iPhone 6s Plus vs. Galaxy Note 4: What We Know So Far

GottaBeMobile - 6 hours 31 min ago

iPhone 6s Plus vs. Galaxy Note 4: What We Know So Far is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

The month of July was a busy one for the rumored iPhone 6s Plus. It was also a busy month for Samsung’s current flagship, the Galaxy Note 4. With an iPhone 6s Plus rumored to be weeks away, we want to take a look at what buyers need to know as we push into August.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 arrived at the tail end of last year, a few days after Apple released its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in the United States. Samsung’s forth-generation Galaxy Note 4 garnered excellent reviews and it remains a solid option as we move towards its first birthday in September.

The Galaxy Note 4 is expected to face increased competition this fall. Samsung’s rumored to have a Galaxy Note 5 up its sleeve for August 13th and Apple’s reportedly planning a new big screen smartphone that we’re calling iPhone 6s Plus.

iPhone 6s Plus rumors have been emerging alongside iPhone 6s rumors for several months now though July was especially busy. In July, we saw iPhone 6s Plus specs and release date details start to firm up ahead of an official announcement.

All of these iPhone 6s Plus details are going to be extremely important to those of you looking to buy a new big screen smartphone in the days ahead. And so are the Galaxy Note 4 details that we’ve gathered up over the past two weeks.

With these new Galaxy Note 4 details and iPhone 6s Plus rumors in mind, we want to take a look at what we know so far about the iPhone 6s Plus vs. Note 4. This looks at specs but it also focuses on some of the smaller details that you might have bypassed in your research.

Here’s what you need to know about the iPhone 6s Plus vs. Galaxy Note 4 as we move into August.

iPhone 6s Plus Release Date

If you’re hunting for a new phone and the Galaxy Note 4 and rumored iPhone 6s Plus are on your radar, you’re probably interested in two dates. The day that Apple’s going to announce the iPhone 6s Plus and the day that it’s going to release the iPhone 6s Plus.

iPhone 6s Plus rumors haven’t been able to pinpoint either date just yet though thanks to a series of production rumors and a U.S. carrier, we’ve been able to narrow things down a bit as we make our way into the summer.

iPhone 6s Plus rumors in late July pointed to the start of iPhone 6s Plus production. Apple’s manufacturers partners will reportedly pick things up in August. This doesn’t confirm an iPhone 6s Plus release date in September but it certainly leaves the door open.

At the end of July, we saw T-Mobile start offering a deal that allows iPhone 6 Plus buyers to upgrade to the iPhone 6s Plus before the end of the year. The offer lasts until September 8th which means that we probably won’t see the iPhone 6s Plus release date land before then.

Apple typically gets its new iPhones out before the end of its fiscal year. Apple’s fiscal year ends on September 28th which means that we could see the iPhone 6s Plus arrive to take on the Galaxy Note 4 sometime between September 8th and September 28th. It’s a broad window but it fits the profile.

Nothing is confirmed but if you’re interested in these two phones, September is the month that you should be preparing for.

iPhone 6s Plus vs. Galaxy Note 4 Specs (Rumored)

If you’ve been doing your homework then you probably know a few of the Galaxy Note 4’s important specs. It comes with a high-resolution display, octa-core processor, 16MP camera, S Pen stylus, and more.

The iPhone 6s Plus is rumored to have some new hardware on board and today we want to run down how the device compares to the Galaxy Note 4 right now. These are rumored specifications but we’ve only included the ones that are the most credible.

iPhone 6s Plus (Rumored)
  • 5.5-inch Retina Display
  • Force Touch displays
  • A9 processor with Qualcomm chip (faster LTE, improved battery)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 12MP rear camera/ 5MP FaceTime camera
  • 16/32GB // 64GB // 128GB storage
  • iOS 9
  • Design similar to iPhone 6 Plus
Galaxy Note 4
  • 5.7-inch Quad HD display
  • Exynos 7 octa-core processor
  • 3GB RAM
  • 16MP rear camera / 5MP front-facing camera
  • 32GB storage with microSD card slot
  • 3,220 mAh removable battery
  • S Pen stylus
  • Android Lollipop

Analysts believe that the iPhone 6s Plus’ biggest changes will include the Force Touch display, the upgrade to 2GB of RAM from 1GB, and the changes to the iPhone’s camera. The iPhone has used a 8MP sensor for years now and its FaceTime camera has fallen behind rivals like the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S6.

We still don’t have any information about the iPhone 6s Plus’ battery though rumors do point to some battery life upgrades.

iPhone 6s Plus design rumors continue to hint at a 5.5-inch display with the same resolution as the iPhone 6 Plus. They also point to a similar design which means that we probably won’t see a microSD card slot or a removable battery.

While the iPhone 6s Plus could be slightly thicker than the iPhone 6 Plus, it’s not expected to come close to the 8.5mm Galaxy Note 4 frame.

With iPhone 6s Plus design rumors firming up, we recommend going hands-on with the Galaxy Note 4 and iPhone 6 Plus right now to see which one feels better in the hand and in the pocket.

Cheaper & Better Galaxy Note 4

While the iPhone 6s Plus is going to be a tempting device, it’s important to note that the Galaxy Note 4 is getting better, not worse, with age.

In July and August, we’ve seen a number of Galaxy Note 4 deals emerge. We don’t know the price of the iPhone 6s Plus (we’re guessing it’ll be $299.99 on-contract like the iPhone 6 Plus) but you can assume that it will be more expensive than the Galaxy Note 4.

We’re starting to see Galaxy Note 4 deals knock the price down. AT&T is currently offering the Galaxy Note 4 for $50 on-contract. That’s $250 off the normal price of the phone. And with a new Galaxy Note 5 on the way, we wouldn’t be surprised if more Galaxy Note 4 deals emerge before, and after, the iPhone 6s Plus release.

The Galaxy Note 4 itself is also improving thanks to new software. Earlier this week, Sprint rolled out a massive Galaxy Note 4 Android 5.1.1 update that brings fixes and enhancements to the flagship phone. For those curious, here’s the full change log:

  • OS upgrade to Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop)
  • Security Enhancements
  • Device stability improvements, bug fixes
  • New and / or enhanced features
  • Further improvements to performance
  • Security fix (Stagefright)

We expect this Android 5.1.1 update to hit more Galaxy Note 4 devices in the future and it should help to make the Galaxy Note 4 a little more attractive this fall.

Carriers Making Changes

In July and August, we saw U.S. carriers make changes to the way that you’ll buy the iPhone 6s Plus and Galaxy Note 4.

AT&T is now charging $45 to activate a new phone on a two-year contract. It’s also charging a new $15 upgrade fee for AT&T Next. This will make both phones a little more expensive than you probably realized.

We’ve also heard that two-year contracts are on the outs at Verizon. A source recently told Gotta Be Mobile that the company’s recent changes to its data plans are a step in that direction. We wouldn’t be surprised if the company gets rid of them in time for the iPhone 6s Plus release.

Keep these changes in mind as we push towards the iPhone 6s Plus release.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } 15 Reasons Why You’ll Love the Samsung Galaxy Note 4Durable Design1 / 15

This year, Samsung came out with a new design language that features both glass and metal. While the Galaxy Note 4 might not feature the same build materials as the Galaxy S6, there are a few reasons why we still love it. 

While the faux leather back isn't as nice as the Gorilla Glass back found on the Galaxy S6 or the brushed aluminum of the iPhone 6, it is extremely durable. The metal band that runs along the sides of the phone is a nice compliment to the plastic. 

The Galaxy Note 4's design also feels extremely nice in the hand. It's not slippery like the metal iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

We've been using the phone for a number of months now and there is virtually no damage to speak of. It's not as premium as Samsung's current flagship design but it's still extremely solid and it's going to be fine for most people.

Galaxy Note 5 Leaked Ahead of Release Date

GottaBeMobile - 8 hours 1 min ago

Galaxy Note 5 Leaked Ahead of Release Date is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

With the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 launch date confirmed for August 13th in New York City, the rumors are in full swing. For months leaks and reports have been floating around, including some images, but today our first live photos of the Galaxy Note 5 have surfaced giving us a look at the phone. This leak also confirms some bad news regarding features.

Over the course of the last four years each Galaxy Note launch has arrived in September, with the smartphone being released in October. However, in 2015 the phone will be here sooner than many expected, and now we’re getting our first solid look at Samsung’s latest phablet weeks ahead of the release date.

