iPhone 7 Missing 3.5mm Jack, Why?

iPhone 7 Missing 3.5mm Jack, Why?

ip 7 main

Apple is no stranger to criticism and speculation. We have witnessed the issue of “Bend gate” and of many bugs. Despite this, Apple took their most “courageous” leap yet to move into an all digital future (according to Apple). Their “upgrade” to the future is the removal of the 3.5mm head phone jack from its latest iteration of their flagship model(s); the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

The much loved 3.5mm headphone jack has been around for several years and we all have settled on a culture of headphones and earbuds that utilize this feature that ranges from cheap to downright expensive and high end. On the iPhone 7 and 7 plus the only way to utilize your 3.5mm headset is via the lightning port to 3.5mm adapter included in the box.

Unfortunately, this eliminates the ability to charge your phone while listening to your headphones free of charge. You would have to invest in a more complicated adapter to do this simple time old activity; listening while charging.

Despite all of this, there must be a reason why Apple still decided to take this route.

The Disappearance of Jack

Phil Schiller, marketing chief for Apple, actually confirmed that the company was motivated by “courage” to remove the headphone jack altogether. We quote Schiller on the topic: “Some people have asked us why we would remove the analogue headphone jack. It’s been with us a really long time and it comes down to one word: courage. Our team has tremendous courage.”

This “marketing” speech has become the subject of various jokes online around various social media sites. Schiller, however, continued by explaining that; “our smartphones are packed with technologies, faster processors… and all of it fights for space.”

It is known that the tiny bit of space that the 3.5 mm jack takes up was needed to pack extra technology to improve 3D Touch. We know that the iPhone 7 did not become thinner remaining at 7.1mm just like the iPhone 6S.

We speculate that Apple wanted more room inside to include the A10 Fusion processor and the extra bit of battery cell capacity.

Apple is looking at a truly “wireless” company. We often wonder why iPhone’s do not utilize wireless charging in this case at all.

Apple’s Alternative

In the box Apple provides owners with a pair of earphones that are not 3.5mm but have a lightning port attached at the end of the cable instead. Again if you have your head phones in you wont be able to charge the device (wireless charging could have helped here).

The box includes a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter as well which enables you to use your 3.5mm head sets again. Admittedly the adapter does not look good at all. It is an extra piece of wire you can lose and must carry around and will be annoying over time for many users. In the U.S. it will cost you 9$ to replace the cable.

 

The Problem with Software

UPDATE:

The next big issue we have heard from various sources online (notable reviewers as well have reported this) is the issue of the new Lightning EarPods regularly crashing. The bug still lets users hear their music, but the EarPod’s controls are frozen. You are stuck with a pair of ear buds that play music but prevent you from controlling the volume, and various Siri activated features.

The problem is software.

Time old tested 3.5mm connections are analog while the lightning port based earphone system heavily relies on your software. This time around Apple’s iOS is riddled with a bug that causes this complicated issue. Apple has announced that they will be providing updates in future patches to address this issue. Until then, users are forced to plug and unplug their lightning earpods.

Against the simplicity of the 3.5mm port which posed no trouble we are hard pressed to find this move by Apple a “smart one”.

 

LG V20 Unveiled!

New LG V20 Unveiled and Reviewed!

Capture6

 

With the Note 7 and iPhone 7 released close to one another LG reveals the LG V20 flagship model. The timing is quite impeccable for LG to release a capable, premium device. On paper we are looking at a powerful smartphone with interesting specifications. Let’s see how well it performs up against its competitors.

The latest LG flagship device is the LG V20 claims to be the greatest multimedia smartphone you would ever own. LG included the world’s first 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC (digital-to-analog) converter inside the V20 for incredible sound via your headsets (still rocking the 3.5mm headphone jack). The device also features two rear-facing cameras for super wide-angle imaging.

Interestingly, LG’s “secondary display” makes a return this year which is basically a second screen up top above your main display which displays “always-on” ticker information.

