The iPhone vs. the Samsung Galaxy – is One Better than the Other?

When you are trying to buy the latest phone, you want to make sure that you take a look at everything that you need to know about the process. How much do you want to spend on it? What sorts of features do you need in order to achieve your goals? And what is going to be able to stand the test of time when it comes to the hardware?

You will likely start to discover that there are a lot of things that you need to consider when you start looking at your potential devices. Many people will get to a point where they assume that their solution is going to be a simple one – do they want to invest in an iPhone, or would it be better for them to go ahead and put their money into the Samsung Galaxy? Is one of them actually better than the other, or does it not really matter what you are going to want to do with your options?

The fact of the matter is, there is not one really good answer. It depends on what you prefer. Some people believe that the Android interface is a lot easier to use than the iPhone one, so they would go with a Samsung Galaxy device instead. Others believe that the iPhone is much better quality and offers more when it comes to apps and other upgrades that you may want to get. In short, you want to look around and compare the various devices that are on the market and see what ones have the traits that are most important to you. Then, you will know which one is actually going to be the best one for you and your needs.

Many times, you want to make sure that what you get is going to keep up with anything and everything that you may be trying to do as time goes on. A piece of hardware that is not going to break easily and that you are likely going to keep for many years is what you want to go with. And both the Galaxy and the iPhone have recent models which make that goal much easier for you to achieve in the long run.

How Do I Recover my Deleted Photos from a Samsung Device?

How Do I Recover my Deleted Photos from a Samsung Device?

We all know that horror that we feel when we get into a situation where we lose different pieces of data off of our mobile devices. We may feel a sense of panic and wonder how you are ever going to get all of it back. That being said, if you have lost photos, you may feel a profound sense of loss about the whole thing. What are you supposed to do at that point? Are there ways that you can get the pictures back into your possession? Here are a few things that you can consider and look at when trying to find pictures that may have been deleted at some point in time.

  • Check all of the cloud apps that you have on your Samsung Device. The most innovative and helpful things that many people utilize on their mobile devices are cloud apps. The cloud can be incredibly helpful because, many times, you’re going to automatically back up into there. That means that, even if you happen to lose all of the information, pictures, or files that you have on your device, they have likely been backed up already. This can save you a lot of stress and time in the long run.
  • Look at Your SD card and all of the internal files in there. Sometimes, your pictures may just be hiding somewhere else. You (or someone else) may have accidentally put them in another folder or done something else so that they aren’t where you expect them to see. Take some time to really look at the folders that you need to work through and you may find a lot of the pictures that you thought were deleted.
  • Take a peek at the websites that you use to upload pictures. Alright, so the photos don’t appear to be waiting for you on your device. What are you supposed to do then? Sometimes, you will find that there are a number of other places that you could have uploaded your pictures without realizing it. Did you ever email the pictures in question to someone? Did you upload ant of them on social media websites? Did you put them into a folder on your computer or other device? There are a lot of places where your photos could be, so make sure that you look around on other devices and websites before you take the next steps toward attempting to restore the photos that have gone missing.

If you are still trying to determine how you are going to get your photos off of your device and you need a little bit of help in order to try and achieve that goal, you want to make sure that you come and talk to one of our repair technicians, which you can learn more about at https://www.telcoworld.com.au/mobile-phones/repairs/. We may be able to help you to find what you may be looking for so that you can get all of your deleted photos back without any problems.

5 Surprising Facts About Mobile Phone Repairs

Mobile Phone Repairs MelbourneWith every new day – with practically every second – we seem to be growing more and more dependent on our smartphones to function in our daily lives. We use them to look up movie times, find a great brownie recipe, talk to our moms, our lovers, keep track of our kids… We use our phones for absolutely everything.

Keeping that in mind, it’s becoming less and less of an option to go without a cellphone, or even living with a damaged handset.

Read on, to find out 5 surprising facts about mobile phone repairs.