Read: Galaxy Note 5 vs LG G4: What We Know So Far

These aren’t the first images we’ve seen of Samsung’s new Note, but this time they’re actually of the device out in the wild and being used by a tester, which means this is likely a final version of the product that will be announced next week. Read on for more details and additional photos of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

Some press photos emerged over the weekend from famed leakster @evleaks, but now we’re getting actual images of the Galaxy Note 5 up close and personal. The leakster was able to share a few important specs and details about what this phone will, and won’t have.

Just like the Samsung Galaxy S6 that was released earlier this year, the new Galaxy Note 5 looks to deliver the same premium look and feel. Samsung has ditched the plastic design in favor of chamfered aluminum edges and glass covering the front and rear of the device. However, that comes with tradeoffs. The Galaxy S6 didn’t have a micro-SD slot or a removable battery, two things every Galaxy smartphone has offered for years.

Looking at the photos above, comments from the leakster, and reports from earlier rumors all seem to suggest the same bad news for potential Galaxy Note 5 buyers. This leakster confirms the Note 5 does not have a micro-SD slot, but it should have the same 32/64/128GB storage options from carriers as the Galaxy S6.

That isn’t all either. The popular infrared sensor on the top of all Galaxy S and Note devices for years, used as a remote control for an array of devices, is also missing from the new Galaxy Note 5. This is an odd thing to remove, considering its popularity, and because Samsung kept it for the Galaxy S6.

Those few things aside, the new Galaxy Note 5 is stacking up to be one of the best smartphones released in 2015. Here’s everything we know so far.

Galaxy Note 5 Specs (Rumored)

  • 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD S-AMOLED Display
  • Samsung Exynos 8-core processor with 4GB of RAM
  • 32, 64, 128GB storage options (No Micro-SD slot)
  • 16 Megapixel OIS Camera (like the Galaxy S6)
  • 8 Megapixel front-facing camera
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop
  • Premium Galaxy S6-like all glass and aluminum design
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • IR Sensor missing, but UV and Heart Rate Sensor still included
  • 3,220 mAh battery (this leak says 3,000 mAh battery)
  • S-Pen Stylus
  • more

This leak once again confirms the new spring-loaded S-Pen stylus, and also confirms a regular micro-USB charging port on bottom, not a USB Type-C port as earlier rumors suggested. One thing worth mentioning is this leak states the battery will only be 3,000 mAh in size, which is the smallest battery of any Galaxy Note. This is likely due to the new glass and aluminum design, but many buyers will likely be upset to see battery life go backwards, not forward.

Galaxy Note 5 (left) and Galaxy S6 Edge+ (Right)

In closing, we’ve also been hearing the Galaxy Note 5 won’t be alone next week. Samsung will reportedly also launch a new Galaxy S6 Edge+ with a big 5.7-inch display with curves on both sides, similar to the Note Edge released in 2014. This device will be very similar to the Galaxy Note but missing the S-Pen stylus, and have a few differences that resembles the Galaxy S6 lineup, not the Note.

So far all reports and rumors suggest the Galaxy Note 5 will be announced and released in August, not a month later like previous years, and we’re hearing August 21st for AT&T and others. Stay tuned for more details, and we’ll be live in New York City with all the details as they’re confirmed.

Windows 10 on Xbox One Sneak Peek Arrives

GottaBeMobile - 10 hours 6 min ago

Windows 10 on Xbox One Sneak Peek Arrives is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.

With it’s slate of exclusive Xbox One games for 2015 and 2016 confirmed, Microsoft is talking more about the Windows 10 update coming later this year. It’s also revealing a few must-have accessories for Xbox One owners and longtime fans.

Microsoft provided users with another brief look at the interface changes and features they can expect when and after Windows 10 launches on the Xbox One earlier today at Gamescom 2015. Gamescom 2015 is the yearly European video game tradeshow that mirror’s America’s own Electronic Entertainment Expo. Though this wasn’t the first time we’ve seen Windows 10 on Xbox One, this is a more feature complete vision of what the company is planning for release this November.

A post on Microsoft’s Xbox Wire site reveals the details. The Xbox One home screen itself has been completely redesigned. Rather than putting the focus on a top navigation and forcing everyone to drill down into individual apps, Microsoft has come up with a hybrid approach. Along the top navigation set different categories identical to what was available on the Xbox 360. Home, Community, Watch Games, Movies & TV, Apps and Music have their own panels. For now, there’s no specific Store tab. Flanking the top navigation is a constant update on controller battery power and the current time.

The navigation on the far left offers Xbox Live search, Friends, Messages, Activity Alerts, Settings and app snapping. Apps will now apparently snap to the left side of user’s screen instead of the right. That could be a sticking point for some, but it shouldn’t effect overall functionality one bit. The Xbox One allows users to multitask by snapping an app to the side of their screen even when they are playing a game.

The center of panel of today’s released Windows on Xbox One screenshot is the most telling. Rather than linking to individual games and promotions. Microsoft is directly integrating Game Hubs into the experience. In the center there’s a link to the Forza Motorsport 6 Game Hub. Below that is a link to Ori and The Blind Forest’s Game Hub. Microsoft appears to be trying to put the focus on the gaming community itself rather than just the titles and any on-going sales. Game Hubs are already available on the Xbox One, but they are a bit hard to find. They’re an excellent way to get details about a game directly from the developer.

In the Community area Microsoft will focus on the Activity Feed and the titles that are trending at that particular moment. Watch will put the focus on the different App Channels that now live within the Xbox OneGuide. App Channels provide quick access to YouTube videos and other content without first diving into the app. OneGuide itself will get picture-in-picture viewing when users are browsing for more shows.

On stage Microsoft revealed that early next year gamers will get to record television shows directly from broadcast stations and store them for viewing on Windows 10 devices.

All told, Windows 10 on Xbox One looks like a pretty hefty upgrade, and nowhere the massacre for entertainment that some expected it might be. Microsoft sort-of backed away from pushing the Xbox One as the one place to enjoy all kinds of entertainment. It seems the company is still dedicated to that vision, it’s just learned not to repeatedly say that at events specifically for gamers.

To compliment Windows 10 on Xbox One, Microsoft is planning an updated Xbox One Chatpad. The company is hoping that more people will appreciate attaching a physical keyboard to their controller more than having to pull out a smartphone or tablet just to send a message.

Microsoft is taking pre-orders for the Xbox One Chatpad now for $34.99.

New MacBook Back to School Deal Offers Big Discounts

GottaBeMobile - 10 hours 15 min ago

New MacBook Back to School Deal Offers Big Discounts is a post by Craig Lloyd from Gotta Be Mobile.

While Apple recently launched its own back to school sale recently, B&H Photo doesn’t want to be outdone, so it has launched a back to school sale of its own.

Apple is currently giving students a free pair of $200 Beats Solo2 headphones when they purchase a new Mac, which can already be bought at a discount if students take advantage of education pricing.

B&H Photo, which is an authorized Apple reseller, has discounts of their own on MacBooks and iPads, offering up to $300 off.

The back to school sale has a handful of MacBooks and iPad models on sale, including the iPad mini 3 for $70 off on select models, meaning you can get 16GB WiFi + Cellular model for just $429. You can also get a 128GB WiFi + Cellular iPad Air for just $449, which is $280 off the normal price! Other models on sale, but the variety is rather limited.

As for MacBooks, you can get a 2015 11-inch MacBook Air for just $799, which is $100 less than what you’d normally pay. 13-inch MacBook Airs are also discounted by $100 and start at $899.

If you need something with a bit more power, B&H has MacBook Pros on sale as well, including an entry-level 2015 13-inch model for $1,199, as well as 2014 13-inch model for $1,449 that comes with a 2.8GHz Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, and 512GB of flash storage.

The biggest discount, however, is for a 2014 15-inch MacBook Pro with a 2.5GHz Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, 512GB of flash storage, and 750M graphics for $1,999, which is $300 off the normal price. That’s not quite as good as Apple’s deal when you factor in the cost of the Beats headphones, but if you’re looking for a solid discount right off the bat, this is a big one.

These B&H deals are happening right now, whereas Apple’s back to school sale doesn’t begin online until Thursday, so if you can be patient for a couple of days, you can score a free pair of headphones with your Mac purchase.

That sounds pretty good and all, but if you won’t really use those free headphones then Apple’s deal probably isn’t something you’re too interested in, which is where B&H can come through for you, offering you a hard and fast discount on a MacBook or iPad.

Of course, you could always resell the Beats headphones when you get them, but you may not get the full $200 back for them. Just like with a new car, they lose their value right as you roll them off the lot.

