The Moto Z3 is a lot like the RED Hydrogen One | #PNWeekly 316

Notches. How many can a phone have? How many should a phone have? Is it good to be leading the pack in terms of selling the most phones with notches? And what about other questionable design choices like inserting a mock circuit board into the back of your phone to make it look pretty? The news is brimming with annoying, but pertinent questions this week.

In addition to getting some answers on those, we’ll also be dishing theses on what just launched in Chicago. Motorola, Verizon and Qualcomm are backing a last-generation smartphone with a thin bridge to golden 5G speeds. Will this make sense? Will it get customers riled up? What’s it all mean?

Plenty to talk about here, so strap yourselves in. It’s the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch the YouTube live broadcast from 2:00pm Eastern on August 3rd or check out the high-quality audio version right here. Talk back live while you’re watching the show on Twitter with #PNWeekly! You can shoot your listener emails to [email protected] for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air at the end of the month!
