Like the Z2 (and the Z1 before it), the Z3 sports Sony&rsquo;s metal- and glass-heavy OmniBalance design.</p> <p>There do appear to be some minor differences, however. First and foremost, the Z3&rsquo;s sides are <a href="http://evleaks.at/2014/07/24/sony-xperia-z3-another-pic/" target="_blank">a little curvier</a> &ndash; something which should please anyone (and there were plenty of us) who felt the Z2 was a little too angular and uncomfortable in the hand. Secondly, the shots don&rsquo;t appear to show a second speaker grille, suggesting Sony may have removed its stereo capabilities. That&rsquo;d obviously be quite a retrograde step, so we&rsquo;re hoping it&rsquo;s not the case.</p> <p>A big advantage of the OmniBalance design is that it&rsquo;s water- and dust-proof, so the Z3 will be capable of withstanding anything the weather can throw at it &ndash; as well as enabling you to make calls from the shower and watch Netflix in your Jacuzzi.</p> <p><strong>Update 01/09/14</strong>: Leaked shots, such as the latest one below from Tenaa - China&#39;s certification body, have shown black and white colourways so far.

Jobs was right, of course, but the truth is that more and more people are willing to use both hands on their phone as a trade-off for more screen space.</p> <p>With Android flagship phones regularly topping 5in in display real estate, it&rsquo;s time for Apple to follow suit and deliver something for the size-hungry.</p> <p><strong>Will it get it?</strong><br />Oh yes. Since taking the helm at Apple, Tim Cook has already approved an increase in the iPhone&#39;s screen size to 4in, and the iPhone 6 is going much, much further. In fact, it looks liks Apple will launch two iPhone 6 models; a 4.7in iPhone 6, and a 5.5 in model, which may rejoice under the name <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/apple-iphone-6l/review" target="_blank">iPhone 6L</a>.</p> <p>The iPhone is finally following in its Android and Windows Phone rivals&rsquo; footsteps, and that&rsquo;s largely (no pun intended) a good thing &ndash; although we expect the decision to upset the many proponents of one-handed phone use still out there.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="A leaked 4.7in iPhone 6 next to a Samsung Galaxy S5" alt="A leaked 4.7in iPhone 6 next to a Samsung Galaxy S5" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/iphone_6_leak_galaxy_s5_white_gsmarena_1.jpg?1409534046" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> More storage space </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Why does it need it?</strong><br />The iPhone 5s comes in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB options, and that might seem like enough to you in comparison to Apple&rsquo;s smartphone rivals (the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/g3/lg-g3/review">LG G3</a> has 16GB, the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/htc/htc-one-2/review">HTC One M8</a> 16GB or 32GB, the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/android/oneplus-one/review">OnePlus One</a> 16GB or 64GB). But with most of these rivals offering expandable storage via a microSD slot and Apple remaining resolutely expansion-free, there&rsquo;s a lack of flexibility there that hurts current iPhone models.</p> <p><strong>Will it get it?</strong><br />Quite possibly. Rumour has it 16GB will no longer be an option for the iPhone 6, that the 4.7in version will come in 32GB and 64GB flavours and that the 5.5in version will also offer a 128GB option. As for a microSD slot, we wouldn&rsquo;t hold your breath: Apple likes to keep its smartphone lines as clean as possible, and an extra slot for cards just doesn&rsquo;t fit in with that ethos.

And you&rsquo;d be right: it&rsquo;ll capture really lovely images and video, including buttery smooth slow motion clips, in almost any situation. However, Apple can&rsquo;t afford to rest on its laurels here, as a handful of competitors have edged ahead in the snapping stakes: the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/g3/lg-g3/review">LG G3</a>, <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/sony/sony-xperia-z2-sirius/review">Sony Xperia Z2</a> and <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/galaxy-s5/samsung-galaxy-s5/review">Samsung Galaxy S5</a> are all arguably superior photo performers.</p> <p><strong>Will it get it?</strong><br />Hard to say for certain &ndash; but we&rsquo;re leaning towards yes.&nbsp;With the new models being larger, there&rsquo;s more room inside for Apple&rsquo;s product engineers to play with, and some sources have said a 10MP or 13MP sensor is on the way as well as a larger f/1.8 aperture and optical image stabilisation.

Yes, the 5s is a top notch smartphone, but with almost-as-impressive Android handsets like the OnePlus One going for less than RM1000, Apple&rsquo;s pricing is definitely pushing a number of potential customers into the arms of rival manufacturers.</p> <p><strong>Will it get it?</strong><br />We&rsquo;ve had few indications that Apple intends to lower the price on its flagship phones, and in the past the company has generally kept previous-generation devices around as the option for buyers operating on a tighter budget. Even the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/iphone-5c/review">iPhone 5c</a>, predicted by many to be &ldquo;the first budget iPhone&rdquo;, was basically just an iPhone 5 with a natty plastic body and a decidedly non-budget asking price.

