Pocketnow Weekly 192: iPhone 7 leaks, Galaxy S7 Edge comparisons, and Windows app woes

Fri Mar 18 2016 (01:34:07)

The iPhone 7 might be the leakiest iPhone yet, in that we're seeing quite a few shots of the camera and antenna bands. The Galaxy S7 Edge does battle with the S6 Edge+ and Note 5. Windows Phone users say goodbye to HERE Maps, and the camera on the Galaxy S7 is THOROUGHLY reviewed.

We've been hard at work covering news stories and producing the next generation of phone reviews. We recently started a new series of videos delving deeper into camera performance and photography term definitions, and of course we'll be tackling your questions and comments. Make sure you're charged and ready! It's podcast time on episode 191 of the Pocketnow Weekly!

Watch the video broadcast from 2:00pm Eastern on March 17th (click here for your local time), or check out the high-quality audio version starting at 3pm on Friday. And don't forget to shoot your listener mail to podcast [AT] pocketnow [DOT] com for a shot at getting your question read aloud on the air!

Today's episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is made possible by:

It takes so much time to search through coupons and deals to find what you are really looking for. It’s a time waster and not very fun. Well, there is a new app that is changing how online shopping works, making the money saving experience more enjoyable. and it only takes 60 seconds to get started.

It’s called Benjamin.

Benjamin considers your favorite brands, sizes, and your interests to find awesome deals for products you actually want. Other deal sites offer things like photography lessons and yoga classes, but Benjamin works with brands such as Ray Ban, Patagonia, and even the NFL to bring you real deals that you actually want.
Benjamin has been called the Tinder of personalized shopping – because you never know what deal you’re gonna get and all it takes is a left or right swipe to claim an offer.

And just for our listeners, the folks at the Benjamin app have set up a webpage where you can claim deals such as:
- Half-off Spotify Premium
- Hulu for $3 a month
- 25% off Starbucks gift cards
- and half-off Ray Bans
It’s all about the benjamins! And keep some extra benjamins in your pocket by heading over to benjaminapp.co/pocketnow to see all the special offers for yourself!
