Bentgate- Is iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are flexible?

A few days earlier, Apple launched it’s the most awaited model of the year i.e. IPhone 6 and 6 plus. Approx. 10 million users have made the advance bookings to buy this smartphone. But every time Apple launches its new iPhone there are few issues that turns out to be overblown greatly. Be it an Antennagate with iPhone 4, the purple lens flare with iPhone 5, or the fingerprint duplication with the iPhone 5s, there’s always something with it. Now it’s with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, there is one new catastrophe that has already adopted its name known as Bentgate.

iphone 6 bentgate

This never ending catastrophe is leading to the outcome that the iPhone 6 is made of rigid but unreliable thin metal shell that can be deformed permanently if too much pressure or force is applied to it.

If enough power is applied to an inch deep solid steel rod, then it will stoop with the force applied to it. Same is the case with the far less than quarter thick iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This smartphone is built of aluminum metal and as aluminum being fairly a soft metal that can distort easily.

The issues that people highlighting is the #bentgate i.e. when people are pulling out their iPhone 6 or 6 plus out of the pocket, they experience a slight curve to it. The screen size of the iPhone 6 is 5.44” whereas 6 plus is 6.22”. This means there is a heap of space from where the iPhone can turn. But the bend is experienced at the place where the iPhone is quite weak.  If the iPhone is kept sideways in your pocket, it will be pushing up against your leg which contains a hard bone approx. 2” thick. If the pants are too tight around your leg or you just sit on your iPhone when it’s in your back pocket of your jean then the phone can bend easily as the phone is of thin metal, it struggles with the force leading to the failure resulting in bending of the iPhone.

Most of the bends that we have noticed, occurred at the point, where the iPhone is weakest- that is the cutouts for the volume buttons and SIM card slot. The thicker frame around the iPhone has a cutout at the volume buttons and at the SIM card slot which reduces the rigidity of the phone at that place.

It’s quite clear that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are facing the bendable issue, but what we don’t know is that it’s the design flaw or it’s the cheap quality or it’s just the issue being blown out by the new iPhone owners. Remember, there are now 10 million owners of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, who is spending a significant portion of their busy life in admiring and fondling their shiny new slice of Apple magic. All it takes is one iPhone 6 owner report a slight unplanned curvature, and suddenly millions of other owners are looking for the same problem.

So here are few ways to deal with this:

•             Don’t keep your iPhone in the back pocket

•             Ensure that you always keep your iPhone straight in your bag or upright in your front pocket.

•             Keep the iPhone in a shirt or coat pocket, or in your purse.

Yes, we know that it will not work for everybody. And we know that you won’t be happy with investing, hundreds of dollars in exchanging an iPhone 6.

4K Blu-Ray Discs lining up in 2015 market to compete with Streaming Media

The people keen on watching videos are desperately waiting for the launch of 4K Blu-ray players that will offer high quality videos – better resolution, dynamic range and color.

The complete world is shifting to the streaming video that is delivered over the internet due to its high quality and time saving benefits. The Blu-ray player Association has almost done work with the latest version of optical disc technology that can handle high-resolution 4K imagery, And this technology will be licensed in the summer or spring of 2015.and the former 4K Blu-ray players will make its place in the market by the vacation -shopping period of the upcoming year.

Blu-ray discs can provide the best possible picture quality by using physical media instead of relying on frail internet connections. 4k Blu-ray is not about the 4times the number of pixels prevailing 1080p video, it’s much more than that. The new specification will improve the color gamut dramatically and will offer a higher dynamic range of dramatic colors. It will be able to show 4K video at 60 frames per minute. The people with Blu-rays players can find despites with streaming and picture quality due to internet speed.

With services from Netflix, Google, Hulu, Amazon and many others, people can watch the video they want immediately rather than leaving the house. And the subscription services provide access to a library of products so people can watch as much as they want — and try new TV shows or films without holding to determine whether it’s worth the pre-show price tag.

Streaming media are getting more convenient with players from Roku, Google, and Amazon. As of the second quarter of 2014, 17 % of Internet-connected households have streaming-media players. In 2014, 72 million families i.e. Approx. 62% bought a Blu – ray player in the US. Most people are crazy about to the buy the latest upgraded technology and people move to new technology slowly, after its launching. Format changes can be a frequent pain for the customers, but with streaming media customers need not to care much about the formats.

The fresh formats are working on the existing Blu-ray discs with a capacity of 50GB, but higher capacities of Blu-ray discs are on the way. It stores data in a different manner, which is switching its way from the Advanced Video coding i.e. Compression technology to the newer High Efficiency Video Coding successor. HEVC take more time to encode the videos, but wrap them compactly.

