Apple iPhone -A Disappointment?

Apple iPhone -A Disappointment

Multiple leaks have been made about the tech giant’s soon to be launched

A large number of people have been impatiently waiting for Apple Inc.’s upcoming iPhone 7. However, several unnamed sources have brought down the anticipation level citing that the impatient shoppers should better focus on Galaxy Note 7.

The Journal has earlier reported that the tech giant’s iPhone 8 –which is expected to be released sometime in 2017 –will undergo major changes and ramping up. For soon to be launching iPhone 7, it reported that the biggest change in the handset will be the removal of the headphone plug. This removal will likely make the device less thinner and strengthen its water resistance, according to the sources privy to the matter disclosed on the basis of anonymity. The sources further opined that the Lightning connector is likely to serve double duty including as a port for connecting headphones and for phone’s charging.

The removal of the headphone jack is something which several analysts had earlier anticipated. A famous and renowned Japanese analyst, Mac Otakara has also highlighted a handful of design changes in the latest iPhone 7 but none of them were too major.

It is no doubt that with its new handset, the tech giant has always made upgrades however in this case it should be assumed that the changes relate to internal software of the phone instead of the external outlook. Mr. Otakara has also opined that the new iPhone 7 will bear resemblance to its predecessors –from the outside though.

Regarding the phone, he expressed, “[The] iPhone 7 has its proximity sensor on the front changed to the dual specification in addition to the ambient light sensor on the side moving from the left side to the right with a slightly longer receiver.”

Apart from this, it has been noted that the latest iPhone will be accompanied by a bigger rear camera. Also, the iPhone 7 Plus rear camera will be converted to a dual lens setup.

The absence of any big or notable design revamping is a bit discouraging but the subtle design changes also form a small irritant which according to analyst is that: “iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus cases cannot be used while it’s also likely that front LCD protection films etc. cannot be used for the new model.”

For the users which will be upgrading from much older models such as iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S, the new iPhone will definitely be accompanied with a large number of changes however for the consumers who will be upgrading from iPhone 6 then the latest edition will not likely offer something much newer or unique.

As of now, iPhone sales have been witnessing a sluggish growth. Therefore, the tech giant is struggling quite hard to increase its sales so not to tamper its revenue any further. The most valuable company is making a lot of efforts to offer one of a kind handset to its loyal customers. The iPhone 8 which is expected in the year 2017 will have major design changes including edgeless display and all glass chassis.

The near future will endorse whether company’s strategies pay off or not. Currently, at the market which closed on Monday, Apple stock stood at a price of $92.04. The 52 week range of the stock is $89 to $133.

SamsungSamsung Makes Modifications To Note 5 Makes Modifications To Note 5

Note 5, Design Changes, S Pen Stylus Silo Stuck, Note 5 Manual guide instructions

Samsung has changed the design of its Galaxy Note 5, so that your smartphone does not break or the S pen does not get stuck in the phone this time

Samsung Electronics Corporation Ltd. has redesigned its famous smartphone, Galaxy Note 5. This is mainly because the electronics company received complaints from many of its customers that the stylus S pen, when accidently put in backwards ended up getting stuck inside the phone. The changes in the design are no longer going to have this problem and cause the phone to break.

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd launched the first Note in 2011, every series since then consisted of a stylus pen with them, serving as a pen for the note instead of the users fingers, however this turned out to become more of a problem than an entertaining feature with time. The tech giant started to notice and receive complain of the note being broken, once the pen was accidently but in backward getting stuck inside the phones silo, which later was recognized as a designing issue.

The Galaxy Note 5 has been redesigned with a grey and white tab that will enable users to eject and inject the S pen comfortably, even when the pen is inserted backwards in the silo. This modification has solved the design flaw that was being reported, these changes can be witnessed in the phone from now on that will be seen in the markets. The flaw turned out to become a major problem, when users forced the pen to get out, the phone ended up breaking. The problem was reported late after the smarphone were purchased because individuals did not notice the problem in the beginning, but after using the phone later in weeks.

The device was later shipped with a warning and even an image informing the buyers of this phone to not insert the S pen backward and instruction on how exactly to insert it to prevent issues. A spokesperson for the manufacturer of the best smartphones around the globe said, “We highly recommend our Galaxy Note 5 users to follow the instructions in the user guide to ensure they do not experience such an unexpected scenario caused by reinserting the S pen in the other way around.”

Users who ended up breaking their Note 5 by insertion of the pen backwards were not reported to get a replacement by the tech giant before the modification and the problem was reported. And it does not seem that the company has any plans to replace the phones of these users. The change in the design that will prevent this problem from occurring again cannot be seen as the change is internal, thus users will not know what smartphone they have purchased the redesigned version or the old one. The company did not make any official announcement of the change, but was waiting for someone to simply notice it on the inside, later it informed of changing the design.
