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 To: Install iOS 10 Beta on Your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad

iOS 10 will be launching in the fall for consumers, but developers can use iOS 10 starting today with the first beta. If you are not a developer there is still a way to get it on your device but keep in mind that beta software is buggy and could cause issues with apps and battery life. If you want your device to remain fully functional I would suggest staying away from the first couple of beta releases. You can sign up and wait to get into the public beta like Apple did last year. The good thing about the public beta is that Apple doesn’t release a version until it’s more stable to avoid any major problems. The public beta program also doesn’t require you to register your UDID or do anything manually as it gets pushed directly to your device; you can sign up for the public beta here once iOS 10 is announced on the 13th of this month.

Backup Your Device

Before doing all of this make sure to completely back up your device just to be safe. I’ve never had any issues when updating to a beta but it’s best to take as many precautions beforehand to avoid any problems if something goes wrong. You also want to make sure your device’s UDID is registered in Apple Servers as a developer device. There are many places that can register your UDID, we do it for $4. Do not install the beta before registering your device somewhere as it could cause your device to brick and Apple will not help you as that is not covered with warranty.

Finding Your UDID

You Can Find Your UDID by:
-Launching iTunes and connecting your iPhone.
-In the top pane, click on the little icon of your device. Locate where it shows name, phone number, & serial number.
-Reveal the UDID by clicking on the Serial Number. You should now see a long string of characters.

To get the iOS 10 onto your iDevice you’ll need to:

  1. Download the latest version of iTunes, MacOS, Xcode & Make Sure your UDID is Registered
  2. Download/install the iOS 10 Configurator Profile (LINK) Just send it to your phone via email and click on it. If that doesn’t work then send it via Airdrop.
  3. Download iOS 10 firmware for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch from this link –> iOS 10 Download Links
  4. Open iTunes and connect your iDevice via a USB cable
  5. Select your device from the top navigation pane on iTunes
  6. Hold down the Shift (Windows) or Alt/Option (Mac) key and hit the update or restore (depending on what you prefer) button on iTunes
  7. Browse and select the downloaded iOS 10 IPSW file.
  8. The iOS 10 beta installation will begin. Don’t disconnect your device or close iTunes until iOS 10 has been installed on the device!

Fake iPhone 6s Unboxed and Compared to Real iPhone 6s [Video]

We got our hands on China’s latest iPhone 6s clone/counterfeit. The latest clone is a full on smartphone that is running a heavily skinned version of Android. While both devices have some very different physical and software features, anyone who hasn’t seen one in real life could be easily fooled on sites like eBay and Rakuten so be careful when purchasing on online marketplaces!

Here is a quick comparison video showing some of the aspects that make the Fake iPhone 6s so different from Apple’s iPhone 6s. The fake in the video is the Space Gray while the real is the Rose Gold.