Furthermore, eBay listings can give you an idea of what new Beats headphones are selling for. You could get as much as $150 for your Beats Solo2 headphones brand new, but you’ll likely get less for them, since most listings I found were selling for around $120. Still, if you’re getting $100 back for them, that’s $100 that you didn’t originally have.

As for other Apple-focused back to school deals going on, there isn’t much out in the pasture right now. Best Buy is offering student deals on MacBooks, discounting models by $100 or so, which isn’t bad at all, but not quite what you could get at B&H.

If you’re still deciding which MacBook to buy in the first place, we can help you out there. The MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro are entirely different beasts, so it depends on what you’ll be doing with your laptop when you’re in college. Essentially, the MacBook Air is great for portability, but it isn’t as powerful as a MacBook Pro, which can be great for intensive work like graphic design and CAD, both of which will probably require a MacBook Pro.

How to Watch the Gamescom 2015 Xbox Press Conference

GottaBeMobile - 17 hours 59 min ago

How to Watch the Gamescom 2015 Xbox Press Conference is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.

With plans to skip the Tokyo Game Show later this year confirmed, Gamescom 2015 is Microsoft’s last stop on a worldwide tour. At the Games Developer Conference earlier this year it looked to impress game makers themselves. At E3 2015 the company introduced the world to its 2016 video games line-up. What the company has in store at Gamescom 2015 remains a mystery, mostly. What we do know is that anyone and everyone who wants to catch Microsoft’s Gamescom 2015 Xbox Media Briefing absolutely can.

Here’s how to watch Microsoft’s Gamescom 2015 Xbox Press Conference no matter where you are or what device you have.

On Xbox One and Xbox 360

Microsoft’s Gamescom 2015 Xbox Press Conference begins at exactly 10 a.m. today for those on Eastern Standard Time. On America’s west coast, that works out to 7AM Pacific Standard Time.

On the Xbox One and Xbox 360 themselves users can catch all of the briefing content and games that Microsoft has to show. To be clear, this isn’t done through each console’s web browser, but through an app called the Xbox Live Events Player. The app is available free for each console with just a download. The Xbox One also has an Xbox Live Eventers Interactive Player, that’ll also stream the event just fine. Watching through the Interactive version of the app lets users share their thoughts on what they see in real time.

You don’t need an Xbox Live account to stream the briefing at all. Besides the Gamescom 2015 Xbox Press Conference, Microsoft plans to show off more content during smaller daily shows too. Called Xbox Daily Live @ Gamescom, these will air through the Live Event Player apps on August 5th and August 6th at 12PM Eastern Standard Time.

On the Web

For those who are away from their console, Microsoft will offer both daily shows at its Gamescom 2015 press conference directly through Xbox.com. According to Microsoft, whether you have a Windows machine or iPhone, you can watch the briefing without the need for an app.

If you have the Xbox Live Events Player installed on your notebook, desktop or tablet running Windows 10 or Windows 8.1 you can uninstall it now. The app itself only launches the web page streams. What’s more, its redirecting to the last HaloFest event instead of Microsoft’s Gamescom 2015 coverage.

What to Expect

What we can expect from Microsoft during its Gamescom 2015 press conference remains somewhat unclear.

We do know that Microsoft has more information and footage coming for some big name titles launching in 2016 and beyond. Crackdown and Scalebound fans can expect the company to at least show new trailers and possibly some gameplay for those titles. Having been delayed into next year, Quantum Break should feature pretty heavily in the event too since Microsoft will use it to boost its spring 2016 games line-up.

Platform announcements are a little less clear. Microsoft’s description of the event hints at both Xbox One and Windows 10 announcements during the show. That makes sense as Windows 10 includes Xbox Live integration so that developers can connect players directly to Xbox Live. Fable Legends, Gears of War Ultimate Edition and Gigantic are all confirmed to have Xbox Live functionality, but we still don’t have a release date for any of them. Perhaps Microsoft will use Gamescom 2015 to finally reveal when those titles are coming.

On the console side, it would make sense for Microsoft to share more footage of this year’s looming software update to the Xbox One. At E3 2015 the company revealed that the Xbox One would get an emulator that allows it to run digital versions of Xbox 360 games. The company also showed off the new design for the software the Xbox One runs on. It’s possible that we could at least get another glimpse at this new software during Gamescom 2015 too.

10 iOS 8.4.1 Release Date Tips

GottaBeMobile - Mon, 08/03/2015 - 23:34

10 iOS 8.4.1 Release Date Tips is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

With the release of a second beta, the iOS 8.4.1 release date is getting closer for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. A release could come at any time which means that iOS 8 users need to be prepared. Today, ahead of the update’s arrival, we want to offer some tips that will help you on the iOS 8.4.1 release day.

On June 30th, Apple released its highly anticipated iOS 8.4 update. The update delivered the company’s new Music platform and it also brought enhancements to iBooks and bug fixes for lingering iOS 8 problems. Many people thought that the update would be the last one before the arrival iOS 9 but we now know that that won’t be the case.

Last month, Apple confirmed another iOS 8 update dubbed iOS 8.4.1. The company didn’t confirm it with an announcement or a red carpet. Instead, it confirmed the release with an iOS 8.4.1 beta release for developers. The beta release didn’t come with an official release date attached.

The iOS 8.4.1 release date is unknown and it could come at any time. We don’t expect Apple to make an iOS 8.4.1 release announcement before its arrival which means that you iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners need to be on your toes.

With a release imminent, now is a great time to start preparing for Apple’s next and perhaps final iOS 8 upgrade. We’ve already taken a look at a few things you should do before the iOS 8.4.1 release date and today we want to tell you about a few things you should do on the iOS 8.4.1 release date itself.

iOS 8.4.1 isn’t a big update but it could have a big impact the performance of your phone or tablet. The more prepared you are the better. Here are a few iOS 8.4.1 release date tips to keep in mind as we move into August towards Apple’s next iOS 8 update.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } You Can Test Out iOS 8.4.11 / 10

You might not know this but you can test out the iOS 8.4.1 update and drop back down to iOS 8.4 thanks to a loophole that Apple typically leaves open for a week or two. 

Thanks to the downgrade process, iOS 8.4 users can download the iOS 8.4.1 update, try it for a few days, and then move back to iOS 8.4 if there is a noticeable drop in performance. It's a move that we've made several times on both iPhone and iPad.

Look into the downgrade process now or on the iOS 8.4.1 release date. Remember, you'll only have a limited time to drop down so you'll want to get familiar with the process before the update comes out or on the iOS 8.4.1 release date itself.

Moto G 2015: 5 Things You Need to Know

GottaBeMobile - Mon, 08/03/2015 - 22:27

Moto G 2015: 5 Things You Need to Know is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

Now that the all-new Moto G 3rd Gen for 2015 is finally available and starting to sell out, buyers are likely considering it as their next smartphone. It has many important upgrades that make it one of the better phones under $200. Here we want to go over five things buyers need to know, including where to buy it, now that it’s starting to sell out already.

In late July the newest Moto G was finally announced and released after months of rumor and speculation. This is the 3rd Moto G from the smartphone manufacturer, and arguably its best budget smartphone yet.

Read: Moto G 2015 Hands-on: Budget Price, Premium Phone

This year Motorola improved the device in all areas, most notably the camera and battery life, added multiple impressive new features, and it runs the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop all for the same stunning low $179 price point as previous years. Read on for more details about the new Moto G.

With the original Moto G in 2013 Motorola had a real winner. A budget-friendly smartphone that offered more than anything else we’d seen for under $200, and it went on to be Motorola’s most successful smartphone ever released. A move many manufacturers have tried to copy. The 2015 Moto G that is better and faster than the first two, offers more customization, additional features, a great camera, water-resistant capabilities, and an overall better experience all with the same aggressive price.

We’ve been enjoying Motorola’s latest Moto G smartphone for the past week, and ahead of a full review sharing everything about this phone, we wanted to go over a few important details for prospective buyers. Check out our hands-on video below, then continue on for five things you should know, including where to buy one.

While flagship phones with huge displays and 8-core processors from Samsung and everyone else are exciting, not everyone needs or wants the latest and greatest, nor can everyone afford the $600-$800 price tag.

As a result Motorola has confused on the mid-range market, and that brings us the Moto G. Only this year it’s as premium as a smartphone can get, but still costs under $200. Motorola managed to add an aluminum frame to the design, made the device IPx7 water resistant, and gave it MotoMaker customization but kept the price at $179. It’s absolutely worth the price if you ask us, and here’s more details.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } Moto G Display1 / 5

One of my biggest concerns with the new Moto G was the 5-inch 720p HD display. In a world where most smartphones are 1080p, or even Quad-HD display's with a 2k resolution, is 720p enough?

