    Fin Part Deux

    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

    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

    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 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.

Missing in my life

I have listened to this podcast since season one. I was with it when it first went off air and now with it again until it’s over again. Look these are people’s opinions on Android, like or hate it they are only human. I enjoy the reviews and honestly I have friends and others turn to me on what phone they should buy next. I thank them for their reviews and in depth opinions. Yes once in awhile they talk about Apple but they have to because that’s the competition. If you think they shouldn’t or closed minded then why don’t you start a podcast and see what other information you can provide without mentioning apple or any other competition. I bet you won’t make it past an episode.

Good Podcast..

New drinking game! Listen to Android Authority and every time Adam says “like” or “so, but...” take a sip. You will be drunk a quarter of the way in! Interesting podcast, lots of good information for tech lovers and the guys seem pretty knowledgeable on the subject. It’s definitely worth subscribing to and listening to.
