Telstra Prepaid Cap Encore Review
Having invested in a Samsung S4 4G smartphone, I thought it was time to review what the 4G experience was like. My intention is to test both Telstra and Optus 4G side by side.I decided to purchase my Telstra sim from a Woolworths retail store. My ID was checked as usual and the whole experience was quite easy Telstra prepaid 4G usage chartreally.Activating the sim card was a little harder however. This is the second sim I have activated with Telstra this year and the second time I have had to use the chat service to complete the activation.
As I already have a prepaid mobile broadband sim card with Telstra for my iPad, I decided to activate under this account. Because I had logged into my account there did not seem to be any ID requirement. The activation request was sent almost instantly. The problem however was that almost as instantly, I received an email from Telstra advising that there would be delays in my activation. I waited 24 hours and nothing.I jumped online via the chat service and the young lady activated my sim pretty quickly. My ID was requested. Not sure why my activation was lost (no explanation was given).
Once the activation came through, I inserted the sim in my phone and all was ready. Lucky for me my home (eastern suburbs of Melbourne) had 4G access and this appeared on my phone.Coverage: Given 4G is still limited to Metro and inner city regions (see map) 4G across will cross over to 3G when it needs to. I experienced this in the train on the way to work in the morning. Now you see it now you don’t.Speed Test – Telstra 4G Coverage
The difference between 3G and 4G speeds is significant. As an example, using my Optus 3G sim in my Samsung S4 can achieve a ping of 46ms, download speed of 4.70Mbps and 1.16Mbps upload. Using the 4G Telstra sim, I reached close to 20Mbps download and 3.5Mbps upload (3 – 4 x better). However, the results do bounce around from test to test, but the differences even at the lower levels are significant.
Apple iPhone 6 Plus Review
Apple last month released the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone 6 Plus is that something totally different.. It is also larger, thinner, most importantly offers far more endurance. The market has been waiting for the iPhone 6 for almost 2 years now. Finally Apple has a real play at the phablet market. After the revolution that was the iPhone 4, the iPhone brought colour but not much else. The world waited for that something different from Apple.
The iPhone 6 Plus is a 5.5-inch phablet. It measures 6.22 inches high by 3.06 inches wide (158.1mm by 77.8mm), nearly a half-inch (12mm) taller than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, though slightly narrower. At 6.07 ounces (172 grams) it does come in just a touch lighter, and it’s noticeably thinner — just 7.1mm in thickness.
The new rounded shape comes complete with glass that blends into the rounded edges. The home button sits front and centre below the display. It carries Touch ID so you can unlock the iPhone 6 Plus quickly with a thumb.
Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus feature revised cameras front and rear, but the Plus offers even more upgrades. The rear shooter here is 8 megapixels as on the iPhone 6, but the Plus adds optical image stabilisation to the mix.
There’s also new video stabilisation on the 6 and 6 Plus as well, and though it’s a digital effect, the results are still quite impressive. Video is still 1080p, though now captured at 60 frames per second if you want it. The front-facing camera has been updated as well.
Both iPhone 6 models offer the new A8 processor. Benchmarks show the 6 range performs 10 to 20 percent faster than on the iPhone 5.
One place you will certainly notice a huge difference between the 6 Plus and the iPhone 5S, and indeed the iPhone 6, is battery life. The iPhone 6 Plus can achieve a solid 13 hours of standby time. It backed that up with impressive real-world performance, easily and repeatedly making it through a full day of heavy use (constant Web surfing, gaming, video streaming, and GPS navigation), often lasting well into a second day before needing a charge. Sadly, charging still requires that you fish out a Lightning cable.
In terms of iPhone 6 apps, there is not much out there at the moment and the ones that have been optimised are showing some blurring. This problem will be reduced as more third-party apps are optimised for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
Whilst it isn’t for everyone, more importantly all Apple fans, the iPhone 6 Plus and its size is a winner but also a draw back. If it is a winner for you, you will also enjoy the improved battery life and camera. The extra A$130 for this phone will most likely be worth it.
The iPhone 6 Plus although sports a new design for Apple, it isn’t that much different to others in the phablet family. It also isn’t the most feature packed phone on the market. It is a big step forward in the world of Apple mobile devices.
