In their own words, if you are a Verizon customer who consumes an "extraordinary amount" of data while using their unlimited data plans, the company will force you to switch over to The Verizon Plan by August 31. If you decide not to change your plan even after the warning and the deadline, your connection will be cut off from the network. After the connection has been shut down, the customer will be able to activate their connection back within fifty days, on switching over to some other Verizon plan than before.


It should be noted that Verizon Wireless had stopped with the unlimited plans a long time ago and this is a ploy to bring the remaining subscribers into one of their new data plans. Although they did mention that they will only contact customers who are using too much data on a monthly basis, no exact number was revealed. However, this makes one wonder, how one can possibly use too much data in a plan that's been marketed as "unlimited?" Whatever the logic at work over here might be, this is how the situation is right now, as reported by Droid-Life.

When it comes to news on the internet, they are often based on rumors, leaks and sometimes even pure speculation. According to such an unconfirmed report by Reuters, Samsung could be considering the idea of building a manufacturing unit in the United States. The plant would be used to manufacture home appliances for the local market. Experts have cited the idea as a result of the new US President's plans to impose heavy import taxes on all products manufactured outside the country. Although Samsung has not confirmed the news, the President has already thanked Samsung for their decision on Twitter!


The tweet read, "Thank you, @Samsung! We would love to have you!"



According to The Investor, an unnamed Samsung official has expressed that the tweet puts a lot of unwarranted pressure on the company. Firstly, it gives the public an impression that the decision has already been made by Samsung. Secondly, it could be viewed as an indirect way of forcing the Korean company into building a manufacturing plant over here in the US.


It remains to be seen if Samsung really does invest more into building manufacturing plants in the US, especially since its recent semiconductor business in Texas has just received a $17 billion investment.

Apple makes great smartphones but the thing is that they do not have too many features which Android smartphones don't already have. If anything, top tier smartphones from brands such as Samsung and LG actually have a lot more to offer than iPhones. Having said that, there are still a few things that Apple smartphones do better than any Android smartphone out there and Force Touch or 3D Touch is one of them. Android smartphones have been trying to implement pressure sensitive display technology for years now, but none of the attempts have so far been nearly as successful. The Galaxy Note 8 is rumored to change all that with impressive implementation of the technology.

 

Whether the rumor is true or not, what we do know for sure is that the pressure sensitive Home button on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will most definitely be making its way onto the Note 8 as well. If the rumors are true however, we will see many more added functionalities from the Galaxy Note 8's pressure sensitive display than ever before. Then again, if you have ever used a recent iPhone, I doubt that such features will surprise you.

Lenovo has just unleashed a brand new series, which will replace the Moto X series of smartphones, starting from 2016. Both the phones in the new Z-series will come with top tier specs like a SD 820 CPU, a 5.5-inch QHD panel, 4GB of RAM and even the choice for 32GB/64GB in-built storage (along with expandable SD card slots). The regular Moto Z will sport a 13-megapixel rear sensor with laser autofocus, optical image stabilization and a dual tone LED flash for pitch dark conditions. On the front, there's the 5-megapixel snapper with a dedicated selfie-flash and a wide angle lens for group selfies. All this will be powered by the Quick charging 2,600mAh battery inside the Z.


The Moto Z Force has the bigger 3,500mAh battery and a shatterproof glass on the front. Lenovo calls the glass "ShatterShield" and they are confident that it cannot be broken by even the roughest of falls. The thicker and more premium device also features a higher resolution 21-megapixel sensor with phase detection laser autofocus, optical image stabilization and an aperture of f/1.8 for low-light photography. In spite of the flagship specs, what we did not like is the missing headphone jack that we have grown accustomed to. Although an USB Type-C to headphone adapter is included in the box, it means that you cannot simultaneously use the Type-C port for charging or data syncing, while listening to the headphones.



In addition to the missing 3.5mm jack, the two Moto phones also bring something else that the market is just getting accustomed to. Both phones have 16 magnetic dots at the lower-back area and they are equipped to connect with the "Moto Mods." Similar to what we saw with the LG G5 modular phone that was released earlier this year, the Moto Mods are modular accessories created specifically for the Moto Z smartphones to enhance the device's already impressive capabilities. There's the InstaShare Projector mod and some stylish case mods, but we found the JBL Soundboost mod to be the most impressive with its twin 3W speakers and a 1,000 mAh battery to boost the phone's usage time.



As is evident, the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force has a LOT to offer, but you will have to wait till September to get your hands on one, if you are outside the US. Verizon in the US however, will release their "Droid Editions" sooner.

According to a report by GSMArena, the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid have started to receive the latest Android 7.0 Nougat update on Verizon. It has not yet been officially declared by the carrier, but reports are being received from reliable sources which confirm the authenticity of this news.


If your Moto Z Droid or Moto Z Force Droid is being prompted for the update, connect to your Wi-Fi and prepare for the download as it's a huge one at around 1.5GB. Once you have downloaded and upgraded the package successfully, the firmware version on the Moto Z Droid should change to NCL25.86-11, while on the Moto Z Force Droid, it should show NCL26.86-11.



Although the installation should only take about twenty minutes on its own, the downloading time will of course vary, depending on the speed of the connection. The upgrade will bring multiple improvements, as well as new features to the two Moto devices, namely the App Quick-Switch and the Split-Screen mode. As always, Lenovo Moto becomes one of the first manufacturers to provide the latest version of the Android OS officially.
