September 17, 2013

๐ŸŽ iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C contain New Technologies. The iPhone 5S’s new Camera, Lens and Imager system will be a Huge Winner. The iPhone 5S contains an all New Finger Print Security system, using Cryptographic Biometric Algorithms for Identity Theft Protection, the equivalency to a Billion-Character Password. iPhone 5C Replaces the iPhone 5, where the present-day iPhone 5 is immediately discontinued. The hugely popular iPhone 4S, (currently out-selling the flagship Galaxy S4) becomes the “new” iPhone Entry Level Apple smartphone. The pricing of the iPhone 4S set to $450, which is $200 below its price when released 2 years ago. No Sacrifice in Quality or Features for any of the Three iPhone Models.

๐ŸŽ iPhone 5S New Camera is a Very Important capability of the iPhone that highly motivates us (by itself) to Upgrade. However, there are lots of other Significant Improvements. The New iPhone 5S is not a modest incremental improvement from the iPhone 4S or the iPhone 5. The "Internal Electronics" of the iPhone 5S are all New, even the all new Sapphire BioMetric Scanner Home Button

๐ŸŽ iPhone 5S Camera. Combining the all new Camera Software App with all new Camera systems, Imager, all new imager with 15% larger Pixels, and Lens with its faster f2.2 aperture, and a totally new Flash, makes for an unbelievable imaging device in one’s pocket or purse.

๐ŸŽ As a professional photographer for decades, having the iPhone Camera in my pocket is a Joy for all my spontaneous candid picture taking. Otherwise I use our trusty digital SLR camera, the Canon 5D3 with a 16-35mm f2.8 Lens, a $5000, 5 pound package.

๐ŸŽ iPhone 5S Security. Identity Theft is an Incredibly Important, when using iPhones or any Smart Phone. It has been reported that less than 45% of smartphone and iPhone users are using Passwords, and 75% of these password-users only use the simple 4-digit-passwords. This means that on average only about 10% of all smartphone users have their devices secured with 6-character passwords. Conversely, 90% of smartphone users do not use any passwords or use very simple passwords, making all their Identity Information subject to Identity Theft.

๐ŸŽ iPhone 5S Finger-Print. The Bad-Guys can’t Guess Your Finger-Print. Apple comes to the rescue, the FiNGER PRINT. Why do so many folks have all their Bank Accounts, Credit Cards, Name and Address Lists, Pictures, Mail, Calendar unprotected? The answer is simple, Folks think they will not loose or have their devices stolen, and these folks are LAZY, they simply do not want to be bothered with all this password stuff. Bad-guys can guess or hack ones passwords; However, the Bad Guys that find your lost iPhone or the Bad-Guys that Stole your iPhone cannot guess or hack YOUR Biometric FingerPrint.

๐ŸŽ iPhone A7 Chip with its 64-Bit Processor plus New M7 Processor. These two added internal ingredients are huge new Components that the unaware media and "investors" may not take notice. In the PC world it took several years for the PC industry, Windows, and the Software developers to make preparations to utilize the power of 64-bit processing. In the case of Apple, 64-bit processing is NOW, where the device, its Operating System and their huge number of App Developers are Ready by September 18th.

๐ŸŽ iPhone’s M7 Chip with 64-bit processing Everything that goes through the iPhone happens very Fast, over 40 times Faster than the first iPhone, and 800% faster than the iPhone 4. The A7 chip now has over 1 Billion internal transistors all in one chip. The new M7 chip separately measures and notices everything monitored about your position, location, direction, speed, steps, calories expended, which will greatly aid Apple’s App Developers in their creation of new comprehensive Health, Wellness, and Fitness programs.

๐ŸŽ iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C gives folks new to Apple, an important "entry-level" iPhone 4 for No Money Down in North America iPhone, and for only $99 the 5C is available in 5 colors, housed in an extremely rigorous, seamless, case hardened Poly Carbonate case. The iPhone 5S is housed in pure metal in three new "anodized" colors of Gold, Silver, and Space Gray Slate.

๐ŸŽ iPhone 5S Memory Options. Many, new to iPhone, and many folks that upgrade their iPhones, do not give enough consideration to memory. iPhone 5S for example comes with 16GB as standard for $199 with a 2-year contract or renewal. Increasing storage with Apple’s $100 memory steps, internal memory may be increased from the "standard" 16GB, to 32GB or 64GB. With Apple’s new Camera and Video systems, you may want to Jump-Up one Memory upgrade than you had thought, to store all those new exciting images and clips because of the better Camera.

๐ŸŽ iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C Memory. In sum, if you are upgrading from a 16GB iPhone 4S, for example, you may want to consider including the optional $100 to bring your iPhone 5S memory to 32GB. FYI, my present iPhone contains 64GB, where 42.2GB is used, and 15.1GB is available as of this writing. These memory stats are a good configuration for my usage; I am using 75% of the iPhone memory and have 25% available. The $200 memory upgrade from 16GB to 64GB, gives me 400% more memory, a really good value. The iPhone 5C provides for a memory upgrade to 32GB as a $100 option.

