  • Wet Phone? Keep Calm, and Follow These Instructions

    iphone-in-water

    PLUNK! If you hear this sound, it’s time to act – fast! Saving your cellphone from a watery grave is possible with the right knowledge. Best Skins Ever is here to help with step-by-step instructions on how to dry (and save) your wet cell phone.

    1.   Remove the phone from water.

    This is arguably the most important step in the process. The more time your device spends in water, the less luck you’ll have rescuing it. DO NOT TURN THE PHONE ON! After a drop like this, you’ll be more than tempted to see if the phone works (trust us, we understand). The problem here is that the device could short circuit if it’s activated. It is best just to turn it off for now. Also, wipe away any excess water from the phone’s surface. Continue reading

  • The Good, the Poor and the Broken: Reselling Your Cell Phone

    Tips on How to Sell your Old PhoneIn this economy, we’re all looking for ways to save a few bucks and stay within our own budgets. You want to try to sell your old phone to come up with some fast cash to get that upgrade you’ve been eyeing, but how are you going to do it? Do you know where to sell, what people are looking for, or how much it’s worth? Don’t stress! We have all the information you’ll need before selling your phone online.

    No Phone is Created Equal

      All smartphones may serve the same general purpose, but in no way are they created equal when reselling. When selling your smartphone, it’s important to know what phones are in high demand, as well as the condition of your phone. These two factors determine the best time for you to sell your phone and receive maximum profit. Phones, much like cars, have an accelerated depreciation rate, and once the car leaves the lot, the value decreases instantly. Continue reading

  • The Next Big Thing Is Here – Google Launches Project Tango

    3-D Phone Mapping

    Just when we thought smartphones couldn’t become any more intelligent, Google, and its Advanced Technology and Projects Department (ATAP) is launching its latest initiative. Project Tango is an innovative take on 3D-sensing technology, allowing a smartphone to interpret an area from a three-dimensional perspective. ATAP’s technical program lead, Johnny Lee, says, "The goal of Project Tango is to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion."

    Just when we thought smartphones couldn’t become any more intelligent, Google, and its Advanced Technology and Projects Department (ATAP) is launching its latest initiative. Project Tango is an innovative take on 3D-sensing technology, allowing a smartphone to interpret an area from a three-dimensional perspective. ATAP’s technical program lead, Johnny Lee, says, "The goal of Project Tango is to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion."  The current model being used by developers is a 5-inch powerhouse, and highly resembles many white smartphones currently on the market. What sets the Android-powered Project Tango phone apart is its remarkable ability to render more than 250,000 measurements per second. Google anticipates that these features will have many applications including, gaming and indoor navigation being the notable among them.  Despite the broad vision that Google has for its latest project, Tango is still in the early stages of development. Prototypes will be distributed to developers in universities, and tech hubs around mid-March, all of whom Google has specifically hand picked.   The intention of giving it to developers is to have software focused on making full use of Project Tango’s capabilities. 3D gaming, navigation, mapping, and data processing are areas in which we can expect software to be developed.  Critics of Project Tango say that the technology being employed is nothing noteworthy, and that there have been similar uses of 3D sensing technology before. Lance Ulanoff of Mashable tells of his experience with Microsoft, where he was shown a device called the “Beamatron.” The mechanism was able to map the topography of the space in which it was contained, then project objects into the environment. Ulanoff was even allowed to control a virtual car via an Xbox 360 controller. Though the car was an illusion, it responded to objects as if it were physically present. At a certain point, the car drove up the side of a box, rolled sideway down an incline, and ran into a wall.  It’s no surprise that critics like Ulanoff and others, are opposed to Google’s efforts to “confine” such technology onto a “tiny” 4.5-inch screen, when they have had such hands-on experiences with the innovative, 3D mapping technology. Some argue that features such as these are only effectively represented through mediums such as the Xbox One’s Kinect, which appears to users via an HDTV screen.  Regardless, Google seems to be on the verge of rolling out a smartphone that is unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Project Tango’s release date has not been set, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated with all of the latest news. Find out more at Best Skins Ever
