Watch People Freak Out When They See Ghosts Inside an iPhone Camera

Casey Chan, Gawker Media

This prank is such pure evil genius that you can't help but laugh. And feel bad because you'd get freaked out too. Funny man Jack Vale scared the creepy crawly goosebumps out of people by asking strangers to take his picture with his iPhone. Why's that scary? Because Vale had pre-recorded a fake 'ghost' (or zombie) walking through the frame of the camera so people would think they just saw a dead person that wasn't there in real life move across the screen. What the people thought they were seeing in real time was actually a horrifying recording.

Creepy! But totally genius, right? And totally not expected when a stranger asks you to take their picture. Some people's reactions are priceless, though I would have expected more people to shriek and drop the phone as opposed to being deeply unsettled by their sixth sense. [Jack Vale]

Busy July

The second half of every year is usually not considered to be very busy as far as smartphone announcements are concerned, but that notion is quickly changing. Apple’s iPhones and the Samsung Galaxy Note range were the only notable flagship offerings that would break cover during the second half of the year, but from this year we have the OnePlus 2, while Motorola also releases its flagships in the second half of the year. This month in particular has been very busy with the arrival of the OnePlus 2, the Moto X Style, Moto X Play and the Moto G. Regional player YU also released the Yureka Plus this month, so we have seen a myriad of handsets in July. At the same time, we have also seen some existing handsets making the headlines this month for the wrong reasons, so we have a look at them all.
