How Much Will It Cost To Repair My Phone Screen?

How Much Will It Cost To Repair My Phone Screen?

iPhone Repair
If you've cracked your phone screen, then you've got a number of options: Get some sticky tape or a screen protector and soldier on A temporary fix such as sticky tape or a screen protector makes good sense in the short term. It'll stop you cutting your finger on the smaller bits of glass and in most cases, the phone remains functional. For most people though this can only be a short-term fix. Let's be honest, your phone looks a mess and it really doesn't work as well covered in tape. Put your phone in the drawer and get a new one If you've got a really old phone, or your contract just happens to be up for renewal then this could be the option for you. Repairing the screen on a…

Apple HomePod Launches 09/02/18 – Here’s What You Need to Know

Apple News
The Apple HomePod becomes available on Friday 9th February 2018. Here's what you need to know Price: £319 What's The Competition? The Apple HomePod is up against some solid competition. Namely the Amazon Echo and the Google Home. Amazon Echo - £89.99 Google Home - £129.99 Clearly, it's significantly more expensive than the competition, but is it worth it? Early reviews highlight the Apple HomePod has vastly superior sound quality and has been noted as having a deeper sound than a Sonos Play 3. The HomePod uses "spatial awareness" to sense its location in a room and adjust its audio accordingly. So it's a great speaker, but what else has it got? Needless to say, the HomePod is equipped with Siri and it remains to be seen if it will…

As we all know, data is expensive, especially when it's over your contract limit. Here are our top tips for minimising data usage on your iPhone:   1 - Switch to WiFi wherever possible. Sounds obvious, but get the log-in details to as many WiFi accounts/hotspots as you can. Whether you are at home, at work, at a friends house, in shops and cafes - it all helps.

Masri has since unpublished the code which has been called ChaiOs! The code has also been removed from GitHub. Masri wrote "I'm not going to re-upload it. I made my point. Apple needs to take such bugs more seriously.,"

Is Your Old Nokia Worth More Than Your iPhone?

iPhone News
There's a huge trend towards mobile phone recycling these days. It makes perfect sense, pick a phone recycling website, send away your phone and receive payment.  You could sell it yourself on eBay but who really wants the agro for a few £ extra? Hold on a minute though! Could it be more cost effective to just leave the phone in the drawer and forget about it for 10 years or so? This might sound crazy, but after searching eBay it seems some older phones are going up in value and may now be worth more than your old iPhone. Here's an example: A Nokia 5110 on Ebay selling for £99.99 VS Selling your iPhone 5S 16GB for only £50 On top of this, we found an Apple iPhone 3GS selling for £1000 - actually…

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have appeared in a number of FCC(Federal Communications Commission) documents recently. The FCC has labelled the S9 and S9+ with model numbers SM-G960F and SM-965F, respectively. As pointed out by blog Droid Life in December, Samsung's previous phones – including Galaxy S8, Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S7 – all appeared on the FCC one month before they were unveiled at a launch event.

Apple Confirms iPhone’s Slowed to Tackle Ageing Batteries

Apple Confirms iPhone’s Slowed to Tackle Ageing Batteries

iPhone News
Apple has confirmed the suspicions of many iPhone users and now reveals that it deliberately slows down some models of the iPhone as they age. It has been long suspected that Apple slows down older iPhone's which in turn may encourage people to upgrade. Apple have now said that it does slow down some models as they age, but only because iPhone's battery performance diminishes over time. This practice is said to prolong the life of an iPhone. A user on Reddit shared some performance tests that suggested their iPhone 6S had sped up once a new battery had been fitted. "I used my brother's iPhone 6 Plus, and his was faster than mine? This is when I knew something was wrong," wrote TeckFire. On top of this, Geekbench website analysed…
