Low battery is the bane of an avid smartphone user’s life. We all have had to face it, be it at class or somewhere out hiking, and in all honesty, running out of power midway in your day is quite frustrating. One of the problems that I have continued to notice is that with each passing year, phones are becoming thinner, essential features are being thrown away (RIP headphone jack), and that batteries are becoming smaller in capacity.
We don’t do much Apple news here, but it’s no secret that the iPhone 8 is gearing up to be one of the most popular phones of 2017. This isn’t merely because it’s another iPhone, either. What sets the 10th generation Apple device apart from its predecessors is its inclusion of modern hardware.
Imagine a world where you can use your phone to do phone things: texting, using apps, and yes, even the occasional phone call—but without paying $30+ a month to your corporation of choice.
To those willing to accept a few minor drawbacks, this world can be a reality.
So you’re planning on buying “that new Galaxy phone?”
Which one are you getting?
“The S8 Plus, obviously.”
Yeah. Because you’ve always preferred the bigger phone. You love smartphones and don’t want to hold back on spending all you can to get the best possible. You don’t want to get the smaller, compromising version just to save up a few bucks. You’ve always liked the bigger, 5.5-inch screens and you know from experience that your hand can handle using a phone that big.
It’s no secret that the Galaxy S8 is one of the most popular and capable phones ever released to the masses. The amount of work Samsung put into making this phone one of the highest quality devices to hit the market is clearly evident. But there’s really just one obstacle keeping me from buying the new Samsung Galaxy S8, and that obstacle is… Samsung.
A few years ago, only the most high-end computers and only a handful of smartphones utilized USB Type-C. But in the year of 2017, virtually every laptop and flagship smartphone emerging from the market comes equipped with these high-speed ports for quick charging and data transfer. To be able to come home and use a single cable for charging your phone and your laptop is such as satisfying feeling.
