Last year was the first time that I left my iPhone for more than a month and switch to Android. I used the Galaxy S7 for around 5 Months until the iPhone 7 came out. I've always liked Android but until a couple years ago it just wasn't as good as iOS and when I say good I mean the apps available on the OS were not as good as those on iOS.
I believe 2017 is the first year that it doesn't really matter what phone you choose because all of them are going to be pretty much the same. The iPhone 8 will look and function very similarly to the Galaxy S8 and both devices have lots of features which end up accomplishing the same thing. I sold my iPhone 7 a couple of weeks ago in preparation for the Galaxy S8 because it is the best smartphone ever made. The combination of materials, features, software, and design of the phone make it the most comfortable smartphone I have held and it sports the most beautiful screen I have seen. The iPhone 8 will most like match all this but we are still months away from an announcement this means it's currently Samsung's turn to shine.
I ended up purchasing the Silver since I have had a black phone for the past couple of years and Samsung has given all the S8 colors black fronts which is perfect. If you have yet to see one in person, I highly reccomend going to a store and checking it out. This is what phones will look like for the next couple of years until the foldable displays become more affordable. I’ll be making some videos on the S8 this coming weekend so stay tuned for those!
For a while now, all those iPhone 4S users have been teasing us with their ability to use Siri and Dictation. Sadly, we still haven’t gotten Siri but we are one step closer. Developer Eric Day has released a new jailbreak package called Siri0us, which you can get via a Cydia repository, and enables you to get Siri Dictation working on your iOS 5 device. Siri0us works just like it does on the iPhone 4S but it does have ads.
Instructions: 1. Have a jailbroken device running iOS 5 2. Go to Cydia and add http://apt.if0rce.comas a source. 3. Search for Siri0us and instal 4. Enjoy using dictation
Developers are hard at work trying to get Siri on the iPhone 4, meanwhile, if you have a jailbroken iOS 5 device then you should give this a try.
Today BigBoss released a Semitethered jailbreak for iOS 5. Basically, how this works is simple. In a tethered jailbreak; when you turn of your phone you get stuck at the apple logo or the itunes restore screen but with this “Semithered” jailbreak you are instead limited to what you can use. Once you reboot your phone you will be able and unable to do the following:
1) Can use phone, sms (text messages)
2) Can use every other stock app on iphone.
3) Cannot use mobile safari
4) Can use other appstore web browsers such as atomic web browser
5) Cannot use mail app. You could install a gmail app from appstore or such instead.
6) You cannot use any jailbreak tweak, app, cydia until you boot tethered.
7) While in the semitether booted state, you should not add a jailbreak ios5 notification such as sbsettings
to notifications during this state or your device will be stuck in a respring loop until you get home to
This is clearly much better than a tethered jailbreak because incase of a emergency you will be able to at least make a call or send a text message. At the moment it is in beta testing, this means there might be bugs and other disadvantages to doing this as well make sure you go to the source link and read all of their information.
A couple of weeks ago the developer Steven Troughton-Smith had successfully ported Siri’s user-interface onto the iPhone 4. The only downside is that they couldn’t get Siri to connect to Apple’s servers. But now they were finally able to get the server fully working on the iPhone 4 and iPod touch. Sadly, there is no word on wether they will be bringing this to all jailbreakers out there so we will just have to wait. (Check out the video below)
–I have been waiting for this for a while now. I gotta admit it’s pretty cool and theres not much to explain. This theme brings a OS X like interface to your iPhone. You do need to have a jailbroken device with Dreamboard and at the moment iOS 5 is not supported. This also allows you to use mission control and dashboard. Watch the video below to see it in action.
