iOS vs Android – Chinese Market

Samsung has been left by Apple behind, as it asserts the best mobile brand in China’s place, in devotion and comprehension. Certainly one of the greatest smartphone consumer market on earth, China has expressed its dismay given the Apple option.

Samsung has consistently been Apple’s largest competition of the recent years for many portion, with Samsung constantly being the top mobile brand in the big Chinese marketplace regarding devotion and consumer recognition. China Brand Research Center is running surveys to rate distinct brands throughout the China Brand Power Index, where Samsung has consistently enjoyed the most effective standing for the brand that is cellular .


The recent 2014 survey nevertheless, has Apple rocketing to snatch the leading standing. The most recent survey polled some 13,500 Chinese aged between 60 and 15 and was conducted to January 2014 from August 2013. Apple was able to squeeze past Samsung with one huge jump, although the results note that this time around did really enhance.

In light of those positive developments, as well as the prevailing goal of getting an enormous ball of the Chinese marketplace, Apple is seeking to start 25 new retail shops in the following couple of years in the united states with a population of over 1.4 billion.

It has actually been Apple’s year up to now, and when we look back at 2013, Tim Cook said “China is now our second-biggest marketplace, I consider it’s going to become our first.”

You need to rename groups of conversations in Messages? Now you can even on Apple products

In the stock Messages app on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch when you chat with two or more people in a conversation the name of the group displays just the separated names of yours interlocutors. This don’t happens with another’s messaging services like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, and that’s why is annoying when you use Apple products.

But now a solution to that problem appears. Last august we tested a past jailbreak tweak called MessageRenamer, updated with both iOS 7 and 64-bit compatibility.
The tweak made possible for you to easily change the name of conversations in both the Messages app and biteSMS extension. You can talk with one or more person same time and the tweak will work. You can learn how that is possible below.
When you are in a conversation try to tap and hold on its header for rename it. Now you will see a pop-up menu with three options. Tap first option which is RENAME and a text prompt will be open here you can enter and save a new conversation name. If you wish to change the conversation name back tap RESET, and use CANCEL when you need to close the menu.
Chatting with groups of peoples is more useful and fun same time. For example you will remember where you know a contact and how can he or she to help you in the future. Renaming  groups in coworkers, students or family is now just so easy and I’m surprised that Apple didn’t include that from the start on chat app.
As the tweak don’t suffer from bugs, even after developer Atlas Wegman has rewritten, MessageRenamer7 remain good for use and clean.
We can buy MessageRenamer7 almost free, just 99 cents on Cydia. For the real free one you can try the oldest version for iOS 6. Recently the tweak has some problems with 64 bits configuration, but an update was released and that is expected to hit BigBoss soon.  Also is good to know that there is no option to configure the settings after installation.

Introducing a Professional Photographer: the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact

It has been a while since we’ve come across a phone that embodies powerful specs and a fantastic camera, in a beautifully designed case and we feel it’s time to share this with you, our readers. We will go into one of the most striking features of the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact phone, the 20,7MP camera, an impressive achievement which is best demonstrated by comparison with some of its competitors. This is why we’ve tested several cameras on high-end models, such as the iPhone5, the Samsung Galaxy S4, the HTC One, the LG G2 and a Panasonic Lumix GH2. We’ve described the results in the section below, so keep reading…

Visual sharpness
We will continue this review of the Sony Xperia Z2 and Z1 Compact by explaining how we obtained the images with the cameras attached to these two devices. Firstly, settings were left on Superior Auto mode for all scenes we shot, because we consider that most users prefer this setting themselves when venturing out to take photos. It is our personal belief that very few people actually make use of the maximum 20,7 MP resolution, which produces huge photos. Furthermore, the Superior Auto function provides users with a digital zoom feature and also adjusts the scene by itself – which can be a huge help for beginners who want to dabble in the art of photography by using a high quality device that provides them with great results. We did not use other modes other than the default ones and if we did, we promptly specified them accordingly.

It’s not easy to classify how sharp and crisp colors are reproduced by a smartpohne’s camera, since this particular aspect is very much dependant on what you actually photograph, scene by scene. However, you’d be surprised to notice that if using to a Sony Xperia Z1 or a Sony Xperia Z1 Compact, both cameras will produce a neutral color tone and provide you with similar results that you would expect from a proficient camera.
On to the competitors, some of their cameras produce results that simply look either dull or too exposed, other times not vivid enough – as is the case with the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the LG G2, whose results sometimes seem too bright, although overall the phones do take good pictures. Others, like the HTC One camera, seem to decide for themselves, depending on the situation, how to produce results – sometimes it will produce pictures that are overexposed, other times they will be neutral, on occasion it produces cold and distorted shades of green and yellow on certain details, depending on a particular situation. Finally, at the other end of the spectrum, some cameras generate results that we as users enjoy, partly because they somewhat enhance the scenes we photograph, in an unnatural way: for the iPhone 5, the camera makes photos look pleasantly warmer than they are in reality, which may seem nice for a while, but does not reflect what you actually photographed.
In conclusion, we believe the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is an excellent phone with an amazing set of features, packed up in an attractive body that has succeeded in differentiating itself from many of its premium competitors on the market today: it isn’t bulky, nor huge, it fits decently in your pocket and looks fantastic. But this is not about the style only. Can you honestly and freely name many other top of the line smartphones that are actually fitted with such a powerful camera? We’re talking about a 20,7MP lens – one of the most advanced we’ve encountered on such a device.
