No matter what happens. No matter how prepared you are. No matter how awesome the battery life is on your phone. You will experience a low to no battery emergency with your smartphone at some point. Until scientists figure out some kind of dark magic to allow for always-on, never-need-recharging batteries, smartphone users are going to need something to top off with. There are a myriad amount of battery chargers, packs and cases that cater to just about every device on the market. And while we’re more or less “done” with minor advancements and small innovations here and there, holding…

The LG G4 is LG’s latest and greatest. Besides the Snapdragon 808 CPU being technically “second” place, everything else about it is gunning for the top. But despite this, LG may not be letting it hold the crown for long. Word on the street according to an LG official (by way of Focus Taiwan is that sometime in the second half of 2015, LG will release a new, top top device that will be larger, more powerful and most importantly, (likely) go toe-to-toe with Samsung’s next-gen Note. LG has toyed with the Note’s territory before, most recently with the G…

Android users not feeling any love from Instagram after they released “Layouts” (collage app for Instagram) for iOS a month or so back can finally be put the pitch forks down. Today, Instagram launched not only the Android version of Layouts, but a new tool within the Instagram app called “Structure” that will help bring out details and textures in photos. For now, Structure is actually an Android-only feature, so, there’s one for the Android team to keep track of. That said, don’t look for it to stay that way for long. Interested filter junkies and collage creators can hit…

One of our most used items on our desk happened to be an old Lightning dock back from a few years ago when Apple still sold one. Since then, 3rd parties have stepped in to fill the void Apple had confusingly left. As of today, though, Apple is back in the game with a new Lightning Dock. If you remember the old one, you’ll notice the new one isn’t all that different. The only real change is the scallop for the phone to sit in has been removed, with the Lightning connector now being raised above the flat platform of…

Roughly a month ago Apple unveiled their new, tiny 12-inch Macbook as well as refreshed their 13-inch MacBook Pros. Lovers of larger screens, however, were left with nothing new to lust after. Fast forward to today and it seems Apple is finally moving through more of their lineup with updates, specifically, for the 15-inch Retina Macbook Pro and iMac. For the hardware (and Mac) guys out there, you’ll recall over the course of Apple’s history that they tend to not favor one GPU platform over another. Whatever happens to be the better (whether power or efficiency – it varies) ends…

There’s always something to talk about regarding the most recent iPhone (or rumors of the next-gen one). On the Android side, there’s a steady flow of new hardware to keep us busy, too. Companies like Apple, HTC, Sony, LG and Samsung routinely steal the limelight, leaving everyone else to pick up any the scraps of attention left over. But ASUS will certainly give it there all. Several weeks back the company unveiled their new Zenfone 2, a second-gen Android device that for all intents and purposes looks nice on the outside and has pretty decent specs internally speaking. But for…

If you just happened to be a hopeful Galaxy S6 buyer but weren’t quite content with the (admittedly) bland set of colors (White Pearl, Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum ), Samsung has two new options for you: Blue Topaz and Green Emerald. Via press release, Samsung announced the new color choices as well as a a good chunk of verbiage, categorizing the type of person(s) that would gravitate towards the new color options. But all you need to know is that they are now available. Well, they will be available as soon as your carrier of choice decides to release…

We know Google has kept itself busy with slowly updating all their apps (including iOS ones) to fit their new material design language. But even though they already gave their iOS YouTube app a material design layout, Google apparently wasn’t very happy with it. Google has started rolling out a completely redesigned YouTube app for iOS, to a selected amount of users. And we here at Bit Bit Byte were fortunate enough to had the chance to give it an exclusive first look. In this article I will give you a quick look around the brand new design of the…

If you’re tired about hearing about the G4…sorry. Well, maybe not. It’s an awesome phone and one we’ve been waiting for for quite some time. That said, while we’ve been playing with one in house as well as watched several U.S. carriers announce coming availability, we’ve yet to see anyone really commit to a firm date. That changes today. T-Mobile’s @G4Preview account has “confirmed” via Twitter that June 2nd is the date in which interested customers current and new can pick up the LG G4. The jury is still out on what official pricing will be both on contract as…
