We see all manner of video clips whereby some of our favorite gadgets are destroyed or otherwise irreparably harmed. Sometimes, there’s a practical reason for the destructive behavior, such as to test the robustness of a particular product in a given situation. However, it’s frequently the case that these coveted devices are trashed purely for entertainment, and the perverse pleasure of the on-looking tech world. Case in point, a new video demonstrating what happened when an iPhone 5s was run over by a train. Yes, you read that right – a train. Below, you can catch the video, and we’re pretty sure that you won’t want to miss this one.

Even though Apple’s iPhone remains the subject of acclaim for its high-end, premium finish, the same cannot quite be said when it comes to durability, with scratches, scrapes, cracks and dents commonplace among the iPhone-rocking faithful, and as such, the market for protective cases and shields is very lucrative indeed. Logitech, an official distributor of third-party Apple accessories and peripherals, has just come through with a cheap, robust solution for iPhone users looking to keep their handset guarded at all times, and notably, doesn’t go overboard with regards to adding bulk.

The Apple iPhone regularly scores high when it comes to customer satisfaction, quality of camera, and in fact, most other smartphone-centric research.

Although Apple and Samsung regularly drag one another through the slog of the courtroom in quibbles over patents and whatnot, these two keenest of rivals also like to take digs at each other through advertising. Whether a new product is being released or has been around for several months, both Apple and Samsung like to point out the flaws of their adversary’s product lines, and now, the Korean Galaxy maker has taken a pop at the iPhone’s battery life.

You may have already heard of gold iPhones being sold for silly money to anyone daft enough to buy them, but the ‘Caviar iPhone 5s Supremo Putin’ takes things one step further by engraving Russian premier Vladimir Putin’s bonce on the back of it. In fact, just to make sure you get your patriotism badge – assuming you’re Russian, that is – the phone even has the first two lines of the country’s national anthem as well as its coat of arms engraved for good measure. Well, if something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right, after all.

With Apple widely expected to unveil a new iPhone line-up in the coming months, it’s somewhat inevitable that the price-drops on the current-gen models will ensue, and Walmart has kicked things off by offering the flagship iPhone 5s (16GB) for a cut-price $99. The price, which takes into consideration the signing of a two-year contract, is the cheapest you’ll find at this moment in time for a subsidized iPhone 5s, and with the iPhone 5c also dropping to $29 on a 24-month package, both of Apple’s most recent handsets can be snapped up at a discounted rate.

At a typically enthusiastic event yesterday, T-Mobile’s enigmatic CEO and President John Legere announced that the company would be launching a new initiative that it hopes would remove the awful feeling of buyer’s remorse – a well known problem in the gadget-buying world where we regret picking up that shiny new toy for whatever reason.

A short while ago, we brought to you a video highlighting a bunch of reasons why Apple’s iPhone 5s is perceivably better than the Galaxy S5.

Apple’s annual WWDC event is only a matter of days away, and as developers and journalists descend on The Moscone Centre in San Francisco the anticipation of what Tim Cook and his executive will introduce is starting to grow exponentially. If this particular analyst’s predictions ring true then a cheaper iMac as well as an iPhone 5s with 8GB of internal storage could make an appearance during the conference.

With the iPhone 6 just around the corner – well, almost – people could be forgiven for forgetting that the current iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are still very much available to buy. Even though the pair are now coming up on their one year anniversary, the iPhone 5s in particular can still hold its own in the current smartphone market, and if you can’t wait for its successor you could do much worse than pick one up. If you’ve got an old iPhone to trade in too, now’s the time to get yourself down to an Apple Store.

Being the huge tech fans that we are, we’re more than just a little excited about the OnePlus One smartphone. Combining the tried-and-tested formula of high-end specs and low price, the CM-running device is sure to be a hit when it makes it to market. Speaking of market, Oppo’s spin-off company decided to promote its handset using the fairly common tactic of encouraging would-be early adopters to film themselves smashing up their iPhones. Some refused, while others played ball, and the winners, as you’ll see in the clip below, went above and beyond the call of duty.

Samsung’s Apple-bashing ways are well documented throughout the tech community, with the Cupertino company all too happy to put forth its own slanderous marketing campaigns in order to belittle its fiercest competitor. But in its latest spate of Galaxy S5 ads, Sammy has shown that it can explain where and how its flagship is better than that of its rival’s without getting into the school playground-esque fare that many have grown tired of.

Scratching around for the most suitable case is part and parcel of being a smartphone user, but while companies have established great reputations by delivering high quality, practical and protective guards for our digital devices in their daily battle against the elements, it doesn’t always have to be that serious. A new gaming-themed case for iPhone owners is a great example of what can happen when imaginations run wild, and the iDroid concept, based on a feature of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, looks a real treat for any MGS fan.

We’ve had some pretty decent insight into iOS 8 of late, and with this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2014) kicking off in early June, it has also been reported that internal testing is being ramped up in anticipation for the beta roll-out. Now, images of an iPhone 5s supposedly running the forthcoming software have leaked into the wild, and although there’s no way of telling whether or not we’re looking at the real deal or a nifty bit of fakery, the pixelated nature of the snaps suggest the latter.

The Galaxy S5, which Samsung announced all the way back in February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, is finally upon us, and while many early adopters will be flocking to stores today in order to pick up their very own unit, many consumers remain undecided. Those in search of a high-end handset will likely be weighing their prospective Galaxy S5 purchase up against other devices on the market, such as Apple’s iPhone 5s, and to help ease the decision-making process, a new, real-world speed test has emerged that pits Samsung’s latest and greatest up against the coveted iPhone 5s.

It’s fair to say that the mobile industry gets a little bit carried away with raw specs than is actually necessary. After all, the fact that vendors keep chucking in new, improved processors of multiple cores doesn’t necessarily equate to significantly better performance, particularly if the software isn’t optimized to make the most of the power at its disposal.
