  We’ll all win when the next-gen Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8 cameras go to war The Galaxy Note 8 will be the first Samsung flagship to feature a dual lens camera on the back. Samsung recently announced that all its phone cameras will receive Isocell branding, revealing in the process that the Galaxy Note 8’s camera might be called Isocell Dual. A new report now lists some of the camera specs for the phone, suggesting that the Galaxy Note 8 should be a formidable iPhone 8 adversary in the coming camera war. According to an internal document supposedly seen by SamMobile, the Isocell Dual sensors will come with various features including depth sensing, optical zoom, and enhanced low-light capabilities.

Apple is expected to cross $ 1 ,000 in its next edition of the iPhone --will consumers be willing to pay the extra money? We reached out for their responses, on #TalkingTech.

LOS ANGELES — It’s a fact that iPhones have gotten more expensive every year, now topping off at a whopping $969 for an iPhone 7 Plus with 256 GB of storage.

Here's what Apple could be planning after the iPhone 8

  Here's what Apple could be planning after the iPhone 8 <p>Apple appears poised to totally break its typical release cadence, according to a new report from Nikkei.</p>Last year, Apple strayed from that tradition with the iPhone 7, which didn't have a radically new design. But in the next two years, Apple appears poised to totally break its typical release cadence, according to a new report from Nikkei.

So the 10th anniversary iPhone, the next model, expected to be massively re-designed and packed with state-of-the-art technology, could sell for as much as $1,200 to $1,400, according to some estimates. At which point you've got to wonder, will people actually pay that kind of money for an iPhone?

Yes, and happily, reports Tim Bajarin, an Apple analyst and president of Creative Strategies. “It will fly off the shelves."

First reason, the bragging rights: Bajarin expects the 10th anniversary edition to have an OLED screen (brighter, more colorful), a bigger, thinner body, the best (new and improved) smartphone camera and more graphics and computing power.

It's the extra cost of the bigger, OLED screen, plus expanded storage, that could push the top of the line iPhone to the $1,200 to $1,400 range, he says. Apple is also expected to update the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models with similar size bodies and new features.

Google Calendar gets an iOS widget, nearly three years after widgets launched

  Google Calendar gets an iOS widget, nearly three years after widgets launched Google Calendar users on iOS, rejoice: the official Google Calendar app for iPhone and iPad has finally gotten a Today widget, allowing you to preview upcoming events at a glance from the “Today’ section of the notification shade and lock screen, as spotted by 9to5Mac.&nbsp;The widget can show the next two events on your calendar, and expand to show another four. Like other Today widgets, the preview can also be accessed on iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 devices by pressing down with 3D Touch on the Google Calendar icon.

Of course, many people opt for the smaller, lighter versions — the least storage, and the non-Plus model. For instance, the smaller, 4.7-inch iPhone 7, with 32 GB of storage, is $649 — $320 less than the biggest, most fully loaded current iPhone.

And if you ponder the thought, why not charge more for the ultra-premium model? Apple has a new computer coming out later this year that will sell for $5,000. Hotel rooms  that used to cost $100 are now $200 and up. Many people drop $100,000 on Tesla cars when $20,000 Toyota Corollas run just fine.

Unlike all of those, we live with our iPhones. We wake up with them, we spend more time with them than our own families, we put them by our bed at night. A new iPhone for roughly $4 a day for the first year?

A case could be made.

We went out and asked consumers if they were ready to step up and were surprised that we actually got as many yeahs as we got nays.

“Absolutely,” said Ben Sugarman, a bookkeeper in Los Angeles. “It’s worth it.”

iPhone 8 mirror finish will make you look twice

  iPhone 8 mirror finish will make you look twice The new iPhone 8 is leaking more and now a new colour has slipped out that offers a “mirror-like” finish. According to Apple leak specialist Benjamin Geskin we can expect four colours for the iPhone 8 with the mirror finish as a new option. The images Geskin shared above and below are just of a phone case but give an idea of what we could expect.© Provided by Future Publishing Ltd. Since the iPhone 8 is widely leaked to be an all glass design this mirror finish could work really nicely. Especially for those that like to give themselves a quick glance without firing up the selfie snapper.

“People will come up to me and say, `Wow, I want that new iPhone—and you’ve got it.”

Josh Srinka, who works in insurance, said he was “committed” to buying one, and upgrading from his iPhone 6. “As technology evolves, everything gets more expensive. The iPhone is an integral part of my life. You walk around with a computer in your pocket.”

But student Mayra Alvarado is in the “never” camp. “No way—too expensive,” she says. “It’s just not worth it.”

The first iPhone sold for $599 in 2007, then $399, and eventually we started getting used to subsidized pricing from the wireless carriers that resulted in a price tag of $200 for a two-year contract. This masked the real price of the handset, which was factored into monthly wireless payments.

Now, even though many carriers offer leasing deals, the base price of the iPhones is steep—the 7 starts at $769, while the previous edition is available starting at $699. (Rival phones like the Samsung Galaxy S series or Google's Pixel aren't cheap either—the loaded Pixel XL is $869 and the top of the line Galaxy S8+ is $824.)

“Early adopters are always willing to spend more, to be first,” says Bajarin. “In Apple’s defense, the costs of materials will be high, so this needs to be priced as a premium. And remember, whatever Apple does, regardless of price, they’ll sell out every one they make, and be backordered.”

The next iPhone will be like a MacBook in one depressing way: price

  The next iPhone will be like a MacBook in one depressing way: price Apple’s best iPhone this year will also be the most expensive smartphone Apple ever made. The general consensus is that the entry price for the iPhone 8 will hover around $1,000. But the phone might be even more expensive than that, one storied Apple-watcher suggests.Apple fan John Gruber a few days ago proposed a wild idea at first sight that the iPhone 8’s price could start at $1,500. That probably won’t be what the cheapest iPhone 8 will cost, but Gruber still believes the entry price for the iPhone 8 will be around $1,200. And he’s got a few compelling arguments.

Verizon — And what would a tech week be without one huge data breach, right?

The names, addresses and phone numbers of millions of Verizon customers were publicly exposed online by one of the company's vendors. Verizon says about 6 million customer accounts were made publicly available when an employee of Nice Systems put information into a cloud storage area and permitted external access to the information.

Siri and apps. It was a great idea: Apple's Siri comes to apps, and out of that experience, becomes more useful and more relevant. But alas, the grand experiment just didn't work out. Apple made the move in 2016, and since then, very few app developers have taken the bait. Of the top 50 most downloaded apps, only 6 work fully with Siri.
