Your iPhone X Fantasy Might be Broken

As iPhone X has been released just for a couple of weeks, it should be a cheerful thing for the majority of Apple fans. However, is that true?

Massive negative news of iPhone X in different stages from manufacturing up to post-release can be found on the internet and maybe you should have a look at those:

Problem 1: Large shipment or not

Tim Cook had already taken steps in previous years to address the principle of releasing ‘overnight’ or ‘weekend’ sales figures of a product launch. The figure does reflect Apple’s ability to ship large quantities of iPhones for launch weekend so may not reflect the true demand, but everyone read it that way so that potential pain point was removed.

The problem with that is it leaves the geekerati looking for other signs. And when the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus launched, there was an obvious indicator that something was not following Cupertino’s script. There were no queues. There were no hoards of geekerati forced to wait in line to be released into the Apple Stores. There was no wait for any of the iPhone 8 family.

Which is why it's interesting that Apple, for the very first time, has felt the need to remind everyone that they should come to the Apple Store on launch day and they might still get an iPhone X… but they have to come early:

iPhone X will be available in more than 55 countries and territories, and in Apple Stores beginning Friday, November 3 at 8:00 a.m. local time. Stores will have iPhone X available for walk-in customers, who are encouraged to arrive early.

No doubt Apple will make sure the queues are visible outside every Apple Store.

Problem 2: Latest iOS 11 but shortest battery life

Then there’s iOS 11. Apple has been rolling out almost weekly bug fixes to the latest operating system. All of the current evidence points to iOS 11 having a detrimental effect on battery life across a wide range of iOS powered handsets. A cursory check on Twitter, Facebook, and in Apple’s own support forums reveals an avalanche of problems around poor performance and degraded battery life.

Problem 3: Does Face ID really recognize your face?

Then there’s the achilles heel of the iPhone X, facial recognition. Long believed to be the subsystem that has caused production to be delayed and the limiting factor in manufacturing units, Bloomberg’s Alex Webb and Sam Kim today reported on a number of issues around the manufacturing process, specifically highlighting the headache of Face ID.

Problem 4: The annoying green line & crappy sound issue

Usually this green line issue will appear during the blu-ray playback inside the blu-ray player, unfortunately and even worse this time, some iPhone X units are said spontaneously developing the same green line problem on the display screen.

Also the shadow of the looming iPhone X issue has been reported frequently as well. Another problem we have to mention is the distortion & buzzing sounds from earpiece speaker that some iPhone X users are experiencing right now.

Problem 5: High repair fee, let’s do the math.

iPhone is currently sold for $999.00 with the lower configuration and this is already the highest pricing in iPhone’s history ever. If you break the fragile screen or backpanel by accident, you may have to pay over half of the cost for the phone as the repair fee.

So it’s your own choice now to buy an iPhone X or not!

Nokia 2017 Comeback with Full Power in Different Models and Tips to Play Blu-ray on Them

2017 no doubt is a comeback year for the mobile manufacturer giant Nokia. Since early Feb this year, Nokia has released the first model Nokia 3, then followed by Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and the latest Nokia 8, which was just announced the debut a few days ago in Oct.

Nokia 3

Nokia 5

Nokia 6

Nokia 8

The chart below shows some main features of each Nokia model both from inside and outside:

Nokia Design Display Camera SIM Card OS Storage
Nokia 3 EUR139.00 Polycarbonate & Aluminium 5'' Corning Gorilla 8MP both Sides Both Single or Dual Android Nougat 16GB up to 128GB
Nokia 5 EUR189.00 Metal-laminated & polarized 5.2'' HD Corning Gorilla 13 MP at back, 8MP in front Both Single or Dual Android Nougat 16GB up to 128GB
Nokia 6 EUR229.00 Metal & Aluminium 5.5'' HD Corning Gorilla 16 MP at back, 8MP in front Both Single or Dual Android Nougat 32GB up to 128GB
Nokia 8 Price Unknown Mirror Aluminium 5.3'' 2K Corning Gorilla 13 MP at both sides bothie mode Both Single or Dual Android Nougat 64GB up to 256GB

Tips for Blu-ray playback on these new models: since Blu-ray format is not supported directly with Nokia new phones, a little bit extra conversion work has to be done before watching Blu-ray contents on Nokia phones.

Leawo Blu-ray Ripper under this circumstance is no doubt the best choice to do so! It supports to import all Blu-ray video formats and convert them to Nokia-friendly format MP4 with different resolutions for different phone models and screens.