5 Surprising Facts About Mobile Phone Repairs

  1. Apple sold around 51.2 million iPhones last quarter. At the beginning of April 2016, Apple announced its financial statistics for Q2 of 2016. Although the smartphone titan is reporting a decline in sales for the first time in 13 years, that’s still a healthy trade! Considering that, on avearge, ⅓ of iPhone owners report living with cracked screens, or other minor cosmetic damages, that’s a staggering 17 million new handsets, every three months, to be kept in perfect working order.
  2. The two most common smartphone activities are texting and taking photos.While it may be called a “smartphone”, that’s really just the tip of the iceberg of what these wunder-devices are capable of. Heck, many of us barely use the speech capabilities of our phones at all, except to order a pizza when there’s no emoji delivery. That means having our screens in pristine condition is even more important than ever. Not only are cracked screens an eyesore, they can even prove a health risk, via cut fingers, and that’s not even mentioning the restricted activities or the risk to our phone’s data.
  3. 12% of iPhones are damaged by spilled beer. Water damage is one of the most common causes for mobile phone repair. That’s water, specifically. In fact, only 1 out of 8 mobile phones are damaged due to drinking-related accidents!
  4. The second most common cause of liquid damage is spilled soda. Although spilled water is the leading cause of liquid damage, soda follows closely behind. The sticky, sugary liquid is even more of a nightmare to repair than regular old Hydrogen Hydroxide, so keep those handsets away from your Dr. Pepper or Mr. Pibb!
  5. If you can make it through you’re first year, you’re golden. Roughly 10% of iPhone, iPad, and Samsung Galaxy owners damage their device within a year of getting it. Sometimes, tragicallly, it can happen within weeks of purchasing our brand new, high-tech device.

Have you damaged your new smartphone, and are in need of mobile phone repairs? Or maybe you just need your older model tuned up a bit. Either way, we can repair most common smartphone problems – like screen repairs – within 24 hours or less!

iPhone Sales Decline For The First Time Ever

iPhone 5 repairsAccording to Gartner, Apple experienced its first decline in iPhone sales since their initial release, during the final quarter of 2015.

Is the beginning of the end for the mobile media juggernaut?

Not hardly.

Apple still did a healthy business, despite being 4.4% lower than the previous year, selling 71.5 million mobile phones, instead of 74.8.

Huawei and Samsung were the only two mobile phone manufacturers to report an improvement in sales last year.

When taken together, smartphone sales representatives from around the globe managed to sell 403 million handsets in the fourth quarter of 2015 – 9.7% increase the fourth quarter of 2014, but still being the slowest growth percentage since smartphones hit the market.

Samsung is leading the pack, with 20.7% of the market share, compared to 19.9% in 2014. Apple, coming in at Number Two, fell a couple of points, from 20.4% in 2014 to 17.7% in 2015.

Huawei came it at Number Three in the mobile market, ascending to 8% market share, from 5.7% in 2014. Lenovo and China’s Xiaomi were close behind, securing 5% and 4.5% of mobile handset sales, respectively.

Overall, mobile markets sold 1.4 billion units in 2015, up 14.4% from 2014.

Gartner’s Research Director Anshul Gupta speculated on the cause of these trends, claiming “Low-cost smartphones in emerging markets, and strong demand for premium smartphones, continued to be the driving factors. An aggressive pricing from local and Chinese brands in the midrange and entry-level segments of emerging markets led to consumers upgrading more quickly to affordable smartphones.”

Also, according to Gupta, many of the emerging Asian/Pacific market are anticipated to upgrade their devices quickly, to the same brand they already own.

It’s interesting to speculate on the reasons for the falling figures. While it’s tempting to blame a faltering economy, or the public’s attention being diverted to some new fad, the fact of the matter is, many/most people don’t need a brand new phone every single year, no matter how powerful or trending it might be.

Are you still attached to your older iPhone? Maybe looking to have your iPhone 5 repaired in Melbourne? Or to have a screen replaced? You’re in luck! We can do most common repairs while you wait, with guaranteed manufacturer parts!