The LG V20 is the first non Nexus device to receive the Android OS update to Nougat. This comes with improved battery life via the Doze functionality and multi-window features. The Google In Apps search feature is also included which functions a lot like Apple’s iOS search which combines contacts, apps, messages, and the web to find your information via key words. This is a clean and handy tool that should have been on Android a long time ago.

The device shapes up to be quite an interesting competitor within this time of the year when major flagship models are presented. We will review the unit and also talk about how well this device works for the user.

Specs:

  • Quad-Core Kryo Processors Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU (2 x 2.15 GHz Kryo combined with 2 x 1.6 GHz Kryo cores)
  • Adreno 530 GPU
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 64 GB internal storage + microSD support up to 1 TB
  • Android 7.0 Nougat
  • 5.7-inch QHD IPS Quantum display 2560 x 1440 resolution (513ppi)
  • Secondary Display: IPS Quantum 1040 x 160 resolution 513 ppi
  • Dimensions: 7 x 78.1 x 7.7mm
  • Weight: 174g
  • Camera 1: 16 MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and OIS (75 Degree lens)
  • Camera 2: 8 MP f/2.4 aperture wide angle camera
  • Camera 3: 5 MP front facing camera with f1.9 aperture (wide angle 120 degrees)
  • Removable 3200 mAh battery (Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 enabled)
  • USB Type – C
  • 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC inside
  • Finger Print Scanner on rear

Capture

PROS

  • Great Quantum display
  • Removable battery
  • Secondary display is useful
  • Impressive wide angle dual camera system
  • Premium design materials used
  • The most audiophile friendly smartphone in existence right now
  • Great High Definition triple mics for audio recording
  • Top notch specs on paper
  • Android Nougat (7.0) pre installed

CONS

  • Performance is great but there are times when the phone feels sluggish due to lags and delays turning on (inconsistent performance)
  • Slow boot time
  • Not IP68 proofed
  • Can heat up in the hand
  • Can be a bit too big for some
  • No APP drawer by default

Introducing… the 32bit Hi-Fi QUAD DAC

Capture3

A huge selling point that LG has made a big deal about was the internal DAC. The V20 is the first smartphone ever to integrate a 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC (powered by the ESS Sabre ES9218) into its device. This provides powerful quality sounds through wired connections. Given that you are using high quality audio files and good pairs of can’s this would be a clear winner for audiophiles who had to choose a device for 2016. For other users this may be more difficult to distinguish, especially for those who do not use larger music files to play off of. If one spends enough time with this powerful sound setup you most likely cannot go back to any other high end phone such as the Note 7 or the iPhone 7 Plus. Did we also mention that the LG V20 comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack? Though DAC’s primarily bring high end music files such as FLAC to what it is meant to express the DAC within the V20 device can also take your simple MP3’s and make it sound louder and with great clarity. You do have the option to turn off the DAC system. The V20 enables users to revisit their old tunes and relive concert recordings, playlists, and other old songs you might find in your hard drive’s attic space.

The exterior speaker is found at the bottom of the phone and is quite good. It does not crackle or sound high like playing in a tin.

At the bottom of the device LG has included an HD 24-bit audio recording microphone system. This means your LG V20 comes with three AOP mics to ensure professional level sound recording that brings voice to the front. The mics will still record background noises that are articulated and it is works quite wonderfully. The recorded files are LPCM 24 bit audio formats with up to 48kHz sampling.

It is good to invest in a device knowing that you will have powerful music experiences that no other smartphone can offer via lossless files but also have the means to record sounds with high quality output.

To round of the tour de force of a sound system within LG is including a pair of Band and Olufsen H3 headsets in the box. If you would dare to compare these cans to simple earbuds that come with many other smartphones, you would be gravely mistaken. The quality upgrade in this decision is a huge step-up to really show what you can benefit with the DAC system inside the phone.

Double Snappers

Capture4

The V20 sports a dual rear facing camera one being 16 MP (f/1.8) and the other being an 8 MP f/2.4 wide angle camera. This can really help people create awesome content with two different degrees of view. Though 75 degrees is a lot narrower than 135 degrees the wide angle camera provides an interesting fish-eye look for creative content. Users would certainly find this fun to play with among friends and family. LG’s camera also comes with laser guided detection, phase detection and contrast auto focus. We should see high quality images coming out of this device.

