iPhone 7 set to compete with dedicated cameras
Untitled 1

With the announcement of its upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple has changed its approach to cameras in its long-running line of smartphones – starting with "user-friendliness" and going beyond.

Image stabilization, which previously was a feature in Plus models of the iPhone, has now been added to the IPhone 7 itself. This helps prevent image blur from shaking hands or camera movement. The iPhone 7's lens has also seen some moderate improvements: with a wider aperture, the camera is set to be able to take better-lit photos in low-light conditions.

The Samsung Galaxy Note S7 might be the most technologically advanced piece of handheld hardware ever produced. Samsung have really pushed the bounds of what a phone can do and, in doing so, left Apple in the dust. It's hard to believe for anyone who was around for the launch of the original iPhone that this would be a market that could ever see Apple dominated. With the Galaxy Note S7, that's the world we're living in.


The Specs

Working from the outside in, the Galaxy Note S7 sports a rugged Corning Gorilla Glass body, both front and back, with a stunning, 5.7inch,...

The Emergence of Curved Screen Displays.

Right from the onset, one notices that the LG G Flex is unlike any other mobile phones that have come before it. Made with a 6 inch slightly curved display, the LG G Flex has a striking ambitious profile. It’s the opinion of a number of people that the curved construction is a pointless gimmick; nonetheless this is a welcomed resurgence in mobile phone design, unique and useful. The phone’s curved design is not a party trick as many may be quick to dismiss. The phone has a more comfortable feel because of it; it improves the user’s media quality of experience while making...

The future for phones is flexible - so says the rumours coming from the Samsung ideal mill and online tips from those in the know. 

Samsung have released a number of concept videos showing foldable devices that convert from phones to tablets to laptops with minimal origami involved. This could seen rather like a mixmash of the current 2 in 1 convertible devices blended with the 'phablet' (the telecom industry's favourite term for a phone with a screen that is so big it becomes usable as a tablet). However these new conceptual devices are shown as being a little more...

The Samsung Gear 360: Top to the Bottom
Untitled 1

VR and 360 capture have been the hot topics of the last two years and Samsung is throwing something new onto the floor in the shape of the Samsung Gear 360. Much like the LG 360 Cam, it's a hand held unit that allows users to create 360 photographs and videos that you can stream directly to your Samsung Gear VR headset. It's a portable alternative more in the vein of a GoPro than heavy duty professional 360 capable cameras and looks to be aimed more at the casual end of the market.

The Specs

The Gear 360 is an adorable little camera that comes equipped with a pair of 180 degree...

Augmented Reality strikes back: Google Glass 2.0
Trend header

It's fair to say that the original Google Glass project was something of a damp squib. After an initially successful backing by a large chunk of the tech-minded populace, Google saw less than impressive sales and dumped the project largely unfinished. As with all true innovations though it refused to die a death and the project was passed on to Tony Fandell, the man who helped innovate the iPod and iPhone.

The News So Far

After the misfire on their first attempt at AR Headsets, Google renamed their wearable division to Project Aura and put the ever capable Tony Fandell in charge. From...