Besides that, users are able to further edit the Nokia MP4 format for better output quality. For example, they can adjust the video and audio parameters of MP4, and trim/crop/add effect and 3D to the original Blu-ray video contents so these editings will be reflected on the output MP4, which is the one you will watch on Nokia phone.

You can actually discover more useful features during the conversion and again, welcome back Nokia!

Watch Blu-ray/DVD on Brand-New and Amazing Digital Toy - iPhone X

iPhone X, pronounced as iPhone ten, is the latest member in iPhone family and was just announced the debut a few days ago on Sep 12th, 2017 from the Apple Events in its own Steve Jobs Theater.

iPhone X pre-order starts from Oct 27th and official delivery from Nov 03rd. There are tons of new features of this phone, totally new design with face ID, water & dust proof, all screen, wireless charge, etc., but we are mainly talking about the video and audio capabilities today as it will fit our blog theme perfectly.

iPhone X Audio Playback Support

AAC-LC, HE-AAC, HE-AAC v2, Protected AAC, MP3, Linear PCM, Apple Lossless, FLAC, Dolby Digital (AC-3), Dolby Digital Plus (E-AC-3), and Audible (formats 2, 3, 4, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX, and AAX+).

User-configurable maximum volume limit.

iPhone X Video Playback Support

HEVC, H.264, MPEG-4 Part 2, and Motion JPEG

High Dynamic Range with Dolby Vision and HDR10 content

AirPlay Mirroring, photos, and video out to Apple TV (2nd generation or later)

Video mirroring and video out support: Up to 1080p through Lightning Digital AV Adapter and Lightning to VGA Adapter (adapters sold separately)

Basically iPhone X can play whatever already inside the phone due to its powerful video and audio capacity. However, what about the Blu-ray and DVD playback? Can iPhone X handle this as well?

This is a good question: without the direct support of Blu-ray and DVD playback, how to make iPhone X play them? We need some extra help here:

Blu-ray Ripper is able to convert Blu-ray content to those iPhone X supported video formats with zero quality loss while DVD Ripper is able to make DVD content playable on iPhone X, let’s have a closer look below of how to achieve the DVD to iPhone X conversion.

Convert Blu-ray/DVD to iPhone X Supported Video Formats

As Blu-ray/DVD is not iPhone X supported formats, we need to make a conversion first. Choose Blu-ray or DVD Ripper here according to what source file do you have. Here we take Blu-ray Ripper for example.

Import the original Blu-ray file via different options like import from CD-ROM, from folder or from ISO file. Here we added it from an ISO file saved on the local computer.

Set iPhone X as output format. Currently the team is still working to add the iPhone X option in the Profile, before it’s done, you can choose other iPhone models instead(from iPhone 4 to iPhone 7), there won’t be a big difference between them.

Set the saving path for iPhone X format MP4/H.264 and start the conversion officially.

Put Those Converted Blu-ray/DVD back to iPhone X

Transfer those converted Blu-ray/DVD now in MP4/H.264 to your iPhone X from computer via iTunes.

Or if you are not a fan of iTunes, you can upload the videos to third-party streaming service providers like Dropbox, log in with your same account in iPhone X to have it synchronized.

Play Blu-ray/DVD Seamlessly in iPhone X

Now it’s time to enjoy the excellent video playback on iPhone X, with bigger screen, clearer sound and super retina display quality.

Comparison Between Moto G5 Plus and iPhone SE

Lenovo has rolled out five generations of Motorola G family so far.  The newest handset of Moto G series is Moto G5 Plus. Announced on February 26th and availble in March 2017, the Moto G5 Plus features a 12 MP camera with Dual Autofocus Pixels and TurboPower battery charging. Apple Inc's iPhone SE is much like Moto G5 Plus. Here in this post, I am to compare the features and specifications of the new Moto G5 Plus and iPhone SE.


There are many phones bigger than the Moto G5 Plus, but it towers over the teensy iPhone SE. The G5 comes out 21-percent taller and 25-percent wider. Keep in mind the Moto's depth measurement is only counting the thickest point of its rounded back.


 The iPhone SE is 27-percent lighter than Moto G5 Plus.


 The Moto G series has always cut the bill of materials by using all plastic, but this year it adds some metal to the mix.


You have two colors to choose from for the Moto, next to the iPhone's four.

Water resistance

 Motorola lists some light splash resistance for the G5 Plus, but neither has an IP rating.

Display size

 The Moto G5 Plus' screen is 69-percent bigger.

