Is iOS 8.0.2 still giving you problems?

iOS 8 has been under fire for having issues with cellular data, Wi-Fi connectivity, Safari, and the new HealthKit apps. Apple tried to correct these issues with iOS 8.0.1, which made things worse. It caused cellular radios and Touch ID not to work. Recently, the Cupertino firm rolled out iOS 8.0.2 to try and correct these issues once more, but ZDNet reports that it has been causing problems in Australia. The question is, is it the same case in other countries?

According to the site, Aussies have been experiencing a few minor issues with the update, but not too much of a problem that would give you headaches. The good news is that it seems to only affect iOS users in Australia, since we haven’t heard any problems elsewhere.

LG G Flex costs almost as much as the Apple iPhone 5S 64GB in the UK – LG G Flex or Apple iPhone 5S?

Fancy the curved LG G Flex? If you’re looking to get your hands on the new Android-powered smartphone by LG once it arrives in the UK, you can pre-order the device from Expansys. However, be prepared to shell out an arm and a leg for the smartphone. The retailer is asking £689.99 for the LG G Flex. By comparison, that’s almost as much as the Apple iPhone 5S 64GB. SIM-free, you get to buy Apple’s current flagship for £709.95.

Compared to most smartphones in the market, the LG G Flex is unique. Notable features include a 6-inch P-OLED 720p curved screen and a back case protected by a self-healing coating. It also comes with serious hardware such as LTE support, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 32GB of internal memory, and a 3,500 mAh battery. However, it runs Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean). We’re hoping it gets an update making it run Android 4.4 (KitKat) soon after its UK release.

These are by all means premium specs, which rival the best Android flagships around. However, with a price tag of £689.99, is it worth turning your back on the Apple iPhone 5S 64GB, which has beaten all the major players in benchmark scores?

Apple iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S – Specs Reviewed

So Apple have announced not one but two new iPhone’s to replace their previous flagship phone the iPhone 5.  The Apple iPhone 5S and 5C were unveiled during an event in California earlier this week but if you’re looking to upgrade from a previous generation iPhone model which would you choose?

Apple iPhone 4S and 5 users will no doubt want to opt for the new iPhone 5S but if you’re looking for a more affordable option then the iPhone 5C will fit more within budget depending on your personal taste that is.

But how do the two iPhone’s differ in terms of spec, design and functionality ….. we take a quick look at the ‘colourful’ budget phone and ‘forward thinking’ flagship phone.

Apple iPhone 5C versus iPhone 5S – So what’s the difference?

Spec comparison between the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S
Apple iPhone 5C Vs Apple iPhone 5S Infographic Comparison

Processor

Whilst the iPhone 5C sports Apple’s own designed A6 chip which was used in the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5S on the other hand features the new A7 chip with 64-bit architecture which offers 42x the processing power and graphics performance which is 53x that of the original iPhone, twice as fast as the A6.  And with the M7 motion coprocessor that sits alongside the new A7 chip users will reap the benefits of access to an even wider range of motion controlled apps.

Operating Platform

Both devices will launch with Apple’s latest iOS 7 mobile OS software on board but coupled with the 64-bit A7 chip and the iPhone 5S introduces TouchID in to the mix – a fingerprint identity sensor built into the Home button.  Apple iPhone 5 users however will have to wait until next week before they can pick up a software update for iOS 7.

Display

When it comes to displays, well both have a 4 inch widescreen multi touch retina display with a resolution of 11360 x 640 p and an image density of 326 ppi pixels per inch, making them pretty much a carbon copy of each other in that respect.

Camera

The iPhone 5S does offer the more superior iSight camera of the two, boasting 8 mega pixels with 1.5µ pixels, lower aperture, a True Tone flash instead of an LED flash and a sapphire crystal lens cover. When it comes to the HD FaceTime camera and HD video capture at 30 fps both handsets are evenly matched.

Memory

There will be an option between either a 16GB or 32GB version of the new iPhone 5S and 5C models however the iPhone 5S will also be available to buy with 64 GB of internal storage built-in.  All model variants will come with microSD card expansion capabilities providing an additional 64 GB of storage.

Battery

Non-removable Li-Ion batteries have be used in both devices and will provide up to 10 hours talk-time (3G), 8 hours of internet browsing and usage (3G), 10 hours on LTE and on WiFi, as much as 40 hours of audio playback and last for as long as 250 hours on standby, despite the iPhone 5S technically having the bigger battery of the two.

Dimensions and Weight

The iPhone 5C is certainly the larger and heavier of the two phones measuring 124.4 x 59.2 x 8.97 mm and weighing 132 g in comparison to the iPhone 5S’s 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm and 112 g weight.

Design

Made from a single part of hard-coated polycarbonate the iPhone 5C is certainly eye-catching, with a range of 5 bold and vibrant colours to choose from (pink, blue, green, yellow and white) it couldn’t be further from the usual iPhone design that we have become accustomed.  The iPhone 5S though is more in keeping with their trade mark iPhone build quality and overall look with the choice of 3 stunning metallic colour schemes from which to choose, space grey, silver and gold.
