Apple has found itself in trouble thanks to its huge iOS 8 update. In other news, Samsung is bringing a stronger chip to the Galaxy Note 4 and Xperia Z3 phones are bending over backwards for you.
People usually don’t complain about updates, but this time around it seems like Apple has really taken things a bit far. Those of you who updated have realized a big chunk of your space has disappeared into oblivion. That is because iOS 8 is a pretty large update, taking away as much as 23.1% of your storage.
People have been complaining about this all over the net, but a couple Miami users decided to take the issue further and file a lawsuit. The class-action lawsuit inculpates Apple for not properly educating users about the size of iOS 8. It only involves 8 GB and 16 GB devices, though, as those would be the most affected.
Opinion: While I believe that iOS 8 wouldn’t be the same without so much data, Apple should have been more forward about it. Even downloading the update was a mess, as it required over 5 GB of data. People were forced to delete a lot of content just to update.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is one powerful smartphone, but new reports show that it will get even better. This may come as sad news to those who have already purchased a Note 4, but a new version is said to be coming in 2015, packed with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor.
Of course, this means the improved phablet will enjoy much faster and powerful performance. The device should be able to stream 4K content, play high-quality games and more. In addition, this chip will allow for faster LTE-A speeds.
Opinion: What’s not to like? These Qualcomm Snapdragon processors are doing wonders, and a device like the Galaxy Note 4 definitely deserves such power.
It seems that, much like Apple devices, Sony’s latest flagship smartphone is not immune to bending. Google+ user Dave Spedzia has shared a set of images that display the Sony Xperia Z3 device that looks much more like an LG G Flex – it is bent (curved).
The user says this was caused by regular usage and simply carrying it around in your pocket.
Opinion: Definitely not good news. We must say that at Mobile Geeks we love the Sony Xperia Z3, so we will be keeping up with this story as it unfolds. Meanwhile, please tell us if you have experienced something similar with your Xperia Z3.
