iPhone 4 Diamond Rose

iphone 4 diamond rose

Want to own a phone that leaves everyone gasping for breath? It has to be the iPhone 4 Diamond Rose! This handset is designed by Stuart Hughes, who is known to design the most exquisite and expensive iPhones.

Design

The iPhone 4 Diamond Rose has a rose pink metal rear and sides that are encrusted with diamonds. There are three rows of diamonds on the rim and the rear side is basically made of platinum. The diamonds provide the necessary bling to make the handset look truly feminine. There are 500 diamonds on this handset. And there’s no other phone more beautiful than this. It is in fact one of the best creations of Stuart Hughes.

The blings do not end at the rim, rear, and sides as there are 53 diamonds that are encrusted on the Apple logo as well. The number of diamonds makes me wonder if they were purchased via the diamonds USA coupon. 🙂

Frontal features

The only button that is present under the screen of the handset is the navigation button which is a pink diamond in a platinum rim. The pink diamond is surrounded by a circle of diamonds.

Price

This iPhone 4 version is available at a whopping price of $8 million. The price makes it just a dream for everyone save for a few of the elite class. Well, that is what most of the creations of Stuart Hughes are all about anyway.

I was wondering what a great idea it would have been if the handset had a discount code like a Diamonds USA coupon so that the price would at least decrease a bit. But that is just wishful thinking. 🙂

Purity of the diamonds

The diamonds used for encrusting the handset are priceless. Each of the 500 diamonds embedded on the rim are 100 carats. Same is the case of the 53 diamonds present on the Apple logo at the rear. Finally, the pink diamond on the navigation button is a 7.4 carat pink diamond.

What makes the iPhone 4 Diamond Rose more exciting is that there are only 2 handsets available worldwide. I wonder if they have already been purchased and who bought them? 🙂

iPhone 2013 Rumors: iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, and More

iphone 2013 rumors

The tech world online had been clamoring about the possible release of the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c as well as other new iPhone devices. But just how much do we know about these phones? Several sources attempted to showcase the features of yet to be announced iPhone gadgets and we’ve summed them all up.

iPhone 5s

Although there is no specific date yet, the iPhone 5s may be launched at the last quarter of 2013 in the same manner that most previous iPhones were released around the same time. Some also note that it may be pitted against the third generation of Samsung Note tablets which will be made public on the IFA 2013.

As for features, varying sources point out the following:

  • 4.8 inch display
  • Retina+ Sharp IGZO display with 1080p full HD resolution
  • screen resolution of 1.5 million pixel (twice the current iPhone 5)
  • 8MP or 13MP iSight camera
  • dual LED flash
  • 2GB of RAM
  • dual core or quad core GPU
  • faster CPU – the A6x (similar with the latest iPad) or may introduce the iOS7 with an  A7 chip
  • 128GB storage capacity
  • bigger battery
  • touch on display panel with 10 point multi-touch and 0.5 mm thickness (from China Times based on Apple supplier Innolux, a Taiwanese company)
  • 4G global LTE support
  • NFC technology with possible finger print enabled financial transactions (PayPal’s Michael Barrett dropped a hint about multiple phones possibly having this technology later this year in a keynote speech recently)
  • black and white with the addition of champagne gold color (based on rumors from the Japanese website ASCII)

See featured image above for iPhone 5s colors.

iPhone 6

Who knows if the supposedly iPhone 5s will be no less than the iPhone 6? We’ve witnessed the unpredictable mood of Apple when it released the iPhone 4s instead of a rumored iPhone 5 before. But most agree that a completely different iPhone 6 may be coming to the market by 2014.

iPhone Math

Mark June 2014 on your calendar; it is supposedly the release date for the iPhone Math. This model will jump start the beginning of a new breed of iPhones which are larger and cheaper. I assume these will compete with similar phones/tabs in the market today.

iPhone 5c

In relation to cheaper, the iPhone 5c is a more affordable iPhone 5. It’s still an iPhone and Apple manufactured so literally, it’s just cheaper but not necessarily very cheap. Just around the $300 benchmark.

However, with lesser prices comes less amazing specifications including a smaller than 4 inch display, a lower resolution, and possibly plastic instead of aluminum casing. The camera may be between 5MP and 8MP. It will be available in similar colors as the iPod models.

Conclusion

Among all four rumored Apple devices, it’s the iPhone 5s you may have to watch out for this September or October.

However, I can still remember how many had anticipated the iPhone 5 prior to its release last year and yet ended up with the iPhone 4s instead. There is always a possibility that all the brouhaha over this technically non-existing device may end up in a major disappointment. We are soon to find out.

Candy Crash Cheats

candy crush cheats

Everyone’s going loco over Candy Crash, a phenomenal game app as popular as the likes of Plants and Zombies, Angry Birds, and Temple Run. Although it appears to be a simple pairing game where you just mix and match the same candy variety to earn points and accomplish goals, the game actually becomes more challenging as you progress towards each level. You’re lives are also limited that once all of it are used up, you will have to wait for 24 hours before you can play again.

What a bummer, most especially if you are glued at one level and needs to continue playing to move on towards the next and you can’t wait for an entire day just to play again. So what do you do? How far can you go for another try? Will you resort to utilizing Candy Crash cheats? I know I did. 😉

Types of Cheats

The most common cheat is advancing the time at the device used (phone or tablet) to make it look like it’s been 24 hours past since you’ve lost. There are also more complicated cheats which include downloadable software (often applicable only for computers) that can alter the game’s features. You can multiply the number of attempts allowed for a single game to increase your chances of accomplishing the goal. This will also automatically boost your overall score since you have more moves than usual.

Such cheats make me sometimes think that players with abnormally high scores and have passed seemingly impossible level tasks are cheating. But I know I did use such software at some point when playing the game through Facebook. 😉

Game Guides

Maybe not everyone with outstanding scores and uber high levels have cheated. Maybe they have read game guides such as this – Candy Crush Levels Help Guide.

Purchase Lives or Upgrades

If you’re not a fan of applying tricks like the above, you can always buy lives or purchase upgrades. You will need a credit card for this purpose though. And although I admittedly said that I’ve cheated on several occasions, I did make purchases a couple of times. I’ve also availed of several special offers such as inexpensive Facebook credits.

But not all are willing to shell out money (in USD at that) for a game. Others may not have a credit card to use (although a debit card also serves the purpose). Hence, cheats are a Candy Crush gamer’s friend.

So how about you, will you go as far as using Candy Crush cheats to play?
