As the screen gets bigger, it is tougher to stretch your fingers to reach the top corners especially where the on-screen back button is located. However they tried to make it usable in a single hand with its reachability mode. This is triggered by double tapping on the home button to shrink the current display. For Android, navigation is less painful on a large screen thanks to the standard back and recent apps buttons.
If you’re wishing for something similar on your iPhone, it is now possible and all you’ll need is just a screen protector.
Think of a flagship smart phone, and both Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 should pop up on your consideration list right now. The iPhone 6 despite its premium price tag is still commanding a huge chunk of the smart phone market share. In the last quarter of 2014, the Cupertino company had sold more iPhones than Samsung’s extensive smart phone line up.
Fast forward to Q2 2015, the latest flagship from Samsung has up the ante with better hardware and more attention to build quality and design than it did before. So if you’re in the market to get a high-end smart phone, which would you take? We outline the differences between the two and hopefully you can get a better idea of what to get.
Last week, we posted a series of pictures taken using the Galaxy S6 edge, the iPhone 6, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S5 and the Xperia Z3. Then we asked you to choose which of the phones took the best pictures, to make it fair (and interesting), we didn’t tell you which picture was taken using which device.
You’ve diligently ranked the pictures and we’ve tabulated the results, and here they are.

A new iOS 8.3 update is now available for supported iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. Apart from the usual bug fixes and performance improvements, the latest update also delivers a new emoji keyboard with over 300 new characters. If you are seeing some weird blocky alien emojis from your friends, it is because they are using the new emojis that are visible to those on iOS 8.3 or OS X 10.10.3.
Depending on what device you have, it is about 280MB-375MB to download and we recommend you to do so using WiFi. If you haven’t gotten any notifications yet, you can check under Settings > General > Software Update.
UPDATE: We have a winning camera as chosen by you. Read all about it here.
Camera performance in a smartphone is a HUGE deal. It’s such a big deal that many place their purchasing decision predominantly on how well a smartphone takes pictures. So how good are the cameras in among the best smartphones you can get right now?
That’s where you come in.
We have here for you, a selection of pictures taken using five of the best smartphones on the planet: Galaxy S6 Edge, iPhone 6, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S5 and the Xperia Z3.

Now the iPhone 6 is priced from RM2,702 for 16GB, which is RM303 more since its launch in Malaysia last last year. Meanwhile the phablet sized iPhone 6 Plus now costs more than RM3,000 at RM3,126. This is an increase of RM377. The same 6% increase also applies on their iPads in Malaysia but it isn’t so much as it left unchanged during the price revision that happened a few weeks ago.

If you’re planning to buy an iPhone 6 in Malaysia, most likely you’ve been disappointed by the recent price increase. U Mobile, the 4th telco to offer the iPhone 6 on contract wants you to know that all is not doom and gloom.
With its ongoing registration of interest, U Mobile has revealed more details of its offering which are one of a kind in Malaysia. For starters, they would be offering the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at previous lower prices, while stocks last.
The registration exercise will start from today until 16th of March, which means they could be offering it as early as next Tuesday (17th March). It is also mentioned that U Mobile will be giving the lowest cost of ownership, freedom of postpaid contract, as well as a first of its kind offering for prepaid users. U Mobile might be 4 months behind its big 3 rivals, but it will be interesting to see how they could do things differently in terms of value and contract flexibility

If you want to get an iPhone on contract in Malaysia, you are usually limited to the big 3 telcos (Celcom, DiGi & Maxis). Not anymore as U Mobile has teased that they would be offering the device soon. Pre-registration for the iPhones will start on next Monday, 9th March.
U Mobile hasn’t revealed their bundling details yet, and they could either create a iPhone specific plans or bundle them together with their current #GetClever plans. Like previous bundling offers, we expect U Mobile to offer more enticing offers such as zero advance payment waivers and additional protection add-ons for its higher postpaid plan offering. The iPhone 6 retails outright from RM2,399 while its larger iPhone 6 Plus is priced from RM2,749. If you’re interested, you can register yourself with them next week.