However, as reported by users of the pre-production model the condition must be right. While images look crisp and sharp where light is adequate, mid to low light situations tend to cause motion blur and grainy effects during AUTO mode. Sharpness is visible but definition can be soft at times. The LG V20’s camera is still a very strong contender in the smartphone camera category.

It is important to note that no smart phone today can take great photos in darkness or low light compared to a DSLR or a professional camera. These cameras, though they have come very far into the future are still companions for certain creative work and mostly used for personal life to capture your moments and other information around you. Not really for professional use.

Within the pre-production model of the V20 we found that the camera had a tendency to crash. We hope that the final release of the model will have it updated and fixed. The only way, at this time, to fix the crash is to do a phone reboot. Compared to the iphone or the faster Note 7 which launches camera’s with a double click of the home button the LG V20 will need to sort out this bug. Missing a moment because your camera app crashing is no joke. Another important note is that this may be a faulty unit.

The device can record 4K video with the assistance of Qualcomm’s EIS 3.0 technology (electronic image stabilization) (AKA LG’s Steady Record 2.0) which should reduce sync latency by up to 50 milliseconds. This feature utilizes the phones gyroscope-based electrical image stabilization and digital image stabilization. In real world this means that your hand movements will cause a lot less jitters and shakes. This can seriously help with home movie makers and other people looking to take on a challenge. User can also record in 1080p video support.

Design Language

Capture2

The LG V20 features a matte metal body. It has a premium feel and is rather quite minimal and quite nice to look at. The size is a little bit large in the hand but it still feels good somehow. The device is light with the weight of 174 grams which is between the iPhone 7 and the Note 7. Physically, however, it is longer and wider then both alternatives. The larger size could possibly contribute to a well balanced device.

The look and feel of a device is very subjective and can be quite difficult for reviewers to try and please everyone with. Some may say that the V20 looks plastic and cheap when viewed from afar. Personal taste may alter on how you use the phone. Overall, we would agree that the V20 is a fantastic device.

To continue the LG tradition, the fingerprint sensor is found on the back of the phone. A USB-Type C port along with a 3.5mm headphone jack is found at the bottom of the device. An interesting point to make is that the LG V20 has a Metal back that is removable. This reveals the 3200 mAh battery, MicroSD slot, and SIM slot. To have user friendly battery exchanges right from your back is very convenient and important later on in the future. Battery life degrades over time due to heat and usage (charging) and it is unavoidable. That is why a few years down the road people start to report issues with battery life even from 100% charge. The batteries simply cannot hold a full charge like it used to on day 1. However, for the LG V20 the story changes. You can easily swap in a brand new battery pack from LG or a 3rd party company and voila you are set for another few years or more given that you do not switch out your phone so soon.

The phone is not water resistant which is a bit of a downer. The device can get hot in the hands due to the beefy CPU and GPU inside. You may feel some heat in your hands but the temperature is not crazy hot so no need to worry.

Secondary Display

The Secondary Quantum display above your main display features five quick tools which includes and are not limited to sound profiles, camera, flashlight, and Wi-fi. You can add on any other apps to an additional 5 slot row for a quick launching experience. Remember that this display does not turn off and remain on even if your main display is turned off. To add or remove the app you simply need to tap and hold the app on the secondary display and pull it down into your main screen and vice versa. The final section as you scroll on displays your name in a specific font. Notifications displaying information does show up as a rolling display. Rest assured, despite the “always – on” feature of this display, users can opt to turn it off via their settings.

Main Display

The 5.7 inch QHD IPS Quantum display is bright and has rich colors all around. The resolution is set at 2560 x 1440 pixels and is a fantastic display. The resolution is the same as that of the Note 7 while the iPhone 7 Plus uses an IPS LCD display that uses a 1920 x 1080 panel. While watching a movie or playing a game the colors are vivid, crisp and they are very much detailed thanks to its 1440p resolution. LG allows users to customize the temperature of the screen to make things easier on your eyes by applying a warmer hue.

