Shortly after the launch of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple posted a guide to help Android users migrate to iOS. This was only natural as the new iPhones were Apple’s first set of large sized phones and the company expected a lot of Android users to switch over. And now, Google has done the same, about a week after the announcement of Android 5.0 Lollipop. This guide from the Mountain View company underlines four crucial areas that the customers need to know about before switching from iOS to Android – Contacts (including...

There have been innumerable comparisons between Siri and Google Now in the past. But with the recent arrival of Cortana for Windows Phone, the game has changed somewhat. And with iOS receiving a major refresh with iOS 8, it’s only fair to assume that things have changed substantially. And the folks at Stone Temple Consulting have now tested the three voice assistants in a massive voice questions test where over 3,000 queries were asked to see which one comes out on top. And unsurprisingly, Google Now has excelled by a long margin...

As we all know, the LG G Flex from last year has a very unique flexible design. So it was only natural that the manufacturer would jump in on the criticism that Apple is seeing over reports of the iPhone 6 Plus bending under pressure. This has led to a Twitter trend called #bendgate where thousands of users have poked fun at Apple. LG however, had its own unique touch to the mockery. By showing an image of the LG G Flex, the manufacturer merely said – “Our phone doesn’t bend, it flexes…on purpose. #bendgate.” Our...

Again with the new iPhone(s)? Isn’t The Droid Guy supposed to be an Android-centric website? Leave droid fans alone. Be honest, you were thinking or wondering one of these things before you even finished reading our headline. And we completely understand your frustration. For the past two weeks or so, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus rumor roundups, previews, hands-on explorations and finally reviews have inundated the tech-focused part of the interwebs. Just one more reason to keep your online activity fixated on funny cat pics and (human) porn,...

  While other smart watches have come to market since its campaign, the Pebble is arguably the first to get mass adoption. And it’s the only watch that works cross-platform. And while Pebble doesn’t have any new hardware yet (that we know of), they are updating the software with a lot of improvements with version 2.5 today. The first improvement is that emojis can now be viewed on the Pebble’s screen, fixing the issue of the square boxes being there instead. There is also a new Compass app that can be downloaded...

It takes a good bit of courage, as well as a slight dose of desperation, to knowingly turn a blind eye to the specific guidelines set by your idol, mentor and forerunner, to whom you basically owe everything. “No one is going to buy a phone you can’t get your hand around” said Steve Jobs in 2010. “Bigger than bigger” said Tim Cook upon unveiling the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, at last acknowledging the superiority of the phablet. Sorry, the “iPhablet”. Bold move, when Cupertino knew full well it was exposing...

There are always apps that will notify you that something is happening on multiple devices, even when you’re just using one at the time. But soon Skype will not be on that list. Skype has announced a new feature for their app they call “active endpoint” which will contain chat notifications to only the device you’re currently using, rather than every device you have that has Skype installed. So if you’re on your phone, your tablet and computer will not show notifications. From Skype’s blog: “If...

Today Samsung has released a new ad for the Galaxy S5 and they are targeting iPhone users once again. For those of you who may be unaware, for the past few month it has been rumored that the new iPhone will come in a new screen size, either 4.7″ or 5.5″ (or both). If that happens that would remove a marketing reason for people to get another device, so Samsung has preemptively put out an ad. The ad clearly goes after users who are waiting on a bigger screened iPhone and showing them they have the option to not wait and buy...