The answer to that question, is yes. Yes the Moto G 2015 has a great screen. It might not be 1080p like some of the competition, but the 1280 x 720p HD screen still looks great, especially considering the price. Some games may not look as great as they could with a higher resolution display, but I've yet to run into any real problems. Websites look fine, YouTube and Netflix has no problems. It has been a good experience.

We were worried that with all the improvements this year to the phone, Motorola would skimp on the screen, and that didn't happen either. How they've managed to pack all of this into a device that stays at $179 is pretty impressive, and the screen certainly won't disappoint.

It's nothing amazing, but given the price it's more than enough for anyone considering the Moto G.

iPhone 6s vs. Samsung Galaxy S6: What We Know So Far

GottaBeMobile - Mon, 08/03/2015 - 20:13

iPhone 6s vs. Samsung Galaxy S6: What We Know So Far is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

July was a busy month for the rumored iPhone 6s and the Samsung Galaxy S6. With an iPhone 6s release reportedly getting closer, we want to take a look at some of the key things buyers need to know as we make our way into the month of August.

In February Samsung issued its response to the iPhone 6 and top flight Android devices with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. The two flagships emerged at MWC 2015 with a ton of firepower and they received excellent reviews upon their release in April.

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have been dueling the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for several months now though it looks like they’re going to see increased competition from Apple and its iconic smartphone.

The iPhone 6s isn’t confirmed but thanks to an avalanche of leaks and rumors, it’s abundantly clear that Apple’s planning a 2015 iPhone release to replace last year’s models.

Last month we saw a series of iPhone 6s rumors outline potential specs and release date details. These details, and others, are going to be extremely important to those that are looking into a brand new smartphone in the days and weeks ahead.

We also saw a number of Galaxy S6 related details emerge in July. And with those and the iPhone 6s rumors in mind, we want to take a look at how these devices are comparing right now. This includes a look at specs but it also takes a look at some of the things that haven’t been in the spotlight.

Here’s what you need to know about the iPhone 6s vs. Galaxy S6 as we move into August.

iPhone 6s Release Date

If you’re trying to decide between buying the Galaxy S6 or waiting for the iPhone 6s to arrive, know that you probably only have a few short weeks left before you’ll be able to compare the two.

Apple hasn’t out media invites so we don’t have a confirmed iPhone 6s launch date. What we do have though is Apple’s confirmed iOS 9 release date (fall), the end of Apple’s fiscal year (September 28th), and a recent announcement from T-Mobile. We also have several rumors that point to the start of iPhone 6s production.

Last month, we saw a number of rumors hint at the start of iPhone 6s production ahead of the device’s release date. Apple’s manufacturing partners are expected to pick up the pace in August, a sign that a release will probably come next month.

The iPhone 6s release date options are down to just a few days.

In late July, T-Mobile started offering a deal that allows consumers to buy the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus now and then switch to the new models before the end of the year. The program lasts until September 8th which means that there’s a very good chance the iPhone 6s release won’t come before then.

Apple typically releases its iPhones before the end of its fiscal year. The company’s fiscal year ends on September 28th which means that an iPhone 6s release is likely to take place before then. And with an iOS 9 release date confirmed for the fall (fall starts on September 23rd), it’s looking like Apple’s iPhone 6s release will be similar to last year’s iPhone 6 release.

Nothing is set in stone but all signs are pointing to September and prospective Galaxy S6/iPhone 6s buyers will want to prepare as though the iPhone 6s will be out before the end of next month.

iPhone 6s vs. Galaxy S6 Specs

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is a flagship from 2015 and thus, it comes with some high-powered specifications including a Quad HD resolution display, excellent 16MP camera, and a Exynos 7 octa-core processor that helps deliver high-performance gaming, multitasking and more.

The iPhone 6s is a rumored flagship from 2015 and thus, it’s rumored to have some high-powered specifications including two Retina display sizes, a new 12MP camera in the rear, 5MP camera up front, and a new A9 processor that could come equipped with a Qualcomm chip that helps deliver faster LTE data.

Here’s a rundown of the specifications on board the Galaxy S6 and rumored iPhone 6s. Key differences include screen resolution, Force Touch display tech, and storage:

Galaxy S6
  • 5.1-inch Quad HD display – 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution at 577 PPI.
  • 5.1-inch Galaxy S6 Edge variant with curved display
  • 16MP rear camera / 5MP front-facing camera
  • Exynos 7420 octa-core processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 32GB / 64GB / 128GB internal storage
  • Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
iPhone 6s (Rumored)
  • 4.7-inch Retina Display (iPhone 6s)
  • 5.5-inch Retina Display (iPhone 6s Plus)
  • Force Touch displays
  • A9 processor with Qualcomm chip (faster LTE, improved battery)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 12MP rear camera/5MP FaceTime camera
  • 16/32GB / 64GB / 128GB storage
  • iOS 9

Most analysts believe that the Apple’s Force Touch display tech, the new processor and bump in RAM, and the improvements to the iPhone’s camera will be the three biggest changes on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Design Differences & Similarities

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge arrived with a brand new design language that offers a glass back and metal edges. It’s a premium form factor that clearly was inspired by what Apple’s done with the iPhone design over the years. Samsung’s change came with some tradeoffs though.

The Galaxy S6 design doesn’t feature a replaceable battery and it comes without a microSD card slot which means you’re stuck with the internal storage and the cloud. The Galaxy S6 does, however, come with a touch-based fingerprint sensor that’s far better than the sensors on the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5.

This year’s iPhone probably won’t be the iPhone 7 as it’s not expected to come with a full on redesign. Instead, the iPhone 6s is expected to retain a design that’s similar to the all-metal form factors of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

This also means that the iPhone 6s, like the Galaxy S6, probably won’t come with a removable battery or expandable storage. There’s also a very good chance it will feature the company’s well-known Touch ID fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button.

What this means is that you can go into a store right now and get hands-on with the Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus. Get acquainted with how they feel in your hand and in your pocket. If you do, you’ll likely have a pretty good idea about how the iPhone 6s design will compare to the Galaxy S6.

Changes to the Way You Buy

Now, for some other smaller but important details about the iPhone 6s vs. Galaxy S6 matchup.

First, you’ll want to know that carriers are prepping for the fall with some changes to the way you’ll buy the iPhone 6s or Galaxy S6.

AT&T recently bumped the price of its activation fee on a two-year contract up to $45 and enacted a new AT&T Next upgrade fee of $15. Both of these affect the Galaxy S6 and any potential iPhones that Apple’s planning to launch later this year.

A trusted source recently told Gotta Be Mobile that the death of two-year contracts at Verizon is near. We’re told that Verizon’s switch from Verizon Edge to Device Payment plans is the precursor to the upcoming change. Our guess is that Verizon will do this before the iPhone 6s arrives. We haven’t been able to confirm that though.

Cheaper Galaxy S6

With new Galaxy phones and iPhones on the way, Samsung saw it fit to cut the price of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge which means that they’ll almost certainly be cheaper than the iPhone 6s in some places.

We still don’t have a confirmed iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus price but Apple’s stuck to a $199.99 starting price point for its flagship so we’re not expecting anything more or less than that at this point.

Look for more Galaxy S6 deals to emerge in August and September as carriers and retailers react to the various launches taking place this fall.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ are expected on August 13th.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } 10 Phones You Shouldn’t Buy Right NowSamsung Galaxy Note 41 / 10

If you've been thinking about buying a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, it's in your best interest to hold off. A Galaxy Note 4 successor, and a Galaxy Note 4 price drop, are on the way. 

Samsung hasn't confirmed anything yet but all signs point to a Galaxy Note 5 launch on August 12th or August 13th. The company has reportedly moved the Galaxy Note 5 launch up to put some room between it and Apple's iPhone launch. 

Galaxy Note 5 rumors point to numerous upgrades including a design change, a brand new S Pen, an improved processor, and more. On paper, it looks like it will be an exciting new chapter in the Galaxy Note's legacy. It'll only be a few days before we find out for sure. 

The Galaxy Note 5's arrival should signal the end of the Galaxy Note 4's reign as a $299.99 phone. It should drop to $199.99 or cheaper at most carriers. We should also see retailers undercut carriers as well. So, if you don't like the Galaxy Note 5, you can always buy the Galaxy Note 4 for much less than its current price.

