After months of legal battles, Apple was finally granted a preliminary injunction against the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in the U.S. On the heels of Apple’s successful campaign to ban the sale of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Apple has bested Google again this week with California judge Lucy Koh deciding in favor of the Cupertino-based iPhone maker. The U.S. sales…

If I didn’t have an iPhone…

In 2007, Apple famously entered the smartphone world. Many at the time saw it as a mistake. But thanks to some incredible hype-building, great usability and a fantastically minimalist design, the iPhone has become the most successful phone on the planet. And it keeps getting more and more popular. Last quarter alone, Apple sold 37 million iPhones…

Why I switched back to the iPhone (again)

My love affair with the iPhone has developed over the past few years. I’d actually owned both BlackBerries and an Android phone before trying my first iPhone: the 3G.

Galaxy Nexus vs. iPhone 4S roundup

The Galaxy Nexus finally launched in the US this week, around a month later than the UK release. Since I’m based in England I got my hands on the GSM version on the first day and wrote up some comparison pieces.

iPhone 4S vs. Galaxy Nexus – part 2: Software

On Monday I published the first part of my Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 4S comparison. On the hardware side, the 4S came out on top with a score of 4 points to 3. It was a close run thing. An improved camera and better build quality would have seen the Ice Cream Sandwich-powered handset come out on top. Link: iPhone 4S vs. Galaxy Nexus – part 1. Would the…

iPhone 4S vs. Galaxy Nexus – part 1: Hardware

We love our iOS devices, that much is clear. However, it’s always great to check out the competition and see what’s going on. Is there another handset out there that can offer something we’re missing? I bought a Galaxy Nexus the other day to try and answer that question. Before I start this comparison, it’s important to note that I attempted in each…
