Not too long ago, I concluded that the iPhone 6 was the “perfect iPhone” because it had just about everything an iPhone user ever wanted from having an upgraded screen, improved camera, OS enhancements, etc which made something already great, better. Factor in the larger screen without the sacrifice of one handed use and you have a winner. But what if you wanted more? What if a 4.7-inch display just wasn’t enough for you? And what if you wanted to have the piece of mind of Optical Image Stabilization on your smartphone camera even though the iPhone 6 does a great job at taking photos already? Well, for a $100 more and the sacrifice of some of your pocket’s real estate, this is where the iPhone 6 Plus comes in.
Still the Best Smartwatch
The Smartwatch so far has been pretty much a niche market and what’s been available currently has been more or less a letdown. Complaints usually have to do with design, performance, battery life and practicality which just about all of them suffer from. Consumers and critics have been let down by Android Wear watches and Samsung Gear watches have been laughed it.
With Apple promising something revolutionary in early 2015 with their Watch, the Pebble has continued to sell since 2013. Now with a recent price reduction of the original watch down to $99, and the Steel to $199 on top of several software upgrades since the beginning, how does it compete today and how far will it go as OEMs continue to gear up on smart watches?
