People like to stay up to date when it comes to gadgets be it mobile phones or their laptop or be it any gadget. Take the case of iPhone you have a new one every year. What is the worth for your old one. Gadgets age fast indeed very fast, it’s even worse for computers, whose age is even lesser. You bought one with the best processor available, huge memory and everything available on board but this configuration might not be the best just even after a month. Which leaves gadget fancy people with no option but to upgrade.

This being the case, one can’t help but wonder: What to do with all the electronic clutter? Thankfully, the answer is both simple and good for your household budget. If the product is in good shape, then you could sell it at the online marketplaces. Sure, you can always sell a damaged or partly broken phone, but, obviously, you will not get so many offers than when you will offer it for sale in a good condition.

There are many websites who purchase second hand computers and laptops, used cell phones, Apple iPods, iPhones, PDAs, smartphones, MP3 players, old software with valid serial numbers, and video game consoles and even the quotes are instant.

Then there are websites who won’t buy your gear outright, but here you can list your gadget or item, set up a price and people can bid upon it or buy it directly. These websites have a cut in the deal done.

Always remember – every penny saved will take you a step closer to a purchase of that amazing new high-tech upgrade.

Samsung Aims at Full-Day Battery for Phones

by on Jan.19, 2012, under Mobile

Halfway through the work day, you see your smartphones battery running into the red zone and you find yourself desperately looking for a charging port.

Android's Battery

While the phones are getting more feature packed with huge processors and big camera’s the thing getting ignored is the battery. All these features pull out a lot of power which eventually hampers the overall battery performance.

Samsung Electronics hopes to eliminate the battery issue. The company has set a goal that smartphones coming out this year can last all day under average to moderately heavy use, according to Kevin Packingham, vice president of product innovation at Samsung.

“When you wake up to when you go to bed, we don’t want you feeling anxiety about your battery life,” he said in an interview at CES.

The company is working at optimizing different aspects of the phone, such as searches for Wi-Fi or powering up the 4G LTE radio. The Charge, Samsung’s first LTE phone for Verizon Wireless, was a good test bed for the company, but the company can do better. Samsung wasn’t quite there yet in terms of power efficiency, said Packingham.

So with this, we hope Samsung bringing out huge smartphones with greater battery life.
