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.

Switching from iPhone 7 to Galaxy S8


 

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!

How Much is The iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c Without a Contract?

I have been purchasing iPhones off contract since the iPhone 3Gs came out. I prefer the freedom of owning the device from day one and being able to do what I want with it whenever I want. As much as I would love to pay $200 for an iPhone, it is just not worth it getting into a contract. So how much are Apple’s latest devices if you want to own it from day one?

The iPhone 5s

  • $649.00 16GB
  • $749.00 32GB
  • $849.00 64GB

The iPhone 5c

  • $549.00 16GB
  • $649.00 32GB

The prices don’t include tax so the device will be around $50 (depending on where you live) more than what you see.

Apple iPhone 5s Leather Cases Will Come in Six Colors

Apple announced cases for the iPhone 5s which will come in six colors, are “precision made” from leather. The cases will cost $39 and will be available when the iPhone 5s launches.

Black iPhone 5s Case

Precision made. Beautifully crafted.

The leather is deliberately shaped to cover the volume buttons, the on/off switch, and the chamfered edge of iPhone 5s. Inside, a soft microfiber lining protects the exterior of your iPhone. Outside, you see color that’s more than surface deep, thanks to a dye that’s infused into the leather. And there are six complementary colors to choose from.

A case worthy of iPhone 5s.

iPhone 5s has a stunning exterior. So any case that dares to conceal it should be equally appealing. The Apple-designed leather cases more than meet the requirement. Made from premium leather, they look and feel luxurious. And because they’re precision crafted for iPhone 5s, your phone still feels incredibly slim even with the case on.

Check out all of the other colors on Apple’s website.

iPhone 5S Being Announced On June 20th?

It has been speculated recently that Apple might begin launching iPhones in the summer like the old days. The MacFan magazine, Macotakara, is said to have revealed that the launch date for the iPhone 5S will be held on June 20th.

The date does match up with past iPhone launches and most likely this new iPhone will have a feature that will have everybody talking. iOS 7 will also be announced and is said to have a more flat design style which I am looking forward to. We should find out in the coming months whether or not the event will take place in June.
