications. That means folks will get the device in their hands by the end of the week, and could be as early as tomorrow.
Keep in mind, this doesn't apply to everyone who pre-ordered, but is likely just for the first wave of folks who signed up for one. Most of the rumors peg September 26th as the day the device will show up in retail stores, so it makes sense that pre-orders will have started shipping.
Sound off if you are on of the folks who received your shipping notification email.
We have a number of images to share with you guys today which are supposedly of the new Motorola Droid Turbo. As we reported previously, a device codenamed Quark, model XT1254 is expected to be the new Droid Turbo. The back panel of this device is what is depicted in the images according to this new report.
What is readily apparent from these images is that the device will have a rounded Kevlar unibody and a dual LED flash. Also, its front has capacitive keys (back, home, and recent apps). On top of this, the source of this intel indicated that the display will round out at 5.2-inches and will likely be a 564 ppi Quad HD component.
What do you think of this more rounded design for the Droid Turbo?
As an added bonus, a pic of some cases for the Moto G and Moto X second generation are compared to a Moto S case. You will find all of these shots in the thread below.
When the Play Station 4 was released it was also announced that there would be a remote play feature which would allow you to play your Play Station 4 remotely from your Xperia Z3. A Sony representative had also said that Sony did not plan to bring this feature to any other device. No worries the dev community has come through again. Developer "XperiaPlaystation" has ported Remote play to all android devices. To make this work you will need to flash a particular zip file and install a certain apk. Your device must be running Android 4.0 or better. You will need to have a custom recovery installed like Clock Work Mod recovery. Head to the link below for the downloads.
As Android devices continue to grow in screen size as well as performance we are using them in more productive ways.
