    Apple’s WWDC wrapped up a hours minutes ago, and even if all we received is software, it’s hard to not admit that the changes are all worth enough to not load the Pocketnow Daily with just this as the news. Apple clearly see's itself as a software company, as many of the new updates have given a new life to products we considered dull, like in the case of the Apple Watch. Instead of offering hardware updates that would only place these products in more difficult obsolescence, today's announcements are enough to re-consider them. Watch our first impressions of WWDC 2016 as we try to ...

    He did it so we didn't have to (ruin a review unit and get Sony representatives on our tail). One young Zaryab Khan — known as xeetechcare on most internet platforms — decided to take his Xperia X for a little dunk in "real water" and not the "fake water" that, apparently, his YouTube commenters thought he had. Take our advice, kid: you don't need those commenters. Khan decided that the Xperia X, not rated for ingress protection unlike the Xperia X Performance, would get a two minute-swim to see if it would sink — in more ways than one. The phone's screen never turned off during ...

    Remember back in the day, when all the cool cats were wearing BlackBerries clipped to their belts? It was as much a fashion statement as a way of showing you meant business (literally), and were down with the latest breakthrough technologies, as well as top-notch mobile security measures. Unfortunately, for the most powerful person on Earth, time stood still for the past eight years, with both iPhones and Android devices deemed potentially hazardous in the hands of President Barack Obama. Ultimately, the two current world-leading platforms stepped up their encryption efforts enough for one ...

    Comparing Galaxy variants was pretty easy a few years ago. Each had its own little set of compromises that made the choice a a no brainer. 2016 is a very different animal, and with three great Galaxy flagships, the stakes are rather high. If we were comparing vehicles, the Galaxy S7 would be the sedan, the S7 Edge would offer a higher trim, and well, the Galaxy S7 Active is the Truck. In the past if you went Active, you’d have to put up with a certain degree of compromise over the flagship sibling, but in 2016, there’s no compromise in buying into this truck. Some claim that the Galaxy ...

    Apple’s WWDC is not only famous for being Apple’s largest event of the year, but also for being software oriented ever since iPhones stopped being announced in it 5 years ago. Still, in Apple’s portfolio software plays a big deal, and if the company has a yearly event based on software, changes are bound to happen. The question is how major these changes will be. Rumors about hardware are still scarce, but Apple can't just sit in its laurels and not do anything substantial in this event. Watch our full video to learn more about our predictions. You can also read more in our separate ...

    They say it takes two to tango, and indeed, Google needed the smartphone-making expertise of Motorola owner Lenovo to turn the forward-thinking Project Tango into commercial reality. Starting September, you’ll be able to use the innovative rear-facing multi-camera setup of the ginormous Lenovo Phab 2 Pro to virtually measure and place certain objects (for instance, furniture) in actual spaces around you. Best Buy and Lowe’s will be among those not only selling the AR-supporting 6.4-incher stateside, but also developing nifty applications for the motion tracking hardware to perform its ...

    The world’s first “SnapPhones” are finally here, and off the bat, the slightly lower-end Motorola Moto Z (by Lenovo) will leave you gasping for air, as you wonder exactly how its designers pulled off a 5.2mm waist. The answer lies in the traditional headphone jack omission, as well as a controversial battery capacity downgrade compared to last year’s Moto X Pure Edition. Not to worry, since the Moto Z Force packs a much heftier 3,500 mAh cell inside a still relatively thin 7mm chassis while also forgoing the old 3.5mm audio connector, and keeping you reliant on USB Type-C and ...

    What do you call spending your honeymoon phase with a beast? I mean hey, first impressions are everything, but if there is one thing rugged phones are never apologetic about, is looks. To be fair, rugged phones were never meant to be pretty. If anything the idea is to serve a purpose, and that's to become as handy of a tool, as the drill and the wrench that you need to get a specific job done. The Galaxy S7 Active is a beast of a phone. It's padded borders hint to a product designed to take a beating, but even as commanding as it is, you'd be surprised that good looks came in the package. ...

    How durable is your phone? Or better yet, how confident are you in your phone's ability to survive daily lifestyle abuse? Do you use your phone "naked", or is a case a mandatory accessory when leaving the house? We're seeing some progress with manufacturers advertising more durable build quality for consumer facing devices. No longer just the ultra-tough construction site gadgets, many flagship phones now champion improved drop protection or enhanced water resistance. We currently have the Galaxy S7 Active in house to review, and that's a perfect time to revisit the topic of "ruggedness". ...

    You don’t need NPH’s charisma, Jaime Lannister’s gallantry, or even the Cookie Monster’s adorkability to come up with an Apple commercial with stellar viral potential. And you definitely don’t need onions either. All it takes is a dedicated, talented community of iFans, and the almost surprisingly capable 12MP rear-facing cameras of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. These have been the protagonists of several “Shot on iPhone” publicity stunts of late, including billboards and a special 30-second Mother’s Day clip compiled by Apple based on touching stills and short vids sent by ...

    Mere hours before arch-rival T-Mobile can “turn it up to 11” with the latest in a long line of unconventional attention-grabbing publicity stunts, Sprint appears to want to make peace with the rest of the US “big four” carriers. A face some of you might find familiar delivers a rather bizarre marketing message in the beginning of a 30-second commercial, claiming “it’s 2016 and every network is great.” Yes, including Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile, according to Sprint, as unbelievable as it sounds. The twist? The “Now Network” insists its rates are much lower than those of ...

    When Google first launched the Nexus, it was a phone platform designed to set a threshold for what an Android phone should resemble. While focused on developers, there was a novelty for consumers in owning a phone supported directly by Google. As one could receive top tier processors at market disrupting prices, the Nexus quickly developed a passionate fan base among the Android savvy. However, today it's a lot more common to find manufacturers playing with lower price points and including powerful internals. This space has become increasingly competitive, as companies look for ways to ...

    How much does it take for Sony's marketing plan to include the United States? We don't know, but after Eurasia got all the Xperia X love, we're only starting to see the first phones ship this week. So, we can let the Japanese manufacturer off the hook for kicking things off for the 'Murica yesterday. The SonyXperiaUSA YouTube account has a slew of videos promoting the series in general, the Xperia X Performance, the lower-end Xperia XA and the leading player, the Xperia X. No Xperia XA Ultra? Well, that would be quite alright if we got anything of a release date and pricing, but we guess ...
