The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is one of the best smartphones that was announced this year and while it does not offer too much of an upgrade where specs are concerned, it does offer a new way to use your device due to its curved screen. Samsung was hoping that it would help make up for the disappointing sales of the Galaxy S5, which was released last year, and help the company recover lost revenue. Unfortunately though, it appears that won’t be the case. Endgadet reported today that Samsung is having some difficulty with being able to keep up with demand for the Galaxy S6 Edge, as they do not have enough curved screens to meet consumers. Samsung is promising to find a solution to this problem which they will hopefully find, otherwise, they may see another slow year and lost profits. It is worth noting however that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will not a shortage of supplies, at least not at the moment due to the fact that it uses a normal flat screen.

Galaxy Note 5 might have UHD display

Both Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge features an impressive screen but it seems that Samsung is planning to notch up their game a little bit with the upcoming Galaxy Note 5. PhoneArena is reporting that the upcoming successor of the Note series will feature a UHD display. It means that its display will have a whooping resolution of 2160 x 3840 pixels.

Galaxy Note 5 is reported to have a 5.89-inch screen, which means it will have a 748 ppi. However, nothing is set on stone about it and it seems like a really advanced technology for a smartphone. Also there is the battery life and the price tag to keep in mind as well. If Samsung decides to offer it, it will definitely cost more and also they will have to be careful with the battery as well, because battery life is like a backbone of a smartphone’s success.

We hope to learn more about the Galaxy Note 5 in future. Of course a UHD display would be amazing to look at, but is it really a necessity? Let us know in the comment box below.

Android 5.1 provides many fixes to 5.0, including a slight memory leak fix, more animations, better volume controls, better quick settings and support for HD voice calling.

Microsoft Lumia 640 camera sample gallery


The new Microsoft Lumia 640 comes with a respectable sounding 8MP camera on the back. It’s a step up in resolution from its predecessor, the Lumia 630, and despite no Pureview or Zeiss lens, it does have the benefit of the latest Lumia Camera 5 software.

We’re in the process of putting together a full review, but since the camera is a popular point of conversation, we’ve put together a very quick sample gallery for everyone to have a look at.

If you’ve ever gone over the data allowance on your iPhone, you aren’t alone.

It’s a problem a lot of smartphone owners run into. From streaming music to watching YouTube videos, we all love to consume data. Unfortunately with capped data plans being the norm nowadays, it’s easy to get hit with overage charges. That’s exactly the problem an iMore reader is having:

Every once in a while I find myself going over what I’m allowed on my iPhone data plan. Is there an easier way to stay on top of this other than checking my carrier’s app or getting text updates?

Short answer: Yes, absolutely!

How to stay on top of your iPhone data usage with DataMan

There are many apps in the App Store that let you monitor your cellular data usage, but my favorite suite of apps is DataMan. There are two consumer versions to choose from, DataMan Pro and DataMan Next. The Pro version has a few more features than the Next version. You can view a complete breakdown of the differences on the DataMan website.

Once you’ve installed either DataMan Pro or DataMan Next, make sure you activate the Today view widgets in Notification Center. This way you can quickly swipe down from virtually anywhere and see your current data usage. DataMan Pro offers an advanced feature called AppWatch that can tell you what apps are the most data hungry. If you’re experiencing high data usage and you aren’t exactly sure what’s causing it, I highly recommend using AppWatch to weed out the problem app.

An important note about family plans

If you’re on a family plan, DataMan and apps similar to it can only track the specific device you’re using. I suggest solving this problem by dividing up your data plan into equal parts. Whatever your portion is, that is what you should tell DataMan your monthly allowance is, not the entire data amount for the whole family.

I also recommend making sure you check your data usage from your actual carrier every now and again if you’re on a family plan. This way you have a good idea of what everyone else is using too, so you can prepare appropriately for an overage before it actually happens.
