Sony may begin its Android 7.0 rollout next month. Are you using Nougat yet?

#Sony #Xperia #Android #Nougat
Sony doesn’t currently have any phones running Android 7.0 Nougat, but according to a new leak, that could change soon. According to a slide from a Sony Slovakia presentation, the Xperia X Performance and Xperia XZ will be the first Sony phones to be updated to Nougat. The slide, obtained by Xperia Blog, claims that the updates for both phones will begin rolling out “around October.”

Xiaomi hasn't announced the Mi Box's launch or price yet, but the Android TV device has showed up in at least one Walmart store. Would you buy the Mi Box for $69?

Xiaomi has remained pretty quiet about its Android TV-powered Mi Box since the device was announced back in May, but it looks like the set-top box will be available soon.

Over the past few years, the industry has increased the amount of options we have when it comes to upgrading. How do you upgrade these days? Do you stick to the 2-year cycle we've been used to for years, or have you taken to using installment plans, leasing, or paying for your phone in full?

It doesn’t seem like it was that many years ago where the industry only offered two ways to purchase a new smartphone: full price or 2-year contract. Since then, the industry has essentially been turned on its head, thanks in no small part to the early efforts of T-Mobile’s “Uncarrier” initiative. Now carriers offer two-year contracts, full price purchase, installment plans, or even the ability to lease a phone every year.

Sprint may have eliminated one method of buying its Android phones. Have you ever leased a phone from a carrier?

#Sprint #Android
If you’re shopping for a new Android phone at Sprint, you no longer have the option to lease a device.

I prefer the 2 year service agreement discount. U get a great price and the phone is actually yours to do what u want with. Leasing is something i would never do. I hated that they wanted to do away with the 2 year agreement discount

An update to iOS 10.0.2 is now available, and among the fixes is a patch for the bug that'd cause the in-line controls of some headphones to stop working.

#iOS #iPhone #Apple #iOS10

The update includes a fix for the bug that causes the in-line controls of some headphones to stop working after a few minutes of inactivity. Here’s the official iOS 10.0.2 changelog from Apple:

An app that appears to me aimed towards kids who are interested in coding, Apple's Swift Playgrounds actually provides an insightful experience to newbie coders of all ages. Have you tried out Swift Playgrounds yet?

http://www.phonedog.com/2016/09/25/swift-playgrounds-not-just-kids
When Apple announced Swift Playgrounds during WWDC earlier this year, I was thrilled. As a mom of two kids – one who is already interested in technology and how it works – a program designed specifically to teach the fundamentals of Apple’s new coding language (Swift was unveiled in 2014, set to replace Apple’s more complicated Objective-C language) to the next generation of coders sounded like an excellent idea.

If a newly-leaked video is to be believed, Snapchat is prepping a new product called Spectacles, which are sunglasses with a built-in camera and flash. Would you wear these Spectacles?

#Snapchat #Spectacles #Android #iPhone
According to a newly-leaked video, Snapchat is going to get into the wearables game. A new video shows Spectacles, a pair of sunglasses made by Snapchat that have a camera and flash, letting you capture Snapchat photos and videos from your perspective. The video shows that when you begin recording, a ring around the camera flashes. We can also see a yellow ring around the camera and flash that’s likely a sort of subtle Snapchat logo.

Allo is Google's brand new messaging application for Android and iOS that features artificial intelligence and machine learning to cater information to you based off of your conversations. However, the app certainly isn't without its bugs and quirks. How do you like Google Allo?

Allo is Google's brand new messaging application that features artificial intelligence and machine learning to cater information directly to you based off what is being conversed in your chats. While the app is officially available for iOS and Android, it certainly isn't free from bugs and quirks. Google wants you to know that the Assistant is still in preview. How do you like Google Allo?
