We've Got a Moto Z Force Droid to Unbox


This is a mouthful: Moto Z Force Droid. Originally, they wanted to tag "Edition" to the end of that, which would have tongue tied us even more. This phone was announced officially in June but wasn't available until July. Even then, it will be a Verizon exclusive. It's little brother, Moto Z Droid, will have an unlocked version but it's availability isn't until October. 

There is one distinct feature about this phone which i'm dying to try out though, the Mods. Unfortunately, my Verizon friends weren't able to provide any for me. So I can only speak on the swappable back plate. More on that in the full review. Take a look at this unboxing and let it hold you over as I begin my review of the Moto Z Force Droid.

UPDATED: Pokemon Go Buddy Update is Live for Android and iOS


During the process of updating a few phones to iOS 10 (work related), I noticed that the Pokemon Go update has now gone live. Immediately, I checked my personal Android and it was there too.

The new update has a few changes, minor bug fixes, text changes, Pokemon Go Plus support, Egg hatching issues (no animation sometimes), but most importantly the ability to assign a buddy pokemon. As always with this game, Niantic isn't very clear on how this system will actually work, but the premise is that the further you walk with your buddy, the more candy you will get of it's kind. 

Jump to the Google Play Store and update Pokemon Go as fast as you can, and get to walking!