The Internals and Battery Life

Capture5

The LG V20 comes with the new UX5.0+ UI which is a slightly more refined edition of what was seen on the LG G5. The main home screen does not have an app drawer. We were grateful to see that LG included 3 different home screen options with two of them offering the App drawer back. The LG UX5.0+ UI is relatively non-distracting from the overall Android experience. LG includes other App’s that are LG flavored and are quite useful. The QuickMemo+ app is sort of like Google Keep, the Comfort view function gives you screen a bit of a yellow hue to help you view the phone at night and still be able to fall asleep. We also found the Knock-to-Wake and Knock-To-Sleep functions extremely useful. A cool app LG deploys is called the Smart Bulletin. This is a home screen slide you can add and combines all of your related information into a simple layout.

The LG V20 utilizes the new Qualcomm 820 chipset, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage with expandable storage via microSD, and support for X12 LTE speeds. On paper, the LG V20 is more than capable of handling its own weight right? Most of the time the device ran admirably and worked zippy and super fast as expected. However, it is important to note that there are moments time to time where the phone struggles with certain tasks such as Google Maps, Internet browsers, and other apps randomly. We are criticizing both the optimizations LG has made utilizing the Snapdragon 820 CPU and also Snapdragon as well for decreasing multitasking performance from octa core (810 cpu) down to Quad core (820 cpu). The biggest example is between the two different Note 7 (international vs North American) Exynos 8890 VS Snapdragon 820 battle. The Exynos with its octa core configuration and optimized performance destroys the Snapdragon 820 in many fronts. Snapdragon, while being an innovative silicon company who has great history in CPU and in the smartphone market, will need to come back stronger especially after the Snapdragon 810 failure. One thing we must note is that the Snapdragon 820’s Adreno 530 GPU is a powerful beast. It runs graphical tasks like no other and out ranks other silicons in the graphical department. The LG V20 has cross-platform Vulkan API support which is advertised as ushering in “console quality” graphics on your mobile platform.

The LG V20 comes standard with 64 GB’s of storage space and kept the microSD slot which supports up to 1 TB. Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and USB-Type C is also found on the phone.

The battery life of the device performs pretty well. You can expect about a day and a half of heavy usage. If you are a moderate user you can expect about 2 full days sometimes. Thanks to Qualcomm’s Quick charge 3.0 you would expect faster charging and we have seen this. It took 1 hour and 15 minutes for the battery to fully charge. A big plus to the removable battery is that you can simply swap out the battery pack when the phone dies. This eliminates the need to stand around a power source for 20 – 30 minutes for at least a good 2 – 4 days.

 Early Verdict

The LG V20 is ambitious. As LG’s next phablet-sized smartphone which strays far from standard smartphone designs we are happy to see powerful specs on the device. Despite some lag which we suspect should be fixed and non existent in most devices the LG V20 does not disappoint. With a Dual camera system on the front and back, a removable battery, and Android Nougat all in one package what is there not to love? LG V20 creates an innovative stance with the included QUAD DAC inside (compared to Apple’s rather boring iPhone 7 release) we are excited to see how users express what they feel about the LG V20. The LG V20 is a premium device that is recommended as one of the most interesting devices of 2016.

New Note 7 Update Limits Battery to 80%

New Note 7 Update Limits Battery to 80%

3500mah

As many know, the Note 7’s are being recalled due to faulty battery packs that easily catch fire. Samsung has already begun sending out replacement devices since last week for those who registered online. Check out our other information page here for more info.

Today, because there are still many users out there of affected Note 7’s who absolutely refuse to return their device Samsung has released a forced firmware update. This firmware update nags the user to return the Note 7 and get it replaced every time they try to charge, use or do anything with the phone. However, latest reports show that Samsung is capping the Note 7’s battery life at 80% charge for those older Note 7 models.

We see this as Samsung’s way of staying safe.

Seriously, return your phone for a brand new one it is free.

At this time, major phone carrires in the U.S. and Canada have restocked with replacement Note 7 devices already.

