Phone company giveth, customers taketh.

Australian telecommunications company Telstra made good on a promise on Sunday, giving mobile customers a day of free data as part of an apology for the outages experienced on mobile and Internet services nationwide last Tuesday.

Telstra said on its support page that it would not place restrictions on the amount of data a user could take advantage of on Sunday. Australians took this as meaning they should download everything in sight

The company announced Monday that customers didn’t hold back when it came to downloads on Telstra’s cellular network, amassing a total of 1,841 terabytes of data during the free-for-all extravaganza. It’s equivalent to 5.1 million episodes of Game Of Thrones, or 23 million downloaded copies of Kanye West’s new The Life Of Pablo album, Telstra said in a statement. Read more…

Apple's iPhone 7 will reportedly lose that camera 'bump'

If we had to deduct points for the iPhone 6/6S design, we’d probably do it for that unsightly camera bump on the back

Instead of lining up with the phone’s surface, the camera lens protrudes a few millimeters — not ideal when you want to place the phone on its back onto a firm surface

According to a new MacRumors report, however, the upcoming iPhone 7 won’t have the same problem, with the new, thinner iPhone camera sitting flush with the phone’s back

A recent rumor claimed that the iPhone 7 Plus is likely to have two rear cameras, while the regular iPhone 7 will have only one. It’s not entirely clear whether both devices will lose the camera bump; hopefully yes, but we’re in rumor territory here, so anything’s possible. Read more…

Looks like the cat is out of the bag

Earlier this week, Samsung sent out a typically cryptic invite for its next Unpacked event on Feb. 21 in Barcelona, without actually disclosing the names of the devices it plans to show. But what seems to be an error on the company’s developer site briefly showed that the Galaxy S7 Edge is likely to be one of Samsung’s upcoming phones

The error was first noticed by Dutch site Galaxy Club, which grabbed a screenshot from developer.samsung.com, where Galaxy S7 Edge was mentioned in several places Read more…

Apple’s rumored, upcoming 4-inch smartphone might be small compared to today’s flagship behemoths, but it won’t lack power — at least according to a new rumor

9to5Mac reports that the phone, which may or may not be called iPhone 5SE, will have Apple’s powerful A9 processor and M9 coprocessor — the same one used in the company’s current flagship, the iPhone 6S

The report also claims the new phone, which will replace the iPhone 5S (still in Apple’s lineup), will come in 16GB/64GB memory capacities.

Previous rumors indicated that the device would have A8/M8 chips from Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus phones. Other specs include a metal design, similar to that of the iPhone 6/6S and an 8-megapixel back camera, but no 3D Touch Read more…
