iPhone 5se or iPhone SE?

January reports suggest that a new 4 inch screen iPhone will be release at the early quarter of 2016. It was rumored to be in line with the iPhone 5 series and was dubbed the "iPhone 5se". It was supposed to be called "se" for "special edition".

But latest news suggest that it might not be a "iPhone 5se" after all. There were reports that Apple will be dropping the 5 instead and call the new 4 inch phone "iPhone SE" instead, if the rumors are true.

This may come as a surprise because we have gotten used to Apple naming their flagships with a number. We really don't know if the next series of this new line will be called iPhone SEs, or iPhone SE2, so on and so forth. It's just a rumor for now so it's not final. We just need to keep our eyes and ears open for more possibilities.

How to recover a corrupted or unreadable SD card error

This can happen to anyone. You have all your files saved on an sd card, and you just didn't pay attention as to whats going to happen.Then suddenly, your sd card won't work anymore and you frantically jump up and down for help. You felt that you want to cry for blaming yourself on not having a backup copy of your files.

Well that won't do you any good. Problem is there are several reasons as to why that SD card is unreadable or corrupt. If it shows an error that the SD card is "unreadable or corrupted" when you insert it on your computer then go ahead and continue reading. If it says "format sd card etc" then that's another problem.

Lets focus first on this error "corrupted or unreadabe". This shows up at the instant you place your sd card on your computer. Just let it be for the moment.

Here it comes: Samsung Galaxy S7

It came with no surprise after a few months of being leaked that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be released on the first quarter of 2016. There were a few leaks here and there about the external design, including the specs on this phone. Now, the long wait is finally over! Samsung, the Korean giant has announced it on Feb 21 that the phone would be released on March 11. The news became a huge buzz among techies around the world. Samsung galaxy S7 series will come in two variants, the S7 Edge and the normal one.

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
We really didn't have any clue as to where the specs that were rumored are precise, but we crossed our fingers that it will have an SD card and a removable battery. Since it will be the most recent flagship phone from Samsung, we expect it to make a huge impact over other Samsung devices. We also expect it to have a little more kick on it.

Oh how we miss the SD card expansion slot and the removable battery. SD cards are great since it provides additional option to increase the phone's storage capacity. Having a 16-32gb storage doesn't mean a lot nowadays if you're a heavy file user.

Again the battery. Most flagship phones from other companies adopted the trend of non-removable batteries. Some say that non-removable batteries are a lot better since they're intact on the phone and losses less power than removable once. But practically, its really nice to have a removable one since its just so easy to swap in case your phone runs out of battery, rather than finding an outlet to charge the phone in case you miss bringing a power bank

Yes, that's right.

Smart money card is a service of SMART , one of the country's largest wireless service provider's network .

It's still the same as using an eon card but totally different from the BPI withdrawal method (since its a bank account that has no CVV at the back of the card). The good thing about using the Smart Money card also doubles it is another way to verify your PayPal account, like the eon. And that's pretty neat, because it serves a double purpose.