Explosive GTA Online Double Cash Finale Arrives

GottaBeMobile - Mon, 08/03/2015 - 19:54

Explosive GTA Online Double Cash Finale Arrives is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.

This may very well be the last week players of GTA 5’s GTA Online multiplayer are able to level up faster and build stash of cash double what they normally would. Video game developer Rockstar is describing this week’s Grand Theft Auto Online Heists Double RP & Cash Payout as “the grand finale.”

Rockstar announced the Grand Theft Auto Online Heists and Double RP & Cash promotion in a post on its Rockstar Newswire blog earlier today. Rockstar has run some promotion like this for weeks, letting users quickly get to new levels and afford the latest in gear by playing through the multipart, multiplayer Heist missions that it added to the game earlier this year.

Only users participating in the Pacific Standard Job from today until August 9th get the double rewards. The Heist finale itself is a bank robbery job in downtown Los Santos. To get to the Pacific Standard Job Heist leaders will need to make it through of the Pacific Standard Job’s individual missions. That includes stealing supplies for the job like motorcycles, destroying a convey and getting someone out of the Los Santos Police Department’s custody.

Besides getting double cash and double RP for the missions themselves, Rockstar is gifting anyone and everyone double GTA Online cash and experience points for completing the levels Elite Challenges too. For example, anyone who manages to complete the actual bank robbery in less than 10:15 stands to earn even more cash.

In GTA Online RP and cash are key to each player’s standing. Called RP for short, reputation is what you earn in the game as you complete more missions and try new things. Rockstar links what you can do in GTA Online to your RP level. That’s why you want to earn as much of it as possible. For example, you don’t actually get to purchase a parachute or manage a crew of your very own until you’ve hit level 11 by completing other activities.

For those who need to get ready for the Heist, Rockstar is also double on the reputation players earn by completing a Deathmatch in third place and killing someone using a car. Missions that are completed without any loss of life are key too. Stunt jumps, Survival encounters and exporting cars through Simeon also include double RP.

To entice players to spend a bit of the GTA Online cash that they earn, Rockstar is offering deep discounts on gear that’s purchasable in the game’s stores and websites. We don’t yet know how steep the discounts are since Rockstar is asking users to follow it on Twitter, like it on Facebook and following on Instagram to hear about these sales.

What’ll happen after this week’s bonuses finale in GTA Online remains unclear. It seems unlikely that Rockstar would start over fresh next week. This could be the last chance gamers have over the summer to level as quickly as possible. There are some speculating that Rockstar is running these events to give users a chance at affording new content it plans on adding sometime soon. We’ll have to wait to see if that’s true or not, but it at least sounds plausible.

All told, this final Grand Theft Auto Online double payout promotion is an excellent time to get back into the game. Playing now means spending less time earning items later. Even those who aren’t worried about the money should still take advantage: again, earning RP is the only way to unlock some features.

GTA Online comes free with every copy of GTA 5 sold for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and Windows PCs.

FIFA 16 Release: 9 Important Details

GottaBeMobile - Mon, 08/03/2015 - 14:17

FIFA 16 Release: 9 Important Details is a post by Josh Smith from Gotta Be Mobile.

The FIFA 16 release date is on the way and as we prepare for the FIFA 16 release in September we want to take a look at the most important details about the new FIFA game.

EA Sports promises a new game with Women’s National Teams, smarter AI that can deliver more realism and other major upgrades to gameplay that could convince players to actually use the midfield as more than an obstacle to getting to the attack.

As we look at the FIFA 16 release we’ll cover the real FIFA 16 release date as well as other aspects about the release including midnight release events and other key information that gamers will want to know.

Here is everything gamers need to know about the FIFA 16 release.

If you worry that there is nothing new in FIFA 16, or you just want to know what to expect from a FIFA 16 demo and other key details you can check out what we know and what we expect from EA Sports this year.

FIFA 16 comes to the Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and to PC. There is no option for FIFA 16 on Wii U this year. While the game arrives on most consoles, don’t expect all the same features from the Xbox One or PS4 version to arrive on the older consoles where there is not as much power to push the AI driven features that promise to change the gameplay.

This year we see the first Women’s National Teams in a FIFA game and this year a woman shares the FIFA 16 cover. Alex Morgan of the U.S. Women’s National Team is on the cover with Lionel Messi in the U.S.

Here are the most important FIFA 16 release details that gamers need to know in the run up to the release.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } FIFA 16 Release: 9 Important DetailsFIFA 16 Release Date1 / 9

The FIFA 16 release date arrives September 22nd in the U.S. and a few days later on September 25th in the UK, Ireland and other countries. This short delay is common when for FIFA 16 games even though soccer commands more attention in other countries.

Once you get past these two FIFA 16 release dates there are no more coming, so the wait is minimal.

Gamers can buy FIFA 16 on disc or digital and with the digital version there will be an opportunity to download the game early to start playing as soon as 12:01 AM Eastern rolls around. In addition to PSN and Xbox Live, FIFA 16 is on sale on Origin.

We may see disc and digital sales officially start at 12:01 AM Eastern no matter the location, which could allow gamers on the west coast to start playing at 9:01PM on Monday September 21st.

6 New Xbox One & PS4 Games Coming in August 2015

GottaBeMobile - Mon, 08/03/2015 - 14:00

6 New Xbox One & PS4 Games Coming in August 2015 is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.

There were some pretty slow weeks in gaming recently. We kicked off the summer with a few high-profile titles. Xbox One & PS4 games line-ups included Batman Arkham Knight back in June. Batman kept June from being too boring, but July was pretty quiet on the gaming front. What new games did arrive weren’t technically new. They were remastered, refreshed versions of games already available to users before.

The list of August, Wii U, Xbox One & PS4 games isn’t that extensive. With the slow summer months nearly behind us, we expect video game developers and publishers to begin detailing their titles in full ahead of the fall shopping season. August has an almost overwhelming number of remakes and rehashes, but there’s something new to experience too.

Madden 16 will lead the sports genre into a new year of releases. Microsoft’s Rare Replay and Gears of War Ultimate Edition will act as celebratory releases for some of the greatest franchises in gaming. PS4 games aren’t in abundance, but there is Until Dawn, an upgrade to the PS3 game that some users loved the first time around.

Here are the Wii U, Xbox One & PS4 games coming during the month of August in order of their release.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } Rare Replay for Xbox One - August 4th1 / 6

Debuting on August 4th is Rare Replay. As its name suggests, this game isn’t a new title for Microsoft’s Xbox One console. No, instead it’s a massive remake of classic games created by Rare, a studio Microsoft now owns. This year marks Rare’s 30th birthday as a studio.

Rare Replay, has titles going all the way back to 1983. Jetpac, Lunar Jetman, R.C. Pro-Am, Battletaods, Killer Instinct Gold, Perfect Dark and Banjo Kazooie are among the titles included in the compilation. In total there are 30 different titles included with the game for $30. In total there is 10,0000 in Gamerscore to be earned, though Xbox 360 achievements do carry over.

[ Purchase Rare Replay from the Xbox Store ]

1 / 6

Good luck choosing between these Xbox One and PS4 games coming during the month of August. Expect even more in September as we gear up for Destiny: The Taken King, Forza 6 and other big-name releases.

Why It’s a Great Time to Trade in Your Old iPhone

GottaBeMobile - Sun, 08/02/2015 - 16:15

Why It’s a Great Time to Trade in Your Old iPhone is a post by Josh Smith from Gotta Be Mobile.

This is an excellent time to trade in your old iPhone for top dollar, even though you will upgrade to the iPhone 6 and not the iPhone 6s. Soon we will see the value of older iPhones drop dramatically as many owners start to sell their iPhone to upgrade to a new iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus.

Although the new iPhone typically gets the most attention, this is also a time when a lot of users will upgrade to the iPhone 6, which should drop in price when a new iPhone arrives.

By trading in your old iPhone today you can get more cash and you can also pair this with iPhone 6 deals to save on a new iPhone without waiting for an iPhone 6s release date to push the price of the iPhone 6 down.

The iPhone 5 trade in value is up to $100 and the iPhone 5s is up to $170 from NextWorth, which makes an upgrade to the iPhone 6 more affordable. These values will change in the coming weeks, and NextWorth shares a look at what will likely happen to the trade-in values of the iPhone in the coming weeks.

As you can see in the chart above, the iPhone 6s release date will very likely push the value of your current iPhone down 10% by the time the iPhone 6s release date arrives and another 20% to 30% by the end of the year.

