Apple iPhone 7

Apple has set an event for the 7th of September, in the date of the event lies the clue of the launch of the Apple iPhone 7. Each year like clockwork Apple releases a revision to their flagship smartphone, and till last year their only smartphone line. The iPhone 7 is the next incremental upgrade which usually comes after Apple has already launched a “s” version of the iPhone, in this case the iPhone 6s was launched last year.
Launch Just as mentioned above, one thing we know for sure is that Apple will launch the iPhone 7 on 7th September 2016. The iPhone 7 will then possibly go up for sale a week later. Pre orders should begin with a few hours from launch.

Apple will launch the iPhone 7 in a design which is quite similar to that of the iPhone 6 and 6s, however there are major differences in the way that the back looks and minor differences in some aesthetics. The overall shape will remain the same the antenna lines will …

Motorola Moto E3 (3rd gen)

Lenovo is launching today the third generation Moto E, bringing a larger screen and other improved specs to the well-known budget series. The most visible improvement over the Moto E (2015), which was released in February last year, is the display, which is now 5-inch (compared to 4.5-inch last year) and HD (compared to 540 x 960). Lenovo was keen to mention that the Moto E3 features a “built-in smudge-resistant screen protector,” though it’s not clear for now what that actually means. The processor is an unspecified quad-core model and the battery has been bumped up to 2,800-mAh, from close to 2,400 on the E3’s predecessor. Lenovo also improved the camera on the Moto E3, which is now 8MP in resolution and features autofocus. You can expand the built-in storage space (also unspecified) with a microSD card. The Moto E3 is treated with a nano-coating that repels water, which allows Lenovo to advertise it as “splashproof.” We wouldn’t recommend testing the eff…
