Google Home now supports hands-free calling. One big missing feature from Google Home when it launched was the ability to make phone calls with the device.

Sony‘s next flagship looks very similar to the Xperia XZ. Sony has a tendency to stick with one design for its flagships as long as it can. 2015‘s Xperia Z4 had imperceptible differences compared to 2013‘s Xperia Z. Sony tweaked its design language with the newer XZ series, and it looks like that design will carry forward. @OnLeaks and Comapreaja have shared images of the alleged Sony Xperia XZ1, the sequel to the Xperia XZ.

Science can be a beautiful thing. A total solar eclipse is literally an astronomical event. It requires celestial bodies lining up perfectly over millions of miles. For us to see a total eclipse on the ground, we have to be lucky enough to be on a small strip of the U.S., and we have to hope that it doesn‘t rain or cloud up, blocking our view of the heavens. Well, rain or shine, totality or not, we can still enjoy a view of the eclipse
Alcatel‘s A50 smartphone will be available on two different Canadian networks. Alcatel‘s A5 smartphone features the company‘s own take on modules for a budget price.

The Moto E4 may not be an expensive phone, but it‘s still worth a lot to you. Make sure its screen stays scuff-free!
