Android N

Android N

Google’s released a developer preview of Android N, the latest version of the Android mobile operating system. We’re familiar with the alphabetical naming system of Android, so with the previous version being called Android Marshmallow, it’s no surprise that the upcoming version will be named after the letter N.

How to try Android N:
If you own a Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 6, a Nexus 9, a Nexus Player, or Pixel C device, you can download the update and put it onto your phone manually, or join Google’s beta-tester program and get the update over the air. However, keep in mind that you update at your own risk! Because this is not a finalized version and is, needless to say, an extremely early and buggy release of the OS, it likely is not very stable or compatible with most of your apps. Even if you don’t have an additional phone to use in case something goes wrong with the Android N device, you can always downgrade at the cost of having all of your data wiped.

If you’re not interested in testing, however, you’ll have to wait for all the wrinkles to get ironed out and the finalized version to be released. To help you get a better idea of Android N without all the headaches of having to go through all the bugs, glitches, and tests, here are 5 of the top features of Android N that we know about so far:



1. Multi-windows
Given that multiple OEM skins (such as Samsung’s TouchWiz) have already been offering multi-window support, it’s no surprise that Android N will, as well. You’ll be able to split your screen to support at least two applications at once, provided those applications support or allow being resized. This is going to be great for picture-in-picture viewing to let you quickly view an email while keeping an eye on a YouTube or Netflix video.

2. Better Battery Life
Introduced with Marshmallow was a feature called Doze, meant to help you save battery life when the phone is idling. Android N is supposed to improve on this feature even more to help your device last even longer when in standby. Night mode is also supposed to make a return. It changes the colour-scheme of your phone to a darker one to cause less strain on your eyes when browsing at night. It’s also customizable to link to the daylight times in your location for further convenience. On certain devices that save power through darker colours, such as Samsung Galaxy phones, Night Mode should help elongate your battery life.



3. Bundled Notifications
To help users de-clutter their notification centers, Android N will feature notification bundling. You’ll be able to group multiple notifications from one app together and expand them by using a two-finger gesture or tapping on specific button.

4. Respond in app
One of the many coveted features for texting applications, Android N users will be able to answer text messages without leaving the screen that they’re currently on. The Android blog calls it Direct Reply for now. When you receive a text message, you’ll be able to choose from Reply, Archive, or Snooze. If you hit Reply, a new line will show up along with your keyboard to let you respond right in the notification itself.



5. Drag and drop text
In split-screen mode, you’ll also be able to drag and drop text between apps. Just highlight the text, hold, and then drag it into the next app over. One caveat so far–though we’re sure it’ll be fixed for the final release–is that you can only drag text that you’ve typed into a textbook, and it only works in certain apps. If this glitch can be fixed, this will be a great complementary feature to multi-window.

Again, if you can’t wait to try these features out for yourself, you can update at any time if you own any of the following devices: Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 6, a Nexus 9, a Nexus Player, or Pixel C device, . However, make sure you’re ready for glitches, bugs, and a multitude of unexpected errors!

We’ll keep you up to date with all of the newest features as we learn more.

Samsung Pay

Samsung Pay


It looks like this will be the year that virtual wallets may actually catch on. After Apple Pay, we talked about the LG White Card, and now let’s take a look at Samsung Pay.

This mobile payment feature will be available later this year to Canadian owners of the Galaxy A5, Note 5, S6, S6 Active, S6 edge, S6 edge+, S7, and the S7 edge. You’ll get to save your credit card onto your phone’s Samsung Pay app, and then tap the phone on supported POS machines to authorize the payment.

A big selling point on Samsung Pay is the vast amount of terminals that will accept the new service. Right now in the US alone, Samsung touts that it works with “more stores than any other mobile payment service.” Arguably more secure than a PIN or password, a fingerprint is required to authorize payments. Another factor that should help Samsung Pay gain traction is the free charging pad that Samsung USA is offering customers when they load their first card. Hopefully, Samsung Canada will offer the same gift to Canadian users!