The 4K Blu-ray drive players will be able to store data from discs at the speed of 50-60 megabits per second, and may be probably up to 100Mbps. “That’s about twice the current Blu-ray. This means it will lead to twice data-transfer rates and double compression efficiency”. The expected capacity will probably be of the 66GB and 100GB versions. The UHD content may include higher frame rates and greater color gamut, might be needing some more disc space. We require the extended Blu-ray format to be as rich as possible and be educated to manage future demand of film makers and content suppliers. The goal will be to always have one movie on one disc.”

For the each frame of 4K Blu-ray video, the association is expecting a significant image-quality improvements. Many experts are doubtful that people viewing ordinary TV will be able to distinguish the difference between today’s 1080p HD video and 4K video. The 4K format of the Blu-ray players increases the bit depth of the each pixel from 8 to 10,meaning that a greater range can be recorded for a video.

The new upcoming movies are coming with the 4K Blu-ray print as these prints are cheaper and more comfortable to play on latest Blu-Ray printers. The users who’ve watched movie on VHS, DVD, and Blu-ray formats aren’t going to buy it in Blu-ray 4K version, so no need to re format the video in latest format.

The Blu-ray Disc Association counts big studios as board members, including Fox, Warner, Disney, Warner, and Sony — which produces both Blu-ray players and runs its Sony Entertainment studio. Also, members of the association are Lions gate, Universal, and Paramount.

Google’s Android L shows incredible improvements in battery life.

We have found that battery life is one of the crucial factor that comes in user’s mind when buying a smartphone. The major cell phone manufacture’s has been working on different techniques to improve the battery life and indeed stand up time of smartphones. Microsoft spent a great deal of time proving that Windows 8 enabled smartphones have many new features designed to save power and boost run time, but company still lags Apple by a handsome amount illustrated through some test’ . The company Google approach the same in different manner. Google’s Project Volta, which aims to boost Android battery run time, is giving incredible results. Google has smartly made improving battery life a key goal of its upcoming Android L release. All the test are taken by Arsh technica.

Last month Google publicized that it has been working on Project Volta that will ultimate battery experience to users. Google also made an enhanced battery tracker known as “Battery Historian” .This tool that will follow the power loss via tracking application’s and will let the user’s to know which applications are consuming more power. Project Volta also has the new feature that gives developers the option to schedule their apps’ tasks to only run when a phone is charging, that will definitely save battery’s power without forcing the user to dim their displays or reduce their mobile’s performance.

Ars Technica decided to put Android L to the test and revealed these results. Mainly they found that the same phone with Android L had 36% more battery life or about two hours of extra run time as compared to other version’s of Android like 4.4 KitKat.

Android L

What makes this result particularly striking is that Ars disabled the Android L“battery saver” feature that extremely cuts down on a phone’s power consumption by lowering its screen brightness and killing off background data once the battery hits 15%. This means that Android L is going to reduce your phone’s battery consumption significantly without forcing you to put up with a subpar experience on your device.

This is just an initial review of Android L’s battery life. A 36% improvement in battery life from project Volta in Android L will positively makes a meaningful difference across other Android version’s definitely an attractive figure. The current release is a “developer preview,” and it will surely makes any changes before the time the final version of L comes out, even the things could go better. Google will definitely revolutionize power back in smartphones and will provide enhanced battery life to users.

Now, Remotely charge your Mobile Phone

Scientist have succeeded in creating a gadget that can charge about 40 cell phones at the similar time, considering the fact, even if the power source is 5 meters away.

refurbished mobile phones

April 16, 2014 at the KAIST grounds, Professor Chun T. Edge and his team showcased an unbelievable variation in the separation that electric force can travel remotely. This is the great improvement which specifies that in the distance that electric power can travel wirelessly. This group is working in Nuclear and Quantum Engineering department at KAIST Daejeon, Republic of Korea.

Professor and his team developed the “Dipole Coil Resonant System (DCRS)” for an enlarged range of inductive force transferal, up to 5 meters of range between transmitter and recipient curls.

Since MIT’s (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) demonstration of the Coupled Magnetic Resonance System (CMRS) in 2007, which employed a magnetic field to exchange energy for a space of 2.1 meters, the expansion of long-distance remote power exchange has pulled in much attention for further research.

Flexible and slim with a dimension of 3 m long, 10 cm in breadth, and 20 cm in height, DCRS is suggestively more compact than CMRS. The structure has a low Q factor of 100, signifying 20 times stronger against atmospheric changes, and works well at a low frequency of 100 kHz.

The group piloted several experiments and achieved guaranteeing effects: for illustration, under the operation of 20 kHz, the extreme output power was 1,403 W at a 3-meter distance, 471 W at 4-meter, and 209 W at 5-meter. For 100 W of electric energy transfer, the whole system power efficiency was 36.9 per cent at 3 meters, 18.7 per cent at 4 meters, and 9.2 per cent at 5 meters.
