Study claims that Galaxy phone users on Twitter are happier than iPhone users

Research has been conducted by the firm LikeFolio. The firm compared the number of positives said about Galaxy smartphones to the number of those said about iPhone smartphones, and the positive sentiment towards Samsung’s products seem to be prevalent. It dropped, naturally, after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, but then it quickly bounced back up, currently nearly reaching the pre-Note 7 levels. The ”happiness” level of iPhone users is overall lower than that of Galaxy users, but it has stayed on more or less the same level over the years. iPhone X may change this when it ...

Apple’s statistics show that 59% of its devices now operate under the newest version of the iOS. Much less, 33%, still work on iOS 10; 8% – the ones whose owners are living under really large and mossy boulders – is operated by iOS 9 or older.In Android devices, OS used is pretty optional. There are still lots of people who are using Android 6.0 or even older. When it comes to iOS, though, updating your system is much less of a personal choice and more of a ”Do or GTFO” type of thing. More people would upgrade to iOS 11 already were it not for the plethora of ...

iPhone X is not only more sought after and bought more often than iPhone 8, but it is unlocked more often as well. According to Sim-unlock’s statistics, there is at the very least a 5th more iPhone X’s on the market than there are iPhone 8’s. In other words, for every hundred iPhone 8 smartphones that are unlocked by Sim-unlock, there are 125 iPhone X devices that get the same treatment. It is not hard to see why, too; it is more expensive, granted, but iPhone X offers a much bigger technological advancement than iPhone 8, which is dubbed ”an iPhone 7, only a bit ...

Wow, a news about Apple actually doing something right. That is a rare sight on IMEI24 lately. Anyway, back to the news. Apple has recently released the newest iOS update, iOS 11.1.2. Among a number of fixes that the update offers, perhaps the most important one is this:”Fixes an issue where the iPhone X screen becomes temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid temperature drop.”Well that is nice, is it not. I do not personally know anyone who owns an iPhone X so I cannot testify to the fixes’ efficiency, but hopefully it works as intended. Oh, and remember to ...

Shame it was released in late Autumn, then. A growing number of iPhone X users reports issues with X’s touchscreen when in cold temperatures, i.e. outdoors. Here is the very first Reddit post that comes up when searching for the topic:I’ve noticed that my iPhone X screen becomes very unresponsive as soon as I step outside. It literally takes 2 seconds from going inside to the cold outdoors and my screen stops being very responsive. I try swiping on websites and it doesn’t register my finger. It’s very noticeable. Is anyone else having this problem?Edit: possible ...
