This week, Jerry returns to the AC Podcast rotation, along with Daniel, Andrew, and Alex, who jump right into Q&A — questions asked by you, the listener!

But that's not all: they talk about the Google Pixel's latest updates, and the excellent sales that have been reported. And the OnePlus 3T, Gear S3 and Google Tango are all now available, but do they live up to expectations?

This week, Andrew, Daniel and Alex get the buying season started early with their favorite gear gifts at any price point.

Plus, the OnePlus 3T is now official, but why does it exist, and what does that mean for the popular and still-great OnePlus 3? And the Galaxy S7 is getting a beta version of Nougat in some countries, but when will it roll out to the rest of us?

Qualcomm unveiled the Snapdragon 835 alongside Quick Charge 4.0, too, and there's a lot of excitement around the new 10nm manufacturing process.

Finally, Samsung is selling the Galaxy Note 3 refurbished this Black Friday, but the team thinks this is a very bad idea.

In this episode, Alex, Andrew, Jerry and Daniel talk about the post-Pixel releases of the year: Google Home, Chromecast Ultra, Daydream, and the new (and improved) Android Auto! There's so much to like, but many of the feature feel like half-measures. 

Also, Nougat is on the verge of getting released broadly, other than the Pixel and a couple recent phones you won't find it beyond beta.

Finally, the Mate 9 is coming soon, but did Huawei do enough to make EMUI usable? Oh, and the HTC Bolt — a Sprint exclusive, but also a good indication of HTC's carrier-focused future.

This week, Alex, Daniel and special guest, MrMobile himself Michael Fisher, talk about Huawei's massive-in-a-few-ways new flagship, the Mate 9. 

How much will Huawei benefit from the Note 7's absence in the market, and will the Mate 9 come to the U.S.? (A lot, and probably!) 

Settle in, this is one you don't want to miss!

This week, Jerry, Daniel and Andrew dive deeper into the Pixel and Pixel XL, discussing the phones' best and worst features after two weeks of use. It's also good news on the earnings front as Google pulled its most profitable quarter ever while LG and Samsung get hit hard.

The Google Pixel is here, and Daniel, Andrew, and Alex dive deep on the Google Phone. From the resemblance to the iPhone (overstated), to the camera (totally amazing) to battery life (good on the Pixel, great on the Pixel XL), there's a lot to discuss, so join us!

Andrew, Alex, and Daniel dive headfirst into the fiery depths of the Note 7 cancellation.

How much did Samsung know before the phone was widely released, and why didn't the company catch what was causing the first batch of phones to overheat before sending replacements? And, ultimately, how will this affect the way people look at Samsung as a company, and its future products?

We're live from the Google Pixel launch event in San Francisco! Andrew, Russell and Flo are on hand to talk about their first impressions of Google's new Pixel phones, along with Daydream View, the Google's first VR headset, and Google Home, Wifi and the new Chromecast Ultra!

Lots to talk about this week, so dig in, it's a good one.

This week, Alex, Jerry, Daniel, and Flo talk about the Google event happening on October 4, and how Google's Pixel phones need something truly special to make a mark on the industry in ways the Nexuses never could.

And BlackBerry is no longer making its own phones. Is that a big deal when the company pledged years ago to be a software company first?

Finally, Android Wear 2.0 has been delayed. Boo! But its scope is much bigger than when it first debuted earlier this year, so when smartwatches finally are released with it, we'll actually have some pretty cool new stuff to look forward to.