It is still too early to lock in the price of the iPhone trade in to pick up a new iPhone 6s on day one, but if you want to upgrade to an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, you can pair good trade-in values with deals to come out ahead.

Jeff Trachsel, NextWorth CMO, explains to Gotta Be Mobile why it makes sense to trade in now. 

“As the graphic depicts, iPhone residual values fall fastest in the months immediately before and after iPhone launches. For those looking for the best deal, selling now and upgrading to an iPhone 6 makes sense.

Retailers are starting to discount the iPhone 6 to make room for iPhone 6s inventory, and resale values for models like iPhone 5 and 5s have not yet started to decline significantly. Selling now can help defray the cost of new, and can even help fund a warranty program – negating the need to hold onto a backup phone.” 

Make sure you consider all the options as T-Mobile offers a trade-in deal of its own to get the iPhone 6 now and the iPhone 6s by the end of the year.

We expect the price of the iPhone 6 to drop $100 when the iPhone 6s release date arrives, but we are already seeing many retailers drop the price of the iPhone 6 to $99 on a two year contract.

Even though the iPhone 6 is almost a year old there are plenty of reasons to love this phone. Check out the slides below for our favorite iPhone 6 features. There are also exciting new iPhone 6 iOS 9 features coming.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } 17 Reasons Why You’ll Love the iPhone 6iOS 9 & Longevity1 / 17

At WWDC 2015, Apple announced a brand new iOS update that will be heading to the iPhone 6 this fall. 

iOS 9 is Apple's new operating system and it will follow the iOS 8.4 update that just arrived for the iPhone 6 last week. iOS 9 is coming with a number of different features though our favorite is a real tangible battery life boost for the iPhone 6. 

Once the iOS 9 update rolls out to the iPhone 6, you'll not only gain access to new battery saving features but also a full extra hour of battery life. That's absolutely huge for a device that's approaching its one year anniversary. 

iOS 9 is going to be the first in a long line of iOS updates for the iPhone. Apple's rolling out iOS 9 to the iPhone 4s, its fourth major iOS update, and that could mean an additional year of software support for the iPhone 6. Apple's tendency is to offer three years before kicking a device to the curb.

This is big for two reasons. One, it means that you can safely invest in the iPhone 6 right now or three months from now when the iPhone 6s comes out. And two, it means that the iPhone 6's software support still makes Android software support look silly. Android phones are lucky to get 24 months of support from carriers.

iPhone 5s: 5 Things You Need to Know This Month

GottaBeMobile - Sun, 08/02/2015 - 16:03

iPhone 5s: 5 Things You Need to Know This Month is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

Its been nearly two years since the release of the iPhone 5s and thanks to its hardware and Apple’s software support, the device is still kicking. July was a busy month for iOS and the iPhone 5s and today we want to take a look at a few things iPhone 5s buyers and owners need to know as we push onwards into the summer.

Two years ago, Apple launched the iPhone 5s with a handful of upgrades and its iOS 7 update. The device ushered in a new look to the iPhone’s features set and a new look for iOS. iOS 7 delivered a massive redesign on top of many new features.

Since then, Apple’s updated the iPhone 5s with a series of iOS updates including its iOS 8 operating system, the OS that rolled out alongside the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last September. The iPhone 5s is currently on iOS 8.4 but it’s set to receive two more updates in the immediate future.

With just weeks to go before the iPhone 5s celebrates two years of existence, we continue to see new and important details emerge for those with an interest in the iPhone 5s, its competitors and its software.

July was an extremely interesting month for the iPhone 5s and with that in mind, we want to take a look at some of the most important things iPhone 5s owners and buyers need to know as we push deeper into the month of August towards the release of Apple’s iOS 9 operating system.

iPhone 5s iOS 8.4.1 Update

The iPhone 5s iOS 9 release is just weeks away but it won’t be the next iOS update for Apple’s aging former flagship.

Instead, Apple will roll out an iOS 8.4.1 update, another version of iOS 8.4 that’s not expected to bring big changes to the iPhone 5s.

Apple first confirmed the iOS 8.4.1 release back in July with a release into the beta program for developers. Last week, iOS 8.4.1 beta 1 turned into iOS 8.4.1 beta 2, a sign that the company’s engineers and beta testers are making progress toward a public release.

We don’t have a firm iOS 8.4.1 release time or release date but we expect the company to push this out well before the iOS 9 update arrives this fall. We don’t expect Apple to confirm the update’s release date ahead of time which means that iPhone 5s users will want to be on the look out in August.

Developers have had a hard time tracking down changes in the iOS 8.4.1 beta which means that it will probably be a maintenance release. This means bug fixes and this means security enhancements. And it could mean a broken iOS 8.4 jailbreak. If your iPhone 5s is jailbroken, you’ll want to hold off when iOS 8.4.1 first arrives.

iPhone 5s iOS 9 Release

iOS 9 will probably follow directly after the iOS 8.4.1 update. We don’t have a specific date for the iOS 9 release either but we did see several new iOS 9 release details emerge in July thanks to the company’s beta and thanks to one of Apple’s carrier partners.

Apple’s iPhone 5s iOS 9 update will come with a number of exciting enhancements including a real battery boost to the device’s battery life. July’s iOS 9 betas also revealed several other features including new folders for Selfies and Screenshots, security enhancements, some small UI changes, and more. Apple probably isn’t done and we expect iOS 9 betas in August to reveal more about the iPhone 5s iOS 9 update.

The iOS 9 release is still on track for the fall and there’s a good chance that we’ll see it fall inside of the same window that we’ve mapped out for the iPhone 6s.

iPhone 6s Release Date

The iOS 9 release is expected to coincide with the release of Apple’s next iPhone or iPhones. Rumors point to the arrival of an iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, two devices that iPhone 5s upgraders should have their eyes on as we move deeper into the summer.

Last week, T-Mobile started allowing its customers to buy a new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus now and then switch to an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus. The U.S. carrier’s deal lasts until September 8th which means that the iPhone 6s Plus release date probably won’t land on a date before that.

We expect Apple to get its new iPhone out before the end of its fiscal year. Its fiscal year ends September 28th. This is important to iPhone 5s users and buyers.

It’s important to iPhone 5s buyers because it means that we’re probably only a few weeks away from new iPhone models. The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will probably outgun the iPhone 5s though the iPhone 5s should beat them on price.

It’s important to those that aren’t planning to ditch the iPhone 5s because it means that an iOS 9 release date is probably getting close. Apple always releases its new software alongside new hardware so we’re probably looking at an iPhone 5s iOS 9 release date in a little over a month.

iPhone 6 Deals

If you are planning to buy the iPhone 5s or ditch your iPhone 5s, you’ll be happy to know that your options are improving.

In July, we saw a number of excellent iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus deals. Retailers aren’t immune to the iPhone 6s rumor mill and we should start to see the market become a little kinder to those unwilling to pay full price for an iPhone in Apple’s current lineup.

One of the best iPhone 6 deals comes from Best Buy. The retailer is offering $100 off the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on Sprint and Verizon. That means that the iPhone 6 is as cheap as the iPhone 5s at Apple. In other words, it’s a bargain.

Those that can wait might want to wait for the iPhone 6s release. We’re not sure how the iPhone lineup might look after Apple’s announcement but there’s a chance that the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 5s will see their prices cut on the Apple Store.

Changes to How You Buy the iPhone

And finally, it’s important to note that carriers are starting to change the way you buy an iPhone ahead of the iPhone 6s release.

In July, Verizon killed off its Edge payment plans in favor of new Device Payment plans. This is likely a precursor to the company killing off its two year contract option for new smartphones.

A source recently told Gotta Be Mobile that the death of two year contracts is imminent and we wouldn’t be surprised if Verizon gets rid of them before the iPhone 6s arrives.

This change comes after Apple changed the way you buy the AT&T version of the iPhone on the Apple Store. AT&T customers are no longer able to buy the phone on a two year contract through the Apple Store.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } 10 Reasons Why You’ll Love the iPhone 5siOS 9 & Longevity1 / 10

The iPhone 5s is closing in on its second birthday and from the look of things, it's going to be celebrating at least a few more. 

At WWDC in June, Apple confirmed plans to release an iOS 9 update for the iPhone 5s in the fall. It also confirmed an iOS 9 update for the aging iPhone 4s. The iOS 9 update will be the iPhone 4s' fourth major update. 

That's big news for current iPhone 5s users and those who are thinking about picking it up because it means that the iPhone 5s could get two more years of software updates. Apple usually offers three but we've seen it shift to a four year for both iPhone and iPad. Android phones simply can't match this kind of support. 

