Rugged and armor cases for the iPhone X: protect your investment

That iPhone X sure is a pretty gem, yeah? It would be a shame if something happened to it…

Oh, no, wait, we’re not threatening you — it’s just that your $999+ investment has a slippery glass back and a huge chance that whatever side it falls on might cause a break. This may not be an issue in your everyday life if you happen to live a more peaceful lifestyle, but it’s a good idea to think about an armor case if you happen to go on long journeys from time to time, or hikes, bike rides, or just tend to bump against hard surfaces on a regular basis.

AT&T launches Threat Defender, an Android app that's not meant to protect your smartphone


File this under “carriers do wacky things” to please customers. The “culprit” in this case? AT&T, which has just launched an Android app called Threat Defender. Even the most non-tech savvy consumers would probably think that the new app launched by the US carrier is meant to protect their smartphones.

Alas, AT&T Threat Defender is purely an entertainment app that’s only good to “protect” you from boredom for a little while. If you haven’t guessed it yet, Threat Defender is an interactive game that’s available to everyone who owns a device running Android 2.3 and up.

If Google Play Protect messed up Bluetooth on your Android phone, here is a quick fix

Google Play Protect combines several features that are already available for Android handsets, and puts them together under the Google Play Protect branding. This includes automatic scanning for viruses and the Find My Device feature. The Google Play Protect logo will soon appear on the packaging of every device with the Google Play Store pre-installed. The service has been pushed out to several Android models, and this has led to a problem with Bluetooth on some units.

For some reason, Google Play Protect red flags an app called Bluetooth Share 7.0, mistakenly listing it as being unsafe. …

Spigen's cases are ready to protect your Galaxy Note 8 from day 1

This story is sponsored by Spigen. PhoneArena’s opinions in this article have not been affected in any way!

The Galaxy Note 8 is out and it is as beautiful as it is big and slippery. Yup, let’s say it outright, a glass sandwich looks awe-inspiring, but is prone to slip from careless hands, especially when the device is as tall as the Note 8 is. And, with it’s price-tag, that’d be one expensive slip!

Of course, you’d be considering protection. If you have a less …

Google protects you: Play Protect is finally on a slow rollout to mainstream users

We’ve been hearing about Google Play Protect — Google’s solution for device protection — since this year’s I/O. And while some beta testers have seen it earlier, the feature seems to currently be on a slow rollout to all users.

What is Play Protect? It’s basically an anti-malware tool, which monitors app behavior and gives them a firm slap if they try something funny. To be clear, the Play Store has had various levels of scan for a while now. However, Play Protect ups the ante a bit.

The new service is not only a ghost scanner that checks apps that are live …

Best cases to protect your shiny, new Sony Xperia XZ Premium

Alright, guys, Sony has announced that its second 4K smartphone — the Xperia XZ Premium — is headed for the US and will be landing on the 19th of June with a price tag of $799.99. Yeah, it’s a pricey top-tier handset, but hey — we guess that’s the price of the super-sharp 4K display.

So, yeah, it’s a pretty phone, but it’s also an expensive phone. You will probably want to have at least one case for it — if not for everyday use, then for just special occasions where you will be spending more time out and about with increased risks of dropping the handset. Of course, …
