Solution to Lacking Storage Space in iCoud

iCloud, a free cloud service operated by Apple Inc, can provide information and data sharing and synchronization for iPhone, iPad and Mac. For example, our daily use iPhone is able to automatically sync data including contacts, memos, web bookmarks, and photos to iCloud via opening iCloud service with Apple ID logged in. If you launch iCloud with the same Apple ID on other devices, your information will be synchronized into other devices so as to realize files sharing. After using the device for a longtime, the data in your cellphone like photos and backup for apps will be more and more, possibly causing lack of backup storage space. Let’s take iPhone as an example to show you how to solve this problem.

Here are the steps to follow:
1. When you are charging your iPhone which has been connected to Wi-Fi and is with iCould service launched, actually your data will be automatically uploaded by your device. In this case, when iCloud is short of storage space, the system will remind you via the pop-up below. You can click "Close" to ingore it, or "Settings" to operate.

2.Click "Settings" on home screen.

3.Then you will find "iCloud" option in the setting list. Enter it.

4.After access to iCloud, look at the bottom of the list, find and click "Storage & Backup".

5.Now you can see the total and availabe storage of your iCloud, click "Manage Storage".

6.On the following interface, you can see how many devices this same iCloud account has been logged in. The picture below shows that my account has been used on two devices. The content from "ducument & data" are common data saved on both devices. You can see that my iPhone occupies most in iCloud savedup files, so enter it.

7.Next, you will see the detailed files on iCloud and find that camera roll takes up most. By turning it off you will stop and delete the backup.
Note: The photos on your mobile will not be affected even if you turn off camera roll.

8.This time the system will ask us to confirm whether to turn off and delete, click it.

9.By the way, if you do not want to back up all files in iCloud, click "Delete Backup" button on the bottom, which helps to remove all in iCloud savedup documents.

10.After cancelling unnecessary information from backup, return to "Storage & Backup", now you will discover that your available storage is enlarged.

Sony Xperia Z3v Stands out with Camera and Battery

Sony Xperia Z Series has been well acclaimed since its release. However, it has never been on sale in the USA. Last month at the IFA Conference, Sony declared that it would launch Z3v--the variant on Z3 in America in collaboration with Verizon Wireless. Now let’s get the first glimpse of Z3v.

Display: 5.2-inch (1920 x 1080 resolution)
Processor: 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor
GPU: Adreno 330
Memory: 3GB
Internal storage: 16GB (expandable via microSD card to 128GB)
Cameras: 20.7-megapixel rear camera with LED flash (superior to Z3)
Battery: 3200 MAh (lager than Z3)
Waterproofing: IP68 (compared to IP55/IP58 of Z3)
Wireless charging: Qi (a new and attractive feature)

Although Z3v is thin and light as ever, it still varies from the European version. It adds a metal strip around the edges of the plastic body instead of being completely encompassed. In addition, both the front and the back sides are made of glass and the round Power Button is on the right side of the body. What’s more, Sony announces that Z3v will be the most powerful waterproof phone among their products owing to its IP68 waterproof capacity.


Z3v has a 5.2-inch display with 1080P. It supports Triluminous and X-reality, both of which can automatically and intelligently adjust the brightness and contrast. Therefore, the display effect is quite salient.


It is universally known that Sony produces the top camera of smartphones, and even the camera of iPhone is provided by Sony. Z3v is equipped with Stacking G lens with 20.7 million pixels and Bionz image processing engine. Like most flagship smartphones, Z3v allows shooting 4K resolution videos.

Several camera applications are added in Z3v, like Face In, an app allows users to take photos simultaneously with both front and rear cameras, Live on YouTube, which enables a 15-minute live broadcast on YouTube, and a built-in app which pieces photos taken at the same time from various views together.

Although music applications have largely replaced the digital music sales, Sony still plays an important role in music. Z3v supports high-quality music player, digital noise reduction features. Meanwhile, DSEE HX technology can enhance the effect of users’ low-quality MP3 and ACC music files. Sony says that Z3v has the best sound among all the smartphones in its company.

Supporting PS4 Remote Play
Sony PS4 has achieved great success since its launch last year, and the current sales volume has reached 10 million. Sony hopes that its success in the gaming field can help to promote the development of mobile devices, for which the company launched PS4 Remote Play service. Users can use this service via Wi-Fi network to continue playing previously suspensive game on the PS4. In addition to Z3v, both PS TV and PS Vita also support the service.

Price and Date for Debut
Xperia Z3v, the exclusive product of Verizon Wireless, is scheduled to put on sale on October 23, and its price for contract version is 199 US dollars.

Although the powerful camera, great battery capacity, slim body and marvelous waterproof feature have made Xperia Z3v attract tremendous attention, only by more depth tests can we figure out its real performance. Regrettably, in order to realize wireless charging, the body of Z3v is made of plastic, making its texture slightly inferior to Z3.

Samsung Note 4 Overwhelms iPhone 6 in S Pen and Display

Recently Samsung has published two ads to state why users should choose Galaxy Note 4 Tablet by showing us facts and reasons.
Suppose you believe that Galaxy Note 4 is superior to iPhone 6 Plus, so how will you express your own ideas to us? Will you deliver it in a mocking way like what Samsung used to do to iSheeps( who are fascinated with iOS products), or in a mild way?
Samsung chose the latter in its new ads. In one ad which lacks distinction and even did not joke about iPhone 6 Plus, it mentions the screen of Galaxy Note 4 isn't just a display, but the access to prolific world. And in another ad, Samsung declares that the S Pen of Galaxy Note 4 is not just a pen, it is like a lightsaber, a pair of scissors, and even a glue stick.

The brand image of Samsung in the USA is affected differently owing to its different ad styles. Some of the Samsung ads are really remarkable while the others are so ordinary. And there is no doubt that these two latest ads are the latter. Therefore, in the future, it is possible that Samsung might release ads which will be more persuasive so as to show the advantages of its new products.
