    iPhone SE reviewed, Motorola Edge, and saving our coral reefs - Pocket-lint podcast ep. 50

    iPhone SE reviewed, Motorola Edge, and saving our coral reefs - Pocket-lint podcast ep. 50

    This week, we've got details on the new Motorola Edge flagship smartphone, talk to Intel and Accenture about how they are working with the Sulubaaï Environmental Foundation to monitor coral reefs using AI, and associate editor Dan joins Stuart to talk about how he's been getting with the new Apple iPhone SE. 
    We also wanted to tell you about our plant a tree initiative we've launched.  
    Pocket-lint has teamed up with Resideo - the new home of Honeywell Home - to plant trees in your name for free. We've already planted 1,000 trees, but we want to plant 3,000 more with your help and on your behalf.
    If we can reach our target of 3,000 trees, it will mean we're offsetting around 900 carbon tonnes. That's the equivalent of over 1,000 return flights from Los Angeles to London, or the average CO2 a family of four uses over 150 years!
    To help us help the environment, all you have to do is tell us the Mac address of a Honeywell smart thermostat that is active in your home or office. The thermostat can be already installed and being used or completely new - but it must be active and you must tell us before the end of April (30 April 2020).
    You can find out more details here.
    00:30 - Mike and Stuart talk Motorola Edge
    05:40 - Patrick Dorsey from Intel and Jason Mitchell from Accenture talk planet saving
    19:00 - Stuart reviews the Apple iPhone SE smartphone
