Is It Time For You To Upgrade To Windows 10?

If you own a laptop, desktop computer, or another device that has Windows 8 installed, you've probably received a number of prompts suggesting that you upgrade to Windows 10.

Some people took the upgrade as soon as it was made available to them. Others took a wait and see approach. They wanted to find out what the general consensus on this OS was before they took the upgrade.



If you're on the fence about upgrading, keep these things in mind.

1. Try It For Yourself

If you go to a retail store that sells computers, you should be able to give the new Windows operating system a trial run. See if you're comfortable using it. If you are, you can go ahead and make the upgrade. If you aren't comfortable, you can wait.

2. Talk To Your Friends And Family Members

You probably already know a lot of people who have gone through with the upgrade. Talk to some of these people and see how they feel about it. Were they happier with Windows 8, or do they think that upgrading was a good idea? The more information you can get from them, the better.

3. Read Reviews On Tech Sites

A lot of respected tech sites have discussed Windows 10 at great length. Read some of their articles and reviews. They should provide you with a strong overview of the system's pros and cons.

At the end of the day, you're the one who is going to have the use the new operating system. Try to find a site that's aimed at people like you. A review that talks about how the new Windows works on business computers won't be very helpful if you want to install it on a computer meant for personal use. Try to find information that is genuinely relevant to you.

Switching to a new OS can always be a challenge. Even if the new operated system is a genuine improvement on the last one, you're already used to doing things one way. Learning to do things a new way can be a giant hassle.

However, if you take time time to learn about Windows 10, you'll be able to make an educated decision. Whether you stick with your current OS or go through with the upgrade, you'll be happy with the choice that you make.

Top Reasons Why You Should And Should Not Buy The Samsung Galaxy S7

Can you imagine a life without a mobile phone?  I certainly cannot.  I can imagine a life without a great deal of things, but if you take away my technological devices I am certain I'd be unable to survive.  Why is this?  It is because our society has become one dependent on technology for communication, interaction, and basic daily functioning.  New mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and even fitness devices are being produced constantly and it is essential to keep up with the times.  Of course, with the plethora of options available it is necessary to make some considerations before committing to a single device.  This article provides information on why you should and should not buy the Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone.


3 Reasons Why You Should Buy The Galaxy S7


1. The MicroSD Card

Twenty years ago storage was not an important feature of a mobile phone, but nowadays storage capacity is a vital aspect.  This is due to the fact that we download numerous apps onto the smartphone for our lifestyle needs.  I have a minimum of ten apps ranging from games and audio apps to GPS tracking and fitness monitors.  To accommodate these items, as well as the traditional phone numbers and other contact information, a large storage capacity is required.  The Samsung Galaxy S7 has identified this need and responded with 200GB additional storage in a microSD card.

2. Waterproof And Dustproof

A problem that many people experience with mobile phones is dust; hence the demand for smartphone covers.  The Galaxy S7 is now completely dustproof being fully resistant to dust particles.  Furthermore, it is also waterproof to a depth of approximately 3m - still to be confirmed.

3. High Speed Performance

When compared to the Galaxy S6, the S7 provides a speedier performance with 30% quicker CPU and 64% quicker GPU.  Often moving between apps on the device can be slow, but the S7 has increased speed and clarity - dependent on your region, of course.

2 Reasons Why You Should Not Buy The Galaxy S7


1. Little Difference To The Galaxy S6

While the Samsung Galaxy S7 has approached and resolved many of the concerns noted by S6 users, there is little difference to the specifications.  The performance may be speedier, the design may be better, and the microSD card may have been returned, but these changes are not necessarily worth the large purchase amount.  If you are holding a phone less high quality than the Galaxy S6, the specifications and performance of the S7 may be worlds apart from the rest; however, the S6 is very similar to the S7 and may not be worth the upgrade.

2. Paying For The Design, Not The Specs

The great appeal of the Galaxy S7 is its new design with a smaller SD card, water and dustproof handling, and high speed performance - the specifications of pixels and resolution feature matter little because there is no great change from the previous Galaxy models.  If you are a great fan of design and the smartphone appearance, then the S7 is definitely worth a look; however, if you are more interested in specifications then there are other models that are as powerful without being as costly.

New OnePlus 3 About To Hit The Market

The much anticipated OnePlus 3 handset is about to make a splash when in is released in May 2016. The much anticipated handset will be available from the OnePlus website, as well as eventually via several telecom service providers.

Many users are looking forward to getting their hands on the OnePlus 3 in part due to the fact that it is rumored to be able to charge from empty to full in a scant 15 minutes - and in today's world of heavy use and media applications that's good news for all power users.

The new OnePlus 3 is a bit of a departure from its predecessors in terms of design. Leaked images show that it's going to be more iPhone inspired whcih means a sleek new look for the low price smartphone - again, great news for those who want top of the range smartphone functionality but don't want to spend the amount of money that the big names in the smartphone game are asking for their flagship models.


Users are also waiting with bated breath to see if the OnePlus 3 will come in two models - one supplied with 4GB RAM with 32 GB of storage and the other with 6GB and an impressive 64Gb of storage.

The rest of the hardware is pretty impressive for the price point that this phone is hitting. There will be a Snapdragon 820 processor, a five inch 1080p screen and a more than adequate 16mp back camera and 8mp front camera. Android Marshmallow will be doing the honors as an operating system. As far as functionality is concerned consumers will be looking forward to the NFC support for the OnePlus 3 - something which was absent from the OnePlus 2 and sorely missed by many.

The OnePlus 3 sets itself apart from the competition on price alone. In the U.S. it should retail for just over $300 cash. That's a significant saving when compared to the models that it's coming up against from the competition such as the Samsung Galaxy S7. Even though the OnePlus 3 specifications look a little dated when going up against other heavy hitters it still represents incredible value for money and in all honesty no one is going to miss some of the cutting edge functionality and specifications of the latest and greatest phones that have just hit the market.
