Watch our unboxing video for all the essentials of the Nokia 2

At the end of 2017, HMD Global officially announced the Nokia 2, an entry-level device that focuses on less demanding users with a limited budget. It’s the cheapest device from Nokia and today we’d like to present it to you in our unboxing video!

The Nokia 2 is a low end smartphone. It became available in the US in November 2017 for $ 100 and it relies upon its good battery life. Its technical specifications aren’t particularly attractive: it has the Snapdragon 212 processor with only 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory. The device is then mounted with a 5-inch screen with HD resolution (gamers, this device is not for you). When you turn on the device you won’t find Android Nougat since Nokia has already confirmed the arrival of Android Oreo!

The device features a main sensor with 8 MP on the back camera and 5 MP sensor on the front camera. As already mentioned, the smartphone’s battery life is the real selling point: it has 4000 mAh at your disposal that should guarantee 2 days of autonomy. But let’s cut to the chase: you can take a look at the Nokia 2 in our unboxing video!

Below are the complete technical specifications. Take a look at the video and numbers, let us know in the comments if you’re curious about any aspects of the Nokia 2 and stay tuned for our final review of the device!

The most underrated iPhone function is hidden in the watch app

There is an app for everything. This was Apple’s slogan, used when the first versions of the iPhone were released. Arguably, this motto has had a huge impact on the world of mobile phones. Fast forward to now, and we’re very familiar with iPhones and their functions. This article will tell about you a little secret that you might not have realized you could do – it could make your day-to-day life easier!

The function I’m talking about does not come from a fancy application, and does not require any change to your smartphone. It’s simple, yet very helpful to me once I discovered it.

I know many of you will have the same habit as me. Sometimes I’ll accidentally fall asleep with my music still playing out loud, which may be annoying for family, flatmates, or whoever you are living with. If you’re a little bit lazy like me, and the thought of getting up from your warm, comfortable sofa to switch your speaker off is horrible, then this is where the iPhone watch comes to the rescue.

Smartphone geeks out there, you probably already know about this, but for those of you who have no clue what i’m talking about, here is how you can use the interrupt playback function in the timer, to solve those problems I mentioned above.

Thanks to this function, you can program a timer that will magically stop the music at the time you specify. Now you can relax and nap peacefully without disturbing the rest of the household (or yourself for that matter!).

The function is able to stop both the default music player on your iPhone, but also many alternatives such as Spotify. Forget AR or artificial intelligence, I was super excited to discover this feature. Here are some simple instructions:

  • Go to ‘’Clock>Timer‘’
  • Set your desired time
  • Select ‘When Timer Ends’ to open the available ringtones
  • Scroll through to the end, where you’ll find ‘’Stop playback’’ (the secret!)

You can now fall asleep in peace with background music. Will you use this function?

TechCrunch Disrupt 2017: 5 startups to watch out for

On the 4th and 5th of December 2017, the Arena in Berlin’s trendy Kreuzberg district (soon to host a new Google campus) was swarming with entrepeneurs and enthusiasts over the course of the 2-day convention. Almost any trendy tech you could think of was represented—AR, VR, drones, wearables, blockchain, fintech, medicine, social networks, 3D printing and more.

Although your humble reporter could only spend one frantic morning at the event, I had the opportunity to chat with up-and-coming startups promising to disrupt the world of consumer electronics in the coming year. Here’s our pick of the Startup Allee at TechCrunch Disrupt 2017, and what they had to show.

Lightweight AR glasses that don’t look (totally) dorky

Augmented reality has been a buzzword for years already, but this futuristic tech is still going through its growing pains. Various companies big and small have tried to get us comfortable with different headsets and smart spectacles but they’ve generally been too bulky (or silly looking) to catch on.

Korean startup LetinAR might be the company that cracks the balance between comfort and functionality. Their AR glasses are compact and comfortable enough that I could really see them working with everyday use. Below you can see me modelling a pair alongside LetinAR CEO Jaehyeok Kim.

As you can see from the scene above, LetinAR’s glasses aren’t exactly fashionable but they are lightweight and feel natural (at least, to someone used to wearing regular glasses). 

As for use, LetinAR are currently partnered with BMW to provide navigation assistance for drivers and are planning similar software coupled with fitness trackers for cyclists. Perhaps most interesting of all, however, will be AR subtitles—watch a foreign language film through the glasses, and see the subs appear before your eyes.

LetinAR aims to release their glasses in 2017 for Android devices. This means you’ll still have to connect the glasses to your phone or tablet with a cable, but LetinAR’s ambitions go far beyond that, standalone glasses in the pipeline over the next couple of years.

Now, a machine can learn to speak with your voice

At AndroidPIT, we’ve been thinking about vocal recognition a lot this year, but mainly when it comes to smart home tech. Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and co will recognize and respond to your voice. But voice cloning tech startup respeecher looks at it from a different angle—what if machines could get to know our voices so well that they could perfectly imitate them?