Battery life is often one of the last things manufacturers talk about when bigging up their new phone, because thanks to huge screens and life-sapping quad-core processors, most phones will, at some point, have you anxiously scrambling for a charger when it&rsquo;s really inconvenient. The iPhone 5s has enough battery to get the average user through a day of normal use, but it&rsquo;s not the best out there.</p> <p><strong>Will it get it?</strong><br />If rumours are accurate, it just might. With both iPhone 6 models rocking a bigger body, there&rsquo;s space inside for a bigger fuel tank, and reports claim it might be a 2,100mAh capacity battery &ndash; a big jump from the 1,560mAh battery inside the iPhone 5s. Of course, there&rsquo;ll be a bigger screen (or rather, bigger screens) to power, so it could be that overall battery life remains roughly the same. We&rsquo;ve also seen a leaked shot of a 2,915mAh battery, which could be destined for the larger 5.5in model.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Some iPhone 6 batteries, apparently" alt="Some iPhone 6 batteries, apparently" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/iphone-6-batteries_2.jpg?1409534046" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-5"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Water resistance </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Why does it need it?</strong><br />Two of the iPhone&rsquo;s biggest competitors, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Sony Xperia Z2, are both water resistant, and we can&rsquo;t count the number of times we&rsquo;ve heard iPhone-using friends and family members bemoaning their dead devices thanks to unplanned dips in the bath, basin or bog. Waterproofing would save a lot of tears.</p> <p><strong>Will it get it?</strong><br />Probably not. Much has been written and leaked concerning the iPhone 6&rsquo;s build, and barely any of it suggests that Apple has decided to seal the phone against the watery ravages of a dunking.

The screen&rsquo;s physical dimensions are well known: 5.5 inches. But the resolution has been subject to speculation.</p> <p><a href="http://daringfireball.net/2014/08/larger_iphone_display_conjecture" target="_blank">Apple expert John Gruber&rsquo;s reasoning</a> delves deeply into Apple&rsquo;s approach to iOS, based around screen points and usability. This is in stark contrast to many sites that have just yelled 1080p and made a break for the pub, or oddly argued Apple&rsquo;s flagship device would have an identical resolution to the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, but with less sharpness.</p> <p>Gruber speculates there&rsquo;ll be a 1334 x 750 Retina display on the 4.7-inch model and a 2208 x 1224 kind of &rsquo;super Retina&#39; display on the 5.5-inch iPhone 6L, which packs even more pixels into a tiny space.

September 19 seems the probable release date, assuming the iPhone 6L is on time and not a figment of the tech industry&rsquo;s collective imagination. Or some other random date in 2015 if it&rsquo;s delayed.</p> <p>Whatever the case, claims that the iPhone 6L will be limited seem staggeringly obvious given supply chain issues with every other iPhone to date shortly after release.

The addition of the latter would truly make it a value-for-money phone at its price point.</p> <p>As to the screen, it looks a little larger and could possibly be a 5in display which is a small bump but not to the that point it becomes unwieldy.</p> <p>In the meantime, <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/samsung">Samsung is also gearing up for September</a> and we think it&#39;ll pull a few surprises come the launch of the next Note.</p> <p>[Source and images: <a href="https://www.facebook.com/hellomotohk/posts/454112568061997" target="_blank">HellomotoHK</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Leaked: Sneak peek of the next Moto G" alt="Leaked: Sneak peek of the next Moto G" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/moto%20g2_2.jpg?1409128122" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/leaked-sneak-peek-next-moto-g/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/leaked-sneak-peek-next-moto-g/news#comments Android Motorola Smartphones Wed, 27 Aug 2014 05:17:17 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1445994 at http://www.stuff.tv LG G3 Stylus: another G3 variant with, yes, a stylus http://www.stuff.tv/my/lg/lg-g3-stylus-another-g3-variant-yes-stylus/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> LG has taken inspiration from the Samsung Galaxy Note range in this upcoming smartphone </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="LG G3 Stylus: another G3 variant with, yes, a stylus" alt="LG G3 Stylus: another G3 variant with, yes, a stylus" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/lg-g3-stylus_0.jpg?1409103139" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Not long after the launch of the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/russian-retailer-blows-cover-lg-s-g3-s-g3-mini/news">G3 Beat</a>, LG has announced another variant of its G3 flagship phone: the LG G3 Stylus.</p> <p>Given its name, you won&rsquo;t be surprised to learn that it comes with a stylus &ndash; LG&rsquo;s own Rubberdium pen &ndash; and like the Samsung Galaxy Note range it&rsquo;s been designed with pen use in mind. A suite of apps called QuickMemo+, for example, allows you to make and share handwritten notes and sketches.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Big screen but reduced specs </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The phone offers a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 5.5in 960 x 540 IPS LCD screen, 8GB of expandable storage, a 1.3MP front-facing camera and a 13MP main camera, a 3,000mAh removable battery and Android 4.4.2.