The NON replaced (Old) Note 7’s are a hazard to flights, vehicles, and pretty much anywhere they are used. 50% are still floating out there in user hands.

Galaxy Note 7 Recall Heats Up

Galaxy Note 7 Why do the Batteries Explode?explosions-nokia-600x387

As many know by now, Samsung has been recalling all of their devices that were sold after August 19 2016. The issue is found in faulty battery cells that tend to explode after charging.

The science behind the reasons for exploding batteries is well understood. Devices today use lithium ion batteries. The liquid that is found in these packs are highly flammable. If the battery short circuits in any way the integrity of the pack is compromised. A weak spot will occur somewhere on the thin sheet that separates the positive and negative sides. Heat builds up on one spot which ends up in a fiery chemical reaction.

The Note 7 is not the first device to catch fire, nor is Samsung the first company to perform a mass recall. Nokia was one of the manufacturers that had to recall 46 million phone batteries back in 2009. Exploding phones have caused deaths.

The reality is that no device is truly safe. For example, unlucky iPhone owners have reported bad burns from exploding devices (this occurred in 2015 and 2016).

Again the issue is the reality of lithium ion batteries, Samsung, and many other manufacturers are already hard at work with various universities and groups to develop a new kind of battery that would pose less of a threat.

 

Galaxy Note 7 Review Hands-On

Galaxy Note 7 Review (Hands-On)

galaxy-note-7-leaks-press-renders-2

The Galaxy Note 7 has been made available to the public for quite some time now (since Aug. 19 2016) and has been making huge headlines on many blog sites and has been Samsung’s best offering yet for their Note series line up. The new phablet features Samsung’s latest technological advancements which include; perfectly edged screen and back, iris scanner, a fantastic low light camera, cleaner Touchwiz UI, improved S-pen and features, beefier processor, high quality materials and a great feel in the hands due to design language chosen by Samsung. We provide a hands on and honest review of the Note 7 after over 4 weeks of use as a daily driver.

Key Features

  • Octa-core CPU (Quad core Snapdragon 820 in North America)
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 64 GB internal storage base model
  • micro SD support up to 256 GB
  • Fantastic 5.7 inch Super AMOLED screen
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 5
  • IP68 water resistance
  • Type-C port
  • 3500 mAh battery
  • New Blue Coral color
  • Excellent f1.7 camera

  • Battery life is mediocre compared to past Note phablets
  • Samsung’s RAM management is too aggressive
  • Snapdragon variant is reported as bootloader locked

This review is based on the North American Snapdragon 820 powered variant of the Galaxy Note 7. This is an honest review looking at the Pros and Cons as we present each category of the phablet.

The Review

—–

Display

There is not much else to say about the display of the Note 7 other than it being fantastic. The new Note 7’s screen features dual curved edges on the sides of the screen just like the S7 Edge. However, the curved display’s are not as pronounced and can be a rather pleasant sight to see. Images and videos roll off the screen into seemingly endless curves, sort of like a waterfall of color that flow off your screen onto your lap. The important thing here is that it is quite difficult to “accidentally” launch applications or tap something with your hands while holding it. Bravo Samsung. Samsung deploys their own Super AMOLED display this year (the same found in previous iterations of Galaxy devices). The resolution of the display is not quite 4K yet but it is nonetheless a very sharp and brilliant 1440 x 2560 (~516 ppi) display. We would be hard pressed to find someone who cannot appreciate Samsung screens by now. Samsung created a new system for the Note 7’s called “Mobile HDR” a first for any smartphone’s ever created. This is the same High Dynamic Range you would find in high end smart TVs but this time it is found on your very own mobile handset. This makes sense as for many people the majority of their waking hours is spent on their phone screen, watching videos, viewing images, chatting, gaming and the sort. Mobile HDR is activated through your user settings and will work on content that supports it. The screen is extremely bright as well going up to 1050 nits to help you keep content visible in harsh lighting.