This Ukrainian startup uses deep learning to create a synthesized version of someone’s voice, which can then be programmed to say anything. You can check out samples of voice cloning work on their website, and the accuracy and realism is really impressive.

According to CTO Dmytro Bielievtsov, the technology behind respeecher was born from just playing around but could have a wide range of commercial applications. For example, movies can be dubbed in the voice of the original actor. CEO Oleksandr Serdiuk also suggests that in the future, when you contact a customer support call center, the voice you hear on the other line might not belong to the real-life operator at all, but instead be a cloned voice copied from the charismatic and persuasive agent on the team.

The guys for debt collection in call centers, they told us that some guys do almost nothing, but always succeed just because they have such a good voice.

The technology behind respeecher needs an hour of speech from the original speaker to make a clone, which raises an interesting possibility for voice actors. Once you have an hour’s worth of your portfolio, could you just upload it and license it out to be cloned by your clients?

If the idea sounds creepy, Bielievtsov insist that their mission is actually to avoid the uncanny valley entirely. He finds it off-putting to interact with bots and automated speech, but hopes that his technology will put us at ease by making the machine speak with all the warmth, nuance and feeling of a real person.

A new world for VR

The idea of a shared virtual world as always captured the imagination of futuristic thinkers, ever since the classic cyberpunk novel Snow Crash. One of the latest efforts to make this a reality comes at the hands of Somnium Space, which promises an open and persistent VR world that is compatible across various different platforms—Oculus, Vive, Dayream, GearVR, etc.

I gave Somnium Space a spin (using the HTC Vive) and explored a little corner of their virtual world. While gamers and thrill-seekers won’t find much action here, it has potential as a social space, as users will be able to purchase virtual real estate and construct houses, office buildings, etc.

Naturally, the idea of virtual property pays a key part in the monetization of this experience—free to visit, but pay to settle down. This isn’t an action game, but a vehicle for creativity and commerce. You can create and produce things in Somnium Space, and yes, someone might even pay you for what you make.

Essentially, what we’re looking at is a VR version of something like Second Life, and if that’s anything to go by, there could be huge potential here.

somnium Somnium Space is not a hardcore game but it does have an arcade you can visit in town. / © AndroidPIT

Interestingly, Somnium Space will allow both VR-heads and those more skeptical of the technology to mix freely in their virtual world, since you don’t need to be in VR to be there, and whether you’re strapped in to a headset or not, you can still interact, play games with, or talk to, anyone else you meet in the virtual world.

It’s been a long time since Snow Crash, and even The Matrix, but the upcoming Steven Spielberg film adaptation of Ready Player One might propel the idea of shared VR worlds back into the public consciousness at a critical time for Somnium Space.

The ‘real’ world also gets the VR treatment

Those of us who find the idea of a completely artificial space such as the one offered by Somnium Space may still find something to like with the VR reality tours offered by ViarLive. This Moldovian startup enables conversation of footage taken by 360-degree cameras to be converted into VR spaces that can be hosted online and embedded onto websites.

Something like a Tube site for VR content, ViarLive is great for tech enthusiasts with the right equipment to be able to record their travels and experiences and have others really immerse themselves into them. Hike to the summit of a mountain, for example, then create a VR space that allows people all around the world to enjoy the view as if they were there.

Naturally, the main commercial application here is in tourism. By using the app below and any kind of VR headset, even the humble Cardboard, you can see how it works by looking around a beautiful Moldovan monastery.

Since ViarLive also offers the potential to access various interactive information points planted in the scenery, you’ll be able to look at statue and bring up information about who it represents, or interact with a table at a restaurant to make a reservation. All-in-all, great potential for tourists that really want to check out a place in detail when planning their next trip.

Multi-screen AR makes TV interesting again

I’ll admit that in the midst of all the exciting interactive entertainment technology available today, good old-fashioned television rarely excites me, no matter how smart TVs get. But German startup eyecandylab GmbH did manage to, uh, catch my eye. The particular kind of candy they offer is the prospect of using AR apps on your mobile device to enhanced your TV watching experience.

I had a chat with founder Tom Orzikowski, who gave me a demo of how it works. Basically, they aim to bring the “two screens”, namely the television and your mobile device, together for the first time. In the above picture, the tablet can see the football game on the TV screen and then surround it with additional interactive and visual information about the team and players. 

Additional examples included having the fish from a nature documentary pop out of the TV and follow you around on the tablet screen, and being able to pull out the car from a car commercial and see its stats and price.

Something I always found irritating about interactive television was that, when you activated it, everyone else watching on the couch with you had to see the same thing on screen, even if they didn’t want to. Eyecandylab’s tech could be used without disturbing anyone else watching, who may well be using different AR enhancements on their own devices at the same time.