What's more is that the iPhone 5s' next update could be a big one. iOS 9 is focused on delivering improved performance for older devices and the iPhone 5s, like Apple's other older iOS devices, stands to benefit from it. 

The iPhone 5s still has a lot of life left in it and that makes it an investment worth considering now and in the weeks and months down the road.

How to Customize the MacBook Trackpad

GottaBeMobile - Sat, 08/01/2015 - 16:15

How to Customize the MacBook Trackpad is a post by Craig Lloyd from Gotta Be Mobile.

The MacBook trackpad is one of the best on the market, but here’s how to make it better.

Laptop trackpads have always been somewhat lacking, but when it comes to the MacBook’s trackpad, it’s one of the best around. The glass surface makes it easy to swipe your fingers around, and the large surface area it takes up gives users plenty of room to navigate.

Furthermore, Apple improved the trackpad even more with the release of the 2015 MacBooks, which now come with Force Touch, which is similar to the display technology in the Apple Watch.

Essentially it’s pressure sensitive, so you can tap down on the trackpad to complete an action and then press down harder to complete a different action. For example, you can press down hard on an address in the Mail app to get a location, or use it in Finder to see a preview of whatever is inside a folder.

That’s cool and all, but you can actually make the trackpad even better by customizing what different taps and clicks do. Apple doesn’t allow you to do this right out of the box, but with some third-party software, you’ll be on your way.

Here’s how to customize the MacBook trackpad and optimize it for your own needs and uses.

The Mac app that we’ll be using to customize the MacBook trackpad is called BetterTouchTool. We’ve discussed this piece of software before, but it essentially lets you set up different macros of sorts. So, for example, you can set up a three-finger tap to act as the middle click on a mouse to open up a new tab, which is my personal favorite customization.

But first, we need to download BetterTouchTool and set it up so that you can get started on customizing your MacBook’s trackpad. Simply to the BetterTouchTool website and download the app by scrolling down a bit and clicking on the blue button that says Download BetterTouchTool.

After you install the tool and open it up, you’ll be asked if you want to enable window snapping, which allows you to quickly snap windows to full screen by dragging the window to the top of the screen. You can read our guide about this to learn more.

Next, you’ll need to give BetterTouchTool access to OS X’s accessibility features by going into System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy tab > Accessibility and placing a checkmark next to BetterTouchTool. After that, you’ll be good to go and can begin to configure BetterTouchTool.

When you fire up the tool, you’ll see a left-hand sidebar where you can add specific apps for trackpad gestures to work in, and to add a new gesture, simply click Add New Gesture off to the lower-right. If you want the gesture to work everywhere, just make sure you have Global selected in the left-hand sidebar.

When you click Add New Gesture, right below that you’ll have options to set up the gesture. Under Touchpad Gesture, you can select the type of gesture you want, such as a three-finger tap or even a four-finger tap, but there are a ton of other options to choose from.

To the right of that, you can either enter a keyboard shortcut that you want executed when you perform the touchpad gesture, or select a predefined action. After that, the gesture will be ready to go and automatically saved.

There are a ton of possibilities when it comes to BetterTouchTool, and this Reddit thread includes a handful of ways that other users are taking advantage of the software.

BetterTouchTool also works with a Magic Mouse, an Apple Remote, and even your keyboard so that you can set up custom keyboard shortcuts.

The Galaxy Note 5 Specs: Everything We Know Right Now

GottaBeMobile - Sat, 08/01/2015 - 15:53

The Galaxy Note 5 Specs: Everything We Know Right Now is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 isn’t official but it’s all but confirmed thanks to a mountain of credible leaks. With a release date getting closer we want to take a look at everything prospective buyers need to know about the Galaxy Note 5 specs.

As we push deeper into the year, we’re starting to hear about the devices coming ahead of the holidays. One of those devices is expected to be a successor for the Galaxy Note 4, a device that is currently known as the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

Galaxy Note 5 rumors have been emerging for several months now though they’ve only recently started to firm up. Samsung hasn’t announced any Galaxy Note 5 features or release date details but reports have done all the talking we need.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 launch date is all but confirmed for August 13th in New York City. There, the company is expected to debut a Galaxy Note 5, a Galaxy S6 Edge+ and a Gear A smartwatch. Samsung typically announces its Galaxy Note in late August or early September so this is a bit of a change.

The Galaxy Note 5 release date is rumored for August 21st. It’s not clear if U.S. carriers will be a part of the initial release but that doesn’t matter. Now is the time for U.S. consumers to start paying attention to Samsung and its next flagship.

We recently took a deep dive into the device’s release date and today we want to take a look at the all-important Galaxy Note 5 specs. If you haven’t been following along, this will catch you up as we provide the basics. Here’s what you need to know about the Galaxy Note 5 specs right now.

Thus far, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 rumors have failed to establish the exact amount of internal storage space on board the new flagship. They have, however, pointed to a potential limitation of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5's design.

Samsung's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge feature premium designs but those designs came at the cost of a removable battery and microSD card slot. The Galaxy Note 5 will reportedly come with a Galaxy S6-like design and that spells doom for expandable storage.

The device will reportedly shun a microSD card slot for the first time in its history. If this sticks, it means that we'll probably see Samsung release multiple storage sizes at different price points, similar to what it did with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.  

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge both feature 32GB, 64GB and 128GB options.

5 Xbox One Things We Hope to See at GamesCom 2015

GottaBeMobile - Sat, 08/01/2015 - 13:00

5 Xbox One Things We Hope to See at GamesCom 2015 is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.

For hardcore Microsoft fans, Gamescom 2015 is the last major event of the year. The last few months were stuffed with Xbox-related news from the company. This week Windows 10 officially arrived for all, bringing with it a dedicated Xbox One app and Xbox Live experience free of charge to PC gamers. In June Microsoft showed off new games like Gears of War 4 and new-comer ReCore. What secrets Microsoft’s Gamescom 2015 press conference will reveal is a hot topic of discussion. It’s the last major event in western gaming before the busy holiday season.

Despite showing a lot this year, there remains tons of untapped potential for Microsoft’s August 4th media briefing at the show. At E3 Microsoft showed off its exclusives for this year, mainly Rise of the Tomb Raider, Halo 5, Forza 6, Fable Legends and Gigantic. For Gamescom 2015, the focus is on the next wave of must-have Xbox One games coming in 2016. Some even think that Microsoft will share more information about its looming Windows 10 on Xbox One update.

Crackdown

Revealed back in 2014, Crackdown is one of the Xbox One’s hotly anticipated games. Unlike the majority of games for the Xbox One, Microsoft doesn’t have to worry about fighting Sony’s PS4 for users with this game. It’s one of the company’s exclusive franchises, developed and maintained inside the company just for Xbox One users.

Read: Crackdown, Scalebound Bombshell Drops Ahead of E3 2015

What the company will show at Gamescom 2015 related to Crackdown is unclear, but there are some conclusions based on a single trailer we’ve already seen. In that first Crackdown trailer we saw a team of agents coordinate explosions and crashes to take down an enemies’ hangout, hinting at a robust co-op experience. We also saw a building practically crumble before our eyes after being hit with a tanker, hinting at maps were destroying Pacific City’s buildings is just as important as taking down opponents.

More Windows Exclusives

Microsoft is on something of a tear rebuilding its Xbox Live infrastructure and services for a new generation of PC gamers. The general idea seems to be that Microsoft can improve its operating system’s fortunes if it improves on the things people use it for. This includes PC gaming.

We already know that Fable Legends, Gigantic and Gears of War Ultimate Edition are coming for PCs running Windows 10. Microsoft could have more Windows 10 games to reveal at Gamescom 2015 or even a better breakdown of when we’ll see each of these games arrive. Currently, Microsoft has revealed the PC release date for any of these games.

Scalebound

If it wasn’t coming from Bayonetta developer Platinum Games, it’s unclear how excited anyone would be about Scalebound. That’s in no way a diss of the title or the studio. We just don’t know what the game actually is or what genre it fits into. Microsoft has confirmed that Scalebound will be one of the Xbox One games it shows off at Gamescom 2015.

Quantum Break

Earlier this year Quantum Break became one of the first games in Microsoft’s Xbox One line-up to get a delay. To be clear, we’re not talking about a delay of a week or two either. Originally, Quantum Break was set for a fall 2015 release alongside Rise of the Tomb Raider, Forza 6 and Halo 5: Guardians.

