Fin Part Deux
This is the last episode of the second season of the Android Authority podcast. That sucks. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have tech to talk about. Adam, Joe, and Jonathan gather for one last time to talk about Motorola’s upcoming flagship, and care for your RAZR. LG is keeping the headphone jack flame a’burnin. And finally, we look back on some other operating systems that have come and gone over the years. RIP webOS, RIP Windows Phone, RIP #AAPodcast
LG’s promise and Google’s experiments
We have a ton of housecleaning to take care of right off the bat including the Moto RAZR, Whatsapp’s dark mode, MWC 2020 and more. Plus, we take a look at LG’s implementation of Android 10 on the LG V50 with dual screen. Speaking of dual screens, Microsoft has some thoughts on how to implement dual screens. Google is experimenting with ways to help you use your phone less, and one of our editors wants you to update apps less often. What’s up with that?
A Samsung fanboy’s wet dream
Fresh off the CES Train, we have some housecleaning to do. We chat about the Escobar Fold, Google hitting a trillion dollar valuation, and in what ways iOS is better than our favorite OS (spoiler alert: not a lot of ways). Our main story is the rumored specifications of the Galaxy S20, especially the S20 Ultra, and it’s 120sorta-Hz screen. We take a deeper look at Bluetooth Audio LE and the LC3 codec along with Bluetooth SIG, and Huawei’s Google loophole is just delightful.
#CES2020 was amazing!
Jonathan Feist leads David Imel, Hadlee Simons, and C. Scott Brown for a roundtable discussion of all the top showings at CES 2020. It was a great show. We’ve got a folding screen laptop from Lenovo, a gorgeous Chromebook from Samsung, new codecs and technologies for Bluetooth, and electrochromic glass. There’s so much to cover and only four of us, but we got it all on the Android Authority podcast!
#CES2020 Preview and Xiaomi’s insecurity
C. Scott Brown joins Joe and Adam to talk about what he’s excited about for CES next week. Looking back on a decade of Android we revisit some of the most iconic Android phones from the 2010s. Plus we look ahead to some things we’d like to see out of phone makers in 2020. Finally, another Wi-Fi camera security concern, this time coming from Xiaomi. All this and some more surprises along the way.

Google vs. Fortnite, Round 2019
It’s the last podcast of the decade and we’re looking back on the 2010s, and 2019, and looking ahead to 2020. What were the biggest tech fails of 2019? What were the best apps? What were the best games? And what will 5G look like in 2020? It’s exciting and it’s all here on the Android Authority Podcast.
