Galaxy S8 might get the Edge’s double dose of curves
Two phones: Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus?
Galaxy S8s could launch March 29
Big, “bezel-less” displays
The Galaxy S8’s face could be 85 percent or 90 percent screen, according to various reports like this one. That isn’t just conjecture.
5.8- and 6.2-inch screens
One rumor says that Samsung will be able to fit a 5.8-inch display into the S8 and a 6.2-inch screen on the S8 Edge/Plus. Both screen sizes are larger than the Note 7’s 5.7-inch screen real estate, but the S8 is expected to have a smaller footprint than both the Note 7 and S8 Edge/Plus.
It could have an AI assistant named Bixby
Filing a patent for a digital assistant named Bixby is a pretty good indicator that the Galaxy S8 will have the rumored Bixby assistant and maybe a female voice variant named Kestra. (Samsung bought AI startup Viv late last year.) Riding on the back of Samsung apparently trademarking the name Bixby Vision is the latest rumor that points to AI use in the camera.
Bixby is expected to:
Control native apps.
Identify object and text through the camera app.
Feature its own launch button (on the phone’s right side).
Launch in seven or eight languages (that’s more than Google Assistant).
We’re expecting a lot of things from the LG G6, but one thing it might not be is water-resistant, as new renders show it in a waterproof case – something which wouldn’t be necessary if the phone itself was waterproof.
But the absence of any sort of waterproofing on the LG G6 would come as a surprise, as although the LG G5 and other handsets in the range don’t play nice with liquids, an official teaser for a phone believed to be the G6 has mentioned waterproofing.
The renders, posted by Ghostek and spotted by BGR, don’t give a huge amount else away, but the design of the G6 appears to be similar to that of the LG G5, complete with a metal build, a fingerprint scanner on the back and a dual-lens camera. Though this time the camera sits flush with the rear of the phone, whereas on the G5 it sticks out slightly.

No app drawer
Battery could be better
If the battery is truly the main issue that caused the Note 7 problems, Samsung fans should be happy to hear that the Korean firm is planning to use batteries made by some of its competitors for the Galaxy Note 8. However, if the IDC researcher is also correct and the company didn’t leave enough space for the battery, then Samsung should be able to easily remedy this in the Note 8.
Aside from fixing the problems encountered in the Note 7, another suggestion that has been floated for the Galaxy Note 8 is a foldable display, but I would place this in the doubtful pile. Smartphones with foldable displays are probably coming sooner than we think, given that Apple, Samsung and now Microsoft have all received patents for the technology, among others. It would be surprising if the tech were ready in time for the Note 8, but if there is any phone on the market that could really use a foldable display in a useful way and not offer it simply as a gimmick, it’s the Note line.
Samsung has also been reported to be working on a new digital assistant called Bixby, although this is expected to debut in the Galaxy S8 earlier this year. The Galaxy Note 8 could also feature a 4K display for the first time, bringing it in line with phones made by less popular competitors, and an increase in RAM to 6GB. The amount of internal storage could double, and hopefully the iris scanner that debuted in the Note 7 will make a reappearance, but this time in a safe phone. IP68 water resistance is also expected, as are updates to the S Pen and camera.
The scratching on the Jet Black finish is most visible at certain angles to the light. At other angles and away from bright lighting, the phones still look great. In fact, in ideal lighting and at the right angle, they look like a real-world version of the black hole in Interstellar. Jet Black truly is a gorgeous finish… now, if only Apple can find a way to make it more durable.

Following up on repeated leaks that the ‘iPhone 8’ (as it is being dubbed) will feature an “edgeless display”, the Korea Herald has a major exclusive which delivers both good and bad news:
“The OLED version of the new iPhone will all be curved as Apple ordered all plastic OLED – not glass – from Samsung Display. Samsung is capable of supplying a little less than 100 million units of curved OLED displays to Apple,” the paper said citing a source familiar with the matter.
1. CRACKED SCREEN
Jokes aside, the Gorilla Glass Screen on your iPhone needs significantly less impact than a raging silverback to crack it. A sharp knock at an unfortunate angle will see your lovely clear screen turned into a practically unusable spider’s web of cracks. To protect your phone, you need at least a tempered glass screen protector – these come in thicknesses of anywhere from 0.3 to 0.5mm. Not only will it save you from playing your mobile games through the glassy crevices of a broken screen, glass protectors help improve touch sensitivity and colour.

2. FAULTY BATTERY
Here’s how to tell if your iPhone has a battery problem:
1. Phone suddenly turns off even though battery indicator shows 20% power remaining.
2. Battery depletes fast enough for you to start noticing and feels hot during charging.
3. Phone is already 1.5 to 2 years old and has completed a full charge cycle count of 300 to 500.
Note: Apple is offering a free battery replacement program for iPhone 6S’s which are affected by unexpected shutdown issues.
Some great tips for keeping your phone battery healthy include keeping your phone away from heat sources like direct sun exposure, refraining from draining your phone’s battery before you charge it, and keeping a charge in your phone even if you put it away for storage – or else the battery might completely forget how to hold a charge when you do dust off that old device eventually.
If you are unsure of whether your battery is spoilt, you can also download this program to check the cycle count of your iPhone. If it really does need replacing and you’re feeling brave, you could always check out this video guiding you through how to replace your iPhone 6 battery in just 4 minutes. However, we think you might be better off leaving it the experts.
Kai from Mobile Phone Repair advised our team that once your iPhone starts to die even when it still shows 20% battery life left, it’s highly recommended that it be changed or the power unit of the motherboard can get damaged which will leave you with even more expensive repairs. If the unthinkable does happens and your battery is on its last legs, you might want to consider giving Kai a call for an iPhone battery replacement at their main Chinatown outlet.
3. iPhone doesn’t charge when connected
If you have to keep twisting that iPhone cable to get to the sweet spot to get your phone charging, you might need to clean up the port.
Shine a light inside and see if there is anything blocking the metal receptors from the cable head. If it is clean, you might have a bigger problem than grime.
1. If there is an hard object inside like eraser shavings, just use a toothpick and gently pry it out without damaging the metal connectors inside the phone
2. Dust, dirt and grime tend to get stuck inside the charging port. All you need for a clean-up are a pair of tweezers, cotton wool and a little lighter fluid. Just make sure your device is off during this process and don’t stick the tweezers too far into the port.
3. If all else fails, get the professionals to replace the charging port. Yes, it’s possible.
