Unless you're working at a tech company or write about technology and are in Vegas hobnobbing, CES is just a barrage of announcements about the Next Big Thing. Every piece of hardware and software is destined to change the world, and even the most minor products are destined for major impact. It's only when high-definition radio becomes a feature in cars that no one uses that the echo chamber quiets and everybody reluctantly admits the Next Big Thing wasn't as big as they'd hoped. Basically, unless you're unveiling significant technology such as high-definition television (which debuted at CES in 1998), Blu-ray discs (2003) or autonomous cars (2013), one device isn't going to make much impact beyond a company's booth. Apple has rendered its checkered history with gaming a somewhat moot point by helping smartphones and tablets wrest the mobile gaming market from Nintendo's 3DS and DS handhelds and Sony's Playstation Vita and PSP. With a nearly 70% share of the mobile gaming market that's still growing, according to Flurry Analytics , mobile devices are killing dedicated handheld consoles one cheap app at a time. At a time Apple was better known for its well-intentioned ideas than for executing them — the Apple Newton message pad, a distant relative of the iPad, comes to mind —.
, and now it's the turn of the larger 5. 5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. In 2013, by contrast, we got the premium iPhone 5s and the more affordable iPhone 5c, both with 4-inch displays and both still available (you can compare all iPhone models at Apple's website ). The iPhone 6 Plus is the biggest phone Apple has ever... Design Time was when Apple would have dismissed the idea of a large-screen handset. Times and user requirements have changed, and the appearance of a 5. 5-inch screen in an iPhone is no surprise. The physical design is the same as that of the smaller iPhone 6. Button placement is identical with the power button on the right, volume buttons and mute switch on the left. The headset and proprietary Lightning connector are on the bottom edge, along with the handset's single speaker. Large top and bottom screen bezels are a characteristic of Apple's handsets, but this makes for a tall phone in the case of the iPhone 6 Plus. Compare its 158. 1mm height to 150. 7mm for the 5. 3-inch. The plus side of the large screen bezels is the ease with which you can hold the handset in landscape mode for video watching or gaming, although you do need to take care not to cover the speaker in this orientation. Sound quality from the single speaker is noticeably better than from the smaller iPhone 6 -- indeed it's among the best we've heard.
Today at a NYC press event, Sony revealed their next partnership with Verizon Wireless with the announcement of the Xperia Z3v . This new device comes with a bevy of impressive features including a 3200mAh battery with wireless charging and... The press event to unveil the device was filled with motivational videos and talk about empowering the next generation of users to be able to connect, create and share moments. The Sony Xperia Z3v contains a 5. 2″ FHD display, 2. 5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage (with micro SD slot support up to 128GB), 20. 7MP camera, and a 3200mAh battery with wireless charging built-in. I spent a good 30 minutes playing around with the Z3v. holding it, taking pictures of journalists (and of the phone itself), using it and admiring it. They had a booth exclusively to show off pictures taken by the device, touting how great the... The device feels premium and well-built, but slippery and not as comfortable as some other phones like the HTC Desire Eye or the Moto X. It’s a great effort from Sony, given their minimal US presence and they’ve packed in some awesome features. What the f are Verizon and Sony trying to pull. Others have said it, but I’ll say it again… this is a Z2 with the 2. 5 GHz 801 instead of the 2. 3 GHz 801. It is NOT a Z3. 1) Has the.