2018 – A year of disruption?

These were just a few of the exciting startups that grabbed my attention during our short time at TechCrunch Disrupt 2017, but there were plenty more pushing for innovation over a range of different fields. Are you excited to see any of the above products next year? Or are you looking forward to something else entirely? Let us know in the comments!

Flagship season is in full swing so on Monday, October 16, it will be Huawei’s time to shine under the spotlight.

Can you use an Apple Watch with an Android smartphone?

Despite its late arrival to the smartwatch market, the Apple Watch is currently the best-selling smartwatch in the world. What’s even better is that Apple could even become the top watch manufacturer in the world according to Tim Cook, CEO of the company. It’s not unusual for many Android users to be interested in this product. But can you use an Apple Watch with an Android smartphone? The answer is in our article.

Does the Apple Watch work with an Android smartphone?

In theory, no. Apple didn’t plan for any official compatibility between their smartwatch and an Android smartphone. To use the Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + 4G), you need an iPhone 6 or a more recent model with the latest version of iOS. To use the Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS) or the older models of the Apple Watch, you need an iPhone 5s or a more recent model, with the latest version of iOS.

Apple didn’t plan for any official compatibility between their smartwatch and an Android smartphone

Why isn’t this possible?

No official Watch application is available on the Google Play Store for Android users. It’s not possible to synchronize your Android phone with the Apple Watch. To reinforce the incompatibility, Apple encrypts information shared between the iPhone and the Apple Watch, which can be achieved through a simple Bluetooth connection.

Why doesn’t the latest Apple Watch Series 3 with 4G LTE work with an Android smartphone?

Unfortunately, the launch of the Apple Watch Series 3 with a GSM modem/4G LTE still hasn’t resolved the compatibility issue between the Apple smartwatch and Android phones. Apple doesn’t offer a nano-SIM slot on the new smartwatch. It’s up to the operators to offer services allowing the watch’s integrated SIM to link to your smartphone.

AndroidPIT iPhone X 15 Apple Watch Series 3 © AndroidPIT

So, of course, there’s a possibility that you could sync your Apple Watch Series 3 GPS + Cellular with an Android smartphone but this solution is reserved for tinkerers. Be aware that you must have an iPhone (or that someone you know must have one) to insert your SIM card to set up the Apple Watch and then connect it to your Android smartphone. The compatibility isn’t perfect and seriously harms the battery of the connected watch. If you’re determined, you can follow the tutorial by iMore.

Will there always be incompatibility between the Apple Watch and Android smartphones?

The race of the connected watches is in full swing. While Apple is in the lead, it won’t be long until the Cupertino firm faces competition from Samsung, Garmin, Fitbit or even Fossil. One of the reasons for this is, in fact, the inability to correctly use an Android smartphone with an Apple Watch. Apple would have everything to gain by offering compatibility with Android in order to gain more users. However, nothing is to be won when the brand is only focused on encouraging more users to buy an iPhone and an Apple Watch.

Opinion by Pierre Vitré

The Apple Watch will face real competition soon due to its incompatibility with Android phones

What do you think?

What are the alternatives?

Finally, if you’re really interested in buying a smartwatch, know that there are other smartwatches available from brands other than Apple. There is a vast range available nowadays. I advise you to take a look at our list of the best Android smartwatches.

Apple Watch Series 3: the future of the Apple Watch is here

Apple has just presented the new generation of the Apple Watch alongside the three new iPhones. This version will come with watchOS 4, LTE support and an antenna that works through the display.

Apple Watch Series 3

The third generation of the Apple Watch can work independently of a smartphone. For this to work, Apple provided it with a faster chip so that apps could work on their own. The new dual core processor has an Apple-designed Bluetooth and Wi-Fi chip which has low power consumption. In spite of all these changes, it’s the same size as the Apple Watch Series 2. Apple has incorporated an electronic SIM card, though its unclear whether it’s an Apple SIM or an eSIM. With the third Apple Watch, the Cupertino firm has come up with a refined solution for the antenna: it’s built into the display.

The new Apple Watch has other exciting new features as well. For example, Siri is able to speak to you directly through the watch. Apple Music will be available as an app on the Apple Watch this year, meaning you won’t need a paired smartphone to listen to music. With integrated LTE, users will always be connected.

The Apple Watch Series 3 will be ready for pre-order from September 15, and available from September 22. It will cost $ 329 without LTE and $ 399 with LTE. It will work with all major carriers in the US: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. A wide range of colors and bands are available, and you can check out the Apple website for details.

If you’re not convinced by the newer Apple Watches, the Apple Watch Series 1 received a price reduction and is now just $ 249. Let us know what you think of the Series 3 in the comments!