Currently, the Samsung Pay is supported by Samsung USA through AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, MetroPCs, and Verizon. Some of the major credit and bank cards supported are: Bank of America, American Express, Chase, CITI, PNC, Synchrony, US Bank, and Wells Fargo. A complete list of supported carriers, banks, and merchants are available on their website.

Hopefully when Samsung Pay is released in Canada later this year, a large variety of banks and carriers will be supported as well.

iPhone 7 – What We Expect To See

iPhone 7-3


While the iPhone 7 has not officially been announced yet, the device is most likely going to be available in the fall months of 2016. The iPhone 6S is the current latest model and was released in September of 2015 so a similar release this year is likely with the iPhone 7. With each alternating year, Apple releases an overall new iPhone design so since we had the 6S last year, the iPhone 7 this year should feature quite a few changes from what we have seen in the past. Here is what we expect so far:

The iPhone Will Likely Not Have A Headphone Jack

One of the biggest changes to the iPhone that we expect to see with the iPhone 7 is the removal of the headphone jack. This will be done because Apple reportedly wants to decrease the thickness of the iPhone 7, making it nearly as thin as the latest iPod model. By removing the headphone jack they will free up a lot of internal space so the device can be even thinner but it will require that headphones are connected through the Lightning port or Bluetooth.

iPhone 7-2


Possible Wireless Headphones

Because headphones will no longer have their own audio jack, there have been a few reports that suggest Apple is developing a new set of premium earbuds that will work wirelessly with Bluetooth technology. Unlike traditional Bluetooth headphones, though, there will be no connecting wires between either of ear pieces, similar to what is being developed with the Bragi Dash headphones.

Design Changes

The lightning port will most likely be thinner and the removal of the audio jack will ultimately allow the iPhone 7 to be a lot thinner than what is currently on the market. Apple is likely trying to get the iPhone 7 as thin as the latest iPod which is 6.1mm compared to a depth of 7.3mm for the iPhone 6S Plus that is the latest flagship phone. In addition to shaving the width, we may see he protruding camera retracted back into the iPhone so that it is flush with the body and in place of the old audio jack a second, thinner speaker may be added to the iPhone 7 to allow for stereo audio.

iPhone 7


Potential Dual Camera

Another big change to the iPhone 7 is reportedly dual-camera technology that will give the iPhone 7 (or iPhone 7 Plus) two lenses. After Apple purchased the company LinX Imaging they gained technology that would support this theory. With two lenses, it would give the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus more capabilities for taking photos, allowing for better low-light photos and granting some features that would be similar to what you expect from DSLR cameras.

Wireless Charging

Since the Lightning port will likely be used as the headphone port as well on the iPhone 7, that means you cannot have headphones plugged in at the same time as you are charging. As a result, there is speculation that the iPhone 7 will have wireless charging capabilities, but Apple may not have finished the technology yet so it could be the iPhone 7S in 2017 before we see this functionality.

OnePlus 3

OnePlus


When the OnePlus One phone was first released, it was applauded by the mobile phone users all over the world. Not only did it feature the major the selling points of most flagship phones of the time, but it had an attractive price tag, too. A large part of its popularity may also be attributed to the invitation system they used to regulate purchases.

According to Pete Lau, the co-founder of OnePlus, the company’s newest flagship phone will be released in the second half of 2016. OnePlus has shown concerns that while the OnePlus 2 demonstrated higher sales than the original model, the 2 did not exude the same “wow” factor that the OnePlus One did. In an effort to bring that back, OnePlus says that the newest phone will feature a brand new design.

The OnePlus 1 and 2 both featured 5.5 inch displays with 1920×1080 resolution, which tells us that unless the company wanted to venture into the smaller phone or phablet territory, the 3 will likely stay the same. It’s rumoured to have the Snapdragon 820, likely due to the over-heating issues of the Snapdragon 810. It may be released with two version: one with 16GB of internal memory and 3GB of RAM, and one with 64GB of memory and 4GB of RAM.

