iphoneteardownWhile a recent teardown of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus points to 1,810mAh and 2,915mAh batteries stashed underneath the hood, respectively, here we are with another teardown that points to a rough guesstimate of how much Apple would have had to fork out to build each new handset. So far, the $200 mark had not been breached in the past where estimations were concerned, with different iPhones speculated to cost anywhere from $188 to $199 thereabouts. However, it seems that the iPhone 6 Plus has managed to surpass the $200 mark, while the iPhone 6 remains right on target.

Here is an interesting device from them that is known as the Canon PIXMA iP110 Wireless Mobile Printer, and we do wonder whether this particular printer will also be able to be hacked to run a game of Doom on it.

iphone6 bendSomehow, I cannot help but think back of Alanis Morissette’s hit song, “Hand in my Pocket” when I read about reports of iPhone 6 Plus handsets actually bending a few days after purchased, where there are even photos that confirm this allegation as you can see above. Alanis could release an updated version of the song, where the lyrics could go “I’ve got one hand in my pocket, and a bent iPhone 6 Plus in the other.” It looks as though it is not a good idea at all to place your newly purchased iPhone 6 Plus in your pocket – front, back or otherwise, for too long, lest it starts to warp.

oppo n3 coolingIt goes without saying that using normal plastic to manufacture the external chassis of your smartphone is not going to cut the mustard any more these days if you are going to compete on the high end side of things. Most of the flagship devices that we see these days will sport a milled aluminum chassis, or one that has quality metal accents at strategic places. Oppo of China does not want to miss out on this proverbial boat as well, so to speak, and has already announced a new flagship device that will be out next month. Known as the Oppo N3, it seems that there are new rumors that point to top grade materials being used to build the handset.