The S-Pen

The main reason one should buy the Note 7 is to take advantage of its highly integrated S-pen. The aluminum pen that fits snugly into the bottom right corner of your device is what powers a host of apps, features and other useful functions which is broad enough to tailor to the specific needs of the individual. We would like to note that Samsung has finally combined all of their S-pen related applications into one app called “Samsung Notes”. This creates a clean interface and a much less cluttered UI all around.

This year, the Note 7 features double the pressure point of 4096 compared to last years Note 5. The Pen’s nub is also thinner which helps stimulate the feeling of accuracy while using the pen.

Artists, writers, and general pen users would appreciate the highly accurate and sensitive S-pen. Navigating the UI with the pen keeps the screen clear and helps reduce repetitive-stress finger issues. A good feature from the Note 5 has also returned. This involves simply pulling out the S pen while the screen is off. The screen will stay black but you are able to jot down your notes.Capture

We found that hand writing (cursive) is a lot easier on the Note 7. The precision demanded by the writer can be quite high and brings a lot of stress if expectations are not met. We are happy to say that the Note 7 fits the bill for taking notes, writing journals, and going about everyday tasks while jotting down information.

Sexy Design, New Iris Scanner, and IP68 Water Proofing.

The S7 and S7 Edge paved the way for 2016 to define a streamlined design language that Samsung has deployed. The Note 7 is not too far as a more refined version. The device uses gorilla glass 5 and is glass and metal all around. It feels great in your hands. The Note 7 is more of a box shape compared to the S7 edge, but because the Note 7 is curved front and back it really helps when you hold the phone. Key word: Comfortable.

The IRIS scanner is not a gimmick. It works very well and is simply another impressive method of protecting your device, logging in, and keeping your secure folder safer. The scanner is extremely fast to the point where your friends beside you would never suspect what just happened. The catch is that you cannot be wearing glasses, contacts, and the lighting conditions (though it can work in dark conditions to a certain degree) must be right. To be honest, we never found ourselves in a spot where the IRIS scanner has failed us yet.

TIris Scannerhe Note 7 is also IP68 which means that it can be submerged up to 5 feet for up to 30 minutes. It is nice to have that peace of mind.

New USB TYPE C

The Note 7 is the first of GALAXY devices to use the USB Type C. This is the new USB standard so we expect all future Samsung phones to start using this. The cool thing about USB Type C is that it is reversible. You can charge other phones or devices using your phones battery. Of course, a key selling point of this new type of USB is that you don’t have to fumble to plug the cable in any longer.

Camera: Best in class

The S7 Edge was rated to have the best smartphone camera to date. The Note 7 inherited this very same camera which features dual pixel technology, a wide aperture of f1.7, good gestures, and 12 megapixel sensor.

The Image Quality of the Note 7 is simply fantastic in any lighting. Take dark places for example, while a friend’s iPhone simply shows a black screen when they tried to take a picture the Note 7 was able to produce an image (albeit it was very grainy due to high ISO). The auto focus on this device is extremely fast as well and super smooth thanks to Dual Pixel technology. You would find this technology in DSLR’s such as Canon 70D or the 7D Mark II.

Battery and Speed3500mah

The Note 7 is very powerful. Everyday tasks will simply fly as you demand it. However, we have experienced lag in certain cases. We cannot pin point as to why this is happening and we are hoping that future updates will fix the issue. On the most part, however, the phone is blazing fast.

The Battery Life, however, can be quite average. The Note series are known to have long lasting life. However, it seems that the hardware inside is very power hungry. You can expect a full day’s use out of it. However, you would need to be conservative to have it last 2 days. The Note 7 has the largest battery size of all the Note’s so far holding a 3500 mAh battery so we expect the software and hardware taking a huge toll on the pack.

Conclusion:

galaxy-note-7-without-samsung-logo-3

The Note 7 is a great flag ship smartphone. You cant go wrong with it. The design language is sleek and modern, comfortable and compact despite its large screen size. The display is almost bezeless and is popping with colors and certain content is powered by Mobile HDR. The Camera is a great low light performer and works extremely fast.

The Note 7 is a highly recommended device as it easily takes the number one spot of 2016.