OnePlus Phone


Although we can’t comment on the design that OnePlus will choose for the OnePlus 3, it’s a pretty safe bet to say that it will be running the company’s own OxygenOS. An interesting point to note about its software is that Microsoft may be designing a mobile version of Windows 10 that could be compatible with the OnePlus 3.

With the recent markdown of the OnePlus 2, we’re hoping that the OnePlus 3 will also feature a circulating about the company’s invitation system are also saying that the company will be doing away with the invites and bringing in a new method purchasing method. Whether the relatively young company has grown enough in these past years to handle a conventional method of sale, we’ll see by the end of the year.

Are there any particular things that you’re hoping the OnePlus 3 will feature? Let us know!

Should You Upgrade to the S7?

Galaxy S7 Phone


Do you have a Galaxy S5 or a Galaxy S6? Are you wondering whether you should upgrade to the shiny new S7? We’ve compiled a few of what we think are the most important differences between these phones to help you figure out whether you should upgrade now or hold off until the next big thing.

How important is the camera quality?
If you aren’t a blogger or serious about cellphone photography, the S5 camera will suffice. However, keep in mind that the S5 camera is not on the same league as the S6 or S7 when it comes to photos in darker environments. As long as you have enough light, food or photo blogs are entirely possible. An upgrade from the S5 to the S7 would prove to be a massive one in terms of camera quality. However, if you’re a casual cell-phone photographer sporting around the S6, you might want to hold off until the next big phone comes out. The upgrades from the S6 camera to the S7 camera are nice, but might not be worth all the money if a better camera is your only reason to get upgrade.

What about battery life?
Galaxy S5: 2800mAh removable
Galaxy S6: 2550mAh non-removable
Galaxy S7: 3000mAh non-removable

Out of the three phones, the S6 has the lowest battery life, with the most complaints against it. The S5 has a removable battery, which means that heavy users can carry extra batteries around to swap for an instant 100% rather than having to wait for it to charge up. The S7, on the other hand, has the largest capacity, but without the advantage of a removable battery. If battery life is important to you and you have the S6, it would be in your interest to upgrade. You won’t be losing out on the ability to change batteries, but you’ll be gaining a bigger battery and a more efficient processor to fully utilize the potential of your large battery. If you have the S5, though, you’ll have to make a tough decision. Do you like to carry around extra batteries, or do you want a better processor and bigger battery? Keep in mind though: as your phone ages, your battery ages with it. With the S5, you’ll have the option of buying new batteries whenever yours begins to wear down. You won’t get to do this with the S6 or the S7.

Galaxy S7 Phones


Water/Dust Resistance:
Are you an active person? Do you like to use your phone in the rain? Do you regularly find yourself in situations where your phone needs a little extra protection?

If you’re looking for a more durable or rugged phone, stay away from the S6. The S5 and S7 both have water and dust resistance, while the S6 is as durable as any other phone out there. The S5, however, utilizes gaskets to keep up its water resistance. For example, the battery door has gaskets around it, and it also has a flap to cover its 3.0 USB port. This gives you the ability to remove your battery, but it also means that if your battery door is not closed securely, or if you don’t have the flap on properly, water could easily get into your phone and damage it. The S7, on the other hand, is rated IP68, so it does not require gaskets or flaps. In terms of reliability, the S7 certainly wins. If you accidentally fall into the pool or drop your phone into the toilet, there’s no need to worry about whether the USB flap was properly covered, or the back door was properly clipped on. Whether you have the S5 or the S6, the S7 is a worthy upgrade in this area.

Conclusion
Among the differences in features, we think that these are the three that are the most important to mobile phone users. It’s all a matter of preference. Are you looking for something with a lower price point? A better camera? Do you hike often? Hopefully this article has helped you sort out your thoughts a little more and helped you decide on which phone you’d like!
