Best augmented reality apps

Apps with augmented reality integration interact with the things around you, giving you a different perspective and way to see the world. Some hardware, such as Project Tango in Lenovo’s PHAB2 Pro can even help with this! Augmented apps take physical items and add a digital aspect to them, reminiscent of pop-up books, adding an element of fun to whatever you’re doing, whether it’s playing Pokemon Go, looking at the stars, or just scanning your favorite snack at the store. Here’s some of our favorites.

Huawei Mate 9 review: The U.S. perspective

Huawei’s devices have been primarily targeted at European and Asian markets, but the company has more recently been trying to enter the US market. The Mate 9 is, without a doubt, one of Huawei’s few flagship devices that have made it to the US, but unfortunately, it hasn’t really made as many waves as, say, Samsung or LG. Things are changing, though. Huawei is beginning to attract the attention of US carriers, giving them a wider audience to market to instead of just from an Unlocked standpoint.

They’ve still got a long road ahead, but with a premium handset like the Mate 9 available to buy in the US, perception of the company is definitely changing. If you’re on the fence about buying a Chinese phone like the Mate 9 on Unlocked channels, follow along below and we’ll hopefully show you that the Mate 9 can be just as good as something like the Galaxy S7.