๐ŸŽ iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, and the iPhone 4S lineup represents a new Apple method for their iPhones. The Wall Street Analysis expected, guessed, that Apple had to create a new “Cheep” iPhone to capture the Entry Level and Asian markets. Apple did not create a low-quality device, but rather is using its hugely popular, even today, iPhone 4S with its advanced features and Camera systems. Since the iPhone 4S has been in production for some 2 years, Tim Cook and the supply-lines are able to optimize component and assembly costs. This permits Apple to sell the iPhone 4S profitably at $450 a price which is about 70% below its initial $650 price in 2011. Therefore the iPhone 5C is replacing the iPhone 5, at a price of $99, and the iPhone 5C priced at $199, and $0.99 for iPhone 4S, there are THREE high quality iPhones in the line up with $100 increments.

๐ŸŽ iPhone line without carrier-subsidies, priced with memory upgrade steps:
1โƒฃ iPhone 5S sells for $650, $750, $850
2โƒฃ iPhone 5C sells for $550, $650
3โƒฃ iPhone 4S sells for $450.

๐ŸŒ iPhone 5S is Coming Soon. will Buy your iPhone, or Android. Gazelle will Pay you quickly by crediting your checking account, your PayPal account, or they will mail you a Check, you decide. From the date that you package your SmartPhone to Gazelle and hand it to the FedEX Agent, to the date that you are actually paid… it takes about 9 calendar days. Several years ago the Pay-Pay-Time was about 11 calendar Days. Our recent transactions took only 9 calendar days. Gazelle has apparently optimized their procedures. Below is a current graphic as of 8/28/2013 of the various entities that will either give Money or Gift Cards for your iPhones.

๐ŸŒ We have used Gazelle for since 2010, where they’ve bought 6 iPhones and 4 iPads over the three years, Gazelle paid exactly as agreed, and Gazelle pays for shipping. What to do with your present iPhone, don’t give it to your Carrier for a $50 credit, SELL the iPhone 4S to Gazelle for about $200 in quick cash, depending on Condition and Model.

๐ŸŒ iPhone 5S Upgrade for $2 ~ Do it With a Commitment for your Old iPhone. In the examples shown are for a 2 year old iPhone 4S with 16GB memory the AT&T version in Good Condition, you’d receive $215. If you get the New iPhone 5S, the price would be $199 plus $18 AT&T administrative charge for the New Contract, Your NET cost is $2. What a Deal, with Gazelle. This is why Marilyn and I have upgraded 10 devices with Gazelle over the past 3 years…

๐ŸŽ The entire Gazelle process has been described in an Article written last Week. It is highly recommended that is given a hard look. Recall this is not an eBay auction. You simply go to their site, identify the iPhone or Android you want Gazelle to Buy, you indicate one of three conditions (Broken, Good, Perfect), do you have the box, the cords, tell gazelle how you’d like to be paid, and Gazelle immediately gives back a Commitment Price good until October 15th.
Check it out:

๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜Ž Marilyn and I are experienced with Gazelle’s Purchase for Cash Program, as we have commitments from to buy our iPhone 5 AT&T, with 64GB memory, iPhones for $350 each, which pays for all of the early-termination that AT&T may be assessing since we are only 1-year into a 2-year contract… (seems like the last time we did this, for the iPhone 5, upgrading from the 4S, the early termination was $180).

๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜Ž Notice that I obtained a commitment from for my iPhone 5+64GB for $350 last week. In checking with today (9/2/2013//2pm) the iPhone5+64GB is quoted for $340. As time gets closer to the actual announcement date, Gazelle’s quotes drop with time, as their Books fill-up with “Contracts” to buy commitments.

๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜Ž Get your Commitment TODAY. In the worst case, or if you change your mind, simply do not send your iPhone to them, there is no liability on your part. However, for reasoned decency, it would be nice if you logged back into to cancel your intention to use their Commitment, making funds available to someone else.

๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜Ž The iPhone for Cash Commitment takes about 9 calendar days including shipping time. Therefore briefly:
1โƒฃ Buy your new iPhone 5S paying all the appropriate charges,
2โƒฃ swap the SIM cards, if you have a GSM device,
3โƒฃ iCloud Restore, use it to rebuild your settings email, photos, calendars into the NEW iPhone 5S
4โƒฃ Verify that your New iPhone5S is working properly.
5โƒฃ CleanUp and RESET your Old iPhone, package it,
6โƒฃ Follow Gazelle’s directions to the letter,
7โƒฃ SHIP to Gazelle using FedEX method.
8โƒฃ Nine Days later you’ll have your Cash in your account, reimbursing your account for some or all of that paid in 1โƒฃ above.

๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜Ž Below are several scenarios of iPhone Upgrades using to convert your old iPhone into Cash. Note I have written another Article giving step-by-step guidance on doing the Gazelle Method, which we have used for 10 Apple (iPhone and iPad) upgrades over the past 3 years.

    I can’t find your post on PS Express, new version for iPad, but how could you possibly rate it 5 stars! They took away all the awesome features! It is nothing now but a dumb version of Instagram! I doubt you really use it, otherwise you would NEVER have given it a good review!

    • I cannot find the review either… here is my review on WordPress, which tells the whole story about my thoughts of PhotoShop Express. I will be issuing another Review for Photogenie4 which released a new version. You may notice most of the Very popular Apps are publishing major updates and iOS7 capabilities…

      Check this out:

    • I recently rewrote the reviews on Photoshop Express and Photogene. Simply scroll down, to locate this Review. Alternatively, click onto the tab at top, titled Apps for Smartphones, these two Apps should be near the top of the list…

      Personal Opinion, Photogene is much much better than any other I’ve tested.
