- V3 Apps
The battle for smartphone supremacy is in full swing, with Apple and Samsung both pushing their flagship devices. So it is no surprise our head-to-head review of the iPhone 5S and Galaxy S4 proved the most popular content of the week for V3 readers.
Elsewhere, our report on cryptic tweets hinting at a 28 October launch of the KitKat 4.4 Android platform and the Nexus 5 attracted a lot of interest from readers, suggesting demand for Google’s platform is as strong as ever.
Meanwhile, Apple’s operating system fared less well, with V3 readers queuing up to berate the new platform for numerous issues and irritations. Microsoft will be hoping its Windows 8.1 update, launched last week, does not suffer a similar fate.
In other news, the European Commission urged firms in the region not to give up on cloud computing after the PRISM scandal, by pointing out many of the benefits that it offers.