Read: Quantum Break Release Date Delayed Into 2016

Produced by Remedy Entertainment, Quantum Break is a science-fiction, genre bending adventure. Thanks to experiments in a large northeastern town, players have the ability to manipulate time in Quantum Break as a combat mechanic. Remedy has promised a detailed, high-production episodic show spliced into Quantum Break too.

Microsoft now says that it’ll release Quantum Break sometime early next year. This game is already confirmed for Gamescom 2015 too.

Windows 10 on Xbox One

Finally, there’s the new Xbox experience built on the Windows 10 operating system. At E3 2015 Microsoft finally revealed that it was planning a significant overhaul of the Xbox One’s software to make everything more intuitive and fluid. We haven’t seen or heard much about the upgrade since, even though Microsoft says it plans to release the update sometime in 2015.

Read: Windows 10 on Xbox One Release Details Coming Soon

At the very least Microsoft has to show us more of the Xbox One running Windows 10. The company has yet to detail how apps downloaded from the Windows Store will work on the console. We haven’t seen if any of the console’s entertainment features have gotten upgrades either.

Microsoft’s GamesCom 2015 Media Briefing Starts at 10AM Eastern Standard Time on August 4th. Both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 will have livestreams available for users who want to watch the festivities for themselves. Microsoft will also host daily, 60-minute long briefings on each days news during the event.

5 Things You’ll Hate About the iPhone 5

GottaBeMobile - Fri, 07/31/2015 - 20:30

5 Things You’ll Hate About the iPhone 5 is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

Apple no longer sells the iPhone 5 but thanks to numerous retailers and resellers, the iPhone 5 is still an option for those looking to buy an iPhone on a budget. Those who are thinking about buying the iPhone 5 will want to keep these frustrating things in mind before buying it.

In the fall of 2012, Apple took the stage and announced a brand new iPhone called iPhone 5. The device was the first iPhone to feature LTE data speeds, the first iPhone to feature a 4-inch Retina display, and the first to offer the Lightning dock standard. The iPhone 5 also arrived with a redesign and numerous other bells and whistles.

We, like many others, bought the iPhone 5 when it first came out. Back then, it was one of the best phones on the market. That’s no longer the case.

In the years since its release we’ve seen Apple release the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. The company is also expected to debut two new iPhones in September dubbed iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. We recommend most of those over the iPhone 5 (the exception being the iPhone 5c).

We’ve been using the iPhone 5, extensively we might add, for close to three years now. It’s holding up pretty well for a three year old phone but there are some things that have started to bother us as it gets older. And it’s these things that we want to warn you about.

After three years with the iPhone 5, here are a few things that we’ll think you’ll hate about it.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } No Touch ID1 / 5

One of the big changes that came with the iPhone 5s was the Touch ID fingerprint sensor that's embedded inside the home button. If you've never used Touch ID on an iPhone then you don't know how useful, and convenient it is. 

With Touch ID, all you have to do is push your finger down on the home button and you're in. It eliminates the need for a passcode or a swipe to access the home screen. Think about how many times you access your home screen on a daily basis and you'll understand why this feature is so important. 

You can probably see where we're going with this. The iPhone 5's home button doesn't have a fingerprint sensor. You're stuck with Apple's primative ways of opening up the phone. Now that we've used Touch ID for a few years, it's a feature that we simply can't live without. Once you try it, you'll probably be in the same boat.

OnePlus 2 Release: What You Need to Know

GottaBeMobile - Fri, 07/31/2015 - 19:55

OnePlus 2 Release: What You Need to Know is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

Earlier this week the relatively new smartphone manufacturer OnePlus launched its second smartphone, the OnePlus 2, and it appears ready to take on the best of the Android competition. The phone looks promising and already has over 1 million buyers who’ve signed up for an invite to purchase it one release day. With the release near, here’s everything buyers need to know.

The company isn’t a household name but they hope to be after the release of this new phone. Aiming to offer most of the same specs and features of high-end devices like the Galaxy S6, yet for nearly half the cost. The 5.5-inch OnePlus 2 will retail for just $329.

Read: OnePlus 2: What We Know So Far

After tons of rumors, small leaks, and teasers by OnePlus themselves, the OnePlus 2 was revealed on July 27th. The smartphone brings top-tier specs and some fancy customization and unique textures on the back, along with much more all for a low price. Today they confirmed some impressive pre-order numbers, and hopefully they’ll have enough inventory to fill buyers needs.

This year the OnePlus 2 has a beautiful 5.5-inch 1080p HD screen, tons of customizable replacement backs to change the look and feel, a 13 megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and laser auto-focus like the G4, a fingerprint scanner similar to the Galaxy S6, a big battery for more than all-day battery life, and more that we’ll get into below.

Using an invite system similar to what the company did last year, buyers will be able to start buying the phone in less than two weeks. However, last year there wasn’t nearly enough stock to go around, and they were out of inventory for months at a time. This year they promised a new and improved invite system, and here’s all the OnePlus 2 details for potential buyers.

.gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } #gbmslideshow { border-width: 0px; } OnePlus 2 Release Date1 / 5

As we mentioned above the original OnePlus One struggled when it came to a release date, but that won't be the case this year. This new OnePlus 2 will be released on August 11th, along with a much improved invite system, which can be found at the OnePlus.net site. Then buyers can give invites to friends to buy as well. 

The company promises a very smooth release date, rather than a 4-5 month wait like last year. It remains to be seen how well the company will handle the release, but they're promising a lot and hopefully can deliver.

Amazing Star Wars Battlefront Mode Revealed

GottaBeMobile - Fri, 07/31/2015 - 19:50

Amazing Star Wars Battlefront Mode Revealed is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.

Ahead of the Star Wars Battlefront release date on November 17th, video game developer Dice and video game publisher Electronic Arts have a surprise new mode to show off. Called Blast, the newly revealed experience for Star Wars Battlefront will act as another amazing reason for gamers to pick up the title when it arrives on store shelves.

Electronic Arts revealed Blast for Star Wars Battlefront this week in a post on the game’s dedicated news blog. As described in that blog post, Blast is the game’s dedicated “Team Deathmatch mode.”

In total, Blast for Star Wars Battlefront breaks twenty players into teams of 10. Each of the two teams takes on the role of either the Rebel Alliance or the Imperial Army. For ten minutes users get to blast each other to death. At the end of that ten minutes the game ends and whichever team has the most kills wins. Blast matches can last less than ten minutes if a single team hits 100 kills before the time expires.

Read: Sneaky New Star Wars Battlefront Leaks Tell All

Announced shortly before the Electronic Entertainment Expo this year, Star Wars Battlefront acts as the ultimate shooter sandbox. Players use the Star Wars franchise’s iconic weapons, gear and vehicles to battle each other for supremacy. Users don’t get to do battle in outer space, but dozens of maps from the movie series are included. For example, Hoth and Endor are playable areas in the game.

To be good at Blast players will need to load their character up with the right gear for the particular battle they’re going to face. There seems to be a need to balance some hardcore strategy with all-inclusive good fun. Getting that balance right is very important. Plenty of PS4 and Xbox One owners are going to rush out and pick up Star Wars Battlefront because of its subject. To keep users interested there need to be some more nuanced, detailed oriented mechanics so there’s a reason to come back long after the awe of playing in the Star Wars universe has worn off.

Blast won’t feature any of the series’ recognizable heroes or villains. It also won’t include playable vehicles of any kind.

To keep things interesting, Blast will take players to different locations they may not have had access to in other games. Some Blast battles will take place inside bases others will drop both teams in iconic locations like Tatooine. Star Wars Battlefront attracted a lot of attention for its huge maps. Using the power of current-generation consoles, Dice was able to build huge landscapes that feel ripped right out of the movies and television shows. For large battles these maps do great, but for Blast the video game developer decided it’d be a better idea to keep battles to more confined spaces. “To keep the action dense in this close-quarters mode, the Blast maps are not as vast as in other game modes,” Dice’s Dennis Brannball says.” When the same maps are used, there are lighting differences.

Star Wars Battlefront is expected to be one of this year’s must-have video games, and unfortunately users will need a next-generation console or a robust computer to play it on. Windows PC users will be able to play the game through EA’s own Origin video game service. Star Wars Battlefront is coming to the Xbox One and PS4 too. Its just Xbox 360 and PS3 users getting left out of the festivities.

Star Wars Battlefront is available for pre-order from GameStop now for $60. As a bonus Electronic Arts is gifting those that pre-order early access to its Battle of Jakku downloadable content. A $69.99 version of the game includes other extras.
