As Verizon’s GS8 gets its Daydream VR update, Google CEO Sundar Pichai says a total of 11 Daydream phones will be available by the end of 2017.

It was promised back at Google I/O, and now the Samsung Galaxy S8 has started receiving firmware updates to enable Google’s Daydream VR platform.

It’s made to take a beating, with its break-proof ShatterShield screen cover technology, but at 6.1mm thin it’s extremely easy to wield in one hand. And while the Moto Z2 Force Edition is the spitting image of the Moto Z2 Play, it features a dual camera setup and a high-resolution Super AMOLED display. The only real  [Read More…]

Motorola’s latest Moto Mod is a snap-on 360-degree camera

The Moto 360 name is back, but not in the way you think.

Motorola’s newest Moto Mod isn’t another battery — thank goodness — nor a speaker. It’s not a wireless charging add-on nor a gamepad (though I really want that, too). It’s not even a camera — at least not in the traditional sense.

The latest Moto Mod is a 360-degree camera, similar to Samsung’s Gear 360 or Ricoh’s Theta S, except that this one snaps  [Read More…]

Honor 6X is now one of the best phones under $200

The Honor 6X was a pretty great phone at $ 250. Now it’s an essential buy at under $ 200.

The Honor 6X had a rough start to its life, mainly because it was running an older version of Android that had a few problems. But that was quickly corrected with an update to Android 7.0 and EMUI 5.0 back in May, and since then things have been smooth sailing for the mid-range value handset — even at its  [Read More…]
