New iPhone 5? Don’t mind if I do!

posted by Evelina

Apple revealed the two new models of iPhone 5 on 10th September, the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5S.

 

The new iPhone has become more colourful with the introduction of new, attractive casing for both models.

The iPhone 5S is the new top of the range phone from Apple with improved 8 megapixel camera featuring a 64 bit chip that is twice as fast as the previous version of iPhone 5 plus better resolution in low light settings. It also features Touch ID fingerprint scanning for stronger identification and bypass typing a 4 digit code to access the phone. It retails at £549 for 16GB and goes all the way up to £709 for 64GB. The iPhone 5S is all about the bling as it comes in  gold, silver and grey. <!–more–>

 

The iPhone 5c is a low-cost version of the iPhone 5 and prices start at £469 for 16GB (£549 for 32GB). It looks like an iPod Touch and comes in five bright colours: green, yellow, blue, red and white. It features an 8 megapixel camera with improved HD FaceTime. The battery life is 10 hours talk time, like the iPhone 5S. This model is slightly heavier than the previous iPhone 5 but has the same connectivity specification supporting Wifi and Bluetooth.

This new version of the iPhone 5 is expected to be very popular thanks to its colourful and playful casing resembling the iPod Touch.

You can get the iPhone on MadBid at a fraction of the retail price, just keep an eye on our current auctions and on our social media sites. We will make the new iPhone available in MadBid auctions soon so watch this space!

Mad Month of Bundles

posted by Evelina

It’s that time of the month where we bring you a round-up of some of the MadBid auctions that have been in the spotlight. With auction timers being dropped and 10 auctions going live all at once it has truly been madness in the auctions this month. We’ve also brought in bundles to kick off the summer season that included all your summer essentials but it seems the demand really showed in the favourite products like iPads, iPhones, game consoles and camera devices. We’ve also had credit bundles and laptop bundles but the most popular of them all was the classic Apple bundle.

MadBid Review: Samsung Galaxy S4

posted by Evelina

 

 

The anticipated new Samsung S4 is here! We are however finding it a bit difficult to distinguish the new from the old. It seems Samsung has gone down the Apple route and vaguely changed the design which is still quite bulky but much easier to use while on the go.

Internet

Putting the anti-climactic exterior aside, we look within. The new Samsung is 4G ready which is great because the screen resolution is amazing so the last thing you want is slow internet. Also, If you are planning to buy it off the shelf it will cost £399, which is cheaper than an iPhone5 that is still not 4G ready in the UK so you will be getting a bargain there.

If you like the speed of your internet on your old S3 then maybe a few of these little new features will convince you to upgrade.

Features

No Buttons Required. That’s right, this clever little feature senses when you are not looking at the screen and pauses a video or game or just an article you’ve been reading. Also to flip from page to page simply tilt the device. Handy right? There is more. If you love to travel, this will be the handset for you. The S-Translator will translate both text and voice so you can relax and not worry about getting lost when abroad.

Verdict

If you need a new phone we think this would be a worthy investment as it definitely has unique little elements that will make your life easier. If like us you don’t think this is different enough from the old model and don’t really have £399 lying around, we are auctioning them at MadBid now.