Display Resolution

 The iPhone SE has the same pixel density as today's 4.7-in iPhones, but it lacks the improved contrast and color gamut that you can see on the iPhone 7.

 Display type

Both manufacturers use IPS display panels.

Pressure-sensitive display

 The lower-end iPhone SE lacks the 3D Touch (press deeper on the screen for shortcuts) found in the iPhone 6s and newer.


 The iPhone SE has the same A9 chip found in Apple's late-2015 flagships (iPhone 6s and Plus), and it should still be at least a little faster than the Moto's mid-ranged Snapdragon 625 processor.


 Moto G5 Plus offers two kinds of RAM storage 2GB and 4GB while only one kind of RAM storage is available for iPhone SE.


The US model of the Moto G5 Plus will double the entry-level storage of the iPhone SE. (Some regions will see 16 GB and 32 GB options for the Moto.)


 No matter which storage configuration you get, though, the Moto G5 Plus lets you augment its internal storage with a microSD card.


 The Moto G5 Plus has a much bigger (higher-capacity) battery, though that won't necessarily translate into longer uptimes.

Fast charging

 No matter what its battery life looks like, the Moto G5 Plus gives you quick-charging tech.

Camera megapixels

 The only aberration in this visual is the iPhone's low-res front-facing camera.


 Neither phone's rear camera has Optical Image Stabilization.

Mobile payments

Apple compromised in some areas for the iPhone SE, but it included NFC so it can support Apple Pay. With no NFC, you can't use Android Pay on the Moto.

 Fingerprint sensor

Both have front-facing fingerprint sensors.


 It's Android Nougat (mostly stock) vs. iOS 10.


 The Moto G5 Plus releases this month, while the iPhone SE has been around for a year. It isn't yet clear whether Apple is planning on updating the SE for 2017, but we may know before long.

Starting price (full retail)

 The Moto G5 Plus can save you US$170. While some customers may find that premium worth paying to get the iOS operating system and Apple's hardware-software symmetry in a small and somewhat-inexpensive package, others may prefer the Moto's bigger screen and capable all-around spec sheet.

Take an In-Depth Look at iPhone 8 Specifications

Apple is estimated to release the next generation of iPhone in Fall of this year. The year of 2017 marks the tenth anniversary for Apple Inc. Back in 2007, Apple rolled out its first generation of iPhone. Until now, Apple has offered many iPhone models, iPad models, and iPod models. The latest iPhone models available on the market are iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, featuring a 4.7 inch and a 5.5-inch screen respectively. Three new iPhone models are projected to be launched on September, 2017, including a long-awaited iPhone 8 designing with the removal of Home button, the other two being iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.
Although there are many leaks and rumors circulating about Apple's iPhone 8 flagship and the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, the information is unconfirmed. Here we get some sources from a market research firm TrendForce that issued a new research note based on supply chain information that dives deep into the hardware and design of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7s models.

According to TrendForce, the iPhone 8 will be the first iPhone to be equipped with an AMOLED screen. The home button will be removed for larger screen, and the button's features will be integrated into the display. Having the same size as 4.7-inch iPhone 7, iPhone 8 will have a 5.8 inch screen as the result of Home button removal. The OLED display will have 2K resolution and a display ratio that could exceed 2:1. TrendForce says the iPhone 8 display will not feature curved edges, as "there are issues with the 3D glass regarding production yield and drop test results." The iPhone 8 is expected to have 2.5D glass on the front, just like current models. The iPhone 8 will also pack 3D sensing technology that can be used for facial recognition and augmented reality (AR) features.

The iPhone 8 will supposedly pack 3GB of RAM and come with just two storage options, 64GB and 256GB. Pricing for the iPhone 8 could go up to $1,000, or even higher, according to a report published by TrendForce, which is in line with earlier pricing rumors.

The iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will have the same 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens you'd expect, just like their predecessor. They will feature 2GB and 3GB of RAM, respectively, and ship with the same storage options we have now on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.

The iPhone 7s might be even cheaper than the current iPhone 7, as Apple will "likely make significant differentiation between the 4.7-inch model and the other two models" due to increased competition in the smartphone business, according to the firm.

TrendForce estimates that the iPhone 8 will drive "a huge wave of replacement demand," as existing iPhone users who have not upgraded since 2014 might be attracted to the "significant innovations" in the upcoming new iPhone.  iPhone users who would like to purchase new iPhone are suggested to back up data on old iPhone with an iOS transfer program.
